Kalisz, Poland Jewish Cemetery #general

David Priever
 

Hello Fellow Jewishgenners
I am helping someone with their research in which the family SEIDEL (ZAJDEL)came
from Kalisz, Poland. I found many references to the Kalisz Jewish Cemetery and one
gave a link that does not work. It comes up with a warning and that it cannot be
opened.

If anybody has a website address for the Kalisz Jewish Cemetery I would greatly
appreciate the link.

Thank you very much.

Re: HYAMS family of New Orleans and Charleston #general

Just wanted to share that I followed up my first message to Joyce with a reminder
that JewishGen has several databases as resources - both the Family Finder and the
Family Tree of the Jewish People [FTJP].

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/

In FTJP there were several entries. I would assume with the Family Finder she
might a few fellow HYAMS detectives.

TAUSICK, TURKAS, and JACOBY in NY #general

Berkowitz Eric <E-Berkowitz@...>
 

I am looking for information and connections to living descendants of David TAUSICK
and Sophie KIND TAUSICK. I have already gone through Ancestry and the Italian
Genealogy site that has indexed much of New York City and therefore have collected
information >from censuses (1870, 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920, and 1930).

What I know is the following:
Sophie KIND originally immigrated in the 1860s >from Bohemia and went to
Philadelphia to live with her brother Sam KIND and his wife Fannie PFAELZER. She
married David TAUSICK, also >from Bohemia, in 1873 in New York and had four
children: Rudolph T. (b. 1876); Theresa (b. 1878); Walter P. (b. 1880); and
Blanche (b. 1882 or 1883).

I have not been able to track down a marriage or a death for Rudolph. Theresa
never married. Walter married Rebecca SILBERMAN in 1910 and they had one child,
Blanche (b. 1911). Their daughter Blanche married Philip J. JACOBY in 1933.

Blanche, the daughter of David and Sophie, married Joseph TURKAS in 1906 and they
had two children, Dorothy (b. 1908) and Walter (b. 1912).

Any additional information on these families and their descendants would be greatly
appreciated.

I've posted an image on Viewmate for translation >from French to English. It was
written by Dr. Nathan Roos who lived in Pforzheim Germany but was in Sevres France
when this was written in 1939. I believe this document may have information about
when he was trying to get his family out of Europe.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

KATZ-KLAUSNER family tree #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I am a descendent of the KATZ family, (descendants of the MaHaRa"L)and the KLAUSNER
family (descendants of the MaHaRSHa"L).

from the best of my knowledge the two families intertwined several times. I would
like to know at what point/generation did the two families intermarry with one
another and who was the first KLAUSNER descendants of the MaHaRSHa"L. Was it
through Sprintze daughter of Naftali KATZ (the "Smichas Chachomim).

Also, does anyone know of a ROSENBAUM family descendants of these two families? One
well known Rabbinical figure in our family believes that one of Sprintz's female
descendents, daughter of Rabbis of Kremenetz married a ROSENBAUM >from whom we are
descendant.

Thank you

Radom: 1929 Ads and 1937 Film Stills #poland

Susan Weinberg
 

On the Radom Shtetlink at http://shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/radom you will now
find links on the pictures tab to the ads >from the 1929 Radom phonebook by
family name. Also on the site are stills >from a film that was done in Radom
in 1937 of the Jewish community. I believe the film was done by someone
from Radom who was returning for a visit. While the film quality is poor,
it is a rare pre-war snapshot of what appears to be a significant portion of
the Jewish community and its institutions. It includes photos of
tombstones, many of which since have been destroyed. If you know anything
about the origin of this film please contact me. There have been many new
additions to the site since my recent visit there so check the home page for
what is new.

Questions about Brest and the Brest Ghetto #poland

taxtroll@...
 

Over the past year I've learned a lot about my ancestors who lived and
died in Brest. As for many of us, there are still many questions that
may never be answered. I do have several questions I'd like to throw
out there, questions I need to ask even though I think I already know
the answers. The questions revolve around the fact that I'm missing
information about some of the men in the family...husbands, sons,
brothers about whom we know nothing.

My questions:

1) In the book "Bashert", the author mentions a couple of times that
there were 500 Jews who escaped the Brest Ghetto but were later
captured and murdered in a town named Motikali. I can't find any
information about this town or even when this event occurred. I'm
wondering if the escape took place before the Ghetto IDs were issued.
Does anyone have more information about this? Was a list of the
escapees every created?

2) In 1941, a few weeks after the Germans took control of Brest again,
5000 men were taken >from their homes and killed. I've seen a note that
the main targets of this Aktion were educated professionals. I don't
know that any of my ancestors would fall into this category but who
knows. Does anyone know if there is a list of these victims? Since
there was a target group, the Germans must have had a list or maybe the
Brest residents attempted to create one.

3) Is there any record of the 1939 Polish army conscriptions or list of
volunteers? This would at least let me know if any of the missing men
in my family were in the army.

I was told to shorten my post so the family details are not included
here. If you are interested in more details you can find them on my
blog at
http://sharon-genealogy.blogspot.com/2010/07/questions-about-brest-and-bre
st-ghetto.html

Thanks for any help
