POVLOTSKY/POVOLOTSKY #ukraine

Sue Coleman <suecoleman1@...>
 

Hi
Is anyone researching Povlotsky/Povolotsky? My g-grandfather
Morris/Maurice came to the UK when my grandfather Gershon/Harry was a
small child in about 1907. Morris travelled with his wife Ethel and 2
other sons Sollie/Chnelia and Michael. Ethel died 1919 and Morris
remarried where he gave his father's name as Sollie. The family came
from the Kiev region but I don't know exactly where.
Thanks for your interest.

Re: Accounts of the Alter Rebbe's Death #rabbinic

Mr L Reich <lreich@...>
 

On 2006.12.13, Varda Epstein <yknow@netvision.net.il> enquired:

Often, the students of an important rabbi will write about the
rabbi's last moments. I would like to track down such a written
account of the Alter Rebbe of Lubavitch's death. Does anyone know
of such an account?
A comprehensive account of the Rebbe's last tortured days during
the Napoleonic wars can be found in Chapter 22 of the classis
"Beis Rebbe" by R' Chaim Meir Heilman. This was first published
in Berditchev in 1900, but has been reprinted in photo editions
at least once in Israel.

notarial records from Amsterdam's Portuguese Jewish Community that mention Danzig #sephardic

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Notarial records surviving >from the Portuguese Jewish Community of Amsterdam
attest to the activity of Sephardic merchants in Danzig in the 16th and 17th
centuries. The extent of Sephardic ancestry in the modern Danzig Community
is unknown. Now online on the Danzig SIG's website at
http://www.jewishgen.org/danzig/amsterdam.php are extracts of records that
explicitly mention Danzig, taken >from the series "Notarial records relating
to the Portuguese Jews in Amsterdam up to 1639," which appeared in the
journal Studia Rosenthaliana during 1967 to 2001. Thanks very much to
editor Dr. Emile G.L. Schrijver for permission to present this material
online, and to Ton Tielen for extraction. The records are accompanied at
the end by a surname index and a finding aid.

BIEBER families in Germany #germany

Martin Conitzer <Martin.Conitzer@...>
 

Hello,
On a photo (abt.1889) taken in the garden of Moses Conitzer, merchant
in Marienwerder, West Prussia, south of Danzig, his housekeeper Ernestine
BLUHM nee BIEBER can be seen (she is 20 or 30 years old).

One of Moses´ sons, Hermann (1862-1936), married Rose BIEBER. Both later
lived in Berlin. She was the daughter of Jacob BIEBER, born in Schoenau, county
Schwetz/West Prussia in 1842 and Johanna FEDERMANN, born in 1852 in Zehdenick.

BIBER families in East Prussia are subject in an article in vol. 13/1990 of the
"Altpreussische Geschlechterkunde. Familienarchiv", edited by the
http://vffow.genealogy.net

Eliakum BIEBER, since 1846 merchant in Eisleben, Eastern Germany, and
his wife Sara nee SCHUTZER, had 6 children, 3 of them born in West
Prussia (Jacob born in 1842, Gustav, Siegmund), 3 in Eisleben (Therese,
Max, Helene born in 1851).

Siegmund´s daughter Wally/Vally BIEBER married Jacob Benno GOLDSTEIN,
whose family had a department store in Eisleben.

E. BIEBER was photographer in Berlin and Hamburg (pre 1905). He/she(?)
took the wedding photo of Moses Conitzer´s grandson Arnold FLATAUER,
whose daughter-in-law Helga Flatauer gave this photo and the photo of
abt. 1889 to me 2 years ago. My 2 cent.

reverting to maiden name after divorce? #warsaw #poland

Bill Celmaster <bill.celmaster@...>
 

I have a Warszawa birth record c. 1850 showing the birth of Abraham Michael
Walfisz to Chai Walfisz, divorced. I have some circumstantial evidence
suggesting that Walfisz was Chai's maiden name, rather than the surname of
her divorced husband. Does anyone know if that would be the 'norm'? Would
a divorced woman revert back to her maiden name, and if so, would her
(young) children be brought up with that name?

Researching: CELMAJSTER, WALFISZ/WELTFISZ, BAUMWOL, LOTHE, AJBESZYC,
CWAJBAUM, FLIGIELTAUB, KLIGER
