Question about SHAPIRO ancestries #general

David Goldman
 

Greetings Jewishgenners.
I seem to have discovered that I had a Shapiro ancestor >from what is now Belarus
whose name was Nota (apparently my great-grandfather's great-grandfather). I am
aware that there was a famous rabbinical family in Poland that included rabbis with
that name. Now the issue is whether this means my family's descent >from that
rabbinical family since spellings of the last name varied among SHAPIRO, SHAPIRA,
SPIRO and SPIRA, and some "Shapiros" were identified as kohanim, which my family is
not. Any clarifications about this would be greatly appreciated since I assume that
a name such as Nota would be used in memory of a famous rabbi(s) with that name.

Thanks,
David Goldman

This image on Viewmate is of the Toporosky(sp) family and their
descendants and can be found on at
http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=28200
They had lived in Paris in the 1930's and may have moved to Israel just prior to
WWIl. The matriarch's maiden name was Orzhechovsky and she was >from Zhetel
(Zdzeciol or Dyatlovo) in Grodno Gubernia. She would be my great aunt. We have not
had contact with them since the late 1930's. All we have is this photo, we don't
have any first names. If you have any information on the family or suggestions
where I should research, please respond directly on viewmate or email me directly

Request to translate tombstone -- Hebrew #general

Mr Dmitry Nikelshpur
 

Hi,

I've posted a photograph of a tombstone, for which I need translation of the Hebrew

Also, If anyone can translate the line above the line that states that Moses
Goldwerth died on August 12, 1916, which I believe is in Czech, that would be
great, too.


It is on ViewMate at

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.

ZALTSMAN/SALTZMAN in USA #ukraine

ztaran@...
 

Hello everyone,

We have recently found out that one of my great-great grandmother's brothers immigrated to the US >from Ukraine prior to the revolution of 1917. We have a photo, but do not know his first name. His last name would be Zaltsman. His siblings were Haika (my great-great grandmother), Zlata, Doba, Mordkhe and Bentsion Zaltsman.

We have a photo of him and his siblings that was taken in 1929. He looks about 50-55 years old. Their parents names were Vol'ko and Hana Zaltsman. All were >from the Vinnitsa region of Ukraine. This photo was taken in 1929, when the brother came back >from the US to Ukraine to visit his family.

We are looking for this brother's descendants in the US. If this could be your ancestor, please let us know! I will send the photo to anyone who is interested. I would imagine his grandchildren could still be alive today and would be in their 70-80ies.

All the best,

A response from State Archive of the Kherson Region needs a translation. #ukraine

I've posted a vital record in Ukrainian for which I need a translation. It is on ViewMate at the following address

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM63312

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

My maternal great-grandmother my mother's mother
[my grandmother]'s mother was named Frieda Zlaktin. Her maiden
(nee) name was Frieda Joseph in English or Frieda Ysaeff the
English translation of the Yiddish. She was born on March 18,
1881, and according to Form 2204-L-A U.S. Department of Labor
IMMIGRATION AND NATURALIZATION SERVICE No. 173838 88 UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA PETITION FOR NATURALIZATION Frieda came from
Cherson, Russia, which I guess today is called Kherson, Ukraine.
I don't know if she came >from the City of Kherson itself or
village in the Kherson, Oblast.

She left Bremen, Germany on the SS Hannover under the name
Freide Issajew and arrived on September 1, 1910, in Baltimore,
Maryland, United States of America. >from Baltimore, she went
to Chicago, where I am currently living.

According to the website for Bremen, Germany, all of the
passenger records during the times I am looking for were destroyed
in WWII.

I am trying to find out how she got >from Kherson to Bremen.

Frieda/Freide mother's name my great-great-grandmother, my
mother's great-grandmother; my grandmother's grandmother's name
was Mollie Joseph in English or Mollie Ysaeff the English
translation of the Yiddish. Mollie's husband, thus my great-
great-grandfather, my mother's great-grandfather, my
grandmother's grandfather's name was Isaac Joseph in English
or Itzchok Ysaeff the English translation of the Yiddish.

Mollie was born January 1, 1861, and Isaac/Itzchok was born
July 20, 1861. It seems the records stop with Mollie and
Isaac/Itzchok. If possible, I would like to find out about
Mollie's relatives as well as Isaac/Itzchok relatives and go
back as far as possible.

from the time I sent the above Monday, November 13 and the
response, I received today Thursday, December 14.

My maternal great-grandmother, my mother's mother
[my grandmother]'s father was named Isaac Zlaktin
(Frieda's husband) was born on October 14, 1888 in Brezin

Russia and Ancestry.com and according to Form 2204-L-A U.S.

which I guess today is either in Ukraine or Poland. I don't
know if he came >from the City of Brezin/Berezen itself or
village in the Brezin Berezen, Oblast.

He left Bremen, Germany on the SS Chemitz on August 18, 1910,
and arrived on September 1, 1910, in Baltimore, Maryland,
United States of America.
