2. a collapsed horse is described as "gepeygert"
PEGER (pei - gimel - reish) = carcas > gepeygert = died
3. several groups of Jews are mentioned: shopkeepers,
butchers and "konyukhes"
dont know, would help to see context and spelling
4. a large public space is called a "rebeleh"
dont know, would help to see context and spellingcould be derived from
Reshuth Harabim = Public Place.
The way you have it written it sounds like the deminutive of Rabbi.

 are no other rules for the transmission. It moves in the

Stan's correct explanation nevertheless ignores the fact that while the
designation of "Kohen" is simple and unambiguous, the term "brother" is not.
If, for instance, Harry Stein's gggm married twice, the second time to a
Kohen, Harry's ggf could well have used the surname of his stepfather and
regarded his half-brother as a brother, but that would not make him a Kohen.

Searching: David PERSKY (former SU to USA, 1925) #general

Alan H. Rosen
 

I am looking for descendants of David Persky who emigrated to the United
States >from the former Soviet Union in approximately 1925. His mother was
Liya Lev and his father was Iosef Persky. He was probably >from Minsk or
Moscow.

The search objective is to reunite a family that has been split for about
70 years. When David left the former Soviet Union, all contact with his
family was lost. Now that the country is more open, relatives would like
to make contact.

Please let me know if anyone out there can help.

Searching: ADLER descendants (Kelme to Israel) #general

Roy Ogus <ogus@...>
 

I am trying to locate the descendants of a family that lived in Kelme,
Lithuania, prior to the Second World War.

The family name was ADLER. The family owned a bakery in Kelme, and also,
the Jewish library in Kelme was located in the ADLER house just before the
War.

The father of the family was apparently active in the Zionist movement, and
the father served for a long time as a member of the "Parents Committee of
the Tarbut School".

I'm not sure how many children they had, but I do know of two daughters.
Esther made aliyah to Israel in the early 1930's. Before the outbreak of
the War, a second daughter, Leah, lived in Kovno. At the start of the war,
she was put in the ghetto, and then sent to a concentration camp in
Germany, with other Jews >from the Kovno Ghetto. She went through the
tortures of the Camp, but miraculously, managed to survive the war. After
the War, Leah, went to Israel, and apparently was living in "Holon".

I presume the rest of the family perished with the rest of the Kelme Jews
in the Holocaust.

I would like to find out whether Esther or Leah are still alive in Israel,
or whether I could make contact with any of their families. I
unfortunately have no further information as to what their married names
may be (presuming they did marry), so this posting is somewhat of a long shot.

At any rate, if anyone can help me locate Esther and/or Leah ADLER or their
descendants, I'd appreciate hearing >from you.

Thanks,

I'm answering myself to let you know that I received about 20 consistent

refer to a woman's maiden name. Thanks everyone!
