Zylberman/Rotenberg from Mlawa #poland

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

I've just discovered a Zylberman link to Mlawa.
Boruch Jciek ZYLBERMAN (age 19) and his 18 year old wife Ryfka (nee
ROTENBERG) had a girl in Mlawa named Ryfka in 1864.

Boruch Jciek was born in 1845 in Swiniary and his birth was recorded in
nearby Chorzele.

Zylberman is a relatively rare name in Mlawa and Ryfka's birth is the
first of a group that include Abram (1867), Dawid (1869), Berek Eliasz
(1876), Chawa Laia (1878), Chejwet (1881) and Chaim Mordka (1883).

Note that I have not yet ordered the Mlawa records for these but am
assuming that they are the children of Boruch Jciek and Ryfka since no
earlier Zylberman records have been found in Mlawa to date.

If this sounds familiar, please contact me privately at
meyers01@comcast.net

SZPIRO & HERTZBERG from Przasnysz #poland

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

I've just discovered a family link to the SZPIRO family in Przasnysz.

Golda KASTELBERG was married to Motel DZIEDZIC and their
grandson Josek DZIEDZIC married my great-grandmother's sister
Szajna ZYLBERMAN.

After Motel died in 1848, Golda remarried in 1850 a Mosiek Hersz SZPIRO,
son of Hersz Jankiefowicz and Royza (nee HERTZBERG) SZPIRO. So Josek's
father, who was named after his father who died earlier in 1848, would
have beenbrought up in the SZPRIO household and would have known no other
father.

If this sounds familiar, please contact me privately at

Deciphering places; Matzva Confusion and Av Beit Din of Checiny #poland

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

Dear Group ~

Before I proceed with my questions I want to take a moment to give a very
warm thanks to all of you who have responded to my previous querys; the time
you have spent to help with translations and make suggestions and provide
guidance had been phenomenal; very hepful and incredible appreciated. In
many cases you have been the reasons that my research has progressed and I
am truly greatful.

That being said I hope the following requests will be of a much easier
caliber.

1)A Russian govt document >from the late 1800s was translated for me with the
following information:

Keletskoy Gubernia; Sipushey or Onpushsky uezed and city of Oipusha or
Onpucha.

The closest I could come was Opoczna in Kielce.

Does that make sense or am I missing semething?

2)I have a postcard written by my ggg grandfather in which he signs it "son
of the Gaon HaTzaddik SheHaya Av Beis Din Checiny" which means "son of the
Chief Rabbinic Judge of Checiny". Is anyone aware as to how I might be able
to trace who this Chief Rabbi might be? He lived >from the late 1700s to
sometime in the 1800s (dates unsure).

I anyone familiar with a book called "Slownik Historii Kielckich Zydow"
writtten by Krzysztof Urbanski and Rafal Blumenfeld? It has been suggested
that I might find some answers in this book and I'm wondering if anyone
might have it in his posession or have a suggestion as to where to locate
it.

3) The matzeva of this Rabbi's granddaughter reads: Leah bat *shin shin*
R'Israel Icyk grandson of the genius Rabbi *shin shin* R'Shimon haTzaddek.

Any suggestions as to the meaning of *shin shins*?

Thank you, as always for your time and help.

Best regards,

Linda Silverman Shefler

Visit to Warsaw #poland

Lee Nydell <lnydell@...>
 

My wife and I are going to be visiting Warsaw in a few months.

We are looking for a private English speaking guide, who also has a car
to help us.

If the guide is Jewish it would be a benefit, but this is not necessary.

We want to spend about four (4) hours one day within the city of Warsaw.

The second day we want to spend about seven (7) hours visiting the
immediate environs of Warsaw. We want to visit among other sites that
can be suggested Zelazowa Wola (Chopin's birthplace), the baroque
Palace of the Radziwill family in Nieborow, and the Monastery in
Niepokalanow.
