Cosmos restaurant #general

Diana da Costa
 

The Cosmo restaurant was not the only restaurant run by, and popular with,
German-Jewish refugees. Diagonally opposite was the Dorice. If you put in
either restaurant into the search engine of the AJR Newsletter
(http://www.ajr.org.uk/pdfjournals) you will get many hits as both
restaurants frequently advertised in the Newsletter. Equally, a "google"
search will also achieve many further links.

Another haunt was Schmidt's in Charlotte Street, a stone's throw >from the
Bloomsbury part of London, a German restaurant with a shop downstairs
selling German fare. I don't think it was Jewish owned but also had a
popular following >from the German-Jewish community as well as the nearby
general student community as it offered cheap and plentiful food in its
upstairs restaurant.

Alas, all three restaurants are no more but for those of us still around,
these restaurants invoke many childhood and young adult memories of Weiner
schnitzel, sauerbraten, Hungarian goulash, Koenigsberger klopse, apple
strudel.

Re: IOS' Why is there a possesive symbol after the IOS #ukraine

Alan Shuchat
 

The apostrophe indicates a letter in the Cyrillic alphabet called a "soft sign", or 'myakhki znak' in Russian. The name Ios' ends in this letter. The Russian-language webpage http://imja.name/arkhivonomastiki/vajsenberg1913.shtml has excerpts >from a 1913 article on Jewish first names in the southern part of the Russian Empire, especially Elisavetgrad (later Kirovograd and now Kropyvnytskiyi). Both Ios' and Iosif are listed there, but Iosif is much more common. However, I've been translating revision lists >from other parts of Ukraine and I've often seen Ios'.

In doing some given name research I learned that the name Yosef can also
be Iosif or Ios'. Is the apostrophe a way of indicating certain letters
are missing? Why would a compiler of lists of residents of a town use Ios"
instead of Yosef or Iosif. Thank you.

Need Someone to Translate Old Polish Records #galicia

Jacob Heisler
 

Hi everyone,

For the last few days, I've been on a bit of a genealogy binge and I
now have a lot of records for my family. The bad news is they're all
in Polish, and there are way too many of them to just put them all
on ViewMate. So I figured I'd ask everyone here if anyone is willing
to spend their time helping me translate the records.

I should stress the records in question vary wildly in terms of
picture quality, handwriting, and whether or not it's on a pre-made
form or a straight paragraph of text. So please email me only if
you're that confident with your Polish.

If anyone is interested, the towns and surnames in question are:

Krakow; MANNE, ABRAHAM, ZAUN, WACHSBERG by direct
ancestry. LANGER, LUKS/LUCHS, METZGER by marriage.

Chorostkow: KELLMAN, SCHORR.

Skoryki: MARDER, KELLMAN, HIRSCHHORN by direct ancestry.
BILLER, REICH, TEILEBAUM by marriage. Please note that while
most of the records in question concern people >from Skoryki (a
small shtetl in the very eastern part of Galicia, a few miles >from
Podwoloczyska), the records all come >from Zbaraz.

Thank you for your time. Please email me privately.

JewishGen Success! Stories - January edition #latinamerica

Phyllis Kramer
 

We bring you three success stories that are sure to inspire. These
accounts bring us to Australia, South Africa, Israel, Poland, Germany,
Scotland, Belarus, Czech Republic, Austria, France, and more. You can
access these stories >from the "About Us" button on our website or by
following this link: http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Testimonials/

Eli Rabinowitz was named after his great-uncle who had tragically died
in an accident when he was a young man. That was all Eli knew, until a
connection made through JewishGen's Family Finder and an old 1920
school photo >from Poland given to him by his aunt prompted his journey
to solve the mystery of Moshe Rabinowitz.

Martin Tompa and Siva German connected via JewishGen's AustriaCzech
SIG mailing list when they discovered they were both researching the
Schueck family. By working together, they uncovered their common
great-great-grandparents and found the birth records of their
great-grandparents.

from our Archives, we bring you, again, a very moving story by Michael
Tobias, with Meredith Hoffman, about the reunion of cousins Moniek
Garber of Glasgow, Scotland, and Moshe Porat-Perelman of Kfar Saba,
Israel, who had last seen one another in the early spring of 1940.
They were joyously reunited, thanks to JewishGen, sixty-seven years
later, in 2007.

This issue was prepared by JewishGen volunteers -- Nancy Siegel, Editor
and our new Success! Stories Webmaster, Colin Mathias Justin. We hope
that you, too, will have success in your research using the abundant
resources of JewishGen and we encourage you to submit your own success
stories to us at: success@lyris.jewishgen.org

Polish Jews in Simferopol in WWII? #poland #lodz

Miriam Bulwar David-Hay
 

One of the big mysteries I have been trying to resolve since I began
researching my family almost a decade ago is where exactly in all the
vast Soviet Union my late father and grandparents were during World
War II, and where and when exactly my grandfather was killed. My
father was only three years old when the Germans invaded his native
Poland, and he and his parents fled into "Russia." When Russia went to
war against Germany in mid-1941, my grandfather volunteered to fight
with the Red Army, and was apparently killed almost immediately. My
grandmother also died young (after the war) and my father simply never
knew where exactly he had been in Russia or when or where his father
was killed.

A couple of years ago I received a document >from Poland which told me
that early in 1940 the family was in a town called Kizel, in the Ural
Mountains. Now, thanks to the wonderful people at the U.S. Holocaust
Museum, I have received a document that for the first time tells me
more: This document, >from a health organization in Poland that took
care of survivors just after the war, says they were first in the
Urals (it doesn't specify Kizel, just the Urals), then in Simferopol,
Ukraine, and then (my grandmother and father only) in Urgencz
(Urgench), Uzbekistan. It also says that my grandfather's last place
of residence was Simferopol, which suggests he enlisted >from there. It
does not say anything about where or when he was killed.

So now I am desperate to discover more. Does anyone know anything
about, or can anyone suggest sources of information about Polish Jews
in Kizel, Simferopol or Urgench during World War II? These three
places are vast distances >from one another -- how or why would the
family have gone or been sent >from one to the other? Are there any
lists of the movements of Polish Jews across the Soviet Union during
the war? And if my grandfather joined the Red Army >from Simferopol, is
there a list of any soldiers/volunteers of any kind >from that area?
Where would he have been deployed >from there, and in what capacity? As
a Polish Jewish refugee who volunteered, would he have served with
Russian soldiers, or in a separate unit? And, most importantly, where
and when exactly was he killed? Is there somewhere I could write to
obtain information?

Please note that I have searched the Russian Defense Ministry's OBD
Memorial for every possible variation of my grandfather's name, and
I've found nothing. I've also searched other sources (listed in detail
below). Any information or suggestions to help me find soemthing would
be most gratefully received!

Thanking you most kindly in advance,
Miriam BULWAR David-Hay,
Raanana, Israel.

P.S. My grandfather's name was Abram Itzhak BULWAR, born 1900, Lodz,
son of Szmul Aron and Estera (nee ROZENBERG), killed mid- to late
1941, somewhere in Russia. My grandmother was Miriam (nee FRENKIEL)
and my father was Tolek (Teofil) BULWAR.

May I ask two questions:

(1) I see names of witnesses to marriage ceremonies included in indexed
entries of Nowy Wisnicz, Tarnow, Bochnia, etc records among the Galician
records I am searching >from the 1880-1915 time period. Would someone
know how old someone had to be so that they could be a witness at such
Galician marriages in that time period? (I see several people with
similar first names; knowing if they were old enough to serve as
witnesses could rule out some of these people who would be too young,
according to their birth entries, to also be witnesses.)

(2) I sometimes see the phrase "Isep" included in an indexed entry.
What does that term mean? It is not footnoted anywhere, it seems.

Thanks for your help!
