It was a big surprise to discover that word on the birth register for my
grand father Josef ROSENBERG born in Cernovici. His 3 siblings were called
SHAPIRA and it seems they all had the same father.
Could you send me Daniela Torsh's message about the Familianten laws?

Thank you!

Dear All,

I've received the answer and now know what the role my grandmother played
in the play.

The general consensus is that the Yiddish "Baleboste fun a tey-shtibl"
translates to THE OWNER OF THE TEA-HOUSE or TEA ROOM in English.

Several people added some additional translation ideas and nuances to the
phrase.

Thank you all so much for your much appreciated help! I've tried to thank
each of you individually and hope I didn't miss anyone.

Who is Elusom? #poland

Amos Sobel 4X4MF
 

Dear Friends

My great grandfather, Eliezer Sobel, appears in JRI-Poland Records by
three names: Luser Sobel, Leiser Abraham Sobel and Abraham Elusom Sobel.
All were married to the same wife so I had come to the conclusion that
this was the same person. I could not find the name Elusom anywhere in
JRI-Poland or the internet.

Does anybody know what does the name Elusom mean and what is its source?

Yours Sincerely
Amos Sobel

Hi Everyone,

Exciting news for anyone with an interest in Polangen (Palanga)!

Polangen (Palanga) Vital Records for the years 1922-39 have now been located
at the Lithuanian Archives. (Records prior to 1923 tend to be found in
the Latvian Archives; records after about 1922 tend to be found in the
Lithuanian Archives. >from what I can understand, this is because Polangen
moved >from being under the jurisdiction of Courland to that of Lithuania
c.1923.

Early information about the Vital Records reveals a list of surnames
covering 121 death records and 627 marriage records (about 310-350
marriages). As always, people came not only >from Polangen but from
surrounding towns as well.

The List of surnames plus details of how to get further information is
now freely available at http://telsiai.shutterfly.com/. Simply scroll down
to the bottom of the page and click on this link to see the complete list of
surnames: "TEL-PAL-1922-1939- SURNAME LIST.xls". If you think your family
is amongst these it would be great to hear >from you!

Sighet Maramos #subcarpathia

Hello all;
I joined this group today and have gotten my welcome email.
My grandmother is a mystery to me. I know she was Hungarian and
according to my Dad lived in Maramos (I don't understand what the
"Bereg" or the "Sighnet" is...and she lived in the "transylvania
region. I cannot find a town where the "Kleins" actually lived so
do not know if this is the group I need to join.

All I know about Rosie Klein is her Dad's name was Moritz (Choritz)
and her mother's name was Hany or Fany Heisler Klein (gotten >from her
marriage certificate in NYC) Her :intent papers say she was >from Berek
Munich Hungary. (I have translated to Bereg Monkach Hungary)

Her intent papers say she came to US on the SS Varrow on June 11, 1887
via Bremen. I have never been able to find this ship or an arrival on
this date to NY.

She married Marcus Merling in NYC Dec 1895 and they had Rachel, Bernard
(died as child) and my father Morris (Murray). they lived on the lower east
side and rolled cigars for a living. Marcus died in 1910 and is in a pauper's
grave. I know there is family in Montreal but they seem to know very little.
If anyone can find any "insight" in how I can further my research I
would greatly appreciate it.

Maxine Potchinsky

Re: Suggestion when you can't determine original family surname #general

Here is a variation. I was looking for the twon a family came from. All five
brothers married and lived subsequently in NYC, so their marriage and other
records were readily available. Problem is, every one said either "Austria" or
"Galicia."

But one had the town name - the WWII old men's draft card for the eldest brother.

Ira--If you can't find anything directly on your grandfather, it is
time to start branching out laterally.

David,

Stepney Green Synagogue was most likely The East London Synagogue at Rectory
Sq, Stepney Grn. Here's a link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/london/EE_eastlondon_utd/index.htm.

If you're looking for family >from The East End you may like to join our The
Jewish East End of London group on Facebook. While we're a general interest
group for anyone with an interest in The Jewish East End, we do have many
people looking into their family trees. Most of us either come >from the East
End or our families did so with all our combined knowledge, it's a good
place to ask about your family and where they lived. And Jewish geography
being what it is, several people have found what they're looking for! See
you there.

All the best,

My great grandfather Lazarus KOLSKY never became a uk citizen. I gave up
trying to find out much more about him until speaking with my great aunt
last week. She mentioned she had an alien registration card for my great
grandfather and this week my sister in England scanned a copy and sent it to
me. Wow. Now I have a whole range of new information including residences,
workplaces between 1916 and
1941 as well as a picture of my great grandfather... and we have no other
pictures. Definitely one of those aha moments especially as it confirms my
great grandmother lost her British citizenship when she married my great
grandfather. I also learned he had 2 nephews Harry Kolsky and Harry GOODMAN.


Now the question. The alien card says my great grandparents were married at
Stepney green synagogue in 1911. Any ideas of where this was as there seem
to have been many synagogues in Stepney.
