Looking for some help tracking someone down in the UK #general

Philip Trauring
 

Not living in the UK, I'm not overly familiar with the Jewish genealogical
resources available there. The only mailing list I was able to find was available
only to paid members of the local genealogical organization. I am writing to ask
that someone who lives in the UK and knows where to post to try to find someone,
can help me in getting my inquiry out in front of the right people.

I'm looking for someone who posted several Pages of Testimony at Yad Vashem back in
1989. Her address then is listed in Brentwood, Essex. If she's still alive she
would be about 82 today. I'm looking for Diana Davis (formerly Goldina Trauring)
married to Michael, mother of Graham and Anne. If someone on this list knows or
knew her, or can help me get this inquiry in front of more people >from the UK, I
would greatly appreciate hearing >from you.

Thank you,

Re: I messed up again. #general

DrYattz <winwinsit@...>
 

I have been humbled by the warm and
wonderful response I have received >from newly-discovered family members, and I
hope that, like me, even if you start out simply trying to gather information,
you will also have your life enriched by the extended family you discover.
Lisa, yours is a wonderful set of suggestions! I've recently been
researching my wife's family, and in the process, have facilitated the
rejoining of two "lost" lines of cousins - one represented by a cousin
who had grown up being told he had no surviving kin beyond his
immediate family! In one situation, second cousins were attending the
same synagogue many hundreds of miles >from their common ancestor's
first US residence, and despite having the same last name, they knew
nothing of each other! (Whew. . . to have been at that reunion. . !)

In this usually delightful part of genealogy, I found a cousin of my
wife eager to share information but having none, whose aunt had bitter
memories she was reluctant to share (particularly with a sheygets).
So, for two months now, he and I have corresponded by email and phone,
and he has eagerly provided little nuggets of information which I have
researched, contacting him after each with more questions which he has
gracefully, gently posed to his aunt. For now, it's working!

Re: NY Marriage Lic lookups requested #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybruc@...>
 

Joy recently stated that marriage records were not required in NYC until
after 1900 and in the rest of the state after 1880. I know the 1880 law,
but even before that marriages were recorded - even in NYC.

My ggrandparents, 2 couples, had marriages recorded in New York City in 1870,so
don't stop looking just because the law may not have required the registration.
I got their parents' names >from them, their places of origin, etc. You need to
search carefully, even if there wasn't a law.

And for one of these couples, I had to look at the records myself, as the search
I did by mail (many years ago) didn't find them under the exact names I sent -
they used fancier names, but I know they were the right people.

Australian Papers #general

naomi ogin
 

Dear All

In 1896, a death notice was placed in the Jewish
Chronicle (UK) which said Australian Papers please copy.

So far I've not found anything in the Beta/Trove site or
Paperspast. Any idea where a notice would have been placed
for that time frame. I'm presuming it was a Jewish
publication.

Many thanks

BIRENBAUM #general

Sandra Lilienthal
 

Dear friends,

If you have a Yitzchak Aizik BIRENBAUM in your family tree, can you
please contact me? I know very little about the family other than he
had a daughter called Frymeta (Fayga), who married Hilel Dov (Bernard)
Lecycky. Frymeta was born in 1885, so my guess is that Yitzchak would
have been born around the 1860s. Frymeta lived in Warsaw, where she
passed away in 1936 but it is very possible that her family was
originally >from Lodz.

Thanks in advance!

Korenman census 1858 Ukraine: translation #general

DrYattz <winwinsit@...>
 

I am researching the KORENMAN family, who lived in Ukraine before
emigrating to the US between 1890 and 1921. The earliest known
ancestor is Shalom Korenman, whose son Yekhezkel was born in Shargorod
around 1851. (Shalom's name appears on Yekhezkel's 1911 death
certificate; nothing more is known of him.)

I obtained these images >from the archives of Shargorod, Ukraine, now
contained in Vinnitsia, which include 1858 census entries for the
Korenman family. They are:

http://i258.photobucket.com/albums/hh242/winwinsit/censusLR.jpg
shows both pages

http://i258.photobucket.com/albums/hh242/winwinsit/censusL.jpg
comprised of male family members on the left page

http://i258.photobucket.com/albums/hh242/winwinsit/censusR.jpg
comprised of female family members on the right page

The Korenman entries are numbered 294 and 120 in what are labeled No.
9 audit and No. 10 audit. My Ukrainian researcher has provided an
initial translation, but she's better at recognizing Russian than
spelling English. She says they feature a Shulim Korenman and his son
Haskel.

Might this Haskel be Yekheskel, who is listed as an 11-year-old son?

Can we assume Shulim is Shalom?

And can we deduce the names of Yekhezkel's mother and siblings from
these entries?

I would appreciate any help available in translating these entries.
