Nuova Societa Israelitica-Corcerese #sephardic

Dear Genners and Siggers,

A society of that name existed in Alexandria during the first half
of the 20th century. It was some how associated with "Union des Juifs
Orientaux". Surnames associated with it were RUSSI, CONEGLIANO, FORTE
and SARKIS. Any idea what it was?

Family lived in Rezekne. Is there a town near there called Ostrov? #latvia

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi - I'm researching my brother-in-law's roots. His great
grandparents and descendants are listed in the Rezekne Family Lists
database. Their names were Manka & Temka Lifschitz. The immigration
records show them coming >from Rezekne, and Manka's death record states
that he was born in Rezekne.

However, Temka's maiden name was Spilka, and wuk her Spilka relatives
are listed in the Rezenke Family database, her death record, and the US
naturalization records of her relatives, show that they were born in the
town of "Ostrov".

The closest town that I can find with that name, is Ostrov, Pskov, which
is in Russia, not in Latvia. This is a fair distance away. In 1900,
there were about 980 Jews living there.

I know that Ostrov is a fairly common name (Jewishgen states that there
about 100 towns with that name). Does anybody else have Latvian
descendants, who came >from such a town? I did search for that town's
name in the Latvian database, but there was barely any mention of a town
with such a name.

Thanks for any help.

How to use Google Translate to translate Page of Testimony? #general

Susan Goldsmith
 

Dear Genners,

Is there a way to paste the text of a Page of Testimony into Google Translate
to ascertain a submitter's address written in Hebrew or Russian?

Thank you,
Susan Goldsmith

MODERATOR NOTE: As an alternative, since you are just asking for a relative small
bit of handwritten text to be translated, why not post the Page of Testimony on
ViewMate and ask someone to decipher the address?

the All Galicia Database--a database that is free and available to
all. See: https://search.geshergalicia.org/.

This update refers to the Josephine and Franciscan Surveys Project, an
ongoing research initiative of Gesher Galicia, focused on early
population censuses. In the past four years, 52,900 records extracted

Same person listed on two passenger manifests within ten days #general

Yaakov Saxon
 

In researching my ggrandmother's family, the Taitelbaum's and
Berzhansky's, I came across something quite strange: two passenger
manifests, both listing a Mendel Bersansky, both 34 years old,
married, shoemakers, >from Utien (one says Zian but presumably a
spelling mistake). Both records are >from November 1904:

One sailed >from Hamburg, Nov 5th - 16th.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JNSW-SPK - line 9 in manifest

The other sailed >from Rotterdam, Nov 11th - 25th.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JNSC-WWL - line 2 in manifest

The dates (seemingly) make it impossible for it to be the same person
on both boats.

On the other hand, it seems incredibly improbable that there were two
people with such exact same stats, and in fact I can only find records
of one such person, a Mendel Berzhansky, shoemaker, son of Ezra, born
1871, >from Utien/Utena.

I wonder if anyone has run into something like this before and/or has any ideas.

I have a somewhat fanciful idea, that perhaps Mendel bought two
different tickets, and then someone else, perhaps his cousin's
husband, my gggrandfather Max Teitelbaum, travelled under his name.
Perhaps evading the draft or something similar.

I've also considered the possibility that it was the same person, and
he was rejected the first time, and "snuck back into another line",
but that also seems improbably, as the ship ought to have records of
who was supposed to be on. Also, on the earlier manifest, next to his
name is stamped "admitted", so I assume that means he wasn't rejected.

Can anybody think of a better idea? Is my idea of someone else
traveling under Mendel's name plausible?

Yaakov Saxon

Ps. Thanks for the responses to my earlier post. No resolution of the
mystery yet, but I did get a couple of nice responses, including some
very good info on the Taitelbaum's in Odessa.

Hello researchers who are coming to the conference in less than a week.

My offer for a personal consultation for matters related to
Bessarabia/Moldova is still in place. I already have a number of
people we already scheduled for the consultation, but if you did not,
you still can. Please send me an email.

Bessarabia SIG will participate at Share Fair, and if someone wants to
help at our Bessarabia SIG booth, to greet new comers, to let people
know about our presence at the conference, and more, please email me.
If you can spend 1-1.5 hour at our booth, that would be a very good
help.

All the best,
