Hello Elisabeth,

That is indeed sad news. I met him only once -- at the Museum of Danish
Resistance -- but have corresponded with him because he knew my family
personally. Yes, we shall miss him. Can you write to me privately with
his home address so I can write a note to his family?

It is with great sorrow that I must inform you that Leif Rosenstock
has died. Many subscribers to this list knows Leif for his incredible
willinghess to help whenever someone asked for it. He often went to
the archives to solve problems or find information for other
Scandinavia-
genners until illness prevented it.

Leif was an historian, worked many years as a teacher at a college and
after his retirement he was photo-archivist and The Museum of Danish
Resistance 1940-1945. During all the years he has worked on various
genealogies - most recently the Cantor-genealogy based on his diligent
research in the archives. The Cantor-genealogy has not been printed
but given to the descendants.

Leif has supported Scandinavia SIG - previously Denmark SIG - >from the
very beginning and was also a co-founder of the Jewish Genealogical
Society in Denmark.

I am sure we will all miss him.

Leif Rosenstock's name will soon be added to JewishGen's Wall of Honor:

Good afternoon,
Can anyone tell me how to get copies of ships manifests for ships docking in
Philadelphia, Pa circa 1911?

In Baltimore I know that you can contact the Jewish Museum and for a small
fee they will research and sent dockuments to you.

Also, does anyone have information on the ship BRESLAN out of Breman to
Philadelphia?

I would imagine that this is unlikely. The only Prince of Wales at this time
was the future Edward VII. Any of his family would have the surname of the
royal family (Saxe Coburg?), and not Wales.

The genealogy of the British royal family is well documented, and would be
available online.

Hi genners -

I have a pocket watch that belonged to my grandfather, who was
born in Galicia but went to Vienna in the late 19th century.

I have always been told that the watch cover was made of "Tula
silver". I have discovered that tula is a place in Russia, but
does the name have any particular significance or otherwise?
Tula is famous for samovars. Every samovar I have ever seen had a Tula mark
stamped on it, usually at the neck. Samovars are generally made of brass; a
silver one would be a sight to see. Given that there were lots of
coppersmiths in the town, it wouldn't be surprising that some were working
in silver as well; the tchniques are the same.

Locating KING or KOENIG between 1857-1863 #usa

samorai <samorai@...>
 

This is my first posting to EarlyAmerican Sig and would I appreciate some
help! I have been connected to BohMor for about 3 years and have had
relatively easy, even spectacular, success with my German and Czech
ancestry. However, I have a total blank for Karl KOENIG (Charles KING -
1837-1915) and Joseph KOENIG (Joseph KING - 1835-1930) who arrived in the
United States >from Prague in the summers of 1857 and 1858 respectively and
arrived in Whitby, Ontario, Canada (then Upper Canada) at the beginning of
1863. Charles King (my g-grandfather) is subject of intended biography
focussing on his political career in small Ontario town.

Information available

1. A letter of introduction on behalf of Charles KING (in English) for a
position as an apprentice tanner at a Boston leather firm, dated 1857. No
name of firm or name of addressee.

2. Passport with stamps of Joseph KING indicating exit >from Prague to
Bodenbach (5 July 1858), Saxony, and probably to Hamburg for departure
(Bremen??). His passport is "renewed" by a brother in Prague in 1862 through
New York.

3. Elderly and very alert grandson (now 88 yrs) recalls hearing that Joseph
KING was in New Hamburg, NY. Weak evidence - left 'old' Hamburg and figured
'new" Hamburg would be best bet.

4. 1932 reproduction of 1857 photo of 3 KOENIG brothers (Karl, Joseph and
Leopold). Can't determine whether taken in Prague or in United States but
suspect Prague, given possible disarray and possible limited finances on
arrival in America plus arrivals in two separate years and no evidence that
3rd brother came to America at this time.

5. Family legend that KING Bros. manufactured leather belt for Monitor
enabling victory of North in Civil War. Validity of being industrial belt
manufacturer with American connections in Albany in 1880 confirmed by 1880
newspaper interview.

6. Charles KING married Henriette KOHN at Temple Sinai in Chicago on 29
March 1866. The place confirmed by on-line availability of early Temple
Sinai marriages and date verified through siddur inscription.

7. Joseph KING married Recha (Rebecca) HEUMANN (1847-1934) in April 1870,
probably in New York.


The questions:

a) Is there any way to locate U.S. arrival of King brothers in 1857 and
1858? Port of entry could be Boston, New York . . . .

b) Is there any way to locate arrival of KING brothers in Upper Canada
toward the beginning of 1863? My understanding is that people crossed
borders at this time without any official registration.

c) Can I find the tannery where the leather belt(s) for the Monitor was
manfactured? Smithsonian Institute Naval Civil War expert told me in 1988
"No" because subcontracting for ship building signed in name of contractor only.

d) Can I locate marriage registrations in Eastern seaboard states or nuptial
announcements in Jewish Press? (American Israelite was looked at). This item
less important. shana tova

Paul KING Jerusalem, Israel

looking for Charles and Joseph KING (or KOENIG), HEUMANN, SHIRE (Buffalo,
Chicago, Milwaukee - much 19th c. info but no 2004 relative connection) and
KOHN (Chicago).

To the best of my knowledge, all existing Census returns and
Revision Lists for Bialystok city and Uyezd are housed at the
Belarus State Archives in Grodno. The Belarus SIG, with support
from BIALYGen -- the Bialystok Region Jewish Genealogy Group --
has extracted and transliterated all the existing returns of the
1897 All-Russia Census for Grodno Gubernia. The surviving
returns represent only a small percentage of the original census
returns. For more information see

The Belarus SIG website also includes an inventory of Jewish
records housed at the Grodno Archives at

Bialystok area Revision lists cited here have not been indexed or
extracted. I do not personally have any experience with the
