Palekaiko
 

Recently, I was contacted by someone who knows about one of my distant
relatives. He tells me that there was an inquiry to the Red Cross by
someone >from the US. How do I contact the Red Cross to discover the
name of the person who is inquiring about my relative? My relative's
name is Norbert Aleksandrowicz.

Brick Wall: Locating Family from Poland #poland

Eric Ellman <eellman@...>
 

Friends:

I have hit a brick wall trying to trace my GGF's. Louis ROSENBERG's family
back to Poland.

1. What I want to know: more about my GGF's ROSENBERG family >from Poland,
presumably Lomza.

2. What I know about my GGF, Louis ROSENBERG:
* c. (July 15) 1885 - 1966.
* He emigrated >from Bremen, Germany on the Barbarossa arriving on April 27,
1904 (Source: Declaration of Intention).
* He indicated that he was >from Lomza on his Declaration of Intention (No.
15226), filed on , March 9, 1908.
* He indicated that he was >from Lomza on his Petition for Naturalization,
Dec. 28, 1911.
* There is one Rosenberg on the manifest for the Barbarossa arriving on
April 27, 1904.
** That entry was for Lieb Rosenberg, age 19, able to read and write,
nationality, Russia; race: Hebrew; last town Nowogrod. The age matches;
the Hebrew name Lieb matches closely to the American-ized Louis; and Louis'
headstone says Aryeh Leib. Nowogrod is in the Lomza gubernia. This part
makes sense, but there is another part that does not make sense. This same
Lieb, according to the manifest says that Lieb was meeting his brother
David 112-114 Spring St., yet Louis has no known siblings. Also, it appears
he was travelling with 7 others >from his town because there are 8 people
from same town listed above Louis on list. None of these names are known
to the family because family lore is that Louis was an only child.
** I could not find anything in the 1905 census on this David Fagin that
would be a clue. I searched using Steven Morse on 110-112 Spring Street
for 1905.
* In 1906, Louis was married to Sarah FAGIN of Dvinsk and living in
Manhattan.
* In approx. 1914, Louis's father-in-law, David FAGIN, >from Dvinsk,
admitted Louis' son, Charlie ROSENBERG, to the HOA on E. 95th St. and
noted on the intake form that Louis ROSENBERG, was >from Lomjke.
* No known siblings.
* Father: Joseph according to Louis's headstone.
* Buried at Mt. Zion Cemetery in the International Society of Lasker,
a society >from people >from Lask, Poland. Headstone reads, "Here lies
Aryeh Leib, son of Joseph." Lask and Lomza are far; over 300km apart.
* A check of JRI-Poland comes up empty for a Lieb or an Aryeh Lieb
connected to a Joseph that might fit. I searched sounds like Rosenberg
and sounds like Lomza and sounds like Nowogrod. The search included B/D/M
and the 1897 census. I also looked under the town of Lask and got two
entries in the Lomza Gubernia >from Nowogrod that did start with L or J.

Re: Naming a child after deceased relative #general

Merle Kastner <merlebk18@...>
 

To add to this discussion, it was customary to name
a child - (meaning 'old') "Alter" (for a boy) or "Alta" (for a girl) to
'fool the angel of death'.

My grandparents lost an infant daughter at the age of 7 weeks, so when my
Aunt Anita was born, they named her "Alta Bryna".
There are other similar examples in my early family as well.
