Seek Help In Locating Death & Obit For Reva/Ruth FAIKES/FAJKES-NY #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello To All

I am hoping someone out there can help me. I am trying to trace the
wherabouts and death of my grandfathers mother(my great-grandmother).
She is listed on the 1930 census with her daughter. Her name was
spelled Reva, but it could also be spelled as ruth or rwya. On the
census for 1930 in new york she is listed in her mid 50's and widowed.

She was residing with her married daughter Rose Friedman & husband
Aaron. She was also listed as head of household. I have never been able
to find any trace of her in my searches. I believe they were living in
brooklyn. My grandfathers name is Milton FAIKES and his sister was
rose. His sister came to america in 1922, followed by the mother 1929.
Then my grandfather came here in 1932.

Any help and advice is appreciated.

Relatives safe and backing up research #general

For those that wish more information, go to www.houstonjewish.org,
the website of the Houston Jewish Federation, which is coordinating
help for Gulf Coast Jews (not just in New Orleans) impacted by Katrina.
The New Orleans Jewish Federation is now based in the Houston Jewish
Federation offices.

We found out yesterday that our cousins >from Kenner, LA, whose home was
2 blocks >from the lake, all made it out to their daughter's home in Dallas.
Some 44 people, ages 1-64 (grandparents, children, spouses, siblings,
grandkids) are safe there in that one home, although they got out with only
important papers and one change of clothes (expecting to go home the next day).
All the kids are already enrolled in school, a first step in bringing some
normalcy to an abnormal situation. Although none of them have homes,
businesses or jobs to return to, they are safe and sound, albeit crowded
for the time being. Luckily, they are a very close family. Just imagining
the logistics of having 44 people in one home every day for what may be
months is impossible to visualize.

We certainly include in our prayers all the Gulf residents impacted by
Katrina, and salute Texas for doing so much.

And at this time, although not to take our attention off the immense human
suffering, it is appropriate to remind researchers to make back-up copies
(electronic, disk, hard copies) of their work. Make copies and send them
to family in different places. One never knows what may happen.

With best wishes to everyone whose family and friends have been through this,
with the hope that those separated will soon be reunited, and with thanks to
the communities which have welcomed those in need!

Seeking Information On Samuel Or Louis MENDELSON From New York #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello To All

I am seeking any information on my MENDELSON ancestors. Is there anyone
out there who may have known them or are descended >from them. Samuel &
Louis Mendelson are siblings to my great-grandmother
Anna(Mendelson)Rakoff. My great-grandmother died in 1980. I am trying
to find the death date of Samuel/Sam Or Louis. I don't have a lot of
information to go on. I believe that Samuel probably died after 1949,
for I believe he is in the photos of my grandmothers wedding in new
york in june of 1949.

I also have naturalization papers on my great-grandmother >from 1958,
and both Louis & Samuel are listed as witnesses. My problem is I know
they lived and died in New york but not where or when. I do know that
Samuels wife Is named Emma. Also what makes it more difficult is the
spelling of the last name. I am not sure if they spelled it as
mendelson or mendelsohn. When I look in the social security death index
for Samuel I get too many possibles.

So I am seeking help >from anyone who may have known them. My
great-grandmother and her family lived in Brooklyn, so perhaps her
brothers did as well. According to my great-grandmother's social
security application her parents were listed as Max & Baila Reva
Mendelson. All advice and help is appreciated. I believe they were all
originally >from russia possibly minsk.

IGS Tel-Aviv Branch & SIG Germany & SIG Eretz Israel - "The Missing Identity of Hildegard Dondorf #general

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

Rony Goland is a lawyer and notary who helped Hildegard Dondorf find her
identity. Hildegard arrived in Palestine in February 1946 as a little girl on
board a ship. She was taken to a kibbutz and grew up not knowing who she is,
who her parents are or where she came from. During the years she tried to
find her identity, but came up with nothing.
About fifty seven years later she met Rony Golan, who revealed her true
identity and much more.

The meeting will take place on Monday September 12, 2005 at Beit Hatanach,
16 Rothschild Blvd. Tel-Aviv, at 19:00. The meeting will be in Hebrew. 20
shekel entrance fee for non-members. You are cordially invited to use our
library which is open >from 18:00-19:00, and consult other members about your
genealogy quests.

IGS is starting a new project of computerizing the 1928 Pinkas Bogrim of
Haifa. These lists are not the same as the 1922 census but do include
addresses. The list include only adults of voting age. A description can be

Hi,

I do not believe that these people came >from somewhere else as there are
none of them anywhere else, at least so far.

If one accepts that most Jewish families had to adopt "western" family names
at around the time of the early 18th century, then I have to believe that
these folks, apparently a JaKob Podwinecz, living around 1725 took a name
having to do with some geographic connection. Maybe he just walked by the
place and liked the name better than what was on the list.

The fact there are only Podwinetz near to where there is a place called
Podwinetz suggests that this is the case.

Peter Bakos writes in his posting entitled "Mlada
Boleslav Cemetery": The Freiherren von Waldstein
owned 20 towns in the area of Mlada Boleslav/Jung
Bunzlau], one of which is called Podwinecz but which I
cannot find on any map. I am fascinated by the
connection [with my PODWINECZ family] but have no idea
if there were Jewish people living in that village.

The Kreis surrounding the Bunzlauer Kreis are the
Bidschover, Leitmeritzer and Kaurzimer Kreis.

I have checked the 1793 Jewish census of Bohemia for a
village of that name in the four Kreis named above and
it is not listed. One has to presume, that in that era
at least, there were no Jews living there. This is
confirmed by the fact that the village is on the
comprehensive list provided by Felix Gundacker on our
own website:

http://www.jewishgen.org/bohmor/towns/gundframe1.html

There is a Bohemian village with a name closely
resembling *Podwinecz* in the Leitmeritzer
[Litomerice] Kreis mentioned in a commercial website,
which because of prevailing Jewishgen rules I cannot
list here:

Former spelling of the village: Podiwin
Current spelling of the village: Podvini
Parish attribution: Zitenice
Start of Vital Statistics: 1708/1708/1708
Former Parish attribution: Litomerice dek
1626/1626/1637
Former judicial denomination and archives: (Bohemia &
Moravia only) Litomerice

You can also search the website with "PODW" which
brings up a few other choices but they seem less
likely.

I found an interesting website about the regional
archives in Zitenice which can be traced back to an
Imperial sanction of inheritance of the trust of Count
Vaclav Eusebia of Lobkovic in 1677. These archives
will probably contain much information about
Schutzherren and Schutzjuden in some of the less-used
collections which are stored off the premises of the
Zitenice castle.

Frank Eisinger has also submitted our Gemeinde View
for Podivin [nr Lundeburg/Breclav] in Moravia:

As with the villages of Kaunitz and Kanitz I wrote

to the Bohemian Podiwin/Podvini village, discussed
above.
