ViewMate: Do you Recognize? (Dunayevtsy/Dinovitz, Ukraine) #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

I have posted on View Mate a picture taken of the Landsman >from Dunayevtsy,
Ukraine. The Jews referred to their home town as Dinovitz. Dinovitz is located
just to the north-east of Kamenitz Podolsk in the Ukraine.

This picture was taken in the early 1950's in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. We have
been able to identify some of the people but would love to see if anyone
recognizes someone else.

The individuals who are known are marked as:

#`16-Morris ROZENZWOG--born there
#15 Bessie Rozenswog--his wife
#19 Hirsch WEINTRAUB--born there
#28 Nettie Moss COHEN--born there
#29 Hyman SCHECHTER--born there
#33 Rose KIPPNOR Schechter ANBINDER--born there
#31 David Anbinder--her husband
#38--Mary Kushner ROMBRO--born there

The View Mate number is VM 6935 or you can access it directly by going to
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6935

If anyone would like to see a larger picture, I can send it to you directly.
Please reply directly to me and not to the group.

2006 Group Trip to Lithuania & Nearby Areas #general

Howard Margol
 

I am organizing another group trip to Lithuania, June 13 - 22, 2006. This will be
the 13th group trip I have organized and led to Lithuania. The June, 2005 group
trip was to be the last one I was going to organize. I had 25 in the group and,
it was so successful, the word spread. A number of individuals have asked me to
organize another group trip for 2006. I never say never but frankly, I cannot
promise to do more trips in the future. If you have any thoughts about going to
Lithuania, Latvia, or Belarus now is the time to sign up.

Included - visits to the various Archives, synagogues, ghettos, holocaust sites,
meetings with Jewish leaders, sight-seeing, guide/interpreters, and two days to
visit and spend time in your shtetl, or shtetlach of interest. All meals are
included (except for one dinner and two lunches), the finest hotels (new &
modern), modern bus with onboard toilet, and much more. I am very familiar with
the Archives, the archivists, Lithuania and the main places of Jewish interest.

I do not organize these group trips as a profit-making endeavor. Everything is
done at cost but in a deluxe manner. My main object is to encourage Jews to go
back to their roots, to encourage them to research their ancestors and to enable
them to see the rebirth of Judaism taking place in Lithuania.

Important: This trip is sponsored by the American Fund For Lithuanian-Latvian
Jews, Inc. (a 501(c)(3) non-profit). It is not sponsored or endorsed by Jewishgen
or Shtetlshleppers. My previous trip participants can be contacted if references
are desired.

For details and a full itinerary of the trip, contact Howard Margol, E-mail
homargol@aol.com Very important: Do not ask about this trip through a message
to the Digest. Contact me directly.

Followup on attempt to reach BLUMENBERG Relative #general

Leslie Weinberg <artsoul@...>
 

Some of you may remember the contact I made on "BLUMENBERG" who married into my
EISEN family. We discovered that my grandfather's sister married his
grandmother's brother. I was so excited especially since I had information on
survivors that he did not have, and he apparently, or his brother( who had
traveled to Tyczyn, Poland in the 80s and brought him numerous records) might have
the key to other family which I did not know about. He then stopped responding,
and despite three follow-up emails, I never heard another word. Many of you
suggested continuing to try, that there could have been numerous reasons for his
lack of response, such as illness, computer problems, and worst of all, possibly
even a death, so a couple of weeks ago I sent an email to his brother (to whom he
had been sending copies of his emails to me) stating who I was, what had
transpired in the emails between his brother and me, and that I hoped everyone was
well. I never received an answer! I want all of you who spurred me on that I
thank you, that I did follow through, and still have no response.

Seeking: Abraham LACHOWITSKY #general

I am seeking information about my great-grandfather, Abraham LACHOWITZSKY (b.
approx 1875). He also used the surname LASKOWITZ. He deserted my
great-grandmother Leah KHMARNA LACHOWITSKY in 1903. They were living in New York
City. In the 1930s Abraham was living with a cousin in Seattle, Washington. He
was orginally >from Slutsk, Belarus.

Ring any bells? Thanks.

Seeking: FRIENDLICH or Related Name #general

Arnold Samlan
 

I recently discovered my great-great-grandfather's name: Joseph/Yosef FRIENDLICH
(or close spelling). While this is all the information that I have as of the
moment, his daughter, Rosie (Freindlich) SAMLAN came to Montreal, most likely in
the 1890's. She was widowed at a young age, and died herself in 1915, leaving an
only son, my grandfather.

The only information I have >from my family is that its roots are ">from Romania,"
which, in that time period, could be Romania proper or any of a few other nearby
countries.

Anyone with the last name of Freindlich (or a closely related name) who believes
that they might have a family connection, or might have other information, please
contact me.

My grandfather Joseph BALLON's manifest, >from December 1904 indicates he was
coming to a cousin, R. GREENBURG (or GREENBERG) at 114 Varet Street in Brooklyn,
Ny.

His naturalization papers show he was born in Orgerve, Russia. His wife, Rachel
Lena BASS was born in Kalome, Russia.

I'm looking for descendents of that Greenburg family.

I realize this is a needle in a haystack, but it is all the information I have.

Seeking: SAVIN #general

LJTRS@...
 

Hello,

I am having a problem in finding my husband's great grandfather's information.
His name was Jacob SAVIN and I found he immigrated to the US in 1891 under the
name Yankel SAWIN. He married Sarah RITCH who was >from Drisa, Vitebsk, Russia in
1897 in the US. They moved to Montville, Connecticut and had four children
between 1898 and 1909. I found them on the 1900 and 1910 censuses. Then by 1912,
Jacob abandons the family never to be seen again. No one knows where he went or
what happened to him. There were rumors he died between 1912 and 1918 and in
fact Sarah states she is a widow on the 1920 census, although that could have
been her wishful thinking. Does anybody know how I can find anything on him? I
have hit a wall.

An interesting note is that on the 1900 census, Jacob has a baby named Bessie but
he also has a niece named Bessie Savin who was 18 years old at the time. No one
in the family knows who she was and she never appears on any other censuses. I
figure that if I can find her immigration information (it said she immigrated in
1894) then I might be able to find some of his family that immigrated as well.
But I have not been able to find her at all. I believe her Hebrew name would
have been Peshe.

This family is a mystery.
Thanks for your attention and help.
