In response to Steve and Marilynn's dialog on Kupel, there was a
Kapulier Synagogue in Omaha. Perhaps the Nebraska Jewish Historical
Society may have some info [www.nebraskajhs.com].

Russian relative born in Germany, on the way to America? #general

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - Does anybody have a story about a Russian relative who was born in
Germany, while the family was traveling to America? I was researching
a Latvian family who came to America in 1891. Records show that the
youngest daughter, was born about that year. She's listed in the 1900 &
1910 censuses, as being born in Germany, while her 2 year older sister,
is listed as being born in Russia. In the later censuses, the younger
sister is listed as being born in America.

The Hamburg to UK passenger list for the family, includes a 1 year old
child, who could be this daughter. However, in the Liverpool to US
passenger list, this younger daughter, is not listed. Could the child
have been born in Germany, and have been so young, that the US list
would not have included her?

After WWI, and when the woman had children, she probably decided thought it best,
to tell a "white" lie, and say that she was born in America, rather than Germany.

Thanks. - Mark London

Siga #hungary

Israel P
 

I am recording some family birth records >from Hungary in the late 1800s and I
see one with the given name Siga. The jewish name is also recorded -
Yehoshua Zelig.

I have never seen the name Siga before. Is it a nickname, if so for what? Or
is it a real name as is?

Searching: BLUMENTHAL #general

David Selig
 

Hello

I woudl be interested in contacts, ressources, and tools available for reseraching
information about my mother's family. I have marriage certificate of her parents,
birth cert of her mother.

I am specifically looking for information about my mother's sister, killed in the
camps and the address at which the family lived (and worked? ) in Berlin, pre 1939,
date of their departure for Australia.

PARENTS -
Erich BLUMENTHAL, born 24.08.1893, Konigsberg
Charlotte LESKE, born ??.10.1985, Berlin

My mother -
Eva Martha BLUMENTHAL (later SELIG) and her sister
Irene BLUMENTHAL, born?? 1920? in Berlin

A first serach, notably on the Yad Vashem web site list of victims, traces a
possible match, to Irene GLASER, ne BLUMENTHAL, with a year of birth as 1920
(according to that record, born 19.01.1920 in Berlin Wilmersdorf)

Any help would be much welcomed.

Best, David

One branch that I have almost no information on at all is ARNSTEIN >from Podkamien.

I am sure that there can be different variations on spelling: ARENSTEIN,
ORENSTEIN, ARENSTZYN, ...

This branch were Levites and descended >from Menachem Mendel born around 1840
who had a son shmuel born 1863 who moved to St Louis

Thanks for all of the assistance - much success in your own research

i would suggest researching Probate as a first stop. You can find the
addresses, hours, transportation etc >from E. Guzik's book and much of
this is online at the New York JGS site (jgsny.org under resources).
Probate yields chlldren's married names and addresses, and details
other relationships. Death certificates are sometimes included, even
when they are within the privacy period. Probate is difficult and
expensive >from afar...locally you need the boro (brooklyn, manhattan,
bronx ...) and the year of death. There are indexes in every court so
look for relatives in that index too. In my online course each summer
i offer a field trip to a probate office (see below)

The vital records are online within New York City's privacy limits; if
you see "newer" records, you must adhere to the strict regulations of
the Board of Health. But the marriage licenses (as differentiated from
the marriage certificates) at the Municipal archives will sometimes
yield a goldmine of additional information, such as divorce records.
Additional marriage recordyears >from the City Clerk are now available.

The cemeteries are also worth visiting as many were buried within the
same plots and sometimes you can connect other individuals or find the
names >from second marriages. Sometimes a date of birth will lead you
to the maiden name via SSDI.

Sometimes we think New York City, but we really want another county.
So a good resource is the microfiche index for New York State's vital
records, which are held at the NARA on Bowling Green. Also consider
the individual town halls or archives for many of the Long Island
(Nassau/Suffolk) and Westchester towns.

These are some of what we cover in text and discussion in the New York
research class... every summer online at JewishGen
(www.jewishgen.org/education for calendar and
