3 sons and 2 sons in law of the above Zecharia. Further descendants

Leslie Reich, Manchester, UK






I have a copy of a letter which was written by a late relative which
claims
that our family descends >from Rav Zacharia Mendel.

The following is written about him in the Encyclopaedia Judaica:
Zechariah Mendel ben Aryeh Leib (d. after 1707) rabbi and author.
He was born in Cracow, where his father was rabbi of the community.
On his
father's death in 1671, Samuel KOIDONOVER was appointed to succeed
him,
while Zechariah Mendel was appointed rabbi of the main synagogue.
Some time
after 1674 he was appointed rabbi of Tvrobin and >from 1691 to 1700,
he was
rabbi of Belz. Zechariah was an active member of the Council of Four
Lands;
his signature appears on takkanot of the council issued during the
years
1688-1700.
He was the author of Ba'er Heitev on the Shulchan Aruch, Yoreh De'ah
(in Sh.
Ar., Amsterdam, 1754) and Hoshen Mishpat (in Sh. Ar., ibid, 1762), a
digest
of the halakhic comments on the Shulchan Aruch, similar to
commentaries of
the same name by Judah b. Simeon ASHKENAZI of Tiktin on Orah Hayyim,
Yoreh
De'ah, and Even ha-Ezer, by Isaiah b. Abraham on Orah Hayyim, and by
Moses
b. Simeon FRANKFURTER on Hoshen Mishpat. Later editions of the
Shulchan
Aruch generally contain Zechariah Mendel's Ba'er Heitev to Yoreh De'
ah and
Hoshen Mishpat and that of ASHKENAZI to Orah Hayyim and Even ha-Ezer.
Zechariah's son Joseph was av bet din in Bychawa, Jaslo, and Lublin.
The furthest that I can go back is to my gggf, Motel (Mordechai)
NAMIOT who
was born about 1830-5. His children all appear to have been born in
Zhetl
(now Dyatlovo), Belarus, during the period 1853 - 1869. The only
records
available for this shtetl appear to be some 1846 death records.

Marcel Apsel asked:_


I am doing a reserach on the Pne Joshua (1680-1756) for many years.
I know
I am a descendant of him, but I am not able to proof it
definitively,
probably due to one or two women, whioh were probably not listed.
I have
gathered quite a lot of information on the Pne Joshua and I am
willing to
share more information. I would like to get in touch with anybody
who has
some information on the Pne Joshua.
Although he did ask to reply privately, I think my response might be
of general interest to this list.

Not that long ago, I obtained >from Dr Neil Rosenstein a photo of the
gravestone of my g.g.f, Shloime HALBERTHAL (d.1910) buried in Brody,
now Ukraine.

I already knew of many of his famous rabbinical ancestors, but to my
astonishment, the stone stated that he was descended >from the Pnei
Yehoshua (1680-1756) and Rabbi Isaac (Reb Itzikel HAMBURGER) of
Hamburg (1715-1767).

The relationship between these two was as follows. Rabbi Isaac's
daughter, Pesel, was married to Rabbi Moshe of Czortkow (d.1809),
whose mother, Feigel, married to Rabbi Shlome Ber of Galuna (d.
1785), was a daughter of the P. Yehoshua.

But how was my ggf descended >from these two?

A knowledgable colleague of Dr Neil's, Mr DovBerish Weber of NYC,
suggested a highly probable hypothesis (won't bore the list with the
evidence) that this was via a son of the aforementioned Moshe and
Pesel, namely Yehoshua Yehuda of Czortkow, who had a son, Yitzchok
Elya of Zlazitz.

Harry Dodsworth <af877@...>
 

Don Einbinder <donjein@mediaone.net> has conflicting information about his
pgf's arrival on the Potsdam in 1903.
The EIDB shows him as arriving on July 28 but Morton-Allen and Cimorelli
(which use mostly the same data) do not show the Potsdam arriving in July.

This is not the first time Morton-Allen has been found to be wrong.
I checked the New York Times for July 29 and here is the arrival entry.

Arrived July 28; SS Potsdam, (Dutch), [captain] Potjer, Rotterdam July 18
and Boulogne July 19 with mdse and passengers to Holland-America Line.
Arrived at the Bar, 9.45 P.M.

So the NYT and the EIDB agree on a July 28 arrival. As the EIDB does
not have the full manifest, I think Don should order the microfilm
covering this date >from the LDS Family History Center.

Desparately Seeking Saul SAMUELS #general

Nurit Kraus-Friedberg <n.kraus-friedberg@...>
 

Hi, all!
I need to get in touch with a cousin who has fallen out of touch with the
rest of the family and I wonder if anyone out there knows him or if,
perhaps, he might read this himself.
His name is Saul Samuels, his mother's name was Ada, father was Sam. He
was the nephew of my grandmother Pauline who was Ada's sister. He last
visited my grandparents at their home in the Bronx back in the early
1970's. At the time he was living somewhere in New Jersey not far >from
New York, was married (or at least had been married) to a woman >from an
Italian family and had two children.
I'd very much appreciate any leads.
