The "Miami Herald" newspaper published an article on Sunday, May 14, 2006,
by Beth Feinstein-Bartl, about a Jewish Brits Club which was co-founded by
Delray Beach, Florida, residents Audrey Spiegel and Ethel Hofman.

The group draws membership of Jewish Brits who now live in Broward and Palm
Beach Counties which are located in South Forida. The group provides
activities and events for the membership and a sharing of their special
Jewish heritage and past.

Moshe Yom Tov Pal and Vilkomir #general

Shuman, Carl H
 

In listening to a 1982 audiotape of my great Aunt Sarah (nee Pal) Gordon
and Great Uncle Jacob (Yonkel) Gordon I learned for the first time that my
great grandfather, Moshe Yom Tov Pal, was born and later buried in Vilkomir
(now, Ukmerge?), Lithuania with his parents. He was a rabbi and spent
almost all of his adult life in Anyksciai. According to my great Aunt, who
is now deceased, he chose to return to Vilkomir after Aunt Sarah and Uncle
Yonkel settled there after their marriage (around 1920). My family and I
will be visiting Vilnius in August. Does anyone know if the Jewish
cemetery that apparently existed in Vilkomir (now Ukmerge?) still exists
and if so, is it possible to visit it?

I also learned >from the tape that my great grandfather, Moshe Yom Tov, had
a younger brother Aaron, who emigrated to the United States. According to
the Ellis Island manifests, it appears that he arrived in New York in 1899.
I didn't even know he existed! My great aunt refers to the fact that he
had children and refers to the "Harrisons." I believe this is the same
family to whom my mother, Reba Paul Shuman, refers as favorite and generous
relatives in Ardmore who owned a pharmacy which she and my grandfather,
Label Paul, visited. If there are any Harrison descendents >from suburban
Philadelphia who may be Pals/Pauls, I would be very interested in hearing
from you.
Finally, my great grandfather, Moshe Yom Tov, had three wives. His first
wife, Rachel Binder, was my greatgrandmother. His second wife was Aunt
Sarah's mother. I do not know her first name. I learned >from the tape
that the second wife's maiden name was Barron/Baron and that her parents
were wealthy, in the lumber and fishery business, settled along the Latvian
border, and raised Aunt Sarah's sister who remained in Europe, became a
physician, and apparently perished in the Shoa. If anyone has any
Barron/Baron-Pal/Paul connections >from Lithuania and Latvia, I would be
interested in hearing >from you as well.

Thank you.

R' Shalom Mordechai HaCohen SCHWADRON #rabbinic

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Dear Friends,

I am seeking help with family SCHWADRON.

from a 1921 Ellis Island entrance to New York &#150; Simon and Marif
SCHWADRON (who became known as Samuel and Mary) were born in
Podkamen (was Galicia, then Poland, now Ukraine) and last place of
residence was Cwitowa.

Simon was born in 1892 and Mary 1893 - I have knowledge of their
descendants.

The family wish to know if they are in fact descended >from the
famous Rabbi Shalom Mordechai HaCohen SCHWADRON &#150; born in 1835 in a
village in the Zelochov district in Eastern Galicia.

We do know that Simon&#146;'s parents were Joshua and Beatrice,
apparently they too came to the United States, although I cannot
find their entry details, I presume their original names would have
been Aviezer and Beila? &#150; please feel free to correct me&#133;.. they
must have been born in abt. the 1860&#146;s-70&#146;s.

Does anyone have a SCHWADRON family tree that bears the above names?

Additionally we would like to find out if Simon had other siblings,
we only know of one, a sister called Regina born in 1901.- she also
entered Ellis Island in 1921.

Any information on the SCHWADRON family would be gratefully
appreciated.

Thank you

Re: Details, Please! JGFF, Please! [was: Searching WESTREICH family] #general

Bubby <yeruchem18@...>
 

To be more specific, I am looking for relatives of Minnie WESTREICH.

I found a 1900 census listing for a WESTREICH family in Manhattan listing
the parents as Samuel and Pearl, children as Dora, William, Minnie, Michael
and Dora. There may have been two brothers born later named Louis and
Milton. The parents and oldest 4 children are listed in the census as having
come >from "Austria." Specific town is unknown. Samuel and Pearl are not
found in later censuses.

In the 1930 census is listed a William married to Ida COHEN. Michael is not
married as of 1930 and lives with Louis and Milton, both listed as brothers.

Minnie Westreich married Henry SCHALL in 1912. The Schall family came >from
"Austria" as well, again the town is unknown. Henry was the son of Jacob
and Dora.

Fraida Cohen

(P.S. to Roger: I thought the Schall surname was already on my JGFF list and
now I see that it was not there. Thanks for bringing this to my attention;
I added it.)

Re: Podkamien #poland

Ron Herrmann <ron_herrmann@...>
 

from my experience, those "stone" names in Polish
(i.e. last-names that end with "Kamien") are probably
a translation of the German "Stein" last-names into
Polish (e.g. GoldStein, FeuerStein, etc).

If you are researching your family tree, also search
for the last-name "unterstein".

In my case, my Grandmother's last name was
ROGOWYKAMIEN which means "Corner Stone" in Polish. It
was a translation of the German ECKSTEIN last name.
