Mazel tov! and can I say me too?! My mother and I just returned
from New York City Today where we met our newly discovered (3rd
to my mother and 4th to me) cousins >from Israel. We had a wonderful
non-stop talking lunch! I found cousins Pat and Moshe Zabari through
the wonderful help of the Sachnut in Israel, Lancy Presser Spalter
of the Suchustow community forum, and David Halpern in London--
another new cousin I met through the family finder web site.
This is very exciting. I add my thoughts in order to thank the
community and to encourage others not to give up. I know I will
find everyone else, its just a matter of time. As Moshe said today
at lunch, "this is the time of the Moshiach for everyones efforts
to reconnect the diaspora are bringing the dead back to life." Amen.

Need help interpreting H.I.A.S. card #general

Viktor Lewin
 

Could someone kindly scan and send, either to Viewmate or to me personally,
a copy of a H.I.A.S. card issued after the war ? I received my parents'
arrival card today and the printing is so sketchy that it is very difficult
to decipher. Hopefully using a comparable form I will be able to fill in the
blank spaces.
Thank you.

Mississauga, Ontario, Canada Help Please #general

Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

Is there someone in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada who can help me with
information on the city? I have an address for a relative, but there isn't
a listing in the online phone directory in her name.

I am searching for Jane Morris, daughter of Charles Morris who died in 1998.
I don't believe Jane ever married, and she is supposed to be living on
Mississauga Valley Blvd according to her 92 year old uncle in New York City.
Jane is probably in her sixties, originally >from New York, either New York
City or Albany.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer,

Dear friends, for years I have searching long lost relatives.

Unfortunately they are in Chile and I am in Canada, but a

the rest of the Argentinean part of the family they never new
they had and neither did we.
A very emotional thanks to all of you for your wonderful work.

Re: 1910 Jewish Cemetery Funeral #unitedkingdom

Dear Sandi,

A little information would go a long way. Can you provide us with
any details about the card? Does it give the funeral home? Does it
state the name of the cemetery? If the burial took place in London,
then there are a couple of things you could do. One is to contact the
United Synagogue Burial Society. Additionally, you can check the
pages of the Jewish Chronicle for any burials on that date and see if
any names "ring a bell."

Good luck,

Looking for information on Dr. YAAKOV (JACOB) ROBINSON (1889-1977) #lithuania

Omry Kaplan Feuereisen <ok@...>
 

Hi everybody,

I'm writing a PhD on Dr. YAAKOV (JACOB) ROBINSON and the Institute of
Jewish Affairs (which he founded) at the Simon-Dubnow-Institute for
Jewish History and Culture in Leipzig, Germany (www.dubnow.de). I'm
looking for any information concerning family, biography, work of JACOB
ROBINSON.

He was born in SEREJ (SEIRIJAI) in 1889. His father's name was
DAVID. He had at least five brothers: AARON, ABRAHAM, NATHAN, NEHEMIAH
and PINCUS ROBINSON. NEHEMIAH and NATHAN were both born in VISHTINETZ
(VISTYTIS), the former in 1898, the latter in 1904. Just like his
brother YAAKOV, NEHEMIAH became a great international lawyer, director
of the Institue of Jewish Affairs and drafter of the Reparations
Agreements between Germany and Israel and between Germany and the
Conference on Jewish Material Claims. NATHAN ROBINSON was a very
prominent physicist and director of the Solar Laboratory at the Haifa
Technion. Both NEHEMIAH and NATHAN ROBINSON died in 1964. About the
other brothers I haven't been able to gather any additional information.

There is very little material on YAAKOV ROBINSON's life. Short entries
in different Jewish Encyclopedias; some information in "Yahadut Lita" -
one of whose editors he himself was - and in the Yiddish "Lite". I spent
several weeks in the American Jewish Archives in Cincinnati, where I
found considerable material on YAAKOV ROBINSON's activities as director
of the Institute of Jewish Affairs. I was at the Yad Vashem Archives and
at the Central Zionist Archives in Jerusalem. But I haven't found any
relevant information on ROBINSON's background, his parents, his family,
his childhood, his youth, his activities in the 1930s (when he in a
sense disappeared >from the international stage), his arrival to the US
etc.

YAAKOV ROBINSON had married CLARA KATZ (1897-1976). They had two
daughters: ATHALIE (born 1925) and VITA (1928-1955). ATHALIE ROBINSON
lives in NYC, is not healthy and for some reason doesn't want to talk to
anyone about her father.

I'd be immensely grateful for any pieces of information on YAAKOV
ROBINSON, his parents, his family, his activities etc.

Yours sincerely,

Omry K. Feuereisen, ok@nebt.org, feuereisen@dubnow.de, Berlin/Leipzig,
