Searching for Family Names #poland

Jerry Kalnitz <aaronkal@...>
 

How can I locate the ancestral name of Leizerowski or the name of
Lazarus presumably living in or near the shtetl of Sokolka, Poland.

These names appear in photos I have with dates in the late 1930s or
early 1940s. Any help would be appreciated.

In a death at age 74 in Schirrhoffen (67) in 1821 the occupation is listed
as "commercant et capitaliste" - what would he be as a capitaliste ??

Dear All

Rachael KOSMIN, born 1908, passed away in Sept quarter, Poplar, 1966.
She married Sim KOSMIN in Sept quarter, 1955, Stepney.

Ray was previously married to Marks OGIN. Her maiden name at that time,
1934, Stepney, showed as GOLDWITZ.

I believe that KOSMIN was changed >from KOSMINSKI/Y.

Please contact me at ndogin@... with any connection.

Major source of confusion #romania

sharon yampell
 

I was just looking at the 1930 census where I found some information about my
great grandparents and great great grandmother that confuses me.

I was told, as well as seen it documented, that my great grandparents
( and possibly my great great grandparents* ) were >from Vatra Dornei in Romania.
While looking at the 1930 census, it showed my great grandparents >from Zenta
(Senta), my great great grandmother >from I believe Bach and my great great great
grandparents >from Ried; all in Austria. The family listed under them are shown
to be >from what looks like it should be Iasi in Roumania.

My confusion stems >from (1) where is Zenta in relationship to Vatra Dornei
and (2) why are the neighbors >from Roumania and my family >from Austria?

* Some of my great great grandfather's siblings, based on documentation, came
from Vatra Dornei, Czernovitz and Campulung.

Re: How to determine what town? #latvia

Martha Lev-Zion <martha@...>
 

Shalom, Rebecca! I apologize for this tardy reply to your question about
how to determine >from whence your family hails, when all you know is
that they came >from Latvia. If you cannot get any further answers by
looking them up on the USA census' [they often mentioned the name of the
town, which might be crossed out, but is readable], or >from their
naturalization papers, or >from obituaries, you can always resort to what
I call "ant work". The vital records of Latvia are online. You could go
through the birth records according to the year you know your relative
was born, until you come to the correct person in whatever town that
might be listed.

When all I knew about my great grandfather Abraham Rothchild was that
he was born in Bavaria, I decided to go through all the birth records
for every town found in the Central Archives of the History of the
Jewish People in Jerusalem. [Actual hard copy paper records, nothing
digitized!] It took me four years, but I finally found his birth record
and with it, my entire extended family. Sometimes you have to sit down,
list all the things you do know about the family for which you are
searching, and also list all the places you have checked. Mapping it out
could help you plot out a plan of what you might have missed and where
you should turn next. Sometimes, there is no shortcut to just plodding
along until you reach the information you search.

Good luck!

Rubel in Argentina #latinamerica

Palekaiko
 

A distant cousin (Adolph Rubel) was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina,
27 May 1912. His family (mother Dorothy and siblings Maximillian,
Theodor and Adelheid) arrived >from Hamburg (according the the
passenger list >from ancestry.com) in Buenos Aires, Sep-Oct, 1910. The
Rubels came >from Vienna, Austria. The father, Aron Rubel was not on
that passenger and may have come later, but I couldn't find him on any
passenger list. Sometime after Adolph's birth, the Rubels returned to
Vienna, but I can't find a passenger list indicating when they
traveled. Aron Rubel died in Vienna in 1924.

I would like help locating a record of Adolph Rubel's birth (either in
the city of Buenos Aires or the Province of Buenos Aires)

I would also like help locating a record of the Rubel's return passage
to Europe.

Any and all help/suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you,

ViewMate- Help with a handwritten German note (partly in Sutterlin) #germany

Joachim Salinger
 

Hello to everyone,

I need help for deciphering and translating a short note, written with
a pencil, at the bottom of a letter.

here is the ViewMate Link :
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=3D22850

The mainletter was written >from Deutsch Krone (Pommern) by Helene
HOLZHEIM, born LEVY, on 7th august 1934, to his cousin (my
grandfather) Bernhard SALINGER, who had just emmigrated >from Hamburg
to Dijon (Burgundy, France), and had also his first son, (my dad)
a few days before.

The small note, written with a pencil, is >from Eva, SALINGER, the
sister of my grand-father, and this is the only memory that he kept
from her. Obviously she was unable to run away >from Germany, and
perished in Chelmno KZ in May 1942.

I can only decipher few words (lieber Bernhard lb Helma), but the
handwriting, partly in Sutterlin, is too hard for me !

I don't post the main letter, because I do have allready a pretty good
loose translation, but if you need it too understand the short note,
please ask, and i'll mail it to you privately.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you very much.

Hello!

I have found in the burial registry of JewishGen 4 persons who were buried at
Agudath Achim, Los Angeles:

Weisberg Charles, Weissberg Max, Weissberg Fannie and Weissberg Abraham (Zushe).

I made a request for making photos to the gravestones of these persons on
findagrave.com. A man could find Charles and Max Weisberg but not the other.
Also I saw that for Charles and Max in your database were shown their jewish
names, so I could identify them as brothers. But for Weissberg Abraham (Zushe)
was no jewish name given. How can I contact the person who made this entries
for your database?

Thank you very much in advance
