Research WEINBERG & GOLDSTEIN families from Elbing (now Elblag, Poland) and Dirschau (now Tczew), Prussia #general

Judith Elam
 

I am researching the large WEINBERG & GOLDSTEIN families >from Elbing and
Dirschau. My ggg-grandparents were Jacob Israel WEINBERG and Rebecka
GOLDSTEIN, who were married in Dirschau in 1831. I believe the WEINBERG
family was originally >from Dirschau and settled in Elbing. I believe the
GOLDSTEIN family was >from Elbing. I have viewed the LDS films on both
Elbing and Dirschau. I have researched on the online Berlin Addressbuecher,
JGFF, FTJP, Facebook, Geni, Yad Vashem and Ancestry.com, but it is difficult
to make connections because I am missing generations in between.

Jacob Israel WEINBERG and Rebecka GOLDSTEIN WEINBERG had 16 children. One
daughter, Auguste, married Adolph Abraham JOSKE in Elbing in 1855. They
emigrated to Australia in 1861 and started one branch of the huge JOSKE
family in Australia, who are no longer Jewish. Another son, Meyer Wulff
(Max) WEINBERG, moved to Hamburg. I am in touch with his granddaughter,
daughter of Wilhelm WEINBERG. Mathilde WEINBERG married Meyer Aron SIMON in
1863 in Koenigsberg, now Kaliningrad, Russia. Emilie WEINBERG married
Bernard GOLDBERG in 1861 in Elbing. They had a son, Aron Alfred GOLDBERG in
1865, who married Hedwig MORRIS. Hedwig died in Theresienstadt, but I
cannot find Aron Alfred, nor do I know if they had children. Their 2
unmarried daughters also died in Theresienstadt.

Jacob Israel WEINBERG had 3 brothers. One of these brothers, Samuel Israel,
had 10 children. Their uncle Lewin Abraham WEINBERG had 9 children.
Surnames associated with the WEINBERG's are JOSKE, GOLDBERG, SIMON, SAPHIER,
MEYER (Freistadt), JACOBSOHN (Prussian Holland, now Paslek), GERT,
FERSENHEIM & BERNSTEIN.

Caspar GOLDSTEIN married Fanny (Vogel) LOWENSTEIN in Elbing in 1839. They
had 10 children.

I would like to continue building the WEINBERG/GOLDSTEIN trees. Please
contact me at elamj@..., if you think you are descended from, or
related to, the WEINBERG family of Elbing and Dirschau (possibly Danzig
too), or the GOLDSTEIN family of Elbing.

Polish Citizens Escape to Russia - Western Poland #general

A really good resource for information on this part of history is the
eyewitness account of Herman Kruk to be found in the book ~ "The Last
Days of the Jerusalem of Lithuania" which via Kruk's diary. It
survived the War, having that Kruk buried the Diary within the Vilna
Ghetto just hours before it's final moment.

Kruk begins his story with his exodus >from Warsaw, and the account is
one of those 'can't put this book down' experiences. Will give
anyone with an interest is this aspect of history the keen view of a
participant, at the time of it's occurrence. For anyone studying the
life of the Vilna Ghetto as well.

Researching SCHWARZ family from Schrimm, Prussia, now Srem, Poland #general

Judith Elam
 

I am researching the large SCHWARZ family, originally >from Schrimm, Prussia,
now Srem, Poland. I have viewed the LDS films on Schrimm & Kosten. The
Schrimm film only covers up to about 1847. There wasn't much on the Kosten
film. I also searched on JGFF, FTJP, Facebook, Geni, Yad Vashem and
Ancestry.com. Some SCHWARZ names appeared on Yad Vashem, but I am missing
the generations in between to make the connection.

My gggg-grandparents were Abraham SCHWARZ and Taube, born SCHWARZ, daughter
of Leiser or Simon, depending on the record. They had 12 children. My
ggg-grandfather was Simon SCHWARZ. Abraham had a brother, Leib SCHWARZ,
married to Chaje/Haie, born SCHWARZ. I am guessing that 2 brothers married
2 sisters. Some members of the SCHWARZ family, including my gg-grandfather
Michel Meier SCHWARZ, and his uncle, Ruben SCHWARZ, moved to nearby Kosten,
now Koscian. I am aware of the SCHWARZ relatives >from Kosten.

I would now like to find more descendants, both deceased and alive, of this
SCHWARZ family. Here are some of the families these SCHWARZ relatives
married into. Nearly all were found on the Schrimm film: GOLD, WEISS,
CHORYNSKI, KADISCH, LEWY, SIMON, SIMEK, KALMUS/CALMUS, KLETSCHEWER, STOLZ,
BOEHR, IGLIK, JUDA(S), SILBERSTEIN, JAPHA, JACOBS, FISCHEL and WOLFF. The
WEISS family was >from nearby Gostyn. The FISCHEL family was >from nearby
Czempin. Other place names mentioned are Lissa (Leszno), Schmiegel
(Smiegel), Berlin & Breslau (Wroclaw).

The Schrimm SCHWARZ bakery is mentioned in the book "Memories >from our
Youth" by Rabbi Hermann SCHREIBER, beautifully translated by Werner ZIMMT.

Please contact me at

elamj@...

if you think you could be descended >from the SCHWARZ family of Schrimm.

ZELDMAN from Poland #general

Ann Linder
 

Anyone researching the surname ZELDMAN?
I have looked at JGFF and I've contacted one researcher.
I have also looked at Yad Vashem's testimony dB for extended family
and I may need additional help in contacting survivors in Israel who
submitted testimonies.
Am looking for more info on Sura LINDER nee ZELDMAN. Born Warsaw 1898,
she immigrated to Palestine & practiced dentistry in Tel Aviv.
Please contact me privately if this name is familiar to you. I have a
copy of her husband, Icek Boruch's, Palestine naturalization papers in
which she also appears to be naturalized.
