Shalom KORB from GOMBIN!


 

 

Dear Abbee,

 

It is page 56 and not 52 (the numbers of the pages were marked by the Poles - the book itself is without pages numbers).

In house number 4445, registered in book Volume VI, page 258 in that book, lived soemtimes in the mid 90s of the 19th century, family KORB, as I described to you before. Mother Ruchla and father Abram, born 1856, with three children: Tauba, 1882, Laja 1883, and Gersz Lajb 1884.

 

I finished just going all over letter "K" (just selecting the Jewish names for the transliteration from Russian) and the family name KORB doesn't appear again. This tells us also something - they must have left Gombin! Most of the other families, who stayed behind, there were new registrations, additions, even in Polish (after liberation 1918), to the original book which was in Russian.

Also note that in all the database I received from JRI, (data which is already posted in the WEB) Russian years 1876-1885 there are no vital records of the name KORB - while most of other Gombiners are recorded very well and are there in Plock Polish Regional Archive! Among others:

ZAJUNC
ZURKOWSKI
to mention just few of many, which I recognize at a glance. But since our shtetl CO-OP Plock covers nearly all the 19th century, and only very few years are indexed, there might be a good chance that other discoveries will come up in due time, also for the family KORB, from Gombin (Gabin)!

Yes, there must be additional information about family KORB, with much richer genealogical data. It was hinted by the fact that there are registrations of "VOLUMES" and "PAGES" - referring to bigger books, usually in the Municipality or in the Land and Property Registration Offices.

And everybody thought that all was destroyed and lost - BUT IT IS NOT TRUE! The books are most probably in the PLOCK regional archive!!! 700 pages of indexes were xeroxed by a volunteer and are on their way to me, as I volunteered to be Plock coordinator in JRI Shtetl CO-OP of JEISHGEN.

I haven't realized at the time when I did so, that ALL genealogy of GOMBIN is right there, in that archive! I need more volunteers to help in the transliterations - please help in this if you can. See my original message :"Shalom Plock" at:

All is really fascinating, and I am glad your family research benefited in a way, from the transliteration and "cleaning the dust" from the over 100 years old registry Book of Gombin...

Shalom, 

Ada
