The father was Ferdinand Max FIX born in 1877 and died in 1949, he was the
son of Louis Ferdinand FIX and Emma JEAGER, and he was married to Harriet
born in 1872 and died in 1948. Ferdinand Max and Harriet had 2children,
Marian born in 1901 and Ferdinand born in 1908.
In 1920, the family lived in Cumberland in the New Jersey state and they had
a furniture store in Veneland.
The Ferdinand Max and Harriet burials is in veneland cementary, on the
gravestone the name Col. Palmer W. Sanders (1902-1974) is wrote with
Ferdinand and Harriet.
Could you, please help me, to descover who was Col. Palmer W. Sanders for
Ferdinand FIX ?
Could you help me to find the descendant of the family FIX >from Vineland in
NJ, USA ?

Sorry for my schoolard english.

Thank you very much.

Wanted: Photos of Towns of Strzeliska Stare/Nowe #galicia

Blanche Deutsch <MrsD203@...>
 

If anyone has or knows how I might obtain past or present
photographs of the Galician towns of Strzeliska Stare (Strelisk,
Streliska, Sstreliska) and Strzelisk Nowe, or the neighboring
town once known as Wojciechowice, please contact me.

Also, it has been almost impossible for me to locate specific
town maps or any general information about these towns. If you
know where I might find such information, I would be most
grateful for your suggestions and help.

Three eastern European wooden shuls #general

Joan A. Baronberg
 

Dear Jgenners,

Can you help us with information on any of three eastern European
wooden synagogues?
Although they no longer exist, they have an interesting link.

We are looking for information and photos of three wooden shuls, one
from the village of Suchostaw (currently in Ukraine, near Kopychintsy
and Husiatyn) and one >from Zloczew, near Lodz and one >from Zolochiv in
Ukraine.


The Suchostaw shul was reportedly modeled after the Zloczew or
possibly the Zolochiv one.
The Suchostaw wooden synagogue was built toward the end of the 18th
century. Many tales were told about it, and it even attracted the
attention of the Viennese Archeological Society. The Zloczew wooden
synagogue (not to be confused with the stone synagogue built after the
wooden one burned down)was built in the 18th century and based on the
designs of the famous artist, Hillel Benjamin.

There are Yizkor books and Shtetlinks for these towns but no further
information or photos of the wooden shuls.

Thank you for any bits of help or photos you can provide.

A success story #general

Sara Lynns
 

My father, Sam died when I was very young. My mother, for whatever reason,
did not make an effort to connect with my father's side of the family. It
remained a mystery to me as a child and an adult.
I knew little about my father. I began doing research on the LERNER
side some while ago. I found some family documents and census records.
My local Jewish genealogy group was helpful, as was Center for Jewish
History and LDS family history centers, too along with other resources.
I found out besides a sister, Sam had a brother, too. I appreciate all
the help I've received in doing family research.

My mother died (may she rest in peace) nearly 7 years ago. I'd posted
on different Jewish genealogy websites and occasionally received an email
from someone. However, there was no familial connection.
I saw a poster here entitled "connecting with your ancestors." Susan's
grandmother or great-grandmother was Native American. She facilitated
this workshop as part of her thesis paper. I spoke with her and decided
to attend the workshop.

We were told to visualize a relative we wanted to connect with. I did not
have photos of my paternal grandparents or his siblings. So... I chose to
visualize face to face talk with my father (adult to adult). I spoke with
Susan again a few days after this workshop.

That evening I received an email saying ..."there seems no doubt we are
first cousins..." I put my hand over my mouth and cried in disbelief.
Evelyn and her husband found my post(s) on Jewish genealogy websites.

I had been unable to find further documentation on my Aunt Sara, because
she'd remarried. Evelyn and I have spoken a number of times on the phone
and emails of course. We've exchanged photographs. Evelyn did not know
my father even existed.

We recently met. I'm looking forward to getting to know Evelyn, Roy and
my other cousins, too.

LIVNE - LEBENSOLD in Israel #general

Peter Lebensold
 

Can some kind researcher tell me if there is, currently alive somewhere in
Israel, a Schlomo LIVNE (Stephen Morse's transliteration feature seems to
provide dozens of Hebrew possibilities, so I've been unable to search the
telephone directories myself). Or a descendant of his.

Schlomo would be the son of Warsaw Holocaust survivor Jacub LEBENSOLD (b.1913),
and grandson of Schlomo LEBENSOLD and Estera GLIKSBERG. I'm guessing he would
have been born in the late 1940s, early 1950s.

Many thanks.

Re: Kollel Galicia - Rawa Ruska & Belz #galicia

Hello Karen,
thank you for all the information. My wife is a member of the
TRITT family >from Rawa Russka. Her great grand father Simche Trit married
Sara and they gave birth to Mordechai Tritt in 1878. The latter married
Liebe HIRSH. They gave birth to Israel Tritt in 1901. Then Mordechai left
Rawa Russka for NYC. He then brought his wife and child to the USA IN 1905.
They had more children in the USA and one of them gave birth to my wife
whose maiden name is Tritt.

I now will try to decipher all the information about the Tritts. If you need
any name information on Korczyna, Zmigrod, Nowy Sadz or Krosno, I will be
more then happy to provide you with the information.
Thanks again. Shalom

I have gone through the Kollel Galicia lists for several towns, translated

the families but have not yet completed, several of the Belz lists.
