Rlberliner@...
 

I have just come across a Russian document that add the above surnames
to my search list. It shows other names of LEYDON ECLAIR (sp?) and
belonged to a cousin whose name was changed to GOLDSTEIN upon arriving
in London.

The names are not listed in JGFF or FTJP.

TIA for any and all suggestions.

Sincerely,

Could anyone please advise me about the origins of the ZEIDERMAN family.

My late mother was Sarah M Zeiderman. She was one of ten children born to
Mark and Milly Zeiderman. Her date of birth was 27 January 1905. She and

The family moved to Manchester at the outset of World War 1. They were

One sister went to Canada where she died many years ago. Her brothers were
Harry, Jack and Morry. Morry had a son who becam a commercial artist. Jack
served in the army during WW1 and was badly wounded and taked prisoner.

Thanking you in advance,

Max owned a woman's waist/blouse factory, NYC, early 1900s. I believe

SAKUTSKY #general

dov & varda epstein <yknow@...>
 

My mother tells me that her maternal grandparents came >from Vilna Guberniya,
she doesn't know the specific town, and that their name was Sakutsky. I
searched the ALD and all the names that were similar to this were not from
Vilna Guberniya. Does anybody have any idea how I can find this surname?

Food minister #general

dov & varda epstein <yknow@...>
 

My mother has a vague recollection that her maternal grandfather had a
relative in Vilna Guberniya that was something like a food minister.
She was doubtful of the veracity of this claim. She didn't think a Jew
could hold an administrative government position of this sort. Does
anyone have any ideas on this?

Steffanesk/Stefanesti Thanks #general

Shel Bercovich <sbercovich@...>
 

Many, many thanks to all those who responded to my plea.

I have concluded that the "Steffanesk" written on my gm's documents
really was (as I believed >from the start) Stefanesti, Botosani County,
Romania, on the border with Moldava. As I said to a couple of
responders, I think the "Steffanesk" spelling came about as the result
of an English-speaker's liberal transliteration of a Yiddish speaker's
pronunciation of a Romanian name. :-) Hardly surprising, under the
circumstances.

It must be said that some of the responders were extremely thorough in
their responses, showing the tremendous amount of research being done
by a large number of genealogists.

Again, many thanks for your help.

Re: Changing names--how was it done? #general

Harriet Brown <hnbrown@...>
 

I don't know how other families went about changing their names, but I can
tell you that my BRUCHANSKY family did it the legal way in 1920 in Camden,
New Jersey. I was lucky enough to get the legal papers to show this a few
years ago. Sure enough, just as family lore had said, my grandfather and
his brothers and sisters all changed their name to BROWN at the same time.

I am curious as to how unusual this was, as opposed to the "just waking up
and calling yourself something different" route.

From: Aejordan@...

Has anyone looked into how someone changed their name at the turn of the
century in the United States? Did our ancestors wake up one morning and
say I want an American name and just start calling themselves by their new
name?
