Seeking FISHMAN family in New Haven, CT #general

Ava Cohn <avatom@...>
 

Hello. I am looking for the descendents of the FISHMAN/FISCHMAN family who settled
in New Haven, Connecticut around 1920. Here is what I know: Malke (Mollie) FISHMAN
(nee GENDELMAN) was born around 1864 in Shpikov, Podolia (now Ukraine). Her mother
was Feige GENDELMAN who later moved to Bratslav. Malke (Molly) married Eliyahu
FISHMAN who died pre-1907. He may be the Eliyahu Chaim Fishman found in the
Bessarabia Death Records as having died in Kishinev in 1894 of a lung and brain
infection.

Malke and Eliayahu had five children: Abram, born circa 1887, Zelik (Joseph) born
circa 1888, Scheindel (Jennie) born 1892, Aran (Harry) born 1891, Yankel (Jacob B.)
born 1893. The children may have been born in Shpikov or in Odessa.The widowed
Malke and four children arrived in the U.S. on November 17, 1907 on the Seydlitz
from Bremen. They were joining her son, Abram,who lived at 313-315 E. 100th Street,
in NY. In the 1910 census, they were all living at 2290 2nd Avenue in Manhattan.
In 1920, Molke and Yankel had moved to New Haven and by 1930, the entire family was
living in New Haven.

Zelik FISHMAN married Rebecca or Beckie (maiden name unknown) and had five
daughters and a son: Helen (or Ellen), Edna, Lillian, Evelyn R., Gertrude (or
Mildred) and C. Stanley. They lived at 438 Elsworth Avenue in 1930. He is listed on
WWII draft registration as working in moving pictures. Daughter Evelyn married
Oscar SHANKEN..Yankel (Jack B.) FISHMAN was possibly a laboratory instructor/
chemist at Yale University. Abram (Abraham) FISHMAN may have lived at 10 Judson
Avenue, New Haven in 1917 and may have married Rose and had one daughter, Ruth B.
born around 1915. Rose C. FISHMAN died in 1974. Abraham FISHMAN died at age 53 in
1940 and may have been in an asylum in Fairfield, CT.

Aran FISHMAN may also have married a woman named Rose and had a son Elihu (born
1926-1927) in Fairfield, CT according to the 1930 US census. Elihu may have married
Myrna and was living in Southbury, CT in 1993-2002 according to telephone
information.

I have no information on Scheindel (Jenny) FISHMAN, if she married or had children.
If this information is familiar to anyone, I would appreciate it if you could
respond privately to my email address. I have already checked JGFF with no success.
So...

Hoping for the best,
Ava Cohn

Searching COHEN Brothers-OK Bazaars #general

SANDI ROOT
 

I search the descendants of brothers who founded the OK Bazaars stores in South
Africa: Malech COHEN, wife, Rose Samuel (Sam) COHEN, wife, Dora
They emigrated to South Africa, probably through Rouxville, OFS, anytime between
1900-1926, >from Kovno, Lithuania, and possibly spent some time in London. One of
their 7 known siblings, Sarah (COHEN) BLUMENTHAL, is my grandmother. Their father
is Abraham Isaac COHEN/KAHAN/KAGAN/KAHANOV/KAHANOFF. They quite possibly knew the
family of Rose (COHEN) & Hyman BANUS/BEINASH (var.) in Lithuania and London - one
of their 6 children, Mark BANUS, was a renowned London accountant.

Thank you for this help.

A Debrecen tombstone query #hungary

joe@...
 

I'm responding publicly because I'd like confirmation of my guess: her
full name IS Leah; the letters after her name are Ayin Hei Shin, as an
abbreviation for "Aleha HaShalom"; "May She Rest In Peace". The usual
acronym is just Ayin Hei, and I can't make out the usual stroke
signifying an abbreviation, but I think I have it right. The rest, in
case you didn't have it, is "daughter of Moshe Shlomo of blessed
memory, deceased 22 Adar I (5)687 [February 24th 1927]".

Mitzvah Day at Arlington National Cemetery #general

mlbishow@...
 

On Wednesday, May 27, 2009, Arlington Cemetery Project volunteers will meet at the
Visitors Center at the cemetery at 10:30 AM to take photos of the graves of the
Jews at Rest in Arlington National Cemetery.

At 10:45 AM, Les Bergen will give a 30-minute orientation to Arlington National
Cemetery and an overview of his guided tour of Arlington Cemetery which will take
place on May 31. The tour is sponsored by the Jewish Historical Society of Greater
Washington and advance registration and payment are required.
See http://www.jhsgw.org/programs/ or call (202) 789-0900.

Volunteers will be paired off and each team will be given a list of photos needed
from that assigned section. The volunteers will also be on the lookout for the
graves not previously identified by the project. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes!

Ample paid parking is available to visitors, accessible >from Memorial Drive.
The cost is $1.75/hour for the first three hours, and $2.00/hour thereafter.
During all hours the cemetery is open the Arlington National Cemetery Metro
stop is regularly served.

The Arlington Cemetery Project is sponsored by the Jewish Genealogy Society
of Greater Washington (JGSGW). The original data was collected by Kenneth
Poch (of blessed memory) prior to his death in 2003. In 2008, Ken's family
donated his materials to JGSGW. Since that time, we have created a database,
added more than 1,100 names and digitized his 2,000 photos. During his
lifetime, Ken also interviewed family members and collected obituaries and
other memorabelia >from the families. This material will also be digitized
and will be available to researchers >from our website. The spreadsheet and
photos will be donated to the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry and
Ken's original materials and photos will be donated the the Jewish
Historical Society of Greater Washington for preservation and conservation.

The project committee includes: Marlene Bishow, Project Manager, Ernie Fine,
Webmaster, Rabbi Marvin Bash, and Eli Savada. See our website at:
http://www.cygnet.org/anc2008/ We are grateful to more than one dozen
members of JGSGW who did data entry for the project.

Volunteers are welcome to participate, but advance registration is
requested. You need not be a member of JGSGW to participate. Please contact
the coordinator at jewish_soldiers@...

Anyone who would like to participate, but cannot do so on May 27, should
contact the project coordinator to obtain a list of photos needed, so that
you can visit the cemetery on your own to take photographs.

SLOMIANSKY Russia to USA #general

Roberta Apte
 

This is my first time posting, and I'm relatively new to genealogy, so please
forgive me if my questions are very basic.

My paternal great grandfather was Myer or Meyer SLOMIANSKY. I found the ship
manifest >from the NY Passenger lists that show him arriving in NY on October 4.
1895, stating he was 23 years old, giving him a DOB of around 1872. The 1900
census lists his birth year as Aug 1866. I would think that 6 years is a pretty
big discrepancy, but maybe not at that time. The manifest only says that he was a
tailor, >from Russia, going to NY.

I knew that he married (Mary Brozofsky) and lived in Massachusetts, and was buried
in a Jewish Cemetery in Nashua, NH. A cousin of mine who stills lives in the area
tried to find the cemetery but couldn't. He stopped and asked a policeman, but
still couldn't find it. This cousin remembers his father saying that Myer had a
brother who was a butcher in Boston, but that's all he knows.

How do I find out:
1. Where Myer was >from in Russia?
2. Who were his parents?
3. Who did he stay with when he came to America?
4. Did he have any other family here?
5. Who was the butcher in Boston?

Two of Myer's sons and one daughter changed their names >from Slomiansky to SLOME,
including my grandfather, Nathan. There are a bunch of Slome's living on the west
coast that I'm wondering if they are related to me, but I have no link.

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for anyone who has an ancestor with the name DULGOV (Dolgoff), or who
has done research on this name. My ancestor, Sophie Dulgov, was born about 1877 in
Krasilov, Ukraine, lived in Felshtin, Ukraine (now known as Gvardeyskoye), and
immigrated to the U.S. in about 1894. Her parents names were Israel and Sarah Dulgov,
and she married Morris SHENKMAN in about 1893.

Surname Isrelowicz/November from Szczucin #general

Simon Holland <simon.holland@...>
 

My Grandfather migrated to England in about 1903 and applied for naturalization in
1911. The papers state that he was born 18 August 1877 in Szczucin, Austria to
Godel Isrelowicz and Gitel November. His name is given as David November (also
known as Daniel November).

There is anecdotal suggestion that my Grandfather was >from a small village outside
Cracow, Poland. Because of the pogroms, he escaped out of Poland with his brother,
Maurice, by swimming across a river and eventually into Russia, then worked his way
on the trains, across Russia, Europe, and then finally by sea to England. Maurice
stayed on in Switzerland, and became a Swiss citizen eventually.

Can anyone help clarify the situation? I would also like to find out more about my
Great Grandfather - Godel Isrelowicz.

Thank you.
