BRENNER family from Focsani, Romania #general

Sandra Nutig
 

Hi Genners

I am looking for information about the BRENNER family. My great
grandparents were Shlomo Meir BRENNER 1839-1902, and Fannie LEPESCU
BRENNER 1849-1917, >from Focsani Romania. Their children were Anna,
Clara, Morris, Rebecca, Sally and Pauline. Sally was my grandmother -
she married Sam SAND.

I have been fortunate to have found the granddaughter of Pauline
BRENNER BLUMENFELD through JewishGen Family Finder, but am looking
for descendants of the other children. All of the children
immigrated to America in the early 1900s. If anyone has any
information about this family please contact me.

Thank you

On Ancestry.com the Detained Aliens List is image 81 of 528. (July 8,
1906) The list says that David OSTROWSKY and wife are in Group 17,
passengers #10 & 11. If you go back page by page and look in the upper
right hand corner of each manifest page there is a stamp of a big bold
black number. When you find 17 you are on the correct page.
I found it at Ancestry image 47 of 528.

JGS NY Meeting November 15 - "Three Minutes in Poland" #poland

Harriet Mayer
 

Jewish Genealogical Society NY Meeting Sunday, November 15th at 2 PM
at the Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th St. New York NY

Speaker: Glenn Kurtz
Program: "Three Minutes in Poland"

Glenn Kurtz, author of the the award winning book, "Three Minutes in Poland,"
will speak about his four-year journey to identify the people in the three
minutes of 16mm film that his grandfather shot, while traveling in Europe in
August 1938, only one year before the outbreak of World War II.

More than seventy years later, through the brutal twists of history, these
few minutes of home movie footage, capturing ordinary life in a small,
predominantly Jewish town in Poland, would become a memorial to an entire
community and culture annihilated in the Holocaust.

Glenn Kurtz's essays have appeared in the New York Times, Salon and
Southwest Review. A graduate of Tufts University and the New England
Conservatory of Music, he hold a PhD >from Stanford University in
comparative literature and has taught at Stanford, San Francisco State
University, and New York University.

In addition, at 12:30 in the Kovno Room: Bring your lunch and meet with
fellow JGS members and experts in an informal setting to share research
stories and ask questions.

The Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute at CJH will be open
starting at 11 AM.

Free for members; guests welcome, $5 at the door.

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear researchers,

I am working now on a KehilaLink website for town of Tarutino, Bessarabia,
now in Akkerman district, Odessa Oblast of Ukraine.

The town has an interesting history. It first was established as German
colony in 1814, and Jews were allowed there at the last part of 19c, and it
had almost 2000 Jews in 1897. I found some information already, including
an old map with Jewish Cemetery right in center of Town.

The other town's name was Antchikrok or Anchiocrac.

If you have any photos, old and new of the town, Family stories - I know
that there are a number of families related to that town, Family trees,
Travel stories, old maps, etc. please let me know.

I am looking forward to hear >from you.

Seeking information about Isidor(e) RUBINSTEIN #general

Barbara Musikar
 

Isidor RUBINSTEIN married my father's cousin, Mollie PADWA, in Minneapolis,
MN on June 22, 1913. She had probably met him in New York and joined him in
Minneapolis. I was told that Isidor worked for the railroad, but I have no
idea which railroad employed him. I also looked on the Railroad Retirement
Indexes, but did not locate his record.

Mollie and Isidor had a son named David. Supposedly Mollie died in 1918 of
influenza. I have tried to find Isidor and David on the census in
Minneapolis, but was unable to do so. I also looked in New York, but there
were too many people with his name. I was told that Isidor did not keep in
touch with Mollie's family after her death.

Looking for Samuel Wolf PADWA and his wife Rosa in Berlin 1900-1938 #general

Barbara Musikar
 

I am looking for information about my father's first cousin, Samuel Wolf
PADWA and his wife Rosa.

Samuel was born in Zascinose, then in Galicia, in Nov, 1884. Unlike his
younger siblings who emigrated to the U. S. he emigrated to Berlin,
Germany where he owned a few confectionery shops. One of these shops
was on Markgrafenstr and another was on Potsdamerstr. His name or the
names of other family members appear in the Berlin Address Book >from
1916 to 1939.

I was told many years ago that he remained in Berlin and went into
hiding. I do not know what happened to his wife or child(ren). I was
told that he later perished. I was wondering if he married Rosa in
Berlin and whether his name appears on the police lists that were kept for
new residents.

Re: Seeking help locating BEAVER / BOVARSKY family in 1920 US census - Found! #general

Genners-

With the help of a couple of experts - and using Family Search - the
record was found. The family - with another sister and additional
nephew - is in Chicago in 1920. Apparently in Ancestry, the record
may not be indexed correctly or there is a broken link.

Many thanks to Yehuda bn Shlmo (who also provided how he located the
record) and Johanna Becker for locating the family in the 1920 census
document, as well as Bette for her work locating other family records.

Genners come through again!

Best,

Detained at Ellis Island #general

Myrna Goodman
 

I have discovered that my paternal grandfather David OSTROWSKY and
grandmother were detained at Ellis Island on June 8, 1906 following
their arrival on the SS Columbia. The ship originated in Antwerp.

The notation on the document gives the following information: "s-i-l
Dora BEROLOWSKY with a NYC address: 17 Essex".

I have been unable to find the original manifest of the Columbia to
find additional information about them.

I know that my grandmother was very close to delivering my Aunt Anne
and she was born in NYC on June 17th 1906. I have also been
unsuccessful in finding a record of her birth.

The family emigrated to Chicago and my grandfather changed the family
name to OSOFF on his naturalization application.

I would be most grateful for any assistance in locating more
information about my grandparents.
