Finding someone only knowing their maiden name. #general

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Is there any way in which one can find a person by only knowing their maiden
name?

On an Ellis Island record I have the woman's name and to whom she was going
in Philadelphia in 1921. It is thought she married a Mr X and had a daughter
called X - yet I cannot fathom a way to find details about her as it is
believed she and her husband moved to Chicago.

I have tried soundex of the supposedly married name but no success, either
in the SSDI and census'.

All ideas most welcome.

Thank you.

Yakov "Cohen" & Nechama-Rachel(nee Eisenthal) Cernivici/Dorohoi #general

Maly & Ofer Cohen
 

Shalom!

We are looking for information about Yakov "COHEN" >from Cernivici
(Tschernowitz, Chernivitsi), Bukovina (now Ukraine); and for Nechama -
Rachel, nee EISENTHAL (AISENTHAL) >from Dorohoi, Romania.

Yakov was born in 1864 and had been living in Cernivici. He was a Cohen
(we don't know if this is his "real" family name). Yakov's father was
Yehudah. Yakov's brother was Shraga-Feiwel. Yakov was practiced as a
Tora scribe (*Sofer Stam*). His nickname was "Yankele Soifer". Yakov had
married and after ten years with no children he divorced and got
marriage again with Nechama-Rachel >from Dorohoi. *This is the only information
we have !*

Nechama-Rachel (nee Eisenthal) was born in Dorohoi, Romania in about
1875. Nechama's father was Asher-Anshel, and her mother was a midwife.
Nechama's brother was Michael-Mechel. She got marriage with Yakov, and
when became pregnant they immigrated to Eretz-Israel. Nechama's mother,
the midwife, followed her daughter and son-in-low to Eretz-Israel. The
three had arrived to the Hauran (the new Jewish settlements) in 1896 and
later settled in the Upper Galilee (Rosh-Pinna). Since then the family
is has been living in Israel.

We don't have any additional information for the family ancestors in
Romania or in Bukovina. We found connections with some Eisenthal
families >from Dorohoi, had immigrated to Israel after WW2, but couldn't
find any real evidences for Yakov and Nechama. For Yakov's origin, it is
very difficult to solve the mystery, as we don't know even his real
family name!

If any of the above names or "story" rings a bell for you, please let us
know!
We will appreciate any additional advice or information, which will lead
to the above persons in Cernovici or Dorohoi.

Many thanks in advance,

Meir Cohen. Petach-Tikva, Israel.

Connecting to distant cousins #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

I've written on this before but I'll elaborate:

Several months ago I requested members of this group to put me in touch with
Allen,a distant cousin of mine in Chicago. Within 2-3 days that cousin
contacted me and he updated me on the details of his family for the family
tree I coordinate.

Within another few days I was contacted by George,a cousin of this cousin
(>from "the other side") who was also preparing a family tree of "his side"
and he wanted to include my whole family into his project.

After ongoing correspondence with George (by the way these are all true
first names) he put me on to Dan, an American couple who immigrated to
Israel in the 80's and that their son had married one of my distant cousin
(whose grandparents were in my tree), and he joined the loop of the family
information which was being shared by so many members of the family who
never knew each other before I asked members of this group to help me out
with one cousin (Allen).

As we say in hebrew "kol Hakavod to all of you". (If someone knows a real
english translation of that please post).

They dreamed of building a red Jewish homeland in collaboration with a
Soviet regime. I believe a handful of Jews >from America even went there.
It would indeed be interesting to hear how Nikolai Borodulin presents this.

Let me clear something up:

I just saw the announcement of this talk at a Queens Library branch in NYC.
I simply posted it as a public service. I have no interest in the area or
knowledge of it beyond rudimentry.

But for those of you who live in or near Queens you can check for the
activities on their website http://www.queenslibrary.org. Queens has a very
large Uzbeki Jewish community as well as Russian Jewish (not to mention
large communities >from all over and every background) so they are always
having something that might be of interest (culturally) to some of us.

Howard Margol
 

In yesterday's issue of the Jewishgen Digest, the following message appeared.

We are proud to announce that the database of Lithuanian vital records is
now live on JewishGen... over 9,000 birth, marriage, divorce and death
records.

These can be searched via the JewishGen Lithuania Database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Lithuania

The introductory material for this database is at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Lithuania/VitalRecs.htm

Howard Margol>>>

In my original message sent to the Digest, the name of my co-worker on the
database, Aaron Roetenberg, was included along with my name.
Unfortunately, although Aaron's name was on my post, Aaron's name was left
off.

This has caused me some embarrassment and I apologize to Aaron for the
deletion of his name.

Saying where you live.. #general

In response to saying where you live.....
I am Jewish and live in Salt Lake City. On the
occasions when I have posted to the JG Digest,
and said I live in Salt Lake, I got very few
responses or people wrote and asked if I am doing
Mormon research and suggest that I should use the
FHL which I am fortunate to be able to do often.
When I omit my location I get "tons" of responses
with very helpful information. I no longer list
my location.

Cantor Israel Kupfer (Cooper) #general

Stein Lewis
 

Israel KUPFER was a well known cantor in New York during the late
19th and early 20th centuries. He later changed the spelling of his
name to Cooper. He was married to Fayge (Fanny) ENGLISZER, a sister
of my ggf. I had been under the impression that he was >from Romania,
but in the 1900 Census he reported that his place of birth and that
of his parents was Russia. He and Fanny had seven surviving children,
many of whom were either theatrical performers, agents or managers.
He apparently died before the 1910 census, in which his children show
his place of birth as Russian Poland. The low and behold in the 1920
census, his youngest son, Joseph states that his father was born in
Romania and that his mother tongue was Romania. I have been unable to
find a manifest showing the emigration of the family, which was
either in 1883 or 1886 depending on which census one believes.

I know that Israel Kupfer (COOPER) lived on Madison Street in 1900
and that he chanted at the First Romanian American Synagogue as well
as at the Kalawarie Synagogue. He performed the marriage of my
grandparents at the Congregation Sons of Israel at 13 - 15 Pike
Street at which time he showed his residence to be 3 Rutgers Street.
I have also found references to him in the "American Scene" which was
published >from time to time in the early editions of Commentary. I
also have found references to several of his sons in advertisements
and obituaries in the New York Times.

I am hoping that someone with a knowledge of the synagogues of the
Lower East Side and of theatrical in period >from 1900 to 1940 can
provide information about the family.
I am most particularly interested in knowing if there is any
information about Fanny Cooper.
