Moshe SCHNAPARSKI and Itte JANKIELEWSKI from Belaya Tserkov #general

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

In November 1911 Moshe and Itte SCHNAPARSKI nee JANKIELEWSKI arrived in NY. They
listed their place of birth as Belaya Tserkov, though it might be Pavoloch for
Moshe. *Itte had a brother Baruch JANKIELEWSKI who was still living in Belaya
Tserkov as of 1909.
* Moshe listed their destination as his brother-in-law Josel WINIKUR in
Brooklyn.
* I assume that Moshe changed his surname shortly after arriving, as there
are no further records of him.
I am hoping that perhaps someone is aware of the family of Moshe and Itte and can
advise me as to what they changed their name to. Some other names and information
connected with the SCHNAPARSKI family are:
* Moshe had a brother Boruch SCHNAPARSKY>SNOPARSKY who arrived in December 1909.
He eventually moved to Philadelphia along with (the above mentioned)Josel/Joseph
WINAKUR.
* Boruch/Benjamin changed the spelling of his name to SNOPARSKY.
* Upon arriving in the US he listed his destination as his brother-in-law Joseph
(and Mollie) STEINBERG in Manhattan.
*His nearest relative in Pavoloch was his step-brother Welwel ---ICK (possibly
AURICK, the handwriting on the manifest is quite difficult to read).

I am interested in any and all SCHNAPARSKI/SNOPARSKYs and related families.

If anyone is familiar with JANKIELEWSKI; STEINBERG; WINAKUR/WINIKUR/WINOCUR
or Welwel ---ICK >from Pavoloch, Belaya Tserkov or vicinity I would *greatly*
appreciate hearing >from you!

Thanks so much and wishing you all a lovely week.

American Branch of DAVID Family From Iasi #general

Subj: American Branch of DAVID Family >from Iasi

Hi, Geners!

I am researching the David family >from Iasi, Romania, but in spite of the help of
many researchers to whom I thank, mainly Ms. Nancy Greenberg, found nothing. The
story, in short, is: My paternal grandparents were Elkuni (Elkana) b. circa 1887
[killed in an air-raid, Iasi, 1944] and Haya-Malka David [died,Iasi, 1960].

Their children were Mina, b. before 1910[killed in the same air-raid, 1944], Aron
b. 1910 [died in Transnistria, circa 1941-4, after being expelled >from the Romanian
Army in Chernovici, currently in Ukraine], Shimon b. 1916 [killed in the Iasi
Pogrom in 1941], Shaul b. 1920 [killed in the Iasi Pogrom in 1941], Lora b. 1922
[died in Israel, 2006, no biologic children], and my father, David b. 1925, [died
in Israel,2001].

Elkuni is known to have had at least one sister Sheine/Sheindl, and is believed to
have had at least one brother in America, sending clothes to the family in Iasi
circa 1950.

Other clues I have:
1) The family tradition I found out lately, is that The origin of the family is
Sephardic, not Ashkenazi.
2) The last known residence of the family (until the early 1960'swas Stradela
Pantelimon * or * (not to be mixed with Strada pantelimon)

We don't even have the names of Elkuni's parent, so searching has been next to
impossible, including the Jewish community of Iasi not being able to find his death
certificate.

I'd appreciate any lead that advances me to finding the lost branches of the
family.

LAMM Family from Germany>Cincinnati>Baltimore and Parkersburg, WV>Chicago #general

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

This is not my first request trying to locate members of the LAMM family,but thanks
to some key help >from Joanne Stone Wyman and Ned Lewison, I have been able to
compile a rather extensive Lamm family tree and now have more accurate information
on the family.

* The tree that I've compiled consists of 82 people; the head of the family was
Isaac LAMM born in Bavaria ~1796 and died in Cincinnati in 1851. The LAMM men were
clothiers; they started Lamm Brothers Clothiers in Cincinnati; moved to Baltimore
and Parkersburg, WV and eventually most of the family relocated to Chicago where
they opened Lamm and Co., wholesale tailors.
* Some other surnames found in the family are: STERN; HOFELD; GOLDSMITH;
FRIEND; LEBOLT; PIOSO; BLATT and WOOLF.
* With a few exceptions, until 1930 these families all lived in Chicago; the
exceptions seem to be several members who lived in Washington, DC.

Though I have no proof yet, I'm quite certain that Isaac LAMM was the father of my
gg grandmother Bertha LAMM MARX. I have contacted everyone listed in JGFF who might
be remotely connected to this family, but unfortunately haven't received any
responses. I would greatly appreciate hearing >from anyone who is connected to this
LAMM family; I'm happy to share the extensive work I've done and would love to find
some proof of the connection between Bertha and the clothier brothers!

Thanks so much in advance and wishing everyone a lovely week.

Was It Possible to "Jump Ship" at Ellis Island? #general

ZIP908@...
 

My husband's family history is that his grandfather and his grandfather's brothers
were supposed to go to Canada, but when the ship docked first in New York his
grandfather "jumped ship" while the brothers went on to Canada. This was in
approximately 1913. Because he was here illegaly he changed his name >from Isadore
EISENPRESSER to PRESSER, and never tried to obtain US citizenship.

Does anyone know how easy it was at that time to leave the ship in New York when
you were actually booked through to Canada? The only record I've been able to find
for him is in the 1920 Federal Census.

Laurel Presser

There are good and bad sides to being Online. Especially when there are teenagers
who have masteredthe Internet but do not yet know how to use a screwdriver or boil
an egg. However it is the Internet that has made Genealogy so popular, and
provides us with information to be able to effectively use offline resources as
well. It also gives people that extra boost to get started on that long road to a
well detailed family history.

But there is another side to this that has not been mentioned. I can't tell you
how many times I have heard people say: "You know, when I was young, I just didn't
think about my ancestors or distant cousins that much, but now that I'm older, I
want to know all about them" The Internet and computers not only allow children
and the elderly access to their ancestry, but also allow the extremely ill and
disabled to learn and explore their family roots. Many of these people do not have
physical access to Libraries or other Archives where much of this information
exists. Nor could they be disconnected >from their home or hospital environment to
be driven there. That is why it is so very important that this family information
becomes available online to those who can't drive yet, to those who just can't
drive anymore, and to those who can't be driven at all.

Not too long ago the elderly and dying were stuck in institutions with nothing
but a TV and telephone (if lucky), and library material if they could find someone
to bring it to them. It is a Blessing what they can find on their own now. And
what they can't, the generosity of Forums like this provide.

Re: Locating Naturalization Records New York 1850s/SCHWARZBAUM #general

Carolyn Lea <clea@...>
 

Thank you to the many respondents who have helped in locating early (pre-1906)
naturalization records >from the Court of Common Pleas in New York. Hopefully I did
not miss anyone in my personal replies. It appears the records are available >from
three sources. As posted by others there is a general concensus that the records
will not have any information not found on the index.

Below are the three sources:

1. Thanks to Phyllis Kramer who suggests the originals can be located at :
"City Clerk/State Supreme Court: 60 Center Rm103B(basement), NYS Census
1905/15/25 books; Naturalizations (NY Cty Common Pleas and NYS Supreme Cout)
to 1906"

2. Thanks to the many of you who provided information on NARA Northeast
(New York City location) on Varnick street where you may search yourself or
order some historical records - now including naturalization records -
online. See http://www.archives.gov/northeast/nyc/

3. The records are available on film >from the LDS. Thanks to Berry Chernick
for helping me locate the right group of films. To locate the films in the
FHL catalogue: "Common Pleas Court of New York County Petitions, with an
index,should be in film series 1001979 and on, covers 1792-1895" - if you use the
film number cited to do your search you will be taken to the correct list of
films. These films include the following "Indexes and contains the records
for New York County Court of Common Pleas (formerly Mayors court),
1792-1895; New York County Superior Court, 1828-1895; and New York County
Supreme Court, 1868, 1896-1906". You will need the year, bundle number and
record number (found in the index) to order the correct film.

Thank you all and hope this helps others.

Dear Jill

I have had good luck with the South African National Archives.
The on-line search engine gives only the title of the document.
I obtained a photo-copy of the relevant document by hiring the
services of a researcher to go to the archives and make a copy
for me. This cost me 20 to 25 US dollars. In my case, the
results were well worth the cost.

I'm posting this message on behalf of a friend who has recently discovered

She is searching for family connected to:

engine we can see that he married Rebecca PEIMER and that he died in 1918.
He was a goldminer, probably somewhere in the former Transvaal. They had

married Peretz Philip SEGAL some time before 1944.

If anyone has information on these families, please email me privately and

the box for "place" enter just the letters "Lat". This will then give you a
list of the 1200+ people who fled Latvia to Tashkent at the beginning of
WWII -- their names appear in alphabetical order by family name.
