ADLER Connections in New York #belarus

Robert Elkin <bobelk@...>
 

I am seeking information about cousins of my grandfather, Jacob ADLER,
who came to New York in 1905. My mother, Esther ADLER, spoke of
cousins, including Jennie WEINGARTEN, who lived in New York.
Other relatives have spoken of an Adler Family Circle.
Any information will be appreciated.

Hi All:

Going through the books my mother left me I came across one entitled
"Musicans of a Wandering Race", copywright 1927.

There are lists of names of Jewish composers, violinists, conductors,
singer.

Names like:
Composers: George Bizet, Paul Dukas, Gustav Mahler, Darius Mihaud,
Jacques Offenbach, Maurice Ravel, Camille Saint-Saens, Oscar Strauss
(Choclate Soldier-no relation to the Waltz composers).

Conductors: Otto Klemperer, Serge Koussevitzky, Pierre Monteux, Bruno
Walter.

My name is Mark Spiegel and I am a new member of the Belarus Sig.
I have just read your message concerning Kobrin and noticed you
are also researching the family DAITCH >from Divin.

I am not familiar with the name Divin but .... my mother's family
name is Taitz. Her grandparents were Chaim Moshe and Hannah Marie
TEITSCH (spelling on the immigration entry card) >from Dvinsk,
Latvia (present day Daugauvpils).

In researching the name TAITZ/TEITSCH and I found one variation was
DAITCH/DAJTCH. Chaim's father, by the way, was Yehuda Pincus TAITZ.
He died sometime between 1889 and 1903 as my grandfather (2nd son)
is named after him. The family immigrated to Baltimore on 12/22/12
aboard the S.S. Barbarossa.

If any of this helps, or if you would like to share any information
on the family Daitch, please let me know.

Good luck with your search.

LEPON/LEPONSKY from Pale to Cleveland, OH #general

Barry Zwick <Barry.Zwick@...>
 

I'm in the early stages of searching for ancestors of approximately 12
brothers and sisters named LEPONSKY who emigrated >from the Pale of
Settlement to Cleveland, Ohio, around the turn of the (last) century. Once
in the United States, they used the name LEPON. I will be checking in the
usual places once I get specifics on places and dates, but if anyone has
done this research already, I would most appreciate a contact. Thanks very
much.

I can help a little.

I'm not sure what the "h" before the 5101 13th Ave. address is, but if
that's not significant, these two addresses are two blocks >from each
other, both in the Boro Park neighborhood. Most, if not all of Boro Park
is in an area like a grid with numbered avenues intersecting with numbered
streets. The addresses on any given street or avenue are in blocks of 100,
corresponding to the cross streets. Thus, 4916 13th Ave. is between 49th
and 50th Streets and 5101 13th Ave. is probably on the corner of 51st
Street, between 51st and 52nd Street.

As another example, my grandparents lived on the 1500 block of 51st Street,
between 15th and 16th Avenues.

537 E. 95th Street, to the best of my recollection is in the Brownsville
/East New York neighborhood, quite a few miles >from Boro Park.

Court Street is in downtown Brooklyn, much closer to Manhattan, and pretty
far >from the other two addresses.

If you have www access, I suggest you go to one of the map sites that
provide travel directions. If you enter any two addresses you can get maps
as well as a calculation of the distance.

Sorry, but I think this is one of those times when a subscriber could get
quicker and probably the most accurate information by using readily-
available resources at his/her own disposal rather than posting to the group.

Re: Laptops in archival research #general

CAnder9267@...
 

I have a laptop and love it, some archives allow you to bring one
to use, others would rather you did not, best to call ahead and
check, some archives do not have avalable electrical outlets so
the drawback there is you have to run on batteries, still I wouldn't
trade mine for anything, well almost! It's ditto with scanners, I
have a researcher friend who has a handheld scanner, and it's the
same with those some archives will let you use them, others won't,
mostly for copyright reasons.

Re: posting & correcting names to FTJP #general

Batya Olsen <batya@...>
 

Hello Sally et al,

If you are willing to edit your GEDCOM to remove the umlauts and
tildes you can resubmit the corrected version to FTJP. During the
submission process you are asked whether this is a new or updated
file and you simply answer accordingly.

I too have submitted my names to both JGFF and FTJP and I have a
6-line signature file of the names (with places) that I'm interested
in. That signature file goes out with *all* my email - not just to
JewishGen (unless I remove it.) I think there is potential value
to each of these avenues.

For the same reason, it is unreasonable to post the list here.

However, I put them all in FTJP through one gedcom file. Now

I've looked at Newark city directories for that time period in the Newark
Public Library (visit www.npl.org) as recently as a year ago. The library
has a room called the New Jersey Information Center. In addition to the
city directories, they have newspapers and state censuses (1895, 1905,
1915, etc.). If I remember correctly, Newark published city directories
on a yearly basis in the 1910 timeframe.
