Happy New Year to All!

I have not asked in a while, so I will put forth the question again. Does
anybody have an interest in the Langsam family or the offspring of R' Hersh
Mylech Spira, aka The Bnei Yissochur (son of Pesach Langsam)?

Please contact me with any interest you might have. I maintain a website at
www.langsam.com

Your feedback is welcome.

Re: Amsterdam and Vilna Gaon #belarus

Sylvia Schildt <creativa@...>
 

I read recently that that the Vilna Gaon (1720-1797) got to Holland in his
vain attempt to make Aliya to Eretz Yisrael. When he returned to Vilna he
may have brought a number of Jewish artisans with him >from Amsterdam, one
of the main Hebrew printing centres in Europe and the skill was taken from
there to Vilna.
Other artisans may have followed.

I am trying to fill in a gap about my BASSON family, probably originally
Portuguese Sephardim (who came to Amsterdam after the Portuguese Expulsion,
in the 1520's) and who we can place for sure in Vilna by the 1850's. If
Bassons were among these artisans, or in subsequent waves of immigrations
from Holland to Vilna that would mean they were established in Vilna for
about 100 years, give or take.

Does anyone have information about lists or other materials documenting
immigration >from Holland to Lithuania ?

This is sent out although it does not appear to have any
specific relation to Belarus, however, it is interesting
and might eventually have bearing on Belarus research.

finding jewish heritage: ISRAELSON #general

Linda Lundgren-Dallman <lundgrendallman@...>
 

Hello,

I am trying to find out if there is Jewish heritage on my side of the
family. Our family name when my great-grandfather came to the United
States >from Sweden was "Israelson". The name was changed to Lundgren
because it "didn't sound American enough". I can trace the name "Israel"
back three generations when the family was still in Sweden, and would like
to know if this could indicate a Jewish family member. Could anyone help
me in my search?

Thank you,

Linda Lundgren-Dallmann

Salo also had a son. They lived or live in Argentina, I think in Buenos Aries.
