Radziejow, Poland #poland


Ellen Gottfried
 

My grandfather, Abe SOLOMON emigrated in 1913 and went to stay in the
Bronx, New York with his cousins Wolf and Samuel LAZARUS. My
grandfather, as well as Wolf and Samuel, were born in Radziejow,
Poland. The problem I have is that I have a death index and a
marriage record index for Radziejow, and have checked JRI, and there
is no one with the last name LAZARUS listed in the town, or nearby
towns. Does anyone have suggestions for how I can find Polish records
for Wolf and Samuel?

Do you know if they shortened it to Lazarus? The husband of my 3X great aunt originally spelled it “Lazarovitch” before changing it to Lazarus. Coincidentally also named Woolf, but he was from Lodz and immigrated to England.


PS - I also have family from Radziejow

Ellen,
I have several ancestors from Radziejow, but do not know how to research them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. My fathers grandfather, my GGG, (Maier Löwin Ordewer 1853-?, was supposedly one of twelve boys, eleven of whom became Rabbis. I am unable to find any trace of the eleven. Can you suggest a search path for me to use? I do not believe any of them emigrated to the U.S. I am a first generation American, having arrived as an infant on Ellis Island 9/1/1938 on the last safe crossing of the S.S. Saint Louis, prior to the 'Voyage of the Damned."

In addition I am searching for:
Löwin, Lowin, Lewin, Loewin, Ordewer, Wegener, Malz, Solomon, Kornberg.
