New York Death #general

MERYL RIZZOTTI
 

Hello Genners:

My Great aunt (sister of my Grandfather) arrived in the United States in 1910.
She used the surname Munach instead of her real surname Cymes. My Grandfather
had also used this surname when he arrived the year before. Her passenger
manifest said she was Ruchel Munach. According to family stories she died young
and never married. I can't find her on any census between 1910 and 1920 under
either the surname Simon (the surname her brother took) or Munach. I can't find
a death record either although she should have died in New York according to the
stories. I found her brother who took the name Hyman Simon in the 1915 New York
State Census but I can't find her. I read on the postings that there were 2
archives for marriages so does that also apply to deaths?
Any suggestions?

Kinui for Tehillah, Hallel, Hodia?

While perhaps of Church Slavic origin, the root occurs in all three Slavic
branches--East, West, and South. Switching chval- to chlav- is an easy
linguistic change. [..]

Re: looking for Jewish German actor named Karl H. SEFFERS from Berlin #general

Hello Moshe,

the 1938 ship manifest shows additional the sister Anna KILIAN (>from Bassy). More
interesting: The manifest >from 1933 - the Bremen >from Cherbourg to nyc - which has
slight failures- but shows the same person! Here she is a private person - but she
travels to United Artists! And she is married with Lipmann DAVIDSON >from Riga..

Refering to the also jewish actor Karl SEFFERS >from Stuttgart (travelling to his
uncle Joseph DRECHSLER) seems to have changed his name - Carl Hans Georg Steffens
became Charles SOREL (who travelled a lot around).

May it help.

I am looking for information on a Mrs. Bassy r. DAVIDSON nee KADIS. I found her on
a ship manifest the S.S. Oriente sailing >from Havana on July 1938 to New York. On
the ship with her was a Jewish German actor named Karl H. SEFFERS >from Berlin. It
says she is a film representative. I am trying to find more info on her i thought
if I could find more info on him it might lead to her.

I have responded individually to those who were kind enough to answer my query
about what my relationship would be to the siblings of my great-grandparents.
The consensus is that I would be their great-grand niece.

Can this be accessed anywhere besides at the
library itself? Is the scanning the same as that for other ProQuest
databases, wherein one can scan for any word (or name)?
It can be accessed within NYPL's four research centers (Scwharzman Building,
SIBL, Schomburg, and Library for the Performing Arts).

And yes, the scans are full-text (OCR) scans, so you can search by keyword, but
with any OCR scan, you also have to assume it misses some.

I have seen the name Chlavna (in Cyrillic characters) in records for my wife's
Seligman family, who came >from Shchedrin, Belarus. I don't recall if that member of
the family came to the US or by what name he might have been known. In Yiddish I'd
expect to hear Chlav-nee or Chlav-neh so Chlavney would be a good representation.

Sounds like it is an attempt to get to Ha Levi or something similar,
transliterating the Hebrew as Ch Lavney, when I look at it and pronounce it, and
the Harry because his English name.

Sort of my using Schlomo (known as Samuel) if the Yiddish on my Jewish birth
certificate is used, which it isn't.
