Re: David GREIMANN, Chicago 1906 #germany

If David GREIMANN and his wife were
about the same age you will probably be able to find them in the "SSDI"
(Social Security Death Index) which is available in many places on the
Internet.
Unless the GREIMANNs lived to a ripe old age, it is unlikely to find
them in the SSDI. The earliest deaths I have seen listed were in the
1960's, when the couple would probably be in their 80s.

Another useful way to approach this is to have someone look the
GREIMANNs up in the 1910, 1920 and 1930 censuses or seek out
obituaries in the mainstream and Jewish press.

BERNSTEIN-LERNER Marriage #rabbinic

Anita Springer <aspringer@...>
 

Our LERNER family in the Ukraine was a family of rabbis. They
come >from the area around Kamenets-Podolsk, but were rabbis in
many different towns, some in Galicia and Bessarabia as well. I
believe that one of the LERNER daughters married a Rabbi BERNSTEIN.
Unfortunately I do not know their names. This would have been in
the late 1800s or early 1900s, before 1920. Say between 1880-1920.
If anyone has any information about a BERNSTEIN - LERNER
relationship, I would be very interested.

New on Keidan list #lithuania

Harold Wyzansky <wyzansky@...>
 

Hello,

I just signed up for the Keidan mailing list. My connection to Keidan is
that my great-grandfather Aryeh (ben Israel) STEINBERG lived there with his
wife Mina (bas Kadish) (nee MINTZ). I found them on the 1874 revision list
on the ALD on Jewishgen. They had five children - three daughters who came
to Boston, Massachusetts (Rochel Dina (married Joseph STEINBERG), Beilah
(Bessie) (married Hyman WYZANSKY) (my grandparents), and Sarah (married
Harry LEVEN)), and two sons (Joseph Meyer who went to South Africa and
Israel Kadish about whom I know nothing except that I found him in the ALD
in 1894 living with his wife and year-old-daughter Devorah in Janova.)

Aryeh died in Europe (unfortunately he is not in the list >from the Kedainiai
cemetery) and Mina came to Boston as a widow in 1906 and then moved to
Palestine where she passed away in Jerusalem in 1926 at the age of 90.

I am glad to be on the list. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone?

They lived in Hohensalza, Czarnikau, Kurnik and Rawitsch.

Rabbi Joske SPIRO was married to Zirl BLASCHKE, hence all his
descendants are likewise BLASCHKE descendants.

Post-war polish Marriage certificate etc #poland

Marcus Byruck <byruckfam@...>
 

Am inquiring on behalf of a cousin who was born to survivors, in Poland,
1948, left 1950 for Israel, subsequently moved to and citizen of U.S.
Parents no longer alive. He would like obtain his parents marriage
certificate (Lodz, 1946/1947) and hence mother's maiden name.
Also, he would like a copy of his own birth certificate.

Anyone with similar experience?

Would it be most efficient to go through Polish Embassy in U.S. Or Polish
Archives in Lodz?

Thanks
