Searching for ALEF from Lomza, possibly now in England #general

ZIP908@...
 

I recently found an entry for an Alter ALEF in the Pinkas HaNNitzolim I -
Register of Jewish Survivors database. His name came >from the Surviving Jews in
London list in that data base. I understand that the actual list may contain
additional information about this person, who may be part of my mother's
family. Could someone please tell me if it is possible to see the complete Pinkas
HaNitzolim I, or the particular list I need.

My mother's maiden name was GALEF, which was "accidentally" created when the
first ancestor, Gabriel ALEF, immigrated to the US >from Lomza, Poland, in
1880. Virtually all GALEFs in the US are related to me. I recently found
listings in the JRI-Poland data base for several ALEFs and have developed a family
tree going back to the early 1800s, but this reference to Alter ALEF is one of
the few I have been able to find for any Polish relative who may have survived
the Holocaust. It also raises the possibility that I have relatives in England
that I never knew about.

Therefore, could someone please advise how to find out whether there are any
ALEFs currently in Engalnd?

Any information would be appreciated. You can respond to me privately.

Susan Cooper <suzecooper@...>
 

Where are all the Varniaians?
Varniai (Vorne or Varne in Yiddish) in north-western Lithuania
was a town well known for its synagogue, yeshiva and scholars.
It was the home of the charitable Rabbi Chanania.
The Jewish population in 1897 was 1,226, although emigration to
America, Great Britain and South Africa had begun many years
before.
Many families in USA, Australia, South Africa, Ireland and
England are descended >from Varniain emigrants.
There are 9000 records in the Lithuanian archives relating to
Jewish families in Varniai (Vorne) which are waiting to be
translated.
If you are interested in the latest information regarding Jewish
birth, marriage and death records for Varniai, please let me
know and I’ll be glad to bring you up to date.

Bialystok-SZNAJDER #general

Alan Shnider <shnider@...>
 

Dear All,
Shavuah Tov. I am looking for help. My daughter is currently studying at
Machon Gold in Jerusalem as part of a Bnei Akiva year-long program. On July 17
they travel to Poland for a week as part of her program.One place they are
visiting is Bialystok. My late father and his family came >from there as did
my mothers parents Samuel Pajes (Later spelt Payes) and my mothers mother's
family known as Beder. Some of the Pajes family and many of the Beder Family
went to Wellington New Zealand as did my late father Max Shnnider who went
to the Deckston Orphanage there in about 1937.

Below is some information I have about my father;

For some time now I have been trying to search for details, relating to my
late father and his family who came >from Bialystok. I have had little
success and may be I am searching incorrectly. My father was born we believe
on or about 1st June 1924 in Bialystok. His name was Max or he was also
known as Mottel. He was the second child of Alexander and Chava Sznajder and
he had an older sibling know as Guta . Chava I believe died in or about
October 1934 between Yom kippur and Succoth.We believe that Chava is buried
in the cemetery in Bialstok. The date she died was the 13th Tishrai. Her
name was Chava bus Shlomi Zalman. We believe her maidname was Fried My
father was about nine or ten. On his Polish Passport he was known as
"Mordchaj Beniamin Sznajder"

His father sent my father >from Bialystok on the day of Purim in 1937, which
I believe to be the 8th February 1937 to an orphanage in New Zealand run by
Max and Annie Deckston who were a distant relative. His stay in the
orphanage was short, as he didn't like the place misbehaved and was sent
back by the Deckston's to Poland only to be taken off the boat in London by
the then Jewish shelter
and sent back to New Zealand where he stayed with relatives.

It appears that on his Polish passport his surname was spelt SZNAJDER but
was changed we believe at the time of entry to New Zealand to Shnider.

My father spoke like many others very little of his childhood and it was
only recently that my mother and brothers met a man now living in Los
Angeles (Bernie Giel) who actually travelled on that day of Purim by train
from Bialystok to the port and then by boat to New Zealand and finally to
the Deckston orphanage. This man although >from Bialystok didn't know my
father in Bialystok and only met on the train as they left.

I am interested to try and piece together some information about my father
and his family. As far as my late father knew who passed away on 31st
January 1981 his father and sister perished. There is some suggestion that
his father may have remarried.

Any assistance you can give me, or any advice that you can give me on how to
continue my searching I would be very grateful. A number of my friends have
successfully searched and found information although some of them still have
parents who can at least provide some background information.

With my daughter Natalie leaving for Poland in 3 weeks, if any one has any
information that may assist whether it is remembering a street name or some
other information about my family I would be very grateful. I look forward
to hearing >from you at your convenience.

Location and correct spelling of Strashitz #romania

Hello,
My grandmother's sister, Chike Ida HAMMER , on her marriage certificate to Chiem
LEVINE in 1917, listed her place of birth as Strashitz, Bukovina. My grandmother
on the 1930 US census lists her origin as Austria. It has also been listed as
Romania. WOWW has a listing for Straschitz/Strasice, but it is in the Czech
Republic and I know that my grandmother came >from somewhere in the Carpathian
Mountain area, possibly near Chernowitz. I've checked ShtetlFinder and there are
too many similar names. Can anyone identify the correct spelling and location of
Strashitz in Bukovina?
