Levenson Family of Piltene #courland #latvia

Panthersfan27@...
 

Hi,

I am new to this SIG. My g-g grandfather was Isaac Levenson, original Isar
Levenson. I knew for some time that he was >from Courland but never where. I
found out >from a cousin in his wife's family the Blumberg's of Piltene that his
parents were Isaac and Hanne Levenson. Isaac was the son of David and Linna
Levenson of Piltene and David the son of Isaac of Piltene. The family went to
Bay City, Michigan and then went their seperate ways >from there. If anyone
knows of this family please contact me.

Also, does anyone live near the Bay City Jewish Community Cemetery? Isaac
and Hanne are buried there and the pictures of their tombstones on the JOWBR
aren't clear as to their hebrew names. I would appreciate any help possible.
Thanks!

R' Izrael ZYLBERSZTEJN of Przedborz, Poland #rabbinic

Steven D. Bloom <sbloom@...>
 

I am looking for information on Rabbi Izrael ZYLBERSZTEJN (exact
spelling is not important) of Przedborz or Widoma, who was listed
as officiating rabbi on many of my family's marriage records of
Przedborz in the 1850s.

In particular, I am wondering whether he was ever Av Beit Din, or
any type of Hassid. I'd also be interested in any genealogical
information on him, since I believe he may be connected to my
BLUMENSON family, which was the family of Rabbi Yakov of Widoma
(1796-1886).

In early 19th century Galician death records the column for recording
the name of decedent's father often contains the word that appears to
be "selbss" or "selbst". Does this mean that the decedent appeared
himself (or herself) with no one able to inform who the father was?
It could mean "the same".

So Moses ben Nathan's father would only be known as Nathan.
Just guessing.

Re: PECKER/STEIN in Brooklyn #general

Ben Milder
 

In a case like this, where you have a first name and an approximate
date of birth for someone living in the U.S., you can use Steve
Morse's birthday pages, which allow for searching of U.S. public
records databases on outside websites.

Go to http://www.stevemorse.org/birthday/privateeye.html . If you
enter a first name along with a year and month of birth, you do not
have to enter a surname. You may also enter a location if you wish.

The results will show you a person's full name, towns where he/she has
lived, age, and "possible relatives."

I searched for "Malka" born October 1975 and there is a listing for a
Malka in Brooklyn along with a 56-year-old named Rachel. You can try
changing the search inputs to get additional results.

Once you have a possible match, you can use another Steve Morse
search, Google, or an internet white pages site to get an address or
phone number. If this fails, you could also purchase the information
from People Finders.

While in Israel recently, I met a gentleman who does not have access
to the internet, and has authorized me to do research on his behalf.
( I live in Los Angeles). Meir STEIN who is now 60, came to Brooklyn
in the mid 70s and married the former Rachel PECKER, whose father was
the late Rabbi Dov Pecker. They had two daughters. The first
daughter, who he is almost certain (explanation to follow) was named
Malka, was born in either in 1975 or early 1976. >

Re: Where is M. Furjaszeg? #general

Judith Diamond
 

I suspect 'M. Furjaszeg' is Vrsek to be found at 49°11' 18°09', which is now in
Slovakia. They would sound similar if the V is read as an F and the G is read
as a K. The s in Vrsek has a symbol over it implying a more multiple sound.
I imagine it was once in Moravia and many of the towns there are prefixed
Moravske or just M. It can be found via Stetl Seeker.
