Yizkor Book Project, July 2010 #latinamerica

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I do hope those who attended the recent IAJGS conference left it with
renewed energy and motivation to continue your genealogical research.
Of course, if your research leads you to the realm of Yizkor Books,
I am here to help and direct you.

Meanwhile, the Yizkor Book Project continues to hold a wealth of
genealogical and historical information and to improve access to this
precious data, we recently initiated something called the Yizkor Book Master
Name Index (YBMNI) Project. The aim of this project is to collect all the
names appearing in the Yizkor Book translations (apart >from necrologies),
to organize them into a database through which researchers can seek out
names and be directed to the online translated pages themselves.

We have been very fortunate in that Osnat Hazan has agreed to be the YBMNI
Project Manager and together with a small group of volunteers, has begun
the enormous task of collecting and organizing this data. The YBMNI is
located at: http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Yizkor/Names/

If you have a good understanding of Excel, are methodical, have time
available and would like to assist in this groundbreaking project,
please contact Osnat via the link appearing on the main YBMNI page.

translation from Polish to English #general

I posted this request and viewmate link to the Discussion Group however I was in
error on 2 points. First I have been advised that the document is in Polish & not
Cyrillic and that the word in question is on the fourth line and is the third word
after the underlined name. I do apologise but I blame my language error on my
translator, I just didn't realise that she was such a clever lady and was able to
translate Polish as well as Cyrillic and I just assumed that the document was in
Cyrillic. Thank you to the people who have answered or advised me of my error
either on viewmate or privately. However I am still needing a translation please.

The record was found in JRI indexing and purchased >from LDS and it is a birth
record for Golda Goldman. I believe that there are a few towns mentioned,there is
one town that my translator was unable to translate. I understand that it is the
third word on the fourth line. A complete translation would also be appreciated
but not necessary. The record can be found on Viewmate
http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmate.asp?key=16160

PS Yesterday I wrote that there was no back of the book index. Correction, there

Rubin & Anna GOLDBERG of Kolki, Ukraine>Phil>Milw circa 1903-1910 #general

CAROLYNR
 

Trying again to locate any information connected to my GOLDBERG grandparents. The
names are all so common, that I have seen many census and other records that
include very similar names, dates etc - but as I go further along in researching
the various families, they don't match at all.

This is what I have been able to document, and then some added anecdotes.
Rubin GOLDBERG b. 15Mar-or Apr-1881 in Kolki, Russia/Poland 1920 Census said from
Valin, so I believe "Kolki Russia" to be Kolki, in Luck, Ukraine, aka Volinskaya,
Volin, Volyn. Arrived 27Nov1903 or 1904 in Philadelphia, via Liverpool, was a
Butcher by trade, and went to his cousin's, Isaac Woogman, at 702 Kater St. (who
just happens to be another jewish-genner, Selma Neubauer's Grandfather / but we've
not yet determined any actual relationship) He died 11April1931 in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin. His grave marker lists his father as Simche. (Not known if surname was
GOLDBERG)

His wife, Annie GOLDBERG (aka Anna R Goldberg, aka Chane Goldberg) b.1883 or
15Dec1879 (various birth dates on diff legal docs) Arrived several years later,
10Sept1907, with their eldest son, Leo, (Levi) b. 1May1902. She listed her last
residence as Kolky, Russia and said her passage was paid by Father-in-Law, Schiku
Goldberg, and she was joining her husband in Phil, at 328 Monroe St. She arrived
via Ellis Island, NYC.

They lived in Philadelphia then moved to Racine, Wisconsin and then Milwaukee,
Wisconsin. The family was Orthodox, but I do not think they attended temple
regularly. I tried writing to get info >from the elder, Rabbi Twerski in Milwaukee
before he passed, but he never responded. Rubin listed his occupation in 1922 as
a junk dealer, (Peddler), but they eventually had a store in Milwaukee called the
Sherman Park Grocery, at 52nd and Center streets, just down the block >from their
duplex.

Their children were:
Leo Goldberg b. 1May1902 in Kolki, Russia (Ukraine) d.bef 1952
Louis Goldberg b. 15June1908 in Philadelphia, PA USA d. 5Nov1952 Milwaukee, WI
Hyman Goldberg b. 10Dev 1909 in Racine, Wisconsin USA d.17Feb1976 Milwaukee, WI
Sidney Goldberg b. 2Aug1910 in Kenosha, Wisconsin USA d. Jun1982 Los Angeles,
California
Mary Goldberg b.15April1914 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA d. 13Feb1998
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Isadore Goldberg b. 14Jan1916 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA d.21Sept1965
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Meyer Goldberg b. 10Oct1917 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA d. 15Apr1967
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

My father was Meyer, married to Audrey. They lived their entire lives in the
Milwaukee area, as did I until this past year when I moved to the Cincinnati area.

Family Notes I can not prove:
1.)"They were never married and they'd taken Annie's last name of Goldberg instead
of his" OR "they were both named GOLDBERG), OR "his may have been GILBERT." (I
think that meant they never had a civil marriage and they used her last name, as
was traditional when no civil marriage was done in Ukraine?).
2.)Per daughter Mary in 1986; she said "grandparents died young; no pictures and
never heard >from them." (I do not think they ever left Ukraine)
3.) "Anna's parents were Morris and Annie Muriel GOLDBERG." (I have no
documentation and only heard this once - not sure who said it or how they knew
this.)

Please contact me privately, cmrhere@aol.com, if you have any information related
to our family, or post info that may also be useful for others via the newsletter.
I have pictures and a video of grave markers at the Anshai-Lebowitz cemetery, and
some family on my website if interested; www.rutherfordgenealogy.org

Thank you,

Trying again to locate any information connected to my GOLDBERG grandparents. The
names are all so common, that I have seen many census and other records that
include very similar names, dates etc - but as I go further along in researching
the various families, they don't match at all.

This is what I have been able to document, and then some added anecdotes.
Rubin GOLDBERG b. 15Mar-or Apr-1881 in Kolki, Russia/Poland 1920 Census said from
Valin, so I believe "Kolki Russia" to be Kolki, in Luck, Ukraine, aka Volinskaya,
Volin, Volyn. Arrived 27Nov1903 or 1904 in Philadelphia, via Liverpool, was a
Butcher by trade, and went to his cousin's, Isaac Woogman, at 702 Kater St. (who
just happens to be another jewish-genner, Selma Neubauer's Grandfather / but we've
not yet determined any actual relationship) He died 11April1931 in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin. His grave marker lists his father as Simche. (Not known if surname was
GOLDBERG)

His wife, Annie GOLDBERG (aka Anna R Goldberg, aka Chane Goldberg) b.1883 or
15Dec1879 (various birth dates on diff legal docs) Arrived several years later,
10Sept1907, with their eldest son, Leo, (Levi) b. 1May1902. She listed her last
residence as Kolky, Russia and said her passage was paid by Father-in-Law, Schiku
Goldberg, and she was joining her husband in Phil, at 328 Monroe St. She arrived
via Ellis Island, NYC.

They lived in Philadelphia then moved to Racine, Wisconsin and then Milwaukee,
Wisconsin. The family was Orthodox, but I do not think they attended temple
regularly. I tried writing to get info >from the elder, Rabbi Twerski in Milwaukee
before he passed, but he never responded. Rubin listed his occupation in 1922 as
a junk dealer, (Peddler), but they eventually had a store in Milwaukee called the
Sherman Park Grocery, at 52nd and Center streets, just down the block >from their
duplex.

Their children were:
Leo Goldberg b. 1May1902 in Kolki, Russia (Ukraine) d.bef 1952
Louis Goldberg b. 15June1908 in Philadelphia, PA USA d. 5Nov1952 Milwaukee, WI
Hyman Goldberg b. 10Dev 1909 in Racine, Wisconsin USA d.17Feb1976 Milwaukee, WI
Sidney Goldberg b. 2Aug1910 in Kenosha, Wisconsin USA d. Jun1982 Los Angeles,
California
Mary Goldberg b.15April1914 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA d. 13Feb1998
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Isadore Goldberg b. 14Jan1916 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA d.21Sept1965
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Meyer Goldberg b. 10Oct1917 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA d. 15Apr1967

Re: Boston, Mass. department store question #general

Bradlee's may be unlikely; the first store opened in Connecticut in 1958 and the
chain was acquired by Stop & Shop in 1961.

NOTE: The tinyurl is http://tinyurl.com/2wlxh2x

New information is that a relative named Marvin GORE visited the Boston relatives
almost fifty years ago (1960s), and says, "I think I recall that they owned a
department store, Freddlies or something like that." The closest I can come to
this, in researching names of defunct Boston department stores, is Bradlees.
