Re: Bad Salzungen Jewish Community & Roeschen SCHMIDT nee EISEMANN #germany

I made an error in my post yesterday. I stated:
"I add that there is an entry in the FTJP showing EISEMANNs in Bad Salzungen
who earlier lived in Bauerbach, Baden. If this is indeed where the Bad
Salzungen EISEMANNs came from, then it is less likely to be my family."

I have been informed that this Bauerbach is the one that is in Thueringen
(Thuringia). I did not know previously that this town existed.
It is between Meiningen in Thueringen and Mellrichstadt in Bayern. Thus,
it is still quite possible that it is the same family.

Hi.

If you know the name of a business or corporation, you can look up the
corporate information via
http://www.corporations.state.pa.us/corp/soskb/csearch.asp

The owner's name may be listed--which in my case gave me another name
to research, with positive results!

Unfortunately, there isn't a search by last name of the owner...

Another Search Tip for Everyone (Capital Letter Mix-Ups) #general

H Duboff

Hi.

In the (rare) event this hasn't been mentioned here before; on many
records, including the Census, the letter "F" can be mistaken for a
"T" or "J."

I was able to add another surname, RATNER, to the family tree via
marriage records, and looked it up in the census. I was amazed to
find that in the same house that the RATNER family lived, my
great-great uncle, Lewis FAERSTEIN and his wife, Rose (nee RATNER)
also lived. Because of the penmanship, the Census index had the "F"
as a "T" making the name "TAERSTEIN!" It even could have been
mistaken for a "J."

Had I not found this other connection (RATNER), I probably wouldn't
have found FAERSTEIN in the 1920 Census.

How to interest relatives... #general

Michelle Fanwick
 

Good Morning,
Last year in my Rosh Hashanah letter/Card I sent every relative (about 200
plus) a family tree and told them how we were related. I enclosed contact
info for my self and asked them to let me know if I omitted any information
or there were any errors. I was very lucky and I received a lot of
responses. I try to contact everyone twice a year, I send a picture of my
family and then they know who we are and I think that makes them more likely
to respond to my inquiries. I also email pictures to new finds and I always
tell them how we are connected, before I ask for information. I also thank
them for the information that I'm looking forward to receiving.

Good luck and Happy New Year,

OXENHORN/GERMAN #general

AllanDolgow@...
 

My grandmother, Chaike( Ida) GERMAN (or HERMAN), was born in NV in about
1877. My grandfather, Meyer Isaac OXENHORN or (OXENGORN), was born in
Ostrog, Ukraine in about 1869. He had a first wife whose last name we
don't know and a son by that marriage. The first wife died and my
grandparents were married by 1897 possibly in Kamenny Brod. Oral history
is grandmother refused to raise the child,and we do not know what became of him.

When my grandfather immigrated to the U.S. in 1904 >from Kamenny Brod, the
ship manifest claimed he was going to his brother-in-law named Isaac
COOPERSMITH (manifest spelling) who lived on 73 Jefferson Street in New York
City. We don't how they were related, except that perhaps this was the maiden
name of the deceased wife.

If anyone has this information that could pertain to this contact me
directly.

Yiddish word "Ah-noos" #general

Lenn Zonder <lenwriter@...>
 

Subject: Translation of Yiddish word "ah-noos"
From: <lenwriter@...

<hekenvin@...> asked if anyone knew what
"ah-noos" meant. Like Stan Goodman, I don't know
either. However, I would venture an educated guess
that it is flaxseed oil.
The 2000 edition of the Cambridge World History of
Food records the use of flaxseed oil for cooking in
Russia in the 19th Century and the use of seeds for
making tea.
Actually, flaxseed oil was known to the Romans and
Greeks before the common era, and even earlier, by the
Egyptian Pharaohs.
