Re: Arrived at Port of New York from Montreal #general

Sally M. Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

In 1900 if your uncle went >from Montreal to New York in steerage, then he
went through Ellis Island. If the family had some money, and he went in
first or second class or something like that, then he didn't go to Ellis
Island! I guess the theory was that if you had some money, you could take
care of yourself.

It was still the Port of New York, however, and New York Passenger Lists
exist and are indexed for that time.

Of course, he could possibly have meant New York State not city and crossed
the Saint Lawrence into New York State somewhere else. Those records would
be in St. Albans, VT immigration lists.

Witl and Chaya #general

Jacob D. Goldstein <jake@...>
 

The Yiddish female name Witl (Wittel, Vitl, Vitte) apparently arose as a
substitute for Chaya. Both names derive >from "life"; Chaya >from the
Hebrew (Chai) and Witl >from the Latin (Vita). Can anyone shed some light
as to 1) when this usage became common and 2) why it occurred among
speakers of Germanic languages? If the name can be traced back to the
Sephardic exodus >from Spain, what were its Spanish roots?

I know that could be impossible to answer but may be some one can help me?
Alien Registration Cards (also known as "green" cards) were/are issued by
the INS to those who had been granted legal residency in the US. The cards
were/are supposed to be carried at all times by resident aliens to prove
their legal status in the US. The INS would not keep a copy of the card
but their records would indicate that such a card was issued.

Where is Czaiczelic? #general

Daniel S. Katz <dsk@...>
 

Is anyone familiar with the town of Czaiczelic? It's listed
in a 1920 passenger manifest as being in Poland, but everything
in that manifest that is in Ukraine and Russia is also listed
as being in Poland, perhaps because the US didn't recognize the
Russia government at that time?

Thanks,

ROSENBERG realtives in ViewMate Photo #general

djweinman <djweinman@...>
 

Searching for ROSENBERG family and friends that escaped together from
Ukraine to Romania in September 1920. Photo of these 18 people has been
posted at: www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview117.html#vm377. They had lived
in 3 small towns called Lipovetz, Shivitovka, and Tsybulev located in
Ukraine southwest of Vinnitsa. After escaping, the group stayed in Europe
for a few months then came to USA via Antwerp, Belgium. Harry, Kayla,
Samuel and David ROSENBERG and Fannie and Oscar KAPLAN sailed on
S.S.Zeeland to New York. They are my relatives. Searching for others in
group. Names may include: FISHEL, FISHMAN, Saul and Annie SHAPIRO.
Settled in New York and Pittsburgh in USA.

Does this info sound familiar or does the photo look like one that you
have seen.

Benzingerode,Germany #general

Saxe, Allen <ASAXE@...>
 

Need Information

I am researching the Bensman family. The family lived at least >from the
1800's in Lepel,Belarus. It has been suggested that the family may have
lived in an earlier period in Benzingerode,Germany.

The town exists on maps of Germany,but I have not been able to locate any
information on its history.

I would appreciate any help.

Re: Mutel and Shaver #general

Sally M. Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

Mutel is Motel-one of the guys in Fiddler on the Roof was Motel. In English
Morris or Morton, my cousin was Morton. Shaver is more difficult and
depend on where the family was from. Chava would be my guess, but it's
not really close.

Any English name can be used; it depends on what someone wants. So Mutel
might have called himself George if he wanted to.

Town of Suczawa #general

Mimi Katz <geveretk@...>
 

I've tried using the Shtetl Finder with no success. I'm looking for a town
that was called Suczawa, Ostrerreich in 1891. I suspect that it was
actually a part of Bohemia at that time. Has anyone heard of it?
