I am researching Etta (or Yetta) ANOLECK (with spelling variants as above).
I believe that her maiden name was KAPLAN, and that she was originally >from
Lithuania. She was born sometime between 1865-1870. She immigrated to the
US around 1886, and was married to David (or Davis) ANOLECK, around 1886 or
1887. I am unsure whether they were married before or after they immigrated.
In any case, they settled in Springfield, Massachusetts. David died in 1904,
and Etta in 1917, both in Springfield, Mass.

I believe that she was related to a SUHER family, also >from Springfield, but
I know no details.

I would greatly appreciate hearing >from anyone who might know anything about
these ANOLECKs, or perhaps the SUHERs of Springfield, Mass.

Jonathan,

My grandmother (Lola Gordin Moher nee Chait) and her six siblings (who
survived to adulthood) said ( to all they met) that they were from
"Riga". Here is the real story...

Eilat Gordin Levitan

Jonathan and Eilat:

I merely want to mention that my Litwak grandparents also claimed a
Latvian link, and never said they were Litwaks:

My grandfather, who called himself Morris Black when he arrived in New
York about 1905, apparently said he was >from Minsk and met his wife
(called Rebecca Cohen in the U.S) when he was in the Russian Cavalry,
stationed in Riga, Latvia (implying she was a Riga resident). At least
that is what his daughter (my Aunt Rose) told me. But in his
naturalization papers he says that he was >from Kovno and that his wife
was >from Shadova (near Kovno).

I actually have no other information about these people before their
arrival in New York (with three children) -- except that my
grandmother's father's name was Isaac. I posted this message not only
to add to the thread about Litwaks claiming to be >from Riga (and in this
case Minsk as well), but also in case someone might possibly have more
clues about the origins of my grandparents. I have tried in vain to
find more information about them, using what I thought were their
Yiddish surnames (Svarts, Kagan, etc.).

Best to all,

Scmul Gronem WASSERMAN #general

Rita
 

I have found an article, which I think is a newspaper, called Paraat. It is
written in Dutch. I think it could contain the name of my grandfather's
brother, Scmul Gronem WASSERMAN, believed to have perished in the holocaust.

I would be grateful if someone who knows Dutch could have a look for me (a
person comes to mind already)

You can do a search for WASSERMAN. I think the name is on page 13.
The heading on the previous page ss Namen, Die Genoemd Zijn. It translates
to Names that are mentioned.

The Moderator has kindly already looked for me & has told me the following:
'I did find a word "opduiken" that means to emerge >from hiding. That
suggests that this is a list of those who emerged >from hiding in Limburg
and Brabant'

Can any one confirm this & if this is the case is there anywhere that anyone
knows of where there might be more information advising what happened to
these people. Did they survive?

The link to Paraat is
http://resources2.kb.nl/010435000/pdf/DDD_010436114.pdf

Thanking you in advance
And many thanks to the Moderator who also was able to supply the link to the
PDF.
