Viewmate Postcard Translations -- Russian #general

Arnold Davidson
 

On Jan. 20 I posted the message below. I have since been informed that,
since they are in Cyrillic, they are in Russian not Polish.


I have posted two postcard scans on Viewmate for which I need loose
translations. They are in Cyrillic script but I don't know if the
language is Polish or Russian. I would appreciate more exact
translations of any important information they may contain. They were
probably sent by my maternal grandmother to her in-laws in the US after
my grandfather's death in 1911.

The postings are on Viewmate at the following addresses:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM25700

Shalom to you all,
I wanted to ask if anyone heard about the escape of Jews >from the Soviet
Union in the thirties or during the Holocaust, while crossing the Bering

Researching Moritz WASSERHART #general

rickglaser@...
 

I found among my grandmother's things a copy of the Protocols >from the 1897
Zionist Congress in Basel. Pasted on the inside cover is a photo of
Moritz Wasserhart. He is a bespectacled man in uniform and under his name are
the dates 1893-1915.

I have not come across his name in any of my Glaser-Pick-Stein-Schiller
family.

The inscription above and below the photo is:

Gewenes Eigentum des
Moritz Wasserhart
1893-1915

Any ideas who he might be?

Researching Ellin Filin #general

Don Sugarman <sugarman@...>
 

I am looking for any information on Ellin Filin, >from St. Petersburg,
Russia, who emigrated to the US in Dec 1906 or Jan 1907. An article from
the Feb. 8, 1907, Utica Herald-Dispatch describes his flight >from Czarist
Russia, having been a student activist, who incited a riot of fellow
students against the Black Hundred. He was the son of Dr. Man Filin,
a prominent physician. In 1907 he made his home in Little Falls, NY,
with "a relative," my great grandfather, Prof. Louis Sugarman, until Nov. 1907,
when he enlisted in the US Navy and mustered in in Boston. He was honorably
discharged a few months later, because he could not understand English well
enough to follow orders. We can find no other information about him after
his military discharge and presume he returned to Russia to join the fight
against the Czar.

Any leads or follow-up information on Ellin Filin after Feb. 1908 would be
most appreciated. (The recent attack with acid on Sergei Filin, artistic
director of the Boshoi Ballet, rekindled our interest in researching Ellin
Filin.) Thank you.

Searching for descendants of Joseph NEWMAN and Paul NEUMAN #general

sbloom@...
 

I am looking for information on the descendants of Joseph Newman, b.
about 1898 in Narodichi, Ukraine to Abram Dov NEMOY and Ethel Glassbaum.
He married Esther (don't know the married name). He seems likely to
be the same Joseph Newman who died in Chicago in 1970 (though I don't
know for sure).

I am also looking for information on Joseph's brother, Paul Neuman
(yes, it seems he used the alternate spelling), born about a year later,
and married to Ida Friedman (who may have been some sort of a cousin
of his, since his father's first wife was name Friedman, as were
other cousins). He also lived in Chicago, but may have moved to LA
or Texas, as did some of his siblings. He may have had a son Jerome,
who matches a tree I found on line.

I have combed Ancestry for info, so I know about when they came to
the US via Canada (as NEMOY), and found them in the censuses,
etc. But I'd like to be able to find out about folks still living who
descend >from my great grandfather's brothers Joseph and Paul.

Please respond to me directly with specific information.

Thank you.

These Germans were invited by Catherine the Great (herself German of course)
in the 18th Century to settle in the steppe lands in the south-east. I believe
that most of them were members of German sects (Amish, Hutterites, Mennonites
are names that come to mind), like those that came to North America around
the same time. Not because Catherine wanted the sects, but because they were
more likely to make the move. Of course, at the same time Catherine staffed
the newly established Academy of Science, etc., with German scholars, etc.,
who settled down and became Russian. Look at the administrative structure of
Russia in the 19th Century and you will see many German and other foreign names.
Of course, many became Orthodox and thoroughly Russian while retaining German
surnames. (Although both Lutheranism and RC were officially recognized
religions to accomodate the Germans.)

What happened to the ethnic Germans 1941-45 is another question...
In general this population did not include Jews, who were not welcome
in Catherine's Russia.
