Looking for descendants of Louis (Lewis) Rozenblat (Rosenblat) #bessarabia

Tsvika Roz <tsvikaroz@...>
 

I'm searching for my great uncle, Louis (Lewis) Rozenblat (Rosenblat)
from Leova (Leovo), Bessarabia.
Born in Leova c.1880 to Moshe & Dvora Rozenblat, the oldest (most
likely) brother of Hana Lederman, Sophia Sura Kachka, Joseph
Rozenblat; David Rozenblat and Mira Spivak.

Louis Rozenblat immigrated on his own to USA circa the beginning of
20th century. All we know is that there have been letter correspondence as well as
some parcels/packages >from him to the family. Most of the family had relocated after
WWII >from Bessarabia to Chernovic (Chernivtsi, Ukraine). As far as we know connection
has been lost/cut in the 1950's.

No other info available.

Any leads in finding this lost branch of the family tree will be appreciated.

Tsvi Rozenblat,
Israel

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

At its reception at the POLIN Museum in Warsaw on August 7, 2018, held
at the end of the day of the Joint AGAD-Gesher Galicia Symposium,
Gesher Galicia honored two women, both prominent in genealogical or
historical archival research, with lifetime achievement awards. The
awards, in the form of engraved plaques, were presented by Ann Harris,
Board Member and Treasurer of Gesher Galicia.

Shelley Pollero received her award for her longstanding and selfless
devotion to genealogy, benefiting Jewish family history researchers
worldwide.

Dorota Lewandowska was given her award for her work at AGAD over many
years, on records >from eastern Poland >from the time of the First
Partition of Poland onward, again greatly benefiting historical and
genealogical researchers.

These are short biographies of both of them.

Shelley Pollero was part of Gesher Galicia even before its official
founding in 1993 and served as president >from 1998 to 2005, during
which time the Gesher Galicia website was set up. She has been
researching her own family's history for 50 years. Currently, Shelley
Pollero is a Board Member and head of Membership for Gesher Galicia.
She is president of the Anne Arundel Genealogical Society in Maryland,
and presents Jewish family research workshops. She is also a
long-standing member of the Jewish Genealogical Societies in Greater
Washington, New York, and Maryland. Among much other voluntary work in
genealogy, she has transcribed Polish and Russian vital records, and
for many years organized translation services at genealogical
conferences.

Dorota Lewandowska is head of Section II of the Central Archives of
Historical Records in Warsaw (AGAD), covering records >from after 1772.
She is the author of numerous publications derived >from archival
sources at AGAD, which include the single largest collection of Jewish
vital record books >from the former eastern Galicia. Her own research
interests include the history of local register offices in the 19th
century, national uprisings in the 19th century, the history of the
Jews in Poland, and records of the Lutheran Church in Warsaw. Dorota
Lewandowska edited the 2008 edition of "Central Archives of Historical

(US) Family Search and Ellis Island Announce Expanded Ellis Island Records 1820-1957 Online for Free #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

All New York Passenger Lists are now free to search on the Ellis Island
Website! While Ellis Island opened in 1892, their website has added New York
ships' passenger lists back to 1820. FamilySearch and the Statue of
Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation announced that a searchable New York
passenger lists for 1820-1892 are available for free on the Ellis Island
website: https://www.libertyellisfoundation.org/passenger. The joint
project also has placed an index to the records on the free FamilySearch
website: https://www.familysearch.org/ . The index links to record images on
the Ellis Island site. On either website, you'll need a free registration to
view matches to your search results.

There are three distinct collections:

Castle Garden: New York Passenger Lists 1820-1891
https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1849782?collectionNameFilter=false

Ellis Island New York Passenger Arrival Lists 1892-1924
https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1368704?collectionNameFilter=false


New York, New York Passenger and Crew Lists 1909, 1925-1957 ( ships and
airplanes)
https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1923888?collectionNameFilter=false

On the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation website you may search and
view for free. However, downloading the passenger record must be purchased
as that is how the foundation gets support for its work.
However, by searching on FamilySearch and accessing the digitized record
there you are able to search, view and download to your computer for free.

History

A fire on Ellis Island in 1897 burned most of the New York Passenger lists
dating >from 1855 stored on the Island.
https://www.libertyellisfoundation.org/ellis-timeline
An interesting narrative about the fire appeared in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle
at the time of the fire, which may be read at:
http://members.tripod.com/~L_Alfano/BrooklynEagleJune15.htm

What we see on genealogy websites such as FamilySearch, Ancestry, My
Heritage etc. are actually the customs lists. What are custom's lists? The
ship's purser recorded the customs list alongside passenger lists the US
Customs Office collected passenger lists >from ship's captains. These records
have been microfilmed and indexed, and now fill the holes burned by the 1897
fire.

(Netherlands) Europe's Drought Results in Gravestones Visible that Were Hidden Previously #general

Europe is having a prolonged heatwave and drought this summer. As a result
it has exposed buried gravestones, in the historic Beth Haim Portuguese

was founded in 1614 and includes over 27,500 burials. The drought exposed
stones that had sunken over centuries which now have become visible.

Fw: GOODMAN family #ukraine

ruth mills <ruthmills2@...>
 

Hi All, 

I'm hoping somebody can help me find the origins of my great grandfather Louis GOODMAN in Kiev. He is buried in London, UK and his headstone gives his Hebrew name as Yehudah Lieb son of Meir. He was born in 1865 in Kiev - source British census of 1901. He arrived in London with his wife Rebecca nee SCORAZIN/SUEREZIN approximately 1895 (Rebecca's surname is uncertain and recorded differently on the birth certificates of the children born in London. They had 2 children in Kiev Hyman b1890 and Annie b1892, and 5 more children in London Marks b1896, David b1900, Lena b1902, Barney b1903 and Reuben b1905. The family was deported back to Kiev where Rebecca died she is according to family story buried in Kiev, and Louis married again to Gertie (sorry I don't know anything more about her). By 1909 the family had returned to London, and Louis died in 1909, the children were scattered with three ending up in a school in Kings Lynn UK, and two ending up in an orphanage in South London. The eldest two children were working.
It is possible Louis is related to both Mordechai b1882 and Gershon b1874 GOODMAN also both >from Kiev and resident in London, and a Benjamin GOODMAN b1858 Kiev who went to America.
Any pointers or information gratefully received.

Regards

Ruth Mills
