Shraga Fivel DAN Family #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I am again working on a branch of my family which originated in Valkininkai,
Lithuania.

Originally, Shraga Fivel DAN married Yehudit SEGALOV and had seven children:
Zvi Dov, Rachel (Rasha) GOLDMAN, Harry DUNN, Yehoshua, Hillel Zalman, Simcha
Shmuel, and Jacob DUNN.

These are the things I would like to find:

(1) Zvi Dov's first family may have died in the Shoah. His second wife,
Yehudit, had two children, Ella and Shraga. Ella married a man named OVERBACH
and had a son, Assaf. Shraga married Graziela WEISELBERGER and had two
children, Yogli and Zvi. I think they lived in Gedera but when I attempted
to write them the letter was returned.

(2) Rachel's family died in the Shoah except for the youngest daughter, Dena,
who married Yehoshua EICHORN, and had two children, Yehudit and Asaf. Asaf
is better known as Asaf AGMON. Yehudit married Yitzhak FLUMIN and had two
children.

(3) Yehoshua married a woman named Malka and had one child. Supposedly he
moved to Moscow years ago.

(4) Hillel Zalman married Haya Rachel ELLIS and had two children, Ila and Tova.
Ila had been keeping in touch with our family genealogist years ago. She
lived in Tel Aviv, but I have not been able to get in touch with her. Ila
married Sfania COHEN and had one son, Ron, then later married Ted CASPI. Tova
married Gidon ZIV (formerly FEINITZ) and had two children, Dani and Amalia.

(5) Simcha Shmuel married Chana Rachel ZIMMERMAN and had two children, Ziva
and Ora. Ziva married Avraham WEINFELD and had three children. Ora married
David BAREKET (formerly BORNSTEIN) and had three children, then later married
Gidon MA'OR.

If anyone can give me more infomration, I would appreciate it.

HERSHOVITZ-LURJE Family #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I would like to find information on the family of Borach LURJE and Rachel
(Roskie) HERSHOVITZ. They lived in Raseiniai, Lithuania, and died in the
Shoah along with most of their family.

Borach was married previously and had two sons, Fivel Labe (Pielwa) and
Michael. He had six children with Rachel: Chana DISKANT, Yehoshua
(Heishel), Moshe (Meishel), Sarah YUDELEVSKI, Rivka DAGAN (later LASSAR),
and Gutel (Grisha). All but Sarah, Rivka, and Grisha died in the Shoah,
most of them in 1941 in Raseiniai. Heishel supposedly died "at the front"
in 1943.

The main things I would like to find out are:

(1) Fivel Labe was married to Sonia Cagan of Babryusk in present-day Belarus.
They were married in Harbin, China. They had two children who survived the war.
Ruvinas (Ruben) was born in 1919 in Harbin and immigrated to the United States
with his wife Liza and son Fayva. Braina (Dora) married Leibl POZNER and had a
daughter Sonia, who married a man named MERLIN and had two children, Rina and
David.

(2) Heishel was married to Yentl FISHLEDER of Kedainai, Lithuania. They had a
daughter, Bella, born in 1934 in Raseiniai. Yentl and Bella survived the war.
Later Bella married a man named ZELISOVITZ and had two children.

(3) Moshe was married to Lili MARKS. She supposedly died near the end of the
war in Siauliai, Lithuania.

(4) Rivka was first married to Moshe DAGAN (formerly VOLPE) and had two
daughters, Shifra and Yael. Shifra was born in 1938 and Yael in 1942 in Bat
Yam in pre-state Palestine. Shifra had attended our first family reunion.
I would like to get in touch with her. She used to live in Ashdod, but I
think she lives in Gan Yavne now. She married Israel SAAR and had three
children. Her sister Yael married Ze'ev RAVID and had two children. Later
Rivka married Moshe LASSAR (formerly HARAK).

(5) Grisha married Mina SCHWARTZ of Raseiniai. They had two sons, Baruch,
born in 1944, and Peter (Pettie). They moved to Krefeld, Germany, where
Baruch married a woman named Klara and had two sons, Aron and Georg, and
Pettie married a woman named Rivka and had one daughter, Elina (Lina).

If anyone has any information, I would appreciate it.

Changing of Last Names On Way to England from Russia #general

David Goldman
 

Hi, Jewishgenners.

A third cousin I was corresponding with has made a very interesting suggestion
as to why my great-grandfather (her great-great-grandfather) and his brothers
changed their last names >from Krasinsky in 1890 when they left Nova Ushitza for
Manchester. She said she knew of one of her other relatives who did the same
thing because he was seeking employment or perhaps had been sponsored for
employment >from a German-Jewish factory employer in Manchester, and the relative
understood that a "German-Jewish" sounding last name would work better than a
Russian sounding one in terms of obtaining employment by German Jewish factory
owners.

I had wondered how and why three brothers could emigrate legally >from the
Russian Empire under totally assumed names if they needed visas and passports.
I didn't find this particular novelty among any of my other ancestors, so the
suggestion about employment seems to make eminent sense.
