Re: Found ancestor in ancient document #general

Miriam Maimouni <MMAIMOUNI@...>
 

I am so excited! We've always thought that our family should be
"numerous like the stars in the sky" (BTW, does that ring a bell??) ---

Family lore has it that we, too, have an ancestor who, in fact, built
the biggest ship of his time, and he was into wine growing as well. I'm
not sure about the spelling of his name but my ggf said it sounded
something like "Noach" (Noakh in English), and when the family went to
live abroad later on, the guttural "ch" sound somehow got lost -- Would
it be rash to assume that we may be related? Do you know anything about
his wife, or the wives of his sons? BTW, my gf said there's a story
about a big scandal around one of them --

I've had the same problem with ships' records and found an interesting
piece of literature that has been on the market forever altho under
various names, moreover the author(s?) apparently wanted to remain
anonymous - try any bookshop for "Genesis", they should have it if they
are any good. It's written in semi-documentary style so it's hard to
tell what's "hard facts"... There's a possibility that back then, they
did not keep records, or at least not systematically. But I've heard
that a number of scholars and researchers have worked on it for quite a
while, there even used to be some sort of "school" somewhere over in the
Middle East, if I remember right it was either Palestine or Babylonia?

Other names I've found out are Aram, Ophir, Kusch and Kittim but I
haven't been able to establish exactly the lines of relation. Do you
have any of these names in your tree??

Shalom,
Miriam Maimouni, Berlin

MODERATOR NOTE: Thank you all who entered into the spirit of fun.

the Montefiore Home and Hospital in 1919. She entered it in 1916. Growing up in
the Bronx, I am familiar with Montefiore Hospital. Can anyone give me
information on the Home? How can I obtain info for the year 1919? Thank-you,

What I'm hoping for is some additional spellings for the name Unchel, I've
searched several data bases and haven't come up with a match so I know I'm
spelling it wrong.
My guess would be that it's a variation of Anschel (also Amschel, Anselm).
This is a not-too-uncommon first name, and therefore might also pop up
occasionally as a last name.

For Unchel try: Unszel

I'm trying to find my LAPIDUS cousins. This is the only branch of known
cousins we can't find. Yetta Lobel married Al Lapidus. Yetta was born
in 1910. They had two sons, Marvin and Harvey. Harvey married Roz.
That's all the info I have, other than Harvey and Marvin were born in
the 1930s. Thanks.
