1989 Miami Herald Obituary #general

Diane Jacobs
 

Looking to the find the obituary of
Jean Leffeld, The Miami Herald , 2/24/1989.

If anyone has access to The Miami Herald,
I would greatly appreciate a copy of this obituary.

This has been a brickwall in my family tree
for many years which I just solved and was
able to find her grandson in NY. Sigmund
Leffeld was her second husband, after her first
husband Albert Solomon Montlake deserted her in
NY c. 1920 and left to marry my relative in Chicago.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Re: Jewish woman descended from a Polish queen #poland

antopolski <mantopolski1@...>
 

I agree with Nicole Haymans that in the most of cases the name by itself
does not indicate that the person is/was or is not a Jew.
Nadia Woolf wrote "and Estera DOBROCZYCKICH/POZANSKA. Estera is always (or
at least usually) considered Jewish - but what about
those two last names - would they be considered "Jewish?".

1. Most likely " Z Dobroczyskich" where "z" = >from and indicates maiden
name. For example Dr. Julian Dobroszycki ( note "s" not "c" ) was a Jew,
survived Lodz Ghetto and Auschwitz and became a historian of the Holocaust
2. POZANSKI I do not know but Izrael Poznanski, certainly a Jew, was one of
the creators of the textile empire in Lodz. You may Google his name to find
more.
Here you can see his "house" :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Izrael_Pozna%C5%84ski_Palace

BTW Jadwiga was officially the King of Poland because "queen" designated the
wife of a king and she was the King. Six hundred years after she died she
was elevated to sainthood - Vatican is very deliberate with such decisions.

"Where and when" would help in interpreting the choice of given
name. Jadwiga is simply the Polish equivalent of the German given
name Hedwig, which was quite fashionable as >from the late 19th
century, also among Jews. I wouldn't jump to conclusions regarding
mixed parentage.

I'm wondering whether Ita's mother was of mixed parentage. Otherwise
why would a (supposedly Jewish woman be named after a Polish (Christian)

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

umlaut over the "U") (I'm assuming that FRUMER is a variant of FRYMER, her
husband's surname, even though it sounds Germanic.) Ita's parents were
Moszek Zysel (unmistakably Jewish!) and Estera DOBROCZYCKICH/POZANSKA.
Estera is always (or at least usually) considered Jewish - but what about
those two last names - would they be considered "Jewish?"

from research, it seems to have been fashionable in parts of my own
traditional Polish/Jewish family, for female children to be given 'public'
Polish first names. A classic in my records is Kunegunda (named after a
13th-century Catholic princess/saint, the daughter of Bela IV, King of
Hungary who married Boleslaus V of Poland).

The record reads "Cert 3/1828 - birth record of Kunegunda HUBERMAN. This
occurred in Szczercow on 30 January, year 1828 at 8 in the morning when the
Jews Mosiek Huberman, a baker, 45 years old, residing in Szczercow
personally came forward in presence of witnesses Herszlik CIENCHANOWSKI, a
merchant, 48 years old and Dawid LADA, a worker, 42 years old, both residing
in Szczercow and presented us a female baby and declared it was born in
Szczercow on 29th January current year at 7 p.m. >from his lawful wife
Salomea, 35 years old. That baby was named Kunegunda. That certificate was
read to the father and the witnesses and signed by Herszlik CIENCHANOWSKI
and Dawid LADA".

By the way, my ancestor Salomea (not an obviously popular choice for a
Jewish female name) seems to have become Chana in later life!!

Deportation of Jews from Telz in WW1 #lithuania

Sidney Katzen
 

Hello all.
I have received internal passports >from the Lithuanian archives of my
Katzin family who lived in Telsiai (Telz) at the time of Lithuania's
independence. To obtain these identity documents you apparently had to
prove that you had the right to live in the new state. I have posted
page 2 of these passports of my great grandmother Zlata and her youngest
daughter Khana (Hanna?) on ViewMate at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM38794
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM38795

in which in the third section down it appears to indicate that in
October (September?) 1916 they were registered in the district of Oslo.
Can anyone shine a light on where this might be?

Thank You for your help.

Moshe and Paula from Orla, Poland Update #belarus

Hi All

My research on Moshe and Paula, both >from Orla, Poland took a dramatically turn
this week, with updates >from both Canada and South Africa.

The narrative originated in Orla and ended suddenly in South Africa.

However, my research started 80 years later in Australia and has taken me to
Poland, Belarus, the Baltics, Israel, the UK, Germany, South Africa and North
America.

I share my experiences about the challenges of travelling and researching in
different archives and libraries. Top of the list was visiting Belarus and the
State Archives in Grodno.

This led me to start writing and managing KehilaLinks as a volunteer, beginning
with the Orla KehilaLink and now extending to cities as diverse as Shanghai,
Berlin, Kimberley and Perth, 24 in all:

Updates can be found at elirab.me with regular posts on Moshe and Paula's

From Austria to Venezuela #general

Patrick Atlas <patrick.atlas@...>
 

My great-uncle, Edward Atlas, born in Lemberg, Galicia, in 1891, was
living in Vienna, Austria >from 1892 to 1939, with his family.
He underwent the JudenAktion in 1938 and was interned in Dachau then
Buchenwald, like thousand of Jewish people. He was released in 1939.
He fled to Venezuela, probably around 1939-1940, with his wife
Charlotte Atlas (a 1st cousin).
I have found that Charlotte was a passenger of the famous ship
MS-Louis, she came back in the Netherlands.
I have found a ship travel for Charlotte, >from Rotterdam to Caracas,
departure May 9, 1940.
Then they were living in Caracas, Venezuela, possibly >from 1940 to at
least 1951, when they emigrated to Denver, USA.
He was a furrier.

My questions are:

-how can I find a manifest of passengers of the travel >from Rotterdam
to Caracas?
-how can I get information about their stay in Venezuela?

Thanks for any information.
