KLEINER surname #general

Yeruchem & Fraida Cohen
 

Dear Genners,

Sara Kleiner arrived in the US in June of 1899 and
listed her last residence as "Harasz."

My grandfather's last residence is also listed as Harasz
and I have been unable to find out what that town is
called today and where it is located.

If you are related to this Sara Kleiner and have
information as to what town this could be today or what
it would have been called in the past, I would
greatly appreciate hearing >from you.

Thank you,
Fraida Cohen

Latvia SIG #Latvia RE: Riga addresses?? #latvia

Rochelle Kaplan <rokap@...>
 

Dear Randi,

I'd suggest Mapquest, or buying current maps and doing overlay/comparison of
1900 maps. By the way, I just learned >from Aleksander Feigmanis, my
researcher, that my gggf, Jossel Kalman Gerson, age 65 (probably older
though) - mostly of Bausk (Bauska), but who was registered in Riga, lived in
1893 (though was not legally married to) Elke Michelson/Michelsohn, age 43,
and together they had a daughter Dobre Lea, age 5. In Bauska, where I was
this past summer, I saw and photographed a former liquor factory, owned by
Michelsohn, whose name is visible on the building in both Russian and
German. There were also Michelsohn graves, I think in Mitau (now Jelgava).
This is the only info I have on Elke Michelson. Aleks had previously told me
Jossel Gerson was married to Rahel-Elke Levinson, and they had 4 children,
one of whom was my ggf.

I will keep your name on file re: Michelsohn.

Rochelle Kaplan

From: Randy Wasserstrom

I am looking for the current Latvian names for Russian street names in
1900.
They are in Riga of relatives of mine -- Michelsohns!! Does anyone know how
to find this info???

I am researching the Lutzin, Latvian Druians who arrived in South Africa
in 1897, on behalf of one of the families who are still here.
from naturalisation papers copied at NAAIRS, David Druian's father was
called Michael and his mother Ada or Hilda. Would these fore names have
had Russian equivalents?
Any help would be most appreciated.
Thank you

Latvia SIG #Latvia Re: Jewish schools in Riga #latvia

Evelyn Waldstein
 

From: George Mason <gmason3815@...>
Can anyone tell me how many Jewish secondary schools there were in Riga
in the late 1930s? I know of the Rauchvarger school and the Ezra
school.
How many others were there and what were their names?
During the late 1930s Riga had many Jewish secondary schools. Besides
those you named there was the Iwrit school with teaching in Hebrew, the
Sabiedriska (with teaching in Latvian and German but among ourselves we
spoke only German), several Jewish high schools with Yiddish as the main
language of teaching. There were more. If you are interested I will send
you the full list of secondary schools. I only wish to point out that during
the last prewar 1940/41 school year the Soviet regime introduced many
changes to the Riga school system.
All this is subject of my present work "Jewish Schoolchildren and Teacher,
Riga 1920-1941. It is going to include Names, dates and places of birth and
other essential information about Jewish pupils who graduated different Riga
schools or whose education was interrupted by WW2. It is also going to
contain data about the teaching stuff of Jewish schools.
If you can give me the name and age of your Mozeson and Nathanson I may look
up for more information on the already existing part of the database.

Kossuth Ference cemetery sections #hungary

ARGould21@...
 

To Steve Stein and others:
My mother and her siblings were members of the Kossuth Association. They are buried in Block 7 of a Kossuth section in Mount Hebron Cemetery in New York. I also have an uncle buried in Block 6 in a Kossuth section in Beth Israel Cemetery in Woodbridge, NJ They were all born in Elyus, Transylvania (now Aleus, Romania)not far >from Cluj.
I have always wanted to do research on the organization, but have not because I have been busy with the IAJGS indexing project in the Newark, NJ cemeteries - where incidentally, I have found several "Hungarian" sections in Union Field cemetery (in Newark, not Queens): the Oesterricher Ungarische section and the Star of Jacob-Ungarische sections.

January 2004 update for Yizkor Book Project #hungary

Joyce Field
 

Happy Presidents' Day to All.

My apologies to all for the late update on additions to the Yizkor
Book site for January 2004. I was out of town during the time I
usually prepare this monthly report but the efficient volunteers for
the Yizkor Book Project continued to work and donors continued to
submit new translations. Without these two important groups the
translation project could not exist. I can never thank them enough.

During January we produced 6 new entires and 17 updates. They are
flagged in the alphabetical listing at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

New entries:

Pinkas HaKehillot Lita:
-Dotnuva
-Rumsiskes (Romsishok)
-Siluva
Pinkas HaKehillot Poland:
-Jagielnica, Ukr
Yidishe Shtet
-Dotnuva
-Siluva

Updates:
-Brzeziny, Poland
-Byarosa, Belarus
-Czyzew, Poland
-Dusetos, Lith
-Bedzin, Poland
-Gabin, Poland: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/gombin/gombin.html
-Gabin, Poland: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/gombin2/gombin2.html
-Gorodenka, Ukr
-Lida, Belarus
-Lenin, Belarus
-Losice, Poland
-Mlawa, Poland
-Oradea, Romania
-Ruzhany, Belarus
-Sosnowiec, Poland, volume 1
-Sosnowiec, Poland, volume 2
-Wyszogrod, Poland


There are many books yet to be translated, waiting only for an eager
volunteer to step up to coordinate a translation project. Our Yizkor
Book Project staff is available to help you through the
process. Please contact me if you are willing and able to coordinate
a translation project. Or, if you have Hebrew or Yiddish translation
skills, you might want to start by volunteering to translate a
chapter >from the Pinkas HaKehillot on your ancestral town. Informaton
at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/donation/ will explain part of
the process.

Many of our projects are fundraising projects. You can help by
contributing money to pay to have these books professionally
translated. The current fundraising projects are listed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.html.

Thanks again for all the help and support our readers have provided
to the Yizkor Book Project over the years. We hope that these new
translations will help you with your research.
