Erasmus High School is the winner #general

Diane PRESSMAN FRANKEL <dlfrankel@...>
 

Thank you to all Genners who responded to my question as to which high school
would have been attended if one lived at 65 Lenox Road in Brooklyn.

A special thank you to Dick Plotz who was gracious enough to check the alumni
directory of Erasmus HS. My cousin is listed in the class of 1950 but there
was no contact address. I had heard that he moved to Australia.

If anyone graduated in that class year, please contact me privately. It is
possible someone might know of the family.

Seeking Family SIMON --> Darbenai, Lithuania --> So. Africa --> USA #general

Adrian Freedman
 

Dear Genners
I am trying for sake of completeness to elucidate what happened to a branch
of my mother's family.

My mother's great grandparents were Eliezer Mordechai PAI (A K A Motte Leizer
PAI) and ETA (Etel) PAI. They lived in Darbenai in Lithuania.
I am aware of three daughters born either in Memel or Darbenai:
Chaia Riva (m Barnett LEVY) emigrated to South Africa.
Faige Nessa (m Shleima AIDELMAN) emigrated to South Africa.
Pere Ita (m Bentsion SIMON) emigrated to South Africa.

The SIMONs had 6 children, 5 of whom emigrated to South Africa. I am trying
to find what happened to the remaining son who apparently emigrated to the USA.
His name was Abraham SIMON.

He was born in the 1890's perhaps late 1880 or early 1900 as I am not sure
of his position in the family. His wife's name is not known to me. I am
aware of the names of 4 children but have no other details. Their names
are (were):
Mottie (perhaps Max Leonard or similar - if following family naming tradition)
David
Pearl Ethel
Sarah

Does any one have any knowledge of this family?

Best wishes
A happy New Year
and success with tracing the families!
Adrian Freedman

appear in all upper case letters. This makes it much easier for readers to scan

Announcing Our Third Course: Using JewishGen to Research Ancestral Roots #yiddish

bounce-2090423-772983@...
 

Basic Jewish Genealogy (1) focuses on your immigrant ancestors
lifetime in the United States. The online text lessons begin with data
collection, organization and search techniques, and focus on
researching census, vital records and Ellis Island passenger arrivals;
there is a section on Computer Basics for Genealogy. If you are a
Value Added member of JewishGen, you can enroll at no charge. (next
class begins January 15)

The Intermediate Course (2), Breaking Brick Walls in the United States
is right for you if, despite basic online research, you have not yet
found the Hebrew names, approximate birth year or former European
residence for your U.S. immigrant ancestors as this course covers more
complex U.S. topics such as naturalization, military and governmental
records, and local archival research (next class begins September 20).

Using JewishGen to Bridge Ancestral Roots (3) begins with an
introduction to Jewish History, Culture and Naming Patterns, moves
into Finding your Shtetl, using JewishGen Researcher and Country
Databases and Jewish Records Indexing (JRI-P), and includes practical
hints on translation, finding a researcher and Holocaust research.
This course creates a bridge between the American Family data and
those left behind in Europe, between records available on JewishGen
and related sites and hiring a researcher. If you are an experienced
researcher, familiar with everything JewishGen has to offer, and/or
have already found your family in European databases, this course
would be too elementary (next class begins November 1).

All three courses feature a personal mentoring program using our
online FORUM where students are encouraged to post an ancestral
branch, set goals for their research, and work one on one with the
instructor(s). Courses open for enrollment 2 weeks before their
starting dates. Remember that the courses do not include research
beyond what is available online and in United States libraries and
archives. PLEASE read the course descriptions and requirements on
before enrolling in any course.

We look forward to interfacing with every student.
