Phone book solicitation #general

Don Gallard <dg2286@...>
 

I am researching the ROTHBLATT family, with all its variant spelling,
and am about to embark upon a mailing to all the people I found in my
"PhoneDisc" software with that last name. I found 135 listings, since
Rothblatt is not such a common name.

I am writing to see if anyone else has tried such a method for finding
family members and furthering their research. I would love to hear if
you felt it was a worthwhile endeavor and of any advice you might have
based upon your experience.

I was greatly interested when my CD-ROM, Soldiers Died in the Great War,
turned up Isaac SMALOVITCH, of the 10th (Hackney) battalion of the London
Regiment, born in Whitechapel and resident in Spitalfields. These
characteristics made him an obvious candidate for adding to my list of
Jewish servicemen and women who died in the war but are not recorded in >the Roll of Honour of the British Jewry Book of Honour. (etc. etc.)

This prompted me to mention that in 1915 Corporal Issy SMITH (born Israel
SHMULOVITZ) of the 1st Manchester Regiment received the Victoria Cross for
conspicuous bravery in the First World War. Smith came to Melbourne,
Australia in 1921; later he married in London and a daughter was born
there. A son was born after their return to Melbourne, and Smith died there
in 1940.

He was born in Egypt of Russian or Polish Jewish parents, and went to
England as a young boy, enlisting in the British Army aged 16.

Could this be the same man as Harold Pollins has written of?

Re: Zbaszyn #general

A large number of Jews of Polish extraction were sent to the Polish
border at Zbaszyn. Poland refused to accept them since it had passed
several laws disbarring Jews who were absent >from Poland following
Polish independence. Poland refused to let them in and Germany refused
to let them return. They remained for some time in the mud covered
refugee camp that was specially created for them. The international
press described the situation and the Jewish horror. Eventually, Poland
admitted most of these Jews and some were still in the area when W.W.II
started. Most of the Jews that made it into Poland were caught by the
Germans and shared the fate of Polish Jewry. Shalom Bill Leibner

Jewish Cemetery found in Zehdenick (Brandenburg;PRU;DEU) #general

Eberhard <etz.usenet@...>
 

According to a report in the Berlin newspaper "Der Tagesspiegel" (issue
of Dec 27th 1998) there is an organization in Zehdenick that found the
jewish cemetery of the town. The cemetery was founded in 1766 and closed
in 1898 due to a decreasing number of members in the jewish community.
The cemetery was destroyed in March 1933. The organization formed a
place of remembrance. Short time ago the place was opened with a
ceremony. The Brandenburg Rabbi and the cantor of the Berlin Jewish
community took part.

The organization in Zehdenick is called "Sachar / Erinnern e.V.".

Social Security Application translation/records for CBees #general

Helen Saltman <bhsalt@...>
 

Dear Jewishgeners,
I received my gmother and my uncle's social security application and
I need help translating.

I realize that there are often misstatements and other kind of errors,
but perhaps you can help me. My grandmother, Anna BERGMAN -first
husband's name) ZEFF--last husband's name) lists her birthplace as Godno,
Russia --although the first letter could possibly be a Y. In the stetl
seeker there seems to be many possibilities, but I tend to think that
Grodno (With an R) may be the place since Jews >from Grodno emigrated to
Malmo, Sweden according to a recent Avotaynu article. My mother was born
in Malmo. Where should I go >from here? I am waiting for the passenger
manifest for the Zeeland when my gmother and mother came to the US in
1909.

Other curiosities include the maiden name of my gmother's mother listed on
this form as: Bertha SECLGOF. I assume that this is somekind of phonetic
spelling used by my gmother, but what does it translate to. I tried the
data base and couldn't come up with anything that appears useful. Any
ideas?

My uncle Bernie BERGMAN lists his father as Hyman BERGMAN on his ss
application. My mother has listed him as Herman on a insurance form,
and my gmother lists her own father as Henry BERGMAN--since my gmother's
maiden name was supposedly SMIGELSKY, this was probably an error? On the
other hand Bernie BERGMAN gives his mother Anna's maiden name as "MILLER."
(I have seen this name on the other side of my family and am beginning to
think that this is the Jewish equivalent of Smith!) My uncle was a CBee
construction battalion) before W.W.II and was a prisoner of war in the
Pacific. Does anyone know where to get records--was this considered
military duty, and if so, what branch of the military?

I have no one left in the family to whom I can ask questions

I have been trying to get Herman (Henry? Hyman?) BERGMAN's death
certificate as well as Bernie BERGMAN'S birth certificate--apparently my
gfather died the same year his son was born. As yet the New York archives
division on Chamber's St. hasn't even cashed my check and it has been
close to three months. Is this what other's have experienced or should I
assume that my letter was lost?

Part of my impetus to research my family is to trace an inherited kidney
disease.

Any suggestions to determine the correct names and to facilitate my
research will be very welcome. At present time, I need to research at
home by computer, phone, or snail mail, since I am unable to go to the
libraries, etc.

Thank you,

Re: Searching: LURIA #general

Alan Kolnik <alank287@...>
 

I just noticed the correspondence about the LURIA family. I
have some information which may add a little more to the
story.

I am distantly related to a South African family which
includes many LUNTZES amongst its members, and which also
includes many by the name of HARRIS. One of the Harris' (I'm
not sure which, exactly) researched their family very
thoroughly, and was able to trace the Luntzes back to Rashi
more or less. (as you say, its not clear how much of an
accurate geneology this is, but the family tradition of
being descended >from Rashi upholds the research).

Anyway, this tree lists, amongst others, Josel of Rosheim,
and connects him to a family called SPIRA, and then to the
Loans and Luntzes.

Regards

Alan Kolnik

Looking for info on Isadore "Jack" DALY #general

Carols8600@...
 

I don't usually do this, but..... I'm looking for information on
Isadore "Jack" DALY, who lived in Mineola, NY as of August 1968.
While he supposedly died in the New York City area in the '70s, I
haven't been able to find anyone with that name in the SSDI who was
born @ 1909. I also wrote to his employer, Consolidated Cigar, but
got no reply.

His wife's name was/is Henrietta. They had no children, but his
wife may have had children >from a prior marriage.

I welcome any leads.
