Possible descendancy from R' Chaim of Volozhin #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I am trying to confirm a scribbled note which my great uncle wrote
that his wife was a descendant of R' Chaim of Volozhin. I have
searched various published trees of his family and have not found a
connection. This of course does prove that there wasn't a connection
as I know that many rabbinical trees do not include children who did
not become well known Rabbi. This was told to me by a member of the
SOLOVEITCHIK family which incidently are also connected to R' Chaim.

The details of my family are as follows:

My great great grandmother, Sarah Hinde KANTOR, the presumed
descendant, came to Jerusalem in the 1870s as a widow with 4 orphans.
Her deceased husband Shlomo was a Chazzan in Pinsk/Karlin.. Possibly
the most well known ofthe 4 was R' Chaim Dov KANTOR who lived in
Moshava Mayer Shfeya near Zichron Yacov and was the masgiach of the
yekev (winery) there.

Supposedly Sarah Hinde (or her mother) was an orphan at the time of
her wedding and R' Itzaleh, R' Chaim's son, took her to the chuppa
(canopy instead of her late parents. In an unconfirm note there
appears the name LANDAU which is very interesting as Itzaleh had a
daughter who was married to a R' Shmuel LANDAU and they both died at
an early age leaving at least one little daughter. I was contacted by
a descendant of this daughter many years ago butcouldn't find a
connection to them. I was thinking that possibly the above LANDAUs
may have had other children who do not appear in published trees of
this family.

Another theory may be that we are connected to a little known son of
R' Chaim, Yoseph who married a woman >from Shershev. He does not appear
in most published trees, possibly because he, or more probably his
son, became a chassid, which was not "politically correct" in those
circles.

I have checked with descendants of the above Chaim Dov but they are
not aware of a family connection to the Volozhin family except a
possibility that he may have been named for R' Chaim of Volozhin.

Anyone have any toughts or comments on the above?

TIA

1916-1921 Lodz Registration Card Extraction Project - an outstanding volunteer accomplishment #general

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear friends:

The announcement by Project Leader Margalit Ir of the completion of the massive
1916-1921 Lodz Registration Card project deserves special attention >from all
researchers with roots in Poland. History has shown and it is clear >from the
cards that Lodz was inhabited by families with origins all over Poland (and
nearby countries, as well) so don't overlook this source when searching for
families that remained in Poland but who no longer appear in the records of the
town where you know where they were born.

As Margalit has noted, she has heard >from countless researchers who have made
significant discoveries in the cards. But along with those researchers, we all
owe a debt of gratitude to Margalit for her leadership and devotion to bringing
this project to an end. Yasher Koach, Margalite.

I could not write about this project without mentioning something about
volunteering in general that is very close to my heart. As the Executive
Director of JRI-Poland, I have treasured those volunteers who not only step
forward when the opportunity arises - and often doing so without being asked -
but who carry out their tasks with passion and devotion in the most professional
manner. Thank you for being one of those prized volunteers, Margalit.

Also, as noted on the project website,
https://jri-poland.org/psa/lodz-registration-card-scans.htm , the Lodz
Registration Cards may include previously unknown family members who were
victims of the Shoah and not yet memorialized through Pages of Testimony.
Researchers are encouraged to submit a Page of Testimony to Yad Vashem where
you determine that it is likely that a family member did not survive. For
information on Pages of Testimony, see: https://yvng.yadvashem.org/

"The Lodz Registration Card Project is now complete and the data is

than 230,000 Jewish individuals. They are now forever part of the
database of Jewish Records of Poland, available for all to find."
