Re: Skalat-Czortkow-Karlin connections #poland

Tonka Pikholz writes in an article in the second Skalat book about the annual
visits of the Husiatyner, who was closely related to the Czortkower. I don't
think that Czortkow had a specific competitive presence.

Israel P.

I would be happy to hear comment as to the above, as regards to the possible
presence of Chortov Chassidut in Skalat, was there any connection between
Chortkow and Karlin. Unfortunately, my greatuncle has passed on many years
ago and most of his descendants, including R' Yacov Meir, do not have much
knowledge as to the specific chassidic affiliations of our ancestors, so
that I have to learn about possible affiliation more by presumption than by
actual facts.

Thank you

What is Garejoinne, Austria in 1899? #poland

Linda Shefler
 

The 1899 ship's manifest for siblings Tobias and Harma FELBER lists their
place of origin as Garejoinne, Austria. I have used Shetle Seekers to try
and determine what Garejoinne really is, without success. I don't know for
sure, but will hazard a guess that it's located east of Krakow, *possibly*
in the vicinity of Tarnow. If someone feels that it's a town located
elsewhere please don't hesitate to make that suggestion, as I'm not 100%
sure that near Tarnow is the correct neighborhood.

Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.

If you are interested in the events in Vilna in 1919, or any other years
from 1899 to the present, pay a visit to www.ajcarchives , the archives of
the American Jewish Committee. On this site, you will find the American
Jewish Year Book, published annually by the AJC since 1899. If you refer to
the editions for 5680 [1919 - 1920] and 5681 [1920 - 1921], you will find
day to day accounts of the events that took place in Vilna. You can download
each issue, and using Adobe Reader, search for the term "Vilna". This can be
done in Adobe by using the button which looks like a pair of binoculars.
Adobe will search the document for every instance of the word Vilna.

Looking for descendants of Rudi and Hans JACOBSON from Berlin #general

robcussel@...
 

Viewmate 10103 shows a photograph of a lady and her two children taken in
1966, when they lived in the New York City area.

I think that the woman is the sister of brothers, Rudi and Hans JACOBSO(H)N from
Berlin. Hans was killed in the Holocaust, but Rudi and his sister survived
Auschwitz and were last seen in NYC and Washington Height. I have clear evidence
that both brothers knew the Cussel family in Berlin before and during the war and
the descendants might be able to shed some light on what happened to my family.

The two children pictured would have been born around 1946 to 1949 and would be in
their fifties now.  If you recognize them or their mother, please contact me as
the Jacobsons and Cussels of Berlin have a strong family connection.

I do not know the married name of "Sis" Jacobson, but her first name might have
been "Inge". This photo was labeled on the back, "Sister of Rudy Jacobsohn". I
have obtained this photograph >from relative of the Jacobsons in Philadelphia.

I would greatly appreciate hearing >from anyone who might know their whereabouts or
anything about them, as this would greatly aid my family research.

SPINKEN from Marmorstigetz Romania #romania

M&MSchejtman <mmschejtman@...>
 

Dear Genners,
The Israeli radio has a daily segment called
"The department for searching lost relatives".
This program was originally aired after the 2nd World War to help Israelis
who survived, find lost relatives.
It has now been reinstated and has over 150 daily requests for searches. only
4-5 are aired every day.
You can listen to this program live on the Israeli radio website for Reshet Bet
http://bet.iba.org.il/ click top left "bet live". The program is aired
Sun-Thurs at 2:45 PM Israel time in Hebrew.

On today's program a man whose name is Gedalia Raff is looking for Boomi.
Boomi is Adolf SPINKEN b. March 1st 1930 in Marmorstigetz.
Mr.Raff received this information>from the Buchenwald registrations.
He and Boomi arrived in Buchenwald >from Auschwitz on 24.5.1944 and were put in
cabin #8.
Boomi's ID number was 551041.
In 1945 they were transfered to a camp in Berg on the Alster. Then the Germans
marched them to Czecosolvakia. They escaped together and found themselves in
Kasczov (spelling?) at Josef Carasek's house. He knew what they were but took
them in anyway and helped them survive till the end of the war. Aferwards each
man returned to his home.
Gedalia, whose name was Jule SERLOWICZ, has looked for Boomi through the Red
Croos, the Central Zionist Archive and the Marmorstigetz survivors or
Landsmenschaft.
He wants to tell Boomi that the family of the farmer Josef Carasek received the
honor of Righteous Gentile at a ceremony at Yad Vashem.

If anyone has heard of Adolf SPINKEN or any of his family, they
can contact the program at:
