It isn't! It is in the northern area of Russia, on Baltic. I have read
enough about Gulgas to have known better.
No, Arkhangelsk isn't on the Baltic sea,
but on White sea, an inlet sea of the Barentz sea.

Dear Roy

I'm afraid I can't help you with your questions, as I have no ancestors in
the UK, but as I was born in Winnipeg (hub of the universe), your message
interested me. Do you know what your great-grandmother's maiden name was?
And where she was from?

Thanks,

Dear JewishGenners:

I have posted two photographs at ViewMate, in the hope that someone
might recognize the people in it. They are >from my maternal side, the
AVERBUCH´S, that lived in Zhabokrich, Podolia Gubernia, Ukraine.
In both photos we can see LIOVA AVERBUCH, who moved, after
some time, to Galati, Romania. He was married to an English woman,
not Jewish, called MARUSSI.

You can see the photos at:

LERNER family in Detroit, ca. 1900 < Bucharest #romania

Marc L. Greenberg <marek4@...>
 

Hello, all,
I am new to the list and researching the LERNER
family, which settled in waves around 1900 in Detroit,
coming >from Bucharest. I wonder whether anyone might
recognize members of this family. To help make a
possible connection, I have posted two artifacts on
the Viewmate site
(http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/index.asp):
VM5498 (studio portrait of Lerner Family, ca. 1900,
Detroit)
VM5495 (postcard of Fany, Galati, ca. 1915)
The photo of the Lerner family is Abram LERNER (my
great-grandmother Selina's brother) with his wife,
Sara FREUDBERG LERNER, and two children. I am aware of
several other children of this couple, but only names.
I would like to find descendants of Abram and Sara
LERNER -- have photos and some narrative to share.
Also, Chaim LERNER was the father of Abram and Sara,
and had a second family after his two first children
were grown; he, too, settled in Detroit. Would like to
know more about any of these LERNERs.
The photo of Fany is >from Galati, ca. 1915 and is a
cousin of Abram and Selina LERNER. A name associated
with Fany on the verso of this postcard is WAISENBERG,
though it is unclear whether this is her name, a
husband's, or even her landlord's. If anyone
recognizes the name or face, I would be grateful for
further information.
Thank you,
Marc L. Greenberg

'Breuges' #austria-czech

Charlie Roberts <charlie.roberts@...>
 

Regarding Celia's note on Breuges, this word was commonly used at home when
we grew up. My mother's family originated >from Kolomea (previously in
Poland) and then went to Vienna where she met my father before fleeing in
1938 to England. She always used this word - we understood it to mean
offended/angry. During my childhood my parents ran a restaurant in the East
End 'Roberts Restaurant' affectionately known by us as Refugees Corner (just
behind Gardiner's Corner) and not far >from the Yiddish Grand Palais Theatre.
It certainly was a popular word amongst our customers irrespective of where
they originated from.

Celia, be assured that that lovely word "Breugus" has not died out. My

Latvian/Russian/English/Australian heritage, uses it. Strangely, I can't

If you write what information you want precisely, I might be able

The archives of the chief rabbi is extensive with all sorts of

records concerning Jewish immigrants to Copenhagen during this time,
There are some records concerning Jewish immigrants to Copenhagen,
however there was no official registration of immigrants for a very
long period, so it is not easy to research. I have a database based
on the ledgers for aid to "Russian" immigrants, so if there are some
specific names you are looking for I can look them up.

You can find naturalizations, some censuses and passenger lists
on the website of the Danish Demographic Database:
http://ddd.dda.dk/ddd_en.htm

and records concerning links to the Jewish community of Danzig.
I have not come accross any such records. There might be mention of
Jews >from Danzig somewhere in other records, but they are not listed
specifically.

The National Archives have an index to holdings of records of

It contains a short history of the Jewish Community and explanation

A book has recently been published about the family

The review of the book says that the stories of great families are more than
private stories.
