Shalom Yizkor Bookers,

I'm taking the opportunity to wish the many people involved in the JewishGen
Project* and their families a very sweet and fruitful New Year. Hoping that
our project will continue to grow in this coming year and will help you
learn and understand more about your past. As someone once said: "There is
no future without the past..."

* I have allusions that this is most of the world's Jewish population .;-)

Re: Cherkov Hasidim - Boryslaw #galicia

I recently received the translation of a book in which it states
that my great-grandfather David Russ was a (the?) leader of the
Cherkov Hasidim in Boryslaw, ca 1900.

So, two questions - who were the Cherkov Hasidim (followers of a
particular Rabbi?; I've googled and found a R. David Moshe from
Cherkov). Second, would they have kept any records that might
have survived? - which could, perhaps, give me more insight into
the life of my great-grandfather.
David,

"Cherkov" is a distorted name of town Chortko'w.
For Chortkov and Zlotopol-Chortkow Hasidic dynasty, please refer

novenlase location #ukraine

I am researching William Coleman and so far have his marriage license which states he is >from Novenlase (written as one word) in what was then Russia, reportedly Kiev Gubernia. He was born around 1888.
I am unable to locate a village/town even close to that spelling. Any suggestions?
Also, I cannot find his immigration papers. I know he changed his name at some point, but don't know what a Russian version might have been. His son thinks it might have been Kahlman, but is very unsure. Any suggestions on that end?
Thanks for your help.

re Hassel or Hassell Family #unitedkingdom

Anthony John Harbottle
 

Shalom Alekhem

My name is Ramon Lance Pilkington and I am writing to you to ask for help in
tracking down information about my Great Grandmother Nora Elizabeth
Hassell(Hassel or Hasel). It is said in the family that she had Jewish
ancestry. She was born either in 1879 or 1880 and either came >from the UK or
Germany or Poland. It is believed she came to New Zealand between 1881 to
1900 and married a Samuel Smith in 1901 at Levin New Zealand. I am finding
it very hard to get any information on her to where she was born and where
she came from. I hope you can help as not only will it be beneficial to the
family, but another part of the jigsaw will be put in place. I hope you can
help?

Shalom
Ramon Lance Pilkington.

The GRINBERG-MOSKOWITZ-KELLER Connection #unitedkingdom

Jeni ArmandezZiara <jeni.armandez@...>
 

Hello again Fellow Genners! I am elated to be able to say that after a decade
of looking for clues, my great-grandmother's name was Hana GRINBERG. Now I need
help dotting my i's and crossing my t's.

GGM: Hana GRINBERG (born in Botosani, Romania)
GGF: Harris MOSKOWITZ (born in Pale Settlement?)
GM: Rebecca KELLER (nee MOSKOWITZ) (born in Botosani, Romania)
GA: Brina or Brana LAWRENCE (nee MOSKOWITZ) (born in Botosani, Romania)
GA: Renee (or Lya Ratza) MOSKOWITZ (born in Botosani, Romania)

Hana and Harris most likely had a religious ceremony and not a civil one.
Perhaps they married when they came to the UK (Whitechapel), which I am
estimating to be between 1914-1919?

I am searching for the following:
Where are Hana (nee GRINBERG) and Harris MOSKOWITZ buried? They lived within
London for the rest of their lives. I am estimating family memory that they
passed between 1951-1958?

How do I find possible GRINBERG relatives in England/Romania?
Years ago, my uncle received a call >from a man claiming to be my Granny's
cousin and stating his last name was GRINBERG and lived in London; but uncle
didn't know anything and was pre-occupied taking care of Granny (who had
Parkinson's).

I am searching my my mum's cousin, Jacqueline Maureen WINTER (nee LAWRENCE).
Jackie was the daughter of John R. LAWRENCE and Brenda (Brina) MOSKOWITZ. We
feel she might know where Hana and Harris are buried because she was born and
raised in London. Mum would also love to re-connect. Last known address (many
years ago) was:
14 Henrietta Gardens
Bath, UK

I will also post the familiar message of searching for my estranged aunt,
Stella Rachel GERSON (nee KELLER) born in March 1935 in London to Theodore
and Rebecca KELLER. Divorced many years ago, so not sure if GERSON would
still be used. Last thought to be in Bristol or Brighton.

Many thanks!

PBS History Detectives on Jewish Farmer #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Here's an FYI -- this week's PBS TV show called History Detectives has a
segment about a farmhouse in Connecticut. It turns out to be a Jewish farm
and tells the story of the Jewish farmer of the early 20th Century in the
USA.

Some of you who have researched the Jewish farmers may find it a little
lacking or say I knew that but I think most people will enjoy the segment.
Right down to someone reading >from the Yiddish newspaper the Jewish Farmer
on a story everything the Jewish farmer needs to know about his cow.

There is a link to a story about the segment on their web site:
http://www.pbs.org/opb/historydetectives/
There is even a transcript of the segment which some people might find
helpful.

The show is airing this week on various PBS stations around the USA. It
is the second investigation of the show.

Enjoy!

Berthold BEITZ - list of Jews saved #general

David Scriven
 

Dear All,

Berthold BEITZ is a German industrialist who, like Schindler, saved many
Jews >from the Boryslaw/Drohobycz region by employing them in the
local oil company, so preventing them >from being transported to
the Belzec extermination camp.

Does anyone know if there is a list of those Jews who were saved?
In particular, I am interested in the photographer Gustaw RUSS.
