I attended services and cheder as a child in the mid 1930's at Cong.
Zichron Ephraim. If you contact me privately, I can give you names of Rabbi
Drachman's descendants who might be able to answer your question. Perhaps,
someone among them may have already seen your inquiry on JewishGen.

I recently learned that a Torah (or possibly two) in the possession of my
great grandfather, Cantor Wolf BARON, was donated after his death in 1937 to
Congregation Zichron Ephraim in New York City. This was accomplished
through my great aunt Etta BARON SOMBERG, who was very involved in the
Sisterhood of the shul and was good friends with Haddassah DRACHMAN, wife of
the shul's rabbi, Bernard DRACHMAN.

The shul, today known as Park East, informs me they do not have documentation
dating back to 1937 in order to confirm which Torah is the one in question.

Do any of you know if Rabbi Drachman's papers were donated to a library
after his death, and if so, which one? Alternatively, are any of you
members of the DRACHMAN family or former congregants of Zichron Ephraim who
may have access to information or knowledge of the above scenario?

Many thanks,

Moshe (Morris) Bersin (resent third time - for lack of Plain Text and a subject) #latvia

Mike Stern <mike@...>
 

I have had an incredible time with the new Latvian database, and perhaps
this is an opportunity to express my thanks to whoever contributed,
whether in time or funds, to the translation of the various lists.

The lists confirmed many theories we had about family connections of the
BERSINs, and we immediately located two branches of the family we were
not aware of - one brother's family who stayed in Rezekne up to the
late 30's ( while the others lit out for South Africa), and then made
Aliyah, and another sister we suspect went to the States in 1906, and
of whom we are awaiting confirmation.

Based solely on computer work ( and collecting information >from the
family) we have managed to determine that my great-great- grandfather
was Idel BERSIN who was born in Rezekne in 1815, and died there in 1896.
This gives us 8 generations for the Bersin family. I understand that
the next step will be to approach the State Archives in Latvia.

The KOPMANs are slightly more elusive, but we will get round to them.

I had no idea what databases were available for South Africa, and many
participants in the SIG have kindly enlightened me. Yes, there are
records for Morris BERSIN, who owned property in Plumstead and died
there in 1934, and records of his widow, Sonia, who left with her grown
sons and daughter for Rhodesia in the late '30s.

I have enough material to work on for the coming year - again, my thanks
to all who have helped me along the way.

I accessed the Rambi database at Hebrew University
//jnul.huji.ac.il/rambi and typed in the proper keywords and came up with:

Gurock, Jeffrey S.
from exception to role model; Bernard Drachman and the evolution of Jewish
religious life, 1880-1920 American Jewish History 76,4 (1987) 456-484.

The reference section there would be valuable. Also try the American Jewish

Abraham DANIEL Family of Detroit #ukraine

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

I think I might have stumbled upon something that might just unlock my
SNOPARSKY family mystery.

I recently discovered a piece of paper with a note regarding a Pola
SZNAPARSKI who arrived at the Port of Quebec in Sept 1922. She was born in
*Pavalatsch* about 1905 and her destination was her brother Abe DANIEL who
lived at 2525 Hastings St. in Detroit.
In 1925 I found Borich SCHNAPORSKI who was born about 1906 in *Pavalich*
crossing the border >from Canada to visit someone in Detroit.

According to the WWI registration I have Abe DANIEL born 1891 in *Pavoltz,
Kiev* residing at 465 Hastings St. in Detroit.
It indicates that he was the sole supporter of his family in Russia.
The 1930 Census indicates that Abraham DANIEL immigrated in 1913; was
proprietor of a fish market; was 39 years old and married to Sophia. They
had a daughter Sylvia who was born in 1923. Abraham's mother Anna, a widow
age 63 also lived with them. It looks like she immigrated in 1927.
According to the SS records, Abraham died in 1980 in Detroit.

Does anyone know or know of the family of Abraham, Sophia and Sylvia DANIEL
of Detroit? Any information would be most appreciated!

As usual, thank you all for your time and for all of the wonderful support,
advice and suggestions.

Please respond privately.

Dear Irit,
You might have a very special book; it's certainly not the yizkor
book for Ekaterinoslav. I have a copy of that book, It was published
in the 1970's, and the whole index is only three pages (one column
per page), and that's even with the book beginning with the times of
Czar Alexander. Dozens of people, not hundreds, and certainly not thousands.

It sounds like we may have another resource to investigate, to find
the other volumes and parts of your series!
