Searching: IBRAM/RUTKIEWICZ families in Lomza area #poland

Avigdor Ben-Dov <avigdorbd@...>
 

Multiple marriages mean more researching problems--

My family research currently centers on the RUTKIEWICZ surname (with
allowances for spelling variations).
Recently in my research I became particularly interested in a Sora
Leia Rutkiewicz, b. ca. 1864 Penza,
daughter of Moszk Jankielowicz (RUTKIEWICZ).

Sora Leia is listed as having married a Chaim IBRAM in Piontnica in
1886. But I found an earlier marriage
of the same Chaim in ca. 1860 to a Jospa, daughter of Apram [Abram?].

I thought at first that Chaim quite likely had a first marriage (in
1860) with no children and therefore married
Sora Leia in ca. 1886. End of story. But not quite!

The birthdates of Chaim's children (in the db index) are closer to
the date of the 2nd marriage, so I believe
it supports my first assumption about remarrying for children.
Nevertheless, I continued digging and sought
further evidence.

But quite astoundingly, I suddenly discovered another marriage for
Chaim to a Joska KURLAND in ca. 1882, daughter of Aria (Aryeh?)
in Wizna. Could this be a transliteration error >from the source documents?
The names Jospa and Joska are very similar and the fathers have the
same first initial. So perhaps Chaim had multiple marriages?!
If so, which wife bore him three known children? Furthermore, how
could Chaim marry ca. 1882 in Lomza and again in 1886 in Wizna?
What happened to disrupt life? It doesn't make sense.

Can anyone sort out these family ties or give me some suggestions to
get some answers?

I sincerely appreciate and compliment JRI-Poland's efforts to provie
online viewing (>from the comfort of home) of documents in the Polish
archives and my experience has been very positive in using this resource,
which I acknowledge with thanks.

By the way, I have kept a paper trail of the research done in the
above topic with sources. Please contact me if you would like an
annotated copy..

Re: MITTEILER info required - Reward for Assistance #romania

Vivian Kahn
 

George,

Have you checked the JewishGen Hungary database? I found lots of records for
MITTELLER/MITTEILER including births of son Ede (1881 NOT 1891) and daughters
Julesa (1876) and Eszter (1889) that identify Fani's birthplace as Nagykaroly.
(Appears that Ede/Eduard settled in Nagyvarad). Fami gave birth to Eszter in
1889, which means she was probably born about 1850.

There are quite a few records for MITTELLER/MITTEILER >from Nagykaroly. I suggest
that you thoroughly search these records and also check the original records on
LDS 642919, which may have additional information. You could also broaden your
search to look for MITTLER and similar names >from Szatmar megye.

My Great Grandmother was Fanni Mitteiler., also written as Mittheiler or

Fanni was married to Majer Berger born circa 1837 in Szamossalyi and died
March 25, 1909.

Many of the Mitteiler family were >from Tasnad, or Nagy Karoly or Tisza Korod or
Nagyvarad/Oradea or Kolozsvar or Czegeny

Ideally a birth record for Fanni Mitteiler or the marriage record for Fanni and
Majer which shows her parents names.

Translation request: postcards in Yiddish #romania

Hello,

A fresh trove of family materials have surfaced with the death of an elder. These
two postcards >from a group of several appear to have been sent >from abroad. I
would like a full translation of everything on each card.

The first is a postcard that may have been sent >from Orgeyev, Bessarabia to Abram
Spiwak in New York City in 1910. I’m not sure what first name this person is
using for Abram - it appears to be "Sam." If you see something else there, please
comment.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM66024

The second is a handwriting I think I recognize >from a branch of the family, but I
have never before seen the pyramid or odd numeral in the stamp box. A full
translation of this Yiddish message would be a great help. If anyone can comment
on the stamp box, please do.
