query re: Canadian Immig records #general

Miriam Margolyes <75342.3217@...>
 

Dear Genners

Can someone answer this question please.

In the www.ancestry.com Canadian Immigration database, it shows me that my
relative Joshua SAPPERA (later SHAPIRO) came to Montreal
(where the family still flourishes) in 1889. They display the following
info:
it's >from the 1901 Census, Joshua is 64 years old.


National Archives of Canada:
Microfilm Reel No. T-6535, District 177 City,Montreal
Sub-District A8 - St. Lawrence Ward,page 4

There is an offer >from a firm called "ingeneas" to purchase a more detailed
electronic transcript this entry: would that be more useful that the
information already posted?

Is there any advantage in trying to view the original Census entry-will
that yield me more information?

I believe those microfilms can be accessed through inter-library loans.

If this is of general interest, replies to the Digest-otherwise to me
directly

Does anyone recognise this person? He was listed in a United Cousin's
Club Journal, with his wife, at [ ] Montauk Avenue, Brooklyn in 1928.
In 1957 he attended the wedding of another cousin. She has his name
on her wedding list, then living on Lefferts in Brooklyn.

name Eilimelech #general

harold <harold@...>
 

From: "Pamela Weisberger"
Looking for information on the derivation/meaning of the name:
Meilach or Elimeilach

The name of my father z"l was MEILACH (meaning - king). However, when I
was called up to the Torah, some Gabbais insisted on calling my father
ELIMEILACH (God is my King). It got so bad, that I refused to go up to the
bimah when I was called ZVI ben ELIMELACH.

You will find the name MEILACH in the TeNaCH in First Chronicles, chapter 9, verse 41.

Where to find 19th-c. records for Konigsberg & Memel? #general

Singer, Matt <MSinger@...>
 

Despite several years of subscribing to Jewishgen listserves, searching the
site, and posting queries, I still don't have a clear idea of where to find
19th-century records >from the Konigsberg/Kaliningrad and Memel/Klaipeda
regions, and which SIG is most pertinent to those researching ancestors
from these areas.
It might be that Jewish records simply don't exist for Konigsberg and
Memel--that they were lost in WWII and all the geopolitical shifting that
followed.

I'd appreciate any help and direction.

There are many Hungarians named Willie whose Jewish name was completely
