I'm having difficulty determining the correct name for a town or city that
might have been in Ukraine or Russia. On The Ellis Island Data Base a
Joseph RUDICK arriving in New York City 1911 Lists his residence as Dublin
Ireland & his city of birth as Feline or Feiline, Russia. His son Isaac
RUDICK arriving earlier that year also lists Dublin Ireland as residence
but then write for city of birth Feline Lepland Russia. Is this an illegible
spelling for annother town or some place that might have a new name? I can't
find it on any maps. Any suggestions welcome. TIA

Howard,

Fellin is the German name for town Viljandi located in part of Estonia known
as Livland.

Re: Help- Baron Hirsch Cem (Staten Island NY) #general

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

I know this has been said before, but where do you live?

I have had people request I go to cemeteries to take photographs for them
when they lived much closer than I do.

I would appreciate if anyone is going to the Baron Hirsch Cemetery on
Staten Island NYC, and can look up a tombstone for me. I am interested in
the father's name (Hebrew or English, whatever is on the stone) for Isaac
Krassner. He died in 1931. Thanks for any help- Jerry Krassner

trying to find a San Diego business #general

Dear Fellow Jewishgenners,

I am trying to locate the owner of a business in San Diego. It is evident
the business does not exist any longer.

The business was called Nancy MOHR Fine Jewelry. I am trying to locate
Nancy MOHR.

I will be very willing to swap by doing a New York search if the responder
so wishes.

Thank you very much in advance.

Sincerely,

Finding a business in the 1929 Polish Business Directory #poland

Hazanjo <hazanjo@...>
 

OK...I've given this a try on my own. Either the information isn't in this
directory or I'm going about it the wrong way. My Aunt asked me to find an
address for my Great Grandfather's (Israel Joseph (Yasoff Srol)Kanet) place
of business in Czyzewo, Poland. He was a Tsitzasmacher. He left for the US
in 1930 leaving the business to his son-in-law. I assumed that this meant
his place of business would be in the 1929 Directory, but so far I've had no
luck. I'd appreciate any help or guidance.

Thanks,

Re: Naming children after deceased children #poland

Gary Mokotoff (Optonline) <garymokotoff@...>
 

David Edelman asked if a child dies at a very young age, do Jews name the
very next child after the deceased child.

Jews of the mid-19th century were very superstitious. It is more likely that
the name would not be used because of the fear that the new child would
suffer the fate of the first one.

In the Mokotow family, the "founder" of the family, who was highly revered,
died in 1842. The first male child in the family to be born after the death
of the founder was named after him. Unfortunately the child died at age six
months. The name was not reused for 15 years!!

are searching they were 2 separate papers.Also check the Herald American.
