I just joined the Belarus SIG. My mother's maternal grandparents were
from Rogachev - searching for ZALMANOV / ZELMANOV (have made several
contacts via JewishGen) and YASHINEFSKY (no luck, so far).

Photos of shtetl. Might be Mir #belarus

Reeva Kimble <rKimble@...>
 

I found some old photos (1920s?) of town scenes in a drawer full of photos
belonging to my grandfather. Joe Jacobson was born in Mir (near Minsk,
Belarus) and came to the US in 1884.

These photos might come >from Mir, taken by someone giving a talk about his
trip and selling copies of the photos. (I guess that because the photos are
numbered.) If anyone can identify these pictures as Mir or as definitely
not Mir, I would love to hear >from you. Any information would be useful.

Please come to my web site and click on the link to: Might be Mir

Thank you,

Every so often I check the JRI-Poland database for family names. In my

that I found the town name... Ostrow Maz! I began looking around in
the info available for this town and discovered that Stanley Diamond
was researching the same surname.

As quick as I could type I sent Stanley an email, asking if my names
sounded familiar. Stanley quickly esponded that he was researching
the OFFMAN family, but that his cousin Judie Ostroff-Goldstein knew
more about that branch of the family than he did. I emailed Judie and
within a few hours of emailing and telephoning, had a GEDCOM file on
my PC with about 700 relatives (Stanley's note: just in the OFMAN
branch of Edward's family) I never knew about. Not only did I find whole
branches of the OFFMAN family, but I was introduced to two
wonderful people (Judie and Stanley), without whom this discovery
would not have been possible.

Folks, I could not let this one pass without comment... First, you
should know that, as so often happens, I had been in touch with Edward
concerning other common areas of interest -- in this case the town of
Wyszkow -- long before a family relationship turned up. That's how
Judie GOLDSTEIN and I met... first as researchers with a mutual
interest in Ostrow Maz. and then discovering the blood relationship.

Moral of the story, be nice to everyone you talk to or write, they may
be related. It is, in fact, an important reminder for me personally.

anyone in his wife's family had any signs of mild chronic anemia <grin>.

ROSENTHAL #general

Patrick Porter <phbp@...>
 

I'm just visiting this NG for a moment and I had a question about the
name ROSENTHAL---
My grandmother was a Protestant---a Lutheran, born in
Colorado in the 1880's. Her grandmother was said to have been a Jewish
woman who had married her very Protestant husband and converted before
they came to Illinois in the 1850's >from Germany.
On a trip to Galena, Illinois, I discovered the old church records from
their parish that pointedly give her maiden name as ROSENTHAL. Family
oral history says that she was Jewish. There is nobody left who knows
the story for sure.
Forgive my ignorance about these things: is ROSENTHAL an exclusively
Jewish surname? Or is it just predominant?
I would love to add some Jewish traditions to our family gatherings, if
I thought Henriette ROSENTHAL HABICH were with us in spirit.
Please feel free to email; I may not get around to reading your posts as
soon as I'd like
thanks---Patrick HBP

Poem author? #general

malkajef@...
 

I remember reading, possibly on the internet, a striking poem about
genealogy which started:

"We are all born,
to live and then die.
When we are forgotten,
we die a second time.
The memories of our ancestors
and our telling of them
are what keeps them alive to us."

I do not recall where I got it from. Does anyone recognize this poem and
can tell me who the author is?

Jeff

I am searching for any genealogical information on families >from these
countries. So far I've noticed that almost all posts to this list are
related to Eastern Europe or the USA. Why is that?
Is there anyone else out there that has any connections to
Egypt,Syria,Lebanon,Iraq, or any other country in the Middle-East for that
matter?
Some names I'm searching are
MOSSERI, SAFDIEH, WAHBA, MASSRI, MIZRAHI, MAZEEN, TEBELE, NESSER, NASSER,
NOSSEIR, CABASSO, SHAYO, ANZAROOT

Please contact me on or off the list so we can all possibly work together
