SUBJ: ViewMate translation request: Yiddish and possibly Russian

I've posted five postcards on ViewMate that I would appreciate
assistance in translating. I believe that some are in Yiddish, the
others, I'm not sure, maybe Russian?? My grandparents were from
Bialystok and Babruisk. We are hoping that these postcards will offer
clues as to who and where are families are from, their histories and
clues as to their actual names!
The postcards are on ViewMate at the following addresses:

Researching SHAPIRO #general

Yisroel Shapiro
 

Dear Everyone,

I am writing you >from Rokiskis, Lita. I was in Solak/salakas, utena
and zarasia. I found my some info on my gordon and munitz families.
Not much more than I knew . I did not see halevi on my great
grandfather grave so maybe we were not leviem after all.
Please pardon if hard to read. I am borrowing a computer and he wants
it back soon. I am simply trying to get the main idea on the computer
and contuie on my phone. As we cannot post via phone.

The main reason I am writing is my Shapiro come >from a small village
called Neciuiskai /natyoskuk. I know there was also a tsirt family
which might be related to. Where would be your guess where `i would
look for graves is they might exist ? I thought rorkrois and what I
could read not many . then again I only know the names common to me.
I am going tommrow to kamai where I know there is a lieb ben chaim
Shapiro buried >from my n town. I do not know if I will find him but I
hope i Will. My dream is to find gg grandfather zalman vevel who
died near 1900. As his wife writes on 1900 census she was already a
widow in usa. So he passed in 20 years of that.

Shapiro married Krinzman/krentzman. I would love to find out more
info about that family. I have a much of names and towns and not sure
where to go first and what I will make out of it.

If you were in any of the towns I list below please give me feed
back.. When we were in salakas we met a woman who knew the people
that lived in salakas and she did research . Would love to find
similar people.

I have a grandfather moshe ben zaskind munitz who I found a record he
was >from Salakas and died in Zarasai. We went to look for him. We
found a woman munitz but not him. where else should we look he is not
on the salakas list. unless he is one of the tombstone that fell.
Could there have been anothe cemetery in zariasi.

It seems that might be some clue in Juzintai for Shapiro and
krinzman.. i simply need the code word to but it together. Where is
the cemetery?

I see possible people in Ponevesh /panevezys. does anyone know if
there a list for the cemetery there? What about kovno.

gordon - salakas , anikst, utena\
munitz - salakas - utena - breslua , lita \
shapiro - juzhint , natuhskoyk \
krinzman - juzhuit - pasvalys , ponvezh , bazasi

thanks
please any one have a clue or hint.

Searching for Weisman/Kempinski Families in Warsaw #general

ronald Wallace
 

I am researching a Weis(s)man family who were born in Luck Poland, now
Lutsk, Ukraine.

Anschel Weisman son of Moses Weissman was born around 1871 and married a
Mindel Steinberg. They had 5 children, one of who emigrated to England and I
have all that family's information.

The remaining four, 2 boys and 2 girls remained in Poland and we know that
the two girls married and went to live in Warsaw. Sabina Weisman married
Senia Litvak and Macia Weisman married someone of the last name Kempinski.
We believe that all four perished in the Holocaust, however Macia and Mr
Kempinski had a son Maurice Kempinski who was able to jump >from the
transport taking them to Auschwitz and hid in the woods. He was taken in by
a lady whom he subsequently married and was sheltered for the entire war
period. We know this because he made contact with and visited the English
family in 1971. We also know that Mr. Kempinski Sr. and Mr Litvak were an
architect and a Dentist, but we are not certain which was which.

We have to assume that Maurice Kempinski's wife was not Jewish since she had
sheltered him during the war. We do not know if they had any children, but
we know they were living in Warsaw in 1971

We do not know anything about the two male siblings who were named Israel
and Abraham Weisman. It could be that they also lived in Warsaw before the
war, but we have no knowledge of that.

I would be interested if anyone could point me in the right direction to try
to research the Kempinski family and perhaps how to find out information
from the Warsaw records. If anyone knows of a reliable researcher who could
research these people in Warsaw, I would appreciate any information.

Please reply privately. @ronaldw6

Re: German research #general

Eva Lawrence
 

In the very comprehensive index of my large-scale Rheinland-Pfalz-Saarland
(sic) touring map, I found two places called Barweiler, one of which was
slightly South of Kreutznach and very likely is the place of birth of Aubrey
Jacobus's ancestor. Although it wasn't actually marked on this map, a
search in Google maps should locate the place exactly, as it did the small
village where my own ancestors lived. The way the address is formulated
suggests that the birth took place while the village was under French rule,
which means that there is likely to be a birth certificate in the local
civil archives, giving the names of the parents. In 1808 Kreutznach, which
was part of the Kreis (Arrondissement) Koblenz, became part of the
Confederation of the Rhine, and it's to Koblenz I'd look for the
documentation. I must warn you that the original record may well not only be
in French, but may also use the French Revolutionary Calendar.
