ROSE nee ADDLEMAN #lithuania

Angie Elfassi
 

Hi,

I have on my tree a Rose nee ADDLEMAN born in the UK
about 1899. Daughter of Maurice ADDLEMAN and Betsy
nee COHEN m. 1895.

Rose's father Maurice ADDLEMAN was born in Kovno and
her mgfather Max COHEN was >from SAKIAI. Im not yet
sure where her mgmother: either Fanny or Annie was
from. Either LIthuania or Poland.

Rose died in Israel about 1980 and her married name
may have been COHEN. She was born in Wolverhampton,
UK. Apparently one of her brother's paid for her body
to be flown back to England for burial.

This is not directly Lithuanian, but because of the
connection through her father Maurice ADDLEMAN and her
grandparents COHEN, Im hoping the moderator will let
it published.

Anything ring any bells to anyone?

Regards
Angie Elfassi

Radom Books of Residents Project half completed - 17,000 entries #general

Carol Isaak
 

I am pleased to announce that indexing of the Jewish entries in the
Books of Residents for the city of Radom is now halfway complete.

The indexing of these volumes is part of the Jewish Records Indexing -
Poland Archives project.

There are more than 17,000 entries to date. The final count should
be between 35,000 - 40,000. As most experienced researchers of
Polish Jewish records are aware, the Books of Residents are *more*
valuable than vital records because they list families as units. Each
entry includes Name, Surname, Father Name, Mother Name, Date
and Place of Birth and Occupation. In some cases, the Date of Death
or other notes are included.

There are a total of 3656 distinct surnames or variations of surnames
in the database. A list of all surnames appearing 100 or more times
is included. A surname frequency list is available upon request.

There are 719 towns in addition to Radom that are listed as place of
birth. A list of all towns appearing 18 or more times is included below.
A town frequency list is available upon request.

For information on this project, please do not hesitate to contact me.

new listing of German Jews killed in the Holocaust #general

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

A news story >from the Deutsche Presse-Agentur reports on a new, expanded
list of German citizens who were killed in the Holocaust. The four-volume
register, compiled by Germany's Federal Archives, was introduced at a
ceremony at Berlin's New Synagogue on Monday. The register updates an
earlier edition which listed only victims >from the former West Germany. The
new version contains 150,000 names, including victims >from all of Germany
and parts of modern Poland.

This new publication certainly sounds like the long awaited update of the
two-volume Gedenkbuch (_Gedenkbuch-Opfer der Verfolgung der Juden unter der
nationalsozialistischen Gewaltherrschaft in Deutschland 1933-1945_),
published in 1986 by the Bundesarchiv, Koblenz.

The article, "Germany updates official list of Jews murdered," appears on
the web site of Boston's Combined Jewish Philanthropies
(www.cjp.org/content_display.html?ArticleID=183297). It also mentions that a
computer database of Jews in Germany, based on the 1939 Minority Census, can
be consulted at the New Synagogue, and that the Archives is working to
compile list of all Jews who lived in Germany between 1933 and 1945.

I have no information beyond what is in the article online.

Wysocki #belarus

According to Beider's Jewish Surnames of the Russian Empire, Vysokij, the
Russian spelling does mean tall. It is a surname based upon a personal
characteristic, that is one who is tall. When this family either adopted or were
assigned a mandatory hereditary surname they may have been taller than most
people and therefore received that name. If they had moved to a German speaking
area, the name might have become gross or hoch; in a Spanish speaking country
(Sephardim, alto. Because of alphabet differences >from one country to the next
names underwent a transformation to the spelling of that land or to an
equivalent meaning or sometimes remained as is. For more information you can check
out my website on the Kolomea Research Group where I look up the origin and
meanings of family surnames of interest for all the members.

Help needed in locating place of US death #general

Mimi Katz <GeveretKatz@...>
 

Fellow Genners,
Would you please help me get through a brick wall? I am looking for the
death record of an uncle who disappeared >from the family. The last known
record I can find is his World War 1 draft registration, which placed him in
Cleveland in 1918. If any of your states have online death indexes that you
can easily search, would you look for the following:

Harry VOGEL
born: June 18, 1896, Chicago
parents: Emanuel & Frances VOGEL

Thanks so much for your help.

Searching for descendants of Michael BERNSTEIN of Brooklyn, NY #general

Beth Galleto
 

I am trying to locate descendants of Michael
BERNSTEIN, born 1872, a brother of my great
grandfather Joseph Bolker and of my great uncle Zelig
Becker.

I found Michael in the 1920 census on Marcy Avenue and
in the 1930 census on Sumner Avenue, both in Brooklyn.
Michael’s wife was Esther. His children were Hyman,
Samuel, Isador, Benjamin, and Faye. In 1930 Michael
was a tailor, Hyman a plumber, Isador made leather
pocketbooks, Benjamin was a shipping clerk, and Faye
managed a beauty parlor.

According to the censuses Michael immigrated in 1890
or 1893 and Esther came in 1896 or 1897 with Hyman.
They were naturalized in 1910.

I believe that later Isador called himself Irving, his
wife was Millie, and their children were Elaine,
Howard, Teddy, and Toby, who would now be in their 50s
or 60s. They are my second cousins once removed, and I
would like to contact them and any others who are
Michael’s descendants. Please email me at
galleto@... with any information.

Old records in Grodno #general

david nathan <d.nathan1@...>
 

Following Rennie and Jack Salz's request about old records in Russia, what
are my chances of finding old records in Grodno, which, at the time I want
(ie around 1900) was part of the Russians Empire?

I am trying to dig out details of my wife's family. Her grandmother's
maiden name was STEINGART, but we have no information at all about the name
her grandfather's family used before emigrating to England around 1902. Here
they adopted the name FREEDMAN, they being "a freed man >from Russia" which
was grandfather-in-law's favourite mantra when asked about the old country.

All we have to go on is the name of a professional photographer, Ch.A
EZERSKOLOGO , on the back of a picture of a middle-aged couple (possibly the
parents of one of them) taken in Grodno at the turn of the last century (as
identified by clothing).

Any and all suggestions welcome.

I need information before Palestine became Israel
I First let me say I am so very grateful for
the help I got on my last question. All the people were in the newspapers
that I requested and I was truly amazed at the information I got and found a
few more names of family. I couldn't of been happier .I am searching for
any information on my great grandfather Mordko PACHMANN or PACHMAN Israel
or any of his descendants or siblings anywhere in the world .All his
children were born in Borszczow, Poland. I don't know if he was. He left
after his wife Sure GOTTFRIED died in 1894 and went to Palestine I would
like to know if he remarried had another family and where he was buried.
Also if Sure GOTTFRIED had any siblings. I just received information on my
aunt and uncle after they escaped >from Vienna they were killed by arabs in
Palestine. Josef BERGLER and Zipora BERGLER or Fanni BERGLER both on the
same day march 8, 1946. I would like to know what happened to them and
what cemetery they were buried in.And if there was fighting in Palestine on
that day. I am assuming that my aunt took a Hebrew name and was buried as
Zipora because my mother said her name was Fanny they came originally >from
Nadworna,Poland >from the Hass ,Brandner ,Bergler family . Also looking for
any family with those names and would be grateful for any help I can get.
thank you so much

Laying tefillin on board ship #general

Israel P
 

We have a case of a thirteen year old boy who travelled to the US with his
father in 1900, but to save money he was listed as eleven years old.

My first thought was "What about his tefillin?" Would it have caused a
problem is he had been "caught" doing what an eleven year old shouldn't be
doing, thus giving away the cheating on price? Would anyone have cared?
Would he have been able to do so off in a corner where no one would notice?
Or did he perhaps learn a lesson about saving money even at the cost of
religious obsevrance?
