Belarutka Aid Society #general

Marianne Handler
 

My husband recalls going regularly, with his family, to outings/meetings of the
Belarutka (unsure of the spelling) Aid Society. The outings took place at the
Eugene Field Park on Foster Avenue in Chicago. One family was Handler (Morris,
Barney, Joseph) and Simon (Joseph). I have not been able to find any information
on this group.

If anyone >from the Chicago area has any such information or knows folks who were
a part of this group it would be very much appreciated. Please send directly to
the email below.

Thanks,
Marianne Handler

Re: 6 Reasons Newspapers Should be Part of Your Family History Research Plan (New JGSLI Video Announcement) #general

Nolan isn't kidding when he says newspapers can "add color to your family
history"! There's nothing to breathe life into flat documents quite like
finding nationwide coverage of your ancestor (of impeccable reputation!)
being indicted for profiteering during a leather bubble, or a very
respectable Rabbi's wife being charged with tax evasion while making cigars
in the Lower East Side, or a relative being called out as a customer by a
woman charged with performing abortions.

On the more positive side, I also discovered a previously unknown branch of
my family who had been living in France since the 1880's as a direct result
of finding a "Lost and Found" ad my GGF placed in the Nancy newspaper in 1898.
That lost and found ad >from 118 years ago led directly to locating the last
two descendants in France and, best of all, a trans-Atlantic reunion last fall!

Check out the JGSLI video and then start plugging in keywords, you might be
surprised by what you find!

translation, addendum to Maskir prayer #germany

peterwiesner@...
 

My Mother was given by her parents a booklet of prayers when she boarded
the Kindertransport in Berlin in May, 1939. Her mother, who was later
murdered in Rumbula, included a three-line handwritten note in Hebrew as
an addendum to the Maskir prayer. I would like to have this note
translated.

Since this handwritten note can only be captured as a picture file (not
as plain text as required), I would like to know how I can send this
file through your system. [Go to: http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ ]

I would be grateful for any help in this.

Thank you, Peter Wiesner peterwiesner@comcast.net

INTRO - researching Romann family from Trautenau, Bohemia, and Bielschowsky family from Breslau and Oels, Schlesien. #germany

Cyril BIELSCHOWSKY <cyril.bielschowsky@...>
 

Hello GerSIG,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for a few
months, I am a beginner in doing German Jewish Genealogy research.
I live in France. My native language is French and I also know some
English and a very little of German.

There is a Stammbaum about the BIELSCHOWSKY family on the net and it's
quite complete (http://www.bielschowsky.nl/). It begins with Alexander
BIELSCHOWSKY , born in 1740 in Ponischowitz (Kreis Tost), Upper Silesia.
His descendants established in Breslau, Oels or Naumslau.

My primary research goals now are to find out :
- if it's possible to find elements before 1740 for the BIELSCHOWSKY
family.
- more about the ROMANN family : my great-grand-father Karl BIELSCHOWSKY
from Oels married a Rosa ROMANN (1872-1912), daughter of Louis ROMANN
(1832-1921), >from Trautenau (now Trutnov) and would like to find what
were the connections between Oscar (1871-1919, married to Ella Gl=FCck),
Gertrud, Hugo (deceased in WW1), Friedrich (1900-1969?), all Romann.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 723415.

The family names and ancestral towns that I have entered in the JGFF
(JewishGen Family Finder) are :
BIELSCHOWSKY >from Olesnica (Lower Silesia), Poland (Oels) ;
BIELSCHOWSKY >from Wroclaw, Poland (Breslau) ;
ROMANN >from Trutnov, Czech Republic (Trautenau).

A significant roadblock in my research about the GOTTLIEB family #galicia

דוד נ.א.
 

Hello

I want to share a significant roadblock in my research about the
Gottlieb family. It is that the result of all my searching up to now
is -- zero. Nothing. Nothing like this happened to me with the other
families I have researched. Perhaps some of you have ideas not
thought of.

I am looking for information about parents of Hinda-Basha SINGER
nee GOTTLIEB, born about 1890.

Father: Isaiah. Born sometime before 1872 and died around 1910.
Was a rabbi in Zlotniki (Ternopol, Galicia). Probably also lived in
Stretin (Rohatyn, Galicia). Died either in Stretin or Bukachevtsy
(Rohatyn, Galicia). The funeral was for sure in Bukachevtsy.

Mother: Esther Malka (nee LANGNER - not sure). Born sometime before
1875 and died sometime after 1905. Her eldest son was born in 1905 in
Bukachevtsy and was killed there in 1942.

This is what I know.

Beginning of the end -- I got (for a donation of $100 to JRI) records
of Bukachevtsy. There is a marriage of 1900-1908. I could not find
there the wedding of Hinda-Basha. I found her children's birth records.
They don't say the names of Hinda-Basha's parents' names or any
information about them, but they say that Hinda-Basha was >from
Stretin.

I looked for the birth of Hinda-Basha in Stretin. JRI is missing most
births between 1881-1898.

I looked for the birth / marriage / death certificates or other records of
family members in Zlotniki. Mark Halperin says that all the documents
of Zlotniki did not survive.

I looked for the birth or marriage of Esther Malka LANGNER on JRI and
in the All Galicia Database. I found nothing. I can not search for a
specific archive because I have no idea about the town and the year.

I looked for the death of Esther Malka LANGNER. She may have died
less than 100 years ago, so the record may be in the USC in Warsaw, in
a book of any town (maybe Bukachevtsy?). In any case, they will not
search without a specific Year of Death.

I looked on JRI and in the AGD for the birth or marriage of Isaiah
GOTTLIEB. I found nothing. Again, I can not search for a specific archive
because I have no idea about the town and the year.

I looked for the death of Isaiah GOTTLIEB in the USC office in Warsaw
(between 1909-1911). They searched the books of Rohatyn (including
Stretin), Burstein and Bukachevtsy. It's strange, but they did not find
anything.

I looked for general information in Rohatyn's memory book, on JRI and
on Gesher Galicia -- anything useful.

I found in Ternopol the birth in 1898 of Hinde Bassie, daughter of
Benzion GOTTLIEB and Tille SASS. I thought she might be a cousin of
"our" Hinda-Basha, but she was probably named for Tille's mother, not
for someone on the GOTTLIEB side.

I found in Trembowla the birth of another possible cousin: Basia
Hynda, born 1898 to Benjamin BASEN and Szeindel, daughter of Josia
and Basi GOTTLIEB.

It is rumored that Esther Malka was related to the famous LANGNER
family -- rebbes >from Stretin. I checked their family tree to find a
possible relationship -- nothing.

I hope not burdened amount of information. I did not want to bother
proposals already checked.

Before I give up, I try to ask for your help. Does anyone have an idea?

Thank you in advance for any reference.

Unable to find names on NY passenger lists - LOSEFF #general

Walter Rosett
 

I need help finding names on passenger lists. Even the Family History Library
help desk was to no avail. Dora LOSEFF b 1883 in Veliz(h), Russia
stated she arrived on the Caramania (Carmania) >from Bremen on 20 Nov 1905
arriving NY on 13 Dec 1905. She immediately went to Chicago where she had
family.

A presumed relative, Sophie LOSEFF aka POGROFF b 1894 stated that she
arrived in NY on the Germania Dec 1905 under the name Shifra LOSEFF. She is
possibly a sister to Dora.

Saul LOSEFF aka Solomon Solomons LOSEFF, the sister of Sophie stated he
arrived >from Liverpool leaving 11 Dec 1905 and arriving in NY 12 Dec 1905 on
the Carmania as well. Likely he originated in Bremen. All these persons
seemed to have stopped in Liverpool >from Bremen to NY. I presume that the
Carmania and Germania refer to the same ship but possibly not and dates
could be mistaken. There seem to be various records for these ships but I
have not been able to locate anyone with this surname on any of them for
these dates. Obviously I am missing something and need help.

Thanks.

Death of Louis (Eliezar) SLONIMSKY #general

Barbara <bj1friends@...>
 

I am trying to find more information on the death of my great-uncle, Louis aka
Eliezer SLONIMSKY, born about 1886 in or near Slonim, Poland, now Belarus. He
emigrated to the US on April 6, 1902 and died on June 5, 1916. His New York
City death certificate says the cause of death was "between two cars." He was
buried in Washington Cemetery, Brooklyn, NY on June 6, 1916.

Given this early date, one would think that there would be a newspaper account
of his death somewhere. He is said to have worked on trolleys, so it is
possible that the two cars were trolley cars. I have checked the NY Times and
some other papers including the Forward (though I can't read Yiddish) without
luck so far.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
