Hello All,

These are 2 documents for 2 different Wolf Habers, both in chart form with
parts 1 & 2. The first 2 (VM4060, VM4062) are a birth and the 2nd 2

not my document but still has my name and email address. I've already
emailed viewmate about this.

For the first time in the history of an international conference
on Jewish genealogy, participants will finally have the opportunity
to explore the genealogy of Jews in Eretz Israel at the 24th Annual
IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy in Jerusalem in
July, through "Ask the Experts" program with Shmuel Shamir, a 16th
generation Jerusalemite and one of the co-founders of the Israel
Genealogical Society.

Shmuel Shamir has a unique background that lends itself to being
such an expert: Aside >from belonging to an ancient Jerusalem family,
Mr. Shamir has been researching the roots of Jerusalem families of
antiquity for many years and has written numerous articles in a
variety of journals and periodicals. As an Attorney and notary,
he has researched and ferreted out documents >from various Israeli
archives, using them to build family trees and to prove ownership
of property, especially in the Old City of Jerusalem.

The opportunity of consulting with Mr. Shamir as an Expert is unique
and not to be missed!

Subject: My elusive Cohen's
From: "Lois Kaufman" <lois@seagull-solutions.co.uk>
Date: Wed, 5 May 2004 15:05:25 +0100
X-Message-Number: 1

My g-grandmother, Alice Cohen/Myers, died in 1891 at the age of 36. Her
mother, Alice Moses/Cohen also died an early death, at the age of 32,
three
weeks after giving birth to her first and only child, my g-grandmother,
who
was named after her. As a reult, I have very little information about my
Cohen family, and even less about my Moses family.

I do know that Alice Cohen Junior's father was Jacob Cohen and >from the
various censuses I have been able to piece together the names of some of
the
Cohen family members, however, I have never been able to find any
descendents of any of Jacob's siblings, or make a connection with other
Cohen families.

The details that I have are as follows - maybe they sound familiar?

Moses Cohen, born Poland in about 1871. Lived 1841 - 1852 at 21 Ebenezer
Square, Aldgate (my g-g-g-grandfather)
Wife Fanny, born London 1876.

They had the following children (that I know of):

Yehuda Leib/Lewis, born 1815 in Aldgate

Jacob (my g-g-grandfather - sometimes went by the name John), born 1819
(date according to 1851 census). It is likely that the following is the
record of his brit mila, which shows that the family were already living
in
Ebenezer Square at this time: Entry number 741 >from Myer Solomon's
Circumcision Register: On Thursday 11 Menahem '578, I circumcised Jacob
ben
Moses HaCohen (Ebenezer Square, 13 Aug 1818). Married 1852 at the New
Synagogue Alice Moses. After her death, remarried to Maria, born 1823 in
Brighton.

Esther (born 1826)

Mary (also born 1826)

Martha (born 1831)

Leah (born 1834)

Are any of these names familiar to anyone?

Regards, Lois Kaufman

In order to fit my decription of what is contained in the files listed above I
attempted to abbreviate it in an extreme manner and failed to satisfy the space
requiremnts of this message board and to be intelligible to the average viewer.

At the risk of making my personal interests over the concerns of a wide readership
I will hazard an estimate that I have uncovered a gold mine for those who will
make the trip to West 16th St in NYC to view what I so briefly have described.

The souvenir journals of landsmanshaften are rich in names, pictures and history.
The advertisements alone are worth the effort. These journals span a time frame
from the thirties to the fifties. They contain addresses in some journals. In
memoriam pages list the names of the dead.
To get an idea of what are in boxes 3&4 go to
www.jewishgen.org/databases/ajhav.htm
I cannot repeat the experience I had with boxes one and two where I personally
forwarded my descriptions to your e-mail addresses at your request. I ask that
some member put my description temporarily on their website and refer the

Re: Definition of variants of the word dicing #unitedkingdom

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

As posted in an April 27 message, I'm writing an article about my family's
early years in Birmingham, England (and that of the mainly Ashkenazi Jews),
from the 1870's to the turn of the 20th century up to the 1920's. In an
audio tape a niece in B'ham sent me, my late father mentioned working for
"Dicer King[Dicerking?]," a company that did metal casting. I'm aware that
dicing refers to moulds [molds], but am perplexed by the other reference
(dicerking). I realize this may have been the company's proper name or
simply a slip of the tongue.

Can anyone enlighten me?

Am still eager to hear >from anyone who'd like to share information about
their "Jewish tailor" immigrant ancestors in Birmingham, especially any who
lived in the back-to-back housing, attended Singers Hill shul, or the
Hebrew School in Birmingham.

I have just uploaded images of unknown members of my family to my web site. The
first is of two children, which I think was taken in England (it has English
postcard text on the back - no message, unfortunately!). The second is a man, who
I believe to be one of the SKOWRONEKs.This time it is half a postcard, the back
of which reveals (I believe) that it was posted in Warsaw to the home of a
SKOWRONEK family member in Warsaw in November 1902.
The images can be found at:
