Beth El Synagogue, New Rochelle #general

Vivian Kahn
 

During the 1950's my family belonged to Beth El Synagogue in New
Rochelle, NY and my brother and I attended their Hebrew school.
While cleaning out old files, I came across copies of The Scroll,
the yearbook of Beth El's education program for the years 1952-1958.

Please contact me off-list if you'd like me to look for names and/or
pictures of friends or family.

I grew up in Montreal with a childhood friend whose first name was Zina, so it is
indeed a real name.

Lookup Request 1937 Pittsburgh, PA for one surname #general

Anna Reuter <anna94306@...>
 

Dear Genners:
Does anyone have access to a 1937 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania City Directory?
I would like to check one surname in the Directory.
1937 is ideal.
Any Pittsburgh Directory between 1936 and 1938 is also good.

Thanks,

need help locating LUSTIG Ashkelon, Israel #general

Debby Gincig Painter
 

A few years ago I tried this and had been put on the trail of the wrong
family. So I'm trying again.

Is there any one who can help me locate Moses LUSTIG who was living in
Ashkelon in 1971 or members of his family. His Father was Abraham. His
Mother was possibly Rachel Itte (Kempler). According to a document
found on Yad Vashem filed by her brother Zev SCHVITZER, she perished in
Nowy Sacz so I am unsure if she is his Mother or if Abraham might have
remarried. I do not know if Moses was married or not. Uncles' name
he would know are Benjamin and Natan/Nathan. Nathan passed away in, I
believe Ashkelon, in the spring of that year. After having lost his
wife and daughter in Auschwitz, Nathan had remarried and has a
stepdaughter and granddaughter also living in, I believe, Ashkelon in
the 1960s-70s. I don't know if he married in Poland or Israel.
Benjamin (my Grandfather) perished in Auschwitz. The Moses Lustig I am
looking for would have been visited by cousins Lily and Renee in 1971.
It is said he (we) have family in Toronto, but so far I have not been
able to find the right family there either. This is the address I had
recieved for the wrong Moses Lustig in 2002: Hadekel ##.

I know extremely little about this side of my family as my Grandfather
left Nowy Sacz/Limanowa, Poland for Dortmund, Germany and for
complicated reasons had little to no contact with his family. I know
that my Grandfather had numerous brothers and perhaps 1 sister but don't
know how many for sure. These are the names I have found for my family:
Ascher born/died 1888
Moses born/died 1893
Benjamin Hersh born 1900 died about 1942 married Lea Elisabeth KLINGER
Abraham born 1902 died? married Ruchel Itte KEMPLER
Nathan born ? died Spring 1971 married? married?
Lola?

Their parents were:
Jakob born? died after 1926
Rifke IMOFF (also shown as Fink) born? died?

I realize this is a difficul request but I've run out of options.

Thanking all in advance for help and/or guidance,

question about information found on http://www.indeks.karta.org.pl #general

Debby Gincig Painter
 

I have found my Great-Uncle, Abraham LUSTIG on this list. I used the
suggested translation program for the smaller sections, but I haven't
been able to navigate the site on a whole so I'm hoping someone can help
me figure out what it all means.

It says that that in 1940 Abraham is deported >from Lwow. July 24, 1940
he is interned in Muzykowo, Archangielska and September 4, 1941 he
"departs," or as explanation says, given amnesty.

Does any one know about Muzykowo, Archangielska and what exactly it was?
Secondly, given the rough translation, of the source (Archive IT
district USW Archangielskiego, book of polish citizen included >from 1941
year amnesty - position ) what is meant by amnesty and to where would
he have been deported - back to Lwow? If so, how would I trace what
happened next? Basically, how can I find out more with the information
provided on this site?

I'd like to thank all of you who responded to my posting. There are
too many of you for me to respond individually. Your help was most
appreciated. The consensus appears to be that the name was actually
YAGOLNITZER, a fairly common name. Thanks again.

Art Linnick #yiddish

Stewart K. Bernstein <skbernst123@...>
 

Would anyone have any information with regard to Art Linnick, an American Vaudvillian and radio
personality in the 1920's/1930's. He performed un the name of " Schlagenhaur". Art recorded parody
songs for Columbia Records and was represented by The William Morris Agency.

I am attaching a notice which in a 1926 Variety, however, I don't know if I can attach a file for
viewing by the Group.

Thank you, and more about my grandfather, TZVI HERSH CHATZANSKY #yiddish

Vivian308@...
 

Bob: Thank you very much for responding to my questions in the digest and in
an email. You've given me some new leads, and I'm grateful.

I spoke with my father again, and he told me something I didn't know before.
He said that his father was the leader of Chialipin's chorus that traveled
around Kiev. I read a book, in English, about Chialipin, but it didn't mention
much about any particular chorus. I am going to try to locate the book again
and reread it.

My father also said that his father performed some comedy in or around Kiev,
separate >from his job with Chialipin. He doesn't know what years this was,
but I assume it was in the late 1890's and early 1900's. Does anyone have
relatives >from Kiev who performed comedy at this time?

Thank you again.

Latvia DNA Project started #general

Donna Dinberg <blacknus@...>
 

Dear folks,

We have begun a Latvia DNA Project with Family Tree DNA (FTDNA;
http://www.familytreedna.com/).

The Latvia Project is a dual Y-DNA / mtDNA project created for
individuals descended >from families that have their earliest-known
origins in what is now Latvia. The Project will allow those who have
a family geographic origin in Latvia to compare their DNA with that
of their geographic neighbours and, possibly, find family matches.

After discussion with FTDNA advisors, we decided to create a
geographic group rather than a surname-specific group mainly because
we have already documented many of the descendents of our earliest
ancestor, Elia TRUPIN, born before 1800 in or around Daugavpils. Our
surname is rare, and a Y-DNA surname project would only duplicate the
links we have already found within solid documentary evidence held by
the Latvian State Historical Archive. The Latvia Project will give
a broader latitude by permitting both Y-DNA and mtDNA matching and
will permit anyone with family origins in what is now Latvia to
participate.

We invite anyone with Latvian family origins to consider joining the
Latvia Project.

Please get in touch with us if you have any questions.

Revue #92 #general

Ernest Kallmann
 

The belated issue 92 of Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive is now
available, with apologies. This is its content.

Families

Bernard Levy discusses the picture taken on April 17, 1912 in Le
Vesinet, a suburb of Paris. Some sixty persons >from prominent Jewish
Parisian families had gathered there to watch the total sun eclipse. The
author, who is one of their descendants, identifies them, shows how they
are related and sketches their personal fates.

In our issue #91 Françoise Job has published an article about the
surname /Wertenschlag/ which was adopted by Jews >from the Haut-Rhin
Departement as ordered by the Napoleonic decree of July 20, 1808.
Several readers have been startled by the enigma the paper contained.
Their answers are published here.

Miscellaneous

Bernard Lyon-Caen analyzes the deed executed by two Jews >from Metz,
Isaac OULIF and Nathan Olry CAHEN in the office #41 of the Royal
Counselors, Notaries in Paris on August 10, 1722. One party acquires the
other’s half of a house which they jointly own in Metz. The author
exploits the document >from three points of view: such early deeds
implying Jews in the Registers of the Parisian Notaries are rare; in
which conditions did the Jews in Metz dwell?; how does this deed fit
into the history of the Jews >from Metz?

Georges Graner reports in detail about the seminar of November 18 and
19, 2007 organized in Marseilles by Daniele Fareau, the president of the
Marseilles section of Cercle de Genealogie Juive. Three historians
lectured under the theme “Jewish migrations in Marseilles” about: Jewish
presence >from Antiquity to present; Jews in Marseilles in the 17th
century; The role played by Jews in Marseilles during the 19th century.
The seminar also hosted genealogy workshops and provided visits to town
and Departement Archives.

In Our Library

Monique Levy and Jean-Philippe Chaumont have just published the first
volume of /Dictionnaire biographique des rabbins/ ... en France et
Algerie (Berg International ed., Paris , 2007) covering the range >from
1807 to 1905. Monique Levy explains the purpose and use of the book.

Veronique Cahen publishes the computerization of the /ketouba/ (marriage
contract) stubs at the Paris Consistoire >from 1872 to 1884, to be
followed by two other volumes up to 1912.
