I am looking for information on Brenda Seligman, wife of Prof Charles
Gabriel Seligman, both of Oxford, prolific anthropologists. Charles was the
son of Hermann Seligman, a London wine merchant, and Olivia de Costa Mendes,
sephardic Jews. I believe the Seligmans came >from Rensh. I wondered if
anyone has written a book about these people. They are mentioned in academic
papers quite often but I am looking for family historical information

What is the largest place in Galicia (east or west) which might have been
spelled samekh-kof-aleph-heh-lamed?

It is definitely not Skole (4902 2331) and it should be much larger.

Name EIDEL #ukraine

Joan Rosen...
 

It is a woman's name. In the U.S. it has become Ada, or Ida, Adele, and
perhaps others. My g-grandmother was apparently known as Bubba Adel. Her
name on the ship manifest was Eide. The -l or -el is added as a diminutive.

+$.10 notification fee. If someone orders a microfilm and wants it on
permanent loan-order plus two renewals and does the entire order + renewal
at the same time
it will be $16.50 +local sales tax plus $0.10 notification.

Microfiche fees will remain at $0.5 per fiche.

All renewals, including films ordered at the $3.25 fee, will be renewed at
the new rate of $5.50.

Bronxville/ NYC #general

Joseph Hirschfield
 

I know there is a town in Westchester County, NY named Bronxville; however
I would like someone to let me know if there is also a section of New York
City called Bronxville. According to his NYC birth certificate for 1908 one
of my uncles was born at 457 Chester St. Bronxville. Since it is a NYC birth
certificate I have to believe that Chester St. is in NYC, but where is
Bronxville. I could not find Chester St. in a yahoo map search. I also
looked up Chester St. in the Morse list of changed street names and it was
not listed.

PINS Family From Hoexter Are Sephardim #germany

Dear Ger Siggers,
I attended a memorial ceremony for the Jerusalem
artist and collector Jacob Otto PINS (1917-2005).He
was born in Hoexter to Leo and Ida PINS. Only 45 Jews
lived there until 1939. There are testimony pages for
them at Yad Vaswhem. I learned >from his brother that
the family lived in Germany since the 16th century.
The origin of the name is PINTO. They were >from Spain.

MODERATOR NOTE: Attention Roger Lustig - PINS sounds
like a candidate for your database.

SCHUSTER - Augsburg #germany

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

My distant cousin Henry BERGMANN (1831-1866), about
whom I have written in "Stammbaum", married Charlotte
Jenny SCHUSTER in Frankfurt-am-Main in 1860. In a
family paper she is described as being >from an
aristocratic Jewish family. I assumed that Miss
SCHUSTER was born in that town or nearby, but, now, I
have some information, which leads me to feel that she
may have come >from Augsburg, where there was a wealthy
SCHUSTER family.

Does anyone have any information on SCHUSTER families
in Augsburg?

MOD NOTE: Mr. Yamey's history of German Jewish families in
19th Century South Africa will appear in "Stammbaum N. 28"
to be published shortly. More information about "Stammbaum"

Re: Bad Salzungen Jewish Community & Roeschen SCHMIDT nee EISEMANN #germany

Ralph Baer
 

I made an error in my post yesterday. I stated:
"I add that there is an entry in the FTJP showing EISEMANNs in Bad Salzungen
who earlier lived in Bauerbach, Baden. If this is indeed where the Bad
Salzungen EISEMANNs came from, then it is less likely to be my family."

I have been informed that this Bauerbach is the one that is in Thueringen
(Thuringia). I did not know previously that this town existed.
It is between Meiningen in Thueringen and Mellrichstadt in Bayern. Thus,
it is still quite possible that it is the same family.
