Epstein, Henryk Warsaw #poland

caubel.david@...
 

i am looking for information from Henryk Epstein (my grand-grand-father) that lived in Warsaw. 
He was born in Warsaw in 1882.
He was murdered during WW2.
He worked as bank director in Warsaw.

I knew that during the year 1940, he succeed leaving Warsaw and went to Bialystok. The address mentioned on his 1940 postcard letters was U.S.S.R. Bialystok, Rewolucyjna 23/5.

I would like to find information about Hernyk Epstein (living house in Warsaw, job activities details, parents, and so). 
Moreover, i didn't find the Rewolucyjna street in Bialystok. I am looking for information about it.

Finally, i would like to know if there is any information about people that left from Warsaw to Bialystok after september 1939.

I thank you in advance for you help

All the best
David


Re: Divorce Among Jews in Poland #poland

Wendy -
Any divorce in Poland would probably occur in a religious setting like the marriage itself. The Rabbi would give a Gett. It’s possible that to avoid the “shame” of being divorced, it might not be announced on public records. However it would definitely be recorded by the Rabbi and the new marriage record would probably mention it.

When looking for the first wife, make sure to look for her under the surnames of both her parents. Their marriage would probably not be recognized if it wasn’t registered civilly.

300th anniversary of birth of the VILNA GAON #lithuania

Eric Mack
 

The Vilna Gaon, also know as the "GRA", was born during Pesah, 300 years ago.
 
Many events were planned to take place during 2020 to honor his achievements, and then the coronavirus struck.
 
An article about his legacy was published in the Jerusalem Post magazine on January 3, 2020.  The URL is https://www.jpost.com/judaism/a-math-loving-star-gazing-mystic-the-vilna-gaon-reexamined-612782
 
Thousands of us with Lithuanian ancestry are descended from him, and his spiritual legacy lives on in various yeshivot and shuls around the world.

Hi from Paris,
Dear Margalit,
Concerning DP's camp in Germany, I am sur you will find answers by contacting Bad Arolsen archives.
In this place, Allied forces collected every piece of paper found after camps liberation and files from DP's administration.
You directly access and search Bad Arolsen archives with this link :https://arolsen-archives.org/en/search-explore/search-online-archive/
Be aware of their advice : only a part of victim's archives are on line.
If you find or if you search somebody, fill the "inquiry form" : https://arolsen-archives.org/en/search-explore/inquiries/submit-inquiry/
They reply always, but delay can be some weeks.
Apart from archives of deportation, nazis camps and DP's camps, they detain some personnal objects of our "Losts" and try to give them back to descendants.

Re: Seeking WEISS family history in Hungary / Romania #hungary #romania

Renee Steinig
 

Hi Ronald,

Fortunately, for people who immigrated, we can often turn to U.S. records to determine parents' names. 

A photo of your great-grandparents' grave is on FindaGrave...

Ignatz's Hebrew name was Yitzhak ben R'Yisrael; Theresa's was Tamar bat R'Moshe. It's possible that their death records will show their mothers' names. Also check passenger manifests, which often mention the name of the nearest relative still in the "country whence [the] alien came."

Re: Israel Death Index - Anschel and Ida Katz #israel

Dahn Cukier
 

AFAIK there is no central death data base open to the public.
The Bituach Leumi and Ministry of Interior have most death and
grave information. I do NOT know when the data began being recorded.
Bituach leumi pays for the burial of Israeli citizens.

Searching for graves in Israel online can be frustrating.
=Billiongraves claims to have photos, but the indexing takes time
=Findagrave volunteers need to know at least the cemetery or the
burial society (and the father's name).
=GRAVEZ is a new application that has photographed and indexed 28 of the
larger cemeteries and is working on Mt of Olives.
=Tel Aviv, Sgula, Hod Hasharon, Haifa, Military**
If you know of another online database write me directly and I will
summarize the list.
Jewishgen has a number of cemeteries and most important, the Hebrew
spelling of many names.

Remember that indexes can be wrong or misleading, searches should be
imaginative. This advise includes all indexes.

All requests to burial societies or searches on data bases require
the name of the deceased and the FATHER's name. The date
is also helpful.

If you have the Israeli ID number and know the location, the search
is a simple call to the office.

ID number. Either from a record you have or if the person owned a
home (house or apartment) AND the land was parceled, they MAY
be listed in the land registry - but you need the address. Land
registry queries cost about 3 USD each (Apartments do not correspond
to the numbering in the registry). I have only been able to
find one ID with this method.


I have requested location of graves from before 1955 and have been
told by the local society, that they have no recordings. One grave
was from 1936, the other from 1952. The people may have been lazy,
but they may have no information. The larger cemeteries may have
been better setup to keep records.

I was told on a kibbutz, that a person buried there was not because they
only bury members. It turned out that the person was the sister
of a member and the grave was located on the kibbutz.

**Military. The site is izkor.gov.il and includes people buried in military cemeteries,
soldiers who have died on active duty, police, at least some security personnel
and some prestate military figures.

                Is there a searchable Israeli death index?

Recently, Rose and Theo have offered hints about getting death certs.  My targets are siblings of my maternal grandmother and their children.

I have looked at FindAGrave and BillionGraves, and there is one person close.

Precisely, the earliest pair is Ida (perhaps born Ides) nee Puretz, and married to Anshel  Katz.

Ida was born 13 Feb 1899 and this is a compilation of notes that I have on her:

per XX > in Koln married a man from Breslau.  In 1935 left for Palestine.  ( died in Israel)

            Per YY > had one son, who died young - in his 20s.

                        Found some papers - 1966 from I. Katz,  Keren Kajemet 31 - Tel Aviv -

Per YY - this is Ida Puretz Katz . Also have 1950 receipts of packages to A(nschel). Katz and I. Katz at the same address (Blvd).

 

I see that there is a rather famous Asher Anchel Katz, and wonder if our Anschel had a first name not known to me.  My sources are long deceased.   I don’t know Hebrew, but can labor through, esp with machines translations.

 

Any help will be thanked profusely.

Re: Rabbi Adam of Rohatyn, about 1750 #galicia #rabbinic

Dale Friedman
 

Hello,

Regarding your request to fill in the gap between Rabbi "Adam" and his descendants until 1895 (and later) I would encourage you to join the Rohatyn Shtetl Research Group. There is definitely information about the Nagelberg descendants of Rabbi Adam discussed in this Google Group as well as a considerable amount about many other families as well as about Rohatyn and nearby towns.


Indeed, anyone with ancestors from Rohatyn and nearby towns should also consider joining the group as there is an incredible wealth of shared information on the site from group members.  To request access please use the following link to contact Dr. Alex Feller, the founder and website administrator:

Benjamin Shapin family #names

Paul Silverstone
 

I have been trying to find Benjamin SHAPIN and his family in the 1940 census or anywhere else.
He was born in 1898 in Russia, his wife Sarah/Sadie Silverstein was born in 1902 in Poland.  They married in NY in 1917, had four children
Benjamin, Meyer, Nancy and Shirley, born in NYC.
I found Benjamin Shapin married to Hilda Obod in the 1940 census in NYC.

The others do not appear in the census, nor in the draft registrations.
Perhaps the family changed  its name.  I tried Sha*

Can someone suggest an alternate search mechanism?

My uncle Max Fromstein married Bessie Leibowitz also spelled Labovitch and Laibowitz in Toronto. They had three children here. Might she be part of your family? Her parents were Louis Leila Leisle Labovitch and Jennie Kamenezky or Ramenezky. I do not have birth locations for them. Bessie was born in Russia, which as we know could mean anything.


Re: Central Death certificate DATABASE from ISRAEL in english is available? #israel

Andres Carciente
 

Thank you so much!

 

From the death certificate is there any information about his/her marriage if this happened outside Israel?

For example one who was already married in Hungary and made Aliyah to Israel in the 60s and the died in the 70s,is there any register ( from the Rabinatus?) were marriage records can be searched?

 


Re: Romania SIG #bessarabia #ukraine #lithuania (European Union) European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative Launches New Website With Surveys of 1500 Jewish Cemeteries #bessarabia #ukraine #lithuania

Harvey Kabaker
 

To clarify, as I understand the article at https://www.esjf-surveys.org/ , this project is about researching the cemeteries' history and documenting their needs for preservation. However, individual burial sites will not be photographed (except perhaps to show current conditions), nor will personal data be extracted from headstones or historical documents. In other words, this is a cemetery project, not a genealogical project. At first I feared they would be duplicating some work already done or in progress by SIGS or research divisions.


Re: Divorce Among Jews in Poland #poland

Harvey Kabaker
 

Wendy, you don't mention whether you've checked the JRI-Poland database for marriage, divorce or birth records for them. That would be my first thought. Good luck.
Also, the census taker may have assumed he was married at that time, or your relative didn't want to say he was divorced.

Pogrom Documentary Film #events #general

LeeAnn Dance
 

Two years ago my colleague Cliff Hackel and I released My Dear Childrenthe first-ever documentary about the anti-Jewish massacres in Eastern Europe following WWI.  Unfortunately, it’s a period of history that is little known or understood, despite the fact that pogrom scholars today consider these massacres to be a precursor to the Holocaust just 20 years later.  Just after the film’s release, JewishGen hosted a screening of My Dear Children at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in NYC.  Now this award-winning film is in its second year of distribution to public television stations nationwide through American Public Television and has reached more than 75% of US TV households.  Yet we know many still do not know about this piece of history shared by so many.  Cliff and I believe this is an important story that needs to be heard loud and wide.
 
During the lockdown, we are offering a stay-at-home digital download of the film for just $10.  The offer will go away when the lockdown lifts.  
 
Just this week, I received this email from someone who discovered the film while doing research on Ancestry.com:
 
"Thank you for one of the most extraordinary and powerful experiences I have ever had. The film you made is exquisitely done, and as a theatre professional (producer, dramaturg, director) and academic, I have the judgment to see how much craft as well as intelligence was used to shape an important story. 
 
I'm sure many people have said what I’ll say: This is my history about which I knew almost nothing. It means a great deal to me to understand where my family came from, and to consider what it means to be Jewish. My family largely repudiated Judaism and I internalized their disinterest, or perhaps even repugnance. I know I will watch this film many times and will encourage my friends and family to see it as well.”   Susan Jonas
 
To see a 12-minute piece of the film and to get your digital download, follow this link:  https://www.mydearchildrendoc.com/screen-the-film/  
 
That page will also link you to the little book that inspired the film.
 
And if you’re interested and want to get a group together, talk to me about a Zoom Q&A.  I know you will have lots of questions after seeing the film, and I hope you find it informative and meaningful.

Searching for Hannah STATNEGROSH, probably from Teoofipil  or Kremenets area.  born 1854, married to Avram Wagner (or Vagner), in New York by 1895. Anyone familiar with the name STATNEGROSH, which is said to mean “not a penny” because her father had a krechma (saloon) and wouldn’t give peasants any credit; it also could mean a pauper.
