I am interested in all families that settled in the Colonies. The more
people that list their family names and stories (and photos of their
ancestors) on the individual Colony pages, the more likely it is that others
will make connections.

I also would like to hear >from people who have searched the Latvian archives
and found their families on the list of people who left Courland for
Kherson.

ANAPOLSKY from Ekaterinoslav #general

I am trying to trace the descendants of Gersch & Czerne
ANAPOLSKY >from Ekaterinoslav who arrived in New York
on the 'Estonia' out of Libau on January 12 1909 with their
younger children: Sara (14), Velvel (10), Breina (8)
and Marianne (5).Their passage was paid for by an older daughter
(unnamed) living at 873 Cross Street, Philadelphia, PA.
I am especially trying to link them to Nikolai & Alexandra
ANAPOLSKY, a married couple both born around 1905 and
living in Ekaterinoslav, whose descendants still live in Russia.
All suggestions gratefully received - TIA!

Radzilow and Wizna in Pinkas Hakehilot #poland

I've added translations >from 2 chapters (Radzilow and Wizna) in Pinkas
Hakehilot, Polin [Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities, Poland].

http://www.radzilow.com/pinkas.htm
http://www.wizna.com/pinkas.htm

Both towns are in northeastern Poland, in the former Lomza gubernia,
between Lomza and Szczuczyn.

I took the detailed population statistics in the Radzilow chapter,
along with similar statistics found in 3 other sources, and combined
them into one comprehensive table. It makes for an interesting
analysis of population trends in this small town >from 1564 to 1921

Holocaust records: "Rzezak i kantor" #poland

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

In Holocaust-era records for the town of Czestochowa, I find these
three words as a person's profession:

"Rzezak i kantor"

Several native Polish speakers were unable to translate these into
English. Can anyone help with this?

Dan

P.S. In case you are curious, this document includes records for 395
persons. These persons are listed under various categories:

Register of workers of "Jewish Committee District" (with family)
Residents of a house for orphans
Registry of members of management
Registry of workers
Registry of student/children above 14 years old
Persons employed in workshops and co-ops
Registry of sick people
Registry of children up to age 14 years

Here are the surnames included in these records:

Dachau list #poland

Joyce Field
 

Regarding the book on Dachau that Daniel Kazez mentioned in his 25
October posting, perhaps it is worthwhile mentioning again that
JewishGen has been computerizing 122,000 Dachau concentration camp
records, 37,000 of which are already online in the Holocaust Database
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/. Scroll down to the
end of the list and click on to the highlighted file name, which will
take you to the introduction to the Dachau material or do a search by
surname in all the component databases in the Holocaust Database at
the URL mentioned above.

Our volunteers have already entered about 89,000 names. The next
update to the Holocaust Database will add many thousands of names to
those already online. Granted these records contain non-Jews as well
as Jews; however, Jews are always characterized as Jude, as the
Introduction and the Glossary of terms to this file indicate.

Search for Marjorie LEVY in Canada (or maybe England?) #general

Daniel Gee <DanielGee@...>
 

Do you know a lady called Marjorie who would now be 79 years old?
Her maiden name was LEVY. She was born in London in May 1923 approx.
Marjorie had two younger brothers, David LEVY and Morris LEVY.
I think David was killed in an aeroplane accident, in around 1960/70.
David's wife ran off and his children went to live with his brother Morris.
I think Morris died just a couple of years ago; he was living in East
London.
The parents of Marjorie, David and Morris LEVY were Jacob and Selina LEVY.
If you think you may know Marjorie - or any of the above details ring
true...
Please do not hesitate to email me!
Thank you, in advance.

researching: KIRZNER/BAYLIN from Slavuta/Volhynia region #general

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

Hi,

I'm new to the Ukraine group but have spent the last two years digging into
JRI-Poland databases, etc. I can only hope I'll be half as successful in
this part of Russia.

I have just this past week found my great-grandfather's naturalization which
says that he was >from Slavuta in Volhynia. Here is what I know:

My great-grandfather was Solomon KIRZNER (I'm guessing at the spelling
since this is how my mother tells me it sounded, they used the name
KITCHENER while stopping over in Leeds, and they changed the name to SIDMAN
in the US-taking the name of his best friend Sam SIDMAN, also >from Slavuta).
His wife was Minnie BAYLIN. His mother was Sophie BAYLIN.

His best friend Sam SIDMAN's wife was Sarah BAYLIN and Sam's mother was
Celia BAYLIN. So the BAYLIN are pretty well entwined with KIRZNER and
SIDMAN.

Has anyone had success getting records >from the Slavuta region?
Any suggestions on how to proceed?

Thanks,

Marty Meyers

Jewish names based on location #general

irvjs@...
 

I do not dispute that many Jewish names in Germany were based on place-names
with which the person was associated but in my own family I have found some
hard-to explain family names. My ggf, Leib Speier (which is already a place
name, though the Speiers came >from HOF), wrote in the "Family Book" in 1872
that he took the mane HOLSTEIN, though the family; lived near Kassel and had
no apparent connection with the province of Holstein.
Leib Speier-Holstein also traces his ancestry to the PLAUT Family of
Neuenbrunslar, which again is not near Schleswig-Holstein.
Another mystery regarding the "taking" of additional names are the various
descendants of Josef Plaut who added names such as Dannenberg, Stern and
Koenig to the Plaut name.
Often the original name (Plaut, Speier) was dropped and only the newer name
retained by future generations.
