Immigration from France to Canada #general

MHall10498@...
 

Hello;
I am trying to find the route that my maternal grandfather,Arie
Louis ACHBAR would have taken to get >from Marseilles France to Toronto
Canada in 1927. He was in Palestine (Tel Aviv) in April of 1927. All I
know is that on June 14, 1927, he arrived in Toronto.
I do not know how he would have gotten >from Tel Aviv to
Marseilles.
I am guessing that he took a train >from wherever in Canada he
landed to Toronto.
Does anyone know how long it would take for a ship to travel >from
France to Canada,(assuming it didn't stop in England or somewhere else
before crossing the Atlantic)?
Is there a way to find out which ships left >from which ports?
I would appreciate any help you kind folks could give me.
Thank you.

Sharen,

They could have come >from anywhere. My Minneapolis relatives came in

Any suggestions as to other ports I should be checking into for

Bracha SHAR (Zehava COHEN)-Chmielnik; Toronto #general

Howard Zakai
 

Dear Genners,

This is actually quite interesting and informative. Not long ago I
had posted a message regarding a cousin, born in Chmielnik, Poland at the
beginning of the War. Her name was Bracha KAUFERSTICK - the daughter of
Paula KAUFMAN and Yechiel KAUFERSTICK. She is featured in the town's
Journal, Pinkas Chmielnik (Yiddish, Tel Aviv, 1960) which states she was
in the Israeli army and she married Avraham SHAR in 1958. My father
believes they wound up in Toronto.
I did not have too much luck, except for a couple of doubtful SHAR
listings in Toronto...
Tonight I received an email >from the Ronald S.Lauder Foundation,
pointing me to The Ghetto Fighters' House Archive at <www.gfh.org.il> (it
is in both Hebrew and English). It referred me to a specific catalog
number (1042 in this case) and long and behold is a picture of my cousin,
Braindel Koupershtuck, age 8, who was apparently put in the care of non-
Jews during the War and recovered by the Zionist
movement, "Coordinatsia." Perhaps this is the reason why her article in
Pinkas Chmielnik is entitled "A little bit of luck." Unfortunately I
cannot read Yiddish and my grandmother cannot read the small print.
In any case, the site says Braindel/Bracha is now known as Zehava
COHEN. I have no clue where she would be now, but I will start with
Toronto. If anybody knows of this individual please reply to me privately.

Cheers,

Howie Zakai

need help with Chicago directory research #general

Howard Zakai
 

Dear Genners,

An elderly cousin of mine remembers having an uncle/half-uncle/step-
uncle (who knows!) in Chicago during the War. Would anyone be willing to
look up a Murray ROBINS (or Robbins) in a Chicago city directory or
telephone book as of 1942 and later? Ideally, I would actually need to see
until what year this individual was listed, and thus indicating (most
probably) when he died.
I would then attempto to obtain his death certificate. If he was an uncle
of some sort, he was most probably born in 1870s Russia (may have later
lived in England) - but I am not sure. In exchange, I would be willing to
help someone out with New York City research, especially with the National
Archives (federal court naturalizations, census records, etc) and the
Municipal Records (NYC vital records till 1940s). Hope to hear >from someone
soon.

Regards,

I've just received a response to a request for records that I made to a
Russian archives. The response consists of a cover letter, a two-page form
of some kind, and a bill (in English). I've posted all four pages (although
only the first three need a translation) to the JewishGen ViewMate web site
at <http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html>. The particular file
numbers of the cover letter, the two pages of the form, and the bill are,
respectively, VM1181, VM1182, VM1183, and VM1184, which can be accessed
directly by going to
<http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/source/vm1181.html>,

<http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/source/vm1183.html>, and
<http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/source/vm1184.html>, respectively.
Would anyone be willing and able to translate these for me? Any help would
be greatly appreciated. Please e-mail any responses directly to me at
