Re: the word "recte" #general

David Rothman <drothman1@...>
 

I believe the term "false" was used for situations
where there was only a religious marriage.
I am guessing that "recte" therefore means that there
was a civil marriage.

Dear Genners:
from the several responses I had re: meaning of the word "recte", it
is
Latin for, 'properly', 'correct', 'right way', 'right', 'actual',
'truly',
'justly', and 'in accordance with the laws imposed by the
Austro-Hungarian
Empire, the parents (in my case) of my grandfather, were not married
in a
civil marriage, but probably married in a ritual marriage'.

Thank you,

Why the name change? #general

marife <marife@...>
 

My grandmother's daughters all swear that their mother's name was Eta
Milgrom.

However, on Ellis Island she is listed as Mariemlte Milgram. I am
certain she is one and the same person because she was coming to Atlanta,
Georgia to marry my grandfather and Atlanta is where it said she was coming
on the Ship Manifest. Does anybody have any knowledge about this strange
name change? Who should I trust, my aunts or Ellis Island.?

Thanks for your response.

Look up required - 1930 Bronx directory #general

Lehava Falkson
 

Dear Genners,

Can any one with access to a 1929 or 1930 Bronx directory please look up
G.(Godel) SHINDELMAN or SCHINDELMAN for me? Living in Johannesburg, I have
no access to such sources.

Hopefully, with his address known, I will be able to find him on the 1930
census... I could not find him at the address he had in 1920.

Thanks!

Meeting for Essex and London residents, UK #general

A J <genealicej@...>
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain (JGSGB) East of London
Group is holding a "Tell Us Your Family History" evening at Ilford
Synagogue, 22 Beehive Lane, Gants Hill, Essex on Tuesday, 27th August at
7.45pm.

We'd love to hear your family history and help you with your brick walls!
Don't worry if you have little knowledge of your family's past.
We can help you research your family tree!

Our special guest is JGSGB member, distinguished left-wing journalist and
trade unionist Francis Beckett who will be telling us about the
extraordinary twists and turns of his own family history.

Francis's father, the late John Beckett, was Labour's youngest-ever MP in
1924 but nine years later abandoned parliamentary politics for the British
Union of Fascists. His name became notorious, mentioned in the same breath
as Oswald Mosley and Nazi broadcaster, William Joyce, also known as 'Lord
Haw Haw'. So why has the son of a Blackshirt joined a Jewish genealogy
society? Come along and find out!

All are welcome to meetings of the JGSGB East of London Group. Entry is £1
for members and £2 for non members including refreshments.

For further information, phone 020 8551 0254, write to PO Box 1441,
Ilford, Essex IG4 5GH,

Re: Corcisco, Latvia? #latvia

Ella Barkan <elbarkan@...>
 

It seems that there is no Corcisco town or village, however I found 2
possibilities that sound phonetically similar, both mentioned in “Pinkas
Hakehilot Latvia and Estonia”.

On March 1916 an organized evacuation by train started in Daugavpils, the
majority were sent to 3 districts: Vuroniez, Oriol and Kursk or Kursek (p.
92) but it does not say were it is located. Information given about Gostini
list that most Jews left as refugees towards inside Russia.

Another possibility can be the town Karsava that was called by the Jews
Korsovke or Korsova (p. 213), around the same time many refugees from
Krustpils and Livani arrived there.

About Varaklani it says that at the end of 1915 many Jewish refugees
arrived. They refused to be evacuated into Russia. Finally 35 families were
forced to leave and were sent to Stavropol.

Heree are my family details:

FISH, lived in Salford, originally >from somewhere in Galicia, I wish I knew
where.
Somehow related to: Knoll and Solomon, who emigrated to the U.S. around the
turn of the century or a little later. Solomon family wound up in Lynn,
Mass.

FLASH, same information

Millie (Malka) Flash b.1872 d.1950
married Harris (Hershel) Fish b.1863 d 1943.
I don't know what year they emigrated, but I suspect either they were
married in England, or their families emigrated together, because Malka's
family lived in Salford also.

They had many children: Joseph (my grandfather), Johnny, Wolfie, Jack,
Barnett, Rebecca and Mendel.

Interestingly, Ann Rabinowitz, of this list, and I figured out that one of
this Fish family, perhaps my grandfather (I've forgotten) dated her mother!

I have been told that Malka's Flash's father name was David, perhaps Moishe
David as her tombstone says that she was the daughter of Reb. Moishe.

David Flash married ? and had Solly, Hennie and Malka.

David's brother Jacob also lived in Salford, married Yetta. They had three
children: Ginnie, Philip Isaac, and Molly.

A branch of the FISH family emigrated to Philadelphia, and I believe that I
have located them, although I can only speculate how they are related at
this point.

I visited Salford 7 years and miraculously connected with Jack's daughter,
(my father's first cousin). At that time I took as much information as I
could, but have no way of going backwards as they were very sketchy on this
information and some of it sounded more like myth!

Glad this list is happening.

My family was originally VESHASKY >from Suwalk-Lomza (Sereje) in
Lithuania, and sojourned and/or settled as SAUL in Cwymdare Wales. A
great-uncle is listed on the 1891 Wales census.

I have a photo of his pawnshop and am interested in locating other
records, especially if they might show other family members there.
