Dear all.

I am still amazed of the great help which I received last week >from two
dear fellowresearchers, Sylvia Stawski and Monica van der Velden, both
from Netherlands.
Now I know that LEEFMANS had strong family ties in Schocken and Rogasen,
Posen province.

Hartog LEEFMANS's mother was Marca BENJAMIN >from Vreedenburg.
My great great grandmother, who married Simon LOSZYNSKI >from Schocken in
1802, was Esther Caecilia BENJAMIN.

Can someone suggest if there may have been a connection?
Is there a way to follow that connection?

I also would like to know if LEEFMANS could have been derived >from LAZARUS.

Since I have verbal evidence >from family members, about the origin of the
family >from Spain of pre 1492, I wonder if part of my Posen province
family came through Netherlands.
My BADT family are definitely of Sepharadic origin and are connected to
the Chayuth family and to RASH"I, my LAZARUS / NATHANSON connected to BADT
and OPPENHEIMER >from Sagan.

I understand that the Sepharadic families used to get married within the
extended families, but I have no written academic proof for that. Can
someone help with that? Best regards.

Hi All,

There were more Jewish people in South Carolina during the 1600s, 1700s and
1800s then anywhere else in the US because of the religious freedom. These
families were originally >from Spain, Poland, Germany, Russia, etc.

My son Jason Shaiman, is a Curator at the McKissick Museum in Columbia, SC.
He is the Project Manager of the above mentioned exhibit. This exhibit was
at the McKissick Museum >from January 2002 to April 2002. It is now at the
Gibbes Museum, Charleston, SC until November 16, 2002. The exhibit will
open at Yeshiva University Museum at the Center for Jewish History on
February 6, 2003 through July 2003. The Museum of the New South in
Charlotte, North Carolina will show the exhibit in the fall of 2003.

I thought you all would like to see the history of the beginning of Jewish
Life in South Carolina and the USA. The exhibit is most outstanding.

Ukmerge Shtetl list #lithuania

I have the list of shtetls in the Ukmerge (Vilkomer) area. Are all the
possible towns and villages in the Vilkomir area on that list? I am
trying to locate my family through a process of elimination. I know that
they were >from the Vilkomir area and I doubt that they were >from the
city.

My uncle when in his 90s told me that the town was called Prude or
Pude, but his memory may have been incorrect since he left there when he
was 6, and I have not found any town even remotely near that name nor any
person who could identify that town. Unfortunately there are no elders
of my family left to ask. The naturalization papers of the members of my
family all state they were born in and came >from Vilkomir.

Any suggestion would be most welcome.
Thank you in advance.

Help in getting started #ukraine

TaxTroll@...
 

Hi everyone. I'm new to the SIG and would appreciate any advice on
getting started in my Ukranian research. The surnames I'm researching
right now are LUTSKY and KANTROWITZ/KANTOROWITZ. Per my gg-grandfather's
US naturalization papers, the family emigrated >from Kiev ca. 1905-6 (don't
know if that refers to the city or gubernia). The LUTSKY name isn't very
common in the US so my US research has been fairly easy but now I have to
deal with a foreign language that I know nothing of. I do have Miriam
Weiner's Jewish Roots book for the Ukraine but it's a little bit of
overload right now.

Thanks for any help

Brazilian Ambassador Sousa DANTAS #germany

ystern@...
 

I'm searching for passports of Jewish emigrants who left Marseille in
1940-1941, containing visas issued by the Brazilian Ambassador Luiz
Martins de Souza DANTAS.

Most of the emigrants came to Brazil, but many others used the visas
to get to other countries, mostly to the USA.

Fabio Koifman, a History Professor >from Rio de Janeiro, recently published
a very interesting book about the life of the Brazilian Ambassador
Luiz Martins de Souza DANTAS, who served in France during the Holocaust.

DANTAS issued visas to hundreds of Jews in occupied France after the Nazi
takeover in 1940. He did this against strict orders >from the pro-fascist
Brazilian government headed by Getulio Vargas and at great risk to his
diplomatic career.

Several of the Jews who arrived in Brazil were detained by the Brazilian
government but were released later on. DANTAS was among the diplomats
sent to Germany by the Nazis in 1942. He spent 14 months interned in Bad
Godesberg.

These facts, still not very well known in Brazil, are focused on by
Koifman's book, which will certainly contribute to the acknowledgement
process of Souza DANTAS (as a Righteous Gentile) by Yad Vashem.
