Thank you for a precious resource.
I found names of relatives, some of them new to me.
The additional data for the known relatives included pictures and
biographies.
Some of the people mentioned [survivors] I knew personally, and I am
obviously excited.

Does anyone know a Mozes BLUMENBERG in Israel? #general

Leslie Weinberg <lbw50@...>
 

Recently I posted, asking about the possibility that my grandfather's
nephew, Mozes BLUMENBERG, >from Tyczyn, Poland, could have traveled
from Israel, where it is said that he lived >from the mid to late 30s,
till at least l945, and the feedback I got was that it would have
been next to impossible, if not impossible, for him to have done so.
I have, in the past, been fortunate enough to have a lot of very
helpful people in Israel, search to see if there was any record of
Mozes' arrival in Israel, >from Poland, or his departure. None were
found.

It's a stretch, but it may be more than possible that Mozes never
left Israel at all, and perhaps even changed his name, as many
European refugees did. Mozes was born January 31, 1920, to Jonas
Blumenberg, and Hene Eisen (my grandfather's sister). He had at
least two sisters, Rachaela, born 1923, and Zofia, born 1925. Hene
and Jonas' civil marriage certificate is dated 1920. Hene was born in
Tyczyn in 1890, to Schewa (Scheina, Sheba) Iram, and Chaim Eisen. My
grandfather, Markus, who came to the U.S. in 1913, was his maternal
uncle. He had an uncle Mozes, who was living in Czechoslovakia, and
there had been an aunt, Etel, who died fairly young. I have been
told that Chaim Eisen married twice, and that there were at least two
children >from that marriage, so Mozes would have had a half aunt
Ruchl Eisen, who owned a pension in Paris, and a half uncle in
Nagyvarad (Oradea, Romania today) whose name we do not know.

If anyone has any information about Mozes, or his family, please let
me know. Mozes himself could possibly still be alive. I do not know
why there was never any communication between him and my grandfather
over the years, but I have learned not to question family "quirks".
Mozes still has two first cousins living here in the U.S., and a very
large extended family here as well.

Thank you, Leslie Weinberg

Harbin memorabilia #general

Irene Clurman <isee@...>
 

On behalf of the Harbin Jewish Research Center, organized in 2004, I
am looking for anecdotes, memorabilia and especially copies of
photographs of daily life >from the Russian Jewish community which
existed in Harbin, Manchuria, before World War II. These will go into
the Research Center archives and may be used for an English-language
television documentary on the history of Harbin Jews.

My grandmother Ethel (Roza) Keilis Clurman came to Harbin as a child
in 1905, and my father Charles (Ruvim) Clurman was born and raised
there. He left at the age of 19 in 1937. My grandfather, Isko Chaim
Clurman, was abducted and killed by the Japanese military police in
1938 during the Japanese occupation of Manchuria. Any information
about the Keilis and Clurman families >from Harbin would be of
interest to me and also to the Research Center.

Gratefully, Irene Clurman

Master Shawn Caplan, son of Hillel and Joann Bernhardt Caplan, was
born in New Jersey, on November 20, 2006 (Heshvan 29, 5767), just a few days
before Thanksgiving. He was welcomed by his big siblings, Gwen and Owen, as well
as his grandparents, Neil and Judi Langer-Surnamer Caplan, and Irwin and
Bernice Appelbaum Bernhardt.
At his Bris, he was named Shimon in memory of his paternal
great-grandfather, Rabbi Samuel Langer Z"TL, whose Hebrew name was also Shimon.
And for those of you who are trying to keep track, this makes 6
Caplan grandchildren under the age of five,
A very happy Savta,
Judi Langer-Surnamer Caplan

Re: The Berlin Address Book - One additonal suggestion and "Thanks Roger" #germany

Pete Vanlaw <pvan@...>
 

I want to personally thank Roger Lustig for his step by step help in
accessing the Berlin Address Book. * See MOD Note below

Without it, I'm afraid I would have made a few vain attempts,
then walked away in frustration. Yet, in one sitting I've
been able to make some marvelous discoveries.

One additonal suggestion, however:
Assuming you've already increased the size of your selection
in the window, if you want to print just that section-
after pressing "Drucken",
select the radio button "Ausschnit",
and it will print only the blownup section you've selected.
Otherwise, it will default and print the entire page.

Thanks again, Roger! *

Pete Vanlaw Studio City, CA <pvan@...>

*MODERATOR NOTE:
I was hoping that a GerSIG member who is both fluent in German
and experienced in using the Online Berlin address books would post a step by step
guide. The recent request for help with this important but difficult
resource was one of many that we have received over the years.

I'm taking this opportunity to add my personal thanks to Roger Lustig for his
active and very helpful participation in our Forum. On behalf of all GerSIG

Philadelphia obituary and probate search request #general

David Priever
 

Hello fellow Jewishgenners,

Is there anybody in Philadelphia who is willing to do a swap with me and in
return I will do New York City research?

I am trying to obtain an obituary for Morris FRIEDMAN, died September 1978,
according to the SSDI, last residence, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. If you
are willing to do this look-up and, if he is the correct person, search for
a probate record, please contact me for more information.

This is related to a posting I made a few days ago relating to records of
Fort Dupont in Delaware. This is potentially the same Morris FRIEDMAN.

*Please note*: This is part of a mitzvah for someone who posted a message on
Jewishgen about two years ago. It is *not* their family either. I have been
unable to do anything for quite a long time and have gotten alot done in the
last few days and this may be the final task I will need to perform to reach
the final goal of finding this family.

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,

David Priever

Help with U.S. census inconsistency #general

Sam Lenger
 

Hi all
Chana BLUMENKOPF with her 3 children arrived in New York with the Potomac on
sept. 3 1921. In the manifest is stated that she came to met her husband
Willjam BLUM.
A lookup in the 1930 census shows the family as Anna BLUMENKOPF, William
BLUMENKOPF and the 3 children and there states that William imigrated in
1914.
But a lookup in the 1920 census does not found William BLUMENKOPF or BLUM.
How can I found the Jewish name of William (since it does not seem
reasanoble that he was registered with that name in Poland)?
Any hint is welcomed.
