Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Re: Chelsea, MA Census #lithuania

All the discussion of the 1920 census for Chelsea, MA, which listed residents
as having come >from "Kovna" prompts me to comment about what a fortunate --
and unique -- situation existed with that census.

The official listing under "Place of Birth" was supposed to be only one's
country of origin.

I also have a page >from the 1920 Chelsea census containing the listing for my
father's first cousin, Samuel Berry (born Shmul Bastunski). On that page the
gubernia of origin is listed for almost all residents -- Vilna, Minsk, Volina
(Volyn), etc.

The enumerator was Florence Richmond, who, I have been told, was a teacher in
the area. Let's remember her warmly for bending the rules.

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Fwd: Searching RUBINSTEIN/ZAK/BURSTEIN/MILNER of Vilna #lithuania

Seflaum@...
 

I am eagerly searching for a missing branch of my family. There are only 3
known family members of the RUBINSTEIN/ZAK/BURSTEIN/MILNER family who survived the Holocaust. My greatgrandfather's daughter by his first wife was Chana (or Anna) RUBINSTEIN, who left Vilna at ~age 16-18 yrs. and immigrated to the U.S. prior to WWI (~1912 -1917). I am attempting to complete a family tree and find Chana and her family.

Mendel RUBINSTEIN (had a brother and sister?):
with 1st wife, had daughter Chana RUBINSTEIN
with 2nd wife, Chaya Raiza KOWARSKI (2 brothers?), had four children: Frieda (married to Mr. MILNER-2 children), Ella (or "Elke", married to Lipman ZAK-2 children), Aba (married to Sonia-2 children) and Fania.

Contact was lost with Chana RUBINSTEIN after she left Vilna. Mendel died
before WWI or WWII. Chaya Raiza KOWARSKI RUBINSTEIN and all of her children
and grandchildren (except two) were killed in the Holocaust.

Itzchak ZAK was married to Hadas Judis and owned a crystal and lamp shop in
Vilna. Their six children were: Yosef, Frieda (married to Mr. BURSTEIN-4 children), Mayer, Lipman, Golda and Leibe. Yosef was a theatrical director, Leibe was a travelling salesman, and Lipman had a fruit store. One of Frieda's sons survived the Holocaust.

I would be very grateful to hear >from anyone to whom this sounds remotely
familiar.

Surname origination? DOBBERSTEIN/KRUGER #general

Karen M. Griffin <kareng@...>
 

I have recently found that my paternal great grandparents were Ed D.
Dobberstein and Pauline Kruger. A close friend who is Jewish suggested
that they may be Jewish names. Their daughter (my grandmother) was a
German Lutheran born in Poland. Just when I think I am getting the
information I need, it becomes more complicated. Is this possible? Could
my great grandparents have been Jewisdh? and How do I verify this?
Thanks for any help you may be able to provide,
Karen Griffin

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Assoc. of Lithuanian Jews Gala Celebration Announcement #lithuania

Joel Alpert <alpert@...>
 

Below is an announcement >from the Association of Lithuanian Jews in Israel of
a Gala Dinner in Celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Rebirth of
Israel


Place: Ramat-Gan, Israel

Date: September 27, 1998

ASSOCIATION OF LITHUANIAN JEWS

We are the witnesses to a unique event in the history of the Jewish people
and the whole world.


A nation exiled >from its homeland, dispersed and persecuted for almost
2000 years,

Stubbornly clinging to its beliefs and traditions, reestablished its
sovereignty over its ancient homeland. A tradition of submission,
nurtured in the Diaspora, was replaced with self respect and self
reliance. Israel, a modern dynamic country has reemerged on the rocky
barren hills and sandy shores of the Mediterranean. It was able to grow
and flourish in spite of the lack of natural resources and the enmity
of its neighbors, using brain and brawn to cover the deficiencies. It
has become the pride and the shield of the Jewish people all over the
world.


Fifty years have passed since the extraordinary miraculous event. We,
the generation of rebirth, have decided to commemorate that special
occasion by convening a Gala Dinner for Lithuanian Jews >from all over
the world, to take place in Israel on September 27, 1998.


The event will take place at the Kefar Hamaccabiah in Ramat Gan, it
will include a full course dinner, a special program, and an additional
experience of renewing acquaintances among people with a mutual
background in our beautiful country.


Total cost per person $60.00.


Should you decide to join us (hopefully), we would appreciate you
sending a certified check in said amount, payable to "The Association
of Lithuanian Jews in Israel" to the address: 1, David Hamelech Bld.
Tel-Aviv 64953, Israel.

Hoping to see you soon in Israel, I remain



Sincerely Yours

Joseph A. Melamed

Chairman

P.S. We are also planning a one day conducted tour of
Jerusalem on September 24. This tour will visit the main attractions of
the Holy City and we hope to have you take part in this very
interesting and educational experience. The cost of this tour will be
40.00$ including transportation and lunch.
