Eliezer PUTERMAN-Korsha, Poland 1919-1948 #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

On visiting a memorial in the Galilee (Israel), at Nebi Yosha (also
known as Metzudat Koach-for 28 Israeli soldier who were killed in the
battle) there was a name of one of the above 28whose name was Eliezer
PUTERMAN (written in Hebrew with a Peh so I'm not sure if the spelling is F or P).
The memorial states that he was born in Korsha, Poland.

As my grandmother's maiden name was PUTERMAN I'd be happy to know If
anyone is related to the above fallen soldier, and where is the
city/town of Korsha. My ancestors came >from Brisk (Brest-Litovsk).

Shabbat Shalom and may we all have a good and plentiful winter.

Looking for Nachum son of Shlomo Yaakow 1874 in Pasvelys, Kovno #general

Desiree Bean <desiree@...>
 

Good day
I am slowly making headway with the "Liepner" family research in South
Africa and have discovered that Nicolas "Liepner's" Jewish 1st name was
Nachum son of Shloma(o) Yaakov which is inscribed on his gravestone.
Unfortunately his Jewish surname was not added.
"Nachum" was born circa Mar 1874 in Pasvelys, Kovno, Russian Empire and
educated in Riga according to documents I have.
I received information that there was a fire in the town of Pasvelys
during the 1870s or 1880s and all documents were destroyed in the fire.
This of course would make it nearly impossible to trace Nicolas's history if he was
indeed born in Pasvelys. So next question to ask.. does anyone know if there are
any records available for the schools that he could possibly have attended
in Riga? If so, hopefully I can find him in those records.


I have tried to find him by looking at records for the Poor Jew's
Shelter, but without knowing what his birth surname was this is not
proving fruitful. There are two conflicting dates for his arrival in S. Africa. The
Who's Who of 1916 mentions he came to S. Africa in 1894, but his Rand Pioneers
certificate mention's 1892. He may have come via Germany as apparently
that is where he worked as a tailor for a Mr Liepner, Hence him adopting the
surname. I am also not sure when he changed his 1st name to Nicolas. Is there
anyway of searching for him with just a year and destination country?

I am also trying to obtain a copy of his marriage document to Ada Powell
in South Africa. (1st child Robert Bertram was born in 1910.)
Nicolas is buried in the Jewish section in the Stellawood Cemetery in
Durban and Ada is not, therefore I presume that she did not convert to
Judism, but their children were raised as Jews.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards
Desiree Bean
