Israeli Look-Up #general

Steve Orlen <sorlen@...>
 

Would anyone kindly look up the email, or regular mail address of
Ephraim & Ruth KAUSHANSKY. They live in Timrat, southeast of Haifa.
I've just found out that Ruth is a cousin of mine, on the
WOLINS/WOLINSKY side of my family.

please respond privately

No Words to Describe #general

David Simon Bendory <david90@...>
 

Tens of people responded to my earlier story of my GGM's siddur, trapped in
the wreckage of the World Trade Center. Several encouraged me to have faith:
after surviving pogroms in Hungary, the journey to America, and 3
generations of my family, the siddur would surely survive this calamity as
well.

Well, it seems that the presence of my siddur saved One Liberty Plaza, which
is not only standing but also structurally sound -- in spite of earlier
reports of its collapse.

As to my siddur, it has been retrieved and is safely in the hands of a
friend who will personally deliver it to me tonight in time for Rosh
HaShannah.

Earlier, I said that I have no words to describe the catastrophe >from which
I narrowly escaped. I now have no words to describe the miracle which has
emerged >from that same catastrophe.

God willing, there are more miracles to come, in the form of survivors who
emerge >from the debris.

Shanah tovah,

Marvin, I think your message was mis-directed to me.

Thanks.

Dear Ms. Gottlieb:

I just picked up your message over the Latvia SIG. My father (Simon),
grandfather and ggrandfather lived in Dankere. They emigrated to America in
1902, and shortened their name >from Leibowitz to Lebow. I don't know of any
relationship to the Danker family. However, I did correspond briefly with a
woman named Annette Danker Steiner in Florida (also >from Dankere). Are you
related to her?

Regarding sources of information. You might try writing the Latvian State
Historical Archives in Riga. They would do a little research your family in
Dankere and possibly find some ancestral links. I had a search done for my
family, and while they found a little information it was not enough to extend
my family tree significantly.

Also, there are a couple of private researchers listed on the JewishGen. One
of them is actually distantly related to me. But, I would try the State
Archives first. They have access to any old records that still exist, and
they are cheaper than the private researchers.

It is always a surprise and pleasure to meet someone new >from Dankere.

Sincrely,

Vidzy passengers from the EIDB #lithuania

Batya Olsen <batya@...>
 

Shalom,

Having made good use of the Morse/Tobias search engine, I have an
Excel file of 290 passengers whose residence was listed as either
Wids, Widse, Widsi, Widsy, Widz, Widze, Widzey, Widzi, Widzy, Wits,
Witz, Witze, Witzia, Witzk, or Witzki on the Ellis Island Data Base.
There were no listings spelled with a "V." Vidzy was part of Vilna
Gubernia until the creation of Kovno Gubernia and is now in Belarus.
I'll be glad to send this file to anyone who is interested in it.

(Oddly, my family - and many others I am sure - is not listed here as
they simply indicated Russia, or Kovno, or Vilna.)

Someone had written to me by the name of Cole or who was looking for Cole
and I can't remember who it was. In any event, I found three Cole burials
at the Mt. Nebo Cemetery in Miami, FL.

If this is of interest to someone, please contact me for further info.

I am researching my grandfather Percy Solomon. He was born in Cape Town
South Africa and served in the South African Army in WW I. He then worked
for the General Post Office in the area of telecommunications with them in
Cape Town. In the mid 1950's he and his family moved to England. Could
anyone knowing anything about the name Solomon or the Solomon family in Cape
Town please contact me.
Thank you.

Re: You Hit the buildings etc. #galicia

Plutsk@...
 

I suggest that the chest-beating nationalistic fervor be concentrated in some
other venue. Does the author really think any terrorist monitors the Galicia
SIG List? No? Then whom does he think it is that will read his
testosteronic rant?

Re: patriotic message #galicia

M. Thornhill or Jeff or Ari Greif <thornhillgreif@...>
 

Do others agree that perhaps patriotic messages (as contrasted with
condolences >from abroad) are best left to private email? I, for one, did
not have the same reaction to this message that the sender did--I felt
that it contained something like an endorsement of the use of atomic
bombs in the current situation, as well as at Hiroshima.
Some of us are sitting home tonight, trying not to imagine the horror
that would unfold in the Middle East if the USA decides to annihilate
Afghanistan. Or some other Arab country. Or several.
