It is not clear at what point, and why, the surname changed to

R' A.D. WAHRMAN had a namesake great-grandson, who married Rachel

adopted the surname FISHMAN. Does anyone know how that came about
and of the existence of a Yehudah FISHMAN, possibly a son or

KOENIG Family from Lodz/Leczyca #lodz #poland

Edna Hoover
 

Looking for family of my grandfather: "Max" Sukher Mordkhe-Yissakhar
Mordekhai BAUMGARTEN. He often referred to grandparents >from the
KEINIG-KOENIG family in Leczyca near Lodz.

The family names listed in the Holocaust documents I received from
Daniel Dratwa in Belgium for Leizer Hirsh BAUMGARTEN, his younger
brother, show:

Parents: Menahem BAUMGARTEN & Liebe Braineh FRANKENTAL

Maternal grandparents: Shabse FRANKENTAL & Sarah HAMBURGER

Paternal grandparents: Judah Leib BAUMGARTEN & Anna Taube IZBUTSKY

Yedidiah Frankel's "Sefer Linshits" mentions (p. 200) that the
family of Getsel-Goetzl KEINIG-KOENIG, the Mohel, and his daughters
Priba, Fraide, Hindel, Liebe Braineh, Manya, Kriysa, and all their
families were killed in the Holocaust. Re'uven HAMBURGER, or
HAMBURGER, the grocer, and his family is also mentioned.

Do you have any information on these families >from the Lodz-Leczyca
area of Poland?
BAUMGARTEN
FRANKENTAL
HAMBURGER
IZBICSKI
KOENIG

Thanks for your help.

KEMPNER and others #lodz #poland

My family was >from Lodz. Before WWII my grandfather, Ignac KEMPNER
SZTYKGOLD(*), with his wife Elzbieta MARGULIES LIBRACH(*) left Lodz,
Poland, through Belgium with my very young father, Luis, to come to
Uruguay.

My grandfather was the son of Henrik KEMPNER WOLFOWICZ(*). He was
one of seven brothers and sisters: Josef, Antoni, Alexander, Lola,
Felijza, and Jadwiga.

Henrik died before WWII. His wife Bajla Tauba SZTYKGOLD and their
daughter Regina KEMPNER (who had married with Mr. ABERSZTAJN)
perished in the Lodz Ghetto. Another brother of Henrik's, Karol,
died murdered by Nazis in Lublin. No one knows what happened with
Josef, Antoni, Alexander, Lola, and Jadwiga and their families.
Felijza KEMPNER WOLFOWICZ(*) married Dr. Alexander LANDAU and went
to Zurich after WWII.

My grandfather's father, Henrik KEMPNER, had a printing company in
Lodz.

If anyone can give me any information I woulkd be very grateful.

I would like to know what happened with my family. I have pics of
the KEMPNER-WOLFOWICZ family before WWII. At this pic you can see:
Josef KEMPNER KEMPINSKA(*) married Paulina WOLFOWICZ and their sons:
Henrik, Alexander, Antoni, Karol, Lola, Felijsa and Jadwiga.

Re: English name for Ima #general

yonatan@...
 

Abba (= father) is a known Hebrew first name. Though I've never heard
"Ima" before.

Could it be "emma"?

Yoni Ben-Ari, Jerusalem/Efrat

I have secured Canadian Naturalization papers for my uncle. In it he
lists as one of his children "Ima." I know, in Hebrew ima means
mother.
Can anyone help solve this mystery?

Re: Isidor -Israel and Other Names and Variations #general

Maria <elena@...>
 

My grandfather came >from the Brest area of what is now Belarus around
1905. His name on the manifest was a variant of Israel. He was always
known as Isidor in the US. I hope this is some help.
Jeanne4<<<

Similar situation with my grandfather's father, who has been noted on
various documents as Isidor(e), Israel, Joseph, and, on two census reports
as well as a directory entry or two, as Philip Isidor as opposed to Isidor
Philip. The Hebrew inscription on his tombstone, however, names him
Yitzak (no direct variation of which, oddly enough, have I yet found him
using).

My grandmother's father was Mendel, Morris and Mike (though my mother
remembers everyone calling him "Pops"). On his tombstone, he is Menachem
Mendel. Both wives show more constancy in naming, Isidor's wife being
always Mary (though I know she was born Miriam, she apparently never used
it once leaving Poland); Morris' wife was always Sarah in the US. Their
eldest daughter, though, was Broche, Beatrice and Becky (leading my poor
sister to be able admit that her middle name is Rebecca, in remembrance of
great Aunt Broche).

Morris had a sister, Pauline, who was also known as Pearl, and her husban,
Benjamin, was also Bernard. Their son, Hyman, was also Herman.

My relative of mine was buried in NYC between 1900-1912 at Bay Side
Cemetery, according to family letters.

I cannot find any listings for Bay Side. I tried looking in the NYC
directory of 1910 as well. Would anyone know where Bay Side is located in
New York City?
