Searching Mozes Blumenberg from Tyczyn #poland

Leslie Weinberg <lbw50@...>
 

Mozes Blumenberg was born in Tyczyn, Poland in February of 1920. By
the late 30s, he had gotten to Israel, where he remained until at
least 1945. We do not know if he stayed there or left >from Russia,
or where he might have eventually settled. He is my grandfather's
nephew, and we are trying to find him. Despite the fact that he was
located, he never answered my grandfather's letter nor did he ever
send him a letter. He had at least two siblings, Rachela, born 1923,
and Zofia born 1925. There may have been other siblings, as well.
His parents were Hene (Eisen) Blumenberg and Jonas Blumenberg, both
born in 1890. He had an Uncle Mozes who was one of the over nine
hundred passengers who were taken >from Italy to Oswego NY in 1944.
He had a half aunt Ruchel in Paris and a half-uncle who lived in
Nagyvarad, Hungary (Oradea, Romania) whose name is unknown. His
grandparents were Schewa and Chaim Iram.

If anyone has any information on this man or family, please email
me privately.

Kupishok: For Eternal Memory - DVD Available #rabbinic

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

This is a one-time posting regarding the availability of a new DVD
entitled "Kupishok: For Eternal Memory" which is available through
the Brandeis University National Center for Jewish Film:

http://www.brandeis.edu/jewishfilm/Catalogue/films/Kupishok.html

The film which runs 60 minutes and costs $18 plus shipping and
handling, recreates the July 13, 2005 dedication of the Kupiskis Wall
of Memory Holocaust Memorial in Kupiskis, Lithuania. The Wall,
located in what was the former main synagogue of Kupiskis and now
public library, is the first memorial in Lithuania to list those
killed and their ages.

The participants in the film, who ranged >from age 8 to 87 and who came
from America, Australia, the United Kingdom, Israel, Lithuania, and
South Africa, shared a special and binding heritage in this small
shtetl whose Jewish population was destroyed in the summer of 1941.

The destruction of the community was truly made personal as those who
participated in the ceremonies, both Jewish and Lithuanian, saw the
vast array of over 824 names before them, just regular people, men,
women and children, of all ages, an entire group of people, gone
forever. One had only to go outside the former synagogue where the
Wall was located and look in the central square to see the stores and
homes where this community once was based, or go to Synagogue Street
and see where many lived, to know what a loss had occurred.

Hearing huge numbers in the millions of those killed in the Holocaust
numbs one as one participant stated, but actually seeing those numbers
made real with names and ages is horrifying, especially when they are
your family, friends and neighbors.

For those of you who have connections to Kupiskis and wish to learn
more about the trip there and the shtetl, please go to the Kupiskis
ShtetLink Site:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/kupiskis/memmain.htm

I hope you will take advantage of the availability of this film which
is dedicated to Norman Meyer, the trip's leader, who passed away
shortly after the completion of the trip.

Dear Fellow Genners

Like many other people, I have belonged to this digest for a number of
years and belong to a number of different groups and therefore receive
a great deal of genealogical e-mail.

I can read through many more posting much quicker when they are
paragraphed and the points that participants are trying to make then
stand out more easily.

Also, please leave a space between the last sentence of the posting and
the persons name, so that also stands out much clearer.

JG tips: Surname lists #general

Barbara Niederhoff <iamthewind@...>
 

Hello again, I know it's been a long time. Let's blame procrastination.
;)

Our tip today was inspired by some recent feedback on the lists of
surnames that come after a poster's signature. These lists are much
appreciated by other readers; one even told us that while he doesn't read
many messages, he always looks for surname lists. On the other hand, I
know someone who doesn't use a surname list because it results in too
many requests for information (she has some pretty common names). And
that's the proof of its usefulness -- these lists do catch people's
attention, so if you are looking for connections, make and save a simple
file to add to your posts. Your e-mail program may have a "signature
file" option that can be used this way.

JewishGen's basic guideline is that after your signature, you may add a
list up to *six lines long* of any surnames that you're searching for.
Include the surnames most important to your search right now. If you're
just starting out, there should be room for everything! Countries and
towns that they came >from are helpful, especially for common names. We
like the surnames to be in all capital letters so that they stand out for
the readers. All place names and other words should just be typed
normally, as they would appear in a sentence. This way, it will be clear
to everyone what the surnames are, and it makes scanning easier.

The six-line rule is purely arbitrary -- there had to be a limit, and
someone decided, way back when, that six lines would be it (by the way,
our lines are 65 characters long). The reasons for the limit are to save
bandwidth and make the digests easy to scan. If you have more than six
lines worth to share, consider splitting your lists into separate files
to rotate.

I'll include my own list below, for a change, but I warn you that I have
precious little to offer beyond what you read here! Someday I'll chip
through those brick walls.

Michael SANDMAN, Long Island, NY > Middletown, NY Asylum #usa

Bonnie Birns
 

Dear Genners,

Michael SANDMAN, born in Prussia around 1820, came to
the United States about 1850. He had a clothing store
in Glen Cove, Long Island, NY. (Town of Oyster Bay,
first in Queens County, then in Nassau County)

Abstracted >from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle:
10/14/1890 p.1 M. Sandman, having been pronounced
insane, will be taken to the state hospital at
Middletown.

12/21/1890 p.14 Michael Sandman, Glen Cove, died in
the asylum at Middleton, October last leaving estate
valued at $10,000. First wife had 3 children Morris,
Henry, Nancy Sandman. Second wife had 5 children, all
living. Left all real estate to widow, children from
first marriage contesting.

My questions are:
1) Where would Michael SANDMAN likely be buried?
Would he be left at the asylum in Middletown, or would
a wealthy man be brought home to be buried on Long Island?

2) Should there be court documents regarding the
contested will somewhere on Long Island? What would
be the most likely location to find them?

Thank you for your help.
