Atlantic City #general

Rabbi Ben-Zion Saydman <ravbenzi@...>
 

Dear Genners:

No matter what I try, I cannot seem to find much information about my
maternal grandfather's family. This is what I do know: Louis NEWMAN was
born in Russia, supposedly immigrated to Philadelphia and died before 1933,
location unknown. Louis married Rose RODOFF, daughter of Jacob and Esther
RODOFF. Louis and Rose NEWMAN had the following children: Herman, born
2/20/1893; Max, born 4/8/1898; and Sylvia, born 1/31/1901. Max and Sylvia's
death certificates say they were born in Philadelphia, however I can find no
trace of them. All of the children lived in Atlantic City at some point.
In fact, Max owned a bar and grill on the boardwalk. Max married Mary
WERNER of Philadelphia in 1933. Herman, Max and Sylvia Newman are buried at
Beth Kehillah cemetery in Pleasantville, outside of Atlantic City.

I have not been able to locate this family in any census. Aside >from two
death certificates and Max's wedding license, I have not been able to find
additional records. Max's wedding license states that he and his mother,
Rose, lived at 126 Dewey Place in Atlantic City, NJ in 1933 just prior to
the wedding. However, I couldn't find them at that location in 1930. All
of the RODOFFS I contacted were dead ends. Very frustrating. It almost
seems as if they are hiding >from me.

If anyone out there is familiar with these names, or if there is an Atlantic
City maven reading this, kindly contact me.

Web Database to build DNA Family Trees #general

Alex Bachrach <alex_bachrachnospam@...>
 

Hi Genners,

Thought this >from AP would interest the forum:

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — In what could be the modest beginnings of a worldwide
genetic family tree, a Utah genealogy foundation has created an interactive
database of genetic and genealogical samples which the public can access and
contribute to in hopes of finding lost ancestors.
The Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation, established by Utah billionaire
James Sorenson, has created a free Web site that allows interested members
of the public to input their own DNA information into an existing database.

Entire article available at:

books on shtetl life in Bessarabia and Romania #romania

AliceKaderlan@...
 

I will be travelling to Moldova and Romania next month and want to
background myself in Jewish life around the turn of the last century
when my grandparents were living in Bessarabia and Romania.
The specific places I will be visiting and where I had grandparents
or great aunts and uncles are: Corjeuti, Briceni, Edinet, Chisinau
(all in Moldova), and Falticeni, Romania. The places >from which these
families originated or had branches are: Sokiryany (Sekurany) Sniatyn,
and Dolina.

What are the best books to read on Jewish life in these areas at the
time my grandparents lived?

The REIS(S) family of Hoerstein in Unterfranken #germany

Ralph N. Baer <RalphNBaer@...>
 

My fourth great-grandmother Madel REUSS (REIS, REISS) was born about 1762 in
Hoerstein in Unterfranken (Lower Franconia, part of Bavaria). Hoerstein is
now part of Alzenau. She died on 23 December 1829 in Grosskrotzenburg near
Hanau. Her husband was Simon SCHMIDT (about 1767 Grosskrotzenburg - 17
October 1839 Grosskrotzenburg). The SCHMIDTs of Grosskrotzenburg were the
subject of an earlier query.

Madel's birth family name on Grosskrotzenburg documents reads REUSS.
Actually, she was married before her family adopted a family name, and thus
she did not really have a family name herself.

Hoerstein records do not mention a family called REUSS, but the name
REISS/REIS is present. I strongly suspect that this is her family. Two men
who probably were her brothers are:

1) Loeser (Lazarus) REIS about 1767 - 27 November 1837 Hoerstein, cattle
trader and laborer, married to Gutrod ... about 1778 - 4 October 1838
Hoerstein

2) Simon (Samson) REIS 1774 Hoerstein - 20 November 1835 Hoerstein, grocer,
married 1. to Sprinz ... about 1775 - 2 March 1823 Hoerstein, married 2. 9
August 1824 to Rosina MICHEL 1782 Thalmaessing - 15 December 1843 Hoerstein

I am very interested in any information about these people, their ancestors,
descendants, and siblings. I am also very interested in earlier information
about Hoerstein which may help me prove the link to my family.

There also was in Hoerstein two people who I cannot connect with certainty
to the above: a cattle trader Herz REIS, married to Naennel GRUENEBAUM, who
probably was a son of Loeser, as well as Gutel REIS who probably was a
daughter of Simon. I have very limited additional data.

Joseph WIMPFHEIMER family in Philadelphia 1870 #germany

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

Today, I found the following family in the US Federal Censuses of 1860 and 1870
for Philadelphia, Pennsylvania:

Joseph WIMPFHEIMER born 1825 (Germany, maybe Bavaria)
Emma WIMPFHEIMER (born either 1826 in Germany, as is
recorded in 1860, or 1825 in Austria, as is recorded in 1870)
Bertha WIMPFHEIMER born 1847 in Germany (1860): she is not mentioned in 1870.
Adeline WIMPFHEIMER born 1850 or 1852 in Pennsylvania.

Can any one throw any more light on this family for me?
