Re: Searching Joseph and Sylvia LIPOW of Chicago #general

Tilford Bartman <bartman@...>
 

Hello,

I have been searching for descendants of Joseph and Sylvia Lipow of
Chicago Ill. I believe Joseph LIPOW was my Grandmother's brother. On
my fathers application for US Citizenship it states that when he and
my grandmother entered the US in 1921 they where going to Joseph
LIPOW in Chicago, and in fact I know that they stayed in Chicago for
several months before moving to Passaic N.J. I recently got a copy
of Joseph Lipow's Death Certificate. He was born in 1897 and Died in
1983 at the age of 85. He owned a Dry Cleaning business at 2600 West
Rascher, Chicago. He is buried at Westlawn Cemetery, Norwood Park,
Ill, and the Funeral Home was Weinstein Menorah in Chicago.

I am most interested in finding his descendants. I'd like to hear
from anyone who may have knowledge of this family, or suggestions as
to how I may go about my search.

Thank you so much,

Tilford Bartman

Look up request: Rochester NY #general

Phoenixxph@...
 

Hello.

This is the first time I have asked for this kind of help. I hope it is
proper to do so.

If anyone has access to any census records for Rochester, NY (Monroe County)
1855 to latest available I would love to locate any listings for PHILIPSON
(possibly could be listed as PHILLIPSON).

There should definitely be listings in the 1915 census. Some given names
would be Mirriam (Esther), Rose, Samuel, Alma, Ruth, Stanley, Tina or
Christina, Julius, and Louis.

If any SIMON names appear there is a good chance they are also related. Rose
SIMON married Samuel PHILIPSON. Abraham SIMON was her father and Sarah/Sara
SCHNEIDER was Abraham's wife. Michael, Ray/Raymond, Anna, Dora (?), Ethel,
Gladys, Janet might be listed as well.

Thank you for any help.

Sincerely,
Phoebe Nix

Re: Brooklyn Addresses #general

LSHAPSKI <lshapski@...>
 

My mother's family lived on Christopher Ave. for many years. Her mother's
death certificate >from 1934 shows the address as 529 Christopher Ave., which I
believe is the address they were at for a long time. The 1920 census has them
at 517 Christopher Ave. Years ago, when my family drove past that area heading
elsewhere, we'd sometimes swing by to see what became of the old home. If I
remember correctly, on one visit, probably in the 1960s, it looked as if almost
all the houses on the block had been torn down, and only my mother's and the
one next door were still standing. These were tenement buildings. The
neighborhood was a terrible slum, and most of the houses (later, probably all
on that block) were torn down for urban renewal. I don't think, however, that
280 was on that exact block- as per my street guide to Brooklyn. But the
houses there may have met the same fate.

You might do better in getting more exact and current info. on some website in
which people reminisce about the old neighborhoods - or perhaps if the local
high school in Brownsville (Thomas Jefferson?) has a website.

Today, you can solve a relationship mystery!

JewishGen, Inc. and Family Tree DNA are pleased to announce that a
partnering agreement has been reached which places JewishGen'rs on the
cutting edge of scientific technology.

In development for over 6 months, it has been difficult to read all the
posts, watch the TV networks, read the newspapers and keep quiet all at the
same time.

This is a technology which may enable any one of us to break through the
brick wall so many of us face in traditional research!

Through this unique partnering arrangement between JewishGen and Family
Tree DNA, we are taking genealogical research into the new millennium with
DNA matching and statistically positive genetic proof of ancestral
relationships.

JewishGen plans to integrate the FTDNA Surname Library into our surname
database so everyone will be able to keep abreast of those surnames which
have already been genetically typed.

DNA tests have always been extremely expensive and hard to come by, much
beyond the means of the average person. Today, this partnership brings
this scientific tool within reach at $219 (U.S. dollars).

This exciting scientific tool can determine with a 99.9% certainty that
specific individuals are related. This nearly perfect degree of certainty
is achieved through the use of an 11-marker test which is deemed far
superior to the 4-marker tests currently being offered.

We want to assure everyone that a strict privacy policy is already in
place. For a full understanding of these and other concerns for privacy
please see "Legal Issues" by clicking on the button labeled Legal, Item 14
on the FAQ at http://www.jewishgen.org/dna.

With the inclusion of each participants' responses to questions of
geographic origin, the migratory history of the Jews of Europe may finally
be revealed.

Many of you may be familiar with the name, Prof. Michael Hammer, who is
co-author of the 1997 report on the Cohanin gene. Dr. Hammer is serving as
a special consultant to this JewishGen-FTDNA project. Dr. Hammer is also
scheduled as as a presenter at the upcoming summer seminar in Salt Lake City.

Testing is available for matching male and female ancestral lines, as well
as to determine the presence of the Cohanim gene. It's advisable for all
who are interested, to read the Family Tree DNA Frequently Asked Questions
(FAQ) for further information. You will find the FAQ button at our website
http://www.jewishgen.org/dna/.

Genealogy by genetics is something we have been hearing about more and more
in recent months. Now through this exciting partnership, it is something
which is taking center stage among those interested in genealogy.

JewishGen and FTDNA have made "Genealogy by Genetics" a reality!

If you are ready to solve your relationship mystery, encourage those with

The issue of the differences between Galicianers and non Galicianers...
is an interesting one. My grandfather and his brother John both spoke

Was it unusal for people to speak three languages c. 1885-1900's?

This discussion is excellent. Studying my Galician roots provokes these
thoughts: The multi-cultural mix of the Austrian Empire (and by the way,
my Galician family always referred to "Austria" as their place of orgin)
was far more diverse (and thereby cosmopolitan) than the Russian pale of
settlement.

Jewish Galicia does not appear to be overly ghetto-ized or segregated
communities in the market towns, at least. My reading of my Delatyn shtetl
page tells me that there were 2397 Jews out of a total population of 6018
in 1900. By 1910, 2997 Jews out of a total population of 7852 would
indicate Jewish population growth by 25% against a total population growth
of 30-31%. So, the market town became more multi-cultural. Merchants, like
my family, probably had to cater to different self identifying
ethnic/nationalistic customers. Their community had a Jewish summer resort
centered around mineral baths. It had Hutsul churches in the region and
thereby a native population that wasn't pan-germanic or advocating for
Polish or slavic culture. It was close to Roumania, too.

But, what doesn't make sense for me yet is the hasidic element. My
Galician family seemed far more "Germanic" in their preserved and practiced
Judaism than the emotional or mystical hasidic of my present understanding
of the hasidic.

Yet, the Delatyn Jewish Gen page says the Jewish population was Hasidic:
Sadgora and Vizhnitsa, according to cemetary records. Were they a
minority in their market town in their non hassidic practices, simply put,
Germanic Jews who came to their market town after looking for economic
opportunties? and what about secular Jews of the enlightment? Did they
live in such market towns, or did they all leave for Vienna and Berlin?

Re: Brooklyn Addresses #general

,
 

Dear Hy,
The area in which these addresses are located are in a section of Brooklyn
called Brownsville. It was a wonderful Jewish area as I was growing up
(1950s), with lovely stores along Pitkin Ave. many temples and even Yiddish
theater. Unfortunately the area has felt the slings and arrows of outrageous
fortune. Many of the houses are abandoned or have been knocked down. The
stores along Pitkin Ave. consist mainly of low priced merchandise. It is not
a safe neighborhood to be in.
That's the down side. Here's the good side. Since your family's
relationship goes back much further, I would suggest contacting the Hebrew
Educational Society which used to be located in Brownsville and is now
located in a different part of Brooklyn called Canarsie. Also, the Brooklyn
Public library (Grand Army Plaza Branch) and the Brooklyn Historical Society.
There may be old photos of the area available. All three places should have
e mail addresses.

My name is Trevor Pogroske currently residing in Sydney, Australia having
migrated >from Johannesburg, South Africa in 1995.
My late father Jack Pogroske (born PAKROISKIS) was born in Keidan in 1904
as was my wife's late father, Alec Bank. My father migrated to South
Africa in 1927 after spending 2 years in South America. My father's sister
Sarah migrated to the USA and married Abne Rosenthal . They lived in
Pitsburg and we met with them in 1984. My father's other brothers were :
1.Rachmiel Pokroy( changed his name on arrival in S outh Africa ) in the
late 1920's and married Gutel also ex Keidan.They lived in Pretoria and had
3 sons Solly, Arnold and Morris. They live in Johannesburg and Pretoria.

2. Avraham (changed name to Cohen to avoid military call up in
russia/Lithuania). He migrated to Boston USA about 1920. I met his 2 sons
when I visited USA in 1984.

My grandmother Rifka Pakroiskis, 2 uncles and 2 aunts and their respective
families were killed during the holocaust. The only names I recall were
Munke and Yitzchak. My Grandfather Moishe Pakroiskis died prior to the
holocaust and I would have thought that his grave may have been discovered
, however it is apparently not on the web site search.

I was delighted to discover the Web site and recognise many familiar names
referred to in the most interesting correspondence.
The various articles covering the History , Demography and many delightful
stories were able to resolve and answer many of the questions I was not
able to ask my late Father.

During the early 1960's I was able to assist one remaining family relative
who lived in Russia, born in Keidan prior to World War 2, immigrate to
Israel with his family.

I would be most interested to track my family history in Keidan and was
wondering if there are any other sources of Data available to assist with
such research.
I am aware the Seef , Krost and Bank families (Norman is my wife's cousin),
have had much involvement with the Keidan Society in South Africa.
I have also discovered there a number of families in Australia whose family
were originally >from Keidan and would like to revive the Keidan Society in
Sydney.

Fastastic work and research.

For Immediate Release
Contact: Susan E. King (susan.king@...)
Glen Straus (gstrauss@...)

Due to the tremendous growth JewishGen is experiencing and recognizing the
need to focus on Business and Corporate Development, it is with great
pleasure that JewishGen can announce today the appointment of Mr. Glen
Strauss as our Director of Business and Corporate Development. This newly
formed position will report directly to the President of
JewishGen with input >from the Development Sub-Committee of JewishGen's
Executive Committee.

Glen's role will be to strengthen and build JewishGen's business
relationships within the Jewish genealogical community and to develop
ongoing relationships within the world's corporate community.

Born in Illinois in 1954, Glen graduated >from the University of Illinois
with a B.S. degree in music education in 1976. He graduated with a J.D.
degree >from the University of Southern California Law Center, and has been
admitted to practice law in the State of California. He joined Smith Barney
as a financial consultant in 1983, and is now a Senior Vice President of
Investments/Financial Consultant and a Director of the
Consulting Group at Smith Barney. He has served on the Directors Council
at Smith Barney for nearly fifteen years, and has been a member of the
Directors Advisory Group.

As co-chairman of the Yitzhak Rabin Peace Memorial Fund, he recently
succeeded in having a large bronze bust of the late Prime Minister
installed at the entrance to the municipality building in Tel Aviv.

For the last two years, he has been very actively pursuing his
genealogy hobby and, through the help of JewishGen,
located over 3000 descendants of his maternal great-great grandfather. Glen
has organized two family reunions - one in July, 1998 in Chicago attended
by over 260 relatives, and one last October, in Tel Aviv, with over 225
attendees. His family website at http://www.eisenstein.nu houses
over 2000 family photos. Glen has also successfully arranged for the
translation of the Yizkor book >from Drogichin, the shtetl in Belarus from
which both his maternal grandparents emigrated.

Over the next few months, Glen will be contacting the coordinators of all
those groups we currently serve either by email or telephone. He will be
building an overall plan of expanding awareness of JewishGen and our
partners within the corporate world.

We look forward to the opportunity to broaden the awareness of JewishGen in
the worldwide Jewish community and to strengthen the relationships with our
partners and hosted organizations as we strive towards our mission of
preserving our history for future generations.
