Westinitz? #general

Russell Johnson <russell.johnson1@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Thanks to some brilliant research done for me by Paul Cheifitz,
I now have a town of birth for one of my ancestors, Westinitz.

Unfortunately, I have been unable to locate this place though.
I believe that it should have been in Russia or Russian Poland
and wonder if it has been renamed?

If anyone knows where it is, I would appreciate it.
Many thanks for your continued help.

Best Wishes,

yields 62 results, one of which, in Lithuania, is a very close phonetic
match in its Polish form. Try it!

unfortunately deleted. Will that person please e-mail me details about her
PEARLMAN family in Belarus so I can determine whether I have any
information that could help. Thanks, Sy

Abraham LEVINSKY, Toronto, Ontario, Canada #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>
 

I am writing this in the home that someone in Toronto would be willing
and able to get me a copy of an obituary for me. I wrote to the
Ontario Jewish Archives, but have never received a reply to my
request.

I need the obituary for:

Abraham LEVINSKY, died Feb. 25, 1964, at Sunnybrook Hospital, Toronto

I know that the was the father of Alex LEVINSKY, the professional ice
hockey player, but I need more information about ABRAHAM not Alex.

It is known to me that Abraham served with the Canadian Sportsmen's
Battalion in WW1, and that he owned Dominion Printing Company. I'm
looking for information about Abraham's siblings, who I believe might
be listed in his obituary. We know that our family is related to
Abraham, but we're not sure just how.

Any and all assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Dear Moderator,

I understand that you culled >from the list only names that sounded Jewish.

Do you have the whole list and if you do, could you look up

Thank you.

Re Norman Wolken


Thanks for a perfect try
By a roundabout way I was put in touch with him last night and his
grandfather was my great grandfather, in other words he and my late mother
are first cousins.His father was one of the two sons of Leib Wolken referred
to in my mother's story on "Hole in the Heart".
Enjoy your time in Israel.

Introduction #hungary

DLebovitz@...
 

Hello fellow "hunkies." My name is David Lebovitz and my wife Diane and our
son Andrew reside in the Chicago area. My wife and I are both half
Hungarian. That means we are both always right and never compromise.
Fortunately(?) our "other "half ", (Litvak and Polish-no jokes please) lends
some levity to our wonderful son's disposition. He's a Ph.D. candidate in
Chemical Engineering at Northwestern Univ. He's single and smart like his
mother. Anyone with a single daughter or granddaughter in the area?
Anyhow, we have roots both in present day Hungary (KLEIN and BERNATH) >from
Gegeny (a small village located about half way between Nyiregyhaza and
Kisvarda) and also what today is Subcarpathian Ukraine. The towns we are
searching are Korolevo(Kiralyhaza), Vinogradov(Nagyszollos),
Drahovo(Kovesliget) and Ugyla. The surnames are LEBOVITZ(-ITS, -ITCH,
-VICS), VOLYVOLVICS(WOLF), ROS(Z)NER and ZOLDAN.
I have made two trips to Hungary and one to Ukraine. I have had good success
in the Nyiregyhaza Archive (bring chocolate candy) and hope to return next
year. Hopefully we are seeing the beginning of some cooperation in the
Carpathians as this holds the most intrigue for us.
Thanks for taking the time to read this!
Regards,
David Lebovitz

Hun. MUSEUM (long but interesting) #hungary

Tomer Brunner <tomerbr@...>
 

Dear H-sigers,
Many time the memorial museum of hungarian speaking jewry in safed
was mentioned in past messages. This time I want to add some new
information.
This is the biggest museum that deals only with hungarian related
history and culture.
The exhibition includes judaica, arts, photos and every day items
and covers pre-holocaust and holocaust times.
Today I visited there and got a 4 hours tour always with the
kind accompaniment of (at least) one of the managers, the
Lustig couple.
I was allowed to use their versatile library and found lots of
information on some family members.

One of the new thing is that the museum is now under computerization.
A touch screen operated computer is being entered data about
all the areas which our sig covers (so far only Hungary and
Romania was entered but hopefully the rest will be entered too).
The data includes the history, jewish community life, rabbis
and many other info about the required place.
The text is accompanied by photos of the town, its synagogue
and cemetery (a photo for each tombstone) - if available.
Regarding the last matter, the museum had hired a photographer
in Hungary who documents the cemeteries. -So for those of
you (Mr. louis Schonfeld and others) who do the same (and didn't
know that the museum also does it) - I think it would be better
if you can cooperate or at least contact the museum and decide
on photographing in different places or so.
Also computerized is the entire collection. Each item is cataloged
with details so you can easily ask one of the workers there to
find what items they have >from the town of your interest.
In the future, as Roni, the Lustig couple's son told me they
are planing to put their computer's database available on
the internet along with other info and links to related sites.

The museum gets every day bulkily envelopes with material from
all over the world. People usually donate material after a visit
to the museum were they see the excellent conditions in which
the items are kept in.
Many donations include family histories and trees (even some artistic
handmade ones), family photos, books, general items and even
things that you may think are worthless for the public (like
personal diary etc...).
Since there are many items and no room for all the museum will
soon move to a different home (only few meters away).
Let me use this opportunity to ask every one of you to check
if there is anything you can donate to the museum. I'm sure
that like I found in my grandparents's storeroom some yellowing
papers thus anyone might find something which would better be
preserved in the museum then being lost in our possession, in the
near future.
So if you have any interesting photo you can either give it to
the museum or make a copy of it and donate it- I, for sure,
will do so.

Well, although I live all my life in Israel it has been the
first, but not last, time I visit this fabulous museum.
Its open only 4 hours each day but it worth the 3 hours travel
each direction!

If you're going to visit there and want more info of how to
arrive, please contact me privately.

Hope it helps someone :-)
Tomer Brunner, ISRAEL.

mod.- dear Tomer and other interested parties. Like many of you, I like to do some things without celebration or announcement. However, lest you think that I am not a supporter of the museum or that we are competing with them in any way I should tell you that my last visit there in November 1998 "cost" me in excess of $1,000 to help them in their work. If Mr. Lustig and his family do have a plan for sharing information about Hungarian Jewish families he can count on me for at least another $1,000. Others are encouraged to contribute as well, either through the facilities of H-sig/Jewishgen or the UJA P.E.F. program (as I did) in order to get the tax benefit or they can contribute directly to the museum in which case they should verify the 501 (c) status.
