STEINBERG #lithuania

Hamilton, Lawrence R. <LHamilton@...>
 

It is quite likely that Samuel STEINBERG's hometown was LUDWINOWO
(modern Liudvinavas), a town located 5.8 miles due south of MARIJAMPOLE
and 7.4 miles south of KALVARIYA. I have seen many references to
LUDWINOWO residents in the MARIJAMPOLE vital records but wonder whether
there might also be some in the KALVARIYA records (which unfortunately
are not extant).

Samuel STEINBERG left Hamburg on 11 February 1
874, passenger # 62, a kaufman [merchant], >from "Litvinowo." He arrived
in the US, and settled in Indiana.

I am most eager to find out more about his life in the home country, but
find no entries in the JGFF or any in the ALD which seem useful. I
have obtained all the STEINBERG certificates >from Marijampole, where his
daughter later married, but nothing seems to link in yet.

Any suggestions?

Kind regards

I would have thought that the visa to enter Argentina would have been issued
by the Argentina Embassy.

Seeking LEVI in Baltimore from Kassel, Germany #usa

Joan Norris <bnorris@...>
 

I am searching for the parents of my gggrandmother who came from
Kassel, Germany to Baltimore in the mid 19th century.

My gggrandmother was Betti LEVI. I found a partial 1850 census on the internet
which included a family grouping with this name for a 39 year old female and
an adult male of the same age, Joseph, and a 6 year old female, Letta
(followed by a question mark). The age of the child is 4 years off, as
my gggrandmother was born in 1837 or 1840 so would have been 10 to 13
in 1850.

Is Betti LEVI a common name, or could I actually have found
the family? How much wiggle room can one assume on ages in the census?

Is it possible the 10-13 year old was not home and the census taker
didn't ask if there were other children? Where can I get a complete
census for 1850, 1860 and 1870? Also, what would be the best way to
acquire or see passenger lists for the Port of Baltimore?

INTRO - Seeking Hyman LAZARUS - GE > USA before 1850 #germany

rwelch@...
 

I'm new to the group and I'm writing to say "hello". First, a little about
myself: I am originally >from Michigan, but I've lived in the western USA
since 1980. My degree is in historical geography and I am now director of a
museum system in New Mexico. My primary language is English, but I also know
Russian and some German. I've been doing research on my family history for
more than thirty years and my German-Jewish ancestry has eluded me.

Hyman (or possibly Chaim) LAZARUS was born during the first half of the
1770s in Germany according to the 1850 census. His date of immigration to
the United States is unknown, but he was a foot peddler after his arrival in
North America and by 1818 he had settled in the new village of Malta, Ohio
where he lived until his death in 1851. I have a considerable amount of
information about his life and family in Ohio, but I know absolutely nothing
about his life prior to his arrival in Malta, his parents, ancestry, arrival
date in the USA, or his birthplace in Germany. Can anyone help me?

INTRO- Seeking SANDLER in Lugano or Mexico City #germany

Joseph Lonstein
 

Moderator note: This message contains nothing specific to GERMAN Jewish research
but the question posed regarding the Jewish Community in Mexico City is a good
one. There is a significant Jewish Community in Mexico City but GerSig has only
one member in Mexico. I have never heard of any Jewish Genealogy Society in
Mexico. GerSig members with knowledge of sources for German Jewish research
in Mexico and Mexico City are urged to send comments to the Forum.

Hi,
I'm looking for the family of my grandmother's cousin. My grandmother's
father, Joe GOLDBERG (born Krakes, Lithuania 1882; died NYC in 1970) had a
sister (name unknown) who was married in Lithuania to a man named SANDLER.
During or after the Holocaust, this sister and one of her sons named Abraham
SANDLER went to Lugano, Switzerland. This son Abraham SANDLER was a
physician, apparently never married or had children, and died in Lugano in
his 70s during the mid-1960s. His mother died possibly in the 1950s and is
buried in Zurich. Her other son (?
SANDLER) went to Mexico City during or after the Holocaust, was married and
had a family. He might have been a professor at a university in Mexico
City. He would now very likely be deceased, and his children could be in
their 70-80s. My family was never in contact with this family in Mexico
City. Any possibility that someone knows of this family? If not, can anyone
lead me to a way to find information about the Jewish community in Mexico
City or Jewish immigrants to Mexico? Thanks,

Joe Lonstein East Lansing, MI <joelonstein@hotmail.com>

R. Mordechai BRANDEIS #rabbinic

Gregor Brand <Gregor.Brand@...>
 

I am interested in genealogical information about Rabbi (Marcus)
Mordechai Ben Eliezer BRANDEIS >from Francfort/Main, who died in 1769
and is buried in Amsterdam. He was a porsher and wrote several
seforim. He is a direct ancestor of the famous philosopher Karl
MARX.

Does anyone have information about the ancestry of this R. BRANDEIS,
who most probably was a scion of the Prague BRANDEIS family?
