Yerachmiel BAUMGARTEN of Poland - Hebron #general

Brandler Institute of Chasidic Thought <bict@...>
 

Dear All:

Has anyone come across a mention of Yerachmiel BAUMGERTEN, originally from
Poland who settled in Hebron apparently in the twenties? He possibly was a
Kotzker chossid. His wife's maiden name was RAISHER.

In addition is there a full list available of the 1929 Hebron Massacre
victims?

Many Thanks in Advance,

Abraham Heschel

My grandmother's nephew, Moishe MILGROM ,had a son, Alexander Milgrom, a
specialist in oriental studies who currently lives in Moscow. Moishe was
born around 1912 so I imagine his son might have been born around 1935.
I would appreciate any help anyone can offer me in finding Alexander. I
really don't know where to begin. Thanks for help or suggestions! Marilyn

Jewish records for Poland, Warszawa, Plock #general

Fred Zimmak <Fred.Zimmak@...>
 

Dear Genners,

First of all, a thank to all of you who helped me with my viewmates for my
Steiner family.

Trough the JRI-poland database I finally found some Zimak. And the LDS has
filmed those records. My problem is that the records are in Polish and
Russian, wich I don't understand and I can't read Russian.

My questions are:

1. Is there someone who has looked in those records? And do you remembering
seeing any Zimak?

2. Would I be able to read names, places and dates? If not, what could I do?

Kind regards

Fred Zimmak

FRIEND family at Church Street and/or Bethnal Green Road, London East End #unitedkingdom

Jocelyn Keene
 

In my family tree I have Morris FRIEND who lived at 6 Bethnal Green
Road, Holywell, Shoreditch, about 1876-1879, as indicated on birth
certificates and Jews Free School records. In Jul 1879 - 1881, he lived
at 6 Church Street, Holywell, Shoreditch, as shown in birth
certificates and the 1881 census. In Nov 1887 he lived at 96 Bethnal
Green Road, Bethnal Green for the birth of my grandmother-in-law, Ethel
Nellie FRIEND, and in 1889 his youngest child, Eleazer Edwin FRIEND,
was born at 96 Church Street, Bethnal Green. This particular family
moved often. But given the coincidences of the street names of these
last four addreses, is it possible that Church Street was the same as
Bethnal Green Road? If that were the case, they would have moved less
than it otherwise seems. Suggestions are welcome.
Thanks,
Jocelyn
