Hello,

Joining in the thread of names meaning, "long," my maternal relatives
lived in Grajewo, Rajgrod and Filipow, Poland (Lomza and Suwalki gubernia).
The surname was LANGUS, which I was always told meant, "long one." I didn't
get those LANGUS genes, but we have many tall people in the family!

I assume this was derived >from a Yiddish word, but am not fluent enough to
say that for certain.

Re: Zolty Family in Lodz #lodz #poland

Stephen Strum, MD <stephen@...>
 

Dear Franck,

My family history goes back to the founding of the Jewish community of Lodz:
Pinchas ZONNENBERG (1774-1830) and Jacub HAMBURSKI(1798-1855) and their
descendants.

I tried to attach a jpg of a screen shot of my family in terms of their
relationship to the ZYLBERBERGs (Josef (Josek) born in 1836). However, file
attachments probably are not shared on this email forum. Therefore, I will
send you privately the screen shot so that you can visualize a possible
family relationship. I wish this forum allowed for attachments of a
reasonable file size.

There are GREENSPANs in my family history as well. However, I could not find
any variation on the spelling such as GRYNSZPAN. I hope that perhaps some
of these leads may reveal additional family members.

Regards,
Stephen B. Strum (son of Rose Hamburger [changed >from Hamburski] Ashland,

Subject: [lodz] Zolty Family in Lodz

I'm searching informations about my family in Lodz Region, I
send you the search of my ZOLTY's family :


To thank you for your interest in my genealogy, I am sending you my notes
about my family links to Herschel Feibel GRYNSZPAN

THE ZOLTY-GRYNSZPAN FAMILY

My grandfather, David Kalma ZOLTY, knew Herschel Feibel GRYNSZPAN as they
came >from the same Shtetl : Nowo-Radomsk, voivodie of Piotrkow Trybunalski
in Pologne. Herschel was the nephew of one of his cousins,: Szalma ZOLTY who

worked in the same shtetl.

Aharon ZOLTY, the cousin of my mother was born on Thursday 8 July 1926.
Her father, Szlomo died in the Ghetto de Lodz, on 20 August 1942. He
expected a very difficult situation. The parents of Aharon: Szlomo ZOLTY
and Dina KORN felt the beginning of Polish anti-Semitism:

After the revolution of 1905, the Jewish population increased as a result of

the influx of Lithuanian Jews in the industrial centers of the province,
Warsaw and Lodz. Polish patriots were worried to see that the Jews had, in
their hands, the principal branches of business and industry. They accused
the Lithuanian Jews on the one hand, of trying to Russianize Poland, because

they spoke Russian in the streets of Warsaw and Lodz, and on the other, to
try to create a second Jewish land, because they lived in a compact and
united community. Others accused the Jews of Germanizing Poland, because
the spoke a Jewish Germanic language - Yiddish. The industrial and business

class in Poland eliminated the Jews >from vital economic life by boycotting.

This polish anti-Semitism was conjugated with Nazism which provoked the
revolt of Herszel Feilbel GRYNSZPAN which led him to this attack.

Aharon ZOLTY, rescued >from Auschwitz tells us that Herschel in
prison might have been protected by Jewish organizations who would have
given a fee to the German authorities during the entire war. Or perhaps, a
more plausible explanation, he was kept alive as proof of the nuisance that
was the Jewish people in the expectation of a great trial.

Our cousin, Aharon ZOLTY remembers that before he was deported, he was
identified by a journalist as being part of the "assassin's family."

The thing that led to Herschel's rancor was that his parents had been thrown

out of Germany (Hamburg) to the No Man's Land between Poland and Germany7,
and that Poland didn't want them any more. There were more than 15000 in
this situation. A bit later, Zendel GRYNSZPAN, father of Herschel, seems to

have fought in the Russian army6. His parents are both dead now, Zendel
was 96 at his death. Remaining is the wife of the brother of Herschel with
whom Aharon is still in contact.

Aharon ZOLTY was always invited to family festivities, such as the silver
anniversary of Herschel's parents.

Herschel Feibel GRYNSZPAN did not survive the war.

After his liberation >from the death camps, Aharon Zolty found the family
ZOLTY-GRYNSZPAN in Israel.

My grandfather, David Kalma ZOLTY, persuaded that he had lost his entire
polish family, because he couldn't find out about them through various
organizations like the International Red Cross, did not speak about this
cousin Herschel to his children.

It was only through my research on the Jewishgen site, last year, that I
found two cousins of my mother: Joseph ZOLTY, deported to Treblinka and
Aharon ZOLTY, deported to Auschwitz, both living in Israel and whose stories

allowed us to undertake this research

Joseph ZOLTY's wife never understood the attitude of the German
people. She was herself a native of Czernowitz (Bukovine, today, Ukraine)
and had received a German culture. She was, later, rescued in the death
camps. Once liberated, Eti PRESHEL married Joseph ZOLTY in Chypre and left
for Israel permanently in 1948.

Other bits of information came to me through my request on the Jewishgen
site, where I learned that Mr Ilan KRAUSE, living en Israel, is also a
descendent of the ZOLTY-GRYNSZPAN family.

The grandparents of Ilan KRAUSE (David Krojle and Rajzla GOLDBERG) were
first cousins of Itta ZYLBERBERG and Szalma ZOLTY, uncles of Herschel Feibel

GRYNSZPAN, and first cousins of my grandfather David Kalma ZOLTY. Ilan
KRAUSE, born in 1959, he married Irit SCHETCHTMAN (born 3 November 1960 in
Moscow) in Israel. Itta ZYLBERBERG's grandfather : Herszik Faywel ZYLBERBERG

was also the grandfather of the grandfather of Ilan KRAUSE.

Need Translation of Polish Birth Certificate (VM 7820) #general

Deborah Dworski <ddworski@...>
 

Hi,
I just received a Polish Birth Certificate bearing our family's elusive
surname. I'd be grateful for a translation of the entire document (about 7
lines), but I'd settle for some opinions about the surname on the 3rd line
or so, following the handwritten name 'Michli." Family lore is that the
original family surname was BRONEWICZ, but it does not appear as if that is
the name written--or maybe I just cannot decipher the penmanship. Following
is a direct link to the document which is posted at ViewMate (VM 7820):

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7820

I'd be grateful for prompt assistance as it would be useful to know the
surname before a research trip to Salt Lake in a few days. Please respond
privately to my e-mail address above. Thank you in advance.

Jewish genealogists have access to few primary genealogical sources. Where
they do exist, Mohel Books - or circumcision registries - provide a valuable
window into the fabric of Jewish society in times past.

Unfortunately, few Mohel Books have survived the Holocaust, and even fewer
are publicly available. Obviously, they only list male children.

For the rural community of Huerben in Bavarian Swabia, Germany, the
transcript of a Mohel Book covering the period >from 1800 to 1837 is
available at the Leo Baeck Institute Archives in New York.

Ralph Bloch will describe what he found, while he worked his way through
this document.

New Lithuanian Book #general

Rabbi Ben-Zion Saydman <ravbenzi@...>
 

Dear Descendants of Anshei Rumshishok and Litvaks everywhere:

I am pleased to inform you that a new book has just been published about the
Jewish communities of the Kaisiadorys Region of Lithuania by Rolandas
Gustaitis. Rolandas and his wife, Neringa, are Lithuanian scholars we
befriended some time ago. Rolandas' book is written in Lithuanian and the
translated title is "Jews In the Kaisiadorys Region". Vic Mayper reports
that the book contains an entire chapter about the history of Jewish
Rumshishok (Rumsiskes) which includes photographs and 28 pages of text.
Gevaldik!

I am also pleased to inform you that our dear friend and gutte neshoma,

for us. I wish to publicly acknowledge both Rolandas Gustaitis and Leonas
Bekeris and thank them on behalf of the DAR. Due to their selfless efforts,
we will soon
be able to reclaim a portion of our shared Lithuanian history, once thought
lost forever. Further developments will be posted on our Rumshishok

Dear Descendants of Anshei Rumshishok and Litvaks everywhere:

I am pleased to inform you that a new book has just been published about the
Jewish communities of the Kaisiadorys Region of Lithuania by Rolandas
Gustaitis. Rolandas and his wife, Neringa, are Lithuanian scholars we
befriended some time ago. Rolandas' book is written in Lithuanian and the
translated title is "Jews In the Kaisiadorys Region". Vic Mayper reports
that the book contains an entire chapter about the history of Jewish
Rumshishok (Rumsiskes) which includes photographs and 28 pages of text.
Gevaldik!

I am also pleased to inform you that our dear friend and gutte neshoma,
Leonas Bekeris, has offered to translate the Rumshishok chapter into English
for us. I wish to publicly acknowledge both Rolandas Gustaitis and Leonas
Bekeris and thank them on behalf of the DAR. Due to their selfless efforts,
we will soon
be able to reclaim a portion of our shared Lithuanian history, once thought
lost forever. Further developments will be posted on our Rumshishok
