<< From: "Gary Kass" <gman425@nyc.com>
Could somebody please advise me on the best way to get a copy of my
grandfather's birth records? I have tried contacting embassies and
consulates and gotten very little help. >>

Embassies and consulates do not help with genealogical research as that
is not their purpose in life. Since you say your grandfather was born in
Vilnius, your best bet is to contact Joel Ratner, Joelrat1@hotmail.com
Coordinator for the LitvakSIG VRT Project for Vilnius. He can give you the
best advice.

Family names covered in the book include: Billigheimer, Bravmann, Dreifuss,

You Are Invited!! (Please forward to anyone you think would be interested.)

Not For Israel Only:
Using Israeli Archives & Resources for Worldwide Jewish Records
and FREE HEBREW, YIDDISH AND FRENCH TRANSLATIONS

By Michael Goldstein

Monday, December 11, 2006
6:30 PM Translation Services
7:30 PM Lecture
Auditorium, JCC, 3801 East Mercer Way, Mercer Island, WA

**Please have photo ID to enter building**


Israel holds a treasure of data relating to Jews throughout the world who
have lived in Palestine or Israel--as well as those who never set foot in
the Holy Land. Join us to explore prominent Israeli archives such as The
Hebrew University and National Library, the Joint Distribution Committee,
The Central Archives of the History of the Jewish People, Yad Vashem, and
lesser-known sources consisting of Israeli government databases, cemetery
records, landsmanshaftn, and others. We will touch on the importance of each
as a repository for records, books, photos and documents, as well as their
particular area of concentration.

About Our Speaker
Michael Goldstein, born in Montreal, is a Jerusalem-based genealogist who
researches, coaches and conducts workshops in Israel and North America. He
specializes in helping North Americans locate and connect with their Israeli
family, and has enjoyed particular success in tracing Israelis whose
testimonies are found in Yad Vashem records.

Free Translation Services: 6:30 - 7:20 PM
Michael is available before our session to translate documents, photos of
tombstones or other inscriptions in Yiddish, Hebrew or French.

JGSWS library materials are also available for research with the help of
Rabbi Doug Slotnick, our librarian. Please come early to take advantage of
this generous opportunity.

JGSWS programs are free for members, $5 for non-members.
All are welcome!

Can anyone tell me if the WEISSBLUMs that married the KESTENBERG,
WEXLER and KIRSCHBAUM families in the 1820-1830s in Krakow are
descendents of Rabbi Elimelech WEISSBLUM, the Noam Elimelech who
was born 1717, d.1787.

Is there a geneological study of Rabbi Elmelech WEISSBLUMs family
anywhere.

MANNES / BLUMENAU - Tukums. #latvia

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Searching for members of the following families:- MANNES and BLUMENAU –
originally >from Tukums – Latvia.

Bas Sheva (Batsheva) MANNES – husband’s name unknown - had 2 daughters,
Hilda born 1887 and Frieda – there may have been sons too – details unknown.

Hilda being a political activist in her teens, was sent to her family
PERLMAN (also >from Tukums) in New York – to be ‘calmed'. The Perlman family
descendants have no recollection of Hilda.

Hilda left New York after a few years for South Africa, joining her Uncle
Bernard BLUMENAU and family in Cape Town.

There she met and married in 1911 a Leopold KRUGER – originally >from Zagare
Lithuania. The couple moved to Pretoria and then settled in Johannesburg. In
1929 Hilda had her first child, a daughter Batsheva, and 16mths later
another daughter named Hilda Muriel. (Hilda senior died in childbirth, thus
the baby was named after her). In 1936 Leopold Kruger married a Celia Weiss
who unfortunately had an early demise. Leopold died in 1969 in Johannesburg.

In 1949 Batsheva married and went to live in Israel.

MANNES family – absolutely nothing is known if any members of the family
other than Hilda, left Tukums.

BLUMENAU family - Bernard was a well established businessman in Cape Town
by the time Hilda arrived in the early 1900’s – the Johannesburg BLUMENAU
family say they are not connected to the Cape Town BLUMENAUS – however since
both families originate >from Tukums and spell their surname exactly the
same, there has to be a common ancestor.

If anyone has knowledge of any descendants of the above, and know how the
families are connected, please contact me privately.

Thank you for your time.
