Boston HIAS Records from LDS - Partial #general

Dream Builder <dreambuilder@...>
 

I am working on transcribing the partial HIAS records I have photographed
from the LDS records.
The only records I have involving Boston are:

ZIM, Isaac male 22 >from Russia Ship Westernland 19 AUG 1907 to Boston, MA
ZALUTSKY, Shoshe female 28 >from Russia Ship Haverford 05 NOV 1907 to
Boston, MA
ZAG?D, Galki female 19 >from ? Ship Haverford 17 FEB 1908 to Boston, MA

It's fairly easy to obtain LDS records if you are near a FHC. I had to send
twice to obtain the one I was looking for, though, because the number was
incorrect. It took an extra week, but they only charged me once. The staff
at the FHC was very helpful.

The LDS has films for HIAS. I know that they have them for NY and
Philadelphia, there may be some for Boston as well. You can check online
at http://www.familysearch.org

Hope that this helps.

NYC Truck Accidents #general

Dream Builder <dreambuilder@...>
 

Apparently, New York City truck drivers were dangerous -

My paternal great-grandmother Sarah THURLIN / TURCHIN (FRIEDMAN) was killed
about 1925 when she was hit by truck that left the road. She was on the
sidewalk on a Friday afternoon giving challahs to the poor when she was
struck and killed. Or so the story goes . . .

Family lore says that the child who passed away before his time was run
over in the streets of the Lower East Side by a beer wagon, while my
grandfather was supposed to be supervising. However, my grandfather was
the youngest of the 8 siblings that survived, and he wouldn't have been
older than 3 years old himself. I doubt the family story, and would like
corroboration in documentation.

Dear Genners,

As many of you will be visiting London cemeteries before Rosh Hashana
I wonder if someone could look-up names on certain tombstones in the
Rainham Cemetery, East Ham Cemetery,and Edmonton Cemetery. I have the
exact plots and nos etc.

Please reply to me personally.

Thank you for your time.

Shana Tova to all.

Has anyone ever heard of a town called called Lutowishg I have no idea
where this is but it appears as the place of residence of the GRUMER part
of my family whose ethnicity appears to be Russian according to
the Ellis Island Data Base . Any help with this would be greatly
appreciated.
Sincerly Yours

Re Levy MATTHIAS or Herrmann HEYMANN #general

Pam G <pgosl@...>
 

Hello,

This is a longshot but wondering if anyone on this list is connected to
either of the names above, or has any knowledge of these people from
Hamburg. They signed my g-grandmother's marriage certificate in the 1880's
as witnesses (bride's name was Adele Auguste Judell who married Louis
Leffmann). Any information about either this particular HEYMANN or
MATTHIAS family would help me to uncover some mysteries surrounding my
family. The address on the certificate is handwritten, difficult to
decipher, possibly Loghienstrasse 34(?).

Thanks so much for any possible leads. Please respond privately.

Sincerely,

DODELL to SIEGEL #general

Barbara S Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

I am researching the DODELL family. I am seeking the descendants of a son
of a Herschel Lieb DODEL.

Herschel Lieb DODEL was born in 1859 in Toporow, Poland, and died in 1917.
Herschel and his wife, Marjem Sura PFEFFER, had 15 children:

1. Berisch b. 1880 (called Benjamin in the US)
2. David Zmarl b. 1882
3, Chaja b. 1887
4. Rosie b. 1888
5. Basia b.1889
6. Nachman b. 1891
7. Becky b. 1892
8. Jenny b. 1894
9. Ruchel b.1897
10. Szulom b. 1899
11. Chaim b. 1901 (Hyman in the US
12. Cine b. 1904 (Sylvia in US)
13. Samuel b. 1907
14. Goldie b. 1909
15. Schmeil Mutria "Harry" SIEGEL b. 1884

# 1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 11, 13 came to the US.
# 2, 3, 9, 10 were killed in the Holocaust.
# 6, 14 died in infancy in Toporow.
# 12, fate unknown.

# 15. Schmeil Mutria b. 1884, went to England, took the surname
SIEGEL, and may have been known as "Harry" SIEGEL in England.

Some family members said that he had 5 children, two of whom might have
been named Annie and Harry, others say he never married.

He may have been a comedian, may have lived in Leeds.

Does this strike a chord with anyone?

Steve Gabai <sgabai@...>
 

I'm interested in Mary/Miriam BINDER, most likely >from Bialystok. She was
born around 1863 and married Sol CHASAN around 1880.

They had two children in Europe and immigrated to the US in the early
1890s. They settled in Brooklyn where they had two more children.

Mary died around 1905 and Sol went on to marry two more times.
