Names

Most of us start our research with our family names.  The purpose of this page is to identify documents throughout this site that contain names so that you can find them from one page.  You will also be able to locate them in the other tabs, but this page attempts to bring them together.  Begin your search with the Names Index which looks at the different spellings of similar names across family histories, tombstones, photos, ads and the Jewish school. You can then go to those specific sources for more details. If a researcher provided information on their family names you will also find a link to that information.

Patronymics
Patronymics 1822-1823
This link will take you to copies of documents from 1822/23 when Jews were required to take surnames instead of patronymics.  It first lists the patronymic and then the surname.  There are actually two lists that overlap, but there are some slight differences between them. An excel file can be downloaded which attempts to reconcile the two lists and which lists out the names to the extent they can be determined. It also identifies those names that show up in later synagogue records.  Courtesy of Susan Weinberg

Property Owner Names
On the Archive tab you will find the digital access to the Radom Public Library.  One of the important sources there is  called Nowy Informator and lists property owners from 1902. You will find the addresses and names with many Jewish names among them.
Telephone Books
Another useful source is the Telefoniczna dla Generalnego Gubernatorstwa .  This is a telephone book from 1942 of the different areas in Poland that were under German control at the time.  It includes Krakow, Lublin, Radom and Warsaw.  You can find Radom beginning on page 55.   It is followed by the small towns that surrounded it.  Keep in mind that many people did not have telephones.
