Searching: EYKHLER/EICHLER-GOLDSTEIN & JACOBS from Przasnysz #belarus

I attempted to send this email to Rita Margolis and then post a similar
subject to Jewishgen.org and to the Belarus digest as well.



However, since the email bounced, I have decided to use this as my post. It
tells the story and gives specific knowledge of our Eichler-Goldstein family
from Przasnysz. We also believe our original Jacobs’ family surname could
have been Eichler, also >from Przasnysz.



“Dear Rita Krakower Margolis,
May 13, 1998 you posted a search for the above subject.

Very recently, by finding and connecting with my Goodman cousin in MD who is
a Goldstein descendant - his mother was Ruth Goldstein - he forwarded a copy
of verification of birth of my g-great uncle, Lewis Goldstein. This showed
he was the son of Mortka (any spelling) and Sura Eykhler. See below.

May 27, 1870
By reasons of the lack of a birth certificate, for Leybka Eykhler, who was
born in the city Prasnysh, whose father Mortka and Sura >from the town of
Topory. Two witnesses were brought to the City Council, Yankl Walishewer
and Mortka Seborer. They testified that they knew Leybka Eykhler well and
that he was born in 1851 and he is currently 19 years old."
Signed by Burgermeister

Does this connect with your family?”

I was about to post to Jewishgen and decided to search first for
Eichler-Goldstein.

Many thanks.

My father is buried in a Jewish Cemetery. I was wondering why it is that
the feet would be where the headstone is located. I thought it was all in
the name...*head*-stone. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That's a toughy. They're both quite common names.

BERL is derived >from the very common (German and Yiddish) first name, Ber,
meaning bear, which is associated with its Hebrew translation Dov, and is
a kinnuy for Issachar.

SCHMELTZER is German for smelterer, a skilled artisan in the metal
industry but among Jews possibly someone who rendered down animal fats to
use in the manufacture of candles or soap (in Europe, in the 18th-19th
centuries, the utilization of animal by-products was very much in the
hands of Jews).

There were probably hundreds of families bearing each name, and the name
alone does not necessarily imply family affinity.

Hi,

I am trying to get contact and information with this family who emigrated
from Rovno in the 1920's. The adult generation were Mendel and Eva. Of
their children, I only know the names of two daughters (Nadia m. William
RING, of New York City, and Mania m. STYL of Toulouse, France) but not of the
siblings who went to Argentina.

I appreciate any and all leads.

Thanks.
