Przemysl Archive Project #general

RivkaLCJ@...
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

I have volunteered to be the Coordinator for the Przemysl Archive
Project. The holdings of the archives contain the following 19th century
birth, marriage and death record:

Town Births Marriages Deaths
Jaroslaw 180 131 38
Oleszyce 2040 101 1508
Przemysl 16104 1244 17864
Radymno 73 39

Indexing of these records will be completed under the auspices of Jewish
Records Indexing - Poland's (JRI-PL) Polish State Archive (PSA) project.
To facilitate the Przemysl Archive project Town Leaders and Co-town
leaders are needed. More information about the JRI-PL indexing project
can be found at <http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/>;.

Ilan Blech has volunteered to be the town leader for the City of
Przemysl. Volunteers are needed for the other towns. If you are
interested in these towns or in volunteering to help with the project
please contact me. <rivkalcj@aol.com>

Having the records indexed will make it easier for all of us to find
records of our ancestors.

Chag Samaach,
Roberta Cohen Jainchill

If you have a relative who lived in Harrisburg, PA and who was a
member of Kesher Israel, an Orthodox Congregation, I can check the
cemetery Index for you to see if, in fact, that relative is buried in
KI's cemetery.

My information covers the years >from "inception" through 12/31/93. If
you have a query contact me privately at the email address below:

Brotherly names #latvia

Andrea Vangor <drav@...>
 

I have discovered that a man named Solomon Abraham/Abram BENDER might be the
brother of Abraham Fischel BENDER. They were born 12-15 years apart and
both immigrated to Bridgeport CT >from "Russia" -- I know that Abraham F.
came >from Kraziai, Lithuania, and have some evidence that Solomon A. came
from Vilna. Each had a father named Meyer, and with any luck this Meyer
BENDER or BINDER will turn out to be the same person.

When one of Solomon A.'s sons died the tombstone recorded his father's name
as Sholem Abba. So here is the question: is Abraham or Abram a different
name than Abba? Would two brothers ever have a given name in common? I am
sure there is a connection between these two men, if that matters.

Thanks, Andrea Vangor

Relatives Given Up for Adoption #general

Ed Posnak <ed@...>
 

Fellow Genners:

I have recently uncovered evidence that 4 female cousins of mine were
orphaned around 1900 or 1901 in New York City. They stayed with relatives
until three of them were taken away by the local authorities, presumably
to be given up for adoption.

I have their names and months/years of birth - two of them were born in
NYC. Does anyone know how I could possibly find out what happened to
them? Which agencies deal with this sort of thing?

The names are Sarah POSNAK, Bessie POSNAK, and Mary POSNAK. Their parents
were Roze and Yehudi (Julius) POSNAK. The sister who did *not* get taken
away was Pauline (Pearl) POSNAK, who died about 10 years ago. Any
help/advice would be appreciated.
