Berdowsky on Wollanee Road, Whitechapel 1904 #unitedkingdom

leorca27 <leorca27@...>
 

In developing my search regarding my paternal grandfather, Chayem Berdowsky,
and tracing his route >from Lida to Philadelphia, I discovered that he lived
for an unspecified time with a relative (Israel Berdowsky) in Whitechapel,
on Wollanee Road, in 1904. What have you found to be the best resources for
understanding the texture of life in the East End at that time and records
that might capture the time he arrived in England and >from where? What
guidance can you provide regarding finding out what ever happened to Israel
Berdowsky? Are there any old maps that would indicate where Wollanee Road
was and what it has become today? Thanks.

Hello Genners

Looking for Jewish roots from England via Philadelphia or New York #unitedkingdom

Richard Gilbert <gilbert67@...>
 

Hello!

My name is Richard Gilbert. I was born in NJ in 1967 to Paul Alfred
Gilbert, who was born in NJ in 1927 to Joseph Gilbert, who was born in May
1888.

Family folklore has it that Joseph was born to a Jewish family in
Philadelphia that had emigrated >from England (possibly London, possibly
elsewhere). Joseph might have been born in New York.

Supposedly he renounced his Judaism in the 1920s when he joined a Masonic
group.

My father was raised a Lutheran, possibly due to his mother's heritage.

Is there anything you can do to help me research this side of my family?

Thank you very much!

Sincerely,
Richard Gilbert

Re: Given name Leni #austria-czech

Prof. G. L. Esterson <jerry@...>
 

David Laufer posted as follows:

Can anyone tell me about the given name Leni ? Is it a name in its own
right, or the diminutive form of another name such as Helene ?
The name Leni is a stand-alone given name much used by non-Jewish Germans,
and adopted beginning about 1800 by German Jews. It was also used by them
as a diminutive for the German secular name Helene.

Sometime after this secular name Leni began to be used actively by Jews in
Germany, it was also adopted by Jews living in other European countries,
including Czechoslovakia.

Its use by Jews in Germany is shown in the JewishGen Given Names Data Base
for Germany at the web site:

< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/GivenNames/ >

by searching for the name Leni using Plain Text Search. Its use in
Czechoslovakia and other countries will be seen in the GNDBs for those
countries on the JewishGen web site, after an upcoming update.

I have got today the birth registrations of my grandfather's father and
mother, born 1886 and 1890, Botosani Romania.

I have sent a request by mail to the Archives in Botosani by 1 Nov. 2005
, got a response >from them after a month that they have found the
documents and transferred them to Bucharest for approval. Nagged through
an e-mail to Bucharest (don't know if I had to do it). Yesterday I have
received mail through the embassy to come, pay and collect the papers.
Taking into account that the process used snail mail - it was quite
fast.
The biggest con - they charged 150 NIS (almost 40 dollars) per document.

I need to point that I have requested documents for which I had exact
dates - I do not know what will be their response to a request that
requires them to do a more extensive search (have sent a letter with a
second batch of documents - waiting for the response). Also, it might be
that the response depends on the local manager.=20

By the way - As I have understood, the way to get identity related
documents >from Romania is making a request at the local
embassy/consulate.

"Tiraspol" #ukraine

wendy cantor <cassatt222@...>
 

Hello All,

I have tried to locate "Tiraspol" on a map without success. My grandmother,
born Beile TOPELBERG, came >from what she called Tiraspol, near Odessa.
Several years ago, if memory servies me, I had located some information on
Tiraspol on the jewishgen site. Now I can't seem to find it, nor can I find
Tiraspol on a map. Am I in the wrong pew, so to speak? There is a
Terespol, near Moldova listed on the JRI Poland site, but it doesn't appear
to be near Odessa.

Just in case it rings a bell to anyone here's a bit more info: My gg
parents were Aron Moshe and Yenta/Yetta/Etta GOLDFARB TOPELBERG >from
Tiraspol. They had 7 children born between about 1894-1911: Belle, Ida,
Frieda, Harry, Charlie, Rose, Sonia/Sonnie. They arrived in the US between
1912-1914 and lived on Christopher St. in Brooklyn. Belle, Sonni, Rose and
Charlie eventually settled in Pittsburgh. Yetta had a brother who lived in
Brooklyn, "Pesech" GOLDFARB.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
