From Slonim to Astrakhan #belarus

LR
 

Greetings Belarus Researchers:

I am trying to think of possible reasons my great grandmother/father and
family including my grandfather went >from Slonim to Astrakhan in the
early 1900's. My scarce information is that my grandfather/siblings and
great grandmother were all born in Slonim. They lived in Astrakhan for
many years before immigrating to NYC the last place they stayed before
the boat was Schkoliny Dwor? Grodno with my great grandmother's sister
Chaja Sczarinskaya. Living in Astrakhan may not have been their choice -
I had heard that my great grandfather may not have been the nicest
person in the world. My grandfather always said he was >from Astrakhan. I
believe they were in Astrakhan between 1905 and 1913. My grandfather
Meier Salzstein (Morris Stein) born around 1898 was a tailor as was his
father Gedalia Salzstein. My great grandmother was Scheina Begun
Salzstein (Jennie Stein).

Fannie KINZELBERG/Samuel COHN NYC 1880s #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

I am looking for information about Fannie Kinzelberg,born in Krakow
(Austria/Galicia) circa 1862. Parents were Herman Kinzelberg and
Shane/Jennie Wischnitizia (sp?)

Witnesses to this marriage were Julius Lichtman and Marcus Koplick.
I believe that Marcus's sister-in-law Pauline Kempner was married to
Samuel Cohn's brother.

Fannie was married in New York City on December 28 1884 to Samuel
Cohn/Kohn (born in Osterlinke, Russ-Poland, father Mendel Wiata) was a
widow by 1892.

She had a brief, legally-complicated, second marriage to Leopold
Besser in New York in 1892. Leopold technically became a bigamist via a
court order a month after this marriage. but no divorce or annulment
record can be found for this marriage. This is the mystery I'm trying
to solve.

If you are related to, or have specific information about this Samuel
Cohn/Kohn or this Fannie Kinzelberg Cohn, please contact me privately.

(I do not have information about the Cohn or Kinzelberg families to
share with you, unfortunately.)

Thanks for any assistance....

ViewMate translation Help #general

I would appreciate help with the translation of two ViewMate postings,
# 2145 & #1761

I believe that they are two Civil records written in Cyrillic
from the town of Pultusk or Warka, Poland. They may contain the names
of Nestempower or Karczewer.

I thank in advance any help that can be afforded.

Surnames prior to Ellis Island #general

Kim Sheintal
 

I am aware that ship manifest forms were completed in the country people
left rather than being completed when they arrived at Ellis Island. How
were the clerks in the foreign countries able to complete these forms (with no
equivalent English surnames when the people leaving the foreign country
used Russian letters or Chinese characters etc.)? How did they know how to
write the foreign names into an English surname on the ship manifest?

Thanks.

Re: California marriage information before 1950 #general

Ted Gostin
 

Barbara Wasser asked about finding California marriage information before
1950.

Statewide marriage indexes were published in California only for the years
1949 through 1986. The brides' and grooms' indexes for 1949 through 1959
were published in individual annual books, while the indexes for 1960
through 1986 were published in microfiche format for a decade (1960-69,
1970-79, and 1980-85, with a supplement for 1986). The 1960-1986 fiche is
available in many libararies and on several websites. The 1949-1959 books
are available only in a few selected libraries and public offices, and on
one subscription Internet service that I am aware of.

Prior to 1949, searches must be done at the county level in each county in
which the marriage might have occurred.

Abraham WOLODKIN Manifest: Rotterdam > NY #general

Joan
 

I found a manifest for Abraham WOLODKIN on the most popular for fee
genealogical site. He traveled >from Rotterdam to New York on the
"SS Statendam" arriving February 2, 1910, line 20.

He was deported as per the list at the end of the manifest
for detainees.

I would appreciate help with the name of the town. I was not certain
of it when I check WWWW or the Jewish Communities Database. The name
of the town can be found on two places of the manifest - one showing
where he came >from and then the place of the person he left behind.

Thanks

Fw: Genealogy study guides for Jewish school students #general

Rony Golan, Law Offices & Notary <golanron@...>
 

Arnon Hershkovitz and I wrote an article about a genealogy course for
children. We gave a genealogy course to gifted children in Israel. In the
article "Teaching genealogy to gifted children", we explain that this
course may be applicable to other audiences. You may find it interesting.

The article was recently published as the cover story on the last edition
of the APPG Quarterley:

Hershkovitz, A., & Golan, R. (2010). Teaching genealogy to gifted children.
APG Quarterly, 24(2), 79-86.

school students to introduce them to Jewish genealogical research.
