Searching: Zofia FINKELSTEIN KOWARSKI in Baltimore #general

Steve Perelman
 

I am searching for a cousin, Zofia Finkelstein KOWARSKI, a survivor of the
Holocaust >from Lutsk or Roshishche in the Ukraine. She is the only relative who
would know the names of family memebers lost in the Shoah and I want to
memorialize their names at Yad Vashem as well as connect with her if she is
willing.
She reunited with her brother and her father in July 1947 after miraculously
surviving the ghetto in Lutsk. She moved to Baltimore in 1948 with her father Jake
FINKELSTEIN who later passed away in 1956. She has a son who is a psychologist.
I don't know his name. Zofia married, had her son and divorced and remarried a
doctor who died in 1963. Zofia married her current husband who was a professor.

I estimate Zofia today would be approx. 72. Zofia's mother Chana and my
grandfather Ben were brother and sister.
If anyone can help me locate Zofia Kowarski, please contact me privately.

SABSCOITZ #general

Rabbi Ben-Zion Saydman <ravbenzi@...>
 

Shalom:

I just received a map of the Beth Hamedrash Hagodol section of Machpelah cemetery
in New York which shows all burials up to 1957. Bordering my MELTSNER family
graves, the map records the graves of Fayga SABSCOITZ (1/7/1917) and Louis
SABSCOITZ (5/26/1922). Family legend holds that the 5 known MELTSNER boys had a
sister, Fayga. Other than her first name, nothing else has been passed down.
Logic dictates that Fayga SABSCOITZ is quite possibly the sister, which is very
exciting! Unfortunately, my searches for this surname or similar variations came
up blank. Has anyone seen this surname before? If it is recorded incorrectly on
the map, what would be your best guess for the true surname? Is anyone planning a
visit to Machpelah who wouldn't mind checking the information on Fayga and Louis'
matzevahs? They are buried in the Beth Hamedrash Hagodol section, Row B, graves
11 and 12. If anyone with family connections to Beth Hamedrash Hagodol would like
me to check the Machpelah map for relatives, please contact me privately.

I am looking forward to seeing you all in Las Vegas.

Dear Genners,
For those people searching information about New Haven, Connecticut, I would like
to suggest that you try the web site for the The Jewish Historical Society of
Greater New Haven, Inc. Their web site http://pages.cthome.net/hirsch/ is very,
very outdated, however, there are phone numbers and an e-mail address for the
curator. The e-mail is whirsch@snet.net

I have not tried the New Haven Colony Historical Society. Their information is:

14 Whitney Avenue, New Haven, CT 06510

Burlington Vermont Records #general

Burlington Vermont Family

My mother-in-law was born in Burlington Vt in about 1900. She was the baby of the
family, her parents immigrated long before Ellis Island opened. There were 10
children, 8 of whom lived to adult hood. The oldest sister married, had 2
children and died in Burlington. The father was a rabbi, had an active
congregation, and was known and respected in the Christian community.

The family eventually moved to New York where the remaining silblings married and
had families. Since the older sisters started ... er... fibbing about their ages,
my MIL had to adjust also. AFter a while I really think she didn't know how old
she was. I decided to find out about this very colorful and talented family. I
sent for documents, birth certificates, marriage, and death certificates. I noted
everything I had as far as dates and married names. I noted the area where their
farm was located.

I received a large envelope in the mail and there were the documents, all stating
that no records could be found. I was dumbfounded. I called the office and spoke
to the woman who signed the letter. As soon as I mentioned my name, she said:
from California? Seems that she and two others checked the vital statistics
archives, once under the name MOSSOWITZ, again under the name MOSS, and again
under the name MOSKOWITZ (Just in case). They checked twice. She told me they
had never had such a large request and they felt awful that I invested $9.50 for
each search (actually they only charged me half out of pity.)

I couldn't understand it. Didn't the census people come around? She said
probably the children were born at home, the farm was remote, perhaps the census
just didn't want to travel to the farm? Is that possible? A fellow genealogist
emailed me and told me that he found it hard to believe that a family could be
omitted >from all censuses. He said that people know the location and history of
every plot of land in the state and surely a Jewish family would have been
remembered.

I have decided to let things be, the mysery of the Mossowitzes will remain.
However a fellow genealogist who is trying to find a link to one of the sister's
husband wrote me that I should continue my quest. I actually started going
through all the records of families with the sirname beginning with the letter
"M". So far no luck.

Recording Phone Interviews #general

Bridget Wynne <rabbiwynne@...>
 

Hello:

Most of my relatives live far >from me, and I'd like to interview a number of them,
so the telephone seems like the only option. I'm interested in hearing advice from
anyone who's done this. Is there any easy way for someone without good
technological skills to tape phone interviews? Any other suggestions on good ways
to do this?

Thanks!

In a photo taken at graveside circa 1917, the tombstone is partially covered with
