Watcher To The Sick, East End London, 19th Century #unitedkingdom

Dear All

Levy GROENWOOD (b.1817), also spelt as GROENEWEND and GREENWOOD
was described as a Nurse and Watcher To The Sick in the
1871 and 1881 census. His wife, Julia/Judith (b.1827) was a Sextoness
in 1881. They were living in Goodman's Fields.

Betsy NIEUVENDYK (b.1825), who passed away in Whitechapel, March reg, 1904,
was living with them in 1871 and 1881.

Has anybody researched Levy and his family or know which
Synagogue he and his wife belonged to. Levy was the informant for
Solomon LEWIS/Lewis SOLOMON, who passed away in October, 1867,
105 Leman Street, Whitechapel. Levy's address was 3 Tilley St, Spitafields.

Please contact me on ndogin@bigpond unless you feel the information
may be of interest to others. I had not come across a Sextoness
until now, nor a Watcher to the Sick.

Many thanks to Miriam Margolyes, Marcus Shapiro, Jeannette Rosenberg,
Michael Hoffman, and my cousin Naomi Sachs-Amrami for providing
information about Edith Pick's family. As a result I am in touch with
Marion, who has sent me complete information about her branch, and
through whom I expect to make contact with other branches of the Pick
family. I'm awed and grateful for the quick response to my query.

I am looking for the family of Edith PICK, a cousin of my

She was born in 1908, and when I met her she was already long widowed
from Klaus Pick. They had one daughter Evelyn, born 1930, an optician.
Evelyn married Werner SCHUHMANN and had Marion in 1957 and Jacquelyn
in 1958. Werner died in 1961, and Evelyn remarried Jack TERRY and had
Nicola in 1963. I met Evelyn and Jack when I visited Edith. I believe
they lived south of the Thames, but not sure where.

I've just learned that in addition to Edith Pick's having been a
cousin of my father-in-law, her husband Klaus was related to my
mother-in-law.

I would welcome any information about this family or suggestions about
how to locate them.

Another Success Story Thanks to JGFF---a first cousin, plus a progenitor dating to 1777, found! #romania

Dear Researchers,
The last few weeks have been a genealogical whirlwind. I received an
email >from Diana, a woman in Israel who was researching her family's
surname using the JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF). Because (1) Diana's
maiden surname is very similar to my mother's, and (2) Diana was born in
the capital city of Moldova (despite the distance >from where my mother
was born in Moldova), she decided to contact me. She provided the names
of some of her ancestors, but nothing seemed to match those in my
family. While we were exchanging emails, a volunteer researcher on
another site who was assisting her, got into the act and tried to
figure out whether and how we were related.

Some background material, along with updates---

(1) Two years ago, I hired a Moldovan researcher to look for records
in the National Archives (in Chisinau) with our unusual family name.
She found some, but I did not recognize any given names except one,
Moshko (Moshe). At the time, I had suspicions that my GGF's name was
Moshe, based on the Duma Voters List, but no verification.
UPDATE: Earlier this year, I obtained a photo of my GF's tombstone
and it indicated that his father's name was Moshe.

(2) Three years ago, I was in contact with another Israeli woman,
Ella (whose maiden surname was similar to my mother's),and we tried,
unsuccessfully at the time to figure out the connection. She, too,
was born in Moldova.
UPDATE: I've been in touch with Ella's son, Eddie, who supplied a
copy of a Romanian nationality certificate listing Ella's GF, Leizer,
her father Mendel, and 4 of Mendel's siblings.

(3) Five years ago, I found a Page of Testimony (POT) at Yad Vashem,
for my mother's brother, Aizik, which was filled out by a woman named
Sara (in Israel), whose last name I did not recognize either. The
POT indicated that Sara was the "son-in-law" of my uncle. That was
confusing, to say the least. My mother told me about her brother, Aizik,
who had remained in Moldova, and that I had one cousin named Suzi.
Did Aizik have another child, a male, and was Sara his wife?
UPDATE: Thanks to Diana, we discovered that Sara is my first cousin!
Her nickname in Moldova was "Suzi." I've been in touch with her and
her son Alex.

(4) About 7 years ago, I corresponded with someone named Dan, who
lives in Southampton, UK. He found me using JGFF. His grandmother
Ita's surname matches that of my mother's.
UPDATE: Dan has been in touch with Ella, Diana, and his GM's sister's
grandson in the US, Gershon.

ELLA (son & EDDIE), DIANA and DAN are related.

Jewish Immigrants to Charleston, SC #general

A while back I posted a request for help via the newsgroups on how I could research
a Jewish immigrant to Charleston, SC in about 1866 (my great-grandfather Simon
LESSEL >from Posen, Prussia). My ISP no longer supports newsgroups and thus I no
longer have the positing and its responses.

Thus, I would be grateful to anyone who could help me with how I could research
such an immigrant to Charleston back then.

Re: israeli population registry online #general

To those interested in the Israeli population registry mentioned by Jim Benett --
this registry (for the year 2006) was leaked/hacked into a few years ago, and there
is an investigation still continuing into the incident. The information in the
registry is supposed to be confidential and is not supposed to be publicly
accessible. I heard that following the leak some/many computer-proficient people
obtained/downloaded copies of the registry for themselves, and while some probably
did so for innocuous purposes (like genealogical research) others might have done
so for criminal purposes. I'm not sure where the law stands on people publicising
or making use of the information >from the registry. I'd be interested to know if
anyone comes forward and volunteers information >from the registry publicly!
