Re: ORLOVSKY Fashion & Ortho Shoe #general

Julia Lombardo <julialombardo@...>
 

Hello everyone,

Thank you so much to all who have responded to my question about "ORLOVSKY Fashion
& Ortho Shoe". I am sorry I forgot to mention that this was a fairly recent
business ownership, dating to the mid-late 1990's.

I am excited to say that through "Unclaimed Funds", "Property Shark", and "BBB", I
was able to get the address of the business, and even a picture of the store-front
after it was purchased by another owner. I was also able to find the daughter of
the man who purchased "ORLOVSKY Fashion& Ortho Shoe", and re-named it
"GLORIA Wide Shoes", in the late 1990's. Hopefully she will have some information
for me on the name of the original owner, since her father passed away.

Again, thank you all for your help, as always!

Dear all,

I am looking for patronymic-years data (pre-1826) >from Piotrkow.
On JRI-Poland's site there are excel files with patronymic data from
few towns, but not >from Piotrkow.
Does such a file exist?
If not, where can I find any relevant information (e.g. index of records)?

Thanks,
Ofer Manela

Some Jewish names are mentioned; issues are discussed I was unaware of.

The towns of Rojanke, Jadovno, Pag, Velebit, Karlobag, Slana and Metajna are

Descendancy from Reb. Chaim of Volozhin #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

There is a tradition in ur family that we are descendants of Reb. Chaim (Head/Rosh
Yeshiva) of Volozhin. Several hints point to this: A family rumor that one of my
gggrandmothers , who had been orphaned at a young age , Reb. Itzaleh, Reb. Chaim's
son, took her to her chupa. Another rumor states that Rav Gimple Yoffe, a student
of the Yeshiva and rav of Or Yehuda (in Israel some 100 years ago) told a member of
our family that he knows that he (the member of my family) was a descendant of Reb.
Chaim. A short yichus brief (letter) which a greatuncle of mine wrote stating "and
(we) are definitely descendant of the Volozhin family"-but did not specify any
details. If he did have more details than just what he wrote he may have taken them
to his grave.

The story of our ancestress having been orphaned at a young age is simiklar to what
has been published in various books regarding Reb. Itzaleh's daughter who married a
Rav (Shmuel?) LANDAU both of them died before marrying off a daughter who married a
prominent Rabbi (don't remember his name now). There may (probably?) have been
other offspring of the young LANDAU couple who were not included in published
family trees since they were not or did not marry prominent Rabbis.

The names of our supposed link to the Volozhin tree is a woman who married a
Shlomo KANTOR of Pinsk or Karlin somewhere in the mid 1800's. Shlomo passed away
relatively young and his widow and her four small children immigrated to Jerusalem.
Their son was Reb. Chaim Dov KANTOR of Shfeya/Zichron Yacov who was the "mashgiach"
of the Yekev (winery) in Zichron. One of the (3) daughtrs married SCHECHTER of
Jerusalem (grandmother of the prominent Breslever Rabbi Yacov Meir SCHECHTER and my
greatgrandmother), another daughter married ROSTOVSKI who I have been informed may
have been a descendant of Reb. Chaim's brother Zalman (may be the source for our
supposed connection to Reb. Chaim's family).

If anyone has reliable information regarding my direct connection to Reb. Chaim or
know of any projects regarding a full detailed tree of Reb. Chaim's descendants-
especially the LANDAU track-that has not ben published before I would be happy to
hear >from you.

TIA

Searching for living descendants of the Revd. Edwin Hyman Simeon Collins (1858-1936) #general

Patrick Anderson
 

Dear JewishGen Members

I am writing to ask for your help to trace any living descendants of the Reverend
Edwin Hyman Simeon Collins (1858-1936), a London born journalist, teacher, and
decorated scholar of Medieval Jewish Philosophy and Hebrew Studies. Collins'
interests also extended to educational reform (he was a very early pioneer of
open-air education for all children), and to Chinese political reform at the turn
of the twentieth century. Collins was an intimate of the young Chinese
Revolutionary in exile, Dr Sun Yatsen, particularly in the years 1896-7, and they
wrote and published a number of reform-minded articles together, a number of which
I have only very recently unearthed, for apparently the first time.

The 1911 UK household census lists 8 children for Edwin and his then 43 year old
wife, Ada Eleonor (nee Stanford): Ivan Julius Collins 17; Edward Guthrie Collins
14; Josef Sebastian Collins 12; David Geoffry Collins 11; Hermann Levy Collins 8;
Dorothea Rosa Collins 7; Robert Benjamin Collins 4; Kathleen Miriam Collins 3. By
the time of Edwin Collins' death in 1936, the family had been living in Kew, South
West London, for many years.

There also seems to have been an earlier familial connection with St John's Wood,
central London, while many of Collins' children were buried in a Jewish cemetery in
the town of Stoke-on-Trent in the English Midlands, including Collins himself.

With my warmest wishes to your genealogical community,
