RACHEL JOYCE <rjj@...>
 

Greetings >from Minneapolis. I am trying to locate my biological father,
Herbert Melvin Popper. He would be about 70-75 years of age and he
lived in New York. I think his family was >from Austria, but I don't
know any of my "Popper" family, so I am not certain. I am also
interested in any information about the Popper family history. Can
anyone shed light on my life-long mystery?
Regards, Rachel Popper

Greetings >from Wales...........

Please excuse me if I am wasting your time but this is posted in great
hopes of some positive result...............

I have a friend whose mother came >from Poland in 1938. They are Jewish
people. My friend's mother was here in UK when the borders closed and
later, as far as is known, her entire family perished in the Holocaust
during the Second World War. Many searches have been made of newspapers
and books and recently this lady made a visit to her homeland for the
first time since she came here - but still the search continues.......

The family names are : ZAJD ROTTER

The town is : Chmielnik

If these names are familiar or if anyone can shed any light whatsoever
that might be helpful, my friends, and I, would be most grateful.

Thank you
Sylvester Crowley


Searching: SCHARF from Zbarazh #general

Irene Scharf <ischarf@...>
 

I am a descendant of a man why came to the shtetl Zbarazh (W of Lvov) in
about the 1830-1840s. Apparently, he was avoiding induction into the
Russian Army. It is said that he name when he arrived was ARAK, but I
believe that he was >from a place named ARAK (possibly W. of Budapest,
although there are also ARAKS in Algeria and Iran), so they called him
ARAK. Anyway, the story is that he was given the name SCHARF >from a
gravestone in the shtetl. I'm trying to find out who he was; where he
was from; and other descendants of THAT SCHARF >from Zbarazh. Can
anyone help with records I might review, or places to research, or
perhaps family histories that could include this man?

This man, now SCHARF, eventually married a woman who lived to 104 yrs.
old; they had a son, Simon -Shimshun-, who married Bessie Pickholtz and
when she died young (they had a daughter), a woman named
Kotcher/Katcher. They had 3 children, Libby, Clara, and Philip, my
grandfather, in 1876; a tinsmith, Philip came to the US in 1905 to E.New
York, then Flatbush. Because Bessie, Philip's mother, died young,
Philip was raised by his grandparents, the former ARAK and his wife.
Philip's parents, Simon and [blank] Kotcher Scharf, were caretakers of
a/the Buber estate.

Philip married Sarah Redner, born Skalat, 1884, my grandmother, who came
to the US in 1907.

Can anyone help me find this ARAK relation?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hello JGenners:

I think my great grandmother whose name in English was Anne Sears was
really Chana Sher. If any of you have a Chana Sher in your family from
Lithuania, please respond privately. Thanks in advance.

Searching: HIRSCH, SUESSLEIN and G.RUEFF #general

MBernet@...
 

An Alsatian genealogy expert, not Jewish, Francis BUSSER, cites as a Jewish
expert on Alsatian Jews one G. RUEFF. I do not know where he lived, but it
was some years ago and Rueff had in addition been a radio ham and,
according to Busser, "very religious."

Busser attributes to Rueff his belief that "Until the beginning of the 19th
Century . . . Jewish families in which most of the boys were named
Suesslein/Suessel, or Hirsch, or both." Busser believes that Rueff was
talking mainly about Weissenburg, Heilbronn and Frankfurt.

I had never heard eslewhere of any such tradition. Is anyone else aware of
such a custom?

HOWEVER, my Bernet family tree is headed by one HIRSCH (father's name
unknown) who settled in Frensdorf near Bamberg (Bavaria) in the mid-17th
century and there fathered a son Suessel Hirsch, whose sons all took the
last name Suesslein. The names Suessel/Suesslein subsequently alternated in
various branches of the family with Hirsch for many generations.

I would appreciate any information on G. Rueff, and any information on any
other family in which the Hirsch/Suessel names alternated.

Thanks
Michael Bernet

Searching: NEGRI #general

steves <steves@...>
 

I am interested in the roots of my family.

We are currently called Schwartz. We can form Austria (Galicia).

BUT, we came to Galicia >from Milan where we were called Negri. Currently
there is a Milano Negri family that claims not to have Jewish roots.

Before Milano we were in Spain where, I am told we were also called
Negri. I have heard two stories: one that we came form mid Spain, near
Navarre, the other that we came >from Valencia.

I know that the Valencia Negris migrates, some to Italy (probably to
Longhorn) others to the Middle east where they became Balascio or
Valenscio if they were light skinned or Swade ( arabic for Black) if they
were light skinned. Some Negris also went to Brazil or Turkey.

MODERATOR NOTE: We assume that your name is Steve Schwartz and that you
are probably in Seattle. In the future, please include this information
explicitly in your posts. Also, put the surnames you are searching in ALL
CAPS>

Hi,

If you have ever heard about any person whose name is Taubenkibel,
please contact me. Now, I know only two persons in the world who have
this name ! The origin of the family should be Podhajce (Poland), and
