Re: JGS Group's books -- where to house #general

Avrum Lapin <avrum113@...>
 

Reading the posting about the display at the Museum of
Tolerance and the Oprah Show made me think of our own local
JGS group's problem in finding a home for our collection of
reference books, which has outgrown the part of the room we
are allowed to use in a local Jewish nursing home, and which
the nursing home has filled with their training equipment.
There is a new Jewish museum proposed locally (Cleveland),
but attempts to contact the donor have been unanswered.
Can anyone suggest any means or foundation that they
have used to preserve a collection of genealogy materials?
I say "preserve" because we don't want to give the
collection to a synagogue nor public library to be swallowed
up in their general collection.
Thanks,
Cynthia Spikel
Some large libraries have facilities to house "special" collections
separately. This may require a lawyer to draw up the agreement.

I am not sure of the exact arrangement but the Pomona (CA) Public
Library houses a genealogical collection donated by a local
Genealogical Society (I think they did German genealogy) on a set of
shelves located in their Special Collections room which is open and
staffed only during certian hours and days.

Hi,

In 1912 one of my ancestors wrote that she was >from "Poltisk" - though
I'm not sure where that was. Intriguing.

Re: connection between names Isaac and Sholom? #general

Ramon Pop <ramon@...>
 

Hello Howie,

Maybe I'm thinking to easy, but the first thing that comes up in my mind is
that the father of his grandfather was called Itzhak. It means .....(name)
the son of Itzhak. For example my name is Ramon, my father's Leopold (my
father's Jewish name is Arje, mine I don't know, haha) so it's Ramon ben
Arje. I hope you understand...

Greetings,

Ramon Pop

Hi there,

My cousin's husband asked me to translate the matzevot of his
grandparents. I read one of his grandfather's as "ben Itzhak." He told
me he has substantial evidence that this great-grandfather was named
Sholom. Is there any kind of relationship between these two given names?

Perhaps there is not and the individual's name was simply Sholom Itzhak,
or vice versa?

Your thoughts are appreciated.

Sarah Hinde in the Volozhiner family #rabbinic

yonatan@...
 

I have posted in the past regarding my research into a possible family
link between my gggrandmother, Sorah Hinde SCHATZ of Pinsk.

I received a reply >from someone mentioning or refering to sveral Sorah
Hinda or Hindas in the Volozhin family, but it got lost with all my
other files

If that person can send me his previous replies or if anyone else with
a good knowledge of the Volozhin family inform me if they know of
recurrence of this name.

Thanks

Re: Sounds like Yesdrez #lithuania

Kovitz, Sonia <Sonia.Kovitz@...>
 

I am replying to the whole list only as an example of how to cast a wide net while investigating cryptic family history hints. Below is a quick summary of the basics supplied by Debbie and then, although I don't have any firm findings, I did come up with a few good leads after about a half hour of searching (out of curiosity because of the mysterious last name Yesdrez). Summary:

Lena (Chyena Leah Levi) and Max (Lazer Mendl) Kaplan (Yesdrez) left Kupishok 1890s.

Siblings of Lazer Mendl Yesdrez: Sarah Riva, Zelig and Yankel.
Chyena Leah Levi, daughter of Avram and Mina of Anyksciai, Lithuania (died
Kupishok 1890's)

.............

I figured Max didn't pull Kaplan out of thin air; cf. YANKEL KAPLAN born in Anyksciai in 1815.

MINKA daughter of LEVI (surname KADYSHEVICH) born in Anyksciai in 1856.

Chaim YANKEL OSTER [>from soundex search of EZDRE] born in Anyksciai in 1830
with daughter SHORE (SARA). There was a large family group of OSTERS in
Anyksciai.

ELIYAHU (cf. ELIASH) ASTAR in Pasvalys; also ELIASH OSTER.
MENDEL ASTAR was lost in the Holocaust.

These are just starting points but there are lots of possibilities here.
Also remember that cousins or second cousins born in roughly the same
generation make have identical names if they were named after the same
departed forebear. Thus the Mendel Astar lost in 1941 could be related
Lazer Mendel "Yesdrez."

Re: Warsaw ghetto death list #warsaw #poland

rosef@...
 

Dear Hadassa,

Thank you so much for the URL. My mother-in-law's family name TREPMAN is
mentioned. This maybe my husband's grandmother and his aunt. If this matchs
info >from the cemetery. Or at least the aunt and maybe far cousins. We also
found my father-in-law's name FELDMAN (a bit more common).
If we weren't going to Washington DC for the conference and to see our sons
(we live in Israel) I won't think twice to pay. But I am afraid that we might
have to wait this time. Thanks again, it gives us some hope of finding some
information.

University of Warsaw records #warsaw #poland

Gary Mokotoff - Optimum <mokotoff@...>
 

In 1997 I went to Warsaw and one of the sites I visited looking for
documentation of Mokotow relatives was the archives of the University of
Warsaw. At that time, they were in the process of computerizing the names of
every student who attended the University >from about 1915 to the present.
The only Mokotow in the database was a Riwka Mokotow. The information they
have in their archives can be very valuable. It includes the application for
admission which includes such information as address and names of parents.
It also included a picture of the student.

Many of their Jewish students were murdered in the Holocaust and the picture
may be the only surviving portrait of the person.

I doubt if they would respond to mail inquiries, but if you are going to
Warsaw, it might be worth a stop at the archives. The lookups are quick
because it is computerized. (I seem to recall they even had wildcard search
capability.)
