Does anyone have any experience with retrieving info >from this office?
What strategy did you use? Should I ask for everything at once? I am a

Sherry,

Solotvyno, also called Szolotvina, was called Aknaszlatina and was part of
Maramaros megye (county) Hungary until the end of WWI when it became part
of Czechoslovakia. I suggest that you direct your inquiry to the Hungarian
SIG discussion list.

FYI, JewishGen volunteers are in the process of transcribing Jewish vital

Woman born 1881 studying medicine? MIZRACH / BROCHIS #general

Dana Dimitriu
 

Dear all,

I have a question regarding the possibilities a woman had of studying
medicine at the beginning of the 20th century. The person in question is
Olga MIZRACH, my great-grandfather's only sister.

Olga MIZRACH was born 1881 in Ataki (currently Otaci, Moldova) , a small
village on the banks of the Dniestr river, to Meir and Dvora MIZRACH. I know
that she was a doctor and that she lived in Italy before the outbreak of
WWII with her husband, Enrico BROCHIS.

In November 1941, both were interned in a camp in southern Italy, where
Enrico died in 1942. Olga survived and was moved to a transit camp in Bari
in March 1944. Family legend has it that Olga was living in France after
WWII, but I have been unable to find anything about her in France so far.
from what I was able to find out so far, Enrico was born in Warszawa, Poland
and they had been living in Milano since 1925, and Enrico's father was named
Nahuma / Nachum.

My question is: where could Olga have studied medicine? is there any
possibility to find out which universities would have accepted Jewish women
in the interval 1900 - 1914? Were there any special regulations regarding
women students? what qualifications would she have been required to
demonstrate? are there any information sources that could help me track
Olga's studies?

There is no place with a university near enough to Ataki; I guess the
closest at approx. 180 km distance would have been Czernowitz (currently
Chernivtsi in Ukraine) - but the university seemed not to have a medical
faculty at the time? Lemberg (L'viv, Ukraine) would have been approx. 450 km
away, Krakau (Krakow, Poland) 800. Vienna over 1000 ... huge distances.

In trying to find more information about the BROCHIS family, I found a
Dr. Edwarda Estera BROCHIS in Warsaw, born 1881, doctor of dermatology and
venerology, who graduated in 1914. I have a strong feeling that this might
be the sister of Enrico, and being born in the same year as Olga MIZRACH, I
am assuming that they might have studied together and perhaps this is how
Olga and Enrico met in the first place. Should this speculation be true,
perhaps both went to the university in Warsaw - which would have been approx.
800 km >from Ataki ... is it reasonable to assume Olga would have gone so far
to study? what possibilities would a woman student like her have had to earn
a living? I do not know if the family could have afforded to keep her through
her studies - I think they lived rather modestly ...

Thank you in advance for any ideas or hints you might be able to offer. In
case anyone recognizes any of the names mentioned, I would be thrilled to
hear >from you!

WW1 Draft Registration Cards #general

Jacqueline DAVIS <jdavis318@...>
 

I would like to thank everyone who helped me during my recent enquiry about
my grandfather's WW1 Draft Registration. Especially to those to reported
the problem to Ancestry for me. It seems the problem is between that
particular draft board and the way records are documented at Ancestry.

It always amazes me the number of knowledgeable people there are.

Anyway I haven't given up.

Help finding relatives in Toronto, Canda, originally from Bucovina #general

Dana Dimitriu
 

Dear all,

I am trying to find relatives / their descendants in Toronto, Canada and
hope someone will be so kind to help me. Or - even better - perhaps someone
out there knows them!

The people in question are two sisters and the daughter of one of them, all
of them >from Bucovina, Unter-Stanesti / Stanestii de Jos (not sure), who
survived the Holocaust in Transnistria in a place called Jedinetz. After the
end of the war I am assuming that they went to Romania first, then to Israel,
and >from there to Canada.

1. Berta born DERMER, who was married TAMLER before WWII

On the Page of Testimony which Berta filled in for her mother-in-law Sali
TAMLER and also on other POTs she submitted, she signed her name as Berta
DERMER.

The date of the POTs was October 1956 - so she must have arrived in Israel
before 1956 and moved >from there to Canada later. [The reason I am almost
100% sure that Berta had immigrated to Israel is that during that period
people >from the Eastern Block were not allowed to travel, so in my eyes I
can exlude the possibility of the POTs being submitted during a visit to
Israel.]

Berta's husband, Victor TAMLER, born ca. 1912, was killed in 1942 and as
far as I know, the couple had no children. Judging by Victor's birth year,
I am assuming Berta to have been born in the interval 1910 - 1920. I do not
know if Berta remarried after 1956.

2. Clara born DERMER, who was married TAMLER before WWII; apparently
remarried after WWII to Walter ENGEL

Clara (sister of Berta), was married to Samuel (Sami) TAMLER (brother of
Victor). Sami was born 1914 so I am assuming Clara to have been born
1910 - 1920. The couple had a daughter, called Anita (see further down).
Clara did not submit any POTs at Yad Vashem so I do not know if she ever
immigrated to Israel or perhaps took another route to Canada.

3. Anita / Hanny TAMLER

Anita was born shortly before WWII - around 1937-1938. She survived
Transnistria together with her mother Clara and aunt Berta. >from what I
know, she was married MARKS - no further details here. I think she had at
least one son (?).

I know all three ladies were living in Toronto because they had been
corresponding irregularly with my great-aunt Edith (Medi) TAMLER, who passed
away last year in Tel Aviv.

A certain Pinkhas DERMER submitted a bunch of POTs at Yad Vashem on the same
date as Berta so I am supposing he was closely related to her - perhaps a
brother? or father? On ancestry.com there is a record of arrival in April
1957 in New York for Pinchas and Berta DERMER, both identified with an
Israeli passport. I have no other information but perhaps it rings a bell
with someone.

While Clara and Berta might have passed away, Anita / Hanny would be in her
70s and I am hoping she still lives. Victor and Sami TAMLER were first
cousins of my maternal grandfather. We know very little about what happened
to this branch of the family and I am trying to find out as much as I can.

I have tried to find online directories of Jewish cemeteries in Toronto but
so far was unsuccessful. I would be grateful for any assistance you might be
able to offer to help me make contact - thank you in advance!

Zulice and Bialy Kamien #general

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

I propose an interesting research question that maybe someone can answer.
I have noticed in the past that for Bialy Kamien and its surrounding towns,
there is a rather large influx of Jews with origins in Zulice, near Lublin
in Poland.

Does anyone know what connections Lublin had with the area surrounding Bialy
Kamien? This is of particular interest to me and my cousins as two families
we are researching the PARNES family and the TENNEN family have members in
Bialy Kamien who come out of Zulice (and they are not isolated either, there
is over 50 records indicating this with many different family units). I know
Lublin has an important place in the rabbinic world of Eastern Europe.

The research question is in two parts: 1) What was the connection between
Lublin and Tarnopol, specifically Bialy Kamien, Zloczow, and Sasow? and
2) What led to such an obviously significant movement >from Zulice near
Lublin to Tarnopol, presumably sometime between 1850 and 1880?

I have sent this question to Gesher Galicia, JewishGen Discussion Group,
and RavSIG.

Please reply privately.

I went to the courthouse in New York and sure enough I found the name change

Updated: APESKIN - 1911 British census #unitedkingdom

Linda Epstein
 

Hi Genners,

Thanks to all who responded with good leads on the APESKIN family. Thanks also to
Find My Past and Jeanette Rosenberg for good copies of the 1911 census record.

As I thought, I was missing two children. They are:

Eva APESKIN, b. abt 1901 in Russia.
Lily APESKIN, b. abt 1904 in Russia.

It appears by the birth dates that the family arrived in the U.K. between
1904-1906.

The family lived at 11 Fashion St., Spitalfields. The head of the family, Meircke,
signed the census form as Marks APASKIN. He was a bootmaker working out of his
house.

Two of the children are listed as being born at Commercial Road. Would that be
the Jewish Maternity Hospital?

Many thanks for the help,
Linda Epstein

Instead of trying to read a full page of transactions, go to the left side
of the page and click "view as plain text." Then you can use the Ctrl-F
(control F (Find on this page)) feature and search the document for all the
references to the name or text you want.

There may be other ways but I found this one quite easy to use and quickly
go thru numerous "hits" the web site found.
