No, you may not assume. Not all Zucker used to be Zuckerman.

There is a family in Dallas named Cukier. Should I assume this is a

Re: Valentine as Jewish Given Name - a case history #germany

Marcus Poulin <photonicbandgap@...>
 

Could such French names such as Valyntin or Valentin be showing up stemming from
the time when France controlled Rheinland Pfalz (the Rhineland Palatinate region)
in the 17th century?

Certainly many other times in Franco-German history that French names and
cognates could have undergone intercultural transference / exchange. Sincerely,

Re: Records from Iasi/ ZUCKERMAN #romania

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Ann,

I am not sure what you are referring to when you speak of going through
microfilm. Is it that you are looking for Mormon films? If so, I can
tell you that the Romanians have never permitted them in to do any
filming , so such microfilms for Romania do not exist.

Have you checked the the All-Romanian database on JewishGen? Have you
checked the JGFF on JewishGen to see if there are others seeking the
same name/town as you? Have you entered your own names and town?

As has been posted on this list many times, the Romanian archives do not
respond to mail requests. Those who wish to actually make a visit to
Romania, and visit Archives, must request permission >from the National
Archives to even enter, several months in advance, and will need a
translator to assist them, if they do not speak Romanian. At present
the only viable method of retrieving family records is by means of a
certified professional researcher, for a fee. And, for about 6 months
they, too, were denied entrance. We understand that a couple have now
been allowed back in, but with strict limitations as to what they can
and cannot see and do. We are still trying by a number of different
routes to ameliorate the situation.

Naturalization records name a ship and date that do not correspond.
If anyone can help and point me in the right direction for information

Konstancin suburbs? #warsaw #poland

George Mason <gmason3815@...>
 

I have just come across an old family photograph, taken about 1925, that
shows my father with his father and grandmother, Lea/Lena Mozesson (wife of
Shimel/Simon), with the caption, "at her [Lea's] villa in Warsaw suburbs at
Konstancin near Warsaw". Can anyone tell me about this suburb and how I may
go about locating where the Mosesson villa may have been? What kind of a
house would a "villa" have been in those days?
Thank You,

I believe that these editors all live in Israel.

Re: Recent Posting- NY & PA Passenger Lists Free to search #general

Barbara Zimmer <bravo.zulu@...>
 

I wouldn't suggest using an exclusive search for Poland for the years
from 1851 to 1891. Remember that Poland didn't exist for part of that
period becuase it was absorbed into the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
[Sorry, but I can't remember the dates when Poland existed and when
it did not.]
I have relatives who believe that our family came >from "Austria",
when in reality our towns are now in Ukraine and were once part of
the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
I have my grandmother's Austro-Hungarian Empire passport >from 1901
(several tattered pages) which are written in the two official
language of Polish and German.

As for the free search, you can try using the "Best Match"
alternative. No, I don't think their list is complete --- but
remember that many people came in through other nearby ports and not
in NYC.

That's what I initially experienced, too, until I scrolled down to the expanded
