Re: Details, Please! JGFF, Please! [was: Searching WESTREICH family] #general

Bubby <yeruchem18@...>
 

To be more specific, I am looking for relatives of Minnie WESTREICH.

I found a 1900 census listing for a WESTREICH family in Manhattan listing
the parents as Samuel and Pearl, children as Dora, William, Minnie, Michael
and Dora. There may have been two brothers born later named Louis and
Milton. The parents and oldest 4 children are listed in the census as having
come >from "Austria." Specific town is unknown. Samuel and Pearl are not
found in later censuses.

In the 1930 census is listed a William married to Ida COHEN. Michael is not
married as of 1930 and lives with Louis and Milton, both listed as brothers.

Minnie Westreich married Henry SCHALL in 1912. The Schall family came >from
"Austria" as well, again the town is unknown. Henry was the son of Jacob
and Dora.

Fraida Cohen

(P.S. to Roger: I thought the Schall surname was already on my JGFF list and
now I see that it was not there. Thanks for bringing this to my attention;
I added it.)

Finder. Far fewer Jewish genealogists read this discussion group than the

I just received a yichus brief including what appear to be many
references to famous rabbis. I would appreciate very much if
someone could help me in translating it into English. I have
placed a copy in viewmate:

Re: Podkamien #poland

Ron Herrmann <ron_herrmann@...>
 

from my experience, those "stone" names in Polish
(i.e. last-names that end with "Kamien") are probably
a translation of the German "Stein" last-names into
Polish (e.g. GoldStein, FeuerStein, etc).

If you are researching your family tree, also search
for the last-name "unterstein".

In my case, my Grandmother's last name was
ROGOWYKAMIEN which means "Corner Stone" in Polish. It
was a translation of the German ECKSTEIN last name.

Dear Siggers,
A HELLER relative found a small teapot while preparing

Seeking SCHWADRON family #ukraine

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Dear Friends,

I am seeking help with family SCHWADRON.

from a 1921 Ellis Island entrance to New York – Simon and Marif SCHWADRON
(who became known as Samuel and Mary) were born in Podkamen (was Galicia,
then Poland, now Ukraine) and last place of residence was Cwitowa.

Simon was born in 1892 and Mary 1893 - I have knowledge of their
descendants.

The family wish to know if they are in fact descended >from the famous Rabbi
Shalom Mordechai HaCohen SCHWADRON – born in 1835 in a village in the
Zelochov district in Eastern Galicia.

We do know that Simon’s parents were Joshua and Beatrice, apparently they
too came to the United States, although I cannot find their entry details, I
presume their original names would have been Aviezer and Beila? – please
feel free to correct me….. they must have been born in abt. the 1860’s-70’s.

Does anyone have a SCHWADRON family tree that bears the above names?

Additionally we would like to find out if Simon had other siblings, we only
know of one, a sister called Regina born in 1901.- she also entered Ellis
Island in 1921.

Any information on the SCHWADRON family would be gratefully appreciated.

Thank you

Patricia Wilson (Israel)
