ABRAHAMSON from Rokiskis, Lithuania #general

Anderson Jill <jill.anderson@...>
 

Dear Group,

Is there anyone in the USA who is related to an ABRAHAMSON family,
originally >from Rokiskis, Lithuania? I am trying to find sons and
daughters of my great grandmother's. She was Hannah (or Annie)
Abrahamson, born 1859. She came to London in about 1913, and stayed
with her son, Marks (Menachem Mendel), born 1880, died 1944. Then, in
1916 she went to live in the USA, and stayed with her daughter and
son-in-law, Rachel and Sam NORR, in Brooklyn. I have found the
descendants of this family. I know she had more children and I think
they must have lived in the USA, but I have no idea where, nor do I
know their names.

It seems that Hannah remarried sometime between 1916 (when she is
described as a widow on her ship's manifest) and 1920, when she is
listed on the census for Brooklyn as "Annie LIPOWITZ". Her husband
may have been called Moses. I have not been able to find a marriage
record for her. She died in 1929 and is buried in Old Montefiore
Cemetery.

Her first husband was Jacob, and her other son, my grandfather, was
Morris (Yisroel Moshe), born 1885, died 1919. I think her maiden name
was SCHUSTER, and there may be a connection to New Haven, Connecticut.
Neither I, nor the Archive in Lithuania, has been able to find any
information about this family.

Thank you

Re: MOSCOVITCH in Salford North, Manchester #unitedkingdom

Two days ago I queried about Adolf and Milly MOSCOVITCH, born in the
1870's, who reached Britain in the 1890's >from Wielun, W. Poland. He was my
grandfather's first cousin, and they lived five houses >from one another on
Dow St, Salford North, Manchester in 1901.

Today I learned that Adolf's brother, Bernard MOSKOWITZ, of
Boston,USA, changed his name to MORSE in about 1915. Adolf visited his
brother in Boston in 1904, but apparently returned to England.

So now I'm searching for Adolf and Milly's descendants in Manchester
or anywhere else in Britain, America, S. Africa, etc. I am guessing their
name was changed too, to MORSE, MORRIS, MOSS, etc. Personal names of
their children and grandchildren would be based on ancestors: Joseph,
Juda>Julius>Julian, Melech, Michael, Dora, Ester, Nacha>Natalie, Nancy.

In Britain are there name-changing records accessible by internet?

Siauliai District Research Group Coordinator #lithuania

Carol Baker
 

I am very pleased to announce that Deena Berton, who is the coordinator of
the Telsiai District Research Group, has agreed to take over the Siauliai
Group responsibilities as the new Coordinator. Deena is a friend and
neighbor and we have worked together over the last 10 years on various
projects and even traveled to the Lithuanian archives in 2000 in an effort
to expedite the acquisition of records.

Deena is a computer guru by occupation and has recently created a fabulous
web page for the Telsiai Group to facilitate the flow of information. She
will immediately begin to do the same for the Siauliai Group and we will be
working together to get the data posted.

I have been in charge of the Siauliai Group since its inception in 1998 and
can assure you all that it couldn't be in better hands than those of Deena
Berton.

Thank you all for the many flattering letters you sent to me in
acknowledgement of my resignation last month. I am sure you will give Deena
a warm welcome.

Dear Genners,

In a previous message Dina Hill asked if children were being born at home
in 1887.

Joy Rich replied, "Yes, children were still being born at home during the
1880s." ... ...

Just an FYI. When looking for birth info, don't assume that the child was
born in a hospital close to where the family resided.
