Re: KINSBRUNNER and uncommon surnames #romania

This is a reminder that, if you are trying to determine in what towns an
uncommon surname occurred, it can be very helpful to search the 1924/1925
Romanian business directories hosted by the Library of Congress via
www.kalter.org/search. Doing this, I found eight KINSBRUNNERs in Cernauti,
most with given names, occupations, and street addresses (details sent to
poster).

research based analysis of the various ways genealogists tell the

We are soliciting articles on the techniques used in putting

introductory pages of rabbinic manuscripts often give important
clues to the peer group and travels which bring to life the
biography of our families in their community.

Tell us how you pieced your story together. Did you

. Search the Internet tabulating, analyzing and creating lists of
resources, records, and record groups?
. Form a common interest group? Collect archival data together?
. Put up a website? What information did you want to share and what

Rabbi A Z ZHERDIN #rabbinic

Dear Researchers,

I have just received a copy of a postcard sent to Rabbi A. Z.
ZHERDIN, care of Sarrah in Shtetl Szerzhen in Mogilev gub. on 26
December 1916.

I know that Sarrah is Sarra KWIN, a sister-in-law of Bluma ZHERDIN
who was my great-great-grandfather's sister. I would assume that
Rabbi ZHERDIN was a relative.

Can anyone help identify him?

Searching for descendants of Arie LUKACHER, submitted Yad Vashem POT in 1956 (definitely related to me) #general

Deborah Dworski <ddworski@...>
 

I am searching for any descendants of Arie LUKACHER who submitted Pages of
Testimony to Yad Vashem in 1956 on behalf of his parents. Arie's father was
Nachum DIENER, born 1868, son of Pesach & Rosa DIENER, >from shtetl Horodenka.
Arie's mother was Tauba LUKACHER, born 1873, daughter of Mordechai & Rakhel
LUKACHER, also >from Horodenka. Arie's father and paternal grandparents appear on
an old DIENER family tree which I inherited, so I am certain he is related to me.
I believe any descendants would be located in Israel. If you have any leads,
please contact me privately.
Thank you.

Hello All,
I need help translating 4 or 5 vital records >from shtetl Rypin, Poland. Though the
documents (>from circa 1860) are not particularly difficult to read, I couldn't
upload clear images to ViewMate--maybe because my computer skills are not great.
In any event, I am hoping for one or more volunteers to whom I can mail copies of
the birth and marriage certificates for help with translation. If you are able to

ROSENSTRAUCH - PLATTER - LANDER - BORNSTEIN - MANUEL - Anarchists/Bundists/Socialists #france

bostonjw@...
 

Hello,

My great grandfather, Henry ROSEN (Henry ROSENSTRAUCH) was born in the
Tarnopol area but lived in Paris until emigrating to the U.S. in 1907.
He had several brothers and sisters, who, with their respective
spouses, remained in Paris until, and in some cases after, WWII. Some
of them survived the war, some did not - perishing in the deportations.
At least four of my great-grandfather's nephews survived the war, and I
have letters >from two of them describing their experiences. I would
like to find them (if, by any chance, any are still alive) or their
descendants, if any. I would also like any information you may have on
any of the people discussed below. I can also provide YOU with the
information I have on the names listed here, if you have a connection.
I have many photographs and letters to share.

First of all, my great-grandfather Henry had brothers Jacob, Joseph,
and Isaac ROSENSTAUCH, and sisters Regina PLATTER (nee ROSENSTRAUCH)
and Bronye LANDER (nee ROSENSTRAUCH), as far as I can determine. At
least Henry, Regina, Bronye, and one other brother (not sure which)
lived in Paris by 1923. More may have lived there, but I do not yet
know.

Otto, Henri, and Edouard ROSENSTRAUCH were brothers, and Henry
ROSENSTRAUCH's (my great-grandfather's) nephews. I do not know which
of my great-grandfather's brother's sons they were, but they all
survived the war. Otto was a dentist and I know he had been deported to
Drancy. Henri had been interned at Rivesaltes. Edouard hid somewhere
else in France the duration of the war and ultimately died sometime in
the 1950's. They all married gentile women and that is partially why
they were able to survive. Do you have any information on these men or
their descendants?

Armand/Hermann LANDER - son of Ignace LANDER and Bronye (ROSENSTRAUCH)
LANDER -- was apparently in the French army, and found himself in a POW
camp instead of a concentration/death camp (thus surviving the war).
Ignace LANDER, his father, died at Auschwitz; Bronye evidently died of
illness before being deported. However, Armand/Hermann LANDER survived.
Did he have any children?

Leon PLATTER and Regina (ROSENSTRAUCH) PLATTER - I do not think they
had any children, but perhaps I am wrong. They both perished in the
deportations. They had a restaurant at the corner of Rue des Rosiers
and Rue des Ecouffes that is now a Falafel place called "mi-va-mi." If
you live in Paris and would like to show the people at mi-va-mi a
picture of the restaurant >from the very early 1900's, I will email it
to you.

The PLATTERs and LANDERs are memorialized at the gravesite of my
great-great-grandmother Mme. la veuve ROSENTRAUCH, nee Esther FINK, in
Cimetiere Bagneux-Parisien.

Other names associated with my great-grandfather's family are Gaston
BORNSTEIN, whom I now know perished in Auschwitz, and the "famille
MANUEL." I do not know anything else about the connection between a
MANUEL family or M. BORNSTEIN and my family, but the names are listed
on my great-great grandmother's death announcement.

If you have information on any of these people or their descendants, I
would certainly appreciate it if you passed it along. If you think any
of these people might be YOUR family, I will be happy to share my
information with you. I have letters and photographs >from most of the
people I've described.

Finally, I have many letters and postcards >from my great-grandparents'
political associates both in Paris and Warsaw. I have not inventoried
the names as yet, but if your family members were involved in the Bund,
or were otherwise radical in Paris or Warsaw at the turn of the 20th
century, maybe we can compare notes.

Thank you.
