Looking for Dvora GLASER #galicia

arie meir
 

Hi to all of you

I decided to give up. It is now more than fifteen years that I am
looking for my grandfather's daughter Dvora GLASER but with no
response.

It is now my last try and here are the details:

My grandfather Chaim GLASER lived in Przemysl before the second
world war.

He had a daughter called Dvora (Dora or Dova), who was born in 1927.

The last time my family heard >from them was in 1939.

Chaim Glaser was married to my grandmother Helena-Chaya in Vienna.

In the early twenties he got divorced, left Vienna and moved to
Przemysl (Poland). He got married a second time in the year 1926 to
Rachella STOLZBERG and had this one daughter.

In 1939 he was about 43 years old and she was 12 years old.

In case any one of the readers can help me finding what happened to
them please be so kind to inform me to your knowledge. The
information in "Yad Vashem" is just a guess and not based on any
information.

Leib FASS & The SCHaCH #rabbinic

alfred silberman <alsilberman@...>
 

The Schach in Yoreh Deah Siman 98:2 calls Gershon ASHKENAZI (Avodath
HaGershuni) his mechutan. That is also what the sefer Toldoth
Gedolei Horoah says on page 90.

This relationship is apparently through Leib FASS (I've also seen it
spelled POSS) who was the first father-in-Law of Gershon ASHKENAZI.
This is what it seems to say in "Die Letzte Vertreibung der Juden
Aus Wien und Niederosterreich" page 85 in the footnote.

Does anybody know how Leib FASS was related to the Schach?

An Unknown Eisenstadt man to remember #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Look what I just found on the IKG cemetery database:

Ein Mann, gestorben in einer unruhigen Zeit
Eisenstadt 5. Reihe 3

A man who died in a disturbed time - at last he has been remembered!

I wonder how many more of these "unidentified burials" we will be able to find?


Celia Male [U.K.]

Footnote - Website:

http://friedhof.ikg-wien.at/search.asp?lang=en English
http://friedhof.ikg-wien.at/search.asp?lang=de German

To find these graves is *hard*! You have to type *reihe* in the row field
preceeded by the row number and then proceed forwards with grave numbers in the
number field. This grave is: 5. reihe / Nummer 3

The Graz cemetery is particularly hard.

Remember to tick the box which says "Show also records where date of deceased
and date of funeral does not exist" and *make sure* it is ticked *all the time*
as it unticks itself.

Cahn Breakthrough/German Translation Please #general

Ben Forman <ben.forman@...>
 

Hi Genners

For those of you who have offered help and advice while I have searched, battled
German data protection laws, sweet talked beaurocrats, run round in circles, and
inched forward slowly - a big thankyou.

Finally after several years looking, and 12 months of concerted effort I have
recieved the marriage certificate of my GGGF Hermann CAHN to his second wife
Emma HEIMBACH.

http://www.benangem.plus.com/famtree/Cahn_heimbach_Marriage_1894_small.jpg

If someone could tell me the details of what it says I would be most grateful,
particularly with regard to previous marriages.

I have picked up the headlines, which have confirmed that his father was
Jacob CAHN, and this has allowed me to constuct a detailed CAHN family
tree >from the lists I have compiled along the way. In doing so I have
opened up another couple of mysteries to solve, but for now I am happy
that I have traced this part of my family back to

Moses CAHN (butcher 17??-1818ish possibly dieing in Langel am Rhein) and
his wife Sybilla LEVI (possibly of Bruehl 1769-1825 possibly dieing in
Nieder Zuendorf).

Thanks as always for your help

Re: The Free Genealogy Software PhpGedView #general

Hello,

How I work is like this:

I use Family Tree MAker since the last winter to manage my family
tree. Before that I used PAF which is a free software tool made for
the mormons and which can be donwloaded >from their website. I consider
it as a great tool. It supports Hebrew so I still use it for my Hebrew
family tree. FOr my Dutch family tree I use Family Tree Maker 2006.
For my website I use Genmod which is a offshoot project >from the
original PHPgedview developers.
It is indeed a great tool, everyone who has the priviliges to do so,
can after logging in, add and update his/her information to the family
tree. If the administrator approves the changes, it will be possible
to see them.
You have also the option to donwload reports, to look at a dynamic
timeline (for example this http://www.gershon-lehrer.be/FmT/genmod/timeline.
php?pids%5B0%5D=3DI1598&newpid=3DI3233) or http://tinyurl.com/2w8ycj

Every time someone changes something in the online family tree, I
manually check it and apply those changes to my family tree maker
file.
I still use PAF to export my files because in Family Tree maker I did
not find yet an option to select people whom I would like to export
and whom I don't want to export. PAF has a veyr advanced tool to
export people.

I plan to add another family tree tool to place on my website which
will be less dynamic and much simpler then genmod in addition to the
dynamic genmod tool for the reason that genmod may slow down sometimes
my website and visitors of my website will not see what they want to
see, so I will you use probably Retrospect whic is a very simple and
easy to use system with much less options then genmod or phpgedview
but still nice. This program can be found here

Jeff - my grandmother's uncle Capt Simon COHEN was murdered whilst on
service for the Labour Corps in Cairo in November 1919 , and is buried in
the Britsh military cemetery in Cairo. I see there's an S.Cohen on the
board, but is there any way to tell if this is my S. Cohen ? What order are
the names grouped in ?

I understand that his next of kin was given as his brother ISRAEL COHEN, and
I'm trying to discover what became of Israel Cohen and his descendants (if
any). The family formerly lived at 25 Wentworth Street, Whitechapel. The
third brother was JOSEPH COHEN who married Esther ROZEPKA.

Thank you Jeff, I took a very close look at that page and have now emailed

remaining Legionnaires leave Palestine for USA". My ancestor could have
been among this group, possibly he lived there and never came back to
Europe/Russian Empire. In which case, at some point he would have had to
register within the USA at some point after arriving. If he did go to the
USA, this could partially explain why there are no records anywhere in the
UK that match his particulars that I do know about.

But what I *really* need to know is, does anyone have any

Looking for TURKANIS and KURCHITZER from Novogrod-Volhynsky, AKA Zvhil #ukraine

This is my first listing.

I am looking for relatives and information on my paternal family, TURKANIS
(possibly TURKIEWICS) and KURCHITZER (possibly KURCZYSER) >from
Novogrod-Volhynsky, AKA Zvhil, especially pre-immigration.

Max (Motel) TURKANIS, my gfather, was born in Russia, married Sura (Sarah)
KURCHITZER, emigrated to the Boston, Massachusetts, area , died on March 14,
1914 and is buried in West Roxbury, MA.

Max may have come to the Boston area because Isadore (Israel, Isadore,
Isador, Isidore) TURKANIS, who had previously emigrated on the SS Smoleusk
via Rotterdam on September 11, 1906, and was a pharmacist, eventually owning
Turkanis Drug in Chelsea, MA, a Boston suburb. I am in the process of
contacting Isadore's descendants.

Sura, my gmother, with the name TURKIEWICS, emigrated to Chelsea, MA, as a
widow on the Estonia via Danzig arriving at Ellis Island on June 17, 1921,
with

1. her mother, Marisa KURCHITZER, my ggmother, a widow, age 53, using the
name KURCZYSER, going to her brother in Boston, MA, who had changed his name
to John Bloom and who paid for their passage I am in contact with one of
Marisa's granddoughters.

2. her teenage sons Edward (Eijor) and George (Jayina).

In addition to John BLOOM, Sura's other siblings were Chava, who married a
SOLOMON, Genia, (Anna) who married a Dr. PATHMAN, and Samuel, who married,
Sima, all of whom lived in the Chicago area, and Ruchia who married a
GUREWISZ and remained in Novogrod-Volhynsky.

It is intriging to note that and speculate on Isadore, Edward and George
TURKANIS, and Samuel and Gina KURCHITZER were all pharmacists. Edward and
George TURKANIS were trained at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy in the
late 1920's and early 1930's, respectively, and that Samuel and Gina were
trained in Russia in the early 1900's.

Any information on my paternal family or guidance on obtaining details of
their lives would be appreciated.
