I'm seeking information about a Dr. GOLDBERG and his family. He was a
resident doctor on the staff of Jewish Memorial Hospital 1939 to
1946, while it was located at 196th & Broadway, in Manhattan, New
York County of New York City. I don't know his first name.

I know that he was the son of Joseph Goldberg and the doctor had two
sisters and two half sisters and one half brother.

VM req: yiddish letters by my grandfather's grandfather #general

D Gershon Lewental
 

Shalom rav,

As I mentioned last week, my family is trying to translate some
Yiddish (and German) letters written by my great-grandmother and her
family to relatives in New York. Last week, I posted a few letters and
appreciate greatly the responses that I have received so far. I have
uploaded another two letters (in five parts, since there are mulitple
sides), that can be found at the following URLs:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=15307

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=15311

In case someone sees this message after they expire, I have also
uploaded them separately, together with last week's letters and some
others that I hope to post to ViewMate later, here:
http://picasaweb.google.com/reproots/Documents

On ViewMate, I have described the letters in detail, but briefly, they
consist of two letters >from my grandfather's grandfather Majer to his
sisters in New York. Ideally, I would like to know the full contents
of the letters, but at minimum, I would like to know the basic idea
and any details about relatives that he mentions. Much appreciation to
anyone who can help in advance.

Best wishes >from warm Tel-Aviv,

BECKER #general

Barbara & David Israel
 

I am looking for information on Sam BECKER. He lived in Chicago in 1920
with his aunt and uncle: Isaac & Clara MAZUR. He was listed as a tailor in
a raincoat factory. I believe he was for abt 1897 in Latvia (Russia). He
later married a woman named Minnie.
I also know his grandfather was David Becker and I believe his father's name
was Eugene.
Any information on BECKER in Chicago would be helpful.

His wife Minnie BECKER was a witness to my grandfathers naturalization
papers and lived on Kennington Street in Chicago abt 1924.

burials in Warsaw even in the time of the Ghetto #warsaw #poland

rosef@...
 

Various branches of my husband's family were in Warsaw starting
about 1800, so I check the website of the virtual cemetery.

We found my mother-in-law's sister who died in Nov 1941 and was buried
with a grave stone, and a marker possibly for by husband's grandfather
on his father side, >from Dec 1941. But then these are people who
lived in Warasaw for many years.

His grandfather's name was Aron Feldman and according to the directories
of the 20's and 30's there were only 2 Aron Feldmans in all of Warsaw,
so hopefully there is a 50-50 chance this is his grandfather.
Only if we find documentation of Aron's father's name, will we know
if this is the right one. They are still adding information and
pictures to the database, so I suggest going back and checking every
week or two.

ELMAN and KATZ, probably from Braila #romania

Hello,
I would very much appreciate any information or matches that anyone
may have for the parents and family of Samuel (Shmuel) Silverman ELMAN
(born about 1835 in Russia, moved to Romania where he married & had
children, died Des Moines, Iowa).

He was married to Sarah (Hitsurah) KATZ (b. Romania abt 1850). Their
children John, Fannie, Ida M., Dora, and Joseph were born in Braila,
Romania. Son Lupa born Bucharest; son Samual H. born in an unknown
city in Romania.

An odd detail about the senior Samuel ELMAN is that his birth surname
was SILVERMAN, but to avoid the Czar's army he moved with an ELMAN
family >from Russia to Romania when he was a boy. We don't know if the
ELMAN's were neighbors, relatives, or what to the SILVERMAN family.

Thank you very much,
