Freindlich #ukraine

Arnold Samlan
 

I recently discovered my great-great-grandfather's name: Joseph/Yosef
Freindlich (or close spelling). While this is all the information that I have as
of the moment, his daughter, Rosie (Freindlich) Samlan came to Montreal, most
likely in the 1890's. She was widowed at a young age, and died herself in 1915,
leaving an only son, my grandfather.

The only information I have >from my family is that its roots are ">from
Romania," which, in that time period, could be Romania proper or any of a few
other nearby countries.

Anyone with the last name of Freindlich (or a closely related name) who
believes that they might have a family connection, or might have other
information, please contact me.

Best wishes for a shana tova,

HOFFMAN,BENDER,BERMAN,CHARNEY #belarus

Judith Scarani <judithscarani1@...>
 

My great grandmother Rose BENDER was born in Minsk in 1880's. She often
spoke of a cousin, Al HOFFMAN (also born in Minsk) who wrote lots of music
for Disney. He died in the 1960's. I recently got in touch with his
heirs---he did not have any children. They do not know how we are related.

I am wondering if anyone has Hoffmans and Benders in their family
tree....unfortunately, I only know that Rose's mother's first name was Leah.
I do not know her maiden name.

My family tree of the Benders, et alia, >from Minsk can be viewed at

Thank you.

I have posted on View Mate a picture taken of the Landsman >from Dunayevtsy,
Ukraine. The Jews referred to their home town as Dinovitz. Dinovitz is
located just to the north-east of Kamenitz Podolsk in the Ukraine.

This picture was taken in the early 1950's in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. We
have been able to identify some of the people but would love to see if anyone
recognizes someone else.

The individuals who are known are marked as:

#`16-Morris Rozenzwog--born there
#15 Bessie Rozenswog--his wife
#19 Hirsch Weintraub--born there
#28 Nettie Moss Cohen--born there
#29 Hyman Schechter--born there
#33 Rose Kippnor Schechter Anbinder--born there
#31 David Anbinder--her husband
#38--Mary Kushner Rombro--born there
