The family name in Prussian Poland was MUIT or MUT. A brother who
lived in Philadelphia took the surname SHAW. I would love to find
the descendants of this man.

Tsymety Pytel -- Jewish? #general

Mitchell Balish <rebeccabalish@...>
 

A while back I received a family tree >from a distant cousin of mine
who had researched our common ancestry. He apparently gleaned this
information >from Polish records, but I don't have a sense of the
extent to which he anglicized the spellings. I think it may have
been considerable, as among the surnames are "Milstein" and "Kalish."

In any event, according to this material, one of my ggg-grandmothers,
born in Poland in 1828, was named Tsymety Pytel. I may not be an
expert, but this doesn't strike me as a Jewish name (whatever that
means). Has anyone come across Pytel as a Jewish name? And does
anyone have any idea what Tsymety might really be? Thanks.

Success using All UK Database #unitedkingdom

Many thanks to the members of JGS of GB for their contribution of the All
UK Database. For many years I've been searching for the Austria family from
London and
today found an ancestor. Moses Austria died in 1912 and is buried at the
Edmonton Federation Cemetery in London. Is there anyone planning on
visiting this cemetery who would be willing to photograph his stone? Will
reimburse for time and expenses.
Thanks,

STREMER surname, Schattau / Satov #general

June <stremj@...>
 

My family migrated to the United States in the 1880's. They came >from a
small village in Austria called Schattau. The village was annexed by
the Czech Republic after world War II and is now named Satov.
I should like to know if anyone is familiar with this village. Was
there a significant Jewish presence in the village. Was there a
synagogue and a Jewish cemetery?
Can anyone direct me to links and sources for the Austrian Sudetenlands?

To which Stan Goodman replied:
The best advice is to remember that, even in the early 21st century, the
Internet is not the best source for everything; the best maps are still
printed on paper, and they are readily available, certainly in the US, and
certainly for Israel. They are also far easier to use than online maps.
I heartily concur with Stan that paper maps are generally easier to use and
more complete than online maps. I use something like MapQuest to search
for and give a general location of a site, particularly one that may be
difficult to find on a detailed map. I then locate it on the paper map to
seek out additional information.

Carol is very fortunate to live within the area served by one of the
largest and most active JGSs, the JGS of Palm Beach County. I am sure that
if she brought her question to one their monthly meetings, several people
would be glad to help her. I am the Membership Chair of that JGS and I
have 2 maps of Israel that show Erez. I would be glad to lend them to her.
In addition to Stan's suggestions, I suggest Carol could check the atlases
at some of the fine libraries in the area.

1909 Chicago address conversion table online #general

Mimi Katz <GeveretKatz@...>
 

The system of numbering home addresses changed, in Chicago, in 1909.

For those of you researching addresses in Chicago, the website "A Look of
Cook" http://www.alookatcook.com/ has a new link that shows the old versus
the new addresses. If you locate a pre-1909 address on the table, it will
tell you post-1909 address. You can find the table at
http://www.chsmedia.org/househistory/1909snc/start.pdf This is
particularly necessary for locating someone in the 1910 census if you have
an address >from an earlier year.

In addition, there is also a link for business address conversions, though I
could not get it to work properly.

AUERHAHN family history - help wanted #general

Bob <rauerhah@...>
 

We have a rather small group of direct relatives in the United States all
having Jewish heritage dating back to the mid-1800's where we can trace my
great-great Grandfather back to Hessen, Germany.

I have been corresponding with an AUERHAHN in Munich, Germany who has done
much genealogical research and he can trace his Auerhahn family tree back to
about the same time, using mainly Catholic church records, since his tree is
all Catholic.

Both trees dead-end in the mid to early 1800's.

We've got lots of theories, but can anyone add some insight as to similar
conversions in that timeframe. We think we're related way back.

There are other branches that escaped >from Poland and elsewhere before WWII
and many Auerhahn's outside of Germany did die during the war. We are aware
of some of these branches too, in the U.S. and South America, and they all
seem to have Jewish heritage as well.

Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

SAULL Family from Brooklyn #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

I'm searching for descendants of Jennie WOLINSKY SAULL (not a misspelling),
b. c1883. I find the person I hope to be her in the 1920 (street name
illegible) & 1930 (7 East New York Ave) Brooklyn censuses:

Louis SAULL - b. 1882
Jennie - b. 1882
Lillian b. 1906
Irving b. 1909 (I found a 1994 address for an Irving SAULL on
*** Stacey Lane, Smithtown, NY, & dates for this man on the Social
Security Death Index)
Gertrude b. 1911
Alfred b. 1913
Milton b. 1915

Jennie was the daughter of Leah WOLINSKY & unknown father. (I don't think
they were married.) In an old photo (undated) I find Leah & Jennie &
Jennie's grown-up daughter "Scheindel" (who must be either Lillian or
Gertrude).

Does anyone know of this family? It took me years to even find these clues,
because I didn't know about the unusual spelling of the surname.

Please respond privately.

Best, Steve Orlen
