Rebbe Nachman of Breslov descendents #general

Marlene and Arthur Carne
 

After two years of hitting the "brick wall", I am trying again for connections,
suggestions, etc. My hope is that someone will have a connection to this family.

I have been told that "Dov Ben Yehuda Lieb Barsky", (died 1915 in Kiev), was
a descendent of R. Nachman of Breslov. He was married to Channah Mirium bat
R. Avraham, who died in 1920.

Over the last few years I have not found proof of this. Any ideas would be
welcome. Thanks.

New Capabilities of NYC One Step Census Finder #general

Joel Weintraub
 

I'm giving a talk at the IAJGS meeting next week on the geographical search tools
for the New York City Censuses. As part of that talk I'll update what the Morse
One Step site (stevemorse.org) has done to upgrade/augment the existing tools on
the New York Census utilities.

First, last July, Howard Jensen gave us permission to include his searchable
database for the New York City "Police Census" of 1890. It's now possible to find
the necessary Family History Library film number >from an address for Manhattan and
west Bronx for that census on the One Step site.

Second, last week we discovered that the pilot website of the Family Search group
has now included images of Bronx and Manhattan (to their existing collection of
Brooklyn images) for the 1905 New York State Census. It is now possible to do a
search-by-address on the One Step site for this census/area/year, and then see the
first image of the resultant AD/ED district that your address is in. You can then
step through the images of that district looking for your target. Steve coded a
search engine for those images, and added it as a tool to the New York Census
utilities, at: http://www.stevemorse.org/nyc/viewer.html

Enjoy

Re: : Straubenmuller Textile High School -- New York #general

Dear Genners,

Yesterday I posted:

I just discovered that a cousin that I have not seen for 50+ years
attended Straubenmuller Textile High School in New York City >from 1947 - 1950.

What kind of school is / was this? If any one has a copy of the school yearbook,
please contact me privately and I will give you the name of the person in
question.

Today I received several responses and suggestions; Most suggested that I do an
internet search. Some suggested classmates.com. In order to check out profiles,
one must register as a "classmate", and I am not. one. I would like to add the
following:

I have 'googled' and 'yahooed' the name of the person I was looking for. That is
how I came up with the name of the school and the fact that the name was changed
several times, and that it finally closed in 2009. I have also searched for
yearbooks, and found several sites, but none had the years I was looking for.
Thus, the reason I posted to Jewishgen as a last resort.

Perhaps there are people more adept than I. The name I am searching is Irene
Manousos. I 'found' this person about a year ago, wrote a letter and enclosed a
photo of us taken about 70 years ago. She chose not to respond. I have a current
address and phone# for her, so I do not need that. I am only interested in the
high school and yearbook.

Thanks to all,

Laurice ROSENBERG, Burbank CA #germany

Ernest Kallmann
 

Among the descendants of Meyer Jacob MEYER (Dransfeld 1868- Hann.Muenden
1909) I am searching for his ggson/daughter Laurice ROSENBERG, said to
be deceased on April 13, 1944. Given her/his probable age, if he is a
man, it may be a war casualty. If she is a woman, the death has probably
occurred in Burbank,CA.

I would be grateful for any suggestion how to search. Laurice's parents
were Willy/Bill ROSENBERG and Trude/Gertrude PLAUT, both probably
deceased in Burbank, Bill had a sister Helene MEYERFELD nee ROSENBERG.

Hi Rusty,

The most recent record that I have is the death of Fay DEKTOR (nee LEVY) who
died on 10 July 2003 in Washington, USA. It appears that her husband (name
unknown) pre-deceased her. She was survived by 2 children, Zelda Hiller & a
son Leslie. The notice appeared in a Cape Town Newspaper.

Dave's wife, Reggie, was a lifelong friend of my mother. They lived in 15
Kensington Crescent, Oranjezicht. To the best of my knowledge, Dave and Reggie are
buried in Cape Town.

Shulamit was Dave's niece - she lived with Dave and Reggie for many years. She
tells a bit of her story in the Herzlia School magazine at

I notice that she spells her surname DECKTOR.

Engagement Notices #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Whilst looking through the "Sunday Times" (Johannesburg, South Africa),
August 26, 1945, I found the following engagement notice. What piqued my
interest was that the groom was >from a Panevezys family:

NOACH-SACKS.-The engagement is announced of Thelma, daughter of Mr. and Mrs
R. Noach, of Mossel Bay, to Max Sacks, of Parkview, Johannesburg, son of the
late Mr. and Mrs. M. Sacks, of Ponevezh. c550/j

Due to the date of the wedding, it might be that the parents were killed in
Panevezys during the Holocaust and that is why they are referred to in this
manner.

Another engagement notice was of interest too as it refers to a family name,
YAMEY, of one of the avid posters on the JewishGen and SIG digests.

YAMEY -FREEDMAN -The engagement is announced of Anne, only daughter of Mr
and Mrs M J Freedman, of Pretoria, to Ian, second son of Mrs. l Walt, of
Port Elizabeth and the late Mr S. Yamey. At home, Sun., Sept 2, >from 5 to 7
p.m. 32854

This confirms that it is good to look at all sorts of resources when
searching for your family, particularly newspapers. The site I used in this
