Re: Stephen Morse's One-Step is Non-Stop #general

Yehudh bn Shlmo
 

In answer to the posting below. I looked at the
manifest, and I can see where someone might confuse
the name on the manifest with sinabab. Maybe it only
looks that way for old people with trifocals, but
people make mistakes and after staring at badly
written names by people for hours, who only try to
match what the people said in their native tongue with
English, it could end up as a best guess.

What I want to say is that I have used commercial
sites available at my local library and at the NARA
for Census reports for a long time. I found that they
are as accurate on indexing as Steve Morse's Site
which is free of charge. And the Census reports were
written by Americans. Also Steve Morse is not just a
name on the site. I contacted the site three times in
the past year when I could not locate who I was
looking for. Twice I was contacted by Steve himself
and helped with the problem. What more can I say.

Sincerely,
Yehudah ben Shlomo

the EIDB. Up came over 200 names. One of the names
intrigued me, "Sinabab", because it had the right

uncle Mendel, all of whom I am quite familiar with.
Looking at the handwriting, it certainly was spelled
"Michal". My question is how did the EIDB come up
with Sinabab. And how did the meticulous Morse crew
manage to overlook this one?

Do we have a US Navy person in our group who might be able to interpret what
the following service record means? I would like to know what "Landsman for
Machinist's Mate (Aviation)" means, and also "Lack of funds". Whose? His
or the Navy's? This record is an extract >from "Ohio Military Men,
1917-1918". How can I get the actual military record >from the Navy? What
family information might be contained in it?

New Book, "Caviar and Ashes" in the JewishGenMall #ciechanow #poland

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,

Whether your ancestors came >from Poland or you are just interested in the
history of the Polish intellectuals of the 20th century, the new book
"Caviar and Ashes" by Dr. Marci Shore is sure to be a fascinating read.
Recently published by Yale University Press, the book can now be purchased
at a discounted price through the JewishGenMall.

Dr. Shore's "Caviar and Ashes" eloquently presents the history of a
generation of Polish intelligentsia born at the turn of the last
century. The book follows the lives of young innovators who chose the
Marxist philosophy even before Poland fell under the control of the Soviet
Union. Their selected path took them >from literary cafes not only to
corridors of power but also to prison cells. The work, based on the newly
obtainable archives >from Poland, the ex-USSR and Israel, recounts over
fifty years of Eastern-European Jewish literati history in the twentieth
century.

Please visit the JewishGenMall at < www.jewishgenmall.org > and to read
more about the book or to place your order, click on the moving banner..

We welcome your visit and appreciate whatever purchases are made in the
JewishGenMall since this is one way of helping support JewishGen programs
and projects.

Hello, cousins....
Please check my SEARCHING list below as we might be

Leander von KEISEWETTER (b.1760, Principality of
Schwartzburg-Sondershausen; d.1825?) married Frau von
EMMERLING (b.?;d.?, unknown locations) and had at
least one son, Alvin Gustav von KEISEWETTER (b.1800,
Principality of Schwartzburg-Rudoltadt or
Sondershausen; d.12/30/1879, Mankato, MN).

Alvin/Alwin married Johanna Marieanna SCHULTZ (b.1800,
Schwartzburg-Katzhutte; d.10/26/1874, Mankato, MN).

Alvin emigrated to the US in 1847 and settled 1 ¼
miles NE of Mifflinburg, PA to which he brought his
family, the following year, 1848, and established
himself in his profession as Dr. Alvin Gustav
Dornberg, MD.

(von) DORNBERG... I have no idea >from which region
this family lineage originates, however, there is a
Dornberg town in the NE part of Austria
Dornberg = Niederösterreich, Austria

Christian MOESER (b.3/18/1813 or 1815,
Hesse-Darmstadt; passport marked 1836 arrival in
America; d.?, Cincinnati, OH) married Clotilda
DORNBERG (b. 1821, Principality of
Schwartzburg-Sondershausen) and first made their home
in New Berlin, PA, and eventually relocated the family
home to Cincinnati, OH in 1871. Christian and
Clotilda had 5 children.

Christian Heinrich SCHILDKNECHT (Schleswig-Holstein)
married Catharina Margaretha HANSEN (?) and had at
least one son, Joachim Friederich Wilhelm SCHILDKNECHT
(b. 1817, Marienthal, Schleswig-Holstein; d. ?).

Joachim married Katherina Magdalena BAHR (BEHR or
BAER) (b.?, Marienthal, Schleswig-Holstein ?) and had
2 sons, Carl and Gustav.

Carl Fredrich SCHILDKNECHT (b. 9/9/1842, Marienthal,
Schleswig-Holstein which was later referred to as
Lubeck, Germany ?; d. 8/20/1941, Seattle, WA,
according to a Mankato obituary) married Emma MOESER
in Milwaukee on12/11/1871. Carl and Emma had 4
children, Carl, Edmund, Lucy, and Ella.

Carl SCHILDKNECHT (b.9/25/1872, Milwaukee WS) married
Bertha EICHEL.

I only have limited information I have on this EICHEL
lineage. There was a house named EICHEL on Frankfurt
on Main in the Jewish ghetto that was given to
non-Jewish Germans, when the whole street was shipped
off to an extermination camp during the Holocaust.

One possibile link is stated on 1930 Milwaukee, WI US
Census:
R. EICHEL (1862? Germany) + Louise GROSS (b. 1849,
Germany); daughter, Bertha EICHEL (12/21/1879,
Chicago; d. Unknown), but I cannot locate Louise GROSS
anywhere and I have no information regarding places of
birth, dates or places of death.

Age at Arrival: 44y Gender: M Marital Status:

Ship of Travel: Bremen
Port of Departure: Bremen
Manifest Line Number: 0013

I do not know whether this is the right EICHEL,
however, I do know that a Bertha EICHEL married Carl
SCHILDKNECHT and had 3 children (Edmund, Gertrude,
Armin) and one census someone told me has a Louise
Eichel listed as living with them.

Unfortunately, I never knew my g-grand-mother or
father and neither did my mother or her sister... we
are completely lost with regard to finding them.

I only mention the following Hans SCHILDKNECHT because
- due to place of origin - he is most likely a cousin
or uncle who has WEISS in their lineage:

An old family story passed down >from generation to generation re:

in Lithuania (what town I am not familiar with) and was taken in by
the Grazutis family, fed and hidden >from the army. He later married
