Who can help me find actual relative in England? #general

Herut Shlomoff <heruts@...>
 

Dear friends, especially our British Jenners,

Since 1980 we lost contact with a relative in England. We already tried
many sources to find her - but not luck.
I would mostly appreciate your help.

Please contact me privately and I will give you the full details:
heruts@netvision.net.il

Many thanks,
Herut Shlomoff, Israel

Dear Group;
I have a grandfather >from Lomza.I know the (very) approximate year he was
born. I found his name I always knew him by might not have even been his
family name.(He changed it after coming to the states.)The way the Polish
Archives works, would this be enough information?
Thank you very much,
David Edelman.
As unlikely as it sounds, I found my own grandparents with no more
than you know about yours, or rather they were found by an extremely
knowledgable user who recognized the combination of their given names
when I was an utter newbie; when the smoke had cleared away, the tale
was even posted as a success story on this forum. I knew only given
names for both grandparents; I had a mistaken idea of his original
surname and no notion of hers; I didn't know what town they were from,
only Lomza Gubernia (and you probably don't know either whether your
grandfather meant he was >from Lomza town or Lomza Gubernia any more
than I did).

With what you know, unless your grandfather had a given name bordering
on the unique, you don't have anything to search archives with (could
you find someone in any US vital statistics office with as little to
go on?). But if you post here whatever you know about his
pre-imigration life, you just may luck out as I did, and someone may
recognize some bit of identifying information.

Depending when he changed his name and where he was when he did it,
you might try finding him in the appropriate Polk's City Directory by
the name you know, and work backward until the name disappears to be
replaced by his earlier name. If, on the other hand, he changed it
soon after entry into the US, you probably won't find it. Others may
have other suggestions in the same spirit.

looking for Martin ABRAMS in CA #general

Howard Zakai
 

Genners,

This may be a lost cause, but I am looking for my mom's 1st cousin
Martin ABRAMS, born abt. 1936 in NY, and moved with parents Alex & Anna
ABRAMS in the early to mid-1940s to Gardena, CA. Alex, my grandfather's
older brother died in 1955 and was cremated. I do not know if wife Anna is
still living. There are three listings for Martin Abrams in California,
none of which is my cousin. There are about 50 listings of the same name
nationwide.
My last effort is trying the LA Recorder to see about obtaining records
for Anna Abrams. There are 2 on the CA Death records website by that name.

Any help is welcomed. Thank you in advance.

Searching for names: Sirkow and Neckowitz(or Natkovitch) and Dumas #general

Sandie SG <sandiesg@...>
 

Hello!
I'm looking for anyone who has these surnames or anyone who might know of
them. I posted to a geneaology group recently and a man whose grandmother's
surname was Sirkowa wrote to me and asked me if we might be related. Could
this be the Russian feminine version of Sirkow? My family came >from the
Ukraine, my grandfather >from a little town that was called Nikolaev, I
believe it's still called that and my grandfather came >from Kiev.

Also, is there a possibility that the name of Dumas could be a
Russian/Jewish name? That is the surname of my great-grandmother >from
Nikolaev in the Ukraine. Her name was Tamara Dumas, but everyone apparently
called her Mary. There is a story in my family that the Dumas comes >from
French relatives, but we don't know that for sure at all.

If anyone could give me any information on any of this, I'd much appreciate
it. You can email me privately, at sandiesg@aol.com or post it here. I
check this board quite often.

Take care and thank you all!

Great Synagogue, London - Birth and Death Records - LEVY and PHILLIPS #general

Laurence Harris <laurence_harris@...>
 

I am currently researching my wife's LEVY and PHILLIPS families
and have found a number of relevant marriages in the Great
Synagogue (London) records (thanks to the Shire/Gent book and
other helpful genealogists).

I would now like to find out if there are any relevant family
births and deaths recorded in the Great Synagogue Records
(1791-1877) [I know there is at least one and, hopefully, there
are likely to be lots more].

One approach would be to systematically go through the LDS/Mormon
microfilms listed below. However, before I contemplate starting
with this approach, which I know will take considerable time and
effort, I was wondering if anyone has or is currently
searching/transcribing/indexing these records (either for all
surnames, or specifically for LEVY or PHILLIPS surnames). I keen
not to duplicate work that has already been done.

Alternatively, if there is sufficient interest, perhaps a group
of us might be interested in transcribing/indexing these Great
Synagogue records for all surnames. Anyone interested?

Hello
I would like to be in touch with the Zabludov Rebbe. I understand he is
in Jerusalem in an area called Maslot Daphna. I would be interested in
knowing how long his families were rabbis in Zabludow.
My father was born in Zabludow and he was part of the Lipshitz family.
My husband George Sackheim also had a rabbi in Zabludow many years ago.
I would be interested in hearing >from any one who can tell me more about
the town of Zabludow. I know it is a very old town about 10 miles >from
Bialystok.
Thank you for any help you can offer.
