After giving a talk on the history of Jewish-Puerto Rican relations at a

of Jewish heritage in their families. One young woman told me that she was
told that her given name, Nitza, was originally a Hebrew name. Does anyone
have any info on this?

The founder of the Spiro Institute in London is Nitza Spiro. I am afraid
that I dont have any more information.

When I was a child, we would drive >from Buffalo,N.Y. to Chicago to visit
grandparents. On the way there was a store (possibly a small dept. store)
in Ohio around Toledo that was called KROHN'S and my Dad would say that
they were cousins but because of a family misunderstanding, we were not in
touch with them. Does anyone know of this family or what happened to the
store? It must have been in the 30's. You may reach me at RKE107@aol.com

Thanks in advance.

Searching: TAUBENHAUS #general

Greg <GMEYER@...>
 

Hi,

Looking for information on Jacob Joseph Taubenhaus b.1884 Safed and his
wife Esther Hirschenson b.1885 Jerusalem. They founded the Hillel
Club/Menorah Club at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, in
1919(predating the U.of Illinois Hillel formation of 1923). Jacob is
buried here in Texas, however, I have not been able to locate his wife's
grave. According to her last Social Security payment she was probably
with her daughter in San Francisco at her death in 1976. Jacob was head
of the Plant Pathology group and did historic work combatting a
devastating disease of cotton prevalent in the Southwest. Jacob had
several brothers and sisters who seemed to have scattered across the
earth. One branch I have contacted is now in South Africa, another
brother was headmaster of a Jewish School in Belfast, Ireland, two other
brothers worked in NYC at the time of Jacob's death in 1937. Jacob's
father was Rabbi Meir Taubenhaus of Safed(d.1937) who married a
Goldenbaum of Safed(one article I have seen says her family is descended
from Rashi). I would love to flesh out the history of this fascinating
family for the TAMU Hillel Archives.
TIA, cheers,

Searching: JOSEPHSOHN #general

davidj01@...
 

Looking for information on ancestors of Arthur JOSEPHSOHN, who was born
in Iserlohn, Germany, on Feb. 5th, 1884. He came to America about
1900-1910, settled in New York City where he married Lillian Solomon of
England, and had four children.
I have a "christening" certificate detailing his birth, which shows
SALOMON as the middle name of his father....the rest is unreadable. The
certificate shows a "job # 90" in the magistrate's registry, according
to a local translator, and is dated Feb. 11th, 1884. My searches so far
have not only failed to produce any Josephsohns at all, but have no
references to the town of Iserlohn either. Not exactly a world
crossroads, I guess.
