FINKELSTEIN from Metula, Israel #general

Thia Persoff
 

Shalom Members,

I was told that when my FINKELSTEIN relatives immigrated to Israel in about
1890, they had settled in the village of Metula, in northern Israel
bordering with Lebanon.
I would like to verify it, and get as much info about them as possible. I
would be grateful - if any member knows whom I should contact for
information - will let me know.

My ancestors lived in Wallerstein and then Kleinerdlingen.
In particular, two of them were the Landrabbiner of the area (the last I
believe). They were Mordecai Michael KOHN and his father-in-law, David
Weiskopf. Their graves are still standing in the cemetery there.
Does anyone else have any connection with these towns?

commentary on the Mishna, was born in Wallerstein in 1579; his grandfather was
Moshe Wallerstein. Later, there was a series of rabbis in Schnaittach,
Franconia, named Wallerstein.

PICK in South Africa #general

Israel P
 

While looking for a South African Pickholz family whose seven year old son ended
up in UK in 1901, I had a look at a few PICK as well, just in case. (There
areseveral in JOWBR, but without any real identifying information.)

One of the references is Morris Bennie (Moishe) Pick was born on 21 Oct 1883
(birthplace unknown). He died on 9 Mar 1974 in Pretoria. He married Fanny
Suttner on 21 Jun 1921 in Senekal, South Africa.

Is there some way I can use the marriage date to get a record that might tell
us if his name had been shortened >from some form of Pickholz?

Israel - I can't thank you enough for alerting us to the link to the Israel
National Radio broadcast of the program featuring Tamar Yonah's interview
with Gary Mokotoff.
Gary's knowledgeable response to callers seeking information on their
surnames - and his interesting anecdotes - will undoubtedly pique the
interest of the program's radio audience in genealogy.

Jewish immigrants could get to Texas by sailing into Galviston.
Mine did. My insight is to go to this web site:
http://home.att.net/~wee-monster/galveston.html
and learn all about Galveston immigration records.

Hi,

In the course of my genealogical research I came a across two burials in
South Africa that were in the JOWBR database that seemed like they may
be family members. Could anyone suggest someway for me to get
additional information about these people?

Here is the information I found:

Sam Ber Fine died June 3rd, 1985
Buried: Chevra Kadisha Cemetery, Johannesburg

Maurice Isaac Fine died May 2nd, 1961
Buried Stellawood Cemetery, Durban

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
