As far as I recall, Sir Herbert wrote a book about his experience in
Palestine. She would be mentioned there, I guess.

You can write to the Jewish Agency, or the Zionist Archives, both in

be able to get information >from closer at home in South Africa, >from a local

Jews of Irkuts (Siberia) #general

Richard Gilbert
 

Tradition has it that my great great garndfather Avraham Chaim GINSBERG was
sent to Irkuts (Siberia) >from Minsk (Belarus). We have a photograph taken
of him in Irkuts in about 1903/1904. He must have died by July 1907 as my
grandfather was named after him and he was born then. Does anyone know how
I can follow up that information to find out when he died and if possible
where he is buried?

Dear Cousins,

On a page of testimony, the submitter's relationship was given, in
Polish, as "wnuczka." Can someone tell me what it means.

Only Jewish Lawyer in Warsaw? Sir Herbert SAMUEL's secretary? #general

Lehava Falkson
 

Hi,

Recent conversation with an older family member yielded two pieces of
information which were unknown to me, and I have not been able so far to
find any further information. Can anyone help?

According to this relative:

A. My great-grandmother's brother was the only Jewish lawyer in Warsaw at
the time. My great-grandmother's maiden name was Sochaczewski, and we are
probably talking about the years 1880-1910 or thereabouts.

B. My grandmother's cousin, name unknown - she might have been this said
lawyer's daughter - was the private secretary of Sir Herbert Samuel, when
he was the British High Commissioner of Palestine 1920-1925.

Has anyone got any ideas of how can I find more information and
verifications of these clues?

Thanks!

A Thank-You for Yad Vashem Search #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

On my behalf, a number of very helpful genners translated the Yad
Vashem POT for my EPSTEIN cousin. Several found more POTs for the
same cousin, which added to my information. Several gave me probable
addresses for the decendants of the woman who posted the POTs. I've
thanked each of them privately.

But I want to thank Bila COHEN by name in this forum. He went through
the trouble of calling my cousin in Israel, he established the truth
of our kinship, and gave me the contact information for my elderly
cousin in New York.

Best, Steve Orlen

Immigration Question #general

adam1gs@...
 

Does anyone know what was involved in bringing a relative >from Europe to
the US before WW II. For example: if my grandfather, who was a US citizen,
wanted to bring one of his children >from Poland, to the US, in the 1930's,
what were the steps he had to take to make this happen ? Would it be
necessary for him to hire an attorney to represent him in this process ?
Would he have to file any documents at state or county level ? Did he have
to post a bond and if so, with whom ? What government agency would he have
to go through and would there be copies of any records ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Steve Morse's 1790-1930 Census Browser #general

Joy Rich <joyrichny@...>
 

Steve Morse has added a "1790-1930 Census Browser" to his website. For each
federal census year, the towns or counties enumerated on each roll of
microfilm are listed. Free and slave schedules are included.

Click "1790-1930 Census Browser," listed under "US Census and Soundex
(1790-1930)" on Steve's home page at http://www.stevemorse.org. On the next
page, "Browsing the US Census Microfilms in One Step (1790-1930)," click
"View All Rolls." On the next page, "Description of US Census Microfilm
Rolls, 1790-1930," the page is arranged by census year, then state, then
roll number.

A subscription to Ancestry is needed to view the images. After finding the
roll number, go back to "Browsing the US Census Microfilms in One Step
(1790-1930)" to select the year (which automatically changes the series
number), roll number, and frame to be viewed and click "Display Frame."

Rabbi Eliezer ben Meir Halevi of Pinsk-18th cent. #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

I accidently came across the name Rabbi Eliezer ben Meir Halevi (no family
name mentioned) of Pinsk in the Enyclopedia Judaica. According to the short
article he was a Rosh Yeshiva (Head of a theological seminary) in Pinsk
during the latter half of the 18th cent.

As my ggggrandfather was a certain Rabbi Eliezer in Pinsk and is said to
have been a Rosh Yeshiva in Pinsk and/or nearby Karlin during the same
period I am wondering if this is the same person. His son or grandson
carried the family name KANTOR.

The bibliographical sources given for this article are: Nadav in "Zion" 34
(1969), and W.Z. Rabinowitsch "Lithuanian Chassidim" (1970).

If anyone is a descendant of this Eliezer or knows biographical details
regarding his descendants I would be happy to hear.

Shavua Tov,

Yoni Ben-Ari, Efrat, Israel
