Sugihara Database-David Apotheker-Bardejov #general

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners,

Looked yesterday on Jewishgen into the Sugihara Database(The Japanese
Consul in Lithuania who saved Jews) and found on it my late father in law
David Apotheker(1908-1995). He was born in Bardejov,Slovakia but lived
mainly in Poland and Hungary where he had brothes.We knew that he spent
the war in Kobe,Kyoto and Shanghai but never were aware that he was part of
the Sugihara saga.

Would appreciate anyone who had relatives on this strange chapter of our
history to contact me.

Bamberg and Upper Franconia family trees (incl. BRUELL & BRILIN family) #general

MBernet@...
 

from 1933 to 1939, Max Katten, district Rabbi of Bamberg, worked on a
genealogy of the Jews of Bamberg and the immediate vicinity. The work was
interrupted when Rabbi Katten fled to England after Kristallnacht. His
draft is now in the possession of the Central Archives of the History of
the Jewish People in Jerusalem at

archives@...

One of the huge volumes, containing the various graphic trees (well over
300), is crumbling, and is no longer available for view by the general
public. Together with my son, Ilan, I digitally copied this volume for
the Central Archives. The resulting CD-Rom is now available for perusal
at the Archives. The format is particularly useful for researchers; there
are various erasures etc. on the pages that can be brought to greater
clarity by manipulating color balance and contrast in the computer.
(The other volumes are organized as lists based on family names and on
geographic locations; I have not digitalized these)

Among the trees are those of various well-known rabbinic families, among
them of the Brilln/Bruell families. .

Hadassah Assouline, Director of the Archives wrote to me "By all means,
refer anyone inquiring about particular trees to us." I' not sure how
much time the Archives can devote to specific questions; they are
notoriously understaffed and overworked.

By contract, I am not allowed to make the work available to anyone else.
It is possible that the Archives may sell copies of the disk, or of
individual files (trees); you will have to approach Ms Assouline on that,
yourself.

The specific family trees are filed, in alphabetical order. If someone is
interested, I will be glad to tell them whether a particular surname is
among those on the disk. Of course, there are many other names on each
tree including spouses and inlaws; I cannot check these out.

It would be great if, at some point, we could work with all of Katten's
"notebooks" and put them in a database as part of a database of all
Franconian Jews.

Idel Waxman Descendents #general

David Simon Bendory <davidNOSPAM@...>
 

I have the birth certificate of my great-grandmother's brother Ioil
VACSMAN. He was born February 24, 1878 in Botosani, Romania, son of Moise
VACSMAN and Feige SINGER.

According to family legend, my GGM had a brother named "Idel" who came too
America with the rest of the family, but found that "Americans work too
hard" so he went back to Romania. Family elders recall my GGM's generation
corresponding with him into the early 1940s when "the letters stopped." No
one knows what became of him.

Well, yesterday I found the will of another sibling of that generation,
Rebecca MENCHER. Rebecca died childless in 1954 and her will left her
estate to a variety of nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews,
including:

"Zisla WAXMAN, son of my brother Idel WAXMAN, and 2 other children whose
names and whereabouts are unknown."

So I am hunting for a new branch. Descendents of Idel WAXMAN and Zisla
WAXMAN, where are you?

(Yes, I've looked in the usual places -- SSDI, FTJP, etc.)

Re: Bolshoi Topmak ("Re: Zabrodsky or Sabrodsky") #general

NFatouros@...
 

On July 29, 03, Leonard Brody (lbody@...) wrote that he was
"desperately" to find people interested in the name Zabrodsky or abrodsky,
but also "anyone who knows about the town in the Ukraine Bolshoi
Tokmak."

I can't help Mr. Brody much with his ZABRODSKY surname (see Freedman URL
below), but I found bits of information about Boshloi Tokmak by using the
"google" search engine, Jewishgen's "search this website" utility and by
looking up Tokmak in Chester G.Cohen's Shtetl Finder Gazetteer and in
some of my other references.

Tomak or Bolshoi Tokmak (meaning "big" Tokmak) is northeast of Odessa and
north of Melitopol. Its map coordinates are 47'14/35'44. (Freedman, see
URL below, gives slightly different coordinates.)

Where We Once Walked says that Tokmak had a pre-WWII Jewish population of
1,898, and that it is 146 kilometers south southeast of Dnepropetrovsk.

Chester G.Cohen notes the names of Tokmak inhabitants who donated aid to
fire victims in Grodno, and who wrote a letter published in the newspaper
Hamelitz. Unfortunately Cohen does not list the name Zabrodsky or
Sabrodsky among these men. (I daresay Zabrodsky, like Mr. Brody's own
surname, refers to the town of Brody.)

Jewishgen's Cemetery Project offers three separate descriptions of
Tokmak's cemetery as well as a few of historical remarks about Topmak
which includes reference to its largely Chassidic Jewish population. This
website at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/e-europe/ukra-t.html

also says that the earliest known Jewish community of Tokmak is thought
have settled there in 1890.

Jewishgenner Chaim Freedman lists Tokmak as an agricultural settlement. See:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Colonies_of_Ukraine/russian_sources.htm

and

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Colonies_of_Ukraine/tokmak.htm

At Freedman's Topmak site at the URL just above, Freedman mentions the
Zabrodsky/Brody surname as appearing in the 1858 Revision lists.

The "google" search engine picked up a message >from a Eugenia Fochi who
was born in Bolshoi Tokmak and wants to converse with someone in English
who lives in the Bolshoi Tokmak area. See:

http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec/message/an/localities.eeurope.ukraine.zap
orizhska/17

The only references for "Tokmak" I found in my old Columbia-Lippincott
Gazetteer is for a place in the north Frunze Oblast in Kyrgystan. There is
also a Tokmak in Turkey.

Re: US Census Dates #general

Nick Landau <N.Landau@...>
 

As in the UK, the Census Day is the day about which the information
presumably should have been given.

Clearly the enumeration is done on or after Census Day. The date on which
the form is filled in is not relevant, in the sense that the date for which
the information is being asked is the Census Day. Of course, the
information might be given for another day in which case it is inaccurate.

Inaccuracies that I have heard of include a baby being left off the form as
they are not thought of as a "person".

No doubt, in the US as in the UK, these days the form is left with the head
of household before the Census Day. The head of household is asked to fill
in the returns about all persons who were resident in the household on
Census night.

In the UK, I believe that there is additional information now for people
who are normally resident on Census night but who are away.

I have Census forms for my family which were obviously filled in in
beautiful copperplate by the Census enumerator.

It is clear that one hundred years ago, the forms were filled in by the
enumerator at a time when literacy and the ability to deal with forms was
much less.

Also the information collected in the UK Census 100 years ago was much less
(>from memory - name, age, gender, relationship to head of household,
occupation, place of birth).

There was a question on the date that US Censuses were taken. There are
actually two dates: the Census Day and the day that the enumeration of
the individual/family was done. The Census has a set Census date each
time it is taken. Individuals alive on that date in the count area, even
if deceased at the time of the enumeration, were to be counted. Those not
yet born or not present (e.g. in transit) on the Census date but present at
the time of the enumeration were to be ignored. Sometimes these
instructions to the enumerators were not followed. Enumerators were given
up to 18 months to complete the 1840 Census, but since 1880 about a month
is allotted to the actual enumeration. A 1998 article by William
Dollarhide lists the following Census Days: 1790 on 2 August; 1800 on 4
August; 1810 on 6 August; 1820 on 7 August; 1830 through 1900 on 1 June,
1910 on 15 April; 1920 on 1 January; 1930 on 1 April (for most of the US

Eldridge Street is in Manhattan. Many immigrants lived in Manhattan

years later, (and my mother in law thinks that they always lived in
Brooklyn), but the certificate does not say. It reflects the residence
as 71 Eldrige St. There is a difficult to read reference to what might
be the address of the Congregation which looks like it says "78 Bavard St."

Can anyone determine what Congregation this refers to and whether any
Congregation records may exist?

Dear Jeffrey M. Dreifuss,
I am slowly working on a metropolitan NYC area Synagogue
Database. I tried searching for "Balhausker" or "Ballausker" but nothing
came up, neither in Brooklyn not Manhattan. When I tried looking for "Bal"
at the start of a shul name, this is what then came up:

Rodfei Zedek Anshei Balshovtza
49 Sheriff Street Manhattan
New York Synagogues of New York City ~ History of a Jewish Community 80
Former Synagogue Location

Agudas Balebatim
691 Lafayette Avenue
Brooklyn Kings
Synagogues of New York City ~ History of a Jewish Community
143
Former Synagogue Location

Eldridge Street is in Manhattan. Many immigrants lived in Manhattan
before they moved on elsewhere in the NYC area.

In a list of 1939 WPA Defunct Manhattan Synagogues, for which I do not yet
have addresses, I saw:
Beth Haknesseth Anshe Balta Benevolent Soc.
Chevra Anshe Balaver
Chevra Bnai Benjamin Moses Anshe Balachov

In a list of 1939 WPA still extant Manhattan Synagogues, for which I do
not have addresses, I saw:
1912 Baligrader Chevra Agudath Chaverim Society Union of Friends of
Belgrade

In the extant 1939 Brooklyn synagogues the closest I saw was:
1922 Congregation Anshei Borisover Men of Borisov 422 Thatford
Avenue Brooklyn Organized as Congregation Anse Borisow of Brownsville.
Sutter & Thatford to 1926, moved here 1926

I wish you mush success with your shul search.
Up, Roots!

I have obtained my wife's ggrandparents 1891 New York marriage license.
It doesn't reflect the place of the wedding, but indicates that the
person performing the ceremony was an Issac Cohn Reader, (or perhaps it
means to say that Issac Cohn was the "Reader") with an "official Station"
at what looks like Congregation "Anskey Balhausker" or "Ballausker."

I assume this was Brooklyn because I know this is where they resided 20

Well, Augustowo is Augustow, Poland today. At one time Augustow district
was a large administrative area which became Suwalki and Lomza gubernias
according to my sources-and today parts are in Poland, Lithuania, and
Belarus. I am not familiar with Koptziowo, but Shtetlseeker has Kopciowka
and Kopczany in Poland today and Kopciowo (probably the right place) in
Lithuania.

Kopciowo is also called Kapciamiestis in Lithuanian, coordinates 5400 2339,
about 28 miles >from Augustow. It is a big enough city that MapQuest has it
on the map!

1930 NYC city directory look-up #general

C&V <proprius@...>
 

If someone will be using the microfilm of the 1930/1931 New York
City city directory, would you please look up William ZORACH? He was
supposed to be living on W. 10th St in Greenwich Village, but I need to
verify the exact address.
The Cleveland Public Library does not have the microfilm, and
the New York Public Library wants $75 per hour to do a look-up. I am
hoping to get a response >from this group in less time than it would take
to get the microfilm through the FHL.
Thanks,
