Buzuluk #general

Pnina Super <pnina.super@...>
 

Hi,

Does anyone known about the evacuees to Buzuluk during WW2? I just learnt
that my family all evacuated to Buzuluk >from Kiev in 1941. My great, great
grandmother died and was buried there. Is there any way I could find a
record of her death & burial? Keeping in mind that it was 1941 & that
there was probably no gravestone put up.
I'd appreciate any help.

Today in the NY Times, "100 Years Later, the Roll of the Dead in a
Factory Fire Is Complete". Leave it to a genealogist to fit all the

Looking for Family or People from Trochenbrod #ukraine

refsewnsew@...
 

I am looking for anyone >from Trochenbrod, but our family names include
Burak, Potash, Deitch (Deutsh), Weiner (Wainer). Most of our family came
to Worcester, Massachusetts. Some went to Montreal, Canada. Some were
able to get to Israel and escape the Nazi destruction of Trochenbrod
and all remaining in 1942.

Trochenbrod was also called Sofievka (and other spellings). I have been
working on our family tree and am able to go back to the 1840s. I am having
the Memorial Book for Trochenbrod-Lozisct translated into English if anyone
is interested in that project please contact me.

I am also looking for Edisons and Snyders >from Riga, Latvia.

Rabbis in Fordon, 18th century #rabbinic

Hello Genners
I am looking for information about Rabbis (AB"Ds) in Fordon (nowadays
a suburb of Bydgoszcz) during the 18th century. Is there any form of
BMD info for the Fordon Jewish Community for the pre 1808 period?
Any info will be greatly acknowledged.

Re: "list of Rabbis of Raseinia" + First Litvak MAGID? #rabbinic

Ezra Magid
 

B"H

Shavua Tov,

Part 1:
Heshel Teitelbaum kindly informed RavSIG that he possesses
a family heirloom book with a "list of Rabbis of Raseinia".
He seeks the identity of "Eli' [probably Eliyahu] ben Moreinu
HaRov R'Aryeh Leib".

One possibility could be Eliyahu Yosef RIVLIN who died in 1865.
His father was Aryeh Leib [ben Eliyahu "Platkes"] RIVLIN.
Another possibility [more likely geographically] could be
Rabbi Aryeh Leib BLOCH who died in 1755. His daughter, Devorah,
married Rav Dov Ber PESSELES.

Part 2:
Many of my MAGID ancestors, their brothers, and cousins were
rabbis in Lita. My 5g Grandparents [7 generations], Judah and
Rivka [KATZENELLENBOGEN] MAGID, were the greatgrandparents of
Hillel Noach "STEINSHNEIDER" MAGID, author of "Ir Vilna".
Hillel's grandfather, Pinchus "Maggid Zedek" MAGID, the first
child of Judah and Rivka, included genealogical info in *only*
one of his many books, all of which were reviewed by HaGRA [until
his death] prior to publication. Rav Pinchus MAGID was the personal
tutor to many of HaGRA's grandchildren.

Judah MAGID's greatgrandfather, my 8g grandfather, [10 generations]
was Sholom Zelig MAGID, who lived in the 17th century, and may have
survived until the 18th century.

Most, if not all, of the almost 1000 Litvaks with the surname MAGID
born before The Shoah are direct descendants of Sholom Zelig MAGID,
and/or his possible brothers.
Does anybody have any info about him?
Is he the first person to use the surname MAGID?
from where did he, and/or his parents, migrate from?
Is the name "Zelig" a clue that the migration was >from Central Europe?

I invite everybody with Litvak MAGID [+ all spelling variants]
ancestors to contact me. I'm focused on documenting all martyrs for Yad
Vashem. Also, many Magid relatives "disappear" >from Lita records due to
immigration, genocide, and forced migration such as The WWI and Stalinist
ejections.

Thank you,

RAVSIG Digest for Thursday, February 17, 2011.
1. Rabbis of Raseiniai, Lithuania
From: Heshel Teitelbaum
Date: Wed, 16 Feb 2011 01:09:47 +0000
Dear RavSIG readers:
Our family owns a sefer with a seal of the Rabbinate of the district
of Raseiniai in Lithuania. The book, published in 1807, has been in
our family continuously since about 1850 or earlier, as deduced from
the signatures on the inside cover. I presume that the original owner
of the sefer was >from an earlier time period.
The name of the Rabbi appearing in the centre of the circular seal
seems to be: Eli' [probably Eliyahu] ben Moreinu HaRov R'Aryeh Leib.
I will gladly provide a photo of the seal to anyone interested.
I would like to identify this Rabbi, just in case he is somehow
related to our family (which incidentally had roots in the Kielce
district of Poland during that time period.) Can anyone identify
this Rov? or, for that matter, provide a list of Rabbis of Raseinia
in the early 19th century?
Thanks.

Hi fellow Genners,

Several of you have offered help and information about Steven DeFren and this
was very helpful to my friend. Thanks to the folks who took the time and effort
to help. Thanks to you she found what she was looking for!

She asked me how to make a donation to Jewishgen and I sent her the info.

Once again our group demonstrates their excellent researching skills as well as

And isn't that what this is all about?

Shalom,

My sister and I and some of our cousins are planning a trip to Vienna and
then possibly to some places in Poland: Lipa; Bircza; Rybotycze; Przemsyl;
and Jaroslaw, all places where our family has roots. I'm hoping some of
you might have recommendations as the best way to travel >from Vienna to
Poland and for an English-speaking guide in the various Polish cities I
mentioned. Are there any archives available in any of the Polish cities?

I have no addresses where anyone lived in any of the Polish cities. Will
I just see a modern Polish city or is there anything of interest,
genealogically, to warrant the trip to Poland?

I thank you in advance for any assistance you can offer. You can reply

A Contemporary Look At the Jewish Past in Poland- Photographic Exhibit at Pepperdine University-Malibu, CA (USA) #poland

public, free, and will be shown through April 25, 2011

The late British photojournalist Chris Schwarz and scholar Prof. Jonathan
Webber gathered material that offers a completely new way of looking at the
Jewish past that was destroyed in Poland. The resulting photographs and text
of "Traces of Memory," the permanent exhibition at the Galicia Jewish Museum
in Krakow, Poland, piece together traces of Jewish life and culture still
visible in Polish Galicia today.
