GENANDES name change #general

arthur siegel
 

I have been looking in vain for certain records of my
great-grandfather Harry GENANDES, who came to the U.S. c.1900 and who,
I am told, had changed his name at some point after immigration to
Genandes >from some, unknown original surname. Thus, I have been
unable to locate naturalization records (I know >from later census
records that he was naturalized), ship manifest records, or even
marriage records. He most likely changed his name after he got
married, and I haven't even been able to locate such records relating
to his wife. Does anybody have any ideas how to go about puzzling out
what his original surname might have been, in order to finally track
down these records? Nobody in my family has any idea either, so I
don't even really have a starting point. Has anybody else ever come
across this problem?

Thanks,

Arthur Siegel

Meaning of "Rit Spaniol" and "Rit Occidental" #bessarabia

Marilyn Robinson
 

I have been reading some information about schools and temples in Bessarabia.
I've seen the terms, "Rit Spaniol" and "Rit Occidental" used. Are they meant as a reference to
Sephardic and Ashkenazi? For example, "Bisericile Israelite-de Rit Occidental", "Bisericile Israelite de
Rit Spaniol", and " Scoalel de Rit Spaniol din?
