Is there a lawyer in the house?

Hasidim among your ancestors? #warsaw #poland

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,

If you've found Hasidim among your ancestors, how much do you know about
their practices?
Why did Polish Jews turn to Hasidim, and how did these ideas sweep like
wildfire through Jewish society?

Glenn Dynner's book , "Men of Silk " is an in-depth exploration of this
revolutionary impact on Polish Jewry in the 19th century. He draws on
newly-discovered Polish archival sources and Hasidic texts to describe
the leaders as successful populists who deftly combined mysticism with a
pragmatic approach to politics and business. Dynner's work also looks at
the full range of Hasidic followers, >from the downtrodden of
the shtetls to the well-to-do of Warsaw.

This 396 page book can provide a helpful context for your family's own
story. If you're exploring the genealogy of 19th-century Poland, you'll
find it useful, and it will be especially interesting if your family has
Hasidic predecessors. Meticulously researched, it includes sources and
notes for anyone who wants to investigate further and most importantly,
broaden their knowledge about Hasidim and their influence.

"Men of Silk" (product code OUP201) is available now at $65 plus S&H
from the JewishGenMall. http://www.jewishgenmall.org

Regarding the name Kitaichik, I believe that Kitai in Russian is China
and so this would be "Chinaman" or perhaps someone who imported from
China.



Freidman means "man of peace", which is a lovely name.

MAUSNER in Pennsylvania #general

Evelyn Filippi
 

I found an name in the jgft that belonged to a family member . So I
emailed the person who put the name in. I said this person belongs in my
family. He was married to my cousin he was in Aushwitz where he met my cousin
and married and he was a director. She wrote back sorry no I am wrong he
married her cousin was in tresensdadt and was a composer and played
piano. and belonged in her family and that there was 31 million hits in google
on that name etc. So I figured another dead end. But my brain wouldn't let
go. So I wrote her back a few times .Look if he was married once why not
twice......If he was in one concentration camp why not 2. If he could direct
why cant he compose or play a piano. It must be the same person. To make
a long story short she checked it out and emailed me back. It was the same
person. She sent me a picture of him and his second wife. and some other
info about him and the phone no for MAUSNER which was her family name in
PA. Unfortunately I left a few messages, they never relpied so it must be
the wrong person. If someone knows any MAUSNER it might be in my family
thanks to some extremly kind person in here I received a few newspaper
clippings in emails.

Searching for Pauline, Shirley and Anita YALON in the U.S. #general

No Name <janglo_cruise@...>
 

Hello,

I’ve recently obtained a death certificate for my
father’s uncle who died tragically in 1935. With the
information gleaned >from this death certificate, and
the help of a fellow genner (thanks Yehudah!), this
uncle has been found in the 1930 U.S. census. Lo and
behold this uncle was married with 2 children!

Samuel or Sam (Shmuel) YALON died in 1935 at age 33.
He lived on Van Kleff Street in Jersey City, New
Jersey. He left behind a wife named Pauline YALON age
30, and (at least) 2 girls: Shirley age 8, and Anita
age 5. In the SSDI there is a Pauline YELLIN that
matches the description which shows Pauline may have
passed away in 1992 in New York. Sam was >from Ostrow
Mazowiecka, Poland and arrived in the U.S. in 1921.
Pauline was >from Poland and also arrived in the U.S.
in 1921. They married in 1926.

If anyone may know a Shirley or Anita whose maiden
name was YALON, today aged 79 and 76 please tell me
where I may find them. I’d be very happy if I could
find out who these cousins are and make contact with
them.

Please contact me privately at:

can help.

Re: Need Portland, Maine to Toronto, Canada Immigration Info #general

HJB <hjb@...>
 

----- Original Message -----

I have found the name of Golda Mendelovitsch >from Romania listed on the
"SS Canada" Manifest arriving at Portland Maine January of 1912. Her
final destination is listed as Toronto Canada. Assuming she travelled by
train, (Grand Trunk Railway perhaps) to the Canadian border, where do I
look for her immigration records?

Thanks for your feedback.
I didn't know anything about the Grand Trunk Railway so I googled it. >from
the information at http://collections.ic.gc.ca/cnphoto/english/gt_ang.html
it seems that Montreal would have been the initial destination. At least
it's a good place to start looking. This site
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/genealogy/022-908.005.01-e.html will give
you the film numbers which can likely be obtained through inter-library
loan. Once you have the film it's a matter of going through them frame by
frame.

You could also search the Grosse Ille database
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/genealogy/022-504-e.html which includes
surviving records >from the Grosse Ille quarantine station >from 1832 - 1937

Good luck with your search.

Deportations from Breslau Wroclav LIEBERMANN, KATZ #general

David Lewin <davidlewin@...>
 

I am trying to establish whether two little children may have
survived World War 2.

Are there any population lists of Jews in Breslau at the start of World War 2?

I know very little

I know only that

Gabriele Ruth LIEBERMANN, born 2 Jun 1934 in Breslau

and

Denny LIEBERMANN, born 30 Sep 1939 in Dresden

were staying with their grandparents in Breslau .

I do not know on which side of their parentage LIEBERMANN or KATZ
these grandparents were

I also do not know the personal names of the grandparents.

Do you have any knowledge of lists - or where else I might ask?

Thank you

Re: Foreign Consular Post Records: Registration of American Citizens #general

Stephen Denker
 

The National Archive at College Park Maryland has the original ledger copies
of the Consular Post Record: Registration of (all) American Citizens (living
in the city of the Consulate). They have them in Record Group RG 84 for
cities all over the world.

My wife and I searched the set for Havana Cuba for the years 1920 - 1935.
New documents were required every 2 years. My grandparents arrived in the US
before 1900 and were naturalized citizens. We found several critical
postings. They contain a wealth of family vital statistics, historical
information and even in some cases original photos attached to the archive.
The record helped fill in some large gaps in my understanding. One post
especially confirmed my speculation about my grandfather's birthplace (a
very small Polish town - previous records always said "Minsk") and another
gave me the complete set of names for his nephew's family. Now I can try to
trace his family.

They are fascinating snapshots!
