Schreiber family from Sropkov #hungary

dan@...
 

I am tracking three interrelated Schreiber families >from Stropkov =
in Zemplen County and trying to figure out how they fit together.

In particular, I am trying to identify the parents of Elimelech =
Schreiber of Stropkov (1823?-1891).=20

Several trees on ancestry.com (perhaps copying each other) identify this =
Elimelech Schreiber of Stropkov as the son of Salamon and Terez =
Valenstein Schreiber of Papa, Hungary. This assertion strikes me as =
doubtful.=20

Elimelech's death record says he was born and died in Stropkov; Papa is =
200 miles >from Stropkov. The memoirs of Elimelech's son Isidore =
Schreiber say Elimelech lived after his marriage in 1842 in a brick =
cottage in Stropkov adjoining the house of Elimelech's parents (not =
named), which seems to imply that they had lived in Stropkov for quite =
some time. Isidore describes Elimelech's family as a "respected" family, =
which implies deep roots in Stropkov. But the 1848 census finds Salamon =
and Terez Schreiber living in Papa, 200 miles away, with their eight =
children. Isidore also says Elimelech was "the only son" of his family; =
but Salamon and Terez Schreiber of Papa had at least four sons, =
according to the 1848 census.

I am grateful to anyone who can shine light on this puzzle.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake
 

Most of the Yizkor book excerpts I present each week are dramatic
ones: harrowing tales of survival, grim tales of death and struggles
of daily life. But I found myself touched by this affectionate
portrait of a father in this chapter >from the Yizkor book of Rokiskis,
Lithuania. In "My Father's Nigun" (melody), Shlomo Rubin remembers how
his father - someone who had no education beyond the cheder and at a
young age "had to hitch himself up to the wagon of life" - would wake
up early, and fortified by tea, "read the Psalms with such a touching
melody that engraved itself deep inside me." He was a man who saved
the best of the fish he sold >from his cart for his poorer customers.
And he was a man moved to copious tears in the synagogue, particularly
during the Day of Awe, when his cries sounded like they had been "torn
from the deepest cells in his heart - the pain that had collected in him
during an entire year."

GROSSBARD, BINDER, REBITZER/RIES, HALPERN, MINSKY - Vienna or NYC #general

Joseph Lonstein
 

In 1939, a SPERBER relative born in Sieniawa, Galicia and living in Vienna
listed on a concentration camp document that a Fanny GROSSBARD was his
closest relative in Vienna. Through the usual databases I found that this
woman was Fanny KUPFERSTEIN recte BINDER (b. 1892, d. 1943 Auchwitz) married
in Vienna to Adolf GROSSBARD (b. 1889, d. 1935 Vienna).

Their daughter was a Herta GROSSBARD (1918-1982) who came to the States in
1939 and married Hugo REBITZER (aka RIES) in Alabama, and the couple very
soon thereafter lived in NYC and later Haworth and North Bergen, New Jersey.

When coming to the States, Herta GROSSBARD listed a Jennie HALPERN in
Brooklyn as her aunt. In the 1940 U.S. census I found at the exact address
on Herta's manifest a Jennie HALPERN (b. 1884), likely the widow of Julius
HALPERN with children Isadore HALPERN (b. 1908; a school teacher), George
HALPERN (b. 1918; also a schoolteacher), and Bessie (b. 1909, married
MINSKY).

Anything ring a bell?
