Zolkiewka indexed by JRI-Poland! #general

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

Dear fellow genners

The Jewish Records Indexing - Poland project is pleased to announce
that the indices to the Jewish vital records of Zolkiewka - not
filmed by the Mormons - have now been indexed by the JRI-Poland team
in Warsaw as part of the Zamosc Polish State Archives (PSA) project.

Zolkiewka is located ca. 40 km south-east of Lublin, 35 km north-west
of Zamosc at location 50 deg. 54 min. N, 22 deg. 20 min. E.

The database covers the years 1881, 1883-91, 1893-98 and contains
2005 entries. In addition it will include the years 1831, 1834, 1836,
1839 not contained in the LDS films; those 4 years are in order but
have not yet been received >from Lublin Archives.

Nearby town names seen in the LDS years >from Zolkiewka are Borow,
Bzowiec, Gorszkow, Plonka, Rudnik, Szczbrezeszyn, Turobin,
Wierzchowina, Wysokie to mention just a few that spring first to mind.

Some of the surnames found most often in the Zolkiewka indices:

AJCHENBLAT 12, BENDEL 18, BIGEL 13, CHOCHMAN 36, CUKER 18,
FASZYNG/FASZYNK 18/3, FELMAN 39, FIRER 17, FLASZER 15, GERECHT 44,
GERSZMAN 17, GLIKMAN 20, GONIKMAN 14, KAC 16, KATC 34, KORN 22,
KUNA 23, LAUFER 18, LIBSTER 17, MILSZTAJN/MILSZTEJN 15/4,
PELC 69, ROTMAN 23, ROZENBLAT 20, RUBIN 29, SZER 17, WAGNER 41,
WINER 18.

A list of all surnames appearing in the Zolkiewka PSA file is online
at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/Zolkiewka.htm.

If you want to know the number of times any surname appears in the
new indices or more about Zolkiewka and the Zamosc PSA Project,
please contact me.

And there more, just as exciting news: A fantastic database with extensive
extractions >from the 1810-25 vital records of Zolkiewka has
recently been donated to JRI-Poland >from Jerry Schneider and will be
online on JRI-Poland shortly. It will take your breath away when you
see it.

I truly think Zolkiewka must be one of the so far best documented
towns in Poland.


24 other towns in the Zamosc area are part of the Zamosc project and
we still need Town Leaders for:

Jarczow,
Josefow,
Laszczow and
Tomaszow Lubelski.

Please contact me if you think you can help or have an interest in
any of these towns.

Best wishes and Shana tova to you all

Re: Benno: the name #general

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

According to the Oxford dictionary of first names Benno is the German
medieval short form of various Germanic names containing the word
'bern' (bear), thus it is not a Jewish name. It was used as short
form for Benedict (not Benjamin).

Jewish saloon owners and notaries in Lithuania? #lithuania

Re: How to research a name change? #general

sallybru <sallybru@...>
 

Merle Kastner asked about name changes and how to research them. In reply,
a genner said:

"When one applied for citizenship a certificate of arrival was issued to
verify that the person did indeed enter the US, on what date and which
port."

This is fine-if your family came late. But you need to remember the
naturalization process changed over time. When my family came, and for
most people who had naturalizations before 1906, they were asked little
and the various citizenship papers say little. You get only "I give up
allegiance to the King of ____". One cousin was asked, in 1906, where he
was born (Marseilles of all things, he came >from Polish Russia) and that
he gives upallegiance to the King (crossed out for Czar) of Russia. And
the names of 2 witnesses.

No port, no date, no names.

You are lucky if you have people who came later-at least for genealogical
information.

JewishGen Annual New Year Donor Appeal #southafrica

Bramie Lenhoff <lenhoff@...>
 

Dear Friends:

As we prepare to celebrate the New Year please take a moment to consider
that JewishGen provides us with the vital source for our ongoing
genealogical research. JewishGen is still one of the only genealogical
sites free to us, but not free to JewishGen, which must bear the monthly expense
of providing all the resources we use daily without a second thought. These
are costs that must be met to overcome the current shortfall.

To continue as a public service institution, JewishGen has launched the
first Annual New Year Donor Appeal. The goal is to raise $300,000 to carry
us through to the end of 2002 and to acquire the necessary hardware and
software applications for improved databases scheduled to begin going online
by October. There are two million records >from Yad Vashem and other
sources waiting to be made available to us!

The SA SIG is currently working on various projects and the costs of
preparing and keeping them available on line must be met before they are
added to the JewishGen servers.

The financial support of each and every one of us is needed if JewishGen is
to continue as the only free site for Jewish genealogical research. Give
what you can afford, be it $25, the suggested annual minimum, or $100 (or
more) which will enroll you in the JGFFAlert. This is a system that informs
you via immediate e-mail if another researcher enters data into the JGFF
that has the potential of linking to your family names.

Please go now to
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/contribute.ihtml . With your
permission, your name will be listed on a special 2002 Annual New Year Donor
Appeal recognition site. We are asking that all our users make a donation
to the very
best of their financial ability. Consider scheduling a monthly deduction
from your credit card if this works best for you.
On behalf of JewishGen and the SA SIG, our very best wishes
for a healthy, happy and peaceful New Year.
