JewishGen Future Scholars Fellows - Day 2 Recap #general

Nancy Siegel
 

After a delicious breakfast, and optional Shacharit prayer service at
the Nozyk Synagogue, the JewishGen Future Scholars Fellows visited the
POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews to learn about more than
1,000 years of Jewish life in Poland. In the afternoon, they began
their journey toward Lublin.

Along the way, they visited the Jewish Cemetery in Markuszow, which
provided a powerful contrast to the Warsaw Okopowa Cemetery.
Additionally, the Fellows will be decoding a particularly unique
Matzevah (tombstone) >from this cemetery as part of an evening session
next week, so this stop provided some on-site context.

In advance of arriving in Lublin, the Fellows read a fascinating
article written in 1957 by AC Majzels (faculty member Dr. Dan Oren's
Lublin-born grandfather), in which he recalled the Jewish Lublin of
his youth in the early 20th century. The article can be accessed here:
https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/lublin/AC_Majzels.html .

Once in Lublin, the Fellows visited the still-standing home of Dr.
Oren's grandparents, the place where a Sukkah was constructed and,
among other things, the building that housed the Yavneh School
(religious Zionist) on whose board AC Majzels served, and with whom he
is shown in the accompanying photograph.

After checking in to the Hotel Ilan (which occupies the famous
Chachmei Lublin Yeshiva), and dinner, the Fellows had an evening
session with Studnia Pamieci (Well of Memory) organizer Teresa
Klimowicz. Teresa has devoted a significant amount of time to cleaning
cemeteries and preserving Jewish memory in Poland, and her powerful
presentation was extremely well received.

Tomorrow, the Fellows will tour additional sites in Lublin, visit the
old Synagogue and cemetery in Tarnow, and eventually make their way to
Krakow for Shabbat.

Research assistance with names needed #general

Cindy Taylor
 

Genners,

Looking for someone with a better analytical mind than mine. I've got
brain freeze trying to figure this out.

If you have ancestry or look on family search for one Manson Kayoylisky
in the 1910 census in Portland, Maine, you will find that he is residing
with his brother-in-law and sister, Dora and Bernard Cohen. What I need
is to figure out the surname and try to find the town.

Bernard Cohen was >from Locachi and original name was KAHN. I'm assuming
that wife Dora (Dvorah) was >from the same neck of the woods. On various
documents, Dora's maiden name is Kovel, Caravelle, and numerous others
that just are not Hebrew/Yiddish/Jewish types of names.

What I have tried. Friend and researcher extraordinaire, Barbara Zimmer
suggested some various spellings of the surname, and I tried them all
and even some wild cards on my own. I assume that their accents must have
been quite thick to come up with the given name Manson, let alone the
spelling of his surname.

I've tried numerous combinations to be able to find "Manson's" manifest,
but once again, I've come up with Bobkas.

Can anyone think of a way to find out Dora's maiden name, and where her
brother "Manson" came >from in the olde country?

Thank you in advance for your any assistance you can offer me.

Re: Rav Shabsi Sheftel Weill or Weiss #hungary

tom
 

just a guess, but since WEISS is a much more common name than WEILL, and the german double "s" can be misread as a double "l", it's possible.

I just met a young man who told me he is a great great grandson of Rav Sheftel Weiss who was a renowned rabbi in Simani, Hungary.
Can anyone clarify for me whether in fact there was ever a Rabbi Shabsi Sheftel Weill in Simani, Hungary? I am thinking that this was a typo and should have been Weiss.

Need Advice for Further Hungarian Research #hungary

Larry Briggs
 

I am stumped and looking for advice on how to learn more about
ancestors in Hungary >from the mid-1800s and earlier.

To date I have used family records, internet research, including
Jewishgen and the H-SIG, and ultimately invaluable assistance >from a
Hungarian Jewish genealogy researcher, Karesz Vandor.

Through those steps, I have birth records for my Grandfather (Manes
Gottfried â?? (in the US George Max Gottfried) and his siblings, who were
born in Tolcsva, now in BAZ, Hungary. (Births >from 1875 â?? 1884). I
have a death record for my Great Grandfather (Moritz Bernat (Moshe
Dov) Gottfried) who died in Tolcsva in 1886. My Great Grandmother
(Zsani/Jennie Rothbart) and her 3 surviving children emigrated to the
US in 1891/ (I have their ships manifest, etc.)

from the 1869 Census, I know that my Great Grandfather was previously
married and had at least 3 children. I have information about the 2
sons who came to the US. We believe that his first wife died prior to
his marrying my Great Grandmother.

My Great Grandfather, Moritz Bernat Gottfried, was born about 1821 in
Varanno, Zemplen, Hungary, now known as Vranov nad Toplou, Slovakia,
The only specific information we have about my Great Grandfather's
parents is a reference on his gravestone in Tolcsva to the given names
of his father, my Great Great Grandfather, Gershon Manes. A surname is
not listed. I am assuming it was Gottfried, but I understand the use
of unchanging surnames was only begun in 1787, or possibly later.

Through DNA, I have found 1st and 2nd cousins whom I can confirm are
directly related.

Through DNA, I am getting lots of suggested relationships from
possible 3rd cousins and upwards, that don't seem to have any ties to
either pre-Trianon Hungary or the Gottfried or Rothbart families.

I am wondering about both changing surnames and migration patterns. I
have been to Tolcsva but haven't found any clues other than my Great
Grandfatherâ??s gravestone in the Tolcsva Jewish Cemetery.

I am in the SF Bay Area and missed Vivian Kahn's session at the
California Genealogical Society about researching Hungarian Jewish
relatives. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Requesting a photo of burial site (Cedar Park Cemetery, Oradel, NJ) - Hinde WANK #general

Joyce Eastman
 

According to what I have been told by Hinde WANK's granddaughter, Hinde WANK
was buried at the Cedar Park Cemetery in Oradel, NJ. Unfortunately she has
no paperwork indicating a death record or gravesite, other than the
knowledge of where her grandmother was buried. I have searched everywhere
online to find Hinde WANK's death record, but JewishGen's JOWBR,
FamilySearch.org nor Ancestry.com seem to have any record of her burial or
death.

Hinde WANK was born about 1876 in Brody, Poland. Her maiden name was
WILDER. She was married to Jacob WANK who predeceased her in 1908. He died
in Manhattan, NY and was buried in Baron Hirsch Cemetery in Staten Island,
NY. However, it does not appear that his wife, Hinde WANK, was buried at
the same location. I do not know the date of death for Hinde WANK. I am
hoping that one of the digest readers living in the Oradel, NJ area might
be able to visit the Cedar Park Cemetery to inquire about her gravesite in
order to possibly take a picture of it for me.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.

STEIN family of Manitoba and Saskatchwan #general

I would like to contact contemporary members of the STEIN family who settled
in the early 20th century in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

Gerson GLICKMAN #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I am doing some research on my wife's family. There was a Gerson GLICKMAN whom
we think was born around 1878-1880 in Goldingen (Kuldiga) in the Courland
province of Latvia. We think that his parents were Nathan (1853-1932) and
Rachel Mendelson GLICKMAN (1856-1922). Nathan and Rachel had five other
children: Lena Glickman LISTENES (1882-1960), Max Joseph GLICKMAN (1882-1918)
(my wife's grandfather), Bella Glickman LISTENES (1888-1962), Pearl (Pauline)
Glickman GANZ (1889-1963), and David GLICKMAN (1891-1980).

The family settled in Pittsburgh, PA. However, Gerson may have lived in New
York and worked as a presser or tailor. We think that a woman named Regina
may have been his wife. He seemed to be a "mystery man" in the family. He
died about 1964-1965.

I would like some information regarding this person. Please contact me
privately if you can add any information regarding his descendants.
