Looking for Information on an Abraham REISS, Tyczyn Poland, Born 1872 #general

Leslie Weinberg <artsoul@...>
 

I am searching for a relative a nephew, of an Abraham REISS, born in Tyczyn,
Poland, living in Nagyvarad, Hungary (Oradea) at the time of the war. His nephew
posted a page of testimony at Yad Vashem, and the nephew's name may be Morris
SOMMERFELD, or Moritz ZOMERFELD. Abraham Reiss appears to have a lot in common
with my late grandfather, Markus (Max) EISEN, born in Tyczyn 1892, came to the
U.S. in 1913. My grandfather was one of four children born to a Chaim (sp?) and
Schewa Eisen in Tyczyn. Haim, however, had been married twice, and these four
children were the progeny of the second marriage. My grandfather visited
Nagyvarad before he came to the U.S. to see a brother >from his father's first
marriage. We don't know his name, but owing to the fact that both came >from
Tyczyn, and that the name of the father of both Abraham and Markus was Chaim,
there may be a connection. The nephew who filled out the page of testimony stated
he was the son of Abraham's sister. We know that there were other siblings >from
the first marriage as well as the second. We also know that my grandfather's
sister Hene "Helen) died during the war in Tyczyn but got her son to Israel in
the 1930s. I'm not sure why the offspring of one marriage might post a page of
testimony for the offspring of a first marriage. but you never know.
After all, my grandfather himself went to visit a half brother. That. actually,
is where he met my grandmother, and followed her to the U.S. Does anyone know of a
Morris Sommerfeld, or some version of that name in Israel, or any children of this
person?

Hessheim Records/Advice? #general

We are searching for information about my great great grandfather, Heinrich
HIRSCHLER, whose date and place of birth in Germany (24 March 1824, in Hessheim)
we know. I have tried by every means (fax and email) to obtain records >from the
town of Hessheim to retrieve his birth certificate, but with no success. Has
anyone got suggestions as to how I might obtain records?

Many thanks

Additions to the Conference program #scandinavia

We have some wonderful news about additions to the Conference program:

Warren Blatt, JewishGen's Vice President and Editor-in-Chief will
represent Jewishgen at the Conference in Jerusalem. Warren's talk is
entitled "JewishGen -- Past, Present and Future" and will focus on all
aspects of Jewishgen databases. His sessions will take one step-by-step
through the process of using JewishGen's internet databases: including
both how to search the databases, and how to add one's own data. We feel
his talk is so important that we have scheduled it for a plenary session
on Tuesday, after the Break-the-Fast dinner at 2100, as well as on
Friday morning, to ensure that Israelis will be able to be present and to
learn >from it.

Yad Vashem has done it again! Miriam Aviezer, an expert on Yugoslavian
Jewry, will be present at Yad Vashem, in the reading room of the library,
on Wednesday between 10:00 and 14:00 to help you with your research
questions. Those of you with Yugoslavian roots, take note!!

Rose Lerer Cohen, co-author of the multi-volume study on the fate of
Lithuanian Jewry, is also generously donating her time to help those of
you with Litvak roots.. You can consult with Rose in the reading room at
Yad Vashem on Tuesday, July 6, between 10:00 and noon.

Those with Hungarian roots will have the good fortune of being helped by
the expert on Hungarian Jewry, Dr. Gavriel Bar Shaked, who will be at Yad
Vashem >from Sunday through Thursday, between 10:00 and 14:00.

In addition to these and other experts and a crew of volunteers who will
be ready to help you at Yad Vashem, we will have representatives >from Yad
Vashem present at the Conference venue to point you in the right
direction before you ever leave the hotel! Be sure that you bring with
you all known details of family members that you believe were murdered in
the Shoah. You will be able to fill out pages of testimony in their
memory, which Yad Vashem representatives will have with them to give you
at the conference. Don't let your relatives remain among the nameless, a
number among the millions killed. Help rekindle their memory by filling
out and handing in the Pages of Testimony so that future generations can
know and honour them as well!

During the evening Event at Yad Vashem on Monday afternoon and evening,
one of the very poignant moments will be when each person goes to the
beautiful Valley of the Lost Communities to locate the stone bearing the
mention of the communities >from which his family came and whose Jewish
population was decimated in World War II. There too, you will have the
opportunity to honour your murdered family members and their community by
remembering them in your own special way in the Valley of the Lost Communities.

And then, as they would have wanted, we will celebrate life in the
evening program at Yad Vashem: Am Yisrael Chai! Make sure you bring a
sweater and warm clothing. Nights are cool in Jerusalem, even in summer.

13CD project birth records and inconsistencies in my research #belarus

Tammy
 

I want to thank all the people involved in translating and posting
the 13 cd project. I FINALLY got a hit! In the most recent update
to these records, I found my grandfather's sister!

Now for the question. According to these records, it says she was
born in the town of Minsk, Uysed Minsk and Gubernia Minsk in 1895.
According to their mother's passport about a decade later, they
were >from Ostroshitsky Gorodok about 30 miles outside of Minsk.
How can I use these records to help me with my search?
Were the birth records generalized in terms of town name?
In other words, would someone >from a town outside of Minsk be listed
as a resident of Minsk according to these birth records?

I have been struggling with the origin of my family for many years.
Interviews with family members led me to believe the family was >from
Dukora (Igumen) but the only evidence of that is that they were members
of the Ducorer Brothers burial society.

If anyone has experience with these sort of inconsistencies in their
research and can guide me down the correct path, I would truly appreciate
it.

Dear Cousins,

The following website (mentioned recently in this forum) has some
interesting information about Jews & the history of their service in the
Russian Army. Go to

http://www.slavweb.com/eng/Russia/history-e.html

& click on History of the Jews.

One of the articles gives the time-line >from when Jews were not expected to
serve in the army to when Jews were required to serve 30 (25?) years (and
how young the kids could be!), and when that law was changed.

One of my Slonimer great uncles served in the Russian army as a tailor, and
was discharged after not a very lengthy term of service. Family lore says
he left (circa 1899) because he was going to be called up again.

Best, Steve Orlen

Hannah LANDAU, daughter of the Rav of Tshermgoff #general

Nick <tulse04-news@...>
 

This announcement appeared in the London Jewish Chronicle of 5 May 1871.

"Hannah LANDAU

Death at 10 Bury Court, St Mary Axe, after an illness of 3 years, beloved
wife of Marcus LANDAU and eldest daughter of the Rav of Tshermgoff (Russia)
aged 35"

Marcus LANDAU was my greatgrandfather. Hannah LANDAU was his first wife.

Tshermgoff is probably Chernigov in present-day Ukraine.

Does anyone know who was the Rav of Tshermgoff?

Does anyone have any connections with either Marcus LANDAU (ne Fredkin, some
say) or Hannah LANDAU (nee ??).

WEINER -- New Jersey #general

laguna@...
 

Dear Genners,

I'm seeking descendants of Harry J. WEINER -- the family lived and/or
worked in the Elizabeth/Linden/Roselle area of New Jersey >from
approximately 1930. Harry J. had offices in Elizabeth and lived in Linden.

Harry J. was a lawyer, married to Mildred. Their children were Lester ,
Edith (aka Elsie?) and Edward. Lester also became a lawyer. Edward
married Polly. Elsie/Edith married Sidney MARGOLIN and moved to Boston
about 1945.

If, as I suspect, we are related, then this family emigrated >from
Belarus (probably Bobruisk).

Please respond privately.
