Dvora Malka (Dori) Labin of the area of Munkacz and Lupeni, Romania #general

Moishe Miller
 

Hello,

I believe that Dvora Malka (Dori), wife of Alexander Labin, may be the
Dori Labin known to my family as a (half) sister to my g-gm, Tzirel
Schwimmer (born 1879 in Munkacz) who married Yitzchok Yurowitz.

If so, Dori passed away around 1917 in Lupeni, Romania. Does anyone know
if death records are available for Lupeni, Romania, and how to go about
requesting this one? Also, is there a cemetery in Lupeni, Romania that
has legible tombstones? I would want to see who her parents were.

Sons of the Lion's Cub #general

Mel Werbach <mrwerbach@...>
 

Announcing Sons of the Lion's Cub: The Horenstein Brothers and Their
Fortune, a new book on Eastern European Jewish genealogy and history.

In the late 19th century, two brothers in western Ukraine, both
Hasidic rabbis, became fabulously wealthy within a short time period.
They and their families were celebrated by the Jewish population in
numerous folk tales. Even Sholom Aleichem, the great Yiddish
storyteller, wrote a short tale about them. Today, however, they had
been all but forgotten until the publication of this book.

Based on two decades of extensive genealogical and historical
research, Sons of the Lion's Cub reviews the 1000-year genealogy of
their ancestors in Eastern Europe (which include many outstanding
rabbinical families), and proposes a theory of how they acquired their
remarkable wealth.

Advanced genealogists will especially appreciate the footnotes and
appendices which illustrate some of the complexities involved in
genealogy research. For example, on the basis of Jewish naming
customs, the Horowitz family's claim to descend >from the HaLevi
HaYizhari family of Spain is shown to be dubious.

The book is available at Amazon.com and other major outlets.

Yitzchak LAZAROV-London and Jerusalem turn of 19th-20th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

A cousin of mine who wrote our family's history writes about an
Englishman ,Yitzchak LAZAROV
(spelling approx.) , a widower or divorcee who married my great great
grand mother , Gittle ABRAMOWITZ, second marriage for both.

They lived in Jerusalem. My cousin family sources had no details
regarding his life before this marriage besides the fact the he was
wealthy, had many children (>from his first wife, none >from second) .
My ancestress and he lived in the Mea Shearim neighborhood , which was
considered then an upperclass neighborhood in Jerusalem.

He seems to have died >from a broken heart over a sizable amount of
money which he lent to a Yeshiva in Jerusalem which seems to have gone
broke.

Does anyone have more details regarding the abova LAZAROV?

TIA
Yoni Ben-Ari, Jerusalem

p.s. This version may replace my previous requests over the years
regarding my ancestress' marriage to a LAZAROFF >from England and New
Haven, Ct. As there are similar "facts" it may be the same people with
a different "twist".

significance of smaller DNA segments-30+ cM? #dna

Milton Koch
 

I have noticed that there are several people listed on DNA sites that
I have visited, for comparison to me and/or other know relatives, who
have segments of 30+ cMorgans, but totals of only about 150 cM or less.
Several of these people may be distant relatives- since I know that they
share some distant family names and I have seen their family trees-towns
are similar as well, but the exact relationship has not yet been made
definitively.
Do these DNA numbers, nevertheless, suggest more strongly that they are
related, albeit distantly, rather than just endogamy??

Re: Chiune Sugihara visa lists #general

Mark Halpern
 

Dear Jeanine:

Your great grandparents Emil and Martha GALLINER are not on the Sugihara
Visa list of 2139 people to whom he issued Japanese transit visas while
he was Vice Consul in Kaunas (Kovno) Lithuania. That list was made up
mostly of people with Polish nationality. However, the Joint
Distribution Committee Archive shows that Emil and Martha were in
Shanghai during and after the War

You stated that "visas issued by Chiune Sugihara in Germany." If your
great grandparents were German Jews, they may have survived the War in
Shanghai, but most German Jews traveled to Shanghai on ships leaving
from Italian ports such as Genoa and Trieste. Sugihara issued exit visas
in Lithuania and also some 33 visas while he was Japanese consul in
Prague.

I was able to find that Emil and Martha immigrated to America >from
Shanghai aboard the SS Marine Adder landing in San Francisco on
September 24, 1947. Emil was 66 born in Zinten, Germany and Martha was
61 born in Posen, Poland. They had visas for permanent residency issued
in Shanghai and their trip was paid for by AJDC (American Joint
Distribution Committee).

None of this information means that they did not have a Japanese transit
visa, but it is likely they arrived in Shanghai via a different route.
It is reported that Sugihara issued transit visas >from the hotel and
from the train as he was leaving Lithuania and it is also reported that
there were many forged "Sugihara" transit visas. Just the other day, I
heard his son Nobuki Sugihara venture a guess that there may have been
700 forged visas issued.

If you or any of your relatives have Emil or Martha's travel documents
they used to leave Europe to go to Shanghai, I would definitely like to
see them.

No matter how Emil and Martha got to Shanghai, this is a great escape
story and you should be proud.

Checking accuracy of translations #general

Cathy Miller
 

Question
I am wondering if there is someone who has the time and Cyrillic (or
possibly Lithuanian) skills to take a look at 2 entries on my behalf,
click through to the microfilm copies of the original documents using
the hyperlinks and let me know whether or not there has been a
transcription error.

Background
I have done extensive research into our family on the excellent
JewishGen site. There are 2 entries where the information conflicts
with other information. Before I try to reconcile which is correct it
would be helpful to ensure there has not been a translation or
transcription error. To my great delight I found that both these
entries have a hyperlink to the copy of the original source which is
in the free on line FamilySearch database. Unfortunately being unable
to read the language which I am guessing is Russian/Cyrillic (but
could also have some Lithuanian as it was written in Lithuania), when
I look at the microfilm images I am not sure even which is the correct
image relating to the person I am researching, so I cant take a
screenshot to post on viewmate for translation.

The first entry pertains to the birth of my putative great uncle

VITEN, Girsh Eliyash ben Izrael son of Yosel 2270864 / 2

LVIA/1226/1/1309/649 1887 Panevezys Record #M71
When I look at the microfilm, Volume 1226/1/1309 starts at image
number # 314 but I cant find a reference to the last 3 digits (649) or
M71

All the other information about my great grandfather (named in this
entry as Izrael) suggests his name was Tsalel/Calel. My question is,
could Izrael have been a mis-transcription of Tsalel/Calel? (I
appreciate he may have been known by the name Izrael or it could have
been an entry error, however in the births of his other 5 children
including my grandfather he is always listed as Tsalel or Calel)

The second entry pertains to the marriage of a putative great great
uncle (brother of the above mentioned Tsalel/Calel/Izrael)
VITEN, Kashriel ben Yosel 2205137 / 2

LVIA/1226/1/1029/197/187 Marriage Record #2 1877 Birzai
When I look at the microfilm, Volume 1226/1/1029 seems to be in the
section that starts with 1226/1/1026 - 1226/1/1041 on image number 109
and 1877 seems to start at image number 160

If the date of the marriage and the age of Kashriel (22) and his wife
(18) at the time of marriage are correct, then this conflicts with
other evidence that suggests they may have been about 10 years older
at the time. I have been wondering whether I am dealing with one
Kashriel or two. Since Kashriel ben Yosel is a rare name and Viten far
from common, it would help to check this transcription in case there
is a simple error that could explain this discrepancy.

Crossing fingers this is the correct forum to address this. Please let
me know if I should be trying elsewhere.

Many many thanks
