31 Oct 2000: Jan Hastrich - (Netherlands) - HASTRICH - 1) Are their Polish (family) names that might have been rendered into German HASTRICH?
- 2) Does, or did, a place exist with the name HASTRICH or something like it, perhaps in Poland? Nowadays European HASTRICH's are found mainly in the Westerwald area (north west of Koblenz), but I suspect the family had other, more eastly - and maybe older - dwellings as well. First, there are tales in my part of the family suggesting that they lived somewhere near the river Oder (Odra, Poland). Secondly, friends of mine recall to have seen - in the 1980's - a (place name) sign with the name on it somewhere in south east Germany or south Poland. (Unfortunately they paid no attention to it and do not remember anything more precise).
Thirdly, though the name HASTRICH seems perfectly German to me, it might
be just the German variant of a name in some other language. The most
likely explanation of German HASTRICH would be as a place name: there
are in western Germany many place names ending in -RICH, meaning
something like "real estate"; the HAST- part however remaines
unexplained. Furthermore I didn't succeed in locating any place with
this name on (historical) maps or place name dictionaries.

29 Oct 2000: Glenn Kloiber (USA) - OLSZAK - Gratefully, just read about you in Eastman's Newsletter. Is Michael OLSZAK possibly a Polish name? Have heard it pronounced "OL CHUCK".

28 Oct 2000:NFatouros@aol.com (USA) - Naomi Fatouros (nee FELDMAN), Bloomington, Indiana: Researching: BELKOWSKY, Odessa, Berdichev; FELDMAN, Pinsk; SHUTZ, SCHUTZ, Shcherets; LEVY, Mulhouse. - I am researching the surname "BELKOVSKY" or "BELKOVSKI" (and sometimes
"BILKOVSKI." I know from Fred Hoffman on the GenPol Mail Group that there
are over 300 BELKOWSKYs in Poland, none of whom, it seems, are Jewish, as
mine were, and that the BELKOWSKIs or BELKOWSKYs I've found in the US
especially in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan seem to be Catholic. - I also found a website which mentioned the armorials of the BELKOWSKIS. My theory about my family BELKOVSKI members is that they could have taken their surname if they had managed the estates of the Polish BELKOWSKIs, although Alexander BEIDER in his Jewish Names from the Russian Empire says that the name may come from the towna of BELKI or BELKA. My BELKOVSKIs were born in Berdichev and Odessa and perhaps in Radomysl.
