Our memories of Phyllis Kramer z"l #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

The JRI-Poland family is saddened in learning of the passing of
Phyllis Kramer z"l, a long-time friend of and volunteer for our
organization.

Others have rightly lauded her devotion to Jewish family history
and genealogy, and her efforts to help on many levels. Phyllis
truly set a high mark and left a legacy that we might all try
to emulate in one way or another, to the best of our ability.

On a personal level, I have been a witness to Phyllis' passion,
intelligence and bottomless commitment for and to the Jewish
genealogical world, serving with her on an advisory board, working
on a few of her educational projects and, of course, as a
JRI-Poland town leader. I will miss the sparkle in her eyes and
those warm hugs at the annual conferences.

May the memory of Phyllis be for a blessing.

Executive Director,

Locating MALEK birth records from Sighet #romania

Kfir Ovadia <kfir.ovadia@...>
 

Hello,
My great grandfather and his siblings were born in Sighet during 1900-1910.
I was able to find several of the siblings but not all,on Maramaros project
page <https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Hungary/Maramaros.htm>. I saw that
the book that should hold their birth records has been indexed:
(Register Book #282-A ).But I can't find my great grandfather or his siblings.
Any thoughts?

I also tried searching with parents names.
Father: Izsak/issac FISCHLER (sometimes was misspelled as FISCHER)
Mother: Yda/Ida MALEK
Probably it was illegal marriage as all their children got the
mother's surname, MALEK.

looking for records of:
Lazar MALEK - born 26th of June 1902
Ghizella MALEK - 28th of Dec.1900
Blanka MALEK ~1898-1906
Regina/Reghina MALEK ~1901

Saw on JewishGen the records for; Herman Moshe, Mano Mandel,
Chaya Blanka and Avarham Haim.

Thanks.

Rabbi Kalonymous Kalman Klausner of Krakow #rabbinic

Brian Blitz
 

If anyone has any information about Rabbi Kalonymous Kalman Klausner
of Krakow, specifically who he was and what community he served, I
would appreciate if you could pass that along. Klausner may have been
in Krakow in the 1920s/30s and may have been a Bobovar hasid.

My great-great uncle, Nuchem Salz, may have been his assistant in
Krakow before the war, perhaps in the 20s and 30s. Nuchem's tombstone
states that he served Rabbi Klausner. Nuchem was a Bobovar Hasid, so
Klausner could have also been Bobovar.

Any leads would be most appreciated. Thank you.

Finding A Survivor Listed in the Names and Fates Project #latvia

Barnaby Levin <bl487@...>
 

Dear Latvia SIG,

I am writing to ask for advice and help to find information regarding
my grandfather's cousin, Vladimir Luntz, who lived in Riga before the
war with his mother Anna Luntz (born Anna Lewin), and his grandmother
Hinda Lewin (my great-great-grandmother).

I recently discovered an entry for Vladimir in the Latvian Names and
Fates Project: http://names.lu.lv/cgi-bin/one?lang=en&code=421316065979
The entry says that he fled >from Riga into the USSR during the war,
and survived.

My family and I would desperately like to find out what happened to
Vladimir after the war.

Can anybody in the SIG offer help or advice for my search?

Thank you for any help you can give.

Barnaby Levin
