Re: Identifying a name #general

Lisa Liel
 

I want to thank everyone for your help.  There were two suggestions that
I received >from a number of people.  The greater number suggested that
the name Lyrles was actually Zyrles, for Tziril, and that what I read as
an L was actually a Z. A couple of people suggested that if the
reporting person had said "Leahleh Sacks", the person filling out the
form could have misheard it as Lyrles Sacks.

What tipped the balance for me was when first Jenny Schwartzberg, and
then Michael Richman, pointed out that a common Anglicization for Tziril
is Celia, and suggested that I see if any of Shmuel Moshe's descendents
were named Celia.  And in fact, of his two daughters that I'm aware of,
one of them *was* named Celia. So I'm concluding >from this that he
named his daughter for his mother, whose name was Tziril.

Thanks again,

Lisa Liel

GRONER related to HALBERSTAM #general

Neil@...
 

In the 1975 edition of Imrei Avraham by Abraham Englard it states that
Rabbi Haim Groner of Bardiyov was a brother in law to Rabbi Haim
Halberstam, Admor Sanz and author of Divrei Chayim.
Does anyone know how they were related?

Long shot - who was the Isdal Woman - maybe she was a Holocaust survivor? #general

RH
 

Dear All,

I have just finished listening to a fascinating radio broadcast called
Death in Ice Valley, a BBC podcast over 10 weeks.

This was about trying to find out about the identity of a woman whose
body was found on the slopes of an isolated valley called Isdal Valley
in Bergen, Norway in November 1970. The woman is known in Norway as the
Isdal woman

Despite subsequent investigation by Interpol , local police, private
investigators no one to date knows who she was or why she died there.

The BBC broadcast did extensive new investigation including DNA and
dental Isotope checking and determined that she may have been born in
about 1930 in south west Germany.

On the basis of this they began surmising ( as I did ) that she may have
been Jewish and escaped the Nazis but her family did not...

If anyone might know of someone that went missing in 1970 perhaps they
should be in touch .... if the woman does indeed turn out to be Jewish
she deserves reburying and naming. The program said that she was buried
in an unmarked grave by the police.

Thanks

Ezra Hyman
