Your software vendor may support it. Eg The Master Genealogist has a
chart printing service. You upload the file to them and they mail it to you.

LEAF nee LIEBERMAN nee LIFSCHITZ from Swislowitz Volkovysk Grodno #belarus

rlberliner@...
 

The original family surname was LIFSCHITZ (also many spellings) and in
Swislocz it was LIEBERMAN. My g-uncle was Joseph Osher LIFSCHITZ. He married
Basha Jazelov. Their daughter, Sarah, immigrated to the U.S. and changed
the name to LEAF as did the other children who immigrated. My dad, Sam I.
LEAF came over as Schaie LIEBERMAN and then assumed LEAF as Sarah sponsored
his arrival into the U.S. My Uncle Max also took LEAF. Uncle Morris retained
the surname LIEBERMAN.

Swislowitz is as my dad wrote it as where he was from. Svislach, Swislocz,
Svislocius, Svislac, Sislevitch, Sislevits, Svislovitch, Svislovitz,
Svislotch, Svislots are the same town with different pronunciations. Please
see http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Svisloch

I have been searching for an English translation of a Svisloch Yizkor or a
Volkovysk book to find out what happened to my grandparents and my two
aunts, given names unknown. My grandparents were Alte Neome AIN and
Samson/Shimshon LIEBERMAN.

Please reply privately with information about the Yizkor books and how I can
view them, as well as other information and suggestions pertinent to my
search.

Thank you very much.

How did the tombstone of Josef and Rosalie MONATH moved? #austria-czech

lahad_y@...
 

Shalom Sigs,
I am researching family MONATH >from Malacky, Slovakia.
Josef MONATH died in 1909 and his funeral took place in Malacky. His wife
Rosalie nee GRUNHUT died in Vienna in 1914, and also her funeral took place
in Malacky. I got the information >from their obits. I was astonished to see
that their tombstones are found in Znojmo (Znaim ) about 100 km NW of
Malacky.
There are pictures of the tombstones >from the cemetery:
http://jab.wz.cz/hrbitov/Katalog/Kat_41.htm
http://jab.wz.cz/hrbitov/Katalog/Kat_42.htm
David GROSSMANN, took the pictures while he did a research on the Jews of
Znojmo. He wrote that he does not know where the original place of the 2
tombstones, is.
Do you have any clue?

Lubaczow, Cieszanow, Niemstow resources #galicia

Orit Lavi
 

Dear friends

I would appreciate info regarding vital records or other
resources for the above towns.

While searching the Galicia message archive, I did see that in
2005, Lubaczow's records were defined "missing", and
consequently - the records for Cieszanow and Niemstow as
well. However, not being sure about the definition of "missing",
I would like to verify that these records do not exist.

Additionally, I wonder if there are any other resources for the
above towns, for the years 1910 and earlier (not including
Holocaust oriented resources).

Many thanks

Orit Lavi, Israel

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Jacob SAFRIN in Czernovitz / Chernivtsi #ukraine

steinsteve@...
 

I have known for quite a while that my wife's great-grandmother was born Ida
(Ite) SAFRIN, that she came to the US >from Czernovitz around 1905, and that
her father's name was Jacob SAFRIN. Ida died in New York in 1932 at the
approximate age of 75. I believe she had a maternal half-brother in the US.

I just found a JOWBR entry for a Tyna (Esther) WEISSGLAS, buried in
Chernovtsy/Chernivtsi, who also the daughter of one Jacob SAFRIN. Tyna died
in 1929, was clearly an adult, but no age is given on the headstone, and no
information that would give a clue as to her age or any relationships. She
is listed as "Ishah Tznuah V'yeshara" (a modest and upright woman).

There is also a burial for a 17-year-old Feibush WEISSGLAS in 1919. No other
WEISSGLAS burials in the Chernivtsi cemetery. Perhaps he was Tyna's son.

So given the population of Chernivtsi, the time period, the surname, and the
number of burials in the Chernivtsi cemetery records, what is the likelihood
that the two Jacob SAFRINs are the same person?

I've posted a photo on Viewmate of a young man named PASTERNAK in a Polish

photo is a memento dated 27 October 1932, photo studio "Moderne",

The town you're looking for is probably Nyiribrony, in Szabolcs county
(now part of Szabolcs-Szatmar-Bereg). Many town and villages prepend
Nyir or Nagy to the name.

TiszaSzentMarton is a village on the Tisza River, northeast of Kisvarda,
near the Ukrainian border in Szabolcs.

These towns may not have their own entries in the LDS microfilms. When
Austria-Hungary required metric data be kept by the Jewish community,
the data of smaller towns was kept in nearby communities that were large
enough to have their own synagogue. So, the data for TiszaszentMarton
might be mixed in with the data >from Kisvarda.

Best of luck in your searches.
