Re: Researching a dayan in Ciechanow #rabbinic

Are you referring to

Rabbi Abraham of Ciechanow, the Plotzker "Ilui" (1795-1875)?

I see you are also researching PERLEMUTER. Is there a relation? I have a
connection to both families.

Pesia SINGER from Rymanow, Poland #general

David Scriven
 

Dear All,
My great-aunt Pesia SINGER lived in Rymanow, Poland before WW2 and took
care of my mother when she (as a young child) spent her summers
there. My grandfather Leon, Pesia's brother, had died of peritonitis
shortly before my mother was born.
My mother told me that Pesia lost her son and husband when they were
executed by the Nazis, but survived the war and subsequently moved to
America, however she knew no other details, and I have been unable to
track Pesia or any surviving family.
Some months ago, I was contacted by Malka Shacham Doron, whose mother
Frida Stary knew Pesia when they were young, and had met Pesia in
Israel after the Six Day War. Malka extracted details >from her
mother's diary and sent me the following information:
Pesia Singer married Shmuel SHTOFF (>from Sieniawa, Poland). They had two
children - a girl named Lucia born 1929 and a boy named Ideck
(Yehuda) who was born later. Shmuel became the chairman of the
kehilla in Rymanow.
After the Germans occupied Rymanow, Shmuel was asked by the Germans to give
them a list of young men >from Rymanow to do physical labour. He
refused and was taken to the school yard at Bieletzky street (near
Bielecki's house) together with his son Ideck. Shmuel wrapped both
his son and himself with a tallit and both were shot to death. (March
1941). The perforated tallit still exists and is kept in (Ignacy)
Bielecki's Judaica collection in Rymanow.
Pesia buried some of her jewelry in the garden and took Lucia >from home and
fled that night >from Rymanow. She hid Lucia at the home of their
Christian maid in a small village near Krakow. Pesia turned a beggar,
and for almost three years she sat next to Kosciol Mariacki (St.
Mary's Basilica) in Krakow, where a priest allowed her to sleep
inside the church at night.
Towards the end of the war as the Russians were nearing, a Polish man from
Rymanow who came to Sunday mass at the church recognized her. She
immediately fled Krakow and went to the village where Lucia was and
fetched her. During the last battles between the Russians and the
Germans she arrived at Rymanow. She dug up the jewelry she had
hidden and later settled in Sanok.
Pesia was one of the first survivors and hosted many Jews >from Rymanow
that arrived later >from various concentration camps. Later, Pesia
immigrated to Canada with Lucia.

A harrowing story, which I felt I must share - Pesia was both brave and
lucky. It gives me hope that 1) I might be able to track Pesia in
Canada (where I live!); 2) Lucia might still be alive and 3) that
some of those who survived the camps and visited Pesia in Sanok might
have passed on some memories. I wonder if any 'Genners' might have
some information.

Greetings:

Max GOLDBERG married Jennie EISEN around 1910. I have their census

to 1910 and after 1930. I was told in died early in the 1930?s after having
lost all his money in the real estate market. He may have committed
suicide. That is all the family verbal history about him. I have a complete
record of Jennie EISEN GOLDBERG >from 1920 onwards until her death in 1987.
Any help in finding information >from 1910 and back would be appreciated; in
addition to the following translations:

Veresmart/Kopanya #general

A July 1940 Hungarian ID certificate shows my grandfather Baruch
(Bernat) GLUCK to have been born in Veresmart, now named Velikaya
Kopanya and located about 8 miles west of Khust, Ukraine, on January
15th 1884, the son of Herman (Meyer Hersch) Gluck and Sari Wiezel.
However, I have been unable to discover much more about my
great-grandparents, and nothing about their ancestors.

If anyone
else has been researching this village and may have come across any
further information that could be of help, I should very much like to
hear >from them.

"Israeli" Marriage certificates from 1870's #general

Dovie <gelerinter13@...>
 

I know Israel didn't exist in the 1870's, but rather Palestine. How
would one track down marriage certificates >from that time period if at
all possible? My great-grandparents got married in the mid 1870's,
and I had thought it would've taken place in Poland, but, after some
more review, I think it may have been in Palestine. Finding their
marriage record would answer lots of questions I have.

Thanks!

Help researching Sarah STUBINSKY of Pittsburgh, PA #general

No Name <janglo_cruise@...>
 

Hello,

I'm researching my great-grandmother Sarah STUBINSKY. Here is what I
know. Sarah married my great-grandfather in Pittsburgh, PA October
1915. According to the marriage certificate she lists her birthplace
simply as Russia. Her age is listed as 20 years old. Her father's
surname is Shulim and he is listed as deceased. Her mother's name is
Katherine PAPIER residing in Russia. Sara's address is listed as
Robinson Street (Oakland) Pittsburgh, PA. The Orphan's court
appointed Israel GOODSTEIN as her guardian. Israel GOODSTIEN signed
a Consent to marriage and he is residing at Wyke Ave. and lists Sarah
as residing in her home.

On her death certificate in 1957 it lists her place of birth as Poland.

I haven't been successful in finding her entry into the U.S. I have
found something that is of interest. A ship manifest on the S.S.
Barcelona >from Hamburg to Philadelphia on April 23, 1912 contains on
line 3 a Taube STEPANSKIA. She is listed as 20 years old >from Pultusk,
Russia. It lists her mother back home as Rochel STEPANSKIA in Pultusk,
Russia (certainly not Katherine!). Whatâ??s interesting is her
destination of Pittsburgh, PA. Her destination is to her cousin Harry
NASCHALL?

According to the 1920 Census, it shows Sarah GINSBURG as being 28 years
old (yob 1892). Year of arrival is 1911. This info makes the ship
manifest a bit promising. Also the fact that her father was certainly
deceased by the 1915 marriage, listing only her mother left in Pultusk
(as opposed to her father) is another interesting fact.

Here are my questions:

1. It is hard for me to decipher the name of the destination on the
ship manifest. Could a kind genner perhaps send me a copy with a high
resolution?

2. Any opinions as to what the Last name of this cousin might be?

3. Does anyone have any advice how to proceed with my search?
Unfortunately, there is no known family that I can connect to my great
grandmother to further my search or leads.
