Rubin & Anna GOLDBERG of Kolki, Ukraine>Phil>Milw circa 1903-1910 #general

CAROLYNR
 

Trying again to locate any information connected to my GOLDBERG grandparents. The
names are all so common, that I have seen many census and other records that
include very similar names, dates etc - but as I go further along in researching
the various families, they don't match at all.

This is what I have been able to document, and then some added anecdotes.
Rubin GOLDBERG b. 15Mar-or Apr-1881 in Kolki, Russia/Poland 1920 Census said from
Valin, so I believe "Kolki Russia" to be Kolki, in Luck, Ukraine, aka Volinskaya,
Volin, Volyn. Arrived 27Nov1903 or 1904 in Philadelphia, via Liverpool, was a
Butcher by trade, and went to his cousin's, Isaac Woogman, at 702 Kater St. (who
just happens to be another jewish-genner, Selma Neubauer's Grandfather / but we've
not yet determined any actual relationship) He died 11April1931 in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin. His grave marker lists his father as Simche. (Not known if surname was
GOLDBERG)

His wife, Annie GOLDBERG (aka Anna R Goldberg, aka Chane Goldberg) b.1883 or
15Dec1879 (various birth dates on diff legal docs) Arrived several years later,
10Sept1907, with their eldest son, Leo, (Levi) b. 1May1902. She listed her last
residence as Kolky, Russia and said her passage was paid by Father-in-Law, Schiku
Goldberg, and she was joining her husband in Phil, at 328 Monroe St. She arrived
via Ellis Island, NYC.

They lived in Philadelphia then moved to Racine, Wisconsin and then Milwaukee,
Wisconsin. The family was Orthodox, but I do not think they attended temple
regularly. I tried writing to get info >from the elder, Rabbi Twerski in Milwaukee
before he passed, but he never responded. Rubin listed his occupation in 1922 as
a junk dealer, (Peddler), but they eventually had a store in Milwaukee called the
Sherman Park Grocery, at 52nd and Center streets, just down the block >from their
duplex.

Their children were:
Leo Goldberg b. 1May1902 in Kolki, Russia (Ukraine) d.bef 1952
Louis Goldberg b. 15June1908 in Philadelphia, PA USA d. 5Nov1952 Milwaukee, WI
Hyman Goldberg b. 10Dev 1909 in Racine, Wisconsin USA d.17Feb1976 Milwaukee, WI
Sidney Goldberg b. 2Aug1910 in Kenosha, Wisconsin USA d. Jun1982 Los Angeles,
California
Mary Goldberg b.15April1914 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA d. 13Feb1998
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Isadore Goldberg b. 14Jan1916 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA d.21Sept1965
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Meyer Goldberg b. 10Oct1917 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA d. 15Apr1967
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

My father was Meyer, married to Audrey. They lived their entire lives in the
Milwaukee area, as did I until this past year when I moved to the Cincinnati area.

Family Notes I can not prove:
1.)"They were never married and they'd taken Annie's last name of Goldberg instead
of his" OR "they were both named GOLDBERG), OR "his may have been GILBERT." (I
think that meant they never had a civil marriage and they used her last name, as
was traditional when no civil marriage was done in Ukraine?).
2.)Per daughter Mary in 1986; she said "grandparents died young; no pictures and
never heard >from them." (I do not think they ever left Ukraine)
3.) "Anna's parents were Morris and Annie Muriel GOLDBERG." (I have no
documentation and only heard this once - not sure who said it or how they knew
this.)

Please contact me privately, cmrhere@aol.com, if you have any information related
to our family, or post info that may also be useful for others via the newsletter.
I have pictures and a video of grave markers at the Anshai-Lebowitz cemetery, and
some family on my website if interested; www.rutherfordgenealogy.org

Re: Boston, Mass. department store question #general

Mitch Hollander <mitch00@...>
 

Bradlee's may be unlikely; the first store opened in Connecticut in 1958 and the
chain was acquired by Stop & Shop in 1961.
(http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/Bradlees-Discount-Department-Store-Company-Company-History.html)
NOTE: The tinyurl is http://tinyurl.com/2wlxh2x

New information is that a relative named Marvin GORE visited the Boston relatives
almost fifty years ago (1960s), and says, "I think I recall that they owned a
department store, Freddlies or something like that." The closest I can come to
this, in researching names of defunct Boston department stores, is Bradlees.

Looking for name change documentation for Frank P. Roberts #general

Immediate family has informed me that some time ago my paternal grandfather likely
changed his last name to Roberts >from Rabinowitz/Robinowitz (no existing family
member is even sure this was the original surname). I am looking for resource(s court
documentation or any type of information that might help me determine his actual
surname. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

My grandfather, Morris Silverberg, in his naturalization papers listed my
grandmother's place of birth as Rosow, Poland. Is there such a place? My
grandmother, on entry into the US stated her place of birth as Warsaw. Is
Rosow a section of Warsaw?
Rosow (accented 'o'), pron [roh soov] was small town in Sniatyn district of
Stanislawowo region of Eastern Galicia. Town had 45 Jewish residents in 1900, and
there are five entries for this town in JGFF database.

But this obviously not a town located near Warsaw.

from the review of the potential candidate towns in Warsaw's close vicinity, I
believe that town in question could be Rajszew, located 11 miles NW >from Warsaw
near larger Jewish town Jablonna and mighty Jewish town Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki.

Russian Jews emigrating to Israel #general

joyweave
 

Can anyone tell me if there is a database online that lists Jews who emigrated from
Russia to Israel once the USSR was breaking up and loosening its restrictions on
leaving the country?

I don't read Hebrew, but can forward the information to a cousin who made aliyah.
We are trying to learn whether Wolf and Beila Blumberg might have done this. They
are on the Tashkent transport list and settled on a collective farm, but we don't
know what became of them after 1942.

Searching descendants of Yisrael ben Yosef of Ostog Mid-19th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I am searching for descendants of R' Yisrael ben(son of) Yosef who lived in Ostrov
during the first half of the 19th cent. The following is known about him:

There is an unproven theory that his family name was ROSENBAUM (or variant of)His
father Yosef was possibly the Rabbi of Bresnitz (not Czech) His son, Yosef, married
the daughter of the Admo"r of Lechowitz R' Aaharon and Pearl. He seems to have been
associated with Karlin Chassidic followers. His mother was a descendant of R'
Naftali KATZ, author of "Smichas Chachomim". He and his wife made aliya to Eretz
Yisrael (Palestine) around the 1830s. He lived in Tzfat and/or Tveria and may have
moved to Jerusalem but is presumed to have been buried in Tveria. In "Sefer Tveria"
published in the 1970s there is listed the name ROSENBAUM without indication of
first name or period of time in Tveria. His children are known to have lived in
Skalat and Starokonstantine. His grandson, Yacov Gedalya SCHECHTER (my
greatgrandfather), son of David (ben Yisrael) made aliya in the latter half of the
19th cent. His descendants are well recorded.

If the above seems familiar to anyone I would be happy to hear >from you

Two Items of Interest #general

Ann Linder
 

For many of us with Holocaust connections, read --Their Mother's Rescuer: A
Revelation in Brussels -- in Sunday's edition of The New York Times.
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/01/nyregion/01about.html?_r=1&ref=todayspaper
for Brit researchers, there is a London connection in the story. If anyone is not
able to link to the story feel free to contact me and I will send it to you.

A current exhibition at the Neue Gallery in NYC features works by Otto Dix, a major
German artist who painted portraits of Germans, including some German Jews. Perhaps
he painted one of your ancestors?

Petition for Naturalization #general

Susan
 

The copy of the 1939 U.S. Petition for Naturalization I received >from the USCIS
Genealogy Program for my GM is very difficult to read and most of the printed lines
are faded and blurred. Does anyone know where I can see a copy of the original
blank form? In addition, in the space where it may supply the birth place of her
deceased husband, it may say Klarkov, Austria. I've never been able to find an
immigration record for my GF, Emanuel Silberstein, and we have never known exactly
where he was from, so this is important information; however, there doesn't seem to
be such a place. His draft card and only census record just say Austria. He died in
1921 without having become a citizen. Any ideas?
