SZARACZKIEWICZ family #general

Judy Burger <judyb2@...>
 

Dear Genners
My grandmother, Brocha Szaraczkiewicz, >from Lomza / Zambrow landed at
Ellis Island in 1907. Family myth tells that one of her children died
while en route on the ship. Any advice on how to locate information on
this event, or the ship name and manifest, using just her name?

Bialystok-Shtetl or Not????????/ #general

BABYCAT3 <babycat3@...>
 

I understand that Bialystok was/is quite a large area back in the days of
my ancestors. Would the shtetl have been Bialystok itself (I presume
probably not), or can anyone tell me the names of some of the shtetls that
were within the Bialystok limits or just on the outskirts of it? I am
aware of the towns Krinki and Orla, but while I still have Where We Once
Walked on loan, I would love to make a list of the shtetls for future
reference in the Bialystok vicinities since I have no clue as to what
shtetls my families came from. I am not even sure if I am using the book
correctly. My pggrandfather lived on Ul. Bransky 14 in Bialystok, might
that street have been part of a specific shtetl area?
Thank you so much.

My father, Samuel Leikach(became Lakin at the border), landed in Quebec
City in 1921 and took the train to Detroit on his was to Marcellus,
Michigan. When I became a US Citizen in 1963, having been born in Canada,
the Immigration official who gave me my oral exam and happened to be
Jewish, asked me my roots. He sent downstairs and retrieved my father's
original papers when he applied for citizenship to the US.

or write to International Commission...POBox 1163..Wall St. Station..

I have no direct interest in this, but it was sent to me by someone who
thought it would be of interest to someone on Jewishgen.

the Prussian administration [ Lomza and the surrounding area becoming

here during these years.

Many thanks

Berea Shul #southafrica

Louis Zetler <zetler@...>
 

The striking feature of the Berea shul was the huge angle's wings on the
sides of the aron hakodesh.

The shul was known for the late Rabbi Aloy, its famous chazonim (Dudu Fisher
started out his carrier there) and choir.

I used to be the chairman of the nearby Etz Chayim shul. Sadly, the area has
degenerated quickly over the past few years as the Jews moved out. Areas
like Hillbrow and Berea have become "no go" areas for whites.

My grandfather Max Rosenbloom and family moved >from NYC to Wynona, MN,

information about such a family in Wynona?

Re: Changing names - how was it done? #general

On January 6,2001 Allan Jordan asked:

Has anyone looked into how someone changed their name at the turn of the
century in the United States? Did our ancestors wake up one morning and
say I want an American name and just start calling themselves by their new
name?
It has been my experience that *legal* name changes in the USA
took place at the time of naturalization. On the Petition for
Naturalization there was also a section where the petitioner could
legally change his name. I have a petition for naturalization for my
grandfather's brother in 1917 where this was done.

Other relatives who filed Declaration of Intention, but never followed
up with naturalization, just assumed a name that was the same as those
who legally changed their names. Others did not change their names at
the time of naturalization, but just assumed/used the names used by
other family members.

Another example is that my grandmother signed an affidavit stating
that the name used by one of my uncles was to be his legal name ---not
the name listed on his Ohio birth certificate.
