Rabbi Alexander Sender SCHOR #rabbinic

Tomer Brunner
 

Shalom friends,

My g-g-grandfather, Moshe MARTON of Szombathely (Hungary), was born
in 1842 in Fekete-Ardo, a village in the Carpathian mountains
(today: Chernotisov, Ukraine).

His mother was Feiga SCHOR, whose family lived in or around Lviv
(Lemberg, Lwow). She was descended >from Rabbi Alexander Sender
SCHOR, author of "Tevuot Shor." Rabbi Alexander Sender SCHOR died
in 1737 in Zolkiew (today: Zhovkva, Ukraine).

I would be most interested to know of other families who are
descended >from Rabbi Alexander Sender SCHOR, especially >from his
sons (but also daughters). I was only able to find details about
his daughters and their descendants so far (in books).

Thanks for any help!
Best wishes for a Happy and Kosher Pesach!

Tomer Brunner, Israel

WWI veterans guarded the Danzig synagogue #poland #danzig #gdansk #germany

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

In his autobiography, "On the Vistula Facing East," Israeli sculptor and
former Danziger Frank Meisler writes, "On the night of 12 November 1938,
when Nazi stormtroopers burned down the synagogues of Langfuhr and Zoppot,
Arthur [LEVANDOVSKY] guarded the Danzig Central Synagogue, club in hand,
with other First World War veterans. But the police intervened and the
synagogue remained intact until its 'official demolition' some six months
later. Violence and arson would not have looked too well in a place located
next door to Police Headquarters and the Fire Brigade."

Does anyone else remember this incident? Does anyone know how the veterans
were organized, and, in particular, whether there was an organization of
Jewish WWI veterans in Danzig? (Perhaps, it was a local chapter of the
Reichsbund Juedischer Frontsoldaten.) Such an organization's records, if
they survive, might have genealogical content.

Thanks and best wishes for Passover,

Napoleon's soldiers #lithuania

irene jalowayski
 

My husband's family lived in Kobylnik now in Belarus but at the time
of Napoleon's invasion it was part of the Palatinat of Vilna. His
ancestor fought in Napoleon's army and this man's son was my husband's
great great grandfather. That was Alexander Jalowayski who then was
forced to leave the country when he took part in an uprising against
the Russians in 1832. He was allowed to enter France because his
father has fought with Napoleon against the Russians. Evidently there
were many people in Lithuania at the time that did so because they did
not want the Russians to rule them. So Alexander entered France and
wound up in St Jean D'Angely where he worked as a banker, married and
had a family. The next generation of Jalowayski's went to Cuba and
from there has wound up in the USA. I think if we look there were
probably a lot of Lithuanians, both Jews and gentiles, who tried to
fight the Russians.

Immigration Question #lithuania

adam1gs@...
 

Would anyone know what was involved in bringing a family member to the
US >from Poland during the 1930's ? For example: If my grandfather, who
was a US Citizen, and living in the US, wanted to bring a son or a
daughter >from Poland to this country, how would he go about doing this.

Would he need an attorney to represent him ? Did he have to file certain
papers with the US Government to get permission to bring his children to
the US ? Would he have to go through the local or county courthouse to
post a bond or file any papers ? If anyone could tell me what was involved
in this procedure it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you -
