Yocehved (daughter of Apta Rebbe) & Kalman (son of Chaim of Chernovitz) #general

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Dear Genners, Yocheved was a daughter of Rabbi Abraham Yehoshua Heschel, 'the Apter
Rebbe, The author of Ohev Yisrael (Lover of Israel), died 1825. Kalman Kalonymus
was a son of Chaim of Chernovtiz, author of "Be'er Ma'im Cha'im". Yocheved and
Kalman got married, and lived in Kishinev. A famous Chasidic story tells that
Kalman started reading external books (turned to Haskala), and the Apta Rebbe got
furious, and made his daughter divorce him. she got married later to Dan Yungerleib
of Radvil. the story goes on telling that Kalman "got back to his senses", after
his father appeared to him in a deam, and even made "alyah". His father Chaim
of Chernovitz died in Tzfat around 1818. I am interested to find any details on
Kalman and Yocheved marriage, and especially any descendants they may had.
Thank you, Yaron Pedhazur Tel-Aviv, Israel

Re: Family Myth Busting #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

Michael Bernet suggests (somewhat humorously no doubt):

I'd rather be unfaithful to the strict rules of genealogy than dismiss
the pride in my family for its honored connections to other proud and
honored families. I don't fib in my family tree, but make sure to include
the names of the illustrious in-laws, and cousins' cousins, who have
risen to fame and distinction. A little of it rubs off on me

Thank you, Michae! Since Jews constitute * 'am ehad * -- "one
people" ( more literally "one family" as the word * 'am* is a
genealogical term originally signifying "husband's brother" -- as it
still does in Arabic) , I shall henceforth happily derive yikhus
from the fact that as a member of the Providence Jewish community, I
have actually rubbed shoulders with Seymour Lederberg -- a Brown
professor and brother of Nobel Laureate Joshua Lederberg.

In my former incarnation as an attorney I also knew Seymour's wife,
the late Justice Victoria Lederberg of the Rhode Island Supreme
Court. Before switching careers in mid-stream in the 1970s, I
frequently argued State's responses to criminal appeals in that Court
-- though that was long before Vicky was elevated to that august
institution. (She, by the way, was an Italian-American.)

My point is that in the Jewish community there are always far fewer
than six degrees of separation, so is we apply Michael's criteria, a
little of everyone else's yikhus can rub off on all of us!

Happy Hanukkah to one and all!

Judith Romney Wegner

MODERATOR NOTE: Any further specifics of the Lederberg family should
be shared privately, but thank you all for the reminders of our
connectedness.

SILVERMAN - Worcester, Massachusetts #lithuania

Alexandra Alznauer <petiealznauer@...>
 

I am looking for information about or any family of Nochem SILVERMAN of
Girkalnis (Girtagole, Girtagoly), Lithuania. He sailed on the S.S.
Rotterdam on June 23rd 1906 and arrived in New York at Ellis Island on July
5, 1906. Nochum was 18 years old and the ship's manifest lists his
occupation as tailor. Nochum was going to his sister, E. Silverman, who was
at 15 Harding Street, Worcester, Massachusetts.

I am trying to piece together the ZILBERMAN family of Girkalnis and link
them to the TATZ and other families of Girkalnis, Raiseiniai and Pasvyntys.
I am the granddaughter of a ZILBERMAN >from Girkalnis. If you are related to
Nochum or Elizabeth we may be cousins.

I have searched for Nochum in WWI Draft lists and various US censuses but
have not found him. He may have changed his first name to something like
Nathan, Nat, Ned, etc.

Re: Rzeszow #galicia

Hi all!

With regard to Rzeszow, I have been researching the Rzeszow records
and I have had a lot of luck. I have the Excel spreadsheets of the
Census for 1765, 1770, 1870, 1890 and 1910, and the birth and death
records on JRI Poland have been extremely helpful, especially using
the Soundex search methods. Marian Rubin has been very helpful, as
she has helped direct me to the resources I so needed.

I do hope you will investigate and feel free to contact me any time.
I am sure there are always more discoveries being made, as Suzan has
said. I have had much success in piecing together the families with
what has been made available thus far. I even found the streets from
the 1910 Census on a modern map, and matching with the house numbers
from 1870 (where street names are not listed), we can one day travel
to their old homes!

Also I know that many records >from Nowy Sacz (Neu Sandez) are now
just starting to be indexed (where my other relatives are from).
It is all very exciting and I am always happy to share any
discoveries with my fellow researchers. Let us find our families!
