Rosenthal & Monne from Suwalki #lithuania

judith <j.larsen@...>
 

Hi All
I am a new member here and an researching the surnames of ROSENTHAL and
MONNE. On Rose Rosenthal death certificate here in New Zealand it lists
her Father as Israel ROSENTHAL and her mother Hanne ( maiden surname of
) MONNE. Rose' certificate says she was born in Suwalki about 1857.
She died in New Zealand. Any help would be very much appreciated as I
tried to search the database and MONNE comes up as Man.
Thanking you in advance

Osiek Project at Sandomierz Archives - vital records have been indexed! #poland

Orit Lavi <orit@...>
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

The Jewish Records Indexing - Poland project is happy to announce that
the indices to all the Jewish vital records of Osiek have been indexed
by the JRI-Poland team in Warsaw as part of the Sandomierz Polish State
Archives (PSA) Project. There are no LDS films for this town, so this
project covers all available records >from Osiek. Registration in Osiek
started only in 1888, and prior to that, Osiek Jews were registered in
nearby towns, primarily Staszow.

Osiek is located at latitude 50 31', longitude 21 27', 13 miles
(20 km) E of Staszow, 9 miles (15 km) NE of Polaniec, 11 miles (18 km )
south of Klimontow, in the Sandomierz area, Radom gubernia.

Jews first settled in Osiek in the early years of the 19th century. In
1857 the number of Jews in Osiek totalled 154, and it grew to 539 in
1921. In October 1942 Osiek's ghetto was liquidized and the Jews were
sent to Treblinka.

If you have relatives coming >from Osiek or >from the neighbouring towns
such as Staszow, Koprzywnica, Klimontow, Bogoria and Polaniec
('Plontch'), this is an exceptional opportunity to find out more on your
family.

SUMMARY OF OSIEK RECORDS BEING INDEXED

There are nearly 500 records being indexed as part of this project,
covering 14 years between 1888 and 1902, as follows:

Birth - 309, Grooms: 72, Brides: 72, Deaths: 114.

SURNAMES FOUND IN THE NEW INDICES

These are the most common surnames found in the Osiek indices:

GROSCHAUZ

RAICHMAN

GOLDCHAR

ZILBERBERG

RAJFER

CITRYN CYTRIN

SZTERKMAN SZTRAKMAN

ROZNER

KLAJNER KLAINER

BRAUM

SZWARCCHAR SZWARCCHAUR

ERLICH

CINAMON CYNAMON

CHOFMAN OFMAN

BARANEK

A list of all surnames appearing in the Osiek indices is now online at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/osiek_surn.htm

If you would like to know the number of times any surname appears in
the new indices or more about the Osiek project, please contact me at:
orit@olavi.co.il

o FUNDING THE OSIEK PSA PROJECT

To make this happen, we must fund this effort! Eventually all of these
records will be posted on the Internet on the JRI-Poland database (at
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl ), but they will not be publicly
available until our town's project has been fully funded through
contributions. The estimated project cost is 120 US dollars to cover the
cost of the index pages and the data entry.

A donation (tax-deductible in the U.S.) of any amount is greatly
appreciated. All researchers who contribute a minimum of $ 40 are
eligible to obtain an EXCEL spreadsheet with all indices in the Osiek
project for their own personal research.

Here's how to make a donation: Donations can now be accepted by check,
VISA or MasterCard! Please earmark your donation for the "Osiek PSA
project". Mail checks to:

MANILEVICH 1906 Kiev Gubernia Duma Voters List #general

Shirley Manuel <szmanuel@...>
 

Hello,

I was very happy to have read the 1906 Kiev Gubernia
Duma Voter's List where I read my paternal
grandfather's name and discovered his father's name,
also.
However, what does remain a mystery is that
grandfather's name appears twice on the List as:
Yankel MANILEVICH Vasilkov, and
Kopel MANILEVICH Vasilkov

Does anyone know a reason why his name would be listed
twice?
In Yiddish, Kopel is the diminutive for Yaakov and
Yankel also means Yaakov.
Thanks for your help.

Proper form of address & how to find towns and counties in the US #general

hanna <hannakg@...>
 

A posting on 1/8, regarding proper form of addresses, leads me to repeat
the question I have been unsuccessful in posting

Where to find US counties in which towns and cities are located. I have
found a site for Massachusetts which lists the counties and all their
towns (not alpha by town, unfortunately) but nothing comparable for any
other state. Any suggestions?

Actors' 1900 Arrival and Court Case #yiddish

David Harris <dorsharris@...>
 

This is a follow-up to my earlier message about the arrival in New York of
nearly 20 Yiddish theater actors and actresses on September 14, 1900.

It seems that the playwright Moses Horowitz, was the Director of the
Windsor Theater as it prepared for its 1900-1901 season. In order to
assemble a cast for the series of performances, Horowitz went to Europe to
recruit a troupe of actors and actresses. At the same time, the Hebrew
Actors' Protective Union, represented by the Yiddish actor Sezar Greenberg,
went to the immigration's Barge office to stop Horowitz and the Windsor
Theater >from bringing the new performers into the country, requesting
they be deported. Greenberg alleged that the Windsor owners were paying
for the ocean passage of the new troupe with funds that were intended for
members of the Hebrew Actors' Union.

The ship arrived on September 14 and the 15th of September New York Times
carried an article that the commissioner was considering the case. The
issue was ultimately resolved in favor of Horowitz and the Windsor Theater.

An interesting sidelight to this issue was that Sezar Greenberg was a
nominal son-in-law of Moses Horowitz. The actress, Charlotte Horowitz, was
identified as the "adopted daughter" of Moses Horowitz. Whether or not
there was an official adoption is unsure. More likely, it was a theatrical
undertaking. Charlotte then married Sezar Greenberg, thereby pitting the
"father" and "son-in-law" in the case against each other.

Dear Genners Down Under,

My somehow relative Abraham MANDELBROIT/MANDELBROTE or any
spelling was born in /near Vilna about 1870/ 1860's. It is
said that he had sisters who went to Australia.
This is of course like looking for a couple of needles in a

I am hoping someone will recognise the name Mandelbrote.
Or perhaps someone can suggest how I investigate a couple of
married ladies with the maiden name of Mandelbrote.
Thank you
