Louis SOLOMON from Vilnius or Sirvintos Lithuania #lithuania

Jeff Miller
 

I'm researching Louis Solomon (1850-1910), married to Leah Livingston (1869-1894), with four children born in New York (Harold, Joseph, Irving, David) born between 1885-1894. Are you familiar with this family? I'd love to work with you on family connections.

Happy Passover., Jeff Miller, Maryland e-mail singingtm@...

 


ViewMate re-post translation review #poland #translation

Wendy Newman
 

Hi there,  I once posted the following on ViewMate for a translation.  The file in JRI-Poland indexed the file for the birth of a Jakob Icek Ziskind in Opole in 1863.
But when I got the translation, the child's name was Kielman Icek.  Can someone take a look at this file again and tell me what the child's name is.  If it says
Kielman, is there a possibility that this was indexed incorrectly or that Kielman and Jakob are the same name?  I am now very confused.  Hope someone can help
out.  Here's the link for the re-post.  :)

I get the name Mathes Dornblum for the friend and 139 Gerorg St, N York. It could be the street is Gerry St. which, as one reader suggests, could be Cherry St.

fwiw (for what it's worth).

Hi Ellen,

In the Jan. 9, 1918 edition of "The Jewelers Circular Weekly" there is an obit for Joseph Isaac BARNETT.  You can see it at GoogleBooks.  Here is a link, hope it works:

https://books.google.com/books?id=jmMcAQAAMAAJ&pg=RA7-PA87&dq=%22joseph+isaac+barnett%22&hl=en&newbks=1&newbks_redir=0&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiXpJL_5OPoAhU5gnIEHYWCBv4Q6wEwAHoECAEQAQ#v=onepage&q=%22joseph%20isaac%20barnett%22&f=false

It mentions that Joseph passed on New Year's Eve, his son is B. BARNETT, and that Joseph was 85 years and 4 months of age, and resided at 3726 Danneel St.

If he left a will, it may provide more information about other family members.

Regards,   Sherri Bobish   Princeton, NJ

I'd be careful Yale -  there are a few megillot yukhsin (the name cames from the talmud of an ancient source of genealogy so it was used often in Rabbinic geneology) There was one written by Rav Bodek a student of the Besht, there is one by Abraham Hirschprung for R Chaim Halberstam of Sanz and the Megillat Yukhsin of the Maharal written by his son in law, Rabbi Yitchak HaCohen and grandson, Rabbi Meir Perls.  It seems one of the later two was shown to be a fabrication by geneologist Avraham Epstein, but its unclear which based on what I've read. 

 I've attached an article that discusses the Maharal's Megillat Yuchsin as well as the text itself (one of two versions from Hebrewbooks.com)

I don't know how far back it goes, but Beilinsohn's book starts with the sixth-generation of the descendants of the Maharal of Prague, and I infer it covers somewhat more than a century.  I would really like to see what it contains.  Does anyone know where a copy can be accessed?

As this is likely to be of general interest, please reply to the list.

Re: 2nd Great Grandfather Moshe Mordecai BARNETT found in Kutno, Lodz, Poland #poland

My great maternal grandfather was BERYL MOSES BARNETT (1834-1913) was from Russia PER HIS DEATH certificate. He and his family lived in Middlesbrough, England per 1871 and 1881 England and Wales censuses
 His brother LEVI CRUTCH lived in Wales after both families left Russia. Not sure which is the correct last name. The brothers left the I families behind in the UK when they came to New York and eventually to Cleveland, Ohio with their families following around 1882.  They also had a sister (no name known) who settled in South Africa and was married to a Samuel Albert.
Any of this sound familiar?

My ALK family lived in Vitebsk going back to the 1800s.  They were tanners mostly.
Eventually they made their way to Bialystok.
Thank you.


A Yiddish Tango and an Operatic Passover kiddush #yiddish #general

I know this is barely genealogy but it does include poignant photos. The song was written in Polish and translated into Yiddish. More about the history of the song at the link below.

Also, a link to Jan Peerce, a renowned Jewish opera singer from the 1960s, singing the Passover Kiddush. When I was a kid my family always used to listen to this during our seder; Jan Peerce had a much better voice tan any of us did! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zbIRseyTwY

Finally identified who is in photograph #general

Peter Bush
 

One of the many photos sitting in my G Grandmother's album has finally been identified. For the last 35 years, I was sure I knew who the two boys were. But only this weekend have I found that one of the boys is a younger brother. 
This branch of the family has been quite elusive over the years, but I found a niece of my cousin's wife on Ancestry who happened to have all her aunt and uncles photos. 
The motto is to contact everyone, even if they are related by marriage.


moderated The Windemere Children--Child Survivors of the Holocaust #holocaust #unitedkingdom

My family and I watched The Windermere Children when it was broadcast by the BBC in the UK in January as part of its’ commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

It was incredibly moving particularly since many of the UK Jewish community watching would have know some of the children who were given refuge here (in the UK).

Last November, my wife and I were privileged to go on a trip to Poland with our synagogue in the company of Mala Tribich (nee Helfgott) MBE. The trip we took followed the journey Mala took as a young girl during the Shoah. Although she was liberated by the British in Bergen-Belsen she did not come to the UK straight away. She was eventually reunited with her brother Ben Helfgott MBE who was one of The Boys given refuge in the Lake District at Windermere, Cumbria. He Weston to become a weightlifting olympian.

Mala is a truly remarkable person who not only a week ago was getting to grips with Zoom and having a chat with those of us who went on our trip to Poland with her.

She then conducted an interview with a friend of mine, which will then be played on-line to our synagogue as part of our annual Yom Ha’Shoah commemorations in a couple of weeks’ time.

Rabbi Aron HALBERSTAM of Sanz (1824-1903) #rabbinic #poland

Shaul Ceder
 

Rabbi Aron HALBERSTAM, the son of R. Chaim Yoel (the "Divrei Chaim" of Sanz-Nowy Sacz, Poland), married Chana Elka WEINBERGER (b. 1827), and the records I have checked in MyHeritage show that they had four children, including R. Aryeh Leibish, who was born in 1852. The problematic issue is that they were married in 1892 in Nowy Sacz (and this date was corroborated by JRI-Poland), when both were over 60 years old, and I have been unable to find any record of either of them having been married previously. Can anyone shed any light on this?

Hi,

In my family tree I have Rein PAAS (1806-1877), his wife Leno MARTINSON (1808-1886), from Torma, Estonia.

Is this the same family?
