Rabbinical researcher wanted #general

Seflaum@...
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

I am looking for a reputable rabbinical researcher very familiar with
Ashkenazic dynasties in Poland. I already have some research and would
like to continue probing further into my family's history.

Please respond privately with any recommendations.

Names: Chanedvarika or Chana D'volka #general

Toby Brief
 

Two family members have referred to an ancestor as either "Chanedvarika"
or "Chana D'volka". This woman would have been born around 1890 in the
Volyn region. I have checked the JG archives, but found no reference to
either name.

Would this name be a diminutive or a nickname for Chana? (There were many
Chana's and Henia's in the family at that time)
Thanks

Search in Slonim #general

AIChernoff@...
 

I am trying to learn something about a person named Shraga Feitel, to
whom I may be distantly related. He lived in and died in Slonim in 1879
and was listed as being Motz (Moreh Tzedek) there for 55 years. I don't
know if he was identified by a last name. Are there any sources I could
approach to see whether there is information about him? Your help would
be appreciated.

Dear Genners,
The following is not strictly genealogy, but it's a mitzva (hashavat
aveida), so please see if you can help. I got the story >from Lenny
Ben-David of the Embassy of Israel, Washington DC.
A package of seforim, apparently belonging to a young couple (with no
address whatsoever), arrived at the Embassy of Israel in Washington. It
seems that someone at the post office had opened it, recognized its
Jewish content, and decided to send it over to the Embassy. The contents
are clearly part of a young couple's library.

Her name: Naomi Freeman. His name: Justin (Yehuda) Goldberg
The box contains half of a new Shas, and a handful of Artscroll-type of
books, including books for brides and grooms. It appears that the couple
got married about six months ago.

Two other clues:
1. An author named Malka Kaganoff personally signed
her book entitled "Dear Kallah" and dedicated it to Naomi.
2. The chattan or kallah received a sefer Tehillim at Elchanan
Greenberg's "aufruf" in Jerusalem six months ago.

These seforim have come too far to go ownerless. If anyone knows any of
the people mentioned above, or is aware of any link to them, please
help.
With many many thanks, and the bracha: Tizku BeMitzvot,
Yocheved Klausner

Salt Lake City #belarus

judy davis <judy1213@...>
 

I just read Sallyann's posting about the facilities in
Salt Lake City and I'd like to put in my 2 cents.
Last May my husband and I took a camping trip to
Arizona, Utah and Colorado==in Salt Lake City it is
possible to "camp" only a few miles West of Temple
Square--we tent camped, but most people in the park
were in RV's--Camping is a great option if you keep
kosher, as long as you are willing to be a veggie for
your trip, as Kosher meat is not easy to come by.
Also, camping reduces the cost of staying anywhere.
Less then a days drive to the east is Dinosaur
National Monument, where you can view the bones in
situe, of very early residents of the area.
(PS-Sallyann, are you related to any Amdurs from
Houston, Texas ?, They owned a furniture store)
