Searching: BORNSTEIN from Wlodslavick, Poland #general

Frieda Libaw <fbl2@...>
 

My grandparents lived in Wlodslavick, Poland. Three of their children
emigrated: Abram (my father) to Paris around 1904, followed by his
brother, Gedalie, and by a sister, Chana (married to Ariel LANDSMAN).
Another brother, Motcha (Max) emigrated to the U.S. about the same time,
had his name changed to BERNSTEIN and lived in Brooklyn, N.Y. Motcha was
married and arrived with his wife, Netcha, and two daughters, Emma and
Ruth. I don't know if there were any other children.
I have a good knowledge of the descendants of the children mentioned.
But I am having difficuly tracing my ancestry beyond my grandfather,
Yakov BORNSTEIN and his wife, Rosa Lichtenstein.
Anybody out there have any info or leads? Thanks -
Frieda Libaw

Re: Copple (kappel)=yarmulke #general

Judith is quite right. We always pronounce it as 'couple' but some say
'copple'.

However, most Jews in Britain also came >from Eastern Europe. Approx
figures. 1880
about 60,000 Jews in Britain, including Sephardim and Eastern Europeans. By
1914 about 300,000, the addition being due to East European immigration
plus natural increase.

Jgsny@...
 

Participants at the 19th Annual Conference on Jewish Genealogy, August 8-13,
1999 (at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in NYC) will have an outstanding array of
programs to choose from. Those who are deficient in Hebrew, Yiddish, Polish
or Russian will find help here. The program includes both Hebrew and Yiddish
ulpans (language classes) for genealogists given by Rose Lerer Cohen of
Israel. In addition, there will be a lecture given by Judith Frazin on
translating 19th century Polish language documents. Jonathan Shea of the
Polish Genealogical Society will teach us how to translate Russian language
documents >from Poland. And there is much, much more...

A copy of the Conference registration application can be copied directly from
the web site. The list of lectures (now over 100) is being updated weekly.
The conference will be held at the Mariott Marquis Hotel, located in the heart
of revitalized Times Square -- accessible to all archives, libraries and
resources for genealogical research. Provide the Conference information when
you make your reservations with the hotel and airlines in order to receive the
special rates for attendees.

See you this summer!

Searching: Sherwood SCHWARTZ #general

Len Pincus <lennyp@...>
 

I am now at the point where I have contacted all the Sherwood SCHWARTZ's
that I was able to find, alas with no luck connecting to my family. I was
told by the last contact that there is/was a dentist in the New York area
By the name of Sherwood SCHWARZ. Can anyone tell me how to find an address
for him since no internet source has him listed.

Re: Zawichost #general

Ada Holtzman asked about the location of Zawichost in Poland. It is
indeed near Sandomierz, as he had been told. The town is located about
15 km north-northwest of Sandomierz on route 777; the town is located on
the west bank of the Wisla (Vistula). Hope this helps.

Re: Beregszas (Hungary)? #general

diane goldman <dgoldman@...>
 

Ellie,
Sorry if I've misunderstood your note, but it looked like part of your
question was how to find Beregszas, Hungary. Have you tried looking in
Where Once We Walked (Mokotoff and Sack) or in the Family Finder? The
modern name is Beregovo, and the town is now in the TransCarpathian
Oblast of the (southwestern) Ukraine. Beregszasz (the former Hungarian
name) could refer to the town or to the area around it. Beregovo is
said to maintain the strongest Hungarian influence of any towns in the
surrounding region, and it is home to the oblast Historical Archives,
but getting information could be problematic (see MISHPACHA summer
1998--18(2), JGS of Greater Washington.)

. . . .After several years I still have not been able to verify the town
in Hungary that my DEUTSCH family came from. I believe it was
Beregszas.
