Orhei (Orgeyev), Moldova yizkor book completed #yizkorbooks

Terry Lasky <talasky@...>
 

I am happy to announce that the Orhei, Moldova yizkor book is now
complete and online. There is an Insert at the beginning of the book
which includes all surnames >from the book and where they can be found.
Hopefully this will help you in locating family members if you don't
have time to read the whole book.

I would like to thank everyone who helped both financially and by
volunteering to make this all possible - there are too many people to
name all of them. However, I would like to especially thank three
people who I believe deserve special recognition. First, Lance
Ackerfeld who has put all of this information online (over 200 pages,
more than 125 chapters and 250 pictures). Lance is one of the Jewishgen
volunteers who works behind the scenes and rarely gets any recognition -
and he deserves plenty. Secondly, Jerrold Landau who did a large
portion of the Hebrew translation. An excellent translator who can
always be counted on to do a superb job - couldn't have done it without
him. And finally, Marsha Kayser who translated most of the Yiddish and
some of the Hebrew. She volunteered numerous hours and money to this
effort and kept me going when I was ready to give up. She was truly my
saviour.

Re: RICHTER, WILDER and GOTTESMAN families in Austria #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

In my previous posting I pinpointed this Krakow marriage for Janette:

WILDER Salomon - Getzel 1894 M 78 999 Krakow Hersch - Leib Scheindel
SCHLOSSER
BERNHUT Malka 1894 M 78 999 Krakow Nathan Roza czyli Reizla SZWARTZ

but commnted on the marriage of a daughter in 1905!

Thank you so much Logan [we have happily cooperated on Vienna-Galicia
research before] for linking my findings in the previous posting to
this Krakow family tree - the fit is perfect. We even have the sister
Rose, Janette told us about for Sadie [identified by Logan as
Szeindel WILDER, dob May 10,1879

Now it is all clear: the parents must have undergone a civic marriage
in 1894 - to legitimise the children with respect to prevailing
Austrian law before emigration; they probably married first in the
late 1860s with a religious ceremony:

Had the children moved to Vienna or asked for a travel document [for
the USA] without a civic marriage, they would have been issued
passports under the name Bernhut [their mother's maiden name].

How is it I can find other people's gtgtgrandparents' wedding [with
links to gtgtgtgrandparents!] but have yet to find my own paternal
grandparents' wedding in London in the late 1880s? Wish me luck.

Family plot mystery in New York City #general

Jeff Miller
 

I have encountered members of a family buried together for whom I am unable
to determine their family relationship, and would appreciate any guesses, or
suggestions on how to resolve the dilemma that I have.

In particular, I have a Meyer or Mayer FINKELSTEIN who died in January 1946
at age 77, and Abraham FINKELSTEIN who died in 1914 at age 52. Although I
originally felt they might be brothers, the cemetery information (Mt. Zion)
is that his Hebrew name was Meir Leib and he was son of Shmuel Yitzhak ha
Levi and Fruma Chaikel. His spouse was Jennie.

Abraham is son of Isaac FINKELSTEIN and Zissel COHEN FINKELSTEIN.

The family was >from Lithuania, perhaps Kaunas (Kovno Russia) or near
Panevezys (Ponivez Russia).

Abraham and his wife Lena had ten children who included Samuel, Louis, Annie
(Hannah), Mollie, Rosie, one infant who died young, Israel/Isidore/Ralph,
Celia, Jacob/Jake/Jack, and Ida, the latter three being born in the US. The
family was originally in Manhattan >from as early as the end of 1892 to 1896
(for some members), and stayed until at least 1905, and then most have been
located over the years at various addresses in Brooklyn.

Meyer (Mayer) FINKELSTEIN and wife Jennie had daughters Bess GOLDMAN, Esther
GARDNER, Anna ELIAS, Martha KODISH, Charles and Harry FINKELSTEIN. I believe
Meyr (Mayer) arrived in New York in 1893.

Researching: FINKELSTEIN, LAN (LANE), IUDELOVICH (YUDELOWITZ), VAINER
(WIENER), VAISMAN (WEISSMAN/WHITEMAN), BLANKFORT/BLANKFURT, SPEKTOR/SPECTOR,
RABINOVICH/RABINOWITZ, ABARBANEL/BARBANEL, and others >from Panevezys,
Kaunas, Sirvintos, Seta, Vilijampole/Slobodka, Lithuania, and around the
world.

LEWKOWICZ from Piotrkow Trybunalski #general

I am seeking those who descend >from a LEWKOWICZ family of Piotrkow
Trybunalski. Though I am not likely to be related to all families with
this name >from Piotrkow, I seem to be related to some with this surname
and some similar ones, such as LEWEK.

I would be particularly interested in hearing >from folks who have known
early-mid 19th century ancestors with the names Blima, Aryeh, Chana or
Izrael LEWKOWICZ (>from Piotrkow only please).

This branch of the family took on LEWKOWICZ and variants in connection with
the patriarch of the family, Aryeh (also Lewek) who lived about 1750-1815
(approx). His wife was Blima, and another branch of the family took
on the surname BLUMENZON (the one >from which I descend). Blima appears to
have died in Piotrkow in 1839, alternately with surnames LEWEK and LEWKOWICZ.

Please respond privately.

Thanks.
