Brick wall for Benjamin Max SHAPIRO #lithuania

m leonards <m_leonards@...>
 

Perhaps someone can offer some suggestions for researching my
great-grandfather, who is something of a cipher. He died in 1930, after
spending more than two years in a NYC nursing home after a stroke. None of
his grandchildren remembered him.

In American documents, he was Max SHAPIRO. On his death certificate, he was
Benjamin M. SHAPIRO, born in Russia, and parents&#8217; names unknown. His
tombstone says he was Binyamin son of Chaim. On the death certificate for
one of his daughters, her daughter said his name was Mordechai. So, perhaps
the Mordche (or something similar) became Max.

There is the usual inconsistency in year of birth, which ranges >from
1863-1870.

The only clue I have as to his place of origin is the 1920 census, where he
and his wife are shown as >from &#8220;Kovna, Russia&#8221;. Max SHAPIRO never became an
American citizen. His wife had siblings in the United States who left more
of a paper trail, so I&#8217;ve been able to determine that her KHELEM/CHELEM
family moved >from Pandelys (Zarasai uyezd) to Kupiskis (Ukmerge uyezd) in
1875. But no one remembers any relations on the SHAPIRO side of the family.

My great-grandparents spent the first half of the 1890s in England, probably
London. I don&#8217;t know whether they married in Lithuania or in England. The
couple does not appear on the 1891 English census available on Ancestry.com.

At least two children were born in England, but I have not yet looked for
their birth records (inconsistent years of birth on U.S. records).

According to census records, Max and Leah (Lena) SHAPIRO came to the United
States in 1895/1896. I cannot find them on the Ellis Island database, the
St. Albans lists or the passenger manifests for Philadelphia and Baltimore.
The Boston manifests are not indexed for this period, so I haven&#8217;t checked
them, yet. However, their place of residence would probably be London.

Upon arriving in the United States, they had a child in Newark, New Jersey
in 1898; in Chelsea, Massachusetts in 1900; and in Elizabeth, New Jersey in
1902. They moved around in New Jersey a great deal, and I haven&#8217;t found
them in the 1910 or 1915 censuses. By 1917 they were in Harlem, New York
City.

My SHAPIRO great-grandparents are both buried in Mt. Zion Cemetery in
Maspeth, but separately. Benjamin Max SHAPIRO is buried with the
"Independent Russian Hussars of America". I have been unable to find out
anything about this organization, but I suspect the family could only afford
one plot when he died, and bought whatever was available.

Does anyone have any suggestions for finding more information about Benjamin
Max SHAPIRO?

Thanks for your help,

First al all, if you are looking for ANY

Google. There is hardly a word or subject that you

For example, searching the words "Wahrmann utca" and
only Hungarian sites I found the page (in

Dear Listers,

Does anyone know something about the shtetl of JURE (or YURA or YURE
or JURA), approximately 75 mi west of Vilna? In particular I'm
looking to see where the records >from there might be located. The
RTR database doesn't get to a JURE or YURE, the ALD doesn't seem to
get there either using this town name (Daitch-Mokotoff soundex),
although somewhere else it may have been listed as part of Suwalk
gubernya. Its not listed under Jure (etc) under the Litvak shtetl
links either, nor does it seem to be listed in the Suwalk-Lomza SIG
list of towns or in the LitvakSIG shtetl list.

Please email me directly if you know something about JURE.

Thanks for your help,

Dear All,

My grandfather's family, WENGERKA, originally came
from two small towns near Lomza city. Very close to
the beginning of WWI (1913?), they moved >from this
area to Bialystock and >from Bialystock, the family
came to the USA. An older sister and brother came
first in 1913; my grandfather and his older sister in
1920; and the mother and two younger brothers in 1923.
Their father died ca 1917.

The documentation for this is a photocopy of the
original passport on which the older brother and
sister came to NYC in 1913 and the various manifests
that were found on the Ellis Island database.

On the manifest in which my grandfather and his sister
appear, there is also the address of their mother in
Bialystock: Sucha 4.

The names of the family:
parents: Icek Majer and Elke (SIWEK) WENGERKA
Children: Chaya Cipa, Huna, Liebe, Chaim Wolf, Zuniel
and Berel.

Shabbat Shalom,
