Success with a Translation #poland

MAGICWIES@...
 

For a great number of years I had been trying, unsuccessfully, to have a
letter written in Yiddish translated. No one had been able to even
translate it a little so that I would know who it was sent to and who
wrote it. I posted the letter on ViewMate and received a few suggestions.
Fortunately, Beate S. saw the request and supplied the first and only
complete and thorough translation. I also would like to take this
opportunity to publicly thank her, and the others who also responded.
Their assistance was invaluable in this project.

Does anyone know the derivation of the surname of Ipp? I was helping a
family member to research their ancestors >from Slobodka, and they asked
me if I could find out where the name came from. Thanks.

Volatile Family Name Use in 18th Century Hamburg... Why? #germany

Alan Ehrlich
 

Hello,

I've encountered a puzzling thing regarding my DELLEVIE ancestors, and would
appreciate any explanation you might offer.

Prior to moving to Hamburg in the mid 18th century, the family lived in
Rendsburg for a period of two or three generations.Upon their arrival in
Hamburg, on those occasions where they used a civil (family) name, it's
believed they were called RENDSBURG.

After that, public records show that by latest 1781 they began exclusively
going by the family name DELLEVIE in most if not all areas of their lives,
since >from this date onward DELLEVIE appears in all wedding and birth
entries, as well as in the 1st edition of the Hamburg Address Book (idem
subsequent editions), etc. Additionally, they were well known
Jewelers/silversmiths; and I've quite often come upon 18th century examples
of their production at Christie's, Sotheby's or in other auction houses.
ALWAYS signed DELLEVIE.

HOWEVER, up until circa 1820, when one of the family members died, the
Hamburg death records "very unsystematically" show the family name as either
DELLEVIE, LEVY or RENDSBURG. BUT the family name inscribed on all the
tombstones (Jewish cemeteries in Altona and Grindel) always exclusively is
RENDSBURG.

I realize that the name DELLEVIE only was officially "officialized" in 1810.
But why all the volatility in the name they used. and why always RENDSBURG
on their headstones? Friendly regards,

Alan Ehrlich, Geneva Switzerland alan.ehrlich@...

Immigrants turned away at Ellis Island #ukraine

A. E. Jordan
 

If the child in question boarded the ship he would be on the manifest.
Check the Ellis Island manifest and see what it shows for the family. If
they were detained they should be on the back of the list in another section
of people who were detained. It should show how long and for what reason
they were detained.
If the child died during the crossing I believe it would also be noted on
the manifest.

If you want to double check, the Holland-America lists >from Rotterdam do
exist. I think you can get them >from a Family History Center. If you know
the arrival date of the ship in New York work backwards about 10 days for
the departure >from Rotterdam. Then search that list. The names maybe
slightly different but you should have no problem finding the family on the
departure list >from Rotterdam. I have never heard of a difference between the
two lists but you can check to be sure.

If the child is not on either of the lists they never boarded the ship,
never crossed the ocean and were not sent back >from Ellis Island. People
were sent back all the time for medical reasons but they are on the manifests
and often if it was a child a parent went back as well because they felt
they could not leave the young child alone.
