Schelly Dardashti <dardasht@...>
 

I am posting this request >from fellow Zaverezhye (Belarus) descendant Sophia
Cohen-Shapiro of the Netherlands and her mother Chene ETINGON
(Israel-Netherlands), not yet subscribed to JewishGen discussion groups.

Chene was born in 1923 in Zaverezhye (Z), across a narrow dirt road from
Vorotinschtina (V), very close to Mogilev (M), Belarus. Both Z and V were
very small, descendants hard to find.

They are looking for information on both possible survivors and other
descendants. Already searched: Family Finder, Hamburg, Ellis Island, Belarus
lists. Yad Vashem is being consulted, and Sophia has just written to the
Holocaust Survivors Registry.

They are looking for descendants of ETINGON (Levite), ROCHLIN, BEDINERMAN
with roots in Z, V and M, Bobruisk, UK, Germany and elsewhere, and also for
information on possible survivors as described below.

Aron ETINGON (Levite) lived in Zaverezhye, all 5 children born there to wife
Sonia (Sheindl). Given names of 4 daughters unknown.
(1) Daughter ? m. BEDINERMAN in Mogilev, son Alter BEDINERMAN m. Golde
Beile; children probably survived.

Minsk, sewing factory "Krupskoy." Believed taken to Minsk Ghetto, but name
not on official lists. Officially missing.
3. Hinda (Galia) ETINGON, b. 1920, veterinarian,
working Voroshlovograd, Voroshilovogradskoi Oblasti, Sovchoz "Chemuchina."
Evacuated Rostov-on-Don. Possibly false passport, Russian name, possibly to
Germany. Officially missing.
4 Chena ETINGON, b. 1923, m. Gezel SHAPIRO (d.
Israel) in Baku. (He was born Salopkovtsi, Kamenetsk Podolsk, UKR; father
Naftali, mother Shifra MANDEL, rabbi's daughter). Lives Netherlands and

2. Boris SHAPIRO, Netherlands
5. Aron ETINGON, b. 1927, murdered 1940.

Note on ROCHLIN family, Mogilev:
Berl ETINGON's second wife Chaya was one of 4 daughters of Dr. Meir (Meer)
Leib ROCHLIN, who owned or worked in the Jewish Hospital in Mogilev,
surrounded by apple tree orchard, used to finance hospital. Died young,
leaving 3 daughters, pregnant wife. Home burned in pogrom, everything lost.
Mother soon died, 4 daughters placed in orphanage arranged by Mogilev
ROCHLIN relatives.
Chaya's sisters:
(1) Chena ROCHLIN m. ?, went to Poland; had children, died
before WWII.
(2) Dvora ROCHLIN m. ?, lived Bobruisk; died during WWII; no
children.
(3) Tzila ROCHLIN m. Lipa KAGANOV, lived Minsk, 3 children
(Fanja, Lyova, Ilya). 1941 family evacuated to Kuibishev/Samara with niece
Chena ETINGON above, who was studying in Minsk. All survived.

---
All Genners who might find a familiar connection with ETINGON or ROCHLIN
(particularly as a maiden name of a grandmother or great-grandmother in the
UK or elsewhere) or BEDINERMAN may contact me.

With best wishes, as always, to a wonderful group of dedicated people around
the world.

Samuel & Samson FINKELSTEIN #general

Paul Silverstone
 

Among the children of my grandfather's uncle were two brothers, Samuel
and Samson FINKELSTEIN. The family came >from Shumsk in Volhynia to
Winnipeg in the 1880-90s.

My understanding of this family has been:

Samuel B. Finkelstein (son of Chaim) was born in 1873 and died in
Vancouver BC in 1971. His first wife was Lena Titlebaum; his second
wife was Manya Averbach. His children by his first wife were Herbert
and Betsy.

R. Samson Finkelstein (son of Chaim) was born in 1876. His wife was
Maude Squarebrigges. They had two children Zona and a son.

When their father Chaim died in 1920, the probate case described them as:

son R.Samson Finkelstein, of Winnipeg, cattle dealer, in La Jolla,
c/o Titlebaum
son Samuel B. Finkelstein of Victoria (later Stein) later in Seattle
My problem now is that I just discovered in the 1920 US census the
following:

Living in Seattle,
Samuel Stein age 44, his wife Sarah age 42 and
daughter Zona age 8 and son Lloyd age 4. Samuel was born in Poland
arrived in the US in 1896, his wife in 1915; the children were born in
Canada.

I am certain this is one of the two brothers but the children don't
match. Perhaps my informant mixed up the children.

Anyway is anyone familiar with this family?
Zona Finkelstein is an unusual name.

Mormon Tapes vs. Archives #general

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

Hello All.

I have what is probably a naive question. I've recently been looking at some
microfilms that I ordered that are vital records >from Europe - in my
particular case they are in Hungary and Slovakia.

For a given town the Mormon library might have, for example, births from
1855 to 1885 and marriages >from 1888 until 1904.

Does this mean that vital records outside of those date ranges are not
available? Or does this mean that those are merely the records that the
Mormons obtained and if I were to contact the archives directly, there would
be many other vital records not on the films?

Thanks for the help.

I am interested in learning if anyone knows of an Osias or Oscar OXENBERG
who lived at Debry 31 and was reported as being killed in the Holocaust on a
unpaid water bill listing.

I would like to determine if he is one of my OXENBERG relatives that went
missing during the War. Many of his family came to Manchester, England, in
the late 1800's, where he visited them just before he disappeared.

Devastation at Semihaly #general

gen@...
 

Dear JGenners,

Last week one of the representatives of our Heritage Foundation for
Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries (a.k.a. HFPJC), a volunteer, non-profit
organization dedicated to the restoration of neglected cemeteries throughout
Eastern Europe, reported some very disturbing news, and I thought I'd share
it with you. It seems that this time, the Semihaly (Budszentmihaly)
cemetery, was the victim of utter ruination and neglect.

On a routine trip to supervise our reconstruction efforts in several
Hungarian cemeteries, the representative utilized the opportunity to visit
the Semihaly cemetery and check up on the situation there. Arriving at the
cemetery, he was appalled to see the grounds devastated beyond recognition.
Severed body parts of some of the interred kedoshim lay strewn among the ruins
Shocked and horrified, he immediately abandoned his agenda for the day and
started gathering earth >from neighboring fields, attempting to cover as much
of the defiled area as possible with his bare hands. After many long hours
and much hard work, he finally completed this formidable task, and all the
disinterred parts were covered.

We at the HFPJC immediately commenced the restoration process by attempting
to obtain the original survey and map >from the government authorities, who
are being very helpful and accommodating. Eventually, after the restoration
is completed satisfactorily, photos of the individual tombstones will be
available

As is customary prior to reconstruction in every cemetery, the Rabbinical
authorities affiliated with our organization, the Asra Kadisha of Israel and
the Committee of Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries in London, were informed
of the situation and we will be in close contact along the entire process.

It has not been determined yet what was responsible for this unfortunate
turn of events. A committee of Semihaly descendants is currently being
formed.

Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay
Jewish Genealogy Seminar
Sunday, February 8, 2004

"2004 Guide to Jewish Genealogy: A Foundation for Beginners and an
Update for Experienced Researchers"

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay will offer a two part seminar
entitled: "The JGSTB 2004 Guide to Jewish Genealogy: A Foundation for
Beginners and an Update for Experienced Researchers" on February 8 (Part 1)
and March 14, 2004 (Part 2) at 2:00 PM at Gulf Coast Jewish Family Services,
14041 Icot Blvd., Clearwater, Florida. Registration will be at 1:30 PM
February 8th. The presentation will enable beginners to discover their
family history. The past few years have seen substantial changes in the
methods and sources of genealogy research, so the course will include
extensive updated material for the experienced researcher. The course will
focus on developing the proper techniques, methods, and short cuts
(emphasizing local resources) to find your ancestor's records to connect you
with your ancestors in the old country.

Dr. Emil H. Isaacson will lead the seminar. Professor Isaacson has 21
years experience in genealogy and has researched his ancestral roots back
seven generations to the late 1700's in Europe. He will share his
successful and sometimes unsuccessful techniques.

The course is free to current paid up members of the Jewish Genealogical
Society of Tampa Bay. A one-year family membership is included in the $25
course fee for non-members. A $7.00 fee will be charged per book to defray
the cost of printing. Membership in the Jewish Genealogical Society of
Tampa Bay is $25 per family. Members of other Florida Jewish Genealogical
Societies are welcome and will be charged a course fee of $13 (unless they
decide to become a member of JGS - TB).

Anyone interested in learning how to do Jewish genealogy research is invited
to attend. Early, per-registration is recommended so that sufficient copies
of the printed book and handouts will be on hand. E-mail your intentions to
JGSTampaBay@yahoo.com (please do not hit the reply button to this notice)
or call (727) 842-5789

The Jewish Genealogical Society's library and research resources, including
both printed materials and computer access, along with guided assistance and
information exchange >from experienced researchers will be available to
participants at the meeting. Our library is growing and is quickly becoming
one of the most important reasons to come to the meetings. Many of the
items in the library are impossible to find in the local libraries, and if
they are reference only elsewhere, they can not be gotten through
inter-library loans.

"2004 Guide to Jewish Genealogy: A Foundation for Beginners and an
Update for Experienced Researchers"

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay will offer a two part seminar
entitled: "The JGSTB 2004 Guide to Jewish Genealogy: A Foundation for
Beginners and an Update for Experienced Researchers" on February 8 (Part 1)
and March 14, 2004 (Part 2) at 2:00 PM at Gulf Coast Jewish Family Services,
14041 Icot Blvd., Clearwater, Florida. Registration will be at 1:30 PM
February 8th. The presentation will enable beginners to discover their
family history. The past few years have seen substantial changes in the
methods and sources of genealogy research, so the course will include
extensive updated material for the experienced researcher. The course will
focus on developing the proper techniques, methods, and short cuts
(emphasizing local resources) to find your ancestor's records to connect you
with your ancestors in the old country.

Dr. Emil H. Isaacson will lead the seminar. Professor Isaacson has 21
years experience in genealogy and has researched his ancestral roots back
seven generations to the late 1700's in Europe. He will share his
successful and sometimes unsuccessful techniques.

The course is free to current paid up members of the Jewish Genealogical
Society of Tampa Bay. A one-year family membership is included in the $25
course fee for non-members. A $7.00 fee will be charged per book to defray
the cost of printing. Membership in the Jewish Genealogical Society of
Tampa Bay is $25 per family. Members of other Florida Jewish Genealogical
Societies are welcome and will be charged a course fee of $13 (unless they
decide to become a member of JGS - TB).

Anyone interested in learning how to do Jewish genealogy research is invited
to attend. Early, per-registration is recommended so that sufficient copies
of the printed book and handouts will be on hand. E-mail your intentions to

or call (727) 842-5789

The Jewish Genealogical Society's library and research resources, including
both printed materials and computer access, along with guided assistance and
information exchange >from experienced researchers will be available to
participants at the meeting. Our library is growing and is quickly becoming
one of the most important reasons to come to the meetings. Many of the
items in the library are impossible to find in the local libraries, and if
they are reference only elsewhere, they can not be gotten through
inter-library loans.

Chassidic Rabbis of Mishkoltz and Pinsk Karlin #rabbinic

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

I just recently recieved an invitation to the wedding of a son of a
distant cousin of mine, and they note that the father of the chatan,
my cousin's husband, is HaRav Shalom Berger "of Mishkoltz" and the
father of the Kalah is a Rabbi Shmuel David Hacohen ROSENFELD, son
of the Admo"r of Pinsk Karlin.

I heard once that there are two chassidic groups of Karlin; one
Karlin/Stolin and another Karlin? Do I take it that this ROSENFELD
is a descendant of the "other" Karlin dynasty?

Secondly, what is the meaning of "of Mishkoltz"? Is (was) there a
chassidut or a subgroup with this name?

Thanks and shabbat shalom,

Yoni Ben-Ari, Efrat, Jerusalem
