Sadly, I must inform you that Jennie SEYMOUR of NY, NY died on 17 Aug 2014 after a
3 month illness. She was just 2 months short of her 88th birthday. I answered her
posting below and offered to help as I am a New Yorker & do a lot of NY research.
We have remained in touch ever since. I met Jennie & David Priever 2 years ago to
brainstorm. Jennie was a petite, feisty lady with a lot of determination & energy.
She was convinced that since she started her life at Bellevue & I am a Bellevue
nurse that it was a good omen & meant to be. Many people helped her enormously
over her 60 year search. I don't know everyone's names but wish to acknowledge &
thank the ones she often mentioned to me. They are: Jim Yarin, Gary Mokotoff,
David Saunders, Eileen Gilbert, Barbara Zimmer, Guy Haber, David Priever, Gaye
Tannenbaum, many members of NYJGS, Joyce, Carla & Carol Barbieri >from JCCA. She
was assisted by the staff at various libraries & organizations & had an endearing
way of soliciting their help. No service planned per her daughter in FL.
Jennie died knowing her birth name.

Hello- I was a foundling. In 1926, left at 57 E. 100 St. by young unidentified girl
about 18 with a Mrs. Jennie SHULMAN. She failed to return & Nov 4th policeman
brought me to Bellevue Hospital where I remained for 3 weeks. My photo appeared on
front page of NY Daily Mirror. I was then transferred to Hebrew Home for Infants in
Bronx for a month. I first learned of name Jennie ABZUG when I obtained my Bellevue
discharge card but do not know if name was assigned. I have been searching records
my entire adult life & would like to know the truth about my identity.

Adopted at age 3. I have searched at NYPL, Municipal Archives, American-Jewish
Historical Society, John Jay College of Medicine police records, Jewish Child
Care Assoc, Louise Wise Adoption Agency. I know this info may not be of interest
to most people, but I need to get it out in the hope that someone may know
something meaningful, anything.
My sincere thanks. Jennie Seymour

INTRO researching NEUSTADT family from Posen/Poznan, Prussia/Poland #germany

Marion Weber <weber_genealogy@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I joined the group some weeks ago. I have been doing genealogy
research for seven years. I consider myself to be intermediate
in doing German Jewish Genealogy research. I live in Stuttgart
in the South of Germany. My native language is German and I also
know English and French. I consider myself advanced in using a
computer. My experience in using the Internet is intermediate.

My primary research goals now are to find out everything about the
great great great grandfather of my husband and his family.

NEUSTADT - seeking any information about the parents and the wife of
Dr. Ludwig NEUSTADT, born 1801 in Posen and passed away in Berlin 1887.

He studied in Berlin, worked as a doctor in Posen and moved to Berlin
in 1874/75. His father was the merchant Jacob NEUSTADT in Posen, his
mother Henriette SPIRO. I only know the names of these two.

STARGARD - Ida was the wife of Ludwig NEUSTADT. She must be dead when
he drew up his last will in 1871. That ist all I know about her life.
Her father was called Louis STARGARD and he was a 'Rittergutsbesitzer'
(owner of a manor) in Seegenfelde. So it is written in an old
handwritten family tree. But wherever I look I can't find a Louis
or Ludwig STARGARD in Seegenfelde or elsewhere. Ida must have a
brother Walter STARGARD, who lived in Berlin in the 1880s.

Who are the children of Ludwig and Ida NEUSTADT? I know Jacob Eduard,
born in Posen in 1850. He moved to Stuttgart in the late 1870s and
worked for the MOSSE Company. His life in Stuttgart is well-known.

But Ludwig Neustadt mentioned in his last will a daughter Henriette
Hedwig Sophie and her husband Isaac GRAU. And there must be another
daughter because one of the executors of his last will (written in 1871)
is another son-in-law: Albert LUDWIG. He probably died in 1900 because
he is listed as a houseowner in Berlin until 1900.

A lot of question marks. Who can help?

Sackshiver #lodz #poland

Dave Harris <davesplace@...>
 

Good Afternoon
I am new to this mailing list and to Jewish genealogy in general. I have
a 2 x Gt Grandfather who I am trying to trace. His name was anglicised as
Harris Sackshiver, I am let to believe the correct spelling was
Sochaczewer?

He was born in 1863 Ciechanow, Mazowieckie, Poland.
His father was Moses Sackshiver born 1821 no reference to place other
than Poland. Harris had a wife named Annie Newman she was born in 1861 in
Germany.

Any advice or information would be very much appreciated.

Thank you
Dave Harris

shtetl >from the comfort of your home, or use your GPS to locate places
on a Jewish heritage trip or trail.

I have just returned >from New York where in combination with Oscar
Israelowitz's book: Jewish Heritage Trail of New York, I used GPS on
my mobile phone to locate Jewish heritage sites. I was thus able to plan
and enjoy without wasting time and energy, and so had an amazing
experience.

I also successfully used the GPS on my mobile phone during my 10 day
drive around Lithuania and Latvia this May.

Re: Cause of death: Syphilis #lithuania

Stephen Weinstein
 

The person might not have had syphilis at all.

This issue was discussed at length in the Latvia SIG discussion group
a few years ago. I will briefly address a few points. You can go
through the old posts in the Latvia SIG for more detail. Most of it
should be applicable to Lithuania as well.

The original records were written in Russian, in an alphabet that has
been obsolete for almost a century, except possibly in Bulgaria (after
the Bolshevik Revolution, the Soviet Union adopted a simplified
alphabet instead of using the one that had been used under the Czars).
As a result, the spellings on the records are not likely to match
modern spellings.

The translations of Latvia death records were done by a French artist,
who knew multiple languages, but was not a physician and might not
have known obscure medical terminology.

For the cause of death, some of the records list a word which Google
translates as "Tabes". The word "Tabes" has several meanings, and it
is not clear which of these is the one that Google means. One of
these meanings is a complication of untreated syphilis. It is now
rare, because syphilis normally gets treated before this complication
develops, but it would have been more common when there was not yet an
effective treatment for syphilis.

So, there are several possibilities:
1. Misdiagnosis in the 19th century when modern diagnostic tests were I
not available
2. "Tabes" could be an incorrect translation
3. The word could refer to one of the other conditions also called
"tabes", in which case "tabes" would be a correct translation, but
there is no connection to syphilis. It's like seeing a word
translated as "right", but not knowing whether it means the correct or
it means the opposite of "left".
4. It could be syphilis.

I think it would be interesting to see if there were more deaths from
this cause in places that had more divorces. (I would assume that
both divorce and syphilis would be more common in places with more
adultery, and that syphilis outbreaks would lead to divorce, and that
divorce makes it easier for syphilis to spread, but I don't really
know any statistics on any of this.) If the divorce rate seems to be
tied to the frequency of this cause of death, that would suggest it is
syphilis; if there is no relationship to divorce, then it's more
likely to be some other medical condition.)

Do you think this was an accurate diagnosis?

Would Rivka have been aware that she had syphilis during her lifetime?
Would it have been a source of shame to her and her family? Presumably her
husband had it, so would it have been a source of shame for him as well,

I'm just trying to get a sense of societal norms and pressures.

Kinnuifor Zusman? #lithuania

Peter Cohen <peter.cohen@...>
 

I have been trying to locate Zusman Rotkovitz of Mikhaliskis Lithuania,
born in the late 1830s or 1840s. The only thing I know about him is that
his name appears as the father of Hyman Rothkowitz (1870 - 1942). i.e.
Chaim Boruch ben Zusman.

Not only do I not see anyone named Zusman Rotkowitz in the ALD or any of
the Vilna area data, there are very few people named Zusman in the ALD.
This leads me to suspect that there is a kinnui for Zusman, and if he
appears in any of our databases,it is under some other name than Zusman.
I have seen a reference that says Zelig can be a kinnui for Zusman.
Are there any other names that could be kinnuim for Zusman?

House Numbers #galicia

Steve Jaron
 

Hello,

I had a quick question and I apologize if it has been asked before.
Is it reasonable to assume that three family groups, two with the same
surname and one where the matriarch has the same surname have the
same "house number" are related?

I have been trying to figure out somethings in Zloczow in regards to a
record I believe is my 3x Great Grandfather. (I need to find a marriage
record in Tarnopol that is not of GG or JRI). If my assumptions are
correct it adds a generation back as well 2 third great uncles and
shows a double cousin relationship.

Thanks for your patience with me.

-Steve

Currently focusing specifically on my Krochmal ancestors.
Some other surnames and towns -
Tarnopol - Rothstein, Goldbrum, Heller, Seid, Sirkus, Fruchtmann,

"Shosnowitz Austria" in 1912 #austria-czech

mcarroll@...
 

I'm helping a friend with her Halpern ancestors. In July 1912 Rebecca
Halpern and two of her children arrived in New York City >from Rotterdam on
the S.S. Noordam. The passenger list identifies them as coming >from
"Shosnowitz, Austria." We have no other information on the family's origin
except that they spoke German at home.

The closest match in the JewishGen Communities Database appears to be what
is now called Sosnowiec, Poland, 156 miles SSW of Warszawa. But the database
also lists Sosnowica, Poland, 102 miles ESE of Warszawa. Both are listed as
having been in the Russian Empire before WW I.

Is Sosnowiec Poland the best guess, given the available evidence, for where
the Halpern family originated? Thanks for any help.

(This is my first JewishGen post; apologies for any infelicities.)
