Re: Occupation: Decalogiste #france

I would agree with Mathilde, rather than Eliane.
The word very much resembles the German "Zehngeboteschreiber" for a
Sofer STa"M, scribe of holy scriptures like Thora, Tefilin and
Mezuzot.
But I cannot claim to have seen the word in this or other use.

numerous dates of birth for the same man #general

DrYattz <winwinsit@...>
 

I'd like some opinions as to why a Ukrainian Jewish immigrant to
Philadelphia would present a significant range of inconsistent
birthdates. When I first researched Joseph Corn's genealogy, I
discarded many documents because of age and birthdate mismatches,
which I have now revisited and confirmed most to be those of the same
man.

So far, Joseph Corn has been documented as having been born in:

1886 (5 September) in his birth record in Shargorod, Ukraine: 28th of
Tevet, 5646.

1884 in his ship passage of 1904, giving his age as 20.

1881 (26 May) in his 1st marriage application of 6 October 1906.

1886 (5 January) in his Declaration of Intent to Naturalize of 1914.

1886 (5 January) in his Petition for Naturalization of 1916.

1887 (September) in his draft registration of 1917.

1885 in his 1920 census listing, giving his age as 35.

1883 (26 January) in his 2nd marriage application of 6 June 1928.

1884 in his 1930 census listing, giving his age as 46.

1882 (15 February) in his WWII draft registration of 1942.

1882 in his death certificate, also citing his age as 74 on 4 January
1956.

1881 derived >from his headstone, giving his age as 75 with a date of
death as 4 January 1956.

My own hypotheses include 1) difficulty converting calendars, 2)
deliberate self-misrepresentation, 3) some defiance of clerks and
record-keepers, 4) dyscalculia, and 5) complete disinterest.

What makes this mystery so pertinent is that I have uncovered evidence
(over the persistent objections of a few of his descendents who insist
he never remarried) of a second wife whom he married a year after the
death of his first. The different census ages initially led me to
conclude it was a different Joseph Corn, but upon obtaining the
marriage applications and finding that he had the same parents and
mispelled his name the same way on other documents, I have no doubt.

This man presents other intriguing contradictions. He worked for his
inlaws in their clothing factory for many years, but when his first
wife died in 1927, they had already been estranged for several years.
There is some speculation that he may have refused to follow tradition
and marry his unwed sister-in-law upon his wife's death. By 1929, his
21-year-old daughter had married, and his 13-year-old son was living
with his maternal grandparents in 1930. His second wife was a
Russian American Jewish widow, but he allegedly died in the bed of his
Christian girlfriend; his daughter (by his first marriage) identified
Joseph's spouse on his death certificate as his deceased first wife,
never acknowledging the second. He has been described by kin as a
"womanizer," a "vagabond," and always seeking money when visiting his
siblings and nephews. On his deathbed, his son - the one who was
raised by his maternal garndparents - told his own son some terrible
secret about Joseph Corn which his grandson intends to carry to his
own grave.

But, the question that puzzles me most: why the inconsistencies of
birthdate?

Seeking information on three sisters #romania

jkt25@...
 

Dear R-M. Siggers:

I am seeking any information on three sisters, who immigrated >from
Bucharest,Romania in 1904. I believe that they entered the USA via
Ellis Island (Castle Garden). The Sisters were: Gussela (Gussie), Rose,
and Clara KIEFERSON. Gussie married Morris DAVIS and had three children,
Herbert,Fanny (Faye) and Beatrice (Beaty). Rose married Arthur ROSENZWEIG
and had six children: Joe, Leo, Fanny, Molly, Pauline, and Ethel. Both
Gussie and Rose lived in New York. Clara married Emil SILVER in St.Louis
and had my Aunt Mary (FELDBLUM) and my Mother, Frances (THRONE).
Clara moved back to New Jersey by 1918.

If anyone has any information on any of the above I would appreciate
a response. I have not been able to find any evidence on their port
of entry, nor the specific town of residence in Romania, other than
it was a small town outside of Bucharest.

Thank you,

Goleszow (Goleschau)- Cement Factory Near Auschwitz #poland

Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

My cousin, Pierre (nee Ephraim in France) CHANOVER, a hidden
child Holocaust survivor, told me just yesterday, that he had learned
his father, Shlomo Yankel nee CHRZANOWER (k/a Jacques in France),
did not die immediately upon his deportation to Auschwitz on
Convoy #5 >from Beaune la Ronde, France on June 28, 1942.

Shlomo Yankel CHRZANOWER apparently was sent to work in the
Portland Cement Factory in or near Goleszow, Poland (Goleschau in
German). We cannot determine for how long Shlomo Yankel worked
in Goleszow before his death in Auschwitz.

Pierre would like to learn his father's actual date of death in order
to properly memorialize his father's death by saying Kadish. Pierre
was 9 years old the last time he saw his father, 68 years ago.

A Google search of Goleszow provides some basic historical
information but no specific documentation of workers as far as I
could tell.

Thanks for any help, information and insights,
