Shlomo of Salomon Finkelman from Buczacz #general

Lubov Pilko <lubapg@...>
 

I'm looking for Shlomo Finkelman, who lived before the war and during the war in
Buchach. I known that Shlomo Finkelman after the war repatriated to Israel with his
new wife. In Israel, he had two sons. I'm looking for them.

Isaac NATHAN. b Canterbury, Professor of Music, Sydney #general

Suzie Woodward <vestlaybanks@...>
 

I do not know whether or not this email will get on the right forum...but am
hoping someone can help. I am doing some research for a friend whose 3x great-
grandfather was Isaac NATHAN. Isaac was reputedly born in Canterbury around 1790
but I can find no proof of that. His father is seen named as Menahem Mona/Monash
and his mother Mary/Mariana Lewis, sometimes also referred to as Mrs Goldsmith!
Again I have no proof.(Why doesn't Isaac's father have the surname NATHAN???)

I believe Isaac married twice:
First marriage. 16 Jul 1812. Isaac married Rosetta Elizabeth Worthington at
St Mary Abbots Church, Kensington. I have a copy of that parish register entry.
Second marriage: 3 Oct 1826. Isaac married Henrietta BUCKLEY (1806-1898) at
the same church as above. I have no proof.

Information obtained >from various sites on the Internet states that Isaac's
first wife converted to Judaism and a Jewish Ceremony also took place for
this wedding at the Western Synagogue, London. Isaac's second wife,
apparently, did not convert to Judaism and did not sign the Jewish marriage
contract; nevertheless that ceremony apparently took place in the Canterbury
Synagogue?

Isaac's first wife died young apparently at Nelson Street, London and is
said to be buried in Brompton Cemetery. I have no proof of that either!
I know of at least one child of that marriage (Caroline Louisa NATHAN b
about 1817) but understand there were more.

Isaac remarried, and in 1841 he and his family emigrated to Australia where
he eventually carved out a career and was revered as Professor of Music at
Sydney University. He died in 1864 and I have found details of his tragic
death when he was dragged underneath a slowly moving tram.

The majority of the above information was gleaned >from the Internet with one
or two exceptions. I have no proof, and as a researcher, I feel that is
essential. So can anyone help me...

Where were Isaac's 2 Jewish weddings held? Are here any records? Who were Isaac's
children of his first wife? Where is her death record? Who were Rosetta's parents?
Some say she was born in Ireland? Who were Henrietta BUCKLEY's parents?

Can anyone please help or point me in the right direction. I have scoured
the JewishGen website but very little comes up except Isaac is listed in the
Pre-1850s Jewish database as a musician and a reference TJHSE 1816. What
does this mean?

Many thanks and sorry this has seemed so long.
Regards
Suzie Woodward (residing in Orkney)

Visit to Bauska and towns in Lithuania #courland #latvia

Robin Aaronson <grandvizier51@...>
 

Last summer, my brother and I visited Bauska in Latvia, where my
grandfather was born. We also went to Linkuva, the shtetl where our
ancestors lived for many generations, Pakruojis and Joniskis.

I have written an account of this journey, which may be of interest to
those with connections to any of these places, or the area more
generally. Much of it is personal, but it also describes how these
towns look today and what sense of a Jewish past one can gain there.

If anyone would like to see this account, please contact me and I will
be delighted to send it to you.

Porosko, Turya Bystra, Turya Polyana #subcarpathia

Joel Weber <beechtreeimages@...>
 

For almost a half century prior to 1945 I had a number of Weinberger
relatives who resided in Ungvar (Uzhhorod) and Porosko (Poroskovo). In
1945 one of my relatives, an Auschwitz survivor, married Gabriel Mermall
(as he was known in the United States) who was born in Turrya Bystra
and who resided in Porosko while working in Ungvar. =46rom April 1944
until the Red Army captured Turya Polyana Gabried Mermall and his six
year old son were hidden and fed by a Rusyn lumberjack Ivan Gartner,
the former mayor of Turya Polyana. I am trying to develop as much
information as I can about Mermall, Gartner and their circumstances.
For example, I know that there was a narrow gauge railroad >from Turya
Polyana which used to supply wood to a factory in Turn Bystra that was
established in 1889. I am looking for any information in English about
Poroshkov, Turya Polyana or Turya Bistra during the half century or so
before 1946, but most especially during 1944. Any assistance that you
could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you again.

presentations are encouraged to be proposed in this Call for Papers.

for them are received.

History of Polish Jews and by the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical
Institute of Warsaw, which may each provide speakers on topics closely
related to their respective institutions.

a proposed database that, through a grant >from Henry Louis Gates, would be
made available in the near future and would contain records >from Ms. Lipes'
collection. I thought I heard that an announcement would be made by the end
of the summer, but I haven't seen any announcements on the discussion

schedule?

Harcsar-Lucska Help Please #hungary

aross2@...
 

I?m trying to enter the various Hungarian birth cities of the siblings of my
great grandfather, Ignatz Goldhammer, in the family finder section of
Jewishgen in the hopes of making some new connections.

My great grandfather was born in Kotterbach which I found as Spisska Nova
Ves (Slovakia)
His older brother was born in Georgenberg which I realize is Spisska Sobota
(Slovakia)

His younger sister ? born in Harcsar-Lucska ? has me stumped. I found a
reference in jewishgen to the 1869 Saros Census films that gives Lucka as an
alternative name for the town and I?ve found some more recent references
that also point to Lucka. However, when I put that name in the family
finder index it shows up as Lucka in the Roznava district which doesn?t seem
to be correct. The one I want seems to be in the Presov district. I seem to
have hit a wall on this. Any suggestions to get me on the right path would
be most appreciated.
