Dear Schelly,

Saw your posting to Myra Davis and your mention of a Wisconsin Peckarsky.
A Milwaukee Peckarksy is an old and dear friend of mine with whom I'm still in
contact. If this can be of any help, let me know.

I am told that there is a Kozlov Society in Israel and in
US. My grandmother was born (Frima Bean) and married there
(Avrom Kaminker) in the 1890's. I am trying to locate members
of the society in Israel and/or US. Please advise any
information that is available.

A boxer named RANZER #general

WayneK251 <waynek251@...>
 

A distant cousin told me that a great uncle, Julius RANZER,
boxed all over North America as Willie Glavin. Is there
anyplace that might have boxing records? I am not very
familiar with major sports and sports records yet alone
boxing. This would have been during 1904-1925. Any
help would be appreciated.

Re: Midwife and Butcher #general

It's interesting to learn that Yiddish has only _one_ word for each of
these. Rather unusual for a language which has many dialects and used to
have many more.

the meat is the KATSAV in Hebrew.
Where does Avarteki, for midwife, come from? And Fleishhacker?!
"Fleischhacker" comes >from my mother's family. My grandmother, who prided
herself on speaking the best form of Yiddish, might have been rather
annoyed with you.

Something to keep in mind: 1) There were a lot of Yiddish dialects; even
in Eastern Europe, they were extremely diverse.

2) At least some of the people who have compiled Yiddish dictionaries were
more interested in the vocabulary of "correct" Yiddish than in the
vocabulary of people who spoke "incorrect" forms of Yiddish.

STAWISKI, Poland #poland

Is anyone aware of any LDS films for Stawiski, Poland (in
Lomza, gubernia)?

I didn't find that town listed at all among the many towns
in the LDS list at the JRI-Poland site.

Thanks,

Searching LIWERANT #general

rita <rivke@...>
 

Dear All

I agree with Ben Elton et al. about finding important connections
through this group so much so that only 7 or so days after posting a
search for SZCZECINIARZ and STOLIK which have both yielded important
avenues to follow up I am now posting another.

There is one large gap in my family research - that of my maternal
grandmother. Unfortunately the book of indexes for her birth year are
missing so I don't know who her parents were etc.

This is the information I have:

CHAJA RUCHLA LIWERANT was born 1891 probably in Lublin or surrounding
area. She married CHAIM DAVID STOLIK September 21 1917. They had 2
daughters, my mother Szajndla in 1917 and Rebeka (Rivke) born 1920.
Chaim David died in 1922. Chaja and Rivke probably died in Belzec in
1942.

That is the only information I have.

I am also curious about the name LIWERANT, not having heard of it
before. Does it have a meaning, does it signify as coming >from a
particular area?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Hungarian Passports, Once again. #hungary

Dennis Baer <dbaer@...>
 

Hello

I just spoke to a clerk at the Rotterdam Archives recently and he told me
that Hungarians or anyone for that matter needed either traveling papers or
a passport to go through Rotterdam on their way to New York. I got a
pasenger list >from the Netherlands that factually coincides with the one for
my great aunt Helen that I got >from NARA. These make up 2 different types of
passenger lists.

So I ask the question again, where do applications for passports or travel
papers reside and did copies of the travel papers or passports get made and
where do they reside for those people leaving Hungary in 1904 and 1907 in
general and Munkacs in particular?

I now have good reason to ask this question since the clerk told me that the
Dutch required papers or a passport.

Thank you.

Question about licensing for kretchmas #hungary

MGS18@...
 

Recent discussions of "holds" of land, methods of making fruit liquor and
anecdotes of kretchmas brings to mind some questions. What were the
licensing requirements for whiskey or liquor sellers? Would there have
been copies of licenses issued to Jews who were in this business and can
we access these records if they exist?

new website #general

Dmitry Meshkov <dmitrym@...>
 

May I encourage you to visit the new SADR (the State Archives
of the Dniepropetrovsk Region) SITE prepared by Dmitry Meshkov
and designed by Volodya Rubtsov

http://www.sadr.com.ua

There is extensive information about the *original archival*
documents on the history of Jews of the region can be now seen.

Please, mail your comments to: dmitrym@dsi.unity.net

Sincerely, Dmitry Meshkov, SADR archivist


MODERATOR NOTE: We accepted Dmitry's invitation and visited
what looks like a very interesting site. However in an
attempt to inquire about further information we dutifully
clicked on MAILBOX and the mail bounced as "user unknown".
Undaunted, we emailed Dmitry and our server came back with
"configuration error" Caveat emptor!
