Searching JOSEPH of South Carolina #general

Lipmanson <lipmanson@...>
 

I am searching for descendents of Gerson JOSEPH, last known of Newberry County,
S.C. in 1860. I have traced him >from birth in Charleston to Newberry Co., but find
no trace after the Civil War. His son, Meyer JOSEPH turns up in Newark, NJ in the
1900 Census, married with two daughters, Miriam and Regina. (Meyer moved to NJ
around 1880 and married Mathilda, born in Wisconsin.) After this, no trace.

Anyone with the names of Miriam and Regina JOSEPH, born in NJ, or JOSEPHs >from SC
in their tree, please contact me offline. The JOSEPHs were early settlers in SC,
with the earliest antecedent being Joseph JOSEPH of Charleston in 1810. Gerson
JOSEPH may have had a twin sister, Pauline JOSEPH. (I have traced her family after
marriage to current day.)

Thank you for any information.

Dear Group:

I am trying to find out if anyone has knowledge of a family >from Haifa, Rifka
PREISS and her husband, who was a professional photographer. If they are still
alive, they would be in their 9O's. If anybody has knowledge either of them or
their adult children, I would greatly appreciate hearing >from you. My father was
Rifka's cousin.
Thank you.

Looking for Yehuda WALEZTEIN, Jaffa, 1956 #general

Merv & Naomi Barnett
 

In 1956 a Yehuda WALEZTEIN of Jaffa, Israel, submitted 2 Pages of Testimony at
Yad Vashem. One page was for Sara WALEZTEIN, the other for Mina FISZGRUND.

I would dearly like to find Yehuda (or his descendants) as I believe there could
be a link to my late mother's family >from Zelva, Grodno gubernia.

Thank you.

Cattle Boats #general

Barbara Zimmer <bravo.zulu@...>
 

According to the web, there were some boats that carried both passengers and
cattle.

Micah Salb asked:
...her husband... came here a little earlier via a "cattle boat."
Does anyone have any idea what that might mean -- is it literal or figurative?
How might I track it down?


Re: Marriage In Leeds circa 1890 #general

Howard Coupland <how.jacque@...>
 

Have you looked at http://www.familysearch.org - British Census 1881 . There is
mention of Isaac Levi born 1863 living with parents Reuben & Mary (prob Miriam)
together with siblings and born circa 1863. Address given 58 Templar Street ,
Leeds. This area was known as The Leylands comparible with New York's Lower East
Side .

Hope this helps.

I draw a blank looking for Isaac Levi in the right time frame. I found a record
from 1890 for an Isaac Levi but that marriage would have occurred 6 months
after my grandmother's birth and her brothers were 3 and 5 at that time.
The brides on this page were both named Betsy and I don't see where Rebecca
turns into Betsy but anything is possible.

Hi Guys

Does anyone know if researcher Elsa DREZNER still responds to her Jewishgen listed
email address, I emailed her last week and received no reply.
I think we may be researching some of the same people in Paris, France and
Kaluszyn, Poland. She is listed as registering with Jewishgen in May 1999.

Thanks

Re: Rabbi AVIGDOR of West Hartford, CT. #general

Lenn Zonder <lenwriter@...>
 

In reply to Yoni Ben-Ari, searching for Rabbi Isaac Simcha HUREWITZ of Hartford,
CT, Shlomo Gurevich <shl2gur@yahoo.com> suggested he broaden his search to
include "Rabbi Yitzhak Chaim AVIGDOR who came to USA in 1848 (sic). In 1949 he
married Esther HOROWITZ (of unknown ancestry), and his mother was Rachel Breindel
HOROWITZ, the granddaughter of R. Avraham Chaim HOROWITZ, ABD and AdMoR of Linsk,
a grandson of R. Avraham Chaim ABD of Linsk, a son of the famous R. Naftali Zvi,
ABD Ropshitz."

If Yoni, and Shlomo, would like to explore this line of inquiry, I suggest they
contact Rabbi David AVIGDOR at Congregation Bikkur Cholem-Sheveth Achim in New
Haven, CT., or at his law office, also in New Haven.

Rabbi AVIGDOR is the son of Rabbi AVIGDOR, formerly chief rabbi of the Hartford
area. Also, they should search AVIGDOR on Google. The AVIGDORs were one of the
three heraldic Jewish families of Europe.
