Dr Dawid LIPPMAN #general

Israel P <isai8v10@...>
 

I am trying to find out what happened to Dr Dawid LIPPMAN(parents were
Salomon and Gusta) who survived the Holocaust and lived subsequently in
Gdansk. I also wish to find out more specifics about his parents -
particularly his mother.

I will check yad VaShem soon, but in the meantime I submitted a question
at the US Holocaust Museum. They told me that I am not authorized to ask
questions.
Perhaps someone who is would submit that question for me.

Thank you.

KLEINERT New York #general

Alice Josephs
 

I have just received a lead on my family which I hope will lead
somewhere.

An elderly relative by marriage remembers that a cousin of my great
grandmother called Klara OPPENHEIMER, born HERZ, >from Baden
Wuerttemberg, Germany had relatives who were the KLEINERT family of New
York.

This KLEINERT family (the name the elderly relative came up with was Ira
KLEINERT, but she isn't sure about the first name) ran a well-known
company which manufactured babies' rubber pants. After doing a quick
search on the internet, I think they were at one time a rival to Playtex
and may be one and the same company with KLEINERT'S Inc which recently,
as far as I can ascertain, filed for bankruptcy.

Does anybody know this KLEINERT family? The elderly relative says they
acted as sponsors for Klara born HERZ and her husband Bernhard
OPPENHEIMER to come to New York in the 1940s. This makes me suspect that
the connection is through Anna HERZ (born 1865), Klara's sister and the
only sibling of that family I have been unable to trace. I know that
Anna did emigrate to New York, possibly in the 1880s. However it may, of
course, be another connection.

Hi,

I've posted five more family photos with Yiddish inscriptions on

sure which.

Montevideo and the PORTNOY family >from Pinsk and Israel.

COHEN/KAHAN/KAGAN-Rouxville #southafrica

SANDI ROOT
 

I have recently learned the occupation of the COHEN/KAHAN/KAGAN
brothers I search. Evidently they owned department stores,
possibly in the vicinity of Rouxville, Orange Free State. One
of the brothers is Malech, and his wife is Rose. The name of
the other brother is unknown to me. Both came >from Kovno,
Lithuania, possibly either Raseiniai or Kurshan. They could have
branched their business out to other cities, like Bloemfontein,
Durban, or Johannesburg.

I can only hope someone out there remembers a connection
between department stores and COHEN/KAHAN/KAGAN.

<< I recently learned that my MELTSNER family immigrated to Kirovohrad and
Nova

Praha >from Lithuania around 1914. Does anyone have any information /

contacts regrading these two Ukrainian locations?>>

According to my 1968 Columbia-Lippincott Gazetteer, in 1939, Kirovograd had a
population of 100,000. It is located in the Kirovograd oblast, 150 miles
southeast of Kiev. It was a metal works center, where people also did
grain-trading and made agricultural machinery. They manufactured clothing, did flour
milling, distilling, and made things >from hemp. The city was founded in 1754 as a
fortress. It was called Yelizavetgrad to honor the empress Elizbeth Petrovna.
It developed institutes for agricultural machinery and pedagogy. The city
experienced pogroms in 1881, 1905, and 1919. Im 1924, it was renamed Zinovyevsk
1924 [no doubt after Grigori Evseevich Zinoviev, a close associate of Lenin.
Zinoviev, of Jewish orgin, fell into disrepute under the Stalinist regime, and
was ultimately executed for treason in 1936.] In 1936 the city was called
Kirovo and named Kirovograd in 1936. During WWII it was held by the Germans.

I could not find a C-L entry for a place called Nova Praha, but the
gazetteer does have an entry for a Novaya Praga, which is in the Kirovograd oblast, 29
miles east of Kirovograd. In 1926 it had a population of 13,096. amd the town
was known for flourmilling. I did find an entry for "Novi Praga" (Novaya
Praga, in Chester G. Cohen's Shtetl Finder Gazetteer which said only that it is
southeast of Kiev and east of Yelisavetgrad (Kirovograd) and that the newpaper
Hamelitz had published an item by D. Levi Epshtein in Novi Praga.

Rabbi Saydman may be able to find more about Kirovograd and Novaya Praga by
using the "search this website" box at Jewishgen's main page
(www.jewishgen.org) and by searching for the city and town using the google search engine at
www.google.com

I have no contacts to suggest nor am I personally interested in these places.
But the Rabbi should try searching through Jewishgen's Discussion group
archives, and also through the message archives of Jewishgen's Special Interest
Groups (SIGs).

in the early 1920's and the family (wife Mary,

grandmother resetteled in Chicago. Family lore says
David owned a large department store in Kerch before
the revolution.

Have very little information on the Bakshy family and
