The town of Kasnatz #general

Gasimoda
 

Hello JewishGeners,

According to the book Die Judenschaft von Camberg, written by Dr Peter Karl
Schmidt, a Löw/Löb/Landau family came to Camberg >from Kasnatz in Russian Poland.
But I can not find Kasnatz anywhere. Can I get help with the name/location of this
Shtetl?
Thanks in advance

Best regards

Joseph Levin, paris #lithuania

Tamar Dothan <dothan-t@...>
 

I am looking for any kind of information about Joseph Levin or his
descendents. Joseph was born in Lithuania, most probably in Kedainiai
[Keidan], son of Ya'acov Levin. His father's family was originally >from
Baisogala. He immigrated to Paris, France, were he was a meteorologist,
maybe a professor of meteorology. In 1921 he published a book about
the weather in Paris "Atlas meteorologique de Paris", published by
Gauthier-Villars in 1921 in Paris. His title as written in
the book was ""aide meteorologiste de premiere classe a la section des
recherche scientifiques de l'office national meteorologique". I have
been unable to locate any other information about him, including in the
French deportation list recently published.

Tamar Dothan, Jerusalem
Looking for: >from Lithuania - Sroelov, Smilg, Levin, Edelman;

from Ukraine - Lerner, Lutzky, Lissin.

Weissbrod from Tomaszow Lubelski #poland

Beverley Davis
 

Having looked through the JRI-Poland and JewishGen databases with no
luck, I am hoping that someone might be able to help me with my research
into Avigdor Weissbrod (born ca 1866; died after 1926 possibly in Haifa),
his first wife Beila (possibly Lieberman), and their children: Esther,
Leah, Minche (?? male or female), Tobiasz/Tuvye (born ca 1898, who went
to "Palestine", returned to Poland, and was killed by Nazis in 1942).
Avigdor married a second time, to Rose (surname unknown), and had a son,
and a daughter born ca 1911.

I have been very successful in researching the families of two other
siblings, Henoch (Israel) and also Jacob (Israel and Australia ) (the
latter being my daughter-in-law's grandfather).

Of course, the family name has a number of different spellings -
Weisbrod, Vaysbrod, Wajsbrod/t ...

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Please respond privately with family information.
Suggestions for research methods or resources may be shared with
the list.

Re: Los Angeles marriage query #general

Diana da Costa
 

A huge "thank-you" to all those who responded to our request for information
on the Sinai Synagogue in Los Angeles together with the officiating Rabbi,
Rabbi Dr. Rudolph FARBER, at the marriage of my husband's grandparents in
1913. Most of the responses were emailed to us privately and I thought a
summary of the findings might be helpful to others researching Sinai
Synagogue and/or Rabbi Farber:

Sinai Temple in Los Angeles was founded in 1906, a Conservative Synagogue,
and was then located at 12th and Valencia Street but in 1961 it moved to
Westwood. It is now one of the largest congregations in Los Angeles. The
original buildings now house a multi-cultural centre, the Pico Union
Project, where religious services are also held. At the outset, the
congregation operated >from a number of different locations. Rabbi Dr.
Rudolph Farber joined the congregation around 1913, succeeding Rabbi Isadore
Myers who had been the Congregation's first Minister, but Rabbi Farber only
stayed for three years, leaving on the grounds of ill-health.

Rabbi Farber was born 5th April 1865 in Hungary and emigrated to the US in
1883. He seemed to have had a variety of positions over the years, in 1898
he had been appointed Rabbi to the Temple Israel in Stockton California and
subsequently lived in Denver Colorado, des Moines Iowa, Texarkana Arkansas
and died on 11th August 1930 in Chicago. Rabbi Farber married for the
second time, Etta Crocker, on the 10th of March 1896 in Spokane Washington,
and they had five children.

We also received lots of links. If anyone would like to receive the list,
please email me privately.

Individual emails have been sent to all private messages hitherto received.
With renewed thanks once again,

Re: My Grandparents Town #general

Joy Kestenbaum
 

As a follow up to Joyce Weiss's email of 25 July about her grandparents town of
Krevye Ozero - Krevozer - now in the Ukraine -and her questions about whether there
are lists, so that she can trace relatives, I can add that YIVO Institute for
Jewish Research at the Center for Jewish History in New York has landsmanschaft
records: Krivozer Fraternal Society of Greater New York, 1927-1961, which include
minutes, 1933-1947, an anniversary journal and other records.(There were affiliated
societies in other cities, including Philadelphia.) While I have not reviewed these
records, Additionally, Krivozer Fraternal Society has a plot in (Old) Montefiore
Cemetery in Spring Gardens, Queens and the cemetery has an online database. I have
visited this plot for a client who has family buried there. We were able to
determine that his paternal grandfather and his extended family came >from Kryve
Ozero through ship manifests, which gave it as their place of birth and/or last
permanent residence.

GROSSMAN, Riga #latvia

Elaine King
 

My mother always said that my father's family came here >from Riga, and
that they were Prussian Jews. When I look at historical records, such as
the census from1900, they are listed as coming >from either Lithuania or
Russia. I know that Riga at various times was part of each, but I would
like to know if her information is accurate, and how to find out more
about his family. My father's name was Nathan GROSSMAN; his parents were
Ella and Joseph Grossman. That's as far back as I have been able to go.
I have emailed with someone in Riga, who says there are no records of
their being members of a synagogue, but I would guess they would have
belonged to an Orthodox one if they did, and it one existed. Any help
would be appreciated. Thank you.
