Date   
WEISS family -- found! #general

Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

Last night I received >from Avrum Geller an entire run-down of my missing
WEISS family. Birthdates, addresses, phone numbers. I spoke on the phone
to my second cousins and we already exchanged emails.

Thanks, Avrum, and thanks to the many others who did look-ups, sent ideas
and tips.I reprint here his method, published in the Discussion Group Digest
of May 4th:

"This is an easy search using Stephen Morse search engines. First, using
"Birthdays and Related Persons" enter Mildred WEISS AND New York (state),
search, and scan the list until you see a related group with Mildred, Mark,
and Richard (and -- although deceased -- Melvin is listed too). Note the
age of each individual and the town(s). [By searching each name
individually, you can also obtain each exact birthdate]. Next, using
"Birthdays and Addresses" put in the birth year and search each name again.
Note the towns and phones. Next, using "Phonebook lookups" put in the name
and the town and run it again to ascertain that the address and phone you
have found is the current listing. This provides valid information on
address and phone for Richard J. WEISS in Port Washington, NY and for Mark
R. WEISS in Princeton Junction, NJ. [Mildred was not as readily found -- it
is, of course, easier to find phone listings under men's names than women's
names]."

Dear Friends,

My mother's birth record, registered on January 1921, include two witnesses:

Icek JAKUBOWICZ, age 32, lithographer, and Srul FRYDEL, age 21, painter.

I wonder if these were professional witnesses or family friends.

If any of you encountered records >from Lodz >from circa 1921
with the above names, or know the above people, I would be glad to know.

Many thanks and Shabbat Shalom

Take a Look at Friday's Conference Schedule #lodz #poland

Before you book that return plane ticket, or plan to hop on the
train to your summer home or to take off for the beach, please
look at the Conference's Friday morning schedule. We have some
very exciting talks and events planned that morning that you
won't want to miss.

We have been blessed with over 260 presentations. Rather than
keeping everyone awake until midnight every night to attend
them, we opted to schedule a full morning of sessions on
Friday, Aug. 18, >from 8:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

If you're interested in Jews >from Lithuania, Ukraine, Hungary,
Greece, Transcarpathia, Scotland -- or New York...

If you'd like to gain exposure on the Internet, unearth deep
dark secrets about the criminals in your family's past, or find
other "Jews in the news"...

If you need advice on getting organized, publishing your
research, or conserving your photos and documents...

If you're searching for living relatives or trying to learn
more about Shoah victims or survivors...

If you hope to understand your "chochka" (or how a word comes
to be spelled that way)...

If you want to hear the story of a genealogist who became
"suddenly Jewish"...

...Friday has something for you. I suggest that you read about
Friday's sessions on the Conference web site

www.jgsny2006.org/conference_program.cfm

One of these programs requires some preparation. For "The
Jewish Chochka and Ephemera Road Show" (Session 408), Rafi
Guber requests that registrants bring family items, documents,
photos, and ephemera to the conference. He and a panel will
help determine when and >from where the items originated and any
other secrets they may reveal about your family. Please
remember to bring along items for this exciting session.

Stay through the 18th and leave on a chai!

Re: ViewMate help, place name in "Prussia" #germany

Dear Judith,

... I think it is written in English, because of "Prussia" and badly
spelled... probably the writer wanted to write in English how it sounded, I
read "Schweiseng" which actually exists as "Schweising".
it sounds too like the existing following towns in Posen:
Scheringen ........................Kreis Schroda, Provinz Posen
Schwersenz ........................Kreis Posen Ost, Provinz Posen
but I think it is very probably... Schweising in CZ
and in CZECH.......Svojsin
it is a very little village....... 450 inhabitants! you'll find much
information in their webpage: http://www.svojsin.cz/en_index.html

post long quotations >from sources that are available on the Internet.]

We firstly note Svojsin the name in written streams in attribute to Oldrich and

Hello to all.

Does somebody have information about SASS family or ZWEIG family from
Podvolochisk?

My grandfather, Michael Sass, escaped >from there when the nazis got closer,
and all of his family were probably killed. His father's name is Moshe Zwei=
g,
and his mother's name is Bina Sass. He had a brother, Velvle (Wolf),
and a sister, Perl (Hanna).

As far as I know, Podvolochisk was once a part of Poland,
but today it's a part of Ukraine.

Lipsa Fleishman #lithuania

Jon Seligman
 

Hello all,

I am looking for information concerning my great-grandmother. Unfortunately
we have almost no details.

Her name was Lipsa Fleishman. She was born in 1864, probably in Lithuanian
Russia, and died in Johannesburg in South Africa in 1934. She married Aaron
Lederman of Shadova (Seduva) in Lithuania. They have six children, five
born in Shadova, before their emigration to South Africa around 1905, and
the last in South Africa.

Lipsa’s fathers name was Issac. We do not know in which town she was born.
I have failed to trace a Fleishman family in Shadova till now.

If any of this rings a bell please contact me privately.

( her family name before marriage was :ZILLEG).
His father was a driver and he die before the war, his

He also had a brother named Leslo who lived in
Budapest after the war and die some years ago.
My father remember that they lived in novibazar 7 on
