WHARMAN of Buczacz (Buchach), Nadworna (Galicia) and Tzfat #general

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Dear fellow Genners, my gggggrandfather was R' Zvi Hersch Yonah
WHARMAN. He was the son of R' Israel Arieh Leib WHARMAN of
Buchach, son of Rabbi Abraham David WHARMAN of Buchach,
author of "Da'at Kdoshim". R' Zvi Yonah was married to Chana,
daughter of David Leib Magid of Nadworna, son of Rabbi Zvi Hirsch,
the "Nadworna Magid". David Leib was son-in-law of Meir of Berdichev,
son of the Levi Yitzchak. Zvi Yonah moved to Tzfat, I don't know when.
He died there around 1900. Little (actually nothing) is known about him
and his life. in one "Haluka" documnet in Tzfat he is called "Hersch
Yonah of Nadworna", which may indicate that he was living in Nadworna
before immigration to Israel. His ggrandson, Meir Brecher Z"l knew to
tell that Zvi Yonah had only daughters -- Henzia, Perel, Zipora, Nechama
and Vita. I descend of his daughter Henzia, through the Brecher
(Kohanim) family. I know nothing about his other daughters, or even
if they immigrated to Tzfat with him (Henzia moved to Tzfat with her
family in 1868). Any info on Zvi Yonah and his wife, their lives, and the
families that descend >from them will be most interesting! please reply
also directly to: yarpd@... Thank you, Yaron Pedhazur

Announcing the 1897 Census of Lomza and area #poland

Jose Gutstein
 

At the conference in New York, Jewish Records Indexing - Poland announced
exciting news about the indexing of the 1897 Census for the Lomza district
(including Lomza, Zambrow, Nowogrod, Wizna, and Sniadowo and smaller
villages in the area.)

Sources such as Censuses and Books of Residents often provide information
about previously unknown children or entire family branches.

In all, there'll be entries for more than 25,000 individuals. Since there
were fewer than 10,000 Jews in the town of Lomza in 1897, we expect there
will be many discoveries relating to nearby towns and villages where the
vital records are either missing or incomplete.

In some cases, records include entries for people born in other parts of
the then Russian Empire.

The census contains:

Surname, first name and father's first name.
Position within family (Head, wife, son, daughter)
Age
Marital state.
Social position, title.
Where born.
Place where registered in the Permanent Books of Residents.
Place currently living.
Remarks concerning absence.
Religion denomination.
Mother tongue (language).
Literacy
Place of studies (and place >from which graduated.
Occupation, side occupation and army service.

According to current estimates, there will be more than 20,000 entries for
Jews in the census plus another 4000 temporary residents >from outside the
Lomza district, such as yeshiva students, soldiers and prisoners (!) as well
as regular residents. Data entry has progressed well and approximately 8000
entries are currently available.

There are more than 2200 different surnames in the 8000 entries. Surnames
appearing 20 or more times in this preliminary file are listed below.

You can see all surnames >from the records indexed so far by going to
http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/status.htm#Lomza and clicking on the link
under Lomza 1897 Census.

There are 64 towns mentioned in the entries to date, and those appearing 8
or more times are also listed below.

The fundraising target for this project is approximately $8000. When these
funds have been raised, the data will be searchable online in the JRI-Poland
database.

While contributions of any size will be appreciated, a donation of no less
than $100 will make you eligible to obtain the Lomza area 1897 Census Excel
file of names indexed up to now, as well as all future updates.

Having the Excel file will enable you to sort the data by various fields as
well as to browse the names and possibly find family members for which you
had not thought to search.

SILBERMAN, KOSHINSKI of Tzfat, Uman, Kishinev #ukraine

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Dear Genners,

My ggggrandfather was Refael SILBERMAN, ABD Tzfat
(1839-1918). After many years of research, his roots
are still hard to trace:

- Refael was born in Uman, and so was his father
Mordechai. They moved to Tzfat in 1850. However,
according to family tradition the family lived in
Tzfat >from the times of the ARI, moved to Uman for few
dozens of years and came back to Tzfat. Nothing else
in known on Refael and Mordechai ancestors.

- Refael was married to Henya, daughter of Chaim
Baruch of Kishinev. it is a fact. However, in Tveria
census of 1855 we find him (or someone with the same
name) as son-in-law of R' Yom Tov Shu"v. Was he
married twice (Henya as 2nd marriage)?

- Mordechai was married to Ruchama, daughter of R'
Abraham Leib, Rav of Uman. we know nothing about him
or his family. A new detail is that Mordechai
mother-in-law came to Tzfat with the family, Yocheved,
and died in Tzfat.

- Another detail coming >from Tzfat census in 1855 and
1866: Mordechai has a wife called Treine or Shreine.
We think she is a 2nd wife. nothing is known about
her.

- Refael SILBERMAN was married to Henya, daughter of
Chaim Baruch of Kishinev (born in Kishinev c. 1805,
came to Tzfat c. 1860, still alive in 1875) Chaim
Baruch's wife, Leah, was daughter of R' Rlazar
KOSHINSKI. Elazar was a descendant of R' Gedalya of
Linitz, of the Chassidut very early generations. He
(Elazar) was also father-in-law of R' Menachem Nachum
Friedman of Shtefenesht (son of R' Israel of Rizin),
and of the Bender Rebbe. Nothing else is known on the
roots of Chaim Baruch or on Elazar Koshinski.

Any info on the above, or ideas on how to further
investigate, would be appreciated!

WEXLER from Novograd Volynski / Zvihil, Zvil (Ukraine) and Tzfat #ukraine

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Dear Genners,

I am researching the roots of the WEXLER family who
came to Tzfat >from Zvil (Novograd Volynski), Ukraine,
in 1858.

My ggggranfather was Yeshaya Yehuda WEXLER (nicknamed
Shaya Yudel). He was born in Zvil in 1837/9. His wife
name was Chana Golda (we don't know her maiden name or
if they were married in Tzfat or Ukraine). We know
they died in Tzfat, not sure when -- it was probably
before WW I.

Yeshaya's parents, Aharon and Leah WEXLER came to
Tzfat in 1858 as well.. Aharon was also born in Zvil,
1815/9. They were still alive in 1875 (Leah also in
1883). They probably died in Tzfat.

Additional details on the family:
- they were in charge of "Kolel Zhitomir" in Tzfat.
- Family members said Shaya Yudel used to visit the
Rabbi in Zhitomir.
- Aharon was "parnas" of Makarov synagogue in Tzfat.
The Makarov Rebbe was a Twersky, Chernovil dynasty.
- Shaya Yudel and Chana Golda had few known children:
1. Miriam Dvora, married Israel Leib BRECHER.
2. Alter WEXLER (1865-1934).
3. Chaya (born 1860).
4. Malka, married to Shlomo Noah REIZEL. He was
related to famous rabbinic families of Lachovitz,
Karlin and Chaba"d Rabbis. some of their children were
Shalom, Aharon, Yeshaya Yehuda (moved to Brazil). The
Reizel family is also related to MAtari family.

- Aharon WEXLER was called in the Monifiori Census
"Yachasin", which means he descends >from Rabbis, but
we don't know how or even who ...

I would appreciate very much any info on the WEXLER
family roots, on the people mentioned or descendants.
Also, if someone has any idea on how to trace the
WEXLER roots back in Ukraine -- it would be most
helpful.
Please reply aslo directly to: yarpd@...

Ancestry did this a lot for the later years. I encountered the same
problem to ships arriving on the West Coast, to San Francisco.

You could order the films to a local FHC, or ask the NY NARA to send
you a copy. FHC would probably be less expensive.

Has anyone else had similar issues? Does Geneolgy.com have these

family lived in Tzfat >from the times of the ARI, moved to Uman for
few dozens of years, and came back to Tzfat. Nothing else in known
on Refael's and Mordechai's ancestors.

- Refael SILBERMAN was married to Henya, daughter of Chaim Baruch of
Kishinev (born in Kishinev c. 1805, came to Tzfat c. 1860, still
alive in 1875) Chaim Baruch's wife, Leah, was daughter of R' Rlazar
KOSHINSKI. Elazar was a descendant of R' Gedalya of Linitz, of the
Chassidut very early generations. He (Elazar) was also father-in-law
of R' Menachem Nachum FRIEDMAN of Shtefenesht (son of R' Israel of
Rizin), and of the Bender Rebbe. Nothing else is known on the roots
of Chaim Baruch or on Elazar KOSHINSKI.

- Refael was married to Henya, daughter of Chaim Baruch of Kishinev.
it is a fact. However, in the Tveria census of 1855 we find him (or
someone with the same name) as son-in-law of R' Yom Tov Shu"v. Was
he married twice (Henya as 2nd marriage)?

- Mordechai was married to Ruchama, daughter of R' Abraham Leib, Rav
of Uman. we know nothing about him or his family. A new detail is
that Mordechai mother-in-law came to Tzfat with the family,
Yocheved, and died in Tzfat.

- Another detail coming >from Tzfat census in 1855 and 1866:
Mordechai has a wife called Treine or Shreine. We think she is a
2nd wife. nothing is known about her.

Any info on the above, or ideas on how to further investigate, would
be appreciated!

Dear Genners,

My ggggrandfather was Refael SILBERMAN, ABD Tzfat (1839-1918). After
many years of research, his roots are still hard to trace:

moved to Tzfat in 1850. However, according to family tradition the
family lived in Tzfat >from the times of the ARI, moved to Uman for

AUERBACH, LANDA of Tzfat #rabbinic

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Dear Rav-SIG-Genners,

My gggrandfather Elazar SILBERMAN, was the son of Refael SILBERMAN,
ABD Tzfat. Elazar was born 1864 (Tzfat), and died 1900, on the way
to get medical care in Beirut.

Elazar's wife, Sarah Soibel (who moved to NYC and died there, after
1933), was the daughter of Menachem Mendel AUERBACH and Maltze
LANDA. Family tradition tells that Maltze was descendant of
R' Yechezkel LANDA, the "Noda Be'Yehuda".

No other deatils are known for sure. I found in an archive a
document >from Tzfat signed by Menachem Mendel son of Yacov Zvi
AUERBACH. it may have been my ggggfather. If so, he may be the same
Menachem Mendel son of Yacov Zvi, whose tombstone is registered in
Tzfat Chevra Kadisha, and if so, he died in 1893.

Any info on the people mentioned, especially AUERBACH-LANDA roots
will be appreciated. I also know there was a long time AUERBACH
family in Tzfat and Tveria (and later JERUSALEM) of Chasidic
immigrations (also Ba'al-Shem-Tov descendants) but I could not find
the relation to my AUERBACHs till now.

WEXLER from Novograd Volynski, Zvil, and Tzfat #rabbinic

Yaron Pedhazur
 

Dear Genners,

I am researching the roots of the WEXLER family who came to Tzfat
from Zvil (Novograd Volynski), Ukraine, in 1858.
My ggggranfather was Yeshaya Yehuda WEXLER (nicknamed Shaya Yudel).
He was born in Zvil in 1837/9. His wife name was Chana Golda (we
don't know her maiden name or if they were married in Tzfat or
Ukraine). We know they died in Tzfat, not sure when -- it was
probably before WW I.

Yeshaya's parents, Aharon and Leah WEXLER came to Tzfat in 1858 as
well. Aharon was also born in Zvil, 1815/9. They were still alive in
1875 (Leah also in 1883). They probably died in Tzfat.

Additional details on the family:

- They were in charge of "Kolel Zhitomir" in Tzfat.
- Family members said Shaya Yudel used to visit the rabbi in
Zhitomir.
- Aharon was "parnas" of Makarov synagogue in Tzfat. The Makarov
Rebbe was a TWERSKY, Chernovil dynasty.
- Shaya Yudel and Chana Golda had few known children:
1. Miriam Dvora, married Israel Leib BRECHER.
2. Alter WEXLER (1865-1934).
3. Chaya (born 1860).
4. Malka, married to Shlomo Noah REIZEL.
He was related to famous rabbinic families of Lachovitz, Karlin
and Chaba"d rabbis. some of their children were Shalom, Aharon,
Yeshaya Yehuda (moved to Brazil). The Reizel family is also
related to MATARI family.
- Aharon WEXLER was called in the Monifiori Census "Yachasin",
which means he descends >from Rabbis, but we don't know how or
even who...

Main reason I put my inquiry in this SIG is that the WEXLER family
was married into Chasidic rabbinic dynasties (Reizel above + BRECHER
family who descends >from Berdichev, Nadworna and Buzcacz) + Aharon
mentioned as Yachasin himself.

I would appreciate very much any info on the WEXLER family roots,
and any relation they might have to rabbinic families.
