Congregation Share Tefila in Brooklyn #general

aggfaia
 

I would like to know whether the records of Congregation Share Tefila at 27
Cook St. in Brooklyn exist anywhere, in any form. Rabbi HALPERN of that
synagogue married my grand- father, Albert GOLIN (also spelled Golien, Holen,
Gallin, or Golen, in the past),and my grand -mother, Molly CHISDES in 1897. I
am looking for any records of Albert GOLIN.

When interviewing an elderly aunt, she suddenly remembered as a young girl
hearing about a great uncle & his family going to Harbin China around the
1920s. She doesn't exactly rember which family name it was, but probably
TEPLITSKY, MALLAMANT or BERG.

Howard, I am reading a book called "Escape to Shanghai" by James R. Ross
(1994). The author has done exhaustive research on the Jews who escaped to
China during WWII. You might try contacting him. The book is published by:

Railroad Disasters #general

Chuck Weinstein <cmw2@...>
 

Not to belabor the point, but for some types of information, this group
should not be used to replace a good, old-fashioned visit to the
library. There has been much written in the past couple of days about a
train disaster that took place on the east coast during the late 40's
and early 50's. According to my World Almanac (available at any public
library or bookstore for $9.95), there were at least 4 possibilities
between 1947 and 1954. My advice to anyone who wishes to research this
information is to look it up, then go find newspapers in the area of the
crash around the date of the incident for more specific information.

This group posts a lot of messages. For those for whom E-mail is paid
for by the time it takes to download, long digests become expensive and
cumbersome. Let's try to keep the information we seek to the topics
that are not so easy to research. Just my two shekels worth...

"Remnants of the Community of Gombin (Gabin), Poland" #general

ada01@...
 

Shalom,

I've found an article that my late great uncle, Rabbi Yehuda
Lajb ZLOTNIK (later changed to "AVIDA") wrote: "remnants of Gombin" -
It appeared in "Reshumot" - "collection of Memories, Folklore and Ethnography
in Israel", Third Volume, edited by Y.V.T. Lewinski and Dov Stok,
published by "DVIR" in Palestine 1946, pages 217-229.

Rabbi Yehuda Lajb ZLOTNIK published there an article about the Jewish Community of
Gombin, where he served as a Rabbi in the early twenty century (1911-1919).
He recorded Hassidic stories, folklore legends among which,
the childhood in Gombin of the great Rabbi Gombiner, Abraham
Abele Ben Hayyim Halevi (C1637-1683).
He also wrote in length about the grand unique and old synagogue of Gombin
, founded in 1712 (later burnt by the Nazis right upon occupation, on Yom Kippur
1939).
And the most interesting part of it, is that he was afraid that there will
be damage to the old beautiful unique tombstones in the Gombin Cemetery,
which might happen during World War I (!!!). (and what he predicted happened
25 years later but in WWII).

He wrote that Gombin was famous not only for its special, unique grand
synagogue - but also for its matzevot - specially old , decorated
and written with such high literary Hebrew - that were unique in the
whole region.

So he recorded the tombstones, much before IAJGS Cemetery Project existed(...).
He wrote:

"I gave many photographs which were made, to my good friend, the late
rabbi Levi Lewin - Epstein in Warsaw, lover of such valuables and he also
prepared some "glass masters" for the "light-pictures". I don't know the fate of
these photographs and I hope that his descendants who are now in Ereatz Israel
will search them if they still exist, will find a way to publish them or give
them for custody to a proper national institution.

... I shall also add that the transcriptions which I made on Tishaa Be'Av, of
26 antique tombstones in the cemetery of Gombin were given to Schecter Library in
New York".

Please advise me if you know how I may locate the descendants of Levi
Lewin EPSTEIN; did the photographs survive and where and if the Schechter
Library in New York still exists.

Re: Jewish Historical Project of North Dakota #general

DAVID SNYDER <ds66@...>
 

Dear fellow JewishGenners-
I am writing in regard to an old article I read >from Avotaynu (July
1985, vol.I) about Jewish homesteaders in North Dakota. In this
article, the Jewish Historical Project of North Dakota was mentioned and
I am interested in contacting the individual(s) who run this project -
if it still functions.
I am desperately trying to locate documentary evidence of a branch of
my family - TEITELMAN, who farmed in North Dakota until 1910-15ca.
After leaving the farm this family moved to Minneapolis where the father
was murdered while at work - apparently a hate crime.
If anyone has any information as to the current status of this project
I would be extremely grateful to hear >from you.

October Meeting of the Jewish Genealogy Society Southern Alberta #general

Mel Fishman <fishmanm@...>
 

Jewish Genealogy Society (Southern Alberta)

Meeting on Tuesday, October 27th, 1998
at 7:30 P.M.
Calgary Jewish Community Center

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about
Jewish Research at the LDS, but Were Afraid to Ask

Our guest speaker for the evening will be Sue Olson, President of Public
Relations at the LDS Family History Centre in Calgary.

At this important meeting, you will learn about the extensive international
family records which have been collected & microfilmed by the LDS,
(including those areas which may not be on file). Sue will demonstrate the
step-by-step procedures necessary in accessing records of value to your
personal genealogy, & will explain some of the inherent problems you might
encounter, as well as suggesting possible solutions. There will be a
question & answer period afterwards.

To date, the LDS Family History Centers, (with their vast banks of data
housed in Salt Lake City), possess the most comprehensive genealogical
resources available to researchers of all ethnic backgrounds. This is a
wonderful opportunity for you to learn how to use these resources
efficiently.

Make it a point to attend this meeting & improve your research skills.

Members & guests are invited.

Birth dates from marriages #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

You cannot assume any age is correct except when a newborn is taken to
the registrar for a birth record-then the date is probably right; even
then not necessarily, the baby could have been born the previous
evening. This is a primary source.

Any other record is a considered a secondary source, that is a later
record where someone states, correctly or incorrectly, what the date
is. I don't think many people 100 years ago knew their birthdates-at
least my experience would indicate not.


Age #general

Len Pincus <lpincus@...>
 

Sandra,
Age is a relative thing---depends on which relative is telling it.I have a
GM who I think was 12 years older than my GF--- family says 6 years
older----when my mother was born ----- exact age as GF. Using age on 1900,
1910, 1920 census data the GM went up and down with the wind. On really old
document >from Galacia there is a birth date--but she had to tell the
magistrate---so can I believe that one?

Good Luck
