Re: FINKELSTEIN Canada orphan immigrants ca 1923 #general

Aubrey Jacobus <aajacobus@...>
 

In tracing a cousin of my wife I found that he had been abandoned as
a small child by his father after the death of his mother.
I found that this Jewish child was fostered by a Christian family
later came into the care of a Christian Mission and at the age of 17
was under the auspices of the Salvation Army sent to Canada in 1922
to work on farms. I found another Jewish boy was with him.

There was then a policy of repopulating Canada by orphaned youths
from the UK.
After a great deal of research I discovered that this cousin
married a Christian lady and died childless in Canada in 1987.
The other lad was named FINKELSTEIN arrived 1-Jul-1923
SS Montrose into Quebec

Re: What differences are there in history of Jews in Ukraine vs Russia? #ukraine

davidnsandler@...
 

Hi Carolyn, there was no Ukraine in 1900. Ukraine became independent
briefly after 1918 for a few years, until it was incorporated into the
new Soviet Union. Family was correct, they were subjects of Nicholas 2,
Czar of all the Russias. As for what life was like for Jews in Imperial
Russia, there are numerous books covering the period 1772-1918, and Jews
ran the gamut of all types and persuasions. By 1900 their general
standard of living had deteriorated and most lived in poverty in the
Pale. There were exceptions though, some Jews were wealthy merchants
and industrialists, others spoke German or Russian at home rather than
Yiddish. All modern scholars agree that the picture painted by Fiddler
showed only a part of the Jewish experience, which was much more varied.

Good luck, Dave Sandler

Searching for SCHAELER and BERLINER and WOLFFING families #germany

Susan Edel
 

My great great grandmother Karoline nee SCHAELLER was born in 1821 or
1823 in Schwanfeld, and was married to Isaak BERLINER. I believe she had a
sister Rosa/Rosina born 12.8.1819 (married to Isidor WOLFFING)and a brother
Isaak Moses born 20.5.1817.

They were maybe the children of Moses Salomon and Marianne SCHAELLER. I
believe Karolina and Isaak Berliner married in 1842 in Schwanfeld and
Karolina died in 1894 in Wurzburg. Rosa/Rosina died in 1885 also
possibly in Wurzburg. I am looking for information about my family
and so far am coming up with a brick wall. The archives in Wurzburg
cannot help, only if I come in Person!
Does anyone know anything about these families or give me some clues as to
whom to turn for help.

I am delighted to be able to report that we have FOUND the right family and to thank you for the part you have playedd in bringing this about.

Some 300 people in South Africa, Israel and England have received the search message in the past 48 hours in addition to those who have read it on this SIG. Many responded with suggestions and with results they had of search on the Internet. I particularly appreciated the fact that some FORWARDED my message to others, thinking they may have a clue.

We have here yet another example of what communal support can do to solve a quest, and I am most grateful to you all for that.

Yizkor Book Project, February 2015 #usa

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Time and tide wait for no man and certainly not the Yizkor Book Project.
Although we seemed to have quickly run out of the days of February, quite
a deal was achieved within the YB Project during February 2015.

In particular, we received quite a number of translations >from volunteer
translators who dedicate their knowledge and time in helping to move our
project forward. Translation, however, is not only the aspect of our project
in which volunteers play a major role and the Yizkor Book Project is
definitely volunteer orientated. Volunteers lend their support in editing,
coordinating projects, typing up text, transliterating necrologies,
transcribing text into Excel files, scanning books, scanning photos and the
list goes on. Volunteers are also those who make the Yizkor Book in Print
Project happen and who take part in the many facets involved in preparing
the completed translations in formats appropriate for publishing. All these
volunteers do outstanding work and we are truly indebted to the remarkable
resources their continuing efforts provide within the Yizkor Book Project.
So if I have raised your interest and you would like to be involved in one
of the fields I have noted, I would be certainly glad to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for February.
