Re: TEDESCO-Venice originally DEUTSCH from Austria? #Austria-Czech

Reuven Mohr
 

Debbie,
if Selig Goldschmidt's biography with Tedesco from Baden near Wien is not relevant, so also the former name Deutsch is probably not relevant. I think any German speaking Jew coming to Italy with or without a fixed last name might end up with the name Tedesco. 

Quite a few Jews from Hohenems moved to Italy (Trieste I know for sure). They would have been Austrians.

I'm aware that this is not making your research easier.

your thoughts/ideas/suggestions

Trudy Barch
 

According to all U.S. census records available  Nathan and Solomon Gottstein are brothers.  When the family first came to America they lived in Des Moines, Iowa.  Shortly after the father passed away, the family moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota where they spent the rest of their lives. I found the cemetery where Nathan, his wife, and Solomon are buried.   I have communicated with the cemetery office who brought to my attention that the tombstones have different father’s name.   I have spent the evening trying to figure this out  I have used all the usual sites we, genealogists look at.  But I am missing something    Your thoughts, suggestions, ideas would be appreciated.  

The father, Louis Gottstein died in 1910 in Des Moines but I was unable to find anything on his death or a cemetery for him. The mother, Sarah is on all the census records as widow and as far as I can tell never remarried.  She is buried in the Minneapolis area.  The family is from Lithuania and immigrated in 1910.

Thank you for all suggestions and helpful ideas that you might be able to give me.

My great uncle was sent there after getting in trouble in Lubny, Ukraine. Between the years 1900 and 1920. I know there was a synagogue. And I have a few postcards. Does anyone have any real data.  i.e. city directories?
Yale Aron Shapiro was a teacher, he knew English before he came to USA. He was into health foods and vitamins. He died in Chicago. Never married. He died during the depression times.

Bessarabia SIG #Bessarabia RE: Looking for sources of photos of Kishinev pre 1907 that I can use in a family website #Bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hello Alan, everybody,

I cannot tell you much about creating a website, but I can help you to find old
photos and old maps.

The best site for it is www.oldkishinev.com . It is in Russian, but you can easily
translate with Google. You will see on a menu to the right a section: Old photos
of Chisinau, also Old maps and streets, etc. Under Old photos of Chisihau
there is a section Buildings and streets of Chisinau until 1944 - that might be of
your interest.

The second great site for this is http://www.monument.sit.md/ that one is in
Romanian, but still you can easily translate. If you know the street name your
relatives used to live - you may even find a house... where they lived.

Ariel, I am not sure if I saw these two sites at Kishinev Kehila website. I think
these two are very important.

All the best and happy researching and good findings.

Subject: Looking for sources of photos of Kishinev pre 1907 that I can use
in a family website

Some of my cousins and I are planning to create a family website that
would include photos of Kishinev pre 1907. Am looking for
suggestions for where I can access or obtain such photos - it would be for a
private family website.

Also, I am interested in learning if anyone has developed a family website that
includes not just family genealogy, but also family history, memories, photos
(not just of relatives). What, if any, template did you use?

Thanks

Dear UK SIG Colleagues,

Is there any record of immigrants/passengers coming >from mainland
Europe to the UK near the turn of the 19th century (roughly between
1890-1920) ?

In other words, I am looking for the "UK equivalent" of the Ellis

My immediate reaction to this is that they were cousins, and for whatever reason one of them was "adopted" by his aunt and uncle.

Seeking Jerome M. SACHS and descendants

Sharon Korn
 

Hello,

 

I am seeking Jerome M. SACHS, who I believe is my first cousin once removed, or his descendants.  Jerome memorialized the Jacob JACOBSON Family on the Ellis Island Wall of Honor. Although Jacob Jacobson is by no means a unique name, I believe Eugene is my relative because I recognize his name from the 1930 U.S. Census as being Jacob’s grandson.  Please respond privately.  Thank you.

Thank you for this information.  The fee as it stands would be a burden for many retirees such as myself.  The increases are not warranted.  I encourage all to write a brief comment. It is very easy to do.  Copy the following: DHS Docket No. USCIS– 2019–0010.    Then click on the link Ms. Allen provided and insert the docket information in the search box. That brings up the comment box you will use.

There is an ad hoc group of genealogists currently writing talking points and organizing an action campaign to address the proposed increases and other changes to the USCIS Genealogy program. We hope to have the information ready to use on Monday. Stay tuned!

Great, thanks for the update. I sent Jan's message on to a non-Jewish friend who does genealogy. Hopefully she will share it as well.

Jewish Genealogical Society New York November 24 program

Harriet Mayer
 

Program:"One of the Greatest Untold Stories of World War II"" A Decade Long Quest After my Father and a Quarter Million Other Holocaust Refugees

Speaker: Mikhal Dekel, author of Tehran Children: A Holocaust Refugee Odyssey (W.W.Norton, 2019)

Sunday, November 24, 2019 at 2 p.m.

at the Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th St. New York

It is a largely unknown and astonishing fact that most Polish Jews who escaped Nazi extermination survived as refugees in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Iran and India. Mikhal Dekel, whose then thirteen-year-old father was such a refugee, will share her decade long archival research and global travel, retracing their 13,000 mile route. This route began with deportations to gulags and "Special Settlements" in the Soviet interior and continued on with collective settlements in the Soviet Central Asian Republics, refugee camps in Iran and India, and kibbutzim in Mandatory Palestine. Dekel tells a story at once intimate and historically sweeping, conversing along the way with Polish nationalists, Russian oligarchs and human rights activists, Iranians, Korean Uzbeks and Israelis, and painting a story of interlinked and divergent histories, of death and survival, of hospitality and cruelty, and of 20th and 21st century politics.

Mikhal Dekel is Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the City College and the CUNY Graduate Center and Director of the Rifkind Center for Humanities and the Arts.She is the author of several books and her articles, translations and blogs have appeared in many journals.

This meeting is co-sponsored by the Center for Jewish History.

Admission: Free for JGS and CJH members; $5 for guests and general.

What were the father's names on the tombstone?

I know of one case where a brother and sister seemed to have different father's names in Hebrew script on their tombstones.
But, it turned out that they were the same father. One tombstone listed the father's Yiddish name and the other one listed his Hebrew name. Itsko Leib  vs Yitzak Aryeh

Re: Seeding Jerome M. SACHS and descendants

Sharon Korn
 

Previously I wrote trying to get in touch with the family of Jerome M. SACHS, grandson of Jacob JACOBSON.  It has been suggested that it would be helpful to provide more information on Jerome, to help identify him. 

 

Jerome was born in Brooklyn, NY, in 1928 or 1929 to Nathan and Mary SACHS.  Mary was the daughter of Jacob and Bella.  Jerome had an older sister Elaine, born in about 1924, and a younger brother named Stanley.  In the 1930 and 1940 US Censuses, the family is listed as living at Mansfield Place and 24th Street, which were actually the same street under different names.  In the 1930 Census, the surname looks like SACK.

 

Please respond privately.  Thanks.
