Re queries on the above.

For info the 1870 Ordnance Survey (The Godfrey Edition sheet 61) shows this
synagogue on the South side of Upper Bryanston St. about halfway between
Edgware Road and Gt Cumberland St (now Place)
It is at least 150yards away >from the West London Synagogue situated on the
North side of Upper Berkely St.

I know my grandmother's nephew Sasha Otelen at one time was a
professor and head of the faculty at this institution. Does
anyone know about this school or know how I can track Sasha's
family >from there? Thanks for your suggestions.
Apparently this is a Ukrainian institution that can be found if you
search the Web.

Hi genners,

Does someone have an idea where could a Jew >from Podolya graduate at the end
of XIX century.
Does someone have ancestors with a degree taken in East Ukraine in those
years?
Thank you

Re: Question re Passenger Lists #general

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

They are one and the same. Theonly advantage to looking them
up at NARA or the NYPL where I do my research is that you can
get the Detained Passenger Manifests at the end of each ship's
pages which you cannot get online on the EIDB. Your family
member could be lsited there and then you may get another
family member or different address to whom they were going.

Every little bit helps.

Are the passenger lists in the National Archives the same as the
manifests at Ellis Island? In other words, if I have passenger
manifests that show date of arrival as well as city of origin,
are the passenger lists at the National Archives going to show
me anything new?


Re: Ship arrivals in the 1880's... where #general

Baltimore was a choice in those days.

Can anyone help me in figuring out where to find these records??
It seems that *most* of my relatives came into the United States
in the 1880's. All the stories of course are that they came into
New York, but for those that settled in PA and TN, what other
common ports of entry were available during that time?


Recent technical difficulty with manifests on Ellis Island website? #general

jeremy berger <jberger123@...>
 

Hi,
Is anybody else having recent technical difficulty with Ellis
Island website EIDB? I am using internet explorer as a browser
and cannot get manifests to enlarge when I click on it. Instead
I keep getting those pop up advertisements for genealogy.com

Please let me know privately,

Stan Goodman <sgoodman@...>
 

I have access to much information about the rabbinical families
NEIMAN and LAWSKI in Israel, as I am in contact with the families in
this country. I would be very interested in supplementing it with
information about their activities before they left Lomza Gubernia
in Russian Poland in the 19th century. If someone could point me at
sources for this, I would be very grateful.

Re: WALTS GALORE #southafrica

mike getz <mgetz@...>
 

Jack Walt was a Newlands neighbour and colleague in the Claremont Shul
Choir for many years, He was a tenor, sharing the role with Ralph Merkel. He
loved the Shul and choir.

His daughter married a Segal and they live in Israel.

I was at school with a Louis Walt, >from Observatory but I lost contact with
him after matriculating. I believe most of the Cape Town Walts were related.

Subject: [safrica] WALTS GALORE


PROBLEM 1:
Many of the descendants of Alexander WALT of Ukmerge
(Wilkomir), lived in South Africa. As did many of the
descendants of Benjamin Leib Walt also >from Wilkomir.
Whilst I know quite a lot about Alexander's
descendants, I know little about those of Benjamin.

One of Benjamin's sons was Abraham Jacob WALT (who had
an uncle known as Jekkel) who owned a hardware store
in Claremont, Cape, South Africa. As a young man
Abraham worked for Chuck JAWITZ who was married to
Celia WALT who is a descendant of Alexander WALT. Als
Abraham had a cousin Morris WALT.

Does anyone have any information which might in some
small way help me to establish whether a relationship
exists between Alexander WALT and Benjamin Leib WALT?

PROBLEM 2: The late Dr Alexander Walt (1923-1996) was
an eminent surgeon at Wayne State University. Does
anyone have any recollections or biograhical details
about this man (a descendant of Alexander WALT, see
above)?

PROBLEM 3: 'Sonny' WALT was a medical practitioner in
South Africa. He was also descended >from Alexander
WALT. What was his real name? Does anyone have any
recollections/bigraphical details about him?

PROBLEM 4: Thee was a firm called Walt&Gorfinkel in
Cape Town, South Africa. Does anyone know who was the
Walt in this name and also can anyone tell me anything
about the activities of this firm?

PROBLEM 5: Another harware store in Claremont: M. GENN
& Co. Was this owned by Meyer GENN who was married to
Lifsha WALT?

Any help on any of the above will be gratefully
received by me, Adam Yamey, London, UK<adamandlopa@yahoo.co.uk>

I stand corrected but I would imagine it was 115 Rissik Street, rather than
Rissus Street.
