Romanian Shul - St. Louis City, Missouri #general

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Does anyone have information of the perhaps whereabouts of a Romanian shul
that might have existed in St. Louis City, St. Louis in the early 1900's?

Are there records of a Romanian congregation in the area - then and now?

Was there a specific cemetery that might have had a Romanian section?

Any information gratefully appreciated.

Canadian passenger list #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

Thanks to Valerie Fox, I have in hand a copy of the 1904 passenger
passenger list citing my grandfather's ocean crossing, together with his
mother and one sister and brother.

The sailing was >from "Liverpool and Moville" to "Montreal and Quebec" and
their ultimate destination was Pittsburg (sic) PA, where the rest of the
family had gone previously.

For now I am ignoring the question of which ports of departure and arrival
were relevant for my family.

Above a group of passengers which includes my family is the
label "Steerage USA." The column "Number of Railway Order" is empty for
my family, but is filled in for some of the other passengers in their
group.
I am trying to understand if that tells me anything about how they
proceeded to Pittsburgh.

They do not appear in lists of crossings at St Albans, nor are they to be
found entering the US at Ellis Island or Baltimore. Could they have
crossed over in Buffalo or Erie? How do I proceed >from here?

This partucular quest is not critical because I don't expect it will tell
me any more than the details of the journey itself, but since we have
gotten this far, I'd like to see if we can complete the picture.

STONE or ZDUN in Suwalki #general

Evanwm25@...
 

Dear Genners:

I am looking for information which may help me connect my STONE family
from Suwalki to that of a family there with a similar sounding name.
My cousins swear that the name of the family in Europe was STONE, but I am
thinking they never saw the name spelled in Europe, and while they may
have the name pronounced correctly, they could be terribly off with the
spelling.

I know that there was a ZDUN or ZDON family living in Suwalki in the
1800s, but am looking for information on whether that family came to the
USA. I am specifically looking for persons with the given names of Frank
and Nellie.
Of course these are the anglicized names given on the death certificate of
their daughter, Anna Dora Stone (Smorgonski) Wolfson (1849? Suwalki?? -
1949 Pittsburgh, PA). There names were probably Fischel or Froim and
Nechama, but I have no proof of this, only >from what the names Frank and
Nellie were often derived.

Many thanks,

STONE and KLITMAN of Newark, NJ #general

Evanwm25@...
 

Dear Genners:

I am looking for any information on Sam STONE, >from Suwalki, son of
Baruch?, who came to Newark, NJ in 1912, single, aged 30 (or 38). He was
a tailor. He was travelling to brother-in-law, S. KLITMAN, at 25 Clifton
(?) St., Newark, NJ. Sam stood 5'3" and had brown hair and grey eyes.

The grey eyes are a family trait in the STONE family for which I am
searching.

Thanks,

Herzberg and Feitelberg #latvia

Cathlen Ross <cathlen@...>
 

Hello,
I am sending this again because of an error in the first mailing.

I am looking for information re: The Herzberg and Feitelberg families of

Courland in Latvia. Dr. Samuel Aberham Herzberg died in Courland around
1886, this is just an estimated guess. His wife Cecilia Hinda Feitelberg
came to the U.S. with her daughter Dena Leah Herzberg (4-9-1878 through
11-16-1973) and Cecilia's brother Bernard Feitelberg around 1888. I have
been told that some family did stay in Latvia. During the holocaust
they were led to a lake and drowned.
For Cecilia I also have a name of Zipora. I am not sure if that is part
of her name or her Mothers name or her Fathers.

Any help would be great.
Thank you yet again,
Cathlen

Canadian Immigration/St. Alban's List Question #general

Shawn Weil <weil.17@...>
 

Hello friends-

My grandmother's family emigrated >from Canada to the US between 1927 and
1929. First my ggrandfather (Abram BROITMAN) in Nov 1927, then my
ggrandmother with two children in Dec 1927, then my grandaunt, and finally
my granduncle in 1929. Interested in finding their records in the St.
Alban's list records, I requested and received the proper roll for their
soundex (B635) within the series that should have contained the dates of
their passage (i.e., the 1924-1951 index). To my disappointment, I could
not find any record of them there.

I have their Russian passports, and they state pretty clearly that the
name was "BROITMAN." Even better, I have the Certificate of Arrival
(which came with their naturalization papers) for most of the family,
which lists both the port of entry (Niagara Falls and Buffolo, NY) and the
dates of their arrival. The date on the Certificate of Arrival matches
the date written on one of the passports, further bolstering my opinion
that the dates on the Certificate were valid.

So, I have two questions >from the more experienced members of the
JewishGen community:

1) Has anyone else had trouble with the St. Alban's soundex index? Is it
complete? It seems odd to me that all of my family's records would be
missing, since they did not pass through the border on the same day.
2) Is the information that I have sufficient to look up their records by
date, or is their something that I would need to find in the soundex? I
have their names, the date of their crossings, the method of travel, and
the border location.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance-

Re: French naturalizations #general

I am sorry to disagree with Daniel regarding a few points:

The "Centre des Archives Contemporaines" holds only the naturalization
files between 1931 and 1975. In principle they request that you do the
consultation on site.

Until 1930 the files are held in the Caran, which is currently
(temporarily housed in a former reading room of the Bibliotheque
Nationale, 58 rue de Richelieu (it is closed until August 25).

"Les Chercheurs d'Ancetres" have no information on the content of the
files: there you can only order a CDROM which gives the references of the
naturalizations enacted between 1900 and 1950.
