Looking for information on Khane KARPUJ nee SPLAVER #general

rayvenna@...
 

I'm seeking information on the following family:

Khane SPLAVER married Moshe KARPUJ (1870 - 1932) and had a
son named Isaac Karpuj (1905 - 1984). This information is >from
a myheritage.com site maintained by Manuel Jaime LEIBOVICH.

I have been unable to contact Mr. Leibovich.

In my tree, I have a Basa Sora Splaver, daughter of Hirsh
Leiser Splaver and Rosa FREEDMAN, who married Morris KARPOCH/KARPUCH
and had the children:

Leah
Hannah
Pesach
Joseph
Haim Dovid
Abraham

I do not know for certain if there is any relationship, as my oral
tree never mentioned a son named Isaac. Here are my notes on
Bassa-Sora/Hanna Bossa KARPOCH/KARPUCH:

"Bassa-Sora is listed in the 1897 Russian census (living with her
parents in Anyksciai). David Splaver remembered her as "Hannah Bossa."
She was not listed on 1910 or 1920 census with parents. It appears
that she did not travel to America with the rest of her family.
There is a record of a Joselis Karpukh (Joseph Karpoch?), son of Mausa
Karpukh and Base Splaver of Anyksciai who was born in 1901. Joselis
married Mania PLIT on March 9, 1928.

There is also a record of an Itsik Karpukh, son of Mausha Karpukh
and Khane Basse Splaver who was born in 1905. He married Reiza KATZ
on May 28, 1929."

Can anyone help me contact the descendants on this family or
locate any information about them? I'm a Splaver descendant, and
am trying to figure out if the myheritage.com entry is in fact the
family I'm looking for.

Thanks,

Mindie Kaplan

Khane SPLAVER married Moshe KARPUJ (1870 - 1932) and had a
son named Isaac Karpuj (1905 - 1984). This information is >from
a myheritage.com site maintained by Manuel Jaime LEIBOVICH.

I have been unable to contact Mr. Leibovich.

In my tree, I have a Basa Sora Splaver, daughter of Hirsh
Leiser Splaver and Rosa FREEDMAN, who married Morris KARPOCH/KARPUCH
and had the children:

Leah
Hannah
Pesach
Joseph
Haim Dovid
Abraham

I do not know for certain if there is any relationship, as my oral
tree never mentioned a son named Isaac. Here are my notes on
Bassa-Sora/Hanna Bossa KARPOCH/KARPUCH:

"Bassa-Sora is listed in the 1897 Russian census (living with her
parents in Anyksciai). David Splaver remembered her as "Hannah Bossa."
She was not listed on 1910 or 1920 census with parents. It appears
that she did not travel to America with the rest of her family.
There is a record of a Joselis Karpukh (Joseph Karpoch?), son of Mausa
Karpukh and Base Splaver of Anyksciai who was born in 1901. Joselis
married Mania PLIT on March 9, 1928.

There is also a record of an Itsik Karpukh, son of Mausha Karpukh
and Khane Basse Splaver who was born in 1905. He married Reiza KATZ
on May 28, 1929."

Can anyone help me contact the descendants on this family or
locate any information about them? I'm a Splaver descendant, and
am trying to figure out if the myheritage.com entry is in fact the
family I'm looking for.

Thanks,

Yes. My aunt is one of the names. I have been working with people
for the past 5 years searching for the women in this camp. I will
be part of a documentary film that will be shot in Gabersdorf on
the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the camp.
Journalist and daughter of one of the survivors, Marisa Fox Bevilacqua,
is organizing this historic event (and is looking for financing).
