Info on a relative executed by the Gestapo #general

Johnny Maduzia <j_maduzia@...>
 

Jewishgen,
I'm searching for information on a relative of mine, Joseph Maduzia. He
was visiting a neighbor of his that was hiding a Jewish family >from the
Germans. While there the German Gestapo appeared and finding Jewish people
hidden there, executed my relative, his neighbor and his family and the
Jewish family and burned their farm to the ground. This occurred around
the village of Jaworze Dolne Poland in 1943 I think.

Is there anyway that I can get information on this incident? I would
appreciate any info, thanks.

Regards,
Johnny Maduzia

Hi,

I appreciate all of the responses that I have gotten and if I haven't

However, I have yet to receive an answer to my question that if I get
the burial plot information, would anyone be able to take a photo?
Yes, I have the death certificate information and his date of death.

Thanks again!

Evolution of a Surname: BIALOGURSKI to LEVINSKY #general

Ricki Zunk
 

Many years ago, when I was beginning my family research, someone sent me
an email explaining how the people in the BIALOGURSKI branch of our
family (>from Sejny, Suwalki, Lithuania) came to North America and once
here (on on their way here) changed their surname >from BIALOGURSKI to
LEVINSKY or LEVINE or LAVINE. I got that info about 20 years ago. Now,
I cannot find the letter or email anywhere, and sadly my memory is not as
good as it used to be.

Does anyone have a logical explanation for this particular evolution? I
know that names can be changed for all sorts of reasons (or non-reasons),
but the fact that someone actually *knew* the answer all those years ago
makes me all the more anxious to find that info once again.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. You may respond to his
question privately OR, if you think it might help others, kindly post it
to the group.

First Came "Retroactive Samification" and Now Comes... #general

Meron Lavie
 

A while back, I wrote a positing here about the insidious, pernicious
phenomenon of "Retroactive Samification" - meaning that some ancestor who
never stepped foot out of his native shtetl had his name listed as "Sam"
by his immigrant descendants on documents in the US (name of deceased's
father on a death certificate, etc.). Sadly, I must admit that even my own
great-great-grandfather was the unwitting victim of retroactive
Samification on multiple occasions.

Well, I knew that I had a great grandfather whose name was Schleime Meyer
KOLMAN >from the Ukraine, who arrived in New York in the early 20th century.
In the US, he was known as "Sam". I could never find his Ellis Island
records, which surprised me as I could find all his relatives who came in
that same time frame. Of course, I was looking only for Schleime Meyer
KOLMAN.

One day, while amusing myself during a particularly vapid meeting at work
by trolling one of the genealogy sites, I ran into Ellis Island records
for a Samuel KOLMAN. All the details seemed to fit my great-grandfather,
except for the fact that the first name was not Schleime Meyer, but rather
Samuel. After all, he would only have changed his name to Sam/Samuel in
the States.

And then it dawned on me.

I may have just discovered...
...
... Proactive Samification!

By that, I mean that perhaps my great-grandfather already took the name
Samuel in advance of his arrival in the US, maybe because he came through
Scotland and it was just easier giving "Samuel" to the Scottish clerk who
registered him? Can you even imagine hearing "Schleime Meyer" in a heavy
brogue?

I would be interested in hearing if there are any similar stories of
people who experienced Proactive Samification, and perhaps even start a
support group for their families.

Re: Searching for documents - Patent Applications #general

Meron Lavie
 

As some of you may recall, I was whining in this forum several months
ago regarding the dearth of vital records available on line for
Buchach (nee Buczacz).

Well, while looking up some of the members of my family >from Buczacz in
Google hoping to luck out, I ran across a patent granted to one of those
cousins of mine. The patent contained important information for me, which
enabled me to complete some missing parts of my family puzzle (and trust
me, my family is quite puzzling...).

The patent in question is for the modern department store clothes hanger
(you know, the ones with all the nooks and crannies for hanging clothes by
their straps, etc.).

Now, my mother has never been that interested in genealogy. But when she
heard that one of her relatives had invented something related to clothes
shopping, she started to seriously consider changing her religion >from
Judaism to Ancestor Worship...

... The point is, discovering that a relative or ancestor applied for a patent

might be articles in newspapers, special interest or technical publications.

Patents, copyrights and/or their proceeds can also be passed along in the
holder's will. The names of beneficiaries - whether individuals, charities
or commercial enterprises - might open more avenues.

wanted its value to accrue to someone...

Need help finding passenger manifest #general

Pat Shaw <pshaw@...>
 

My ggf, William FRIEDMAN, arrived in New York City in 1902. According to
his naturalization petition he sailed on the SS Dresden >from Bremen Feb
1902. I can find no listing for him on this ship, or indeed anywhere in 1902.

I believe that he sailed Cabin Class - would these people have had to go
through Ellis Island? Is that why I can't find him. Have been searching
for quite a few years - on Steve Morse's website, Ellis Island website,
Ancestry's website. Also I believe that my ggm, Sarah, and 9 or 10
children sailed with her separately. Can't find them either. Can anybody
help, please. Where do I go >from here?

FAMILY TREE PROGRAMS #belarus

mkaplan27
 

I have been using Family Tree Maker for eight or nine years (version 11,
copy write 2003). There are several things that it does not do, things that
I would like to do. Perhaps newer version do some of these things. I AM
LOOKING FOR ADVISE ON UPGRADING MY PROGRAM.

1. I would like to be able to include a reference citation for data that I
enter
2. I would like to be able to print trees (descendant or ancestor) and
EXCLUDE SELECTED INDIVIDUALS.
3. (This is the tricky part). Let's look at a descendant tree of A. In the
third generation, say, there is an individual, B. I WOULD LIKE TO DISPLAY
THE ANCESTOR TREE OF B along with the descendant tree of A.
Another manifestation of this kind of tree development is this: I have a
descendant tree say, for me and my wife. I can make that into an "hourglass
tree" for me OR for my wife. But what I want to do is to display the
descendants for me and for my wife AND THE ANCESTOR TREES for BOTH of us.


Any suggestions?

Louis KRAMER and Hyman COHAN - still at a dead end after 35 years of searching #general

Ricki Zunk
 

to JEWISHGEN
BOTH of my maternal great grandfathers have remained an enigma to me for
the 35 years I've been researching my family genealogy. Unfortunately,
as you can see, they both have very common names. I do have a few "solid
facts" about each one of them, but I've be stonewalled for more than 20
years now. I'm hoping that some new/fresh eyes might come up with some
possible answers or solutions that I might be able to follow.

LOUIS KRAMER:
According to the naturalization certificate (which had some
additional information handwritten on it by the court clerk in 1891, Louis
KRAMER arrived in the USA on October 28, 1885 (I have no idea at what port
or in what ship), probably with his older brother Benjamin KRAMER. He was
born about September 1867.

He renounced his loyalty to "the Emperor of Germany" when he took his oath
on Sept. 26, 1891, at the Court of Common Pleas, Lancaster County, PA.
Louis had married Sarah KURSON earlier that year (May 2, 1891) in
Philadelphia, PA, so she became a citizen too. Mr. Nathan Furman vouched
for Louis at that time.

In Lancaster County, PA, Louis was a "peddler" and we know >from old family
stories that Louis and Sarah lived in Mt. Joy, PA, during the 1890s, where
they had three children (Eva, Shimon/Sam, and Ben).

They left Lancaster County, and moved to Philadelphia, PA by the 1900 U.S.
Census. In Philly he was a confectioner and he also dealt in real estate
(until the 1929 Market Crash).

HYMAN COHAN:
My mgm never knew her father, as he died in January 10, 1897 (approx.
39 yrs. of age), in Philadelphia, PA, >from complications of "weak lungs."
My mgm was only 9 months old at that time. His Hebrew name was,
Yechezekiel Ha' Kohan, but in Philadelphia he was Hyman COHAN (on my mgm's
marriage license she said his name was "Haskell").

Hyman had an older brother who also lived in Philly. His name was Solomon
KOPLIN. According to the tombstones of both Hyman and Solomon, their
father was "Reb Yisroel Ha' Cohan). It is possible that these men were
from a long line of cantors, but we have no valid proof of that.
Hyman was married to Ida (Chaya Reisel) when they arrived in Philadelphia.
We believe, but have no proof, that they arrived in Philly in 1893 with
their oldest child, Louis Israel (Israel Leib Ha' Kohan) who was about 1
year old at the time. They settled in South Philly, near 5th and Kater
Sts.

Hyman and Ida never became U.S. citizens. He died too soon, and she was
an illiterate woman trying to raise three children (Louis, George, and
Anna) on her own. She took in washing, and also worked in the kitchen of
Uhr's Kosher Caterers in South Philly.

Folks, I've given you all of the known facts that I've been able to gather
on these men when they first came to America. Over the years I've spent
untold hours looking in archival records and online records, and grilling
family members. Virtually all of the family members who were their peers
or who were alive when they were have passed on. There is no one else I
can ask about them. My mother, who is now 87 years old, and whose memory
of her childhood is very good, has told me everything she can remember.

I have no photographs of either of these men, and no documents other than
what I've mentioned. Over the years I've been pretty successful in finding
my father's paternal family line (RENDELSTEIN/RANDALL/RENDELL), and my
half of my mother's family lines. But, when it comes to Louis and Hyman
all I can do his keep hitting the dead ends and brick walls.

When both of my mother's family lines came to the USA, they were all
settled in and around Philadelphia County, PA. I've been in the NARA and
the Philly City Archives. I've gotten info >from funeral homes and
cemeteries. 35 years ago, I questioned all the family elders I could find
back then.

Now, I'm stumped. Anyone have any ideas where I might still look?
Please advise privately.

Thank you,
