Re: "Schroda and Craetz Prussia" #general

NFatouros@...
 

Susie Stock's 12-10-message asked about "Schroda and Craetz, Prussia".

For "Schroda" (the German spelling), my Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer
referred me to its entry for Sroda, its Polish spelling. There I learned
that the town is on a railroad line, 20 miles southeast of Poznan,in Poznan
province. It has medieval buildings, and its people manufactured machinery,
did weaving, flour milling and sugar beet refining. In 1946 it had a
population of 9,872. (There is also another town called 'Sroda Slaska' west
of Breslaw (Wroclaw).)

As for "Craetz," I had to use my imagination to figure out that this town
was probably 'Gratz,' with a umlaut over the "a." My Columbia-Lippincott
Gazetteer referred me >from its entry for "Gratz," to its entry for
"Grodzisk", which is also on a railroad line, in Poznan province. Besides
machinery manufacturing, it was engaged in distilling and sawmilling. In
1946 it had a population of 6,015. Chester G. Cohen in his Shtetl Finder
Gazetteer lists a number of names for people >from this town.

I could not find any yizkor books listed for either of these two towns.

Re: "Secrets of Berdichev" #general

DavidNSandler@...
 

On the subject of Berdichev, I just learned first-hand a piece of common
knowledge, namely that our ancestors moved around the general area >from
generation to generation. The ZILBERSHTEIN family I am tracing lived in
Chudnov around 1905 but was listed as having come there >from Berdichev.
My researcher found that same family listed in the 1858 tax census in
Zhitomir. Apparently it pays to do a regional search rather than
concentrate on one town. Also, for the first time I have been told of
references to the "Volhynian Provincial News", evidently a newspaper,
related to draft registration notices in 1875; lists of Jewish taxpayers
for the candle tax in 1906, and a 1900 petition of residents concerning
expenditure of the capitation tax. This gives the impression that there
are records out there we haven't even heard of.

Long Island cemeteries - Thanks #general

Nachum <nachum@...>
 

Dear List Members,

Before I go in for another stint of reserve duty (I'm getting to old for
this), I'd like to thank everyone who helped on
my request for an e-mail for the Beth David cemetery.

There is no e-mail, but several people were kind enough to call the
cemetery, and I got some usefull information.

As to the Young Israel buriel section, there are sections at both Beth David
(an older used up section), as well as
at Beth Moses (a newer section).

I would especially like to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers
for Israel. Especially in these troubled times, everyones prayer counts. I
can't speak for anyone else living in Israel, but, I for one, am very
greatfull.

Yiddish Literature web site #yiddish

David W. Harris <dharris1@...>
 

This is in response to the message >from Bob Linett regarding his Yiddish
author search (Isaac Joel LINETSKY). Volume 2 of Zalman Zylbercweig's
Lexicon von Yiddishe Theatre carries a biographical account of Yitzhok
Yoel Linetsky beginning in column 1092. Copies are sometimes available at
major libraries and might be obtained through interlibrary loan. The
material will be in Yiddish and is usually limited to the professional
endeavors rather than family ties.

Another resource available to those researching Yiddish authors is the
Mendele web site and their email subscriptions. More information can be
found at:

http://shakti.trincoll.edu/~mendele/

Their focus is on the literature and usage of Yiddish, and they often
carry requests for information regarding Yiddish authors. They identify
themselves as a moderated mailing list dedicated to the lively exchange of
views, information, news and just about anything else related to the
Yiddish language and Yiddish literature.

Good luck to all in their searches.
