Fw: Looking for descendants of Meyer & Rachel Cohen #general

Len Levin <llevin@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I am writing in the hope that we may be able to
contact any descendants of Meyer & Rachel COHEN, who arrived >from England to
New York with their daughter Jenny (Jane) on board the "Suevia" in 1890.
They lived at that time in Gay St. near Washington Square. They had three
other children, whose names were Lewis, Kitty & Hannah, I believe.

Meyer was married to Rachel EJNCNER in Kolo in
Poland in 1862 and they went with his parents Wolf & Sarah Leah COHEN
(formerly CZERNIAK) to England , together with his siblings, Jacob,Rebecca, Emma
& possibly Isaac.

I am a greatgrandson of Jacob, who together with
his his father , sisters & families came to Australia in the late 1800s.

If anrone in the U.S. recognises this family,
their Australian cousins would be thrilled to hear >from them.

Re: Lodz Books of Residents #lodz #poland

Perhaps amongst this group there is a grant writer who would be willing to
attempt to obtain a grant for this project.

I know obtaining individual donations would be a very slow process but if
monies were collected perhaps an archivist could be hired on a "as money
becomes available" basis and work his/her way through the books

Indexing all the Lodz Books of Residents in Lodz would be a fantastic
project, but it is an enormous enormous task.

I have just talked to Stanley Diamond about it. He estimates that there
are
180 volumes, 1440 households, and perhaps 200,000 entries. It could only
be
done by professional archivists in Poland and would cost between $30,000
and
$50,000.

Hello Everyone

Maybe indexing all the Lodz Books of Residents with its 180
volumes, 1440
households and perhaps 200,000 entries is too daunting a task.

However, maybe LARG can set aside an online area for a
database. There,
people who already researched the Lodz Book of Residents could
donate their
information, and as other people obtain information in the
future, they too
can post their information so it can be shared with all Lodz
researchers.

A standardized form should be developed for the compiled
information so it
is easily searched and presented online. As a first thought,
there can be an
area where a copy of the original page >from the Book of
Residents can be
seen along and a part 2 with a place for the translation if
available.

The BODENGER Name? #austria-czech

Gary Yarus <gpyarus@...>
 

My maternal grandfather's surname was BODENGER.
As far as I know he emigrated to the US via New Orleans, although
I have found no "official" records indicating that. I know he raised his
family in New Orleans as did his siblings. Many are buried there.

Beginning with the 1910 Census records his country of origin is listed
as Austria.
Other family members found that hard to believing he came >from Poland.
I recently asked someone >from Poland if BODENGER sounded like a Polish name.
The response was maybe if he is Jewish.

The Austro Hungarian Empire was in existence when he emigrated to the
U.S., so it seems plausible to me he could have come >from anywhere with the
"empire", perhaps >from a German speaking area and the census taker therefore
recorded Austria.

Yet when I search the Internet and other genealogical sources, I find
many references to the name "Bodinger" and very few references to "Bodenger"
and except for a Bodenger family in the northwest, most of those I have found I
reconciled as family members.

So I guess my question is "Is Bodenger a common name in the German speaking
world or in the former Austro Hungarian Empire or was it derived >from something
else?

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

Better searches (no more 3-character requirement) using Steve Morse's One Step #belarus

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

GOOD NEWS!!! -- We can now search on a popular commercial genealogy
website without having to put in three characters for the name. Up until now, if you entered a
partial first name or a partial last name, you had to enter at least
three characters. But Steve Morse has written some new code that gets
around this limitation by searching on all combinations of the letters
that we left out.

For example, suppose you want to search for all people with first
initial J and last name Smith. Steve's software will automatically
search for all Smiths with first names starting with Jaa, then Jab, then

Jac, etc. up to Jzz. It might take as much as 5 minutes to get all the
results, but it's automatic -- you submit one search and Steve does 676
searches for you. And if you search for all Smiths with first name
starting with Ja, Steve can do that faster (less than ten seconds)
because he only has to do 26 searches in that case.

To use this feature, go to Steve's website at http://stevemorse.org and
select any of his search forms that use this site (e.g., any of his
passenger search forms other than Ellis Island, and his census
search-by-name form for any census year). Then enter less than three
characters for either the first or last name, and Steve's new software
will kick in, doing repeated searches on your behalf.

If you have any problems with it or questions about it or even comments
about it, please write to Steve directly rather than asking me.
Steve's address is at the top of his website.
