Re: more about Max WOLK #belarus

Joseph Fibel <jfibel@...>
 

Dear Jonathon,

Every so often we have to repeat the basics and the same applies to your
search. I would wager that Max Wolk does appear on the EIDB but under some
name variation so you have to go back and look at that. Then I would make a
trip to NYC and go to the NY Public Library and look in the City Directories
for Brooklyn starting in 1910 for Max. Also look for Frieda.I assume that
you will find him. Start with 1910 and continue until he no longer appears.
There is a lot of data in City Directories.

Also look in the 1920 Census using the address you find in the City
Directories and using Stephen Morse search engine. The Workmens Circle is
still around so look in the Phonebook and ask about the Brooklyn Branch. I
would guess that you have found Max's Death Certificate but you don't talk
about this.

The Social Security Death Index should have information about his death date
Using his death dat you can get his death certificate >from the NYC
Municipal Archives. This will also tell you where he is buried. Go visit
the cemetery (He may be buried in a Workmens Circle Plot) but maybe he is in
a landsmanshaft plot that will give you a clue about his specific
birthplace.

There are so many ways for you to go I have just mentioned a few.

Good luck,

Joe Fibel,
New Rochelle, NY
P.S. I assume you have posted your names onto the JGFF. If not do this
immediately.
























If you get no help >from the Workmen's Circle call YIVO and see if they have

I recently wrote about my grandpa, Max WOLK, born about 15 March 1888,
in Minsk or Minsk Gubernia. He came to America around 1910 to 1913,
married Frieda SCHARF of Suchostaw, Galicia 28 March 1914, in Brooklyn,
NY and was active in Workmen's Circle, Minsker Branch 507 in Brooklyn
>from 1913 to 1970. I believe he had a sister who also came to America
and that their parents were Jacob WOLK and Feige KATZ who never left
Europe.

According to family history, Max defected >from the Czar's army along
with 2 other comrades and one of them was killed during their escape
attempt. Max's father, Jacob WOLK (or any such name variation), was
said to be an orthodox rabbi, possibly Hasidic and possibly simply a
student or scholar. I have found no record about Max WOLK in the Ellis
Island records and no record of Jacob WOLK or Feige KATZ anywhere.

I will be most grateful if anyone who knows anything about any of these
people will please contact me privately at jonathanridgeway@aol.com. I
would be particularly interested about any Workmen's Circle contacts or
Belarus background. Thank you.

Male Descent from Elkhanan, Rashi's Grandson #dna

Chaim freedman
 

Jim Bennet suggested DNA testing to determine relationships of
various JAFFE families.

I would like to highly recommend this project particularly as some
of the JAFFEs hold a tradition of descent >from Rashi and thereby
from King David.
However, since Rashi had three daughters and no sons, testing would
need to be carried out of families claiming male descent >from the
various families descended >from Rashi's family circle.

One possibility of acquiring further evidence would be to extend the
DNA sampling to include the HEILPRIN family and any other families
claiming male descent >from Rashi's daughter's great-grandson
Elkhanan and thereby perhaps to establish a "Rashi Davidic Marker"
for the male lines descended >from Rashi's daughters.

I would like to direct the attention of readers to the Davidic
Dynasty Site http://www.davidicdynasty.org/ and suggest that other
families claiming Davidic descent participate in the DNA testing as
described on the site.

Help need to solve the mystery of the child left behind #general

K Beach <proteantime@...>
 

I have a mystery on my research into our great great grandfather and his
wife and their emigration to England.

This is what I know:

Siegmund OPPENHEIM was an African Merchant boarding with a Cotton Spinner's
family in Cheshire on the 1861 census. It says he is 26 and >from Germany.

In 1871 he is a Commission Merchant and a naturalised British Subject who is
single and boarding with a Widow in Moss Side Lancashire.

Then in 1881 we have him not only married to Adele >from Schwerin Mecklenburg
in Prussia, but also with 4 children all born in Chorlton Medlock in
Manchester and living at East Beach in Lytham Lancashire.

There is no mention on this census of his first born son Eugen who would
have been born around 1873 and in Germany. In fact, we don't see any
records of Eugen in England until he is married in 1899 (aged 26)and then
when he is naturalised in 1911.

I've also not been able to find any record of Siegmund's marriage to Adele
in England and I'm assuming they were married in Germany (possibly Hamburg).

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why Eugen may have been left behind
(in Prussia or Germany) and not at a later stage joined the family in
England?

There is a record of an Eugen OPPENHEIM arriving at Castle Garden
immigration point in New York in 1886 which gives a probable match due to
age and last address being Prussia. But other than the fact that he was
listed as a Paper Merchant/Stationer on his wife's death certificate we know
nothing else about him. We do have of course the link to Siegmund and Adele
OPPENHEIM as his parents >from his marriage certificate.

Many thanks in advance for your time and consideration.

Margaret,

I'm sure you'll receive this suggestion several times, but, as far as the
name "Toff" goes, I suggest you start with JewishGen's family finder:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgffweb.htm If you type in Toff next to
"Surname is Exactly" you'll come up with nine hits, including two from
Lithuania and one >from Belarus. I'd suggest contacting all nine of them
with as much information as you can give them about your husband's Toff
family. If you do a "Sounds Like" search on Toff, you'll come up with more
than 300 hits containing what appear to be a number of variations on that
name, including Topf, Taube, Tov and Tuff. Toff could also be a shortened
form of another name. For example, one of the names I'm researching in my
own family is "Toffet."

When you say you've checked UK census records, are you certain you've
checked all of them? I found my second great grandfather's family in the
1881, 1891 and 1901 England censuses (in one case, severely misspelled), and
two of those records (1881 and 1891) contained his town of origin (rather
than just his country). Another thing to look for in England are
naturalization records. I did a quick online search and came up with the
following reference to a naturalization record for a Gerald Toff >from the
Netherlands:
http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/catalogue/displaycataloguedetails.asp?CAT
ID=5075402&CATLN=6&Highlight=%2CTOFF&accessmethod=0 You'll probably want to
order a copy of that record -- naturalization records typically contain a
wealth of genealogical information. Another great source of genealogical
information for England is FreeBMD, an online index to English birth,
marriage and death records >from the middle of the 19th century until the
early 20th century. Here's the link:
http://freebmd.rootsweb.com/cgi/search.pl I would have done a quick search
for you there as well, but their server appears to be down.

I hope these tips are helpful. Good luck in your research.
