ULLMANN from Driesen #general

Stephen Gaffin
 

Cousins:
I have a bunch of Ulman/ Ullmans in my Worcester MA Grace-Pelletz-Jaffe
Family History and Tree that may or may interest the Ullman family in
question. They came >from Kamajai/ Rokiskis/ Kaunas/ Riga and Vilnius.

There are some famous actors who are Ullmans, though probably not related--
Liv Ullmann, Tracey Ullman, Ricky Ullman (born Raviv Ullman, Israeli), and
Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.(Douglas Ullman)

from the old Jewish Encyclopedia (1897) The Ulman family originated in the
town of Ulm (where Einstein was born) but moved to Guenzburg, and adopted the
name Gunzberg, or Ginzberg and some branches (Ulma, Ulm and Ullman) of the
family call themselves "Ulma-Guenzburg. There is on record a lawsuit
instituted by Baer Guenzburg of Grodno against a Jewish family of that city
who had adopted the same name under the decree of 1804 (Maggid, "Toledot
Mishpehot Ginzburg," p. 239, St. Petersburg, 1899). The court
sustained the right of Jewish families to adopt any name they chose, and the
number of Guenzburg families accordingly increased.

Etta Grace Ulman The descendents of “Charles Bezalel the First” are Yonkel
(Jacob), Lozer Jaffe, Saie, Zelig, Mende Jaffe, Rive Gittel, Faige, Etta,
Avraham Yehuda, plus a large family of Ulmans, Sniders, and Feldmans in
Worcester.

1. Rashel “Rose” Leah Ulman m. Sirol Hirschl “Harry” Snider June 5, 1902 in
Kamajai (Snider Dressed Beef Co,).
2. Zarah Ulman m. Reubin Snider (brother of Sirol)
3. Hanna Ulman m. Louis Hurwitz
4. Chana Dvorka “Dora” Ulman m. Jake Isaacman
I have details of the complete families of the above.

In the archives of the Worcester “Jewish Civic Leader” the following
mentions are made of this family.
29 June 1945 P5 Wedding of Jacob Ullman to Rena Falthzig.

27 July 1945 P8 Obituary. Morris Schwartzberg, 70, 56 Richmond Ave died.
He was born in Lithuania, son of Simon and Rebecca (Ulman ) Schwartzberg.

Dec. 18, 1975 P13 Sarah (Ulman) Snider died at age 89. She leaves 2 sons:
Abraham and Benjamin Snider, and 2 daughters, Hazel (wife of William T.
Silver) and Ethel, wife of Max Chervin. She leaves a sister, Mrs. Bessie
Pulde, 12 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren. She was born in Russia
and was the daughter of Mendell and Riva (Schwartzberg) Snider and lived in
Worcester more than 65 years. (The last names don’t look right. Her father
should be named Ulman)

If there is interest I would be happy to send the complete tree on request.

Irina Fridman
 

Dear All,

Thank you for all your messages. >from all your replies I gather it was more
to do with personal rather than trend reasons - I suspected it may have
something to do with early Soviet fashion, etc. As a matter of fact the
boy's sister *was* raised in that new family, who also had their children (2
boys as far as I know). *But*, the main question remains: did anyone come
accross those orphanages in Berdichev of those days? Is there any chance to
know anything on this subject?

Thanks for your help!

Daniel WEINBERGER #general

Dear Genners
Daniel [Aser?] WEINBERGER arrived in NY >from Pancevo-Banat/Hungary.
According to Ellis Island data a Gyoza Wainberger >from Pancsova arrived on
Dec. 1913. According to ship's manifest the name he gave as closest
Relative in home town was Vilmos Weinberger . Vilmos was my husband's
grandfather who perished in Beograd in 1941 and brother of Daniel. Their
Father Mor Weinberger died in Pancevo in 1905, thus Vilmos became
responsible for all 8 siblings.
I assume Daniel is Gyoza , nevertheless I could not find any one in 1920 and
1930 census that fit information.
Coming to NY in August, I would like to work on this thread.
Any suggestions?

EPSTEIN, BUNIS, EISENGART #latinamerica

Dear Latamsig Genners,

I am looking for records of my mother's cousin, Nura EPSTEIN, who lived in
Mexico City . She may have been either an EISENGART or a BUNIS by birth. She
had a daughter named Sarita.

Does anyone know whether there are cemetery records available in Mexico, or
has anyone advice on how to trace this name?

Thank you.

Searching the Mt. Zion Cemetery database #galicia

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings all,

I have created a page on my website that suggests the best ways to do a
search on the Mt. Zion Cemetery database. If you are having problems with
your searches, it might pay to take a look at it. The link to this page is
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/erc-scdb.htm .

If you are looking for all the burial entries for a certain surname without
exact knowledge of where they are buried, I would urge you to search all
four available cemetery databases, i.e. those of Mts. Zion, Hebron, Carmel
and Moriah. These databases combined contain information on over half a
million burials.

I am hoping that the searchable databases for Mts. Judah and Ararat will be
created and put online before the August conference. I will let you know
when they are.

As a side note, July 1st marked the one-year anniversary of my virtual
museum website. I am proud of what I have accomplished and am thankful to
all those who have graciously have helped me along the way. I have just
revamped many pages on my site and have added new ones. I hope that you like
what I have done. The best is yet to come.

Does any of this sound familiar?

I recently learned that my grandmother brought two
brothers over >from the Cmeilow area of Poland after
World War II to Toronto, Canada. They were about 18
to 20 years of age at the time, with the surname
Teitelbaum. They would have been born between
1921-1929 in or near Cmeilow Poland. They were
housepainters. According to an aunt, they left
Toronto and moved to Detroit. Apparently, they also
either changed or shortened their surname.
Any information would be welcome. Please respond to
