Searching for Shapiro family from Vinnitza #ukraine

Monroe Ginsburg <monroeg@...>
 

Hi genners,

This is an update request for information on the SHAPIRO family. The
family name may have been originally pronounced SHAPIRA, SHAPIFKA OR
SHAPELFKA. David and Rivka (Rebecca) SHAPIRO were originally >from
Chmielnik, then moved to Vinnitsa in the Ukraine. Their daughter Chaike
(Ida) immigrated to Chicago about 1913 and married Isaac Andelman. David
and Rivka followed Chaike to Chicago in the 1930’s. The children of
David and Rivka were: Chaike, Pinchas, Chayim, and Fredolph. Other
relatives that may be their children or other immediate family members
were: Simcha, Frau Sura, Gaviant, Eheehu, and Ephraim. Chaike visited
her family in the Ukraine in the 1970’s, but no record of the address or
town she traveled to presently exists. One of Chaike’s siblings lived in
Israel and another sibling may have been a physician. I would appreciate
any information on getting in touch with this family. Thanks.

Searching decedents of Jacob TRAUM #general

ellen moshenberg
 

I am searching for decedents of Jacob TRAUM, professor emeritus from
the University of CA at Davis and who was my grandmother's uncle. He
was born in 1882 in what was then Austria (probably today Galacia,
Poland) and came to NYC as a child. He graduated >from Cornell in 1905.
He was married to Minnie and had 2 sons Paul >from Berkeley and Aaron
of Silver Spring, MD. He retired in 1958 and died in 1966. My father
met with him in 1945 after returning >from Japan.

Since my grandmother's maiden name was RAVITZ, I assume he must have
been her maternal uncle.

FYI, the University of California has an wonderful archive of
obituaries for it faculty. This is a wonderful source of information
and where I found most of the above.

Thanks, regards and shalom,

"US Newspaper death notifications?" #general

Sean Holman <sah2@...>
 

Dear Genners

I was wondering whether there is a process that US residents must follow
regarding posting death notices in newspapers or in some other form of
public notice. In Australia all deaths and funeral notices must be
published in a major newspaper. Does a similar requirement exist in the
US? I am searching for death notices of family in New York during
1945-1955 and California during 1969-1977. It would be good to know if
there is some place that notices must be publicised as I am not sure of
the dates. Perhaps there is an archive of these notices?

Any help would be much appreciated.

I am researching my family. My Grandfather-in -law was called Jacob KLAR. I
have spent hour upon hour searching the census,BMD without a hit. Then I
registered with Jewishgen. The Only peice of information I had was they were
Russian orthodox jews. I have now got 5 members of the Klar family, 4 of
which are buried in the Stockton Hebrew Congregation. Do you have any ideas
for me to find out where they originated from/born. If I travelled to
stockton would the burial record have further information for me. Thanks
