INTRO - Researching the WOLFSTHAL Family #germany

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

Dear GerSig members,
I just joined the group. A Computer Scientist by profession, a
beginner in genealogy research.

I am looking for information about the WOLFSTHAL family. The three
branches of the family that I know of are:

(1) The Musicians branch:
Including Chune WOLFSTHAL , Josef WOLFSTHAL , Bronislaw
WOLFSTHAL , and others. They lived in Ternopol, and other places.

(2) The Lwow branch:
Maxymilyan WOLFSTHAL's, whose compelling holocaust memoirs are in
USHMM, is a member of this branch.

(3) The Husiatyn branch:
Chaim Baruch WOLFSTHAL is one of the early ancestors of this branch.
Parts of this branch, including my ancestors, immigrated to
Israel before WW2 and thus survived WW2 horrors.

I have mapped in a fair level of detail the internal family
relationship within each of these branches, separately >from each
other.
I have yet to discover how they connect together. Family folklore
indicates they are all connected. I am looking for help in uncovering
this connection.

A related question is the switching of some of them between the
surnames WOLFSTHAL and WOLFTHAL. As an example, I have an
Naturalization Application where one of the WOLFSTHAL musicians
identifies himself to the interviewing officer as WOLFTHAL known as
WOLFSTHAL. I wonder what is the meaning and significance of that.

Thank you --- Prof. Yaron WOLFSTHAL, Ben-Gurion University, Israel

Wiesbaden-Biebrich and Mosbach [Seek families of former Jewish residents] #germany

Dear GerSIGgers,

A few years ago I published an inquiry on this wonderful forum. I was
looking for people with roots or relations to Wiesbaden-Breckenheim and
Delkenheim because we started to edit the first volume of the Family
Book of Jewish families in Wiesbaden. This first volume has been published.
Thanks to all who sent information.

Now we are at the beginning of the second volume:
Family Book of Jewish Families in Wiesbaden-Biebrich including Mosbach.
So we are now looking for people with roots or relations to one of the
mentioned places.

If you have any information about Jewish families formerly living in
Biebrich or Mosbach you are very welcome to get in contact we me.

Thank you very much in advance and best regards,

SIROTIN family from Pyetrykaw (Petrikov), Belarus, and FRIEDMAN from Pyetrikov and later Minsk #general

Orit Lavi
 

Dear friends,

Israel Yakob SIROTIN resided in Petrikov, Belarus, and had at least 3 sons.
As far as known, both he and his wife died (or killed) before 1920.
The 3 known sons immigrated to Israel as orphans in the 1920s.
I would be grateful for any info on additional children >from this family.

These 3 orphans had a cousin, David Aizyk FRIEDMAN, who resided in Minsk in
the mid 1960s, and was trying to contact them.
Any info on the relative David Aizyk FRIEDMAN >from Pyetrikaw and later
Minsk, would be most appreciated.

Thanks as always,

Orit Lavi

Name's the same? #poland

bernerfolk
 

I have several Bialystok records related to Fradl Schneider but
with varying patronymics:

1869 birth of her daughter: Fradel Feigel daughter of Menashe
1872 birth of her daughter: Fradel Leibovna
1878 birth of her son: Fradla Majerowicz
1881 her death: Fradel Feigel daughter of Menashe

I'm reasonably certain these are all for the same woman so I'm
wondering whether there's a connection between the three different
patronymics? or are they likely translation issues?

I suspect Fradel's maiden name was KAPLAN but that's only suspicion.

Kishinev Yizkor book #bessarabia

I agree with Yefim, it can be difficut trying to purchase this book
via JewishGen or other sites. Confusing directions, links that don't
work, etc. I finally found one and ordered it (about $36)

go to:

Re: Kishinev Yizkor Book #bessarabia

Hi everybody,


You  know already that a Kishinev Yizkor Book was published by JewishGen.

In addition to the translation, which was done mostly by Sheli Fain, there are additional material for you
in that book, like chronological history of Jews in Kishinev, and more.

I personally like to hold a book in my hands, and I am enjoying having a very good published Kishinev
Yizkor book with a nice cover, photos, etc.

But, I realized that some of our members do not know that the translated books are available online
at JewishGen.org at the Yizkor section.  It might not be easy to find the book at the website,  the
easiest way might be to search for Kishinev in Town finder, and at the Kishinev page to click on Yizkor
book link.

I hope this helps, and remember that there many other books available already, and some of them are
in translation.

All the best,
