Family Re-union #general

Thank you all for your many many responses about planning a family
reunion. The general opinion of most was to make it kosher and not on
Shabbos. Thanksgiving could be perfect.
Happy Chanuka,

Where is Land's End, England? #general

Howard Zakai
 

Dear British Genners,

After Russia and before New York, my great-grandfather and his siblings
lived in Manchester >from about 1898 to 1906 or so. [One sister lived in
Cardiff, South Wales.] In the U.S., many years later, and still such a
long time ago, one of the brothers mentioned that while in England, he
visited a place called Land's End.

Would anybody know where this is? Of what significance is it?

Regards,

Howie Zakai

Seeking information about Hugo NATHAN - Frankfur a.M. #germany

David Baron <dbaron@...>
 

Dear Gersig,
I received this message. Can anyone help?
Dear Sirs!
from the internet and your homepage I know your efforts to find out
more about jewish families of Frankfurt/Main.

I am a writer and for a book about so called "Looted art" I am doing
some investigations in a certain case of a former jewish family of
Frankfurt. It's about Hugo Nathan and his family. Nathan was a
wealthy entrepreneur and was known for his famous art collection.
After the Nazis came up, he and his family fled and emigrated to
Switzerland, Zürich. That's all I know up to now.

Maybe you have heard of Hugo Nathan or you can give some advice where
I can get some specific information. I would be pleased if you could
give a brief answer to me. Thank you very much. Sincerely yours,

Markus Stötzel Huteweg 4, D-35096 Weimar (Lahn)

Re: Ballin family & Lublin family #scandinavia

Steen Felding <steen.felding@...>
 

Gerson Joel Ballin was the son of the merchant Joel Joseph Ballin
who settled in Horsens ca. 1784 after receiving a royal permission
to do so.

I have been researching the Danish branches of the Ballin-family
and found a lot of material I would like to share with Henry Cohen
and others.

Gerson is not listed in the 1787-census of Horsens but his father
and family are:
http://www.jewishgen.org/scandinavia/1787horsens-us.htm

But Gerson is on the 1801-census of Horsens, and he was no doubt
born there ca. 1800. The census can be found on the Danish Demographic
Database (online searchable databases):

http://ddd.dda.dk/ddd_en.htm

but here is the listing for the familiy in 1801:

Census 1801, Skanderborg County, Horsens Town,
Address: Søndergade Nordre Side, 118, 82.
----------------------------------------------

(Name, Age, Marital status, Position in the household, Occupation)

Joel Ballin, 48, Married, Head of household, Merchant,
Rosine Levin, 37, Married, His wife
Joseph Ballin, 11, Unmarried, Their children
Ester Ballin, 10, Unmarried, Their children
Sara Ballin, 9, Unmarried, Their children
Lovise Ballin, 9, Unmarried, Their children
Githe Ballin, 7, Unmarried, Their children
Julius Ballin, 5, Unmarried, Their children
Simon Ballin, 4, Unmarried, Their children
Friderica Ballin, 2, Unmarried, Their children
Gerson Ballin, 1, Unmarried, Their children

Henry,

If your Marcus is Marcus Magnus Lublin I have a record >from him at
from the Cemetery Records in Nakskov. Marcus Magnus Lublin bricklayer
in Sakskobing, born 19 July 1819 and died in Sakskobing 7 April 1901.

His wife Sara is Sara LUBLIN nee LUBLIN died at age 53 on 8 Mar 1862.

Just above them in the listing is the mother of Marcus--Gitte LUBLIN
nee HEIMANN / HEYMANN. (Gitte is a form of Brigitte so this is
probably where your Hanne got her middle name.) Gitte was married to
Magnus Samuel LUBLIN (dates still unknown).

If you are interested in any more information--I'm researching LUBLIN
family. Take a look at the Cemetery Records online and you will find
a number of entries for LUBLIN family.

Sincerely,

Tracy Zappala, Eugene, Oregon, USA

I don't know if any of you are in Toronto but there was/is a
Danish-Jewish family here called Balin/Ballin. I don't know
the exact spelling because they were friends with my late parents.

I am not in contact with them currently but I do know people who
know them. FYI

Re: Mume for Stepmother #general

In addition to message below I have a theory that the word Mume, which
sounds like Mame, came >from the fact that stepmothers were often the
sisters of women who had died young. Thus, the step-children, who were
also her nieces and nephews, called their stepmother by a name that
sounded like Mame. In the US we have the phenomenon of stepmothers
sometimes being called aunty.

Feter (pronounced fetter) and Mume (pronounced mumeh) are Yiddish. Because
of French influence on Court in Russia, it was common to use the French
words tante and oncle. My parents referred to their older relatives by the
Yiddish words and to their younger relatives by the French words.
