Ellis Island #general

Dr. Josef Ash <j_ash@...>
 

Couple a days ago I saw (for the first time, sorry!) the first part of the
"Godfather".
There is some half a minute scene of that boy-godfather's arrival to US
through Ellis Island, naturally.
NOW I understand what is the reason, source and origine of all these
questions of the american Jewishgenners about the names changing and wrong
written place of origine and so on.
One can never know where he can learn!!!

I don't think I was the person who posted the message to which Marilyn
responded, but I do have a FARKAS relative >from Hungary. My great-uncle
David BERKOVICS fm Ujvaros, Hungary, (now Orasu Nou, Rom.) married Sarah
FARKOSCH. They emigrated to the US sometime after 1912 and moved to Detroit.
Their son Jacob BERKOWITZ, who was born in Hungary in 1912, worked for the
Ford Motor Co. at River Rogue. He died in 1981 in Livonia, MI. I would
appreciate hearing >from anyone with info on this family.

I have been trying to find anything that can help me with my research on the
ARNOW family. Nathan fought in the Civil War. I have a copy of a letter he
wrote, applying for a pension increase. It is written on stationery >from the
above assn. Their headquarters were in Borough Hall....I believe in Brooklyn.
The date of this letter is 1912. If anybody knows this organization or has
any questions...please contact me personally. The only help I can give you is
the long list of officers on the side of the stationery. Unfortunately, most
names do not sound Jewish. Nathan Arnow is listed as the Treasurer...his
address i962 DeKalb Ave.. His son Arthur is first V.P. Does anyone know
DeKalb? Nathan's wife was Lenore Schneller and their children were Arthur,
b.1885 and Jessie b.1883. Jessie married Henry Gruenfeld. That is all I
know.....does anything ring a bell with anyone? Thanks in advance for any help
I can get. Rosann Epner

"Jciek"= Yitzhak #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

would the name "Jciek" in Abram Jciek be the equivalent of
Itzhak?
>
Jose Gutstein
JMG-Miami@msn.com
Yes, this does look like an attempt to transliterate Yitzhak!

In Hebrew, Yitzhak begins with a "Y" sound (often "lost" in the Yiddish
pronunciation Itzik, same as happens with the word Yiddish, which in
Yiddish itself is often pronounced "Iddish"). And of course the letter J
has a "Y" sound in Polish as in German, Latin, and many other languages.

Cemetery - Lodz #general

Debbie Raff <seraff@...>
 

In an earlier post someone asked if it was possible to search for
family buried in Lodz, Poland without actually being there.

One response was to contact a Mr. Symcha Keller. That person included
an address. I have just been informed by a source that the address
on Zachodnia Street is not accurate. The updated information sent to
me appears below.
Debbie Raff

The Jewish Comm. moved to its pre-war residence.

New address:
ul. Pomorska 18
Lodz (I don't know the postal code)

Another possibility is to write to the Society of Former Residents
of Lodz in Israel, or better: to do both, because the information
may differ (due to balagan, chaos).
Address:
Eliezer Zyskind

Technical Tarnow Record Question #general

eric adler <ea73@...>
 

There is an odd annotation on a number of birth records (at least in the
1840s) >from Tarnow. In one of the far right columns (usually either the
mother's name or godparent's name), there are annotations such as "m.
27/9906" (sometimes the "m" word is scribbled out, but I can't identify
the language or letters--it appears to be two separate words) They
appear to have been annotated well after the initial records of birth.

I am guessing that it is a record either of emigration or death. I
believe they represent dates (the example above would be 27 September
1906).

Does anyone know anything more about this?

My friend Fay Kushner has asked me to make this posting. She is looking
for her long lost relatives named Bernstein-possibly in the San FRancisco
and LA areas.There is a connection to the GRANT family.They may have some
familiarity with the name YULOVITCH.Although the people she seeks are
Americans the family originated in "Picali", probably Picolya or similarly
named town or village in Lithwania,Latvia or N.E. Poland.[She says she is
a Litvok] The people she seeks may possibly have heard of some relatives
with a connection to Scottland. Please contact me so that I can pass the
information to my senior citizen friend. Thank you,
