more ROZENSZTEJN: road leads to London and South Africa #general

MandJMeyers <mandjmeyers@...>
 

More pieces of the puzzle are coming together.

The granddaughter of Yitzhak Yosef and Yochanan ROZENSZTEJN (sons of
Hersz Naftoli R) >from Janowa put me in contact with a cousin of hers
who had additional information.

Hersz Naftoli had 3 brothers (unfortunately no information yet on any
sisters........)

1. David ROSENSTEIN, was married to a Basia, and went to London around
1901 with 6 children.
David died in London in 1924 and finding his death certificate and
headstone will be crucial to get the names of David's (and Hersz Naftoli's)
parents. As some of David's descendants still live in England, we have
some very good leads there. There are also some possible leads at the
Edmonton Federation Cemetery (>from online JewishGen database).

2. One brother, name unknown, stayed in Poland.

3. Another brother of David and Hersz Naftoli, name unknown, emigrated
to South Africa.
So my family research leads me, for the first time ever, to the land of
South Africa.
Can anyone in South Africa suggest how to best track this unknown
ROSENSTEIN?
(I haven't even started looking at online JewishGen resources >from that
country yet)

Another interesting point >from the DavidR family branch is that there is
a memory of contact, more than 20 years ago, with elderly "ROSENSTEIN"
cousins in Canada, but the names are elusive so far. Also, one of
DavidR's children (possibly Annie, nee ROSENSTEIN, KING, but not certain)
may have emigrated >from London to Canada.

Again, please contact me privately if any of this sounds familiar (or if
you have suggestions for South Africa research paths).

I have to say I am amazed at the size and breadth of the JewishGen and
JRI-Poland communities and the capabilities that are possible when
critical mass is achieved.......just phenomenal reach all around the world.

Thanks again to everyone who has been helping.

Re: searching Kajla Lewkowicz Kamienk-Paris #general

I wish to thank Maria Waltman Daschko and Eve Line Blum-Cherchevsky for
their help to trace Kajla nee Lewkowicz.
With their help I was able to learn what happened to Kajla, to her son and
to her husband during the Shoah.
I discovered too new tracks to deepen my genealogical research.

Re: Meaning for Romanian Words Targ and Sat with Town Names #general

Targ was given at Market.
As for "market", I think this really means "market town", i.e.
a town that has a regular agricultural market, something that
a village normally would not have.
This may indeed be the explanation, but there is another simple explanation.
I don't know about its development in Roumanian, but this word need
mean only any old open-air peasant market. But Briceni-Targ may just
be the town name, without regard to what targ "means". Greenwich
Village isn't a village, and King of Prussia doesn't have a
king. There needn't have been a "targ" in Briceni-Targ for
centuries, for all that.

R' Zevulon Yehoshua NEUSTADTER's ancestry #rabbinic

Darren Dalcher <D.Dalcher@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Can anyone help?

According to Otzar Harabanim: R' Zevulon Yehoshua (5567) was >from a
great family with a distinguished Yichus; 'gedolei Yisrael' for a
number of generations. He was the Rabbi of Neustadt (Neishtat
Sugind, Nishtot Tavarig, Zemaiciu Naumiestis, Lithuania) >from the
founding of the Jewish Community there.

Is there any way of finding out more about his family and their
yichus? At the very least, does anyone have any information about
his father?

Please respond privately to: d.dalcher@mdx.ac.uk

Many thanks,

Passports of Jewish refugees found in Shang Hai. #general

19 German passports of Jewish refugees found
in an antique shop in Shang Hai.

Read the article in the German "Frankfürter Algemeine"
and see the scans of the pasports.

The article is in German.

Jüdische Flüchtlinge in Schanghai
"Mit dem Adler und mit dem J"
Von Frank Hollmann, Schanghai

<http://tinyurl.com/yoyy57>


Google machine translation into English of this German article,

translates the German "Was haben wir für ein Schwein gehabt!"
to "What have we had a pig!", the German idiom meaning "We have been
terribly lucky", so the translation is not completely kosher.
