My family has been blessed with a miracle that may warm the hearts of
anyone looking for their families history.

I received the following message >from Rabbi Foster Kawaler who is
responsible for most of the research on the Kawaler Family.

Dear Friends;

I am most blessed and privileged to present to you what is no
less than a miracle. Great Grandfather Abraham's Torah >from Krasna
has been found by searchers >from the Torah Rescue Foundation in a
monastery just north of Nadworna. The provenance is clear and
unmistakable. Further, the sofer has confirmed that the Torah is
Italian in origin. Please allow me to tell the story.

There is a family legend - and, up until now, only a legend -
that we had origins in Northern Italy. For years, I have been
researching the Cavalieri/Cavaglieri families of Ferrara and Venice.
The family took their name >from the Silk Worm >from which the
legendary Italian silk comes - the Cavalier. The family that tended
them - Cavalieri.

In brief, it would seem that two of the four sons of Davide
Cavalieri, namely Moise and Yakobe had begun a lumber business and
ran a small "tavern" in Udine and points north. Somehow, most likely
thanks to Napoleon, though it could be possible they were looking for
more forest land, they found their way into the Carpathian Mountains
to an area that was then part of the Hapsburg empire known as Galicia
(today in the Ukraine), and settled in Solotwina and Maniawa. Our
early family was in the very same business in those towns. It is
likely that either these two men or their children, operating in the
land of Ashkenaz, changed their name to the Polish Kawal(with a line
through it)er. The Hebrew-script spelling of both families are
spelled the same.

At least one of their children, Aryeh, took his Ashkenazic name
"Leibish" and married a lady named Rebecca. He had 7 children, whose
names match, in the proper generations, those of the Italian family,
with the exception of a few names that likely came in through his
wife's side of the family. My branch of the family comes down >from
Jacob (possibly named after his grandfather) who named his children,
to include two names that also appear in the Italian family, Sholom
Yitzchak, and my great grandfather Abraham (matching Abramo), named,
possibly, after a great uncle. He, in turn, named his boys Efraim
(>from his mother's side of the family since it does not occur in the
Italian family) and Moshe after his Italian great grand uncle or
great grandfather.

Up until now, we had no paperwork to support this - only
conjecture.

We roll the clock ahead to Abraham and his wife, Sarah and
their family in Krasna, just south of Nadworna. Abraham, his wife
and his children were farmers there, with an orchard along a creek
that wound through the property. Because his house was one of the
larger ones in the area, Jews >from the area would gather at his house
in order to "daven." He kept all the accouterments needed for
services in a locked area, including a small Torah. Abraham died in
July of 1939. His wife had died in 1912 and been buried in the
Jewish cemetery in Nadworna (her grave was found by the above
mentioned searchers!) There were several children that did not
survive, and they, too, were buried up there. His daughter Rachel
Menschenfreund had died in childbirth, and was also buried in
Nadworna. His daughter, Esther, still lived in the house, but her
children, Sarah and Clara, had married and moved away. Many of the
Jews that used to pray at Abraham's house also had either died or
moved on. So when the time came to transport Abraham's remains up to
Nadworna, Esther took the little Torah up to the main synagogue in
Nadworna for safe keeping.

Then Nazis invaded in 1939 and "captured" Nadworna. The
families in the South were murdered by the men of Einsatzguppe C, and
the city of Nadworna was ghettoized, with its Jewish population sent
to Treblinka and, for the most part, gassed.

The synagogue in Nadworna was of unique construction. Because
it was built in the day when no Jewish structure could be higher than
a Christian structure, the Jews of the day dug down some 15 - 20 feet
and THEN built up, so one would go downstairs to get in, but find
themselves in a lovely sanctuary with appropriately high ceilings.
The Nazis trashed the place and burned it out. We have some Nazi
aerial reconnaissance photos taken in 1940, that show the roof of the
synagogue missing. Unbeknownst to the rest of the population, monks
from the nearby monastery had gone into the synagogue and spirited
away the Torahs, the silver, and everything they could get their
hands on.

Roll the clock forward to May 18th of this year.

I was at my local pistol range. It seems I've become a pretty
good shot, and I've been getting involved in some competition, but
that's another story. My cell phone rang. It was a friend of mine
from Silver Spring, Maryland, Rabbi Menachem Youlas. He and his
father own and operate a Jewish book store. Vivian and I have known
him for close to 30 years. He is also a Sofer and heavily involved
with the Torah Rescue Foundation.

He started off asking me some questions about our family in the
Ukraine - the part that was once known as Galicia - and after I
described some of the situation, he revealed that I had just
confirmed that the stone that they had just found was, indeed, my
great grandmother's stone. And then he dropped his first bomb. "And
I think we found a Torah that belongs to you."

You can imagine my reaction. "No, I don't think so." He said
"Well, it all points to your family. The provenance is here." I
then told him the story about how my great grandfather had conducted
services in his house, so he must have had a Torah, but no one knows
what ever happened to it. "We all thought that the Cossacks or the
Nazis got to it!" He then told me about the monks having emptied the
synagogue, and had protected everything they could get their hands on
from the Nazis and later the Communists. There were a number of
Torah's that were the tall, thin, heavy Ukranian scrolls, but there
was this one Torah that "belonged to a Jewish farm family >from
further South that was apparently being kept for safekeeping. It's
got to be yours."

Then came the second bomb. Menachem continued "It's different
from the other Torah's in several ways." I interrupted him. "Tell
me it's a Sefardi Torah!" I blurted out. Now, understand that he has
no idea of our possible Italian roots and my Cavalieri research. His
answer: "How did you know!" He further describe it as an Italian
Torah. They can tell this by the "ktav" (writing style), the form
(Shulchan Aruch or Ari, etc), and the treatment of the parchment. It
was also on Atzei Chaim (handles) as opposed to being in a case.

At this point, I dropped the phone and had to steady myself. But the
best was still to come.

Menachem continued "Now that you've identified it so well, I
can tell you the best part. The Torah was wrapped in a sheet. When
we took the sheet off, we found the Torah was in really good shape,
and with a few hours of Sofrut work, IT WOULD BE COMPLETELY USABLE.
Furthermore, they found a tag on one of the Atzei Chaim, WITH MY
GREAT GRANDFATHER'S NAME ON IT!

We have recovered the family Torah, which was thought to have
been lost in the Holocaust, AND we have "snapped the link" with the
Italian family.

The Torah is now in Menachem's shop in Silver Spring. He
obtained a stamp >from the Israeli Government identifying and
assigning the Torah to us, and he is completing the sofrut work and
having the scroll dated. The Torah will be gloriously welcomed here
in Shreveport some time in the next three weeks. It is NOT going
into a glass case for people to gawk at! We are going to use it! We
will have the chance to read >from the same Torah that my grandfather
read from, my great grandfather, my great great grandfather, and
perhaps even his father read >from - and we will dance with it on
Simchat Torah! There is no greater honor for a sefer Torah to be
used for the purpose for which it was made.

Praise G-d, who lives, and watches over his people, Israel.

Nowy Sacz or Grybow Birth Record; RING, Herman #general

Nancy Ring Kendrick <ringgenealogy@...>
 

Dear Subscribers,

After a great deal of looking up information on JewishGen and JRI-Poland
sites, I still have a lack of understanding regarding who to write to for a
birth record for Nowy Sacz and Grybow.

I know that Herman RING was born in 1850 in either Nowy Sacz or Grybow, but
I am unsure about where to send for this record, or if it even exists. At
this point this is all the information we have to work with, so without a
month and an exact location, maybe I am "grasping at straws." I have no
idea who his parents were, or if he had any siblings.

Any assistance would be appreciated via private means.

EPSTEIN Family Y-DNA Study #general

Itzhak Epstein
 

Several Epsteins have joined in a Family Tree DNA
- JewishGen surname project. Painless
mouth swab genetic testing procedures are being
used as a promising tool for breaking through
our genealogical brick walls. It might help you
to greatly expand your family tree, and may
also help our surname project.

We have identified members of one paternal
lineage that has borne the Epstein surname
for several centuries. There are hints of another
old line. Most of the project's current
members, however, are patrilineally unrelated to
each other. In addition, most of us have
discovered patrilineal relationships to men whose
surnames are not Epstein.

We are working on identifying the various
branches of our principal cluster, on exploring
additional clusters, and on connecting our
unrelated members to cousins. To accomplish these
goals and to create as broad a search as
possible, we need more male Epsteins to contribute a
cheek swab as a DNA sample. If you are female
Epstein or an Epstein through female ancestors,
a sample >from an Epstein male relative can
represent your family in the test. If you are not an
Epstein, please share this message with Epsteins
who may want to participate in this project.

To join, go to
http://www.familytreedna.com/surname_join.asp?code=R56553&special=true
The basic, and most affordable, twelve marker
test will indicate to whom you are probably
related. The more advanced tests could help to
identify closer and more certain relationships.
You can start with the 12 marker test and add to
it at a later date, using the same sample.

If you have any questions, please contact Marsha

ROSENTHAL in Britain #general

Walter Rosenthal <rwrx@...>
 

Background: My father, Samuel ROSENTHAL, was born in NYC in 1890. His
parents obviously arrived sometime earlier. Both his birth and marriage
certificates list his father's name as Wolf and his mother's maiden name as
Annie Rosenthal, the same as her husband. My grandmother (Annie) told me
that she came >from Europe through England. Her cousins who remained in
Britain who had no direct memory of her

Question: Which sources can I use to determine the possible British
embarcation ports in 1888-1890. This might give me the ships' names, each
ship's manifest, which could then provide my grandparents' European home
town? If I can locate the town, then further research might bring me closer
to finding my roots.

Any help will be most appreciated.

Hello Vivian,

I may be out of date, and have not followed all info.
Location and cost of the IAJGS conference?
Is anybody going to create a video-tape of your session on Hungarian
research? Something that could be distribuuted to those not able to attend? Video,
or other distribution may be of interest to others as well.

I'm very pleased about the interest in the workshop I'm presenting at
the IAJGS conference on Hungarian research sources on the web.
Registration for this session opens on Sunday and will continue until
the numbers exceed available computers. I believe that we can handle
25 students per session. The session will be on Thursday, August
17, >from 2:45 to 4 pm.

This promises to be an outstanding conference. Click on http://
www.jgsny2006.org/ to check the program on-line. Make sure to leave
time for the Hungarian SIG business meeting, which will be held right
before the workshop >from 1:15 PM - 2:30 PM on Thursday, and the
Hungarian SIG luncheon at 12:30 on Tuesday, Aug. 15. We're working
out arrangements w. our luncheon speaker and hope to have an
announcement very soon.
