Memorial stone at Dregelypalank #hungary

levinson <levinson@...>
 

Dear All,

I have a photo of the memorial stone for the holocaust victims from
Dregelypalank (thanks to Bacskai Sandor). Before the war the village
belonged to Hont Megye and now it is part of Nograd Megye.
It contains a list of names: Adler, Berger, Engelmann, Frisch, Fischer,
Goldschmied, Gero, Hochfelder, Kolmann, Krausz, Lengyel, Moskovics, Oblat,
Patriasz, Schonberg, Vig, Weiner, Wollner and Hermann.
If you are interested please contact me privately.

The text onpart of the viewmate 5858 and 5859 are written in German, the
letters are Ghotic, a script I learned some 60 years ago in gymnasiumm
but novadays it is seldomly find even in the German speaking part of
Switzerland except in older publication and in printed form.

It would be helpful for the translator to show the
date and place these letters were written from.

Also some of the text on the last two viewmates are
either German or Yiddish in Roman script.

Why "her" kicks?
You seem to think that this is illegal?
Surely general announcements are not secret?

Over here most papers' death notices are put on usenet on a daily basis by
a volunteer. This is very handy when using groups.google.com:

Neustadt, Germany birth certificates #general

David Priever
 

Dear fellow Jewishgenners,

I have been attempting to obtain the birth certificates of two distantly
related ancestors. They were the HOWARD Brothers comedy team of the
Vaudeville era.

Namely, they are:

William LEVKOWITZ, born April 14, 1886 (stage name: Willie HOWARD)
Isadore LEVKOWITZ, born July 7, 1881 (stage name: Eugene HOWARD)

Both were born in Neustadt, Silesia, Germany (present-day Prudnik, Opole,
Poland). Their parents Rabbi Leopold and Pauline (nee GLASS) LEVKOWITZ were
originally >from Russia (perhaps Merkine in Lithuania, but I have no
documentary proof of this).

I have been trying to put together a biography of the family since they were
well know during their years on the Broadway stage and some films (Willie
was in three full length motion pictures with some very great stage/screen
names).

I was in touch with a gentleman named Robery RASZCZYK of Zdzieszowice,
Poland but have lost touch with him.

Can anybody out there give me other sources to perhaps obtain these long
sought after birth certificates?

Thank you very much in advance.

Sincerely,

David Joel Priever

my Yad Vashem story #ukraine

ruby stein <reubstn@...>
 

Hello to all. This is my first time writing to the
site. I do very much enjoy reading the posts of
others. I’d like to share a remarkable story which
opened up because of the Yad Vashem database. At the
moment things are stalled but I hope that this is far
from complete and maybe someone >from the group can
give me some advice.

I did not think that my maternal grandfather, Yankel
Winokur >from Detroit (who I knew well, he died in
1976) had any close relatives who were killed in the
Shoah but just for a chance I submitted my mothers
maiden name and her fathers ancestral shteibal,
WINOKUR and Antonowka. WOW. About 30 names came up.
Now >from the information I was able to gather >from the
Jesish Gen website Antonowka had less then 1000 people
living in it at the turn of the century and over 90%
of them were Jewish. Therefore I figured it is pretty
good bet that these 30 names are all related to my
grandfather in someway. Most were named Vinokur but
there was one that stood out, Faige Seigel, This is a
name I have been searching for for 2 years.

I had a picture of my grandfather’s mother with a
woman named Faige Siegel and 5 girls but I did not
know who she was. I clicked on her name and discovered
that her parents were the same as my zeides. She was a
Sister who I did not know about. Moreover, the Yad
Vashem web site says she had 5 daughters (just like in
my picture!) who were all killed in the holocaust, 3
got married and two did not. Now I have their names
and the names of their husbands. There were so many
more nameson the website. All must have been cousins.
Aunts? Uncles? Then I clicked on Yisrael Vinokur
whose parents were the same as my zeides. A brother of
my grandfather who I never knew about. I found out
that the submitter of the pages of testimony lived in
Israel and his name is Yitzchak Vinokur. Is he alive?
I contacted the secratary of the Israeli geneology
society, Rose Feldman, and explained my problem. She
wrote back almost immediatedly with his phone number
but told me he is having some memory loss. I have been
in contact with his wife and daughter. Unfortunately,
Mr Vinokur has become somewhat demented during the
last few years. His daughter told me that her father
wrote a journal about Antonovka after the war. She was
going to search for it for me but has not been able to
find it. I talked to her and she told me her father
became very upset and agitated when she asked him
about the names on the pages of testimony and she
could not find his journal. but she will continue to
try. This man may be able to tell me about lots of
relations of my grandfather. Maybe there is lots of
interesting info about my zeides shtetel. Maybe there
are pictures. I only have two pictures. This is so
frustrating because so much information (30 Names!) is
so close and yet so far. Its there, in his brain.

Does anyone know any information about Antonowka or
about the family Vinokur? My grandfathers father was
Mordecai and his mother was Tzeral. A sister was named
Faige and a brother named Yisrael.

Does anyone have any idea as to how I can figure out
relationships to these other 30 names considering the
memory loss of the submitter of the pages of
testimony?

Thank you and Chag Sameach.

Hi,
I'm no expetrt in names but a member of my family born
under the name Rochel, was converted into christianity
around 1900 and baptised as Rosalia.
So I would guess there is a link between the names.
