You can lay plaques for your family #general

Kay Sharpe <chockieks@...>
 

A young German told me you could lay plaques for those lost to the Nazis in
the Holocaust. In May this year I did this for my family in Vienna and it was
hugely rewarding to give them back some dignity, pay my respects in a way I
felt adequate. Web sites that may be of interest

www.steinedererinnerung.net

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_cities_by_country_that_have_stolpersteine

or ask google for "Stolpersteine list" and you will see this is
happening all over the occupied territory

Please contact me if you need any help to do this, I would be pleased to help

Re: David GOLDSMITH, Indura, Grodno, Russia (now Belarus) #general

A. E. Jordan
 

From: Norman & Jean Fuhrer nfuhrer@bellsouth.net

What is the Hebrew equivalent of Solomon?
There are no Hebrew equivalents ..... names were translated into English
sometimes following certain patterns but no always. Sometimes they worked
from the sound or the first letter and other times they simply took a name
they liked.

That said, I am curious about something I was told long ago and maybe
someone here with a better knowledge of the common Hebrew names can help.
Both my father and my brother have English names that begin with the letter
S but not the same name. There's a family story that when they went to give
my brother his Hebrew name it could not be the same as his father's but there
are only two Hebrew names that begin with "S."

Is that true? I am pretty sure I can think of more than two they could use
but name I am wrong on the Hebrew names.

A hotel/restaurant in Ekaterinoslav called "America"? #ukraine

Liz Hanellin
 

Dear all,

My family name is HANELLIN, which in Russian would be GANELIN (with its myriad spelling variations). I have posted to this list before, but not about this specific question.

My HANELLIN grandfather and most of his eight brothers were born in Ekaterinoslav (now known as Dnipropetrovsk) between about 1890 (plus or minus) and the early 1900s. They emigrated with their parents to the U.S. in 1904, when my grandfather was still an infant.

I recently learned that the HANELLINs owned a hotel/restaurant in Ekaterinoslav called "America" (I put the name in quotes, because it seems unlikely that the name would have been spelled in English.).

I am wondering whether any of you know of a resource that might list hotels/restaurants owned by Jews in that area at the turn of the 20th century? Or any other resources that might help me learn more about this hotel/restaurant? (Apparently my family also had a restaurant on the Lower East Side of New York after they moved here (although they lived in Brooklyn), but I don't know the name of that restaurant.)

Thanks for any helpful hints you may be able to provide.

Best,
Liz Hanellin

Zagradovka???? #ukraine

Merrie Blocker
 

Does anyone know anything about Zagradovka or Zagradowka in Russian ( Zahradivka in Ukranian) a town in the Kherson district of Kherson province? It is not included in Jewishgen


I am translating the memoirs of a Jewish immigrant to Brazil to a Baron Hirsch colony. These colonies were opened in the period 1904-1915.

I am looking for information on the town the immigrant he lived in Ukraine. His surname is Iolovitch but not found in JewishGen

And the town is not listed anywhere in JewishGen that I can discover.

It had about 1000 people in 1900 and was also the site of a Mennonite colony.


Many thanks for any leads, Merrie Blocker ( my family comes >from Obodovka which is on JewishGen.)

naming question #ukraine

Nancy Silverrod <nsilverrodg@...>
 

I am researching the family of my 4x great-grandparents Hannah and Aaron
Mednikopff of Kiev. We know that Aaron had at least one brother, and
have been able to track a number of descendants through one of his
daughters, but we don't know the brother's name. Last night as I was
re-reading some information about one of Aaron's daughters, I realized
that it described her as the daughter of "Aaron, the HaCohen Priest." My
question is, in researching family in Kiev, do I also need to be
considering Cohen as a surname, both for Aaron, and his brother?

Re: 1896 NYC death certificate question #general

A. E. Jordan
 

From: Mark London mrl@psfc.mit.edu:
I received the following scan of a NYC death certificate, >from 1896,
for Esther CHODECK (CHADECK?),

I was surprised that there is no informant's name on the certificate. But
I've never obtained a certificate >from the 1890s. Would there be a name on
the back of the certificate? ...

There is a street address, but unfortunately, I don't know where David
KORTICK's family was living in NYC in 1896. ...

I can't find any CHADECK or CHADECK family living in NYC, in 1900 or
earlier. (A few possible matches arrive later.) Any ideas anyone? Thanks.
Mark London asked a series of questions related to New York records:

First the death certificate form you have is all that survives on the
records. New York city used different forms at different times and
some times you see the informant names and other forms did not include
it. Unfortunately that creates a real problem in cases such as this
where you are trying to link a person to a family.

The first best step I think would be to look at the City Directory and
see if you can see who was living at the address and also look for the
family name using the variety of spellings that you know.

The certificate says she is only in the USA 3 years so you might try
the passenger lists >from Ellis Island but that could be a fruitless
search. The closest Census is the Police Census >from the fall of 1890
to cover lower Manhattan but the problem with that is it is not
indexed, only a small part is online and if the 3 years is correct she
was not in the USA at the time. There's no 1895 Census for Manhattan.

Since it is a woman it is very unlikely there is a will or estate
papers. If it was a man I might suggest trying that although for a
recent immigrant it is still a long shot.

The only other thing is you know the family you are trying to attach
her to. Do have the husband's second marriage? If it was soon after
what address is he living at? Where there children born in the USA?
Look for their birth certificates and especially the one born closest
to the woman's death in hopes it is the same address. Problem is
immigrants moved around a lot on the Lower East Side so getting an
address match is challenging unless the dates of the two events closely
match.

Also the death certificate says she was buried at Washington Cemetery.
Washington is very large but they have reasonable records. You might
go there or see if someone >from the list can go for you and have them
find her grave. Look in the same plot also to see if there any any
other graves that seem to be >from the same family. Any matches of the
family names might give you some more clues to trace this one and her
line and see if it links up with your tree.

Good luck with your search.
