The town of Brzesc Kujawski #poland

Amos Israel Zezmer
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

Have any vital records >from Brzesc Kujawski been indexed?

Have any Jewish vital records survived?

According to JewishGen and other sources, there were nearly 800 Jews in
Brzesc Kujawski, in 1921, out of a total population of nearly 4,000.

I am looking for vital records for the MITKIEWICZ family.

Best regards,

JGSMD January 22 program announcement #general

Susan Steeble
 

Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland

Speaker: Israel Pickholtz
Title: "Why Did My Father Know That His Grandfather Had an Uncle Selig?"
Date and Time: Sunday, January 22, 2017, 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pikesville Library'?s meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Rd,
Pikesville, MD

Please join us for our next program: "Why Did My Father Know That His
Grandfather Had an Uncle Selig?" presented by Israel Pickholtz.

More than 20 years before Israel Pickholtz began doing serious
genealogy, his father sent him a postcard with three bits of family
information. One of those was that Israel's great-grandfather Hersch
Pikholz had an uncle Zelig. That information was very important in
Israel's research over the past two decades, research that was helped
along by traditional sources and more recently by genetic genealogy.

But even as he was progressing in his research, Israel could not shake
the question, "Why did my father know this?" Israel says, "My father
was 8 years old when his grandfather Hersch Pikholz died, and they
never had any real conversation. None of the cousins knew about Uncle
Zelig, even the older one who lived in the same house as my
great-grandfather. My father himself did not recall why he knew this."
And did it even matter? Israel tells the story of his
great-great-great-uncle, what he learned about his family, and why now
he thinks he knows how his father knew. And yes, it matters.

Israel Pickholtz, a native of Pittsburgh, made aliyah in 1973 from
Chicago and now lives in Jerusalem. He has done serious family
research for 20 years. His flagship work is the Pikholz Project, a
single-surname project to identify and reconnect all Pikholz
descendants. Alongside his work as a professional genealogist, taking
clients in Israel and abroad, he became heavily involved in genetic
genealogy in 2013. He manages test kits of more than 80 family
members, at last count. He recently published a book, Endogamy: One
Family, One People (available at www.endogamy-one-family.com). He
blogs at http://allmyforeparents.blogspot.com.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
to membership fee when a visitor joins JGSMD) after their first
meeting. Refreshments will be available. Please check our web site at
www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location, and program
of future meetings.

David ABRAMOWITZ and Sarah ABRAMOWITZ - New Haven to Boston 19th Cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My great grandfather came to New Haven, Ct. with his widowed mother
and three siblings (2 brothers and a sister). They came (>from Europe)
around 1870-1880. The four siblings were David, Sarah, Mayer and
Kalman). I have contact with descendants of Mayer and Kalman but over
the years we lost track of Sarah and David.

What is known about David is that he moved to Boston as a teen and
worked in a Dept. Store and seems to have worked up his way to
management. By the mid 1930s he had a winter home in Florida.

Sarah lived (or vacationed) on Coney Island in New York City where my
mother met her grandson, Tom (possibly >from Boston) on the beach in
the 1930s. He connected his grandmother to my grandfather at that
time. Tom immediately disappeared and we have not had any connection
with him or his parents or grandparents since then. I don't know
Sarah's married name.

If the above sounds familiar to anyone I'd be happy to hear >from you.

Looking for information on Reb Dovid'l of Vidzy and family #belarus

Harold Berman
 

I have posted this request previously some years ago, but with the advent of
a new year,
I am hoping that one of the old and or new members would be in a position to
possibly
help with some new information or suggestions.

I am trying to trace the family of my maternal great grandfather Reb Dovid
Sudansky.
He according to family lore was the Rabbi and Rosh Yeshiva of the yeshiva in
VIDZY [WIDZE],
possibly in the mid 1800's.

On page 142 in the Yiskor book of Vidzy there is mention of a Reb Dovid'l
of Widze,
I am presuming that this refers to my great grandfather. I am also trying to
find out
if it actually was my ggfather, and the approximate time frame that this
event took place.

I have been in contact with Eudice Harris who edited the Yiskor book, but
she couldn't
unfortunately offer any information on the matter.

The only other family facts that I am aware of is that my grandmother Paya
was born in
1864, and that she had three other sisters, one of whom Nachama made Aliyah
in the
early 1900's. Of the other two sisters I have no information at all. There
was also a brother
Hershel [TZVI] who made Aliyah in the early 1930's. I have found mention of
a TZVI Sudansky
who passed away in Israel during this period, but I found that there is no
connection to our
family.

Again according to family lore, HERMANN JADLOWKER the chazzan and opera
singer was a cousin.

Any suggestions or assistance would be gratefully appreciated.

Many thanks,
