Re: Trip to Lithuania next spring #general

Chuck Weinstein <cweinstein@...>
 

JewishGen has a ShtetlSchleppers trip to Vilnius in June, and another
one in July. These trips are arranged to provide an overview of
Lithuania and time to travel to a number of shtetlach in the area.
Further details are available at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.isa?g2~Itinerary~itinUser~VilniusII>

If you can wait or reschedule your trip, this is an excellent
opportunity as all ShtetlSchleppers trips come with a strong emphasis in
the genealogical aspects of the area. All the hard work (guides,
hotels, dining, etc.) are already taken care of, as is a visit to the
Lithuanian Archives. Check it out.

Re: Death and Cemetery Brickwall in London? UK #general

Just about all the information you might need about Jewish Cemeteries in
the UK can be found at the site of the Jewish Genealogical Society of
Great Britain, at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/englandl.htm

I had a quick look at the list of cemeteries on this site and found only
one situated in Golders Green (West London Synagogue). However, there are
lots of helpful names and addresses of contacts for further information
and help.

Does anyone know how long I should expect to wait to receive an SS-5 form

already.

Thanks.

STRIZOW or SILVERFADDEN in New York #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

Chaje Malka Kostman (born Rozdol, 1875) married a man named
SILVERFAD(D)EN and lived in New York. They had a daughter
(maybe other children as well) named Sylvia who married a man
named STRIZOW (spelling may be inaccurate). Sylvia should be in
her eighties, but we are nearly sure she is still livng.

Unfortunately, I don't seem to be able to find anything on these names
in the US. (There are three Siberfadden researchers on JGFF, but
they haven't been of help.)

Anyone have a suggestion?

Searching: MORGENSTERN, MORGEN/MORGAN #general

Elsebeth Paikin
 

I send this request for help for relatives with no
access to the Internet:

Information about relatives of:

Hannah, aka: Chaja Etta, KATZ, nee MORGENSTERN,
born 1873 presumably in Augustow, Suwalki gub., Poland/Russia
died 1933 in Lund, Sweden
married (presumably in Augustow) to:

Hesekiel (Exekiel) KATZ
born 10 May 1873 (presumably in Augustow!?),
died 12. August 1928 in Lund, Sweden.

Between 1904 and 1909 Hannah and Exekiel emigrated >from Augustow
to Sweden together with two sons,
David-Rubin, (1898-1913) and
Icek Berko (Isak Berko) born 22. April 1902.
A daughter:
Jenny Flora, was born in January 1910 in Lund, Sweden,
died 1965 in Sweden.

The two grandsons living in Copenhagen would be very grateful for
any information about - or contact with - possible relatives.

They were told by Jenny Flora that some of Hannah MORGENSTERN's
brothers emigrated sometime between 1904-1909 to the US (Chicago!?)
- they were said to be carpenters.

The name is said to have been changed to MORGEN/MORGAN in the US!

We will be thankful for any and all information about MORGENSTERN
relatives and/or their descendants

Best regards to all >from the two grandsons:

Torbjorn and Eskil Adelson, aged 69 and 66.

Information can be sent to:

Missing Town and Country #general

MSpearssol@...
 

Think I just found my Great Grandfather's birthplace, but after an
exhaustive search of Shtetlseeker and the rest of the JewishGen web site,
I have not been able to locate it.

Name: Bernhard WEINSTOCK
Birth Date: 22 Aug 1852
Birth Place: Doerzbach
District: Kuenzelsau

Anyone know where this was, particularly the country of this time period?
My grandmother always claimed she was born in Austria, her date of birth
was 1886.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Female name Dobrisch #general

mario_m@...
 

Shalom

We have always thought that Dobrisch was a masculine name from
Dov. But now we found a female who's name is Dobrisch. The only
name we can think of as it's origin, is Devora. (This woman is
from the Ukrain.) Can anyone confirm or refute this?
Thank you for your help

Ostpreussen means East Prussia, which is adjacent to where you are
placing your family. Given the mobility of that border, your family is
just where you thought.

More Piatek Surnames On Line #general

Sheila Salo <ssalo@...>
 

More names have been added to the Piatek Surname List! The added names are
extracted >from the indices for 1842 through 1867. JRI - Poland Surname
Lists are compilations of family names appearing one or more times in the
vital records of the town. Transliterations of all variations in the
spellings, as they were written by the town registrar in the civil
records, have been included in each surname list. As additional indexes
are added for a town (other years or types of records), surnames not
previously in the list will be added.

This feature of JRI - Poland is provided as an aid to researchers who may
not recall initially nor search for all the names in their various family
branches, but whose memories may be sparked by scanning the list.

Already I see names on the list common to families in Zychlin, Kutno,
Bielawy, Brzeziny, and other towns in the Piatek vicinity. Be sure to
check for your surnames. You may have had ancestors in Piatek and not yet
know it!

To access the surname list, go to the JRI - Poland web site at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL>, click on "Polish State Archives," then
on "Status Reports: PSA Projects Underway," scroll down to Leczyca Branch,
and click on the town name, "Piatek."

Indexing of the 2002 births, marriages and deaths recorded 1842 through
1867 is now completed. The Piatek database now indexes 4355 births,
marriages, and deaths for the years 1842 through 1899. Records for which
index pages were not created by the original clerks will be the next group
to be indexed.

Stay tuned to learn when this database will be added to the JRI - Poland
database.
