An uncle of mine was born in Mlawa, on or about September 1, 1884. His Hebrew name was Shmuel Aaron Ben Zvi Chaim. He emigrated to London, England where his name was variously spelled Kazanosky,Kazanofsky or Kazanowsky. Do you have any record of persons with similar family names?

Norman Ravvin - 27 December 1999
Email: ravvinbutler@sprint.ca
Surnames: Eisenstein, Margulies, Krystal
The Inquiry:
Mlawa was my grandmother's second home, near to Radzanow where she was born. Here married name was Eisenstein, and the family names connected with her were Margulies and Krystal. The Krystal family, I believe, had a flour mill near the town, and Margulies a store. Both families had connections with Radzanow, which gradually decreased as family members moved to Mlawa or abroad. In the years before the war my grandmother lived with her half sister and her husband, bringing her two children to Mlawa, before she immigrated to Canada. I would be glad of any information that correspondents might have connected with her family.

Ada,

Yoy! Can my "Yiddisheh Kup" be slow to illuminate sometimes...
With all the responses coming from other searchers of Mlawa, how about
inviting more of them to also sponsor a linked page to MRI about their families?!
That would greatly increase the panorama of life that has come from there
and give more voices to the flame of rememberance.

What do you think?

Surnames:
 
 

The Inquiry

I was interested in reading about Mlawa project. I visited there about 2 years ago to see what records were available for my ancestors.

The Ciechanow archives are kept there but the old man in charge refused to cooperate until we bribed him with a bottle of Vodka and a carton of cigarettes. The Mayor, on the other hand,, was very receptive and seemed to have a genuine interest in the the planning of the monument which you described.

I have in my possession two Polish books which may be of interest to those with ancestors from the region. Both have information about Mlawa.

"Zydzi w Rejencji Ciechanowskiej, 1939-1942" has numerous index references to Mlawa. It also has a separate personal name index.

"Dzieje Spolecznosci Zydowskiej powiatow Pultusk i Makow Mazowiecki" has no index but I noticed a few mentions of Mlawa in the text.

I do not understand Polish but both books have very brief English summaries at the end so I know the outlines of their contents.

I will be glad to lend these books to anyone in Israel who wishes to photocopy them and translate them into English for the benefit of all genealogists with an interest in those areas. I am leaving from New York to visit Israel (staying in Rishon, for the most part) in 3 days (May 14) and will gladly bring the books with me to loan until May 31. I will not mail or send the books but will deliver and receive them personally.

Should anyone be in position to offer to do the translations, please notify me before Wednesday evening, May 13th, New York time. I'll then take the 2 books to Israel. Otherwise I'll keep my luggage a bit lighter.

Good Luck on the Project.

The Message:

Ada,

I forgot about your asking for my own genealogy information. It will be my proud pleasure to share it with you. Just keep in mind however that I have just been collecting additional records (thanks greatly to the work of JRI-PL) from LDS microfilm that hasn't been translated yet. That is to point out that what I can send you now is not all inclusive of what information I have gathered. I will send you update as I can.

In the mean time I am sending to you some information of what Polish Census record translations I do have and a bit more too. A cousin is working on scanning some of the antique family photos and if you like I will share those with you as well. I do have a picture file to send to you now that was sent to me by relatives in Mexico of the first cousin of my great grandfather and also of his daughter with her husband from back in Mlawa. For explanation, the elder man's name is Szaya Tachna and the couple in the other picture is his daughter Chayaleh with her husband Nachman Aks. Szaya Tachna perished in the Holocaust and his daughter Chayaleh with her husband Nachman immigrated to Mexico before the war.

In the snail mail I will send you a printed outline of the family tree.

TACHREC.DOC contains translations of Polish Census Records.
PASSINFO.DOC contains information from United States Customs passenger manifest lists of persons arriving at the port of New York, Ellis Island.
YADVSHM.DOC list information found from the Hall Of Names at Yad Vashem.
MIS_ANCESTROSBN is the two photographs.

Ada,

I have a video tape of Mlawa that was taken a year ago on my behalf by a researcher in Poland. It is 1 hour in length. I think that I should send it to you. Give me a little time on doing it because I will first have to take the tape to the video store for them to copy because it will need to be done in the correct format for VCR's used in Israel.

This is the last weekend that I have before going back to work. Yes, I would have traveled - Eretz Yisroael always a top idea on my mind, but my sister just gave birth to a little girl June 28th. Do you want to hear a story about "Beshert"? There was a little argument between my mother and my sister over the naming of the baby. My sister and her husband named the baby for his grandmother "Faige Ruchle". My mother wanted the baby named for her own mother "Channah Ruchle". Well of course the parents are the boss and the child is named Faige Ruchle (in English her name is Madeline Faye). Well I realized something! The name "Faige Ruchle" was also the name of the wife of my grandfather's youngest brother Dovid Tachna. Both Dovid Tachna and his wife Faige Ruchle perished in the Holocaust at the hands of the cursed Nazis. I am in possession of an old photograph of Dovid & Faige Ruchle together in Warsaw that is dated 1939. She was a beautiful woman!
They had no children from what is known. Dovid Tachna was hanged by theNazis in Mlawa as part of a mass execution of about 60 Jews. I found the name of his beloved wife Feige Ruchle in the Hall of Names at Yad Vashem. The entry was given by her sister and it states that Feige Ruchle died in the Warsaw Ghetto. Now there is a Jewish child of a new generation to carry on her name!

Shalom,

Robert

Dear Mr. Flinker:

I obtained your name via jewishgen.org. My father Moshe David Frenkiel z"l came from Mlawa.
Unfortunately, like so many survivors from the Shoah (he was deported to Auschwitz) he refused to talk about the past.
I would be very grateful if you could point me in the right direction,
as far as getting me in touch with others from Mlawa who may have have known my father. BTW, I will be in Israel in October.

Thanking you in advance,

I came across this chart and found this address. My mother was born in Mlawa, Poland in 1908. She is no longer alive and did not tell me too much about her live in Poland. I am very interested in finding more about my ancesters.

My mother's name was Chaja Ita Antkowicz. She had 3 brothers and 2 sisters. Her parents names were Sheieh Antkowicz and Perel Goldstein. I would like to know how I could go about to find out if any of them are alive or not and when they died if at all possible.

I live in Canada. I was born in Amsterdam, Holland and am one of the Hidden Children. I am trying to retrace my roots as there is no one alive as far as I know from either my father's or my mother's side.
Please let me know if you could help me.

Thank you,
