3 brothers Lewitan, Leventhal and Levitt #lithuania

Karchmer Harvey <hkarchmer@...>
 

I would like to make contact with researchers who may have in their
database information on 3 brothers:

Joe Leventhal nee Lewetan, born in Vilna on 15 Dec 1876, died in
New York (Brooklyn?) on 20 Feb 1951. Joe arrived in New York >from
Rotterdam on the Noordam on 16 June 1902. His first wife was Perla
Sussman, 2nd wife was Frieda Rosenberg.

David Leventhal nee Lewentan or Lewitan, born about 1871 in Vilna, died
????. David arrived in New York on 21 July 1913. David married to
Sarah (last name unknown) in 1893 in Minsk.

Sam Levitt - the only brother to not use the Leventhal family name.
Naturalization documents use 10 Dec 1871 as his birthday, also born in
Vilna. Wife was named Pauline or alternatively Bella. She was born in
1871. They had 3 daughters: Fannie (dob 10/23/1900), Mamie (dob
12/22/1903) and Sophie (dob 5/10/1910). They lived in Brooklyn, NY for
many years.

Thank you,

Re: Different maiden names #general

Eva Lawrence
 

It seems more likely that your ggrandfather married twice, and that the two
wives had the same given name. A check of dates of birth of the children in
each case and of their mothers if available would at least allow you to see
if this is a possibility.

I have found what seems to be more children of my great grandfather in born
in Romania. I know my ggrandmother's maiden name was BERGMAN according to
marriage docs of their children in Canada. Two of the new finds list the
mother's maiden name as SCHACTER. I find it a remote possibility there would
be two different couples is Suceava with the same first names but one
different maiden name. Thoughts anyone? Interestingly enough my mother
was very good friends with a family named Schacter in Montreal but I don't
think there is a connection there.

Hi All,

Jerry Small asked about the Riga ghetto list. This may help?

I have searched the pdf on stabu 61 but don't see them. Possibly look
under this surname, "Nisenbergs" and you may find something?

the Latvian State Archives. On Oct 2, 1941, the record shows that they moved
but no new address was listed. The archivist mentions they likely were moved to
the "Riga ghetto" where there was large loss of life. What I am trying to
determine is whether they survived or not. Is there a source where those in the
ghetto are listed and their fate?"

(Canada, Israel) Israel's First Soldiers Train in Nova Scotia #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

If you are researching any of the WWI 1100 members of the Jewish Legion
including David Ben-Gurion, Abraham Isserman and Ze'ev Jabotinsky you may
find of interest this story of the Jewish Legion training in Windsor, Nova
Scotia and the troops who were part of the 39th Battalion of the
Windsor-based Jewish Legion. The training took place in Fort Edward in
Windsor, Nova Scotia.

Fort Edward is one of the oldest wooden fortifications still standing in
North America. In the summer of 1917, Windsor was home to some of Israel's
founding fathers and the place where the forerunner of the Israeli Defense
Force was forged. Jewish men >from Montreal, New York, Russia and Palestine
were trained there and the Jewish Legion was formed - one of the first
all-Jewish military forces in modern times.

While trained in Canada they were part of the British Imperial forces. The
39th Battalion of the Windsor-based Jewish Legion fought the Turkish troops
of the Ottoman Empire in June 1918. Currently there is nothing about the
role the Fort played in the creation of a Jewish fighting force.

I suppose it makes daily live in that second marriage less stressfull.

Perhaps this even was a reason for choosing her?

CAMONDO Family of Paris and Istanbul #general

David Laskin
 

I am researching the CAMONDO Family -- Sephardi Jews >from Venice who
moved to Istanbul and later to Paris. Known in their day as the
Rothschilds of the East, the CAMONDOS were an extremely wealthy and
cultured banking family who mingled with Paris high society. Comte
Moise de CAMONDO's mansion near Parc Monceau in Paris is now open to
the public as the Musee Nissim de Camondo.

The count died in 1935; during the War, his heirs were seized by the
Nazis and murdered at Auschwitz. As far as I know, there are no
survivors of the family.

I'd like to hear >from anyone who has knowledge of the history and
genealogy of this distinguished family. Thank you.
