Kishinev Yiskor Book #bessarabia

Alan Levitt
 

I just received a copy of the "Jews of Kishinev," a 240 page Yiskor
book originally published in Hebrew in Tel Aviv in 1950. It is a lot
more that just about Kishinev Jews. Skimming through it, you can
easily see it provides not only detailed descriptions about the
pogroms and life before and afterward, but much information that can
offer context and deeper understanding to other areas of Bessarabia,
as well. And, our own Bessarabia SIG founder and leader, Yefim Kogan,
translated it.

JGS of Maryland March 24, 2019, program #general

Susan Steeble
 

Speaker: Peter Wambach
Title: ">from Whence We Came"
Date and Time: Sunday, March 24, 2019, 1:30 p.m.
Location: Pikesville Library's meeting room, 1301 Reisterstown Rd,
Pikesville, MD

Please join us on Sunday, March 24, 2019, to hear Peter Wambach
present ">from Whence We Came." This genealogy search began with a
challenge >from Peter Wambach's father to his children to research his
family history and ancestry. His father was an only child whose father
died when he was only 4 years old, so he knew very little about his
father. He wanted to "touch the hand of a living, breathing relative."
This talk describes this search, which extended to three continents,
and its eventual outcome.

Peter Wambach was born in Harrisburg, PA, on May 12, 1946, and was the
sixth of the fourteen children of Peter and Margherita (Zarbo)
Wambach. Educated in the parochial school system in central
Pennsylvania, he graduated >from Penn State University with a BS degree
in 1970. He worked in the open hearth of Bethlehem Steel Corporation,
in real estate sales, as a lobbyist, and as an executive in a
construction firm. He retired in 2006 after a 36-year career with the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, having served as an employee in the
House of Representatives, Revenue, Property and Supplies, and General
Services departments. In addition, he served 12 years as a member of
the Pennsylvania House of Representatives >from 1980 to 1992. He is an
11-year member of the Board of Trustees of Harrisburg Area Community
College. He resides in Harrisburg with his wife, Urszula. He is the
father of two children and two step-children and has three
grandchildren.

The program is free for paid members and $5 for non-members (applied
to JGSMD membership fee) after their first meeting. Please check our
web site at www.jgsmd.org for late updates and for the time, location,
and program of future meetings.

Jewish charities in London ca. 1900 #general

David Scriven
 

Dear All,

My great-uncle, Wolf Kramarov (later Ze'ev Carmi), writes in his
autobiography that when he arrived in London >from Amsterdam he was
met by "an emissary of some charitable institution, Schlater", where
apparently he stayed for eighteen days in order to find his feet in
this new country.

Unfortunately, his time was there unsuccessful and after failing at a
number of jobs, in despair and destitute, he decided to return to his
native Russia >from whence he had fled to escape conscription. By
chance he came across another charity which he refers to as the
"Board". and there three English gentleman listened to his story and
gave him money to return, which he did - steerage class to Hamburg.
However, he never returned to Russia, but instead ended up in Galicia,
where he met my family and married my grandmother's older sister.

Does anyone recognize these charities (the names are translated >from
Hebrew) and, if so, would there be any records of my great-uncle's
interactions?

Second, is it likely that there would be a record of his trips by
ship to and >from London?

A "Fensterreinigungs-Institut" was a window cleaning service. There
were such businesses in numerous German towns in the early decades of
the 1900s.

Does any one know where I can find immigration records for Argentina in the
early 1900's? I may have found a relative who was born in the Ukraine and
emigrated to Argentina in the early 1900's, but I need more information
about him. His name was Isaac Boidman. He may be related to my grandfather,
Morris Bothman.

HERSCHER family from Budapest #france

Selma Sheridan
 

Dear researchers,

I am trying to learn about the family of my cousin's husband. Here is the
background.

My father's mother had a sister, Cecilia BAUCHMANN, who lived in Budapest.
Cecilia married David CENNOVER / SYNOBER. They had 3 daughters: Ilona, Sara,
and Anna.

Sarah married Mathias HERSCHER. His parents were Natan / Nachmann HERSCHER
and Dora / Dwora ASDERBALD / ASDERBALL >from Budapest. The young couple
moved to France, in the early 1920s. They had 3 daughters, born in France:
Cecile (born in Roubaix), Odette (born in Paris), and Marguerite (born in
Lens). The family was deported >from France on different convoys and
murdered at Auschwitz.

Thus far, I know nothing more about Mathias and his family. Where in
Budapest did his parents live, what trade or profession did they have? Did
Mathias have siblings, aunts and uncles? What school did Mathias attend,
what was his profession? Did he have a religious marriage and / or civil
marriage in Budapest, before moving to France?

Another question concerns Sara's older unmarried sister, Ilona CENNOVER, who
travelled to France around 1930 to help Sara with the children. We don't
know what route she took, whether through Switzerland or Germany. Family
lore says that Ilona was "lost" somewhere in France, and was never heard
from again. What happened?
I was in Budapest in 2002, visited the gorgeous Dohany synagogue. I don't
speak Hungarian, and could not get help at the archives. Any help from
researchers would be greatly appreciated.

Special double presentation at March 24 Jewish Genealogical Society of Illinois meeting #general

events@...
 

March 24, 2019, JGS of Illinois meeting features two genealogy talks:

"The Margarine Moonshiners >from Minsk" and "Conducting Story-Driven
Research" will be the topics of two lectures by genealogist Tammy A.
Hepps at the Sunday, March 24, 2019, meeting of the Jewish Genealogical
Society of Illinois at Temple Beth-El, 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook,
Ill.

Registration and networking will open at 12:30 p.m. For this meeting
only, the JGSI library and help desk will not be available. For more
information about this event, see the Jewish Genealogical Society of
Illinois website at https://jgsi.org/event-3163700 or phone
312-666-0100.

---At 1 p.m.: In "The Margarine Moonshiners >from Minsk," Hepps offers a
"rollicking genealogical journey tracing a group of brothers and
brothers-in-law recently emigrated >from Minsk, who set out to sell
margarine as butter in defiance of one of the stranger pieces of
legislation ever passed." Part of the action in this family history
adventure takes place in Chicago.

---At 2:30 p.m.: In the second presentation, "Conducting Story-Driven
Research," she explains how thinking of your family history research
like a storyteller can make you a better researcher and can help you
think of questions to ask about your family history that you might not
have thought of before.

Tammy A. Hepps is a technologist, genealogist and storyteller. The
creator of Treelines.com, a family story-sharing website, and winner of
the RootsTech Developer Challenge, she lectures internationally about
combining creative research, cutting-edge technology and meaningful
