WEINTRAUB from Zwolen, Poland #general

tina levine
 

I was told by my mother in law that none of her family survived the holocaust.
While searching on a genealogy website today I found a gentleman with the same
surname as her and >from the same town in Poland (Zwolen, near Radom.) Now I'm
wondering if they might have been cousins.

Her parents were Isaak and Feiga Weintraub. The gentleman's name was Josef
Weintraub, >from Zwolen Poland, born 1922 to Shulem and Malka, nee Zeidenbaum. He
immigrated to Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1946 >from Italy.

Anyone have suggestions for searching his descendants to see if there is a link to
my mother-in-law's family?

Polish Passports Issued After WW 2 to Holocaust Survivors #general

tina levine
 

My late mother in law was liberated >from Bergen-Belsen in April 1945.
On a genealogy website I found her Brazilian immigration card issued by the
Brazilian Consulate in Paris in May 1946. She was in transit to Bolivia where she
arrived in July 1946. On the immigration card her Polish Passport number, which was
issued by the Polish Consulate in Paris in April 1946, is listed.

Is there any way I can obtain a copy of her Polish Passport application based on
the Passport number listed? If so, which embassy or consulate would I have to
contact?

Who would have paid for her trip and would there be existing records?

Thank you for any information or ideas you can share.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Argentina #general

Molly Staub
 

I'm still getting suggestions on Argentinian Jewish settlers, so it's an
important subject.

Someone just suggested I look at Jewishgen's Kehilalinks under
Basavilbaso-Lucienville, Argentina. There are thousands of immigrants who
left Russia >from Odessa through Genoa between 1893 and 1895. The site
offers birth dates, photos, and even some family trees.

Sorting out the names: FELDMAN from Tur'i Remety, Hungary and Scranton, Pennsylvania #general

Malka
 

Perhaps someone here can help me.

I have encountered a confusing situation regarding the names of my maternal
great grandparents, Leba FRIEDMAN FELDMAN and Yehudah (Joseph in the USA)
FELDMAN originally >from Tur'i Remety, Hungary and >from the late
1880s,
Scranton, Pennsylvania. Part of the problem comes >from the fact that their
names and those of their children in Hebrew, Yiddish and English are common
in both places. I do know that in Scranton the family lived at 411 Emmett.
Many of their children lived in New Orleans and Texas.There were Grossman
and perhaps other relatives in Nashville but I am not certain >from which
side of the family, maybe >from both. There were FREED/ FREID/FRIED cousins
in Galveston, Texas but I have not researched that branch yet.

My gr-grandmother was Leba FRIEDMAN FEDMAN (parents Benjamin Solomon
FRIEDMAN and Rosa JACOBS or more likely JACOBOVITZ).Her Heb/Yid name was
Leba. This is known in family history and she has many descendants named
Leba. This is the name on her restored matzevah (tombstone) in Scranton,PA.
and in all family references such as obituaries of her children. Yet on
some official BMD records for her family, census reports, City directories,
etc. she is listed as Lena or Lina.
Complicating this is that one of her daughters was Lena. They are both
listed as Lena on the ship manifest of their USA arrival and some census
records (which is not as distressing as those are famous for
misinformation).

My gr-grandfather was Yehudah FELDMAN which is the name on his restored
matzevah and is the family name he was known by and was used for some of his
descendants. All of the USA records I have found list him as Joseph.

Because of this name confusion I am reluctant to do research in any
Hungarian records.

Any suggestions would be welcomed,
Thank you

Looking for BOHRER from Jodlowa near Tarnow #general

Russ Maurer
 

I could use some help. I am interested in the fate of the BOHRER
family >from Jodlowa, Poland (about 18 miles southeast of Tarnow). I
believe they are related to me and would be delighted with any
information about them. The parents were Jozef BOHRER and Mindla nee
SIEGFRIED. Mindla died 12/31/1930 at age 46 and was buried in
Jodlowa. Their children were Markus Wolf (born about 1905), Malka
(1909), Chaim Simon (1912), Chaia Mariem (1913), and Sara (1920). All
were in school in Jodlowa. Markus Wolf married Ester KAUFTEIL in
Jodlowa in 1931. I don't know whether any of the others were married.
Most likely they were all murdered in the Holocaust, but it's not
certain. I don't see them in Yad Vashem or the USHMM victim/survivor
database (there are one or two Jozefs in USHMM who might be their
father, but not enough information to be at all sure). Haven't yet
found any sign that they emigrated before or after war. Some of
Mindla's siblings came to St. Louis before WWI, so that might be a
logical destination, if they got out. I'm still looking, but could use
any clever suggestions or just extra eyes on it.

Rauzuk Surname from Vilkaviskis #general

Mark Strauss
 

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about new connections with regard to my Rauzuk
family >from Vilkaviskis. One question for this group. Does anyone have any idea
about the origins of the surname Rauzuk? Does it mean anything? Does it reference a
geographical place...or is it a patronymic name that suggests one of my ancestors
had the given name of Rauz, which led to the surname Rauzuk? I'd be interested in
thoughts on this, since it is not a common surname.

DNA testing and privacy of birth parents #dna

Jake Jacobs
 

Hi, Genners, hoping for some guidance. For the second time, I've been
contacted by somebody looking for their genetic parents. Each time, one
of the DNA websites led them to believe they are closely related to me
or one of the profiles I manage. In one case, it was a sperm donor. In
the contact today, it's a guy who got a girl pregnant.

Although theoretically I'd like to help these folks, I'm concerned about
the privacy of my family members. How do you handle such contacts?

Thank you.

Re: Where is Rosendot, Poland? #galicia

If you look in JewishGen's town finder
http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Search.asp
you'll see that in Yiddish Rozwadow, Poland is called Rozvedov. And it
takes only a slight mis-interpretaion of handwriting to change the
Yiddish Rozvedov to what you identify as "Rosendot". My guess is that
you simply have the Yiddish version of Rozwadow on those documents.
