"All I ever knew was that I was named after my great uncle Moshe, and
that Moshe died in a motor accident in Salt River, six weeks before his
wedding.

Then a photo given to me eighty years after he died changed everything.

This is the story of Great Uncle Moshe and his fiancee Paula's
ill-fated romance in the late 1920s, starting in Orla, Poland, and
ending in Cape Town.

My part begins with this photo, offered as a "reward" for my
enthusiastic interest in my family history. While the photo came with
only limited information, it became my mission to follow any leads and
so try to unravel his life, piece by piece. It led to surprising outcomes
that drove me to research, follow the trail and travel to South Africa,
Poland, Belarus, the UK, Germany, Israel, the US and Canada in search
of the answers!

This presentation covers the story of a life, which ended 85 years ago,
and the principles of good detective work and sharing."

The lecture Eli gave in July at the IAJGS Conference in Jerusalem.

Many thanks to those of you who replied to Barbara Algaze with information
concerning the people she is researching and suggestions as to where else
she might look. (Barbara and I briefly corresponded about another name which
is how she came to ask me about tracing descendants of a Mr Gilbert in
Harrow). I think she has had some fantastic responses!

SUDOWITZER / SUDOBICZER #general

cosi38 <cosi38@...>
 

Sudowitzer/Sudobiczer etc.
I am at wit's end. Have been trying to find where this name came >from but
found absolutely nothing.
I have been searching in the area of Rovne where the family came from. I did
not find anything before 1850 but there is no mention anywhere where they
originally came from.
There are some in Bialystock. Also I found quit a lot in Lithuania,
Sudobitch.
Can anybody help with this?
Interesting is that often when I search under Sudowitzer in JewishGen the
name Sheydwaser appears?
Could that have something to do with the search function?
Thanks in advance for any help.

It's good to see Jan mentioning the CWGC, a website I use often. One
aspect Jan didn't mention is that when one clicks on a name to obtain
more information, in many instances the names of the parents are
stated. This of course can be very useful in identifying a specific
person one is searching for.

Re: Temple Sinai, Brooklyn, 1950s #general

Lynne Schneider
 

Friends,

In response to my request for how to research my Grandfather's
second Bar Mitzvah, I received several explanations and good advice
on how to continue my research.

My thanks to Murray who provided a great article about adult Bar Mitzvah
( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adult_bar_and_bat_mitzvah); and to Judy
Salomon, Janette Silverman and Carol Jaffe for explaining that second
Bar Mitzvahs were not at all uncommon. >from them and others on another
site, I learned that a life span was considered to be 70 years. So, once
a person reached 70 years a new life span was begun and a Bar Mitzvah
would be in order at the age of 83. Terrific!

And another big thank you to Paula Einstein Baker who provided me with
three separate sources where I might be able to find the missing Temple
Sinai congregation. I am happy to share these sources:

Reform, it's possible that their records are in
<http://americanjewisharchives.org/collections/ms0072/>

Conservative, in the archives of the Jewish Theological Seminary.

My grandmother Sara WILK / FINK BESTER / FRIDMAN #galicia

Tamar Weinblum <weinblum@...>
 

Hello

My name is Tamar and I am living in Israel.

My grandmother's surname was Bester and my mother told me that she is
from Myslowice, Poland, but I couldn't find a Bester family there. She
married my grandfather Israel Wilk Fink and they were living in Sanok. She
died about 1923 when my mother was 9 years old and my mother didn't
know to tell me the reason, either where she is buried. I was in Sanok five
years ago and I got birth and death certificates of my family, but not hers.
(I know about a Bester family in Israel that my mother visited and their
ancestors came >from Wonsko???, Poland.)

On the birth certificate of one of Sara's sons was written also the surname
Friedman.

I would like your help to find where my grandmother came from, when
she was born and where she is buried.

I will be very happy to learn more about my grandmother and if you help
me to get any information about the family, please let me know.

One more issue that bothers me is how come that my grandfather (who
lived in Sanok and had a very big family there but I couldn't find the
connection with them) had 2 surnames Wilk and Fink and how I can find
which one was the paternal and which the maternal.

Thank you very much

Tamar WEINBLUM
