Mystery Man from Sierpc, Poland #general

suejurisz@...
 

My second posting on Viewmate is a photograph of my husband Jacob, his
Uncle Sol and Aunt Lillie (Leah) Jurysz, together with an unidentified gentleman
from the city of Sierpc. Can anyone tell me who this man might be? He’s the
one standing in front, holding the little boy’s hand.

(Mirkado) Mordechai (Al)-Batsrawi #latinamerica

s.a.josovic <sajasovic@...>
 

I am enquiring about (Mirkado) Mordechai (Al)-Batsrawi. Mordechai was a son
of Avraham who came to Erets Israel >from Basra in Iraq in 1830. Mordechai
himself was a merchant in Beirut and then moved to Buenos Aires where he
died in the year 5677 (1916-1917). More details of the family can be found
in the book Yehudei haMizrah beErets Yisrael vol. 2 pages 40 and 702. When
did Mordechai arrive in Argentina and with whom? What is the exact date of
his death and where are his descendants today?

Sierpcer Memorial Group Photo - Viewmate File 5534 #general

suejurisz@...
 

I have just posted a photo on Viewmate of a group of survivors >from the
city of Sierpc, Poland. (This is the same photo that appears in the two
small memorial booklets published in the late 40's, as well as in the large
Sierpc Yizkor book published in 1959.)

Several members of my husband's family appear in this photo, and I would
like to know the names of other people in the group.

Headstones posted on ViewMate #germany

Andreas J Schwab <andreas.schwab@...>
 

I posted two more headstones >from Schwanfeld cemetery on VieMate:
VM5502: Hanna Frank, possibly nee Schwab. I am surprised to find "Hanna" spelled
phonetically (he-alef-nun-nun-alef).

My g-aunt Hanna was married to Emil Schwab. If this is correct, then Emil's Jewish
name would be Yizhak. Is this a common combination?

I don't read Hebrew and I would appreciate a translation of the whole inscription.
VM5520: The back side of this headstone says: B. Schwab, Rimpar. It would be great
if somebody could decipher the death date.

Help Translating letters - Gersig does it again! #germany

Elizabeth Levy <levyliz@...>
 

Dear Friends,
I am overwhelmed once again by the wonderful generousity of the Gersig family.

My letter asking for translation help came out today and I came home to find
nine letters >from people willing to help. I don't know why it surprised
me.... It happens evertime I ask for help. You all are wonderful!

I will now sit down to write back to all those people individually (perhaps
if everyone does about two letters it will all be finished!). In the
meantime, no need for more responses. Thank you to those too who were just
about to write but didn't get to it yet! Maybe next time!

My donation in appreciation is on the way!

Gwyrich Castle, Abergele, North Wales--Hachsharah (Hapoel Hamizrachi?) #germany

MBernet@...
 

I have discovered the British alien registration record ("get out of
internment, free") of a probable relative, Milli Mirjam Koenigshoefer, which gives
her address as Gwyrich Castle, Abergele. She is listed as "agricultural
trainee." I assume this Gwyrich Castle was a Hachsharah (training farm for
preparing for Israel).

Abergele is a seaside resort on the coast of North Wales, about half way between
Rhyl and Conway Bay. Not far away is St Asaph ("the world's smallest city") where
a Hachsharah of Bachad/Hapoel Hamizrachi was located.

Does anyone have information on Gwyrich Castle, or the St Asaph hachsharah?
Were they the same? Does anyone know of Milli Mirjam Koenigshoefer, born
Breslau, 1920?

Yiddish letter from Rabbi Krohn of Borszczow #general

Israel P
 

My wife's brother just gave me a copy of a letter written in 1924 to my wife's great-
grandfather (in London) >from a Rabbi D(?) Krohn of Borszczow Poland. We think
that the rabbi is thanking the zayde for something, though we don't know of any
family connections to Borszcsow.

The letter is in Yiddish, which I don't read. You can find it at
http://www.pikholz.org/KrohnLetter.html

I'd appreciate any insight anyone has.

Czernowitz birth records #general

RICHARD J TRICHTER <dst5moo@...>
 

I have on a document the date of birth (Nov 9th, 1873) of my grandfather
including the volume number and page number at the Bureau of Vital
Statistics (births for 1873) in Czernowitz, Austria-Hungary (subsequently
Romania, then USSR and now Ukraine) where his birth was recorded in 1873.
I am wondering if someone knows if these records still exist (either
original or facsimile). I know the records existed before WWII in the
late 1930's.

Does anyone know a contact that could answer this question and/or the
current bureau in the Ukraine to contact to get a copy of the document
(or page entry).

Regards
RJ Trichter
