Gubernia: Keletskoy (Krenetc)
Uyezd: Sipusheny? Onpushsky? Olpushena?
City: Oipusha? Onpusha? Olpusha?

I've concluded that it was the City of Olkusz in Opulski Uyezd and Kielce
Gubernia.

Does anyone have any other suggestions or would you come to the same
conclusion?

As usual, I thank you very much in advance for your help.

Have a lovely week.
Appears to be correct, Linda.

There is a bit of a play with the Russian grammar.
Town Olkusz, Uyezd Olkusz, Kielce Guberniya.

BTW, Olkusz was a district (powiat) town and was located also within Kielce
Province (Wojewodztwo) during independent Poland interwar period.

How do I contact the Submitter of Pages of Testomy? #general

Julian Peerutin <jushilli@...>
 

Shalom

I saw a page of testomy submitted to the Yad Vashem Holocaust database in
1956. Is there any way of knowing how to contact the submitter?
The Pages of Testomy in question were submitted by Batsheva Shulman for
Moshe Cindelis, Faiga Cindeliene, Shlomo Cindelis, Judit Cindel and Chaim
Cindelis.
Does anyone know of Baysheva Shulman and how to contact her?

Thanks

Hello All

I'm trying to find the correct spelling and exact location for a pre-war
shul that my grandfather belonged to in Lodz, Poland.

When I heard the name, it sounded like Yar Ochinski and was located on
Pomorska Street. If anyone knows the shul's correct name, spelling and
address, please email me privately. Or if you have research advice or
general information the rest of the group can use, please post for all.

Additional information such the shul's history, if photos survived or are
available online, if any archives survived and other details are greatly
appreciated.

JGSBroward Florida Reschedules Ron Arons #general

kasakaplan@...
 

Hurricane Wilma forced us to cancel our October 23rd program featuring Ron
Arons.

We've got our power back, our phones are working again, we're cleaning up the
mess, and we have rescheduled his talk to:

Sunday, January 29th at 2:00 PM
Soref JCC, 6501 West Sunrise Blvd.
at 65 Avenue between University Drive and the Florida Turnpike
Plantation Florida.

There is plenty of free parking on the 16-acre campus. We are thrilled that
we have been able to reschedule this much anticipated event.

Our speaker Ron Arons is a seasoned genealogist who has given presentations
locally and abroad, including past International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies annual conferences. He will speak about Bugsy Siegel and
Meyer Lansky - the Men Behind the famous Flamingo Hotel, and their amazing lives.
The talk will not only provide a terrific story, but also focus on how and
where one can find non-traditional documents. Of special local interest, Meyer
Lansky, born Maier Suchowljansky, a Jew >from Grodno, once lived in Miami Beach
and later helped put Las Vegas on the map.

We just wanted to let everyone who lives in Florida or is planning to visit
Florida to mark the calendars now so that you will not miss this exciting and
informative lecture.

All are welcome, refreshments will be served; admission is free. For
additional information or inquiries, please check our website at

LIPOWICZ (from Sokoly, Poland?) #rabbinic

Shelly Crane
 

Dear RavSiggers,

I am new to this SIG and have a question to help me with research on
my great grandfather Yossel LIPOWICZ ben Abram. The family has
always spoken about him being orphaned as a young child. We don't
know where he was born, but am beginning to think it was around the
area of Sokoly in Poland. He had several brothers and sisters and
one was a rabbi who died relatively young.

After losing his parents, Yossel "lived off the land," as my
grandfather told us and made his way to a Yeshiva, which apparently
was well known in the area.

He married Nechama MILEWICZ bat Moszk LIPSYC z Lejbka and finally
settled in Grajewo, in the Lomza gub of Poland. I have not heard of
a Yeshiva in Grajewo, and wondered if in fact, the town he went to
was Lomza.

I would like to learn more about the Yeshiva's in the Lomza region
and if there is a way to research students.

Thank you very much.
