My father lives now in Jerusalem, he was a prisoner of the Japanese at Los
Banos and Santa Thomas for a few years (civilian detainee, Polish citizen,
with USA visa to join his parents living there). Anyone on the list
related to other detainees/prisoners there?

You are right.

Only Radgoszcz is correctly spell as Radogoszcz (missing 'o').
Radogoszcz is located 8 miles NEEast >from Da,browa Tarnowska. (Da,browa
Tarnowska is 10 miles N >from Tarnow, the famous Palace of Count
Lubomirskis is also there).

With Biskupice is a small question mark. There are three (3) Biskupice
in Tarnow region.
Biskupice # 1, tiny village are right where River Dunajec empties to the
River Wisla, 10 miles NW >from Da,browa Tarnowska.
Biskupice # 2 are known as Biskupice Radl/owskie, about same size as
Radogoszcz are adjacent to shtetl Zabno, 5 miles SW >from Da,browa
Tarnowska.
Biskupice #3 are known as Biskupice Melsztynskie, asmall vilage near
Zakliczyn near River Dunajec, 13 miles SW >from Tarnow.

Personally, I think that Biskupice #2 (Biskupice Radlowskie) is a shtetl
you are looking for. Reasons: closest to Radogoszcz, about the same size
township in camparison to the other Biskupice hamlets. Most important,
is that there was a proper road between the shtetls, having Dabrowa
Tarnowska in the middle, where you ancestors probably met in a market
days and got married. Otherwise, to reach other Biskupice, they would
have to shlep through the marshes and rivers.

Close proximity of the Lubomirskis Palace in Dabrowa indicates that your
ancestors were most probably suplying services to this powerfull
landowner. Lubomirskis were the most influential Polish noblemen in
Poland's history.

Hope this help.

Russian Army #general

Anita Citron <anitac1@...>
 

I just received a document now being translated that is a letter >from my
ggf to the authorities asking for his veteran's rights. What a lovely thing
to see his name written in his hand in Hebrew.

Question:

The first child of my ggf was born in 1850.
My ggf was in the Russian army.
You served the Russian army 25 years.
They allowed Jews in the army >from 1827.
This means he would have gotten out in 1852 if he went in with the first
inductees.

Could he have gotten married while in the army? Were they allowed home
leave time?

more on personal names as possible clues to birth dates #general

Jonina Duker <jonina.duker@...>
 

It occurred to me that it might be worth pooling the combined
knowledge of "newbies" and "oldbies" to see
if the following practise was common enough to add it to the general
"tool kit". In my family research there are many examples, in addition
to the one I cited yesterday, where personal names were selected for
(usually middle- and later-born) children in big families based on Jewish
holidays and the calendar. If the practise was widespread, it will not
get anyone back another generation or more (the way both Ash.
memorializing the dead and Seph. honoring the living do) but it might, on
occasion, help narrow the search for the time of year of a birth record.
So is anyone else is interested and willing to do a bit of investigating
please read on.
I have come across personal names being selected both because of a
holiday and because of the parsha (Torah portion of the week). The birth
wasn't on the Shabbos itself, it was just within the week that portion
was read. It also seems possible in theory that names might have been
selected because of a Haftorah (rest of Bible readings done after the
Torah portion of the week).. Maybe for Chassidic families, names could
have been selected based on the birth or yahrzeit of the founding rebbe
or rebbe's family. Sorry that I don't know enough to do dates for the
various Chassidic dynasties. So, enough explanation, here is the
proposal. If people already know that personal names were on occasion
selected based on the calendar, please post examples. If people have
found personal names >from the following list or similar that seem to
appear >from nowhere, or have no other explanation >from the usual set of
explanations, please check the secular date with the Hebrew and see if
there are matches. (I am not on the web but know there is a JewishGen
calendar function ... for those who don't have easy access I will provide
Hebrew dates to use -- unless the moderator deletes them.)
Note that I may not get the possible names quite right but that doesn't
mean the methodology is flawed. Anyone who has better suggestions for
the names for the holidays or other events in the calendar that might
influence selection of names for an observant family please post.
Holidays: Rosh Hashonah is 1 (and sometimes 2 Tishri), names might be
Isaac, Hannah, maybe even Adam or Eve?; 3 Tishri, Gedaliah; Yom Kippur
is 10 Tishri, Jonah; Succos 15-21 Tishri, the names might be the
historical figures invited for ushpizin (think this depends on one's
background just who gets invited); Simchas Torah 23 Tishri, Simcha; the
Shabbos in Cheshvan for parsha Noah, Noah if Noah was used in the
family's tradition; the Shabbos in Cheshvan for parsha Chayei Sarah,
Sarah; Chanukah is 25 Kislev to 2 Tevet, Mattiyahu; Tu B'Shevat is 15
Shevat, any names connected with trees; the Shabbos for Shabbos Shira,
Shira; the Shabbos in Shevat for parsha Yitro, Zipporah, Gershom,
Eliezer; 7 Adar, Moshe (by tradition both birth and death); Purim plus is
13-15 Adar, Esther, Hadassah, Mordechai; Pesach is 15-22 Nissan, Miriam,
Moshe, Aaron, Yocheved, etc.; counting of the Omer through 5 Sivan,
Sephardic name Omero (do know someone with this example); Lag B'Omer is
18 Iyar, Akiva or Shimon; Shavuos is 6 Sivan, Ruth, Naomi, David; Tisha
B'Av is 9 AV but naming a child probably not appropriate for this date.
Several portions mention Joshua, they are read in the summer. If anyone
has names >from either prophets or writings they're trying to figure out
why the family used the name, and don't have when the haftorah portions
are read, please write to me privately and I'll supply that.
For names >from the Pentateuch check which portions they appear in and the
dates and see if that explains the name selection.

Definition of Pale of Settlement #general

Joel Ives <jives@...>
 

In response to Stewart Levy's question about the "Pale of Settlement" it
is fairly easy to find a definition that the "Pale" was an area of about
386,000 square miles to which most of Russia's Jews were confined in
Polish Territories annexed by Russia during the various partitions of
Poland.

The hard to find derivation of the word "Pale" is in a book by Joan
Comay, "The Diaspora Story" and is as follows: "Pale" is the accepted
English equivalent for the Russian term "Cheta." It is an old English
word for an enclosed area...

I don't own the book (yet) so can't check for you if there's more
information about her father but the wonderful recent book "Lost Love" ...
(sorry full title and author escape me) is worth consulting if you
haven't already. As a testament to human resilience and for fascinating
information about Louis Ginzberg's Legend of the Jews and Henrietta
Szold's massive contribution to it the book is also worth reading.
