Newland (Levi) of London #unitedkingdom

Sylvia Kaye <sylk@...>
 

Dear Friends,
I am searching for my British cousins; last contact was in the 1940s.

Doris, the daughter of Laura Hilsenrath and Joseph Erlich, married Benjamin
Newland (b. ~1890; original name said to be Levi); they had 4 children:
Annette, Joyce, Lawrence (b. 1926) and Cyril. During the late 1930s, the
mailing address of Benjamin Newland was on Morresby rd. in Clapton (I am not
sure if this was the family's home address or Benjamin's place of business).
Doris had at least the following siblings: Morris, Rose, Anita (married Mr.
Nash), Sophie (d. 1930), Minnie, and Winnie (Married Sam Cooper).

Any help would be much appreciated.

Jewish Community of Scotland #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

There are many allusions in literature to the possibilities that Jews
traded with the British Isles even during the times of King Solomon.
There are even mentions that Jews fled there after the second fall of
Temple. As to whether any settled there is not known as there are no
extant records of such.

During the Roman Empire, there is mention of Jews who were part of the
entourage that accompanied the Roman Army when it came to Great Britain.
These would have been traders and/or suppliers or artisans, perhaps, who
scattered throughout the country in the areas of Roman settlement. They
would not really have been a known "community" as such. For instance,
there are traditions of Jews being involved in the nascent tin mining
industry in Cornwall and other places.

As to whether any of these went into what is Scotland today, I do not know
as I have not really seen any reference to this in the histories I am
familiar with.

Searching GOLD (PA, USA), PASKOW (NJ, USA) #general

"ארנון הרשקוביץ <arnonh@...>
 

Hello, All!

I've only heard about those new cousins of my late grandfather for the
first time about a month ago, and now I've found some letters they sent to
him >from the USA during the 1970s, 1980s. (They even met him in a visit to
Israel!!!)

Miriam LIBMAN (nee: BROMBERG) is my g-grandmother. At lease after her
marriage, they lived in Krasilov, Ukraine. I don't know where the BROMBERGs
are originally.

Miriam had a sister, Ethel (marriage name: PASKOW), children of whom
arrived to the USA:

* Ida PASKOW, married Samuel GOLD
They lived in Allentown, PA in the 1970s, 1980s.
In a letter >from 1976, they tell about 2 married sons they have and 4
grandchildren (ages 8, 10, 12, 14 y/o - one boy and 3 girls).

* Abraham H. PASKOW, married Betty
They lived in North Hollywood, CA, in the 1970s.

In one letter it's written that there were one more brother and one mroe
sister to Ida and Abraham, who live in the USA.

According to my search in the SSDI, both the GOLDs and the PASKOWs
mentioned above died during the last years, but my senses say that their
descendants are still alive somewhere, and it is extremely important to
find them!

I've looked for their obits, but didn't find them (although an obit for a
suitable Betty appears in the GenObit, I couldn't find it in the newspaper
archives).

Any help in locating their descendants will be tremendous and will be
considered as my *biggest discovery* in my whole research!!!

Re: Yad Vashem Database online in June #general

Sara Wenger <sara_wenger@...>
 

The Hall of Names at Yad Vashem has spent years and
millions of dollars converting 3 million 'pages of
testimony' into an online database. The online site
will be launced in June or in the summer sometime.
This was written up about a month ago in the Jerusalem
post and Haaretz online. The search has advanced
options allowing you to search all different fields
that were entered >from the original forms. ie. search
by: "last name", "maiden name", "born in...",
"birthdate", "submitted by", etc. As well as a
combination of any of the above. When you do find an
entry that interests you, you click on the record and
it shows you the original form that was scanned in.

I have spent a fair amount of time using this resource
at YadVashem. It will be phenomenal when it is
available on the internet.

This is a tremendous resource. I have already found
relatives >from my father's family who survived the
holocaust by finding pages of testimony that were
entered.

Re: Yad Vashem site (victims of the Shoah) #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

Robert A. Dodel asked :

"[...] Yad Vashem will have a site on the Internet listing victims of
the Shoah. Supposed to be up and running in Jule 2004. Can anyone
confirm this ?"

I asked Yad Vashem a question last August (three months ago), and
they answered "About the database of all the names we have
computerized, about three million, we'are working on preparing it to
be accessable on the Internet, and hopefully, il will be open
sometime next year".
