JG tips: Surname lists #general

Barbara Niederhoff <iamthewind@...>
 

Hello again, I know it's been a long time. Let's blame procrastination.
;)

Our tip today was inspired by some recent feedback on the lists of
surnames that come after a poster's signature. These lists are much
appreciated by other readers; one even told us that while he doesn't read
many messages, he always looks for surname lists. On the other hand, I
know someone who doesn't use a surname list because it results in too
many requests for information (she has some pretty common names). And
that's the proof of its usefulness -- these lists do catch people's
attention, so if you are looking for connections, make and save a simple
file to add to your posts. Your e-mail program may have a "signature
file" option that can be used this way.

JewishGen's basic guideline is that after your signature, you may add a
list up to *six lines long* of any surnames that you're searching for.
Include the surnames most important to your search right now. If you're
just starting out, there should be room for everything! Countries and
towns that they came >from are helpful, especially for common names. We
like the surnames to be in all capital letters so that they stand out for
the readers. All place names and other words should just be typed
normally, as they would appear in a sentence. This way, it will be clear
to everyone what the surnames are, and it makes scanning easier.

The six-line rule is purely arbitrary -- there had to be a limit, and
someone decided, way back when, that six lines would be it (by the way,
our lines are 65 characters long). The reasons for the limit are to save
bandwidth and make the digests easy to scan. If you have more than six
lines worth to share, consider splitting your lists into separate files
to rotate.

I'll include my own list below, for a change, but I warn you that I have
precious little to offer beyond what you read here! Someday I'll chip
through those brick walls.

Michael SANDMAN, Long Island, NY > Middletown, NY Asylum #usa

Bonnie Birns
 

Dear Genners,

Michael SANDMAN, born in Prussia around 1820, came to
the United States about 1850. He had a clothing store
in Glen Cove, Long Island, NY. (Town of Oyster Bay,
first in Queens County, then in Nassau County)

Abstracted >from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle:
10/14/1890 p.1 M. Sandman, having been pronounced
insane, will be taken to the state hospital at
Middletown.

12/21/1890 p.14 Michael Sandman, Glen Cove, died in
the asylum at Middleton, October last leaving estate
valued at $10,000. First wife had 3 children Morris,
Henry, Nancy Sandman. Second wife had 5 children, all
living. Left all real estate to widow, children from
first marriage contesting.

My questions are:
1) Where would Michael SANDMAN likely be buried?
Would he be left at the asylum in Middletown, or would
a wealthy man be brought home to be buried on Long Island?

2) Should there be court documents regarding the
contested will somewhere on Long Island? What would
be the most likely location to find them?

Thank you for your help.

seeking Rhona WEINBERG FEINGOLD #germany

Joan Rimmon
 

Dear GERSIGGERS,
At present I am trying to find any descendant of a cousin who appeared
in the 1910, 1920 and 1930 censuses. And there I am at a blank wall. Her name
was Rhona WEINBERG and she married Herman FEINGOLD sometime in the period of
1926 and 1930. They lived in New York in 1930 on 44th street. I know she had
children [>from family lore] and Herman was an insurance agent.
If this sounds familiar to anybody, please contact me at

Max Katten Books on Bamberg and Upper Franconia Jews #germany

MBernet@...
 

David, at Sol2516171, informs me that the CD-Rom of digital-graphics copies
of the family trees of the Jews of the Bamberg area, prepared (but not
completed) by Rabbi Katten of Bamberg in 1930-39, is now available >from the
Central Archives of the History of the Jewish People in Jerusalem,
tel 02-563-5716 < archives@vms.huji.ac.il >, for US $35, including postage.

I photographed this volume of trees for the Central Archives in April 2002.
The archives also own other volumes that Katten produced in his work.
Perhaps someone will arrange to digitally photograph some or all of the other
volumes for the archives (they are too fragile for scanning or photocopying).
Working in tandem with my son, Ilan, we were able to photograph this huge volume
(20+" x 15+") at the rate of some 40 pages an hour.

At some point it might be possible to form a group to put all the material
together and create a digitalized, searchable database covering the Jews from
the Bamberg area (and many beyond).>from the 16th to the 20th centuries.

Sophie BIRN KLEIN, Estenfeld, Bavaria > Norden, Niedersachsen #germany

Bonnie Birns
 

Dear Genners,

I was finally able to make contact with a Genner who
posted to the FTJP last year. This is my only lead on
the sister of my ggg-gfather.

Sophie BIRN, born Estenfeld bei Wurzburg, Bavaria,
Germany, June 26, 1842 or 1843 married N. KLEIN. This
I already knew.

The new information is that she died January 15, 1920
in Norden. I was told that this town is at the North
Sea, near Emden and Aurich. I looked this up to be
Niedersachsen.

Would it be possible to get a death certificate or any
other proof of her existence >from Norden? I am not
familiar with researching in Niedersachsen and do not
know how or where to begin. I would appreciate any
assisitance you could give. Thanks for you help.

Hello - if you are unable to find someone on GerSIG to to look up this
information, do contact the St. Louis Public Library. They have an "Ask

The St. Louis Public Library also has several genealogy databases and
files on-line! They helped me obtain a St. Louis burial permit notice
and American citizenship papers for a relative.

i have recently found out that my ancestors belonged

(White Chapel, perhaps?). Apparently, my gg-uncle
Abraham GLASSMAN was very active in this synagogue.

i'm wondering if this synagogue still exists today,
and if not, if the old records >from this synagogue
