Dear Anne,
I noticed in your signature the name GLUCK of Debrecen. I had in Debrecen a
first cousin named Sara Iren KLEIN who married a Chanoch GLUCK with at least
two children. They all perished in the Holocaust. Do you relate to them? If
so I would appreciate if
you would share with me the information you have about their family.
Best regards Yehuda

Dear Genners

After much research and a lot of wonderful help >from the folks at this
group, I think I've finally made a good connection between My GGF's family
and the towns of Veke and Kiraly Helmec. I now have good documentation
that
puts this family in these locations. I have read the Yizkor book thru
Jewish
Gen for Kiraly Helmec and have found many Rosenbaums >from Kiraly Helmec
listed as perished in the Holocaust. My question now is if any one out
there
knows anything about these Rosenbaums >from Kiraly Helmec. My GGF was the
son
of Mendel (Abraham) Rosenbaum and Sali Gluck. He had at least 5 siblings-
Esther who married Herman Fabian, Czili Rosenbaum, Moriscz Rosenbaum, Mart
on
Rosenbaum, Franni? Rosenbaum. Their births spanned 1858-1867 approx. I
think
my GGF was the only one to come to the US and settle in NY about 1883. I
understand that there was a reunion about ten years ago of survivors and
their families >from this region held in Israel. I'm hopeful maybe someone
will recall the Rosenbaums.

Dear Galitzyaners,

One more letter on this subject.

I have mentioned in my previous letter name of Dawid Lindenbaum, who >from
the previous position of lessee became the owner of the lands and forestry
in Boryslaw.

Below is quotation >from Tadeusz Porembalski "Wspomnienia nafciarza" (Memoirs
of the Oilman), Warszawa, PWN, 1978.

"Majority of the Boryslaw's oil exploration works have been carried out on
the Lindenbaum's possessions'.
Oil companies have paid to Dawid Lindenbaum (and following his death, to his
successors) 20% of the gross value of all the recovered oil. It means that
Lindenbaums actually got all his crude oil for free, and just before the
outbreak of WWII, they have recieved quantity of 200 oil cisterns (about
2,000 metric tons) valued at 400,000 Polish zloty per month.

[Based on 1939 value of US $1 = 5.31 Zloty this equals to US $75,330 (1939)
or close to US $1 milion in 2004 (assuming coefficient 13.26)]

On top of this Lindenbaums were charging oil companies equivalent of 0.3 kg
of the wheat for each square metre of the area occupied by the oil well.

Lindenbaums have been also owners of the other propeties and lands including
huge amounts of the forestrys, and oil the refinery ["Gazolina"] in Hubicze
(village near Boryslaw on the way to Drohobycz)".

My father was born in England and I am hoping to conduct some research

BUCKSTOLSKY. Unfortunately those are for the most part are common
names. I know >from the 1901 census that one family lived in Bethnal

I would appreciate any advice as to places to visit to obtain records

How to find photo/painting of a particular rabbi? #galicia

Ted Gostin
 

I am trying to locate either a photograph or a painting/drawing of Rabbi
Simon SCHREIBER of Krakow, Poland. He was born in 1821 in
Bratislava, Slovkakia, and died in 1883 in Krakow. He served as rabbi
in Krakow >from 1860 to his death, and >from 1842 to 1860 of
Mattersdorf, Austria.

We think that he might have been the brother of a family member. We
have a photograph of the family member's brother, and want to
compare it to known images of Rabbi Simon SCHREIBER to see if
they seem to be a match.

Ted Gostin
[MODERATOR NOTE: please don't forget to sign your posts with name and location]

Any ideas of where I could look for images of this particular rabbi?

Records #latvia

Edna Bonkes <e-jbonkes@...>
 

Yes Arlene you are right - the Latvian Archives did suggest that I
contact the Lithuanian archives! They told me that they had no records
on MOSESSTAM, but if they found some would get back to me. That was
over a year ago. Perhaps I will get back to them again. I have no
personal records to say where he was born, a brother of mine told
me he was born in Courland, that info came >from my father.

Perhaps the entries you found on MOSESSTAM were related to my Gf.

Thank you for your reply.
Best Wishes.
