Chaim Charutz #southafrica

Beryl. B <balden@...>
 

It is with great sadness and deep sorrow that I heard
of the sudden death of Israeli SA SIG member, Chaim Charutz
while he was holidaying in South Africa, a few weeks ago,
one month short of his 60th birthday.

Chaim and I had an e-mail and telephonic friendship!
The basis of this friendship was the fact that not only
did we live in the same area in Cape Town, attended the
same Habonim Youth Movement and knew the same
people, but both our families attended the same Shul on Shabbat
and Holy days. This connection gave us the feeling of "Der Heim"
as we spent many hours "talking" about a background which we
both shared, reminding us of the way we heard our parents
talking about their "Landsleit" and Lithuania - "Der Heim" for them.

He will be sadly missed by all his Genealogy colleagues in Israel.

I would like to express my sincere sympathy and condolences to
his family both in Israel and South Africa.

Jane Susannah Wilson (22) & Ernest Edward Renn (20)- Jane's father is Reuben Wilson

HANAN DNA STUDY #latinamerica

bob rubin <bob_rubin@...>
 

Dear friends,

I am very excited to report that I have recently started a study of
descendants of HANANs >from the Island of Rhodes. This island passed >from
Ottoman/Turkish to Italian and finally Greek rule. The HANAN family has a
long history on the Island of Rhodes, likely dating back to the 1500s.
Several Rhodesli families set up businesses in Megri/Macri/Fethiye, Turkey,
during the late 1700s to the early 1900s. Today, the HANANs >from Rhodes live
throughout the world, especially in the USA (Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland,
Montgomery, Atlanta, New York), Argentina (Buenos Aires), Brazil, Panama,
South Africa, Zimbabwe, Belgium, Egypt, Turkey, and Israel.

The goals of this project are to determine if these HANANs >from Rhodes are
descended >from one couple that arrived in Rhodes during the 1500s (that is,
an “Adam and Eve”). I will also attempt to clarify the relationships between
all HANAN families that lived on Rhodes.

For further information, or to see if you qualify, please contact me
privately at bob_rubin@hotmail.com

Thanks.

There are public libraries in various areas that either have an index to
obituaries, or have filmed the actual papers. The recent past seems to be kind of
a black whole, but there are some sites out there.There are many commercial sites
which have newspapers on line - I don't think I can list them here. Make this
search at google.com - online newspaper database one of the big ones is the third
on the list.

Google has also started to index newspapers. When you are at the google search
page, click on the more link above the search box, then look for the news link on
the page that comes up.

In NY, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle 1841-1902 is on line at the Brooklyn Public Library
website.

There are subscription sites which include various newspapers - the well known
large genealogy search site has a newspaper database. The Northern NY Library
system has 21 newspapers on line for free. some of them covering the time period
you ask about. http://news.nnyln.net/index.html

I think the best thing to do is start looking at the libraries in the areas you are
interested in to see if they have any kind of indexing or filming project going on.

A problem with the Waterloo Road area of Manchester, which runs between
Cheetham Hill Road and Bury New Road, is that most of the property was
demolished many years ago and the old street names disappeared. There is
still a kosher food shop there called J A Hyman where the walls are
decorated with the old street signs. My greatgrandfather lived at 38

Lipshitz in 1893 in Brest Litovsk #general

Bernie and Sherri Lipman
 

Hello,
My father was Louis LIPSHITZ, born to Moishe and Rachel Lipshitz, in 1893 in
Brest Litovsk. He emigrated to the United States in 1911 to New York City and was
followed shortly after by his sister, Sonia, who was also born in Brest Litovsk in
1897. I beleive that Moishe's marriage to Rachel was his third. Please reply if
there is a connection.
Thank you,
Bernard M. Lipman(formerly Lipshitz)

Obituary notices #general

Hi Genners,

The British Museum's newspaper library is located at Colindale, in North London,
easily accessible >from other parts of the city via the subway network. The actual
building is right opposite the subway station - which is the last one on that
particular line.

The staff there are amazingly helpful, though it is sometimes helpful to phone
ahead to discuss what it is you want to search because it can often take a little
time to pull the necessary files. They will also take and mail copies for a modest
fee, but I am not sure if they can be requested online.

Ascher family #general

esther morag <marriana@...>
 

I am seeking information about the ASCHER family >from PEINE (e of Hannover). My
grandfather August Ascher was born in Peine in1848 and so were his ancestors up to
1774. He moved to Hamburg in 1886 after he married Esther geb. Luria and died
there in 1918. In Hamburg he dealt with Imp/Exp to North America. A business later
passed on to his son Rudulf Ascher. Does anybody come >from Peine ??? I want to
know who was August's mother , did he have any siblings, where did they come
from ??? How do I get information about the Jewish cemetry in Peine ??? I got the
above information >from the local archive, but very partial. My father Dr. Otto
Ascher was born in Hamburg and immigrated to Israel in 1936.

Also, there was a large Ascher clan in NAUGARD,POMMERN (once Prussia) during
the18th and 19th . I got the information fron Salt Lake city. Anybodie's
relatives???

Ascher is a very common name.Most of them came >from Hamburg, but immigrated
to the U.S.A and I dont think that they are related .

his branch >from GRADZANOWSKY to GROSS. Other branches changed >from
Gradzanowsky to GOLDSTEIN and LEWIS. Make sure you have posted your names

This is why it is so important to collect every family document you can find

every official document. The web is not your only source of information.
