FW: Seeking descendants of Dora WEISSMANN #unitedkingdom

David & Diana Laufer
 

I have found in the Yad Vashem database Pages of Testimony written by Dora
WEISSMANN in 1978 regarding several of her LAUFER relatives. I suspect that
these LAUFERs are relatives of my father Szlama (Shlomo) LAUFER.

Dora gave her then address in Maida Vale, London. Naturally, I started
looking
for Dora WEISSMANN but sadly I found her grave site in the JGSGB database.

She died in July 1981 and is buried in the Edgwarebury Lane cemetery .
Her tombstone has an inscription
"Loving and beloved mother
who lived her life with courage
Mourned by her family and friends".
There is no mention of the names of her children.

As Dora's children are possibly my cousins I would like to establish
contact.
If anybody knows them please ask them to contact me.

information from Siberia #ukraine

Myra Waddell
 

I have never been able to discover whether my paternal
great-grandparents, Chaim and Keila Borkowsky, were born in Irkutsk or
merely lived there for a while before moving, with their children, to
Hailar, China in 1914-1915. At least one of their children, Rachelle,
was born in Irkutsk - in 1884. I think that most if the others were
probably born there, too, (between early 1860s and 1887) except my
Grandpa Schmuel, who, for some reason, was born in Kolno in Poland in
1870! Also, one of their grand-daughters was born in Irkutsk in 1901.

I see that some members of the Ukraine SIG are knowledgeable about
records in parts of Russia and wondered whether someone might be able to
tell me if there are any databases online for Irkutsk. I can't read
Russian. Thanks. Myra Waddell (Adelaide, South Australia)

Re: Origins of SALMONI #sephardic

Schelly Talalay Dardashti
 

Dear Alan,

The quickest way to discover if you may have Sephardic roots is to join
the IberianAshkenaz DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA.com. The project,
co-administrated by Judy Simon and myself, has been very successful in
connecting families to their Sephardic origins since the project's
inception.

Nardo Bonomi's Italian Family History site is another great place to
check for Italian Jewish names. The name index at Sephardim.com is
also excellent for clues.

I checked my good friend's Pere Bonnin's Sangre Judia (4th edition)
and some possibilities come to mind:

Salamo 1391 Baleric Islands
Salama 1276 Murviedro Aragon area
Salami 1344 L'Aleixar Tarragona area
Salamonet 1324 La Selva Tarragona area
Salany 1422 Toledo
Salomino 1352 Tolosa Tarragona area
Salomo 1299 Barcelona
Salomon 1096 Leon

There is that possibility that SALMONI refers to the town of Salmoni,
of course.

Following the 1492 Expulsion >from Spain - and even earlier, after the
1391 massacres across Spain - Sephardim went everywhere in the known
world. Many went to Sicily >from Catalunya as both places were Catalan-
speaking. One year later 1493 they were expelled >from Sicily, many left
for mainland Italy (Calabria and elsewhere), others converted and many
went underground and stayed. In 1492, many went directly >from Spain to
Italy and to Greece and to Turkey, as well as to North Africa.

However, I think you will find some interesting results doing a Y-DNA
test (37 or 67 markers) with FamilyTreeDNA.com and joining the
IberianAshkenaz DNA Project. I've copied Judy Simon on this to send you
an invite to the project.

Many thanks to all the Genners who kindly responded to my
query about Rutcheous. Many thought it would be Raciaz
but I think Ann Rabinowitz has found it, bless her cotton socks!
This fits in with the rest of the family. It's near Kalisz.

Raszkow; Town in Poland;Raszkow is a town in Ostro Wielkopolski County,
Greater Poland Voivodeship, Poland, with 2,043 inhabitants

The Jewish cemetery in Raszkow - Jewish cemetery in Raszkow founded
in the nineteenth century. In September 1939 it was destroyed by the Nazis.

the cemetery.

The town of Kalisz is located in the Greater Poland voivodship of central
Poland,some 250 km southwest of Warsaw and approximately 105 km southeast
of Poznan. It is only about 100-150 km to some of the other main cities of
Poland, such as Lodz and Wroclaw.

Kalisz forms part of a conurbation with the neighbouring towns of Ostrow
Wielkopolski and Skalmierzyce.

Covering an area of 69.8 km2 Kalisz is the second largest city in the
Greater Poland region, after Poznan, with a population of around 108,000.
The town, as is the whole region, is influenced by oceanic air currents,
that make for mild weather.

from where did Antonio arrived in Milano? That is the first step of your

Dear All,

The time is drawing closer for those of you who are planning on coming to
the IAJGS Conference in August. The deadline for the reduced room rate
at the hotel is April 30! And rooms are going fast. We will have some
exciting news to share with you at that time!

However, I am very much saddened by the lack of response to my requests
for financial assistance, so that we are able to cover the costs to
which we are committed for our guest speaker. To date only one member
has given to help us, out of a total of 746 members! That is really
shocking and can be enormously embarrassing to us all as a group.

We do hope to hear >from more of you, and if you are indeed planning to
attend, a message to that effect to us would be greatly appreciated - as
would be more donations to the cause. You can donate by going to:

<http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=12>

The time is drawing closer for those of you who are planning on coming to
the IAJGS Conference in August. The deadline for the reduced room rate
at the hotel is April 30! And rooms are going fast. We will have some
exciting news to share with you at that time!

However, I am very much saddened by the lack of response to my requests
for financial assistance, so that we are able to cover the costs to
which we are committed for our guest speaker. To date only one member
has given to help us, out of a total of 746 members! That is really
shocking and can be enormously embarrassing to us all as a group.

We do hope to hear >from more of you, and if you are indeed planning to
attend, a message to that effect to us would be greatly appreciated - as
would be more donations to the cause. You can donate by going to:

to make your donation!

We look forward to hearing >from many of you!
