people who are researching their family histories. Maureen estimates
that she?s studied over 10,000 photos in the past decade and The Wall
Street Journal recently called her ?the nation?s foremost historical
photo detective.? If you would like to have her analyze your own
family photographs, she will be offering 15 minute individual
consultations at her table in the vendor room. To sign up send Maureen
an email (mtaylor@taylorandstrong.com) and attach scans of the
picture(s) you?re interested in having her examine. She?ll fill you

Latvia SIG #Latvia Yizkor Book Project, May 2010 #latvia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Happily the month of May saw a continued hubbub of activity in the
Yizkor Book project. So many out there are contributing to the
success of the project and at every opportunity I send out my thanks
to the coordinators, volunteers and translators for the incredible
work they are doing in keeping the flame of our lost families and
communities alive. If there is a Yizkor Book that has yet to appear
in our index and it is close to your heart, please contact me and I

RUBENSTEIN - Chicago/New York #usa

dan.henderson@...
 

I am eager to learn about our ancestor Louis RUBENSTEIN. He, and Henrietta
PEARLSTEIN lived in Chicago, she died about 1880 in Chicago, he then put two
children in an orphanage (Bellefaire, Cleveland, Ohio), came back to pick
them up a couple years later, then "disappeared!"

Louis RUBENSTEIN was born about 1840, we believe in Germany. He married
Henrietta PEARLSTEIN about 1860 in Germany. They came to the US after their
first two daughters, Carrie and Lena, were born (in Germany), and before
Rachel Rose RUBENSTEIN was born, in Chicago, IL. The family believes
Louis's name was Alexander and was changed to Louis upon arrival in the US.

The 1880 Chicago census has them in Jefferson Street, Chicago with their six
children. The census has them >from Germany. When Henrietta died (in
childbirth with son Maurice), between 1879 and 1884, Louis RUBENSTEIN put
two of his youngest children, Jacob and Samuel, into the Jewish Orphans Home
in Shaker Heights, Cleveland, Ohio, October, 1884.

The records there at Bellefaire say that they were later "discharged to L
RUBENSTEIN who has remarried." Family lore is that he and his new wife
moved to New York City where he died in a Jewish old folks home, around
1910-1920?? Jacob and Samuel RUBENSTEIN changed their surname to REULER.

There's some evidence that Alexander RUBENSTEIN was Louis' father, born
about 1814 in Germany. Of course, I am interested in Louis and Henrietta's
birth and marriage place and date, parents, . .. . . . . . all about them
prior to their arrival in the U.S.

But, we have lost Louis as he retrieved his two younger children.
So, here in this posting, I am searching for clues to discover what happened
to him when he left the orphanage in Cleveland, July, 1888. Where did he
go, who did he marry, where did he die, etc.

I hope someone can shed some light here or provide a few clues.

Thank you. Dan Henderson, New Orleans, La. dan.henderson@cox.net

INTRO - researching FULD family from Sichenhofen, Hesse #germany

Sarah Bernarde
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for five
years. I consider myself to be a beginner in doing German Jewish Genealogy
research. I live in Leighton Buzzard in Bedfordshire, England. My native
language is English and I also know Spanish. I consider myself fairly advanced
in using a computer. My experience in using the Internet is extensive. I use
several Internet browsers.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of my grandparents, of
my great grandparents and of my great great grandparents.

My primary research goals now are to find out about the FULD family of
Sichenhofen, when they came to the UK, and who was left behind in the late
1800s.
