Re: Elisabeth as a Hebrew name #germany

This past December, at a viewing for a Judaica auction in NYC, I saw a
Hebrew poster >from 1937 Eretz Israel announcing a prayer service marking the
coronation of King George VI. It included the startling line which
transliterate: "Ha'Melech George Ha-VI Ve'Ha'Malka Elisheva". [Elisheva
being the woman later known as Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother].

The poster can be seen online at:

Moderator Note: The poster is entirely in Hebrew. The side notes at the auction
website explain the "startling" line transliterated above. Thank you, Mr. Hershman.

Boshuk near Alksinz. #general

Sandy Crystall
 

Hello JewishGenners-

I am helping another JG identify the towns where her grandfather lived
in the early 1890s. >from another older relative, is the following
information:

"He lived in Alksinz (Where his wife--Feige Cohen came from) and in
Boshuk near Alksinz."

Based on JewishGen's town finder, it sounds like Alksinz is Novyy Oleksinets.

The closest that I have come to identifying Boshuk is Borschiv (today
in Ternopil's'ka oblast, Ukraine). Those towns are about 100 miles
apart and the thought is that the two towns mentioned should be closer
to one another.

Does anyone have any suggestions for what town Boshuk might be (and
closer to Novyy Oleksinets)?

Thank you!

The recent JRI-Poland database update included LDS Data updates for 14
Towns

from the LDS Microfilms, Jewish records files were updated for the towns of
Baranow, Bedzin, Checiny, Gniewoszow, Jedzrejow, Kepno, Krasniczyn, Lowicz,
Rybnik, Tarnow, Warka, Warszawa, Widawa, and Wolborz

Four town files, Tarnow, Baranow, Krasniczyn and Kepno now include some
links to images >from the Polish National Digital Archives. Now when you
Search the database at jri-poland.org these records will each have a 'View
Image' control to click on that will bring you to the exact image containing
that record.

I would like to thank our wonderful team of volunteers who worked tirelessly
to make JRI-Poland such a success.

Yosef David and Fanny LEIBOVICY family - ViewMate photos 1920s #unitedkingdom

G Sles
 

Hello JCR-UK Members, 

This family may have migrated to England, because the wife had siblings who lived in London prior to emigrating to South Africa or the USA.

We're seeking information about Fanny (nee GARTENLAUB) and Yosef David LEIBOVICY and their six children. Their last known residence was Romania in the 1920s. Yosef David also signed his name as Y.D. LEIBOVICY. One daughter was Surica. We have no other children's names or any addresses for the family, as the photo postcards were sent in envelopes long gone.

A 1921 family photo taken in Piatra Neamt, Romania, is posted on Viewmate:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM22812
(Please ignore the responses >from 2012, which were prior to our verifying names and facts mentioned in the updated 2014 posting.)

A 1928 wedding photo taken in Galati, Romania, of daughter Surica LEIBOVICY and her husband David (surname unknown) is posted on Viewmate:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM22817

We have not found any record of the family on JewishGen or in Shoah databases, but that doesn't mean they're not listed. Fanny's siblings' descendants in Israel and the US have the same family photo as posted on ViewMate, but no one knows what became of Fanny, Yosef David, Surica, David, and the rest of their families. It's possible the LEIBOVICYs changed their surname and that Surica became Sarah.

Any advice or help will be appreciated. Please respond privately or via ViewMate. 

This message also will be posted to the Discussion group, ROM-SIG, Bessarabia SIG and others.


Thank you.

JGS of Montreal's next program: Monday, May 12, 2014 - Dr. Simon Kreindler #general

Merle Kastner <merlek@...>
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal,
in association with the Jewish Public Library, is proud to present:

Dr. Simon Kreindler
">from Galicia to Barbados, Guatemala, Montreal and Toronto -
a genealogist's journey":

Simon Kreindler grew up in Barbados, studied medicine in Montreal and since
1971, has practiced psychiatry in Toronto. He has been researching his
family's Galician roots for many years and has been able to trace his
paternal and maternal lines back to the late 1700s. In 1995, his
serendipitous discovery of a first cousin in Winnipeg, previously
thought to have been lost along with his entire family in the Shoah,
infused his search with new energy.

After visiting Czernowitz and his family's shtetls of Okna, Zablotov,
Ilince and Solotwina (in present-day Ukraine) he embarked on writing
a memoir for his children and grandchildren.

The meeting will be held on Monday, May 12, 2014 at 7:30 pm

Just learned about a sighting of a family member who was drafted into
the Russian army in 1939 and not heard >from again.

Has anyone done research in Kazakhstan. If so, would love some info
about what records may be available. How/where would I begin to research
in that region?

Any info, suggestions and/or help is much appreciated

NAHON Spanish Morocco #general

משה פלבר
 

Dear Genners

A 17 year old Solomon NAHON landed >from Spanish Morocco in Gibraltar in
1790. A grandson of his, also Solomon NAHON born there (in 1830) became the
grandfather of yet another Solomon (Umberto) NAHON (Livorno, 1905 -
Jerusalem 1974) who was my father-in-law.

My wife and I plan to be (as part of a tour-group) in Tangier and Tetouan
for a day towards the end of next week.

I wonder if anyone knows of members of the NAHON family in these cities and
could provide me with names, telephone numbers and or email addresses - so
as I may contact them for a short meeting, so as we might learn a little
more about our family's history and background.

I also believe there is a NAHON Synagogue in Tangier and wonder if a person
(with name, phone, email) could be found who would agree to show us around
it even though it might be at an inconvenient hour.

Any answer would be appreciated if it were sent to our personal e.mail:
musa35@...

Thanking you
