searching: KUKLINSKI/LEVENTHAL/CLINTON #general

jsilverman@...
 

Thanks to so many of you who wrote when I previously posted info about
my search. I am hoping for more suggestions. Family legend led me in
one direction, persistence and advice have led me in a slightly
different one which has provided some answers but left me clueless in
other areas. According to the 1900 Federal census, Samuel KUKLINSKI,
born in May, 1875 in Russia and Fannie KUKLINSKI born in July 1874 in
Russia came to the US in 1893 and got married in 1894. They had 3
children Jacob (Jack) born in Nov, 1894, Robert Edwin born in 1896 and
Albert born in 1898. They were living in Newburgh, NY. This family
doesn't show up in the 1910 census, which is confirmed by family lore -
according to the story Samuel abandoned the family sometime around 1906
and Fannie took the children to Canada where she died shortly after
their arrival and they were placed in an orphanage, they were observant
Jews and the children refused to eat the trief in the orphanage - a
Jewish philanthropist in detroit heard about their plight, brought them
to Detroit and placed the two youngest in foster care there. The oldest
went off on his own. By the time they came to Detroit, their last name
was CLINTON. The oldest shows up on the 1910 census with that last
name as a boarder, the others show up again on the 1920 census. I
found Jack's WWI selective service info, Robert and Jack's social
security info and we sent for the social security applications which
gave us their mother's name as Fannie LEVENTHAL and although Robert's
application reported the father's name as Samuel Clinton, Jack's
reported it as Samuel Kuklinski (when we received that paperwork, this
was the first time the family knew what the Clinton name had originally
been!!!) It listed Jack's birthplace as Utica, NY and Robert's as
Buffalo. We found a Frume Leventhal on a ship list but traveling with
an Avraham Leventhal listed as her husband, and no other immigration
info for her. We have come up with lots of Kuklinski names on ships
but none that seems logical for the one we are searching for, but of
course I may have overlooked something. We sent off to Utica for a
birth certificate for Jack with last name of Leventhal (figuring our
Fannie could possibly have been married previously) or Kuklinsky mother
Frume or Fannie, father Avraham Leventhal or Samuel Kuklinski - there
was no recorded birth there. We have searched for newspaper articles
mentioning the orphaned childre, contacted librarians and other sources
looking for Canadian orphanages and have come up blank. Any other
thoughts?

Thanks for the help (and the patience in reading this long note)

Griefer Family #belarus

BGRIEFER@...
 

Hello everyone,

About all that anyone still living knows about my family's origins
is that they emigrated around 1900-1915 >from a small settlement
"near" Bobruisk.
The spelling of the name would be something like: Dubizhneh.

Would anyone have any idea what the real name of the place might be?

Thanks,
Barry Griefer

MODERATOR:

Please remember to sign with name AND city and state or country!
As for your question:
Check JewishGen's ShtetlSeeker
http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/LocTown.asp
first for Bobruisk and find latitude and longitude
then search for your shtetl and enter Boruisk Lat&Long
Remember "Sounds Like"!
Then you get
Dobosna, Dobysno, Dobysna 53°12' 29°41'
18.9 miles E of 5309 2914 [which i Bobruisk]
All the other hits are more 125 miles away, so I guess
Dobosna, Dobysno, Dobysna is your shtetl.

Hello,
For those who are interested in Ludza, Latvia., You
might find it interesting to check the photo uploaded
to viewmate. VM7193
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7193

Does anybody recognize any of the Kids in the photo?
The mentioned newspaper "Igros von tzehoraim" is
probably just a small "kids play" newspaper, but does
anybody have any more details about it?

Please respond to me directly.

Kind regards,
Arie Band

JG Alert: 2006 Canadian Census - May, 2006 #general

jeremy frankel
 

Dear All,

Via another Discussion Group I am on, I have just been made aware
that there will be a Census carried out in Canada this year. Census
Day will be 16th May, 2006. One of the provisions is a "check-off"
box against every individual's name that permits the personal details
of that person to be released in 92 year's time - 2098. The check-off
box is for everyone, even a baby a few months old. People are being
exhorted to make sure all these check-off boxes are indeed
checked-off.

However, what has not not been mentioned (and I was amazed this never
happened in the US 2000 Census, nor the 2001 UK Census) is for
genealogists to alert their families and get them to make photocopies
of the census returns. This way, future genealogists won't have to 92
years!

So please, anyone who has Canadian family, do alert them and make
sure they photocopy the "completed" census forms and mail them to the
family genealogist.

It goes without saying that genealogists should always be making
archival copies of relevant documents that detail family information.

Re: ROTHSCHILD a name where and how ? #general

HPOLLINS@...
 

Rothschild was quite a common name and probably had nothing to do with red
shields.
For example, in the First World War three men named Rothschild served in the
Canadian army. One was a mail carrier (presumably postman), another was a
mail order manager, the third was a mining engineer. In the British army 14
men named Rothschild served, of whom six were members of the banking family.
The other 8 were presumably ordinary people.
