SEGAL family aboard Struma #general

randy brotman <randybrotman@...>
 

It has been two years since my last attempt to obtain any "new"
information regarding the SEGAL family (Lina and her two sons Robert and
Silene, it is quite possible that they were married to Clotilda and Ginette
respectively). They were last known to be aboard the ill fated ship called
"Struma" that was torpedoed off the shores of Turkey on February 24,1942. It
is reported that an M.Segal, his wife and son were able to disembark the
ship before it was sunk and all passengers except for one(David Stoliar)
perished.
It is my hope that I can find out for certainty if there is any connection
between the Segal family that disembarked Struma and the Segal family that
I am related to. I believe that Alexander Segal is the surviving child who
today would be approximately 77 years old and that he might hold some
answers to the many questions that remain regarding this Segal family
aboard Struma.
If anyone has *any* information regarding Struma and the SEGAL family please
contact me personally at: randybrotman@...
Thank you.

the abridged version: "

Another name comes up if you go to today's Russia. Alexander or Alexandra
are called Sasha. On a recent trip to meet my long lost paternal family in
Perm, Russia, the individuals named Alexander or Alexandra were introduced
to me as "Sasha". It was quite confusing since we had swapped the family
tree which did not have anyone named "Sasha". This goes for a lot of their
names, like "Tolya" for Anatoli. And don't leave out their patrynomic name.
They are quite positive in honoring their parents in that way. I always
address my letters to my cousin Veniamin, whose father was Vladimir, as
"Veniamin Vladimirovich Berlin".

I'm afraid I must disagree with my 8th cousin, Dr Bernet.
To give two examples:

My ggg-gf Moises SENDER (died before 1855), lived in the Rhineland in far
western Germany (in Luxheim - with a u-umlaut). We presume that his father
or grandfather was named Alexsander.

My ggggg-gf Alexandre Moyse (1742-1802) lived in the Moselle region of
north-eastern France. His (hebrew) signature reads "Sender b'r Moshe z'l" .

A recently published book "La communaute juive de Hellimer" establishes
that his great-grandfather was Alexandre Abraham (circa 1620-1696) who also
lived in the Moselle. [Alexandre is the French spelling of Alexander] I
presume that Alexandre Moyse was named after his g-gf.

In summary: Alexander is a very long established Ashkenazi name, both in
Western and Eastern Europe. Its use predates even the first Tsar Alexander.
The common abbreviation Sender is not restricted to Slavic lands.

Looking For Family Of Sam STICKLER - Rochester, New York #general

Suzy Lampert <suzylampert@...>
 

Are there any Genners out there who once lived in Rochester, New York who
may remember my relatives?

I am looking for the children, grandchildren and any other relatives of SAM
STICKLER and his wife (whose name I do not remember). Their last known
place of residence was Rochester, New York, but that was quite a while ago.

Sam Stickler was my grandfather's cousin. His father and my grandfather's
father (Jabob "Yankle" Stickler) were brothers. Sam's mother was Malka
Stickler. His brother was Meyer Stickler.

My grandfather was Harry Stickler. My mother is his daughter. He and Sam's
mother (Malka) came to the United States >from Calarasi, Bessarabia, Romania.
I do not know if Sam and his brother Meyer were born in Romania or the
Uniited States. I have been searching for information regarding the fate of
my grandfather's family during and after the Holocaust and am hopeful that
Sam's family may have the information I am looking for.

I understand that Sam and his wife raised his brother Meyer's daughter,
Marcia Stickler, after her parents died when she was quite young. Marcia
would be in her 40s now. Her mother was Elsie Stickler. Elsie, Meyer and
Marcia lived in Brooklyn, New York.

Sam and his wife had two children (one son and one daughter, I believe).
Malka, Sam and his wife no longer would be alive, but Sam's children and any
grandchildren still would be living. His children would be in their 80s
now.

I would be very grateful if anyone remembers anything about any of them or
can tell me how to get in touch with them.

Thank you. I am very anxious to find them.

Jews Named Alexander #general

Howh20@...
 

With relation to the issue of Jews naming their sons Alexander (Sender)
because of the kind way in which they were treated by Alexander the Great in the
4th Century B.C.E., I question if this naming pattern was continuous over the
past 2000+ years. I ask this because I wonder to what extent Jews within the
Russian Empire might have named their sons Alexander after Czar Alexander II
(assassinated in 1881), who tremendously improved the lot of Jews under his rule.
