Descendants of Rosa and Louis SILVERSTEIN #general

Lois Cohen
 

I found on the Boston 1900 census that my husband's g grandparents, Bertha
(KANTER) and Moses COHEN had a daughter Rosa (COHEN) SILVERSTEIN, who was a
widow, and her son Ali age 3 living with them at 5 Oswego St. I did
research and found that Rosa married Louis SILVERSTEIN in Boston, MA on
Oct. 25, 1889. On the marriage document it listed Louis' parents as Moses
and Annie. I have found the following children for Rosa and Louis:

Annie Silverstein born 2/15/1892 in Boston
Harris Silverstein born 12/29/1893 in Boston
Sarah/ Sadie Silverstein born 12/31/1895 in Boston
Ali>Alex>Ellis Silverstein born 7/1897 Boston

Louis SILVERSTEIN was born 1867 in Russia and died on or before 1900. I
have no information on his death. Rosa was born 1864 in Russia and died
1903 in Boston. She is buried in Montvale Cemetery, Woburn, MA. Rosa's
parent had Rosa buried under the name of Rosa COHEN SILBERSTEIN.

I found Sarah and Annie SILVERSTEIN in the 1900 census living in the Leopold
Morse Orphanage in Milton, MA.

Moses Cohen died in 1906 and Bertha Cohen died in 1907. They are both
buried in the same cemetery as Rosa in Woburn, MA.

On the 1910 census, I found Sadie and Ellis Silverstein living at the
Leopold Morse Orphanage. I found Annie listed as a lodger, stenographer in
Boston. I discovered a World War 1 draft card (1918) for Ellis SILVERSTEIN
born 7/1897 in Boston. He stated he was living with a Mrs. Annie BLOOM at 3
Wales St. Boston.

I have been unable to find additional information on Louis SILVERSTEIN or
his children. I have not been able to determine who Annie BLOOM is... was
she Ellis' sister or another relative.

Looking for your help.

Pogrom in the mid to late 1920s. BIENENFELD SOVA Family #general

David Zoldan
 

I was listening to a tape recently which has bits of a recorded history
spoken by my grandfather, Jerome (Yeruchum) BIENENFELD. My grandfather
was the son of Yehoshua David BIENENFELD and Rachel SOVA. Yehoshua
David was a son of Shmuel BIENENFELD and Chana Rochel TYK. Rachel SOVA
was a daughter of Yisrael Asher and Leah SOVA. My grandfather lived in
Kikol, Poland and his grandparents lived in Lipno, Poland. Both cities
were not far >from Warsaw.

On the tape recorded some decades ago my grandfather remembers some
antisemitism when the cossaks came through town. Most of the events
seem to have been minor except one time when grandpa was about 9 or 10
that everyone had to hide in the basement, especially the women-
grandpas mother and aunts. Grandpa was born somewhere >from 1912-1918
(we think:)) So the event which stuck out in his mind when he was 9 or
10 may have been somewhere in the 1920s.

My question: Does anybody know of a specific pogrom where thre cossaks
came through either Lipno or Kikol during the 1920s (or any in the 20th
century). I would appreciate any help on the matter. Thank you to the
group.

International Conference on Jewish Genealogy Speakers #hungary

bounce-2592340-772961@...
 

A rich and varied roster of speakers will be presenting during
the five and a half days of the 33rd IAJGS International
Conference on Jewish Genealogy to be held in Boston beginning
August 4.

Attendees will be able to choose >from 250 programs on seven
different tracks covering a wide range of topics including a
beginner's track on August 4/5, as well as computer tracks and a
film festival. The preliminary program (subject to change) will
be posted on the conference website on Tuesday, April 16th
(http://www.iajgs2013.org/program_schedule.cfm).

Many IAJGS Lifetime Achievement award winners, the luminaries of
Jewish genealogy, will give talks, including Steve Morse, Miriam
Weiner, Peter Lande, Jeff Malka, Hal Bookbinder, Warren Blatt,
Michael Tobias, and Stanley Diamond. Archivists >from Belgium, the
Czech Republic, Hungary, Israel, and Ukraine will be giving the
latest information about doing research in their countries.
Historians and experts >from England, Germany, Ireland, Lithuania,
Poland, Spain, Sweden, and the U.S. will provide the historical
context to our ancestors' lives and the methodologies to find them.

Unique to the Boston location of the conference will be several
talented local experts who have never presented at previous IAJGS
conferences. The keynote speaker will be Aaron Lanksy, the famous
and dynamic founder of the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, MA.
Ellen Smith, co-author of The Jews of Boston and a well-known
historian, museum curator, and professor at Brandeis University,
will give a talk as well as conduct walking tours of Boston's
Jewish historical sites. Sharon Pucker Rivo, Director of the
National Center for Jewish Film at Brandeis University, will
present "Jews in Focus" about the important Jewish role in film.
Genealogical researchin the New England states will be featured,
including immigration to the Port of Boston.

The annual Lucille Gudis Memorial Lecture, sponsored by the Jewish
Genealogical Society of New York, will feature two noted historians,
Annie Polland, Education Vice President at the Tenement Museum in
New York, and Daniel Soyer, professor at Fordham University. They
are co-authors of Emerging Metropolis -- the second volume of the
2012 award-winning book, City of Promises: History of Jews in New
York, which describes New York's transformation into a Jewish city.
They will speak together about the book and separately. Annie will
talk about the "Adaptation of Ritual," the complex adjustments
immigrant ancestors made to succeed, and Daniel will talk about
immigrant "landsmanschaften." Zvi Gitelman, Professor of Judaic
Studies at the University of Michigan and author of several important
books on Jewish ethnicity and identity among Eastern European Jews,
will present "Litvak-Galitsianer Wars, Jewish Cultural Geography."

In addition to updates on DNA, Holocaust research, and immigration,
areas of new focus include Sephardic Jews, Jewish cooking and
cookbooks, and a panel on cemetery restoration in both Europe and the
United States.

There also will be many hands-on computer workshops (for both Mac and

A rich and varied roster of speakers will be presenting during
the five and a half days of the 33rd IAJGS International
Conference on Jewish Genealogy to be held in Boston beginning
August 4.

Attendees will be able to choose >from 250 programs on seven
different tracks covering a wide range of topics including a
beginner's track on August 4/5, as well as computer tracks and a
film festival. The preliminary program (subject to change) will
be posted on the conference website on Tuesday, April 16th
(http://www.iajgs2013.org/program_schedule.cfm).

Many IAJGS Lifetime Achievement award winners, the luminaries of
Jewish genealogy, will give talks, including Steve Morse, Miriam
Weiner, Peter Lande, Jeff Malka, Hal Bookbinder, Warren Blatt,
Michael Tobias, and Stanley Diamond. Archivists >from Belgium, the
Czech Republic, Hungary, Israel, and Ukraine will be giving the
latest information about doing research in their countries.
Historians and experts >from England, Germany, Ireland, Lithuania,
Poland, Spain, Sweden, and the U.S. will provide the historical
context to our ancestors' lives and the methodologies to find them.

Unique to the Boston location of the conference will be several
talented local experts who have never presented at previous IAJGS
conferences. The keynote speaker will be Aaron Lanksy, the famous
and dynamic founder of the Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, MA.
Ellen Smith, co-author of The Jews of Boston and a well-known
historian, museum curator, and professor at Brandeis University,
will give a talk as well as conduct walking tours of Boston's
Jewish historical sites. Sharon Pucker Rivo, Director of the
National Center for Jewish Film at Brandeis University, will
present "Jews in Focus" about the important Jewish role in film.
Genealogical researchin the New England states will be featured,
including immigration to the Port of Boston.

The annual Lucille Gudis Memorial Lecture, sponsored by the Jewish
Genealogical Society of New York, will feature two noted historians,
Annie Polland, Education Vice President at the Tenement Museum in
New York, and Daniel Soyer, professor at Fordham University. They
are co-authors of Emerging Metropolis -- the second volume of the
2012 award-winning book, City of Promises: History of Jews in New
York, which describes New York's transformation into a Jewish city.
They will speak together about the book and separately. Annie will
talk about the "Adaptation of Ritual," the complex adjustments
immigrant ancestors made to succeed, and Daniel will talk about
immigrant "landsmanschaften." Zvi Gitelman, Professor of Judaic
Studies at the University of Michigan and author of several important
books on Jewish ethnicity and identity among Eastern European Jews,
will present "Litvak-Galitsianer Wars, Jewish Cultural Geography."

In addition to updates on DNA, Holocaust research, and immigration,
areas of new focus include Sephardic Jews, Jewish cooking and
cookbooks, and a panel on cemetery restoration in both Europe and the
United States.

There also will be many hands-on computer workshops (for both Mac and
PC) and workshops on photo identification and preservation, on document
restoration, and on various languages (German, Russian, Polish and
Hebrew). Continuing the tradition of excellence of previous conferences,
there will be an Exhibitor Hall, a Resource Center, author events, and
book signings throughout the week.

Descendants of Schoenle STEINER OBERMAYER- born about 1780 in Bavaria #germany

Arthur Obermayer <obermayer@...>
 

Please contact me if any of the people listed below appear to be your
ancestors. The women are all matrilineal descendants (only through
mothers and daughters) of my 2-greats grandmother, Schoenle STEINER
OBERMAYER, who was born about 1780 in Bavaria.

If we can confirm the connection, I can provide one line of your
ancestry with reasonable certainty back to the early 1500s. Furthermore,
if your connection to the listed women is only matrilineal, you (and
others with a similar connection) should have essentially identical
mtDNA to Schoenle Steiner Obermayer. If we can find two individuals
with only this matrilineal connection, the validity of this genealogical
information can be confirmed by mtDNA measurements.

In the listing below husbands names are provided only for better
identification purposes. Sons' names are only provided below if they
may be living today, and therefore would have the same mtDNA (i.e., >from
their X chromosome) as their mothers.Many of these people lived over a
hundred years ago.

This can be a powerful way of establishing and confirming relationships.

POSSIBLE CONNECTIONS: Roland and Johanna Abrahams; Jane Abrahams; Julius
and Helena Bachmann; Sidney and Dorothy Berney; Sirra or Lieselotte Birn;
Moses and Flora Brenner; Claribel Cone; Elsa or Marga Goldscheider;
George and Carolyn Green; Edna or Andrew Green; Isaac and

Introduction Pollask or Obert #austria-czech

nanophotonic@...
 

How much could Hungarian roots also include Slovak origins in Ruthenia or Carpathia?

My family has a very strange and possibly tragic origin.
As my Great-Grandfather, Steve Pollask Obert, who was born August 6, 1888 said that he was a
German-Jew.


Yet now Lars Menk of Berlin has now found evidence that he might have been an ethnic Slovak.

He was an orphan who emigrated to British-Columbia as a young child. But he said his Parent's owned a
steel mill and that his Parent's were murdered for that steel mill.

His name has iterations of possibly Steve Pollask, Steve Obert, Stefan Obert, and Steve P. Obert

Maybe I should join the Czechoslovakia SIG or Austria-Czech SIG as well?

With Kind Regards,
