Kulikow (Zolkiew Kreis, Galicia) 1854 Cadastral Map online! #poland

Pamela Weisberger
 

A most interesting 1854 map for Kulikow (Kulykiv, Kulikov) in the
"Zolkiewer Kreis" (Zolkiew Circle) had been uploaded to the Gesher
Galicia Cadastral Map Room:

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/kulikow-kulykiv-1854/

The map shows a well-developed town center with market square, a minor
square with a possible synagogue, three churches and two large
Catholic cemeteries, a Jewish cemetery, a large reservoir, and some
unusually long and narrow farm parcels. Buildings and land parcels are
each clearly numbered; redline revisions to building and parcel
outlines indicate changes in town after the 1854 survey.

If you have researched or visited this town and know, for certain, the
location of the former Jewish synagogue, please let me know privately
and we will add that information to the map description.

If you want to learn more about Galician districts, and the history of
how they evolved over time, check out the timeline created by Alex
Feller >from the Rohatyn Shtetl Research Group here:

Re: Reading the 1917 Berlin card #general

Jeffrey Knisbacher
 

Just a short note of thanks to the several people who took the time to
completely read the 1917 postcard that my grandfather had sent to his
brother (>from Berlin to Linz) and to correct a couple of errors that I
had made. They also pretty much confirmed the suspicion I had that he
had served in the German army (about which we had no idea previously),
and was in a military hospital either for injuries or for sickness. He
was only able to send a postcard without a postage stamp because of his
military service.

Jeff Knisbacher

MODERATOR: One meaningful way to thank JewishGen and the
JewishGen community - and insure its continuity - is to
make a donation to JewishGen-erosity. Donations can be
made in honor of a special person, in memory of someone,
to commemorate an event, or just because! No amount is
too small.

Moreinu Harav Rosenheim came to the United States in 1940. Because of
a family story, I need to find out where he taught that specific year
(1940-41) 5700-01.
Thanks so much,

Jordan Jews? #sephardic

Ellen Shindelman Kowitt
 

I am posting for a gentleman who walked into our synagogue in Boulder,
Colorado who seeks information about the origin of his father's family from
Jordan. His surname is Jewainat, and he was raised within the Greek Orthodox
Church in Jordan. He has heard stories in his family that his father's side
was Jewish and dates back to the 2nd Temple in Jerusalem.

As there is no Jordanian SIG, and I don't know how to guide him to research
Jordanian Archives or Church records in Jordan, is there anyone on this
Discussion List who has experience or suggestions for genealogical
resources. He is going to test his DNA.

Thank you.

Seeking Mendel POCK/POK #belarus

RICHARD FRIEDMAN
 

Hi Genners,
I am trying to find information on my great uncle Mendel POCK/POK. He
and all his siblings were  born in Globokie in Vilna Guberna circa 1880.
His father was Gabriel and his mother was Zelda Miska. He had at least
two bothers- My GF Israel Moishe born 1880, Lazer Baer born 1875 and a
sister Riva Leah born circa 1885. I have been able to trace what
happened to all of Mendel`s siblings. The only thing I have learned >from
a relative in Israel was that Mendel lived in Leningrad and perished
during WWll. I did see a Mendel Pok or some variation in a Yiskor book
for Globokie and do know that there were Pocks there but have no reason
to believe that the Mendel listed in the book is my great uncle.


Any and all help or ideas is most appreciated. As I write our family
story, I truly hope that Mendel`s life will be more than just two lines.


Thanks for your help.

Ed, many marriages were made with Jews in nearby towns...so i looked

I found this, perhaps its what you are searching for:
