Moshe of Kletzk - 18th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to various published sources, there was a (Rabbi?) Moshe of
Kletzk who was the father of David, Rav (Rabbi) of Novarodok some 200+
years ago. He was a contemporary of Reb Chaim of Volozhin and had
some dealings with him. This David was also known for his sefer (book)
"Galia Mesechta" published by his son-in-law a Rabbi RABINOWITZ.

A handwritten very short and not detailed family tree, we are
descendant >from Rav David's brother (no name given) so I am searching
to find descendants of other children of Moshe of Kletzk to find if
actually we are related and to detail my maternal grandfather's
lineage.

The family name that we have gone by for generations is ABRAMOWITZ,
but I do not know what family name Rav David of Novarodok went under
(if at all).

Searching for descendants of R' Arieh Leib of Kremnitz #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Several published genealogy sources have the Mahara"l's descendants
noted down to a father and son Rabbinical family of Kremenitz, a R'
Shmuel and his son Arieh leib during the 17-18th centuries. These
Rabbis were descendant of R' Naftali KATZ (a.k.a. The "Smichat
Chachamim" the name of the book he authored). Most of these sources
continue with an unnamed daughter who married a R' Shmuel of Rava
Ruska and their descendants.

According to several independent private family trees (never
published) Arieh Leib of Kremenitz had a daughter who married a R'
Yosef, who may have been a Rabbi of Breznitz (not Czeck). We are
descendant of this family. Two of the supposedly more well known
descendants of this R' Yosef, are a R' Yisrael of Ostrow and a
grandson Yosef , who married the daughter of the Admo"r of Lechowitz,
R' Aharon and Perel.

Does anyone on this forum have any details as to the identity of the
above Yosef and/or his wife (son-in-law and daughter of R' Arieh
Leib of Kremenitz)?

(US-CT) Bill To Permit Charge for a Genealogy Search #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

A bill has been introduced and held its first hearing on February 27 that
would permit local departments of health to charge and collect a fee for a
genealogy search.  The bill, HB 6280, is one sentence long and does not
define "a genealogy search" which leaves it open for interpretation. It
could result with a charge anytime a clerk assists a genealogist, or brings
books to the counter. 

While only 5 of the 169 municipalities currently have Departments
of Health, those five hold over 50% of the records in CT.  Evidently
the city of Bridgeport has been "illegally" charging a fee for
genealogy searches for several years-$40.00 and now has changed their
website to charge $20. The author of the bill Ezequiel Santiago is from
Bridgeport and represents  CT legislative area 130.  The bill may be read
at: http://cga.ct.gov/2015/TOB/H/2015HB-06280-R00-HB.htm

Testimony at the February 27 hearing may be read at:
http://www.cga.ct.gov/asp/menu/CommDocTmyBillAllComm.asp?bill=HB-06280&doc_year=2015
[or http://tinyurl.com/mgl9lp4 - MODERATOR]

The Commissioner of Health Jewel Mullen, MD, Connecticut Department of Health,
opposes the legislation and expresses the concern that with the ambiguity in
the bill a clerk could charge for a vital record if it was for genealogical
purposes. "Under current law, there are no authorized fees for genealogical
searches for vital records". The only people testifying in favor of the bill
were the Mayor's office of the city of Bridgeport and the bill's author.

Thank you to Bob Rafford, RPAC Connecticut State Liaison for bringing the
bill to the attention of the Records Preservation and Access Committee
(RAPC). IAJGS is a sponsoring member of RPAC. RPAC and IAJGS will be
monitoring the bill and Mr. Rafford is already working with other CT
genealogists to address genealogists' concerns.

Finding a missing relative from Chernyakhiv, Zhytomyrs'ka #ukraine

jireitman
 

Dear Fellow Ukrainian Rearchers:

When my paternal grandmother, Spzinca Goldenberg REJTMAN, immigrated to the U.S. in 1923, she was accompanied by 3 of her 4 children: Benjamin (my father);born 1905,
his sister Estera(born 1908)
and his younger brother, Dawid born in 1911.

A son named Aaron (aron) REJTMAN, born about 1900 (a guess) did not immigrate to the U.S.; we don't know what happened to him.

- Family lore suggests he may have been conscripted into the Russian army
- Did he survive the pogroms? Did he marry? Have children? Are there any relatives?

My research so far has encountered a dead-end, I cannot find evidence of his birth? Death? Marriage? Etc.

Any suggestions, tips, ideas or links would be deeply appreciated.

MARGULIES from Brody, Galicia #germany

Rhea
 

I recently acquired a copy of an interview that a cousin did in 1985
with my grandfather Nathan Tannenbaum. My grandfather stated that his
mother Beile MARGULIES, born in Brody Galicia circa 1866, had a
married sister who lived in Hamburg, Germany. He met her and her
husband when my grandfather, his siblings, and his widowed mother were
in Hamburg prior to boarding a ship to the United States.
Unfortunately he didn't mention the name of his aunt's husband.

Prior to receiving this interview transcript I thought I knew the
names of all my great-grandmother's siblings, some of whom immigrated
to the U.S., some of whom immigrated to Vienna, and one of whom
remained in Galicia.

I'm looking for information about my GGM's sister, whose first name I
don't know, and her husband, whose surname I don't know, who resided
in Hamburg in 1906. The parents of my great-grandmother were Abraham
Isaac MARGULIES and Ruchel Malka GOLDWURM, both born in Brody,
Galicia. I don't know the names of Abraham's parents. Ruchel's parents
were Ephraim Chune GOLDWURM and Hesse SCHAPIRA, presumed to have been
born in Galicia.

I have an account at familytreedna.com and gedmatch.com if anyone
would like to compare chromosomes. Thank you very much!

Re Brazilian Immigration Cards - Abraham Bernstein, Drohobycz, Ukraine #galicia

Marilyn Langfeld
 

Thank you so much, Ann Rabinowitz, for your valuable suggestion to
search for Brazilian Immigration Cards on familysearch.org.

I was able to find a Sao Paulo Immigration card for my great uncle
Jacques LANGFELD's daughter, Rachel BASSI, dated 1938, that listed
Jacques Langfeld as her father, and Ides LANGFELD as her mother, and
lists her as a married student.

With Ides' given name (which I did not know before), I was able to find a
Hamburg Passenger list (on Ancestry.com) >from 16 May 1923 for Ides,
and her children Ruchel, Motes and Schloime LANGFELD, with Rio Janeiro
as their destination. I know that Jacques was living in Sao Paulo in 1945,
so while I have more work to do to verify that these are really my
relatives, it's very likely that it has been a great help in tracing Jacques
and his family.

Thanks again,
Marilyn Langfeld
