City of Triest is Maiden Name #general

I assume that Triest refers to the Italian city of Trieste that in 1875
would have been within the Austro Hungarian Empire.

I do not think it has anything to do with the city of Triest, normally
the "geb. Triest" refers to mother's maiden name.

Shalom,

It seems to me quite probable that someone was living in one town and
working in another.
In my family, the eldest brother of my father was a furrier.
He had a family - wife and children in Zawiercie and worked in Krakow,
more than 100 km away.
He was coming home every two or even three weeks, on Sundays, by train.
That's a reality of life when you have to do for living.

Handsome Eastern European Immigrant to London - a GOLDBERG from Lodz? #general

Saul Marks <saulmarks@...>
 

Dear All,

Does anyone recognise the handsome Eastern European immigrant to London's
East End depicted in file VM 1840? I've been told it may be a very early
picture of Israel Goldberg, who was born in Lodz in 1884 & married Chana Ita
Tempelhoff there & moved to London c.1905. He died in London in 1973. His
brother, Hyman, & his family moved to the Brighton Beach area of NYC in
1922.

Many thanks,

From 1930 Census: Where in Lithuania? #general

LindaJim Morzillo <jmorzil1@...>
 

I hope that someone can help me figure out the place (Zahina?) stated - not
clearly - on a page of the 1930 census. Please look at:

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=1821

This family, distantly related to me, consisted of parents born at this
place in Russia and their three children born in Pennsylvania. My family
came >from the Raseiniai area of Lithuania, the closest to that spelling and
geographical place is Zuikine as shown in the JG Shtetl Seeker.

How would the person taking the census hear the birthplace spoken by these
immigrants with Yiddish accents? Would it be a good guess that Zuikine is
where they meant? Other vital records just have Russia filled in and the
parents did not become citizens.

Thank you!

Bendzin Question #general

Rachel Slansky
 

I have recently had some letters translated >from family members who did
not survive the Holocaust. One is >from a Jakob SALOMON , who was married
to my great grandfather's sister, Anna. They had been separated- she was
in Teplitz-Schoenau, where they once lived together, and he was in
Bendzin.

My question is- does Jakob's presence in Bendzin imply anything about
where he was >from or the skills he had, or even his social position? I
know very little about him. I am trying to figure out if there was a
reason he ended up in that particular place- as far as I can tell, he
was the only one in the family to end up in Bendsburg. Why was Anna left
behind?

Incorrect information on tombstones #general

Anne Lapedus <angi@...>
 

Incorrect information on Tombstones. Family giving information of the
deceased often get it wrong. For years, I was confused when I found a
BREST Grave in Johannesburg, S.Africa and it said *Cohain* on the stone. I
know that none of the BRESTS are Cohainim and this threw a spanner in the
works for my research. for 5 years I was puzzled and after much research I
managed to find the wife and I called her, and she told me that she didn't
know for sure if he was a was not a Cohain!!. She gave me the name of the
Shul where they got married and I called the Shul who confirmed that he was
certainly not a Cohain but a Yisroel, which is what our family are. So it
really does depend on who gave in the information but one would think a wife
would know if her husband was or was not a Cohain!

Holland. Are there any genners out there who live in Holland. If so,
please could you contact me privately on angi@icon.co.za
