Rudolf Lowit and Family #austria-czech

sweet_babe1966@...
 

I am looking for info on my 2nd Great-Grandfather Rudolf LOWIT (1832-1890) and his family. Rudolf was
married to Katharina PICK LOWIT (1839-?). They had the following children:

(1) Klementine Lowit KOBLITZ (1856-?)
(2) Albrecht LOEWIT (My great-grandfather) (1859-1928) Lived in NYC
(3) Anna Lowit GEIRINGER (1860-?)
(4) Gustav LOWIT (1862-?)
(5) Zdenka LOEWIT (1866-?)
(6) Albine LOWIT (1867-?)
(7) Olga LOWIT (1868-?)
(8) Josef Israel LOWIT (1870-1942-Died in concentration camp in Terezin)
(9) Rosa LOWIT (1872-?)
(10)Camilla LOWIT (1875-?)
(11) Franz LOWIT(1879- 1970s?)-Lived in New York

I would like to know if anyone has any info on Rudolf or his family in any of the following places:
Brumov/Braunau, Brno/Brunn, Prague/Prag----possibly in Textile or other businesses? I was told by my
great-aunt (Albrecht's daughter) that the Lowits were "weavers and chemists". I believe that Rudolf ran his
own factory possibly in Braunau. I would like to know the name and location of the factory or factories he
ran.

I would also like to find out what happened to Rudolf's other children. Albrecht came to Ameica in 1881.
His brother, Franz came to America in 1900. I have no evidence that any of the other siblings ever came
to America. I was told by my great-aunt that many of them died in the Holocaust. I have proof of only one
sibling, Josef dieing of an illness while in a concentration camp.

Location of Rudolf's and Katharina's graves would also be helpful. I will be going to Prague in three weeks.
I would love to see Rudolf's and Katharina's graves if they are located in a cemetery in Prague.

I have gotten much info >from Peter Rohel and his genealogy website. He has given me a link to a site
called: "Kramerius". I have also found Lowit info on the website for the Czech National Archives and the
website that shows Holocaust victims >from the Czech Republic (www.holocaust.cz). I have used the
website: Find-A-Grave for info and I have memorials on there for Albrecht and Josef.

If you have any info on this family or are related----then please contact me. Thank you.

Try contacting the Hebrew Theological Seminary at 7135 N. Carpenter

maybe they can help. The synagogue sounds like it might have been
Congregation Beth Jacob on Kimball Avenue Chicago which closed its
doors. The memorial tablets were transferred to the HTS so maybe other
records are in the archives at the HTS.

There were two towns of this name during the Austrian period. One
was in the subdistrict of Strusow, main district of Trembowla. The other
was in the subdistrict of Gologory, main district of Zloczow. Without
knowing more, I couldn't advise as to which one was correct.
Suzan,

There was only one town by name Zubow in district Trembowla in
Tarnopol Province.

You are confusing towns Zubow with Zukow (accented Polish letters
"z" and "o"), also in Tarnopol Province

On the other hand, there were two towns by name Zukow, one in
district Zloczow (landlord Count Jakob Potocki) and the other in
district Brzezany (Jewish landlord Salomon LUKACZER).

BINKOWSKI, GOLDWASSER,RAUCH, RZESZEWSKI, SEIDLITZ, LACHMAN of Kolo, Kalisz, Poland #unitedkingdom

mary.sayers@...
 

I believe I may have located at least some of the siblings of my husband's
maternal grandmother, Machla BINKOWSKI, who was born in Kolo, Poland,c 1861
and who married Mosek GOLDWASSER/GOLDWATER. These siblings, all born in Kolo,
are the children of Izrael BINKOWSKI (b c 1815) and his wife Sura/Sora RAUCH (
b 1823, who married Izrael in 1840 in Kolo). They included: Blume (b 1841,
who appears to have married Abram(or possibly Schmul)RZESZEWSKI in 1865);
Abram who married Golda SEIDLITZ and with whom he had a son Falek in 1871;
Chawe (1842-1844); Frayde (b 1846); Ruchel (b 1847); Chaim (1848-1856); and Haja (1851-1853).

I believe Bluma and her family came to London via Grimsby in 1902.
Her children included Beile (b c1880), Chane (b c 1883), and Falek (b c1884).

I believe Suraâ??s parents to have been Falek RAUCH and Hana LACHMAN. Izrael
BINKOWSKIâ??s parents were Abram BINKOWSKI and Machla (surname as yet unknown).

The death of a Bloomah RZESZEWSKI was registered in St Pancras in 1914.
I haven't yet been able to locate other family members, and would be very grateful
for any information or advice.

Many thanks
