I have found the staff at the Genealogical Department at the Newberry
Library in Chicago very helpful when it comes to Chicago genealogical
matters. They have a correspondence service for genealogists. Their web

Good results from Warsaw Archives #general

JLowenkron@...
 

Dear Genners,

I want to share my good luck with all of you and encourage you to also
to try contacting the Archives in Warsaw...earlier this year, Miriam
Weiner brought the Archivist >from Warsaw as part of a joint lecture..
they encouraged us to write to the Warsaw Archives even if our families
didnt come >from that exact area...it entailed lots of writing back &
forth, depositing a check in an account designated for that purpose and
telling them all I knew of my grandfather's life in Derewnia, which is
about 36 km NNE of Lviv...months passed, I emailed my tale of woe to
anyone who would listen, pretty much gave up, then lo and behold, a
registered letter containing the most wonderfully full information and
leads to more...it's a copy of a registration book still in existence...
it contained my grandfather's date of birth & circumcision, his name, sex,
legitimacy status, name & occupation of his father, mother's name,name
of her parents and their shtetl, his father's father, his wife & her
occupation, the name of the midwife, and was signed by several witnesses,
including my greatgrandfather in Yiddish & German....the copy of the
document cost $40...I had sent $75 and they asked if I want it returned,
but I will ask them now to look into the deeper past....there was a posting
today saying that the Germans destroyed or stole records >from a slightly
earlier time, but I m willing to take the gamble...Ms. Violetta Urbaniak is
the Archivist in charge, you can write to her in English but be prepared to
have a friend or neighbor translate her response back to English..the
address is Archiwum Glowne Akt Dawnych, UL> Dluga 7, 00-263 Warsaw,
Poland.....Happy hunting....remember it takes months, so dont get
discouraged....Jane Lowenkron Foss, New York.

Re: Back in Rome #hungary

The next Slovak archive that the Mormon's are going to film is
Bratislava. There is no guarantee that the records will be filmed. Most
of the vital records for small towns in other districts did not get
filmed. So, you might consider asking the Slovak archives to do research
for you.

Emigrate to Israel on 1809 and died here.
Leib Hassid was the grandfather of Moshe Yehoshua Yehuda
Leib Diskin (known as The Rabbi >from Brisk).

2. Avraham Diskin (was known later as Avraham Shatz).
Was born on 1782 in Brestwitz. Father name was Yaacov (Diskin).
Study in Yanov in Hazanim school and emigrate to Israel on 1853
with his two sons (Moshe Yehoshua and Simcha Shlomo - their

I tried to enter this town in the JewishGen data base, but it was

Poland, perhaps near Czernowitz.) Thank you.

Searching LISKOWSKY, WOLINSKY #general

liss@...
 

It's been a long time since I posted a query about
LISKOWSKY and WOLINSKY.

Shachna LISKOWSKY (1856-1937) was born in Bereza (Belarus)
and moved to Antopol to marry Chaya WOLINSKY (1856-1943).

Shachna's parents were Mordecai (1831-1901) and Sarah (1830-1910).
His brothers were: Reuben (1858-1936) who emigrated to Argentina
and Joseph (1860-1940) who died in Warsaw.

Chaya's parents were Velvel and Esther. Chaya's siblings were:
Moshe Yitzak, Naphtalie, Tsiril, Lebke, Shaya.

Velvel's father was Aaron David ben Moshe.
Velvel had 6 brothers including Sander (1855-1943).

Aaron David's brother was Baruch Wolinsky (1809-1917) who had
3 wives and 22 children.

I have been working with Jewishgen members Robert Wolin and
Jay Ivler on linking our WOLINSKY families together and this
represents our latest research.

We have found the following variations of Wolinsky: Wolin,
Wolins, Wolinetz, Woliyniec.
