Yizkor Book Project, July 2013 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

With the Boston IAJGS conference just around the corner, I am quite
certain that this month's Yizkor Book Project report finds many of you
making your final preparations before the big event. Unfortunately, I
am unable to be there but, very fortunately for those that will, once
again Jan Meisels Allen has graciously agreed to the Yizkor Book Birds
of a Feather meeting and this is an open invitation to attend.

During July, a further two books have been published through our Yizkor
Books in Print Project:

- Jaslo, Poland - Yizkor (Memorial) Book of the Jewish Community of
Jaslo, Poland
- Telekhany, Belarus - The Telekhan Yizkor Book

With these new additions, we have now published 18 books and you can see
the full list of these books and read all about the project at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html We continue to be amazed by the
very positive response to this project which we set up as a public service
to those interested in seeing these translations as something that they
can hold in their hands and share with their family.

I am also pleased to note that during July, we finished placing the
complete and substantial English sections >from the Brzozow and Dobromil
Yizkor books which were kindly typed up by Helen Rosenstein Wolf and Susan
Dressler, respectively. As I always note, there are many aspects of the
Yizkor Book Project in which we gladly welcome volunteer assistance and
typing up is just one of these. So if you would like to become involved in
the YB Project in some way, I would be happy to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for July, during this last month we have added
these 3 new projects:

Dear Friends,

As many of you know, the IAJGS recognized the KehilaLinks project
for its "outstanding contribution to Jewish Genealogy" at the just
completed conference in Boston. We are incredibly pleased that the
project has been acknowledged, as we have considered it to be an
incredibly useful resource since its inception in 1996.

But we must also take a moment to formally acknowledge Susana
Leistner Bloch and Barbara Ellman, the leaders of the KehilaLinks
project.

It is safe to say that the KehilaLinks project would be
unrecognizable in its current form, without the countless hours of
hard work, planning, brainstorming, and simple devotion that Susana
and Barbara display on a constant basis.

As anyone who has worked with them knows, they are constantly
available to answer questions, and will do their best to help people
be successful in their Jewish genealogical research. For this reason,
we view this award not only as a "JewishGen award" but as a well
deserved honor for two of our most important volunteers, Susana and
Barbara.

Please join us in congratulating Susana and Barbara by leaving your
congratulatory comments on our facebook page by visiting:

Your comments will surely be appreciated.

Mazal Tov!

While it is true that Belarus and Lithuania are two different

If one is researching a town >from Vilnius Gubernia which is today in

If your research indicates Belarus / Lithuania / Russia consider all

Joseph SAMUELS Descendants #general

Arlene Beare
 

I am looking for the Descendants of Joseph Samuels who was the brother
of my grandfather Benjamin Samuels. Joseph was married to Dora Dembinski
and they lived in Whitechapel. They had 11 children-Rose b 1883, Ada
b1885, Susan b 1886, Sarah b 1888, Israel b 1980, Annie b 1892, Eva b
1893, Lewis b 1894, Abraham b 1895, Philip b 1899 and Rebecca b 1903.
All the children were born in England.

Joseph gave his place of origin as Iochlin in the 1891 UK census. I do
not know where this place is but someone has suggested it may be Zychlin.
It has been written as Jochlin as well. Staying with the Samuels family
were an Isaac and Susah(or could be Susan as writing unclear) Rose. She
was also >from Iochlin and Isaac was >from Oserkoff which I am sure is
Ozerkow. This creates a difficulty for Ozerkow is North of Lodz and not
Galicia . If one assumes that this place Iochlin is not far >from Ozerkow
then where then is Iochlin. Was Joseph born somewhere else as he was
older and did the family move?? In subsequent Censuses Joseph is listed
as >from Russia.

Benjamin gave Krakow Austria as his place of origin when he entered Ellis
Island. In the 1891 census Benjamin gave Austria as his place of origin so
that would seem to confirm that Galicia was his place of origin. In the
1920 US census he said he was >from Poland.

If anyone can help with finding the Samuels descendants I would be very
grateful. I am really stuck. The name may have been Samulovitz or Zimmels I
really have no idea. Alexander Beider told me that Samuels was not a common
name in Galicia.

Dear Mr. Wertman,

from your description of the travels of Chaskel Wertman it is not clear
whether he ever resided in Antwerp. I don't see his name in the
Vreemdelingendossiers, the police files for foreigners. If he or any
relative lived there it would be possible to find more details in these
files. But it looks as if they were living in Hamburg, right?

Good luck,

Is there any way to obtain records that he might have used in connection

Descendants of Harav Arieh Leib of Raseinai #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Several years ago someone on this list sent me a tree of descendants
of Harav Arieh Leib and Rivka (Epstein)-(i'm not sure if EPSTEIN was
her maiden name or Arieh Leib's name) of Raseinai. The three children
noted on this tree are :Chaya, Harav Elyakim Getzel and Shmuel.

Chaya's husband or married name are not mentioned name but her sons
were: Harav Avraham and Aaron both of Slonim. Avraham's son was
Harav Shmuel Avigdor (a.k.a. Tana Tosefa) Av bet Din of Karlin who
died in 1866. One of his daughters (unnamed) married a Mordechai
Leib.

Elyakim's daughter was Chasya who was married to Harav Shlomo MINTZ
of Slonim .

Shmuel's son , Eliezer of Raseinai, whose daughter (unnamed) was
married to David Halevy Neches EPSTEIN.

I presume that the list was sent to me due to the fact that in my
family tree appear Rabbis who served in Slonim and whose names were
Eliezer.

As I don't remember following up my connection with this tree (or I
may have coming up negative) I am wondering if anyone knowledgeable of
the family tree of the above families could tell me if they know of a
connection to these families to a rather well known Rabbi in Palestine
called Chaim Dov KANTOR who was the mashgiach (Kosher supervisor ) of
the Yekev (winery) in Zichron Yakov.


Chaim Dov passed on to his children that he was a descendant of Reb
Chaim of Volozhin (or of his family). Could the above families have
been connected to Chaim of Volozhin?

I would also like to know who R' Shmuel Avigdor of Karlin's son-in-law
Mordechai Leib was? (my guess >from previous correspondences was either
Zakheim or Soloveitchik)

TIA

of R' Itzaleh of Volozhin. My family has an oral tradition of being
descendant of R' Chaim but without knowledge of an exact link.

I have seen various trees of R' Chaim-mostly those that have been
published- but there is one name on this tree which piqued my
curiousity.

I received recently, also, a list of memebers of the "organization of
Charedi Jews" in Tel-Aviv >from the 1930s of which my grandfather,
Chaim Yitzchak ABRAMOWITZ was a member. Among the few legible names
that appear on the list is a Nechemia DENNENBERG of Tel-Aviv. As
members of this presumably not big group I presume they knew each
other well. I am wondering if Nehenia and Chaim of the Volozhin tree
are related and if anyone knows if there was a family connection
between them.

Also, if anyone of the DENNENBERG family is reading this post, my wife
had a very close friend Nava RABINA (she married a FRIEDMAN) whose
mother was a DENNENBERG. I believe the family owned a Matzah factory
in Israel.

In addition, on the family sketch of Yitzaleh of Volozhin, there
appears the names Eliyahu and Yoshfeh, but I am not sure if these are
first names or family names. Can anyone tell me the answer to this?

If anyone would like a copy of this sketch I will be happy to pas it
on to them.

Several years ago someone on this list sent me a tree of descendants
of Harav Arieh Leib and Rivka (Epstein)-(i'm not sure if EPSTEIN was
her maiden name or Arieh Leib's name) of Raseinai. The three children
noted on this tree are :Chaya, Harav Elyakim Getzel and Shmuel.

Chaya's husband or married name are not mentioned name but her sons
were: Harav Avraham and Aaron both of Slonim. Avraham's son was
Harav Shmuel Avigdor (a.k.a. Tana Tosefa) Av bet Din of Karlin who
died in 1866. One of his daughters (unnamed) married a Mordechai
Leib.

Elyakim's daughter was Chasya who was married to Harav Shlomo MINTZ
of Slonim .

Shmuel's son , Eliezer of Raseinai, whose daughter (unnamed) was
married to David Halevy Neches EPSTEIN.

I presume that the list was sent to me due to the fact that in my
family tree appear Rabbis who served in Slonim and whose names were
Eliezer.

As I don't remember following up my connection with this tree (or I
may have coming up negative) I am wondering if anyone knowledgeable of
the family tree of the above families could tell me if they know of a
connection to these families to a rather well known Rabbi in Palestine
called Chaim Dov KANTOR who was the mashgiach (Kosher supervisor ) of
the Yekev (winery) in Zichron Yakov.


Chaim Dov passed on to his children that he was a descendant of Reb
Chaim of Volozhin (or of his family). Could the above families have
been connected to Chaim of Volozhin?

I would also like to know who R' Shmuel Avigdor of Karlin's son-in-law
Mordechai Leib was? (my guess >from previous correspondences was either
Zakheim or Soloveitchik)

For the individual who is researching OZINSKY and is looking for an
obituary in Cape Town, I suggest looking at the JewishGen Family
Finder (JGFF) for others researching OZINSKY. You will find another
family researcher located in Cape Town, who has been researching the
family for many decades. She can assist in helping you find the
obituary you are looking for, if she doesn't have it already herself.
