Alaska Yukon Jewish Pioneers #general

Norman Kagan
 

Dear JewishGen Discussion Group,

For several years, I've been researching the proud saga
of pioneering Jews in the Alaska and Yukon goldrushes.
Most were merchants who supplied nearly half of all the
goods brought into the area at frontier towns, some were
traders who peddled goods throughout the wilderness, and
others hit it rich or not as prospectors and land speculators.

A good many were immigrants >from Eastern Europe accustomed
to harsh climates, fewer were >from established American families.
If you can assist me in illuminating their history, please reply.

Regards,
Norm Kagan

Odd Female Name #general

S. Stuckal <roosteriver@...>
 

Hello All.

Trying to find my great-grandmother's Hebrew name - should be simple as she
was Elizabeth = Elisheva.

But her duaghter (my grandmother) says it was - Chotzki - spelling
approximate. Sounds more like a nickname or one of the variants of
Yechezkal.

Anyone know of a female name similiar to Chotzki?

Galati web page correction! #general

DAGAG123@...
 

In my great excitement to announce our work on the Galati web page, I made a mistake!

The Galati web page will be found on Shtetlinks. I am very sorry for any confusion I
may have caused.

The announcement should have read as follows:
We are very excited to announce that we will be launching the Galati, Romania web
page, through the Shtetlinks site, in the very near future. (Our goal
is by mid-March.)

We would like to put a call out, to any of you who have a connection to Galati,
and who may have photos, stories, travel journals and other pertinent information,
that you may wish to share and have posted on our Galati site, to please contact me.

With best wishes,

Stepney Orthodox Shul - London, and burials #general

SHEILA TOFFELL <toffell@...>
 

Can anyone help me find my GGparents? If someone was a member of the Stepney
Orthodox Shul, E1 in the 1920's to 1930's, where would they likely be
buried? I had assumed Edmonton, but having been to the larger of the two
cemeteries ( did not have time for the smaller one) when I was in the UK, I
did not find them. Would there be any official form of place of burial?

Re: RYBKA genealogy #general

Christie Fox <christiefox@...>
 

Dear JewishGen Group:

Am searching US/Poland for:
Konstanty P. ("Gus", "Constantine") RYBKA who was born 9/19/1881 (pos.
Warsaw, Poland) died 11/20/1960.

His kin also born in Poland: John ("Jan") RYBKA, and Stanley RYBKA (maybe
other children in their family, and possibly step children >from other
marriages).

Konstanty and his brothers came to America, and we know that his parents
Frank and Katherine came to America as well. It is said that his father
passed away int he US, that his mother remarried and then she returned to
Europe.

It is said that Konstanty came to America around 1890 as a stowaway on a
ship.
He lived and worked in NJ, Scranton PA, Elwood IN, Cleveland OH around
1911, and in WV till he passed away.

He married Josepka (Josephina, Josephine, "Josie") LUCZAK in Cleveland, OH
in 1903; it is said that she lived on the German/Poland border but met Gus
in the US.

On the JewishGen website I've noticed about 75 listings for RYBKA (and
dozens of variations of that name), over 250 came thru Ellis Island, at
least 57 RYBKAS were listed in Cleveland. I know some relatives are in MI.
I've found around 67 dates myself which may or may not be a part of the 95
listed on familysearch.com. There are many RYBKA names in the SS registry
(Konstanty didn't have a SS#, and naturalization has not responded...yet),
and a couple of hundred names are in 5 family trees of people I am in
contact with (one is in GeneaNet). There are both RYBKAS and LUCZAKS in
France (deceased are 45 for RYBKA and 1500 for LUCZAK); and have found 226
RYBKAS living in Germany at the present time. I've even found RYBKAS in
Slovakia......yet, my RYBKA doesn't connect with any of these.

Anyone having any RYBKA information, please contact me personally at
christiefox@prodigy.net. We don't know how to further proceed in
researching the RYBKA name in Europe. Any/all suggestions would be most
welcome.

Thank you.

Re: Ukraine to Bukarest (Bucharest)--Response #ukraine

Jeffrey Knisbacher <jmark@...>
 

Evan,
My late great uncle Nussin LIMONCHIK, as per his memoirs, fled Kamenetz
Podolsk (SW Ukraine) in 1924 across the Dniester R. to Khotin and then on to
Bucharest (along with another dozen or so friends, all of whom had just
become eligible for the Soviet draft). There he worked in a Jewish paint
factory for six months to save up enough money to buy a ticket for the boat
across to Canada (the Braga, a freighter on which he also worked) that
stopped briefly first in Providence, RI. Don't know if this was a regular
practice or not, but maybe so.

1910 Brooklyn, NY ED ? #general

Adelle Gloger
 

Can someone help me find the ED for 43 Manhattan Ave, Brookly, NY in the 1910
US Census. Or how to get census info for NY State/City census for other years.

I have looked for census info in the JewishGen info files, but was
unsuccessful. Have also looked at websites in the JewishGen Archives, but
couldn't figure out what to do. (I must be having a 'senior moment' that's
lasting longer than just a moment)

Thanks for your help now and in the past.

CARO: & Sunderland Hebrew Cong. #general

Miriam Margolyes <75342.3217@...>
 

I think someone was searching for CARO.

While transcribing the Sunderland Hebrew Congregation
marriage records, I find the Minister in Sunderland in >from 1848-
1855 was a Joseph CARO. He performed the Marriage
Service, but doesn't state specifically that he was a
Minister. His final marriage service was for George
ASHER & Ernestine FRANKEL who married on
Sept 4 1855. Mr Asher became the Trustee of the
shul & his signature features on many of the
marriage records. This is confirmed by the
photo in the JC of 7 January, 1949 which
Jeremy Frankel drew our
attention to recently, which had the following names
from the Sunderland Hebrew Congregation.
It was a photograph taken in 1862 at the
opening of the Moor Street Synagogue,
Sunderland. Those identified were: A.M. Richardson,
whose name is one he records for many years as a
marriage witness, Isaac Leon,
Harris Gallewski, Isaac Goldman, Isidore Gallewski,
Adolph Cohen, Hyman Isaacs, P. Lazarus
(Secretary), Noah Lotinga (Trustee), A.M. Lotinga (President and
Trustee), Emanuel Fryde (Trustee), Joseph Aronson
(Treasurer and Trustee), and George Asher (Trustee).

For heaven's sake, don't ask me for any
look-ups.

Enumerator instructions for 1930 U.S. census online #general

michael steinore <belaroots@...>
 

Every time a U.S. census comes out, as the 1930 census
will soon, there are usually some questions about what
such and such entry means. Very often these
questions can be answered by knowing what the
enumerator instructions were. The nice folks
at the University of Minnesota have enumerator
instructions for the 1930 Federal census online at

http://www.ipums.umn.edu/usa/voliii/inst1930.html

In clear English, it explains how the
census was to be filled out, and gives some
interesting details. Actually, the instructions
for all censuses 1850-1990 are available, though
in the more recent censuses, they are respondent
instructions, as they were filled out directly
by the population. Just change the year in
the above web address to be the year for which you
want instructions.
