Marilyn Robinson
 

In the event of a divorce of Jewish parents:
--who did the children generally continue to reside with in the early
1900's, Tarnow?
--Did children have a choice?
-- Did it depend on the sex of the child?
--Did it depend on a child's age?
--Did religion play a role in the choice of the custodial parent?
-- Were there any standard limitations set by a father on where his
former wife and their children could move to or live without his

JRI Poland #Poland UNTERBERGER>BALSAM>ZEGER>WIESER Connections & legalities #poland

Marilyn Robinson
 

I had recently found a 1937 legal notice in the Brooklyn Eagle, listing
the unknown (to me) names of family members, mentioned in a great aunt's
will >from 1933. Through the wonderful efforts of one of our own, Allen
Jordan, records of the will were found in Kings County Surrogates Court,
Brooklyn, NY. The case was open until--amazingly--- 1968!

1.If the case remained open during and following World War II,
would that mean the family survived the war or simply that they had not
yet been found?
2. Who would be entitled to that money if that branch of the
family was never located?
3. Does anyone have any additional information about the
following individuals (but, especially >from 1938 on):

Tobias Gutman UNTERBERGER-b. 1876 (father was Mendel Unterberger (not
Chaim), mother Beile (possibly Gutman)
His three (3) wives+children with each:

1. Beila Ruchla WIESER (divorced her)
Children: Izak Weiser Unterberger (aka Shmuel Itzak or Isaac) (b.
1903)lived in Krakow in the 1930s

Naftali Hirsh Weiser Unterberger (b. about 1907)

2. Frejda BALSAM (died about 1927)(Tarnow??)
Children: Mendel Balsam Unterberger (b. about 1903; aka Mendel Yosel,
and Joseph) lived in Tarnow/Pogwizdow, Barak 7 (about 1937)

Rechel Balsam Unterberger (b. 1917; aka Rosa
Unterberger)---lived in Tarnow in 1930s

JRI Poland #Poland Searching for Shoah Survivor Estera ROTENBERG #poland

Ann Linder
 

A year ago I posted this message and I am reposting in the hope that
someone might recognize and make a connection.

Last Rosh Hashana, I learned via the Polish Red Cross and ITS that a
first cousin of my mother survived the war.

We thought all ROTENBERG family members were slaughtered until my
research revealed that Estera ROTENBERG survived.
Estera ROTENBERG, born 1926 in Stopnice Poland was one of 8 brothers
and sisters. Her mother was Bajla Rivka (my mother's Aunt), her
father was Aron Lejba
(aka Munysz). At some point Estera was living in Gliwice, Poland on
Zabrowska Street. Thereafter, the Polish Red Cross has documentation
that she registered with the Central Committee in Warsaw in 1957. She
may have indeed stayed in Poland or made aliyah to Israel, or
emigrated to USA or England (there were cousins in England) or in fact
anywhere else for that matter--I can only guess.

It is possible she is still living, altho she would be almost 90
years of age, and I would very much like to attempt to locate her. My
mother is close to 90 & it would be a Major event for her to locate a
1st cousin! Can anyone help w/this search? It is obviously more
difficult to find female relatives as names change with marriage. It
is possible that Estera was raised in an observant home and continued
to be observant/Orthodox. Search methods would also be most welcome.
Thanks a
million.

JRI Poland #Poland Jablonna detention camp #poland

Ariel K <arielvfu@...>
 

Jablonna detention camp was established in Poland in 1920 for Jewish
soldiers who served in the Polish-Soviet war who were suspected in
"collaborating" with the Soviets (the real reason was prejudice among
the high ranked personnel)

there were thousands of Jewish prisoners held there till the camp
liquidation

Do you know where is it possible to find the names of the people sent
there (besides the Polish military archive is currently closed till
the end of 2014)

kind regards
