Boxing - Lower East Side #general

S Morochnick <bodiam@...>
 

Would anyone know of a good resouce for Jewish Boxers in the Lower East
Side, Manhattan during the 1920's -30's? My grandfather and one of his
brothers boxed in a building called the "Christen Dora House" (spelling
uncertain). I understand the building housed the NYC Welfare Department in
the 1950's and 60's.

Thanks,
Stephen Morochnick

finding friends/relatives thru Israel Radio #general

Charutz <yairharu@...>
 

I hope that some of you out there can help me. I have heard that there is a
program on one of the channels of Israel Radio where people try to trace
friends or relatives with whom they have lost contact at some point in time.
This even includes people who try to trace people who may have survived the
Holocaust and have been "missing" for fifty years or more.

I do not know what the success rate of the program is, but I do believe that
there have been occasional successes.

My question is, do any of you know of this program? At which times and on
what station does it appear? This information would be very useful to me and
maybe even to orher Israelis involved in genealogical researches.

TIA

BLODINGER in Mendoza, Argentina #general

NewsEast Earthlink <w4npx@...>
 

I have been researching the surname Blodinger which I believe originated in
Jaroslaw.

Recently while searching the Internet, I came across three persons by that
surname in Mendoza, Argentina.

I tried to make email contact with two of these persons to determine the
origins of their family, but after some period of time and several emails, I
have had not success in receiving a response. I have names, both email and
postal addresses and telephone numbers for these people in Mendoza, but all
my attempted correspondence has been in English. I am concerned that I have
not received a reply because they do not understand or speak English.

I wonder if there is anyone on this newsgroup who is bilingual in both
English and Spanish and lives near Mendoza who might be willing to telephone
these parties or otherwise aid me in trying to get an answer as to whether
these Mendoza Blodinger are knowledgable in their family background and
would be willing to share same with me.

If there is anyone who could help, I would appreciate an email direct to me
and I will give more information.

My email address is w4npx@...

Thank you,

Robert H. Blodinger

Swislocz - Sislevich in Yiddish #general

Bernard Lis
 

I just borrowed a copy of a book (paperback) called "Voices >from the
Yiddush", edited by Irving Howe and Eliezer Greenberg. Published by the
University of Michigan Press 1972..
it's a collection of essays, memoirs, diaries >from many different people.
One chapter that I read was"Swislocz: Portrait of a Shtetl" by abraham Ain.
This is the town that my father was from.

In the census of 1847 there were 997 Jews. in 1897 there were 2,086 Jews
out of a total of 3,099 people.
The book describes what life was like in about 21 pages.
No names are mentioned.

In a US record (WWI registration), a relative said he was born in
Trostiantsa, Bratislavski District, Podolski Gubernia. I reproduce these
here exactly as he spelled them. Another document lists Dashev as his
place of origin.

Using the ShtetlSeeker does not help me here for there are too many towns
with similar names, and the coordinates do not help me determine the
gubernia or district (uyezd) without having other resources at my
disposal.

I would appreciate any help or suggestions. Thanks.

Joan Rosen
Joan,

This is most probably village Trostyanets at 4831 2911, some 35 miles SSW
from Dashev in Podolia. Town is located in the middle of the triangle fomed
by the towns Tul'chin, Bershad' and Gaysin, places with the rich Jewish
history of the Podolia in the past.

District "Bratislavski" should read: "Bratslavski", the seat od Bratslav
(Braclaw), where the famous mystic Rabbi Nachman once lived.

Genesis of surnames #lithuania

George Mason <gmason3815@...>
 

While researching my ancestors in Lithuania (NATHANSON in Dotnuva and Plunge and MOZESON in Kovno), I came across the information that surnames did not come in to standard use until 1810-1830. My question is this: how did people go about picking a surname in the first place? Did Nathanson become Nathanson because the elder of the family at that time was named Nathan or was there some other formula or procedure used? Did the local Rabbi assign names to families? Does anyone have any information about this subject that they would be willing to share?

Thanks,
