Searching for Old German Newspaper in New York - Der Reporter #germany

Jerry Zeisler <jzeisler@...>
 

Gersig,
I am looking for a German-language newspaper published in New York City in
at least 1888 by Bernhard KOENIG called "Der Reporter." Does anyone know
where I might be able to locate an archive of the paper? An Internet search
comes up empty. Thank you.

I think you might mean Rockaway Park (or Beach). Try this link:

In the 1920s there existed in New York an institution called "Rockaway Brack

Here are my questions: (1) what is "GTR"?
(2) what documents/evidence might have been presented/furnished to prove entry?
(3) although it states there was no actual record of entry, are there any other
places I might find more information about this individual?

trying to locate a town in Slovakia/Poland #general

Anita Levine <anita.levine@...>
 

Hello all,
Trying to find the town Prezsesvodov, Poland. What else would it be called? My
paternal great-grandfather, Jakub (Yaacov) DONNER was born there around 1879.
Curiously, he and his 5 children lived in Stropkov, Slovakia. But according to
records he was a resident of Prezsesvodov. Could these be the same towns?

Thank you!
Anita

As far as I know, "Menie" is a short name for Hebrew "Menachem" wich
means "comforter".

<Does anyone know if this is an abbreviation? if yes, for what? male/female?

LAUER in Indiana #usa

Rachel Unkefer <runkefer@...>
 

I am trying to connect my husband's great-great-great grandmother,
Hannah LAUER >from Gehaus (Thuringia) with three men I believe to be
the sons of her brother in Ohio and Indiana in the 1860s-1880s. If
anyone has any information about any of these families, please get in
touch with me. I would like to exchange information.

Levi, born 18 December 1827, found in 1860 census in Cincinnati, Ohio,
later had a clothing store in Plymouth, Marshall County, Indiana (1861?)
Meyer, born ca 1834, found in 1860 census in Cincinnati, Ohio, later
had a clothing store in Plymouth, Marshall County, Indiana (1861?)
Joseph, born 5 November 1835, found in 1880 census in Rochester,
Fulton County, Indiana (about 23 miles south of Plymouth), also owned
a clothing store

In the census, all three report being >from "Saxony", which is correct
for that time period.

BLUM family in New York City #usa

dbing <dbing@...>
 

Dear Early American SIGers:

I am researching the following families: BING, BLUM, SCHWARZ, COHN, whose
members settled in NYC in the mid-19th century. I have found much about the
European origins of the BING and SCHWARZ families.

My immediate goal is to find the birthplace of my great grandfather Leopold
BLUM. I know he was born somewhere in the Duchy of Baden. I have the
following information about the BLUM family:

Leopold BLUM was born January 24, 1845. His parents were Bernhard and Clara
BLUM (maiden name also BLUM). Leopold arrived in New York on March 1, 1864.
According to the 1870 US Census, Leopold was a wholesale dealer in wine with
an estate valued at $1000. He lived with Charlotte and Arnold Blum whose ages
were 20 and 16 respectively. They all came >from Baden. I assume that
Charlotte and Arnold were siblings of Leopold.

Leopold was married for the first and only time on December 14, 1873. He
married Caroline (Carrie) SCHWARZ, daughter of Daniel and Henrietta (Jette).
Leopold BLUM had the following children: Clara (married Leo BING), Adelaide
(married William LOEWENTHAL), Alfred, Henry, Helena.

I also know >from the New York City Business Directories that Leopold joined
with members of another BLUM family who were aleady in the wine & liquor
import business in lower Manhattan. According to the 1860 US Census, this
family consisted of the following members: Arnold (b. 1814), Rosa (b. 1816),
Leo (b. 1842), Albert (b. 1844), Ludwig (b. 1847), and Justine (b. 1848). All
members of this family were also born in the Duchy of Baden.

I would appreciate any suggestions regarding how I might determine the
specific birthplace of Leopold BLUM. Sincerely,

Daniel Bing, Knoxville, TN, USA

INTRO - researching SIMON and MENDELSOHN families from Prussia to Erie, Penna. #germany

R. R. Keefer <rr.keefer@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for about one
month. I consider myself to be definitely a huge-time beginner in doing
*** German Jewish *** Genealogy research. I live in Chautauqua in Upstate
New York, USA. My native language is English. I consider myself pretty
advanced in using a computer. My experience in using the Internet is extensive.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of all my
grandparents, all of my great grandparents and 11 of my great great
grandparents.

My primary research goals now are to find out the details surrounding the
emigration of the SIMON, MENDELSOHN, GLASSMAN, etc. families to N. America,
where exactly they were living in 'Germany' and 'Prussia', reasons for
leaving and their subsequent lives in the USA.

The family names and towns that I am researching are:

SIMON - family folklore = family moved >from Germany to Louisiana
(Shrevesport's Port vicinity) early 1800's, moved to Erie, Penna just before
the Civil War.
SIMON - according to naturalization records, Prussia to USA to Erie,
Penna. circa 1854, tailors/clothiers
MENDELSOHN - Morowda [sic], Prussia to USA to Erie, mid-1800s. Sarah or Miriam
MENDELSOHN and Samuel or Solomon MENDELSOHN, tailors/clothiers.
