Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

I've posted the following photograph on Viewmate-#5410:

"KADUR' - the Jewish Boys Soccer (Football) Team of Drohobycz, Galicia
(Poland) taken in 1933.

at this link:

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=5410

The only people identified so far are:

seated, first row, far left: David Einsiedler, middle of that row, holding
the ball, Leo Zuckerberg, and standing, top row, Coach Schnepps. If you
know the identities of the others in the photo, please contact me privately.

It is a charming photograph, capturing the feeling of camaraderie between
these boys. If you know anything about the history of these sports teams and
clubs please share that with the group.

Thank you!

For those of you interested in the famous author and artist, Bruno Schulz,
who taught and lived in Drohobycz, I've posted a drawing he did in the 1930s
of STELLA BARTISCHAN (BARTISZAN), whose family lived in the nearby spa town
of Truskawicz (Truskawiec), Galicia. (Poland)

Truskawiec, also known as "Strawberry Village," was famous for its mineral
waters and beautiful villa/hotels in the midst of a coniferous forest.

Thank you Ada for posting the article by Bialystok-born Samuel Pisar. I
attended the ceremonies in Paris, France for the inauguration of the
Wall of Names and the Memorial de la Shoah Sunday Jan 23 and Thursday
Jan 27.

Samuel Pisar was one of the speakers on Thursday here and gave a very
moving testimony in French mentioning his hometown Bialystok. I was
there for my great-uncle and great-aunt Hona & Nina MAISLER whose names
are on the wall among the 76,000 deported >from France during the war.
Hona was born in Ciechanowiec and grew up in both Ciechanowiec and
Bialystok before heading to medical school and life as a doctor in Paris.
They were both deported >from Paris to Auschwitz in 1942 and never returned.

I will be very grateful for any information about the Bublacki or
Bublatsky family >from Bialystok. My great- great-grandfather Abraham
Bublacki, born 1846 in Bialystok, came to England in 1879 and changed
his surname to Simons. His brother Hyman (born about 1857) came to
England in 1895 or 1896 and did the same. Their father's first name is
recorded on Isaac's tombstone in London as 'Shima'. I notice a number of
Bublackis >from Bialystok on the Yad Va'Shem list of names and assume
that they are all >from the same family.

BIALYGen Website Now Online #poland

Bialystoker
 

Dear BIALYGenners:

The BialyGen Research Group and mailing list started up in August 2003
just after the Washington DC Jewish Genealogy Conference. At that time,
we talked about developing a website to share our research and
experiences, commemorate our ancestors, and cooperate on projects of
value to BialyGen area researchers.

I am proud to announce that a BialyGen website has now been added to the
JewishGen ShtetLink website at
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/homepage.htm. This is just
a start and is definitely a work in progress.

Please take a look at the website and give us your feedback. Since it is
OUR website, please contribute to it. Ways to contribute are enumerated
at http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/Support.htm.

The results of two projects that have been completed by BialyGen are
shown on the website:

1. Indexing of the 1897 All Russian Census for Grodno Gubernia in
cooperation with Belarus SIG: introductory webpage with a BialyGen
region Surname list is at
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/1897Census.htm.

2. The transliteration of the Yiddish people index of the Bialystoker
Photo Album, a Yizkor Book edited by David Sohn in 1951, can be found at
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/Bialystok_Photo_Album_Surnames.htm.
There are links to the Index pages. In the future, this index will also
be added to the All Poland database.

I want to thank Sidney Zabludow for his help in preparing this website
and Kathryn Wallach for her work in transliterating the Bialystoker
Photo Album.

Please stay tuned to this channel for announcements of additions to our
website.

Coordinator, BialyGen

South African Arrivals 1890 thru 1935 #southafrica

Adam Eisen <aeisen@...>
 

My great-grandfather Harry Rubenstein made several roundtrip journeys from
Philadelphia to South Africa (ie to the Orange Free State) sometime during
the period 1890-1935. Would anyone know which ships traveled this route and
where I might find his arrival/departure records in South Africa?

Regards,
Adam Eisen

Researching EISENSTEIN, MALICKSON (to Philadelphia via England from
Bessarabia), SATTIN SATANOFSKY MOSKOVITZ (to NY and Philadelphia >from Kiev,
Ukraine), LUSTMAN, SCHWARTZ, ACKER (to Philadelphia and Atlantic City from
Botosani, Romania) RUBENSTEIN, SIMON (to Philadephia, Brooklyn, and South
Africa >from Courland, Latvia), ROONEY (to NY and Philadelphia >from Braila,
Romania), JANCOVICI (>from Braila, Romania).

Louis GOLDMAN #southafrica

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

I have found references (both in Herrman and in Saron
& Hotz) to a Louis GOLDMAN who was living in the 1850s
and 1860s in the Cape. He may have lived for some time
at Burghersdorp, and was also active in Aliwal North.
According to one source he was involved in the
Mosenthal Bros. firm.

Does anyone know >from where in Europe he came?

Any information about this person, who worked with a
relative of mine in Aliwal North would be of great
interest to me.

YANKELOVITCH / YOSELOWITZ #southafrica

I am looking for family. Part of my family left Lubcza, Lomza and Suwalki.
They emigrated to South Africa. I believe they went to Johannesburg in the
early 1900's. The family name was Yankelovitch (Yoselowitz - the American
version). The Grand Rabbi of Suwalki was Joseph Yankelovitch, a relative of mine.
If anyone knows how I may be able to find them please let me know.

Re: Finding 60 Year old contacts in Israel from the YadVashem Database #hungary

tom klein <h-sig@...>
 

my first suggestion would be to post a direct link to the page of testimony that you are referring to. (just highlight the part that starts with: "http:/..." at the top of the screen, copy it, and paste it into your message.) when i tried looking for FISCHMANN/sziget/POLK, etc, i couldn't find it.

and second, always, always, always look at the image of the original page of testimony. often, the (correct) name and address (and maybe even phone number!) of the submitter are right there, even if the reported information is (sometimes) inaccurate. you can try starting at their last known address.

I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to track them or their
descendants down?
