Looking for Nowy Sacz records - Marcus/Gershon Langer #poland

Paula Blank
 

I am looking for records regarding Marcus/Mordechai Langer and his son
Gershon. They lived in Nowy Sacz and are both listed in Sefer Santz.
Marcus voted in 1809 and again in 1828 (electing a rabbi) as part of
the Jewish Council. Gershon was born around 1802 (according to his
death record in 1882). He also voted in 1828 and is listed as paying
taxes in 1866 as an inn keeper. Gershon married Rachel Hollander. I
believe Marcus was born in Amsterdam in 1763 and moved to Nowy Sacz
either before or shortly after Gershon was born. Is there any way to
obtain marriage and death records for Marcus and birth and marriage for
Gershon? Any direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Paula Langer Blank

All records are crucial to my family research, birth record of
my g-gf Mendel Perlmutter HY"D, and death records of his ancestors.

Pictures from pre-war Lodz #poland

Apollo Israel <apollo@...>
 

My mother has gone digging around in my late grandmother's album and has
found several fabulous group photos >from pre-war Lodz, Poland. I have now
posted them to Viewmate, and if you had relatives in Lodz before World War
II, you may want to take a look and see if you recognize anyone:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM33793
is a photo probably taken in the late 1920s of my teenaged grandparents
among two dozen other young people in their Tsukunft group. Tsukunft
was the youth wing of the Bund socialist labor movement, and they are
holding a portrait of a Yosef PIPIKOW, who I believe was a Bund
organizer/founder. The faces of everyone in the photo are very clear.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM33794
is an undated photo, probably >from the late 1920s or early 1930s,
showing the orchestra in which my grandfather played as a young man.
It shows 28 men (including my grandfather), most holding wind
instruments, only a few of whose names we know. Their faces are
very clear.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM33795
is a photo dated May 4, 1936, showing my grandfather and the
orchestra, which I think he was conducting by then. They are clearly
giving an outdoor concert, and the faces of the band members are very
clear. Some spectators can be seen clearly too. Again, we only know
a couple of names of the band members.

Previously, I posted a quite damaged photo of my grandfather's orchestra,
taken probably around 1938. It is now in the Viewmate archives, and if
anyone wants to take a look, the link is:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/responselist.asp?key=VM32902

If you recognize anyone in any of the above photos, or if you know
anything about my grandparents' Tsukunft group in Lodz or the
orchestra(s), I'd be very happy to hear >from you!

All the best,

Janova #lithuania

Judith Potts <fitnessgrammy@...>
 

Hello Litvaks,

I am new to the site, but have been doing some family research based
on writings left by my grandpa. It is a wonderful journey which I am
sorry that I didn't start sooner when I would have had access to
more first-hand stories. The family came >from Janova and a smaller
suburb called Slabutka. (sic)

As an aside, (I now am teaching English as a second language to a
couple >from Lithuania via Israel. They speak four languages and claim
to be having a terrible time with English. They are actually doing
very well, but they worry about the citizenship test even though they
know more about the US than most Americans) They were the ones who
told me that the name we thought was a joke, Slabutka, was actually a
place.

Now for my information, the family name is Wender, which I haven't
found on your lists. It means that they came >from the land of the
Wends. (but, that is another story.) My grandpa told me that anyone
in this country named Wender is probably related to us. The family,
mostly my Great grandmother Chasha Riva Blum (or Bloom,) made and sold
liquors or wine. My great grandfather, Chiam Ben Zion Bentzel Wender
was a melamed or teacher and probably also a peddler. When he came to
this country he did work as a peddler in the lower east side of
Manhattan or perhaps Brooklyn.

Our branch of the family, and even my little arm has grown
tremendously. I am sure it is the same for most of you. It is nice
to find a connection with other people who are interested in family
histories. Even if there is not a direct connection

I am hoping to find people named Wender and Ancestors >from Janova.

If you are on Ancestry.com you can look up my family tree which is
still a work in progress. It is under the name Wender, Bluestone,
Davis, Horowitz. Maybe you will find a match. I did make a connection
with someone who did. Incidentally, most of the men in the family
have been named: Morris, Joseph, Harris, Herbert, Bernard, Benjamin,
Aaron, Lewis and or a name stemming >from those.

I look forward to acquiring more information through you.

Taurage, Kovno gubernia, Lithuania #lithuania

philafrum
 

Dear Litvak SIGgers,

I'm doing research for a client whose uncle (YANKEL BER BLECHER)
came >from TAURAGE, Lithuania. She claims that her uncle immigrated
to Australia in 1937, but so far I haven't been able to find any way
to trace that journey. I've used National Archives of Australia
(naa.gov.au) but haven't found the right individual; he was born at
the end of the 19th century. I've located some manifests, but again
I can't be sure they match.

I've noticed that there are more than 150 individuals researching
Taurage. I'd appreciate hearing >from you with descriptions of how
your ancestors traveled >from Taurage to Australia. Was there an
immediate stop? Where in Australia did they settle? Is there a
landmenschaft for Tauragers in Australia?

Many thanks.

Reverse immigration #lithuania

Judith Singer
 

Thank you everyone for your helpful responses. Oddly, I just read
again yesterday that the proportion of Jewish immigrants who returned
to Russia was "almost zero" - and now I have realized, with your help,
that that might have been true, but the key word here is "Russia".
Before World War I, of course, Lithuania was part of the Russian
Empire, but after the war, it was an independent country. Its new
constitution guaranteed full rights to the Jews and although that was
not always the practice, at least the oppressive laws of the Russian
Empire no longer existed. The Jew could once again regard Lithuania as
their homeland and apparently many did return. The situation
gradually deteriorated and there was another significant wave of
emigration in the 1930s.

One of the people who wrote to me directly and not to litvaksig was
aware of Jews who traveled to the U.S. under false passports and
raised the question of whether these immigrants disclosed their actual
identity in their naturalization papers. I can tell you that in my
family, this was not the case. Five sons and a daughter of my
great-grandfather immigrated here around the turn of the last century,
most of them legally, but the one who had to use someone else's
passport retained the very different name on the passport for the rest
of his long life

ViewMate Translation Request - German. For Chany Hass birth Record #galicia

Alan Seid
 

Hi,

I would really appreciate a word for word German to English translation
for the highlighted row. The image is a birth record for Chany Hass
born 20 Mar 1892 in Nadworna.

I've posted the image on ViewMate at the following address
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM33805
Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

I can read the following:
Column 6: Father's name is Leib Hafs. Place name Nadworna.
Column 7: Mother's name is Scheindel Kriege. Mother's parents names
are Meier Josef & Chany Kriegel. Place name Bohorodczany.

I also have a question. It looks like Leib Hass's name is spelled Hafs.
Anyone know why that is?

Thank you

Alan Seid
