Extended family of Rabbi Mordechai ZACKHEIM-Pinsk, 19th cent. #rabbinic #israel

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My great greatuncle, R" Chaim Dov KANTOR, of Pinsk (Karlin) and
Zichron Yacov, Israel wrote in his diary that the Rabbi of Pinsk (or
Karlin) a certain Mordechai Leib of Ruzhin, was a relative of his
mother. Chaim Dov was a well known personality in early Israel
zionist history as a charedi settler in the ZichronYacov (near Haifa)
and as a mashgiach of the winery (Yekev) there.

Searching through the rabbinical personalities of the mid 19th cent.
in Pinsk and/or Karlin, I am almost sure that the unnamed (family)
Rabbi was Mordechai Leib ZACKHEIM.

To the best of my knowledge, ZACKHEIM studied at the Volozhin Yeshiva
and there is a family rumor that Chaim Dov's mother was somehow
related to the Volozhin family.

Does anyone knowledgeable regarding the extended ZACKHEIM family know
of a connection between Chaim Dov KANTOR and Mordechai Leib ZACKHEIM.

Alternatively, would anyone a theory who else-presumably a Mordechai
Leib (something) would have been the Rav of Pinsk (or Karlin) in the
mid 19th century.

TIA.

Wishing everyone a happy month of Shvat.

Re: Father and son with same name and what is correct name of grandfather? #names

jbonline1111@...
 

"...there is a note on the record that the “father is registered in Bobruisk”. Does this mean the father was still alive at the time of his sons birth?"  Is it possible that the father was both registered there and deceased? Perhaps someone can answer this question. 

Similar to Shelley MItchell's post, every first born in my family except has a name that starts with B, including me.  The other family's second born's name starts with B; the first born was named for the mother's deceased mother. The rest of us were named for my maternal grandmother, who died well before we were born.

The Jewish District of Krakow: Centuries of Change - Smithsonian Lecture #poland #education #announcements

finejeffy@...
 

I saw this announcement on the Smithsonian Website and thought it might be of interest to the group.:

Wednesday, March 9, 2022 - 12:00 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. ET

Despite centuries of prejudice, prosecution, and political setbacks, nothing could force out the Jews of Kazimierz—a district of Krakow in Poland established in the 14th century. Over the centuries, they built their lives, gaining religious and other freedoms along the way.  

In the years between the World Wars (1918-1939), many were engaged in scientific, educational, and cultural endeavors, and even began to participate in local politics. But World War II and the Holocaust spelled catastrophe for the inhabitants of Kazimierz, beginning with the gradual deprivation of rights and culminating in deportation and death in the camps. Only 10 percent of Kazimierz’s population survived. Today, it is one of the best-preserved Jewish districts left in Europe

Christopher Skutela, author and tour guide, highlights the district’s history and sites, beginning at Szeroka Street Square, anchored by Krakow’s oldest synagogue. Other sites include Nowy Square, where Jewish merchants once gathered; Podgorze, home to sculptural chairs that commemorate lives lost in WWII; and the enamel factory of Oskar Schindler, the man who saved thousands from the Nazis.

Re: Father and son with same name and what is correct name of grandfather? #names

Shelley Mitchell
 

Naming patterns are often confusing. We have a whole bunch of Ss down the line. Great grandfathers Szloma, Szymon, grandfather Zalman/Solomon, uncle Sidney, deceased 1st cousin Steven, living 1st cousin Steven, etc. The lesson : without being told who everyone was named after, it would be difficult to determine. It does help trying to match up deaths. For example, when my great grandmother died, my grandmother named her next born after her mother.

Research OSTROW family originally from Odessa / Kherson in UKRAINE who passed through Constantinople (Istanbul) in TURKEY #ukraine

Agnès COCHET
 

Hello everyone,

 

Who can help me find my great-grandfather Aaron OSTROW (OSTROV). He was born around 1868 in the ODESSA / KHERSON in Ukraine.

 

He would have married around 1893 with my great-grandmother KRAMER (KRAHMER,

KRAEMER) Feïga (Frida, Freida, Faega) born July 4, 1874 in ODESSA in UKRAINE where they would have worked as furrier.

Feiga died in AUCHWITZ on February 11, 1943, the day of her arrival at camp by convoy N °47 from Drancy.

 

To my knowledge, they would have had at least 5 children:

 

 

1 - Timotoni (Tonie), died in Auschwitz in 04/1943, married to LEIBOVITCH Yasha Avram born on 22-3-1885 in NIKOPOL in UKRAINE died in 12-1942 in Auschwitz (2 children Ida and Willy hidden by a priest in MARSEILLE then died in 1943.

 

 

2 - Chaïa (Charles) born November 17, 1896 in KHERSON in UKRAINE, married to HOZENKO Gesia born January 20, 1899 in NICOLAIEV in UKRAINE. He arrived in France in Paris around 1924 from TURKEY (BURSA or CONSTANTINOPLE) with his mother, his wife and 2 children (Maria born in 1919 and Chemouel born in 1921 in CONSTANTINOPLE) then obtained French nationality. Casquetier, he died in PARIS 20th district on November 18, 1957.

 

 

3 - Zina (Gilberte) born July 14, 1900 in ODESSA in UKRAINE, married with Paul FOURCROY around 1920 in CONSTANTINOPLE? Arrived in France ?

 

4 - Hermann (Germain), my grandfather born April 14, 1906 in CONSTANTINOPLE (ISTANBUL) in TURKEY.

 

Who can help me find his birth certificate?

 

He married in 1927 with Jeanne LEVY in COURBEVOIE in France (1 daughter). then divorced and remarried with my grandmother Nelly ABOUCAYA on May 10, 1937 in ALGIERS, ALGERIA (2 daughters).

he died on August 21, 1944 in ALGIERS without recognized nationality.

 

5 - Maria (Marie), born in 1907 in Constantinople ???

 

Here is everything I have been able to piece together for 37 years. If anyone can give me a clue of research, I would be very happy. Thanks in advance

Where is Syoninntzea? #romania #austria-czech #ukraine

Eric Mack
 

My great grandfather, Isaac Ehrlich, was born in Syoninnzea, Austria, in 1858, according to his British "Enemy Alien - Exemption from Internment" card,  (However, his British death record indicates he was born c. 1864.)   There is also some evidence he was born in what was occasionally the territory of Romania.

Does anybody recognize that town?  Could it possibly be Tsynyava also known as Tsineva, Ukraine?

Looking for my maternal relatives from Romny #ukraine #general

Shimona Kushner
 

My grandmother was born in the town of Romny (I think this is in the Sumy district).  Her father, Abraham Gordon, was married to Minna (Miriam)--don't know her maiden name.  Abraham owned a print shop in the town.  He and Miriam had three daughters:  Eda, Leah (Lyda), and Dorah.  Leah married my grandfather, Shimon Soloveichik and they moved to Poltava.  I think that Dorah also lived in Poltava after WWI.  She married a man named Miron and had a daughter named Milla. I searched the Jewish Gen lists but came up with nothing.  I assume that Abraham was born some time after the middle of the 19th century.  Dorah and Milla perished in WWII (my mother told me they were killed by the Nazis but I have no further information.  Can anyone give me any clues about how I can find information/documents about this branch of my family?  Please respond to my private e mail:  shimona@g.technion.ac.il

Re: Aaron Goetze (a.k.a. Aaron Adolphus) born in Berlin circa 1800--key witness in 1844 murder case #germany

Rodney Eisfelder
 

Alex,
to supplement my previous response, the marriage of Aron Goetze, aged 26 and Bella Goldschmidt, aged 23, took place in Berlin in 1825. I think the date is 23-Jan.
See: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS6S-DSW5-B?i=1655&cat=105476

familysearch.org have several different marriage registers for the Jewish community of Berlin, and the marriage you seek always seems to be in the last register you look at...

I hope this helps,
