Searching for descendents mentioned in the will of my great great aunt #general

Martha LEV-ZION <martha@...>
 

My great grandmother's sister, Caroline Kline Galland, ne ROSENBERG,
died in in 1907, in Seattle, Washington, and left a fascinating will
behind her. Because she left the bulk of her very sizable estate to
establish an old age home, she made sure that she left every living
relative something so that they could not contest the will.

The following people, all new names to me, are mentioned in her will
and I am hoping to make contact with their offspring:

Rebecka KLEINER of New Haven, Connecticut;
Clara GUMPERT of New Haven, Connecticut;
Louis ROSENBERG of New Haven, Connecticut;
Lillie GOODRICH of New Haven, Connecticut;
Caroline ROSS of Vienna, Austria;
Dorthea ROSENBERG of Beuroth[sic] Bavaria [probably Bayreuth];
Lena ROSENBERG, same place in Bavaria;
Bertha MOHR, same place in Bavaria;
Lena STERNBERG of Albany Oregon;
Jennie ROSENBERG of Seattle, Washington;
Ida AXMN of Seattle, Washington;
Sam ROSENBERG of Seattle, Washington;
Charles ROSENBERG of Seattle, Washington;
Ed ROSENBERG of Seattle, Washington;
Isaac GOODMAN of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania;
Fannie WILLIAMS of New Haven, Connecticut;
and, finally, Julia WOLFF of New Haven, Connecticut.

If anyone knows anything about any of these people or their
descendants, please get in touch with me!

Lewkowitz #general

Hallo
I want to thank all of you that took the time to help
and write to me about my cousins Harry and Gail
Lewkowitz. Yes they are the right ones. I sent Harry
Lewkowitz an email but so far I have not heard from
him. He may, for whatever reason, not want to get in
touch with me. I only saw him once as a little boy.
Also does anybody know of a docter named Ishida, her
maiden name was Rappaport, She was born in England,
married a japanese docter who was a Major in the US
Army. They were living in Wuerzburg, Germany in 1975,
with them living was Mrs Rappaport, the grandmother,
they had two children I believe. Dr Ishida was picked
to go t to a research school or something similiar to
it, for brain research.
Thank you very much for all the help

Jacob SAVIN, Connecticut; reporting of suicides in early 1900's #general

LJTRS@...
 

Hello,

I am researching my husband's great grandfather, Jacob SAVIN, whom the
family barely knew. He married around 1897, stuck around enough to have
four children >from 1899-1909. We have been told that he disappeared by 1912.
He is listed on the 1910 Montville, Connecticut census and then on the 1920
census his wife,Sarah Savin, is listed as a widow. So somewhere between
1910 and 1920 he is gone. We know that he had New York connections and
since there are no records of his death in Connecticut, I began searching
New York. I have hit a wall. We suspect that he might have either left
his wife for another woman and started a new family (although we have
no evidence of that) or he committed suicide. Something scandalous occured.
Some old neighbors remembered that but they didn't know what. So we have
a mystery on our hands and can not seem to figure it out. Does anyone
have any idea how a Jewish suicide might have been handled around 1912-1920?
Would there be no records?

Thanks.

LIEBLICH Family with Polish, Pittsburgh, Providence Connections #general

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

I am trying to locate anyone who is a descendant of or researching the
family of Pincus [Peter] LIEBLICH. I have strong reason to believe that he
was the brother of my gg-grandmother Rachel LIEBLICH.

Rachel Lieblich (daughter of Yosef and Ester) born about 1849 (in
Austria-Hungary/Poland) married Henry [Haim Naftali] Rosenblatt +/-1866.
Their children were: Feitel; Szymon; Hesh/Hirsh; Rivka; Solomon; Leah;
Charles; Bernard; David and Benjamin. They immigrated about 1871 and
settled initially in Pittsburgh, before relocating to Providence. Rachel
died in 1889 in Providence.

Pincus Lieblich (born about 1857) was married to Rose (born about 1862) and
their children were: Samuel (born about 1881); Jacob (born about 1878) and
Herman (born about 1886).

I found a ship's manifest showing them arriving in the US on 24 Jul 1886. I
doubt that was their first trip as Pincus was naturalized in Allegheny
County in 1889 and according to records; both Jacob and Herman were born in
Providence, RI.

There is the following listing in the 1890 Pittsburgh directory:

Name: Peter Lieblich
Location 1: 349 Fifth Avenue
Occupation: pictures
Year: 1890
City: Pittsburgh
State: PA

He is also listed in the 1910 Pittsburgh census.

I've found Jacob Lieblich born in 1881 in Providence; died in 1964 in Los
Angeles. In 1920 and 1930 he was married to Belle and living in Cleveland.

I've found Herman Lieblich born in 1886 in Providence; son of Peter and
Rachel Lieblich.

The reason I'm so sure that there is a connection between Pincus and my
gg-grandmother is the Pittsburgh Providence connection as well as the fact
that both Pincus and Henry ROSENBLATT (my gg-grandfather) were picture
framers.

There was also Sarah Lieblich (born about 1876 in Austria) immigrated
between 1888-1892. She settled in Pittsburgh and married Israel Isaac
Rosenblatt (brother of Henry). She died childless in 1932. According to a
letter written by my ggg-grandfather, she had a wealthy brother who had many
children. Could it have been Pincus? I have yet to locate other children
besides the three mentioned above.

If anyone knows anything about the LIEBLICH family, I would greatly
appreciate hearing >from you. Please respond privately.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish one and all a very Happy
Pesach.

Help with Idea's? #southafrica

Dear JewishGenners
Having drawn a blank in Latvia (no records exist for 1879), spoken to every
living relative, have trawled every page on the SAfrica SIG and many of the
linked resources and still have no solid leads to work on, so I am turning
to this group for some Idea's

I am looking for information about our South African BERNSTEIN family. They
originated in Dvinsk/DAUGAVPILS, Latvia.

Perets and Lily Bernstein >from Latvia had at least one son who went to
England around 1900. Hyman BERNSTEIN (1879-1943) he married Yetta and had 3
children Percy, Rachel Leah and Bernard.

Another son born went to South Africa (via England), we know that this
brother was married (not sure if in UK or SA) we also know that the family
where still in South Africa in the early 50's this is the family we are
trying to locate.

Did the Jewish immigrants in SA live in communities or have burial societies
from the old country similar to other worldwide communities, if so do
records exist?

Where do I go >from here? I am considering writing to every BERNSTEIN in the
South African phone book! unless anyone can give me other avenues to explore
first. .

Hans Ludwig JAFFE 1915-1984 #germany

David Blank <rmjb@...>
 

It now turns out that Hans JAFFE was born as Hans L. COHN on
14-05-1915 in Frankfurt.

Later in life he took his mother's name, JAFFE

Hans JAFFE's great-grandfather was Heinrich GRAETZ (1817-1891). He
died on 24 juli 1984, without children.

He is not the first to have adopted the JAFFE name and sent
researchers on goose chases!

Now I need to find out who his mother was. Any help would be appreciated.

I seeking info on Hans Ludwig JAFFE as I am trying to establish to
which branch of the JAFFE family he belongs.

Born May 14, 1915, in Frankfurt am Main, Germany; emigrated to
Netherlands, 1933; died in 1984, in Amsterdam, Netherlands; son of
Franz and Olga JAFFE; married Elly FREEM, August 16, 1947 .

I believe that he escaped Germany in 1933 to Holland. Later he fled
to Lucerne, Switzerland to join his parents.

After the war he returned to Amsterdam and was a director of the
Stedelijk Museum and later the Jewish Historical Museum. Thank you. Chag Sameah.
