New Subscriber #general

Russell Johnson <russell.johnson@...>
 

Hello List,
I am a new subscriber and I am researching my paternal great-grandfather
Charles Solomon LANDA his Hebrew name was Betsalel Shelomo ben Avrohom
Eliezer. He arrived in Leeds, England around 1860-70. I don't know where
from exactly as he appears on censuses to have ben born in either Poland or
Russia or Prussia. He was married twice. I think his first wife was Betsy
and he had at least three children >from that marriage: Henry, Hannah (Annie)
and Herman. He remarried Rachel BLAMAN also widowed in Leeds in 1873 and had
three more children: Myer, Fanny and Isaac. I know a little bit about these
as my grandfather was Isaac and I have used a professional researcher to
help me with synagogue records and such.
I am not Jewish, I did not know until about 3 weeks ago that my ancestors
were Jewish. I am not getting any support in my search >from my father. This
is not only sad, but makes it all the more difficult. He is my only living
relative, as far as I know.
I am searching for _anything_ about any descendants of my great-grandfather
(>from either marriage). I am also interested to find out more about the
lives Jews at that time led. I am hoping that you will all be able to help
me.
Thank you for reading this message.
Peace and blessings,
Sherry Landa

The Surname MOHEL as part of "The Oldest Professions" #general

Judith27
 

Dear All,
In this morning's edition of *THE FORWARD* the columnist Philologos
focused on a question >from Richard Israel of Mass who asked: "Is there any
name in Jewish life that honors an ancestor mohel (italicized in article) or
circumciser?"
Philologos did a survey of Israeli telephone books and he concluded
that "The name Mohel does exist among Jews, but it is very rare." Anyone with
thoughts or comments on why Mohel seems to be such a rare and uncommon
surname - especially as compared to such other religiously connected surnames
as Rabiner, Dayan, Hasid, Beck all of which the author touches upon in this
article - can contact Philologos at philologos@forward.com
Shalom,
Judi Langer-Surnamer Caplan, Long Beach, NY

Death Certificate Details #general

Pappapeach@...
 

Dear fellow Genners;

I just received a death certificate for a man with the same name as my
maternal grandfather. The problem is, the certificate does not say
anything about when, where, or to who he was born. (Died 1935, Wales.)
Does anyone know, is this standard for this time and place?

The only nice piece of information on the certificate, it says what he
died of. As a piece of genealogy information, it is worthless. Also,
I have to say "same name as", because the surrounding information is so
little, it is hard to tell if it is the right person, or mearly another
at the same time period with the same name.
Thanks to all,

David Edelman, San Francisco.

Calculating Distances #general

Paul Fisher <fisherpaul@...>
 

I just found out how to calculate the distance >from Bremen, Germany to
my grandma's sthetl, Touste, Ukraine. Bremen is 791 miles >from Touste.

Anyone can do this with the Sthetl Finder. First you get the latitude
and longitude for your ancestor's sthetl.

Then you plug these numbers into the advanced feature.

Then type in the name of the city and corresponding country for
which you wish to find the distance. It doesn't have to be the same
country as your sthetl.

Since my 4 grandparents came >from 3 sthetls, in Poland, Lithuania and
Ukraine I now know how far apart they are and could go to all three on
the same trip.
