Lejba and Mira Goldberg #belarus

Davidgoldberg@...
 

I am coresponding with a woman that is trying to locate her mother's lost
family. Here is her story.

In October 1942, on the ground, where was ghetto walked hundreds of
Brestian (people who lives in Brest, survived war, they weren't Jewish
of course). They were looking for blankets, clothes etc.) Among other
people was Jadwiga Kuzio, who was looking for a quilt. In the tenement
house, which stand on the corner of streets Listowskiego and
Dabrowskiego she found a quilt with monograms JG. This house belongs to
Goldberg family. Under the quilt lied my mother, whole in blood. She had
got an injury on her neck. My mother was about two years old. Jadwiga
Kuzio dressed the injury and carried away quilt with my mum in the
capacity of package to home. On the door was nameplate with
caption-Goldberg on it. In room, belong the bed hanged a marriage photo.
This information my mother heard in day of 18 birthday >from Jadwiga
Kuzio. This remember Jadwiga Kuzio, she adopted her and brought her up.
She died 10 years ago. My mother is still alive.
We want to reconstruct my mums history. >from 2000 year my mum belong to
Association of Holocaust Children.
Maybe you remember who lived in tenement house on the corner of Street
Lisowskiego and Dabrowskiego? Every information is very valuable for us.
It can help us make a world, where lived my mum.
I was in Brest few days ago. Unfortunately, the synagogue and houses
didn't exist now. I met Mr. Szlomo Weinstein, who survived and still
lives in Brest. He lived behind the rabbi house, behind the synagogue.
He remembers that, on the round the corner was billiards and shop with
alcohol. Unfortunately, he didn't remember who lived behind the shop.
from the archive in Brest we got documents concerning Lejba and Mira
Goldberg. I sent you copies of these documents. They lived on Dluga
Street. After the ghetto was made, this Street wasn't on ghetto side, so
probably left to their family on Dabrowskiego Street and there my mother
was found. Jadwiga Kuzio was there with her German friend, Helena Lik,
who was trade in ghetto and probably knows family and the child. She
urged Mrs. Kuzio to take the child and take care about it. We try to
find this person. Unfortunately, we can't get information about Mira
Goldberg cause there isn't her maiden name in documents. Maybe we'll in
Brest in May, then we will visit Czerniany too.
Maybe you know somebody who lived in Brest? We are trying to get as much
information as we can. We never should shut the door ahead the history.

Best wishes

Does anyone have the current telephone number of the Central Archives of the
History of the Jewish People on the Behrew University campus in Jerusalem?
The number I have is apparently out of date.

Mt Nebo look up #general

Michael/Wilma Fischer <miketran@...>
 

Is there anyone out there in the vicinity of Mt Nebo, in Queens NY who
could get some information off of a grave?
When I called the cemetery to get a date of death >from someone who died
in 1901, they sent someone to look at the stone, since they don't have
paper records, going back that far. The only thing in English was the year
of death, the rest was 7 lines of Hebrew which he couldn't read. It is
really important that I know what else is on there. I want to try to get the
deceased's day of death so I can send for his death certificate. This man
may be my great great grandfather.
No one knows if he even came to this country but his name and that of
his wife who is buried next to him fit what we know.
I would be more than willing to pay someone for their trouble or make a
donation to Jewish Gen. If you don't know Hebrew, a picture will be very
much appreciated.

Re: ukraine digest: February 16, 2002 #ukraine

There was a thread about this a while ago. My grandparents emigrated
from Podolia via Roumania, and intentionally ditched their genuine
Russian papers and traveled to the US with false Roumanian papers. I
didn't find them in the EIDB until I broadened my search in an
unreasonable way. Apparently, there was an "underground" to help
Jewish immigrants get papers and navigate the pitfalls of
restrictions on who Ellis Island would admit.

Joe

Even though Evan asked for private responses, I think it's an
issue for many of us so I'm answering with my own confusion just
to reiterate his problem.

When my deceased father and aunt escaped >from Moghilev-Podilskiy
in 1922, then went to an aunt who was already living in
Bucharest and gave that as their hometown when emigrating from
Bremen a few months later.

I too am confused as to why, apparently, so many Podolian
families would have branches so far away. Is anyone out there
familiar enough with the history of the region to answer this
without further research? (Which of course I will do.)

Help reading tombstone #ukraine

Fran Segall <Fran_Segall@...>
 

I have posted a picture of a tombstone at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/source/vm1306.html
The tombstone is that of my cousin, Harry (Hersh) Strick, who died March 23,
1920. His death cert. gives his father's name as Mike. His father's pass.
manifest has his name as Mailech. Can someone help me with the father's name
on Harry's tombstone and how it might "translate" to Michael or Mailech?
The first name looks like Shimon, which wouldn't be Michael as far as I
know, and I can't read the next word at all.
Your help, as always, would be appreciated!

FEINSTEIN/FINESTONE:Ukraine>MA,NY;1840-- #ukraine

Alan R Rosenfield <arosen@...>
 

It's been about a year, so I'm trying again.


I hope that someone has information on my paternal grandmother's family.
We are searching for ancestors and descendants of Israel FEINSTEIN
(sometimes listed as FINESTONE). The son of Samuel FEINSTEIN, he was born
in Zhitomir, Ukraine in 1839/40 and was married to Bella (Blume) ALEXANDER
or BERNSTEIN. He had a sister-in-law named Leah.

Israel and Blume emigrated to Chelsea MA in 1901. All nine of their
children had preceded them to Chelsea:
Abraham changed his name to GORDON and married Dora (Dvera)
ROSENFIELD.
Nathan changed his name to FINESTONE and married Bessie FINKEL.
Simon (Shimon) changed his name to STARR and married Bessie
GINSBERG.
Sophie (Shiva) married John ALBERT.
Clara married Alexander ROSENFIELD. These were my
grandparents.
Sonya (Shininda) married Jacob FINGOLD.
Harry changed his name to FINESTONE and married Fannie
SCHULTZ.
Elizabeth (Leah) never married.
Samuel changed his name to FINESTONE. His
wife was Anna SMITH or SANDERS.

We will be happy to share information if there is a match.
