That's probably a second given name (what you spell Berech). It's
generally spelled Baruch in Latin letters and corresponds with the
Latin Benedict.

Further to my lengthy message regarding my gggmt who came to New
Haven >from Novargudok via Liverpool, I recently learned that one of
her sons, Kalman ABRAMOWITZ married an aunt of the leader of Agudat
Yisrael in Israel, Rabbi Menachem PORUSH. I believe the Rabbi's
mother's sister so that I didn't get her family name.

I would be happy to hear >from any descendant of Kalman ABRAMOWITZ
who is a cousin of the Porush family in Jerusalem.

R' Chaim VOLOZHINER #rabbinic

Arnold Davidson <arnoldbd@...>
 

A family tree, written with a pencil in Yiddish cursive script by my
great uncle, has been puzzling the genealogists in the family for
many years. Some relatives claim it is our own family tree but none
of the names occur in our family. I am hoping that someone may
recogniize the family and help determine whether there is any
relationship.

The tree seems to begin with Chaim VOLOZHINER. There is a notation
that Chaim and Nathan were brothers and then it seem to show
descendants of Nathan. I know about Chaim VOLOZHINER but I only
know about 2 brothers, Simcha and Shlomo (no Nathan). According to
my great-uncle's tree, names that appear where one would expect to
childrens names are Hirsch Bear (with a notation that he took his
wife's name of MOVSHELOVICH), Chaim GRENETZ, Chaim NATHANSON, Arye
Leb.

The next generation seems to show only the children of Hirsch Bear.
Namely, Dvora Lea (married R'Nathan), Chaim MOLEKOVSKY (married
Peshe), Rivke (married ABRANOVICH), and two undecipherable children.

In the next generation, these surnames occur: BRUSKER, VOLOZHIN,
LEVIN, MALEKOVSKY, MOVSHOVITZ, SALANT, BUNEMOVICH. Notations
indicate that members of this generation made aliya and the given
names in the next 2 generations suggest that they were Israeli.

There is a notation that Nathan, the son-in-law (?) of Chaim
VOLOZHINER was a cousin of the Vilna Gaon and another notation that
one of chaim MALEKOVSKY's children had some relationship to the
Vilna Gaon.

The two Yiddish notations referring to the Vilna Gaon are on
Viewmate (VM 1863, VM1864).

Is any part of this family familiar to any reader? Does any of this
make sense to any reader? Any assistance would be gratefully
welcomed.

First off, thank you to all who answered my query as to what the name Harry
might have been in Poland/Russia. I received many answers, but none
mentioned the name HERTZKO, which I just found on a ship manifest and
strongly believe that Hertzko is my Harry Fischer. I checked the GNDB and
did not find the name. Do you agree with my thinking that Hertzko = Harry?

I try to always use the Polish spellings. Then I would footnote that the

Dear Coordinators and Translators,

I have a question. In general I am using the spelling of names in the
Brzeziny Yizkor book as they would have been in Poland. However, I have
two cases in which the person has become a more-or-less well-known writer
later, and the spelling has been changed.
