I have a professional photo with the following info on the back;

Institut Photographique
Sigismond & Co.
A Varsovie
111 Marszalkowska

This is >from a photo of my grandmother, taken sometime before
she came to the US in 1905. I am trying to pinpoint the town she
came from. I believe it would be in the Warsaw area.

Varsovie is Warsaw in French, and of course Marszalkowska is a famous
street in Warsaw.

Berko #general

Avrohom Krauss <avkrauss@...>
 

"Berko" is a form of Ber, as in Dov-Ber. The "ko" Slavic suffix is similar
to "ki" or "ik" still in use- especially in Israel(as in "Shmulik" for
Shmuel or "Tzviki" for Tzvi. (It is not Baruch or Reuven). It does not come
from the surname "Berkowitz" but, rather, Berkowitz is a patronymic coming
from the personal name "Ber."

KUPETZ/Poland and WILDMAN/Poland #general

HERMYN@...
 

This is a long shot, but aren't they all!
Ksiel KUPETZ of Zamosc, or Krasnabrod or Lublin vicinity.
Labish WILDMAN of the same Lublin vicinity probably. As far as I know, they
never made it out, but maybe their children did.

Thanks to all and a happy Thanksgiving/

Re: Looking for documents #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

Have you tried JRI-PP which has indexed many, many existing Polish
records. Cemetery records in Poland are few and far between-check the
Mormon Index for your location or places like Yivo.

Also check Mariam Weiner's book Jewish Roots in Poland to see what is
known to exist for your town.

Re: First name: Berko #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

A reader responded about the personal name Berko:
"What about it being a Kinui for Berkovitz and the person being called
that as a first name knickname?"

Berko and Berek are diminutives for the name Ber. In Slavic languages,
the diminutive is often shown with a -k. Similarly Moshe is sometimes
called Moshek or Moshko.
-ovitz and similar endings are patronymic endings meaning, in this case,
that the person's father was Berek. Berek's son Abraham would be called
Abraham ben Berek-in Russian Abraham Berkowitz. So Berko did not come
from Berkowitz but vice versa. In this case, a patronymic can give you
another generation-the Father. Sometimes, however a patronymic is taken
as an inherited family name, so you have to be careful Ber is usually Dov
in Hebrew, so Berko was probably known in schul as Dov, the two names mean
the same thing. Of course, it is possible that Ber could be something
entirely different in Hebrew since it is not a requirement that the names
be used together.
All these name problems are very common. I think there are probably
more name questions like this than any other topic in Jewishgen after
"Can you tell me about my ___ ancestors!"
