R' Yisrae Nachman ben Yosef-"Mazkeret Legedolei Ostraha" #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

In the book "Mazkeret Legedolei Ostraha" (ed. Biber) there appear 2 articles on a
R' Yisrael Nachman ben Yosef (articles 222 &277). The editor makes a comment that
these two may be the same person.

We have an ancestor by the exact same name who lived during the 18 &19th cent. who
also came >from Ostraha and as the editor mention also made aliya as did the rabbi
(s?) mentioned in the above book. I would like to confirm if my ancestor and the
above are the same persons.

If anyone is connected to the above mentioned Yisrael Nachman or know their (his?)
genealogy I would be very happy to hear >from you.

Shabbat Shalom

Seeking Descendants or Relatives of 4 Abramowitz Brothers from NYC #general

Judith27
 

Dear JewishGendom,

I am researching the family of Morris and Sarah Abramowitz who lived on Eldridge
Street in the early 1900s with their ten children: Annie, Joseph, Rosie, Jacob,
Hyman, Samuel, Fanny, Lizzie, Harry, and Simon.

While for several of these children, I have unearthed a good deal of information
(including birth, marriage, and death records) for four of them I can find very
little other than a mention in a census

I would, as always, appreciate your input and suggestions to try to find further
additional information about:

(1) Jacob Abramowitz, born in "Russia" between 1890 and 1891, who was 15 on the
1905 NY Census and 19 on the 1910 US Census

(2) Hyman Abramowitz, born in "Russia" about 1895, who was 11 on the 1905 NY Census
and 15 on the 1910 US Census

(3) Harry Abramowitz, born about 1904 in NYC, who was a few months old on the 1905
NY State Census, 6 on the 1910 US Census, 17 on the 1920 US Census, and
mystifyingly 18 on the 1930 US Census.

(4) Simon Abramowitz, born Jan 5, 1906 in NYC, who shows up on as Sam (4) on the
1910 US Census. Simon (15) on 1920 US Census, and Sam (20) on the 1930 US Census.
The only other sighting for him is in the Social Security Death Index as passing
away October 1973.

World Memory Project Adds New Databases #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The World Memory Project is a joint project between the United States
Holocaust Memorial Museum and Ancestry.com to allow the public to help make
Museum documents searchable by name online for free. Anyone can contribute
to this project. There are over four million historical documents about the
survivors and victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution during World War II.

Recently the Poland Ghetto Transportation Lists 1939-1940 lists were added to
Ancestry: You may search the records at:
https://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=3D61598&cj
These records are in German.

Also added recently are the Prague, Czechoslovakia, Selected Holocaust Records,
1939-1945. This collection is updated and consists of records generated by German
occupational institutions and Czech auxiliary agencies who dealt with matters of
internal security and racial policy, especially anti-Jewish measures, during World
War II. This includes information on Jewish businesses, jewish property
questionnaires, death statistics documents and deportation of Jews to
Theresienstadt. To search these records see:
https://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=3D60551&cj

Both of the above databases, as are all World Memory Project databases, on
Ancestry are free to search.. Copies of the images can be ordered at no cost

The towns Dzyatlava, Delyatichi, and Slonim. in the 19th century #general

דוד נ.א.
 

Hello
I am looking for information about a Jewish named Eliahu Movshovitz, who he or his
wife wife (Gerona) was the offspring of a man named Rabbi Yossele Dlatisher.

Eliahu and Gerona lived in the town of Zytel (Dzyatlava) in Belarus at
the end of the 19th century, while Rabbi Yossele lived in the town of
Dlatitsh (Delyatichi) and died in the town of Slonim in 1858.

Searching the JewishGen database (Poland and Belarus) I could not find
any information. I want to find out if anyone had experience with
documents >from the town of Dlatitsh or >from the town of Zhetel,
archiving or otherwise, and / or if anyone has information about the
Slonim death certificates >from 1858 and how to get them.

Good luck in your research!
Thank you
David Nesher

Estera Liba CHOROSUCH #general

George J. Fogelson
 

My great-grandmother's sister was Estera Liba CHOROSUCH >from Lomza, Poland. On her
declaration of intention she lists six children. The one I cannot trace is Zitel
CHOROSUCH born supposedly in 1906 and was living in Canada in December 1931 which
is the date of Estera's declaration of intention.

The child's Jewish name was either Zitel or Gitel (Zitel may be a typo). The rest
of the family changed their surname to ROSEN for unknown reasons. For example,
Estera Liba CHOROSUCH became Elizabeth (Lillian) ROSEN.

I am at a loss of how to research what happened to Zitel/Gitel? Any suggestions
would be appreciated. The declaration is on ancestry under Estera Liba CHOROSUCH.
