Camp on Szentendre Island #hungary

gluckpast@...
 

H-SIGers,

I should be most grateful if anyone could suggest a possible source of
one or more images of a pre-war summer camp site for young people,
situated near the villages of Horåny and Szigetmonostor on Szentendre
Island in the Danube, north of Budapest.

Two of my aunts were taken >from the Budapest ghetto, marched to the
river, taken to the island by barge and forced to dig ditches,
ostensibly to disrupt the progress of Russian tanks. It was clear from
the small size of the bunks in the wooden barrack blocks in which they
were housed that the buildings had previously been used for children
and I should like to include a photograph in a family history that is
nearing completion.

Re: Eugenie Serge NOSSOF nee PRAVINA #general

Arlene <arlene@...>
 

I have found the deceased estate of Eugenie Serge NOSSOF nee PRAVINA in the
1974 Cape Town, South Africa, Masters Office files which are on the Mormon
website.

I would like to know if she was born Jewish. Her husband was Paul NOSSOF. I
haven't found Jewish burials for either of them.

She was born in 1895 in Brest Litovsk (now in Belarus) (incidentally also
where my paternal grandfather was born). She died in 1974 in the Ladies
Christian Home in Cape Town (but this does mean that she was necessarily
Christian). Her only child appears to have been Mrs. Ludmila CLARE who was
living in Poole, Dorset, England at the time of her death.

There is no charge for burial nor cremation fees in the Liquidation &
Distribution account.

SCHECHTMANs from Otaci,Moldova #general

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

Hi all,
using jewishgen's Bessarabian Revision List's data, I compiled an
alternative tree, below, to my SCHECHTMAN ancestors. Most of the names
in the revision list match the data I was hander over, other than one
or two inconsistencies.

I am hoping that other genners can connect to this extendend
Schechtman ancestors branch, allowing me to find new connections, and
luckily helping me determine which data is accurate.

Oldest ancestor: Zindel Schechtman

Son: Mordechai, married to Ester Chaia

Mordechai and Ester Chaia's children:

- David (Dov) Ber (married to Kheika)
- Yitzchak (married to Frida) - one of their sons: Mordechai
- Moshe (married to Tsirla) - one of their sons: Mordechai
- Sarah
- Chana
- Perla
- Reyza
- Liba

David (Dov) Ber and Kheika's children:
- Gitla
- Beila
- Uziel (children: Moshe, David (Dov) Ber, Alexander Zisse, Eti, Noach)

I descend >from Moshe (my great grandfather), the son of Uziel. Moshe's
family settled in Sokiryany, of the many jewish small villages near
the Dniester river.
Mordechai (son of Zidenl)'s children birth dates span 1816 to 1838.

Thanks,

Looking for *any* information on Abraham SALATA (possibly named: Avrom Ben Chaim) #sephardic

Izhar Atzmon <izharatzmon@...>
 

My great grand father Abraham SALATA (Avrom Ben Chaim) point of origin
not known.

He as born around 1850-1870 and spoke Ladino, Russian and Polish. May
have either arrived (himself) or been the offspring of newly arrived
Sepharadim. Family was well known in Saloniki until World War II
Abraham is said to have strted out >from Tifilis >from where he migrated
West. He was alldgedly a pedler who had a horsedrawn wagen.

His wife (Charlotte FEDERSTOCK (Lotte) was also known as Leah Federstock)
and him arrived in the Grand Duchy of Warsaw (>from Kiev) sometime during
the 1890's.  They had 3 sons.  My Grand Father- Chaim David (date of
birth 1898)...next in line was Meyer, and the youngest son was Roman. 

He died of unknown causes at an unknown date while still a young man. 
His wife and 3 young children somehow survived until she was able to open
a live poultry shop in the Ghetto.  This business was thriving (1925-26). 
At an unknown date she married a man who was considerably younger than
she.  His name was Yakub Volkowicz.  They had no children.

Thank you!

Czernowitz Ancestor/Relative #romania

Zev Cohen
 

In the Czernowitz City Directory of 1936 (many thanks to Edgar Hauster
and Martina Lelgemann for the data) there are two listings pertaining
to persons whom I believe are an ancestor and a relative -

VERETENA Mehel - Brutar (Baker), located at Calea Plevnei 44 (I
believe him to be my maternal grandfather)

POLAC Lazar - Croitor (Tailor), located at Calea Costache Negruzzi 13c
( I believe him to be my late mother's first husband).

I would be immensely grateful for any information regarding these two
persons and their families.

Best regards,
