MORRIS Family #general

Ann Linder
 

Is anyone researching MORRIS family?
I'm returning to my search of UK descendants of Katie and David J.
MORRIS.
David born in Vilna aprox 1875; Katie Morris nee Freedman born in
Stopnice, Poland 1881, and died in UK 1966.
David Morris was a surveyor with a business on Regent Street. I have
no record of death for him.
Thanks to the generous help for which I am truly appreciative &
grateful - of Naomi O, Barbara K, and Judy E, I gathered much family
info.

David & Katie MORRIS had 4 sons:
1 Ronald Stanley, profession unknown;spent time in California in
1930s. I find no record of a marriage or death.
2 Israel Louis, a surveyor; I find no record of marriage or death.
3 Emmanuel (aka Clive), an architect; married Gladys Florence, and
divorced 1933. I find no record of children, nor a death record.
4 Maxwell Morris, a barrister; Maxwell Morris married Frederica
Abelson in 1930 and they may have had 3-5 children: Georgina M.DOB
1931; David M. DOB 1933 Patricia E 1933; Geoffrey M. DOB 1942; Richard
F M DOB 1944. I have my doubts that Patrica and Richard are their
children.

I have many ship manifests for this family and so I have documented
their travels. I also have a couple of Jewish Chronicle posts.
My brick wall: Finding descendants so that I can make contact.
Until a year ago, I did not know that this family of mine even existed.
Quite exasperatingly, MORRIS is not an uncommon name--e.g., there are
about 200 Geoffrey Morris in the directories; and about 150 Georgina
Morris

Viewmate - German translation #general

Stuart Ungar <teamungar@...>
 

Hi,

I could use help with 2 translations on viewmate: 15834 and 15833. This may be
the birth record of my Grandmother who was born in Skole (now in Ukraine).

I am also wondering why there seems to be two birth records for her with two
different birth years. One says 8 December 1889 and the other says she was
borhn 18th of June in 1892. Our family records (what she told us) was that her
birth date was 2 December 1900. Any thoughts on this? I would assume some
girls fibbed about their b'days back then since it was custom for a man to marry
a younger woman. But, that doesn't explain the two different birth records.

Thoughts appreciated!

Re: names, nicknames, multiple language names, etc. #belarus

Les Evenchick asked if "any compilation exists for variations on first
names".

I would suggest consulting Prof. Jerry Esterson's extensively documented
JewishGiven Names Database under Databases in JewishGen:

Does any compilation exist for variations on first names.?

For examples, I have ancestors and relatives named Abraham who were also
called Abram, Avrom, Avcei.

The Museum's Fiftieth Film from Tomek Wisniewski #poland

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Tomek has sent me a thirteenth film about Bialystok (thirty-one minutes
long), entitled "Bialystok: Yesterday and Today: >from the Heavens and the
Earth." It is mostly composed of slow scans of pre-war photos of Bialystok,
of buildings, or storefronts, of display ads, and mixed in are a few short
video snippets of today's Bialystok.

There are a lot of Jewish names that can be found above the storefronts,
within the display advertisements, etc. Just a few of the names found within
the advertisments are Bialymsoku, Gordon, Gutmans, Saryiera, Rommsaholler,
Dojlidzki, Fliker, Najdus, Makowski, Mowszowski. Two store signs say
Dortinsky and Sachar Rosen, though there are many more such signs, including
many written in Cyrillic, so be forewarned as you might have to do some name
translations >from Russian if you wish to learn the names on these signs. If
anyone wishes to go through the entire film and come up with a master list
of names found within this film, I will be willing to post this list on this
film's webpage.

Family Finder - The Big Picture? #dna

Bob Kosovsky wrote re Family Finder: Can anyone explain these seemingly
off-the-wall results?

I am sure that each of the relations identified in the Family Finder has an
interesting story to tell - problem is that it is exceptionally difficult to
know what that story means. As I have mentioned previously, I am convinced
that what the FF is throwing up are relations that go way back - centuries
at least in many/most cases and that we are far away >from actually
understanding what these results can personally mean for our genealogy.

For instance, through the Family Finder I was contacted recently by a newly
identified distant relation. He is mostly American founder family with a bit
of Scottish and a dollop of very Lithuanian Lithuanian - if you get my
drift. Not one identifiable ounce (as far as I can tell) of Jewish anything.
Now me - like I guess most of us - is Jewish >from every direction. In my
family history at some point there will have been a marriage/relationship
into a local population - light skinned and gray eyes comes >from somewhere -
but not in the past known history and definitely never in Lithuania. So my
guess is that whenever our common ancestor existed he/she probably dressed
in animal skins and roamed the great Polish plain in search of Aurok.

I have a quite a few other FF identified relations - >from suggested 2nd
cousins and beyond but not one of them is actually traceable to either a
family link or even a geographic district link (not good enough in my book
that because someone's ancestors come >from the Ukraine or Poland I have to
assume they are mishpucha - needs to be a bit more precise than that).

Obviously there is a load more work to be done on the FF to even color in
the big picture and the fine detail seems a long way off.
