Searching KANTOR family - Paberze and Vilna #lithuania

Michael Trapunsky <trapunsky@...>
 

Hi all,

I am trying to find descendants of my KANTOR relatives who originally came
from Paberze, Lithuania and then later on lived in Vilna (Vilnius) and the
surrounding areas in Lithuania.

My great great great great grandparents, Hertz (1776-1844) and Sarah
(1781-1866) KANTOR, lived in Paberze. They had 6 children that I know of:

1- Yakov KANTOR - He had Eliakum and Leib. Leib had Malkah, and Eliakum had
Isaac.

2- Yonah KANTOR - He had a daughter Chana who had Freida (last name unknown).

3- Aharon KANTOR - He had a daughter Pesil who had Hertz Berel and Hinde
(last name unknown).

4- Moshe KANTOR - I know nothing about him.

5- Hirsch KANTOR - He had Hertz, Meir, Tzippy and Fruma. Fruma had Hertzig,
Meir Henoch, Malkah and Sarah (last name unknown).

6- Eliyahu KANTOR (b. 1818) - Married Faiga OGUS (b. 1822) - This is my
family. They had the following children:

a- Mariashe KANTOR - Married Zalman SAPERSTEIN and had Nachum and
Moshe.

b- Shaina Tziviya KANTOR - Married Aharon SHTAIN and had Kayla,
Bella Gutta, Abba Yoseph, Mairiase and Meir Leib.

c- Margola KANTOR - Married Avraham YEDIDE and had Yitzchak,
Shaindel, Yakov Hertz and Clara. I believe that Clara may have moved to
the States or England. Her children were Saul, Irving David and Eli
(last name unknown).

d- Sarah KANTOR - Married Yehuda YESHIA and had Chana Kayla,
Shaina, Golda and Pesil.

e- Eliakum Shimon KANTOR - Married Rivka and had Leizer, Avraham,
Eide, Leah, Esther Sarah, Zalman, and Reuven.

f- Yitzchak KANTOR - I know nothing about him.

g- Shmuel KANTOR - I know nothing about him.

h- Miriam KANTOR - I know nothing about her.

i- Chana Hinde KANTOR (1845-1925) - Married David SHER. They were
my great great grandparents. They had Malka, Golda, Yakov Reuven, Mairiase,
Shmuel Hertz, and Eliakum Gavriel (1883-1938).

Except for the descendants of Chana Hinde KANTOR and Dovid SHER (my
immediate family) I do not know anything else about the families listed
here. I was led to believe that they may have all perished in the Holocaust
but do not know for sure.

I would love to hear back >from anyone who might possibly know of a
connection or anything at all about these families.

Thank you very much,

Russian revision lists for Bialystok, Bielsk and Sokolka #poland

MWGordon2@...
 

Joan Goldstein inquired yesterday about Russian revision lists for
Bialystok, Bielsk and Sokolka uyezds in the Belarus Archives.

Nine years ago, in response to a written letter to the Archives, I received
an extract typed in Russian (not a copy) of a family listing in the 1855
Census of Jewish residents for Bielsk Podlaski. This was a very useful
record, since it expanded my Chrabolowski (changed to Gordon) ancestry back
two more generations to about 1765. The Archives noted that this was the
only record in their collection for my family -- a statement that seemed
unlikely to be accurate.

According to the Scandinavia SIG website, the Jewish Community of Copenhagen
kept a burial register in Hebrew >from 1771-1871, while a register in Danish
was kept >from 1814. During the period of overlap, how do these registers
differ in the information they contain?

Thanks very much and best regards,

Hungarian cemetary in Montreal #general

Arnold Samlan
 

I recently learned that my great grandmother is buried in Hungarian Hebrew
Cemetery Association section of Back River cemetery in Montreal. Burial was in
1915 (which I learned of through the wonderful work of JGS of Montreal).

Does anyone know about the cemetery association? Since this is the earliest
link that I have so far on my paternal grandfather's side, I am trying to
determine whether any early records exist, and whether her being buried there
meant anything in terms of her roots.

re Sachsenhausen-in-Waldeck #general

Charutz <yairharu@...>
 

Hi Jewishgenners,

I wish to thank all those who replied to me, both on-list and off-list
regarding my search for information regarding Sachsenhausen-in-Waldeck in
Germany. The information and leads were very useful.

It appears, however, that my original information was not entirely accurate.
The town still exists, even, though all the pre-WW2 Jewish Community either
dispersed or were victims of the Holocaust.

I received an interesting e-mail >from Alexander Sharon, the editor of the
JGFF. He gave me some very interesting and useful information that is of
great interest and assistance to me. It appears that the town for which I
was searching was not listed in the JGFF Data-base. and my query was the
first regarding this particular town in the JGFF. Mr Sharon and others did,
however, trace queries in other genealogical lists about this town and
referred them to me. Thank you all very much.
