Living Relatives of Anna KATZ (born HONIG-WILDER) #general

Joyce Eastman
 

I have been researching Anna KATZ, who is a likely sibling of my paternal
grandfather Salomon Wolf WILDER. Anna KATZ was born in Brody, Poland and
was married to Nesanel KATZ (also known as Samuel/Sandor KATZ) and also born
in Brody, Poland. On the 1930 Census for Kings County, NY they are shown
as living at 133 E. 94th Street, Brooklyn, NY. With their children:
Bertha, Clara (Chaje), and Rose (Rozie). Other children noted on the 1925
Census for Kings County, Brooklyn are Bella and William. This is the same
address as noted on my uncle's "emigration declaration form" in Vienna,
Austria dated May 1938, where he states Anna KATZ is his "aunt" living in
the US. Anna KATZ was previously unknown to me as a member of my
HONIG-WILDER family, until I received a copy of this document >from IKG-Wien.
Anna and Nesanel traveled separately to the US. Nesanel arrived in 1914
with his daughter, Bella (listed as "Sandek" on the manifest according to
Ancestry.com), and Anna arrived in 1920 with 4 of their children. Since
Anna is listed as "KATZ" on the manifest it would appear that they were
already married when they traveled to the US.

Anna KATZ is buried at the Mt. Zion Cemetery, located in Maspeth, LI, NY
Date of death was November 15, 1936. Her husband, Nesanel KATZ is also
buried there. Date of death was August 12, 1938. Anna's death was reported
by her daughter, Hesie FUSFELD. I have been unable to make contact with any
FUSFELD relatives either.

Any information you can provide regarding living relatives would be most
appreciated. I have contacted those in the JGFF researching KATZ from
Brody, Poland, but have not had any positive replies as yet.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake
 

Among the many groups who persecuted the Jews of Europe -- the Germans,
Ukraines, Poles -- there was also the Cossacks. "Petlura," a chapter
from the Yizkor book of Tlumacz, Ukraine, takes its name >from the
infamous leader of the Ukrainian pogrom bands, Semion Petlura. Petlura
was a Ukrainian nationalist whose band first fought to drive the
Germans and then the Bolsheviks >from the Ukraine but then were
responsible for pogroms between 1917 and 1919 during which it was
estimated that at least 30,000 Jewish men, women and children were
killed, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. The arrival of a
Cossack band brought panic to Tlumacz: "Suddenly a bugle sounded from
afar, then drums and hoof-beats. There they came! First a rush of
cavalrymen, swords drawn," then came an "army of Cossacks each with a
whip in one hand and a banner in the other." The Cossacks brought
their brand of brutality to Tlumacz, then "without fanfare, they
vacated the town." (Petlura was assassinated in Paris in 1926 by a
jewish anarchist named Sholom Schwartzbard whos parents had been among
15 members of his family murdered during the pogroms).

Family of Rivka, daughter of Menachem Mendel TEITELBAUM, Admor Gorlice #rabbinic

Jay Lenefsky
 

Dear One and All:

I am looking for information about Rabbi Menachem Mendel TEITELBAUM
Admor Gorlice. I searched both in Hebrew and in English on the
internet and didn't find any information about him other than he is
listed on Geni.

It is my understanding that a daughter of his, Rivka was married
(second marriage) to Chaim Yosef Eichenstein, the Ukliver Rebbe.

Who was Rivka's first husband? Rivka had a son >from her first
marriage, Avraham Aharon. During WWII this Avraham Aharon was living
with his mother and stepfather in Munkacz, and the Hungarian
authorities deported him to Poland. Does anyone know What happened
to him?

All the best,

Jay Lenefsky -Israel

Great grandparents in Odessa - ROSENFELT #general

Joan Jacobson <joanajacobson@...>
 

I have been amazed and gratified at the amazing volunteers at JewishGen. I did
not know my maternal great grandparents who lived in Chicago, Anna and Morris
ROSENFELD, but I heard wonderful stories about them. They were born in Odessa
in 1866 to the best of my knowledge. I was hoping to find out if there might
be any information about them or their parents in Odessa.

I have information that Anna arrived >from Liverpool to Philadelphia in 1894
heading to New York to meet Morris who had evidently arrived sometime before.
They had 3 children: Gussie (Ethel), Harry, and Rose, who I believe were born
in Odessa as well. Later children: David, Leo, Goldilyn were born in the U.S.
(NY and Chicago).

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Re: Cuba Restores Oldest Jewish Cemetery #general

Stephen Denker
 

In 2007 while in Havana doing research - for two weeks my wife and I visited
the Guanabacoa cemetery every day and updated JOWBR with information and
photos. This news is good news. The matsevot are all in terrible shape after
years of neglect and hostile climate. However there also is a large Sephardic
cemetery nearby, which because of time, we were not able to visit. Their
cemetery needs restoration as well.

Re: The Family of Lea LANDAU from Nowy Sacz #galicia

Ann Harris <aharr14@...>
 

Dear Jacob:

Most of the available records for Nowy Sacz seem not to be indexed, but
are available on line at the Nowy Sacz Archives to be browsed. You might
try, although time-consuming, to search on your own. On the Gesher
Galicia website, under inventories, under archives in southeastern
Poland, there is a list of all the records in the Nowy Sacz Archive and
links to the original images of the pages in the metrical books and other
books of records for that town. The birth records only go back to 1877,
but you might get lucky or find some clues to help. There are also index
books for these records and you could check these out first and then go
back to the records if you find something interesting. When you are
viewing these records, if you click on the letter "z" at the bottom right
corner, the page is magnified for easier viewing. In the Inventories
section of the Gesher Galicia website, there are also inventories of
Galician records >from other archives and whether these available
records (by towns) have been indexed by JRI-Poland or Gesher Galicia
and there are links to original images in the archives, where available.
