Looking for info on Senya (Grisha) Ryndzyunski from Vilnius #lithuania

nathalieried@...
 

Shalom to all,

I would like to find information about Senya Ryndzyunski >from Vilnius, who was
the leader of a Jewish Communist resistance group in Vilnius during WW2.
All I know is that he later emigrated to Israel and was interviewed in yiddish
in Beer Sheva where he was living in the 1960's.

I can't read Hebrew or Russian well enough to look for him in other sites than
the English-speaking ones. I would be particularly interested in genealogical
information (his patronymic for instance).

Thanks in advance to all reseachers who are willing to share their
information with me,

<< From: "Dr. Menahem Luz" <mervyn1@bezeqint.net>
Could anyone tell me whether the 19th century records for Jews in the town
of shavli (Siauliai) are so few because they were destroyed
or because they have not yet been transcribed\and or published on
jewishgen.org> >

Carol Baker, Siauliai District Coordinator, can probably give you a
better answer but, suffice to say, the majority of the Siauliai 19th
century records were destroyed over the years by fires, wars, floods,
thefts, etc. I believe that most, if not all, of the 19th century records
have been translated by LitvakSIG.

The Siauliai District Internal Passport records, 1919-1940 are in process
of being translated. If interested, please contact me privately.

The Siauliai District Research Group (SUG) has been acquiring, translating
and distributing records >from this area since 1998. Currently we have
50,648 records on the All Lithuania Database. 4,848 additional records have
been distributed to contributors and will not appear on the ALD until late
in 2008, and more are awaiting translation. These lists are revision lists,
tax and voter lists, resident lists, etc. There are no vital records (BDM)
before 1922 available at any of the Lithuanian archives for any of the towns
in the District. They were destroyed in WWII. There may be some vital
records available after 1922 but we have not made any effort to get them.
You would do better to write directly to the archives for those records
concerning your family.

Fw: ID Photos VM11009 and VM11010 #france

Louise Gross
 

Dear Genners,

I would appreciate any help identifying the people in the photos VM11009
and VM11010. They are pictures of my Uncle, Aunts and their families.
The name of the studio, printed on the back of the picture of a woman
with a little girl, was P. MANDEL located in Paris, France. There is
also a penciled notation (4-21/6) which could be a date, maybe.

I know that my mother's brothers, Leibl and Reuven TER, emigrated to
France >from Poland before WWII. Leibl TER and his wife Elke are listed
in Klarsfeld's Deportation of French Jews and I have a copy of the
receipt, signed by my uncle, for money and valuables taken >from him at
Drancy.

There is no mention of a Reuven TER, but a David Wolf TER is listed both
in Klarsfeld's book and in YadVashem's list of victims >from Auschwitz.
Yad Vashem's list gives the name of his parents as Hersch and Leah TER
(my grandparents) and his place of birth as Poreba, Poland in 1904.

If anyone can tell me anything about these photos or identify the
subjects, I would be very grateful. If anyone knows of any TERs
living in France whose ancestors are >from Poland, that would be
miraculous.

Please contact me at lulux@optonline.net .

Sincerely,
Louise Gross

R' Lewis LEVIN, London 1915 #rabbinic

Rachel Poole <rachel.poole3@...>
 

Hello

I am new to this group and have limited experience in researching
family history outside of the UK where I live.

I am trying to find further information on the family of Lewis LEVIN
who was my great grandfather

Like many others he left Russia around about 1880-90 and came to
England with his wife Sarah Rachel. They are known to be living in
Liverpool in 1901 with a daughter Ether, and sons Moses and Nathan.
Lewis is documented as being a preacher.

At some point they went to London where Sarah died in 1915. At that
point they were living in 16 Great Alie Street and I have found that
there was also a synagogue at 40 Great Alie Street at that time. I
know Lewis was a Rabbi.

The synagogue no longer exists - Can anyone help me to find out
whether Lewis was the Rabbi of the Great Alie Street Synagogue,
where he was a Rabbi in Liverpool, or perhaps how to trace him back
through the Russian Archives. Unfortunately we do not have any town
names.

Regards
Rachel Poole

Announcements in Archived Journals #rabbinic

mehadrin@...
 

I was browsing on the website hebrewbooks.org which has many out of
print works in the form of .pdf files and found a whole section of
scholarly journals. There were many genealogical treasures available
there, but my attention was caught by the value of the announcements
at the beginning and end of issues as a source of information. Some
of the pre-war journals were designed to include both scholarly
articles and community news, and opinion pieces about what was
happening in the world.

Among the items I saw:

Beth Eked Sefarim---monthly journal for all areas of Torah study and
strengthening of the Jewish faith--- published by Rabbi Yosef Shimon
Pollak in SatuMare Romania. Vol. 9 issue 1-2 5690 (1929)

Announced on the back page----

Our Sages say: The Holy One blessed be He does not rest His presence
except upon the families of established pedigree in Israel
(Kiddushin 40) and we therefore announce that anyone who wishes to
know his ancestry for generations should contact Rabbi Chaim Dov
Gross, the head of a yeshiva in Munkacz and he will receive his
family tree. The author has already received his credentials as an
expert in the field of genealogy with his work 'Chayei Aryeh' about
the family of Rabbi Leib Tzuntz of Plock, printed at the beginning
of the book Melo Ha'omer, and the Chaye Yehonasan about the family
of Rabbi Yonasan Eibeschutz and many other works. Therefore anyone
who has a family tree and wishes to know about its veracity should
turn to him. Since he is currently in the final stages of preparing
a book about the biographies of great rabbis and their genealogies
from days of the gaonim until the present day, anyone who has
information about the life stories of great rabbis or of family
genealogy should be kind to write to him and his name will be
mentioned in the book in appreciation.

Rabbin Ch. Ber Gross MUNKACEWA Slovenska

In Hachaim, published by Ch. Chaskel Schlussel of Munkacs issue no.
3, I found the following announcement:

Krakow: To the rabbis and scholars of our time in their towns, may
they live with G-d's help!

I wish to announce that I will shortly be publishing my book Anshei
Shem Zemaneinu (Men of prominence of our time) which will include
the biographies of the rabbis and scholars and halachic authorities
of our time and their genealogies. Therefore I ask that anyone who
wishes to be recognized in this book or to have his ancestors
recognized forgive my troubling him to send me all the relevant
information, together with a pre-subscription to compensate for the
expense of printing, to Moshe Sternberg, Cracow, Gazava Street 11,
publisher.

There are also many Mazel Tov greetings for weddings which include
mention of other family members and relatives. Altogether there is a
gold mine of information in these journals which are exceedingly
rare, and it can now be mined without traveling to the major
libraries.
