BENGELSDORF #general

Morton BENGELSDORF emigrated to New York >from Poland.
He was born Nov 19, 1912. His parents were Zelik Suja
(Simon) BENGELSDORF, born Dec 29, 1879 in Poland and
Feiga LEIBIK, born about 1888 in Stawiski Poland.

I know they had children Morton (don't know his
Yiddish or Hebrew name), also daughter Neche (Nellie)
born in Ostrow Mazowiecka and Icek (Isaac) also born
in Ostrow.

The family lived in Brooklyn NY.

I am seeking information about this family. Morton
married into my husband's GORDON family.

Any connections would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

GRUZINSKY/SHAPEAREY/PAUL #general

Paula Eisenstein Baker
 

Dear listers,

I am posting the scattered pieces of information I have about three
brothers named GRUZINSKY or SHAPEAREY or PAUL in hopes that someone will
recognize a part or all of the picture.

My maternal great-grandfather was one of (at least) three boys born
between ca. 1851 and 1866 to Joseph haLevi and Anna (Yosef + Chana) in
Kovno guberniia (Lithuania; I don't know what town--possibly
'Auguschan', which I have not located). The family name may have been
GRUZINSKI (or some variation, e.g., GRODZINSKY) or SHAPEAREY (or some
variation).

son 1) Meyer Ber (haLevi) GRUZINSKIE (the name and spelling he used),
born ca. 1851, my mggf. He arrived in Newburyport, Massachusetts (near
Boston), ca. 1887 and sent for his wife (Peshe KONACHEVSKY) and their
only child, Chaya Gittel/Gertrude (my grandmother), soon thereafter.
They moved to Boston before the turn of the century and to New York in
1903 when Gertrude married Bernard G. Richards (Dov/Ber haLevi
Rubinowitz), my grandfather. Meyer Ber died in the Bronx, NY, in 1936.

son 2) Pesach Aaron (haLevi), born ca. 1866. He arrived in Boston >from
England or Scotland in time to be married in Boston 3 January 1896 (to
Esther WARSHAFSKY) and died in Boston in 1940. He and his wife had two
sons, Sidney (b. 1896) and Robert (b. 1898). I have NOT found the record
of his arrival in the US, but I can document the marriage, the births of
their children, and his Hebrew name (provided by his granddaughter).

In the US, Pesach Aaron used the name Henry PAUL, but in a Grand Lodge
of Scotland document dated 12 February 1890, he was using the name Paul
SHAPEAREY. (A grandson has that document.)

Henry PAUL/Paul SHAPEAREY was definitely my ggrandfather's brother.
After my mother and father visited England in 1936, P/S wrote my mother
that if he had known about her trip, he would have put her in touch with
cousins there (I don't know whether the cousins were actually in England
or in Scotland). And in 1940, just days before he died, P/S traveled
from Boston to New York to visit my mother and one of my uncles: a
letter >from my uncle describes the visit.

son 3) supposedly Misha (Hebrew name unknown). Two instances of the last
name
SHAPEAREY appear in Scottish records, the first of whom might be Misha:

"Morris SHAPEARY U 23 M Poland, Picture Manufacturer" (slight variation
in spelling) appears in the Glasgow Census of 1881, boarding at 157 Holm
Street in Barony, Lanark, Scotland.

Another SHAPEARY appears in the 1891 census: "Philip M 23 Rathven/Banff."

I do *not* know whether either of these men is part of the
same family.

Please send any suggestions/clues/information directly to me at
eisenbak@.... A similar message has already appeared on both the
Great Britain lists. Please excuse multiple postings!

Lord Edmil(?) #hungary

Sam Vass <SVass@...>
 

The 1828 Trencsen census in Benyov & Urbanov (synagogue in Vag
Bestercze) 1828 Lajo(s) Vajder has the following note:

"Arendator Edmilli dominalis" which translates as Tenant of Lord
Edmil (?)

An Italian gentleman has kindly offered the translation shown. My
question is whether anyone knows if there was a Lord Edmil in the
village shown.

Yes I can. The 1862-1895 records are kept in Ungvar (Uzhhorod, Ukraine).

Is very very difficult to have access to any records there.

Dr. Erno Schwarcz, Miskolc #hungary

Giselle Bodziony
 

Dear Genners

I read a couple of days ago that the topic was set to the deportataion of Jews >from Miskolc.
Therefore I would kindly ask if there is somebody who survived the deportation of June 12, 1944 - or knows anything about it or could tell me something about the following persons: Dr. Ernö Schwarcz, Miskolc, lawyer, 59 years of age; his son, Endre Schwarcz, 17 years old at that time. Both were deported that day - and under not know circumstances they managed to take refuge to Budapest. Both were killed in Budapest in December 1944. Dr. Schwarcz' wife, Erzsebet Schwarcz, was also deported in June 12, 1944 and finally transported to Lichtenau. She died there in 1945. Is there anybody who might tell me something about her?
Dr. Ernö Schwarz was my grandfather.

Thank you very much for your help.
