Searching: TZIMMERMAN and TZAHN (Tomaszow Lubelski, Poland) #general

Sandy Lawrence Edry <sle7@...>
 

I am hoping to find any information about my grandparents' family.

Their names were Sender and Bracha TZIMMERMAN or ZIMMERMAN and
they came >from Tomaszow Lubelski in Poland (about 35km >from Lviv).

They left Poland in 1939 and spent the war in Siberia and in Samarkand,
Uzbekistan before returning to Tomaszow right after the war in 1945. They
arrived in Haifa, Israel in 1951. My grandfather died in 1953.

I know that at least one of his brothers (Tzimmerman) ended up in Paris
-- first name is Peretz, I think -- and one brother may have ended up in
Argentina.

Additionaly, I am look for information about anyone else from
Tomaszow Lubelski, esp. anyone who can tell me about the town before the
war. (I am working on having parts of the Yizkor book translated to
English. If anyone has done some work on this please let me know.)

While extracting an ancestor's birth record >from Ostrow Mazowiecka, his
father's first name is listed as "Exyxm." I have never heard of this name
before. Does this name make sense to anyone or have I misread the
handwriting.

Any ideas are welcome.

Thanks,

It doesn't make sense. My guess would be that the name is "Jeruchim", since
"x" is the Russian equivalent of "ch" (I'm assuming this was a Russian
record).

Zdunska Wola update #poland

Daniel Wagner <Cpwagner@...>
 

I am pleased to announce that the last corrections for Zdunska Wola
have (finally) been Emailed to Hadassah Lipsius. The vital data
should appear on the REIPP database in the near future. Sorry for the
delay, last 6 months have been hectic, both privately and
professionally.

Again, a warm thanks to all the volunteers.

Caecilie KLEIN/Isaac BLUMBERG - NY? #general

Irene Newhouse <newhoir@...>
 

My distant aunt Caecilie KLEIN [19 Sep 1886, Baden] married Isaac BLUMBERG
[24 Aug 1888] in Vienna, where her family lived [her mother must have gone
to a spa during her pregnancy]. One of their nephews told his daughter
that Dr. BLUMBERG was a psychiatrist or psychologist [which explains what
he was doing in Vienna] & that Caecilie, who no doubt anglicized her
name, was an artist who exhibited her work in NY. I'd love suggestions as
to how to find out about her work, as well as contact with relatives.
Please note that library resouces where I now live are VERY limited, it
takes a plane trip to get to a decent one, so places to contact by e-mail
or snail mail are particularly welcome.

Thanks in advance,
Irene Newhouse

TABISZ = TOBIASZ ? #general

S & R Chernoff <s.r.chernoff@...>
 

I have recently been told that one of the surnames that I am
researching, TABISZ, was derived >from the name TOBIASZ which in turn
comes >from the Hebrew "towi-jjah". I apologize if I have misspelled the
Hebrew phrase. I was also told that the name has been around since the
1500s in Poland albeit undergoing several changes over the years. Is
there any one on the list who can confirm or deny this statement? Please
reply privately unless you feel the response would be of interest to the
list. Thank you in advance for your help.

Is there anyone out there who is researching in BIELCZA, formerly part

where my gm was born in 1898, and >from where she left in 1913 to go to
NY. I would like to find other researchers, if there are any, or anyone
who can tell me anything about the town.

Historians and Hungarian Jewish History #hungary

Louis Schonfeld <lmagyar@...>
 

Without taking anything away >from Steven Grosz's excellent and interesting
report, and not to diminish the stature of Mr. Stark - it would be more
precise to say that Mr. Stark is the expert in the field of Jewish
demographic losses during the Holocaust, and is also among the most
knowledgeable researchers in the study of the Hungarian Holocaust.
Of course, Randolph Braham reigns supreme as the foremost scholar of that
tragic period.

Does anyone know of other serious researchers in this field? There is
Gabi-Bar Shaked and there are a number of Slovakian Holocaust researchers:
Livia Rothkirchen, Gila Fitran, Yeshayahu Yellinek, and Robert Buchler.
Other scholars engaged in Hungarian Jewish studies are Moshe Carmilly
Weinberger in America, Michael Silber and Suzann Nagy at the Hebrew
University in Jerusalem, Raphael Vago and Zvi Hartman at Tel Aviv
University. Sadly, a number of scholars have passed away in the last few
years. Within the last fourteen months we have lost Rafael Patai, Jacob Katz
and Yosef Cohen, and in recent years also Eliyahu Gonda, Shmuel Weingarten,
and Yehuda Spiegel. I don't know if Nataniel Katzbug or Bela Vago are still
active. Others who have recently published on Hungarian Jewish history are
Yitzchak Peri (Friedman) and Andrew Handler. I'm sure I have missed some.
Perhaps others can provide additional names or may have additional
information about the scholars mentioned here.

Re: synagogue marriages in England #general

michael slifkin <slifkin@...>
 

The laws governing marriage in the UK are set out in the handbook given to all
marriage secretaries. However as I said it is only a technical offence in that
I have never heard of anyone being prosecuted for it. I would imagine that
hardly anybody knows about the law except marriage secretaries. In the United
Synagogues the minister is often the marriage secretary and would know the law.
It is quite likely that most of the unregistered weddings are carried out by
people ignorant of the law. In my experience synagogue executives do not want to
do anything illegal and so do not allow unregistered weddings to take place in
their sybaggoues.If you belong to a synaggoue of any denomination ask the
marrriage secretary to check his handbook for you.
The situation with non-registered place of worships is that they arrange for a
marriage regisitrar to be present.

According to UK law any ceremony purporting to be a wedding must be
registered with the authorities. The Rabbi who married a couple after a
civil wedding was committing a technical offense as clearly the wedding
could not be registered for a second time and the law doesn't allow for
such weddings.
I am sure that you are wrong. A Christian friend of mine was marrying a
divorcee. They were first married in a registry office and then the
marriage was blessed in Church. I know that is not quite the same thing
but it is similar.

There are legal reasons why it might be prudent to be made husband and
wife and to travel as so although the couple might wish to travel to
another country, to celebrate with family etc, to have the religious
service.

I believe it is not uncommon for Muslims to be married in a civil service
in the UK and to have a religious service in the Indian sub-continent.

Likewise I would have thought that denominations that are not registered
for marriage would use the civil facilities and then carry out their own
marriage service.

If the rabbi had been carrying out something illegal I think that he had
chosen the wrong boys to make up the minyan because I don't think our
parents woudl have condoned something that was not above board.

surnames #general

arlene parnes <arlene@...>
 

It has been a long time since I posted my surnames so I thought I would try
again:

Arlene Parnes, Orlando, FL
Searching:
ARONOWITZ, Russia; Cuba; ASIA, Krements, Poland/Ukraine
COHEN, Russia; Manchester, Eng; EPSTEIN, Russia; GALEWITZ, Vilnius,
Minsk or Grodno
GROBERG, Vienna; JUVITZER/PARNES; Vishnevets, Poland/Ukraine;
SPIEGELMAN, Ternopol

I am really especially anxious to find ARONOWITZ (sister of GALEWITZ) and
GALEWITZ.

I have found 4 men with that last name but have not been able to connect
them to my family -- other than Mor(r)is. I have a strong suspicion that
this man, when he gave his age on embarkation, lied to make himself older,
as the rest of the information agrees with what we know about my gf - born
in 1870, arrived 1888, first papers in 1891, nat in 1902

Can anyone help?

Thanks
Arlene
Many thanks
