Re: The Kohen sign- Thank you #general

Marx, Jonathan Schreiner <John@...>
 

Dear Genners:

Thanks for the replies. I would like to hear of more family names that are
established Kohenim. I think that would be vital for the database and for
any search of the forum archives. >from the replies I got, I see all were
happy to clarify how some who were Kohens got other names and how some who
weren't got the Kohen names. Such stories are incredibly relevent to distant
relatives piercing together their heritage.

I see only one misunderstood. We don't need to comment along those lines
since it will be off genealogy.

Cheers,

May 2004 Visit to Bihor County Romania-Part I #romania

FbandJd@...
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

Thank you to all of the JewishGen members who helped make our first visit to
Hungary and Romania a success.

After three weeks of touring Hungary my husband and I took the Intercity Train
from the Keleti Train Station leaving Budapest and arriving in Debrecen.
It is an express train, took only 2 hours and 40 minutes and we were able to have
reserved seats. I would suggest buying the tickets at the train station and not in
the US because it's 3x cheaper in Hungary.

At the Debrecen train station we were met by our Romanian guide and driver who
then drove across the border to Bihor County, Romania [formerly Bihar, Hungary].
There is a one hour time change >from Hungary to Romania--one hour greater in
Romania. This should be taken into consideration if someone >from Romania is
meeting you in Hungary [ or the other way around].

After several years of research it was determined that the entire maternal side
of my family lived in Bihar County >from about 1810 to 1910. Before that they lived
in NagyKaroly/Carei and Tasnad. Our planned project was to visit the villages and
cemeteries where my grandparents and great-grandparents were born.

Part II I will discuss the cemeteries in Ermihalyfalva/Valea lui Mihai,
Kobolkut/Cubulcut, Szalard/Salard,Bihar/Biharia and the orthodox cemeteries in
Nagyvarad/Oradea. We have complete digital pictures of all of the stones in the
small Jewish cemeteries of Cubulcut, Salard and Biharia and I have lists of names
that were not written in Hebrew.If anyone is interested I will be happy to answer
any questions you might have.

August meeting of the JGS of Bergen County, New Jersey #general

Edward Rosenbaum <erosenbaum@...>
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Bergen County will be having its next
meeting on Sunday, August 8th. We will be discussing "Hitting a Brick
Wall", a question and answer session. Afterward, we will watch the
movie "The Sweetest Sound". The main meeting starts at 2PM and is held
at the JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly. The JCC of the Palisades is
located at 401 East Clinton Avenue in Tenafly. Their phone number is
201-569-7900.

"The Sweest Sound": Award-winning independent filmmaker Alan Berliner
(Intimate Stranger, The Family Album) takes a humorous and touching look
at the way that names shape identity. Tracking the lives of several
other men who share his name--including a celebrity photographer, an
Ohio lawyer, and a Seattle social worker--Berliner deftly explores the
relationship between one's moniker and the way it shapes identity. In
addition, the filmmaker touches upon the history of names, stopping at
Ellis Island for some fascinating information.

There will be no 12:30 schmooze session this month.

If you need directions, go to our homepage at
http://erosenbaum.netfirms.com/jgsbc/

GORDON-FRIEDMAN-FRIEDSON family photos (also GREENBERG and LEWIS) #lithuania

Paul Gordon <flash@...>
 

I've posted a number of old family photos on my web site, and I'm asking for
help in identifying some of the people in them.

One set has members of my grandfather's GORDON-FRIEDMAN-FRIEDSON family.
Most of the photos were taken in New York >from the 1920s-1950s. The
pictures belonged to my grandparents Harry and Betty GORDON, who lived in
the Bronx during that time.

Harry's father was Louis (Elisha) GORDON(OVICH), the son of Bendet
GORDON(OVICH) and Sarah FRIEDSON. Louis was born in the 1870s in Soll in
Vilna Gubernia; this is modern-day Soly, Belarus. Louis had two brothers in
New York: Henry and Sam.

Harry's mother was Anna/Alta (Chava Leah) FRIEDMAN, daughter of Leib
FRIEDMAN. I think that Anna was born in the 1870s in Srednik, near Kovno,
and had FRIEDMAN and FRIEDSON relatives >from the nearby town of Jonava.

Louis and Anna had a number of relatives in New York whose connection to the
family I haven't been able to figure out. Some of them may be in these
photos. Such relatives include:

Herman J. LEWIS (born in Russia in 1880s, son of Abraham) and his wife Sarah
GREENBERG (born in Russia in 1890s, daughter of Samuel and Fannie). Herman
and Sarah had three children who were born >from 1917-1926: Albert (a
rabbi), David, and Florence.

Edward GREENBERG (born in NYC in 1890s, son of Samuel and Jenny) and his
wife Bess. Edward and Bess's children were Beverly and Bobby. Edward's
siblings were Sidney, Jacob, Henry, Irving, and Leon.

Brothers Edward, Samuel, and Louis FRIEDMAN, all born in Jonava in the
1860s-1870s. They were the children of Abram FRIEDMAN (aka FRIEDSON) and
Zwia GINZBERG.

Morris GREENBERG (born in Russia in the 1870s-1880s, son of David and Dora)
and his wife Blanche. Their children Miriam (GOODFRIEND), Alfred, and
Charles (GREEN) were all born between 1917-1926.

Please take a look at these photos at www.zzapp.org/flash/family/gordon. If

From Plunge to Kherson 1847 #lithuania

Elaine Bush <erbush@...>
 

Hello all,

According to the revision lists, one of my ancestors moved >from Plunge
to Kherson in 1847 (along with many others >from Plunge). I have
checked the Ukraine Farming Colonies information on the Ukraine
(Kherson) SIG list and have come up empty-- Perhaps I have not
searched deep enough, but I find no reference to Plunge with regards to
migration patterns although there is a lot of more general information
that I have found useful as a guide. Has anyone done research in
this area? Any hints? Thanks--

Sarah, Nisan, and Kadesh remained in Grodno.

Sam's siblings in America were Anna FINKEL, Esther FALLIS, Fanny WALDMAN,

SS officer saving Jews in Ostrava, CZ? #general

Michael Gordy
 

I write with an unusual story of surviving the Holocaust. I'm
hoping that someone might be able to guide me on filling in the
missing pieces.

My grandfather was born in Ostrava, Czech Republic (Mahrisch-Ostrau in
German) in 1908. He had a childhood friend by the surname Muller
(umlaut over the u) who came >from a poor German-Czech family.
Muller would come to my grandfather's house to eat lunch a couple of
times each week, and otherwise was lucky to get much lunch at all.
When they were young teens, Muller ran away >from home and wasn't
heard >from again.

Shift ahead to 1939. Hitler has swept through Czechoslovakia and
Jews are prohibited >from exiting the country without an exit visa.
Within days, my grandfather's father meets Muller on the street
to find that Muller was the SS officer in charge of Ostrava. Muller
told him to send his son (my grandfather) to his office. My
grandfather did as instructed. He was not permitted to see Muller,
but his passport was stamped with an exit visa. Thus he made his
way out...

After the war, my grandfather once heard that Muller was shot by
the SS for helping Jews to escape. My grandfather passed away
10 years ago, and I don't know the reliability of this information.

Does anyone have a similar story of leaving Ostrava or other
encounter with this SS officer? Any suggestions for sources at
the Holocaust Museum (I live near Washington DC) or elsewhere that
could confirm the story and fill in details?
