Heree are my family details:

FISH, lived in Salford, originally >from somewhere in Galicia, I wish I knew
where.
Somehow related to: Knoll and Solomon, who emigrated to the U.S. around the
turn of the century or a little later. Solomon family wound up in Lynn,
Mass.

FLASH, same information

Millie (Malka) Flash b.1872 d.1950
married Harris (Hershel) Fish b.1863 d 1943.
I don't know what year they emigrated, but I suspect either they were
married in England, or their families emigrated together, because Malka's
family lived in Salford also.

They had many children: Joseph (my grandfather), Johnny, Wolfie, Jack,
Barnett, Rebecca and Mendel.

Interestingly, Ann Rabinowitz, of this list, and I figured out that one of
this Fish family, perhaps my grandfather (I've forgotten) dated her mother!

I have been told that Malka's Flash's father name was David, perhaps Moishe
David as her tombstone says that she was the daughter of Reb. Moishe.

David Flash married ? and had Solly, Hennie and Malka.

David's brother Jacob also lived in Salford, married Yetta. They had three
children: Ginnie, Philip Isaac, and Molly.

A branch of the FISH family emigrated to Philadelphia, and I believe that I
have located them, although I can only speculate how they are related at
this point.

I visited Salford 7 years and miraculously connected with Jack's daughter,
(my father's first cousin). At that time I took as much information as I
could, but have no way of going backwards as they were very sketchy on this
information and some of it sounded more like myth!

Glad this list is happening.

Jewish Genealogy Meeting - Essex/East London, UK #unitedkingdom

A J <genealicej@...>
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain (JGSGB) East of London
Group is holding a "Tell Us Your Family History" evening at Ilford
Synagogue, 22 Beehive Lane, Gants Hill, Essex on Tuesday, 27th August at
7.45pm.

We'd love to hear your family history and help break down your brick walls.
Don't worry if you have little knowledge of your family's past. We can help
you research your family tree!

Our special guest is JGSGB member, distinguished left-wing journalist and
trade unionist Francis Beckett who will be telling us about the
extraordinary twists and turns of his own family history.

Francis's father, the late John Beckett, was Labour's youngest-ever MP in
1924 but nine years later abandoned parliamentary politics for the British
Union of Fascists. His name became notorious, mentioned in the same breath
as Oswald Mosley and Nazi broadcaster, William Joyce, also known as 'Lord
Haw Haw'. So why has the son of a Blackshirt joined a Jewish genealogy
society? Come along and find out!

All are welcome to meetings of the JGSGB East of London Group. Entry is £1
for members and £2 for non members including refreshments.

For further information, phone 020 8551 0254, write to PO Box 1441, Ilford,
Essex IG4 5GH, email shirley.collier@... or visit our website at

Re: getting going again #unitedkingdom

Lynn Saul <lynnsaul@...>
 

My family was originally VESHASKY >from Suwalk-Lomza (Sereje) in
Lithuania, and sojourned and/or settled as SAUL in Cwymdare Wales. A
great-uncle is listed on the 1891 Wales census.

I have a photo of his pawnshop and am interested in locating other
records, especially if they might show other family members there.

Jewish home #unitedkingdom

Jack <howdydo@...>
 

Am trying to find information on an Aunt & Uncle.

Fanny SCHILLER nee KOCH and her uusband Alexander SCHILLER were moved from
Vienna to England on 8-8-1938 as part of a group of blind jews.

They worked at an Ice Cream plant.

In 1974, they lived in 4 Worcester House, Halifield House, Paddington.

Alex died in 1975, and Fanny was moved to a Nursing Home in Roekford (I
believe that is the spelling) staffed by German Nurses. She died in 1977 and
I was unable to get any information >from the home. My letters were not
saved.

Does anyone know the name of the Jewish home?

Is anyone able to locate the day and month of their deaths? and burial
location?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

obtaining copies of records #lithuania

I found some records in the All Lithuania database that probably apply to my family. How do I go about getting photocopies of the actual records and English translations?

I'm specifically interested in the May 20 1858 Revision/Family/Census Lists Table and the 1877 Tax Voters Table.

I don't think that Kazimiera is a typical Jewish name. Probably the
grand- aunt of Yaccov's Polish pal was named in honor of one of the
century at least one of them, grand duke Jan Kazimierz, granted a
number
of privileges to the Jews of Minsk. Whether the great aunt was named
Jan Kazimierz was the king of Poland, not a grand duke.

Kazimiera is the Polish female form of Kazimierz (Casimir).

As for Kazimierz, the Jewish district still exists and is slowly being
restored, but already today being a center of commemorating and reviving
century-long Jewish tradition in Poland not only through the aspect of
the Shoah.

Dozens of cafes, Jewish restaurants, museums, synagogues, book shops,
and a lot of people who are sharing this culture - especially during the
yearly Festival of Jewish Culture, with numerous cultural and musical
events taking place e.g. courses of Jewish cooking, Hebrew and Yiddish
lessons, concerts of classic Jewish music. The final concert gathers
always thousands of people - >from Poland and abroad and is a great sign
of tolerance and recognition to the role of the Jewish people in Polish
history.

Best greetings,
