I am not familiar with Kelly St but I think you should look for death

were they were buried, as well as parents names.

ROTHENBERG family (and variant spellings) #general

MikePnina Rothenberg <mikeroth@...>
 

Hi,

I'm trying to locate information about a branch of my ROTHENBERG family
that lived in England. My grandfather, Meyer ROTHENBERG, went from
Ukraine to London around 1900, where his paternal uncle, Berril
ROTHENBERG, lived. Berril had a son Arthur and four daughters,
including one, Eva, who married a Harry ENGLANDER. Another daughter
supposedly married another ENGLANDER. My grandfather married my
grandmother, Amelia (Millie) RINKOWSKY in London, had four sons there
and came to the U.S in 1908. They then had their last child, Rose.

It is possible that some, or all, of the English branch emigrated.

My ROTHENBERG family is Levi.

My grandfather was born in Zhitomir, and his family later moved to
Odessa. His father's name was Elias Benjamin and he preceded my
grandfather to the U.S. My grandfather had a sister ROSE (married to
Abe KOLODENKO). They also emigrated to the U.S. My grandfather also
had a brother (name unkown) who apparently remained in Russia..

Any information or suggestions you can provide about the ROTHENBERG
family >from England would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

STOCKHAMER Family from Rawa Ruska (Rava Russkaya) #general

MikePnina Rothenberg <mikeroth@...>
 

Hi,

I am trying to locate information about my STOCKHAMER family >from Rawa
Ruska (was eastern Galicia, southeastern Poland, and now Rava Russkaya,
Ukraine, a bit west of Lviv). I've located a branch of the family from
the town that I hadn't known about, and am trying to learn how the two
branches are related. I know there are birth records for the town in
the AGAD Archive in Warsaw, going back to at least the 1840's.

Does anyone know about other records and their locations that might shed
some light on how the branches are related? Or birth records going back
further than the 1840's? Does anyone know any STOCKHAMERs who might be
from the town, or come upon any records about the family?
Both branches are Cohens.

Thank you.

German or Romanian Translation Help #general

HWiner@...
 

My Viewmates VM389/399 will soon expire. I still need help with
translations. Could be Romanian or possibly German. Any help
would be appreciated.

I'd like help in translating a postcard to my ggf in Urziceni Romania,
June 1902, >from Berlin. I'm not sure what language it's in, possibly
Romanina or German.
VM398
The text is on a small corner of the postcard titled "Berlin unter wasser
1902" the picture is a scene >from Friedrichstrasse, April 14, 1902.
Apparently, there was a large flood in Berlin, large enough to warrent
printing postcards.

VM399 is the address side of the card. I've scanned it upside down
because I'm interested in the text written around the address, not
necessarily the address.

Thanks

MOSS surname #general

Julia Hill <catseye5@...>
 

Does anyone know if the German surname Moss is Jewish in origin? I was
told that Moss was a Jewish name. My ancestor Henry Moss immigrated from
Hannover, Germany to Georgia sometime between 1820 and 1840.
Any help in this matter will be greatly appreciated.

SEEKING: Descendants of Sam Jeziorowski/Isaacs and Bella Fischler #lodz #poland

John & Diana Terry <jterry@...>
 

Dear Fellow Researchers


Please could someone help me to locate the Descendants, of two of my
Ancestors, who remain unknown to me..

Firstly:- SAM ISAACS, previously known as SZMUL JEZIOROWSKI - USA

Sam left CZESTOCHOWA, in Poland/Russia in 1890 for the USA and eventually
settled in CHICAGO, Illinois. He was in contact with his Main Family,
Parents ISAAC and LAJA and Siblings, GOLDA, ESTHER, SOPHIE, SOLOMON,
ABRAHAM, who also left CZESTOCHOWA (in 1894) and they settled in London,
England. SAM was in contact with his Family in England up until 1933, when
his Sister-in-law, Celia, to whom he was writing, died.

I have tried without success to find any known whereabouts of this Man, who
apparently, like his Main Family, changed his surname >from JEZIOROWSKI to
ISAACS but might have continued being known as Sam JEZIOROWSKI, on records.
I have sought both ISAACS and JEZIOROWSKI.

Secondly:- BELLA FISCHLER

BELLA left London England as a GI, and went to live in CANADA. Possibly
after WW11. I believe it was TORONTO. BELLA and her Husband had a SON
LARRY, both BELLA and LARRY still live in TORONTO.

BELLA is the Daughter of SOPHIE FISCHLER, of London.. BELLA'S Siblings
were SYDNEY who died after WW11 >from his injuries sustained during the War.
LILY died in 2000. PAMELA lives in Bournemouth, England.

BELLA'S Mother SOPHIE, was the Sister of the above, SAM JEZIOROWSKI/ISAACS

If anyone knows of a BELLA or LARRY that fits this descriptions, I should be
so happy to hear >from you.

Thank you for reading this plea for help

Good Luck to you all in your Research.

Kindest regards

Re: alien registration cards #general

I am confused.

1) Does writing to the INS for the records they have about Alien
Registration Cards provide different or better information that what one
obtains >from the 3 naturalization papers? This is for someone who came to
the USA in 1956

2) Is the Social Security number the one to use in requesting the Alien

Thanks.

Re: origin of name Maimon #general

Jeff Malka <malkajef@...>
 

Maimonides actual Hebrew name was Moshe ben Asher.

At the period when he lived in Spain, arabic was the languagew of the
Intellectuals and educated people. Asher means "fortunate" in Hebrew and
could therefore be translated as Maimon which means fortunate in Arabic.

Thus Moshe ben Asher became Moshe ben Maimon or Ibn Maimon. The suffix
"-ides" is greek for "son of" . Thus "Moshe ben Maimon" becomes Moshe
Maimonides in greek.

I hope this helps. See my webpage
(http://www.orthohelp.com/geneal/yohasin.htm) and others on my website for
an explanation of Sephardic names, naming patters and name structures.

Does anyone know the origin of the name "Maimon"? We all know this was
the name of the father of one of the most celebrated figures in Jewish
history, the RAMBAM of Cordova, but where did it come from? As far as
I know it's not in the Torah. Could it be Greek?

RINKOWSKY (and variant spellings) Family - Lithuania & Elsewhere #general

MikePnina Rothenberg <mikeroth@...>
 

Hi,

I am seeking information on my RINKOWSKY family. The surname has
various spellings in English, including RINKOFSKI and RINKOVSKY. My
grandmother was born in Landverova (now Lentvaris). Her father's name
was Isaac and her mother's name was Rose. The town is located between
Vilnius and Trakai, but I've not been able to locate any records of the
town or the family. Other relatives have identified the town, too. I
don't know where else the family might have lived, before the family
moved to Lentvaris. My grandmother and her six sisters moved to London,
England in the late 1890's. (They also had a brother, the youngest).
After my grandmother married and had some children in England, she, my
grandfather and their family moved to the U.S. around 1908. All her
siblings and their families moved to South Africa.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Mike Rothenberg
