Re: old name for Szombathely #hungary

I was on vacation, but I have not seen an answer to this question.

Szombathely was called Steinemanger in German and if I remember correctly,
Sabaria by the Romans.

Yussel is a very common Yiddish version for Joseph.

Could Josiel be a Yiddish or Hebrew version of Joseph?

If not what are some possibilities for Joseph - particularly for
Lithuanian Jews/ALD?

Haven't found this one in the archives. Any help would be appreciated!

Searching for family Kesner

I posted a message a few days ago seeking the family of a Mary Kesner who
lived in Chicago in 1921. I have since learned further details as below.

Mary was born Mary Proops in the U.K. in 1876 and married Solomon Kesner
in London in 1901. They had a son Abraham born in London 1908. Mary and
Abraham are known to have travelled to the United States and arrived at
Ellis Island 1913.

Anyone with any knowledge of this family, please contact me privately.

Thank You

Has anyone ever heard of a ship named "Warrington"?
Checked Morton Allen and can't find it anywhere.

It supposedly came to New York via Liverpool on or about Sept 9, 1890.

Got this info on the Hamburg lists.

If all you have is the name, it might be difficult, especially if
she married and took her husband's name. But you might start looking
for Canadians with the last name Groch by searching the Canadian
telephone listings at http://canada411.sympatico.ca/eng/person.html.

If she happened to go to British Columbia, there are online
searchable birth, marriage and death indices (1872-1900, 1872-1925
and 1872-1980 respectively) at

I don't think other provinces have anything similar online.

Researching Via WebCams??? #general

Debbie Raff <seraff@...>
 

I was in the midst of updating my website for my students, when a
genealogical lightbulb of sorts went off. One of my links is to webcams
throughout the world. For those who want to get a flavor for the area,
which they are researching, perhaps there is a webcam located nearby?

What gave me this idea was seeing so many webcams in Poland alone. This
link is for the Europe page, but as you can see, you can go back to the
world map for additional areas. http://www.punky.mtx.net/Europe.html

A quick review of webcams in Poland show webcams for the following
towns: Szezecin, Gdansk(Danzig), Torun, Bydgoszcz, Poznan, Krakow/Zakopane,
Katowica, Opole/Wroclaw, Swidnik, etc. This was done quickly, so excuse
any spelling errors.

Enjoy!

Re: Possible Immigration from Russia to Japan to U.S. #general

The book "The Fugu Plan" documents the circuitous journey that many Jews
took to escape Eastern Europe via Japan during the Holocaust. It also makes
wonderful reading. Many Jews went by way of Bialystok, and presumably many
Jewish residents of Bialystok went that way as well.

Of course, since you didn't give a year in your message, it's hard to know

Re: Possible Immigration from Russia to Japan to U.S. #general

David Lowndes <davidalowndes@...>
 

Rachelle,

It is certainly possible that your uncle's journey
followed any of the paths you have theorized. My
wife's great-grandfather, Aaron Halperin, left Vilna
about 1916 after his first wife died, according to his
grandson, who knew him well. He travelled east through
Siberia and lived in Harbin, Manchuria, for some time.
from there, his journey is documented in his U.S.
naturalization papers; his last foreign residence was
Harbin, he took a ship >from Yokohama, Japan, to Van-
couver, British Columbia, then took a train >from there
to Montreal, then to Pittsfield, Mass., where he ar-
rived in December, 1920, settling there because his
brother, Karpel, lived there. My wife's twenty-two
year old grandmother, Dvora, and her three younger
siblings, Manya, Max, and Sonya, joined their father
in the United States the following year, but they came
on a ship that sailed >from France.

It would be wonderful if we could learn more about
Aaron's life in Harbin. We may even have some rela-
tives who are descended >from children born there.

Best regards,

David Lowndes
