Re: Searching: BELINKI and GUTKIN from Polotsk #belarus

Yosef DROR <dror@...>
 

I knew Lea BELINKI. Probably she had been born in Vitebsk at the begining of this century or at the end of the former century. She was married to Tubis. They had a daughter, Dalia, which I have not seen for many years, now aged about 70.

Lea had a brother in Kfar Yekhzkel, but no such a name is listed in the
telephon directory.

Sincerely yours,

Yosef Dror

Re: name -sequences #belarus

Debra J Wolraich <djwolraich@...>
 

Norma Brewer asked if I could give an example of the kind of three part
name listed in the Minsk Guberniya register >from 1819. Please note that
my Russian friend has translated as best she can >from faded handwriiten
listings. However, examples of some of the names are: "Ber Benjaminoff,
son of Lazarach" and "Boruch Shmueloff, son of Perchuch."
I noticed that a man listed as "Berko Abramoff, son of Klar__" has a wife
whose name is listed as "Berko Abramova"'s wife. In other listings,
there was a "Itzak Movshe, son of S_______" which appears to be a first
and middle name. At first I thought the second name was a last name,
but so many of them were first names that end in "off" that I didn't feel
they could be last names. In later lists there are names that are
recognizable Jewish last names such as Greenwald and Perlman.
Thanks for your assistance!

Assistance needed for archival resources in New York City #general

stephen lubell
 

I am searching for information on various members of my mother's family in
New York City and would be grateful for advice >from anyone who has
researched German Jewish origins.

1. My mother's paternal Grandfather was a member of the Freundschaft
(Friendship as in German) Club in New York City, according to his obit in
the New York Times >from 1917. Does anyone know what this was and where I
could find out more information about it?

2. My mother's maternal Grandfather was born in East Prussia in 1843 and is
said to have arrived in New York in 1857 at the age of 14. I would like to
find out exactly where he came >from and would like to find a. his
naturalisation certificate and/or b. the ship's passenger register when he
came. Where could I find a complete list of ships arriving >from Germany
(Bremen, Bremerhaven or Hamburg)) for that year and a list of
naturalisations for the period say 1860 to 1875.

5. Where can one view census returns for New York City for 1850 up to 1900?
As I live now in Israel I would need to do this by post or email.

Please reply offline to me at slubell@...

With thanks in advance.

Re: Yetta/Henrietta? #general

Adelle Gloger
 

Dear Group,

Sandy Bursten asked:

Is it likely that a woman born in the United States would use the
nickname Yetta in the early 1900s?
My mother had a first cousin born in the USA in 1919 who was named Yetta.
That was her name, not a nickname. She was names for her grandmother who
died in 1913 whose Jewish name was Ita.
