Searching BLUMENBERG Relative from Tyczyn #general

Leslie Weinberg <artsoul@...>
 

We are searching for "unknown" BLUMENBERG nephew of my grandfather, >from Tyczyn,
Poland. Last seen in Israel in 1945, might have left for Russia.
Mother and father were Hene (EISEN) BLUMENBERG and Jonas BLUMENBERG,
grandparents Schewa and Chaim EISEN. He had an uncle Markus (my grandfather), an
uncle Moses, and an uncle in Nagyvarad (name unknown) and aunt (Ruchel- in Paris)
from his grandfather's first marriage. He was probably born in the time period
between 1921 and 1923. If anyone knows anything about this man and/or his family,
please email me at lbw50@.... The family here in the U.S. really wants
desperately to find him.

Abe DREZNER of New York #general

Shmuel Fisher <Shmuel@...>
 

In 1963 Abe DREZNER was invited to my wedding. I know this >from my mother's list
of invitees. I would guess that then he would have been in his 40s or 50s. I
believe that he lived in Brooklyn possibly at 145 Minna st. He would have been
related to Alfred FISHER or the GROSSMAN clan of Brooklyn.

Are there any of his descendents out there?

You might want to check the burials in Buenos Aires. All three surnames appear.
Keep in mind that it was very common for indviduals to adopt Spanish names (may be
similar to their Hebrew/Yiddish name).

Re: Member of Polish Diet between the World Wars #general

On Wed, 16 Mar 2005 03:00:40 UTC, IsraelP@... (IsraelP) opined:

We are trying to identify a family member who served in the Polish Diet between
the world wars. His name was WAJNRYB, but we don't have a given name.

Is such information available someplace? (What happened to him is extra
credit.)

Israel Pickholtz

If "diet" in this case means "parliament", it is called the "Sejm". Most
parliaments take great pride in their history (in some cases, even deservedly so).
The Sejm has to have records of its membership of former years. It isn't beyond
imagination that it even knows the fate of some of them, or perhaps that it even
has biographies of them.

Re: Genealogy and Mixed Marriage #general

Dick Plotz
 

Ann Rabinowitz wrote earlier this month:

I was researching Colonial Jewish families and used Rabbi Malcolm H. Stern's
book "First American Jewish Families" as a resource. Unfortunately, Rabbi Stern
did not believe in the inclusion of non-Jewish descendants and therefore left
them out.

While I understood his reason for this and respect it, it was annoying as I was
unable to connect a number of people to their appropriate family trees.
Some of these non-Jews had descendants who eventually married Jews once again as
it so happens in our multi-ethnic society and they wanted to know about that
earlier ancestry.

I hope that those who feel as Rabbi Stern did realize that while your tree is
your own business to construct as you wish, limiting it to Jews only withholds
your heritage >from those who may want to share it despite the fact that they may
not be halachicly Jewish.
While I agree with Ann's conclusions, she is probably wrong in her assumptions
about Rabbi Stern's motivations. "First American Jewish Families" does indeed
include many non-Jewish branches, sometimes extending down to living descendants.
If Rabbi Stern failed to extend as high a proportion of non-Jewish lines as of
Jewish lines -- I am not sure whether this is actually the case -- it was most
likely because of lack of time to carry his research as far as he would have
liked, and perhaps also because Jewish descendants may have been more eager to
respond to questions about their early American ancestors than non-Jewish
descendants were to respond to questions about their Jewish ancestors.

Of course Rabbi Stern is no longer available to resolve this debate.
