Passports #general

Errol Schneegurt
 

I would like to know what a person would need to supply to the controlling
authorities in the Eastern European countries and Russia in order to get
an approved passport before 1920. I am assuming that at minimum some
record of birth would have been needed.
I know that when my father came here in 1927 he had to answer verbal
questions asked by a person at the American Embassy in Lviv. One of the
questions was "how many legs does an American chicken have"?

Ship Records #general

Errol Schneegurt
 

I have a question that the answer seems obvious.
On the ship manifests there are columns that relates to the persons
ability to read and write. The notations on the ones that I am looking at
are overwhelming yes to both questions. I would have to assume that they
are referring to the persons native language and maybe Yiddish in the case
of a Jewish person.

My greatgrandparents and family attended the Beth Hasefer /Federation

If anyone can make a suggestion to find out more about them I will be most
grateful. Is there somewhere where records of membership at that Shul can
be found? Does the Shul exist today? >



The West End does not mean Middlesex Street which is in the East End.
There was a thriving Jewish community in the Soho area of London, postcode
W1.
There is a book about it, by Gerry Black, Living Up West, which may mention
the family.

Ther shul does not appear to exist now.

Help identifying shtetl near Warsaw #general

Victoria Reed <victoriajreed@...>
 

Genners:

I am researching my friend's family who emigrated >from Warsaw between 1904
and 1922. On the EIDB, in two separate ships, I have found two members of
the same family identify their birth town as "Miescano" or "Miezeano".

It is possible that another branch of this family was >from "Klasztorek"
(Kalish Turek), 126 miles northwest of Warsaw.

Does anyone out there have any good ideas about what shtetl this might have
been? We are also open to the idea that the ancestral town might have been
in another part of Poland.

Thank you!

Genners,

Thanks to the advice >from recent posters (Rachelle Berliner & Maria Torres)
I decided to likewise think "out of the box" with regard to my elusive ggf,
Pinchas Mendelstein. First I tried "Mendel Pincus" with no success, then I
opted for something even more radical, "Mendel Shteen". I entered my data
"first name starts with M", "last name sounds like Shteen" using Steve
Morse's Jewish search page. I came up with 29 males arriving between
1900-1905. When I checked the manifest of Mendel Shtein, I discovered that
he was male, married, Russian, Hebrew, and a baker. The stated age didn't
fit, but I think the baker identification is pretty conclusive along with
the other corroborating data.

Could someone check the manifest and advise me as to the town of last
residence and his ultimate destination? London is listed on the passenger
record, but I made out "Bendzin" on the manifest. Notice that the next
passenger, Israel Rogenblat, was also listed as a baker, heading for the
same destination, and indicated London as his last residence.

Please reply to me privately. Thanks.

Rav Chaim of Olkusz #rabbinic

Gilbert Hendlisz <gilbert.hendlisz@...>
 

Dear Rav Siggers,

I found many interesting elements about my ancestors in Krakow
during the 17th century, in a book called "Divrie Chefetz" by
Wettstein. There is mention of a Rav Yehuda Leib of Olkusz (also
called Rav Leib HENDLES) and his two sons. The older one, Rabbi
Gavriel, became very notorious under the name of Rav Gavriel
ESHKELES, so did Rav Gavriel's son, Rav Issachar Berish ESHKELES.

The author mentions also the second son of Rav Yehuda Leib, Rabbi
Chaim as a "gaon " and a "maggid". I forgot to mention that his
father, R' Yehuda Leib HENDLES was the son of Rav Chaim of Konin,
who was the son of R'Sinai, who was the older brother of the MaHaRal
of Prag.

Does anyone know anything about this R'Chaim and his descendants?

Thanks for your help.
