Book by Czestochowa Survivor from Kalisz, Poland #general

Marjorie Rosenfeld <marjorierosenfeld@...>
 

I am writing this as a one-time message to bring to the attention of Kalisz
and Czestochowa researchers a gripping and beautifully written Holocaust
memoir by the former Jadwiga (Jadzia) Lipszyc, of Kalisz, Poland, who is now
Jean Klein Frank of La Jolla, CA. The book, which is chapbook size and
contains 76 pages, describes Jean's survival as a slave laborer in the
Czestochowa Ghetto. It begins in Kalisz, so there are also some lovely
descriptions of that town and life there.

The book, titled Not Now, Not Ever, by Jean Klein, is available for sale for
$15, including shipping and handling. Jean runs a poetry group for the La
Jolla Library, so the Library people have kindly taken charge of the sale
and distribution of the book. Write to:

Florence Riford La Jolla Public Library
7555 Draper Avenue
La Jolla, CA 92037

The phone number for the library is (858) 552-1657.

Re: Inherited family names Re: Ludwig PFANTZLER, Born 1714 #germany

Pat Weinthal raises some questions in regard to the name adoptions in
Germany of the early 19th century. I guess, we have still much to learn.
Presumably, no standard pattern of name adoption existed. [snip]

MODERATOR NOTE: There was "no standard pattern of name adoption" in "Germany"
in the early 19th century because the various kingdoms, dutchies, city states
and other political entities were not unified until the last quarter of that
century. I have asked for citations of authoritative sources on name adoption
by Jews in various places. Back issues of "Stammbaum" contain some
articles. Our archives contain some information also.

Re: MICHAELIS Hallenstein > Australia #germany

Hazel Dakers
 

Quoted with the permission of Rabbi Philip Heibrunn, below.

"Moritz MICHAELIS was born in Lugde near Pyrmont in 1820, the youngest in his
family. He had an elder brother Michael.
In 1925 his sister married Rubin Hallenstein.
The MICHAELIS-Hallenstein dynasty were a founding family of our Synagogue.
There are Hallensteins still connected with my congregation

Moritz's brother Michael went to Manchester.
There was another brother, Isaac. After the death of their father, Moritz went
to Manchester to his brother Michael.

Moritz came to Australia ostensibly because the climate in Manchester didn't
agree with him. His brother's firm sent him to Melbourne to open (run?) a
branch of his business there.
Moritz met Rahel Gotthelf, daughter of his sister Behla's husband (a
widower) who lived in Burgdorf, Germany. Later they married in Manchester on
14th April, 1853.

Moritz arrived in Melbourne aboard the ship Falcon in 1853.

Although I'm not aware of all his children, a son, Frederick David MICHAELIS
succeeded his father on the St Kilda Synagogue board.
Another son was Edward MICHAELIS.
There was also a Sir Archie MICHAELIS (unsure which generation) who became
speaker of the state of Victoria Parliament.

Moritz is the founding President of the St Kilda Synagogue of which I have
been the Rabbi for the past 18 years.

There are still members of the family here in Melbourne although most not of
the same surname any longer.

There was also a MICHAELIS family in South Africa. I believe they are related to
the Melbourne MICHAELISes. Some have recently migrated to Australia.

There is another MICHAELIS family I know of. A Gerd? Gert? Gerhard MICHAELIS
worked with my father in the 1930s in my father's uncle's family business in
the small Western Transvaal town of Sannieshof where I grew up.

I hope this helps. Kind regards, Rabbi Philip Heilbrunn heilbrunn@optusnet.com.au

PS You are welcome to share theis email with other Gersiggers as I don't
seem to be able to do emails in plain text" [reply to heilbrunn@optusnet.com.au]

Re: MICHAELIS #germany

M&M Schejtman <m&mschejtman@...>
 

Hello all,
Since the MICHAELIS name is very common in both Jewish and non-Jewish
families in Germany, I am having a hard time tracking down my own family.

I am looking for the MICHAELIS family >from Halle an der Saale.
My grandfather Eugen MICHAELIS was already born in Hamburg in 1906, but
his father Karl (Samuel) was born in Halle. Karl's father was Michael
MICHAELIS (b abt. 1850). It was always a joke in our family that the
MICHAELIS family were oest Juden, so we think that maybe they came >from
Prussia/Poland to Germany, but we have no proof. Thanks

Baden But also in Hamburg >from the early 20th century


Family from Darsuniskis #general

Paul Silverstone
 

I am searching for a family >from Darsuniskis in Lithuania (also
Darshinoshuk) but the surname is a problem.

This couple's first names are Bezalel and Hinia Gitel.
The surname their children who came to America took was RIPSTEIN, but I
was told this was not the original name.
Therefore if anyone can identify a couple with these two first names
from this town who lived in the period about 1820 to 1890 it is worth my
looking at.
It is possible if not probable than Hinia Gitel came to America.

I am in possession of publication by Hans Liedke "Zur Geschichte der Juden

If anyone in this group has an interest in this information, I can make it
available privately.

Hi to all of you

My name is Arieh Mayer and I'm looking for information about my grandfather

My mother, who was born in Vienna, Austria, was Chaim's Glaser's daughter
from his first marriage and Dvora Glaser was her half sister.
If any one of the readers have any information about the people I mentioned >from
before, during or after the war or know any body who has, please be so kind and

library of Rabbi Kolesnik of Ivano-Frankivsk #galicia

Ruth Wielgosz <ruth_wielgosz@...>
 

Is there a catalog (or pending project to create a catalog) of the
historical documents that Rabbi Kolesnik has ("more than 1000 unique
books")? I think this would be a very useful list to have.

A small beginning:

When my brother visited in 2004 Rabbi Kolesnik showed him
* a synagogue record of burials
* a 1929 business directory, "Informator Miasto Stanislawowa, Rok 1"

from www.rtrfoundation.org/webart/archdatap46-49.pdf
* passport applications

From
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~yizkor~lookup_pb~912
* Bolshovtsy yizkor book "List of the soviet citizens shot by
German-fascist occupants and their confederates of Bolshowetsky Rayon
(district), Stanislau Oblast (county)"

from http://www.spectelresearch.com/PSchattner/ukraineappendix.html
* lists of Jews registered in some of the ghettos in local villages
during WWII. These lists indicated the name, date-of-birth,
occupation and location of the individual. The middle name indicates
the name of the individual's father in the usual Slavic manner.
Heads-of-households are listed first, with the other family members
listed after. Unfortunately, the list are hard to read and are in
Ukrainian.
