MANTELL/MENDELOVITS Family - Brooklyn, NY #romania

Jordan Ludwig <jordan.ludwig@...>
 

Hello,

In my research, I've uncovered a branch of our family that settled in
Brooklyn, NY that I was unaware of. They are cousins of my Grandfather,
Ludwig (Max) MENDELOVITS, born in Sziget in 1927, who immigrated to
Canada in 1949.

I'm looking for information (genealogical, contact information,
historical information) on the following people who settled in New York.
These people would have come >from the Sziget region of Romania. I would
love to make contact with them.

Dudi Mantell (Mendelovits)
Miki Mantell (Mendelovits)

Miki ran a fruit and vegetable stand on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn.
This is all of the information I have been able to piece together so
far.

The MANTELLs are cousins of the MENDELOVITS side of our family (the
cousins are Hugo and Ludwig MENDELOVITS, originally >from Sziget born in
1924 and 1927, respectively. Their parents were Moszes MEBDELVITS and
Bella DAVIDOVITS, also of Sziget).

Other family names for reference if they fit in your tree are:

Bella Mendelovits (Jeffcott) - Settled in Montreal
Alex Mendelovitch (Tel Aviv, Isreal)
Gabi, Mendelovits (Montreal)
Ludwig Max Mendelovits (Brandon, Manitoba - deceased in 1974)
Hugo Mendelovits (Montreal - deceased in 1987)

I thank you all in advance!

Gesher Galicia Cadastral Map Room - New Zurow (Zhuriv) Maps #poland

Pamela Weisberger
 

Gesher Galicia's cadastral map room has added two new maps for the
town of Zurow (Zhuriv). You can go to the Map Room home page:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org, and scroll down to the town name, or
use the direct links provided below.

Zurow Cadastral Map Sketch 1848:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/zurow-zhuriv-1848-1/

A hand-sketched cadastral map of Zurow (Zhuriv), surveyed and drawn in
1848. Labeled "Part 1", the map is complete in 22 sheets for the small
town and extensive farmlands surrounding its large pond. This map was
probably a second-generation sketch and is near-scale and very
detailed, with many property numbers in the residential area and many
property owners' names throughout.

The market/residential area (which departs somewhat >from the
traditional market "square" pattern) is located on an island formed by
the pond outlets, and was drawn at double scale. We've presented it
as part of the complete cadastral map, but also as a separate link
here:

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/zurow-zhuriv-1848-1w/

This portion of the map is oriented to enable reading the annotations
with west up; an alternate view with north up is also available. An
interesting observation is that the Jewish landowners are all on one
side of the market area (with some Polish names found as well) and the
other side appears to have no Jewish names. All the houses on this
island are wood, but the "Jewish side" has shorter property and bigger
houses. The Jewish cemetery, noted as "Israelitische Freidhof" can be
located on the right hand side of the larger map.

We also offer the "Zurow Cadastral Map Outline 1848/1876," which is an
incomplete cadastral map, surveyed in 1848 and partially revised in
1876. Labeled "Part 2", the map is very incomplete in five cut sheets,
partially lithographed and overdrawn by hand. Only the cadastral area
border is complete, with names of suburban communities labeled and one
farm/residential area partially developed in the drawing.
Nevertheless, this map may be useful to researchers, despite its lack
of detail, which is why we have included it.

We are trying to decipher the word written in Kurrent (Old German
script) on the central building in the market area of the residential
map. There is a flag coming out of the building, which usually
denotes post office, but if anyone knows the translation please
contact me privately.

Thanks, as always, to the GG map room coordinator, Jay Osborn, for his
talented work on creating these re-constructed maps and keeping up
with the pace of acquisitions. The stitching, designing and
uploading of maps -- many of which are scanned in 50 different
sections -- is a time-consuming challenge. If Gesher Galicia has
obtained maps for your towns already, then know that they are in the
queue and we hope to add many more over the next few months.

The value of maps (whether cadastral, hand-drawn memory maps,
Holocaust-era maps, etc.) as integral components of genealogical
research, should not be underestimated. These visual representations
of the places where our ancestors lived should be viewed as graphic
(versus written) portraits of the neighborhoods, economics and culture
of a town >from which a more complete picture of shtetl life can be
gained, to say nothing of their value if one returns to visit.

From Lithuania to Burlington, Vt ~ a Rare Example of Jewish Folk Art #lithuania

Judith27
 

Dear LitvakSig~

Circa 1910, Ben Zion Black, a recently arrived Jewish Lithuanian
immigrant sign painter, was hired by Congregation Chai Adam in
Burlington, Vermont, to paint a two story synagogue mural. The story
behind this mural and the current drive to salvage and preserve
this rare example of Jewish religious folk art can be seen on pages
A13 & A19 in the Jan 31, 2014 print edition of the NY Times and
also read online at

Masia, Bayuk and Chwat #poland

Hazel Dakers
 

I am trying to help someone to link three families, two >from Bielsk and one
from Bialystok.
1. Aaron Israel Michaeliovitch Masia and his wife Ghitel had a son known
both as Israel (and Jules Sonny - which I presume is a later civil name)
born 20 March 1865 in Bielsk, Russia.

He had cousins:

2. The family of Samuel Bayuk b. 10 Apr 1870 Bielsk, Gorodno, Russia. (His
parents were Moses Bayuk and probably Fay Sugarman - though Moses had
several wives and I am uncertain here).

3. The family of Jacob Samuel Molli Chwat b.1888 Bialystok, Poland (artist)
married to Louba Gattin

Living descendants of the Masia family have told me that Bayuk and Chwat
were cousins but they don't know what is the precise connection.

I would appreciate hearing >from any member of this list who has a connection
with any of these families.

JewishGen continues to "pay" dividends years later #general

A. E. Jordan
 

This is just a fun story about the long-term rewards of working with the Discussion
Group.

I have been a supporting member now for many years and over the years have found a
few blood relatives thanks to the reach of JewishGen and the discussion group.
Years ago when I was working on branches of the family that went to South Africa
and Australia I posted a number of messages and had a lot of good luck.

Just this week myself and two of my cousins (one in Israel) got emails >from a local
newspaper editor in Australia asking about the family tree. The original JewishGen
emails about this branch of the family must date back at least to 2008 or 2007!

There is an upcoming celebration in the town in Australia which distant cousins
helped to found in the 1880s. They are going to dedicate a clock in the family
honor and so the local editor is researching the family and its origins. She has
been most kind to not only share with us the results of her research in Australia
adding to the tree but she also just today went to the cemetery outside town and
took pictures of the family tombstones and sent them along to us. She also said
one was too worn to read so she will go back next week with power to try and lift
worn out inscription for the 1890s!

Even though I am half a world away in New York I am excited to see the dedication
and can not wait to see the newspaper articles and photos.

As I said I thought it was a fun little story on the long-term benefits of being
part of JewishGen!
