Lithuania SIG #Lithuania KUPERSHMIDT KUPERSMITH COOPERSMITH - Lithuania to New York #lithuania

Jules Feldman
 

My mother's much older first cousin Ida WEINTRAUB was born in Shavli,
Lithuania in 1903.

She was married in Lithuania to Meyer KUPERSHMIDT , born Aleksotas,
Lithuania in 1905 and in 1935 they migrated to New York where her parents
Rabbi Misha Ber WEINTRAUB and his wife Bluma COHEN were living. With them
was their son, Leib KUPERSHMIDT, born 1928 in Kaunas.
Ida died in 1981 under the name Eda KUPERSMITH.

Leib KUPERSMIDT changed his name to Larry KUPERSMITH or COOPERSMITH. I
would like to find him or his family.
Meyer KUPERSHMIDT was a journalist. I would like to know in which newspapers
he wrote in Lithuania and then the USA.
Any other information on them will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jules Feldman

For pronunciations in all languages, you can visit www.forvo.com - free of
charge. You choose the language and the word/name, and then listen to native
speakers pronounce it. If the word is rare and has not yet been pronounced
online, you can submit the word for pronunciation. I am just a frequent
visitor to the site as part of my work and have no other affiliation to it.

Dear Genners,

I came across this article which announced that the great Pittsburgh Jewish
Newspaper Project is complete after 6 years of work scanning a century's worth
of newspapers.

I've used the database in the past and it's great!

I will have to do more checking for my families now that it is complete.

Hi Genners,

I need help in figuring where Oszowe is in Vilna Gubernia.
It is clearly marked as such on a 1912 ship manifest.
I have searched on JewishGen to no avail: message archives
and towns of Vilna gubernia. Any ideas???
My index to Lietuvos Zemelapis--a map of Lithuania published by the
emigre community that includes historic claims--all of Litvakland--lists
Osowo (Pol), Asava as a "church village"--a town big enough to have a
church. I do not know if this is your town, but the sound correspondence
is pretty good. The only problem is -sz- for a 'sh' sound, but 's' and
'sh' could be confused by Litvak yiddish speakers.

Czech Torah Project #general

Chuck Weinstein <cmw521@...>
 

On Wednesday, August 7, at the Conference, I will present the how to do it
of a project I have been working on to remember the Jews of Miroslav,
Czechoslovakia, a small town in Moravia.

A Torah >from Miroslav >from the Czech Memorial Scrolls Project is on permanent
loan at Temple Beth El in Huntington, NY. Of the Jewish community of about
425 in 1938, I have documented the fates of close to 400, of whom about 35
survived the war.

My talk will cover the resources I was able to consult and how the temple
has chosen to remember Miroslav. I will explain the Czech Memorial Scrolls
Project, a brief history of how these scrolls were collected and documented,
and all of the various ways I was able find documentation on the Jews of
Miroslav. This project is replicable at any of the over 1,500 synagogues
world-wide (including over 1,000 in the US) that has a Czech Holocaust
Torah. It is also valuable for those who had family in any of the Jewish
communities of the Czech Republic, specifically Bohemia and Moravia, that
were not heard >from after the war.

If your synagogue has one of these Torahs or you are looking to research
people >from Bohemia or Moravia, I hope to see you at the conference.
