I have 2 questions:

on their migration?

BRILL and SCHACHTER, Falticeni > Chicago, IL #romania

Rebecca Fenning <macguffin317@...>
 

Hi all,

I am currently researching my uncle’s BRILL and SCHACHTER lines >from in or
near FALTICENI.

Samuel BRILL was born ca 1857-67 in or near Falticeni to Morris BRILL.
Around 1883, he married Mollie SCHACHTER, daughter of Israel, born ca
1868-1870, also in or near Falticeni.

They had 9 children, the oldest 3 born in Romania, and the others born in
Chicago, Illinois:

Aaron, b. ca 1888, d. 1926, Chicago
Matilda, b. ca 1888-1890, m. Morris GROUPE
Etta, b. ca 1891, m. Robert ROSENTHAL, d. 1954, Chicago
Max, b. ca 1896, d. 1941, Chicago; 1st asst. chief deputy bailiff of the
Municipal court of Chicago
Dorothy, b. 1899, m. George WEINER
Celia, b. 1902, m. Albert HORWITCH, d. 1980s, Phoenix, Arizona
Edith, b. 1904, m. Barry BLUM
Edward, b. 1905, d. 1978, Phoenix, Arizona
Sol, b. 1915

Samuel and his family immigrated to Chicago, Illinois in about 1895, where
he later founded the first kosher restaurant in the city and was a founding
member of the First Romanian Congregation (according to his obituary). Sam
died in 1932 in Chicago and Mollie died in 1938.

A brother or other relative of Samuel’s, a Leo (or Chaim) BRILL, born 1874
in Romania, immigrated to the US in 1900.

Mollie’s brother Abraham SCHACHTER, born 1881 in Romania, immigrated to the
us in 1907, and died in Los Angeles in 1951.

Thank you,

Hi,
I posted four pages of a letter on ViewMate

ids VM5735-VM5738.

The letter was in a collection of my grandparents papers,
my grandparents were Herschel and Sima LEWAK, from
Drohiczyn in Belarus. It is written in Hebrew script, and
is either in Hebrew or Yiddish.

If someone could tell me who wrote the letter, to whom
it was addressed, and what it is about I'd appreciate it.

Also, I have about 100 pages of letters and other documents
written in Hebrew or Yiddish and Russian, I'd like to get
full translations for them all. What's the best way (and most
cost-effective) to translate them?

JGS Broward County Florida Meeting
Wednesday, March 30 at 7:00 PM
Soref Jewish Community Center
6501 West Sunrise Boulevard
Plantation, Florida

It's "Show and Tell" time at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical
Society of Broward County. Members of the society will share their knowledge and
experience to enhance the research potential of all the members. There will
be a chance to ask questions, too.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 30, a time for pre-meeting
questions and the "Show and Tell" Panel will begin at 7:30 p.m.

This "home-grown" program will give members an opportunity to pass along the
information they've gathered about "how to do it."

David Corito, will share his experience on "Research In Greece." Bob
Koltnow, past president, will tell about "Research in Philadelphia." Each locale
offers unique opportunities and unique problems. Brenda Feuer, membership chair,
will explain "Relationships." Brenda knows the difference between a first
cousin, a first cousin once removed, and a second cousin. It sometimes gets
complicated and once in a while you end up "being your own grandpaw," but you
need to know how the pieces of puzzle fit. If time allows, Bob Koltnow will show
a video of his visit to Yad Vashem last summer during the IAJGS Conference.

Join the society and come to the meeting to learn--about your family's
relationship and about what you may experience when you take your research that
next step, either "back home" where you grew up or overseas where your ancestors
grew up.

HORWITCH and FEIWEL(MAN), Laukuva area>Chicago, IL #lithuania

Rebecca Fenning <macguffin317@...>
 

Hi all,

I am doing research for my uncle on his HORWITCH and FEIWEL/FEIWELMAN lines
from in or near Laukuva (or Leckava – the place name I was given was
Lucova).

Mordecai/Max HORWITCH (In some records, the last name is HORWITZ or HURWITZ)
was born c1868 in Laukuva, or in “Chwedau” (per natualization records) and
was married to Rose FEIWEL or FEIWELMAN, born c1870s also in the Laukuva
area.

They had five children, all born in Lithuania:

* Albert HORWITCH, b. 5 Jul 1896, m. Celia BRILL, d. 1981, Phoenix, AZ
* Joseph HORWITCH, b. c1898-1900, m. Bernice, d. 1988, Chicago
* Irving HORWITCH, b. c1898-1901, m. Ruth GOLDFINE, d. 1980, Florida
* Bea HORWITCH, b. c1903, m. Kady KADISON
* Louis, b. 1905, m. Adeline, d. 1978, Chicago

Max immigrated to Chicago, Illinois in 1905, traveling to the US via Quebec,
and his family followed in about 1908. In about 1947, Max made aliyah to
Israel where he died in 1949. Rose died in Chicago in 1950.
