Sara and Harriet LEVY 1930 NY Census - ***arienberg? #general

Alexandra Alznauer <petiealznauer@...>
 

On the 1930 Census for New York City, I am having trouble reading the town
of origin for the mother of Sara B. LEVY (daughter of Amelia SILVERBERG and
Rabbi Moses BLUME of Troy, NY).

Amelia, the mother, and her sister (Esther or Ernestine or - less likely,
Anna) was said to have been >from Poland on other records) Moses (Morris,
Moritz and sometimes BLUM instead of BLUME) was >from Posen, Prussia. Amelia
was Moses's second wife; her sister who died young leaving two small
daughters, was the first wife. I am descended >from Augusta Alexander, a
daughter of the first wife.

The census image online says "Germany" - then something illegible and then
what looks like "arienberg". It could be "Marienberg" but the first letter
looks more like an "S" than an "M".

If anyone with more experience reading bad handwriting on census forms could
help I would appreciate it.

Looking for Fauquemont/Lotharingen OR Valkenburg #general

Jonathan Borchard <JonBorchard@...>
 

Some of my family were born in Fauquemont/Lotharingen (Holland/Belgium)
in the 1790's.

Many years ago I was told it is now known as Valkenburg in Germany.

I have done a bit of research into locating it but seem to be finding
several Valkenburg's and am no longer sure which is the one I am looking
for!

Could someone please put me right and also tell me if you know if I
have any chance of finding Jewish births >from that town between
1790 and 1793.

Many thanks

Jonathan Borchard

Chicago Jewish Press - Lusitania 1915 #general

I agree with Jeremy G. Frankel that "The Sentinel" was one of the Jewish
newspapers published in Chicago in 1915. In addition, the "Advocate" (voice of
Reform Jewry) was also published. If you look in my Infofile "Guide to Jewish
Genealogy in Chicagoland" at www.JewishGen.org/Infofiles/Chicago you can find
more info by clicking on "Life in Jewish Chicago" under Types of Records.

Both of these publications are in the library of the Spertus Institute for
Jewish Studies (in Chicago). You can e-mail them at asherlib@spertus.edu .

My step grandmother was lost on the Lusitania May 8 1915 after visiting her
son in Chicago

I am in London UK and checked our Newspaper library - I found reports in the
Chicago dailies but the only Jewish newspaper was in Yiddish which I could
not
read.

Was there a Jewish journal published in Chicago 1915 in English ?

Thanks

FULD from Frankfurt/Germany #general

sunka@...
 

Hello All,

I am searching for descendants of Leopold FULD and his sons Herman,
Adolf or Gustav Fuld. Leopold was the grandfather of Ruth Avital who
lives now in Israel. Her mothers name was Rahel FULD, born 1915 in
Frankfurt/Germany and who died in 1950 and was the sister of Herman,
Adolf and Gustav and had also a sister.Ruth Avital knows nothing about
her family because of the early death of her mother and would love to
get in contact. She only recalls the names of her uncles and that
they might live in the USA today.

If you are a relative or if you have information about this Fuld
family, it is highly appreciated if you would answer my inquiry.

Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

Anja Listmann

The name VAN PRAAG #general

Irene Levita <mimosa@...>
 

My ancestor Jesaias Mozes VAN PRAAG, born 1794, died 1858. his
daughters were Sara Moses VAN PRAAG, born 1828, married Meyer Manes
VAN LEEUWEN, born 1830, both >from Amsterdam.
Judic VAN PRAAG, born December 1819, died March 1887, married Abraham
Levie Peekel, born December 27, 1819.
My question is, would it be logical to presume that the name VAN PRAAG,
is due because the family originally came >from the city of Prague?
If anyone has more information about this family, I would be very
grateful.

Some more professions in Vienna #austria-czech

Florence & Henry Wellisch <kelwel@...>
 

In the Vienna list of births and marriages 1784 -1848 I found some more
Jewish inhabitants with professions, where I can use some help. Here they
are:
Pfeifenbeschlagergeselle (Umlaut a) (I know what a Geselle is)
Schriftsetzer in der Aerarialsbuchdruckerei (I think the word Aerar means
government or state)
Similarwarenerzeuger
Curranthandler (Umlaut at 2nd a)

I do understand the following, but they sound interesting:
Kommerzialguterbeforderer (Umlaut at u and at 2nd o) und Landkutscher
Reisender Huhneraugenarzt (Umlaut at u)
Munzlieferant (Umlaut at u)
Schriftgiesserfaktor
Skontist

Shraga Feivish #rabbinic

Lainey Melnick <lmelnick@...>
 

I've traced one of my lines to Shrage Feivish HOFFING b. 1877. His
son, Eliezer, was born 9/20/1894 in Politsh, Ukraine. I've noticed
the name Shraga Feivish in rabbinical posts and was wondering if
this was a common name or if it's likely there's a relationship to
a rabbi by this name?

Thanks,
Lainey
