Orfinger family - Warszawa circa 1890 #poland

Dave Orens
 

Does anyone know if there was a directory published for the city of Warsaw
any time in the 1890's? I have located an 1870 version which is fortunately
eavailable online at genealogyindexer.org but have not been able to find
any references to an 1890's version (available online or elsewhere).

I am looking for someone who I believe died around 1896 and thus would not
likely appear in the 1897 Russian census (though I would also be
interested to know if anyone knows of a location for that document as well).

Regards

David Orens

FW: Translation request (Russian to English) - Rozenberg Death certificates #poland

Lala Zalcensztajn Goldfarb <lalaz@...>
 

I've posted on ViewMate a request for the translation of two death certs
issued in RADZYN Podlaski for my maternal gggrandparents: DAWID ROZENBERG
(1886) and CHANA LAIA ROZENBERG nee GOLDWASER (1887).

The ViewMate address is:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/
and the files are VM15134 and VM15135:

The direct URLs are:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=15134
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=15135

According to Dawid's death cert he left behind only 3 daughters, wife
not mentioned. Strangely, a year later in Chana Laia's death cert there
appear 7 children left behind (2 sons and 5 daughters). I know of 2 of them:
Lejzor (my ggrandfather who lived in Wlodzimierz Wolinski and Zamosc)
and Marjem (1st wife of my grandfather Wolf Goldfarb, married in Miedzyrzec
Podlaski and lived in Lodz). I never knew the names of their
siblings, some of them left for Antwerp. It's possible that one daughter
was married
to a Shulman in Wlodzimierz Wolinski.

I have received different versions of the given names by several Russian
and Ukrainan acquaintances and others with Russian knowledge. Therefore, I
will appreciate receiving all the given names and also confirmation if Chana
Laia's parents were: Dwosza (is it Dwojra??) and Shikla (what kind of
name is this - Lejzor's birth cert (1850) states his mother was Lej daughter
of Szlomo.)

Thank you in advance for your assistance and efforts in translating >from
the handwritten Russian.

Muizenberg - The Shtetl by the Sea

Many ex-Muizenbergers and friends of Muizenberg generously contributed
memoirs and photographs to the Memories of Muizenberg Exhibition
currently on at the Jewish Museum in Cape Town, but many did not
respond at the time and may have more than a few regrets.
Now Hedy Davis, Chief Researcher on that Project, Editor of the
comprehensive photo caption document detailing over 1250 images
received and the Co-ordinator of the exhibition text, is engaged in
writing a book, tentatively titled, "The Shtetl by the Sea". It will
incorporate much of the material that it was not possible to include
in the Exhibition, the many wonderful memoirs received with the
permission of those who sent them in, and historical research into the
Jewish Community of Muizenberg in which she is currently engaged.
There is great interest in the early beginnings of the vibrant village
that Muizenberg became, and particulars of when grandparents and
parents arrived there, are urgently required. Information about
everyday life is sought, describing how the village annually changed
from the bustling premier holiday resort in South Africa to a quiet
community where life went on regardless in the off season. It is in
recording the smallest details of that way of life, that we ensure a
treasure house of stories is not lost to future generations.
All those who have not submitted their memoirs are invited to do so to
hedy.davis@gmail.com or alternately to Hedy Davis, P.O. Box 909,
Wendywood, South Africa, 2144.

KAMBER in Siaulai #lithuania

Jules Feldman
 

According to notes left by Yasha KAMBER, his cousin Abraham "Abrusha "
KAMBER born 1897 was a doctor in Shavel in the 1930s and later in the
ghetto there .

Yasha tells that Abrusha was married to a non-Jewish woman and the wife and
son survived WW2 and the Holocaust. Abrusha perished in Muhldorf
Concentration Camp on 6 December 1944

I will be grateful for any information about Dr. KAMBER and any suggestion
about how to trace his son. I suspect that the wife went back to her family
and her maiden name.

Help needed with translating from Lithuanian #lithuania

john_gross@...
 

Dear all

I would appreciate help in translating several documents that came with a
Lithuanian passport for Smuelis Kasrelzon. I think that all 4 documents
are written in Lithuanian.

All 4 documents are on Viewmate and will remain for 7 days:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate

The file references are:
VM14996
VM14997
VM14998
VM14999

The direct Viewmate addresses are:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/memberadmin/submissionsedit.asp?ID=14999
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/memberadmin/submissionsedit.asp?ID=15000


The image sizes are deliberately reduced to fit in with Viewmate
requirements but full sized images are available if that will help.

I am particularly interested in any references to his parents or
grandparents as I am trying to confirm the links to my family.

Many thanks in anticipation.
