Searching SHER (Phila.) and DANN Poland #general

Bill Sher
 

Shalom,

My father and his parents arrived in the U.S. >from Galicia in the
mid-1890s. They moved to Philadelphia where my grandfather Menasche
Scher had two brothers living. One brother was Simon Sher (note the
change in spelling) and I think the other brother was Max Sher. These
two brothers later owned a green grocery and a fish store, side-by-side
on South Street. In 1904, Simon lived at 118 Ellen Street. Our last
contact with these uncles was in the late 1930s. Does anyone know of
any descendants of Simon and Max? I have recently returned from
Kolomyya, Ukraine, where I believed the Scher family once lived, but I
could not find the Jewish cemeteries or any other information about
their prior residence.

I am also researching my maternal grandfather, Abraham Dann, his wife
and two sons who were living in Mosciska, Poland before World War II and
up to 1942. Since I have not been able to find the name "Dann" in any
listings or directories, I thought that the spelling may have been
different in Polish. I have now come across the listing "Dann, A." in a
1920's business directory for the village of Yavorov (also spelled
Jaworow in Polish) which is about 30 miles north of Mosciska. The
directory indicated that this A. Dann owned, what I am interpreting
"obuwie" to mean, a shoe store. Does anyone know of the Dann family?

Kelme families - Wolpert and Baude #lithuania

While this may appear to be a private message, it is exactly the thing
we should all receive. I'm going to contact Mr. Crook as well,
because these names ring a bell for my research also.

Please continue to post similar types of messages.

Thanks,

Dear Itzhak,

My descendants also came >from Motole and Pinsk. My grandfather's name was
Nathan David (Norte David) Karlinsky and was born along with his sisters
and brothers in Motole. He came to the U.S. in 1905 and his brother came in
1901. I have a copy of Chemerinski's book, but my Hebrew is minimal. I have
had a few pages translated since I have a xerox copy of the book. I beleive
Chaim Chemerinsky was my grandfather's third cousin (first cousin once
removed) as well. I believe my grandfather and my great aunt and uncle
confused him with Chaim Weizmann. The reason is that Chana Chemerinsky, his
mother, was a Karlinsky and was my grandfather's great aunt. Can you tell
me more about the book. My great grandfather and great -great grandfather
were in the lumber and logging business as well.Thank you. Please stay in touch.

How did Jews get to France? #general

Joan Krotenberg
 

I am wondering about the various ways that Jews got to France starting with
the Roman conquest of Judea up thru the 17th century. I am particulary
interested in the Jews of Brittany. I have found people with my maiden name
(MERER) who are not now Jewish living in that area. I would appreciate
anybody knowing the history of the Jews in this area i.e. articles, books,
personal knowledge who could help.

Thank you.

Larry:

I hope that you have seen the book "The Promised Land' by Mary Antin,
written around 1910. A recent edition was published in paper back, edited
out of the Afircan-American Dept. of harvard. The author was born in
Polotzk, Belarus, and emigrated to Boston at age 15. The book contains
several pictures of Jewish life in Polotzk at the turn of the century. It
is published by Penguin, available through Amazon and Powell's (out of
Portland, oregon).
Good luck.

Dear Professor Golden,

I had the opportunity a few days ago to visit a special collection at the
University of Massachusetts of pictures of Polesia. Most of this collection
were pre-holocaust photos smuggled out by Josef Obrebski. Many of the
captions and annotations are in Polish. This show life in this area for the
Belorussians. If you have any interest in discussing this matter with me.
Feel free to contact me.
