ViewMate translation request - Russian #translation

NormK12065
 

I've posted a vital record in Russian for which I need a translation. It is on ViewMate at the following address
https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM96154
It is an entry from a town population register. I believe the surname to be Wagenheim listing the head of household and family.
I would appreciate a complete translation.
Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.
Thank you very much.

Re: For researching ZIONTZ family - seeking a contact person for the Galil Genealogical Society in Israel #holocaust #israel #poland #russia #belarus

David Ziants
 

I already can update the forum a little bit of progress that I have made here with regards to researching the ZIONTZ family who is the subject of this thread.

First of all, have already been informed by email that the Galil Genealogical Society in Israel no longer exists.

The name of the man with whom I briefly corresponded with 14 years ago can be exposed and is Samuel (Sam) ZIONTZ - he sadly passed away in 2014 (born 9th June 1926), and I found the death announcement at:- https://www.dignitymemorial.com/obituaries/dix-hills-ny/samuel-ziontz-5876384

The names of both Tali's parents appear, in Hebrew, on Tali's memorial at:- 

https://www.mizra.org.il/memorials/%d7%94%d7%93%d7%a8-%d7%98%d7%9c%d7%99/

(also can be accessed as: https://www.mizra.org.il/memorials/טלי-הדר ) 

On the memorial is also listed the names of her children and two grandsons - so I might try and locating some of these and contacting for more information - hoping that they might be able to help.

This is where I am now stuck.

In addition to his death index, I have found Samuel's marriage index as well as mention on public records. I do not, though find his birth record in New York (I have a subscription to MyHeritage records' search) nor do I find him nor his father, Morris, on 1930 USA census nor 1940 USA census. Samuel explicitly wrote that his "father, Morris Ziontz, came from Communitz Litovsk north of Warsaw Poland in 1923 to New York". (I think he means Kamenetz.Does anyone have some new direction here, that I can try? (I also have tried looking him up on ship manifests of that year period, but could not find.) One can find in census, a few children with name Samuel ZIANTZ (in it's various spellings) with father Morris - but none of these correlate with Samuel born 1926.

Many thanks in advance, if you are able to offer me help or advice.

Re: Looking for dads side #usa

rv Kaplan
 

Len Weinstein,

re:

I just recently found out my Weinstein side is from Kiev- or so I hope. My grandfather, Sam( Schmuel ) Weinstein and his brother Max ( Mendel ) I’m not sure about other siblings but pretty sure there were at least two others. Their Patents as far as I know were Kuppel Weinstein and Leah Ludmer. I can’t seem to find anything about them other than Max came to America first in about the 1910,s and I think Sam came here in around 1924 but he came thru Providence, Max came thru Ellis Island. 

Have you looked at censuses, births/marriages/deaths? Anyone naturalised? - JewishGen's Family Tree of the Jewish People, My Heritage, Ancestry, Geni?

One problem is that Weinstein can be spelt in different ways,  mis-spelt, changed to Winestone, or even Stone.  It's a challenge!

Good luck,

There are names on the columns. Most probably the founders. There is also a Young Minsker Friends Society in Mount Hebron in Queens, NY. My family is buried in that sections. They all came from Minsk, many are related and knew each other. Many groups formed burial societies and bought a section in a cemetery and sold plots to their members. 
Are you looking for a specific name?

Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Miami

The following event is done in collaboration with

Temple Beth Am Library’s Sunday Salon

December 5, 2021 at 10:30 a.m.

We are pleased to announce our cooperation between the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Miami, Sunday Salon at Temple Beth Am and the Sousa Mendes Foundation.

Shalom Uganda

 

Robert Jacobvitz, who serves on the Advisory Board of the Sousa Mendez Foundation and is the recipient the Aristides de Sousa Mendes Humanitarian Medal from the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation, brings us this fascinating author, Janice Masur.

Janice Masur grew up in a tiny, remote European Jewish community in Kampala, Uganda, under British Imperial rule, with no rabbi or Jewish infrastructure. And yet, this community of only twenty-three families formed a cohesive group that celebrated all Jewish festivals together and upheld their Jewish identity. Sadly, while Kampala Jewry made every effort to survive, it eventually failed and withered under the hot African sun. In Shalom Uganda: A Jewish Community on the Equator, Masur tells her story of living in this little-known Ashkenazi Jewish community from 1949 to 1961. Because so many Jewish communities were obliterated in the last century, she documents, remembers, and preserves Kampala European Jewry with all the respect that it deserves. Janice Masur lectures in London, England, Toronto and Seattle, Windhoek, Namibia and Vancouver. She delights in sharing the historical stories of her Jewish community.

Re: Brick wall finding my Great Aunt's descendents Rose Schwed Roth #hungary #usa

On Geni.com, there’s an Irving Henry Roth, son of Eugene and Rose Roth. His sister is named Ethel. But Ethel has a daughter whose birthname is Sharon Lee Witt and is married to a Horodner. So maybe your Sharon Lee is off by a generation. And Sharon’s son Matthew Horodner is the Geni member who entered these names. So you can write to him if you join Geni. Sounds like he might be your cousin.

Terkel or Terkiel? Help with two matzevos #poland

Bob Silverstein
 

I am working on the Terkel family from Krynki, Poland.  The American branch spells it Terkel while the Uruguayan one uses Terkiel.  In the attached matzevos, you see the two spellings.  Are they both right or what?  Are they both pronounced the same so the extra i or ayin is silent?  Can anyone look these up in Beider?  I would like to see what he has.

This is the family of Studs Terkel.

Thanks for the help.

If the boy on the left is a mature-looking 13-year-old and the one on the right is a baby-faced 26-year-old then I'm the queen of Romania. (P. S. I am not.)
So Bruce I agree, either the fourteen-year gap is wrong or this is not them.
