Metz - Matusevicius #lithuania

Sondra Ettlinger <settlinger@...>
 

My uncle was Herman Metz (born 1898 in Lithuania) who married Harriett
Diamond in 1940. Herman was living in Staten Island, New York when he died
in 1995. Both Herman and Harriett are buried at A.M. White Lodge Cemetery
in Totowa, New Jersey. I am researching Herman's branch of the family. I
believe he had three brothers: Robert (b abt. 1888 or 1889), Harry (b abt.
1889), and Samuel (b abt. 1887). The original family name was Matusevicius
or Matusevich and they may have come >from the Kaunas (Kovno) area or
district. Their father was Leon (Leyba?) Matusevicus. Some of the brothers
took the name of Mates or Metes. I have found a grave stone in the A.M.
White Lodge Cemetery in Totowa, N.J. for Norman M. Mates whose name appears
on the Certificate of Death for my Aunt Harriett. He is listed on the death
certificate as a nephew, and I believe his father was Uncle Herman's brother
Robert.

Does anyone in this sig have information about this family? Does anyone
know how I could find out if there are any other Metz or Mates graves in the
A.M. White Lodge Cemetery in Totowa, N.J.?

Replies could be sent to me privately at settlinger@comcast.net

Traveling to the US via Japan in the early 20th Century #latvia

allanli@...
 

My father left Lithuania as a young boy some time during the period of
the WWI/Russian Revolution. Instead of taking the usual route via
England the family traveled via Japan and entered South Africa through
Durban. I understand that many Jews emigrating to the US during this
time also took this route arriving in the US at various west coast
ports, such as Seattle. I am interested to find out whether anyone knows
more about this journey across Russia via Japan to South Africa and the
US - how they traveled across Russia, where they stayed in Japan. who
organized their stay, how their trips to the US and South Africa were
organized, etc.

Thanks

Information on Lauknen (Gromovo) #germany

michael@...
 

Can anyone advise me on sources about Lauknen (Now Gromovo) which was in
the East Prussian region of Koenigsberg (Lithuania Minor now Kaliningrad,)
(e.g. trade directories, phone directories, birth, marriage and death
records, town map etc)

I am researching my wife's Koenigsberg family (ASCHKANASY),and her Great
Grandfather was Heymann KUTZWOR who lived in Lauknen in 1881 where he
had a shop 'H Kutzwor' (we have a photograph) with his wife Caecilie
RAPPOPORT. His father was Josef and his mothers maiden name
may be SAUDELOWSKY or SLADOWSKY. Lauknen or Gromovo do not seem to have
ever been mentioned before in the forum.

Dear all,

What is the difference between Kamenetz Podolski and Kamenetz
Litovsk? Are these two different places in two different countries?
I am told we are >from Kamenetz Litovsk, so I am confused as to where
