I have the 1765 Kovna and Viljiampole/Slobodka Censuses and would be happy
to contribute copies to this project.

Do you also have census materials for Pasval and Birzh?

Thanks,

SKLAR SCLAR family Worcester Mass #belarus

Vivian Levensohn <vivian@...>
 

Dear Genners,

After receiving no responses to my posting on the Family Finder, I am
appealing to the discussion groups about my SCLAR SKLAR family from
Worcester, Massachusetts. Perhaps you know this family – >from Temple,
from growing up with one of them, professionally - and could put them in
touch with me.

In the early 1900’s the family seemed to use the names SCLAR and SKLAR
interchangeably; I think they settled on “SCLAR,” so I’ll use that name
here.

Morris SCLAR was born about 1886 in the Vilnius area of Lithuania,
probably Moletai. He was a tailor. He arrived in the US in about 1907.
By 1910 he was living in Worcester, with his wife, Ida.

Their nine children, with approximate birth dates, were:

--- Harry 1909
--- Bessie 1911
--- Benjamin 1913 (died at age 20)
--- Annie 1914
--- Jennie 1916
--- Hyman 1918
--- Fannie 1919
--- Abraham 1921
--- Esther 1923

Between 1910 and 1930, at least, the family lived at 16 Brown Street in
Worcester.

My relationship to this family: Morris was the older brother of my
grandfather, Alex SKLAROFF. Alex (who may have been also known as
Nathan), also a tailor, came to the US in 1914 and went to live with
Morris and his family.

Some sort of falling out occurred. Alex left, settled in Cincinnati, and,
as far as I know, never had any further contact with his brother, Morris.

Morris had another brother, Abraham SKLAR, who also first came to
Worcester but, by 1920, was living in Philadelphia. Abe SKLAR was a
furrier with two daughters, Sylvia (who changed her name to Vivien) and
Esther. I also do not know what became of this family; the last contact I
know of between them and my branch of the family was in the 1950’s.

Jewish Hospital and Orphan Asylum Schools #general

Hello,

I'm trying to find any and all information on a Morris PICHOLS, born in Cape
Colony (South Africa), age 7, and living at the Jew's (Jewish) Hospital and
Orphan Asylum Schools, according to the 1901 England and Wales Census.

I am also interested in learning if this school still exist? In 1901, it's
location was Knights Mill Road, West Norwood S.K., in the civil Parish of
Lambeth, ecclesiastical Parish of St. Luke, borough of Lambeth and ward of
Norwood. If it does, could someone supply me with a current name and address?
If it doesn't, can someone tell me where I might find it's records and the
address, so I might find more out about this boy?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Chief Rabbi #general

Jerome Seligsohn <jselig1315@...>
 

I have noted in many messages the title "Chief Rabbi".
This nomination puzzles me. Which body select a Chief
Rabbi ? Does the state appoint such a person in order
to deal with or control the Jewish community? What are
the powers of a Chief Rabbi ? How can his rulings be
appealed ? How can competing Jewish religious groups
agree on a spokesman of that designation ?
Because one finds this designation so frequently on
this message board it calls for some light to be shed
on this.

Dear Genners,
I have 'sorted' this list into Street/House order to try and establish who was
living at the address where my ancestors lived at and have found that some
addresses have up to 20 voters registered at that place.
Does anybody know if there were apartment blocks in Radomsko at that time?
Or is there another explanation?

ALso. does anybody know if there was a 'Jewish Section' of Radomsko as the list
seems to suggest that all the voters lived in a few streets and in successive
houses.

Thanking you in anticipation
