First Stavishter Benevolent Assn. #ukraine

Hello fellow Stavisht descendants,

I am wondering if any of you have a list, or know if one exists, for the members of the First
Stavishter Benevolent Association? I would also like to know if anyone holds the papers, letters,
lists of any kind associated with that group. Hopefully they still exist and were not
discarded.

I remembers my grandparents used to take us to large picnics for this group. They called it the
"Family" picnics, even though they were not relatives!

Thank you for any information.

Seeking relatives #ukraine

nk
 

Hello,
I am looking for information on my maternal grandparents. My
grandmother, Zisel Karlik, was born in Kitay Gorod (pronounced in
Yiddish as Ketared), Podolya Gubernia around 1895. Her parents names
were Nuchem and Sobel Karlik. She had 2 sisters, Rochel and Yetta, and
3 brothers, Shike, Mordechai and Berel. She immigrated to Winnipeg,
Canada around 1920. Her brothers immigrated to Sao Paulo, Brazil. I
know nothing of my great grandparents other than their names.

My grandfather, Yisroel Greenberg was born in Kamenyy Brod (pronounced
Komnebrod in Yiddish), Voliner Gubernia, around 1890. His parents
names were Maier and Edis. He had about 13 siblings, of whom, the only
names I know are Rivka and Esther. He immigrated to Winnipeg around
1915. He had relatives who were in shoe manufacturing in the Boston
area.

Any information would be appreciated, including information on the
shtetlach. Thanks for your help.

Looking for Ingrid BECKER, Kindertransport, Berlin-UK #germany #poland #danzig #gdansk

Tamar Amit <tamar.amit@...>
 

Hello Siggers,

I am looking for an Ingrid BECKER.
I now know that she was related probably born to Sally and Selma
(nee CZARLINSKI-ZYDOWER) BECKER in the Berlin area.
She was sent to England in the Kindertransport.
All I know afterwards is that she grew up in England, married a
BECKER or BEKER and last was residing in "Wotton under edge"
Gloustershire. I assume she was born somewhere in the late 1920s.

I have a "last known address" for Selma (her possible mother) at
Vateranenstr. 21, Berlin.
Both Sally and Selma came there >from Danzig (Gdansk). Sally fought for
Germany in WWI and was left injured.

My grandmother was Sally's sister so I would realy appreciate any help
locating Ingrid.

Many thanks for any possible research clues (tamar.amit@gmail.com).

Dr Kaplun Kogan - Stockholm #scandinavia

משפחת מקנלי <mcnally@...>
 

Dr Kaplun KOGAN was my wife's Great Grandfather. He was born in Russia in
1888. He moved to Germany for academic reasons. There he published many
pamphlets and articles on Jewish affairs, and was active in German Zionist
Circles. At some time after the rise of the Nazis he fled to Sweden. He
worked at the University of Stockholm. He is described as a trustee of the
Hebrew University. I believe that he had perhaps a second wife (having
divorced >from his first wife who fled Germany for U.S.A). He died in
Stockholm in 1948. In that same year one of his sons (twins) Gideon died
during Israel's War of Independence. His twin brother, Yosef died earlier
that year. My wife's Grandmother, Mira died in 1987. My wife's Uncle visited
Stockholm in 1970 and remembers the grave to have been in the Jewish
cemetery. He also met Wolf's wife/partner.

In the Royal Swedish Library databases i found 8 entries for him. 5 books, 2
articles which appeared in something called Judisk tidskrift which i believe
must be some kind of community newspaper/magazine. Most interesting of all
is the following

Ehrenpreis, Marcus, 1869-1951 (author)

Wladimir W Kaplun-Kogan in memoriam/ M.E.

1948

IN : Judisk Tidskrift, Stockholm 1928-1967

1948 (21) , s. 92

Article/Chapter

I understand this to have been some kind of an obituary. If anyone could
help me get a copy of this i would be most grateful (or indeed suggest a way
of doing so). Of course anything else vis-a-vis his time in Sweden, his time
at the University, his burial place or whatever would provide invaluable
information.

Until I began my research my wife's family knew little or nothing about his
achievements. This year, 60 years since his death, and that of his son, and
the 60th anniversary of Israel's independence I would like to provide them
with as full a picture as possible.

With Many Thanks And Best Wishes

Rosa SCHARFSTEIN and Daniel TSCHERNIA #scandinavia

Adam Katzeff <Adam.Katzeff@...>
 

Dear all,

On behalf of a relative I'm searching information on the family of his aunt
Rosa SCHARFSTEIN and her husband Daniel TSCHERNIA (eventually TSCHERNJA or
TCHERNIA). The family lived in Copenhagen and together Rosa and Daniel had
two children, Nadja and David. Based on the birthdates of Rosa's two
sisters, I'm guessing she was born in the 1890's or early 20th century.

All information, dates of birth, death and marriage as well as information
on the children and their families are welcome.

Best regards,

Seeking info #general

Krause, Terry <TKrause@...>
 

Hello,

I am doing some research on my father-in-law OBM who was a policeman in
Lodz during the 1930's. Family members have reported that the Soviets
put him in jail, where he stayed until he was liberated in 1945. I'm
pretty sure he was never sent to Siberia, so where might he have been
while in prison? Might it have been in Poland? Under whose auspices?

Any direction would be greatly appreciated.

Searching for survivors from Dunayevtsy, Ukraine #ukraine

Carol Rombro Rider
 

I am in touch with a gentleman by the name of Boris Levin, who was born in
Smotrich, Ukraine, about 25 km >from Dunayevtsy, Ukraine. The Jews knew this
town by the name of Dinovitz. Boris went to school in Dinovitz, and would
like to be in touch with anyone who may have gone to school with him. I am
going to guess that Mr. Levin is in his 80's although I am not certain.

If you know of any survivors of this town, please ask them if they may have
known Mr. Levin OR would like to be in touch with him. He is going to
Dinovitz in the spring, to visit the grave of his mother. Like many other Jews
during the war, she was buried alive in the salt mine in the town.

Thank you,
