ZOLDAN-WEISS, Satmar Rebbe, R. Yoel Teitlebaum, Yismach Moshe #rabbinic

David Zoldan
 

Hi,

My relative is Yaakov Shmuel Zoldan (circa 1850-60 until 1920).

He married Hendel Weiss who was known to be a "cousin" of the Satmar
Rebbe, Rabbi Yoel Teitlebaum.

I have been researching together with some cousins who are descendants
of Hendel Weiss Zoldan. We believe the connection can be traced back
to the ancestor of Rabbi Yoel Teitlebaum who was named Tzvi Hirsch
(Schiff) Teitlebaum.

from Tzvi Hirsh's first wife was born a son named Rabbi Moshe
Teitlebaum, well known as the "Yismach Moshe".

from Tzvi Hirsh's second wife was a daughter named Sara who married
Menachem Weiss. We believe it is likely that these are the
grandparents or great grandparents of Hendel Weiss Zoldan.

Sara and Menachem Weiss had a son Efraim Weiss born 1812 and a son
Herman Armin (Tzvi) as well as an additional child. We believe our
Hendel Weiss Zoldan is likely a daughter (or granddaughter) of either
Efraim Weiss or Herman Armin Tzvi Weiss or another unknown brother.

Does anybody have any additional information or any idea where to turn
to regarding this Weiss family. We believe we have exhausted the well-
known genealogy sites.

Thank you in advance for any lead or information,

Searching for Tosca (Tovah/Tauba) Krakowski (Goteborg, Sweden) #scandinavia

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

I am searching for a woman named Tosca Krakowski, that shows up in the
following testimonial page in Yad Vashem. The source states Tosca is a
daughter of Rafael Szczuciner z'l who perished in the Holocaust. The
source was compiled by jews members of the jewish community of
Goteborg, Sweden.

https://yvng.yadvashem.org/nameDetails.html?language=en&itemId=9106030&ind=3

I am guessing Tosca may have lived in Sweden sometime. (Her Hebrew
name may be Tovah (Tauba in Polish).
Rafael is my relative, and me and Tosca have never heard of each other.

I see one Naftali Krawkoski mentioned in the Sweden National Archives,
possibly married to a Barbara Krajnik (my guess).

If any of you can help locating her whereabouts, I would appreciate.

Regards,

If you wish to be considered as a speaker for this important conference
on Jewish Genealogy, please go to our website at: www.iajgs2020.org and
read our Call for Proposals to begin the submission process. While
covering all the major Jewish Genealogy topics that you've come to rely
on the IAJGS conferences for, we will also be looking for proposed
presentations which focus on the following hot topics:

1) A "Beginners" track for those who have never attended an IAJGS
conference before and who may or may not consider themselves new to
Jewish genealogy.
2) A "DNA" track to help all of us become better acquainted with the
immense insight that DNA is adding to the field of genealogy.
3) A "Heritage" track to help provide cultural context that both
inspires and enhances our genealogical explorations.
4) A "Shoah" track specifically to honor the memory of those who were
lost in the calamity of World War II.
5) A "Military" track -- With the US Naval Base San Diego just a few
blocks >from our convention, we hope to offer sessions which will
recognize military angles to Jewish genealogy, both >from the USA and
the rest of the world.
6) A "Latin America" track – Recognizing San Diego's proximity to
Central and South America and the need to find and understand our
relatives who live or lived south of the border.

All other subjects related to Jewish Genealogy and Genealogy in general,
will, of course, be considered.

See our web page at www.iajgs2020.org for more information.

Best of luck >from all of us - and thank you!

Help - Crack a puzzle about Ptaszek family research #poland

דוד נ.א.
 

Summary:
1. Could it be that "Beyla" in one record is "Dwora" in another?
2. Is "Myszka" likely to be "Hisza"?

Baruch Hashem, I managed to reach my family research a few generations
back to the early nineteenth century, to a grandfather named Asher
Ptaszek, >from the town of Miedzyrzec. Except here, I was stopped by a
fascinating challenge.

"Grandpa Asher" had a brother, named Nachman. On the other hand, I
found in the town a man named Nachman Ptaszek. If Nachman is the
brother of "Asher" - then it fascinating. Because the documents tell
about Nahman's parents and even his grandparents (until 1760!), And
also about his many descendants, of whom I also found people living
with us today.

But, how disappointing: I can't find conclusive proof of Nachman's
identification as Asher's brother. On the one hand, all signs indicate
that they are siblings, but on the other hand - there is some data
that contradicts that. And the "conclusive " proof - I don't, because
I don't have enough data on Asher's family.

I won't give you all the data and image analysis here, because it will
be long, I'll just share with you the basics, and the problems that
mark me.

The documents clearly state that Asher's wife called "Dwora" and that
he had a brother called Asher. And also Nachman's documents say he had
a brother named Asher. In terms of age - they are similar, both about
1808. Other signs indicate a match.

So why not? Mainly because of the following reason:
I found the death record of a person named Asher Ptaszek. It can be a
good match for my grandfather, especially in light of the fact that he
died young (24), like my grandfather. But, my grandfather's wife was
called "Dwora", and the widow of this "Asher" was called "Beyla".

The names are quite different, it seems that the clerk was wrong. She
may have been called two names "Dwora Beyla" but that is also
unlikely. Deborah appears in her name so her only name in three
certificates over different periods (birth, marriage, and death of her
daughter), strange that in one certificate only Beyla appears as a
single name.

And assuming this Asher is not "My Grandfather Asher" is a problem.
Because the names of his parents are very similar to the names of
Nachman's parents, and very likely they are brothers, and if so he is
Nachman's brother and not "mine".

The parents of this Asher (>from the death certificate) called Samuel
and "Myszka," while Nachman's parents called Samuel and "Hisza." It's
probably the same people. Especially as far as I know - there is no
such woman's name "Myszka", very likely it is the clerk's mistake in
identifying the sound. How about that?
