Re the surname TAWIL as a possibility: there is a Rabbi Jonathan Tawil in London whom you can find online.  He is of Sephardic origin.

Radziejow, Poland #poland

Ellen Gottfried
 

My grandfather, Abe SOLOMON emigrated in 1913 and went to stay in the
Bronx, New York with his cousins Wolf and Samuel LAZARUS. My
grandfather, as well as Wolf and Samuel, were born in Radziejow,
Poland. The problem I have is that I have a death index and a
marriage record index for Radziejow, and have checked JRI, and there
is no one with the last name LAZARUS listed in the town, or nearby
towns. Does anyone have suggestions for how I can find Polish records
for Wolf and Samuel?

Re: Family connection found #poland

I agree with Mrs. Sloan about not asking questions when we were young
but I'd also like to add that prior generations didn't always feel
easy about speaking about the difficulties they experienced. My
mother's sister committed suicide, Mom never told me, just said she
died. My grandmother wouldn't teach me to sew-memories of the Triangle
Shirtwaist Factory fire. If our ancestors came here for a better/safer
life, why dwell on the past? Obviously this isn't the only answer but
one many of us can relate to.

Re: Hungarian labor brigades - first person narrations #russia #hungary #romania #ukraine

Frank Dyer
 

In a lecture as part of a symposium on antisemitism, psychoanalyst Paul Ornstein M.D. shared a very moving story of his compulsory labor force service in Hungary. He made the point that those best able to tolerate the abusive conditions of the labor brigades were those with the strongest sense of Jewish identity. The more assimilated Jewish prisoners, who essentially identified as Hungarians, had poorer health and a higher death rate than those whose spirits were buoyed by Jewish identity and faith. I don't know if he ever published anything about those experiences or if anyone ever substantiated his personal observations on this issue in a more formal way, but it certainly makes sense.
Best,
Frank Dyer

Re: Ezdal / Ezdale / Esdaile - any ideas about the man's Hebrew name? #names #usa

sbloom@...
 

I can't say for sure, as I have never seen the name, but it looks like it could be an attempt to very much Anglicize  the name Ezekiel, which is itself an English rendering of the Hebrew name Yechazkel, which itself has many different renderings.

Google photos and probably Windows photos will also allow you to add information and to tag individuals.

Re: Family connection found #poland

jbonline1111@...
 

I am not sure that is it so unusual not to know distant relatives.  I never heard my grandfather speak of his youth or his family.  He was sent to America when he was 12 or 13 and lived with cousins, marrying one of them eventually.  My other grandparents were deceased, but my father, their son, never talked about his youth.  He knew of no members of his mother's family in this country, though he was partially raised by relatives of his father after both parents died. It was only after he was well past 90 that he shared a few details with me. I conclude that as kids, we don't ask much, because we are busy with our own peer group.

search siblings of Sura Rebecca Sztzernis (born around 1865) #poland

Danielle Czal
 

Sura Rebecca Sztezrnis was my great grand mother. she married Moshé Aron Kronental in Varsovie. She died around 1900. All daughter and sons came in Paris between 1912 and 1925. My great grand father also. I look for her brothers and sisters. I find one in Paris Abraham Sternis (1974- 1942). One of her sister married a Berliner, and another one a Glajchman. I would like to know their name, and how many siblings they were.
Thanks for help

research Maurice Leizerson, or Mojsche Leizerson or eventualy Levinson #usa #poland

Danielle Czal
 

I search the brother of my grand father. My grand father, who lived in Paris till 1911, called him "Maurice " (perhaps mojshe,)  Leizerson. He was born in Varsovie around 1886 (+ or_ 2 years). His father called Salomon or Szlama Leizerson; he married Sara Scheindle Chwast.
My grand father wrote that his brother was in New York in 1926. He was glove maker, at this time. He has a sister, that my grand father called "Lola"  (i don't know her polish or yiddish first name) younger than "Maurice", born in Varsovie in 1890 (+ or - 2 years)., also in USA. 
I found "Maurice" like a wedding witness in Paris in 1925. 
I don't know if he lived in New York and returned in Paris in 1925, then came back after to New york or in another place in USA.
If somebody could help me to find him,  it would be very kind.

Re: Vetting family tree submissions to genealogy sites for data soundness #general

oldarmymed51@...
 

None of the sites verify sources, or even require sources to be listed. I maintain two databases, one contains the tree with people for whom sources are cited, and one that has no sources cited or is "speculative."  Remember that even cited sources could be derivative sources such as indexes, which can often contain errors, or published genealogies, which may not cite any original sources. The uploaded trees are likely full of errors but still useful as "finding" tools.

Don't discount them just because of their potential for error, use them as sources of information in need of refinement.

Re: synagogue memorial plaques #JewishGenUpdates

Hi Nurit,

The spreadsheet can be downloaded from https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm  (I've attached a copy to this posting.)

BTW...if the synagogue has a digital listing of their memorial plaques and/or yizkor lists, I can probably help to reformat the entire list without anyone having to do any re-keying.

You can contact me at NAltman@...
