Lithuania - Berlin connection. #lithuania

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - I have 2 families who came >from Kovno, but married people >from
Berlin, while they were still in Europe. In one case, the immigration
record states that the mother was >from Germany, and that the family had
been living in Berlin. Did some Lithuanians end up living in Berlin for
a while, in their trek to America, and possibly marrying Germans while
they were there? My great great grandmother came to the US, but went
back to Russia in the late 1880s. Supposedly she married someone >from
Berlin. Would there be any other reason why people >from Berlin would
have married people >from Lithuania during that era? My great great
grandmother's story is even longer, as after her 2nd husband died, she
was sent money by her relatives in the US, to come back to the US. But
on her way there, she yet again found someone >from Berlin to marry, and
never made it to the US. So I'm looking for an explanation for these
marriages. Thanks.

Re: general store in Satoraljauhely #hungary

tom
 

welcome to (hungarian) jewish genealogy!

i can't help you much with satoraljaujhely, although i'm sure others
here can, but i can point out that KLEIN is one of the most common
hungarian jewish names, and, as my mother used to point out, there
was (at least) one KLEIN family in every town and village in hungary,
and generally speaking not related to one another.

just for fun, look up KLEIN and a few other "typical jewish names" in
the 1891 industry and trade directory on bogardi.com:
<http://www.bogardi.com/gen/>, which shows both frequency of
occurrence, and their geographic distribution. it's an interesting
tool.
