FRIED m. FRIED, Hungary about 1920 #general

Ari Dale <ari@...>
 

Apparently unrelated, Samuel Fried married Luisa Fried c. 1919-22
probably in Hungary, maybe in Szekeres. Vital record searches so far
unproductive. Any bells ringing now? Any suggestions?

VERGOTTINI - Italians who moved to South Africa #general

Caroline <cfb@...>
 

Hi,
I have recently been researching my gg grandfather - William Henry ADLER,
who was a Jew.
However, I now believe his wife, Cecilia Elizabeth VERGOTTINI (born 1854)
may also have been a Jew and wondered if anyone else was researching this
family?
With thanks,

Morton GOULD's Wife ? BANKS #general

S. Harris <jewishgen@...>
 

I am searching for the first name of famed songwriter/ASCAP executive
Morton GOULD's (ex-?) wife. Her maiden name was BANKS and she had a
brother, named Jimmy.

She may or may not be the mother of some/all of GOULD's four
children; Deborah, Abby, Eric and David. She was not among Morton's
survivors (GOULD was born on December 10, 1913 in Richmond Hills, New
York and died February 21, 1996 in Orlando, Florida. He is buried at the
New Montefiore Cemetery, Suffolk Couty, in West Babylon, New York. His
(former?) wife may or may not be buried beside him.

I haven't found an online index to the cemetery and if no one has
this information handy- I can't find any federal census information- I
may end up calling the cemetery director.

Thanks for any insight.

Lithuanian Pinkes & Brisk history #rabbinic

In the Jewish Encyclopaedia is mentioned about Rabbi Judah of
Tropau of Brest-Litovsk. It then states that his signature is in the

And in an earlier posting has enquired about rabbis in Brest
Litovsk/ Brisk, using as a source material which appears on the
entry for the city in the Jewish Encyclopedia (JE below).

The main source (as acknowledged by its author) for the JE entry is
the Hebrew work on the town entitled "Ir Tehiloh." It was published
in Warsaw in 1886 and its main author was Aryeh Leib Feinstein. The
author was aware of his own inadequacies as a historian and had
sufficient modesty to circulate copies or proofs of his ms to
several more knowledgeable historians. The latters' learned
responses occupy a major section of the published work.

Nevertheless, this book remains a mess. The list of rabbis of Brest,
quoted in the JE is taken as a block >from Ir Tehiloh. Some of these
are well known with documented dates and lives. Others - including
the above mentioned R' Yehuda of Tropau - are unknown to this
poster. Many are not in historical order, and some (e.g. Rabbi
David Oppenheim) have only a tenuous connection with Brisk. (Wealthy
rabbis were and are occasionally awarded the rabbinic equivalent of
honorary degrees, namely the title of Rav or ABD in a town, where it
was understood there was no chance of acceptance. Mutual benefits
could be derived >from such titles).

One of the respondents mentioned above states that in earlier times
no rabbi was appointed in Brest for longer than three years!

The topic of "The Rabbis of Brisk" awaits its definitive author.

In 1949, my great-grandfather, Rav Chaim Yitzchak KORB (ba'al
Netivot Chaim) came to Israel, to Jerusalem. A short time later
he married Yetl KRAUS, the daughter of Rav Yehudah KRAUS.

Does anyone have any of the following information:

a) When the marriage took place?

b) Any information on the KRAUS family?

c) Any information on any Hespedim connected with his passing away
in 1957?

Thank you,

Shoshana L. Boublil
