Searching SZYDLOWSKI from Warszawa #general

EZRA <ezra@...>
 

Shalom,

I'm searching the SZYDLOWSKI family that lived in Warszawa till 1939 and
vanished in W.W.II.
My grandmother was Sara SZYDLOWSKI who married Joseph LIGER. Sara had
two brothers that I know of.
1) Moszek SZYDLOWSKI that was married to Rivka. They were orthodox and had
lots of kids(?).Moshe SZYDLOWSKI was a baker
2) Simcha SZYDLOWSKI who immigrated to the U.S. (could be between the
years 1911-1939) . We don't know when he came , where he settled and what
are his wife and children's names. He was also a baker. My father remembers
they got a telegraph to Warszawa informing them that Simcha SZDLOWSKI died
(Before W.W.II)
Simcha SZYDLOWSKI probably has descendants somewhere in the U.S.
I hope somebody there recognize the story.

Krubelnik from Kelem #lithuania

Lawrence R. Hamilton <lhamilton@...>
 

While browsing the JewishGen Discussion Group Archives, I
found a September 1995 posting >from a Lauren Levin that is of enormous
interest to me. It reads as follows:

"We have a family tree which has been documented. The
original name is Krubelnik, >from Kelem in Lithuania. I am interested
in hearing >from any family members. The tree starts with Reuben and
Frieda in the early 1800s. It was compiled by Elaine Kanter (USA).
One branch landed up in South Africa. My parents and I were born
there and now live in Australia. I'd also be interested in hearing
from anyone >from Kelem, a small town near Vilna. Email address is
laurenl@melbpc.org.au."

My g-g-gmother was a Krubelnik >from Kelme, quite possibly the
daughter of the couple mentioned in the above posting since the name
Reuben was repeated in my branch of the family. But alas, the 1995
email address for Lauren Levin is (not surprisingly) no longer valid.
What can I do to find Lauren -- or the compiler of the family tree she
refers to (Elaine Kanter)? Has anyone on this list had contact with
either of them? If so, please e-mail me privately at
Lhamilton@mayerbrown.com.

Having traveled in Belarus four years ago, I would suggest EXTREME caution.
I
was in Brest, Pruzhany and Malcz.
I do not wish to belabor the point, and you certainly have to exercise caution
in traveling anywhere in the world these days, but, in some parts of the world
a lot of changes have occurred in the past four years. For one thing, border
crossings may still present problems in some areas but it is a lot easier than
it was four years ago. I could state that I was in Lithuania four years ago
and no McDonald restaurants existed there and, that would be a true statement.
However, at the present time, that statement would not be factual. Vilnius now
has two McDonald restaurants!!

The point I am making is this. Let's all of us try and give information about
things and places as they exist today for the benefit of those planning to go
there. Ancient history is just that, ancient history. If I am going to an
area, I want to know what it is like now, not what it was like four or five
years ago. In June, 1997 one couple in my group trip to Lithuania made a side
trip to
Pruzhany, Belarus. It was a five hour drive >from Vilnius to Pruzhany. They had
no problems of any kind, including crossing the border into and out of
Belarus.

If anyone is planning to go to Belarus, plan well, obtain the latest travel
information possible, use a professional driver and guide/interpreter, and
exercise caution. Leave your expensive jewelry home!!

We should not forget the venerable Boston department store. According to one
story, the founder's name was originally KATZ. "Translating" this name into
French, he came up with a new version, "FELINE", with an acute accent over the
first E. (Michael Bernet and some others will see the fallacy here.)
Finally, this became, on his arrival in Boston, FILENE, by which name the
store is still known.

It was with great disappointment that I learned that in fact, Mr. Filene's
name almost certainly came >from the town of Filehne, and was never Katz. And
it made such a good story....

Re: On giving out information #general

Mark and Debbie Burr <ember@...>
 

I have been working on genealogy for about 20 years, mostly my husbands
line until recently. I have found that it is best to share only a bare
bones family tree with total strangers, because as Harold Pollins says
you do not know what they are going to do with it. Send your direct line
only to the requester.(You, your father or mother depending on which
line the person is researching, their parents etc.) Give only general
info, not total dates . That should be enough for the requester to see
if you are actually related. If it turns out that there is a connection,
you may, after numerous contacts want to share more. Or not!! Do not
feel obligated to give all you have. But do not close the door on what
could be the person with the info you have been searching for. Hope this
helps. Deborah Kopstein Burr
