County, Bayonne, NJ in late 1890s. Married Dora ROTHSTEIN (b. 1877),
daughter of Bayonne residents and Russian immigrants Charles and Nettie
ROTHSTEIN, in 1897. They had four sons: George, Mayer ("Mike"), Harry and Barney
("Ben") who all continued residence in Bayonne.

Dora ROTHSTEIN died at age 35 in April, 1912 in Bayonne.
Sam EISENBERG died at approx. age 90 in July 1960 in Jersey City.

I've had luck with U.S. census records, but little else. Sam's a real man of
mystery, so thanks for any help!

Translation #hungary

I just received information regarding my gggrandfather, Israel Korngut (b.
1824 in Pilchov), living in Circ, Slovakia in 1875. According to a birth
record received >from the archives in Slovakia: the child's first name is
listed as Eliasz Godel Korngut (b. 12-4-1875 in Circ). Mother is Temma
Korngut, with no father's name listed. "Godparent" is Moses Goldberger.
Under notes it states: "Graus Vater Israel Korngut". What does "Graus
Vater" refer to? Could this be "grandfather"?
Any input is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Yehoash or Heibish #lithuania

Chaim freedman
 

I am trying to trace families which had the rare Hebrew firstname Yehoash.
In most cases the name underwent a transition to Heibish, Hoibish. In
Russian records it appears as Gevush. In Polish records it appears as
Hovsha, although I am not entirely convinced that the same form may have
been used for Yehoshua.

In particular one of my wife's ancestors appears in the 1816 Revision List
for Ludza (Lutzin): Shmuel Super (born 1781) with the patronymic Gevush. He
had a son Yankel-Heibish born 1834 and a grandson Yosef-Yehoash born about
1835.

There is a tradition that the family Super were Soferim and may have
originated in Vilna or Linkuva. In Ludza they were also Liquor dealers
and butchers.

I have searched the 18th Vilna censuses (thanks to David
Hoffman's Jewish Family History Foundation) and whilst I
have found several Howshas, none suits the family configuration,
particularly in association with another common family name Tuviah
(variously Tevel, Guttman, Guta).

I would like to hear >from anyone in the Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus regions
who may have some connection with these names.

Re: Jewish Family Reunion made Possible Through Home Movies #general

Eli - Coincidentally, I've just read an article in today's Sun Sentinel, entitled
History Mystery - written by Staff Correspondent Nick Bogert, who is also a
reporter for WTVJ-Ch 6 in Miami-Dade County, Florida.
It is the very article you mention - covering the story of the brother and sister
who were reunited after 15 years.
However, included in the background of the story is information about "the Florida
Moving Image Archive, where people have been bringing their own family movies,
which are preserved and made available to scholars, researchers and filmmakers".

In a recent message in the Discussion Group a JewishGenner asked the question
about what to do with family files, etc. after she was gone. The article is a
typical example of solving her quandary!
