Reunion of Descendants of Szolim Lejzor SOKOLIK #general

Leonard J. Schwartz <lennyjay@...>
 

We are looking for any descendants of Szolim Lejzor SOKOLIK, who was born
about 1810 in Lomza, Poland. He was married to Brajna (aka Chaja)
Dawidowna, who died before 1849. Szolim died on October 9, 1855 in Gac,
Poland. He was survived by at least two children: Dawid Sokolik and Abram
Sokolik. He may also have had a daughter named Raska Sokolik and/or a son
named Izrael.

Dawid married Estera Malka Idzkowna Radowska on February 20, 1849 and they
had three children: Wolf Zyskind Sokolik, Moszk Chaim Sokolik and Szolim.
Moszk, in turn, married Sora Gitla Bursztyn and they had ten (count-em,
ten) children, >from whom many of the Sokoliks are descended. The children
are Doba Fejda Sokolik, Cyrla Leia Sokolik, Chaja Sokolik, Dawid Sokolik,
Mariam Mindel Sokloik, Benjamin Sokolik, Rywka Sokolik, Neszka Sokolik,
Bejla Sokolik and Rochla Sokolik.

Abram Sokolik, Szolim’s other son, had six children, Brajna Bejla Sokolik,
Jszk Moszk Sokolik, Rejzia Sokolik, Chana Gitla Sokolik, Maryem Sokolik,
and Mejer Sokolik, with his first wife, Zelda Majerowna Kapla. And, not to
be outdone by his brother, he had nine (9) more children with his second
wife, Sara Basa Moszkowna/Zuckor (a total of 15 children). These children
are Chaim Mortek Sokolic, Sender Zyskind Sokolik, Baila Sokolik, David
Sokolik, Peshe Sokolic, Esther Malcha Sokolik, Harry Sokolik, Juszk
Sokolik and Joseph Sokolik.

Chana Gitla Sokolik married Aron Notek Isman and they had Meyer, Louis,
Sam, Harry, Zelda (who was married to David Sokolik, her half uncle),
Edward, Rachel and Raszka. When they immigrated to the States, Aron
changed his name to Nathan Eastman (or Esstman).

Of Abram's second family:

Chaim Mortek (Hyman) Sokolic, a baker, stayed in England (where the
ASokolic@ spelling may have been adopted) before immigrating to the US.
He had 4 children: Moshe David, Joseph Maxwell (whose name was spelled
ASocolick@), Esther Sokolic Tucker, and Anna Celia Sokolic Newman.

Sender Zyskind (Sander or Sam) Sokolik had 8 children: Pesza and Bendet
(both of whom died as children), Morris, Julius, Abraham, Fanny, Bertha,
and Sophie.

Baila Sokolik Zimmerman had 10 children: David Louis, Joseph, Rose, Anna,
Rachel, Ceila, Albert, Esther, Irv, and Izrael (Izzy).

Peshe Sokolik Kornicks had 14 children: Louis, Fanny, Gus, Rae, Joe (Dick),
Frieda, Morris, Max, Abe (Zeke), Rose, Charles (Chuck), Rebecca (Betty),
Israel (Irvin), Hyman.

David Sokolik had 3 children: Ruth, Anne, and Herman.

Harry Sokolik had 4 children: Morris (Butch), David, Joseph, and Regina.

Joseph Sokolik had 4 children: Albert, Irvin, Rose, and Martin.

Esther Malch Sokolik Simon had 4 children by her first husband: Estelle,
Florence, Beatrice, and Frieda, and one by her second husband: Jack Light.

Juszk Sokolik died in infancy.

We are holding a reunion of descendants in 2005. If you are a descendant of
Szolim, please contact me so that you may be added to our mailing list of
descendants (and I can add you to our growing family tree).

Is it possible to find NYC directory name by date? #general

FCM <skylark2@...>
 

My relative arrived in NY on October 16, 1904. The ship record said he and
family were going to his sister-in-law Mrs. Harris K........ (I cannot read
the name), at 235 East 102 Street, NYC. I have no idea who this lady is.
Is there a way to get a city directory or cross directory with that address
to find out who the name actually is? Thank you for help and suggestions.

Re: Schirrhoffen GRADWOHL #france

Bernie Hirsch <bernie06@...>
 

Hi Linda,

Concerning another branch of my family. I am looking for information of
Fanny KAHN (b: January 17, 1857) Schirrhoffen. Family lore says she
owned/ran a company (comb & brush or hair net) factory before she came
to the USA in 1910. She is also supposed to have married (or almost
married)someone named Gradwohl. How do I research the years after the
FHC records end.
My research shows a GRADWOHL family in Schirrhoffen at that time. The
father is Salomon Gradwohl and the mother is Marie Ann Liebschutz (born
in about 1829) -- they married 21 Mar 1866 in Schirrhoffen. I show one son
-- Germaine Gradwohl -- born 20 Apr 1867 and one daughter --
Pauline Gradwohl -- born 6 Feb 1873 all in Schirrhoffen.

Kind regards,

For those who may need or desire to write to French Mairies, but do not
feel that they have necessary language skills, there is a French
Resource Guide, available at all FHC for a small fee (@ $.50 US), which
in addition to helpful general information about research in France,
gives examples of letters for one to copy.

Research for Gora Kalwaria #rabbinic

Andre Poliszuk <andpol@...>
 

I am writing to you because I am doing some research but I have very
limited information which came >from my mother's failing memory.
Apparently her great grand father was a very well known rabbi (she
used the term tzaddik, which I would be careful about) who lived in
the town of Gora Kalwaria and was already deceased prior to WWII.
However, his wife, my mother's great grand mother, went to the US,
I believe prior to the war. My Mom remembers that she was at their
apartment in Warsaw, there was a long lineup of people that came to
greet her (and women would kiss her hand) prior to her departure,
and that the trip was arranged by the chassidim >from the US. My
mother was born in Warsaw in 1923, therefore she was probably in her
early teens at that time. Unfortunately I do not have their name,
and I am hoping to find it with the above information. Can anyone
help me?

Sincerely,

A biography of the Malbim can be found in Isser Frenkel's "Men of
Distinction, Biographies of Great Rabbis," Sinai Publishing, 2nd
Edition, 1967.

There is probably something also in the Jewish Encyclopedia.

I have information that indicates some of my Bieber ancestors were >from

Does anyone know anything abt this town or have a similar connection?

where is Romanov(o)? #belarus

Stephen Warshall <s_warshall@...>
 

The shtetl called Romanov(o) has been turning up on the SIG site,
clearly located in Romanovskaya volost, Slutsk uyezd.

The Shtetl Seeker, however, can't seem to find it. The only
Romanovos in its database are over 160 miles >from Slutsk,
presumably not in Slutsk uyezd.

I believe that "my" Romanovo is within 20 miles of Slutsk, probably
to the west. Does anybody have a precise location (ideally with a
source for the info)?

By the way, since a name like Romanov would surely be changed
by the Revolution, and one of the many Leninos in Belarus is just
west of Slutsk, one can't help wondering if that might be the place.
But that's just a wild guess; does anybody know?

Thanks.
