I am looking for a family named ROSENBERG (a very common name

in 1899 my great grandfather Menachem Moshe Meir ROSENBERG was born to
Yaakov Chanoch/ Heinach and Channa ROSENBERG in Warsaw, and he lived there
until he married in approx. 1917, his parents lived there longer, however i
don't know how long- presumably until they died.
Menachem Moshe Meir married in MOLAWA, Poland. Both his parents had died by
1922.
What records could i find about this family? is it possible to search the
burial records? what about street directories? census records?

Evelyn Frybort (efrybort@...) responded with another question:

Could MOLAWA, Poland actually be Mlawa?

Absolutely! My gg-gf lived in Mlawa and emigrated to New York in 1920. His
immigration manifest listed his town of origin as Molawa.

Reconciliation/Reparation project: site cite #germany

Dear SIGgers,
Searching for the Czech town of Bezdruzhice [phonetic approximation]
(Germ. Weseritz), Bohemia, for a project for Geni.com, I found this
site and thought it in keeping with a recent thread on the GerSIG
about a school project around Stolpersteine. The site contains
detailed narratives about the town I'm profiling and probably for the
many other locations as well. The "summer camp" is for volunteers
aged 40 and above.

https://www.asf-ev.de/en/summer-camps/get-involved/summer-camps-40.html

No need to stress the importance and humanitarian as well as
genealogical value of this project!

What can the acronym CHET-RESH in place of BET-RESH in a name mean? #germany

Justin Levy <jlevy2008@...>
 

Hello,

Several of the names in an early 19th century tax list (Schutz- und
Silbergeldliste) for the community of Landsberg an der Warthe (now
Gorzow Wielkopolsk) have the Hebrew acronym chet-resh in place of
bet-resh (i.e. son of Mr.), for example, Yosef chet-resh Abraham,
instead of Yosef bet-resh Abraham.

Would anyone perhaps be able to explain the meaning of this acronym?

Regards,

Justin Levy Dublin, Ireland (jlevy2008@gmail)

Family WITTGENSTEIN from Liebenau, Germany #germany

ronald Wallace
 

Happy Hanukkah to All

I am trying to trace a family WITTGENSTEIN >from Liebenau in Germany who
emigrated to the United States in the late 1800's.

Meyer WITTGENSTEIN, born 1813, arrived in New York >from Bremen in on a boat
between 1868 and 1871. This record appears in a book listing all passengers
from Bremen to New York between those three years.
His Eldest living son David, born 1845, arrived in New York on March 15th
1866 a couple of years earlier.

His wife Maria, nee WITTENBERG born 1814, and three of his daughters,
Emma, Caroline & Helene, arrived in new York July 16th 1870

After their arrival, I can find no record of them anywhere. It is likely
that they changed their name. His Grand Nephew, my Grandmother's brother,
who came some 60 years later changed his name to WHITNEY.

If anyone has any ideas or leads that might assist me in tracing this
family, I would appreciate any help. Please reply privately

Renata Zajdman z"l #general

Stanley Diamond
 

it is with deep sadness that I advise of the passing of Renata Zajdman on November
27th in Montreal. Our good friend and colleague Renata was a holocaust survivor,
one of the children saved by Irena Sendler in Warsaw. Renata was part of the group
that made certain that Irena was well taken care of in her later years and acted as
a consultant in the making of the movie The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler.

Renata devoted a great deal of her time ensuring that the horrors of the holocaust
are not forgotten, but of equal importance, she shared her knowledge and skills
with others to help fellow survivors in their quest to learn the fate of friends
and relatives.

Renata chose Montreal as her post-war home. In the mid 1990s, as a founding member
of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal, she became quickly immersed in and
played a pivotal role helping the dream of accessing the records in Poland.

Renata was on one of her frequent visits to Poland in May 1995 when she accompanied
my cousin Gary Widlitz (CT) on his visit to Ostrow Mazowiecka. It was their
meetings with, and warm reception >from town officials that inspired Michael
Richman and I to make our first visit to Poland six months later with the goal
of arranging for the indexing of all the records of Ostrow Mazowiecka that had not
been filmed by the LDS.

As for Renata, she had only just begun. One month before Michael and I left for
Poland, Jerzy Skowronek, the late former Polish State Archives General Director was
in Montreal for am historical conference. Renata was not only the translator when
we entertained Director Skowronek, but passionately transmitted the importance of
the mission that Michael and I were about to undertake. I will always look back at
that evening as one of the important steps in building the foundation of what
ultimately became Jewish Records Indexing - Poland.

For Renata, helping JRI-Poland was just one of her interests. Her crusade was to
spread knowledge of the Holocaust to everyone. She was an active member of
Children of the Holocaust and the World Federation of Jewish Child Survivors of the
Holocaust organizations. She was a tireless advocate in fostering positive
Polish-Jewish relations and was a founding member of the Montreal chapter of the
Polish-Jewish Heritage Foundation of Canada. And she frequently traveled around
North America sharing her testimony.

Three weeks ago Renata somehow brought to the surface once again that inner
strength that has been so characteristic of her in recent years. She journeyed to
Halifax to speak at a special presentation of the Irena Sendler movie. A most
appropriate final public appearance.

Renata has been my dear friend and sounding board, providing invaluable insights
and help whenever needed. I shall miss her. May her soul be bound in the bond of
everlasting life.
