Looking for Christiane MENDELSSOHN,U.S.A. #general

Mendelssohn <mendelssohn@...>
 

Could anybody help me to find Christiane Mendelssohn( daughter from
Wladislaw Mendelssohn born in 1891 in Warszawa ), who went to the
U.S.A. and could be still alive there : I don't know if she is married
and I suppose she was born in Warszawa between 1920-1930.
Her grand-father Henry (in Warszawa) was a brother of my great-grand-
father Isidore Isaac (1854-1906). A very difficult research. Thanks in
advance for any help!!!

Re: Occupation of Liquor Manufacturer for Orthodox Jew in 1840s #general

Jane Vogel-Kohai & Ofer Kohai <vogelko@...>
 

I don't know if it was respectable or not, but my paternal grand-father and
g-grandfather were both wine manufacturers and merchants in Mainz and my
maternal g-grandfather was also a wine merchant & manufacturer in Breslau.
I guess this was in the late 1800's and early 1900's. I know that at least
one dealt both in kosher wines and un-kosher ones. I think that this was
considered a respectable enough profession, I believe that they did alright
financially as well.

Dear Jewishgen community,

On of several occupations of my g.g.grandfather in the
1840s in Giessen in the Hessen was that of liquor
manufacturer. Was this considered a respectable
occupation or otherwise among the Orthodox Jewish

example, how would an Orthodox Rabbi have viewed the
occupation of liquor manufacturer?

Re: Last Jew in Bialystok #general

Tilford Bartman <bartmant@...>
 

Hello,

I just want to let list members know of a webpage I created
dedicated to Shimon Bartnovski who was the last Jew living in
Bialystok, and who passed away just months ago. His Bartnovski
family in Bialystok was connected in some way so far unknown
to my Bartnovski family in nearby Zabudow.

Here is the web address:

Hi everyone. I was wondering if anyone could help me translate the following
surnames--TRACHTENBERG and GRUBERG. I imagine they both mean mountain of

Any insight would be great.

Piatek, Poland, Vital Records Indexing Project Announced #general

Sheila Salo <ssalo@...>
 

Great news for fellow researchers of Piatek and vicinity!

Vital records for the town of Piatek (Piontek) have been discovered at
the Leczyca branch of the Plock regional archives. This find is a welcome
surprise, since it had been thought that records for this town did not
exist. Neither the LDS Family History Library nor Miriam Weiner's _Jewish
Roots in Poland_ list vital records for this town.

Piatek is in Lodz province in central Poland, latitude 52o 04', longitude
19o 29'. Neighboring towns include: Bielawy, a distance of 7.1 m >from
Piatek; Ozorkow, 11 m; Leczyca, 11.3 m; Kutno, 12.5 m; Glowno, 12.7 m;
Opole, 13.5 m; Dabie, 13.6 m; Zychlin, 13.9 m; Zgierz, 15.2 m; Lowicz,
19.4 m; Lodz, 21.9 m; and Brzeziny, 21. 9 m.

The Piatek records total 6,444 births, marriages, and deaths, and cover
the years >from 1826 to 1931. Most of the records >from 1842 on were indexed
by the original clerks. Thanks to Jewish Records Indexing - Poland through
its agreement with the Polish State Archives, the index pages have already
been photocopied and transcription has begun. The years without indexes
will be indexed by the Polish archivists. The resulting database will be
invaluable to researchers of Piatek,and also to those of surrounding
towns, many of which have few extant records.

This means that when indexes are completed for Piatek, this new material
will finally allow you to expand your research into a time period or
geographical area that has been elusive and beyond your reach. Once these
indexes are completed, you may simply print out an order form >from the
Jewish Records Indexing-Poland web site and order the records >from the
Polish State Archives.

I have agreed to take on the responsibility of Piatek Town Leader. Please
join me in making this extremely worthwhile and exciting project a
success. Your participation in this project can help bring to light
information you may have never imagined you would find.

Please spread the word to everyone you are in contact with who has an
interest in Piatek or this area -- family, friends, co-researchers. All
should be encouraged to participate.

Updates on the JRI-Poland /PSA/ Piatek project will be available in the
future at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/psastat.htm
click on "Status Report: PSA Projects Underway."

If you are not familiar with the JRI-Poland database, please go to the
JRI-Poland home page <http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL> to find out more.
By clicking on "Search the database," you can experiment and see how the
system works. By clicking on the hyperlink "Polish State Archives" on the
main table, you can find out more about the Polish State Archives projects.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

RINGGOLD and Land & Deed Records #general

The Kendrick's <kendrickkreation@...>
 

Hi!

It's taken almost a year, but I do believe we have the confirmed surname
of our RING family prior to immigration to the United States. The RING's
of America most likely were the RINGGOLD's of Austria.

Thursday, I was contacted by a link to the family who said, "the original
surname was RINGGOLD." Through numerous searches today I have located a
John RINGGOLD who lived at 13 Kirkpatrick St., Pittsburgh, Allegheny
County, PA. This document shows him living at this address in 1890 -
1891. Although this may be a coincidence, letters >from my grandmother to
my grandfather in my possession show grandpa living at 128 Kirkpatrick
St., Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, PA >from c. 1912-1917. Relatives say at
one time, a member or members of the RING/RINGGOLD family owned an entire
block in Pittsburgh.

To me it this is all worth investigating with thoroughness.
How might I locate land & deed records for the property at 13 and 128
Kirkpatrick St. for the years 1890 - 1891 and 1912 to learn who the owners
were. If anyone knows the correct address to write for this information,
or if anyone might have access to these records, please contact me
privately. Your help might just break-through a 25 year old brick wall.

Also, if anyone has access to Pittsburgh city directories for the above
years I would be most appreciative of a lookup.
Thank you for your time and any assistance.

Re: Possible Mailing lists #general

Heres a couple to try, but they may or not be Jewish.

Rootsweb.com -
Follow the links for mailing lists also separate links for Forums. There
are also countless independent mailing lists based on the surname that you
are searching. Some of these have proven to provide valuable contacts and
I've already come across 3 different people that we are 70% to 80% sure
that we share a family link. Besides the relatives, the search tips and
techniques are almost as priceless. If your Surname's) are not listed, you
have the option of starting your very own list. This could a good thing
but ask me again in 3 months or so, because I just adapted a surname list
that wasn't being maintained (no moderator) and I'm thinking of starting
one. Rootsweb.com also has 2 email newsletters called Rootsweb Review and
another Missing Links.


Theres also some decent Forums and/or Clubs though both MSN and Yahoo!
Some are Jewish related and some are pot luck in nature. All are free and
suggest you take a surf or 2 though those. On Yahoo! I'd personally
recommend:

Travelling alone #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

He may have travelled with cousins or with a married sister.

But aside >from that, we have a Pickholtz-Bernstein family travelling
together, where some are listed as Bernstein and some as Buchholz.

Israel Pickholtz

I have just received the List or Manifest of Alien Passengers
containing my great-uncle's name. It indicates he was age 11 at the time
and that his passage was paid for by his older brother (who would have
been about 14 years his senior).

Looking at the rest of the names on the list, none of which I
recognize, it appears the boy was traveling alone.

How likely would that have been (in 1909)?
