Surname RACHMALES #general

lkern@...
 

My greatgrandparents were >from Berdichev. Their surname was Rachmales.
Later, relatives changed it to Rackmales. I have never heard
this name except in relation to my family who later
emigrated to Baltimore. I have looked in Bieder's book on
Russian names & he states it was >from Ehrachmales.
Can anyone tell me about the name? I thought it might
have come >from Rachmelis. Has anyone every met or heard
of another with this surname?
You can answer me privately at
lkern@adelphia.net if you'd like.

Still Searching for Epsteins #unitedkingdom

GSEaston@...
 

I am still searching for my ancestor, Zolnick? Epstein of Liverpool, son of Jacob
and Florence Friedel and brother of Samuel, Morris, Dora, and a few others.
Samuel and others ended up in Chicago, Illinois. Zolnick stayed in Liverpool.
He was probably born around 1870.
Anyone?

R' Yitzchak Yaakov of Granow and Chana #rabbinic

Nachum Tuchman <nachum@...>
 

Dear List,

R' Yitzchak Yaakov of Granow was the son of R' Mordechai of
Kremnitz, son of R' Yechiel Michel of Zlotchow. He was married to
Chana Yetta/Ita/Vita, sister of R' Yisrael of Ruzhin, great grand
daughter of R' Dov Ber, the Maggid of Mezeritch.

Does anyone know:

1) When they were born? I have listed that he died in 1853.
2) What their last name was?
3) Did he write any books, and what the names were?
4) Who their descendants were? I have listed them. Sons:
R' Yoseph and R' Shalom.
Daughters:
Gizela, Gitel, a daughter who married R' Yoseph, grandson of
R' David of Stefan,
a daughter who married R' Shlomo of Granow, a grandson of
R' Gedalia of Linitz. This daughter had a daughter
Miriam Sarah who married R' Mordechai Goldman, the third
Zvhiller Rebbe, for which there is information on further
generations.

I also have some information on the descendants of Gitel, but
nothing for any of their other children.

I have seen the books 'Teufot Harim' on the Maggid of Zlotchow,
'Hachasidut Midor Lidor', 'The Unbroken Chain,' plus others. There
is precious little information past their children.

I am especially interested in finding if they had descendants with
the names ASPIS or KLARMAN.

Thanks

Many, many thanks for the note on the article on Korolowka. As the
grand-daughterdescendant of a Dodyk, and with at least one family member who
had hidden in the caves, I was touched beyond words. For anyone interested
in this, go to Adventure Magazine where the article is online.

Call for nominations #latvia

martha <martha@...>
 

Shalom chaverim!

At the Jewish Genealogy Conference in Jerusalem in July, we will hold
elections of officers for the next year. The Latvia SIG invites
nominations for the positions of Treasurer and President for the
coming year. Please provide full names, background and email address
of the persons you wish to nominate. You can also nominate yourself.
What we need are people who will be active and innovative.

We also urgently need a group of people to volunteer who can work on
Bylaws for the SIG. It has come to my attention that we do not have
any! Please get in touch with me or with Mike Getz <mgetz@erols.com>
as soon as you possibly can, because we should vote on the Bylaws at
our annual meeting in Jerusalem!

And speaking of Jerusalem, you will be happy to learn that the SIG
has been honoured by Professor Dov Levin's accepting our invitation
to join us for the SIG luncheon. Professor Levin, in case you have
forgotten, is the editor of the Pinkas Hakehillot Latvia v'Estonia,
published by Yad Vashem. He is looking forward to sharing his
knowledge with you and having you share your experiences with him.

We only have 40 days before the conference!

Re: request AND REPLYS #general

David Edelman <pappapeach@...>
 

Dear Group and Moderators;

I think what Jackie is referring to, as I have seen this myself, is if it
the kind of question with a "reply privately", then the moderator never sees
the reply, only the person who posted the original question.
Even if we have been working on genealogy for many years, it is hard to be
an expert in the whole thing, if you are doing this only part time,
occasionally, and things do change all the time - both technology and what
is or is not available. It is the "private" replies where some people can
get rather nasty, and the moderators have no control over.

On the other hand, most Genner have gone out of their way to be more then
helpful. I guess that with a group of this size, there will just be a few
bad apples.

In a death record >from Krakow, 1904, the reason of death is stated as
"dusznia piersiowa". Can anyone help with translating this medical term?
Is it "angina pectoris", is it a kind of infection of the loungs?
Thank you!
