Hello,

I'm searching for my MONAT ancestors in Warszawa, and would be
grateful to hear >from anyone who is researching that family, and would
also like a translation of a document on ViewMate that may be relevant
to that family.

Shmuel Moshe (aka Samuel or Sam) MONAT, was born in Warszawa about
1849. He was a soldier and lived in Petrozavodsk, Russia. He retired
from the army and immigrated to New York City about 1896, where he
worked as a plumber and tinsmith. His birth in Warszawa was recorded
in an 1893 list of Jews in Petrozavodsk, which said he was 43 years
old.

According to his death record in New York City in 1903, his parents
were "Israel" and "Martha". I have no reason to believe that his
parents ever immigrated to the US, so I suspect that Martha was an
Americanized version of her Yiddish name, but that she never went by
that name.

I've posted a record in Polish on ViewMate that might possibly be for
a brother of Sam, and I would like a translation:
https://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=60956 (please
respond on the ViewMate form or privately by email). It is indexed by
JRI-Poland as the birth of Josef Hersz MONAT to Izrael and Ryfka Matla
on 23-Dec-1847. Perhaps the mother's second name Matla was what was
recorded as Martha?

Also, if anyone would like to compare DNA results on gedmatch.com, or
knows about a connection to the MONATs of Lodz I would love to hear
from you.
Thanks,
