Searching: KAPLAN family, Grodno/Minsk/Pinsk #belarus

Danny Kaplan <dannykaplan@...>
 

I'm trying to track down my Kaplan ancestors. My Grandfather Moshe KAPLAN
was born in 1923. He had a brother named Gershon. They were both child
prodigies and studied in the Grodno Yeshiva and then traveled with the Mir
Yeshiva to Shanghai.
Moshe & Gershon's father was Abraham Isaac KAPLAN, a diamond or Jewelry
businessman in Minsk/Pinsk. Abraham Isaac KAPLAN'S wife was Aidel
(daughter of Gershon)
I am looking for any information that can help track back my KAPLAN (kohanim)
Family beyond my great great grandfather.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Danny

Trying to confirm claim on my great grandfather's headstone: Solomon ZEILINGOLD #rabbinic

goldtenor@...
 

My great grandfather was born Shlomo ben Aharon in Pinsk in 1858. When
he immigrated to the U.S. in 1903, he was Solomon ZEILINGOLD. He died
in 1916 in Schenectady, NY. On his headstone, it states: "Here is
buried a righteous and honest man knowledgeable in Torah and fearful
of God -- our father Shlomo the son of Aaron -- a great grandchild of
the Rabbinical Genius [unreadable word] (May His Memory Be Blessed)
from Russia. He died on the 22nd of the month of Av the Year 5677.
May His Soul Be Remembered Among The Living."

On a note written on a family tree generated by a family member, it
states that the family descends ">from the 'TaZ', David Ben Samuel
Ha-Levi, Ukrainian rabbi 1586-1667, great grandson of Hagoen
(Rabbinical scholars) >from Karlin."

I recently received a family tree generated by the Jewish History
Research Group in Belarus which provided me with the following
information on the ZEYLINGOLD family >from shtetl Karolin:

My great grandfather Shlioma was born in 1858. His father was Aron,
born in 1820 and mother was Malka, born in 1823, the daughter of
Pinkhus. Aron's father was Isser (1786-1852) and mother was Chasha
(1790-died before 1855). Isser's father was Shlioma who died before
1815.

With this information, might anyone know how to figure out >from which
Karliner rabbi my great grandfather descends, and is there any way to
discover how our family might be related to the TaZ? I am happy to
forward the tree generated by JHRG as well as a photo of my great
grandfather's headstone.

Any and all information or anything that can point me in the right
direction would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Revision Lists for Pinsk #general

Mara Fein, PhD, CG <mfein@...>
 

I hoping for some clarification,

Miriam Weiner's site indicates that Revision Lists for Belarus for 1894
exist in the National Historical Archives of Belarus in Minsk. However,
what those Lists contain is unclear to me. Does anyone know if these
contain information of genealogical value?

As the birth records for 1887 do not appear to exist, I am trying to
determine if these Revision Lists might be useful for a person I am
researching who was born in 1887 and did not leave for America until 1911.

Thanks to anyone who can advise.

"Corka" ANHALT, born late 1940s in Haifa #general

Paula Eisenstein Baker
 

I'm looking for a person (probably a woman, probably in Israel) with
the last name ANHALT, nicknamed "Corka."

She was born in Haifa, Israel, within a year or two after 1946.

Her father was Pinchas ANHALT (b. Krakow, 1910). Pinchas and his first
wife had arrived in Israel ca. 1935; they were divorced, and he remarried.

Her mother was Esther/Yonah nee WEINBAUM. (Esther had also been married
previously; her earlier married name was NISSENBAUM. It's possible that
I've reversed those two names and she was born NISSENBAUM!)

This is not much to go on, and some of it may be inaccurate, but any
clues would be helpful!

Please reply privately. Many thanks!

Re: Identification of Great-Grandmother's Birthplace (ViewMate 71015) #poland

Stephen Weinstein
 

I would start by looking on JRI-Poland birth records for each of the
possible places. If you find a record of her birth in any of the
places, that tells you which one it is, and is more reliable that the
census.

Subject: [jri-pl] Identification of Great-Grandmother's Birthplace
(ViewMate 71015)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have posted an excerpt >from the 1930 U.S. federal census purportedly
showing the birthplace of my great-grandmother, Esther Aronson. It
is
on ViewMate at the following address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM71015

The name of the town in the census appears to be "Padavola, Poland." I
couldn't find any matches in the JewishGen Communities Database.
When I searched the JewishGen Gazetteer, I found four Polish towns, Podbale,
Podwale (two towns with that name) and Podwole, all of which are within
150 miles of Warsaw. None of these towns appears to have a significant
Jewish population, and I didn't see a single entry for any of those
towns in JewishGen's Family Finder.

Any suggestions on how I might narrow down the possibilities? My
great-grandmother was never naturalized and I haven't been able to find
a passenger record for her, so this is all I've got.

Thanks very much for your help.
