Mishpocha Article About Bobruisk #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

In a message I posted earlier, I mentioned "Mishpocha", published in
Vitebsk. Some of their back issues in Russian can be found at:

<http://server2022.virtualave.net/gleb911/>

#10 2001:
<http://server2022.virtualave.net/gleb911/nomer10/10_index.html>

In looking at the table of contents of some of the issues using a
translation URL <http://www.translate.ru/srvurl.asp?lang=en> I found that
this publication has articles about places outside of Vitebsk. Their website
also has a bulletin board where people leave messages about families they
are searching.

The automatic translation of the Russian webpages is a bit "rough", but you
can certainly get the meaning. To give you an idea, just paste this very
large URL into your browser program and give it a try. Read this article
about Bobruisk:

Hi all.

Could this Shmuel Avigdor TOSEFA be the father of my ancestor Dacha
Lea, married to *Mordechai Leib* "Biala" RABINOWITZ? Dacha Lea is
recorded on her daughter's death certificate as being a RIFKIN,
although documents like that tend to have that kind of mistake (or
maybe Shmuel Avigdor TOSEFA's descendats could have taken the name
RIFKIN...)

What's the distance between Karlin and Brest? She was suposed to be
a descendant of the EPSTEIN family of Vilna, and related to Yechiel
and Yaakov ADAFZER(?).

Could this be a lead?

Willamsburgh and Manhattan, 1900-19 #rabbinic

Jomarie <jomarie41@...>
 

BSD"

Hi, I am interested in finding a list of rabbis and shuls or
shtebles in Williamsburgh and Manhattan, possibly in a book, etc.
with descriptions of the different shuls and what types they were
even the little shtebles. And very important, the rabbis that led
them.

Has anyone read any books that detail this?

Also looking for a good book that gives a good description of what
was going on in the Jewish neighborhoods of Brooklyn-Williamsburgh,
Browsville Crown heights Boro Park etc., East side of Manhattan - a
breakdown of where the different types of Jewish people lived and
what sects they were and at what time.

If any one can suggest some sort of material- reading or pictures
would be great also.

Thank you
G.Kozlovsky

Where is Bodendor? #general

DonnDevine@...
 

Hi Connie

I suspect that the obituary may have meant Boden Dorf, Boden
village, and may refer to the Boden located about 3 km north
of Montabaur, which in turn is less than 20 km east of Coblenz,
on the Rhine River.

Given the early date of arrival, you may find helpful the more
specialized German-Jewish SIG and Early American SIG mail lists
at < http://www.jewishgen.org/listserv/sigs.htm >

I've looked at Shtelt Seeker and have too many choices, towns
in Austria, Czech Republic and Germany. While I believe the
town to be in present day Germany, I really have no idea what
to assume. Can any one narrow the list down for me and point
me toward the correct area? >>

While I don't know if this is the name of a shtetl, I can
tell you that it appears to be similar to the surname of
some of my friends, KARPELES, who still have current day
family in Bosnia or Serbia. Their last name is. I
therefore suggest looking around that area for the shtetl.

Best of luck and happy New Year.

Do any of these names sound familiar? I'm thinking perhaps
it's the name of a shtetl. I found this name associated with
a passenger manifest. I'm trying to find out where this is.

Searching: SACHS and/or LAUFER from Thuringia #germany

Shirley Rosen <shirli@...>
 

I posted this request several years ago to no avail, so I am hoping
that new readers or new information among regulars will bring help.
I am searching for information about and the descendents of Isaac SACHS,
born Nov 1859 in Berkach, Thuringia, Germany, second son of Hirsch SACHS
and Sophie EISEMANN. He was the brother of my grandfather, Simon
SACHS.

Simon lived, married and died in Berkach and had children there,
among them my father.

There are good records for births, marriages and deaths for Berkach, but no
mention is made of Isaac after his birth. As far as I know no connection
was maintained with Isaac by family members.

Nevertheless there is a family rumor (so far never verified, but
this is all I know), that Isaac's descendents came to Palestine at some
point with the name LAUFER. This may indicate a daughter or granddaughter
of Isaac marrying a LAUFER. Today, if anyone is still alive, we would be
talking about grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Isaac SACHS.

If anyone has any connection or ancestors named SACHS >from Berkach or
nearby villages, please contact me. I've had great luck with Jewish
Gen/Gersig help before, so I am optimistic again.
