I found the attorney circa 1947-49

the attorney is now deceased
he was in practice with other attorneys
how would I go about finding where those records might
be (if they haven't been destroyed)?

Skole Rav's wife #rabbinic

Israel P <isai8v10@...>
 

The JRI-Poland Excel index file for Skole has a 1881 death for Sura
Chane, age 78, wife of Juda STEG. That would be the wife of the
Skole Rav.

The Rav had a daughter Sara (who married Moses PIKHOLZ), so I am
assuming that this Sure Chana was a second wife. I don't have easy
access to the obvious reference works. Does anyone know the name of
the first wife?

Seek Link to YomTov Lipman HELLER #rabbinic

chaikin <chaikin@...>
 

Dear all,

My ancestor Sarah (maiden name unknown), married Naftali Sinai
TROTZKY around 1830.

Their daughter Miriam Bathia was born 1833.

Miriam Bathia married Dov Ber SALASNIK (ZHELYAZNIK) and had:
Isaac in 1856 in Slonim;
Menachem Yaakov in 1858 in Slonim;
Hanna Zelda in 1865;
Benjamin Leib in 1874 in Jerusalem.

We know for sure that Sarah was a descendant of Yom Tov Lipman
HaLevi HELLER (died 1654).

Can someone find the link?

Best regards,

Udi Cain, Israel

1922 Vilna Pinkas #lithuania

Andrew Blumberg <ajb61@...>
 

One of the auction sites has a book for sale said to be the 1922 Vilna
Pinkas, 1st edition, 470 pages, 9 x 13 inches. There are many images of
the book with interior pages, all in Yiddish.

I have never seen this book before and wonder if anyone knows more about
it.

Thanks,

Andrew Blumberg

MODERATOR'S NOTE: While any further discussion of auctions themselves are
off-topic for this list, information about this Vilna Pinkas that might
be of general historical interest may be shared with the list.

Cemetery in Oshmiany #lithuania

sman@...
 

To the Litvak Research SIG:

The following message is of importance to anyone who may have relatives
buried in the cemetary in Oshmiany. Currently there are many stones
overturned and it is difficult to find graves. A group of people have
organized to fix the cemetary. Their information follows. Please
contact Chanan Peled of the Oshmiany Organization in Israel for more
details about the project or for information about how you can help.He
has given us permission to post his message on this list.

Kind Regards,

Organization of Oshmiany New Comers (Olim) in Israel

The Issue we would like to bring up to your attention is the
restoration and rebuilding of the Jewish Cemetery in the town of
Oshmiany, located in Belarus, about 50 kilometers >from Wilnus
(Wilna) in the direction to Minsk. Former residents of Oshmiany
have visited the town and found the Jewish Cemetery half destroyed
and in ruins. Part of the tombs have been stolen, a lot of them broken
and dispersed in the field. Only a minor numbers of tombs are still
standing. The Cemetery is covered with wild overgrown grass and
garbage. Herds of pigs and cows are wandering around. The old fence
has disappeared.

It also came to our knowledge that the city hall intends to remove the
graves and build on the site a dwelling project.

The Jewish Oshmiany organization registered as non-profit organization
whose registration number is 58-034-598-1, brought up the matter of
restoring the Cemetery with the town hall officials of Oshmiany. Their
response was a very positive one.All the expenses of the restoration
have to be provide by our organization.

We need additional help to preserve and eliminate the complete destruction
of the Cemetery.

Caroline,

There are many Rochesters in the United States. Rochester, New York is the
largest of them and for many years has had the largest Jewish community of them.
I was there for about fourteen years. I have a phone book >from 2003. For what
it is worth, there are no WEISSAGERS listed in that phone book.

Latvians in Belgium #latvia

martha <martha@...>
 

Caroline Lederle's email reminded me that I have a list of Latvians
who settled in Belgium. About a year ago, I had asked for volunteers
who were able to read and understand French and could use Excel to
help database this information so we could put it on our website. I
only had one volunteer and she had to drop out because of family
illness. Is there anyone else out there who can do the job, which is
already begun?

Remember, the content of our website is only as rich as the
volunteering spirit of our members. If you don't help, we cannot help
you.
