Dear Folks,

Searching for descendants of Joseph & Rose SABATELLI, who are listed in
the 1920 census as living on Audubon St, in Manhattan. Rose (maiden name
unknown) was Jewish, >from "Russia," born circa 1884. My gaunt Sarah
WOLINSKY came off the boat >from Haifa in 1921, and listed Rose as her
niece, and Rose picked her up at the port.

Survivor Lists #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I am interested in the World Jewish Congress's publication "Surviving Jews
in Jugoslavia as of June 1945." Has anyone seen this? Does it list any
survivors >from Poland?

Dan

P.S. In case my question sounds strange, allow me to explain: The World
Jewish Congress's "Survivor" books often have far more than their titles
might suggest. For example, "Surviving Jews in Czestochowa, about 1945"
lists many persons living away >from Czestochowa after the war, including
this many >from these 8 towns:
170 Warszawa
101 Lodz
50 Radomsko
33 Krzepice
33 Krakow
30 Stopnica
28 Klobuck
23 Szydlowiec

"List of Survivors: Stockholm, 1946" lists persons >from various cities in
Poland, including these cities:
69 Lodz
17 Radom
15 Kielce
10 Sosnowiec
10 Warszawa

"Surviving Jews in Lublin" remarkably lists more persons >from Warsaw and
Lodz than >from Lublin--plus persons >from more than 150 other towns. And
"Surviving Jews in Warsaw as of June 5th, 1945" includes over 200 persons
from Lwow, Wilno, Czestochowa, Lodz, and Krakow.

Where is Skawtian? #general

Jenny Schwartzberg
 

Dear Genners

I just found on a passenger manifest for two relatives, >from Feb.
1907, that they were born in Skawtian, Russia. The manifest is quite
clear. I never heard of Skawtian and I have no other clues for this
distant branch of my extended family. I checked ShtetlSeeker and it came
up with Skovyatin in the Ukraine at 48 44 26 02. This appears to be in
the Ternopil uzed.
My question is if anyone remembers any other Skawtian or agrees
that it is indeed Skovyatin. I'd also like to know for sure what uzed and
gubernia Skovyatin was in. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Yours cordially,
Jenny Schwartzberg

Slonim: "The Great Fire" #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Folks,

One of my relatives (Menachem-Mendel "Max" EPSTEIN) was said to have been
born in Slonim on the day of "The Great Fire," in 1862.

I know there were a number of fires set on Jewish property during those
times, but with the appellation "great" I wonder if it was a fire that
consumed, say, large sections of the city. Does anyone know anything about
this?

Best,
Steve Orlen

rlberliner@...
 

We are still searching for ancestor Chaim JACOBS. We have searched for
Hyman JACOBS which is the logical given name. We would appreciate any and
all given names that may have been used when the Hebrew name is Chaim.

The other information, previously posted, are the names of his children,
according to the gravestones showing "ben Chaim". I am repeating those
names below.

Abraham "Abe", married Leah Solomon.
Joseph married Fannie
Betty (Bessie)Jacobs Diamondstein,
Harry married Anna
Benjamin married Katie
Isaac
Sophia
Leah Jacobs Lang

Thank you once more for the help >from our Jewishgen family.

Date: Wed, 28 May 2003 21:15:01 -0400 (EDT)
X-Message-Number: 14

I'm a little late with this subject. My mother had 5 children, all born
at home in Brooklyn, NY. Two of us had no birth certificates, and I
remember hearing that the attending physician, the same for all five
births, had some professional difficulties and that he didn't record the
births. My brother and I eventually had birth certificates, based on
information acquired >from people who answered questions about their
remembrances of dates and places of our births. Does anyone else
remember such a situation?
My grandmother, born in NYC, did not have her birth recorded at the time
- 1889. In 1949 she requested and received a birth certificate based on
the statements contained in the 1900 Federal census as to her birth and
the death certificate of her mother.

ROSENBERG-ROSS #general

Irene Levita <mimosa@...>
 

Dear all,

In the years, 1936 or 1937, two cousins of mine left Antwerp, Belgium, to
go to what was then Palestine.

I have lost total contact with them. They may not be alive anymore, but
they probably married and had children. Perhaps someone in Israel knows
of them and if so, would love to be in contact with them.

Their names were Monnie and Jopie (Joseph) Rosenberg. Jopie was a fine
commercial artist, and I heard that he worked for an Israeli newspaper,
I do not know which one it was, but he worked under the name of Ross.
They may even have changed their name Rosenberg, to a hebrew name. If any
of this sounds familiar and someone has heard about them or knows about
them, especially since he worked for the newspaper, I would love to hear.

"Shimme-heshe" - Given name? Nickname? #romania

Michelle Frager <lulu_brooks@...>
 

Dear List:

Has anyone ever heard this 'appellation'?

There was someone in our family when I was a kid who it seems to me
was called something like "Shimme-heshe". I'm spelling it that way
as I've no idea if it was one word or two. Or even if it was a name
or a label, like "Soltzeh-mit-der-beyner!" (Solly to the bone!)

The family was >from Belarus, Ukraine, Bessarabia but I don't recall
who this was, so can't limit the geography.

FYI - I tried the GNDB with several spellings but couldn't find a
match.

Thanks for any help.
