In November 29004, Liora (Lalita) Claff of Australia posted the following
paragraph.

"Just wondering if there's any connection. My great aunt (my father's
aunt) was Fagey PICKLES >from Manchester. When I read Steve Pickholtz's
email I realised that the name Pickles could be an anglicised version of
Pickholtz. Does anyone have any ideas on this?"

Steve and I have spent quite a bit of time and effort checking out the
possibility that this family had changed their name >from Pikholz,
especially since the given names fit a very specific set of missing
brothers. But we now know that this is not who we had hoped it was.

I wanted to share the results of our efforts with Liora and to offer her
a copy of her aunt Fagey's marriage record >from the London Bet Din, but
her email bounces. If someone has contact with Liora (Lalita) Claff, I
would be pleased to hear.

Henry Maurice (father of Edward) NEWMAN #general

Jonathan Newman
 

My paternal great-grandfather’s brother, Harris (later changed to Henry
Maurice) NEWMAN was born in Dudley, near Birmingham, on 13 October 1848.
He was a cigar merchant, a business in which he seems to have been very
successful, and died in London on 12 November 1900, aged 52.

Henry’s wife’s name was Pauline, and they had at least one child - a son
called Edward, born about 1882, who attended Harrow School, where he was
awarded several prizes. It seems likely, therefore, that he would have
distinguished himself in his subsequent career.

I would be extremely interested to hear >from members of the group who may
know anything about this family.

Many thanks for your help and please respond privately,

Jonathan Newman,

Can you identify: Photo on ViewMate #general

Victor boyd
 

This photo was given to me by my late father. It belonged to his
mother and it was taken somewhere in Lithuania -- possibly near the
Shetl of Rakikshok

My late grandmother Annie Epstein (maiden name something like Saturte?) eft
her shetl which I think was Rakikshok, travelled to England where she stayed
until she left to join her husband Max Epstein who worked as a Baker in
Liverpool before he left for Cape Town. She later followed him to
Cape Town, I think in the early 1900's.
I know that she had two brothers who on lived in Liverpool and I am told
that their surname was MASS -- possibly name changed at Immigration to
Mass?
They were Pincus and Shloime Mass!! A son, Cecil Mass, a cousin, once
travelled to South Africa I believe

My Grandfather Max Epstein's, was born in Grodno -- Family legend is
that his actual surname was Fink or Finkelstein but he changed it to
Epstein (perhaps when he got married?)

I am trying to identify the attached picture.- I most probably think it is
relatives of Annie Epstein or even of Max Epstein (Finkelstein's family)

If anyone identifies this photo, I would be most grateful

Part II: foreign book orders #galicia

Suzan & Ron Wynne <srwynne@...>
 

The accounting department for Wheatmark advices the following for those in
the United Kingdom: Bertrams will be handling the book so you should buy the
book through their distribution network in the U.K. (called "resellers") to
save on shipping costs.

For those in Israel: I am working with Wheatmark to come up with a plan. The
shipping cost plus the exchange rate makes the book VERY expensive. One
possibility is to have the Jewish genealogy societies put in a group order.
Please hold off on ordering for the time being unless you don't mind the
cost.

If those of you in Australia can work with your Jewish genealogy societies
to generate a group order, the shipping price will work out better.

For those in other countries outside of the U.S.: contact Hayley Love at
accounts@wheatmark.com or call 510 798-3306 extension 100. Shipping is
different for each country so the queries are handled individually.

Dear JewishGenners,

Galicia.
The families in the book >from towns in and near Galicia (now Poland) are:

DYNER, FREYLICH, GOLDBLUM, JAKUBOWICZ, MOSKOWICZ, TOBJASZ, MELLER,
SZLAMOWICZ (Olkusz), and KRIEGER (Oswiecim, Malec, Osiek, Kety) but even
if these are not the surnames you are researching, the
extensive Table of Contents provides an in depth listing of material that
will surely whet the appetite of any genealogist searching family in Galicia.

"Some Jewish Families...." is a large sized hard cover book containing a
treasure trove of information and may possibly provide a connection to your

Help with finding the BODNICK family (originally from Philadelphia) #belarus

Darren Dalcher <D.Dalcher@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Can anyone suggest a way of contacting the children of Gertrude BODNICK
from Philadelphia?
Gertrude was born Gertrude BANKOWSKI in Pinsk (around 1914) -- I believe
she passed away in Philadelphia in 1998. My grandfather, Raphael
Bankowski and Gertrude were the only known survivors >from the family. We
had an emotional meeting with Gertrude in Philadelphia in 1975 but did
not meet her children. She had a son named Sheldon and a daughter who
got married. I believe that Sheldon was an engineer and have been told
that he possibly may have moved to New Jersey.

I am trying to piece together details about members of the family who
perished in Pinsk, but would need the help of Gertrude's children.
However I have no idea how to find either one of the children.

If you know the family, or have any suggestions about how to find
Sheldon or his sister, please respond privately.

Thank you in advance.
