Landmanshaften Information

by Deb Raff

YIVO in N.Y. has a landsmanshaft file for a Duklar Society. If anyone lives in the N.Y. area, you may want to explore this file, I am unable to since I live in California. (Records from the Duklar Relief Society from 1944 through 1968 are in record group 799). The original two page document was obtained from YIVO in New York. It is typewritten, and appears to be a non-dated membership list, which includes names and addresses in Israel. There is no page heading and the clarity of the printed word is difficult to determine, therefore, some names may not be totally accurate. The names have been placed in alphabetical name by surname, but did not appear this way in the original document.

James was my wonderful dad. He moved from Poland to New York at the tender age of 6. He served in the U.S. Army in WWII, was an active member of the Jewish War Veterans and a volunteer coordinator for his local police department, until his recent death. He practiced his Yiddish by translating some stories from the Sanok Yizkor Book for JewishGen. My uncles and my father worked in the jewelry business, which seems to go back at least 3 generations in my family. James, Miriam and their 2 daughters, Deborah "Debbie" (that's me) and Nedda moved to California in 1959.

The Records of the nearby town of Dukla mention the surname MEISNER many times. I do not know my connection to those families at this time.

    Ken Keller: Genealogy

    I am attempting to find out the fate of my ggf Hershel (Zvi Hersh) Keller, who lived in Dukla with one of his daughters and was in his 80's when the Nazis arrived there. Nothing further is known about him. We may be related to Kellers in Rzeszow, which is only a short distance north of Dukla and the town (Tyzycn) where my grandmother, Bertha Saltzman Keller, was born. Your web page includes the birth record of a Keile Keller in 1867. My ggm's maiden name was Geldzeller or Geldzeiler.Her children included Fanny, Joe, Paul (my gf b 1882), Louis, sister (name unknown who remained in Dukla possibly Keile?).

    Hersh Keller sold horses to the Polish cavalry. In 1905, he came to the U.S. to attend my gps' wedding in the Lower East Side of NYC, but returned to Dukla because he thought "NYC wasn't Jewish enough." Once the war started, contact was lost.

    I also heard from Marcel Keller who lives in Bensonhurst Brooklyn). He was a young boy in Dukla when the Germans rounded up his family; his gf Hersch Keller, perished in the camps and he was one of the very few survivors. I obtained a copy of his family tree, which goes back almost 300 years. I really appreciate your continuing interest and pursuing this subject with me!

    MARGULIES & TREFF from Dukla

    March 2019

    Robert Margulies emailed "I was forwarded a copy of your Jewish Gen KehilaLinks about Dukla, by a dear cousin, (Ida Langsam) whose family is also from Dukla. My grandparents Rosa and Wolf Margulies(I was informed) were born (or lived) in Dukla. Rosa was part of a larger Treff family. I believe they all moved to Berlin, where my father was born (in 1927). Your document lists my grandmother (Margulies, Rosa née Treff) in the 1939 Germany listing.

    In interesting events 10 little Treff kids were put on train shortly after Kristallnacht to Holland. Some of the other Treff kids survived in other ways and some kids were captured and didn’t survive. My father was then ‘taken’ to England where he stayed during war- then to US. After Kristallnacht my grandparents were deported back to Dukla and I have a photograph of them in Dukla shortly before they were murdered. (it’s actually a very poised and nice photo, under the circumstances).

    This is a birth certificate of my grandmother, born in Dukla: Rosa (Reisel) Treff. Born may 14 1898 in Dukla Poland."

    Editor's notes: the birth certificate is written in German. I sent it up to Tracing the Tribe on Facebook and to JewishGen's viewmate to get it translated.


    Also note that in the 1500 vital records our researcher found for Nowy Zmigrod and Dukla, Dwora Treff was a midwife in Dukla from 1915 through 1923. Jewish Records Indexing - Poland (JRI-Pl) has some vital records indexes online.

    Ida Langsom emailed in 2013; she said "My pgf came from Dukla, and his wife from Sanock - or the other way around...I never met my grandfather, Moishe Shlomo who was killed in the Holocaust - but I do have photos of him from my parents' wedding in Berlin in 1937." (editors note: i made up this simple tree for Robert and Ida: Osias (Yehoshua Zev) and Miriam TREFF
