JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Same person? Naftali Herz ASHKENAZI #general

Dovie Gelerinter
 

I have come across the name Naftali Herz ASHKENAZI twice in my tree
and they, theoretically, based on the time, family, and location,
could be the same person, but I can't find any confirmation or common
information about them. But I just have this feeling that they are.
But, feelings don't help when you want accuracy,right? :)

1) I have Yaakov Hirsch (1645-1667), son of Feige daughter of Avroham
Yehoshua BABAD (1596-1693). Yaakov had a daughter Chaya who married
Naftali Herz ASHKENAZI (d.1713). I see a a handful of children and
other descendants of theirs.

2) I have Feige KAHANA-SHAPIRA, wife of Aharon Shmuel KAHANA-SHAPIRA
(1690-1756) mother of Natan Neta KAHANA-SHAPIRA. She was the daughter
of Naftali Herz ASHKENAZI. I don't have any more information
(b/d/spouse) on him on that line.

None of the children I see record for the Naftali in the first one are
a FEeige or anything close.

Does anyone know enough about this family to help me definitively
confirm that these are or aren't the same person?

Thank you,

-Dovie Gelerinter

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Help with family who emigrated from Germany to Montreal #general

Judi Bartek
 

Dear Geners,
I am new at this and could use some help. I am tying to locate any information
about my great grandparents who emigrated >from Germany to Montreal in the
1870s era. They went on to start a skirt hoop factory until a flood ruined
there business and then moved to Boston, MA. Their names were Hermann
(1839-1914) and Hudga Hirshfield (not sure of her date of birth). I know that
Herrmann was born in Germany and died in Manhattan.

Any hints on how I can find out more information would be helpful

Thanks so much

Hungarian Newspapers and Obituaries #general

Dear All,

I was wondering: is there a simple way online to locate Hungarian
newspaper clips and especially obituaries and death notices? As many
of you know, these are a very helpful tool for understanding family
ties. However, I never managed to search for those systematically -
only by chance on Google.

Best regards,
Amit Naor
