FRANKEL/FRENKEL/FRENKIEL from Plock or Gombin are #poland

Dear JRI-Poland researchers,

Recent research and breakthroughs have now (after many years)
extended my FRANKEL last name further back in time.

My great grandparents Mosek Jakob FRANKEL/FRENKEL married Tyla
WYTWORNIK in Plock, Poland in June, 1890. The couple then moved to
London where they had ten children. All their descendents have been
researched. They Anglicized their names to Morris Jacob and
Milly/Tilly FRANKEL

What is now new to me is that Mosek's father was Majer Symche
FRENKIEL who was, at the time of the marriage widowed and living in
Gombin (aka Gabin). His deceased wife was Sura Ruchla ZIELINKA.

I also now know that Morris had several siblings: Dobra (Deborah?),
Gershon David, Mendel, Herz and Laja.

If anyone recognizes these names, I would appreciate their contact
me off list.

Thanks

Jeremy

IAJGS 2016 Seattle conference update and a request #yiddish

bounce-3023415-772983@...
 

Plans are moving ahead as we prepare for the 36th Annual IAJGS
Conference on Jewish Genealogy, August 7-12, 2016, at the Sheraton
Downtown in Seattle.

One option we are exploring is a seven day Alaska cruise either before
or after the conference. This would not be a conference event, per se,
but it would be a great opportunity for a different type of adventure
for those who are coming to the Great Northwest next August. These
cruises leave >from the Seattle Cruise Terminal, a short cab ride from
the hotel, and go up the Inside Passage along the southeastern coast of
Alaska. Typically, they offer spectacular views of glaciers that meet
the ocean, views of the forests and wildlife of southeastern Alaska, and
all the amenities of a family oriented cruise. Prices start around $900
per person, double occupancy for an inside cabin, including cabin and
meals, and a variety of accommodations are available on board these
fully equipped cruise ships.

Stops would include possibly Ketchikan, Juneau, Glacier Bay National
Park, Skagway, and either Vancouver or Victoria on the return trip. If
we get a sufficient number of people booking together, the price will be
discounted.

We expect there will be options for those who keep kosher, either
pre-packaged kosher meals or vegetarian meals.

One cruise option we are looking at would depart Seattle either July 28
or 29th, (Thursday or Friday), returning to Seattle on August 4 or 5
(Thursday or Friday). The other option would be a cruise departing
either August 15 or 16 (Monday or Tuesday), returning August 22 or 23.

We would like some input >from those who are interested in taking one of
these cruises. Please let us know if you would be interested in a
cruise, your preference either before or after the conference, and how
many would be in your party. We also need to have an idea how many of
you would require a kosher option. These are family oriented cruises,
and we are informed that there are a lot of things to do on the boat for
all ages of children, as well as the rest of us older folks. If there
is sufficient interest expressed before October 5, we will proceed with
our plans and let you know when we have finalized arrangements. If not,
it was a great idea. The Alaskan cruises are extremely popular and
would be a great way to see a beautiful part of the country that
relatively few people get to see.

If you are interested, please respond to Chuck Weinstein directly at
chuck@iajgs2016.org, and let us know what you think. Again, this will
not be an organized conference event, but it will be a great opportunity
to turn your conference experience into a wonderful vacation to remember
and cherish for years to come.

INTRO - Seeking possible Jewish ancestors - BOPP, NOFSINGER, KRAFT, GANZER ? #germany

Micah Nofsinger <xgamerx65@...>
 

Shalom GerSig, I just joined the group. I have been trying to trace my
Jewish roots for a few weeks now. I live in Missouri, United States
(USA). My native language is English. I consider myself advanced in
using a computer, but I'm completely new to geneologies. My experience
in using the Internet is extensive. My primary research goals now is
to find all of the Jewish evidence of my ancestry as I can. My JGFF
Researcher ID number is 691845.

Here is my maternal Jewish genealogy as far back as I can find it:
Elizabeth/Eliza BOPP was the daughter of Jacob & Barbara/Nancy BOPP.
They immigrated to America and docked in Texas. Elizabeth was born 19
Jan 1856 in Zurich Canton, Switzerland. She died 05 Mar 1940 in Kansas
City, MO with burial in the Ganzer family cemetery just 4 miles south
of Raytown, Missouri in the area of Lee's Summit, MO.
Elizabeth married Karl Friedrich Wilhem GANZER on 19 Oct 1873 in
McKinney, Texas (so they docked in Texas prior to 1873). Karl was born
in 1851 in Berlin, Germany and died in 1909 in Lee's Summit, Missouri.
Karl & Elizabeth had 14 children.
Their 13th child was Eda/Edith Flora GANZER. She was born 13 Sep 1894
in Hickman Mills, Jackson County, Missouri and died 09 Mar 1961 in
Sundland, California. Eda married William James McKnight, Sr on 20 Jul
1912 in Kansas City, Mo. Eda and Wm. had 4 children.
Their oldest child was Dorothy Ruth McKnight (1914-2000). She
married Emory C. Kraft, Sr. on 28 Oct 1935 in Kansas City, Mo. Emory
was born in 1911 and died in 1983. Both are buried in Marysville,
Kansas. They had 3 children.
Their 2nd child is James Stanley Kraft (Micah's grandpa). James
married Lova Hattie Fincham on 01 Jun 1959. They have 4 children.
Their 3rd child is Vicki Lola Kraft, Vicki Lola KRAFT married
Scott Edward NOFSINGER, they had 3 children. Micah Nofsinger is the
youngest of the 3 children.

Historical records: "Bopp, Anna Barbara, von Otelfingen, -, 34, mit
einem Knaben und 2 Maedchen, nach Nordamerika; 10.8.1869 (PP 38.63,
1869, Nr. 300)"

tei.spooler.download.1282657112934.pdf/Passerteilungen_1848-1870.pdf)

I'm Micah Nofsinger. Also I know that the Bopp family crest has the
star of David therein. Can you guys help me find evidence that the
Bopps (And possibly Ganzers) were Jewish? I don't know where to look
or what to look for, nor do I have certain resources (Like
ancestry.com) to search indepth, and I don't know how to use JewishGen
sufficiently, I tried surname searches and I found some Bopps but from
what I know and found I don't know if they're related. Help!

searching for French family #france

Tim Homewood
 

Salut mes amis, my Jewish family has been in London since the first half
of the 19th Century but there are family stories of a French branch of
the family. Unfortunately I have no more information beyond the fact
that my great great grandfather was known by his grand children as "Père
Louis" and that the French family were regular visitors to London in the
late 19th Century.

I've just started looking into this mysterious branch of the family and
would love to hear any suggestions to help my research.

What I know is that Louis JACOBS was almost certainly born in the
Congress of Poland in the mid-1820s. He arrived in London probably in
the mid-1840s, certainly by 1849. He was a boot and slipper maker. I
can't identify the town of birth or his Polish name.

Louis' father was Henry JACOBS. Louis married Leah HENRY in 1850, the
daughter of a German migrant, Solomon HENRY.

I have considerable information about Louis >from his marriage to his
death in 1891. I have no information about his father Henry except for
his profession, cigar maker.

My impression is that if the family came >from Poland to France (and then
to London) they are likely to come to Paris, rather than the eastern or
south western Jewish communities. Is this correct? If so, my search
should be in Paris records.

I've seen that the Paris records >from this period are very patchy. I've
looked through some of the re-constructed records but haven't found any
of my family there. Does anyone have suggestions on areas to explore?

Are there existing synagogue records that could give me some
information? I'm hoping to receive Louis and Leah's ketubah soon which
may give some more information about the family names.

I've joined GenAmi and have looked through the records but so far I
haven't found anything.

Sorry this request is so broad but it would be great to have some
direction. Thanks for your time,
Tim

Our relative, a townsman of Criuleni, near Chisinau, obtained his travel documents in
Odessa Aug. 1913, to travel to New York via Canada. He left Russia at the Austro-Hungarian
rail border crossing of Podwoloczyska (Volochysâ??ka), Ukriane. However he got to Antwerp,
he traveled >from Antwerp, Belgium to the Port of Quebec near Montreal, Canada on the SS
Montezuma. He was sent by train (Rutland Railroad) to Alberg, VT, where he was admitted

got >from Podwoloczyska to Antwerp. Things may have been different in 1905, or perhaps this

Dear researchers,

Pamela Weisberger passed away on September 25th (see a message below).

Pamela was Vice-President of Programs at Jewish Genealogical Society of LA,
and also head and a leader of Gesher Galicia Special Interest Group.

It is so sad to get such message, especially if you know person well and she
was always full of energy and enthusiasm. I have met Pamela first time in Philadelphia
at the Jewish Genealogical conference in 2009 and since that we met every year in the
auditorium or in corridors or in bars of the conferences.  She always was busy with next
projects, always smiling and telling a new story.

At my first conferences I would go to Pamela?s presentations of her SIG and
lectures just learn >from her experience. Two years ago we started talking
about a project to do together Gesher Galicia SIG and Bessarabia SIG.  There
are many Galician Jews who end up in Bessarabia in 19 century, and we know
that >from our Bessarabian records and >from other sources. There would be a
very interesting project to research >from which towns Galician Jews came to
Bessarabia, possible their professions, life style, etc. they brought to
Bessarabia.
Unfortunately we did not have time to proceed with the project. 

Our condolences to Pamela's family. 
May God comfort you among the other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Dear Sub-Carpathia researchers,

( I did not receive this notice directly, I read about it in other mail
lists. )

With great sadness and loss, I learned of the untimely passing of Pamela
Weisberger.

Pamela had a direct connection to Sub-Carpathia in several hamlets,
including Chop (Csap) and Uzhhorod (Ungvar), and contributed content to
the respective KehilaLink web sites for the benefit of current and future
researchers.

Her research and work on behalf of Sub-Carpathia researchers have
benefited all of us, most recently with her announcement about Cadastral
maps for our region.

Through her accomplishments and intense dedication, Pamela will be
fondly remembered and profoundly missed by all of us.

May she rest in peace.

Respectfully,
Marshall Katz

maps for our region.

Through her accomplishments and intense dedication, Pamela will be
fondly remembered and profoundly missed by all of us.

May she rest in peace.

Respectfully,
Marshall Katz
Sub-Carpathia SIG coordinator
