Looking for Adam Katzeff or anyone with knowledge of Swedish Jewish Genealogy #general

Paula Blank
 

I am looking for Adam Katzeff who posted a while back on the Scandanavian SIG
list.

My ancestor, Jacob JACOBSOHN (sp?) was born in Sweden between 1778-1799
He moved (I assume with his parents) to Jelgava, Latvia and had a child there
circa 1816.

I assume his grandfather was also Jacob. The family name stayed Jacobsohn >from
that point on. Jacob's father may have been Simon. Any ideas?

Paula Blank

researching: JACOBSOHN (Sweden/ Jelgava, Latvia); LEVINSOHN (Jelgava, Latvia);
FINESCHREIBER (Latvia/ Lithuania); NEVATZEN (Latvia); ROTH (Austria-Hungary);
LUKIN (Slutsk, Belarus); KOZLIN/ KASLIN (Slutsk, Belarus), KESSLER (USA);
GUTTZEIT (Blearus), LANGER (Nowy Sacz, Austria-Poland); PETERFREUND (Nowy Sacz,
Austria-Poland); GOLDSAND (Tarnow, Poland); HOLLANDER (Nowy Sacz, Austria-Poland);
PLATZER (Gorlice, Poland), PASAMANICK (Belarus); LEYT/LAIT (Nesvizh, Belarus)

Sailing to US Via Hamburg and Liverpool #general

Allan Karan
 

Greetings,

I found Joseph PERSKY age 24 sailing >from Hamburg on 30 March 1889 papers
noting that he is going to America via Liverpool on the SS Sprite and then
on 18 April 1889 Joseph PERSKY arrives in America on the SS Kansas. Since it
is about a 8 day sailing, I assume he left Liverpool on or about the 10 of
April 1889.

Question: When the sailing papers show sailing >from Hamburg to the US via
Liverpool, would they change ships or stay on the same ship?

Subject: BRENNER OR BRENER - What other surname could they have sailed under in 1880-1884 #general

William Rodman
 

David,

You might also want to consider the surname Bronfenbrenner (distiller of
spirits, alcohol, etc. - think philanthropic Bronfman family of Seagram's fame,
who literally made their fortune producing liquor, perhaps with a little help
from Prohibition).
There's also the unfortunate possibility that your relatives could have sailed
under some completely different, unrelated name.

I have Brenner ancestors whom I discovered were formerly Bronfenbrenners.

Based on other arrivals I found, they probably came through Baltimore, but I
have checked all possible ports. Their first cities were in Pennsylvania:
Lancaster, Harrisburg and Reading.

Many sailed under the BRENNER/BRENER surname. Would be surprised if they did
not. Nevertheless, I am looking for other possible surnames they may have used.

Judith,

Surname Uzdinsky is originated >from the word "uzda" which is in Russian and
Polish means a bridle.

Jewish Records Indexing-Poland identifies similar origin names such as
Uzdanski in Bialystok, Zamosc and Warszawa.

Hope this help

historical article about the Jewish neighbourhood in Kurier Poranny Bialystok and finding records from Bialystok and Grodno #poland

katzsommerb@...
 

1.I found this article online in Kurier Poranny Bialystok about an old street
and an old building built in 1897 still standing. This building was just next
to the Cemetary of rabbis, which no longer exist. The whole area was built by
Jews in the 19th century. There are many names quoted Pesza Rozanski,
Benjamin Szuster, Mordchel and Dvora Zawadzcy, Lew, Mejer, Malka Szyfra and
Szymon Zawadzcy, Jozef Apfelbaum, Benjamin Gutman and my family Aron
Rakowszczyk, my great-grandfather who had a pharmacy on the ground floor
and Aron and M.Rakowszczyk-Cytron my mother's cousins, who were dentists in
the building.

I can translate the article if you are interested.
http://www.poranny.pl/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20141122/ALBUMB/
141129917=A7Template=printpicart2.

I was very happy to find this trace of my family because until now
everysearch for Rakowszczyk or Nenkes( my mother's maiden name) on
the JRI Poland data always tells me that there is nothing about them.
I have found traces of them in different documents phone books,
voters lists, medical rosters on the Genealogy indexer and in Grodno
Ghetto book.I know now their date of birth 1876 for my grandfather
Mordchel Nenkes and 1883 for my grandmother Roza Nenkes Rakowszczyk but
I don't know where they were born. They lived in Grodno >from about 1922
to their deportation to Treblinka. I have heard that they studied
dentistry in St. Peterbourg if that was possible at that time as Jews
could move so easily. They graduated in 1902 and 1903. I don't know
where they got married and where they lived before 1922.. On some of my
mother's records she seems to be born in StPetersbourg on others in
Grodno which seems imposible.

Could you tell me how I could try to find certificates to start with
Bialystok and Grodno, maybe Minsk? I asked at the Jewish genealogical
society in Minsk,they told me that in Grodno they have records >from 1914
which is a bit late for me. Is there a person in charge of these records
for Grodno or Bialystok on Jewishgen that I could contact? I have not
ot found anything on the Mormon data base.Thank you for your help.Thank
you for all your wonderful work.
