Rabbi Itche Meir (JARMUK?) of Rechitsa? #rabbinic

Itzhak Epstein
 

According to an article by Akiva Kostrometzky in the Horodetz yizkor
book, my greatgreatgrandfather, Yermiyah Zerah JARMUK, had a son,
Itche Meir, who became a Hasid in the mid 19th century and
eventually [the] Rabbi in Rechitsa (Minsk Gub.). My research, so
far, has yielded no information about the Rabbi. Does anybody on
this list you know anything about him?

MaHaRaL descendants #rabbinic

Gilbert Hendlisz <gilbert.hendlisz@...>
 

Hello to the group,

In the scope of a research work I am trying to identify living persons
who could be direct descendants, in the paternal line, of the MaHaRaL of
Prague or >from his relative Rav Gabriel ESKELES. If someone is such a
descendant or knows such a descendant, could he be so kind to let me know.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Rabbi Ahron of Karlin the Great #rabbinic

Gilbert Hendlisz <gilbert.hendlisz@...>
 

Hello to the group,

I have seen lots of references about the descendants of Rabbi Ahron
PERLOW of Karlin the great but nothing about his ancestors. I think he
was born around 1736 and that he was a disciple of Rav Dov Ber of
Mezerich. His father's name was Yakov who seemed also to have been a rabbi.
Are there any sources about the ancestors of Rabbi Ahron Perlow?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

HEILPERIN Trees #rabbinic

Steven Bloom
 

There is a genealogical tree chart for Eliezer Lipman Heilprin in
Rosenstein and Weber's "Avnei Zikaron."
This tree indicates two sons, Israel (d.1689) and Joseph
(1619-1690). Both men had sons Shmuel.
Joseph's son was nicknamed "Pulvermacher" and Israel's son was
called Shmuel Helman.

I can't seem to match him conclusively to any of the Eliezer Lipman
Heilperin's in the charts of Meorei Galicia (by Meir Wunder).
According to his charts the best bet is Eliezer Lipman of Lublin who
had a son Israel of Krotoschin, who had a son Samuel Helman
of Mannheim and Metz.
This appears to be the match, but this Eliezer doesn't seem to have
a son Joseph. Also, no further line >from Samuel Helman
is mentioned in Meorei Galicia (at least not in the chart).

I'd be interested in a knowledgable opinion on whether these are the
same Eliezer Lipman Heilperin. If so, Rosenstein and Weber extend this
tree quite a bit.

Also, curiously, this tree of Meorei Galicia also shows this
particular Heilperin family to be cousins of Jehiel Heilperin of
Minsk( "Seder Hadorot")--something like a 3rd cousin to this Eliezer
Lipman. I haven't see any other source mention this particular
connection. Thoughts?

I am a descendant of Rabbi Elyiahu Nachum (probably ben Ruven of
Glowno) HALPERN of Piontek (1789-1869). His family later claimed he
was a descendant of the Seder Hadorot. I have yet to find the
connection, but I am trying to be a collector of all things Halpern,
Heilperin, etc.

that he is about to publish a book about each of the following Rabbis
and their descendants:

1) Rabbi Yechiel Michel, the Magid of Zloczow

2) Rabbi Klonimus Kalman EPSTEIN, the author of "Maor VaShemesh"

Re: Correlating Departure... #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybruc@...>
 

I agree with Celia. It is always good practice to get whatever exists. You never
know what it will say until you see what it says. That goes for passenger lists
and every other document.

For example, my great grandmother came to the US as a little girl. I had her
death certificate with her parents names, and I had found her origin on the
Hamburg Passenger lists - and her birth record >from there.

But what did she do in the US by herself; obviously somebody met her at the ship?

I had ordered birth records for her kids, a few at a time, some >from Missouri,
some >from NYC - and there weren't any. I finally ordered the last one, thinking
'what is the point, I know who she is and who the kid is'. Well, it actually
existed and had another maiden name on it! I knew the surname of her US family.
If I hadn't bothered to try to get that birth record (I was short of money at the
time), I would not have found out what I didn't know was there.

Bottom line is 'You never know'.

Searching ZAJDMAN descendants. #general

Sheila Lanch <robinsmead@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I am searching for descendants of my paternal g. grandfather Izrael ZAJDMAN
( who was born around 1826) and lived in Pilica, Poland, in the late 1860s.
His second wife was Frajdla Laja LENCZNER ( my g. grandmother), whom he
married in 1868 in Pilica. (I have no knowledge of any children of Izrael
and his first wife)
My grandfather Icyk ZAJDMAN (son of Izrael and Frajdla) had a niece whose
name was, possibly, DORFMAJER or DORFBERGER. Also, he talked about a
brother, and I am interested to know if this brother had children.
Grandfather came to the U.K. in the mid 1880s to live with his uncle Abram
Maier LENCZNER.
Any information about my family would be gratefully appreciated.

Many thanks,
Sheila R. Lanch (nee Sideman).

Well, some of us maintain that Edwin Land did not invent that process.

My wife's great grandfather Sigmund Leopold STEIN 1840-1891 was one of the first
to work on this, see his 1873 patent declaration see his "Der Heliopiktor

Does anyone have photos of the tombstones in the Debrecen cemetery? I
have a photo of the tombstone of an ancestor who might be interred
there. The only clue is that the photo studio that developed the image
was in Debrecen.

Thank you.

Hello All,
Is there a way to receive cemetery photos >from JOWBR? I have discovered
that in Ujfeherto cemetery there is a stone that might be of a relative
of mine based on the transcription that was provided (at cost). Since
this information was news to me I wanted to see the actual stone's
inscription to decipher it myself for better understanding.

Thank you,

Moderator: Have you checked to see if the image is available at JOWBR?
If not, contact Nolan Altman, JOWBR Coordinator.
