STIGLITZ & SWERLING Genealogy #general

Jackye Sullins <jsullins@...>
 

I helped a friend in San Diego with her family genealogy years ago. She
gave me a notebook that she'd made with information she'd found. She and
her husband passed away before I could return the book and I could never
find anyone in her family.

I would like to give this book back to the family or at least to someone
researching these two names.

Please contact me off list if you know how to reach the family or would like
to have the notebook.

Simon EPSTEIN, Plawno, Poland #general

Marjorie Geiser
 

Hi all,

This is the first time I've posted on the EML. But first, I wanted to
say that this is an incredible group of people! I've only been
searching for my ancestors for a little over a month - because I'll be
going to Poland next spring, and already the help I've received from
this group is beyond amazing.

As a result, I have found (and will meet in a couple weeks) a first
cousin (1 X removed) I never knew I had, as well as another cousin
(4th) in Brazil. I even now have a letter that was addressed to ME (!)
from a great-aunt, that I had forgotten about.
However, no matter **how** hard I search, and what sites I search on, I'm
hitting a wall.

My great-grandfather's name, when he came to the States, was Simon
Epstein. He was born in 1871 in Plawno, Poland. He married Pearl
Mochedlover/Moczydlower. Three of their eight children were born in
Poland, it appears in Warsaw. They then went to England, and in 1906,
came to the US. He died in 1954 in California.

I found one document that indicated that his mother's name might be
Lea/Leah, or Laja. Thanks to someone else on JewishGen, I have some
**major** descendant reports that **might** be him, with the name Szaja
Epsztejn. The birth date is exactly the same, and it's in Plawno. But,
could that be the name he had before leaving Poland?? And how well
could I trust this information to be on **his** family?

In my research, it appears that in January 1942, the mayor was ordered
to remove the 460 Jews to the ghetto in Radomosko. I found a **lot** of
Epsteins >from Radomosko on Yad Vashem who were murdered. But I don't
know if **this** is why I can't find any information on his family.

However, when I was jumping up and down with excitement, she pointed
out that we needed **some** way to verify this!

The new-found cousin had a photo of Simon's mother, but her own mother
didn't know her name. Apparently, none of the kids liked their
father...

So here's why I'm writing: If **anyone** might have any connection/
information on Simon Epstein/ Szaja Epsztejn, and perhaps
has photos,then if we compare photos, I might be able to find out
exactly who she was, and move back >from there.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide. Even tips of where else to
look would be helpful.

Seeking background information about Szyfra WALDER nee KANNER of Poland #general

Joseph Walder <jswalder@...>
 

I am trying to find any information about the background and ancestry of my
great-grandmother Szyfra/Shifra WALDER nee KANNER. She came to the United
States in 1927, presumably after the death of her husband, Meyer WALDER. An
annotation on the passenger manifest describes her as "senile". I have the
following information about her:

(1) She died in 1940 at age 75, thus her birthdate would have been about
1865. One can infer her mother's birthdate was probably no later than 1845.

(2) The inscription on her headstone gives her father's name as Avraham
Yehoshua HaKohen. In contrast, according to a page in the Antwerp police
dossier of her son Hersz, Szyfra's parents were named Osias and Freida.

(3) Szyfra's place of origin is not known.

(4) A story passed on by one of Szyfra's sons is that she met her husband,
Meyer WALDER, in Warsaw in 1883, where she was supposedly a tutor for two
children. Meyer had been previously married; he first wife died in
childbirth.

(5) Szyfra evidently moved to the Galician town of Narol after marriage.
Few records >from Narol have survived, and none pertinent to my search.

(6) Meyer WALDER may have come >from Lwow; he certainly had a family
background there.

I've done the sort of searches one might expect on JewishGen and Gesher
Galicia but come up with nothing. In particular, I have found nothing
pertinent in searches for Avraham or Osias KANNER.

Any suggestions for how to proceed would be much appreciated.

Shatava Ukraine Jewish Cemetery Project

For those of you that have connection to Shatava Ukraine

Hi, while trying to trace my wif's family who came >from Shatava
Ukraine. I tried to find out if there was a Jewish cemetery in Shatava
I post on some genealogy groups asking the question is there a Jewish
cemetery in Shatava and was told by most people there was not till I
received two replies telling me there was one there and that these
people had photos of it. After hearing about the bad state of the
cemetery I have decided to try to rebuild the Jewish Cemetery of
Shatava digital with photos and documents. Posting the photos that I
get with transcription and translation of the graves. I so far have
collected about 20 photos of the cemetery. Seeing what a bad state it
is in now, I am trying to get old photos of the cemetery, so we might
be able to rebuild it. If you have old photos or new photos of the
cemetery could you please share them with me. Or might anyone be able
to tell me where I might find more photos or documents about the
Jewish cemetery old or new that I could use in my project. Could you
tell where I might look for such documents or photos What books or
organization might have such information? Thank you for your help in
this matter.

Does anyone know of any epidemics that hit the Minsk area around 1900?
My great uncle as a little boy of 3 died. My grandfather reported that in
his insurance papers >from the Canadian Army. I believe it was what we call
childhood illnesses.
Thanks..

1848 Hungarian Jewish census records from Bratislava (Pozsony) district #hungary

davidmdubin@...
 

Hi all,
Where are the 1848 Hungarian "Conscriptio Judaeorum" census records
from the area around Bratislava (called Pozsony in Hungarian)?
The H-SIG web page for the census states these records are not held
with the majority of the census and were not copied by the LDS. It
does state these records are in the Hungarian State Archives and gives
a film number (43504). However, when I contacted the archives, they
stated the records are not there!
The H-SIG page also says these records are "in progress" of being
abstracted. I assume that means someone has access to them & knows
where they are.
Please, HELP! I have ancestors trapped in those records.
Thank you.

Dear Siggers,

I am wondering what could the reason for a persons late marriage.

My grandfather b. 1873 married his first wife in 1903 (i.e. he was 30
years of age). He was the youngest of eight children in a well to do
family. His father (my great-grandfather) was a land owner and one of
the community leaders.

Jewish men, usually married at 18 or 21. I am puzzled by why he only
married so late. There were no wars during this time, he did not
travel to other countries or the USA, the family was well-to-do, and
distinguished.

I know that an older brother and older sister passed away from
"psychosis" which I suspect is a politically-correct alternative to
suicide. That may have decreased his "attractiveness" as a suitable
groom.
