ZARSKIJ family in Cetatea Alba #romania

Tomas Kertesz <Tomas.Kertesz@...>
 

I have recently discovered >from the archive in Ismail, Ukraine that the
name of my step-grandfather was Jakob ZARSKIJ who owned an alcohol
factory in Cetatea Alba (today Belgorod-Dnestrovskij, Ukraine). Is
there anybody who can give me more information about the ZARSKIJ family?
Any Relatives?

Virtual Shtetl Family Albums #galicia

Thanks to Celia Male for directing us to Valerie Schatzker's lovely
"Family Album" on the Drohobycz Shtetlinks site. Yasher koach,
Valerie!

As a Shtetlinks webmaster myself, I would like to note that to do
something of this sort, you must have the cooperation of others who
are researching your town. Getting photos and stories >from them may
be like drawing a needle >from a tar pit or Excalibur >from its stone.
In addition, to do a site as beautifully as Valerie has done hers
would appear to require advanced coding skills that many of us (me
included) may not have or a coding program that we may not use.

Virtual community #galicia

Suzan Wynne <srwynne@...>
 

Celia Male is quite correct that the Drohobycz Administrative
District site in ShtetLinks beautifully reflects a "virtual
community" concept. Valerie Schatzker and her partners are doing
a great job of graphically and narratively depicting and, where
appropriate, linking the families of the community.

I've been most gratified at the response to my call for input on
the technical aspects of how people would create a virtual
community. There is tremendous interest in this topic and a
desire to meet in Philly. I'm working on it.

If you enter the contributor's profile you'll find also a photo of
the Jewish Cemetery in Warsaw. Just note that he spells it as
cementary (>from cmentarz in Polish). It might help if you search
for more photos of his.

Recha Freier 1892-1984 - Founder of the "Jugend-Alijah" #germany

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

In case you missed the link, here are two articles about the founder of the
Jugend Aliya {Alija} organisation, the formidable Recha FREIER:

http://www.hagalil.com/deutschland/berlin/frauen/freier.htm

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recha_Freier

Recha was born in 1892 in Nord/Ostfriesland to teacher Manasse SCHWEITZER
and studied Modern Languages in Breslau. In 1919 she married rabbi Moritz
FREIER and moved to Sofia, Bulgaria in 1926. Recha and Moritz then returned
to Berlin after he was appointed Chief Rabbi. When five 16 year olds from
Eastern European came to her after they lost their jobs, she had a brainwave
one night - to take youths to Palestine to develop the country. This is the
very significant sentence in the article: Am 30. Januar 1933, dem Tag von
Hitlers Machtubernahme grundet Recha Freier bei einem Rechtsanwalt
offiziell das "Hilfskommitee fuer judische Jugendliche"

ie Recha officially {legally} founded the organisation on 30 Jan 1933, the
day Hitler took over ... The rest is history.

Recha died in Jerusalem in 1984. Einstein apparently recommended her for
the Nobel Peace Prize.

Joseph Goldschmidt in Kfar Sava asks: "Where can I find information about
the "Jugend Aliya?"

This article in German should provide some leads: Ausstellung in Frankfurt:

A 70th anniversary exhibition in Frankfurt on the rescuing of children:

Hopefully Joseph has not forgotten his German!

Rymanow 1852 census #general

Madeleine Sann <madsann@...>
 

I have a photocopy of the 1852 census of the Jews of Rymanow that Mr
Abe Bodenstein kindly sent me in the late 1990s. Not all the first
names are legible on my copy but I would be happy to look up names
for people searching ancestors. In some cases the census shows a
person either living with or censused with (the German just says
"with") another inhabitant. About a half dozen houses are marked
"presumed Jews" (no names). The census is accompanied by a very hard
to read photocopy of the layout of the town which shows where the
people censused lived.

Seeking descendants of Mollie TISCHLER in Israel #general

Martin Fischer
 

I am seeking descendants of Molly/Mollie TISCHLER/TISHLER (nee DAUST),
who survived World War II in Europe and made aliyah afterward, joining
her children in Israel who had managed to escape >from Germany earlier.
She is believed to have remarried in Israel.

Mollie was born in March 1885 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, but her
family moved to Berlin, Germany, in about 1905. There she married Dr.
Max Tischler, who is believed to have died in Berlin in 1919. I don't
know how many children she had. It is believed she may have been able
to survive World War II because her late husband had been a soldier in
the German army in World War I.

I would appreciate any help in finding descendants of Molly/Mollie
Tischler/Tishler.

1910 and 1920 Census New York and Philadelphia #general

Debbie Rose
 

Dear Genners

I'm hoping someone is familiar enough with New York and Philadelphia to
help me with the following problem. I have two people who I am trying
to find in the 1910 and/or 1920 census, but although I can find their
streets and numbers on a current map, I can't find them in the census.

The first, B Bas (first name difficult to decipher) is the contact
person for my relative (Sam Kwiczor) on a ship manifest in January 1912
- address: 1st Ave. 864, New York. When I look at the map, that address
for 1st Ave. is right on the corner of 39th St. This should fall under
Ward 21, District 1120 but the numbers on 1st Ave. only go to 690+ on
the census. I've looked through many other Wards and Districts in case
I've missed it somehow, but no luck.

The second is simply listed as Isador on my grandfather's (David
Siegel) border crossings (Dec 30/1916 and Jan 1917) >from Canada to the
US. The address is 833 N Marshall St., Philadelphia. My research
indicates that this should be Ward 13 District 180. Again the numbers
never reach the 800's but I can find this address on the current map.

I understand that these people might not have been living at these
addresses in 1910 or 1920 but it would be good to find the address on
the census in any case so that I know for sure.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
