JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen RE: Request to identify faces with Jabotinsky in South Africa #general

Ann Rabinowitz
 

I am not familiar with the people in the photo with Jabotinsky, but I do know
that he visited South Africa several times: February-March, 1930, 1937, and
1938. He travelled extensively, so the photo could have been taken in a great
many places in both South Africa and Rhodesia.

Some clues about identifying the people in the photo, if no one responds are:

Benzion Olsfanger is mentioned as his personal guide in South Africa and
Rhodesia, and his daughter might recognize him.

Ellie Rechavia Kolnick, was one of his adherants in Port Elizabeth, SA, and if
the photo is >from that town which he visited, he may be in it and his children
could be contacted.

Harry Hurwitz organized his trip(s).

The Jabotinsky Institute in Israel,
http://www.jabotinsky.org/site/content/t2.asp?Pid=120&Sid=9, may have other
photos in their Archives with similar people which might be identified. In
fact, there are quite a number of photos in their collection which can be
searched under "South Africa" which also do not have individuals identified.

Actually, when I searched their Archives, I was happy to find that Robert
Briscoe, the Lord Mayor of Dublin, who I knew had gone to South Africa to raise
funds for Betar and is found in twenty-four references including several very
nice photos.

Rabbinic Genealogy SIG #Rabbinic Researching Rabbi Saul RUBINS #rabbinic

bernerfolk
 

I'm seeking information about Rabbi Saul RUBINS, his family, and
ancestors. Rabbi RUBINS was born about 1876, son of Chaim RUBINS and
Chava KOHON, probably in Grodno Guburnia.

He emigrated to NYC in 1901 under the name Zarach Schneider and married
Jennie SCHNEIDER in 1903, they lived on the East side until his death
in 1944. Their eldest son, Rabbi Henry Chaim RUBINS, emigrated to
Israel where he died in 1966.

I know little of Rabbi Saul RUBINS' career except that in 1930 and 1940
he was a Rabbi at the Beth Israel Hospital in NY. Any information
about him, his work, and his family would be greatly appreciated.
Please respond privately as this is a focused query.

Thank you,

Does anyone know where I can find a picture of Rav Yosef Yona (Joseph

in the 1960's living first in Haifa and then in bne Braq where he died
in 1970.
I would be interested in a photo >from the 1930's (he assumed his
position in Frankfurt in September of 1929)

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Why conflicting towns in Box-tax record? #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

<< From: Guyleslie@...
Has any experienced researcher grappled with the significance of a
conflicting town-name in the 'comment' section of a box-tax? Could it
imply temporary residence?

For example: in the May 1877 Box Taxpayers list for Seda, the 'Comment'
for PRES, Marek, son of Iosel, reads "Skuodas, poor, has real estate".
As both Seda and Skuodas were separate communities for box-tax purposes
(according to KRA archivist Vitalija Gircyte), this is not simply a case
of a smaller town within a larger recording-community.

Could this signify that Marek was registered in Seda, but lived in
Skuodas during this collection period? If not, what else? (Had property
there? Bought meat there? >>


I think you answered your own question but with a slight twist. Based on
my experience, it is very likely that Marek lived in Seda, since this is a
Seda Taxpayers list, but was registered in Skuodas. No matter where he may
move to in Lithuania, he will still be registered in Skuodas unless he
applies to have his place of registration changed. It is a good indication
that he was born in Skuodas unless you find a birth record showing somewhere
else.

Re: NYC marriage certificate #general

Schelly Talalay Dardashti
 

I did it by mail a few months ago, and did phone calls to ask prior to that.
I was told it would take several weeks or a month each for the birth
certificate and marriage certificate. I received both in about two weeks. Very
pleasantly surprised!!

Because I live so far >from NYC, I had no choice but to do it by mail. But if
one can go in person, that is always the fastest method!
