Can anyone tell me what an Auslaufer was? This was the occupation listed on a
Frankfurt death certificate late 1800's.

Thanks

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.

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:

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,

Searching ABRAHAMSON #general

Jill Anderson <jill.anderson@...>
 

I am researching into the ABRAHAMSON family who emigrated to London, UK
in January 1907 >from Rakyshka, Kovno (Kaunas) Lithuania. The parents
were Jacob and Annie and the three sons, Marks,(born in 1880), Morris
and Joseph (who later went to the US). If anyone has information about
them, I would be very grateful.

HYPP38A@prodigy.com (Mary ann Weiner) asked:-

The above village was reported on the ship's manifest of an immigrating
ancestor. It is difficult to read but appears to be Rososche,Russia.
He is believed to have come >from 'somewhere' near Kiev. Does anyone
recognize this place?
Mary Ann,

This is surely Rozyszcze (Polish spelling) , also written
Rozhishche (standard transliteration), a large town about 400km
West >from Kiev. (At 50 55 N, 22 16 E).

Is your list >from before World War I? Before WWI it was in
the Russian province Volhynia, between the wars it was in Poland,
and is now in Ukraine.

You will never see it spelled the same way twice.

reliability of information on documents #general

Joyce Peck <Joycekp@...>
 

I'd like to add my personal experience with the reliability of names and
dates on documents. I just received my parents'
Social Security application forms. My dad's had still another birth date
on it. (Back then people had babies on the fifth candle of Hanukkah or a
week before Passover, so who knew??).He himself probably was never sure
exactly when he was born in Dubno and since my mother was embarrassed at
being a few years older then he dad often changed the year of his birth
to accomodate her. Hense I have documents with birth years for him
ranging >from 1903 to 1908. He used March 26 as his birthday. I'm pretty
certain he was born sometime in March but I recently found he arrived in
this country on March 26, 1913, and suspect that's how he got the
"exact" date of his birth. When he died, I had to pick a date for his
tombstone and the obituary notice. I'm only marginally sure I am right
about the one I chose. In addition both he and my mother (and my
mother-in-law also) variously used two different given names in addition
to their Hebrew names. Jews at the first part of this century tried to
"Americanize" their names, especially when they went out to work. Hope
this isn't too long, but judging >from my own family, I think accuracy
was not a high priority for many of our forebears and therein rests the
reliability of census info and other documents information.
