Re: Mehun Sur Yevre Correction #germany

Martha Lev-Zion <martha@...>
 

My apologies for indicating that Mehun Sur Yevre was under German
control! Of course it wasn't, being in the centre of France [which I
knew!]! Thank you all for pointing out my error, which was true
stupidity on my part, for which I won't make excuses.

The couple, Leon Joseph BRACH and Lucie BERNET lived in Metz, where
Leon was born, but they were married in Mehun s/Yevre, which is where
Lucie was born.

I found out that the marriage certificate can be ordered >from the Cher
Archives, but not until after the 31st of March because they are
digitizing their "registres d=92=E9tat civil".

Thank you for all your help. I have written to thank each of you
individually.

ST. ALBANS, A Port City? #belarus

Ruth Kornbluth <rfenko@...>
 

Hello,
I finally found my grandmother's manifest after searching for about 5 years.
She was >from Baranaviche in Belarus (Minsk). She arrived via Canada and St.
Albans
on Jan 5, 1903. Her name was mis-transcribed in a way which was what made it
so difficult to find her. She arrived with four stepchildren, her child and
a brother-in-law.
They were headed for NYC to be with her husband, David Poczipoff.
I would like to know what the procedure would have been for persons entering
thru Canada. Was St. Albans a port city? How did the new arrivals get to
NYC? Was it by train >from Canada?
Thanking anyone who might make this clearer to me.

SIROTA family from Butrimonys, Lithuania #general

David Ellis
 

This note documents my search along one branch of my family tree, the SIROTA family
from Butrimonys, Lithuania.
My g-grandmother Eva SIROTA (maiden name) was born in Lithuania in 1852 and
(according to US census records) married Abrahm ELLIS in 1871. They immigrated to
the United States in April 1888, lived first in Manhattan and then in Brooklyn, and
raised five children. She died on Jun 29 1928, five years after her husband.

Their children who survived childhood were: Anna (Chana Frida), 1876 - Jun 2 1962
Bertha (Buna), Apr 16 1884 - Apr 1969
Charles (Betzalel), Sep 15 1886 - Feb 1969
Jackson (Yakir), Nov 3 1890 - Nov 1918
Robert (Ruven Lazar), Nov 3 1890 - Feb 1987
Three other children died in infancy, but we don't know their names.

Her death certificate lists her parents' names as Jacob Sirota and Rachael Sirota.
According to her tombstone, her Hebrew name was Chava bat Yakir, so her son Jackson
was clearly named after her father.

I believe I found a matching Revision History (family census) record in the All
Lithuania Database on jewishgen.org, >from the town of Butrimonys in 1858. One
household shows:
Yaker SIROTA, b. 1806, father: Abram (my g-g-grandfather)
Sorka, b. 1810, Yaker's wife (my g-g-grandmother?)
Rivka, b. 1841, daughter; Libka, b. 1846, daughter; Movsha, b. 1849, son;
Chava, b. 1852, daughter (my g-grandmother); Chana, b. 1854, daughter;
Itsko SIROTA, b. 1810, father: Abram; Geska, b. 1840(!), Itsko's second wife;
David, b. 1834, son; Iokhved, b. 1838, David's wife, father: Nosel Wulf, b. 1837;
son, conscripted Berko SIROTA, b. 1803, head of household, left 1854, father:
Nosel; Nosel, b. 1827, son, left 1854

Yakir is an unusual given name, and Chava's date of birth matches exactly. There
is one discrepancy: Yaker's wife is listed here as named Sorka, which doesn't
match up with the name Rachael >from Eva's death record.

My g-g-grandfather Yaker also appeared in the 1834 Revision History record:
Iaker SIROTA, b. 1806, father: Abram
Elka, b. 1808, wife (my g-g-grandmother?)
Itsko SIROTA, b, 1810, father: Abram
Fradka, b. 1809, Itsko's (first) wife
Berko SIROTA, b. 1803, head of household
Sorka, b. 1804, Berko's wife

This was before any of the children were born, and Yakir had a different wife(?) It
looks like the two Sorkas were different people, given their different birth years.

So what can I say about my g-g-grandmother? Was her name Rachael, Sorka or Elka?
It looks like my g-grandmother was one of five children, and I tried to find some
record of her siblings, but I was unable to find any immigration records for them,
nor did I find any trace of them in the Yad Vashem death archives.

Nobody among the dozens of relatives I've contacted, all of whom are descended from
my g-grandmother, knows anything about her brother Movsha or her sisters Rivka,
Libka, and Chana. I didn't even ask about Itsko's family.

The Revision History records show at least six other SIROTA families in Butrimonys,
but I have no clue how they might be related. I don't see many SIROTAs in
Lithuania other than in Butrimonys.

At least three other people are researching SIROTA relatives in Butrimonys. I have
exchanged e-mail messages with them, and they are all descended >from Leiser SIROTA,
son of Shevel. These names do not appear in the Revision History lists, so again
I can't seem to find a connection.

As a matter of general interest, the surname SIROTA appears to be derived >from a
Russian word meaning "orphan". This is as far as I've been able to get in my
research. Suggestions for how I can best proceed will be most welcome. Thanks
in advance to anybody who can offer help.
