5/20/2009 I know that the Krieger family lived in Oswiecim and in the towns of Osiek and Kety near Oswiecim. However, this birth certificate appears to show the parents of the mother, Chana Krieger, as having resided in "Halen" (underlined by me in red). I can't find this place in any map or gazetteer. Since this area was part of Austria at the time, I suspect that it was the Austrian name for a place, probably nearby, that later took on a Polish name. Can anyone shed some light on what town this is? View the post with its 2 responses

5/20/2009 Documentation of the marriage of Szlama Gersz Wolman and Frajda Kampel. The documentation references AKT 33. I find that the source of records online Archive 25 Fond 216 for marriages 1891 to 1896 is listed as "complete". This marriage took place 1892. How can I find the actual complete record? Is it somewhere on line? If on microfiche by the Mormon Family Library, how do I find the microfische reel number? View the post with its 1 response

5/17/2009 We are hoping to find any information relating to Mordecai and Gittel Margolin (surname changed to Margolese in the nineteen-teens). we are particularly interested in Mr Margolin's professional activities, though any other information would be welcome. Mordecai Margolin emigrated to Montreal from Russia in 1903/1904. He was born April 18, 1863, in Rogachev. This newsclipping is from an unknown publication. The photograph was taken in Montreal (date unknown). Thank you in advance for any assistance. View the post with its 5 responses
