Descendants of Reb Moshe of Kletzk #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

Looking for a detailed family tree-descendants-of Reb Moshe of Kletzk who
was the father of the Rabbi of Novarodok some two centuries ago.

I am interested in details regarding other children he may have had besides
the above Rav Dovid.

Happy New Year and Chag Sameach

Hans WOLFF #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

Regarding my message of 14 October (below), I was told last night by a
cousin that Hans WOLFF ended up in Argentina, where he died. The cousin had
no other information. So, first, the same request applies. Second, thanks
to the many people why responded with information about the many HW's in
Brazil.

With humble apologies,

Steve Orlen
Tucson, AZ

(This is for my wife's MARX family tree. (The family originated in
Buttenhausen, Germany.) In the mid-1930's, Hans WOLFF emigrated >from
Stuttgart, Germany to Brazil, and was since then lost to his family. He
would have been born circa 1915 to Selma nee MARX and Theodore WOLFF. His
brother was Fritz. No one alive knows what city he settled in. I imagine
his is a fairly common name. In fact, several years ago I found several men
with that name in a Brazilian phone directory. Does this name &
circumstance ring any bells with our Brazilian cousins?)

Best, Steve Orlen

Yes, there is a way of determining who paid for the inscription of a name on
the walls. When I was visiting Ellis Island about eight years ago, I used
the computer provided there to look up my father, Hyman I. Feldman. (There are
two Hyman Feldmans inscribed on the walls but only one was that of my father.)
To my dismay, I discovered that the name of our family's attorney had been
entered as the person who paid for putting my father's name on the wall. With
some difficulty and after some time had elapsed, I was later able to get our
attorney's name removed and my name and the names of my brother and sister, for
it was we three who paid the fee out of our inheritance after our mother's
death.

Lodz databases explanation and another source #poland

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

I have received several inquiries about the information I posted regarding
Lodz (and other) databases. Hope this clarifies:

1. The databases are searchable databases, not static lists. You cannot
browse the entire town or whole list. You must do a search on a surname.

2. On the Holocaust database, one surname search will list that name
wherever it appears in any of the 100 separate data files, so you don't have
to go through each file separately. You cannot search one datafile
independently. These relatively smaller databases do not have their own
individual search engines as does the Lodz Ghetto Residents database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland/LodzGhetto.html . You will need
to search these other databases by going to
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/

3. It is very important to READ THE INTRODUCTIONS and check out the
highlighted terms, which often refer you to lists of occupations or a
translation of terms and even the columns used in the databases. It is very
hard to understand the content of the database without reading the intro.
For information on each of the databases, scroll down and click on the links
on that same page. For example, Chelmno is one of the databases listed.
Click on that link to get to the explanation about the database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/0114_Lodz-transports.html

4. Anyone can do a basic search but must have a JewishGen ID number. To get
this sign up at http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/ (no cost). When the request
appears to log onto a database, you will need that number. A basic search
allows you to input only in the first search box. Only contributors can do
an advanced search which allows you to search additional boxes at the same
time so that, for example, you can search on a surname and given name
together.

Another searchable database, not housed on JewishGen, containing about
20,000 Lodz names was compiled by Daniel Kazez. Check out
http://www.benkazez.com/dan/crarg/search.php

Please remember to list the ancestors you are researching on the JewishGen
Family Finder http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/ If you are listed, others
researching the same names, or who have information about the names you are
researching, will be able to contact you.

Good luck with your research.

SPRITZ of Odessa #general

Peg and Al Rosenfield <alanpeg@...>
 

Please excuse this e-mail if I have written previously. I lost a number of
records in a computer crash.

We are looking for ancestors and descendants of my great aunt, Nachema
ROSENFIELD. She married Leo/Leizer SPRITZ in Odessa in 1888. Nechema was the
daughter of Aaron BECKER, who changed his name to ROSENFIELD at some point.
Leo and Nachema had two sons, Wolf (born 05/31/1981) and Shmuel (born
02/12/1904).

The rest is unsubstantiated family history. Relatives have said that there
was a son Victor (probably Wolf), who was recruited by the government during
World War II as a dentist in Moscow. He had at least one son. Victor sent
for his mother and sisters >from Odessa, but they returned to rcover some
property. The mother and sisters are believed to have been lost in the
Holocaust. We have no record of the sisters' births. My father said they
were named Catherine, Esther, and Miriam. He also said that one of them
married a Dr. SILVERMAN.

Please let me know if you have furhter information on this family. We will
be happy to supply information on the ROSENFIELD family if there is a
match.
