Louise Mason
 

Dear Genners

I am hoping that someone in the USA may be able to help in my search
for this family.

Rebecca SORSKY/SHORE aka Betsy/Beckie/Betty b 1899 in London d 1983 USA.
She married Benjamin EMBER b May 1897 in Canada. They married abt. 1919.

Their daughter was called Shirley IMBER b 1921.

In 1930 the family were living in Detroit, Wayne, Michigan

The parents of Benjamin EMBER were Hyman b 1863 Austria and Fannie b 1865
Austria

Betty IMBER died in Detroit, Wayne, Michigan in 1983 it is her lineage
that I am trying to trace.

Many Thanks

Louise Mason (London)


Searching: SCHENKELMAN or SHENKMAN, Argentina #latinamerica

Daniel Nussbaum <yekkeydan@...>
 

My father in law, Max ROSENTHAL, allow hashalom, once told me that he
had relatives named SCHENKELMAN or SHENKMAN who went to Argentina and
owned a shoe factory. This was quite a coincidence because he also
owned a shoe factory. I have been trying to find this family and all I
could find was a grave stone for Dora Rosenthal y Schenkelman. Max
also had a cousin named Dora Shenkman in Philadelphia.

Can anybody out there in cyberspace help me locate this family.

Viewmate 15717 - name on Ellis Island Manifest #general

Debbie Pomerance
 

Hi -

i have an Ellis Manifest and I need help deciphering the first name of
my great-Uncle's step-father, who he is going to stay with.

_____ Pomerance (sp?)

They are all >from the Kremenchug area of Russia (Ukraine), Poltava
Gubernyia (Province) on the Dneiper river).

It looks like Schmuel - if the first letter is an S. Or maybe it is a
different spelling?

Or maybe the name could be Shlomie? Or maybe another name beginning
with an S, that I cannot think of.

Other Hebrew or Yiddish possible names?

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/responselist.asp?key=15717

I appreciate all your help.

Re: KOPYT - KOPIT - COPPIT Family from Fastov, Ukraine #general

Boris Feldblyum <boris.feldblyum@...>
 

I am attempting to track down anyone who might be familiar with
the KOPYT family >from Fastov...

There was a KOPYT family in Fastov in the 1960's. The man's given name
was Izya, he was in his 40's, had a wife and one or two children. He
also had a sister who was either divorced or single, with a child.

Most likely, they either made aliyah or emigrated elsewhere.

Searching in Poland #general

Bob Kosovsky
 

Hi folks,

I've recently begun genealogical work for a friend. One of his ancestral towns
is Proszowice. JRI-Poland lists very few records for that town (mostly
mentions of people who went elsewhere).

Then I checked Miriam Weiner's Routes to Roots database. A tantalizing record
came up, indicating goverment records exist in Krakow concerning
Proszowice covering the years 1474 through 1734. Gosh!

I'm sure that Jews were not part of the government in Poland during that time,
but I'm thinking that maybe government records might indicate when Jews began
settling in that area. (If I'm extremely lucky, maybe a few names are
mentioned, although undoubtedly without surnames.) After all, they are in her
database - there must be something relevant for Jews.

So how do I go about hiring someone to go to Krakow to examine these records?

Thanks for your responses.

Thanks to JewishGen. I appreciate everyone's help who responded to
my request. Are: finding contact info for my cousin's family following
her death. I'd not met her. I want to send a card or make a donation.
Because of the responses, I received some new resources that allowed me
to find their contact info, independent of the synagogue and cemetery.
