Searching GORDON family Tennessee to California #general

NormK12065
 

JGenrs,

Several months ago I posted a search for a missing GORDON family branch that
settled in Tennessee and then went to Canada. The father became blind and wound up
back in the Bronx at a home for the blind.

It turns out that the 85+ individual who gave that information has corrected
herself and indicated the he did not go to Canada. He went >from Tennessee back to
the Bronx.

But, she indicated he had a son who moved to California >from Tennessee and worked
for a newspaper. That is all she remembers except the son was friendly with this
woman's sister, Celia Gordon Weiss who passed away in Los Angeles in 1973.

If there are any Gordons who had Tennessee, California and newspaper connections
and recall Celia, I would appreciate you contacting me privately.

Thank you.

Needle in the haystack #general

Mrs Shulamit B Spain-Gayer <castaneye@...>
 

I am looking for needle in the haystack. A cousin of mine has found a teenager with
the name Simon HERNBALL apparently in the UK. I wonder if anyone has come across a
family in the UK with the name Hernball and could put me in touch. So far all my
attempts to finding them have failed.

Birth Records #poland

MERYL RIZZOTTI
 

I hired a researcher to look up my Grandfather's family in Lomza.
She came up with lots of things: one being the marriage of my Great
Aunt Syma Cymes to a Chaim Nysko Achramowicz on October 11,1904.

She also found the birth record of Chaim which she sent me, written
in Cyrillic. Her translation indicates that he was born on Feb 15,
1886 but on the JRI Poland site it indicates he was born in 1898
akt #8. All of the information is the same as the certificate she
translated. >from what she sent me he was born on Feb 15, 1886 but
the birth wasn't registered until January 24, 1898 AKT #8.

It seems strange to me that the births (he also had a twin sister
according to the JRI-Poland site) were not registered until 2
years later. Was this customary? This seems very strange to me.
I thought she had sent me a bogus record but her translation gives
Chaim's father as the same name as on JRIPOLAND.

Any answers?

MODERATOR'S NOTE: In the search results >from the JRI-Poland database,
the year given is the year of registration. This can reflect a
registration delayed >from a few days to a dozen years or more. Delayed
registration, especially of births, was not uncommon.

I need some help with the translation of several Polish birth records

has some notes in the left margin that don't appear on the other
records.

Dattel--Apple families #austria-czech

sararu70@...
 

Mayer DATTEL , who lived in Waurez , now Nouvorainko, came to the
United States in 1911. His wife Feiga did not come with him but
stayed home in Waurez. There was an APPLE family living in Waurez, so
that was probably Mayer's connection to Sam APPLE, his friend, who
Mayer was to stay with when he arrived in New York. There were other
APPLE persons >from Waurez , Joseph and Meyer, that also came through Ellis
Island at that time, but we don't know if or how they were related.
One of the APPLE names was mis-spelled as Rotle.

Mayer's stay in New York wasn't very long , as he had two sisters ,
Minnie {Malka ALTMAN} and Chava COHEN living in the Greensburg area in
Western Pennsylvania. Mayer was to spend most of his time with them
and their families.

Mayer returned to Waurez about 1921 and as far as we know , he , his wife
Feiga and daughter Eva stayed in the Waurez area., however they could have
moved around looking for a safe place to settle. In the middle 1930s he
wrote to his sister Chava how bad things were getting in Europe, no work
and food was scarce.
The may have tried to avoid the Germans by somehow getting to Eretz
Israel. We don't know for sure what happened to them. There was no
further communication >from Meyer.
We can't find him or his wife on any holocaust lists, or anywhere for that
matter. His daughter Eva did send her wedding picture to her Aunt Chava
COHEN, so we know she made it to safety.

If anyone has any knowledge of Mayer and Feiga DATTEL or the APPLE
family , or any of their descendants living anywhere , we would
appreciate hearing >from you.

Oops, so it turns out that the text I posted is in Russian, not Polish. Can
someone please translate the Russian writing posted at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=12898>? It is the back of
an unidentified family photo postcard, and I am hopeful that the inscription will
give me a clue as to the identity of the person in the photograph.

Thanks very much,
