What is the Louis Brandeis Society? I am a student at Brandeis University,
that is why I am curious.

Searching: Techner, Tochman, Tuchman, Tachman #general

Drew A. Techner <user102000@...>
 

My great-grandparents were Moishe (Moshe, Morris) TOCHMAN and Yetta (Ida)
TARTAEKOVSKY (Tartakovsky)of Kishinev. Moishe Tuchman died between 1903
and 1905 in Kishinev at the age of 35 of "an appendix burst." He was a
businessman. Yetta's surname is also listed as BATOFF. She was born July
12, 1870 in Kishineff and died March 1945 in Philadelphia.

Their son Srul TOCHMAN (Israel TECHNER) came to the United States January
10, 1912 on the steamship Blucher (Hamburg Line) at the Port of New York
and resided in Columbus, Ohio for seven years. In March 1919, he went to
Philadelphia. His brother Mendel and sister Mollie also came to the United
States and settled in Philadelphia.

Before coming to the United States, my grandfather lived in Argentina for
two years after 1905. I believe he may have lived with cousins there.

Drew A. Techner

I believe TOCHMAN is closely related to the TACHMAN and TUCHMAN
surnames.

lookup in NYC directory #general

Gene and Ellen Sucov <genellen@...>
 

Can a kind person with access to the NYC directory for 1920 look up the
following address in Manhattan? 348 Madison St.
This is the address both of my parents gave when they were married in June
1920. My guess is that this was the address of the marriage hall, but I may
be wrong.
Thank you in advance. Gene Sucov

Social Security (SS5) #general

David Edelman <pappapeach@...>
 

Dear All;
When I sent for my grandparents SS5, it took two months just to cash
the check. Once cashed, the applications showed up in a couple days.
When I sent for my wife's, it took only one month.
This in the day of high speed computers.
But, that is not the point of my writing. What we received are copies
of copes, two of which are so compleatly unreadable as to be compleatly
useless.
I would not mind waiting two months, if I knew that was how long it
would take; but why wait, even two days, for something you cannot even
use???

MINCER & CYTRYN Families of Tomaszow Lubelski #general

sborsook <sborsook@...>
 

I am looking for any information relating to the Shalom Mincer and
Cytryn (or Cytron or Sitreen) families who lived in Tomaszow Lubelski,
Poland.

I believe the descendants of Shalom Mincer went to Israel after WW 2
It is known that Wolf Mincer died in Haifa in circa 1996 and his wife
Zipora (nee Zidal) died in Haifa in 1968.

I understand that the children of Wolf Mincer were

Toba Mincer married to Nathan Grenner
Hana or Chana Mincer married to ? Ashkenazi
Dora Mincer.

I understand that Rachel Mincer ( Wolf Mincer's sister) was married to
Abram Cytryn and their children were:

Hersh Cytryn
Sara Cytryn
Chana Cytryn
Shalom Cytryn

Pearl Cytryn could be the daughter of either Hersh or Shalom?

I understand that the descendants of the Cytryn family might be living
in Williamsburg New York and may have been in contact with Pearl Shapiro
(nee Mincer) and or Jack Mincer who were living in South Africa at the
time of their deaths.

Re: encyclopedias #general

Why bother everyone with questions that are easily answered by
other means?
This point is not without merit. Many of the questions posted on JewishGen can
indeed be easily answered by other means, but sometimes one can obtain odd
bits of information >from individuals that aren't necessarily in the books, and
sometimes those odd bits of info. will lead one to probe further, and in turn
learn useful things that one didn't set out to find out about in the first
place! Sometimes a personal reply as opposed to an answer in a book, etc.,
will contain some comment about personal experience, perhaps even personal
contact with the individual one is enquiring about.

The invention of the printing press was a wonderful development in human
history, but we must also continue to value oral history (in which category I
would include JewishGen postings). Much can be gleaned >from speaking with
people that cannot be found in the printed word.

Genealogical research often takes a lot of detective work, and the more places
one looks for answers, the better.
