Gamshei #belarus

Herbert Lazerow
 

<Has anyone else encountered the name Gamshei or know what it might have been
translated to in the US? My online searches have turned up very few people
named Gamshei.>
Yes. Gamshei and its relatives (Ovshei, Evsei) are all variants of the
name Yoshue, commonly given as a Russian given name to boys whose Hebrew name
was Yehoshua. (Alexander Beider, A Dictionary of Ashkenazic Given Names 450-452
(2001)).
Most of these people took the English name Joshua when they immigrated,
but I know of one such person who became Herman.

Horowitz genealogy back to Spain #rabbinic

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

Can anyone point me to the source for the genealogy of the founder
of the Horowitz dynasty Yeshaya Halevi Horowitz (1465 Horovice -
1517 Prague) back to Pinhas Halevi Benbenisti (b. 1235) in Barcelona?
Everywhere I look you find this tree and the source is "tradition,"
but where is the first mention of this path? http://geni.com/4rM0c
I am not at all familiar with this area, but am curious if there are
any real sources for this legend (about which I am skeptical). On the
other hand, my own path to Horowitz (my 15g-grandfather) is relatively
well-documented. http://geni.com/1S5LN

Descendancy from R' Chaim of Volozhin #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Recently I was told, again that I am a descendant of R'Chaim of
Volozhin but that the exact link is not definite. What is know is
that my maternal grandmother's maternal grandmother, Sarah Hinde
SHAT"Z married R'Shlomo KANTOR . they lived in Pinsk/Karlin during
the mid 19th century. It was through Sarah Hinde who we presume was a
grandaughter of R' Itzaleh , son of R' Chaim. Family lore has it
that SarahHinde's parents died before she was married and R' Itzaleh
escorted her to her chupa .

There is a hint that her parents were a daughter of R' Itzaleh who was
married to R' Shmuel LANDAU who also gave shiurim at the Yeshiva and
both having died during her father's lifetime. Problem is that Sarah
Hinde doesn't appear in any of the published trees of the family that
I've seen.

If anyone has personal knowledge of the above I would be happy to hear.

Thank you
