Yes I am pretty sure there is. Write to Daniel Wagner or Kamila Klauzinska. I spoke to him two years ago at the Warsaw IAJGS conference and he then sent me pictures of my ancestors' gravestones.

Re: Members of A Feld Family #general

Isme Bennie

I had FELD relatives living in an apartment in Far Rockaway NY in the 1960s. I was given the connection to them by my family in South Africa. After I moved to the US (Manhattan)  I contacted them. An older couple (60s?) who had a married son with a child He had been killed in an accident. Also a daughter living in California. I visited them occasionally but never knew our actual relationship, and I do not remember their names. After I moved to Toronto, I let the connection go. I was not as interested in genealogy  then as I have since become. I hope this gives you a start and I would be pleased to know if you can establish who your FELDs are and if we have a connection. Regards, Isme Bennie

Information on Great Grandmother GLAZER Family #lithuania


I'm trying to find information on my great grandmother, Rose Rebekah GLAZER KLINE Lepman (Lipman). Immigrated from Lithuania, was widowed before my Grandmother was born in 1895, then remarried a man by the name of Lipman or Lepman. Spellings are all different. 
I have some documents that I have gathered but don't know how to proceed further to track down further information. I'm also trying to determine if my Grandmother was one of 4 children or one of 5. There are rumors that she had an older sister that had been ostracized from the family and we would like to determine if this is a rumor or fact and to track her/family down.
I have attached findings (I think all 40 items uploaded?) that I have so far. Can anyone help me ?

Dear Stan,

According to my info, Nechama K. (aka Nislah) was the grand-daughter of Shaul Wahl K. via his son Meir Moshe K.She married a different Moshe HaCohen Katz,(1570-??) ben Peysakh Yehuda, who is not the one who was Dayan of Frankfurt. The Dayan Moshe HaCohen (1550-1620) ben Meir Ephraim married Keileh Bingen.

This is I believe the one you are looking for:

Good Researching,

Gospitalna Street in Minsk #belarus

Carl Kaplan

My grandfather came through Ellis Island in 1913. He put down his address as Gospitalna ul. 21 Minsk. At least that is what it looks like to me (see attached). Is there still a Gospitalna Street in Minsk? How can I find out if there was such a street in 1913? Thanks.

Re: Why would my Grandfather travel under his older brother's name? #names

Steven Usdansky

My 24-year old grandmother came to the US at age from what was then Russia in 1914 using the passport of her 19-year old sister. Her ship sailed from Rotterdam on the day Russia entered WWI. It was an age thing, but I never understood why a 24-year old might not be admitted to the US but a 19-year old would, especially since there were other family members in the US already. When my grandmother's sister eventually came to the US with her four children in 1933, it was under her married name and with a Polish passport.

Another possibility for Nishene, Russia is Knyszyn, which is 26 km NW of Bialystok, Poland.  The "sz" in Polish is pronounced like "sh" in English.

Don’t miss the next presentation in our series of JewishGen Talks webinars, with our speaker, Dr. Stephen P. Morse.

From DNA to Genetic Genealogy: 

Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask.

Wednesday, July 15, 2020

3:00 pm Eastern Time (New York)

The study of genetics that started with Gregor Mendel's pea experiments in 1865 has now entered the genealogy field with Megan Smolenyak's coining of the term "genetealogy" in 2000. To understand the genealogical aspects requires an understanding of some of the basic concepts. 

This talk introduces genes, chromosomes, and DNA, and goes on to show how DNA is inherited. That knowledge of inheritance can be used for finding relatives you didn't know you had, learning about your very distant ancestors and the route they traveled, and determining if you are a Jewish high priest (Kohan). 

Examples presented include Genghis Khan’s legacy, the Thomas Jefferson affair, and the Anastasia mystery.

Stephen P. Morse is the creator of the award-winning One-Step Website; Recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies and the Award of Merit from the National Genealogical Society; Best known as the architect of the Intel 8086, which sparked the PC revolution 35 years ago.
