FINKEL family from Torczyn #general

Finkel Ruslan <finkelruslan@...>
 

Hi all

My grandfather was born in Torczyn (Torchin) in the Volhynia Gubernia; Lutsk
(Luck) in 1907. This area was at one time Poland. His father name was
Leib. My grandfather has a brother Rachmiel. Rachmiel`s family immigrated
somewhere, i dont know exactly what country.

May be somebody knows something about FINKEL family >from Torczyn. I
am interested where Leib Finkel and his wife buried. What happened
with Rachmiel`s family?

If you see any names or information that may help
in my search, or connect to yours, please let me
know.

Re: Home congregation--19th Hungarian custom #general

In response to Alex Miller's query, Tom Klein wrote: For government administrative
purposes, b/m/d registration was by religious group and settlement, so i believe
it was the usual practice to record a person's death as a note on their birth
registry. This would imply that their death was recorded in the place of their
birth, even if they married and lived elsewhere. but ordinarily, i doubt that
this would be considered as "membership".

The word normally used in the Habsburg Empire was "zustandig" with umlaut "a".
The subject of Zustandigkeit and its complexities is worthy of a few years'
study.

more FINBERG from Massachusetts/Texas (Elias) #lithuania

MandJMeyers <mandjmeyers@...>
 

My GGGF was Eliyahu/Elyash ben Leib FINBERG who lived in Gelvan near
Vilna in the 1850s.
I'm told that there are/were FINBERG relatives in Massachusetts where my
grandmother and her siblings moved but no one remembers who they were.

I've found one and only one Elias FINBERG in the US census records.
Between the census and googling around, I've found the following:

Simon (born c.1860) and Rosa Miriam (nee Birnbaum) FINBERG emigrated
around 1873. In 1900, they were living in Boston and had 6 children,
Bessie, Elias, Rachel/Ruth, Martha, Chester and Annie. Elias (b.1883
in Boston) went to Boston Latin School and Harvard, became a cotton broker
in Dallas where he married Ophelia Hess TILLMAN and had 2 children,
Francisca Robin and Elias Junior. Per SSDI records, Elias died in 1981
in Ormond Beach, Florida and Elias Junior died in Dallas in 2004. Also,
Chester lived in Chelsea in 1917 when he registered for WWI (worked at
Filene's) and lived in Waban with his wife Anne when he registered for
the WWII draft, (worked for Gilchrist) and died in NY in 1981. Chester
is listed among the 1913 Harvard Alumni.

Simon, Rosa and Chester are found in the 1920 census living in
Brookline, where the name is spelled FEINBERG.

It is possible that Simon was a brother of my GGM Feiga (nee FINBERG)
LANDSMAN and if I can find the burial place for Simon, I will be able
to test that theory (he's not in JOBWR and post-1930 death indices don't
exist online).

If this sounds familiar, please contact me privately at
