ZEEBUS as a family name...Red Cross Tracing service #general

Avi Kay
 

Hello to all,

I have two issues with which I am trying to grapple:

1. My maternal grandfather's original family name was ZEEBUS. He came >from
Ukraine. I have not seen the name - or anything close to it - neither in any
other records nor in books dealing with family names. Any suggestions would
be helpful.

2. I have tried to recieve information via the newly opened tracing service
records for my father's family - all who died in the Shoah. I filled out the
forms and sent them off but received a note back that no information
avaialble regarding any of them. In that we are speaking of over 20 people
who ende dup in different places - this seems odd. Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Avi Kay

In case you had not seen it, there is an ISRAELSKY site which give info on
Augustus Israelsky, although not his parents' names:

http://genealogy.buntyn.us/israelske/augustus.html

You also might like to contact Temple Emanu-El, Dallas, TX, as August
Israelsky was one of the founders. Or, you might like to read the book "A
Light in the Prairie" which was written about the temple.

http://www.tedallas.org/

In addition, you can always directly contact the cemetery where your
relative is buried for your information. In this case, I assume he would be
buried in the Temple Emanu-El Cemetery. The IAJGS cemetery database
provides a source and a cemetery contact.

http://www.jewishgen.org/cemetery/northamerica/texas.html

In addition, the cemetery has its own web site with an e-mail address:

Good luck!

In such a situation, I would endeavour ro check whether the recurrent
person also witnessed such events in other families.

Clarification on the given name: Tzala #general

Andy <arosen2@...>
 

Hello All:

Please help me decipher a given name within my family.

Our family has as one of its given names, "Tzala" that was passed
through the generations, it was my maternal grandfather's great
grandfather's name, and two of his male descendants.

The last relative to be named Tzala was born about 1901. All
relatives of this lineage in this genealogical record descend from
Eastern Galicia as far as I know.

I was told by an Israeli friend of mine that Tzala is a very unusual
name. She, of course, speaks fluent Hebrew and I have no reason to
doubt her.

I learned about Tzala because my genealogical records were passed
down orally through the generations. It was only until the mid-1990's
that my maternal grandfather's family tree was written down. No
thorough genealogical work was ever done on my ancestors before me,
and I began research about a year ago. That said any research I
subsequently did verified many other given names >from this lineage.
In other words, our oral history has proven thus far accurate.

Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation!

Warmly,

Boston, Mass., City Directories #general

Joan Rosen <jgrosen@...>
 

I am interested in locating two people, same surname, in the city of Boston
during the years 1885 through 1902. Is there some way I can do this myself?
If not, is there someone who will do it for me in return for research here
in the Philadelphia area?

Thanks.

Researching Manifests of ShipsThat Left America in Early 1900s #general

Hi,

I know I can use the Ellis Island database for researching ship manifests for
people that came to America. How can I research or view ship manifests for those
that left America? Relatives may have gone back to their homeland (Kozin, Russia
area) around 1905-1920. I would appreciate any advice.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Nancy Goldstein

Witnesses on Polish Jewish records #general

Herbert Lazerow
 

It is hard to know who the witnesses are without seeing the entire
document translated.
Many of these documents begin something like "On 2 February 1880
Avram Itskov Shvarts appeared before me and declared that he is the
father of a son born..."
In that case, the father would not be a witness, because there is no
point in getting him to witness his own statement.
What the witnesses are witnessing is the fact that Avram told all
this to the recorder, so these are likely to be professional
witnesses who hang out with the recorder. They probably did not
witness the birth.

I would be very grateful for any information on this family.

Many thanks for your help - and please respond privately.
