Re: Lipshitz, and also sculptor Jacques Lipchitz #latvia

jacqueline gill <shibko@...>
 

Who are the Joels you are researching in Riga? My Joel family lived there
from the 1870s to 1941 - Lazar Joel, my great-grandfather, who was a
shoemaker, with his children Zlata (Hirschberg), Rosa (Blankfeld), Hannah
(Magidson), Julius, Mendel and Lena, all born in the 1870s and 1880s. The
family originally came >from Mitau.

If any of this sounds familiar, I should be happy to provide further
details.

Original message:

Hi everyone. A while ago I posted about my Lipshitz family on the regular
JewishGen discussion group, but I figured I'd post here as well in case
some
of you are not members of the general group.

My grandfather, Benjamin Lipshytz, was a first cousin of the sculptor
Jacques Lipchitz, I am told, but because Ben's father Mendel lived in Riga,
Latvia, (as opposed to Lithuania) there seems to be no mention of him on a
tree I got >from one of Jacques' relatives. So, I just wrote to the
Latvian
archives for his death certificate- although the dates are iffy and who
knows if they'll be able to locate it.

Anyway, I'm wondering if any of you have any ties to Riga Lipshitzes.
Mendel's father was either named Benjamin or David Ishia (we think) .
Mendel married twice- first to a woman named something like Pesha. He had
two children- Riva (b. 1902) , who married Ezra Altman and came to the US,
and Dverka (Devorah) (b. aft 1902) who married someone (I wish I knew the
name!!) and went to live in Poland (Possibly??), where they were lost in
the
Holocaust. Dverka had children, and they were probably lost too, but no
one
knows, since we don't know a last name for them. After Pesha died, Mendel
married Merka Kuslansky, and they had my grandfather.

If anything sounds familiar here to anyone, I'd welcome any replies!!

Re: Seeking Hirsch GOLDBERG #galicia

I originally sent a message stating that I am seeking information on Hirsch
GOLDBERG who lived in Chicago in the 1890's. He belonged to Congregation
Ansche Suvalk, and was presented with an award on December 2, 1894 >from that
Synagogue.

This is not one of my relatives and I know nothing about this man - except
that I have in my possession the award he was given by the Schul in 1894. I
would like to find out something about him and/or his family.

I received some wonderful suggestions >from Marion Hattenbach Berstein and

Dear Freya,
If Hirsch GOLDBERG were a member of Ansche Suvalk, could he be >from Suwalki
Gubernia or perhaps even the town of Suwalki? Have you checked to see if
there was a landsmanschaft (they might know about this at Spertus College)
for immigrants >from Suwalk? Have you checked to see if the congregation
had its own plot at Waldheim Cemetery (near Chicago)?
Last, but not least, contact the publication Landsmen, which deals with
Jewish genealogy in Suwalk & Lomza gubernias. You can run an ad with them.

Delejov #galicia

frawalt@...
 

Hello all!

I'm looking for help in figuring out the present-day name of a town just
outside of Stanislawow. My father, Dawid Fraenkel, and other members of his
family were born there. I have seen it on various documents spelled
DELEJOV, DELEVOV, and DELEWOW.

I remember my father saying that when he was a child (1910's), they
occasionally walked >from his home to the city of Stanislawow...sometimes on
foot, sometimes with their wagon. Someone suggested that it may be
"Deleyuv" which is about 13 miles outside Stanislawow. When I first heard
13 miles, it seemed like such a great distance on foot. But I always forget
that those were other times. I recall a story about my other grandfather
walking two hours every morning to go work and another two hours every night
to get back home. The more I think about it, the more I think Deleyuv might
be the town I'm looking for.

Another possibility I came across was "Deleva", but I understand this is
even further away.

If anyone has any suggestions, ideas, perhaps a local map or gazeteer, I'd
appreciate hearing >from you.

Best regards,
Nancy Fraenkel

Nancy,

Delejow (in Polish with accented 'o') pron. as Deleyuv at 4906 2452 is
currently known as Deliyevo. It is indeed located 13 miles from
Ivano-Frankivsk (ex Stanislawow).
Prewar population of Delejow was 1,756.

Nearest larger town to Delejow is Galich - distance about 6 miles.

Town name is listed in ShtetlSeeker database at JewishGen site, which also
provides direct connection to the map.
