Subject: [safrica] WALTS GALORE


PROBLEM 1:
Many of the descendants of Alexander WALT of Ukmerge
(Wilkomir), lived in South Africa. As did many of the
descendants of Benjamin Leib Walt also >from Wilkomir.
Whilst I know quite a lot about Alexander's
descendants, I know little about those of Benjamin.

One of Benjamin's sons was Abraham Jacob WALT (who had
an uncle known as Jekkel) who owned a hardware store
in Claremont, Cape, South Africa. As a young man
Abraham worked for Chuck JAWITZ who was married to
Celia WALT who is a descendant of Alexander WALT. Als
Abraham had a cousin Morris WALT.

Does anyone have any information which might in some
small way help me to establish whether a relationship
exists between Alexander WALT and Benjamin Leib WALT?

PROBLEM 2: The late Dr Alexander Walt (1923-1996) was
an eminent surgeon at Wayne State University. Does
anyone have any recollections or biograhical details
about this man (a descendant of Alexander WALT, see
above)?

PROBLEM 3: 'Sonny' WALT was a medical practitioner in
South Africa. He was also descended >from Alexander
WALT. What was his real name? Does anyone have any
recollections/bigraphical details about him?

PROBLEM 4: Thee was a firm called Walt&Gorfinkel in
Cape Town, South Africa. Does anyone know who was the
Walt in this name and also can anyone tell me anything
about the activities of this firm?

PROBLEM 5: Another harware store in Claremont: M. GENN
& Co. Was this owned by Meyer GENN who was married to
Lifsha WALT?

Any help on any of the above will be gratefully
received by me, Adam Yamey, London, UK<adamandlopa@yahoo.co.uk>

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This very interesting work was translated several years ago by Rabbi
Joseph Reinman and Published by CIS Publishers in Lakewood, New
Jersey.

I've even noticed copies at several libraries.

In addition, an organization, as part of it fundraising program,
arranged for partial excepts of the translation and used them in
mass mailings.

Rabbi Reinman mentions in the introduction that Rabbi Abohav
prepared sermon notes and the result was this extraordinary sefer.

Re: Alexander #general

The question is:

"The first name Alexander (usually in the Yiddish form of Sender,
after Alexander the Great, is not an uncommon Jewish first name.
Alexander lived in the 4th century BCE, before the division in the
Jewish world between Ashkenazim and Sephardim, yet, as far as I
know the name is only used by Ashkenazim. Can anyone explain this?"

Alexander was often a name used to refer to the 'good Czar' Alexander,
who was assassinated n 1881. That is why 1881 is the date of the
start of the big increase in Jewish emigration >from Russia. Alexander
was much kinder to the Jews than those before or after him-but was
not what we would call kind.

Descendants of Meshulem and Ayreh KRONMAN from Zdunska Wola #general

Martin Kronman <mkronman@...>
 

I am interested in contacting any descendants of Meshulem and
Ayreh KRONMAN. The latter were born in Zdunska Wola in 1897
and in 1909, respectively. Their parents were Benjamin KRONMAN
and Fayge MIKELSON who were married in 1894 in Zdunska Wola. The
Yizkor Book for Zdunska Wola, published in 1968, showed the
Meshulem died in Israel after WWII, his wife and children having
died during the war. It is not known if Meshulem married again
in Israel and had children there.

The Social Security index of deaths showed that Aryeh, or as we
was known in the US as Harry, died in 1997 in New York City. His
application for a Social Security account was dated June, 1947,
showing that he was living in the United States at that time. At
that time he lived in Brooklyn, NY. It is not clear as to whether
he came to the United States Europe before WWII or afterwards,
perhaps via Israel. I have been unable to determine if he married
in the United States and had children.

I would greatly appreciated hearing >from anyone who knew of Harry
(Ayreh) and Meshulem KRONMAN and their descendants. Any suggestions
about a source for such information would also be welcome.

Locating Israeli telephone listings #general

Occasionally I've helped genners look up phone listings in Israel,
but it's something anyone who is familiar with the Hebrew alphabet
can do. The site www.144.bezeq.com opens with brief instructions
in Hebrew. There's a typewriter bar in the lower left of the screen
where you can input the surname, first name, street and town. It
also has a helpful soundex feature that's built in. If you're not
sure what area of the country set the area to 00- the entire country,
and set it to return 20 listings per screen. This site has helped me
locate quite a few relatives. Gamar tov to you all
