I agree with you wholeheartedly, David. Many times I have tried to help
someone but am stymied by not knowing the country they are referring to.
Just mentioning the town name doesn't mean that everyone who wants to help
will know the what, where and who of the message.

Warm Regards,

MARGULES / GUTERMAN / DANCYGIER families... #poland

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Dear Friends,

This is an appeal for help >from all MARGULES/GUTERMAN/DANCYGIER families –
wherever they may be.

Chava (Ewa) MARGULES (maiden name) has recently discovered her identity.
With the help of Jewish Records Indexing – Poland, Chava learned that she
was born in Sosnowiec, Poland in 1942 - and was given by her mother to be
hidden, into a non-Jewish Polish family.

After WW2 Chava spent time in an orphanage in Fublaines - France - a picture
of the bus which took Chava and some of her travelling companions to the
orphanage, has been posted on Viewmate – no VM 7863 - please view at
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html

Eventually Chava was adopted by a wonderful American family, she was raised
in the United States, married, and with her own family unit came to live in
Israel some 30 years ago.

Chava now knows that her parents were:-

Abram MARGULES born 1904 in Sosnowiec, (son of Mordka Josek MARGULES born
1871 in Dzialoszyce - and Ester Rywka DANCYGIER born 1873 in Szczekociny.) -
and

Leja Sara GUTERMAN born 1915 in Dabrowa Gornica, (daughter of Jankiel Josek
GUTERMAN born 1853 Zarnowiec, Olkusz and Sura DANCYGIER born 1877 in
Szczekociny.)

Chava knows that her parents were married in 1932 – and strongly believes
she must have had siblings. The whereabouts of the whole family is unknown.

Does anyone recognise the above names? Are you a brother, sister, cousin of
Chava?

Chava’s Grandmothers, Ester Rywka and Sura DANCYGIER were sisters. It
appears that Sura was married twice, her first husband bearing the surname
of KAISER. Chava would like to know if there any children >from this union?

Abram MARGULES had a brother Pinkus born 1898, who in 1922 married Sura Laja
PALIWODA, daughter of Jochym (Khaim) and Chana (nee DAFNER) >from
Strzemieszyce. Known is that they had 3 children but there may have been
more. His son Leiser Ansel was born in 1922 but died in 1935; his other
siblings were David & Raizel. It is not known what happened to them.

Leja (Leah) GUTERMAN had 2 elder sibling twins - Abram and Breindla. Abram
born 1913 died 1917, but what happened to Breindla? Were there other
siblings? Are there descendants?

It is also known that after the war years a Sima WOLBERG/BINDER was
searching for her cousin Chava/Eva MARGULES. Did you know Sima
WOLBERG/BINDER?

Can you help in Chava's search for her family?

Please contact me with any information you may have, no matter how small.

Thank you.

Stewart,

You can search for HABERGRUTZ and ALTERLEIB businesses in Warsaw and
elsewhere at www.kalter.org/search. I recommend trying both Daitch-Mokotoff
and OCR-Adjusted search methods. You can also search by known addresses
(using the Regular or Sensitive search methods) to find other people who
lived at those addresses.

I am looking for information sources to research my

The particular family names are Habergrutz and
Alterleib (or Alterlieb). On the Habergrutz side of
the family, I have had some success in obtaining some
information (birthdates, Warsaw addresses, etc.)
through U.S. immigration databases; since one member
of the family owned a business, I would welcome any
thoughts on how to find out more information through
relevant Polish business-information sources.

On the Alterleib side of the family, I have not been
able to find any information at all that might help me
track where they lived in Warsaw.

In both cases, I would like to be able, if possible,
to determine whether they had lived elsewhere in
Poland, among other questions.

Any shared information or guidance would be
appreciated.

Thank you.

With this book, I moved >from my decades of research into rabbinical,

of the New World, which has given me a whole new perspective into Jewish

The book is about the prominent NAAR, BAIZ, PEIXOTTO, PRETTO and SEIXAS,
family saga and their continuous history >from pre-Inquisition Spain and
Portugal, to Holland, the Caribbean and the United States, where descendants
played a major role in New Jersey and New York history.
These personalities include -
Mayor of Elizabeth, New Jersey (where I live)
Treasurer of the State of New Jersey
Two consuls—one to St. Thomas, the other for South American countries
The origins of maternity leave in the U.S.
Involvement in solving the Lindbergh kidnapping case
The visionary of the Panama Canal
A founder of New Jersey’s last county (Union County) in 1857
The New Jersey State printer· Private secretary to a New Jersey governor
Essex County judge and leading New Jersey Democrat

The book is -

Hi Genners,

This may sound silly or stupid - or both, but can people posting messages
please realise that this is an international group, with members all over
the world. Too often I see messages such as "My grandparents came here" or
"In this country", and I have no idea where they are writing from.

Can we all, therefore, use such phrases as "Here in......." or "Came to
......"and give the name of the country or, if in the US, give the name of
the State. It makes life so much easier to offer help because, even in these
days of electronic communication, rules and regulations regarding
genealogical research differ so much, as do methods of access and storage.

Meant kindly.

for New York City.) They immigrated in either 1937 or
1938. (After my mother turned 21 and before WWII
started.)

The SOLEIF database does not have any records for these
people.

P.S. Her other brother, Myksa, chose to go to Palestine.
I believe he married and had a child, Ryfka, while there.
He joined the rest family some time later.

Moderator: The St. Albans Lists document entries across the border >from Canada into the U.S. between 1895 and 1954. St. Albans was one of about 18 entry points in Vermont. Although these Canadian entry lists are collectively known as St. Albans records, they also contain records of immigrants crossing over in Washington, Montana, Michigan, New York, North Dakota, Minnesota, and other points along the U.S.-Canadian border.
