There are hours when that happens to me.
It seems that they have problems with their server.
Or maybe they are fixing or updating at that time.

Families SHERESHEVSKY/SHRASEVSKI #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

For years I'm searching information concerning my father's family, to
no avail and I gave up. Someone just suggested to me that my father's
family name could have been spelled on another way and could have
been changed. That's why I'm posting this mail, without any great
hope... but who knows

My family came >from Lithuania and emigrated to Israel in the middle
of the 19th century. Then part of them went to France, one of them
went to US. I only know, for sure, information concerning my
great-grandparents, who are buried in Jerusalem, in the Mount of
Olvies cemetery. I heard of some other information, but nothing is
sure in it because I never could find any link.

I just was told that the name SHRASEVSKI could be the same as my
SHERESHEVSKY (and other spellings).

Here is the few information I know :

My great-grandparents :
Neche PINES married Jacob SCHERCHEVSKY (or other spelling).
Jacob Ha Cohen SCHERCHEVSKY died in Jerusalem in 1884.
Neche PINES died in Jerusalem in 1891

Between other children, they had my grandfather Samuel (Shmuel) Ha
Cohen CHERCHEVSKY, born about 1860 in Ruzhany, died in Paris in 1936.
They had also probably three other children, among whom I know about
one, named Herschel (Zvi-Hirsch) and his descendants (some are still
living in Israel).
My grandfather married Hava LAZINSKSY, born in Grodno about 1864 and
died in Paris in 1931.

Any information would be welcome.

St. Albans Records #general

Lynne R Shapiro <lynneshap@...>
 

"My" St. Albans record, >from January, 1905, does look almost exactly like
a record >from a ship's manifest, but is >from the Hudson River RR,
Montreal to NYC. The only thing "different" is that only the first seven
lines of a 30 line form are filled in with names and info.; the rest are
actually stamped "not used". The title on the top is "List or Manifest
of Alien Passengers Applying for Admission to the United States from
Foreign Contiguous Territory". When my grandfather came to the United
States, he first entered through New York, and there is an Ellis Island
record for him. But, according to the family lore, he did not have
enough money to be admitted. HIAS saw to it that he was sent to
Montreal. When he was there, he "blackmailed" his wife's brother, an
earlier immigrant to New York, by threatening to leave the wife without
divorcing her if the brother would not vouch for him (put up enough
money?) so he could re-enter the U.S. It worked; a few weeks later, he
was on a train headed for NYC, and the St. Albans records back up this
story. The relative he was going to join was indeed that brother-in-law.
(He sent for his wife late that same year.)

I obtained this record >from NARA in Pittsfield Ma.

Wish they were all this easy!

Yankel is simply a Yiddish diminutive nickname for Jacob. So
Yankelson means "son of Jacob."

Regarding what you call "several forms", these are really all one
form with variant spellings to accommodate local usage. Jankel is
sometimes spelled Yankel because the letter J has a Y sound in
German or Yiddish original. And Jankel can also be spelled
Iankel, because in any word that starts with an I followed
directly by another vowel, the initial "I" automatically has a
consonantal "Y" sound (this usage goes right back to Latin, which
originally used the letter "I" for both the vowel sound and the
initial "Y" sound.

This used to be general knowledge, but evidently that's no longer the
case, especially in America, where so few people nowadays bother to
study foreign languages. I happen to live in Rhode Island, which is
heavily Italian-American. The phone book is replete with names like
Iacovoni, Iacobbo, Iannucci, etc, whose owners have lost touch with
their ancestral culture and no longer know that the initial "I" in
their name is supposed to be consonantal and pronounced like a "Y".
Instead, they routinely treat that initial "I" as a separate sound
pronounced like the English pronoun "I" -- thereby adding a totally
inappropriate extra syllable to their names -- thus Iacobbo, which
should be pronounced Ya-cob-bo, is actually pronounced with four
syllables: I-A-COB-BO.

If anyone out there is researching Italian-Jewish ancestors, this is
worth bearing in mind.

Re: Derivation of the name "JANKELSOHN" #general

JANKELSOHN seems to be a Germanic spelling of YANKELSON, which would be
the equivalent of Jacobson. IANKELZON may be a Polish spelling.
