Jonava Internal Passport Records #general

Howard Margol
 

The complete translation of the Jonava, Lithuania internal passport files,
1919-1940, has been received and is in the Que to be added to the database on
Jewishgen. Financial donations to support this project would be very much
appreciated. To contribute to this project, please go to:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity

After the data is added to the database, you will be able to do a search for
surnames. However, it can be very advantageous to view the entire list of
internal passports, applied for by Jews, in Jonava during the 1919-1940 period.
If you make a donation of $25 USD or more, include a message with your
donation requesting that I be notified about your donation. I will then email you
the English translations of all of the Jonava internal passport files. You
will then be in position to contact the Kaunas Regional archive and request a
copy of the original documents contained in the file of each applicant. The
Kaunas Regional archive has agreed to supply copies at a very low cost.

Even though the internal passport applications were filed in Jonava, many of
the applicants lived, or were born, elsewhere. Consequently, the files are
of interest to other researchers and not only those researching their
ancestors >from Jonava.

Looking for Enid ADLER GOLDENBERG & David ADLER families, Philadelphia, PA. #general

Kathi Freudenheim <KFreud@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I am trying to contact the family members of my 2nd cousins, Enid ADLER
GOLDENBERG & David ADLER. Their parents were Fannie/Feige FREUDENHEIM (my
great aunt; 1897-approximately 1982) and Adolph ADLER.

My grandfather, Jacob Freudenheim (1889-1958) was Fannie's brother. Their
mother was Devora (Dora) Gertler. Their father was Juda Freudenheim. There
is another sister, Laura/Lola/Lea/Leicha Freudenheim BACH (1886 or 7 -1967).
They were born in Galicia. Fannie, Adolph, Dora & Laura are buried in the
Montefiore Cemetery in Jenkintown, PA.

The Freudenheim family emmigrated >from the
Sambor-Drohobycz-Borislaw-Wolanka-Stryj regions. Dora, Fannie, & Laura
lived in the Philadelphia-Norristown, PA. area. It has been noted by other
family members that Fannie's daughter, Enid, married a man named GOLDENBERG
& they had a furniture store called Goldenberg's. I had corresponded with
Fannie's son, David in the 1970's. At that time he was a principal of a
school & his daughter was being Bat Mitzvah. I cannot remember the names of
David's children. I remember that he lived on Swedesford Road, but I cannot
recall in what town (possibly in the Upper Darby area of PA).

Any information related to this family will be greatly appreciated.

Rabbi Yitzhak RISSAK #rabbinic

Gene Rosenblum
 

My grandmother, Freida RISSAK was married to Mayer
WIANER (WEINER-WINER). Her father was Rabbi Yitzhak
RISSAK. She apparently came >from Riga or Odessa. She
was born in 1866 and married my grandfather either
in Riga or Odessa. They came to USA in 1890 with two
daughters, Jennie and Minnie. I have now learned that
she had a sister, Clara (Chaje) BLATT, whose father
was Aaron BLATT. I don't know when Rabbi RISSAK died
or whether they were divorced.

I would appreciate any help regarding my research.

Re: R' Shmuel ENGEL of Radomysl #rabbinic

Sandor Bacskai <bacskaisanyi@...>
 

Dear Shlomo Katz,

The Radomysler Rav (the late rosh-besdin of Kassa/Kosice) was
from Radomysl Wielki. You are right, there is two Radomysl in
Poland, and both is located in the former Galicia: either in
Mielec area, and another at the San river in the Tarnobrzeg
area. The Radomysler Rav served as rabbi in Bilgoraj at first,
which town was located in Russia. Since he was a citizen of
Habsburg Empire originally, must have returned to Austria:
lived in Dukla, and >from the early 1880s in Radomysl. Because
of the WWI, he moved to Hungary (town of Vac/Waitzen), and at
last to Kassa/Kosice, Slovakia, where he passed away in 1935.

Regards,

Sandor Bacskai

Descendants of the "Smichat Chachamim"-Rabbi Naftali KATZ #rabbinic

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

We have a family tree (tradition) that we stem >from the
MaHaRa'L and the MaHaRSHa"L down through the author of the
"Smichat Chachamim" Rabbi Naftali KATZ.

Recorded (at least what I've found) descendants further down
are recorded to the father and son Rabbis of Kremenetz, Arieh
Leib son of Shmuel.

Below them the only comparable tree I've seen was that of the
PAPIRNE family in Jerusalem, I believe who were Karlin Chasidim.

According to one of my greatuncles the original family name, at
least as far back as my ggggrandfather was ROSENBAUM.

Several genners with ancestors ROSENBAUM have contacted me in
the past but I've not been able to see any necessary connection.
So my question is: Is there anyone on this list who is connected
to the PAPIRNE family and if so, do they know of a ROSENBAUM
family connection?

Yoni Ben-Ari wrote yesterday about the Descendants of the "Smichat
Chachamim"-Rabbi Naftali KATZ. That reminded me of a misadventure that
illustrates one of the common mistakes we genealogists make:

Many years ago I was mislead [I misled myself] into believing that I was a
descendant of Rav Katz. I discovered, with great excitement, that one of
my rabbinical ancestors, Rav Eliezer Lippmann HaLevi, ABD of Zuelz,
Schlesien, [1740-1810], was married to Gittel, the daughter of Rav Zvi
Hirsch Samosz, ABD Hamburg/Altona, who was a descendant of Rav Katz.

Wow!, I thought, so I'm also m'besar besaro [flesh and blood] of the
Smichat Chachamim, and also Rav Yehuda Loeb of Prague, the Maharal, and a
pantheon of other famous Rabbanim going back to the Gaonim of Pampedita in
Babel, etc. I then devoted a huge effort in researching him, his writings,
his other descendants, etc. At great expense and effort I managed to
purchase a copy of his Smichat Chachamim and his Tzva'a [Ethical Will].

While serenely cruising along, deepening my research, I came upon the
Memorbuch of the Jewish Community of Zuelz, Schlesien, at the archives of
the Jewish National and University Library in Jerusalem. Rav Eliezer and
his family were prominently memorialized on its pages. Even his wife was
mentioned: HaRabbanit Malka bat Baruch [!?!]. But all the literature
sources said his wife was Gittel bat HaRav Zvi Hirsch Samosz. Alas, both
were correct.= Some further research confirmed that Rav Eliezer was married
no less than three times, and his last marriage was to Gittel, when both
were advanced in age. All his children were >from his marriage to Malka bat
Baruch, daughter of a simple Jew, Baruch, who didn't even rate a title like
Reb, let alone Moreinu in the Memorbuch.

So here it was, in clear Hebrew words. Malka, not Gittel was my ancestor,
and that severed my patrimony of some thirty generations of Rabbanim!
from this we learn not to trust information at face value. Often there were
prior or later marriages, and it's usually very hard to assign the children
to the right spouse.

I still have all the research, and the two books, which I would be pleased
to sell to genuine descendants of the Smichat Chachamim. Please contact me
privately.
