Re: Rudolph FREUND and Rosa BRAUN #general

The name WERNIZIANER does not appear in any records in the JewishGen
Hungary database, which leads me to suspect that the name was originally
VENETIANER. Hungarian version of Michael would be Mihaly. The database
includes lots of records for BRAUNBERG and VENETIANER. I didn't find
any records that listed both names and didn't find any records for
VENETIANER Mihaly but you might look for these names in other sources. I
also suggest looking for Rosa's birthplace in passenger manifests or
naturalization records.

I am looking for information on Rudolph FREUND and Rosa BRAUN.
Rudolph and Rosa were married on 1 September 1897 in Manhattan.

Rudolph was born approximately 1865 in Bohemia to Abraham FREUND and
Theresa POLLAK. His brother Alois was born in Krchleby; I do not
know if Rudolph was born there too. Rudolph immigrated to the US In
1881.

Rosa was born in Hungary in 1862 to Michael WERNIZIANER and Rosa
BRAUNBERG. FamilySearch website lists the marriage and indicates
that she was a widow, thus accounting for a family name that is
different >from that of her parents.

Surname INGBERG #general

Elizabeth Jackson
 

In researching the surname INGBERG, I often come across the name GINCBERG.
While I know the many interpretations of a name may vary by language, I
wonder if there is a way to know if these two names are actually related?

spurious DNA match #dna

Arnold Chamove <arnoldchamove@...>
 

I recently found a very close autosomal DNA match with me on FamilyTreeDNA.
This person is a closer match to me than I am to my sister, and he is a
closer match to my sister than she is to me. We were born early 1940 in
San Francisco, California and he was born in Maine 45 years later. His
ancestry says 3% Jewish, 50% British, and 33% French/German; while my
sister and mine are reported as 95% Jewish (which is reasonable). My sister
and I share 2516 centimorgans (cM) while this man shares about 3384 cM and
similar with both me and my sister.
I assume such a close relationship can only if he and I share the
same parents--both parents. But we do not. Both my parents were dead when
he was born. This man is clear who his mother is. My sister and I look a
lot like our parents and not a lot like this man.
Is there explanation other than that the three of us share the same
parents?

Thanks

Help in reading passenger manifest page #ukraine

Marilyn Levinson
 

My ancestor J. Rudman immigrated to the United States on the S.S.
Manchuria sailing >from Danzig on the 8th February 1921. I found his
passenger manifest on the Boston Passenger and Crew list on ancestry.com
I cannot read the name of the relative he left behind, I believe the first
name is Dina and I cannot read the city in which she was living.
Mr. Rudman appears on line 6 of the manifest. I thank you for your help.

Dear Genners,
I have recently had the pleasure of meeting Eli Tauber, journalist and

Righteous Among the Nations." I am writing to my SIG because there is
no SIG for Bosnia. If anyone is interested in further information about
Mr. Tauber, or can suggest a more appropriate SIG, please contact me

Hello everyone!

I recently got a postcard >from an uncle with Yiddish inscription. It
was sent to my gg grandfather Burah DAVIDESCU (also known as
Burah FERARIU) who died in 1936 in Falticeni, Romania.

Family members say that he was born circa 1856 around Lviv to
David Ber and Miriam KLEINROCK.

ViewMate Posting nr. 48049
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM48049

On the other side there is a picture of a husband and his wife in
their 30's, and their approximately 4 years old daughter.

I will extremely appreciate full (word-for-word) translation of the
text. Any other tips and information are most welcome!

Thank you very much in advance!
