Searching for David son of and Sarah daughter of Gittle ABRAMOWITZ #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I would like to know the where abouts of the descendants of my great
great grandmother's two children.

My gggrandmother, Gittle ABRAMOWITZ left Europe (Novarodok) as a
widow with 4 youngish children. David, Sarah, Mayer and Kalman. As
far as I know (I have heard different variations) she came to the USA
probably around 1870-80 via Liverpool to New Haven, Ct. At some point
along the way she remarried a LAZAROFF. The children retained the
ABRAMOWITZ name.

It seems that David went to Boston to seek his fortune and according
to family lore, he started working in a dept. store and eventually
rose to management (ownership?). In the 1930s my grandfather tried to
look him up but was told that he was in his Florida residence. There
is a rumor that he changed his family name.

His sister Sarah, (I don't know her married name) lived (or
vacationed) in the 1930s in Coney Island, NY. My mother met her then
when she lived in NYC. All my mother wrote about her great aunt Sarah
is that she and her husband were members of a Yiddish language
literary club ( and/or the "Bund") and that they had a grandson Tom
who seems to have been >from Boston but was vacationing in Coney Island
with his grandparents. Tom was my mother's age and it seems that the
families were afraid of a possible courtship (between my mother and
Tom) so Tom was rushed back to Boston.

As a great grandson of Mayer, I am in close contact with his
descendants as well as Kalman's. It seems that these two siblings
remained orthodox and that may be the reason for the disconnection
from David and Sarah.
In today's more "open" Jewish society I would like to reconnect with
the extended family , hoping that their descendants (if I can find
them) are open to such connections.

Happy Yom Yerushalayim and Chag Shavuot Sameach to all

Seeking Malmine GOLDFLEIN - 1847-1920 married ? TAUBENSCHLAG #germany

Dan Oren <doren@...>
 

I am searching for any further information about
Malmine (GOLDFLEIN) TAUBENSCHLAG, 1847-1920 and her husband whose
given name is unknown to me.

I found a photo of her tombstone in a family file, so I assume she
is a relative of the TAUBENSCHLAGs in my family, but I know nothing
else. Does either name ring a bell?

Thank you. Dan Oren, Woodbridge, Connecticut doren@aya.yale.edu

Midwives in Vienna - who paid them? #austria-czech

Odeda Zlotnick
 

My maternal GGGM Gittel (Agathe) BLASS born BOTTWIN-MELLER was a midwife
in Vienna. It's written on her gravestone, and on her death
registration, in the Vienna Address Book - and on some of her
grandchildren's birth registrations and announcements.

Who paid the midwives? Was it purely personal? Were they functionaries
of congregation - and if they were, would I find them the list of people
paid by the congregation?

Thank you

Seeking Information About Sarah ZINKER and Possible Siblings #austria-czech

Joyce Eastman
 

I recently received information >from a contact that my paternal grandmother
(Sime Bruche HELFER - also known as Sime Bruche ZINKER/ZINKOWER and Bertha
WILDER) may have had a sister named Sarah ZINKER who was married to Samuel
Gruber in Manchester, England, and I am trying to find out more information
about these two individuals and their family, as well as any more
information that might be available about her siblings. The parents of both
Sime Bruche HELFER (b. 1880) and Sarah ZINKER (b. abt. 1873) were Judith
HELFER and Aron ZINKOWER/ZINKER - all >from Brody, Poland (now Ukraine).

I should note that my grandmother emigrated >from Brody, Poland with her
husband (Salomon Wolf WILDER) and children to Vienna, Austria in 1914. From
there she was deported and killed by the Nazis in 1942. I previously posted
a family picture on JewishGen's Viewmate, without any results.

I have been researching this family for quite some time, and until now have
not been able to find any possible information regarding my paternal
grandmother's siblings. My ultimate goal is to locate any living relatives
of my paternal grandmother.

If anyone has more information regarding Sarah ZINKER or other possible
siblings of my grandmother, please contact me privately.

The Danube Exodus #hungary

mvered10@...
 

'The Danube Exodus' is a 60 minutes long film by Hungarian film maker
Peter Forgacs. It tells the story pf several hundred Slovak Jewish
refugees sailing down the Danube, >from Bratislava to the Black Sea on
a couple of river boats, July 1st to August 31, 1939 . The film is
partly based on 8mm films taken by the captain of 'Queen Elizabeth',
one of those boats.
My grandmother and three of her children (an aunt and two uncles of
mine) sailed on the 'Czar Dushan', the second of those boats. My aunt,
21 years old at the time, described the whole trip in a personal
diary, a copy of which I have (in Hungarian, translated by me into
Hebrew).
I would like very much to view this film, but could not find a usable
copy. Can anybody help ?
