Thanks re: Sounds like Scarbbuba #general

I would like to thank everyone that responded to my question related to
Scarbuba.
The ones that seem to be the closest to the one I think was the correct
one was that the word was not one word but two."Skarb Bub {Buba} meaning
treasure-brother daily use would be "very good friend"
Seems like a common greeting for a man that was very well liked.
Thanks again

Fate of Jewish residents of Neheim und Huesten (Husten u umlaut) SITE CITE - BOOK CITE #germany

John Paul Lowens <jplowens@...>
 

The most recent Yizkor Book Translation Project report included a link
to this site. It's unusual for these reports to
contain names of towns in western Germany so I used the link to see
what was there:

http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Neheim/Neheim.html

At first glance, there seemed to be no data on the page. With help
from YB Project manager Lance Ackerfeld, the link
to the data was enlarged so it's now easier to find.

Translated >from the source:

" Geschichte und Schicksale juedischer
Mitbuerger aus Neheim und Huesten
(The History and fate of the Jewish citizens >from Neheim and Husten),
Editor: Werner Saure, Published: Heimatbund Neheim-Husten, 1988 (Ger 120 pages)

Lithuania/Russian Empire- Town Nova Masta- 1880 to 1895 #general

BRENERDA@...
 

Need help in identifying the town of Nova Masta. This birth town is
consistently listed in Naturalization documents by four members of the
Ben(n) family that emigrated between 1899 and 1910. They arrived in NYC,
Philadelphia and Baltimore.

In early documents it is in the Russian Empire and in later Lithuania.
This is what I suspected.

Using the various JewishGen tools, I think it may be Nowe Miasto which
is now Naujamiestis, Lithuania.

Just checking with the group to see if anyone can provide more or
different information.

Thank you.

Seeking MEISTER #general

Scott Ehrlich <scott@...>
 

Greetings to all:

My great grandmother was Sarah MEISTER who married Harry (Aaron) Newman.

Sarah's ship manifest shows she came with daughter to Boston, MA in 1900.

Sarah's parents, per her death certificate, were Isaac and Libby.

A Newman cousin relayed they vaguely recalled Sarah had a brother
Usher Meister who purchased land in New York.

Sarah and Harry's daughter, Lena, my mom's mom, became a US citizen
and noted place of birth was Vilna.

With the knowledge of Isaac Meister and Libby Meister being parents of
Sarah Meister and Usher (Abraham?) Meister, if these Meister names
possibly have meaning to you, please let me know. I really want to
expand knowledge of my Meister relatives based on the information
presented here, which is all I know at this time.

Thank you very much.

Re: Ozydow (Ozhydiv), Galicia, 19th Century Life #general

Lisa Hunter posted: " I would be grateful for any information about
life in the latter half
of the 19th Century in the small Galician town of Ozydow (Ozhydiv),
now in Ukraine. Several generations of one branch of my family were
born and lived their lives there, but I've been unable to unearth much
about the town, beyond a hazardous train derailment occurring in recent
times, and nothing at all about how/why Jews came to live there..'

elisa...google is just one resource; why not use all the wonderful
resources at JewishGen??
here's what i would do...
first go to our community pages and click on gazetteer...thats where i
found Ozhidiv, Ozhidov, Ozhiduv, Ozhydiv at 4958/2449 in the Ukraine.
The town did not have a significant jewish population in early 1900s and
is not on our community pages...but appears on our gazetteer of *all*
towns in eastern europe.

click on the target icon for towns within 10 miles of Ozhidiv and
search for the nearest "Jewish" town...that is likely to be where the
market, synagogue and records were/are. And where you might find the
information you seek.

I found Olesko, 3 miles east which has a JewishGen community page...
but only 18 researchers on JGFF, like nearby Sokoluvka at 4.5 miles
but Bialy Kamien at 5 miles and Sassow at 7.5 miles have strong Jewish
genealogist interest...let me suggest you research those neighboring
towns...the life would be fairly similar...

if you want to know about the town life..i think books are the best
source. Very pertinent is Suzan Wynnes' "The Galitizianas: The Jews of
Galicia" and Andrew Zalewski's novels. For why and how they made the
trip, I especially like the first chapter of Irving Howe's great book,
"The World of Our Fathers, the Journey of the East European Jews to
America and the Life They Found and Made." Lastly, If you query our
25 years of archived messages...you'll find many other recommended
books

how about searching JGFF for your surnames keeping in mind the
neighboring towns??
(good that you registerred for your town on JGFF so that folks can
find you...but i would suggest adding your name to your JGFF
registration because folks dont always want to write to a
number...easy to do, just go to "myprofile" in the upper right corner
of the JewishGen page and click on it...click on "change my contact
information" then scroll down...by the way, once you are there you can
easily see your discussion group subscriptions, your JGFF entries and

Does anyone know if there is an archive which might hold records
related to his service or related to the history of Nowy Targ and the
Russian Army's activity there in around this time.
Following my previous reply on this subject, it was established that
town in question is not Nowy Targ but Turgaisk located in modern
Kazachstan. Turgaiskiy region is located some 80 miles NNE >from the
