Looking for any Gershman relatives from Beltsy ( Bessarabia /Moldavia) #general

eiskhakova@...
 

Looking for any GERSHMAN relatives >from Beltsy ( Bessarabia /Moldavia)
I am very interested in finding any relatives I might have in USA,
Israel, Moldavia or South America.
My father's family is >from Beltsy.
My grandmother's name was Dina Gershman, and she was born in April of
1915. She had an older brother Boris Gershman, and younger sister Rosa
Gershman. Her father's name was Aaron, and mother's name was Chavah (
although, I am not a 100% sure). While still living in Beltsy, in May of
1941, my grandmother had a son named Gregory, who is my father. I do not
have any information about who was the husband of my grandmother, or
even if she had any.
According to my grandmother , when she was a little girl her mother's
sister immigrated to South America.
In 1941, right after the World War II started, all Gershman family left
Beltsy in order to survive Nazi invasion. Shortly after war was over
they were all living in the Russian city Novosibirsk.
In the beginning of the 20th century, majority of Jewish families were
big, so I am sure that my grandmother's parents had many brothers and
sisters. I am hoping this will help me to finding my roots and long lost
relatives that I might have.
Please, if you have information that can help me in my search, write me.
Any suggestion appreciated as well.

Re: Does anyone recognise this Vienna publishing house? #general

I have a Haggadah probably published in 1929 (undated) leather bound which
has English translation and then switches to French 2/3 of the way through.
This volume was obviously misbound. Somewhere there may be a Haggadah
starting with French translation and ending with English!

In my opinion it gives to much information that should not be on line, but
it may assist some in trying to find family in the USA.
Actually, the only thing it seems to give that one cannot find in any number
of online telephone directories is the time at which the given person was at
the address shown. There is really nothing there that poses a risk of any
sort to anyone; that is not the way identities are stolen, for example. It
is, however, far more convenient than any of the online telephone

Chicago marriage record Lookup #general

budblaher <budblaher@...>
 

I am looking for someone in the Chicago area who might assist me in trying
to get details on Israel RUTMAN. He came to Chicago around 1916, married a
Rose TOBIN, then retired to Miami Beach around 1965. They had no children.
I have his death certificate and last will & testament.

from these documents, I was able to find that his wife preceded him in death
by 5 years. He left his estate to his brother-in-law and 8 nephews and
nieces. I could not locate his brother-in-law, Robert Hankins, in Skokie,
although there was a Hankewicz at his address. I am asking anyone in the
Chicago area if you can look up the Israel RUTMAN/Rose TOBIN marriage record.
I don't know when they were married. He probably has an application for
naturalization on record in Cook county. That application will probably give
me the date of arrival,ship he arrived on, and confirm the Russian city he came
from.

Israel RUTMAN is one of four young men who travelled together across Siberia
to Japan and arrived in Seattle in 1916. My father was one of the four. I
have managed to get all the information on another of the four and made
contact with his family (as well as a reunion with my father's family) on a
trip to Russia last summer. I plan another trip in the future and would
like to meet Mr. RUTMAN'S family as well.

Please respond privately.

researching land records and family records #warsaw #poland

asleuth@...
 

I have been researching my family >from Warszawa for some time and have
information >from various relatives regrading where the family lived until
most of them left for the United States between 1898 and 1915. My great
grandfather owned a farm in Ochota which had several homes on it as well as
his dairy and tinsmiths shop, The family also at one time owned a crockery
shop on Wspoolne Street (this is the spelling that my great uncle used in
his autobiography where he listed all the street names and house numbers
where the family lived until they left Warszawa.) I have been told that
where the farm was there is now housing, depending on who I believe it is
either a city owned apartment complex or very expensive mansion type homes
where the very rich of Warszawa live now. I recently was able to learn the
name of my great great grandfather but no longer have the address of where
I wrote ( and received and answer from) in Warszawa regarding the birth and
marriage certificates of the various family members. At the time I was
asked for the marriage date of my great grandparents, all I could supply was
an approximate date and only had the english names of the relatives. I now
have the names that they used while living in Warszawa. How do I get the
information I need now that I have the names and some of the dates I was
asked to provide? Can any one help?

The Kotsker rebbe zy"o was not a kohein.

So there is no reason why Mylekh could not have been a grandson of R'

Where and when was Mylekh born? Do you have any information about him?

My cousin who did searches about this family in the 1960's (I think)
wrote that the names of Menachem Mendel's parents were Aryeh Leib

My records show that his parents were Yisroel Lybush MORGENSZTERN and
Etia (no surname)

that he had (at least) one brother (named
Israel Shmuel),
He had a brother Yisroel in Turobin.


that his wife was Chaya bas Rabbi Moshe LIPSZYC of
Warsaw, and that he had (at least) one son (David) and two daughters
(Sarah or Sarah Tsina and another). Does anyone have infos about this
being right or wrong, and the names or infos of any other sibling,
child, grandparents...?
His second wife was Chaya LIPSZYC, >from whom he twin daughters and two

Rabbi Dovid MORGENSZTERN (who became the second Kotsker Rebbe) was born
from his first wife Glike NAY.

exhibition in Memel / Klaipeda East Prussia #germany

">from the border town out into the world
100 years of Jewish life in Memel / Klaipeda"

In the most northerly Prussian port town a highly varied Jewish life
developed in the middle of the 19th century, inspired by immigrants
from the East and the West. The changing political allegiances of the
town and region after 1919 made it easy for the township to
blossom rapidly, growing >from approx. 2000 inhabitants to almost
7000 inhabitants in the interwar period.

Moreover, in the 30s Klaipeda became an important centre of Zionist
emigration. The anti-Semitic politics in Germany which began after
1933 had rapid effects on the situation in the Memel territory.
When Hitler occupied the region in March 1939 by issuing an
ultimatum, the Jewish community was suddenly exterminated.
The Jews of the region, who primarily fled to Lithuania, fell foul of
the fiendish interplay of the National Socialist and
the Stalinist dictatorship, which only a few of them survived.
