Dear JewishGen Community,

On #GivingTuesday, November 27, 2018, donations to JewishGen.org will
be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $15,000, thanks to generous
support >from E. Randol Schoenberg (well known to the JewishGen
community), and an anonymous supporter.

This means that if JewishGen can raise $15,000 on #GivingTuesday, we
will have effectively raised $30,000!

Please help us reach our goal so we can benefit >from our benefactor's
generosity!
Here is the link to easily donate: https://tinyurl.com/JewishGen1127
or https://jewishgen.app.thechesedfund.com/givingtuesday2018-5779

Your contributions of any amount will make a difference, and help us
continue to expand existing services, and develop new capabilities.

As we are less than a week before Chanukah, a time when we kindle
lights of hope, I thank you in advance for being a valued partner in
JewishGen's important mission, and for helping us achieve our ultimate
goal of "preserving our history for future generations."

We could not do this without you.

Helen Singer <hsinger.t21@...>
 

Dear members

Apologies for cross-posting; this is my first try at using ViewMate.

I would be really grateful for your help with the following documents on
ViewMate at the following addresses:

I don't need a translation, just a transcription; I understand German but
cannot decipher it in these documents.

The documents are
a 2 page "Lebenslauf" >from my grandfather Willy Cohn - this seems to be
partly in gothic German.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM70372
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM70373

the last known postcard >from my great uncle Max Singer - this is difficult
to read. It refers to my grandparents Alex and Anne, who had joined my
father Peter in Farnham, and aunt Suse who married and emigrated to Brazil:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM70374

Please so submit any answers via the form on the ViewMate image page.

Thank you very much in advance.

Yitzchak LAZAROV-London/Jerusalem-late 19th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Searching for information regarding Yitzchak LAZAROV (spelling approx.) who
came to live in Jerusalem in his later years and died there. He had 12
children with his first wife (or wives). He seems to have been financially
wealthy and was ultra-orthodox.

According to a possible source he married (as a widow or divorcee) my great
grandmother in Jerusalem probably sometime around the turn of the century (19-20th).

ViewMate: Translate marriage record from Polish #general

David Ellis
 

I'm looking for a complete translation >from the original Polish of the 1825
marriage record of my ancestors Perla and Nuchym SZTOKBAND in Warsaw.

There are several specific questions I'm trying to deal with. Does the
record show Perla's maiden name? Is Nuchym's mother Witla listed with a
maiden name or patronymic? Is it Michal or Mechal? There appears to be a
discrepancy regarding Perla's mother's name between this record (Hinda) and
Perla's 1881 death record (Nacha), which is also on ViewMate, posting
#37772. How can this discrepancy be resolved?

The record is posted on ViewMate:
https://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=70402

Help is very much appreciated!

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

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; the 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.

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.
