Yosef Bialik #lithuania

Andris V. <andris.vizbaras@...>
 

Seeking information about Yosef Bialik, born 1898 in Odessa, married
and resided in Klaipeda, emigrated to New York City, in particular to
contact descendants in his extended family if possible. My maternal
grandfather saved his daughter Riva >from the Kaunas ghetto in 1943.

My family has corresponded with the extended family of Riva on her
mother's side and they have provided information about the rescue
from their perspective. In contrast we have had no contact at all
with the extended family of Yosef, if any survive. We do not even
know whether Yosef had any siblings or cousins.

Both Riva and her father emigrated to America, separately, and not
long after the war apparently both died, separately.

Riva traveled >from Kaunas to Munich to Bremen and then to New York
City, arriving on December 26, 1946. We believe she attended school
in America for the 1947-1948 school year.

After the school year Riva apparently left the care of her father and
moved to Norwich, Connecticut, perhaps under the care of relatives of
her late mother, Frieda Simon. We seek to contact descendants of her
caregivers in Norwich.

At some point Riva became ill. She entered William Backus Hospital
and died there on November 30, 1948 of chronic nephritis and
hypertension.

We believe Yosef died not long after Riva died, although (after a
diligent search of U.S. records) we have no details.

Selected documents are posted to ViewMate:

Marriage record of Yosef and Frieda,

inconsistent Levite status? #rabbinic

Judith Goldsmith
 

Hello,
I have been researching my Geiger line for many years. I am puzzled by an
inconsistency I found on Geiger matsevahs. My great uncle Charles Geiger's
matsevah indicates that he was a Levite. Yet this designation was not on
matsevahs for his father Aron Geiger, nor for his brothers Chaim Yehuda
Geiger and Abraham Geiger, nor for his cousin Yechezkeil Geiger. Was Charles
mistaken? Aron, Abraham, and Yechezkeil were all rabbis. Can anyone help me
with this puzzle? Thank you.

Re: Searching for names of people murdered in the Shoah from Vinnitsa/Pogrebishche/Berdichev #general

Rose Feldman
 

Try the USHMM they have scans of the lists the Russians made when
they reconquered that area. I found my father's cousin and his family.
I believe Yad Vashem received copies. I also believe they have been
transcribed the lists and the lists are searchable.

Brick Wall - family from Seduva and Ponevezh #lithuania

S. Silberg
 

Hi

My maternal grandmother left Seduva for South Africa in 1910. Her parents
were originally >from Ponevezh. My grandmother told us stories about
eaving Seduva and about her family roots.

Though South African records are usually hard to find, I have found a
trove of information about the family when they immigrated.
However I have never found a shred of information about them when
they lived in Lithuania.

Is it possible that no records survived >from Ponevezh and Seduva
before 1910?

I have searched every way I can, with different spellings,
wild cards, using first names and a few letters etc and never
had any success.

Perhaps an expert who reads this newsletter can help me find out
something about his family.

This is what I know >from the South African documents. The family
name is MEIROWITZ.
Father Harry, Mother Dora and three children. Harry left before
the family and established himself in Potchefstroom, Transvaal.

Passenger Manifest departing Southampton, bound for Cape Town,
in December 1910 lists Dora (age 43 yrs) and children Ada (20 yrs old),
Anna (17 yrs old) and Lavis (12 yrs old).
I feel sure their Yiddish names were Devora/Deviere and the children Etka,
Hanna and Lavis.

In SA they were known as Dora, Ethel, Hilda and Louis. I was told that
Harry's Yiddish name was Hirsch but that is unverified.

I have a copy of a letter written/signed by Harry to the SA Immigration
authorities in August 1910. He verifies the family's expected arrival
and says they were in England for the sake of the children's education.
They settled in Potchefstroom and then movedbto Johannesburg. I have no
information about how long they stayed in England.

Ethel died in Potchefstroom in 1916. Harry and Dora died in the 1930s
in Johannesburg.
There are no headstones for any of these three people!

This is what I know >from my grandmother's conversations.

Dora's maiden name was HACK. She was born in Ponevezh.
Her parents were Yehuda and Liba HACK. Her father was born in Ponevezh.
He was a tailor.

Harry was born in Ponevezh. His parents were Moishe and Cherna
MEIROWITZ. Harry moved to Shadova where was a Rabbi. (This may or
may not be correct.

He became a shop keeper and I don't believe they were religious).

My grandmother Hilda told many stories about the Cossacks coming to
town an what happened to the Jews. She was very clear that they lived
in Seduva however.
I also have a photograph of the family taken in Ponevezh when my
grandmother was about 5 years old. A message on the back is >from
Harry's mother.

It says: Dear Daughter in Law - I send you your pictures and
goes on to say that Sheine came to visit and liked the picture.
I assume they were visiting Ponevezh and Sheine is probably
Harry's sister.

That is all I know. I hope to visit Lithuania and Seduva and Ponevezh
are on the itinerary. I wish I knew something about the family when
they lived there and importantly what happened to those that remained.

Any help would be so appreciated.
