Hi Genners,

I'm looking for someone to peruse microfilms of the Montreal "Star" and Montreal

On Ancestry under the category of Canada, Ocean Arrivals (Form 30A),
1919-1924, I came across a listing for Pinia Baraban DOB 1905, Birth Place:
Pestohanka. Although the Point of Departure is Bucharest, Hungary his
citizenship is stated as: Russian.
http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=canadaoceanarrivals&so=2&pcat=40&rank=1&new=1&MSAV=0&msT=1&gss=angs-c&gsfn=pinia&gsln=baraban&uidh=916
(MODERATOR: http://tinyurl.com/mhl2r4t) He arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia 31
July 1924 on the ship Asia. His destination was Montreal and it appears he was
sponsored by the Jewish Colonization Association. Can anyone please tell me about
the association and if there is any other documentation that might be available?
Being my great-grandmother Chaia Golda (Baraban) Pinsk was >from Pischonka, I don't
think it is a huge leap to think the spelling of his birth place is inaccurate.
Chaia, for whom I am named after, died in Russia and then her children came to
Canada to join their father in Saskatchewan.

Viewmate request - Yiddish Translation (from Argentina?) #general

Carol Hochstadt
 

Fellow Geners,
I've posted a document in Yiddish (and possibly Hebrew) for which I
need a translation. It is on ViewMate at the following address ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM35611

I believe that it came >from a cousin in Argentina, but am not sure.
The main body of the message was pre-printed in red ink on the
original document. There is also handwritten text, which I'm assuming
is Yiddish. I have no idea as to whether this document has any
importance, and would appreciate knowing what it is...and what it
says!

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you very much for your help!

Seeking Kalman SPLAVER of Kovno who immigrated to South Africa #general

rayvenna@...
 

I am looking for a Kalman SPLAVER or his descendants.

The Poor Jews Temporary Shelter database has a "K Splawer" >from Kowno, age 29,
boot maker, traveling >from Libau to Africa on the ship Galician. "K" arrived
on Dec 14, 1902 and left on Dec. 18.

Kalman SPLAVER declared his intention to become a citizen of British citizen
in Pretoria, South Africa, on March 21, 1906. A document >from the Transvaal
Commissioner of Police, dated March 5, 1906 in Pretoria stated that he came
to the Transvaal in the year 1903 and that he was currently earning a
livelihood as a boot and shoe maker. It noted that he did not take part in
the "late war." It stated that he was married and had a son named Myer
SPLAVER (age either 0 or 6, not sure of the number). He lived in Cape Town
in February 1899 until the war finished, then went to Kimberly until June
18, 1903. His previous nationality was Russian. He gave his parents names
as Myer and Annie SPLAVER, also of Russian nationality. His birthplace was
given as Kovno, Russia. His age at his next birthday would be 33, placing
the year of his birth around 1873.

In February 1908, K Splaver traveled third class >from Cape Town to East London.

At this point he disappears completely. I have no idea what his wife's name
was, or what happened to the family. Can anyone help me out?

Thanks,

Searching for Bernard HABER family #general

Emilie Epstein <ekepstein@...>
 

Dear Editor

I am searching for the children or any relative of the late Bernard
HABER who lived in Great Neck, NY and died in 1995. His wife,
Florence who died in 2003 might have moved to Madison NJ. He was a
"cousin," but I don't know exactly how he was related to my
grandfather, Selig HABER. (Originally Heiber >from Narajow, Austria).

Bernard's father was Harry HABER, a telegraph operator, his mother,
Bessie JAFFE. They are buried at Old Montifiore Cemetery, in
Springfield Gardens, NY.

Bernard was a war photographer during WWII. His photo appeared in Life
Magazine when he was in Tunisa. He went on to become a film producer
for a major advertising firm in New York.

Among my attempts in finding the family I have written to neighbors at
the last known address, spoken to town librarians, schools, local
newspapers, his former employer, Who's Who in advertising, & local
funeral homes, with no results. Any suggestions to help me with my
search would be appreciated.

Searching for siblings Jacob POLLAK #austria-czech

danielat1@...
 

My great grandfather Jacob aka Jakub POLLAK born Bestin or Bechcin in
Bohemia in 1861 had eight siblings born in the many towns where his father
Yitzhak worked as a travelling Hebrew teacher. I have not been able to track
any of the eight and wonder if any other SIGGERS may have them on their tree
or come across them in their own research?
Do any of you know about Marie born Stresmir 1845 or Wolf aka Adolf born
Jistebnitz 1848 or Sofia born Bestin 1850 or Emilia born Bestin 1852 or Anna
born Wosek 1854 or Theresia aka Rosalie born Bestin 1856 or Eleanora born
Bestin 1857 or Lotti born Bestin 1859.
The POLLAK family moved to Prague in 1871 and lived in house 270 according
to the police records.
Their mother was Elizabeth POLLAK born Lochovice and died Prague 1890.
Yitzhak died also in Prague 1883. Jacob died in Terezin 1942.
