Sunshine--the movie #hungary

A few years ago, the movie Sunshine--of genealogical value-- came out and
was talked about. In spite of all my efforts in the area I failed to see
it. Now it is on video. I ordered it >from <snip>

Enjoy!

... It's in German and can be found at
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html and it's file VM7046.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

It would look very much like the German word "Kreisler" (cereal trader) if
there wasn't that loop in between the "s" and the "l".

Then again, the loop might be a "z", "sz" doesn't alter the German
pronunciation, fits the Hungarian one and "Kreiszler" seems to be a quite
common surname in Hungary. The "Hungarian" spelling might have had an
identical meaning once, my own Hungarian isn't good enough to tell.

Best regards.

Translation needed #belarus

GailEliz@...
 

I have posted a photo of an unknown relative to the JewishGen View Mate
site.
It can be seen at VM7047
(http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7047). I think that
the writing on the front of the photo
is the name of the photo studio and hopefully a location is given. My
paternal grandmother and grandfather both came >from Berezena, near Minsk.
The photo was found by a cousin while sorting through my 97 year old aunt's
things and she is no longer capable of being questioned.
I would be most grateful to anyone who can translate it for me? Please
contact me privately at Gaileliz@aol.com.
Many thanks!

Rita MAISEL/MEISEL #general

David Priever
 

Dear fellow Jewishgenners,

I am looking for a Rita (nee MAISEL or MAISEL) who was born in Brooklyn, ca.
1928. Her father was either Nathan or Louis. I have no idea what her
married name may have been but am hoping this *may* seem familiar to those
MAISEL/MEISEL researchers out there.

Thank you very much in advance.

Sincerely,

David J. Priever

Searching SEGAL in Toronto Canada #general

Mark Budman <budman@...>
 

Hello,

With the release of the 1911 Canadian Census, I have been able to locate
additional names in my SEGAL family research.

I am searching for anyone who has connection to Solomon SEGAL (B 1885), who
lived in Toronto (Elizabeth street at some point) around 1911 (and maybe as
far as 1921) with his family.

Family members that I am aware of include:

Wife Annie (b 1889), daughter Mary (B Jan 1910),and son Alexander (B 1911)

I even have a picture of Solomin Segal to compare against.

Has anyone heard of any of these people?

Please contact me if you have any information.

Best Regards,

Mark

Re: OSSUR and OSHER #general

Regarding the assumption proposed by Irene Kudish that OSSUR and OSHER
might be another form of the surname of OSHRY >from Kupiskis, I would like to
state the following:

Rabbi Oshry's surname was not derived >from the names OSSUR or OSHER at all.
It came >from an entirely different source or root which was the first word
of the 141 Psalm. This source was given by Rabbi Oshry himself and other
relatives. Also, the names OSSUR or OSHER do not appear in the Kupiskis
records.

Found Chaya Ehrenstein's Daughter #general

Vivian Kahn
 

Thanks to much to everyone who responded to my message about the search
for Mrs. Chaya EHRENSTEIN of Kfar Vradim, Israel. Mrs. Ehrenstein,
whose mother may have been my father's first cousin, submitted a Page
of Testimony in 1990 for her mother, Hermina Moskovitz Handelsmann.
Sadly, Mrs. Ehrenstein died several years ago but my letter found its
way to her daughter who called me and send an e-mail.

We haven't yet determined whether Chaya's grandfather Emil MOSKOVITS
was, in fact, an older brother of my paternal grandmother Hermina
MOSKOVITS NEUMANN but this is definitely progress. If my suspicions
are correct, Chaya's daughter is my second cousin once removed. We are
both excited about the prospect of finding new family membes.

I was overwhelmed by the response to my request for help and hope to be
able to soon report that I've confirmed this new branch of my MOSKOVITS
tree.

I have a folder full of death certificates for a family of fourth
cousins in Jerusalem, which I obtained by going to the Haifa office of
the Population Registry and asking for them. Nobody asked me for proof
of relationship.

I also have their burial records, which I got by mail after
telephoning the H.evra Kadisha to ask for them. If you want records
defining when and where the deceased died, and in what plot of what
cemetery he is buried, that may be the way to get the information.
