I am attempting to locate decendants of my grandfather Sam COHN who was from
Raciaz, Poland and immigrated to Texas in 1921. I have located some old
letters and located new cousins in Israel which has produced the following new
information:

My grandfather Sam COHN had either a sister or first cousin named Rose FOX. I
have many letters >from her dated around 1939. She was married to David FOX and
they lived on Cruger Ave. in the Bronx. I located a wedding invitation for
their son David FOX who was married to Marlene BRIKLOD on Thursday November
23, 1950 at the Temple Adath Israel in Bronx, NY. In addition, the family
owned a produce business in the Washington Market. David and Rose FOX might
have been Sophie KUGLER.

In addition, I am searching for the Shlomo GREENSPAN/GRINSPAN family of
Brooklyn. Shlomo was the author of Zdin in Plotzk/Jews is Plotsk 1960. His
son's name is Isadore GREENSPAN and his daughter is Nayma.

Also searching Hershel GREENSPAN family of Argentina. Hershel had a daughter
who might live in Paris and a son Gerard GREENSPAN who most likely lives in
Argentina.

Jack GREENSPAN was >from Raciaz, Poland and his mother was my grandfather's
sister. According to the Raciaz Yizkhor book, Jack's mother and father should
be Label and Hinda GREENSPAN. Jack lived at my grandparent's Rose and Sam
COHN's house in Taft,TX after returning >from the war to the USA. Jack
GREENSPAN married Lillian and had a daughter Sipora after moving to Los
Angeles, CA. Jack GREENSPAN may have owned a chain of beverage stores.

In addition, I have very recently sent correspondence to the two following
persons by regular mail:

David AIZENBERG of Paris and Stella TJAJKOWSKI of Stockholm.
If you see this posting and you would like to communicate with me by
electronic mail, please contact me at cohnsimcha@aol.com

I would be happy to hear >from you. Happy New Year. Stuart Cohn

Anne Frank #general

Eddy Fraifeld <efraifeld@...>
 

To those of you interested in Anne Frank, Tuesday the 15th 9pm EST on
A&E there will be a new documentary.
Anne is a cousin of mine through her mothers side. This documentary
focuses on a new biography being released on her. The author came and
did extensive research in my genealogical files of the HOLLANDER
family (her mothers family) which has been minimized in all previous
publications.
Additionally they will I am sure be focusing on the "missing pages" of
the diary which have as of late been making the news.
I have neither financial interest or editorial control, or for that
matter even exact knowledge over what the program will cover. The
book's author has however informed me that the book will likely
include the genealogical chart in the US print version.

I think that a regular database program such as Microsoft Access, Foxpro,
DBASE etc. Would work best. Create fields in a table representing each
piece of data that is on the cards.

I think that using a genealogy program such as UFT will only give you a
whole bunch of unrelated (although there are probably some exceptions) people.

Searching Anna RUBINSTEIN/ BOGUS N.Y. Connection #general

Seflaum@...
 

To all JewishGenners:
I am getting a little closer to finding Chana/Anna RUBINSTEIN (daughter of
Mendel RUBINSTEIN) who was born in Vilnius, Lithuania in the 1890's and
immigrated to the U.S. as a teenager. In the 1920 Federal Census for New York
State was the following for New York County (Manhattan):

Anna RUBINSTEIN, "age 22, single, occupation: dressmaker"
Birthplace: "Grodner, Russia/Poland"
Mother tongue: "Yiddish"
Date of immigration & status: "1914, alien"
Relationship to head of household: "boarder"

Head of household: "Abraham BOGUS, age 39, tailor, Grodner, Russia/Poland"
Other residents: "wife, Minnie BOGUS, age 36, daughters Sadie, age 12, Ida,
age 1 and sons Alex, age 9 and baby boy (name illegible) age 7 months,
Grodner, Russia/Poland"
Additional boarder: "Sonia KASHDAN, occupation: egg counter"

I would like to talk to anyone in the BOGUS family who might know anything
about Anna RUBINSTEIN. According to the Social Security Death Index, Alexander BOGUS was born in 1910 and died in 1961. Anna was the only member
of the RUBINSTEIN family who left Lithuania before the Holocaust. The rest
of the family was killed, except two members - one was my mother. Btw, does
anyone know if "Grodner" at that time referred to anyone >from the vicinity
of Grodno Gubernia, and was Vilna included in reference to this?

Finding BMD records #general

COL HARRY E STEIN <YTPT23A@...>
 

I have noted many requests for information on how to find and send
for city, county, state and country birth, marriage and death records.
I commend to you the book entitled, "International Vital Records
Handbook", by Thomas Jay Kemp, published by Genealogical Publishing
Company. The book provides this information as well as cost and
printed application forms for the repositories you seek. These forms
can be photocopied and when sent with payment meets the requirement
of the municipality. The book covers the United States very
comprehensively and to a lesser extent, other countries. You may
also wish to consider, "The Handy Book for Genealogists" published by
The Everton Publishers, Inc. Also a good book but less user friendly
in that it does not contain the forms, but does list genalogical
societies that have similiar interests >from which you can seek help.
These books are held in many libraries and can be ordered through the
interlibrary loan program.
