SKLAR SCLAR family Worcester Mass #lithuania

Vivian Levensohn <vivian@...>
 

After receiving no responses to my posting on the Family Finder, I am
appealing to the discussion groups about my SCLAR SKLAR family from
Worcester, Massachusetts. Perhaps you know this family &#8211; >from Temple,
from growing up with one of them, professionally - and could put them in
touch with me.

In the early 1900&#8217;s the family seemed to use the names SCLAR and SKLAR
interchangeably; I think they settled on &#8220;SCLAR,&#8221; so I&#8217;ll use that name
here.

Morris SCLAR was born about 1886 in the Vilnius area of Lithuania,
probably Moletai. He was a tailor. He arrived in the US in about 1907.
By 1910 he was living in Worcester, with his wife, Ida.

Their nine children, with approximate birth dates, were:

--- Harry 1909
--- Bessie 1911
--- Benjamin 1913 (died at age 20)
--- Annie 1914
--- Jennie 1916
--- Hyman 1918
--- Fannie 1919
--- Abraham 1921
--- Esther 1923

Between 1910 and 1930, at least, the family lived at 16 Brown Street in
Worcester.

My relationship to this family: Morris was the older brother of my
grandfather, Alex SKLAROFF. Alex (who may have been also known as
Nathan), also a tailor, came to the US in 1914 and went to live with
Morris and his family.

Some sort of falling out occurred. Alex left, settled in Cincinnati, and,
as far as I know, never had any further contact with his brother, Morris.

Morris had another brother, Abraham SKLAR, who also first came to
Worcester but, by 1920, was living in Philadelphia. Abe SKLAR was a
furrier with two daughters, Sylvia (who changed her name to Vivien) and
Esther. I also do not know what became of this family; the last contact I
know of between them and my branch of the family was in the 1950&#8217;s.

HAMMER and STREISAND from Narayev - old family photos #galicia

Paul Gordon <flash@...>
 

I've posted a number of old family photos on my web site, and I'm asking for
help in identifying some of the people in them.

One set of photos is of family members related to my great-grandparents, Sam
HAMMER and Perel STREISAND, who were born in Narayev in the early 1880s.
They were married in New York around 1902.

Sam was the son of David HAMMER and Pesia GOLDWURM. Perel was the daughter
of Osias STREISAND and Brajna SELINGER.

Related families >from Narayev were named STAHL, SCHWAGER, HELFER, and
SCHULMAN.

Please take a look at these photos at www.zzapp.org/flash/family/galicia.
If you recognize anyone, please contact me.

And to see photos >from other branches of my family, go to
www.zzapp.org/flash/family.

Thanks.

Kozienice Holocaust list--volunteers needed #galicia

Joyce Field
 

Volunteers are needed to computerize two important lists >from
Kozienice which we acquired >from the United States Holocaust Memorial
Museum. The computerized lists will be part of the Holocaust
Database and also be searchable >from the All Poland Database.

There are two lists which need inputting into Excel spreadsheets >from
jpegs, which are quite legible.
One list is a relatively legible handwritten census of the Jews in
the ghetto, about 4200+ records. A second part includes birth and
other data, mostly typewritten. We would really like a native Polish
speaker especially for the proofreading.

Volunteers should have a recent copy of Excel on their computers, be
able to input >from jpeg images, and be familiar with European
handwriting. If you would like to be part of a team working on this
and other Holocaust files, please contact Nolan Altman, Holocaust
Database coordinator, at naltman@jewishgen.org.

Is by any coincidence this Sonnenschein family related to the film of 3 or 4
yrs ago, about the Hungarian Sonnenschein family? (Sunshine)

Re: Name Betreas = Erzebet #hungary

BruceKitty@...
 

Elizabeth can be derivation of ERZABET, also the last syllable can provide
Betreas (which in English is spelled as Beatrice).. it is difficult to
determine what triggers many
name changes. One of the plausible possibilities is an attempt at
americanizing, another
could have occurred at time of arrival processing where the clerk was stumped
with
"Erzebet or ERZABET: due to possible language differences and communication
between
the Port of entry Clerk who spoke only English, and Erzabet who spoke only
Hungarian..
He may have dubbed her Betreas. Another possibility, could Betreas have
been her
middle name which she preferred to use. Someone may have said to her, "you
look more like a Betreas" and so liked this name...Could Betreas be a
different person >from Erzabet?
It is interesting to ponder what life forces impact on individuals that
decades later
confound descendants. Logic is often difficult to fathom in information that
is gotten in fragments and word of mouth.
Possibly, in your searches of documents you may one day come across
notations or
papers that will explain.
Good luck in your search,
Kitty Sauber

Re: labour batallion camps #hungary

Patricia J Weisshaus <patjw28@...>
 

Andrew:

The note I have in my records is the following:

Sandor's death is recorded as 17 September 1942 and comes >from the book,
NAMES OF JEWISH VICTIMS OF HUNGARIAN LABOR BATTALIONS, LETTERS K-Z, Vol. 2,
Page 709:

"Weiszhaus, Sandor Berger, Irma (mother's maiden name) 00/05/12 Budapest
(birth date) Beteg (disposition - sick)

42/09/17 (date of record) 44119 (ID number)".

The date is correct, according to the records found at the District VII
Municipal Archives in Budapest..

That's the only information we have, except that a Hungarian soldier came
to their apartment to tell my husand's mother the news and to give her a
ring which her husband always wore. I don't have the date on which this
occurred, but my husand remembers the visit by the soldier.

A cousin that he had not talked to for 55 years who was found in Australia,
related this story to him a few days ago. I don't know where she heard it,
and that's the reason for my question to the list.

Pat
:

About Pat's message, I have not heard that story, but my father also died of
typhoid fever in the Ukraine. It was not at Kharkov, where he was sent
earlier, but after the Voronezh debacle he walked back to Kiev and got
himself into an army hospital, that's where he died. Are you sure, though,
that the event you describe happened in 1942? For the situation was falling
apart for the Hungarian army a year later, the typhoid epidemic reached its
apex in 1943, that's when my father died, in April.

I will be sending throw-away cameras to Hungary to photograph tombstones. I want to know which would be better...black and white film or color film?
