Yoel GINSBERG #poland

Perets Mett <p.mettXXX@...>
 

I am seeking more information about my GINSBERG ancestors. GINSBERG is a
well-established family name and I would like to find out how 'my' GINSBERGs
were descended >from documented family members.

The earliest antecedent I have located is Joel GINSBERG (married to Gitl)
who lived in the mid- or late 1700s.

Their son Fiszl GINSBERG lived in Staszow where he died aged 61 in Feb 1847.
(Staszow register of deaths 1847, Akt 27)

Fiszl had a son Rabbi Yosef Nechemia who lived in Staszow.

Any assistance with identifying Joel GINSBERG would be appreciated.

Do any of these names sound familiar? I'm thinking perhaps
it's the name of a shtetl. I found this name associated with
a passenger manifest. I'm trying to find out where this is.

Where is Bodendor? #general

Dear Group--
I've just come across an obituary >from a 1903 Pittsburgh, PA
Jewish Publication for my husbands ggf Isaac Friedsam. It
states that he came >from "Bodendor, Rhine, Prussia in 1853."
I've looked at Shtelt Seeker and have too many choices, towns
in Austria, Czech Republic and Germany. While I believe the
town to be in present day Germany, I really have no idea what
to assume. Can any one narrow the list down for me and point
me toward the correct area?

Thanks so much. *And,* best wishes for a healthy, happy and
peaceful 2003~

Immigration to Bangor Maine #lithuania

I too have family that immigrated to Bangor Maine. The family name is PEPPER.

I always thought they were >from Vilnius until I found pgm's entry on the
EIDB. Ruchel arrived in NYC in 1912 with her 5 children: Dawid, Chaia,
Mariann, Shmuel, and Arie. She listed them as coming >from Lutsk with the
last name of PFEFFER. Their final destination was Bangor Maine where they
were reuinted with her husband, my pgf, Hesh Wolf. I have been unable to
trace his entry. I have heard he was a butcher.

My father, Itsak (Arthur) PEPPER was born in Bangor in 1915. I also know that there were other PEPPER relatives in Bangor as well. I have also found a Bessie PEPPER who arrived in NYC in 1910 with a final destination of Bangor.

Other relatives for settled in Memphis Tenn, Glouster Mass, Denver, and
Montreal Canada. I believe my Canadian cousins last name was ROSEN.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Depending on the Chassidim, this is indeed the case.

Individually, a person did a "soul-quest," to see whom his soul was
attached to. This was especially the case if his Rebbe died. So
then, being a Chassid, you have to have a Rebbe! And off he would
go to attach himself to a Tzaddik. (A fundamental principle of the
Baal Shem Tov's teachings, that only through a Tzaddik, are we each
able to perfect ourselves and fulfill our true destiny on this
Earth...)

Only two kinds of Chassidus, demanded work (Avoda) in addition to
this attachment and these are Chabad and Breslov.

So, even if the person is not in close physical proximity to his
Rebbe, still through learning and living his teachings (called
Chassidus), a bond is formed which spans worlds and distances...

The Chabad and Breslov Chassidim were the exceptions to the above
"soul quest" rule. This is because, according to other types of
Chassidim, the way you attach to the Tzaddik is through physically
going to your Rebbe and being by his tish.

Hope this is helpful,

If anyone has any information regarding this family, please share it

in R' Wunder's Meorei Galacia of two LITVIN daughters, one who "went
to Tarnov in the end of 1884" and another who married the grandson
of the ABD of Vitebsk. Any information will be appreciated.

In Feb, 1948 an elderly Jewish man, Daniel Schaff, is believed
to have died in Gary, Indiana, where he had lived for at least
18 years. Where is he likely to have been buried? I do not see
a Jewish cemetery listed for Gary. Would the most likely place
be Chicago? If not, where?
