summer with an emphasis and field trip in New York City

Searching for info on KOGAN ancestors from Kishinev #bessarabia

Daniyel Berchenko
 

Hello Bessarabia List Members,

I've been trying to map more of the branch of my family that was from
Kishinev. My great-grandmother Rukhla KOGAN was born there in Kishinev
around 1892. Her brothers were Herschel, Samuel, and Abram. Her sister
was Sonya. Their father was Gersh KOGAN. I would love to find out his
wife's name, and any siblings they may have had, and their parent's
names. If anyone happens to have any info or leads that may be
helpful, I would be grateful if you could share!

Thanks,
Daniel Berchenko

Niepolomice Books of Residents #poland

Howard Fink
 

I am pleased to announce that JRI-Poland has just added a new collection
to our online database. Niepolomice is a town located about halfway
between Krakow and Bochnia.

These records include the entries >from lists created at three different
times: 1870, 1881 and 1891. Entries for some people were inserted during
the in-between years, as necessary, for instance a child born in 1875
was added to the 1870 list with his birthdate. A comment in our match
results will indicate each person whose record appeared to have been
added later.

Each match will include all the members of that household in our indexed
results (even if the surnames are different).

Researchers will also get a link to an image of the actual page in the
record book for every person matched in our online database.

A list of the surnames, and the quantity of times they appear, is
available here:
http://jri-poland.org/psa/niepolomice_bor_surn.htm

JRI Poland #Poland Niepolomice Books of Residents #poland

Howard Fink
 

I am pleased to announce that JRI-Poland has just added a new collection
to our online database. Niepolomice is a town located about halfway
between Krakow and Bochnia.

These records include the entries >from lists created at three different
times: 1870, 1881 and 1891. Entries for some people were inserted during
the in-between years, as necessary, for instance a child born in 1875
was added to the 1870 list with his birthdate. A comment in our match
results will indicate each person whose record appeared to have been
added later.

Each match will include all the members of that household in our indexed
results (even if the surnames are different).

Researchers will also get a link to an image of the actual page in the
record book for every person matched in our online database.

A list of the surnames, and the quantity of times they appear, is
available here:
