MAJEROWICZ #general

It has been some time since I posted an enquiry, since I have been
up against the proverbial brick wall. So I will decided to try
another angle, i.e. looking for more distant relationships.

Majer and Tauba MAJEROWICZ were the parents of Khaia, born in 1841.
Khaia married Moszk ZELMANOWICZ circa 1965.
Khaia and Moszk were the parents of Sara ZELMANOWICZ, born 1972 in Lomza,
Poland per Sara's U.S. naturalization documents.
Khaia died in Pultusk, Poland, 3-21-1898. Her death notice states
that her spouse Moszk ZELMANOWICZ was living at the time of her death.

Circa 1890, Sarah married Abram SAFIAN. They had eight children, all
born in Pultusk, Poland, one of which eventually became my father.

I would appreciate any additional information regarding regarding
these families, in Lomza, Pultusk, or elsewhere.

NY Public Library Look Ups Offer #general

A. E. Jordan
 

I have done this in the past and I will offer again to do some look ups at
the New York Public Library for people. I do simple lookups for people --
ones that do not involve hours of research -- but I do ask you to cover my
costs of doing the research.

The types of things I can offer are:

NY State Census >from 1905, 1915, 1925 -- but you need to have an address
Vital Index lookups - the library has more indexes of births, deaths,
marriages than online
newspapers
city directories
phone books


If I do this it would likely be on Monday this week and I only work at the
42nd Street building and the Science Industry and Business Library. (I can
not go to the Municipal Archives or NARA this week.)

If you have something you are looking for email me and we can discuss if it
is possible for me to help out.

Please understand that if you write me and say Uncle Moshe lived in
Manhattan can you find him my answer is no - that requires extensive time and
compensation -- but if you write and say Uncle Moshe lived at 86 Grand Street,
Manhattan in 1905 can you get me his Census record the answer is yes. Or
Uncle Moshe arrived in 1904 going to a person he says was his son at 123
Such and Such Street, Manhattan. Can you check them in the Census/City
Directory the answer is yes.

Also always happy to answer questions about NYC research/resources.

Dear Genners,

Raia nee BERKMAN SHLIOMOVICH SHIF filed a page of testimony for her
husband Moshe Mendel (Maurice) Shliomovich and father-in-law Shalom Aba in
1985 when she was living at Hapelmach ***, Jerusalem.

She was born about 1905. I am seeking members of her family who are my cousins.

Please contact me privately if you know this family and/or would
be kind enough to see if you can find a family member at this
address or elsewhere in Israel. I am not sure how common a name
Shif is.

Thank you very much for your help.
Best Regards,

Susan Goldsmith

ViewMate Translation: Russian to English (Jakob WEKSLER/Chana RADOSZYCKI) #general

jeffwexler@...
 

I've posted on ViewMate the 1884 marriage certificate (VM15034) >from
Gowarczow, Poland for my great grandparents, Jakob WEKSLER and
Chana RADOSZYCKI. I'd like help in translating >from Russian to
English names, dates, and other pertinent information.

I believe that Jakob was born in Klobuck and that his family moved to
Plawno (and, later, to Czestochowa). I also believe that Chana was
born in Gowarczow to Mosiek RADOSZYCKI and Cylka (RUBIN) RADOSZYCKI.
Jakob and Chana moved to Konskie in about 1890. Jakob died in 1896,
and Chana remarried.

Here's a direct link to the certificate:

Beirut Jewish cemetery online: Ashkenazi and Sephardic burials #general

Jeff at SG
 

In 1948 there were 24,000 Jews living in Lebanon, mostly in Beirut.
Today there are only 30 elderly individuals living in fear and the only
remaining vestiges of the Jewish community are the Magen Abraham
synagogue and the Jewish cemetery of Beirut. During the Lebanese civil
war the cemetery (in which a total of 3,300 Jews were buried) served as
a the boundary of the Christian Phalange forces, and though damaged by
bombs, was never desecrated by either side.

Nagi Georges Zeidan, a Lebanese Christian, undertook the task of
memorializing the Lebanese Jewish Community by researching its history
and creating a database of 3,184 tombstone inscriptions using both the
cemetery and civil registrations. The database - which includes both
Ashkenazi and Sephardic burials - is now part of the many searchable
databases in SephardicGen at

Menachim Yehuda GALAS #general

Debbie Long <d_long@...>
 

Dear Friends,

Yesterday, I received a stunning piece of information >from the
International Tracing Service. My uncle, Menachim Jehuda GALAS,
apparently survived the Holocaust.

Jehuda, my mother's beloved brother, was born in 1920. He was in the Lodz Ghetto;
then deported to Skarzysko-Kamienna, then Buchenwald. He stayed in Buchenwald
until April, 1945, and then was apparently deported to Terezin.

Terezin was liberated in April, 1945, but I do not know what happened to
him or others liberated >from this camp.

I have a friend looking for Menachim in Israel using Israeli phone
directories, and I wrote to the National Archives in Prague yesterday.
Of course, if Menachim Yehuda is alive, he would be 91 years old... but
perhaps he has/had children. I have checked the Yad Vashem
database--nothing.

Do you have any suggestions as to where I could turn for more help? The
Terezin Ghetto website and other resources do not suggest what happened
to the prisoners after liberation.

Thank you for any help or suggestions you can provide.
