I believe this Association published a medical journal called * Medical
Leaves* (some of the volumes are in our hospital library).

American Jewish Historical Society has some of the archives for the
Baron Hirsch Foundation.

He also funded a colony in the southern most part of Brazil. I have
an index of some of the families who were brought over to start a
farming community.

My great-grandfather was buried in a section run by the Baron Hirsch
organization in New York. Is there anyway to locate records of those
that he helped....especially like where some of these people actually
originated from. In all the records that we've obtained so far, they
only say the empire of Russia as point of origin.

Also, I remember seeing a lot of turn of the century photos in a book,
I can't remember the name, of students that attended a school or schools
that he opened for the emigrants.

DUBETSKY, NAJMAN, NAJMARK families of Kobrin #belarus

Martin Miller <millerm@...>
 

Those of you with Kobrin connections and web access please have a look
at a photo on my web site at http://web.syr.edu/~millerm/zadiebw.jpg.

This picture was taken during my grandfather's visit to Kobrin in 1932.
His name was Osher DUBETSKY, however in the US he was known as Sam DUBIN.
His mother was Sarah Rifka GOLUBOVITCH. Two sisters remained in Kobrin
with their husbands.

My grandfather is in the center of the picture with his mother to the
right.

At the left is his sister Pesha Chaya NAJMAN and her husband, whose
first name is not known. At the right is sister Maram Itke NAJMARK
and her husband Yankel. There are five children in the family group. The two boys in the window were neighbors. Both sisters were pregnant at the time the picture was taken. One had twins. So there were at least eight children between the two, who were my mother's first cousins.

No one in the family knows the names of these children. All are
presumed to have perished in the Holocaust. I am hoping that someone
will recognize one or more of the folks in the picture. Or does anyone
know a former resident of Kobrin that could identify them?

Re: Megilath Esther #general

I have been asked by a cousin of mine to help in tracing the scribe
of a scroll of Esther, which he inherited >from his mother.
I didn't know it was possible to figure out the exact scribe of a megillah.
How is that possible -- does the handwriting vary that much?

My husband's family also has an old scroll - a megillah that supposedly
belonged to a great grandfather >from Husaityn, Galicia.

Was this something that was common for a family to own? Did they have to be
very wealthy? Why would one son bring it to America, when only 3 sons came
to US and the rest of the family stayed behind?

Any information on this would be greatly appreciated. I have never really
thought about the history of the Megillah that I now have in my closet. Or
ever thought it would be possible to trace independantly of family stories
--( there are none.)

Happy Hanukkah,
