There has been recently a discussion as to the contents of various Czech
archives especially the location of Familianten books. The publication
"Judaica Bohemiae" published in Volume VII, in the 1970s, an extensive
list of the Jewish holdings of the Jewish Museum in Prague....There is a
separate list in Judaica Bohemiae of other items not organized by
locality...such as lists of community members, synagogue seating plans
etc.


Re: possible "nickname" #belarus

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Could the name Icko found on the Yad Vashem database be a nickname or
a
familiar name for Yitzchak?.

Carol Skydell
Laguna Woods
My Grandfather Yitzchok was named on a Berlarusian document as "Itsco"
My guess is that Icko is a variant of the same, probably pronounced as
Itsco.
Larry Gaum


thanks for Icko responses #belarus

Carol W. Skydell <cwskydell@...>
 

The consensus is that Icko and the variant spellings (Itsco, Itzko) is the
Polish version of Yitzchak.
thanks everybody..

Re: norfolk passenger lists? #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

Certainly, Jews arrived at every Port of Entry into the US. These include
Montreal, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and others.

All surviving passenger lists for those ports are in the US National
Archives on microfilm, and most also have surname indexes. In addition to
the National Archives and certain of its Branch Archives, you can access
these films through the Family History Centers operated by the Mormons. but
you can't do that via the internet, at least, not yet.

Hi everyone,

After an outpouring of helpful info to my last request, please let me try
another.
I am looking for information on Harry SANDLER who died in Norfolk, Virginia
in April 1923. His death certificate mentions his being in the US for 2
years & one month (so he arrived about March 1921). That's all I have. I do
know he joined a large contingent of his family in Norfolk and suspect
that's where he sailed.
The Ellis Island search (using H. SANDLER with soundex on Steven Morse's
site) was negative.

I'd like to know if Jews arrived elsewhere on the East Coast, if there are
lists of such arrivals & how one goes about searching.
Thanks again.

More on Rachela GLATZER #general

JELORRAINE
 

Dear genners. It looks like I got a little sloppy with my typing, I am still
trying to find Rachela Glatzer daughter of Miriam Uscier & Mendel Glatzer
( Miriam retained her maiden name,) It seems that couples who did not wanto
pay for registering their marriages were satisfied with being married by a Rabbi.
Miriam & Rachela arrived in the U S in 1912. I
believe Rachela married between 1913 & 1920 She lived in the Bronx,New York
so I understand. Perhaps there is a child or grandchildren who might see this and
contact me.
Rachela was my father in law Max Glatzers much younger sister. They all came
from Buczacz in the Ukraine.
Many thanks Jewel Glatzer jelorraine@aol.com

Isaac GOLDBERG, man of mystery! #general

Connie Fisher Newhan
 

What I know about my ggf Isaac GOLDBERG:

He was born around 1865 in Russia-Poland.
He was in Manchester, England by Dec 4, 1885 when he applied for a Pedlar's
Certificate.
Isaac and Celia FELDMAN were married in Manchester, England April 12, 1886
I do not know if he and Celia knew each other prior to Manchester. At the
time of his marriage, Isaac was a waterproof garment maker, living on
Pimblett Steet, Cheetham. Later that year they left Manchester and sailed from
Liverpool to NYC. They arrived in NYC November 26, 1886.
No place of birth is listed on the marriage certificate. He is listed on
the ship manifest as Isaac GOLBERG. His birthplace on various censuses is
listed as Russia.
His father's name on his ketuba is Shmuel Haim Halevi.
He died in 1927 in NYC. His death certificate lists his birthplace as
Russia. Isaac's parents are listed as Joe Goldberg and Hilda BLUM, both born in
Russia. Informant's name is not listed
He is buried at Mt. Carmel Cemetery, Ridgewood, NY in the 1 Anshe Sokolka
section.

According to my gm Sarah Goldberg's birth certificate October 12, 1888,
Isaac's birthplace was listed as Russia. Russia was also listed as the birthplace
of Sarah's mother, Celia Feldman Goldberg. Celia was born in Kaunas, Lithuania.

I know no other details. Birthplace, siblings, etc. I would love to have
some direction for new research. How would I check passenger lists for
England in the 1880's? Any ideas on how to check with the Anshe Sokolka society
to see if Isaac actually was >from Sokolka?

Any ideas, and direction would be gratefully appreciated.

JACOBS from Riga #general

ds.files <ds.files@...>
 

I am trying to trace the Jacobs family >from Riga.

My great grandparents were Mandel & Sarah Jacobs.
Their children were Oscar, Morris, Isadore, William, Rudolpf and Mary.
Oscar, Morris, William and Rudolpf immigrated to the U.S. at various times
through Canada. When they were to go into the Russian Army they took leave
and immigrated. (not proven)
Mandel, Sara, Isadore and Mary came in through Ellis Island.
My grandfather Oscar was born in Friedrickstad, Russia 19, Sept., 1873

We just recently discovered there was another daughter who stayed in Latvia,
although she sent her children to the United States. I have yet to find
them. She was killed in a concentration camp. I want to find her and bring
her back to the family.

The family originally came >from Germany to Russia probably during one of
the great migrations. They raised cattle in Germany and the story goes
that they were meat cutters for the Czar in Russia. None of this has been
proven.
