Seinwel name in Hungary #general

jan meisels allen <janmallen@...>
 

I have the name Seinwel REICH >from Hungary-born about 1800 on a birth record
listed as father of a cousin. I am trying to find the "alternate"' names
for Seinwel, and I don't find it on the Given Names Index on Jewish Gen or
in the Beider Book of Given Names. Could Seinwel also be Shmuel Zev or?
As the families on this branch intermarried several times I am trying to see
if he could be my second great grandfather

Thank you for any assistance you may give me.

I have replied privately to this query but thought the following site might
be useful to anyone else researching relatives who served in the Australian
forces in any war. Individual service records can be digitalised (you can
request via email on the site) and viewed via the net. Many have already
been processed and can be viewed immediately. There is usually lots of
information about next of kin, details of service, far more detailed records
for those who were wounded or killed in action.
The Australian Archives site is

I wonder if anyone has these names on their family trees. I should like to
establish that they were Jews. Two brothers, ALfred MARKS and Lionel MARKS,
were killed in action within three days of each other (on 25 and 28 April 1915)
at the start of the ill-fated Gallipoli campaign, in the First Battle of Krithia.
Nether body was recovered so there are no gravestones and they are instead
commemorated on memorials. Alfred served in the Border Regiment and Lionel was in
the Australian Imperial Force.

Their father was Louis Joseph MARKS of 88 Fenchurch Street, London, EC, and
later of 11 Oxford Circus, Noting HIll, London (but I cannot locate that street.)

I should be very glad to have any information about them or their family.

Dear Genners,

I have received >from Poland 2 birth records in Russian >from 1871 and 1880 -

his grandfather, the other probably a cousin - as both have the same 'given
names' - a tradition of the family. I would appreciate a translation of
these records, which can be viewed at the following Viewmate addresses (Nos.

Jewish Homesteader Book #general

Connie Fisher Newhan
 

I recently read "Rachel Calof's Story: Jewish Homesteader on the Northern Plains."
Calof came to the US >from Kiev in 1894 to marry a man she had never met. For the
next 23 years she lived on a farm in North Dakota. Though I don't have family in
that area, I found the book to be quite interesting as it explored Jewish farm
settlement and about Calof's experiences >from Kiev to farming and raising a Jewish
family.
The book is published by Indiana University Press, c. 1995. I have no financial
interests in this book.

Re: "Russians to America" and "Ancestry Ship Lists" #general

Sally M. Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

Any index will be only as good as the indexer. And two different
organizations reading difficult originals will come up with different
answers. That is why you look yourself whenever possible!

I once looked at the records indexed by an 'very careful' publication which
indexed the records of a town and found 3 births for my surname. When I
looked at the records themselves, there were clearly 6 births and a *marriage*
from which I got my 3d gr grandfather's name and my 2nd gr grandmother's
name. Obviously, the 'very careful' missed 4 of 7 records.

It happens all the time.

Dear Group,

I believe my great grandparents were married in Konskie, Poland in either
1875 or 1876. These two years were not filmed by the LDS and are not
available through JRI-Poland's on line service. Consequentley I would
like to attempt writing to the Polish State Archives.

Before doing so, I would like to confirm which archive to write to.
I believe it is Kielce, but have not located an exact address. Also,
is there an e-mail address available?

Your help is most appreciated. Private reply, please, unless you feel
this has value to the group.
