NEVDOFSKI #general

H SILVER
 

Hi,

I hope you are all having a wonderful Pasech.

I am researching my paternal gmother's family.

The family originated >from Raseiniai,Gubernia,Lithuania. My ggfather was a
wholesale fisherman, who, unfortunately, fell into the Baltic and died >from
hyperthermia. The family name was NEVDOFSKI. My gmother's name was, Chusha
Mindel/Cecelia. Her brother, Yacov, came to England. Her sister Chia/Annie,
also came to England with her husband, Max KADDISH, they settled in Sheffield.
Another 2 sisters emigrated to Stockholm, Sweden, with their husbands, who were
boot makers.They had children there. However, the eldest sister, Gitel, and
her husband went back to Lithuania, to visit family, and the husband was
arrested by the tzar's army and sent to Siberia. Her other sister, Leibe, and
her husband left Sweden and followed them to Siberia where all contact was lost.
Another sister, Sarah Leah, and her husband, named JESOFSKI, emigrated to Chicago
and later moved to San Francisco. I think they had 2 children, Mendel and Celia.
The family left in Stockholm did correspond with the family in Sheffield until
the 2nd. world war.

If anything rings a bell with you, I'd love to hear >from you.

Regards,
Harvey Silver, England.

Re: Search for cemetery in Miami-Dade, FL #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

Naomi Finkelstein asked whether a Florida death certificate will provide the
name of the cemetery.

Assuming that the record isn't ancient(and that the person was buried, of course),
the cemetery will indeed be mentioned on a death certificate issued by Florida.
The name of the cemetery is one of the items on the standard U.S.death certificate
issued by the Center for Disease Control, which I believe has to be adopted and
implemented by all states.

I'm not sure when the cemetery name was added to the items, but it was many
decades ago.

But perhaps best of all, death certificates >from Florida cost only $5 and no
proof of relationship is required when not requesting information about the
cause of death.

Interesting reading on birth, death, and marriage certificate standards is at
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1920079/pdf/pubhealthreporig00034-0071.pdf
http://tinyurl.com/d3s2g7l [MOD]
or by searching for the terms 'standard + death + certificate'.

Hoping everybody is having a happy Pesach.

Solomon DUNN #general

Howard Coupland <how.jacque@...>
 

I am trying to find details about Solomon DUNN, son of Harris DWORKIN. He
was born circa 1898, married Annie Gershfield in May 1922 at The South
Broughton Synagogue, Manchester.
The family settled in Preston and worked as a Cloth Merchant Traveller.

The story goes that around 1932 he went to school, said bye to his wife and
son and then disappeared without a trace.

I know that he has a surviving daughter living in Perth, Western Australia.

The family would be grateful if someone could help solve this 80 year old
mystery.

Esselstine family in NY and Ohio, Hohenberg in Chicago #general

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

This may duplicate what Joshua already knows, but he gave us only one date and
did not indicate what records he searched,

First --- I cannot emphasize enough -- use Wild Cards in your searches!

ESSELSTEIN LINE:
Using wildcard searches:
Es*elste*n
Es*elste*ne
Eis*elste*n
Eis*elste*ne

Also, I did not use the spelling Frances, just Fran*s.
That would pick up both Francis and Frances.

1. 1850 US Census Frances ESSELSTINE:
Lists Frances born abt 1846, Ohio and parents Isaac and Mary as well as
4 other siblings besides Levi:
Levi Esselstine, 14
John Esselstine, 11
Jacob Esselstine, 6
Frances Esselstine, 4
Benj Esselstine, 2
Preston Esselstine, 0
The census also indicted Isaac was a farmer, was born in NY and that his wife
was born in Virginia.

2. City Directories
Elmira, NY city directory 1891 shows an Esther N ESSELTEEN (widow of Levi).


Fort Wayne, IN city directories of 1889, 90, 91, and 1914 list a Minerva
ESSELTEIN as the widow of Levi.
You may want to check death records for those cities.

3. In addition there are several unsourced trees on A. that seem to be for
this family and may provide leads.


As for the HALLO - HOHENBERG line:

1. 1906 Cook County Marriages (on line): Louise is listed as HOHENBERGER.

2. 1910 US Census:
Julius and Louise are living in Chicago.
Census indicates her birth abt 1881, in Austria.
They've been married abt 3 years,
Both were born in AustriaGermany as were their parents,
He's a lithographer in the printing industry.
His year of immigration is transcribed as 1905, but it clearly says 1904...
hers is given as 1893.

1920 US Census:
Julius J and Louise are living in Chicago.
Census indicates her birth abt 1881.
Julius works as a lithographer. Julius POB is now shown as Bohemia.

1930 US Census:
Julius and Louise still in Chicago.
Census indicates her birth in 1884 in ?Austria?, Immigration in 1894.
Son, Martin J, age 19, is with them and also working as a lithographer.
Julius POB is now shown as Bohemia.

1945 Illinois Death records (on-line): Louise HALLO, 63 yrs old.


3. After seeing HOHENBERGER in the Marriage Index, I looked for records under
Hohenber* -- but that brought up over 10K entries.
So I tried a different wild card and searched for Lou* Hohenber*
2 possibilities:
Louisa b abt 1878, entered US in 1905.
Louise b abt 1878, entered US 1904.

Yes, their son Martin did die in Florida aged 65

I am curious if my family's surname has any special meaning,

Polish/Belarusian taken surname but could be wrong on that.
