Smoley family name origin #general

David W. Perle
 

Hi, all.

The last couple of nights, I've pulled up some cool stuff for a new (to me) family
branch going a few generations back, the Morris (Moses)Smoley family of Manhattan.
I'd previously been told that my great-great-grandmother Ida Gottlieb's maiden name
was Smoley and I was told that the family were shoemakers, and now I've found the
family's 1900 and 1910 census directories showing Morris as a shoemaker (they
should be in the 1890 census out of Manhattan, but I can't find it on Ancestry for
some reason), I found his 1896 petition to naturalize, and even "Moses Smole's"
German manifest record and U.S. ship arrival listing. Even Googling for "Morris
Smoley," a couple of quick, random mentions came up showing his shoe and
leather-dealing business. I also found him listed on a burial site showing his and
his wife's/my g-g-g-grandmother's final resting place in Queens. Cool stuff.

His census records indicate that he was >from "Russia" (I have a feeling that he was
really >from Poland, which at the time was under the Russian Empire; I think I saw
some reference to Poland). I had previously understood that he was >from Budapest,
because his daughter'(my great-great-grandmother's) adult census entries indicated
that her father was >from there, but I'm guessing at this point that's wrong.
Adding more possible confusion, I saw Morris's ethnicity on one of the
records given as being >from Prussia.

I Googled to check out the name origin of "Smoley," and I was surprised to see a
whole lot of returns for the name being >from the British Isles! I then remembered
something that my grandma told me probably more than 15 years ago about some branch
of the family >from around there, "you've never seen so much red hair." I wish I'd
asked her more about that, because that that's not a particularly Jewish area!) In
my genealogical adventures since two summers ago, I had not yet come across what
she was referring to, but...could this now be a clue?

However, despite all of those Google returns showing Smoley as being Celtic,
looking it up in Ancestry seems to show a lot of people not >from there but >from
eastern Europe.

Anyone know anything about that name?

Looking for Shapiro family, ex New York #general

P GOLOB <golob459@...>
 

Hello,

I am trying to find descendants of Ben and Sarah (nee Krameroff) Shapiro, who
arrived in New York >from Kiev, Ukraine in 1914. They became naturalised US
citizens in 1919 and had three sons, Alexander, Philip and David, all born between
1918 and 1924. The lived in Brooklyn for many years, and may have had a house in
Florida.

As far as I am aware, these five members of the family are all deceased. Either
Philip or David, or both, married and had a family. I have seen a photo of Ben and
Sarah with a young girl, though I have no idea who she is.

Sarah was the sister of my grandmother, who emigrated >from Ukraine to London in
1911. My grandmother, Faiga Golob, and her husband, Morris visited the Shapiros in
1949, and Sarah and family came to London by ship several times.

I would dearly like to trace any surviving Shapiro descendants; they may no longer
live in New York.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Announcing a new Kehilalink: Kryzhopol (Kryzhopil'), Ukraine #ukraine

Marla Waltman
 

Hello,

I am pleased to announce a new Kehilalinks site that is now live for the
town of Kryzhopol', Ukraine.

While Kryzhopol is the name most familiar to Jewish genealogists, the town's
official name is now Kryzhopil', which is the Ukrainian name for the town
since 1991. Kryzhopol / Kryzhopil' is located in Vinnitsia Oblast, often
still referred to as Podolia region. Nearby shtetls with Jewish populations,
who were known to travel and move to Kryzhopol, include Zhabokrich, Shpikov,
and Kniaze (now known as Radyanske).

Please check for new Kehilalink site at
http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/kryzhopol

Your feedback and content is welcome. Should you have genealogical or other
connections to Kryzhopol, I would be very happy to hear >from you. I am
looking for reminiscences, memoirs, stories, photos, maps, videos, and other
kinds of family or town information that you may have. I also hope that you
will share your suggestions with me to improve the website so that it will
meet the needs of all researchers interested in Kryzhopol.

In addition to the content that is currently on the site, I intend to add
photographs of about a hundred cemetery tombstones that I photographed in
June 2013, as well as some documents provided to me by a Ukrainian-Israeli
historian. I am in the process of translating the gravestones >from Russian,
but would be grateful for any help with translation of the Hebrew
inscriptions. If you have Russian or Hebrew translation or transcription
skills, I would love to hear >from you! I also intend to revisit Kryzhopol,
and plan to photograph the remainder of the tombstones. If you have been to
Kryzhopol yourself, and have your own photos either of the cemetery or other
parts of the town, I would be thrilled if you would share them with me for
the website. Thank you.

Very best wishes,

Re: Town in Transylvania #hungary

edelman@...
 

Hi,

Someone >from Borsa could have identified themselves - not the same as
what border officials need to get told - as Romanian as early as
November-December 1918 based on cease-fire lines and national
declarations, or later in June 1920 when the international Treaty of
Trianon was signed, but most likely "Romanian" referred to and was based
on Romanian documents which may have not been issued closer to or after
July 1921, when the Treaty came into effect. The date of immigration of
the individual in question may make this more clear, at least in
relation to them.

I already wrote privately in response to the message that what they
considered themselves to be would be irrelevant, at least by the last
date above.. and also I assume pre-Trianon documents may have been made
invalid, even for people in the parts of Austria and Hungary which
remained in those two countries (Austrian Empire and Hungarian Empire
passports or proto-passports were always different, yes?).

there is a town in that area (nagyvarad/oradea-mare), that was called
borostelek, now borsa, romania, that had a jewish population of about
2,500 in 1930 according to the jewishgen gazetteer. and there are 49
entries in the jewishgen family finder for borsa.

it seems like a reasonable candidate.

as being Romanian although he considered himself Hungarian.

Hi,

Someone >from Borsa could have identified themselves - not the same as
what border officials need to get told - as Romanian as early as
November-December 1918 based on cease-fire lines and national
declarations, or later in June 1920 when the international Treaty of
Trianon was signed, but most likely "Romanian" referred to and was based
on Romanian documents which may have not been issued closer to or after
July 1921, when the Treaty came into effect. The date of immigration of
the individual in question may make this more clear, at least in
relation to them.

I already wrote privately in response to the message that what they
considered themselves to be would be irrelevant, at least by the last
date above.. and also I assume pre-Trianon documents may have been made
invalid, even for people in the parts of Austria and Hungary which
remained in those two countries (Austrian Empire and Hungarian Empire
passports or proto-passports were always different, yes?).
