The LIPIS family #general

Alyssa Freeman
 

I have a mystery in my family that I'm hoping someone can help me
solve. My 2x great-aunt, Leah (Lena) LIPIS (1875 - 1934) came through
Ellis Island in 1913 with 5 children, whom I thought were all her
children. My mom had never heard about one of them and it turns out
she was a cousin (Bessie Lipis - eventually Bessie Dreskin, then
finally Bessie Kaplan (1897 - 1978). We've discovered that her
father's name was Mordecai Lewis Lipis (1880 - 1959). Clearly, he was
very young when he had her. What we're missing is her mother's name
and what happened - why she came with her aunt and didn't stay with
her father, and what happened to her mother. Mordecai was married
three times in his life. One wife was Fanny, another was Ida, and the
third one - whose name we don't know - was Bessie's mother. Mordecai's
father was either User or Asher Lipis/Lipes/Liebes (1856 - 1946). He
had a bunch of children, including Mordecai and Israel (Leah's
husband). If anyone has these people in their family tree and can help
me out with who Bessie's mother was, I would be very greatful! I'd
also like to know who User's/Asher's wife was. Thanks so much!

Dear GerSig-List-Readers,

I am planning to visit the Hamburg "Ohlsdorf Jewish Cemetetery" soon
(with a long list of graves to find and visit).

If you know that your ancestors have been laid to rest at this specific
cemetery I'll do my best to find the tombstone and volunteer to
take a photograph or two. I would need the name and the code in the
column "Grablage", i.e. "Abraham G. A11-296.

You can search the grave-register via:

http://www.juedischer-friedhof-altona.de/img/Datenbanken/ilandkoppel_grabregister.pdf

Please correspond privately with your request.

Suggestions for finding righteous gentile in Monowice (Near Oswiecim) Poland #general

George <shelev56@...>
 

Hello, My mother told me that a righteous gentile hid my uncle during
the War. Unfortunately, my uncle did not survive. I have only
limited information about him, yet the information might be
identifying. His name was Jaszek and he was a guard at the lakes in
Monowice, Poland (next to Oswiecim (Auschwitz). I was thinking maybe
someone could help me communicate with a high school history teacher
or principal in the town of Monowice and maybe they could do a school
project to locate his descendants. Any other ideas? Maybe someone
knows Polish or Jewish students in Poland who could help me honor him.

Re: Trying to determine a town name on a ship's passenger list #general

Mark Goldstein posted cropped images of town names in Russia from
Hamburg departure and New York arrival manifests for Israel GARFINKEL
in 1913 asking for the town of origin.

Towns that were in Russia before WWI are now in various countries
including Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Poland, Ukraine, Moldova and,
less likely, Russia.
When trying to identify an unknown ancestral town, be sure to obtain
all possible family documents >from Ancestry.
Search JewishGen Gazetteer by distance and direction (or by radius)
from a known location.
When trying to decipher handwriting, the entire page and the town name
in the index are helpful.

The indexed town names for last residence and place of birth are Buter
and Ruyans, Russia.
The passenger's naturalization documents say he was born in Rouzani,
Russia and last foreign residence was Byten, Russia. His WWII draft
registration lists birth place Rozana, Russia.

A search in JewishGen Gazetteer results in the significant Jewish
community of Byten, Belarus, in Slonim district, Grodno Gubernia,
Russian Empire before WWI and lists the nearby Jewish community of
Ruzhany 26 miles W.

Sherri Vendetti asks about "Kafkas" and "Baki" in Russia, 1901. "Kafkas"
means Caucasus in Russian. Before the Russian Revolution, one of the
gubernii (provinces) in the Caucasus had its capital at Baku, now the
capital of Azerbaijan. The Azeri language name for Baku is Baki. This
area became part of the Russian Empire in the early 19th century.

I am still looking for a place (shtetl, maybe agricultural colony)
very close to Krivoy Rog (also named Krivvy Rig ( or Kryvyy Rih,
Ukraine: 47 55 N, 33 21 E) in Kherson region of Ukraine (formerly
Russian Empire).

I am not looking for Krivoie Ozero, though it may sound quite similar,
but Krivoy Ossen.

If someone does find a meaning for the suffix Ossen either in Hebrew,
Yiddisch, Rssian or Ukrainian , I will be thankful also.
I don't where this place is, but in Russian osen' means autumn.
