JGenrs:

I am searching for members of the GERSTEIN family that settled in Israel
but were originally >from Poland.

Mendel GERSTEIN was a rabbi married to Esther.
They had the following children:
Israel GERSTEIN who was a Rabbi in Tennessee and made aliyah to Israel
Hyman GERSTEIN married to Nettie Swersky
Irving GERSTEIN married to Sonny ?
Sam GERSTEIN
Mendel's sister Sarah was my great grandmother on the EDELSTEIN side.

I'd appreciate any descendants contacting me privately via e-mail.

Thank you.

SCHNEEBERGER Family of Pfaffenhoffen, Alsace #germany

Ralph Baer <RalphNBaer@...>
 

I am a descendant of Raphael (Fole, Volen) Lehmann who adopted the name
SCHNEEBERG (later SCHNEEBERGER) in 1808 and his wife Fromet (Sara) Meyer
LEVY. Raphael was born in 1734 in Pfaffenhoffen in Alsace and died there on
21 March 1811. Fromet was born in 1740 in Neuwiller les Saverne and died
in Pfaffenhoffen on 2 June 1829. Almost all of the places named in this
message are in Alsace.

Raphael's parents were Lehmann (Leime, Jochanon) Baruch and apparently
Breinel. There is some uncertainty as to which of Lehmann's apparently
three wives was Raphael's mother. The other two were named Kehle and Zerle
Jacob. Lehmann's father was named Baruch (Borich, Barouch). Baruch died
between 1733 and 1750. He was born prior to 1665.

Fromet's father was Meyer Elie LEVY who was married to Keyle Isaac. Keyle
was probably not Fromet's mother. They lived in Neuwiller les Saverne.

I am very interested in obtaining any information on earlier ancestors of
these people.

The following are Raphael and Fromet's children:

1) Breinel (Breindel) Raphael (Sara SCHNEEBERGER) about 1758
Pfaffenhoffen - 21 October 1845 Niederbronn, married 10 July 1777
Pfaffenhoffen to Meyer LEVI about 1754 Niederbronn - 13 April 1796
Niederbronn, trader
2) Zipher Raphael (Sara SCHNEEBERGER) about 1761 Pfaffenhoffen - 5 February
1823 Soultz-sous-Foret, married to Koschel Alexandre (Moise HEYMANN) about
1758 Soultz-sous-Foret - 28 March 1837 Soultz-sous-Foret.

3) Elias Raphael about 1762 Pfaffenhoffen, married 4 May 1791 Pfaffenhoffen
to Scheinel (Regine) LEWI Marmoutier, moved to Strasbourg in 1816 or 1817

4) Beyle Raphael Pfaffenhoffen, married 18 August 1787 Pfaffenhoffen to
Joseph Abraham Wingersheim

5) Dinel (Esther, Aester) Raphael about 1766 Pfaffenhoffen - 31 May 1831
Pfaffenhoffen, married 16 November 1795 Pfaffenhoffen to Schmulen (Samuel)
Isaac KLEIN 1751 Pfaffenhoffen - 19 April 1846 Ribeauville, cattle trader;
Samuel's first wife was Anna (Hanna, Henriette) LEVY

6) Loewel (Loeb) Raphael (Leopold SCHNEEBERG) 28 February 1769
Pfaffenhoffen - 22 October 1842 Pfaffenhoffen, tradesman, married 1. to
Fromet LEWI (probably not a wife but incorrectly entered as this was the
name of his mother), married 2. to Jefen (Jette) Salomon (Ester BLUM) 4 May
1773 Weinberg - 6 August 1817 Pfaffenhoffen, married 3. 11 December 1817
Pfaffenhoffen to Rosalie (Rosine, Rahel) ROOS 22 June 1785 Hochfelden

7) Baruch Raphael Pfaffenhoffen

8) Lehmann Raphael about 1767 Pfaffenhoffen

9) Kain Raphael Pfaffenhoffen

10) Schoenle (Schoenel, Jeannette, Johanna) Raphael about 1774
Pfaffenhoffen - 13 September 1848 Malsch bei Ettlingen Baden, married to
Seligmann Joseph KLEIN 4 May 1751 Sulzbach in der Oberpfalz - 17 June 1822
Joehlingen Baden, cantor and school teacher. These were my third
great-grandparents.

I am interested in adding to my knowledge of the descendants of these
people. I have, of course, not included all of the descnedants that I do
know about.

Lehmann Baruch's known children were: (there probably were others)

1) Jacob Jochanon (mother ?) Pfaffenhoffen, married 4 September 1748
Schwindratzheim to Rickel Isaac WEYL Valff

2) Raphael (Fole, Volen, Fohle) Lehmann SCHNEEBERG (see above)

3) Beyle Jochanon (mother Keyle) Pfaffenhoffen, married 7 July 1761
Surbourg to Samuel (Sanvill) Raphael KAHN Ruelzheim

4) Meyer Lehmann (mother ?) Pfaffenhoffen - before 1771, married 19 January
1763 Pfaffenhoffen to Brendele Nathan Scherwiller. Brendele remarried to
Borach LEVY of Froeningue in 1771. Brendele was still in Froeningue in 1784

Known children of Meyer Elie LEVY and his unknown wife:

1) Fromet (Sara) Meyer LEVY (see above)

2) Guttel Meyer LEVY (Sophie MEYER) 1744 Neuwiller, living in 1808 in
Neuwiller, married 6 March 1764 Neuwiller to Naftaly (Hirschel) Joseph 1727
Minversheim - between 1784 and 1808 Neuwiller, retail merchant

3) Arje (Juda, Leib) Meyer LEVY Neuwiller, married 1 February 1770
Neuwiller to Gelle Eliezer LEVY Niederbronn

4) Beile Meyer LEVY 1744 Neuwiller, married 1. 7 November 1764 Oberbronn to
Nesanel (Samuel) KAHN Oberbronn - before 1773, married 2. 24 February 1773
Ingwiller to Marx (Mordekhay) Siessel BRAUNSCHWEIG 1740 Hegenheim, retail
merchant

5) Dina Meyer LEVY (Cecile MEYER) Neuwiller, living in 1784 and 1808 in
Haguenau, married 8 March 1753 Pfaffenhoffen to Aron Meir MOCH Haguenau -
between 1784 and 1804, teacher

I am interested in data on the descendants of all of these people. I am not listing here the names of Baruch's known children, but their families,
of course, also interest me.

My relative of mine was buried in NYC between 1900-1912 at Bay Side
Cemetery, according to family letters.

I cannot find any listings for Bay Side. I tried looking in the NYC
directory of 1910 as well. Would anyone know where Bay Side is located in
New York City?

Dear Group,

Regarding the recent exchange about the name Ira:

<< It was certainly not a common Hebrew/Yiddish name ... it was probably
an 'American' version of some more common Hebrew/Yiddish name made up
for someone who never was in the US. >>

It is not a "Hebrew/Yiddish name" at all, whatever that may be, but a
Hebrew name.

--------snip-------

By the way, it dawned on me that one of the reasons that Ira may have a
rare name in Eastern Europe is because it ends with an "a" -- a feminine
ending. When I write to the state Archives in Poland, I always get
addressed as "Mrs." on their return letters (although I have been called
worse...) Of course, it may have been unpopular long before we reached
Eastern Europe (which is my gut feeling).
The gender confusion on the part of 20th century Poles results >from
the fact that they speak an Indo-European language that tends to end
feminine names with "A", and they write in Latin characters.
Polish/Russian Jews in most of the 19th century, and certainly in the
18th, would have thought of the name in its Hebrew spelling: 'Ayin Yod
Resh Alef, which carries no feminine marker at all.

I am not sure how to assess the attitude toward a name as of 500 or
1000 years ago. My gut gives me no clue.

I am Barbara Meyers and have been Jewishgenning for nearly three years.
I am researching the following names >from the areas of Bialystok, Bielsk and Krynki: ALK, KAFLOWITZ and HIRSCH (any spelling of HIRSCH). My antecedents go way back in these areas and I am wondering if any of these names might sound familiar to anyone in the group?

Chana HIRSCH, my maternal great-grandmother died sometime approximately between 1900 and about 1906 leaving behind her husband, my ggrandfather, Jacob KAFLOWITZ and five or six young children, the youngest being about 3 months old. He remarried about six months later to a woman named Yudes and together they had a son named Solomon. They settled on NYC's lower east side eventually.

Best of luck to this new site which for me, has been a long

JRI Poland #Poland Scheime = JEnny?? #poland

Caughlan - Kevin M. <caughlan@...>
 

Hi all. I may have found my grandmother's arrival record, but I'm a bit
confused about one of the passengers. Her niece's name was Jenny or
Jeanette later in life, but she is listed on the passenger manifest as
Scheime. Is anyone familiar with that name and how it might be
translated?

Thanks, Jenny Caughlan in Kensington, MD

MODERATOR'S NOTE: The name is most likely Scheine -- pronounced Shayna. Although it would literally translate as "pretty," many immigrant women with that name took the name "Jenny" because "Shaney" and "Jennie" have a similar sound."

Re: Bay Side Cemetery #general

Dear Robert,
Bayside cemetery is located on Pitkin Avenue in Queens NY. When you call
(as I did in trying to locate information about a relative) they will
refer you to Lolita at a Manhatten number. You must have the date of
death in order for Lolita to look up the plot number, organization name
etc. They do not have records listed by name.
When I went there in May the cemetery was in terrible condition, with
over-turned monuments, inaccessible paths, overgrowth of ivy etc. The
Mormons had made arrangements to come in the following weekend to work on
clearing it. I haven't been back since. Hope this helps.
