I cannot comment about the military aspect, but I do wonder whether
John was really Jewish, as all the MERRITT I have looked at in the
1851 census of England and Wales appear really English to me! In the
1841 census, there is a handful apparently not born in England - who
could be Irish. Their professions are very non-Jewish

Perhaps John had changed his name on arrival in the US - or did he
convert on marriage to Caroline Rosenthal?

As John may not have had any close relatives in the US unless they
emigrated with him, it is natural that his wife Caroline would like
to be near her family in Omaha, Nebraska.

Caroline's father, or the wedding witnesses {REICHENBERG} may even
have offered John a job in the family business in Omaha.

Researching Playwright Moses Horowitz #yiddish

David Harris <dorsharris@...>
 

Dear YT&V members:
My great-grandfather's half-brother was a Yiddish playwright, actor
and director named (Professor) Moses Horowitz. There is some
biographical material about his life in Zylbercweig's "Lexicon of the
Yiddish Theatre" and "Vagabond Stars" by Nahma Sandrow. His name is
also mentioned in articles in the NY Times, including a report about
his funeral in 1910.

Census material shows that he had three children, all adults by the
1900 census and not part of the household. Research indicates that
the children were Abraham, Eva and Charlotte (probably adopted and a
member of his acting troupe).

Eva Horowitz married Simon Weisberg and their two sons were Herman
(Hyman) born 1900 and Leon born 1901.
Herman died in 1985 and Leon in 1978, both residents of New
York. I'm trying to determine if either son married and if there are
descendants.

On June 23, 1935, "a Leon Weisberg" married Mathilda Habas in
Brooklyn (certificate 9709). There is no confirmation that this Leon
is the son of Simon Weisberg. I have a request in for the marriage
application to see if the groom's parents are Simon and Eva. If anyone
is going to the Municipal Archives at 31 Chambers Street and can
short-cut this process for me through a look-up, I would be most appreciative.

If anyone knows of Leon or Herman Weisberg and whether they had/have
surviving family members, please email me at the address below.
Thank you,
David Harris

IAJGS 26 BOF summary #yiddish

jonina.duker@...
 

Want to add just a bit to David's posting of last week. The most
important thing is to reiterate that if someone is willing to step
forward as volunteer moderator -- remember that JewishGen trains
moderators and YTandV is not a demanding list to moderate -- then he will
become our volunteer webmaster. And we have so many photographs and so
much other data that we would love to put on the web.
- Around thirty people were there and twenty-one signed in. This was a
great turn-out. Other similar BOF sessions had as few as four people.

- David passed out a list that he put together >from our archives of who
is searching for whom. The categories are:
Surname; Given (name); Activity (actor, musician, etc.); Location;
Stage Name; Time Period; Sender; Last Posting; Comment
I have just sent my search information after realizing that it wasn't
in the archives; please check to make sure that your search(es) has
(have) been posted on the list.
- Fritz Neubauer had copies of his beautifully bound compilation
entitled "The Guest performances of Moses Horowitz's Theater Troupe in
Vienna, December 13 to December 16, 1880". He put this together for the
Moses Horowitz Family Reunion on 14 August 2006 in NYC. The twenty-three
pages include Fritz's introduction. (While Moses Horowitz isn't yet on
David's list, I'm sure that it will be soon.)
- Doing the following by memory, so please if I leave you out, please
post to identify your contribution to the BOF session. In alphabetical
order: Harry Boonin shared his expertise about Philadelphia. Helene
Joseph volunteered to try to interview Anna Tzelniker (and it looks as if
she will be able to do so) as requested >from the beginning by Miriam
Margolyes. Steve Lasky talked about his website which is an online
museum including information about YTandV; he also has photographs of
tombstones >from Mount Hebron's Yiddish Theatrical Alliance section. Anna
Olswanger, a literary agent, attended because the topic seemed so
promising for her professionally (and at least two prospective authors
took her cards). Murray Shainis shared a great human interest story.
And as David posted, many others talked about their research interests
and their relatives.
Moderating, anyone?

Hi,

My mother's uncle was involved in the Yiddish Theater in NY and around the
U.S. The NYPL looked him up in some Yiddish lexicon of performers, and
despite a reading in bad Yiddish, my dad was able to translate it. There is
a black and white large portrait of him. He apparently, was born in Galicia
and came to the U.S.

His name was Sam Gertler. In case anyone is interested. I can not obtain
the photo in the near future, but I know where it is.

For general reference on Jewish Theater in Poland, etc. I have been working
on the past year and a half on a colleague of Spilzman ("The Pianist") who
worked with the poet Szlengel, the lyricist Wlast, etc. at the Cafe Sztuka.
She was a close relative to my father. She was deported after the Uprising
and died in a concentration camp. She was a poet, songwriter, pianist, and
singer. Wiera Gran was also involved at the cafe.

I am trying to put together a website/ article on her as well as the popular
musical life/ culture during the Warsaw Ghetto. My computer has been
flakey. I had a contact in Israel who was going to collaborate on it with
me, but I haven't heard >from her in over 6 or more months.

Perhaps someone may know of a publication if I draft an article that would
not require a PhD to submit, too?

Also, I have learned there is a new book on the cafes of the Warsaw Ghetto,
but it is in Polish. I can locate the title and authors if anyone is
interested.

I had hoped to submit some of my material on the Warsaw performer at the
conference and have it included in the resource room. Alas, I was under the
weather and couldn't rework the software for the website fast enough.

Don't know if this help, but thought I would contribute to the discussion.

Regards,

Courtney Braun

KABALKIN from Dankara, Latvia to Harbin, China #latvia

Jules Feldman
 

I am searching for the descendants of a KABALKIN family who lived
in Harbin, China. Probably in the 1920s and onwards.

According to notes I received: Sheva, the daughter of Gershon and
Hanna Tsipa COHEN/KAHN of Dankara, Latvia was married to a Mr.
KABALKIN and they lived in Harbin, China.

They had a son Yitschak and a daughter (first name not known to me).

I will be grateful for any leads that will help me find descendants
of these relatives.

Thanks,

Mindful of David's suggestion that all the names that we are searching
should be listed in our discussion group archives, I checked to see if I
had ever posted the name of my spouse's great-great-aunt. Yes, in
JewishGen -- and no, in YTandV. So here goes.
Ann BRODY / BRODIE was an actress in the Yiddish theater, in New York,
and maybe elsewhere. My spouse is searching for her descendants and
relatives. Her nephew, my spouse's maternal grandfather, was Milton
SCHLESINGER, a musician in New York.

I am very keen to know more about the GRUNHUT/STEINER

Descendants of Martin Steiner

1 Martin Steiner b: 1774 in Kuttenplan, Eger
(Bohemia) d: April 21, 1864 in Innsbruck
.. +Johanna Seligman b: 1792 in Landau/Pfalz d: July 7, 1869 in
Innsbruck
-------------------------------------------------------------------

I looked up the 1793 census of Bohemia and there are a few STEINER in
the Pilsner Kreis and one Emanuel and his large family lives in
Kuttenplan [Chodova Plana]* - he is a beggar. His son Markus could be
a candidate, but I somehow doubt it. There is also Simon STEINER in
Dorf Durmaul [Drmoul]** associated with Kuttenplan with first-born
son Salamon and three daughters. Could Martin be the second born who
had already left home? Simon had a better occupation - he was a
potash producer.

Searching for further candidates - assuming Martin was still living
in the area, I found an intriguing footnote to Mathes STEINER - also
a beggar - who lives with his sister Martha and son Mathes in Gut
Oschelin.*** It is in Czech and I will get a proper translation. It
appears to say that the son's name is Marty! Could this Adam's Martin
aged 19, before he left home?

**see Vol IV p 212 Dorf Durmaul
***see Vol IV p 217 Gut Oschelin

Sally Mann originally asked about the STEINER, KLAUBER, GRUNHUT,
SCHWARZ of Bohemia who emigrated to the US.

I have not done a careful check of the other Kreis of Bohemia - but
people with all these four names were all near neighbours in the
Pilsner Kreis 1793. The names are fairly common so it may be pure
coincidence. There is also a GLAUBER in Kuttenplan, which may have
morphed to/>from KLAUBER.

E. Braun & Co., fine linens, in Vienna and Berlin, and possibly in New York
after 1936. They are listed in the SSDI, as are their son Hans Harold (died
in 1985) and his wife Jean (died in 1971) who also lived in New York City.
I would appreciate any leads to descendants of this Wessely family. (Wessely
