The brothers Silver - London caterers and pastrycooks of the 1890s #general

Harold Lewin <harmir@...>
 

Trying to help a friend. If a genner knows anything about H&E Silver or M.
Silver or Isaac Silver, all sibling pastrycooks and caterers in London of
the 1890s and advertising separately in the Jewish Chronicle, the
information would be greatly appreciated. Harold Lewin - Jerusalem


Re: Immigration to USA through Canada #general

Jeff Sugarman <sugarjf@...>
 

In addition to the St. Albans lists already mentioned, NARA also has some
indexes of crossings >from Canada to Detroit.

The Canadian Archives has both passenger arrival lists and immigration
cards for each immigrant. If you can determine the date of arrival (maybe
from naturalization documents?), you may be able to find both. My
grandfather arrived in Quebec, sailing >from Antwerp in 1920. I requested
films >from the Canadian Archives by interlibrary loan. This worked out
well, and I was able to find both the passenger list and immigration card.

SILVERMAN Family #general

robert.gleek <robert.gleek@...>
 

I am looking for the descendants of the Pole Issa Silverman (born Harris?)
and his wife Annie (nee Goldstein) who were both born in around 1865.
(Interestingly Issa's brother Morris married Annie's sister Sarah).
Their children included David Silverman and Nathan - and I am looking for
descendants of their children who, if they are still alive, will be aged
around 85.
Their names are Sammy, Sidney, Pearl and Sadie Silverman.
Thanks you,
Daniel Gleek (London)

Crypto Jews of Puerto Rico #general

NICOLE WEISSMAN <nweissman@...>
 

I am researching the names Mendoza, DeMendoza and Rodriguez in Puerto
Rico. Family lore has it that my father was of Jewish descent but I have
not been able to verify this. My grandfather, who I was told was >from
Seville, came to Puerto Rico in the late 1800's. He married into the
Rodriguez family and had five sons and one daughter. The family was
supposedly associated with the town of Rio Grande, P.R. but I have not
been able to find any original documents. My father married a woman whose
last name was Franco Villanueva y Calderon. That family might have come

from Venezuela originally.

Re: The Yiddish work "roys" #general

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

Your family name was probably a variant of ROSE. I do not know Slavic
languages and so can't tell you a possible Slavic origin. My closest
guess is Ross, German for horse. If you go by the pronunciation and a
Yiddish word, "roys" would be a Galitzian prnounciation of the German
'raus (properly heraus) which means (get) out!, scat, scram, outside,
expelled and so on.

Hope this helps

Sorry, for once you are mistaken

Royz - in Yiddish: resh vav jod zayin - means rose, which makes ROSE an
obvious name to take for a family with such a name emigrating to USA. In
Poland the name would probably be spelled ROJZ - and Beider finds it in
Biala, Radzyn, Pulawy, Janow and Warsaw. Artificial names starting with
ROJZ- abound in Poland and they all derive >from the name of that flower.

UK Friendly Societies #general

Rebeccadan <rebeccadan@...>
 

The Kalman reference to Jewish Friendly Societies is:
The Jewish friendly societies of London 1793-1993
J Hist Studies 33 1992-94.

Those interested in other Jewish communities of the
UK could consult:
Rainer Liedtke
Self-help in Manchester Jewry: the provincial independent tontine society
Manchester Region History Review 1992

or Zoe Josephs
The Friendly Societies
in Z Josephs (ed)
Birmingham Jewry Vol II More Aspects 1740-1930 (pub. 1984)

Those interested in friendly societies, which were significantly different
to landsmanshaften, could join the Friendly Societies Research Group which
can provide further information about specific societies and information
about sources. Their website is:

NARA holds these records on microfilm. What you want are the Canadian
border entries, known as the St. Alban's lists. St. Alban's is a town in
Vermont, but this list nonetheless includes all entires into the US from
Canada via Atlantic and Pacific ports and everything in between. You can
read about them here. You can obtain the microfilms through the Family
History Centers if you are not located near a National ARchives branch.
