WEINER -- New Jersey #belarus

laguna@...
 

Dear Genners,

I'm seeking descendants of Harry J. WEINER -- the family lived and/or
worked in the Elizabeth/Linden/Roselle area of New Jersey >from
approximately 1930. Harry J. had offices in Elizabeth and lived in Linden.

Harry J. was a lawyer, married to Mildred. Their children were Lester ,
Edith (aka Elsie?) and Edward. Lester also became a lawyer. Edward
married Polly. Elsie/Edith married Sidney MARGOLIN and moved to Boston
about 1945.

If, as I suspect, we are related, then this family emigrated >from
Belarus (probably Bobruisk).

Please respond privately.

Harry,

I've reviewed Ellis Island records for the four members of Horowitz family

NY.

Ester, 25 (elder sister)
Sara, 16
Ida, 9
Aron, 8

It appears that the handwritten town name clearly identifies town as Jasien,
Austria.

Typed summary that identifies town as "Jasicn" is incorrect (misspelled).
Incorrect is also Aron data: he is identified as female 9, data mixed up
with his sister Ida.

Jasien was unfortunatelly fairly popular placename through Poland and in
Galicia which may require >from some extra efforts to pinpoint the location.


Main Galician's Jasien used to be:

(1) Jasien in Brzesko region, used to be Krakow Province (currently Poland)
(2) Jasien in Lisko (Lesko) region, used to be Lwow Province (currently
Poland)
(3) Jasien in Kalusz region, Stanislawow Province (now in Ivano-Frankivsk,
Ukraine)


Personally, I believe that Jasien, Lisko (renamed to Lesko) region is the
correct location. Jasien Jewish records were kept in Stary Sambor. There is
another clue: Aunt Ester Horowitz remain in Jasien when kids arrived in NYC.

Genealogical GOLD!!!! #romania

Gold - genealogical gold. !!

After 30 years of on-again, off-again research, and one postponed trip to
Romania, I finally made it on 3/29. I was prepared. I had faxed a request to
the archives, I had numerous addresses of places where my grandparents and great
grandparents had lived. I even had a recent discovery of a divorce and a
name change that made absolutely no sense to any surviving members of the
family.
My great grandfather, Israel BERMAN, was born in Botosani in 1844, according
to his wedding certificate. His father was alive when he married my great
grandmother and >from that we determined that Israel was the first to use the
BERMAN last name.

I had asked my guide to make arrangements to meet with the Mayor of Ramnicu
Sarat. This was the 100th anniversary year of my grandparents departure from
RS for Winnipeg, Canada. The mayor was very gracious and sent a car to meet
us at the outskirts of the town, and escorted us to the Town Hall. We were
received as honored guests and were served juice, coffee, tea and sweet rolls

The Mayor told us that there were no Jews in town, the last one that he was
aware of, having died 40 or more years ago. There had been two synagogues but
one had already collapsed. There were two Jewish cemeteries. We also discussed
the economics of the town. The major employer was a textile manufacturing
plant. This was most interesting because my great grandfather had been in the
textile business through 1908, according to the family history. He died in
1909. One side of our family, the Schein family, continued in the textile
business through the end of WW2 when they moved to France. So it may have been
that my family started the business that remains the mainstay of Rimnicul Sarat
today.

The Mayor had one of his staff drive us around the town (now 45,000) and
showed me the areas where my family had lived. No houses remained - some of
them having been replaced by those "beautiful" Communist era apartment buildings.
We drove by one cemetery - the old cemetery - which dated apparently from
the 1700's. Most of the stones had been stolen over the years. Currently, there
are about 20 head stones in the cemetery and the balance of the land is
being used for growing crops. Apparently the Jewish Community of Romania
(JCR)has an arrangement with the farmer to care for the remaining stones. We then
drove by the Synagogue but could not find the caretaker so our entry was delayed
by a day

The next day, along with the representative of the JCR, based in Focsani, we
visited the synagogue. The building itself is disintegrating. Windows missing
or broken, the brick turning to powder in some areas, parts of the ceiling
have fallen. I asked about the torahs and was told they had been sent to
Israel many years ago. Looking around the ante room, there were some pews
and a cabinet with prayer books in various stages of decay. There were a few old
oil lamps and some record books of donations >from the early 1900's.

I then entered the sanctuary and walked towards the bimah. I took about 5
steps and stopped - in shock.....

Additions to the Conference program #lithuania

We have some wonderful news about additions to the Conference program:

Warren Blatt, JewishGen's Vice President and Editor-in-Chief will
represent Jewishgen at the Conference in Jerusalem. Warren's talk is
entitled "JewishGen -- Past, Present and Future" and will focus on all
aspects of Jewishgen databases. His sessions will take one step-by-step
through the process of using JewishGen's internet databases: including
both how to search the databases, and how to add one's own data. We feel
his talk is so important that we have scheduled it for a plenary session
on Tuesday, after the Break-the-Fast dinner at 2100, as well as on Friday
morning, to ensure that Israelis will be able to be present and to learn
from it.
Yad Vashem has done it again! Miriam Aviezer, an expert on Yugoslavian
Jewry, will be present at Yad Vashem, in the reading room of the library,
on Wednesday between 10:00 and 14:00 to help you with your research
questions. Those of you with Yugoslavian roots, take note!!

Rose Lerer Cohen, co-author of the multi-volume study on the fate of
Lithuanian Jewry, is also generously donating her time to help those of
you with Litvak roots.. You can consult with Rose in the reading room at
Yad Vashem on Tuesday, July 6, between 10:00 and noon.

Those with Hungarian roots will have the good fortune of being helped by
the expert on Hungarian Jewry, Dr. Gavriel Bar Shaked, who will be at Yad
Vashem >from Sunday through Thursday, between 10:00 and 14:00.

In addition to these and other experts and a crew of volunteers who will
be ready to help you at Yad Vashem, we will have representatives >from Yad
Vashem present at the Conference venue to point you in the right direction
before you ever leave the hotel! Be sure that you bring with you all known
details of family members that you believe were murdered in the Shoah.
You will be able to fill out pages of testimony in their memory, which Yad
Vashem representatives will have with them to give you at the conference.
Don't let your relatives remain among the nameless, a number among the
millions killed. Help rekindle their memory by filling out and handing in
the Pages of Testimony so that future generations can know and honour them
as well!

During the evening Event at Yad Vashem on Monday afternoon and evening,
one of the very poignant moments will be when each person goes to the
beautiful Valley of the Lost Communities to locate the stone bearing the
mention of the communities >from which his family came and whose Jewish
population was decimated in World War II. There too, you will have the
opportunity to honour your murdered family members and their community by
remembering them in your own special way in the Valley of the Lost
Communities.

And then, as they would have wanted, we will celebrate life in the evening
program at Yad Vashem: Am Yisrael Chai! Make sure you bring a sweater and
warm clothing. Nights are cool in Jerusalem, even in summer.

We have some wonderful news about additions to the Conference program:

Warren Blatt, JewishGen's Vice President and Editor-in-Chief will
represent Jewishgen at the Conference in Jerusalem. Warren's talk is
entitled "JewishGen -- Past, Present and Future" and will focus on all
aspects of Jewishgen databases. His sessions will take one step-by-step
through the process of using JewishGen's internet databases: including
both how to search the databases, and how to add one's own data. We feel
his talk is so important that we have scheduled it for a plenary session
on Tuesday, after the Break-the-Fast dinner at 2100, as well as on Friday
morning, to ensure that Israelis will be able to be present and to learn
from it.
Yad Vashem has done it again! Miriam Aviezer, an expert on Yugoslavian
Jewry, will be present at Yad Vashem, in the reading room of the library,
on Wednesday between 10:00 and 14:00 to help you with your research
questions. Those of you with Yugoslavian roots, take note!!

Rose Lerer Cohen, co-author of the multi-volume study on the fate of
Lithuanian Jewry, is also generously donating her time to help those of
you with Litvak roots.. You can consult with Rose in the reading room at
Yad Vashem on Tuesday, July 6, between 10:00 and noon.

Those with Hungarian roots will have the good fortune of being helped by
the expert on Hungarian Jewry, Dr. Gavriel Bar Shaked, who will be at Yad
Vashem >from Sunday through Thursday, between 10:00 and 14:00.

In addition to these and other experts and a crew of volunteers who will
be ready to help you at Yad Vashem, we will have representatives >from Yad
Vashem present at the Conference venue to point you in the right direction
before you ever leave the hotel! Be sure that you bring with you all known
details of family members that you believe were murdered in the Shoah.
You will be able to fill out pages of testimony in their memory, which Yad
Vashem representatives will have with them to give you at the conference.
Don't let your relatives remain among the nameless, a number among the
millions killed. Help rekindle their memory by filling out and handing in
the Pages of Testimony so that future generations can know and honour them
as well!

During the evening Event at Yad Vashem on Monday afternoon and evening,
one of the very poignant moments will be when each person goes to the
beautiful Valley of the Lost Communities to locate the stone bearing the
mention of the communities >from which his family came and whose Jewish
population was decimated in World War II. There too, you will have the
opportunity to honour your murdered family members and their community by
remembering them in your own special way in the Valley of the Lost
Communities.

And then, as they would have wanted, we will celebrate life in the evening
program at Yad Vashem: Am Yisrael Chai! Make sure you bring a sweater and
warm clothing. Nights are cool in Jerusalem, even in summer.
