A puzzle regarding Moses ROTH of Bolechow #general

Jennifer Mendelsohn <jennifer@...>
 

I wonder if anyone can shed light on the following.

While tracing the trajectory of some cousins, I found the December 14, 1902
manifest of 17 year old Moses Roth of Bolechow, arriving in Philadelphia. His
contact in the US is an uncle Leon Serwer, which matched the name of the person I
assumed to be Moses' father's sister's husband. Seemed pretty straightforward.

Except that Ancestry flagged a second manifest, >from just three months later, for
an 18 year old Moses Roth of Bolechow, arriving in Philadelphia on 16 March, 1903.
This time it gives his contact as his brother, Marcus Roth. The same family did
indeed have a brother Marcus who lived in Philadelphia.

Any ideas what I am to make of this? Is it even conceivable that someone could have
gone back and forth that quickly? Or do I assume that these have to be two people
the same age >from the same town with the same name and perhaps "Uncle" was used
liberally?

Any insights appreciated. It just seemed so odd.
Thanks.

For those with Russian ancestry this should be of interest and helpful in
your genealogical research.

The Russian State Library has an online database-all in Russian-and claims
to be the second largest online database. To see the first page interface
in English go to: http://www.rsl.ru/en.

To search the online database go to: http://www.rsl.ru/ru/s2/outsources.

For assistance in navigating this website for those who are not Russian
speakers, it is best to use a translator such as Google translate.

A blog entitled Find Lost Russian and Ukrainian Family has an article that
gives step-by-step instructions on how to search the Russian State Library
using Google Search. The title of the article is "A Russian Genealogy
Goldmine Awaiting to be Cleared of its Treasures". This may be read at:

The surname you have run into could simply mean "of (or from) Borysov"
just like Berliner could be "of or >from Berlin".

Well this is not as simple as you have deducted.
Barysowska suppose to be the name of locality not a surname.

Searching for family in BRAZIL #general

WALTER ELIAS
 

Dear JewishGenners,
I posted this several years ago but received no responses. Seeing that a recent
poster on the same topic was significantly helped, I am posting again. I need help
locating any record of my cousin Louis MENDEL, born 1896 in KIRBURG, Westerwaldkreis,
Germany to Sigmund and Bertha MOSES. He emigrated to Brazil in 1921. I am looking for
resources to help me track his emigration, and descendants, if any.
Any assistance appreciated.

INTRO - researching Kohn and Czoschke families in Germany [were any Jewish?] #germany

Katherine Purman
 

Hello GerSig!

Thanks for letting me join the group! I have been doing genealogical
research on my own for roughly 6 months, though my mother and
grandmothers have been gathering information for quite some time. I
consider myself to be intermediate in terms of doing German Jewish
Genealogy, especially on JewishGen; most of the research I have done
has been through ancestry.com.

I live in Hilliard, OH (USA), but grew up in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin
area where the Kohn and Czoschke families settled when coming from
Germany (maybe Poland, too?). I will be going to school in August to
get my Master's Degree in Library Science and enjoy hanging out with
friends and volunteering at the Columbus Jewish Historical Society.

My native language is English and I am slowly learning Polish.

I consider myself advanced with computers and my experience with the
internet and with internet searching is extensive.

My primary research goal is to find Jewish roots in my family - it has
been rumored that it may be a possibility down the line, but no one
has been successful in finding anything. I have been told >from several
people I volunteer with that by cities of origin of my ancestors from
Germany, and well as by their last names, Jewish roots could be
present. So here goes!

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 704656.

The family names and ancestral towns that I have entered in the JGFF
are (spellings on last names are also a guess!):

ARNOLDE >from Leipzig to Lomira, WI around 1864 (via NY)
BECK >from Germany (not sure where) to Lomira, WI around 1864 (via NY)
CZOSCHKE >from Schleswig or Zwesten to Black Creek, WI around 1872 (via NY)
DIRTEL >from Germany (not sure where) to Black Creek, WI around 1872 (via NY)
DOHM >from Schleswig (never left)
GOEBEL >from Germany (not sure where) to Port Dodge, WI around 1854 (via NY)
GROENER >from Bavaria (never left)
HAGEN >from Mecklenburg to Lomira, WI around 1860 (via NY)
HEIL >from Neustadt (never left)
KOHN >from Wurttemburg and Bavaria region, several coming to WI between
1853-1868 (via NY)
KORTUM >from Schleswig (do not know if they left)
MOHR >from Neustadt (do not know if they left)
NEHLS >from Mecklenburg to Lomira, WI around 1860 (via NY)
NICKELS >from Schleswig (never left)
POH >from Neustadt (do not know if they left)
SCHNEIDER >from Wurttemburg to Lomira, WI between 1837-1856 (via NY)
SCHUELEIN >from Wurttemburg to Wisconsin (not sure where) 1853 (via NY)
SORG >from Wurttemburg (never left)
STREHL >from Neustadt, maybe moved to France but did not come to USA
and UNBEHAUN >from Wurttemburg (never left)

Any help would be appreciated!
