Amsterdam as a sourse of genealogical information #belarus

Michael Kaplan <Michael-kaplan@...>
 

Some time ago I came to believe that there is some kind of archive in
Amsterdam that might be helpful to me in finding my European ancestors, who
were >from Lithuania (Ramygala), eastern Poland (Bialystok), and Belarus
(Brest, Divin).

That was years ago, when I didn't keep very good notes (I hope I am doing
better now!).

Anyway, I will probably be in Amsterdam this fall, and I don't remember why
I thought that there were possibly useful archives in that city.

Can anybody point me in the right direction?

TALALAY-TALALAI DNA Project #belarus

Schelly Dardashti <dardasht@...>
 

Dear Genners,
TALALAY-TALALAI research has made the leap into the 21st century.
from handwritten charts to very elementary DOS genealogy software to the
latest version with all the bells and whistles, >from old-fashioned
hand-written letters to e-mail, we've now crossed into the
next-to-final-frontier: DNA testing.
The next stage, I'm sure, will be time travel, when we can go back and ask,
in person, our gggggfather those hard questions we've been saving up!
So, please note that as of yesterday, we are listed on
www.familytreedna.com.

TALALAY-TALALAI family members worldwide are being sought to participate in
a DNA study to confirm the common origin of all branches of our very rare
name. Some US branches changed to TOLLIN, TALLIN, TOLL, TALL, TAYLOR, some
in the US, Canada, UK retained TALALAY. If you know that your original name
is TALALAY with Eastern European or any origins, please participate. We are
especially interested in finding the four brothers who changed to FEINSTEIN
in Philadelphia, as well as worldwide TALAYA or TALALLA of Spanish origin,
and TALLEBAIE anywhere.
Contact Schelly Talalay Dardashti, <dardasht@barak-online.net> for more
information.

Thanks to everyone for their assistance, as usual.

Monty, are you looking for records of the Keidaner Sick Benefit and
Benevolent Society in Johannesburg? I have a photocopy of their 50th
Anniversary program >from 1950, which contains many articles in English and
Yiddish about the organization. A couple of those articles are already on
the website, and I can make you a copy if you don't already have it.

R. Shmuel Hakatan MOED's spouse's ancestors #rabbinic

hennynow
 

I apologize for sending incorrect information yesterday. Please
note the revised genealogical data below.

My gggrandfather Rabbi Shmuel Hakatan MOED's wife was Necha, but I
don't know what her family background was. Many of the women in my
family in later years were named Necha to commemorate her.

R. Shmuel Hakatan MOED's sons were R. Yehuda Leib MOED, Kasriel
MOED, and R. Meshulam Paltiel MOED, who married Sara Miriam,
daughter of Rav Gedalia of Adelsk next to Hordana.

R. Meshulam and Sara Miriam's son was R. Nachman Gedalia BRODER who
moved to Palestine in the late 19th century and is the progenitor of
the branches of Israeli BRODER / MOED / LOMSKOMSKI relatives.

Sorry I goofed....

Edmond de Leeuw born Jan.21-1912 Enschede Holland, died in holocaust,
Mauthausen Jul-17-1942
and his wife Boena de Beer, born Sept-12-1913 Enschede Holland, died in
holocaust Auschwitz Nov-19-1943.

They married Jan-18-1935 Enschede Holland.
The Dutch database GenLias (www.genlias.nl) lists 1 couple de Beer in
Enschede:
Date: 7 Sep 1910 (cert#231)
Groom: Levie de Beer Birthplace: Borne
Bride: Roosje Cohen Birthplace: Dalen
Father of the groom: Abraham de Beer
Mother of the groom: Hendrika Meijer
Father of the bride: Hartog Josua Cohen
Mother of the bride: Boena Zilverberg
Other info: groom: 24 yr; bride: 22 yr.

In view of the name of the bride's mother, this seems to me the parents
of Boena de Beer.

There are too many de Leeuw's unfortunately. The database goes no later
than 1912

Levie's parents marry in Oude Pekela:

Father of the groom: Benjamin de Beer
Mother of the groom: Dina Suskind

Mother of the bride: Roosje Hartogs de Levie
Other info: groom: 25 jaar; bride: 29 jaar

Hartog (29 yrs, born in Coevorden) and Boena (26 yr, born in Dalen)
marry Dalen on 8 Jun 1883 (cert#23), parents Josua Cohen and Roosje
Hedeman, and Heiman Zilverberg and Sara Mozes Cohen. He is 29, she is 26

Benjamin (24 yrs old, born in Delden) and Dina (27 yr old, born in
Denekamp) marry in Borne 12 Feb 1850 (Cert# 2), parents: Levie Benjamin

He was 24, she was 27

Possibly there is more, the database goes >from 1811-1912, and contains
