Searching for descendants of POMERANTZ / HOLRIE / BRAHAM #unitedkingdom

Yeruchem & Fraida Cohen
 

My great grandmother's name was Sarah (Sima) POMERANTZ. Her father's name
is listed as Harris HOLRIE on her death certificate and her first child,
Anna, was born in England.

I did a search for the name Harris Holrie on ancestry.com and his name came
up in the UK London censuses of 1881, 1891 and 1901 living in Hamlet Mile
Land (? not readable) Old Town and West Ham, Tidal Basin. I also found a
death certificate index for him >from December 1903 >from the district of West
Ham, County: Essex, Greater London, Volume 4a, Pg 68.

He had a daughter Annie with whom he lived in the 1901 census, whose
husband is listed as Lewis BRAHAM. They had the following children at the
time: Sarah, Sidney, Lilly, and Caroline. I found a record of their marriage
date as June,1889.

If you have knowledge of anyone >from and of the abovementioned families, I
would like to hear >from you.

If you would like to answer privately, remove any numbers that might appear
in my email address for your reply. Otherwise, please reply to the
newsgroup.

Re: BERDICHEVSKY/BERDICZEWSKI from Kirovograd or Odessa, Ukraine #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Wendy Almeleh of Great Neck, NY is inquiring for a
friend without a computer, whose great-grandfather was
Isaac BERDICHEVSKY, a cantor in Kirovograd or Odessa,
who died in the early 1900s.

Wendy writes:<Isaac had a son, Morris Berdichevsky,
who was a musician who studied at and may have taught
at the Odessa Conservatory of Music.

In addition, Isaac had two unmarried daughters, both
doctors, who served in the Russian army during World
War I and then ran a clinic in Znamenka/Znamyanka or
Kiev, where they also hid Jews during the civil war of
1918-1920s. The first names of these women are not
known. The family was last heard >from in
the mid-1920s.>

I am also looking for Lily BERDICHEVSKY who would now
be about 78. Her father was a piano teacher in
Alexandria, Egypt. Music teaching was of a high
standard, both privately, at schools and at the
Conservatoire. There were many visits >from top
orchestras and soloists including the Palestine
Philharmonic in the 1930s and early 40s. On 9th Jan.
1937 [before my birth] they were in Alex. conducted by
Toscanini. Many Jews >from Odessa settled in Egypt.
Within a generation most were Francophone.

Lily was a pupil at my English school where I have
reconstructed the register since 1935. We have only
very few people missing and Lily is one of them. One
of her classmates told me that she left for
Palestine/Israel a long time ago - probably in the
late 1940s early 1950s.

I have a 1949 telephone listing for a single S.
BERDITCHEVSKY [sic] in Alexandria, 1949 and 1953. I
have no way of knowing if this was Lily's father or
another family, probably related. The generations
would be about right and there is a possible musical
link! A long shot, but not out of the question!

Problems with Yad Vashem Website #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

Subject: problems with Yad Vashem website
From: Zvi Bernhardt <central.database@yadvashem.org.il>
Date: Mon, 19 Jun 2006 14:06:02 -0400


On Yom Hashoah, we [Yad Vashem] put up a whole new site. We did this
in order to integrate a Russian interface for the site, a very
important move as we have also started a project to collect Pages of
Testimony among Russian speaking Jews. The project is currently
being carried out in the Ukraine and in Israel.

Like most new sites, the new site has bugs. We have sorted out most
of the bugs, but the site is still not as stable as the site we had
before Yom Hashoah. At this point, most of the time it works fine,
but problems occur every few days. Our computer people are working
hard to solve the problems as quickly as possible.

PLEASE write us at central.database@yadvashem.org.il if you encounter
technical problems with our site. We usually aren't able to answer
you quickly enough to help you, but you help us (and yourself in the
long run) by making sure we know all the problems that exist.
