SASS or ZWEIG family from Podvolochisk. #ukraine

Guy Gurfinkel <guygurfinkel@...>
 

Hello to all.

Does somebody have information about SASS family or ZWEIG family from
Podvolochisk?

My grandfather, Michael Sass, escaped >from there when the nazis got closer,
and all of his family were probably killed. His father's name is Moshe Zwei=
g,
and his mother's name is Bina Sass. He had a brother, Velvle (Wolf),
and a sister, Perl (Hanna).

As far as I know, Podvolochisk was once a part of Poland,
but today it's a part of Ukraine.

Lipsa Fleishman #lithuania

Jon Seligman
 

Hello all,

I am looking for information concerning my great-grandmother. Unfortunately
we have almost no details.

Her name was Lipsa Fleishman. She was born in 1864, probably in Lithuanian
Russia, and died in Johannesburg in South Africa in 1934. She married Aaron
Lederman of Shadova (Seduva) in Lithuania. They have six children, five
born in Shadova, before their emigration to South Africa around 1905, and
the last in South Africa.

Lipsa’s fathers name was Issac. We do not know in which town she was born.
I have failed to trace a Fleishman family in Shadova till now.

If any of this rings a bell please contact me privately.

Jewish Communities in the 1st Czechoslovak Republic #austria-czech

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Friends,

I'm doing a research on the lifestyle of the Czecho-Slovak Jewish Community
between 1918 and 1938. I'm particularly interested to learn something about
the religious organization of the Czechoslovak Jews during that period.

I would appreciate if you could point me to some pertinent Web links. Could
be in any of the following languages: English, French, German, Spanish,
Hungarian or Slovak.

Please reply off-list.

Many thanks in advance and regards
Tom

Remembering Monica Leonards #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

On the 9 April 2001 Monica Leonards submitted her first posting to
the Austria-Czech SIG. You can read it in the message archives:

Subject: Introduction - Names and Places

Surnames Monica was researching: In the town of Lukavec (Pelhrimov)
and the nearby village of Caslavsko: MAHLER, POPPER, ELTBOGEN
(Eltbogen is an uncommon name, and it apparently is ElTbogen and not
ElLbogen). According to Professor Jiri Rychetsky, an expert on Gustav
Mahler's extended family, Monica's MAHLER descended >from the original
Abraham MAHLER through his son Michal.

In the town of Krinec (near Nymburk) and the nearby villages of Sovenice
and Mcely: KAHN, HAHN, BENDA and POLLAK.

Other names and places: MAHLER (Prague and Kolin); KAHN (Mlada Boleslav);
REICH (Kopaninny); GLUCKAUF (?Liberec); ADLER (Prague) and RESEK (?).

Monica's ancestors began drifting into the larger Bohemian cities during
the last decades of the 19th century, and into Vienna at the beginning of
the 20th century.

There followed 39 other postings written by Monica or relating to her
postings. Monica died last week in Philadelphia at the early age of 49.

I think it would be nice if we all looked at the message archives and
read Monica's postings again in her memory.

The April 30, 2006 edition of The Philadelphia Inquirer had an obituary
notice. Mark Halpern, President, JGS of Greater Philadelphia wrote to me:
Monica was a very bright woman and a great researcher. She was also a
very giving person, giving her time and effort to the JGS of Greater
Philadelphia - always helping members with their research in German-speaking
regions and New York City.

The JGSGP will publish a memorial in their next issue of Chronicles and
would appreciate any praises and comments to be sent to them. They have also
established a Memorial Library Fund in her honour. Monica was always one
of the most frequent users of the Library and they shall buy some books in
her honour.

Ann Rabinowitz Coordinator, Kupiskis SIG wrote: Monica was an active member
whose forte was tracking Kupishokers who came to America and the people they
came to. Her databases, for not only Kupiskis, but the surrounding shtetls
as well, were of immense importance to our membership. - see:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/kupiskis/kupishok.htm

Monica was obviously an all-round genealogist and one who many people will
miss terribly, as she was so enthusiastic and helpful to others.

I have the address of Monica's father if anyone wishes to write to him.
I had planned to meet Monica in August 2005 but she was not well enough
to see me. She had asked me to look for her gt-grandparents FRIED grave
in Vienna but when I was there last in Autumn 2005, I could not find it.
I feel I have let her down. I now regret, more than ever, not meeting Monica.
