Is there any way to find records of a gggf records of service in the Czars

JACOBS Family of NY City #general

Sid Schwartz <sids@...>
 

I am searching for any information on the family of Joe JACOBS. He was
a boxing manager in the 1940's. Siblings were Caswell, Benjamin, Rose,
and Mae. Joe's father was Samuel Jacobs, a tailor on the west side.

To my knowledge none of the brothers or sisters had children. But,
perhaps there are other descendants. My mother whose maiden name was
JACUBOWIC (>from Hungary, later Czechoslovakia) was a cousin.

New Branch Added To My Family Tree! #general

JJG613 <jjg613@...>
 

Dear fellow Jewish Genners,

I am so pleased and excited to share with all of you the addition of the
SHENKER (Kiev, Ukraine) family to the GOLDMACHER family tree. After nearly two
and a half years I was able to add this family to mine in just about 30 minutes
on Saturday evening, October 24 by using one of the oldest known genealogical
tools -- marriage!

from our wedding announcement:
Karyn Shenker, 28, a daughter of Dr. Joseph Shenker of Brookville, N.Y. and
Mrs. Adrienne Price of Cliffside Park, N.J. and Jonathan Jeffrey Goldmacher,
29, the son of Dr. and Mrs. Joel Goldmacher of West Windsor, N.J. were married
yesterday at The Forrestal at Princeton in Princeton, N.J. Rabbi Eric Wisnia
performed the ceremony in which Cantor Stuart Binder took part.

As many of you know, the planning and associated events surrounding the wedding
put a number of requirements on my time that slowed my involvement in my
research, this newsgroup, and the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland project.
Now that "the big day" has come and gone, I will be getting myself up to speed
once again and promise to be more responsive and active.

Thanks to everyone for their support over the past few months. Karyn and I
look forward to a lifetime of happiness together. She is truly my soul mate
and no more genuine words on a Ketubah were ever written than (>from the Hebrew)
"I am my beloved and my beloved is mine."

Re: Are "Kalman" and "Klemens" the same name? #general

MBernet@...
 

In a message dated 98-10-27 13:27:12 EST, you write:

On a tombstone in Lithuania, the father of the deceased woman (died 1907)
is shown as "Moshe Kalman". I assume that Kalman is a given name.
Her great-grandson in Israel (born in Lithuania and with limited English)
said her father's name is Moshe Klemens.

Kalman is usually the name associated with the Hebrew, (originally Greek) name
Kalonymos, Greek for the more common Hebrew name ShemTov, (or Good
Name/Reputation). The name has a long tradition: At least one of the rabbis
of the Mishna was called Kalonymos ("of Socho"). There were a number of
Rabbis with that name in the middle ages, some famed for their liturgical
poetry. In later centuries the name was often rendered in a more simplified
form as Kalman--which of course sounded less "foreign." My uncle,
Kalman/Kalonymos Chameides, was the last communal rabbi of Kattowitz and died
in the Lwow ghetto.

The Hebrew spelling of Kalonymos is Kuf, Lamed, Vav, Nun, Yod, Mem, Samekh. It
can be easily misread as Klonims or Klemens. It is not unlikely that someone
with the Hebrew name Kalonymous should have an additional name such as Kalman
or Klemens or both. Of course the name could become also a family name. It
would not surprise me if somone bore all three names: Hebrew name Kalonymos,
first name Kalman, family name Klemens.

Which does not, of course, answer your question.

Dear Ken Mandel,
you may wish to contact the
Hamburg Institut f|r Sozialforschung, Mittelweg 36, D-20148 Hamburg, Hermann
Heer and colleagues.
They produced the exhibition and accompanying films and books 'Crimes of the
Wehrmacht' - in connection with which they interviewed many people and did
extensive research in and around the former White Russia. While the focus
of their effort was different >from yours, they have much material at the
Hamburg (Reemtsma) Institut and can be very useful in your work.
Another important source of information and a generally valuable contact
will be the Minsk Museum of the Great Patriotic War (the name of the
director escapes me at the moment). She is extremely helpful. Gave me much
important information and material for my work when I visited there a year
ago. They have valuable documentation on display and in their archives.
Pls don't think me presumptuous if I believe that you may need an
interpreter for your work there, and I would suggest a retired Soviet Army
officer who'd been stationed in Berlin for several years (four I believe) :
Valeri Berdiajew, Vera Horuschka Str 21-12, Minsk 123, Belarus, tel. 0172
3460 47.
Valeri is also a member of the Belarus Peace Commission and has been
enormously helpful to me and the group I was with when I saw him last year.
The eace Commission, also, has many contacts and material that would help
you with your research.
In exchange for all these people's services, may I ask that you and other
interested List members help the Peace Commission with much needed
medical/pharmaceutical material and clothes and other supplies donated to
the Belarus Peace Commission in Minsk?
They and other affiliated groups that I have worked with in Belarus are
assisting victims of the Czernobyl disaster... thank you!

Shalom Mr. Schonfeld.

My name is Kelly (Kalman) Modlin, a member of Kibbutz Shluchot and I'm
sending you this message on behalf of Esther (Eti) Ravitz, who is a member
of our Kibbutz.
Eti's roots on her mothers side are in Hungary.

She seeks information regarding her mothers sisters and herhaps brother,who
perished in the Holocaust.

The only information in her possession is as follows:
ZILBERMAN Ya'akov - Grandfather, occupation - Shochet. At some stage
emmigrated to Israel.
Ziberman Chana - Grandmother, maiden name unknown.

The ZILBERMANS had seven or eight children:- Eti has no idea as to whether
any of her Aunts were married.
Their names were as follows:-
Bluma - born 1900
Pesel - born 1902
Leah - born 1903
Golda Eti's Mother born 1905. Worked as seamstress.
Gitel - born 1909
Mindel - born 1914
Hindel - born 1916 ?
The ZILBERMANS hah a grand daughter - Hilda Sara - born 1926
Mordechai possibly a son - born 1893

She knows that the towns Szeged and Mako were mentioned in Family circles.

Eti and her sister Sarah are due to leave for Hungary next Thursday in
search of their Family Roots.

If it isn't to much of a problem could you give them some advice as how to
go about their search in Hungary?
Do you have any information or knowledge regarding the above mentioned
places?

My wife Pnina,( who is known here in Israel as a "Child with a Missing
Identity") and I are members of the Gallil Gen. Soc. and believe that we
shall have the honour of your presence at our next meeting which is due to
take place at Kibbutz Mizra.

Greater Access to WWI Draft Info @ Nat'l Archives in DC #general

deborah dworski <ddworski@...>
 

Within the past two weeks the U.S. National Archives in Washington, D.C.
has greatly expanded its microfilm collection of World War I draft
registration cards. All of the original registrations are housed at the
National Archives in Atlanta. Though all of the documents have been
microfilmed, up until now, very little of the collection has been
publicly accessible in Washington.

One caveat is that Washington does not yet have the finding aids often
necessary to identify the draft board of interest. Washington Archive
officials are currently copying the draft board maps used in Atlanta and
hope to have them available to researchers within the next few weeks.
Each state had its own draft boards most typically subdivided by cities
and counties--somewhat similar to a census enumeration. Within each
draft board, the registrants were arranged alphabetically by surname.
For heavily populated cities, the street address of the registrant is a
must. (City directories are an excellent resource.) The street address
can then be cross-referenced on the finding aids/ maps to determine the
corresponding draft board.

For a more comprehensive explanation and discussion of this genealogical
resource and its potential value to your own research, see the JewishGen
InfoFiles.

Microfilm reels of the WWI draft registrations in the following states
and territories are now available at the National Archives in
Washington, D.C. (microfilm series M-1509): Alaska, Arkansas,
Connecticut, Washington, D.C., Idaho, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland,
Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico,
New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Virginia,
West Virginia, and Wyoming.
