My late husband last name was HOFER KINGSLEY. I am very

I missed the start of this and I don't have the address for Maria Hofer.
Someone please forward this message to her.

Hofer is an uncommon first name. Kingsley is not a German (or an Austrian)
name.

My mother's maiden name was Koenigshoefer. There are two Jewish families
from Germany with that name. One was descended >from Daniel Ploch of the town of
Floss in the Upper Palatinate of Bavaria. Some of the members wrote their name
Goenigshofer. As far as I know the Koenigshoefers >from Floss have left no
male descendants with that name.

The other family with that name was on my mother's side. Emanuel Loeb
KOENIGSHOEFER was born in 1806 in Ermreuth, Upper Franconia. I don't know the
origin of the family name. He was orphaned young. He became Jewish school teacher
and cantor in the village of Welbhausen, near Wurzburg. He had two daughters
and two sons. The elder son, Moses Jonah, my ggfather, fathered 16 children.
He was a rabbi in Fuerth and director of Fuerth's Jewish orphanage.

The family has spread widely around the world and the various branches have
changed their names in a manner that causes anguish to genealogists. Kingsley
Hofer (or Hofer Kingsley) would certainly not surprise me.

The last time I searched the web, there were a dozen or more Koenigshoefer
families in Austria; they were not Jewish and didn't want to correspond with
me.

jacob/jack COHEN & Eleanor COHEN #general

lizdmiller@...
 

Hi,

I am looking for information on Jacob COHEN, who immigrated with his sister,
Eske(Sarah)in 1898. In the 1910 New York Census, Jacob was living in Haven, New
York on a farm along with his sister, Sarah Cohen RUDERMAN, her husband, Morris
Ruderman and their children, Rachel, Ceil and my dad, Henry. Members of my family
said he went by Jack Cohen, but do not know where he was living.

Jacob and Sarah(who lived in Port Jervis, NY until her death >from cancer in 1948)
had a sister, Eleanor Cohen who never married, lived in the Brighton Beach area of
Brooklyn, and was struck down while trying to cross the street sometime in the
early 1960s.

If anyone has any information on Jacob/Jack Cohen or Eleanor Cohen, please let me
hear >from you.

Sincerely,

Liz Ruderman Miller

GINZIG/GINZING & MORRIS: Married but single in census, multiply names #general

Debby Gincig Painter
 

Again thanks to all who have helped me with my "brick wall". I have a couple more
questions. My Greatparents (William GINZIG/GINZING and Lenna/Lena MORRIS were
married in October of 1899, but my Great-Grandmother is still shown living at her
parents house in the June, 1900 Manhattan census as single with no mention of my
Great-Grandfather even living there. (I know this is the right family because of
the siblings listed.) I realize that it is possible that he wouldn't be on the
census if he was away, but why would she be listed as single? Plus, can't find my
Great-Grandfather anywheres in 1900 censuses.

Secondly, Lena's father is shown as Gustav in 1900 Manhattan census, George in
1910/1920 Los Angeles censuses, and Alexander on her marriage certificate. (Unable
to find family in 1880 census.) I'm pretty sure they are all the same person but
how does one go about verifying this?

Thanks to all in advance,

Additions to JOWBR #general

Joyce Field
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce the addition of over 187,000 records and over
10,000 tombstone images to the JEWISHGEN ONLINE WORLDWIDE BURIAL REGISTRY (JOWBR).
The database now contains over 800,000 records in 1,810 cemeteries and
landsmanschaft plots.

Additions were made to the records of the following countries: Belarus, Canada,
Egypt, England, Germany, Hungary, India, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands
Antilles, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Switzerland, Syria, Ukraine, and United
States.

Significant contributions were made by the following persons and organizations.
While all contributors are acknowledged and appreciated, we are pointing out the
following for their extraordinary efforts.

- Carolynne Veffer (JGS Toronto) - 13 Toronto cemeteries (8,000 records)
- Bruno Segal - Botosani, Romania (~13,200 records).
- Terry Lasky - 11 Colorado cemeteries (~17,700)
- Susan Melnick (Rauh Jewish Archives) - 9 Pennslyvania cemeteries
(>5,300 records)
- Rabbi Ed Cohen - 185 Connecticut, 31 western Massachusetts
and 8 Rhode Island cemeteries (~90,000 records)
- Gilda Kurtzman -
Significant additions and revisions of Israeli cemeteries

None of these accomplishments would have been possible without
the efforts of Nolan Altman, JOWBR Technical Coordinator;
Michael Tobias and Warren Blatt, JewishGen's amazing technical team;
and the encouragement of Susan King, JewishGen's founder and
Managing Director. We also want to thank the team of volunteer
translators that worked on 16 cemeteries. Finally, without the
donations of photographs and burial records by hundreds of
individuals and organizations, this project would not be possible.
Our thanks and appreciation to all.

The JOWBR database is searchable at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery >.

Please contact me or Nolan Altman, < nta@pipeline.com >,
about the donation of additional material to JOWBR.

Researching a LYONS family living in NY in mid-late 1880s #general

Juliet <juliet@...>
 

Hi all,

I am interested in a LYONS family that lived in NY 1880s who originated >from
England perhaps in the early 1850s.

Mordechai Lyons was born in 1821 in England. In the 1880 census, he lists his
occupation as cigar maker. He is married in 1853 to Maria LAZARUS born (also in
England I believe) in 1826.

They have at least 5 children, Bertha (b 1854), Sarah (b 1857), Leah (b 1858)
Julia (1863), and Henry (b 1871).

I think Bertha married a Mr. LANSEADEL and Julia married a Mr STRAUT.
Sarah married Morris STAMPER in 1883 and died in 1925.

It is possible that Mordechai Lyons was a sibling of Esther Lyons who married Moses
Lazarus who were the parents of Emma Lyons Lazarus.Although I have also seen Emma
Lazarus's mother attributed with the maiden name Esther Nathan.

Any additional information about this family would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Argentine Surnames Index #galicia

Dear Genners and Siggers,

Would like to draw your attention to a very useful index of about
38,000 surnames in Argentine. It helps those who are trying to find
out whether such a family ever ended up there. This supplements the
online 4 Ashkenazi cemeteries in Buenos Aires. Not all the Jews
ended up in the capital city.
