Dear fellow members of the Bessarabia SIG,

My father Boris Kidel was probably born in Kishinev (1923). He told me
next to nothing about his family, and I barely know his parents. His
paternal family had lived in Kishinev for several generations. His
grandfather Samuel had 8 children. There is a branch of the family,
descended >from Moses Kidel, who emigrated to the USA ­ well Max Kidel did
­ and changed their name to Chidel. I have found various Chidels via
Facebook and a relative in Israel. My paternal grandmother Anita (Neta)
was born Gluzgold (sometimes spelt Gluszgold) and she was born in Orgeev.
Her brother Lyuba Gluzgold owned the flour mill in Orgeev, gave funds to
the local hospital etc. He was murdered with his wife by the Romanians or
Nazis in 1942 or 1942. There is a photograph of him and his wife in the
mill in the Orgeev Yizkor Book.

I have been working via Jewishgen for well over ten years and had great
results ­ discovering various branches of the family in the USA and
elsewhere, as well as photos etc.

If there is anyone out there with information about the Kidels in
Kishinev, the Gluzgold family >from Orgeev, or Motl Fichman (of Orgeev)
who was my great ­grandfather on the Gluzgold side? I have Fichman
relatives, including Boris Fichman who had a bicycle shop in Odessa, and
was captured by the Nazis in Nice, and transported to Auschwitz, and
Sophie Fichman, who was active SR revolutionary, imprisoned in Siberia,
and emigrated to the USA ­ she is buried in Queens, NY. I have photos
of them.

I was also told by a cousin in Moscow that the Kidel family were Sephardi.
Anyone with information about the Sephardi community in Kishinev? The
Gluzgold were Ashkenazi.

I am also a little serious about two dishes my Orgeev grandmother made,
and which I still make in my own way: anchovy butter and aubergine salad
­ the latter with onions. I make it more the Lebanese/ Turkish/ Greek way,
without onions, just garlic, olive oil and sometimes some parsley and
tahini.

Yefim Kogan, who does such sterling work, recommended I post this
information/ these questions. I hope and pray that there might be come
comeback!

Best wishes to all

Mark Kidel

PROGRAM ON A PERSONAL CONNECTION TO THE REFUGEE SHIP STRUMA - DESTROYED FEBRUARY 24, 1942 #romania

Joel Ives
 

PROGRAM ON THE SHIP STRUMA

My quest to identify the guest of honor in a photograph of a family
gathering taken in 1924 in Harlem, NY led to an expedition to Istanbul,
Turkey seeking the answer to a Holocaust mystery. On February 24, 1942 a
ship with 769 Romanian Jewish refugees was attempting to sail to Palestine
on a decrepit former cattle barge and was blown up in Black Sea. Only one
person survived, David STOLIER. About 60 years later, this largest maritime
loss of civilians in the Black Sea in WWII was a forgotten event. A
gathering in Washington DC of relatives of those aboard the Struma in 1999
was followed by an event in Turkey and, an underwater search for the remains
of the ship in 2000. This led to a book, "Death on the Black Sea" written by
Douglas FRANTZ, a New York Times reporter and an HBO Documentary. Each year
since, there has been renewed interest in this tragedy.

I am a practicing architect in Fair Lawn, New Jersey and graduated from
CCNY School of Architecture. I have been tracing my family roots since the
1970's and have identified more than 4200 people to whom I am related
including three who died aboard the Struma. My Romanian roots are from
Iasi, Buhusi and Bucharest. My family names are ITZKOWITZ, ISKOWITZ,
ITICOVICI, and MENDEL.

Polish Birth Entry Translation - ViewMate #general

Debbie Raff
 

It would be appreciated if those who can translate Polish would stop by
Viewmate and check VM38347.
It is a portion of an 1878 birth entry for Nowy Sacz, Poland. I know the
main facts, but listed a couple of questions I can't answer.
For example there is an addition with the year 1879 in the Comments (last
column) I wondered what it regarded...perhaps, a death??

I am searching for descendants of the author of chapters in the
Losice Poland Yizkor book. It was published in Tel Aviv over 50 years
ago in 1963. The book's table of contents states that Lielb HOFER
(the author of these chapters) lived in the city of Holon (Israel) at the time.
I am looking for any information on Liebl HOFER's descendants in Israel
or the US, as he may be related to my wife's family.

Thank you.

FW: [rom-sig] Bob Wascou #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear Bessarabers,

With great sadness I want to let you know that Bob Wascou, a person who did a lot for all Bessarabian
researches departed.

Bob Wascow coordinated one of the most important projects for our region - Bessarabia Vital Records.
His team gave us an opportunity to find Birth, Marriage and Death records for our ancestors. I started
working for Bob more than 10 years ago, when the project was part of Romania SIG. In a short while
he gave me translate records >from my parent's town - Kaushany, where I found a birth record for my
great grandfather, and records for many other relatives. That project was an eye opener for me, and
for many other researchers.

Later, in 2009 in Philadelphia I met Bob in person. He helped me starting another project - Bessarabia
Revision List. In 2013 conference in Boston Bob Wascou participated in our Bessarabia SIG meeting,
where he presented Vital Records Project and that he needs more translators to finish that project and
work on other projects...

Our Bessarabia SIG will complete hard work at Bessarabia Vital Records project started by Bob Wascou,
our friend and teacher.

Our deep condolences to Bob's family.

Dear fellow Rom-SIGgers,

It is with heavy heart that I must tell you that our wonderful Research Coordinator, Bob Wascou, has
passed away. He was truly the very soul of the Rom-SIG for so many years. His superb managerial
skills, kindness, gentleness, thoughtfulness and devotion to the SIG were beyond
compare. Those of us who have had the privilege of working with, and
knowing him, for so many years are deeply saddened, but determined to
keep the SIG running in a way that will honor Bob's memory. It will
take a little while till we pull matters together, but we hope that
you will all bear with us. We hope to set up a special fund for the
Rom-SIG with an eye to doing just that by allowing us to continue our research efforts.
We will let everyone know when that has been arranged with JewishGen.

There is a very beautiful tribute to Bob, placed on his Facebook site, by his son.

May his memory be a blessing for us all!
