Re: INTRO, seeking info on 18th century PERLE family #germany

Stephen Falk <sfalkjd@...>
 

David: I wonder whether your ggg gf R. David PERLE of Kalisch was the
same person as the David PERLE, who was supposedly the son of Joske
Juda PERLE of Kalisch, and brother of Moses, Hirsch, Meir, Loser,
Mirel and Michael Jehuda. This information came >from a copy of a
PERLE family tree I received >from a woman in Israel 15 years ago.

The information may be suspect, because the Breslau death record for
Michael Jehuda PERLE identifies his father as Meyer, not Joske Juda.
Once there is one apparent error, it is hard to know which other parts
are correct. (For example, since Joske Juda had a son named Meir, the
generations may have become jumbled in that family tree, and Michael
Jehuda may have been a son of Meir, son of Joske Juda.) All the best,

Stephen Falk, Point Roberts, WA, USA sfalkjd@gmail.com

On Sat, Feb 20, 2016 David William Perle dwperle@gmail.com
I've only just joined GerSyg and this is the very beginning of my foray
into German research.
I know my PERLE line going back to 19th century Kalisz, Poland, but my
great-great-great-grandfather David/Dawid PERLE immigrated there (to fill a
rabbinical role, apparently only an assistant rabbi his decades there)
from...'somewhere' in Germany. He seems to have been born in Germany
around 1794 and moved to Kalisz around 1817.
That's pretty much all that I know about his German roots. (Presuming
that a cousin is correct in telling me that this common ancestor of ours
indeed was originally >from Germany!)
Are there any resources where I might be able to find a David/Dawid
PERLE born in Germany around 1794? (And then hopefully his parents'
names and so on.)
What I already have for him:
- I have the rabbi's 1867 death certificate already (confirming that
he was some sort of clergy)
- One of his kids' (my g-g-gf) birth records which was translated as
identifying him as a "lower rabbi"
- A Google search actually pulled up another Viewmate translation of a
wedding that he was a stand-in rabbi officiating over.

Preserving your data for the future #general

kisanders
 

Hello Genners,

I have been trying to contact several researchers listed in Family Finder. It was
someone with just an address listed. I finally Googled her name, and found that she
was deceased. Then I looked in Family Tree of the Jewish People, and didn't find
any listings for the family surname and town. That made me realize how important
it is to put it in your Will that you have someone upload your family tree so your
efforts won't be lost.

I intend to write down my instructions for uploading my family data, in case of my
death, this week! I suggest you all consider doing the same.

I would also like to know who to notify at Jewishgen.org about the passing of
researchers.

Thank you.

MODRATOR NOT: any notices about the passing of researchers should be sent to
support@jewishgen.org, who will make sure an appropriate notation is added to
their record

JAGER, HOROWITZ, LACHER, FELDMAN, EHRENKRANTZ, from Tarnopol; Also TEICHMAN #general

Jennifer Mendelsohn <jennifer@...>
 

Hi genners.

Following a mistaken piece of information, I just fleshed out a huge
branch of a family tree that I don't think is actually connected to mine.

Jacob Ber Jager and Feige Horowitz (daughter of Israel and Beile) of
Tarnopol had 4 children who lived to adulthood: Israel/Asriel (married
to Minnie FELDMAN, has 8 children; they end up in NY -- their daughter
Jennie marries Benjamin TEICHMAN ), Chaim Wolf (who becomes Hyman in the
US, married to Katie Fingerhut -- his twin Samuel Lieb dies as a child;
they have 5 or 6 kids) Scheinde/Jeannette marries Jacob LACHER and ends
up in Queens, NY with 3 children, and Mendel (married to Beile
EHRENKRANTZ, this family may have stayed in Tarnopol.)

If anyone needs this info, please let me know. I found a lot of
documents on JRI Poland and ancestry and am happy to pass them on.

Possible Mistake? National Jewish Welfare Board #general

Michael Miller <michael@...>
 

Dear JewishGen,

I am the grandson of Albert W. Bell and Marie Rose Bell of Jamaica, NY. Albert &
Rose passed away in the 60's. They were devout Catholics, and one of their
children, Albert W. Bell, Jr. was killed in France in 1945 at age 23 in WW II.

For some reason, I found a National Jewish Welfare Board card that identifies
Albert W. Bell, Jr. as a Jewish solider. I'm certain that the card is his,
because his wife's name and address are correct. I'm wondering if there were
mistakes made with some of these cards, or is it possible that my family history
might've had a Jewish line in it that I'm unaware of?

Albert W. Bell was born on July 14, 1921 at home on Olmstead Rd in Bronx, NY, and
he was baptized on July 31, 1921 at the Church of the Holy Family in Bronx, NY.

Thanks so much for any help you can offer...

Michael Miller

LONSTEIN - Ellis Island arrival May, 1901 #general

Joseph Lonstein
 

Hi,

For a few years I've periodically tried to find the ship's manifest that includes
my great-grandfather's arrival to Ellis Island, mostly to determine his last
residence before emigration and who he met upon arrival in the States. His name
was Sam/Schmuel LONSTEIN (born 1873 in Dvinsk, Latvia and died 1964 in Ellenville,
New York) and his naturalization petition and declaration both state he arrived in
New York City in May, 1901 on the SS Pretoria. I found there was a voyage of the
Pretoria that did arrive on May 19, 1901 and used the Morse site to search all NY
passengers arriving in May, 1901. Neither his name nor a similar name appears in
that long list, and none of likely distorted name transcriptions are even a match
(I looked more closely at a few and none seem to be it). Any suggestions >from the
many JG sleuths? I've found his wife Dalie Itte and their daughter arriving on the
SS Catania in August that same year, but can't find his earlier arrival.

Thanks,

Joe Lonstein
