Expulsion from Latvia to Ukraine #latvia

Rochelle
 

In 1915 my relatives, Ruben and Leah RUBINSTEIN and their children Ida and
Rebecca (and possibly also Bernhard and Zelig, also called Janau), were
expelled >from Frauenberg in Latvia to Berdjansk on the Azov Sea in the
Ukraine. It seems that most of the family died there, perhaps in the pogroms
in that area in 1919. All I know is that in 1920 or 1921, Ida, now an
orphan, arrived in Berlin, where she was fetched by her brother, David and
taken to Cape Town, South Africa.

I am particularly interested to know if there is a way to trace my relatives
in Berdjansk, if there are lists of Ukrainian pogrom victims, and which
Jewish organizations helped orphans leave the Ukraine and be re-united with
relatives around the globe.

I'd be happy to hear >from others who have tried to trace Latvians expelled
to the Ukraine in the First World War.

Re: Smolensk #belarus

My maternal grandfather, Abe MOGIN, and his brother came >from Smolensk to
NYC in about 1910 (I'm too lazy to look up the exact date in my files right
now). His mother and sister came >from Smolensk much later. The family history
said that you needed to have a male head of household to live in Smolensk but
the mother and sister apparently were able to live there after my
grandfather and his brother left. My grandfather's sister was able to study ballet in
Moscow as a child. That seems to be an unusual opportunity for a Jewish
girl. When she came to this country, she finished her education in NYC,
graduating >from high school. Then she became a vaudeville dancer.

Visitors to Latvia #latvia

Donald and Sandra Hirschhorn <donsandyh@...>
 

If you are planning to visit Latvia and had relatives lost in the Holocaust
from the Liepaja (Libau) area, you should visit THE LIBAU JEWISH MEMORIAL
"Honoring the Memory of Holocaust and Gulag Victims >from Liepaja." This
memorial was dedicated this past June with the names of 6,400 victims.

On behalf of my relatives and myself, we will always be grateful to Edward
Anders and Vladimirs Bans for their tremendous effort in bringing this to
fruition.

EKATERINASLAV book of birthday records? #ukraine

GR4@...
 

I recently came across a mention on a website
(http://bessleo.home.att.net/military.htm) of a record
called "Book of Birthday Records of Jews in the Town of
EKATERINASLAV" for someone born in 1905. I would like to find out
more about this (for births in 1905 or any year after
1894) I have sent an email to the owners of the website
and haven't received a reply yet, and I don't find any
other reference to this book via Google, etc. Does
anyone know anything about this book/record?

Thank you,

Anyone interested should contact Chana Furman at
<ehfurman@netvision.net.il> and she can make all the arrangements.

the IGS.

2. If not, can the issue be read on the www. or elsewhere.

I have a record in a family tree for a Gustav
UFFENHEIMER, born in Germany, 21 Nov 1871. he seems to
have ended up in London. Of related interest is that
his brother Prof. Dr. Albert UFFENHEIMER passed
through London whilst fleeing >from National socialist
Germany.

Does anyone know whether Gustav UFFENHEIMER married,
and whether or not he had any descendants?

Kirzner/Kirshner in Kletsk (now) Belarus #general

henryn <henryn@...>
 

I'm looking for family information on two brothers >from Kletsk, now Belarus,
Joseph and Louis KIRZNER, who came to the U.S. around 1900. A third
brother, Morduch, was left behind and perished, with his family, in the
Holocaust. Their parents _may_ have been Avron and Simka.

About the names:

At immigration, Louis --who had virtually no English-- pointed to his hat
when asked for his name. He became Louis Capp.

I've seen "Kirshner" given as the anglicized version of "Kirzner" but I've
also seen both seemingly existing side-by-side in old country records.

As late as 1937, Joseph was using "Joseph Kirzner" in official
correspondence.

Thanks,

Henry

FEDER and COHN, California, 1850s-present #usa

Rebecca Fenning <macguffin317@...>
 

Dear all,

I am currently researching my great-uncle's family, who settled in
California in the 1850s and 1860s, and have so far done work in censuses and
online records, trying to get a basic outline of where his family was
located and trying to flesh out the bare bones of the pedigree chart he gave me.

The first arrival in the US was apparently his g-grandfather, Moses Mendel
FEDER, born around 1836-1838 in Prussia -- my uncle was told he arrived in
San Francisco in 1852. In 1860-1870, he lived in Colusa County, California,
before moving to San Francisco where he lived until the 1906 earthquake,
which sent him south to Los Angeles, where he died in 1915. Upon his death,
the LA Times ran an obituary featuring a photograph (>from a 1912 article
about his golden wedding anniversary) and a discussion of his role as a
leader in Jewish charities and synagogue affairs. In the 1860 census, he is
listed living with a Samuel FEDER, born about 1839, who I assume was a
brother, but I have been unable so far to find him in any subsequent
censuses. In the 1880 census, Moses' mother, Rosalie (b c1798) is living
with the family in San Francisco.

In 1862, Moses FEDER married Esther COHN, born about 1842-1846 in Prussia.
They had at least 7 children:

Henrietta, b 1866, m. Charles M. FRIEDBERG in 1885
Pauline, (ca1873-1877)
Louis, b 1873
Rachel (Ray), b 1875
Dolly/Dora, b c1875-1877
Gustave, 1877-1945
and my uncle's grandfather, Abraham S FEDER, b 1869.

In 1894, Abe FEDER married Annie COHN, born 1871, probably in Ventura
County, California. Her parents were Morris COHN (b c1844) and Emily (or
Amelia, b ca1841), who lived in Saticoy and Santa Paula during the period
1880-1910. I am still trying to piece this web of relationships together --
but Morris had a brother named Simon COHN who founded the town of New
Jerusalem (now El Rio) in Ventura County in 1875. He was married to a
Minnie COHN, apparently a sister of Esther COHN, the wife of Moses FEDER.

I'm posting this in hopes of finding anyone with connections to these
families -- or with other pioneer families in Colusa & Ventura Counties --

Thanks in advance! Rebecca Fenning Los Angeles, C <macguffin317@hotmail.com>
