1859 -1860 Electors lists for Ariogala, Babtai, Cekiske, Dotnuva,
Josvainiai, Kedainiai, Krakes, Rumsiskes, Veliuona, Vilijampole, and
Zeimiai.
1860 Tax Payers lists for , Cekiske, Grinkiskis, Krakes, Rumsiskes,
Seredzius, Veliuona, and Zeimiai.
1867 Tax Payers Lists for Babtai and Vilkija
1870 Tax Payers >from Cekiske, Seredzius and Vilijampole, Grinkiskis,

Subject: Question re: Immigration Ports of Entry
From: David Osachy <osachy@gmail.com>
Date: Sat, 20 Oct 2018 16:56:09 -0400
X-Message-Number: 1

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone explain (or offer a theory) why a Romanian Jewish immigrant c=
oming
from Europe in 1903, whose final destination was New York City or
Pittsburgh, would disembark at the port of St. John in New Brunswick,
Canada, then travel overland through Quebec and enter the United
States at St. Albans, Vermont?

What could that strange route be about? Why not go straight to Ellis
Island? Was this an issue of money, paperwork, or perhaps something
else? If it helps, the ship was the Lake Megantic, which I am
guessing sailed >from Liverpool though I am not sure.

Thank you in advance,

Rabbi David Osachy
Jacksonville, Florida

Hello,
My family came in 1900 and 1903 traveling that exact route >from Belarus. I am
assuming it was cheaper that way. My grandmother traveled with five children in
1903 and they came in late December which must have been still cheaper. They
were brave people.

Searching for information about Izso REITER #hungary

Amit N
 

Hi,

I believe I had managed to identify someone in an un-named family
photo as Izso REITER. I suppose the first name is a short for Izidor.
Now I am looking for any information about him. He was the son of Mari
and Mano REITER who probably lived in Szeged, Hungary, and I assume he
was born somewhere between 1870-1890.
Unfortunately, my search in JewishGen records did not bring up any
records with his name.
Does anyone have any information about this man? Does anyone here have
him on their family tree? I'm very interested.

Thank you,
Amit Naor

Dr Alina Brewda #general

Russ Gillott <russgillott@...>
 

hello
I wonder if anyone can help me please.
I was born at the Royal Free Hospital in north London in 1955. my
mother lost many pregnancies before me and was eventually referred to
an obstetrician who told her to go home and put her feet up, which she
did! however she later developed pre-eclampsia which resulted in me
being delivered 6+ weeks prematurely by caesarean section. my mother
told me the obstetrician was a Polish woman, and I feel I owe her my
life.
recently it dawned on me (well, while watching an episode of Foyle's
War) that she was probably a Jewish refugee and I wanted to find out
more about her.
my research points to the most likely candidate being Alina
Brewda-Bialostocki, an amazing woman who survived Auschwitz then
settled in north London, married a Polish lawyer Szymon Bialostocki,
and continued practicing as an obstetrician and gynaecologist.
however I cannot find definitive proof that she is the woman I am
looking for, i.e. that after the creation on the NHS she worked at
least part of the time at the Royal Free Hospital.
I have bought the book R.J. Minney wrote about her and it ends in
1947! the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists have no
information about her, but their archivist wants to find out more!
The Royal Free has no information, my birth records have disappeared
and my mother's records have been destroyed.
if any of you have any information about Alina, her husband, or any
Polish doctors working at the Royal Free after the war I would be so
grateful to hear >from you!
I must add that jewishgen have been so helpful in providing me with
advice and links to follow.
my name is Maria Gillott - I am using my husband's email account as I
have an nhs one and cannot change it to plain text.
you can get back to me via this email or via maria.gillott@nhs.net
many thanks
