WALZER from Skala; related families from modern-day Ukraine, Moldova #galicia

Jeff Miller
 

According to family information, "Frank" (Ephroim Menasche) WALTZER,
born 12 Mar 1893 Skala, Galicia, Austria [present day Ukraine]. He was
the second of four children of Abraham Yehuda Leib WALZER.

Abraham was born 15 Dec 1858 Skala, Austria, d. 30 Nov 1944 in
Brooklyn, NY. Abraham was married to Udie "Ida" FREDER who was born
1862 Rosjejewo, Lubuskie, Poland.

In the U.S., the family of Lizzie FRAIDER and Frank WALZER lived in
Brooklyn, NY; Litchfield, Connecticut; Monroe Township, New Jersey;
and later in other places in New Jersey and Massachusetts.

I have various family members >from Kuzmin, Zhvanets, and other places
in and around Ukraine, Moldova, Romania; Beatrice WALTZER WOLFE is
still living; a Henry LIPSHITZ who married Shirley WALTZER whose family
took the surname WALTZER. Their three children include Joellen, Alyssa
and Frank. I also have TRACHTENBROIT, ROTHENBERG >from Iasi,
Romania, BRASLOWSKY, SCHIEB who are related.

I'm looking for recommendations for research and resources in the
Gesher Galicia that may be of help, and, of course, for contacts related
to the family. Family contacts can be made to me directly at
singingtm@comcast.net

Thanks for any response,

Yizkor Book Project, December 2012 #courland #latvia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Another year has passed, eh? A great deal went on in the Yizkor book Project
during 2012 and if to express this as basic figures, during the past year we
added 71 new books, 75 and carried out 400 updates of existing projects. Not
bad...

To add this, I have just been informed by Max Heffler, who leads the
dedicated team updating our necrology database, that in the last quarter of
2012 no fewer than 24,808 family names were added to this extremely
important database which can be viewed at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/ A remarkable achievement and
deserving of a hearty thank you to the team members!

If you are interested seeing facts and figures >from previous years relating
to the YB Project, you are welcome to have a peek at our "Development of the
Yizkor Book Project" in which you'll see data relating to our project going
back to 1999! http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/YB_History.html Whilst you're
there you might also be interested in seeing how we came about sometime in
the middle 1990's.

And whilst you're in our site, I warmly recommending visiting our main page
at http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ where, amongst other things, you'll see
a list of 400 volunteers who have contributed towards the YB Project over
the years. The list is far >from complete and if you have yet to appear there
and have played a part in the YB Project, be assured that with time I hope
to add in all of those who definitely deserve recognition for their part,
big and small, bringing the project to what it is today.

Finally, I am extremely excited to report that our tenth Yizkor Book in
Print is now available - "Yizkor Book of the Jewish Community in Dzialoszyce
and Surroundings". For those who are unfamiliar with this particular
project, in July 2011we begun making hard-copies of books that have been
completely translated and selling them to the public a very modest cost. The
project is being led at the very capable hands of Joel Alpert and if you are
interested in learning more about this project, I welcome you to visit the
following page http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html to see what books
are already available and what books are on their way.

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Another year has passed, eh? A great deal went on in the Yizkor book Project
during 2012 and if to express this as basic figures, during the past year we
added 71 new books, 75 and carried out 400 updates of existing projects. Not
bad...

To add this, I have just been informed by Max Heffler, who leads the
dedicated team updating our necrology database, that in the last quarter of
2012 no fewer than 24,808 family names were added to this extremely
important database which can be viewed at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/ A remarkable achievement and
deserving of a hearty thank you to the team members!

If you are interested seeing facts and figures >from previous years relating
to the YB Project, you are welcome to have a peek at our "Development of the
Yizkor Book Project" in which you'll see data relating to our project going
back to 1999! http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/YB_History.html Whilst you're
there you might also be interested in seeing how we came about sometime in
the middle 1990's.

And whilst you're in our site, I warmly recommending visiting our main page
at http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ where, amongst other things, you'll see
a list of 400 volunteers who have contributed towards the YB Project over
the years. The list is far >from complete and if you have yet to appear there
and have played a part in the YB Project, be assured that with time I hope
to add in all of those who definitely deserve recognition for their part,
big and small, bringing the project to what it is today.

Finally, I am extremely excited to report that our tenth Yizkor Book in
Print is now available - "Yizkor Book of the Jewish Community in Dzialoszyce
and Surroundings". For those who are unfamiliar with this particular
project, in July 2011we begun making hard-copies of books that have been
completely translated and selling them to the public a very modest cost. The
project is being led at the very capable hands of Joel Alpert and if you are
interested in learning more about this project, I welcome you to visit the
following page http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html to see what books
are already available and what books are on their way.

Simon Feldman/Samuel Fielding, Hull #unitedkingdom

I am trying to find information about the origins of my gg-grandfather Simon Feldman who lived
in Hull.
I know that he married outside the faith in Jan 1860, and that the records give his fatherâ??s
name as Samuel. Simonâ??s birthplace is listed a Poland in the 1861 census.
In subsequent censuses Simonâ??s name has morphed into Sam/Samuel Fielding. Simon
and Mary Ann had 11 children between 1860 and 1884, all of whom were registered as
Feldman.  Their seventh child, Herbert, was my great grandfather.
Any suggestions about how to proceed with this search would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Departure information from Trieste #general

Mark Schwartz
 

Happy New Year. I posted this question several years ago and did not receive a
response. One more try...I have a relative that departed Trieste in 1904 for New
York. Is anyone aware of records of departures >from Trieste during that period of
time? In 1904 Trieste was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire and not a part of
Italy.

Thank you.

Posting of my blog on my family history #general

Norbert Weinberg <norofra@...>
 

I have been working on an account of my family that reaches across several SIG
areas: Galicia,Austria-Czech, German, and Rabbinic. Because of this spread, the
material I have sometimes fits one group, sometime another. For that reason, the
moderator of RavSIG suggested that I post on the main Jewish Gen discussion group.
I was also told there was one discussion group dedicated to Holocaust research, but
I haven't found it.

My writings follow the account of my father, Rabbi Dr. William (Wilhelm)Weinberg,
who served as first State Rabbi of Hesse after the Shoah, and of my mother, Irene
Weinberg, who survived in Lwow and Warsaw as an Aryan. At present, I have completed
my father's experiences through his escape to the Soviet lines. Future accounts
will cover life under the Soviets and then the return to Austria. In the future, I
will be researching original documents >from the period of the She'rit Hapleitah and
the revival of Jewish life in the years after the Shoah. I want to be able to post
this information so it is accessible to as large an audience as possible, since
information in it covers so many areas.
