searching FLEISCHMAN #galicia

Edward Andelman <andelman@...>
 

I am searching info re FLEISCHMAN(N) >from Tarnapol, Lemberg-L'vov,
Galicia, Austria, pre WW I, now called Ternopil, Ukraine. My maternal
gg/parents were Henia ? (c1820-1901) and Rubin FLEISCHMAN, parents of
Chana (1851-1939). Chana said she was related to the FLEISCHMANNS of
the Cincinnati yeast company. She may have had 2 brothers but I haven't
been able to find any documentation.

If anyone is researching this surname too or has any info re to share, I
would appreciate hearing >from them.

Thank you.

Rozdol birth records #galicia

IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

In the course of our PICKHOLZ research, we have about forty pages
of Rozdol birth records, each containing one PICKHOLZ birth.

I'd like to make the rest available, via the Rozdol ShtetLinks pages
that I'm preparing - problem is that I can't really read them well
enough to do that.

Until that problem is solved, I can probably read some of it well
enough to identify a name that I'm specifically looking for. So if
this partial lookup ability helps anyone, ask away. we are talking
about pre-1870.

Hello Jane,

My grandfather arrived in NY in 1905 >from Antwerp, Belgium on one of the
following ships, the Vaderland, the Kroonland, the Zeeland and the Finland
which seem to correspond to those ships you listed. Also the Morton-Allan
Directory can be found online at the following URL.

Searching Dan Gostynski, near Zawichost #general

ada01@...
 

Shalom,

I wish to thank all who responded to my inquiry, regarding the
disappearance of Dan GOSTYNSKI >from Lodz, a baby of 2 years old,
delivered to a Polish farmer in 1942, at a village near Zawichost.

As a result of this query, I was contacted by Ted Gostin who has been
researching the GOSTYNSKI family for many years, to my great amazement
and future mutual cooperation.

In addition, I would specially like to thank David Gordon, who has
helped me in the past in other matters. He, not only directed me to
Zawichost, but also located with very high probability the village
Czyzow which is where "Dan was given to a Polish farmer who lived in
the first village on the right hand when you go >from Zawichost to
Ostrowiec Swietokrzyski in a distance of 2-3 miles >from Zawichost."

This might means a break through in the search which Leon GOSTYNSKI
has made for tens of years after his lost nephew, whom he never
stopped believing to be alive in Poland, under false identity.

Toda raba,

Where are the vital records? #galicia

The2thdkdr@...
 

I recently began researching my maternal, grandfather's family. My
grandfather's name was Aron Gelb. He emigrated to the U.S. in 1911. He said
he came >from a town called Mikolayev (his spelling on the ship's manifest).

I believe Mikolayev, which is now in the Ukraine and spelled Mikolayuv,
is located at coordinates 4946-2420, according to the Jewishgen Shtetlseeker.
This places it about 15 miles east of Lviv. It is near Glinyany.

Would anyone know if vital records exist for this shtetl? Would they be
in Lviv?

Someone once mentioned to me that vital records for Jewish villages were also
kept in a nearby town called Bobrka, which I believe is now called Chodorow.

I would appreciate any help.

Wayne Roth, Brooklyn New York The2thdkdr@...

MODERATOR NOTE: Refer to Suzan Wynne's book, Finding Your Jewish
Roots in Galicia: A Resource Guide, published by Avotaynu, Inc. It
appears that there are vital records for this town with the Vinniki,
Eastern Galicia (Ukraine) records in the Polish National Archives in
Warsaw and in the Lviv Archives.

This book is highly recommended for Galician researchers, especially
those who wish to know the availability of vital records.

Searching KOHN, Vienna #general

Brichg@...
 

I am looking for a Nora Kohn, originally >from Vienna, Austria. She left
Vienna at the same time as a Lisl Kaufmann, 1938. Nora ended up in London,
Lisl in Israel. They both survived the holocaust & had children. Nora would
be around 75 yrs. both these women's names are their maiden names. Nora
visited Lisl in Israel in 1950. Nora had a brother named Fritz. They went
first to Prague in 1938, before going to England.
These women are childhood friends & Lisl would desperately like to find
Nora.
I hope this sounds familiar to someone out there. This generation of
holocaust survivors is rapidly fading, with the advent of the computer,
maybe we can help them come full circle in their lives. In turn enriching
ours & our children.
If there is a familiar cord here, I do have more details.
Thank you all,
Betsy Gilon
