Lithuania, both the small present-day country as well as the much larger
former kingdom, is Lite in Yiddish, accented on the first syllable.
Mikhoyel B.

Litvaks are Jews >from 'Litte' (last sylable pronounced eh) which
translates
as Lithuania,
The proper spelling is LITVA (Lit-va). The land spread >from the Baltic Sea
to the Black Sea, and included much of what we know as Belarus today.
The Lithuania of today was then known as Lituva.

MENDELOVICH family from Byten #belarus

Alan Tapper <sabaalan@...>
 

Hi,

I am looking for the descendants of Shmuel Meyer MENDELOVICH >from Byten.
Shmuel had five sons with his wife, Chaya, that I am aware of: Michael,
Benjamin, Naphtali, Gabriel and Nachum. Benjamin was the youngest of the
brothers born in the 1870's. Shmuel may also have had another family >from a
previous wife as he was born in 1808 and died in 1913.

In particular, I am looking to make contact with descendants of Michael,
Gabriel or Naphtali. I believe that some of Gabriel's descendants live in
Israel.

Re: Castle Garden #belarus

Hi, Belarus-ers,

Just for clarification, Castle Garden is at the
southern tip of Manhattan. Original built 60 feet off
the tip, land-fill in the 1850s made it part of
Manhattan island. One takes the ferry to the Statue
of Liberty/Ellis Island >from this point. It was
originally a fort, a battery, but has been many things
since. I don't think it was large enough to use as an
immigration processing center after 1890 without
expanding into Manhattan proper and that's why the
Federal Government elected to develop Ellis Island.
[Or why New York State and New York City weren't
receptive to the idea.;-)]

Two good web-sites to understand what and where Castle
Garden was/is are:

http://www.nps.gov/cacl/
http://gorp.away.com/gorp/resource/US_nm/ny_castl.htm

I have no commercial interest in GORP nor the National
Parks Service.

Naturalization Records from New York City #ukraine

After a long search, I finally found my great grandfather listed in the
naturalization index with a more anglasized first name. It was in the US
District Court, NY, NY. He was naturalized on Jan 27, 1898. I have the
volume and record number. Does anyone know how I may be able to obtain a
copy of the naturalization record and the Declaration of Intent? Can this be
done online?

Thanks.

Dear GerSigers
In the book "Forgotten Fragments" (Genealogy of the Levitic Fraenkel family,
Muenchen, 1999) by the two Danish authors Louis and Henry Fraenkel, the following
genealogical relation is described:

YOM-TOV LIPMAN HELLER (Tosfot Yom-Tov) b.1579, d.1654
His son, JUDAH LIEBERMN d.1631
His son SIMON SIEMELS d.1632
His daughter, VITTORIA (d.1640) married YAAKOV KOPPEL
HALEVI FRAENKEL (d.1670, the richest Jew in the Vienna Ghetto).
Vittoria died in 1640 after giving birth to two daughters.
Chronologically it is impossible that VITTORIA was the great grand
daughter of TOSFOT YOM-TOV.
Does anybody of you have additional information as to a

YAAKOV KOPPEL HALEVI FRAENKEL ? Thanks
