How to find photo/painting of a particular rabbi? #galicia

Ted Gostin
 

I am trying to locate either a photograph or a painting/drawing of Rabbi
Simon SCHREIBER of Krakow, Poland. He was born in 1821 in
Bratislava, Slovkakia, and died in 1883 in Krakow. He served as rabbi
in Krakow >from 1860 to his death, and >from 1842 to 1860 of
Mattersdorf, Austria.

We think that he might have been the brother of a family member. We
have a photograph of the family member's brother, and want to
compare it to known images of Rabbi Simon SCHREIBER to see if
they seem to be a match.

Any ideas of where I could look for images of this particular rabbi?

Records #latvia

Yes Arlene you are right - the Latvian Archives did suggest that I
contact the Lithuanian archives! They told me that they had no records
on MOSESSTAM, but if they found some would get back to me. That was
over a year ago. Perhaps I will get back to them again. I have no
personal records to say where he was born, a brother of mine told
me he was born in Courland, that info came >from my father.

Perhaps the entries you found on MOSESSTAM were related to my Gf.

Thank you for your reply.
Best Wishes.

NEUSTADTER-RABINOWITZ/NAYVEDEL #rabbinic

Shoshana L. Boublil
 

I'm trying to work out the family of Rabbi [Moshe] Yehoshua
NEUSTADTER RABINOWITZ/NAYVEDEL.

I know >from family sources, that he was the father of Rav Binyamin
Binush NAYVEDEL; that he married the daughter of Rav Zemel [the
brother of Rav Chaim of Vollozhin].

from members of this list I received the information that Rabbi
Yehoshua's father's name was Binush and that Rabbi Yehoshua had
4 children:

Baruch, Binyamin Binush (died 1894), Shlomo Zalman, Shalom 1790.

So that the tree becomes:

-- Binush
-------Yehoshua
-------------Baruch
-------------Binyamin Binush
-------------Shlomo Zalman
-------------Shalom

At the Jewishfamilyhistory.org site, I looked through the website
for Zemaiciu Naumiestis b/c of information >from a family source
(introduction to a book by Rav Chaim Fishel Epstein) and found the
following information:

1. Sholem
1.1 Benjamin b. 1750 d. 1813
m. Fruma b. 1751
1.1.1 Ovsey [this is the foreign name for Yehoshua]
b. 1781
m. Sora b. 1784 [matches the possibility that her
father was Rav Zemel b. 1743-1787]
1.1.1.1 Zelman b. 1802
1.1.1.2 Sholom b. 1811
1.1.1.3 Pesa b. 1813 [on the revision list she is
listed as 38 years old in 1816, but that's
an obvious mistake]
1.1.2 Borukh b. 1780
m. Tema b. 1781
1.1.2.1 Meyer b. 1807
1.1.2.2 Chana b. 1814

As you can see, the names and time period match. Could this indeed
be the same family? If so, why is it documented in other places as
NEUSTADTER RABINOWITZ (including the Halperin Encyclopedia) but in
the Revision list it is listed as NAYVEDEL (which is the name that
some of the descendants are known under)?

Przemysl (possibly also in Rudnik) and died in 1894. Reb Elimelech
had a son named Yaakov but I don't know if that is the source for
