BIRNKRANT / FAUSNER, Poland, 19th Century #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I am hoping that I can get your help once again regarding my research
into my wife's family.

My wife's grandfather was Zisha (Sam) BIRNKRANT (1870-1938), born
in Sanok, Poland. He married Nentzia (Anna) LOWENTHAL (1886-1947), of
Brzesko, Poland. Four of their children were born in Sanok: Isadore
Louis (1904-1967), Saul (1906-1992), Harry (1909-1989), and Morris
(1913-1965). They immigrated to the United States in 1921. That year,
my wife's mother, Sarah (1921-2000), was born in Pittsburgh.

Zisha was one of four children. The others were Aaron (1878-1922),
Ethel (1866-1938), and Esther (1888-1952). Ethel married Abraham
MALLINGER (1864-1923), of Prusiek, Poland, and Esther married Max
MALLINGER (1875-1927). They also settled in Pittsburgh.

According to Zisha's death certificate, his parents were Isador L.
BIRNKRANT and Sarah FORSTAR. According to his sister Ethel's death
certificate, the parents were Isadore BERENKRANTZ (sic) and Sarah
FAUSNER.

I am trying to trace Isadore as well as other branches of the family
(which have some spelling variations of the last name) to the region
around Sanok. Some relatives lived in Olszanica, near Sanok, and others
lived in other towns in the general area. In addition, I am trying
to determine my wife's great-grandmother's name. I think it could be
FASNER, FAUSNER, FOSNER, FORSTAR, or something else.

Thank you for your help.

Sharing DNA info on Geni in Israel #general

Rashi Rosenzweig
 

Good Morning Jewish Gen Gang:

Just recently found out that those of us who use Geni in Israel are
unable to upload their DNA information onto their Geni profiles
because of an ordinance >from within Israeli law. There are other
countries on the globe who have the same rules as well as the State of
Alaska (the only state in the USA that has this rule).

Does anyone know who we can approach within the government and perhaps
petition in order to change this?

Wishing you all a great day.

Kind regards,

Rashi Rosenzweig

Rabbi YOSEF of Breznitz, 18-19th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to our family tradition one of our ancestors was a Rabbi
YOSEF of Breznitz. We don't know his family name (if he had one) and
what town exactly is this place, most likely in the area of Kremenetz,
but there are several towns with similar sounding names.

What we do know is that his wife was a daughter of a Rabbi Arieh ben
Rav Shmuel who were themselves Rabbis of Kremenetz and who were
descendants of Reb. Naftali KATZ (the "Smichat Chachamim") and the
Mahara"l.

Rabbi Yosef had a son Israel of Ostrov (a chosid of R' Yehoshua
Heschel of Apta) whose son Yosef married the daughter of the Admo"r of
Lechowitz, R' Aharon and Perl.

Would be happy if anyone can identify the town of Brezhnitz (above)
and if the above Yosef had a family name and what it was.

TIA

Yoni Ben-Ari,
Jerusalem

Mirel RUZIN, descendant of the Rabbi of Mezritch #general

Yosef Kaner <yosefkaner@...>
 

My father's mother's maiden name was Mirel RUZIN. The word in the family
back then was that she was a direct descendant of "the Rabbi >from Mezritch",
which may be referring to the Maggid of Mezritch. She would have been
born in the mid to late 1800s, probably 1860-1870.

Who has a detailed family tree of all of the Maggid's descendants on which
I might find Mirel Ruzin?

Thanks.

Re: Rachel Perl born in Budapest in 1934 #hungary

HungarianRoots
 

Michael,

I just talked about a similar case at the IAJGS 2016 conference in one my
talks.
What you could try is probate records for a family member (sibling?) whose
estate was administered after 1945, as the father and Rachel would have
inherited.
The best would be to find the father's death record and based on that, find
the probate record (his estate would have been inherited by Rachel).

BTW, Rachel is a name that Hungarians use as a civil name as well, but she
might have another name, too (Roza, Rozsi, etc.).

Brzozow PSA Births 1885-1907 Marriages #poland

Billie Stein <billie.stein@...>
 

I found marriage records for 3 generations of family members in the
Brzozow PSA Births 1885-1907 Marriages. Information is partial, but
the main missing item for my purposes is the year of the marriages.
There are no images attached, so I can't check that way. Is there any
way that I can find out the dates of these marriages?
