From Romania and Moldova to Paterson, NJ area #romania

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

A few weeks ago, I sent a message to the Lodz Area Research
Group and the BialyGen listservs as well as Jewishgen about
Jewish roots in Paterson, NJ. Many people >from Lodz and
Bialystok moved to Paterson, NJ when they left Eastern
Europe. I received many responses >from people whose families
came >from these two areas. However, I also learned there
were families who moved >from Romania, Moldova, and
South-Western Ukraine region to the Paterson area, some
living briefly in New York before moving to northern New
Jersey. Hence, I am sending the same post to this group.

Paterson, NJ, was a textile city, also known as the Silk
City. Often people moved there to find work in one of the
many textile factories in this industrial city. Mark
Halpern, the coordinator of the Bialystok ShtetLink lived in
Paterson as a young boy, and I, the coordinator of the Lodz
Area Research Group ShtetLink, lived there until I was 12
years old, when we moved next door to Fair Lawn, NJ. Mark
and I often half-joked (and
half-seriously) talked about the future generations who will
look for their roots in the archives in Paterson, NJ.

Since the IAJGS conference is being held in Philadelphia
next summer, we decided to put out feelers about how many
researchers would be interested in attending a Birds of a
Feather meeting at the Conference for the Paterson, NJ area,
which also includes Passaic, Kearny, and other nearby towns.
We have been in touch with the President of the Jewish
Historical Society of North Jersey as well as a few other
people actively involved in similar organizations involving
the history of Jewish Paterson. We decided that if there is
an interest, we would invite those people to attend. So far,
the responses to the earlier posts have been very positive.

As conference program Chairman, Mark is very busy now. We
agreed that responses to this inquiry would come to me.

All you have to do, is reply to me personally letting me
know:

1. your interest in a Paterson, NJ group
2. where your family came >from before moving to the Paterson
area
3. names of your family >from Paterson or nearby towns
4. any memorabilia you may have >from Paterson.
5. plans (even tentative) to attend the conference

Depending upon the responses, we will organize a Paterson
and area Birds-of-a-Feather meeting at the conference. If
this takes off, we will consider creating a Paterson
ShtetLink website on JewishGen.

Regards,
Roni

I'm looking for a kind Genner to help me with reading a passenger manifest.

name of his brother-in-law in New York.

Hello,

I saw that the brother-in-law resided at 40 Canal St.
Just wanted to note that my family has run accross this
address several times and it is not in the Census because
it is one of those places that helps getting people accross,
a broker or ticket agent or banker. Just thought people might
want to keep this for their records, so they don't waste anytime
looking for relatives at that address. You can google it and come
up with lots of hits, this one is on Jewishgen.

Hello,

My name is Marilyn Pisante and my mother's family comes >from Aydin in
Turkey. I happened to be on a trip in Turkey and so I visited Aydin. But
when I asked for information about a cemetery or a synagogue, people there
told me that there was nothing to be found there. Does anyone know anything
about how I could get more information about the Jews of Aydin?

Thank you very much.

Thanks so very much to all of you kind Genners who took the time to look up
my Great-grandfather, Abram Lechowitzky on the Passenger Manifest. The con
census of opinion is that he was going to his brother-in-law, M. SLESSINGER or

This is a wonderful group. Thanks again.

Translation from German #general

Israel P
 

I recently received a file >from Bad Arolsen, which purports to be for a
woman named Etel PIKHOLZ SENDEROVIC, >from Tarnopol. Most of the images
in the file refer in fact to Etel SENDEROVIC (whom I met a few years ago,
but who has since died), but a few are bare-bones references to a woman
named Eda PICKHOLZ who had lived in Krakow and had later been in
Budapest.

My first assumption was that these "Eda" cards were misfiled, but there
is one single-page document which refers to both women - perhaps
asserting that they are one and the same. But this document is in German
(typewritten) and I don't know what it says.

Would someone please have a look? http://pikholz.org/EtelEda.html

Thank you.

Re: Israel Pickholtz's question, Eve (Evie) WYNN JOHNSON, who was
married to actor Keenan Wynn and later to actor Van Johnson, was indeed
born KIMMEL. Evie's sister was my stepmother for a short time in the
1970s. I don't know where she was born or whether she had a different
first name, although her obituary in the online edition of The (London)
Independent, Aug. 28, 2004, refers to "her real name, Eve ABBOTT."
