Re: Whereabouts of Bull Court? #unitedkingdom

Bull Court in my 1873 map was off Middlesex Street. Going south the last
little courtyard before Wentworth Street with a "Pub" on the corner.

Subject: [jcr-uk] Whereabouts of Bull Court?

I have located my 3 x great-grandfather Isaac Isaacs on the 1851 census
living at 3 Bull Court, in the Parish of Christ Church, Borough of Tower
Hamlets, does anyone have any idea of the location of Bull Court - I
know there was one in Sandys Row but is that the same one?

Zelik & Goldie PICKMAN Pogost/Pinsk #belarus

Lavernemarkart@...
 

My husband's grandmother was Anna PIKMAN/PICKMAH who was one of 10 children
born to ZelikMy husband's grandmother was Anna Pikman/Pickman who was one of 10
children born to Zelik PIKMAN and his wife Goldie. Anna was >from a small
town which no longer exists - it was Pohost/Pogost and was near Pinsk. Zelik
was a teacher and among his students were the SHMIDMANS (who were related to
Anna somehow).

Anna was born in 1895 and came to New York in 1911 to live with her aunt and
uncle (the "KARTELLS"). She had a brother & sister who had already moved to
New York, but I don't know their given names. The sister married a man named
WEISS and they had a son Lou in 1918. The sister then died during the flu
epidemic in 1919 and the baby went to live with Anna who was by then married and
living in Brooklyn (1920 census).

We're told that Anna had two brothers who disappeared during World War I.

Has anyone heard of a teacher named Zelik PIKMAN? Or related to this family?
And who are the SHMIDMANS? My husband's uncle mentioned them, but don't
know anything about them.

I have checked the website - JGFF and the Belarus database but the only thing
I have found is Zelik PIKMAN on the 1906 voting list in Pinsk - I believe it
was the same Zelik, but no way to know for sure at this point.

1794 Hungarian Tax List #hungary

Eric M. Bloch
 

During transcription of a 1794 tax list for Nograd megye, we have found
a number of people listed without surnames (not too surprising).
However, >from the same towns, we find many given names with an "N."
afterwards. Since it's always an N and no other letter, we're assuming
this has some particular meaning. It seems unlikely that it simply
means no surname since other single names are not followed by "N."
Perhaps it has something to do with the registration of surnames. Does
anyone know the significance of the N? Thanks.

I just joined your group today and am relatively new to geneology research.
I live in Hattiesburg, Mississippi USA and only speak English. I am relatively
good at computer use and do some work through a commercial website.

I am searching for early information on my 3rd great-grandfather, Edward JOSEPH,
b. 1818 in Fordon, Prussia (Bydgoszcz, Poland). He is buried in Beth Israel
Cemetery in Woodville, Mississippi. I think he came to this country in 1844 and
applied for citizenship in Natchez, MS that same year.

Edward had four wives, one of them was Julia HART, b. Kingston, Jamaica in 1830,
and also buried in Beth Israel.

I have easy access to this cemetery and would be happy to gather tombstone
information for others.
