Sophia WARSZAWCZYK Smolian, poet philosopher #general

Mark Strauss
 

Dear Jewishgen enthusiasts,
I'm trying to find publications of my great-great aunt, Sophia Warszawczyk Smolian,
originally >from Kovno and Lodz, sister of my great-grandmother Anna Warszawczk
Markel.

In her death, notice published in the NY Times on 11/23/1933, it stated the
following: "Sophia Smolian, Yiddish poet and philosopher, widow of Oscar Smolian,
New York merchant, died yesterday at the home of her son... She was born in Kovno,
Lithuania, seventy six years ago. Her writings include two volumes of poems and one
volume of philosophy."

In researching yiddish poets and philosophers, I can not find any records of her
work. Does anyone have any knowledge of her publications? I would be most
appreciative.

Mark Strauss in New York
Searching: Strauss >from Zeteny Slovakia; Berkowitz >from Slovakia; Markel (Margul)
from Lodz; and Brodie/Brody/Brauda/Broido >from Ketovsky, Vilna Gubemia, Lithuania
and Zizmai, Lithuania

I am interested in locating descendants of the Frank (b. 1830) and Louisa (b. 1836)
MANDELBAUM (MANDLEBAUM family), originally >from Bohemia, who settled in Sacramento,
CA, where their children were born. They later settled in San Francisco.

The children were:

H.M. (b. 1855) Mercedes (b. 1858) married Ludwig Arnstein and had three daughters
Helen, Gertrude and Mabel Louis

Fiesco (b. 1859) married Gussie. He was an attorney. Raoul (Richard or Dick) (b.
1861), married Winnie Goodkind. Moved to Denver and New York.

Camilla (b. 1863) Olga (b. 1865) married Sigmund L. Ackerman and had children
Robert L., Elizabeth and James A. She was a well-known artist.

Thank you,

Re: Suicide in San Francisco #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

It is usually unlikely that anything would have been mentioned regarding a suicide
unless it was first thought to be murder or something like. I doubt that the the
relatives would have put anything in the paper about it. However, it is possible to
look on-line for mentions of your relative in the newspaper of the day which was
the San Francisco Chronicle. Unfortunately, they have no mention of any such
person by that name.

However, there is mention in the 1918 San Francisco City Directory of a Philip and
Nina Halperin family living in San Francisco at 1152 Eddy. He was a cutter. He is
also listed in several prior directories. By 1923, there are several more Halperin
families listed: Edward and Helen, Nathan and Dora, and Samuel. In addition,
during this time, there was also a performer, Nan Halperin, who appeared in San
Francisco.

In 1918, there was a Morris Halpern, a trunk maker, living at 2553 Folsom. In 1923,
there is an Esther Halpern, widow of Morris Halpern, livng at 245 Silliman.
Perhaps this is the person you are looking for.

IRWIN WOLFE
 

Does anyone plan to visit the Jewish cemetery in Briceni, Moldava? If so I'm trying
to locate my grandfather's grave there.I have a photo of the headstone taken in
1936. I have no idea whether it still stands. His name: Yitzchok Wolfbein
(Volfbeyn). Year of death: 1921 Place of death: The town of Korman, Moldova (then
part of Romania)on the shore of the Dniestr (Nistru) River. He was shot by the
Petluras. He lived in Zinkov, Ukraine (this too is engraved on the stone).

If you do visit. a photo or photos would be greatly appreciated.

Marvin, you asked about the town of Antonowka. JewishGen's ShtetlSeeker
has many, many listings for towns of that name in Ukraine. Go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocTown.asp and type in the town name.

In addition, the Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP has been translating various
documents relating to the towns of the Kremenets District. The town name
Antonovka (within 50 miles of Kremenets) shows up in 25 entries in our
Indexed Concordance of Personal Names and Town Names. You can search
through this at our Shtetlinks website,
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Kremenets/web-pages/index.html. Let

A cousin's son visited the town where his grandmother Gitel Reis lived. He can only
tell me she "came >from Kogenitze which is very close to Varsov (Warszawa). It's a
small town. She described a river and a Jewish cemetery next to her house and was it
exactly what I found! " I have searched on line and can not find what this town is

Marvin,

If you go to JewishGen's homepage and search for the town Antonowka
you'll find a listing for a town in Ukraine, near Rovne (now Rivne).
But there are other towns with this name as well, especially if you
spell it as Antonovka or (Ukrainian) Antonivka. For example, there is
also one near Uman. Maps.google.com lists 5 or 6 depending on the
spelling. Some of them are reasonably close to Stavishche.

A great place to find all of these is http://geonames.nga.mil/ggmagaz/
geonames4.asp. It'll give you latitude and longitude and the current
name of the region (oblast) in Ukraine where each of these towns is
found. You can then compare these to Stavishche, and that might take
you further in your search.

Dear Geners,

a City called Antonowka, Russia. I have found no mention of this
city in a world atlas, Map of Russia 1914,and an Internet search.
Does anyone know this name or have any information on this city.
I am assuming that it is in Russia or Ukraine. He was born in 1885
as a reference date.
