Searching KEIZMAN, KEJZMAN #warsaw #poland

We are posting this message on behalf of Ricardo Keizman. The message was
received in Spanish. This is the translation:


<< I am searching for any KEIZMAN family that might be related to mine.
These are the few facts I know:
My father's name was Jose (Yosef) KEIZMAN. His passport showed him as
KEJZMAN. He was born on 25 February 1888 and died in Argentina on 19 July
1967. He had arrived in Argentina on the steamship Rio Deseado in 1924,
with my mother Elka Gitla HOJGLIK, [Spanish spelling for HOCHGLIK], and
three daughters:
- Aida, the eldest was born 1915;
- Clara born in 1921
- Sara, the youngest Sara was born on 12 January 1924. All have already died.
Here in Argentina they had two sons, the eldest named Leon who was born
on 17 November 1926 and me. I was born in 1931.

My father had a sister in Argentina. Her name was Elisa or Leie. Prior to
arriving in Argentina my parents lived in Warsaw. I am not sure where my
father came >from but my mother was >from Warsaw.

My grandfather, my father's father, was named Elias Leon. He was born
probably in 1865 and I have no other facts to tell you about him except
that when my father's mother died (her name was probably Miriam), my
grandfather got married again to a woman named Raquel (Rachel) ROIJMAN
[Spanish spelling for ROICHMAN] and they had several children. The
eldest was name Srul or Israel, the second Favl, and the youngest, a girl
was named Reidl. These three lived in Argentina.

I found two KEIZMAN families in the Zaklikow Yizkor Book Necrology and
suspect that one was probably my great grandfather:
Leibel Keizman and his Family. Perhaps Leibel was my grandfather Leon
and
Schlomo Keizman and his Family

I truly hope that these facts will help in finding any KLEIZMAN
descendants.

Searching MAISTER / MEISTER #poland #warsaw

We are posting this message on behalf of Fritz Ruef. The message was
received in German. This is the translation:

<< Peter MAISTER was born about 1850 in Bezau/Bregenzerwald and died here
in January 14, 1642. Peter is the earliest known ancestor of my mother
Franziska RUEF, nee MAISTER. We have only examined one direct line and
that was of the son, Jodocus MAISTER, circa 1611 to Dec. 31, 1675 in
Bezau.

I'd like to find out what became of the many other relatives. Peter
had 6 children, Jodocus 10, his son Franziscus 9, and his son Jodocum
had 5 children. This Jodocum emigrated to Obserstaufen/Allgaeu,
Germany. 6 generations later my mother coincidentally married Theodor
RUEF and moved back to Bezau.

Today there are no more MAISTERS ( also spelled MEISTER) of this line.
My mother and her two sisters were the last of the name. In approximately
1720 the name disappears >from the Bezau records. Apparently not only
Jodocum, but his siblings, moved away. But where?


I have also found references for the surname Maister in Eastern Europe.
The name appears in Poland, Ukraine, and also in the Baltic states.

The social and economic chaos of the time probably scattered them
across the world And this leads to my question. I am gathering as
mosaic stones every reference to the name MAISTER.

Hello,

My Grandfather ISAAC WOOLF was born in Sachotchin, Plock, Poland
on 14th. April 1870.
Unfortunately he died before I was born, and I would dearly love to find

I have his application for Naturalization which states that he was a =
Subject
of the Russian Empire. His father was named ABRAHAM WOOLF and his
mother was DORA WOOLF, both stated as being Subjects of the Russian
Empire.

Obviously, these names are there English names which make researching
a little more difficult. I have found on one of my Grandfather's =
documents
that his Jewish name was YTZRAK, not Isaac.

Does anyone live near the area of Plock or have any access to =
information
that may be of help to me please.
If so, could you email me personally.

Thank you

One of the important and critical ways of locating people who are
researching your family and/or community is to register with the JGFF.
However, I have noticed that hardly any members of the South Africa SIG or
those researching South African families have listed their communities in
South Africa. Cape Town has only 6 entries!!!!

What a waste of potential . . . I encourage all South African researchers to
register today!!! And, that includes me as well as I have neglected to do
this. I registered my Lithuanian and Ukrainian names and/or town, but not
South African.

Calitzdorp #southafrica

Saul W. Issroff <shaul@...>
 

If anyone can help please do so and copy me in . All I can find is that
there were 7 Jewish souls in Calitzdorp in 1976 Yearbook, but nil in the
1967 one .

Saul


Dear Saul
I received your name >from genealogist Anne Lehmkuhl as she thought that
perhaps you may be able to assist me with some information.
I live in a small town, Calitzdorp, in the Klein Karoo, South Africa (50km
from Oudtshoorn).
A long time ago, during the time of the ostrich heydays there was a thriving
Jewish community here in Calitzdorp, but today, they have all disappeared.
Some of the names who used to be here were Katz who owned a store.
Where would I go to pick up the history of the jewish community in
Calitzdorp? The information that I would like to have is:
What brought them to Calitzdorp and when
Apart >from the shops, what did they do (and even with the shops, what sort
of shops did they have)
Is there (was there) a jewish synagogue in Calitzdorp or would this
community have had to travel to Oudtshoorn or Ladismith (both 50km distant)
Why did they leave Calitzdorp, when and where did they go to

That sort of information.
The Calitzdorp museum is trying to gather together information on the people
that made the town thrive and there is nothing at the moment concerning
Jewish history. I would also like this information for publication in some
of the newsletters that I write, (I have taken the liberty of putting your
name on my mailing list so that you can see the sort of research that I am
doing)'

If you can help at all, it would be greatly appreciated, or if you could
please tell me where to go for such data that would be marvellous
thanking you in advance
