Shalom to the Discussion Group

For a couple of years I've been trying to trace an ancestor, Rabbi
Avram-Itse (or perhaps Ephraim) MOWSOWITZ, who left Seda, Lithuania for
England in the 1890's. England apparently wasn't "frum" enough for him,
and he set off for South Africa, where family legend says he became Chief
Rabbi, although that's certainly an exaggeration.....
I have a photograph of Avram-Itse and his family in England, and also one
of a South African rabbi (Rabbi Eliezer Hillel MATTHEWS) who I think
bears a strong resemblance to him, and who could possibly be Avram-Itse
under a different name.

My question to the group is this: to whom can I turn for an examination
of the 2 photos (comparison of facial structure, etc) and a professional
opinion as to whether or not they are the same person ? Private replies
would be apreciated...

With thanks for any helpful suggestions, and Shalom >from a troubled Israel

Re: Kleczew #general

Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

This is a reply to Cathy and Jan Engel:

Kleczew is a town that had a Jewish community
and it is located about 20 km NW of Konin, in the
westernmost reaches of former Czarist Poland, near
the border with Posen Province in Prussia.

The LDS has microfilmed the Jewish vital records
for the period 1826-1883 and JRI Poland has
indexed records for the period 1871-1879.

I'm searching for the families
WARMBRUN and SZPIRO in this town.

Re: Old Mens NY/NJ Draft in NYC NARA #general

Hello -

Ron Goldman asked (and I have had some direct questions):

Subject: Old Mens NY/NJ Draft in NYC NARA
Date: Sat, 6 Jul 2002 09:58:06 -0400
Can anyone who's seen these filled out cards post the questions
asked of these "Old men"?

I'm wondering what info might be of value other than a current
address, possible Social Security #, and DOB if these guys were
born in NY.

Were any questions asked about their parents' vital stats, immigration
dates, or town of birth?
First, the applicable date of birth period: April 28 1877 to Feb 16 1897
for this draft in April 1942.

Second: here is what is on the face of the cards: Name, address,
telephone number, age, place of birth, date of birth, contact person,
employer and work address, and signature. On reverse side: Race (1 of 5
boxes), Height, Weight, Eyes (1 of 5 boxes), Hair (1 of 6 boxes
including "bald"), Complexion (1 of 8 boxes), Other physical
characteristics, Registrars signature with local board number and date,
and then below a place for a stamp of local board. The script board and
the stamp may not be the same. As I prepare this report, I see an Apr 42
date and board 12 in script, and a Jul 44 date and board 81 stamped.

So - Soc Sec # is not shown, even though the program was in effect for
several years, and nothing at all about parents.

Please - I am 58 years young, and not an "Old Man", and was less so when I
turned 45. I believe the correct reference is the Fourth Draft for WW2.

My comment:

The "postage stamp" my not be a postage stamp but a kind of tax stamp that
e.g. in Austria until fairly recently had to be affixed on any official
document or application e.g. for a passport and onto a passport itself
("Stempelmarke").
