Hi,

One of my branches came >from Stakliskes in Lithuania.

I was recently in correspondence with a descendant >from that town
and we tried to match wives of his ancestors for whom he does not
have a surname.

Unfortunately we were not able to make any matches.

However, it occurred to me that other researchers >from Stakliskes
who have wives without a surname, would like to contact me and maybe
we can discover a connection with my REICHZELIGMAN women.

Regards,

Dear Genners,
=20
I believe I had tried to ask for this information before, but I guess
it won't hurt to try again.
I am searching for any information about a family named FRIEDMANN who
was based in modern Hlohovec in Slovakia, a town that back then was
called Galgocz in Hungarian and Freistadt in German.
The family members I know of lived in the mid 19th century or the
second half of it. It was a religious family, and a few members were
supposedly Rabbis (although I don't know what position they held). Of
those I know the names R' Mordechai FRIEDMANN, R' Moshe FRIEDMANN, and
a R' Aharon FRIEDMANN (although his connection to the family is not
quite clear). Mordechai was the father of Moshe, so it seems.
One of the problems I stumbled upon while trying to search information
about this family, apart >from the quite common family name, is the
fact that I have some documents which contain only the Hebrew names,
on others only the secular names. The matching is not always clear,
and for those for which I don't have the secular names, it might be
harder to locate official records.
Anyway, I am sorry for the long scroll, but I would love to get any
piece of information, if any of you have ever heard about a FRIEDMANN
from Hlohovec. Other guidance would be appreciated as well.
Thank you very much

Did help-wanted queries go from US to Europe (1880s)? #general

How can I locate information about which communities in the US were seeking shochets
in the mid-1880s? My g'grandfather went directly >from arrival at the port of
Philadelphia to Indianapolis; I would like to find out why. No luck with family
members, Philadelphia or Indianapolis archives. Any suggestions would be
appreciated.

How can I locate information about which communities in the US were seeking shochets
in the mid-1880s? My g'grandfather went directly >from arrival at the port of
Philadelphia to Indianapolis; I would like to find out why. No luck with family
members, Philadelphia or Indianapolis archives. Any suggestions would be
appreciated.

My suggestion is that you use http://www.hometownlocator.com/ putting in
Mount Kivak New York into the city state search. It will come up with
unknown and a suggestion to search a list of populated places. The closest
one would be Mount Kisco in Westchester county. Alternatively you can click
on New York first and then search for populated places starting with M (or
P). Peekskill is a town in Westchester county, so I would think that
someone misread the handwriting for Mount Kisco.
