Searching for the family of Nina LEVY from England #general

Daniel Gee <DanielGee@...>
 

Dear Genners,
If you have the name LEVY in your family files,
please can you help? Can you check your notes to see if any
of the following names appear...
I am looking for the daughters of Alf and Jessie Levy;
Nina, Norma & Barbara.
The siblings would have been born in the mid to late
1930s in London, so they would now be in their mid 60s.
The problem, is that their surnames will have changed
if they married.
Any of advice would be much appreciated.
Happy Pesach!
Daniel Gleek in London

Webber / Rosenberg #general

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

Just learned today that my mom's first cousin Jacob
Rosenberg b. 1892 IL, Parents Sarah Singman Rosenberg and
Max or Morris Rosenberg may have married In Boston to
Anne Webber or Weber, a jewish woman >from Halifax,
Nova Scotia.

from 1919 on he was in the US Navy and around the
1920s on a ship that docked at Halifax, NS for repairs.
He was invited to join a Jewish family where he met the
daughter Anne Webber. Then he was in a nightclub in Boston
in which the floor collapsed and his leg was smashed
( I would hope this made the Boston papers) and Anne went
to Boston to visit him. They may have Married there around
1924-1927 as the l930 US Census in New London, CT
has them living there near the US Coast Guard Academy and
being married four years. Actually, he was in the census
at the Coast GuardAcademy and was the enumerator for
the entire ED.

They had no children and he was in the Navy all his
life and probably retired as a Commander. Upon retirement he
lived in Washington DC and died in Dec. 1961.

I am interested in finding their marriage certificate
in Boston and would be happy to swap a search for anyone
interested in a vital record in the NYC archives.

Rabbi Mayer S. ABROMOWITZ-Rabbinical personalities in New England #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

I know the chance is slim but:

My grandfather, Rabbi Chaim Yitzchak ABRAMOWITZ (1895-1964),
son of Meyer ABRAMOWITZ (d. 1917),of Jerusalem, emmigrated
to Hartford , Ct. around 1926/1928.

Is anyone out there who know the genealogy of the
Rabbi Mayer S. ABROMOWITZ, -not the same as the above-who
may know of a connection between the two ABRAMOWITZ's?

Hi there everyone,
Hag Sameach!
I wonder if anyone out there could help me with
information about going about finding death and/or
burial dates in Switzerland and Italy - more
specifically, Lugano and Turin. I presume the best
would be if there are websites or e-mail addresses of
the relevant organizations.
I look forward to any help possible,

Seeking HALF Lauterbourg, Bas-Rhine>USA & more #usa

Fred Half <fredhalf@...>
 

I am submitting this name list to the Early American, French, and German SIGs
for reasons that I hope are clear >from the narrative that follows later.

I have been a member of all the SIGs for some time but am just getting around to
posting my list. I have been researching my family sporadically for about 10 years
and consider myself knowledgeable in genealogy search techniques. I have extensive
internet and computer research skills. I can read French and can communicate in
French at a basic level.

Some of my ancestors have have been in the US since the mid 1830s (all four of my
grandparents and three of my eight great grandparents were born in the US),the rest
arrived by the 1870s. Their origins are predominately Bas-Rhine, Bavaria, and
Western Poland (around Wroclaw). I have a lot of anecdotal information and am
starting to collect actual copies of birth, marriage, and death records.

I am interested in determining the actual entry points and ships records for my
ancestors as well as tracing their history back as far as possible.

I believe that the surname HALF existed prior to 1808 and was associated with the
HALFF name in Lauterbourg, Bas-Rhine.

Also the SIDENBERG name was SEIDENBERG in Wroclaw (Breslau) and changed upon
arrival to the United States.

I have much data and I am trying to trace the movements of the families both to the
United States and within the US.

My paternal grandparents were Morris HALF b 28 June 1872 Athens, Ohio and Carolyn
ISRAEL b 16 March 1874 Waterloo, Iowa. Their parents were Isaac HALF b 17 July 1842
Haguenau, Bas-Rhine, Eva SELIG b 15 December 1841 Rothbach, Aaron ISRAEL
b 11 March 1835 Romanswiller, Bas-Rhine, Betty EINSTEIN b 1845 Hagerstown, MD.

My maternal grandparents were Alfred OPPENHEIMER b 28 September 1873 Allegheny, PA
and Edna SIDENBERG b 27 February 1888 Milwaukee, WI. Their parents were Moses
OPPENHEIMER b 25 September 1840 Germany and Julia FRANK b 7 September 1851
Pittsburgh, PA, and Hugo SEIDENBERG b 23 November 1856 Wroclaw (Breslau)
Poland and Mollie RICH b 1 May 1862 Cleveland, OH.

Anyone who has any connections with these families, please contact me privately.

SCHEIER from Berlin #germany

I am seeking information regarding my SCHEIER relatives >from Berlin,
Germany. My maternal grandmother's brother was David SCHEIER who married
Clara ROBINSOHN. They are originally >from Sucha-Beskidzka and Bielsko-Biala
in Poland. I know that David SCHEIER and his wife lived for many years in
Berlin, Germany (where my uncle, Kurt SCHEIER, was born), and there is a
possibility that other brothers of David SCHEIER also lived in Berlin or
nearby prior or during WWII. In particular, I am seeking information
regarding Max SCHEIER and Samuel SCHEIER, and any other information about
their family members. As far as I know, all siblings of David SCHEIER were
born in Sucha-Beskidzka, Poland (formerly Sucha, Poland).

Please contact me if you have any information regarding this SCHEIER family.

Visit to Warsaw and Pultusk,Poland #general

Alice Josephs
 

In addition to Jodie Binstock's previous posting on tips
for a visit to Poland and Lithuania, I also have the
same sort of query.

A cousin is going on a business trip to Warsaw mid
May and wishes to visit the ancestral shtetl of Pultusk
has asked for any tips,genealogically-speaking.

1) What Jewish genealogical resources are there in Warsaw?
What are the procedures for getting in touch with and
getting the maximum possible (in a limited time!) >from the
Jewish Historical Institute, for example?

2) Can anyone who has visited the Polish State Archives
explain what are the procedures for seeing records.
Can one contact them in advance so that they have
records available? Is it better to write or phone?

3) Is there anybody they can recommend as a good guide to the
genealogical resources and Jewish sites in Pultusk
(which is not far >from Warsaw)?

4) I have some information on Pultusk >from listers on
the Pultusk mailing list at Yahoo! Groups -
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/J-Pultusk/
This includes the fact that apparently some museums
in Pultusk have some Jewish gravestones. However previous
letters sent to these museums have elicited no reply.
Are there any tips anyone can give for trying to get
information on these and any other artifacts they may hold?

In short if anyone can give me any information and tips,
I'd really appreciate it. Please contact me privately unless
your mailing is of genealogical interest for the
Jewishgen mailing list.
