JUDY HOLLIDAY, the Comedic Actress -- Family Name was JONTIFF #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>
 

I have been searching (without much luck) for information regarding my
mother's mother's parents. I've found some family >from the woman's side
of the family (LEVINE, LEVINSKY, BIALAGORSKY). Unfortunately, finding
information about my mggf's family -- COHAN/COPLIN/COPELAND/COPLAND
family -- is terrible sparse.

I know that my mggf, Hyman (Yechezekiel) COHAN had a brother, Solomon
COPLIN. Solomon was married to Esther JONTIFF. I've not been able to
learn anything more about the brothers so far. So, it's time to find
out if there's information available about their wives. In this case,
it's Esther JONTIFF's family that I'm looking for.

Esther was an aunt or cousin (I'm not sure which) of the "not so dumb
blonde" actress Judy HOLLIDAY (nee: JONTIFF). Is there anyone out
there who has any information about the JONTIFF family? If so, please
email me direct at <rickiz@...>

TIA,

I have my father's original naturalization certificate which says he became
a citizen on 12/13/10. While checking an index for my uncle's
naturalization I came across the index card for my father.This card lists
an "old" certifcate # dated 12/13/10 and a "new"certificate # dated
2/25/13! No explanation is given and only the 2 witnesses for the "old"
certificate are listed.I checked the petition I have carefully and found
the same two certificate numbers and dates noted in handwritten ink in the
section labled "Order of the court admitting petitioner".
I found something similar. The only thing I could think of was that the
original certificate was misplaced/lost and proof of citizenship was need for
something. Therefore the court issued a new certificate.

I have discovered that my great-grandmother's grandfather was Nathan Schupf (of Schapf). He was the
brother of Rabbi EliMelech. I assume trees have been done of the ancestries of Rabbis. Where can I
find the ancestry tree of EliMelech or any descendants?

Stanley Diamond <sdiamond@...>
 

Hi,

Looks as if the original Stanley Diamond has done enough for this group to
earn his email address at the bottom of even my post. I'm just a Stanley
come lately, and I live in Massachusetts, and don't have an AOL address.

The children of Benjamin Bernstein would have started appearing late in the
first decade of this century, by the way, and so they would be seriously
mature at this time. Their children would be very seriously thinking about
social security at this point.

Thanks.

By the way, my email address is sdiamond@... (it seems more upscale
than the $10 per month ISP I use, and if I leave them, I'll be able to
continue using the same email address) . If, by chance, I post again, I'll
try to make it a point to show enough distinction between Stanley Diamond in
Montreal and me so that confusion won't reign.

Case of mistaken identity! #general

Stanley Diamond
 

Well, it happened, not only did I find another Stanley M. Diamond
in this world, but his middle name is Marc (mine is Mark) and we
have the same Hebrew names as well, i.e. Shalom Mendel...

And my namesake even confused the new JewishGen software
which ignored his email address at the beginning of the message
(see below) but instead added mine at the end. So, even before
receiving my digest today, I already received two replies to the
other Stanley M. Diamond's message >from friends of mine on
JewishGen.

So, >from now on, I will try to remember to add (Montreal) to all my
posts and I will ask my new email pal Stanley to put his Massuchusetts
town on his!

By the way, my new "friend" Stanley lives in the next town >from my
daughter Rachel (Westford, MA) and they exchanged some email.
After Rachel wrote him and addressed the message to "Dear Dad"
he has started referring to her as "our" daughter Rachel.

Researchers in Russia #general

Meyer Denn <lionsden@...>
 

Hi everybody!

A couple of years ago, I made contact with a professional (or at least he
promoted himself as a professional researcher) who offered to provide
records >from the files of the Russian Secret Police (pre-1917). He did
some research for me at the time which did not seem to be going anywhere,
however, _Now_ I have found that his research might very well be helpful to
someone who I have recently met.

Unfortunately, I have misplaced his address and do not even remember his
name. I _do_ remember that others on Jewishgen at the time had used his
services and were not happy with the results and posted their
dissatisfaction online.

If _anyone_ remembers this fellow and his name and email address, would you
be so kind as to send it to me privately, as I have a feeling that this
individual would like to make contact with him.

Thanks and let me take this opportunity to wish all of my fellow
Jewishgenners a happy, healthy and prosperous new year >from the holy city
of Jerusalem,

Samuel FLESCHER #general

Claude M. Oulman <oulman@...>
 

Searching for information on Samuel Marcus Levy FLESCHER, born circa 1765.
Four children: Sarah, Johanna, Jonas, Phillipine. With the death, in
Cassel, of the unmarried Jonas Flescher (1798-1858), the surname Flescher
in this line died out. Hence, I am searching for Fleschers contemporary or
earlier with Samuel.

My descent is >from Sarah FLESCHER (born 1794), and husband Meyer Isaac
WALLACH who both died in 1830 in Cassel, Germany, leaving four children.

I have plenty of info on the descendancy, but not the ancestry. Help would
be greatly appreciated.
