Barnett ASHENFARB obituary - Thanks for helpful research #general

Chris Gould <oldandintheway9@...>
 

Dear All

In response to a recent request I made for an obituary for my great-uncle
Barnett ASHENFARB (New York), I had a number of helpful responses but
Barbara Zimmer also provided me with additional information on surviving
family members. As a result of her work, I have been able to establish
contact with cousins in Florida and I wanted to publicly thank Barbara for
the wonderful outcome that has resulted >from her kind diligence.

NB: Barnett arrived in NY in 1908 and established a mirror factory in the
Bronx. His story is nicely told in this piece at

SILBERT/SHOUFMAN in Winnipeg- follow up tidbits #general

yehuda frischman
 

I wanted to add two more interesting tidbits to my post about the our
SILBERT/SHOUFMAN family last week:

To review: Many years ago, my late aunt, Sarah SILBERT PINX, wrote a
brief family telling of her grandparents Sholem and Passye SHOUFMAN,
and Meier and Mariam SILBERT, as well as her parents (my grandparents)
Leizer and Malka SILBERT, their life in Bessarabia (She writes that
she was born in Ananiev), the pogroms there, and the decision of my
zeide Meier and later, his son my zeide Leizer to come to Canada.

As I mentioned, Zeide Meier, ever the pioneer, saw the writing on the
wall, and with ever more increasing antisemitism in Bessarabia,
decided to make a fresh start, came to Canada in the 1880s and helped
build the Canadian Transcontinental railroad. My grandparents, Zeide
Leizer and Babba Malka, though came later, arriving in January 1908,
after surviving terrible pogroms.

What I didn't tell you, though, was that Babba Malka's parents, zeide
Sholem and Babba Passye had many, many children, something like 18
(though I am not sure of the number, I am cc'ing this to cousins who
perhaps can correct me!). When Babba Malka said goodbye to her
parents, she never heard >from them again, though she repeatedly
attempted wrote them. She always suspected that they were massacred
in pogroms, but how can we ever know?

But one other interesting tidbit that we hope someday we can resolve
is that Babba Malka on more than one occasion mentioned that the great
violin virtuoso, Nathan MILSTEIN, was a cousin. I wonder if anyone
has any thoughts on how to verify this?

With the aid of Viewmate, I recently learned the names of my
great-great-great grandparents (Berek & Hai Rubinsztajn) >from the death
record of my great-great grandfather. With that information I reviewed the
copies that I have of records for family names and found that I had a death
record for Berek Rubinsztajn and marriage records for two daughters of Berek
and Hai.

I've posted the death record 13081 for Berek Rubinsztajn at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/memberadmin/submissionsview.asp?ID=13081

and the marriage record for his daughter Bayla at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/memberadmin/submissionsview.asp?ID=13082

The record for his other daughter Rochla 13083 should be posted shortly.
I'd be interested in any information that might help me verify this
connection. In addition to Rochla and Bayla, my great-great-great
grandparents also had a son Josek.

I'm not aware of any quotas in existence before the Immigration Act of 1924
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_immigration_legislation).

There must have been some other influencing factor at that time, since two
of my uncles first went to live in Buenos Aires before they arrived in the
US in December, 1911. However, the rest of the family came directly >from
Romania in January, 1921.

Perhaps it was easier or less expensive to go that route. Baron Hirsch's
Jewish Colonization Association had established several settlements in
Argentina by then. According to the Wikipedia article, "between 1906 and
1912, some 13,000 Jews immigrated to Argentina every year"
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Jews_of_Argentina).
