Rabbi Mayer S. ABROMOWITZ-Rabbinical personalities in New England #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

I know the chance is slim but:

My grandfather, Rabbi Chaim Yitzchak ABRAMOWITZ (1895-1964),
son of Meyer ABRAMOWITZ (d. 1917),of Jerusalem, emmigrated
to Hartford , Ct. around 1926/1928.

Is anyone out there who know the genealogy of the
Rabbi Mayer S. ABROMOWITZ, -not the same as the above-who
may know of a connection between the two ABRAMOWITZ's?

Yoni Ben-Ari, Efrat, Israel

MODERATOR NOTE: Have a look at the information on the
Rabbinic genealogy site:

information re: death/burial in Switzerland and Italy #general

Liz Halevy-Berger
 

Hi there everyone,
Hag Sameach!
I wonder if anyone out there could help me with
information about going about finding death and/or
burial dates in Switzerland and Italy - more
specifically, Lugano and Turin. I presume the best
would be if there are websites or e-mail addresses of
the relevant organizations.
I look forward to any help possible,

Seeking HALF Lauterbourg, Bas-Rhine>USA & more #usa

Fred Half <fredhalf@...>
 

I am submitting this name list to the Early American, French, and German SIGs
for reasons that I hope are clear >from the narrative that follows later.

I have been a member of all the SIGs for some time but am just getting around to
posting my list. I have been researching my family sporadically for about 10 years
and consider myself knowledgeable in genealogy search techniques. I have extensive
internet and computer research skills. I can read French and can communicate in
French at a basic level.

Some of my ancestors have have been in the US since the mid 1830s (all four of my
grandparents and three of my eight great grandparents were born in the US),the rest
arrived by the 1870s. Their origins are predominately Bas-Rhine, Bavaria, and
Western Poland (around Wroclaw). I have a lot of anecdotal information and am
starting to collect actual copies of birth, marriage, and death records.

I am interested in determining the actual entry points and ships records for my
ancestors as well as tracing their history back as far as possible.

I believe that the surname HALF existed prior to 1808 and was associated with the
HALFF name in Lauterbourg, Bas-Rhine.

Also the SIDENBERG name was SEIDENBERG in Wroclaw (Breslau) and changed upon
arrival to the United States.

I have much data and I am trying to trace the movements of the families both to the
United States and within the US.

My paternal grandparents were Morris HALF b 28 June 1872 Athens, Ohio and Carolyn
ISRAEL b 16 March 1874 Waterloo, Iowa. Their parents were Isaac HALF b 17 July 1842
Haguenau, Bas-Rhine, Eva SELIG b 15 December 1841 Rothbach, Aaron ISRAEL
b 11 March 1835 Romanswiller, Bas-Rhine, Betty EINSTEIN b 1845 Hagerstown, MD.

My maternal grandparents were Alfred OPPENHEIMER b 28 September 1873 Allegheny, PA
and Edna SIDENBERG b 27 February 1888 Milwaukee, WI. Their parents were Moses
OPPENHEIMER b 25 September 1840 Germany and Julia FRANK b 7 September 1851
Pittsburgh, PA, and Hugo SEIDENBERG b 23 November 1856 Wroclaw (Breslau)
Poland and Mollie RICH b 1 May 1862 Cleveland, OH.

Anyone who has any connections with these families, please contact me privately.

SCHEIER from Berlin #germany

Clara ROBINSOHN. They are originally >from Sucha-Beskidzka and Bielsko-Biala
in Poland. I know that David SCHEIER and his wife lived for many years in
Berlin, Germany (where my uncle, Kurt SCHEIER, was born), and there is a
possibility that other brothers of David SCHEIER also lived in Berlin or
nearby prior or during WWII. In particular, I am seeking information
regarding Max SCHEIER and Samuel SCHEIER, and any other information about
their family members. As far as I know, all siblings of David SCHEIER were

Visit to Warsaw and Pultusk,Poland #general

Alice Josephs
 

In addition to Jodie Binstock's previous posting on tips
for a visit to Poland and Lithuania, I also have the
same sort of query.

A cousin is going on a business trip to Warsaw mid
May and wishes to visit the ancestral shtetl of Pultusk
has asked for any tips,genealogically-speaking.

1) What Jewish genealogical resources are there in Warsaw?
What are the procedures for getting in touch with and
getting the maximum possible (in a limited time!) >from the
Jewish Historical Institute, for example?

2) Can anyone who has visited the Polish State Archives
explain what are the procedures for seeing records.
Can one contact them in advance so that they have
records available? Is it better to write or phone?

3) Is there anybody they can recommend as a good guide to the
genealogical resources and Jewish sites in Pultusk
(which is not far >from Warsaw)?

4) I have some information on Pultusk >from listers on
the Pultusk mailing list at Yahoo! Groups -
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/J-Pultusk/
This includes the fact that apparently some museums
in Pultusk have some Jewish gravestones. However previous
letters sent to these museums have elicited no reply.
Are there any tips anyone can give for trying to get
information on these and any other artifacts they may hold?

In short if anyone can give me any information and tips,
I'd really appreciate it. Please contact me privately unless
your mailing is of genealogical interest for the
Jewishgen mailing list.

ABROMOWITZ in New England #rabbinic

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

I know the chance is slim but:

My grandfather, Rabbi Chaim Yitzchak ABRAMOWITZ (1895-1964), son of
Meyer ABRAMOWITZ (d. 1917) of Jerusalem, emmigrated to Hartford, Ct.
around 1926/1928.

Is anyone out there who knows the genealogy of Rabbi Mayer S.
ABROMOWITZ, -not the same as the above- who may know of a connection
between the two ABRAMOWITZs?
