Subject: Piatek, Poland, Vital Records Indexing Project Announced
Great news for fellow researchers of Piatek and vicinity!

Vital records for the town of Piatek (Piontek) have been discovered at
the Leczyca branch of the Plock regional archives. This find is a welcome
surprise, since it had been thought that records for this town did not
exist. Neither the LDS Family History Library nor Miriam Weiner's _Jewish
Roots in Poland_ list vital records for this town.

Piatek is in Lodz province in central Poland, latitude 52o 04', longitude
19o 29'. Neighboring towns include: Bielawy, a distance of 7.1 m >from
Piatek; Ozorkow, 11 m; Leczyca, 11.3 m; Kutno, 12.5 m; Glowno, 12.7 m;
Opole, 13.5 m; Dabie, 13.6 m; Zychlin, 13.9 m; Zgierz, 15.2 m; Lowicz,
19.4 m; Lodz, 21.9 m; and Brzeziny, 21. 9 m.

The Piatek records total 6,444 births, marriages, and deaths, and cover
the years >from 1826 to 1931. Most of the records >from 1842 on were indexed
by the original clerks. Thanks to Jewish Records Indexing - Poland through
its agreement with the Polish State Archives, the index pages have already
been photocopied and transcription has begun. The years without indexes
will be indexed by the Polish archivists. The resulting database will be
invaluable to researchers of Piatek,and also to those of surrounding
towns, many of which have few extant records.

This means that when indexes are completed for Piatek, this new material
will finally allow you to expand your research into a time period or
geographical area that has been elusive and beyond your reach. Once these
indexes are completed, you may simply print out an order form >from the
Jewish Records Indexing-Poland web site and order the records >from the
Polish State Archives.

I have agreed to take on the responsibility of Piatek Town Leader. Please
join me in making this extremely worthwhile and exciting project a
success. Your participation in this project can help bring to light
information you may have never imagined you would find.

Please spread the word to everyone you are in contact with who has an
interest in Piatek or this area -- family, friends, co-researchers. All
should be encouraged to participate.

Updates on the JRI-Poland /PSA/ Piatek project will be available in the
future at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/psastat.htm
click on "Status Report: PSA Projects Underway."

If you are not familiar with the JRI-Poland database, please go to the
JRI-Poland home page <http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL> to find out more.
By clicking on "Search the database," you can experiment and see how the
system works. By clicking on the hyperlink "Polish State Archives" on the
main table, you can find out more about the Polish State Archives projects.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Last call for authors of family books in print #general

Sallyann Sack <SallyannSack@...>
 

Dear Friends,

Every year, in the last issue of each year, _Avotaynu_ prints a list of
family books that have appeared in the past 12 months. Also eligible are
books that were published some years ago, but has never been listed.

As I get ready to close this issue, I want to be sure that I have not
overlooked any books that appeared this year. If you are a new author,
send us your name, title of the book, a short description of the book,
including major names researched, towns of residence, years covered.
Include ordering information and tell us where you have deposited the
book (libraries, institutions, etc.)

Even if you think you have sent me the information, it wouldn't hurt to
check and make sure that I have it.

Germany-UK 1910 - which route? #general

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

My father-in-law left Poland (Lublin area) abt. 1906 when he was 16 years
old, spent abt. 4 years in Germany (area unknown) working in the tobacco
industry and came to UK 1910. My husband remembers being told that he
came to UK on the day Edward VII was buried. Edward died May 6 and was
buried two weeks later.

What route would be the most likely for that journey? Which harbours had
routes to London? We have the impression, but don't know for sure, that
he landed in London.

Would any of the Europe-America boats take passengers bound for UK?

1944 he was sent to Lengenfeld a labor camp in Germany . We don't know what
happened there if he survived that camp or died there .
I saw evidence that tow Hungarian Jew gave testimony after the war their

31.5.36) they too wear in the Hungary army on the regiment 101/758 they

There were many cases in which a man who married into a well known
Rabbinical family took the father-in-law'sfamily name.

In our family one of my ggfathers went into his father-in-law's profession,
a shochet (ritual slaughterer) and >from then on the family's name became

need to alert the Jewish Press - Czech Claims dedline #general

David Lewin <davidlewin@...>
 

I have been deeply involved recently in tracing people whose roots are in
what is now the Czech Republic, and who may have grounds to reclaim
property which was taken away either by the Nazis - or later by the
Communists.

I feel it is important to alert the Jewish population to the 25 May 2001
deadline which has been sprung on putting in such claims in the Czech
Republic.

I feel the message must be publicised in the Jewish Press and Synagogues -
and any expatriot Czech Organisations.

Can you possibly help me to some addresses in your part of the world?
I will e-mail, fax, snail mail the message accordingly.

Please respond privately to: davidlewin@bigfoot.com

Thank you

Be well,

Re: Children Use Mother's Maiden Name #general

Paul Silverstone
 

In my grandfather's case the reason given was that his real name was
unpronounceable, and that when in 1889 the "immigration officer" asked him
to spell his name he could not and gave his wife's maiden name Silverstein
instead. His brothers, arriving later, also took that name.
His real name which appeared in three different Hebrew spellings was
Chrzan, which in Polish means 'horseradish.' I was told one of his
brothers who also had a wife with the surname Silverstein, changed it
because he didn't like the real name. Since so many people tell stories of
men using their wife's name, this casts doubt upon the reasons given by my
grandfather as told by the family.

Paul Silverstone asked if others had found examples of men or children
taking a mother's maiden name upon emigration to North America. I have a
similar situation in my family when my grandfather emigrated to Canada
from Ukraine in 1927. He changed his name so he would be accepted as an
immigrant.


DAVID & RAPAPORT #general

Roberta Solit <rsolit@...>
 

I know this is a long-shot, but perhaps someone in this group could provide
some help-

Raisa RAPAPORT, born between 1893-early 1900's near Nagy Szollus
(Vinogradov) married a man named DAVID (this might have been his surname).
They had two children, a son and a daughter. The daughter, Machlech
survived the Holocaust and was living in Bratislava after the war.
I'm looking for any information on Machlech and will take any suggestions
on how to persue this search.
