One common reason is that they arrived in London after their ship to
New York had sailed. Delays in travel can result in stays like you
describe until funds can be arranged because a new ticket must be purchased.
There is no credit for the ticket on the forfeited passage.

He was married to Esther Emma GOTTSTEIN nee MEMELSDORF (b Samter (Szamotuly,PL)
08 Jan 1852).
They had a daughter,Helene Karoline GOTTSTEIN,b Mainz, 13 Jul 1882.
The family resided in Mainz >from (at least) the late 1880s until (at least)
around WWI.
(Helene, a pianist, got married to (non-Jewish) Max Emil Doerner (d Berlin,
in 1925). Their only daughter Helga was born in Berlin, 1908 and died
there in 1928). Helene was eventually deported >from Berlin to Auschwitz

Britain was a staging-post for east European emigrants who often stayed in
the country for anything >from a few days to months or years before
proceeding to their desired destination. The historian Lloyd Gartner
suggested that as many as half a million Jews spent 2 or more years in
the British Isles before moving on. He mentions that 'A substantial
congregation in Toronto is named Hebrew Men of England'. It is said that
the founders had spent some time in England and thus considered themselves
'men of England'.

Re: EPSTEIN #rabbinic

The Jewish Encyclopedia (1906 edition) had an article on EPSTEIN,
including a graphic family tree going back to Nathan ha-levi EPPSTEIN
in the mid-fifteenth century, ce.

<http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/5825-epstein/>

It's a bit hard to read (at least in the online scanned version - I
wonder if anyone has access to it in print and could scan it at a
higher resolution?), and I'm not sure how well-researched it is, so
there may be better, newer, sources.

Help finding ship manifest and birth/marriage records #latvia

Scott Ehrlich <scott@...>
 

My mother's father's father was Israel Cohen, who was married to Rose
(House/Haus) Cohen. They had a son, David Cohen. All three were
born in Russia.

According to the 1920 US Census for Boston, the census taker noted
Riga as the location in Russia where all three were born.

It also notes Israel is 44 years old, Rose is 39, and son David is 20.

The 1910 Boston census is the earliest census that shows their
arrival, and notes Israel as a Tailor. My mom confirms Israel was a
tailor in Malden, Massachusetts.

No search I have tried on ancestry has resulted in any ship manifest
reflecting these facts.

A separate discovery of Latvia, Riga searching offered by ancestry.com
for marriages shows no matches for Israel or Rose (aka Ruchel by my
mom).

It also appears that ancestry.com uses the jri-poland database, which
I've used extensively with no good matches, either.

I have returned to trying the Latvia search which keeps timing out on
me as I type this.

According to the 1920 census, Israel and Rose were born around 1875 -
1880 or so, and son David born about 1899 - 1901. My grandfather,
Samuel House Cohen, who is David's next younger brother, was born in
Boston, MA in 1903.

Israel's US citizenship form reports he, Rose, and David arrived in
the US via Bremen, Germany on November 1900 on the Patricia. No
good hits on Ellisisland.org nor ancestry.com Familysearch.org has
been of limited help.

Where else can I search next for ship manifests and recorded history
of when/where David was born and Israel and Rose married? At least as
a start.

I am also working my family history with select genealogy groups on Facebook.

Thank you all.

Nasz Przeglad Project Updates #warsaw #poland

hadassahlipsius
 

In lieu of the availability of 20th century Warszawa vital records, the
Warszawa Research Group is currently indexing the death notices and
memorial service notices >from the Polish-language Jewish periodical Nasz Przeglad
("Our Review"). Nasz Przeglad was a Polish-language Zionist newspaper, published daily
in Warszawa >from March 1923 until August 1939.

The vast majority of the death notices are for Warszawa residents.
However, there were also notices for people in other cities in Poland, as well as
in other countries. It is believed that the out-of-country notices were
usually for people whose original residence was Warszawa, or who had
family living in Warszawa at the time that the notice was published.
Out-of-country notices were published for people living in places such as
the United States, Palestine, Sweden and Canada.

The Database was recently updated and the database now covers the
following years 1923-1927, 1929-1931, 1937-1938.


Best of luck in your search.

help with letterhead #warsaw #poland

Hi,

My uncle Isaak Rapoport has the qualification of הרב ד'ר ( Rabbi Dr. )
before his name on his letterhead.
My uncle was >from Warsaw, and the letter was sent in 1939.

Would anybody know where he could have received this qualification?

Many thanks,
