First name Leicie #general

D. Abrams <dabrams1@...>
 

Hi-
Has anyone come across or know anything about this name? I just discovered
a relative named Leicie LEVENKROHN on a ship's manifest. I have never
heard of this name and could find no mention of it on the Discussion Group
Archives or on several other databases. Her family came >from the Zolkiew
area in Galicia, if that helps at all.

Is it a form or Leie?

Dear Fellow JewishGenners,

I, too, am translating part of a yiskor book and need help with a few
Yiddish words, abbreviations, titles.

1. alef, yud, nun, zayin, shin
If used as a title before a person's name, this could equate to "Ing."
meaning "Engineer."

Folks, this message is just to call your attention to the fact
that the "court of last resort" is to place your message in this
mailing list. Not that you're not welcome....you are <grin>, but
first things first, please

Because we can only post one digest a day and it has been
getting bigger and bigger and b i g g e r ...we would like
to bring your attention to a specific section in the information
about the JewishGen Discussion Group...accessed >from our
homepage http://www.jewishgen.org Go there, and just click on
the Discussion Group and you'll next see a Table of Contents.
I'd like you to pay particular attention to

V. How to Get the Most Out of Using JewishGen

Frankly, this Discussion Group is only one small part of our
organization, and many of the other places which might well hold
the answers to your questions are to be found in Section V

If you do nothing else today, please take a few minutes to visit
that section and explore the sites listed. Not only will you be
doing us a favor by finding answers instead of posting the
questions that most beginners ask, you'll be doing yourself a
favor in opening the doors to many more avenues of research.

As a matter of fact, it might be a good idea for you to start at
the top of the homepage and click on every single link so that
you will know what JewishGen is all about. When you get to the
searchable databases, type in every surname of interest to you,
you might be amazed at what turns up! I found one of my primary
surnames in the Phoenix Project, enabling me to document that
there were indeed family connections in Brest Litovsk in the
1940's....something no-one alive today could have known about.

Try it out...who knows what rewards await you.

Happy hunting, and thanks for helping us to improve this forum

Data Base #lithuania

Irwin S. <irwins@...>
 

To Whom It May Concern,

The Jewish Community Center of Wilkes Barre, Pa. is going to try to
computerize the records of the local Jewish funeral director. His
records go back at least 60 years. They would like to copy all of the
information on his index cards that would include parent's names and
other family names.

Can anybody suggest a computer program that might work for this very
important project? For example, would "Ultimate Family Tree" work?

Please post any response on my private email and I will refer these
responses to the JCC.

Thanks in advance for any input that anybody can provide.

GREENSPAN, FOX & COHN of Plock, Raciaz, Poland, NY and TX #general

COHNSIMCHA@...
 

I am attempting to locate decendants of my grandfather Sam COHN who was from
Raciaz, Poland and immigrated to Texas in 1921. I have located some old
letters and located new cousins in Israel which has produced the following new
information:

My grandfather Sam COHN had either a sister or first cousin named Rose FOX. I
have many letters >from her dated around 1939. She was married to David FOX and
they lived on Cruger Ave. in the Bronx. I located a wedding invitation for
their son David FOX who was married to Marlene BRIKLOD on Thursday November
23, 1950 at the Temple Adath Israel in Bronx, NY. In addition, the family
owned a produce business in the Washington Market. David and Rose FOX might
have been Sophie KUGLER.

In addition, I am searching for the Shlomo GREENSPAN/GRINSPAN family of
Brooklyn. Shlomo was the author of Zdin in Plotzk/Jews is Plotsk 1960. His
son's name is Isadore GREENSPAN and his daughter is Nayma.

Also searching Hershel GREENSPAN family of Argentina. Hershel had a daughter
who might live in Paris and a son Gerard GREENSPAN who most likely lives in
Argentina.

Jack GREENSPAN was >from Raciaz, Poland and his mother was my grandfather's
sister. According to the Raciaz Yizkhor book, Jack's mother and father should
be Label and Hinda GREENSPAN. Jack lived at my grandparent's Rose and Sam
COHN's house in Taft,TX after returning >from the war to the USA. Jack
GREENSPAN married Lillian and had a daughter Sipora after moving to Los
Angeles, CA. Jack GREENSPAN may have owned a chain of beverage stores.

In addition, I have very recently sent correspondence to the two following
persons by regular mail:

David AIZENBERG of Paris and Stella TJAJKOWSKI of Stockholm.
