Help with translating tombstones needed... #general

Tracy Doucet
 

I am trying to trace my families roots in Poland, all were >from rabbinical
families and originated around Radzilow, emigrating to the UK around 1881.


I am struggling, although I can find records in the UK >from 1881, I can't
find any information regarding the family in Poland.

The names I have are Sara, Saul and Bernard Salomons. I am hoping that here
are references to fathers names on the tombstones. If anyone can help by
translating the Hebrew Text I would be really grateful - I have the dates of
death having managed to work them out but am at a complete loss with names !

I have uploaded the files on viewmate, here are 3 files in total VM8898 -
VM8900 http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html

If anyone has any other suggestions on research I might undertake, I would
be grateful to receive ideas.
Please respond to ted@aspectus-group.co.uk

Many Thanks

Group trip to Lithuania and surrounding areas - 2007 #general

Howard Margol
 

I am organizing another group trip to Lithuania for June 2007. For several
years, I've said that "this will be my last trip." But each year, so many
people have asked me to organize another trip that I extended the trip one
more time. Another factor is, Peggy Freedman will be joining me in the
planning and organization of the trip, which will be a big help.. This will
be the 14th group trip I have organized and led to Lithuania.

The June 2006 group trip was exceptional with 37 participants. If you have any
thoughts about going to Lithuania, Latvia, Eastern Poland close to
Lithuania, or Belarus now is the time to sign up. My previous trip
participants can be contacted if references are desired.

Included - visits to the various Archives, synagogues, ghettos, Holocaust
sites, meetings with Jewish leaders, sight-seeing, guide/interpreters, and
two days to visit and spend time in your shtetl, or shtetlach of interest.
All meals are included (except for one dinner and two lunches), the finest
hotels (new & modern), modern bus with onboard toilet, and much more. Peggy
and I are very familiar with the Archives, the archivists, Lithuania and
the main places of Jewish interest.

I do not organize these group trips as a profit-making endeavor. Everything
is done at cost but in a deluxe manner. My main object is to encourage Jews
to go back to their roots, to encourage them to research their ancestors
and to enable them to see the rebirth of Judaism taking place in Lithuania.

*Important*: This trip is sponsored by the American Fund For
Lithuanian-Latvian Jews, Inc. (a 501(c)(3) non-profit. If there is a profit
from the trip, the entire profit will go to support the Jewish community
in Vilnius.

For details and a full itinerary of the trip, contact Howard Margol or
Peggy Freedman,

Seeking assistance in Ukraine #romania

Avi K. <u.sisraeli@...>
 

Hi "Siggers":

Beyond seeking any information about the families of my maternal
grandmother, Zlatta (Golda) LEVITT (born 1900, in Moghilev/Moghilov Podolski
& Avraham (Avrum) DUBENKO, her husband (my grandfather), as well as about
the family of my paternal great-grandfather, Philip KLAMMER (born somewhere
in Austria-possibly, Austro-Hungary/Vienna's area/Gura-Humorului ?!?) & his
son, Solomon KLAMMER, with his wife, Cecilia (Tsipora=Tsephora) KLAMMER
(also spelled CLAMER, in Romanian), I am wondering if anyone could offer any
help with information to help me find reasonablely affordable accommodation
in the Ukraine (the little town of Dondoshani's area or, the
Moghilev/Moghilov Podolski area (Otaki; Soroki; Beltsi-in all of which, I've
had family members born & living)-perhaps (& preferably so) through the
local Jewish community (maybe, in exchange for hosting same family in the
U.S.), along with someone who'd be willing to help me enhance my
already-existing Russian skills, in searching for & researching any possibly
(hopefully!)-found archival information pertaining to my family (along with
understanding it-if necessary).

I'd appreciate any tip/advice & piece of information!

Kindly, do send your ideas directly to my personal E-Mail address (as listed
below) please.

Will be looking forward to hearing >from anyone!

Thank you, Kol Tuv U'Vrakhot Rabot+a Happy Thanks-Giving to us all,

Re: Early records in Kishinev #romania

Yaron Pedhazur
 

George,

I have an ancestor named Elazar KOSHINSKI. It may be
that KOSHINSKI and KISHINISKI is the same name (?!?).

I descend of Elazar's son-in-law, Chaim Baruch of
Kishinev, who came to Tzfat and still lived in 1875
(the Silbermans of Tzfat are his descendants).

I don't know the family name of Chaim Baruch.

Elazar Koshinski was also the father-in-law of Rabbi
Menachem Nachum FRIEDMAN, the Shtefenesht Rebbe, and
the Bender Rebbe.

By family tradition, Elazar KOSHINSKI descended of
Rabbi Gedalya of Linitz.

If any of it rings a bell or helps, please let me know

Re: Bessarabia vs Bazar #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

According to "Where Once We Walked, Second Edition" Bazar was a town in the
Kiev region of Ukraine, 110 km NW of Kiev. The same name was also used for
a small town (22 Jews between the World Wars) that was near Chortkov, 77 km
NNW of Chernivtsi. This is also in modern Ukraine and was in the Austrian
Province of Galicia prior to the First World War. Neither of these
locations would have been in Bessarabia.

stumped seeking: BURZEVITSKY #belarus

Having recently discovered the birth surname of my paternal
great-grandmother, I've become stumped. Her name was: BURZEVITSKY and I
have not been able to find an instance of this name anywhere - not on
JewishGen, not on any of the usual databases one searches
(SSDI, Steve Morse, etc.).

Going on the assumption that the suffix indicated someone >from a town or
location, I've even tried seeking the town (or people) named BURZEVITZ or
BURZEWICZ. Nothing so far.

So folks - any ideas? (My great-grandmother and great-grandfather gave birth
to their children in Slutsk, Belarus, although I strongly suspect she came
from some other town.)
Thanks!

Louis SHUEL, German translations and Berlin doctors #general

Bea <blspabas@...>
 

Firstly, many, many thanks for all of your viewmate translations you sent me
(8866, 8867 & 8868), brilliant!

To follow-up on recent developments, my ggfather died in Berlin on 28th July
1905 aged just 40. He may only have spent just a few weeks or months in
Germany. Again, in time I hope to find out more information; have already
made more enquiries with various archives in the UK & Berlin. Although I
previously believed that Louis had either TB or Cancer, who knows, but the
cause of death appears to be menengitis, so of that we can be sure at least.
Even though it is very sad I feel a strong sense that Louis would have been
happy to have been "found" after 101 years.

It was the Mrs Esther SHUEL who died in December of 1905 in Berlin, but I am
still unsure if Mrs Esther SHUEL was a relative or not, but hope to obtain
further information >from Berlin's archives in due course. It may just be
her documents were sent as she just happened to have the same surname as my
great grandfather, Louis SHUEL.

Some of you have emailed me saying his name was spelt as SCNUEL or SNUEL,
but, I am certain this is just a spelling error, because official UK
documents (where he had lived previously) show his name spelt (and his wife
Rebecca's surname signed personally) as SHUEL (also without a letter 'c').
from what I know to date, Louis travelled alone to Germany, and, being
seriously ill, it is not surprising his surname was incorrectly spelt with
nobody to amend it there and then.

When I read Celia's posting (Subject: Luis SHIEL/SHUEL's death in Berlin &
Dr SOBERNHEIM's signature, dated 20 Nov, 2007, message no.17) I nearly fell
out of my seat! I am glad to have been of help to Celia whilst researching
my own family tree!

This is not the end of the line, it is just the beginning! Thank you
everyone,
