In your example of your grandfather you've raised a question that has
been in my mind for some time now.
It involves the use of the terms, "parish" "powiat" and "gubernia" How
do these terms compare to the birth information below.
My grandfather was born in USA, Illinois, Cook County, Chicago and I
even know the street address.
His father's birth information from the SGGEE databases
Surname Given Name Birth Day and Month Birth Year Event
Lachmann Samuel 23 Sep 1865
Father Mother Film or Item Page
Number Register Remarks
Gottfried Wolf, Julianna 1884089/1 666
From what I can gather from all sources that I've found so far Samuel
Lachmann was born in Roschischtsche, Volhynia (Helenow, Wolynskie,
As near as I can figure it comparing my great grandfather to my
grandfather it would be as follows:
Poland, Volhynia (Wolynskie), Helenow, Roschischtsche(Rozysche
The remark Bereske also puzzles me. Is it a place name? Which name
would be the powiat. I haven't seen that term before. Volhynia is the
gubernia and Roschischtsche the parish I think :-\ .
