Zagare connection #lithuania

Rachel Heimovics <rachelheimovics@...>
 

My grandmother's first cousin, Ben Zion Feldman, was known as the Rabbi of
Zagare. He died around 1930. One son, William, settled in New York.

Ben Zion Feldman's siblings were Eliyahu (of London), Zipporah, and Haya
who married Shmuel Ragoler of Kovno. My father and mother visited with Ben
Zion Feldman's widow in Palestine in the early 1930s. I would be interested
in hearing >from anyone descended >from any of these people or who can inform
me about their lives and descendants.

Please reply directly to me.

Lionel Barnett was an Ashkenazi originally and was encouraged in the early
part of this century by the then Haham, Moses Gaster, to join the Sephardi
congregation.

told that an older brother of my pgf arrived in Port of NY on Feb. 4.
1894 >from Europe and another brother and sister arrived in Port of NY on
June 30 ,1902. Can anyone give me a helping hand with these? I'd
really appreciate it.

Re: Jaksice, Poland #general

David Gordon <dgordon@...>
 

Ada Holtzman asked about the correct spelling and location of "Jakszyc"
Poland, supposedly located in the Warthegau (a German name). There is
nothing I know of in Poland that is spelled that way. However, there
are at least three towns with the name of Jaksice (YAHK-shih-tzeh).
1. About 35 km southwest of Torun, on the road >from Inowroclaw to
Bydgoszcz;
2. About 35 km due north of Cracow, about 7 km southwest of
Miechow; and
3. About 35 km west northwest of Tarnow on the Wisla (Vistula)
River.
Of these, the first, given its proximity to the Warta River (Warthe in
German; this part of Poland was known as Wartheland during WWI) and to
Konin, seems the only logical choice--but I defer, as always, to
Alexander Sharon's expertise. Good luck.

==I had heard of many British Jews with the name Barnet or Barnett. All were
Ashkenazim. Does anyone have further information of Sephardi Barnet(t)s and
the origin of the name. Kaganoff had suggested that Bernet originated with
the Spanish or Provencal Bonjiorn as a kinnuy for Yom Tov, later transuted
into Bonnet. Is there a connection with the Barnet(t)s?
