Smalian / Smalyan? Rabbi Yoel of Smalian #general

Udi Cain
 

Dear all.

In letters >from 1778 until 1817 (all in Hebrew), I have the place name
Smalian.
Actually the person that I'm interested in, who appears in all these
letters, is
rabbi Yoel ben Moshe.
In Hebrew, the name of the shtet'l is: Samech Mem Lammed Yud Yud Allef Nun.
Shtet'l seeker brings me to Orsha gubernia, and the only place near Orsha
(between Mogilev & Vitebsk), that looks right, is Smolensk. Is it the same
as Smalian?
Rabbi Yoel Ben Moshe, came to Smalian >from Shklov. First time he appears in
a letter that Admor Abraham of Kalisk wrote to him >from Tiberias in 1778,
last signature of Rabbi Yoel, appears on a letter >from Tiberias (to which he
first arrived in 1786) in 1817, Does any one has any knowledge about him? He
was the third in the "hierarchy" of Hassidic Rabbis' in Tveria, right after
Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Vitebsk and Rabbi Abraham of Kalisk.
I think that his father, Rabbi Moshe. was the brother of Rabbi Aharon the
great >from Karlin, and his mother, daughter of Admor Chaim Chaik'l of Amdur.
Any confirmation?

Best regards >from Jerusalem. Udi Cain (Chaikin).

I'm doing some genealogical research. The father of my great grand father
came >from Galicia to France in 1880, his name was Jacob STOURM that's the
french spelling . Do someone know what the original one was?
thank you for your help
This is very interesting. If you look in the display of the *main*
database of my Website (see the signature block below) you will find
STURMs >from Galicia (I do not know >from where in Galicia), born in the
1860s and 1880s. That, BTW, in answer to your question, would be the
German spelling of this German-language name (Galicia being Austrian
territory then). I don't suppose the name is a very rare one, but it
may be worth investigating whether there is a link with your family.

Please drop me private Email, and we can discuss this.

Woman's name after a divorce #general

Denise Azbill <famaz@...>
 

I received my grandmother's ship manifest >from 1912, and to my surprise
discovered she was traveling with her sister. The sister was listed as a
widow, but was traveling under her maiden name. So, maybe this was a common
practice back then, to go back to a maiden name after death or divorce?

Question about jewish in Galicia (Spain) -- RODRIGUEZ #general

Pose, Javier <javier.pose@...>
 

I'd like to get any information about the presence of jewish in Galicia.
My surname is RODRIGUEZ and I read some information about the jewish
ascendence of this surname.
I'd like to be in touch with any person who could help me to study my past.
My family come >from Ourense in Galicia and some of our parents were to
America in the 20's, 30's and 40's (Argentina and Cuba).
Could you help me??
I would be very grateful.
Thanks for all:

Javier Pose Rodriguez.


re. Leyb #general

Judith Hamilton <edenland@...>
 

The recent postings about the name Leyb, Leon and other lion related names
made me realize what an odd choice of names my father had. He was always
known by his middle name of Michael (or its variations) and our surname was
Low as he had dropped the umlaut when he came to England, but his original
name was Leo Low (i.e. Loew)!

Kalius, Ukraine #general

Stephen Mednick <smednick@...>
 

I've just been glancing through the book "The Road FromLetichev", Volume 2
and in it I came across a Holocaust testimony by a Moyshe Rekhtmann of
Brooklyn. In his testimony, he mentions that he was born in 1927 in the
village of Kalus, district of Khmelnisky on the Dneister River. My ancestral
village was known and Kalius and was located at in much the same area.

Would I be right in assuming that "Kalus" and "Kalius" were one and the same
place? Whereas "Kalius" is referred to, there's no reference to the name
"Kalus" in the book "Where Once We Walked".

The other thing I'd be very interested in find out is if Mr Rekhtmann was
still alive today and if so how I could go about getting in contact with
him. Can anyone suggest how I might go about this (remembering I'm here in
Australia)? According to the chapter notes of the book, his 1995 testimony
was on file at the US Holocaust Museum.

Re: Some further thoughts #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

This is not strictly genealogy, but recently some studies have indicated
that people who use their minds more don't get Alzheimer's Disease as
much as those who don't think a lot.

David Fielker wrote:

"In my case, one reason is certainly the thrill of the chase. As a
mathematics teacher I have always enjoyed solving problems"

I agree. I need something to ponder and work at-very strange to
non-genealogists. (I am presently trying to teach myself Russian in
pursuit of ancestors there-don't tell anyone, they will lock me up)
That is why a lot of people are interested in their family history, but
some do not want to do the work.

I propose a study (for someone) to compare the rate of Alzheimer's
disease between genealogists and matched non-genealogists.

The good news is that people reading this should not get senile,
although my Grandmother told me I was senile 30 years ago.

Pultusk Museum #general

SBernst579@...
 

I have recently been informed thatTwenty tombstones are in
Museum Pultusk; one tombstone is in the estate at Stoneczna 40 st.; five
tombstones are in Archiwum in Pultusk. . Being that there are no headstones
left at the site of the cemetery, I will be attempting to gain permission to
have the headstones located at the museum and the headstones, located at the
two additional sites in Pultusk, photographed by whatever means I can arrange.

At this juncture, I am in need of any contacts any JewishGen researchers, or
organizations may have, to assist me with contacting the above fore
mentioned sites; i.e. addresses, names,ideas which may help with this
project.
