Frieda Libaw <fbl2@...>
 

Searching for ancestors of Yakov BORNSTEIN who was married to Rosa
LICHTENSTEIN and who lived in Wloslavick, Poland toward the end of the
19th and beginning of the 20th century. He was a schochet and mohel.
Any information on this family and on the following would be gratefully
received.

Am also searching for ancestors of Yoel-Wolf GOLDSTEIN and his wife,
Rifka LACHS (or LAX) who lived in Lipno, Poland, He was a member of a
Chassidic group and the owner of two enterprises; one that manufactured
cotton interlining for winter garments and the other that dealt with
crystal and porcelain ware. Rifka's father was Moishe Lachs, who died
ca. 1895 and her mother was Gitl who died ca. 1879. Both of these men
were highly respected members of the community and Moishe served as its
representative in dealing with the Czarist government.

I may be contacted at fbl2@... In lieu of direct information
any suggestions on how to conduct my search would be more then
welcome.Thanks in advance.

Half cousins, half aunts, etc. #general

Paul & Joan Blumstein <pbjb@...>
 

If your grandfather had two wives and you are the grandchild of one wife
and someone else is the grandchild of the other wife, are you two still
considered cousins or would half-cousins be a more appropriate term?

My father-in-law always referred to someone as his half-aunt. Now that my
wife
met her (half-)cousin (Thank you FTJP!) she has wondered whether that
person is a cousin or half-cousin.

I suspect that we call that person a cousin even though it is not as full a
connection as two people who shared both grandparents. A limitation of the
English language, perhaps?

Thoughts, anyone? (On this topic, silly:-)

To Winnie71 who had difficulty locating Dervil and anyone else interested
in how to locate "unknown shtetls"

Try using the JewishGen ShtetlSeeker accessed >from our homepage
http://www.jewishgen.org and listed under
Databases. Since the spelling is always suspect, I would suggest using the
Daitch-Mokotoff soundex instead of selecting the exact spelling. Good luck.

Archives of Liege #general

Norman Brotman <NORMAN-BROTMAN@...>
 

Some time ago, I wrote a letter to the archives of Belgium, asking whether
they had any record of a marriage that took place there about a century ago.
My letter gave the names of the bride and groom, and gave a more exact date.

Early December, they worte me a lettter in French, assuring me that they had
the information, and would be glad to send it if I sent them 15
international reply coupons, and made mention of the reference number in the
letter.

After I had the letter translated into English, and was assured that I had
it right, I went to the local Post Office and purchased the 15 international
reply coupons, at a cost of $1.05 each. I waited until after the Xmas rush,
because I didn't want to wait all day in the PO, and I didn't want the
letter to be treated like just another Xmas card.

I personally saw the postal clerk insert the coupons in the envelope, which
already had a xerox copy of their letter, and I personally saw the postal
clerk print the 60 cent stamp, affix it to the envelope, and seal the
envelope. The envelope was addressed with the return address on the letter
from the Archives of Belgium, and my letter never came back.
I must conclude my letter and coupons were delivered, and received. Mail
does not take more than six weeks to go >from the states to a civilized
country and back, so I am afraid that these people have ripped me off.
$15.75 plus postage will not change my life style, but has certainly left me
with a bitter taste in my mouth. Has anyone else dealt with the "Archives
de la ville de Liege" or with Christine Renardy - Van Roy, "Archiviste"?
