MEERSON in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

Jewishgenners--If you have lived or are living in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
here is your opportunity to do a wonderful mitzvah and bring a new Russian
immigrant together with his family!

I am looking for a woman named Bertha STERNIN MEERSON who lived in
Philadelphia sometime around 1935. Her son was Eugene Meerson, and if he is
still living he may be in his 70's. Bertha did have a brother named Boris,
who changed his name >from STERNIN to STERN.

If you know of this familly please contact me as soon as possible. I
have been lucky enough to find extended family of this new American immigrant,
but would really like to find his aunt's family for him!

Best wishes,

Carol Rombro Rider Baltimore, Maryland USA CRomRider@aol.com

Searching: TZIMMERMAN and TZAHN (Tomaszow Lubelski, Poland) #general

Sandy Lawrence Edry <sle7@...>
 

I am hoping to find any information about my grandparents' family.

Their names were Sender and Bracha TZIMMERMAN or ZIMMERMAN and
they came >from Tomaszow Lubelski in Poland (about 35km >from Lviv).

They left Poland in 1939 and spent the war in Siberia and in Samarkand,
Uzbekistan before returning to Tomaszow right after the war in 1945. They
arrived in Haifa, Israel in 1951. My grandfather died in 1953.

I know that at least one of his brothers (Tzimmerman) ended up in Paris
-- first name is Peretz, I think -- and one brother may have ended up in
Argentina.

Additionaly, I am look for information about anyone else from
Tomaszow Lubelski, esp. anyone who can tell me about the town before the
war. (I am working on having parts of the Yizkor book translated to
English. If anyone has done some work on this please let me know.)

In a message dated 98-11-22 01:15:30 EST, you write:

While extracting an ancestor's birth record >from Ostrow Mazowiecka, his
father's first name is listed as "Exyxm." I have never heard of this name
before. Does this name make sense to anyone or have I misread the
handwriting.

Any ideas are welcome.

Thanks,

It doesn't make sense. My guess would be that the name is "Jeruchim", since
"x" is the Russian equivalent of "ch" (I'm assuming this was a Russian
record).

Zdunska Wola update #poland

Daniel Wagner <Cpwagner@...>
 

I am pleased to announce that the last corrections for Zdunska Wola
have (finally) been Emailed to Hadassah Lipsius. The vital data
should appear on the REIPP database in the near future. Sorry for the
delay, last 6 months have been hectic, both privately and
professionally.

Again, a warm thanks to all the volunteers.

Caecilie KLEIN/Isaac BLUMBERG - NY? #general

Irene Newhouse <newhoir@...>
 

My distant aunt Caecilie KLEIN [19 Sep 1886, Baden] married Isaac BLUMBERG
[24 Aug 1888] in Vienna, where her family lived [her mother must have gone
to a spa during her pregnancy]. One of their nephews told his daughter
that Dr. BLUMBERG was a psychiatrist or psychologist [which explains what
he was doing in Vienna] & that Caecilie, who no doubt anglicized her
name, was an artist who exhibited her work in NY. I'd love suggestions as
to how to find out about her work, as well as contact with relatives.
Please note that library resouces where I now live are VERY limited, it
takes a plane trip to get to a decent one, so places to contact by e-mail
or snail mail are particularly welcome.

Thanks in advance,
Irene Newhouse

TABISZ = TOBIASZ ? #general

S & R Chernoff <s.r.chernoff@...>
 

I have recently been told that one of the surnames that I am
researching, TABISZ, was derived >from the name TOBIASZ which in turn
comes >from the Hebrew "towi-jjah". I apologize if I have misspelled the
Hebrew phrase. I was also told that the name has been around since the
1500s in Poland albeit undergoing several changes over the years. Is
there any one on the list who can confirm or deny this statement? Please
reply privately unless you feel the response would be of interest to the
list. Thank you in advance for your help.

Shalom,
Is there anyone out there who is researching in BIELCZA, formerly part
of Austria but not rightfully returned to Poland, which is about 7.5
miles >from Krakow? I managed to find the location on a map, and it is
where my gm was born in 1898, and >from where she left in 1913 to go to
NY. I would like to find other researchers, if there are any, or anyone
who can tell me anything about the town.
