Regarding the inquiry about Lily Fuld. My grandparents, Rachel and
Albert Isaacs took in a refugee called Lily Fuld who came on one of the
Kindertransports and she lived with them in Manchester during the war
months, according to what my late father used to tell me. He also
mentioned that her sister was taken in by another member of the family.
Is it possible this is the same Lily Fuld? We often wondered what
happened to them.

Hello....I've been reading about Woolanee Rd here on JCR-UK and it rang
a bell -- at least somewhat. I recently received a copy of my family's
1881 census form and their address at that time was:

27 Wool more St. (Tower Hamlets) Mile End, London, UK

Its conceivable that with uncertainty and bad writing that Woolmore could
turn in to Woolanee. But, of course, its not for sure. I, too, have
come across some outrageous contortions of names and words in my 20 years
of research so anything can happen.

Scholar Searching for Sephardic/Canary Island Manuscripts #general

Roger L. Martinez <roger.martinez@...>
 

I am contacting the listserve today to seek any kind assistance
anyone may be able to provide in the location of several critical
historical manuscripts relating to the Sephardic Diaspora >from Spain
during the 15th through 18th centuries, specifically a small
collection manuscripts >from Spanish Inquisition in the Canary
Islands. My hope is that if I can locate and access these records, I
will be able to make a small, but important contribution to the
history of the lives of Sephardic Jews as they migrated to the
Americas and England.

Specifically, I am attempting to locate the current provenance of
this fragmentary collection of Spanish Inquisition manuscripts >from
the Canary Islands >from 1499 to 1700 that were previous held in the
collection of the Scottish Marquess of Bute, but were sold at
Sotheby=92s Auction House in London on 30 October 1950. These
invaluable records, detailing a critical period of movement of
Sephardic Jews >from Spain to England and the Americas, were sold to a
person or an organization in the United States. After communicating
with the archivist for the Marquess of Bute and Sotheby’s about these
manuscripts, I have only learned that these documents were sold to,
“Driscoll - America.”

For your information, my name is Roger L. Martinez
(roger.martinez@mail.utexas.edu) and I am a doctoral candidate in the

Department of History at the University of Texas at Austin that is
currently conducting dissertation research on a Sephardic Jewish and
converso family in Spain, Portugal, England and the Americas.
Specifically, I am investigating the 500-year lineage of the Spanish
Carvajal Family >from 1200 to 1700. As an academic historian that is
entirely dependent on primary documents to reconstruct the history of
this family, I have traveled extensively to archives in Spain,
Portugal, Mexico, and the United States to access critical historical
manuscripts. Unfortunately, these travels have not yielded
information on these vital Inquisition records >from the Canary
Islands and they now appear to remain in the hands of a private
collector or institution. Similarly, my own research searches of the
Jewish history collections in libraries and archives in the United
States have turned up no information on these manuscripts.

Should anyone have any knowledge about the current location of these
manuscripts, I would greatly appreciate an email note with that
information.

In closing, please know that I will carefully abide by any requests
for privacy and anonymity >from those persons and organizations that
provide me details relating to these manuscripts. My only purpose
for locating these records is to restore to our modern view those
precious lives that for now remain lost.

Thank you for your kind attention to my inquiry.

Washington DC marriages performed by M.A. Horwitz--Help, please! #lithuania

David Gordon
 

Over the past seven years or so, I have tried to publicize the stack
of original marriage licenses and certificates I inherited >from my
great-grandfather, Moses Aaron Horwitz, so that I could return the
originals to their families. He performed hundreds of marriages in
Washington, DC, >from about 1912 to 1935.

The project has been quite successful and I have returned hundreds of
documents over the years.

Unfortunately, when my hard disk was recently erased, one of the few
unrecoverable files was my complete list of every document I returned
and information about the person who requested it. This information
has proved extremely valuable in putting families in touch with each
other when, unbeknownst to each other, different people in the
extended family requested the same items.

I am writing now to ask the help of anyone who ever received a license
or certificate >from me. In order to continue to help serve everyone,
would you please take a moment to write me (private, of course) with
the following bits of information: the names of the bride and groom,
the approximate date I sent it it you (if known), and--most important
of all--your contact information (address AND e-mail). I have never
shared this information with anyone except others requesting the same
exact documents and will never do so.

I cannot emphasize how truly valuable having this information has
been. If you are grateful for the small service I provided, I will in
turn be most grateful to everyone who replies--privately--to me.=20

I responded to Yale Reisner's offer for him to look up our surnames in the
Telephone Books which the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation in Warsaw, Poland had
recently received.

Yale was kind enough, as he always is, to provide me a lengthy list of
entries for my family names. I am sharing them with all of you in the hopes
that you may find information on your family.

I do not have any more information on any of these people, so please do not
direct questions to me. This discussion list is the place to find out if
anyone else knows anything about these people.

Dear List,

I checked the Segula Cemetery data base, and sent a private e-mail to
Geoff with the information he requested. However, immediately after
doing so, I remembered that the Segula Cemetery is one of the
cemeteries that was added to the JewishGen JOWBR data base .

The direct URL is http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/

A search on KAISER (sounds like) limiting to Israel only returns 50
hits. Most are D-M similar names. However, all 3 KAISERs that are on
the Segula data base appear on the JOBWR.

I must point out, however, that some of the information such as
section and row # are listed only in Hebrew. Anyone who doesn't read
Hebrew will still have a problem getting the exact location.

Hi Geoff
I was not aware of the www.sgula.org site
but two years ago JFRA, the Jewish Family Research Association of Israel
had a project where we took the 53,000 names >from Segula-Petah Tikva
and transliterated them to be searchable under the JOWBR project
of JewishGen. (Last year we did the same with the 35,000 names of Netanya)

So: go to JewishGen, find JOWBR by going to the menu
databases, general, JOWBR

or scrolling down on the first page to
Projects and activities
<http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/>;JewishGen Online
Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR)

you end up on
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/
where you enter kaiser as the surname, regardless of spelling(!)
and Israel as the region

Up pops a list of 55 names which sound alike
and there at http://tinyurl.com/cqyvd
you will find Efraim Keizer (don't even think about the way it is written,
the transliteration followed some rules, which were set when we started)
who had a father Zeev (Wolf) and who died on the 4th of March 1986

In the grave next to his is Marash? (Marsha? mem-resh-heh can be a
lot of things)
who died 11 May 1983, her father was Avraham
It can be the wife without a maiden name, the system isn't foolproof...

There is another Keizer this time Ilana, father Nisan, died 23 Sep 1988
and a Chaim Kaiser father also Chaim, died 30 Jan 1969

I tried to look up Kaizer in Hebrew in the Sgula.org site
but couldn't find it.... (The cemetery had given us the surname as
kuf-yud-yud-zayin-resh) take care

How to find records of family members who came into the USA through Boston? #poland

Jeffrey Hoffman, DDS <fisherbeer@...>
 

I have tried searching Ellis Island records and cannot find my
grandmother and two aunts >from Grymalow, Poland (now Ukraine).

One of my cousins thinks they may have entered the US though a
port in Boston. Can anyone provide information for me to search
in that direction?

Thanks, Jeff Hoffman
