Dear Fellow Researcher of Rav-SIG,

Would anyone know detail on the descendants of the Pnei Yehoshua, or
know of someone that I can ask that is not part of the online community?

My daughter-in-law's family has a tradition that they descend >from the
Pnei Yehoshua via their g-g-g-gm, Shprintza WINITZ (1884 - 1972),
daughter of Yehoshua Winnitz (1849 - c1917) of Lviv, Ukraine and Yetta
Elka GOLDMAN (born 1848) of Rozdil, Ukraine.

Shpritza's paternal grandparents were >from Lviv, Ukraine:
Leib Stoelzer and Reisel Winitz (born 1815), daughter of Berl (1765 -
1825) & Sprinze (1778 - 1853) of Lviv

Shpritza's maternal grandparents were >from Rozdil, Ukraine:
Eisig Diamand (1826 - 1878), son of Samuel & Marjim
and Ettel Goldman (1828 - 1898)

Any ideas or direction would be appreciated.
Wishing you all success in all your endeavors and a Shana Tova,

The term is actually

It is another term used for a landsmanshaften.It is a club, society or

Help request: Martin STERNBERG of Breslau / Martin STERNE of the Bronx #poland

Alexander Watson <a.watson.genas@...>
 

Hello again,

Thank you very much to the many people who replied to my call for help
about finding out whether the grave of the Lieutenant Martin
STERNBERG, in Mennevret, Northern France, might be the last resting
place of a member of my family. I believe that I have thanked
everybody personnally, but if I did forget anyone, please forgive me.

A forgotten & mysterious address in New York, in one of the letters
that my great-grandfather in Breslau sent to my grandmother on her
arrival in Great Britain in 1939, and the unfailing helpfulness of
Andre GUENTHER allowed me to trace my great-great-uncle Martin
STERNBERG to the Bronx in 1926, where he became Martin STERNE. His two
children Vera (LIEBERMAN) and Stanley Herman STERNE only died quite
recently. Stanley has descendants.

With heartfelt thanks

Hello,

You can write to kapost@oesta.gv.at . And obtain all what they have in
their Austrian military archives.

I asked my father for the 1914-18 war military record and got the whole
file for 50 Euro.

Good Luck!

Since Abraham lived in Zaleszczyki, he most likely served in the
Austrian Army earlier when he took his brother's place. He was born
about 1860 and his oldest child was born about 1885. So the earlier
army service would have ended a couple of years before 1885.

I searched military records for Austria at the Family History Library in
Salt Lake City. They all seem to be for officers only and I couldn't
find him in those records.

Are there any records of men taking the place of someone else in the
Austrian Army? Could he possibly have been drafted into the Russian
Army? Are there any records?....

Re: Name change search in Israel #galicia

Billie Stein <billie.stein@...>
 

The All Israel Database (AID) on the IGRA website
http://genealogy.org.il/ has name changes for both the British
Mandate period and early Israel Statehood (until 1954). There is no
Adam Rostal listed. There is one Rostal (Yosef) who changed his name
in 1948 to Tal. If Adam changed his name it was after 1954.

The AID also shows that Edward Rostal was a candidate (but never in a
realistic position on the party list) for the Knesset 8 times - >from the
2nd through through the 9th (1951, 55, 59, 61, 65, 69, 73 and 77).
In 1951, 55 and 59 he was a member of the Progressive party, the
Liberal party in 61, and after that the Independent Liberal party. His
occupation in 1951 and 55 was clerk, and after that journalist. Edward
Rostal's name is not on the Knesset website, which has a list of all MK's,
past and present.

Karol Kalman Rosthal, a commercial agent b. 1872 in Tarnow, Poland,

Edward Rostal had a wife by the name Ella b. 1911. I don't know her
maiden name. They were Holocaust survivors and moved to Israel (likely
when it was still called Palestine) after the war. They were already married
before arriving in Israel.

Edward Rostal was an editor of the Polish-language paper "Nowiny" and
later "Nowiny i Kurier." He was a candidate to Knesset at least three times,
in 1955, 1965 and 1969 and to General Council in 1959 but I am unable
to verify if he won the respective elections. He was a member of the
Independent Liberal Party in the 60-ties.

Edward Rostal died in January 1980 and his wife Ella is not alive either.
They had one son Adam but he changed the name Rostal to a Hebrew one.
He may know more about his father and have valuable documents but I
cannot find him. Adam is married.

Does anyone know if there is any way to trace a name change in Israel so
that I could look for Adam or his descendants under their current Hebrew
surname?....

late, I have had no response when send messages to the above email

Any help would be appreciated.

Michael, I have been advised by AJR that Lilian Levy has retired, but
