Was Rabbi Boruch Ber LEIBOWITZ From The Tribe Of Levy #rabbinic

Robert Tachna
 

Can anyone tell me if Rabbi Boruch Ber LEIBOWITZ, who lived >from 1862 -
November 17, 1939, was >from the tribe of Levy?  I am asking because my
oldest known ancestor who I have found >from my research was Boruch Ber
TACHNA who was a Levy.  I am trying to see if there could be any way to
suppose if Rabbi Boruch Ber LEIBOWITZ could possibly be related to my
family.

The surname LEIBOWITZ denotes that he was of the family of Leib or was a
descendant of a man named Leib.  My ancestor Boruch Ber TACHNA had many
grandchildren and great grandchildren who were named Leib.  I am
wondering if perhaps there may be a common ancestry.  The TACHNA family
is >from the tribe of Levy and ascertaining if Rabbi Boruch Ber LEIBOWITZ
was a Levy could help discern the possibility of any common family relation.

Locating where someone was cremated (near Bordeaux), Anice Hall #france

Joyaa Antares
 

Hi All,

I have learnt that a cousin, Anice Hall (nee Zausmer), was cremated in or
near Bordeaux shortly after her death, which is believed to be 11th or 12th
October 1987.
Is there any way to establish in which crematorium she was cremated?
Thanks. Best wishes to all.

Revision Lists #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

Our Revision List team has started working on a new set of records for the
Revision Lists. In this new load (in June, 2019) we will have sets of
records for Kishinev, Bendery, Ataki, Faleshty, Izmail, Romanenko colony and
more.

At the beginning of February you will get a table of what records are in
progress.

There is one thing I want to share with you, and possible to get an advice.
I always wanted for each set of records display for you Title page of the
set, as well as Ending pages. The ending pages in many cases have
signatures of some of the members of the community. Today I looked at some
microfilms, we have in many cases a "second" set of the same records. Well,
maybe not exactly the same, that is why I am going thru the records and if
there are differences or missing pages, we will take records >from the
"second" copy. I worked with Ataki set ("second" copy), and found after a
full Revision, there are signatures (in Hebrew/Yiddish) of about 150 people,
probably heads of households, and I believe that this might be of interest
to many of you. I remember how I was happy when found in one of the
Revisions a signature of my great great great grandfather...

The question is, how we going to process these pages? It is not just
translation/transcribing, we need to display the images. I am going to
consult with JewishGen on this, and possible for now, we can have these
signature documents at our Bessarabia SIG database.

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

Shabbat Shalom,
Yefim Kogan

Question About the Yiddish Author Jacob Dinezon #warsaw #poland

Scott Davis
 

For the past several years I have been researching the life and career
of the renowned 19th-century Yiddish author Jacob Dinezon (Yankev
Dineson, Dinesohn, Dienesohn) who died in Warsaw on August 29, 1919 (3
Elul 5639). This year, 2019, marks Dinezon's 100th yortsayt.

During the final 25 years or so of his life, Dinezon lived with his
sister and her family (including two daughters) at Dzielna No. 15 and
Karmelicka No. 29 in Warsaw. His sister apparently owned a shop that
sold "fancy pens."

Although she is referred to in the Warsaw Yiddish newspaper at the
time of his death, as hard as I've tried, I have not been able to come
up with Dinezon's sister's name. As an avid reader of the Warszawa
Research Group, I am hoping that someone here might be able to offer
some information or additional avenues for research.

Thank you so much for any thoughts and suggestions.
