Ostroweic Swietokrzyski #general

Joy Zinoman <jzinoman@...>
 

Dear Jewish Genners,

During a recent trip(May 2004) to Poland, I visited my mother's hometown,
Ostroweic. Aside >from a makeshift cemetary, made up of post-war collected
gravestones, there is little remaining to indicate the existence of a large
and vibrant Jewish community which existed prior to the holocaust. To my
delight, however, we discovered a marvelous historical museum with exhibits
of copious artifacts of the Jewish community and a historian attached to
the museum who was well-versed in the history of that community. He showed
me a Yizkor book on the town published in Israel. In Warsaw, at the Jewish
Historical Institute, I met Lea Balint, who was originally >from Ostrovtser,
but now lives in Israel. She told me that there are large and active
Ostrovtser groups in Israel and suggested that I try to contact them to get
information on my relative, whose names incidently are GROSSMAN / GLATT. I
must have miscopied the email address she gave me, since my messages are
returned. I hope that she, or someone who knows her, sees this message and
gets in touch with me. I would very much like to establish contact with any
Ostrovster groups existing in Israel. Specifically, I would like to obtain
copies of an publications, such as the Yizkor book, that might be available.
Thanks in advance for your consideration. Murray Zinoman(mzinoman@msn.com)

Subject: Seeking information on KIEVERSON/KIEFERSON
From: Joel Throne<jkt25@yahoo.com>
Date: June 21, 2004

I am trying to find any information on Clara
KIEVERSON/KIEFERSON SILVER, my Grandmother. I believe that Clara
was born outside of Bucharest. She Married Emil
"Rochmil" SILVERMAN. They were married around 1911 in
the USA and had two Daughters, Mary Silver FELDBLUM
and Frances Silver THRONE( my Mother). I know that the
Silverman Family lived in St. Louis, but Clara
remained in the New Jersey area. Anything on Clara or
the KERVERSON/KIEFERSON's would be helpful.

New Important Website #france

Elsebeth Paikin
 

For your information:

An important and interesting new website was put online today which might
have interest for many - not only in Denmark or Scandinavia:

http://www.kb.dk/simonsen/

In is based on David Simonsen's archive now at the Danish Royal Library in
Copenhagen. David Simonsen was a scholar, rabbi, philanthropist and much more

I cannot here go into details about him or his fabulous archives, but you
can now read about it on the website. But let me underscore that David
Simonsen had contacts in many countries and was deeply involved in relief
work for refugees and
immigrants

- therefore check it out although you have never thought of Denmark
Just a few words about the archives >from the introduction on the website:

"Contents of the archives:

During the more than seventy years that have passed since the David Simonsen
Archives were acquired by the Royal Library, a number of attempts have been
made to make their vast contents more readily accessible to scholars.

However, none of these attempts came to fruition, and no comprehensive finding
aid has been available. The archives were kept in approximately 200 worn-down
and acidulous cardboard boxes, labelled, e.g; Private correspondence 1890-1924,
Jewish relief work 1890-1924.Particularly remarkable letters had been extracted
and sorted according to the name of the sender. The present list of
correspondents
is the result of a cooperative effort between the Department for Oriental and
Judaica Collections and the Manuscript Department (by Karen Marie Jensen).

The principles of organization used in the Manuscript Department have been
followed, and the David Simonsen Archives are now subdivided thus:

Letters
Manuscripts (David Simonsen's own works)
Dispatches (communiques, bulletins, memoranda, press releases)
Files (materials regarding specific topics)
Accounts
Printed matters
Press cuttings
Miscellaneous

The greater part of the archives consists of David Simonsen's
correspondence, now
made public through the present list and the website.

Best regards
- and good luck!
