LANGLEBEN from the Ukraine? #general

arnonh@tapuz.co.il <arnonh@...>
 

Hello, Dear Genners!

My g-great-aunt, Itta-Leah BRUMBERG married Mordechai Nathan LANGLEBEN.
The BRUMBERGs had lived in the area of khmelnitskiy, Ukraine, however I
have no idea of where did this LANGLEBEN come >from or where did the
couple live after their marriage.

One son of Itta-Lea and Mordechai Natahn was Levi (Louis) LANGLEBEN,
born 1897, who immigrated to Cuba and died there in 1953. His family
(wife and children) left Cuba to the States and lived there, and I'm
in contact with them.

According to a family oral tradition, Levi (Louis) had a "much older
brother", named "Shulem" (Shalom), the descendant of whom -- Leibl --
once vidited the family in the States.

Also, there was probably a branch in Chicago.

That's it!

If any of the above rings a bell, please contact me.

Yours,
Arnon Hershkovitz, Israel

According to the Jacobson Family oral tradition,in 1905 or
1906, My grandmother Bessie Jacobson arrived in Ellis Island
with my mother Rose Jacobson, age about 3 and my aunt Anne

manifest that had all three names on it but the names were
all crossed out.
Hello Julius,

Think its been mentioned already that they were likely
not on the boat. But sometimes they are, just in a differant
part of the manifest.

So I used the SteveMorse Gold form to quickly locate this
family. Seeing they left >from Liverpool, I plugged the Mamas
name into the UK free index search at findmypast.com. It said
two people with that name and age left there the same year,
one for NY, one for Boston. Easy enough then to find her
Boston manifestst on Ancestry.com. I sent you a copy.

Numbers in the All-Lithuanian Revision List #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

My KABACHNIK's lived in Butrimonys. In the All Lithuania Revision
List, and the Alphabetical List of Males, and the Additional Revision
List, there are quite of people with that surname, and many with the
same given names. I'm trying to identify members of my family by
naming patterns, but still there is some confusion. Is there any way
to make use of those Family Registration numbers & Former
Registration numbers and Archive, Fond, etc, to ascertain who was in
my family? I have the same issue with ADELSON's in Stakliskes.

May your New Year be happy and healthy,

Steve Orlen Tucson Arizona

Samuel SCILKEN Affidavit Witness On Passport Application #general

Alva Noonan <alvarose@...>
 

This man is listed on my grandfather's, Sigmund BALTER, passport
application. Sworn on July 16, 1919 in State of NY, County of NY.
The form says Affadavit of Identifying Witness. I, Samuel SCILKEN,
solemnly swear that I am a naturalized citizen of the United States;
that I reside at 14 Beach 64 St Avenue that I have known Sigmund
Balter personally for 10 years and know him to be the identical person
referred to in the with-in described certificate of naturalization;
and that the facts stated in his affidavit are true to the best of my
knowledge and belief. He is listed as a merchant at the Reliable
Glove Co. 32 Union Sq. NY City

I was always told my grandfather used to sew the leather at the
dining room table for the gloves. My GF and this man must have worked
together in 1919 but this form also says my GF came to NYC in 1904 and
had resided in NYC for 15 yearsand he was naturalized April 5, 1910 in
the Southern District Court of NYC.

This even has a description of my GF and his actual picture.

I hope this tidbit can help someone.

1911 Census #unitedkingdom

Jeanette R Rosenberg <106503.3561@...>
 

Hi everyone

Louise Messik asked: "Can anyone tell me whether the return was made by a
census taker or by the head of household?"

I have read somewhere that it was taken by the head of the household. In
fact one of the selling points is that this will give people an opportunity
to see their ancestor's handwriting for the first time.

Curiously I have also noted an issue with someone I was looking for, and he
was also called Lewis! The man in question named himself "Lowis" on his
form, and of course the transcribers did what they are supposed to and
typed what they could see, so they called him Lowis, not Lewis. Of course
this also meant that he wrote the name of his daughter Mary down as "Marry"
but that is just another of those things to make me smile!

Louis / Lewis #unitedkingdom

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Just a note regarding use of the first names of Louis and Lewis. They were
often interchangeable and were usually the anglicized versions of Leib
(Yehudah Leib).

My grandfather, who lived in Manchester, had his name spelled in both ways
on a number of documents. I believe Lewis was the final version that
everyone settled on and his grandson was named Lewis.

It was sometimes common for variant spellings of a name to be used as people
were not as keen on correct spelling as we are today. Combine that with
individuals who were emigrants speaking a foreign language and clerks who
may not have been that well-educated and you get the confusion with names in
records.

For instance, I have many records for the same person and their name is
spelled a different way on each record.
