Genners,

On Oct. 6, 1913 Daniel MENDELOWITZ arrived in New York, He was 18
years old, and the son of Naphtali MENDELOWITZ. He came >from Slonim,
and was staying with his sister, Mary, who had arrived several years
earlier. He may also have had a brother Eleazer who came to this
country after him.

I am trying to locate their descendants. Any help would be greatly
appreciated.

Rabbi Kalonymus Kalmen of Chausy #rabbinic

Chaim freedman
 

I am looking for information about Rabbi Kalonymus Kalman of Chausy,
Mogilev Gubernia, and his family.

He lived at the time of the Vilna Gaon and was a noted Kabbalist. He
is mentioned in Betsalel Landau's "Hagaon Hekhasid Mivilnah" in the
additional notes as being the "grandfather" of the "Leshem". In a
book about Rav Kook it states that the "Leshem" was a descendant of
the Ari.

A descendant of Kalonymus Kalmen, Rabbi Aharon Meir ALTHSULER, who
was a Shokhet in Mariupol (Ekaterinoslav Gubermia) published in 1893
"Klalei Hatkhalat Hakhokhma", drawing on kabbalah texts and
referring to his ancestor Kalonymus Kalman.

Genealogies of the ALTSHULER families do not mention Kalonymus
Kalman. Yet there was an ALTSHULER who was Rabbi in Chausy,
(Gottlieb's "Ohalei Shem"), Rabbi Shlomo-Zalman ben Yehoshua
ALTSHULER, born 1840. His ancestry is given there extensively,
but no mention of KK.

I can find very few references to KK. "Otsar Harabanim" states that
he was a scholar in Vilna (1770). Yet there is no mention of him in
"Kiriah Neemanah" or "Ir Vilna". Vilensky's "Khassidim Umisnagdim"
lists him in the index, but he does not appear in the text.

Any help will be appreciated, either about Kalonymus Kalman or the
genealogy of the ELIASHIV and ALTSHULER families.

Information Resources for Israelis in Israel and those who have family in Israel #belarus

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

With the opening of the online database of Yad Vashem, there has been an
increase in the number of people inquiring as to the possibility of
tracking down relatives and acquaintances in Israel.
In addition to helping those of you >from abroad who can not read the pages
of testimony in hebrew, we are preparing a short guide for doing research in
Israel. Doing research in Israel often requires that the research be done in
hebrew and that the person requesting the information identify himself as an
Israeli citizen, and a relative. This one page guide is for those Israelis
or anyone who has family in Israel that can do this research for them.
The first version of the guide is in hebrew. We hope to have the english
version up in a few days and will notify you when it is posted.

It is only in French so far, but very interesting. Regards,

(December 3, 2004) Hello, Gersigers,
The internment camp of Les Milles, near Aix en Provence, France held many Jews,
and particularly German Jews during the war. That was the case for my father and
grandfather. The French want to create a memorial and archives for the camp.
Very little information seems to be available.

If you know of anyone, directly or indirectly, who has information or documents
about the Camp des Milles, would you please let me know? I will either forward
it or connect you with the historian who contacted me. Thank you,

Re: Emigration to UK in 1938 #austria-czech

robert fraser <robertandginafraser@...>
 

Peter has asked about Jewish migrants >from Vienna entering Great Britain.

I happen to own a very interesting little book titled The Internment of
Aliens. It was written by F Lafitte, described as a social and economic
researcher, and published in 1940 by Penguin. The book was found by my late
Parents in Booths bookshop in Hay-on-Wye (UK readers will know what this is)
many years ago, but only recently, when doing background research for my
family history, did I actually take the book off the shelf and read it.

I wished I had done so earlier. It's a fascinating read: full of
interesting statistics on the make-up of the refugees, eye-witness accounts
and parliamentary speeches. The subject, as may be guessed >from the title,
relates to the efforts to get refugees (Jewish and non-Jewish) out of
Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia, usually without British government
assistance. It details the reasons behind the British government's policy of
internment, how it was actually physically carried out and how "enemy alien
tribunals" operated. It also gives descriptions of the internment camps -
some of which seem to have been pretty frightful.

Prior to the start of WWII the UK (as well as the US) had a

In the case of a cousin, the Vienna police records state that this
person "went to England" does not reflect whether or not they actually
gained entry. If that is the case, what happened to those persons?

Mogielnica & changed his name to ROJTMAN. I was never able to

Yakow Isaac WEISBLUM is probably not his descendant

Surname Britzman / Brizman / Bricman / Bryzman #poland

Barry S Britzman <prydeiniwr@...>
 

As a newcomer to this list I need some expert guidance on my research.
My Grandfather (Born about 1860, arrived London late 19th C died in 1914)
Hermann Ernst Britzman Occupation Tailor in London (at various times -
Shoreditch, Hoxton Old Town, Marylebone and Soho. Father Daniel Britzman
(Manufacturer of Vinegar. >from Hermann's marriage Certificate).This is
all that is known of Daniel Britzman.

I have seen various spellings of the name Britzman (Britzmann, Britzman,
Brizman, Bryzman, Bricman,Brycman)in the Yizkor Books But have no idea
of the significance of the books. I do not understand Hebrew,Yiddish or
German.

Also I have no idea of the origin or meaning of the name and no
connection with any ancestral family which I would dearly wish. Can
anyone help me or suggest anything?

I forgot to add that I live in the UK and am old eneough to have lived
through WW2. The name Britzman was a huge burden with people calling us
"Nazis" (My father was in the RAF during WW2) The irony is that The name
is Jewish and there are only 7 households in Modern Germany with the
surname Britzman so it is extremely unlikely that the name is of German
origin even though there are at least 2 towns named "Britz".

Best wishes
