I am doing research on the name SMITH. I know that this name is the most
common name in the USA and Great Britain. Many Jewish immigrants took this name
when arriving in England and the USA.

My line of SMITH'S came >from Russia in 1889/1890. First to Massachusetts,
Minnesota and Illinois. If there is anyone else that is researching
SMITH's, I would be interested in sharing info on our families.

searching for STEMPLER, Cortkow #galicia

Alison Blackman Dunham for The Advice Sisters <advicesisters@...>
 

I am researching my grandmother Tillie (Taube) Stempler and was told
that she had a sister, Gussie STEMPLER, who preceded her to New York
which meant she arrived prior to 1905. I found a record through the
Ellis Island Web Site for a Gemina STEMPLER who came >from Cortkow on
the Phonicia >from Hamburg on November 10, 1901 . She was 17.

I think this MIGHT be my grandmother's sister, but I can't tell if
Gemina would be "Gussie" in English. is it?

Additionally, I do not know where Cortkow is or if this is spelled correctly. My
grandmother's geographic location was listed on her record as ZLOCZOW.
Does anyone > know if these two towns are the same, close together or related in any way?

A sucess story with the new updates of the Romanian database. #romania

Alan Tapper <sabaalan@...>
 

I know that Warren Blatt had recently been given an award but I would like
to thank him and all the others who made these updates to the Romanian
Database possible.

I did not expect to find anything when I typed in my last name and did a
search but was very surprised to seen my great aunt's birth in 1890 recorded
in the Kishinev birth records. I not only got her date of birth right but
I received information about two generations further back as they listed the
fathers and grandfathers on both sides of the family.

I also found that the last name was spelled slightly different at that time.
The Yiddish spelling was the same but the pronunciation was different. The
name was TEPER not TAPPER.

STEINBERG #lithuania

Hamilton, Lawrence R. <LHamilton@...>
 

It is quite likely that Samuel STEINBERG's hometown was LUDWINOWO
(modern Liudvinavas), a town located 5.8 miles due south of MARIJAMPOLE
and 7.4 miles south of KALVARIYA. I have seen many references to
LUDWINOWO residents in the MARIJAMPOLE vital records but wonder whether
there might also be some in the KALVARIYA records (which unfortunately
are not extant).

Samuel STEINBERG left Hamburg on 11 February 1
874, passenger # 62, a kaufman [merchant], >from "Litvinowo." He arrived
in the US, and settled in Indiana.

I am most eager to find out more about his life in the home country, but
find no entries in the JGFF or any in the ALD which seem useful. I
have obtained all the STEINBERG certificates >from Marijampole, where his
daughter later married, but nothing seems to link in yet.

Any suggestions?

Kind regards

I would have thought that the visa to enter Argentina would have been issued
