Looking for Sarah DRIBINS née SALMANOWITZ

Gerard Xavier
 

Hello.
I'm looking for informations regarding my great-grandmother Sarah SALMANOWITZ, who was born in Grobina, near Libau (now Liepaja) in Latvia circa 1852.
She married my great grandfather Gutman DRIBINS and was the mother of at least 7 children, including my grandfather Schulem DRIBINS. She died in New York in 1936.
Thank you for any information regarding her parents and/or ancestors in Latvia.

Gerard XAVIER,

I recommend TransferWise. It can be used for small amounts with little hassle and a small fee.

Re: Jewish refugees in Tashkent during WWII - Moroz

My relatives, who lived in Odessa, were also evacuated to Tashkent and other points East during the war.  They all returned to Odessa after the war, although my great-grandmother died before they returned.  (My grandparents always said she could not recover from the stress of being displaced.)

Mike,

Yes, apparently he was (at some point) a tailor in Moscow.  I'm trying to figure out where he was for most of his adult life, before and after WWII.  

Thanks for the translation and link.

Re: Kanth near Breslau, Silesia ( now called Katy Wroclawskie)

Rodney Eisfelder
 

https://www.mappingthelives.org/ shows 15 people living in Kanth in 1939 (not all of them Jewish). None of them have the surnames you mention. Jewish Families include DRYENFURTH, GAPPE, HOFFMANN, LOEWENSTEIN & TICHAUER. Obviously, anyone who left before May 1939 was not included in the census.

I hope this helps,

Re: Birthplace?

Alexander Sharon
 

This appears to be a place known as Solovyevka (Russian), listed also in JewishGen Gazetteer in Ukrainian as Soloviyivka (translates to English as Nightingale)

JGFF database lists two entries for this locality. Places by this name are located near large Jewish towns of Brusilov (Kiev region), Simferopol (Crimea), Vinnitsa and Voronovitsya (Podolia).

Dr. DeAngelis is at Johns Hopkins University. You may want to contact her to see how she came to use the term and if she ever heard of it before.

I also have a card for a woman I assume is a relative by marriage--same small hometown in Russia, same surname, but I have yet to connect her. Her name was Etka Rotshteyn (Rothstein) from Smiela/Smela Russia (now Ukraine).

Re: Did you know...the term Health Care Provider came from Nazi Germany?

Andreas Schwab
 

"Behandler" does not mean "Provider." "Behandeln" (verb) = to treat. "Behandler" (noun), one who treats, caregiver. The latter is not a normal word in the German language, but an ad hoc derivation especially invented for the purpose of humiliating those who had earned a legitimate professional licence as physicians but were despised bu the Nazis. 
The author of the original article cited, Paul Saenger MD, used "provider" as a translation for "Behandler" because he did not come up with a proper translation of the term. He should have used "caregiver", but unfortunately, he did not know better. An unfortunate but excusable mistake. The author of the 2019 article, Niran Al-Agba, uses this wrong translation in order to denounce the term "provider". He first makes the (wrong) connection of the word "Provider" with the Nazi tyranny, but then denounces the word for entirely different reasons that have to do with the lamentable state of the US health system that has transformed health care into a business venture. He thus is unwillingly extending the denigration brought about by the Nazis to physicians, nurses and other professional in the health care system of English-speaking nations.
Seeking the origin of the word "provider" in the term "health care provider" in Nazi Germany is a fallacy. Although I cannot attest to the origin of the term, the earliest occurrence I have found is in a book published in 1975 [1], at a time where the US health care system was not yet as business-oriented as it is today. Even if the term "health care provider" is not ideal, it has been ingrained into the English language and is probably here to stay. It is not by changing this term that the US health care system can be reformed and humanized.

Hi,

I have also been told that Morris is most likely Moshe by a family member.  It is said my father Morris Sherman is named after his Grandfather Morris (Moshe).  In Solomon's marriage registry, he lists parent's Morris Sherman and Ida Hoffman.

How does that differ from an ordinary Google search alert? I read the pages you link to but didn't see any explanation. When I tried using the tool, I just got a regular Google search, not one limited to ancestry resources or otherwise restricted.

Re: Need your help identifying Family Member's Country of Origin - #general

I think you are correct.

Solomon Sherman had a brother Sam Sherman.  Sam had a son Victor Sherman, Benjamin Sherman, Daughter Chava Sherman, Daugher Riva Sherman, and a couple other children I believe.

Through DNA, we just located one of the Sherman Relatives.  The son of Riva Sherman (Kim Sherman) was born in Lviv, Ukraine. According to him, Sam Sherman left with his son Victor, and everyone else was left behind. They were unable to get proper papers to leave.  He said Sam Sherman was born Vilednik.

Kim Sherman saidd that the "Wallednik" on Solomon Sherman's Registration Card we see appears to be Vilednik, which sounds like "Wallednik"

Can you "save your search" on Jewish Gen.  Unless search is saved, links from JewishGen don't work. You must first save, then take the link from the Saved Search.  Please do so!  Id love to see the documents you found.

Re: Need your help identifying Family Member's Country of Origin - #general

At the time Solomon Sherman married Sophia Carp (Krupnik), Solomon Sherman listed his parents as Ida Hoffman and Morris Sherman.  Of course, we cannot confirm this and must Solomon Sherman's word at face value.

Solomon had a brother Sam Sherman.  One of Sam's daughters was Riva.  Through DNA, we just located Riva's son.  The son Kim Sherman was born in Lviv Ukraine and said Sam Sherman was from Vilednik, Ukraine.

While we cannot read the document, Kim Sherman stated: "Wallednik" we see in this attachment is Vilednik, which sounds like "Wallednik". 

Re: Jewish refugees in Tashkent during WWII - Moroz

Tashkent was often a transition point, not a final destination.  In this case the "current address" field (lower left) has Tashkent oblast, Ordzhenikidze rayon, village Troitskoe, Lagernaya st 59.  Pre-evacuation address is Moscow (center of the screen). Current job is listed as a tailor at the Chirchik (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chirchiq) military supplies store.  Here is a link to Google Maps to show Troitskoe (now Troitsk ?) between Tashkent and Chirchik - https://goo.gl/maps/SyCYdy4fD9HyX5UX6
Typically, the lists of refugees were created in each evacuation locality in 1943.  I am not aware of other lists - refugees returning back to their home towns (with the exception of Polish citizens returning home after the war).  Some people returned home at first opportunity as their towns were cleared out of German, Romanian army units, while others waited until the end of war, in other cases people stayed for a few years after the war or permanently.  It just depends if they had anything/anyone to come back to.
