Johann Georg Friedrich SIGEL ( SIEGEL ) and Eva Maria BEHRINGER from Ohmden near Stuttgart. #germany

Amoz Chernoff
 

Am trying to discover information about a family living in Ohmden in the
early 1800s. The particulars are as follows:

The oldest generation was composed of Johann Georg Friedrich Sigel
(Siegel) and Eva Maria Behringer, >from Ohmden.
The next generation was Maria Dorothea Sigel (or Siegel), 1809-1890, and
Jakob Schaeufele, (later changed to Schiefly),
1808-1864. They were married in 1835 in Ohmden.
Their oldest child, John Schiefly (1836-1920), and his sister, Lucy Ann
Schiefly, lived in America after 1848.

Any help in finding additional information, or the location of records
about these families, would be greatly appreciated.

I, together with help >from JCR-UK (www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/) and JGSGB
(www.jgsgb.org.uk/) and the Federation of Synagogues in London have recentl
y constructed a searchable web-site of over 58,000 internments at the Feder

grave location and a reference number for more information.

It is still in a test mode and currently at www.jgsgb.org.uk/edmonton-and-

Saevitz/Sayevitch (and variant spellings) and Troshansky from Ukraine; cigarette making in the East End #unitedkingdom

mary@...
 

Research into the ancestry and journeys of my husband's paternal
grandparents, Nathan Saevitz and Rebecca Troshansky, who arrived in London c
1905, has so far not been very fruitful, so I am hoping that there are
knowledgeable forum members who might be able to fill in some gaps for us.
Here is what I have found out:

On the 1911 census Nathan (b Romny, Ukraine, c 1877) and his wife Rebecca
(Bessie), b Kremenchug, Ukraine)were living at 37 Diggon St, Stepney, with
four of their children. Nathan worked as a cigarette maker. Judging by his
handwriting on the census form, which he completed himself, he was well
educated. He was a Levite, as confirmed by DNA testing of his great
grandson, which reveals that he was directly descended >from the Horowitz
rabbinical line which is currently being researched in depth by the grouup
of geneticists led by Doron Behar (more details of the DNA results are
available to anyone interested). Nathan was married c 1900 according to the
census form. Subsequently the family moved to Cressy House, and then to
Stepney Green Buildings. The children comprised Herschel (Harry b Kriukov
near Kremenchug, Ukraine c 1902); Louis (b Kriukoov c 1903); Joseph (b
Stepney 1905); Barnett (b Stepney 1908); Esther (b Stepney 1916) and
Gertie/Trudy (b Stepney 1917).

I have found other possible Saevitz relatives living in Stepney in 1911 but
attempts to find out what happened to them have failed to produce any leads.
They are Myer Sayovitch and his wife Esther, age 50 and 40, born "Raman,
Russia", which I believe to be Romny, who were living at 45 Cressy Houses
and had been married for 12 years. They have included on their census return
a son, Morris, age 22, who is stated to be married; because he was "not
living at home" the enumerator has crossed out his name. I have found his
birth (in London) but nothing more.

Searches for Nathan's birth have failed to produce anything but I have found
what may be births of sisters/half-sisters, Their births were registered in
Romny, and the parents are stated to be Movsha Aron Gersh/Hersch Gilelev
Saevich and his wife Ester Haya. It's possible that Movsha (described as a
"retired soldier and citizen") married twice. I also have details of
ceremonies at which Movsha co-officiated, which I assume was a consequence
of his status as a Levite.

There is a family in New York, the Terrs, to whom our Saevitz line is
related according to DNA testing, and they state that their family
(previously known by the name Abramovitsch [significant given the patronymic
of Movsha?]), came >from "Neyshtot" or Negnevichi in Lithuania; so far I have
found no connection of our Saevitz family line with Lithuania. There are
records (e.g. on Ancestry) of other Saevitzes, but I have not yet been able
to establish whether these are related to ours. Some >from Romny took refuge
in Tashkent in Uzbekistan during WW2; I am trying to find out more about
these.

I would be very grateful indeed for information >from people who believe they
have links to Saevitz/Savevitch/Sayovitch, and am happy to share all the
information I have been able to unearth. Any information about cigarette
making in the Stepney area (which I believe took place both in the home and
outside it) would also be of interest to me.

Thank you, and apologies for the length of this query.

Sayevitch continued #unitedkingdom

mary@...
 

Further to my previous query, research today has revealed that Meyer
Saevitch [sic] died in 1911 at "Clapham Buildings, Webber Row, Waterloo
Road, Surrey" according to the probate register which named as administrator
his son, Morris Sayevitch [sic], tobacconist. I have now estalished that
Morris married Susan Samuels in 1911 and their son Harry M Sayevitch was
born in Barnet, Herts, in 1917. If anyone has information on Harry I would
be very grateful if they would let me know.
