Roy Ogus
 

I'm trying to make contact with a member of the family of Dr Tobias
Schneider, who died in Johannesburg on 23 November 1991, at aged 86.
Dr. Scheider was a past president of the South African Jewish Board
of Deputies, and I understand that he may have had two daughters.

Please let me know if you know how to contact any of his family members,
or can provide me with any details of his descendants.

Please respond to me directly.

Many thanks for your help!

Re: Are my husband and I related? #dna

Max Heffler
 

Bennett Greenspan, President/Founder of Family Tree DNA says there were no
more than 25000 Jews in the 14th century, and by marrying each other, we are
highly related. DNA has proven I am distantly related to each of my wife's
parents and most Jews that match one of the 11 profile I manage, match all
11 including both of my parents' and in-law's lines.

My husband and I have always wondered if we are actually related as he and I
both have Aron as a family surname in our ancestry....

Searching Rabbinic court after WWI permitting Agunot #rabbinic

אברהם <avraham997@...>
 

Dear Genners

I wish to inquire which Rabbinic court and which Rabbi/s dealt with
permiting Agunot to remarry after the first World War in Slovakia.
(Which Rabbi or Rabbis under the authority of which Beis Din performed
Hataras Agunot in Bratislava Pressburg after the first worldwar?)
There were, as known, many soldiers >from the German and Austrian armies who
did not return after the War, and their wives were banned >from remarrying.
My grandmother who lived in Bratislava Slovakia (Pressburg) was one of these
women, and I therefore wish to ask whether anyone knows the answer and can
give me the names I seek.
For those who are not aware of the meaning of Agunot: It means married women
whos husbands left them or died and the women are stranded and can not
remarry without a Get (Devorse agreement) or prof of their husbands death)

With grateful thanks
from Abraham Lapa

Temple Lechem Mishneh, NYC and rabbi William Kronwirth #rabbinic

Jeff at SG
 

Has anybody heard of a Temple Lechem Mishneh that apparently existed at
8-10 Avenue D, Manhattan in 1907? The congregation rabbi was a William
Kronwirth (not sure of the spelling of the last name).

I cannot find that congregation listed anywhere.

Thank you.

Roots in Novarodok-19th Cent. #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My ggreatgrandmother, gittle ABRAMOWITZ left Novarodok during the
latter part of the 19th cent and came to the states via Liverpool. We
presume that some how she was related to or her maiden name was
HUREWITZ (or variant spelling). Does anyone know of such a connection
or know how I can research such a connection.

The ABRAMOWITZ was related to the Rav (Rabbi) of Novarodok , David ben
(son of) Moshe of Kletzk, who served as Novarodok's Rabbi some 200 +
years ago.

TIA

Maggid of Dubno #rabbinic

merrilleweber
 

Does anyone know of a family tree for the Maggid of Dubno, Rav Yaakov
Kranz? I am especially interested in his descendants through the next
four generations, and particularly those who remained in Miedzyrzec
Podlaski (Podolian Mezrich).

In addition, does anyone have any information about the Zingerman
family? There was a rabbi affiliated with the Makerever Chassidim in
Chervonoarmei'isk (then called Pulin) near Kiev in the mid-1800s, and
family belief is that they came originally >from Germany.

Finally, does anyone know anything about the ancestors or siblings of
Rabbi Yosef Bunim Walles, who married the daughter of the Berditchever
Rebbe?

Thank you,
Merrill Weber

Re: Era and Shantzie Becker 1910 St. Louis census #ukraine

Barbara Zimmer
 

Dear Genners,
Marilyn asked about Era/ Vera and Shantzie Becker in the 1910 census.
Using the St Louis city directories, I was able to find Dora and Jennie BECKER at the same address in the 1920 census. I could follow them back to 1900 and forward past 1920. I suspect that Dora died in 1924 (there is a death notice). Jennie was still single in the 1930 census.
