[ long story about relatives who came to the US in the 1920's but have had
no contact since 1937 ]

It would be very intereting to find the descendants of this family.
Please let me know if you have any information that could help.
I would appreciate any hints on how I may proceed in searching them.
Thank you very much,
Galina,

Tracing forward in time to find descendents can be difficult because people
move >from one place to another and change their names. Here are a few
suggestions on how you might trace your relatives, in no particular order.

* Contact all the researchers listed on JGFF >from your towns of interest,
Medzhibozh and Starokonstantinov, and tell them your story. Make a list of
all the surnames associated with those towns and show them to your
grandmother to see if she can remember the surname of your relatives.

* Register your names on JGFF.

* Search the JGen message archives and the entire web for your surnames and
towns. Also search the entire JGen web site.

* Search through the city directories for Brooklyn and the rest of New York
City for the 1920's and later looking for your furrier and physician. City
directories of that era have people listed by surname like a white pages
directory of today. In the back they list people by business. If you show
the list of all furriers in Brooklyn in 1930 to your grandmother perhaps
she will remember the surname.

* If the Stephen Morse one step search web page ever comes back you should
search for all people who came to the US >from Starokonstantinov.

* Your surname of interest, Beygeldrut, is uncommon. Contact anyone who
has that surname. If you can find anyone with that surname in the city
directories for NY then look them up in the census. There could be other
relatives that you and your grandmother don't know about but who lived in
the US and who your target relatives lived with.

* Go to the nyjgs web site and look up all the cemeteries that have burial
societies for your towns of interest. You could phone them and ask if
there is someone matching your story buried in the burial plots for those
societies.

http://www.nyjgs.org/

* There should be a way to search for medical doctors >from that era in NYC,
besides the city directories, but I don't know what it is. If someone else
knows how please let us know.

You have your work cut out for you.

Good luck,

9/11 Jewish Victims List #general

Lynne Shapiro <lynneshap@...>
 

This would be a worthwhile project, to both honor those lost and to in
some small way counter the notion in large segments of the Arab world
that Jews somehow knew of the event in advance and did not go into work
at the World Trade Center that day. But there are already lists of
victims, which of course do not specify religion. How would we know
which of the victims were Jewish? Would it be a list based on
submissions of family members? That would probably not be very complete,
because only a certain segment of the population would submit names.
Also, for the list to be most useful genealogically, it would have to
contain additional information, such as the date of birth and parents'
names of the victims. People might understandably feel reluctant to give
this information to an instantly accessible list, since it could invade
their privacy. Does anyone see a way around these issues?

Between about 1800 and WWI there was no Poland. It was partitioned between
Russia, Prussia, and Austria. There was a Kingdom of Poland which was part
of Russia in the 1840-1900 period you are talking about. So your ancestor
was >from Polish Russia or Russian Poland or Russia or Poland.

Posen was in Prussia and on the census, they apparently claimed Germany-it
would have been Prussia in the 1840's as Germany was formed in 1871.

A cousin of mine came >from Augustow, Poland (then Russia) but he was born in
Marseilles, France! Such things happened. Perhaps your family moved, or
fled as this cousin's family->from famine, cholera, and rebellion.

Vilna Rabbi in mid-18th Century #rabbinic

LJA022864@...
 

I am trying to find information on my great great great grandfather
who was supposedly a somewhat famous rabbi in Vilna in the 1800s.
My great great grandmother Fannie RAPHAELSON was raised by the rabbi
and his wife (Cune??). Fannie was born in 1854 in Russia (Vilna?)
and moved to New York City. She was married to a Velval or William?
RAPHAELSON who died before 1920. They had 5 children - Lena
RAPHAELSON BYKOWSKY (1877 born in Russia/Vilna and died in 1963)of
NYC, Dr. Samuel J. RAPHAELSON of NYC, Jeannette (Jenny) RAPHAELSON
of NYC, Mollie RAPHAELSON of NYC and Ralph RAPHAELSON (born in 1875
in Russia/Vilna).

When Fannie's grandfather died she went back to Vilna for the
funeral, sold his house and brought back to the US some of his
things. Any information anyone may have would be very useful.
Thank you!

Aderet's Son Refael-Levi #rabbinic

M. Ronn
 

B"H

A gut moyed!

I am seeking information about Refael-Levi RABINOVITZ, the son of
the Aderet (Rabbi Eliyahu David RABINOVITZ-TEUMIM). The Aderet was
the father-in-law of Rabbi Kook; hence, Perets RABINOVITZ was Rabbi
Kook's brother-in-law. I looked in "Seder Eliyahu," which is the
autobiography of the Aderet, but to no avail.

I am looking for the following (with sources as possible):

1) Confirmation (if possible) that Refael-Levi and his mother were
in Kfar-Saba during World War I
2) The dates and places of death of Refael-Levi and his mother.

Yours truly,
