"... If anyone can advise me how to locate a researcher working

questions, I would be very appreciative.

About four years ago I was in touch with Dr Lukasz Bielecki of Poznan.
At that time he accepted requests for family research.

Write to me privately for full details. With Shana Tova greetings,

There are two beautiful books >from Maciej Lagiewski, the director of the
Breslau museum: "Das Pantheon der Breslauer Juden" (ISBN 3-87584-884-5) and
"Breslauer Juden 1850-1944" (ISBN 83-905227-1-3). The first one has not only
many pictures of the Friedhof Lohestrasse but also short curricula vitae of
the most prominent Jews buried there. The second contains hundreds of
historical pictures relating to the Jewish history of the town. It shows
that the houses in the Jewish quarter, built at the beginning of the 19th
century, did not seem to look very different a hundred years later.

Two other recent publications are very interesting:

- "Microcosm - Portrait of a Central European City" by Norman Davis and
Roger Moorhouse (ISBN 0-224-06243-3, 585 p.) is a portrait of Central
Europe, presented in the form of a case study of Breslau, "one of ist most
colourful cities.

- "Juden und andere Breslauer - die Beziehungen zwisachen, Protestanten und
Katholoken in einer deutschen Grossstadt von 1860 bis 1925" (Jews and other
Breslau people - the relations between Jews, Protestanrs and Catholics in an
German city >from 1860 to 1925) by Till van Rahden (ISBN 3-525-35732-X, 382
p.). It is an extremly detailed study which will be very interesting for all
GerSIG memebers (who understand German). It is a study on the development of
Breslau's social structur. One of the interesting things I learned, was the
fact that, due to the wealthy Jewish middle class, Breslau was one of the
most liberal places in Prussia - until 1918 when the Weimar republic
abolished the three class election system and introduced the one man (or
-also for the first time: one woman) - one vote.

- Finally, there is a reprint of Breslau's town map of 1915 "Reprint
historycznego planu miasta", Wroclaw 2003. The publisher is HBA, 51-124
Wroclaw, ul. Kamienskiego 112/3 (tel. 071-3527321). THe ISBN (83-915118-5-5)
seems to be one number for a series of old town maps, including Wroclaw
1927, 1930, 1936, 1040, 1041.

Rakoff, David & Anna Mendelson-Rakoff, Isidore Seek All information On Them #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello To All

I am so excited to report that I have finally recieved two long awaited
vital records on the RAKOFF side of my family. I finally have the
original marriage record of my maternal great-grandparents. The other
is the death record of my maternal great-great-uncle(brother to my
great-grandfather). According to the marriage record my
great-grandparents David Rakoff & Anna Mendelson were married in
Brooklyn, New York 12/18/1921. They both lived on myrtle avenue at the
time of their marriage David at 932 and Anna at 860.

Their parents names are listed as Moses/Morris & Bertha/Bernice Levine
for David, for Anna its Max/Morris & Rebecca Katz. I would love to find
out more about their parents. I do not know if their parents ever made
it to america. According to petition papers I already have, my
great-grandfather entered the united states >from canada in 1907 but did
not come to new york until 1917. My great-grandmother came to america
in 1911 and was under her original name Elke/Elka. He was >from Minsk
and she was >from Mogilov.

By getting the marriage record I was also trying to either prove or
debunk the story that my great-grandmother had other kids before my
grandmother was born in 1922 in Brooklyn. According to the marriage
record they were both single. But that's not really proof enough. My
great-grandfather was 35 and Anna was 31 even though she put that she
was 25. Apparently my great-grandmother never wanted to grow old for on
every record she fudged her age.

So either one of them could have been married before, and it is quite
possible that she did have kids that died very young,but I would assume
if that was the case it would have listed them both as being widowed.
Also I have my grandmothers birth certificate, and it does not mention
any other previous births. So I do not know if I should believe the
story thats been passed down >from my grandmother to my mother and now
me.

The death record is of David's brother Isidore Rakoff who died on
6/13/1938 in Manhattan at Mt. Sinai Hospital. He was only 50 at the
time. He lived in Brooklyn and operated a women's clothing shop.
According to the record he is widowed >from wife Bernice Wolfson. The
story that goes with him, is that he left his kids back in russia when
coming to the states. The wife I believe died in russia. He had Four
kids, Sonia, Samuel, Ben,Helen. He came to the states about 1916-17,
and apparently had married again.

Isidore did not send for his kids right away. I believe my
great-grandfather had to convince him to send for them at least thats
the story I was told. His kids did not come to the states until
1925-26. Some of the kids wound up living with my great-grandparents
because by that time the new wife did not want to be bothered by them.
Also Isidore is supposed to have had other kids with the new wife, but
I have found no mention of this. The son Ben is listed as next of kin
and informant on the death record, but no surving wife mentioned.

So, If anyone has information on these two families I would appreciate
hearing >from you. All help and advice is welcome. I have yet to find
either of my great-grandparents or the brother on a 1920 census for new
york.

Hello To All

I am so excited to report that I have finally recieved two long awaited
vital records on the RAKOFF side of my family. I finally have the
original marriage record of my maternal great-grandparents. The other
is the death record of my maternal great-great-uncle(brother to my
great-grandfather). According to the marriage record my
great-grandparents David Rakoff & Anna Mendelson were married in
Brooklyn, New York 12/18/1921. They both lived on myrtle avenue at the
time of their marriage David at 932 and Anna at 860.

Their parents names are listed as Moses/Morris & Bertha/Bernice Levine
for David, for Anna its Max/Morris & Rebecca Katz. I would love to find
out more about their parents. I do not know if their parents ever made
it to america. According to petition papers I already have, my
great-grandfather entered the united states >from canada in 1907 but did
not come to new york until 1917. My great-grandmother came to america
in 1911 and was under her original name Elke/Elka. He was >from Minsk
and she was >from Mogilov.

Desperately seek:Renata BRAUNSTEIN/ Itzchak ROTHSTEIN: Strij;(former Poland) #general

Yaël Parish <yaelparish@...>
 

Hi!
My name is Yael Parish.
I am a filmmaker and I live in Zurich, Switzerland.
I am working on a project about my mother:

Ida (Dusa) FRIED, born 1932 in Strij, Poland, today Ukraine.
Her name today is Judith PARISH. She was in a bunker in Strij,
a small town not far >from Lemberg (Lvov). Her girl-friend was
Renata BRAUNSTEIN, I suppose about the same age and she was with her
in the bunker. Her father was a forest ranger!
My mother thinks, that Renata Braunstein survived and leaves in the U.S.

And there was also a boy. His name was Itzchak ROTHSTEIN.
Unfortunately I don't know anything else about him.

Can anyone help me in finding them or their relatives?

Please!!!!!

Or can someone give me an advice where else to look for them?

Thank you so much.
