Husband(s) of Chana Yona HELMAN-LOEW #general

Shaul and Aviva Ceder <ceder@...>
 

I have seen a considerable amount of conflicting information that Chana
Yona, the wife of Rabbi Zvi HELMAN-LOEW, the uncle of the Maharal of Prague,
was also married at different times to Rabbi Moshe Gershon ALTSCHULER of
Krakow (who, at least according to the information I have in front of me,
was about 20 years her junior), and also to Rabbi Shalom SHACHNA of Lublin.
Does anyone have any authoritative information that will help clear up the
jumble? And thanks in advance.

Latvia SIG #Latvia RE: GROSSMAN, Riga #latvia

Elaine I think you are confusing Lithuania and Livonia when you say Riga
was in Lithuania at one time. Riga was never in Lithuania. Vidzeme extended
from Riga to Estonia and was Livonia or Lifland. Courland was Kurzeme and
Zemgale. If your father said they were Prussian Jews it is possible they
were >from Courland which was Germanic.
I do not know who you emailed in Riga but if you want research done then you
should contact the Latvian Historical Archives
irina.veinberga@...
You should also post a message on the Courland Discussion Group.
They may have originated in Lithuania and gone to live in Latvia so a
message on LitvakSIG Discussion Group may also help.
I assume you have done research on the Jewishgen Latvia Database and you
should also try the LitvakSIG Database. If you find names that seem to be
your family you should confirm with the appropriate Archive as it is easy to
make mistakes.

My mother always said that my father's family came here >from Riga, and that
they were Prussian Jews. When I look at historical records, such as the
census from1900, they are listed as coming >from either Lithuania or Russia.
I know that Riga at various times was part of each, but I would like to know
if her information is accurate, and how to find out more about his family.
My father's name was Nathan GROSSMAN; his parents were Ella and Joseph
Grossman. That's as far back as I have been able to go.
I have emailed with someone in Riga, who says there are no records of their
being members of a synagogue, but I would guess they would have belonged to
an Orthodox one if they did, and it one existed. Any help would be
appreciated. Thank you.

Bessarabia SIG, Update for July 2018 #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear Bessarabians,

Please see the What's New Section for the details of what we did new in the month of July.
Because of the conference, I spent most of my time to do research I am going to present in Warsaw.

Genealogical Conferences.

Please find at our website all sessions related to Bessarabia/Moldova at
https://www.jewishgen.org/bessarabia/PTM_Article.asp?id=196

If you still are deciding to come to Warsaw or not, I would suggest to pack things and come over.
It will be an interesting event with many presentations, meetings, conversations. I also want to
repeat myself, as saying that a little more than 200 years ago Poland was a neighborhood with at
that time Moldova Principality... and many Jews who came to Bessarabia in 18-19 century, were
from Poland...
If you are coming to conference, please come to our Bessarabia sessions, meet our guest speaker
Serghei Daniliuk, who will make two presentations - one on Jewish Shteitle without Jews in
Moldova and second on Jewish Cemeteries in Bessarabia/Moldova. Serghei also is offering
translation assistance >from Romanian.
If you are interested in hearing about Moldova Archives, this is going to be on my lecture. It will
include many sources of information, like NARM - National Archive of Republic of Moldova,
Miriam Weiner's Archival Material donated to Bessarabia SIG, FHL, other.
I believe that this research will bring more records into our collection, and it will allow to broader
our personal research.

Bessarabian Databases.

Updates:Bessarabia Revision Lists. A new set of records was started and some sets are in progress.
These records are going to be submitted to JewishGen in December of 2018. Records include
sets for Soroki, Ataki, Rashkov, Valey-lui-Vlad, Izmail, Beltsy, etc.

Here is the list:

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Joseph Levin, paris #lithuania

Tamar Dothan <dothan-t@...>
 

I am looking for any kind of information about Joseph Levin or his
descendents. Joseph was born in Lithuania, most probably in Kedainiai
[Keidan], son of Ya'acov Levin. His father's family was originally >from
Baisogala. He immigrated to Paris, France, were he was a meteorologist,
maybe a professor of meteorology. In 1921 he published a book about
the weather in Paris "Atlas meteorologique de Paris", published by
Gauthier-Villars in 1921 in Paris. His title as written in
the book was ""aide meteorologiste de premiere classe a la section des
recherche scientifiques de l'office national meteorologique". I have
been unable to locate any other information about him, including in the
French deportation list recently published.

Tamar Dothan, Jerusalem
Looking for: >from Lithuania - Sroelov, Smilg, Levin, Edelman;

from Ukraine - Lerner, Lutzky, Lissin.

JRI Poland #Poland Weissbrod from Tomaszow Lubelski #poland

Beverley Davis
 

Having looked through the JRI-Poland and JewishGen databases with no
luck, I am hoping that someone might be able to help me with my research
into Avigdor Weissbrod (born ca 1866; died after 1926 possibly in Haifa),
his first wife Beila (possibly Lieberman), and their children: Esther,
Leah, Minche (?? male or female), Tobiasz/Tuvye (born ca 1898, who went
to "Palestine", returned to Poland, and was killed by Nazis in 1942).
Avigdor married a second time, to Rose (surname unknown), and had a son,
and a daughter born ca 1911.

I have been very successful in researching the families of two other
siblings, Henoch (Israel) and also Jacob (Israel and Australia ) (the
latter being my daughter-in-law's grandfather).

Of course, the family name has a number of different spellings -
Weisbrod, Vaysbrod, Wajsbrod/t ...

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Please respond privately with family information.
Suggestions for research methods or resources may be shared with
the list.
