Subject: SEEKING OCHBERG ORPHAN DESCENDANTS >from SOUTH AFRICA
From: Michelle Essers essersfam@gmail.com

David Solly Sandler of Australia is seeking 2,000 South Africans -
descendants of 60 Russian Polish and Ukrainian war and pogrom orphans,
known as Ochberg's Orphans.

In 1921, Isaac Ochberg, representative of the South African Jewish
Community, travelled to Poland and the Ukraine and brought back with
him to Cape Town 167 "Russian, Ukraine and Polish War and Pogrom
Orphans" plus 14 "attendants and nurses," mainly older siblings.
Half the children were placed in the care of the Cape Jewish Orphanage
(later Oranjia) and half went to Johannesburg, under the care of the
South African Jewish Orphanage (later Arcadia). Many children were
adopted by Jewish community members, who contributed generously to a
fund to bring the children to South Africa and care for them.
Of the 181 children, the stories of 90 have been recorded, contact has
been made with another 30, but 60 still remain to be contacted.

What is really important in this story is that many descendants might
not know their connection to the Ochberg Orphans. Some did not often
speak about this and many tried to hide the fact >from their children
because of the stigma of being an orphan.

Today, half of the 2,000 descendants live around the world in Israel,
Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and the US.

Here are the names of these orphans. If you have someone with this
name in your family tree, born c1910, there's a chance you might be an
Ochberg Orphan descendant, so read the list carefully and if you find
a name of interest, contact David (email below).

Hopefully, by the end of 2010, the lifestories of 130 of the children
will have been collected and included in a book proceeds going to
Arcadia and Oranjia.

Seeking information on location of lost relative #france

asleuth@...
 

In the 1920s and 1930s several relatives immigrated to France >from Russia.
They were all members of the same family although not all were directly
related to each other. I have been able to trace all but two of these
relatives. Dr. Nicholai (Nicholas) Gabrilowitz/Gabrilowitsch/Gavrilovic
and Pauline/Poula Gabrilowitsch seem to have disappeared without a trace.
The last Pauline was heard >from was when she traveled >from Paris to the U.S.
to visit her brother and returned to Paris in the 1930s and attended his
funeral in the U.S. in 1936. I have documents showing her traveling with
another brother who lived in Italy at the time. How would I find out what
happened to Pauline and Nicholai?

Dear GerSig members:

My apologies--I should have included this with yesterday's inquiry re:
Martin WETZLER. Justus EPSTEIN was another fraktur-artist/scrivener
working in the "Pennsylvania Dutch Country" in the mid-nineteenth century.

Should a descendant or relative of Mr. EPSTEIN be a member of GerSig,
I'd be enormously grateful to hear >from her or him. Again, this is for
doctoral work I'm pursuing re: the encounter between Ashkenazi Jews and
Pennsylvania Germans in the so-called "Pennsylvania Dutch Country" from
the eighteenth through early-twentieth centuries.

With thanks, Matt Singer Philadelphia, PA MSinger@philamuseum.org

SAPIRSTEIN: Hamburg > USA, July 1897. Family Mystery #general

Lynne Schneider
 

My dear Genners,

I am trying to solve these family mysteries and have exhausted my capabilities.

My pgm, Eva and her sister Anya Sapirstein are documented as arriving in the
US on the Phoenicia out of Hamburg in July 1897. The Passenger list
shows these sisters as "Sore" or "Sara" and "Chewel" Sapirstein.
They are listed on the Hamburg Passenger Lists as Sore or Sara and Chewel,
as well. These two young women are definitely my grandmother and her sister,
whatever their names were on manifests as all other Phoenicia manifest
information places them within the family. Eva signed her name on her
marriage certificate as â??Evaâ??.

Oral family history has always been that their mother, Dvora Walzer
Sapirstein, followed later and was not happy in US, took the younger
sister (Anya) back to Russia. I have searched Ellis Island, Philadelphia,
Boston, and Baltimore arrivals and cannot find Dvora's arrival in
US which would have been sometime after July 1897. I have also considered
the possibility that Dvora sailed with her daughters and was just listed
on a different page of the manifest. Alas, she is nowhere to be found.
I have also tried all the spelling variants of Dvora and Sapirstein
I could think of. I am hoping that a reverse search will be more
successful. My question: Is there a database of passengers leaving the
US and returning to Russia?

Question Two: Which office would have been the responsible immigrant
processing center in July, 1897, the Barge Office or Castle Garden
(since the fire at Ellis Island shut it down between June 1897 and December
1900)?

Another mystery: Anya Sapirstein married (unknown man), had a son
(unkown name). Neither her husband nor her son survived the wars in Europe.
Somehow she made her way to Israel and during the early 1960s my grandmother
was contacted by an agency in Israel in an attempt to reunite the sisters.
To make a long story short, Anya came to the US and stayed for about
2 months and then went home to Israel. That is the last information
I have about her. I do not know the name of the agency that contacted
our family nor do I know where she lived in Israel. I believe that my
grandfather, Anya's brother-in-law, Morris Datz, contributed to Anya's
living expenses in Israel. I have no idea when she died.

Question Three: With so little to go on, is there a way to find out more?

Any and all information and guidance is truly appreciated.

Thank you.

Seeking Descendants - SACKS, STROMBERG, STRIMLING, KOPPLEMAN: NY, MA #general

dogwalker47-research@...
 

I am seeking descendants of a Wolpert family, so that I can pass along
information regarding their family tree and history. I have run into dead
ends on a few of the family lines. If anyone has any information, I would
greatly appreciate it if you could send me a note.

- Descendants of Julius SACKS (Yehuda SACHS), >from Russia, a rabbi in New
York City >from about 1903-1918. He and his wife Mollie (Malke) had children
Annie (b. 1886-1889), Rebecca (b. 1889-1891) and Samuel (b. 1892-1895).
Last record found was the 1910 census. Sacks is not the family's original
surname; they are not related to other Sacks or Zacks families.

- Descendants of Sheine Gute and Israel STROMBERG (both b. 1850s), from
Russia, living in New York City >from the 1890s to about 1910, when the trail
disappears. They had children Sarah, Isaac and Sam (all of whom I have
traced), Gus or Gussie (b. abt. 1883) and 3 other children - possibly
including Ida (b. abt. 1877) and Dora (b. abt. 1883). They might also have
had a daughter Mollie (Mrs. Isaac KOPPLEMAN, b. abt 1877). The descendants
could have had connections to Boston, MA or Rochester, NY. The original
family name was Strimling and they were >from Shavel (Siauliai). Sheine may
have also been called Jennie or Sadie. Information on the children ended
with the 1900 or 1910 census records.

- Descendants of Ethel STROMBERG (b. 1906-1907), daughter of Isaac and Anna
Stromberg, sister of Milton, >from Massachusetts. Information ended with the
1920 census.

Thank you.
