A few years ago I found in a dusty text book at Jews
College in London, a short reference to some
instructions given by Oliver Cromwell in and around 1650,
for two Jewish East End clerks to go to the garrison
town of Cork to investigate corruption in the
accounts of the food stores there. I was unable to
discover what they found or what they reported back
to him.
Were they the first to settle in the South of Ireland?

searching for my family: Gombin - Poland , Sprenglingen - Germany #general

Kruveet k <kruveet@...>
 

I just joined JewishJen. I just started my genealogy research and I
could use any help I get.

I am searching for information about the FINKELSTEIN family that moved
from Gombin (Gabin in polish) Poland to Sprenglingen, Germany at the
end of 1800 and lived there till the Second World War.
The head of the family was called Abraham FINKELSTEIN and his wife was
Sara. I know he was in his 60-70 during the Second World War but she
died before it so she might be buried in Sprenglingen. Their son
Yehuda Dov (Bernhart) was married to Chaya (Anna) ROSENTHAL from
Frankfurt.

If anyone can tell me if there are lists or where can I find
information or documents: birth, burial, marriage (Yehuda Dov
/Bernhart and Chaya /Anna probably were married there). Are there any
Jewish documents of the congregations that were saved like Ktoobot?

Thank you all
Chagit Finkelstein

Dear Fellow Genners:

Can anyone tell me how to find 5632 Clark Street, Montreal, QC in the 1911
Canadian Census? I will appreciate any help.
http://www.genealogy.gc.ca/10/1011_e.html gives research tips how to
identify the ward in which a person lived by looking at the street index at
the front of published city directories (see
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/canadiandirectories/index-e.html)

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal says in their website that they
can't give help in looking up records but suggests you contact the Quebec
Family History Society http://www.cam.org/%7Eqfhs/index.html.

Their website says that they can do research for you, and it would be
relatively for them to consult maps or inform you what district your address
was in in 1911.

If you want to know how I can answer such an enquiry >from the UK, I worked
for 15 years in the Population Statistics Group of the Greater London
Council, I was a Census Enumerator in London in 1981, and I have looked up
the records of my own family originally >from maps in 1881.

Having said that I am not volunteering to do research for JewishGenners, not
because I want to be unhelpful as I have to earn a living.

had a tailor shop in Brest & they came together. I don't think our real last
mane was Prince. Does anyone know how to pronounce the word for Prince in
Russian, Polish, Yiddish? Just a long shot.

Tombstone Translation Wanted #general

Ralph Baer <baer@...>
 

I am interested in a translation of the Hebrew portion of the inscription on
the tombstone that I have posted on Viewmate
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html as VM6564. The direct link is
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6564. The stone
marks the grave of Anschel (Anselm) MAIER (MAYER, MEYER) in the Wiesloch,
Baden cemetery. Anschel was born on 1 October 1779, in Nussloch according to
Berthold Rosenthal (collection at the Leo Baeck Institute). He died on 12
June 1854 in Rohrbach bei Heidelberg (now Heidelberg-Rohrbach).

My primary interest is in finding out what it says about Anschel's father
because I have some question, due to the birth in Nussloch, if he is really
related to me and the other MAYERs and MAIERs in Rohrbach despite the fact
that Rosenthal does fit him into my family. Supposedly, his father was Moses
MAIER (20 October 1752 Rohrbach - 28 April 1824 Rohrbach), son of Mayer
Moses (about 1730 Rohrbach - 13 August 1807 Rohrbach). The latter was my
4th-great grandfather.

Thanks to Alex Calzareth who sent me the picture.

Dear Genners,

If anyone can help to translate this Polish document
(Viewmate VM6562) I'll be truly grateful. It's a typed
transcription (no need to decipher handwriting!) of
family records in the Plock, Poland archives. I don't
understand a word of Polish.

Thanks very much in advance,

This Is To Explain In Futher Detail About Wedding Pics Posted Of June 1949 #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello To All

Apparently my other previous posting is already gone so my recent
posting is not clear cut enough. I will explain again that I do not
know where my grandparents wedding took place. I am assuming it took
place somewhere in Brooklyn, New York. My grandparents lived there many
years. My grandmother was born in brooklyn. My grandfather was born in
poland. So he obviously met my grandmother in new york hence where they
got married. So please don't send me any more emails telling me to be
more clear. I want emails >from people who think they can recognize whos
in these photo's regardless of where they taken. If I knew where they
were taken I would have definately put that in my posting.

I have looked at the above webpage and whilst it would appear that the
Hebrew is still recognisable, it would be probably easier to recognise if it
was transcribed >from the original photo.

The photo seems to be taken into the sunlight thus making it very difficult
to make out the carvings >from the webpage.
