What an exciting event for Celia and her newly discovered relatives.
Trully amazing. I just wish that I could find my ancestral family of
Britzmann. Does anyone know of any such families today?

Dear Friends -

I know that jokes are generally considered off-topic for the List, but I
hope I will be indulged, as this one has a family connection. And after all,

Kreises in Moravia? #austria-czech

Tsvi Sinai <t_sinai1@...>
 

I know that Bohemia was parted in "Kreises" ( who drew those
"Kreises and what was their purpose I don't know!!! ? ).
But how was it in Moravia? The same pattern or something
entirely different?
Who can answer me?

with kind regards,

I am a bit supprised by your links with Peter Barber, Celia.
I was sure that Peter's ancestry is >from Poland, as we have
a common cousin, Eve Klein, nee Barber. She is my first
cousin, born in Bratislava ( the same as I ) >from the Fuchs-
Redlich (Bisenz) side and Peter's second cousin
from the Barber side.

exhibition in Memel / Klaipeda East Prussia #germany

Dr. Ruth Leiserowitz
 

">from the border town out into the world
100 years of Jewish life in Memel / Klaipeda"

In the most northerly Prussian port town a highly varied Jewish life
developed in the middle of the 19th century, inspired by immigrants
from the East and the West. The changing political allegiances of the
town and region after 1919 made it easy for the township to
blossom rapidly, growing >from approx. 2000 inhabitants to almost
7000 inhabitants in the interwar period.

Moreover, in the 30s Klaipeda became an important centre of Zionist
emigration. The anti-Semitic politics in Germany which began after
1933 had rapid effects on the situation in the Memel territory.
When Hitler occupied the region in March 1939 by issuing an
ultimatum, the Jewish community was suddenly exterminated.
The Jews of the region, who primarily fled to Lithuania, fell foul of
the fiendish interplay of the National Socialist and
the Stalinist dictatorship, which only a few of them survived.

Re: Immigrants from Poland returning #general

Mila Begun <mmbegun@...>
 

Another story: my uncle came to the U.S. shortly after my grandfather
did around 1906, but never sent for his wife and children as my
grandfather had. His first return trip to Poland, after being in New
York for several years, was because his wife was very ill. She died
from t.b. as did 2 of their 3 sons. He remained in Poland for awhile,
moving in with his sister. Eventually he married again, and again he
came to the U.S. without his wife and children.

He gave it a fair try, but never adapted enough to settle his family
here. He returned home to Poland, gathered up the family and emigrated
to Israel, where his descendants live today.

Menachem Mendel of Kock's family #rabbinic

Claire Sztern <claire.sztern@...>
 

Shalom !
There's a tradition in my family that says my 2nd great grandfather,
Maylekh ha Cohen, was the great grand son of Rabbi Menachem Mendel of
Kock. I would like to know if someone knows if Menachem Mendel was a
Cohen.

My cousin who did searches about this family in the 1960's (I think)
wrote that the names of Menachem Mendel's parents were Aryeh Leib
STERN and Sarah MORGENSTERN, that he had (at least) one brother (named
Israel Shmuel), that his wife was Chaya bas Rabbi Moshe LIPSZYC of
Warsaw, and that he had (at least) one son (David) and two daughters
(Sarah or Sarah Tsina and another). Does anyone have infos about this
being right or wrong, and the names or infos of any other sibling,
child, grandparents...?

Thank you in advance!
