I lived for a while and worked at Heywood Hospital in Gardner. I have
friends who were very well acquainted with the Rabbi and his family. One of
my friends went to high school with the Rabbi's daughter, the senators
wife. When I lived in Gardner the synagogue had recently closed.

I read your e-mail on the Jewishgen Digest of Dec. 1 about the Gardner
Synagogue and am sending you a bit more information. Early in 1995 I worked
closely with Mr=2E William Begin (ahlev shalom), the President of the
Synagogue, to merge it with Congregation Agudat Achim, 268 Washington St,
in Leominster,MA=2E (I am a member of the Leominster Synagogue). That merger
took place in May, 1995 when all the then members (thirteen or fourteen) of
Ohave Shalom became members of Agudat Achim. The Gardner Memorial Plaques
were installed in the small sanctuary in the Leominster shul. Many of the
Gardner records are in our office files.
When the Memorial tablets were moved to Leominster, two of the empty spaces
on the Tablet had a note covering them, saying they were reserved for Rabbi
Freilich and his wife.Mr.Begin removed the notes telling me the Rabbi and
his wife had made other arrangements=2E I am not aware of where the Rabbi and
his wife are buried.--Milton Kline

The names Israel and Sarah #germany

Florence & Henry Wellisch <kelwel@...>
 

While going through the birth records of Kolmar in Posen, now known as
Chodziez in Poland I found 7 children of Jacob and Charlotte Rotholtz. They
were born between 1876 and 1886. In the case of Leib, born in 1876, the name
of Israel, and the following handwritten note, translated >from the German
was added:
Based on Paragraph 172, Section 5 and the decision of the district
commissioner (Herr Landrat), the permission for registration of the second
name "Israel" is hereby given. Kolmar, 27. II. 1941
In the case of the daughter Fritze, born in 1884, the name of Sarah and a
similar handwritten note dated 31.3.1941.was added.
The other 5 children do not have the additional name Israel or Sara added.
My question is this. Would these additional names in the Kolmar register
indicate that Leib and Fritze were still living in Kolmar in 1941? I always
thought this was the case, but now I have been told that this is not
necessarily so.
I also do not understand why these additional names were added only in 1941,
since this law was passed in 1939.

Looking for Emmy SCHMIDT #germany

Michael Marx <MHMarx@...>
 

My grandfather, Paul COHN, lived in Berlin and was deported to Riga in
January 1942. According to the 1939 Berlin census he was living with
Emmy SCHMIDT at her residence at Charlottenburg, Kaiser-Friedrich Str.
80-81. She is listed as Jewish, born in Berlin on 17 April 1898. The
census gives her Kennkarte No. 32 62 90.

I am interested in finding out what happened to her, but I have been unable
to find any record of her after the 1939 census. Any information or suggestions
would be appreciated. Please reply directly to:

Our Freedman family was >from Birlad but older siblings of my gm were not

born in 1894 in Birlad and her parents were Velvel, who did not come to the
U.S. and Toby who did come to Chicago. My gm also enterd the U.S. through
Quebec and then by train to Windsor and down to Chicago. Five months later

Re: FRIEDMAN & GERSON from Riga #latvia

Rochelle Kaplan <rokap@...>
 

Dear Shafrir 2:

I am on route to NYC for a couple of weeks but saw your request re: Gerson
family >from Riga so wanted to write. My great-grandfather, Shmul Gerson,
came to NYC in 1898, followed by his wife Raschel, nee Zaks, and their
children in 1899. He had a brother Itzik, another brother Rafael who may
have died young, and two sisters Dobre Lea and Ganna. I don't know what
happened to the daughters. Their father was Jossel Kalman, of Bauska. I
don't know of Jossel's siblings or his parents. But perhaps there is a
connection between our families. Shmul Gerson became Samuel Herson in the US
and his descendants are Hersons. Itzik had several children. I am in touch
with Itzik's great-grandchildren in Latvia and in Israel. Other descendants
live in Moscow.

Sincerely,
Rochelle Kaplan

I am looking for people >from the Friedman & Gerson Family >from Riga. Do you

Some details that I know:

Friedman - Yedidia Elias Friedman (born 1872) married Etta daughter of Mark
Leib Brick and they had 3 daughters: Tanny (born 1899 in Riga),Lea (born
1900 in Riga) and Johanna (born on March 12 0f 1902 in Riga).

Gerson - Abram Gerson was born on July 7 of 1887 in Windau (Ventspils). On
1929 he married Johanna Friedman. They had a son Eduard, born on November 1
of 1931 in Riga and daughter Mia, born on December 15 of 1933 in Riga. In
1932 this family lived in Riga at Lacplesa St. 21-6. The last adress of
Johanna and Mia was Marijas 16.

I want to thank anybody who will know anything about people of these
families,

Re: Help finding a relative in Italy #latvia

martha <martha@...>
 

Try writing to her care of her publisher, George. They always forward
letters. You should write a cover letter in Italian for the
publisher, with a sealed letter enclosed for Marina. Italians are
more insular than other Europeans and you cannot be sure that the
recipient at the publishing house will be able to read English.

the author of the book "Ritorno in Lettonia", published by G.
Einaudi, in Torino, Italy, is a relative of mine. The problem is
