Great grandmother's death NY after 1910 #general

Suzecrazy@...
 

Hi again,
I am wondering if any of you can help me find info on the death of my great
grandmother Henrietta Buchwald. The 1910 census has her at age 70 living
on W. 115th st in Manhattan. She was born in 1840, and lived with her son
in law Philip Fetbrandt and his wife Ray. The children were George and
Samuel. I'm trying to find out the year of her death and thought someone
may have info before I order a vital records search.
Sincerely, Susan Stock

I recently discovered >from the Montreal non-catholic marriage index that my
great-uncle, Max Rapport, married Ida Beerman in 1908 at Ohel Moshe
Synagogue in Montreal. I would appreciate any information about this
synagogue, its location and whether it is possible to obtain any marriage
records. I have already searched on the internet and found one reference
to Ohel Moshe in the Jewishgen Rabbinic Discussion Group database of
Rabbis of Quebec. However, the listing provided no information about the
synagogue other than that there are records >from 1906-1942. Thank you.

Shalom to all.

On behalf of my children and myself I would like to thank all those who
sent us messages of sympathy on the sudden and untimely passing away of
Pnina,.my dearly loved wife, mother and grandmother.

Just as in the past you were always there for us, advising and helping in
our search trying to solve the problem of Pnina's identity, so today you
are with us in our grief.

At least we have one consolation knowing that she went to her final resting
place aware of her true identity.

ISS(E)ROFF and group surname / Y-DNA Marker Program #southafrica

Saul W. Issroff <shaul@...>
 

JewishGen and FTDNA are pleased to announce an extension to the Genealogy
by Genetics project currently in place. The Group Surname/DNA program
will analyze Y chromosome DNA markers in families with surnames that
appear to be derived >from the same surname, in this instance all
variants derived >from the surname ISSER (ISRAEL) e.g. ISSEROW, ISSEROV,
ISSAR, ISSAROV, ISSAROW, ISSROV, ISSROW, ISSEROFF, ISROFF, ESROW, ESSROFF,
IZAR, ISSERLIS, ISSERLES, ISSERL, ISSERLIN and any other possible
variants.. We need at least one male direct descendant >from each family
group to include that surname in the project .

Our hypothesis is that they may be descended >from a common male ancestor,
who lived 250-900 years ago. Thus far, these families appear to be
unconnected except by similar sounding surnames. The Y chromosome test that
looks only at male descendents can tell us whether any of these families
are related, and if so, within how many generations. Each participant will
need to submit a sample of cells gently swabbed >from the inside of their
cheek.

An explanation of the test and answers to frequently asked questions about
Y Chromosome DNA markers are at:
http://www.ftdna.com/faq.html

Briefly, the test examines the genetic sequences at each of 25 sites on the
Y Chromosome. These sites are called markers. If two men share the exactly
same sequences at all twenty five sites we can be fairly certain that the
men have a recent common ancestor.

For this group surname y-dna project, we need direct male descendents
of the family names derived >from ISSER as listed above. A kit for the
analysis can be obtained >from FTDNA through the Group's ordering page at
http://www.familytreedna.com/surname_join.asp?code=J70869

When a sampling kit is ordered >from this site, it will allow for the Group
pricing, and the analysis results will be added to the Group's data
base. In addition, any Group member whose Y Chromosome shares all 25
markers with anyone else in the laboratory's 11,000+ Y Chromosome data
base, will be immediately notified if they select that option. The
discounted Group price of each analysis including shipping is $171.00.

We are going for the Y-DNA plus 25 marker paternal test.

The link http://www.ftdna.com/surname_det.asp?group=Isroff
can be published in newsletters or other online websites and publications
that you are approaching to look for potential
participants who may be unknown to you at this point. This requires the
person to fill a form that explains why they want to join the group, and
ask for our permission to do so. They will then be entitled to the
discounted group pricing available to participants in this project.

Please feel free to copy this message to anyone who may fit the surname
criteria and ask them to contact either Hadar Isseroff
ISSEROH@BuffaloState.edu or me at Saul@shaul.homechoice.co.uk

Scwartzbard #southafrica

The subject raised was Samuel Schwartzbard, who assassinated the
Ukrainian anti-Semite Petliura, in Paris. He was a survivor of the
Ukrainian pogroms, caused by Petliura (i think that is how you spell
him). Samuel was also an anarchist and a poet.

Not really relevant to SA SIG, but here is the answer, anyway! He did not
assassinate anybody!

Saul


Andre Schwartz-Bart was a French Jewish novelist, born in Metz, 1928. He
wrote the classic 'The Last of the Just' about the 36 Just men (
lamed-Vav's, Tzadikkim) about the matyrdom of Jews >from 12th century
massacre of York to Auschwitz. Later wrote La Mulatresse Solitude ( A Woman
Named Solitude)

At aged 15 he joined the French underground, arrested by the Germans but
escaped and served ni the free French army. His whole family were killed ni
the Holocaust.

21:00:29 +0200 There was some discussion in these messages a while ago about
Andre?
Schwartzbaard who assassinated someone famous. I took minimal notice of
it at the time but now someone has approached me and asked if I have any
information about him.
Can someone please remind me or give me a source?

Andre Schwarzbard who wrote "Last of the Just is not to be confused with
Sholom Schwarzbard
who assassinated Petlura in Paris in 1926. Symon Petlura was a
Ukrainain nationalist who organised wide scale pogroms in the brief
period of Ukrainian Independence 1918-1920.
Sholom Schwarzbard was buried in Cape Town in 1938 and reinterred in
Avichail near Netanya.

Seeking descendants: BACHER/HEMMERDINGER #france

Rosanne D. Leeson <leeson1@...>
 

Dear fellow SIGgers,

I have been contacted by an attorney with a legal firm in Berlin, which
handles reparations. They are trying to locate any possible
descendants/family of an Elsa HEMMERDINGER, nee BACHER. She is not part
of my vast HEMMERDINGER family tree.

The only information they are able to give is that she was born Oct. 27,
1870, in Magdeburg, Germany, the daughter of a Julius BACHER and
Caroline, nee HIRSCHFELD. >from 1884-1905 the family resided in
Halle/Saale. After that there is no trace, no records of her marriage
(husband's first name unknown) or any possible children. The only other
piece of information that has been found indicates that she survived the
Holocaust, and in 1947 was residing in the Central Hotel, Lacaune, Tarn,
France. At that time she applied to the German authorities for copies
of some documents that were needed, as she planned to emigrate to the
U.S. It is not known if she ever actually did emigrate.

If any of this sounds familiar to you, or if you know anything of this
family please, please do contact me privately.

Many thanks,
Rosanne Leeson
