Elaine,

"Blawatny" (shop) or "Blawatnik" (occupation) translates to
English as haberdasher. Pilsudskiego (work address: square
or street) is the name of the Polish interwar period marshal
and statesman.

There are quite a few persons named Kaschmann, 23 in the Residentenliste and
9 in the 1939 census. There is a David Kaschmann born 12/1/1894 in
Ungedanken/Fritzlar-Homberg. In 1939 David lived in Kassel as did a number
of other persons with that surname. David died in Brandenburg 1/10/40. Of
the Kaschmanns, 4 were born in Grossroppenhausen --Emanuel, Julius, Max and
Mentel. David is apparently mentioned in a book, Juedisches Leben in einem
Hessischen Dorf by Ludwig Rothschild.

JGS of Long Island Meeting #general

Jackie Wasserstein
 

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island invites you to join us at our
Sunday, December 18, meeting.

Topic: "Hassidim In Every Family Tree and The Genealogical Implications of
Chassidic Ancestry"

Guest Speaker Rafi Gruber will focus on showing how all Jewish family trees
have at least one Chassidic leaf. Even if your ancestors weren't orthodox
in Europe or here, some may have been followers of a specific Chassidic
Rabbi, especially in the Shetls of Eastern Europe. Chassidism was founded in
18th century East Europe by Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov as an overly
legalistic Judaism.

Rafi Gruber is responsible for documenting the lives of celebrities and
scholars through his work at L.A.'s Museum of Tolerance, the Ellis Island
Museum and more. He was also featured in a PBS special about Americans
tracing their family roots.

Time: 2:00 PM
Place:Mid-Island Y JCC 45 Manetto Hill Road Plainview, New York

Admission is free and all are welcome.

Hiring a researcher in Latvia #latvia

Sandra Nudelman <sandranudelman@...>
 

I am starting to research two of my ancestors who, according to a
single document each (for one, a passenger list, for the other, a
brother's naturalization papers) came >from "Riga." I have not had
much luck finding them through the online databases and am considering
hiring a private researcher.

Please let me know if you have had a good experience with a specific
researcher. In addition, since the link of ancestors is so tenuous to
the region, I am hesitant to pay several hundred dollars upfront for
an extensive tree, when, in reality, there may be no link. Has anyone
had success proposing a more modest, upfront fee with specific
research milestones?

Thanks,

Sandra

My thanks also to Joel Ratner #lithuania

LEW & CARLA CHILTON
 

Because of Joel, I was able to trace my grandmother's first husband's
family - MARMUT - in Vilnius back for several generations.
The records also show who he married after he and my grandmother
divorced in 1897.

But the most important bit of information that I had hoped to
obtain >from the Vilnius metrical records still eludes me:
the birth of my grandmother's only child >from her first marriage.
She was my mother's half-sister, and, according to family lore,
became a nurse and died in the war (WWI or WWII?). I possess
her portrait that she mailed to her mother (my grandmother) in
America in approximately 1917 when she was 21 years old.

So thanks Joel for providing the tools that have allowed me
to decipher yet another chapter in my family saga.
The very best to you!
