Fortschritt Lodge #general

Michael Reich <mareich@...>
 

Can anyone shed some light on the origins of the Fortschritt Lodge? It is the
name of a burial section holding my ancestors (WERSHUB) in the Highland View
cemetery in Queens, NY. I have photos of the gateposts, but other than the
Fortschritt name, everything else is in Hebrew or Yiddish, which I can't read. I
presume this is a landsmanshaft, but I don't know anything about it. I believe
the Wershubs (possibly originally WARSHAWSKY) came >from the Vilna area.

Lativian Roots #general

cromrider@juno.com <cromrider@...>
 

There is an excellent website that can be accessed at
http://www.roots-saknes.lv/mainroots.htm which deals with Latvian genealogy and
history. It includes information about all the major denominations in Latvia
during the late 1800's into the 20th century.

There is a section on "Ethnicity" which includes a large section on the Jews of
Latvia. Among the interesting things listed is a surname list of physicians,
among which is a large percentage of Jews. A number of other subjects with Jewish
surnames listed are available to read.

Other headings will include fascinating subjects such as the incidence of
illegitimate births in Latvia, documents involving quarrels between lovers that
had to be decided by a priest, and all the usual "skeletons" that genealogists of
all religions find so fascinating. It makes for interesting reading and we learn
that once again, we are all so human.

Help Locating Member of Tel-Aviv Mizritch Society? #general

Adam Richter
 

Dear Geners,
This July, I am going to visit Israel and do some more research about my family.
I am trying to find out if in Tel-Aviv the Mizritch Society holds regular meetings
or do they have an office that people can come and visit?

I am trying to locate a person that came >from Miedzyrzec Podlaski (Mizritch) that
may have some information about my mother's family.

I have picture of my mother and a gentlemen taken before the war in Miedzyrzec
Podlaski.
I would like to locate him, he may reside in a suburb of Tel Aviv, he may have
information on my mother's family?

Today he will be about 90 years old. He had 3 sons with his first wife. He
remarried some time ago.
I hope that a Mizritch Society member may respond to this inquiry.
Please respond privately.

Re: Bessie #general

My grandmother first went by the name Betsy, that is what is on her marriage
certificate. Later she was called Bessie, that is what is on her gravestone.
I was named Betsy after her. I always disliked my name as it was so American, but
when I saw her marriage certificate than it was ok! Her name in Eastern Europe was
Basha/Batya

Success: Just Pick up the Phone #general

Schelly Dardashti <dardasht@...>
 

Dear Genners,
The moral of this success story is "just pick up the phone ... and keep calling,
even if it takes years!"

I have heard for some 30 years about the DARDASHTI who went off to Argentina about
100 years ago to make his fortune and changed his name to NEMAN. People in several
branches said that every few years he returned to visit family in Iran.

About seven years ago, I heard that a friend of my husband's nephew was a
descendant of that particular family. Finally got a phone number. Since then, I've
been calling (>from Southern Nevada, when we lived there, and later >from here in
Tel Aviv), no one was ever home (even allowing for the time difference between Tel
Aviv and Los Angeles).
Another DARDASHTI branch (renamed SHAKIB in Teheran when they arrived >from Isfahan
in the 1950s) in Kentucky had information on the Argentinian immigrant, a direct
descendant of their line, but although we knew the Argentine immigrant was related
to both of us, we couldn't find the connction between Kentucky and the rest of us.
But we all claimed Mr. Argentina as a cousin.

Every once in awhile, I'd call the number in LA and even checked it online.
Last night, I picked up the phone again and -- miracles do happen -- found him
sitting at home watching a video with his son.
He was amazed I was looking for him, no one had ever told him. He remembers seeing
my husband and at various social events, his friend (our nephew), whom he sees
frequently, never mentioned we were trying to contact him, etc. etc. He sees our
relatives all the time in Los Angeles at many social events.
He was thrilled that I had called him, fascinated by the project, and said his
father was alive in his 80s and knows all about the family and even thinks there
may be some written genealogical records. I immediately sent off an email with
relevant information after our very long and delightful conversation. He'll take
it to his father and will record whatever information his father has on the
relationship and connections between the families.
With this year's conference in Las Vegas, I will certainly make a quick sidetrip
to LA to meet this new branch.

Moral of the story, dear Genners: Never give up and keep calling!

With best wishes,

Schelly Talalay Dardashti
