JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Changing surname in Canada #general

Marcia Indianer Meyers <marciarthur@...>
 

Greetings,
I'm researching a relative who came to Toronto in 1929. He became a
citizen in 1936. In the 1950's he changed his surname.
Legally how does a person change ones surname in Canada? If I want
his naturalization documents and showed a photo of his tombstone,it
does not show his original surname, his passenger list does.

Thank you for any information,
Marcia Indianer Meyers

Hello all
My research continues! I have recently discovered half siblings of my
husband's grandfather who were all born in Lithuania and this took me
further to the Shoah database as one of these half siblings received an
internal passport and a visa to Palestine in 1935.
In my search I found all but this sister had died in 1942 in the Holocaust
as she was the one to submit the pages of testimony.

The names she submitted were Sevelovic (we spelt it Shevelovich) but her own
name was given as Ada SHABLOVITZ but nowhere does it say in what part of
Israel she was living.

I have two elderly relatives -- her niece and nephew -- here in Australia who
would like to know how and where she ended her days so if any of you in
Israel know this name at all and perhaps anything about her I would be
thrilled to hear.

It is always a long shot but I have been so often surprised and excited by
everyone's help that it is worth a try.

Thank you

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Trying to Honor Righteous Gentile in Dubno, Ukraine #ukraine

My grandmother is alive at age 95 because of a family in Dubno, Ukraine
(formerly Poland) named Kucharewicz or Kucharowicz.

My grandmother asked that I do some searching on the Internet to see if
we can locate this family. Unfortunately, I don't speak any Russian and
can't even look up the name in a phone book.

There was a woman named Maria Kucharewicz or Kucharowicz. Her and her
husband helped my bubbe escape >from the Dubno Ghetto. Mr. Kucharowicz
was operating a restaurant in Dubno. The family was Catholic and
Ukrainian and they had several children including boys. They are most
certainly no longer alive, however their children may be.

If anyone has access to a Ukrainian phone book and can look up these
names in the Dubno area of Ukraine I would appreciate it. I can be
reached at Genealogykid20@... .

Thanks,

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine kreslapelko - town? #ukraine

Hello,
I am trying to locate a town called Kreslapelko. I found some papers from
my great grandfather, which say he was born there. It is written in two
places and the handwriting is pretty clear. I can't find any record
anywhere on the internet of a town with a name even closely related to
that.
He later lived in Rzhyschiv, which is why I am thinking it would be in
Ukraine. Also, his last name was Konefsky, and there is a nearby town
called Kanev, so that is another possible reason for putting it in the
Ukraine. Poring over the map, I did find a shtetl in a town called
Krasnopilka --- also in that vicinity. Does anyone have any insights?
Thanks in advance!
Best,
Roni

Hi all,

I'm wondering if there were any economic or sociological connections
between these two towns. I believe different branches of my maternal
grandmother's family (LISNITZER) lived in both towns so I'm curious
what factors might have caused them to move >from Mogilev Podolskiy to
Kamenets Podolskiy.

Thanks.

Issue #111 of Genealo-J,, Journal of the French Jewish Genealogical Society #germany

Georges Graner <georges.graner@...>
 

Genealo-J , publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France, Issue 111, Fall 2012

This issue begins with a report on the 32th IAJGS International
Conference on Jewish Genealogy that our society organized in Paris last
July. The paper reports the headaches of the preparation, the concerns
with the financial balance and the choice of topics for the lectures. At
the end, many attendees have expressed their satisfaction with this
Conference. Note that several of the lectures are published in the
present issue of Avotaynu.

In « Jewish life in Belfort during the 19th century », Marie Fey writes about the Jews
living in Belfort who came >from many villages ofsouthern Alsace. During the 19th
century, they were able to assimilate to the local bourgeoisie while keeping their own
rural kind of judaism. They had many children to whom they usually gave biblical names
and who took only Jewish spouses. The author focuses on three representative
families, the LEHMANN, the BRUNSCHWIG, and the GRUMBACH to exemplify this model.

Bernard Lyon-Caen was puzzled by the surname HINSTIN which was unknown
in France before the Revolution. He discovers that it comes >from an
Alsatian family called EINSTEIN (not related to Albert Einstein). One of
its members went to Paris and within a few years around 1798, he changed
his name successively into HAINSTEIN, HAINSTHEIN and finally HINSTIN.
Notorious characters the wore the name in its new form, including a
general, an historian of the literature of Antiquity and industrialists
akin to Citroen. The author details their genealogy and gives many
biographies.

Having found on the Mormon website the will (New York 1918) of a Léonie
Brile nee FRIBOURG, Anne-Marie Fribourg wanted to find how she was
related to this family. Her research was made difficult by lack of
precision of dates and changes of given names. She was able to
reconstruct the fate of this family who settled in the USA in the middle
of the 19th century. It originates >from the French Lorraine and can be
tracked up to Isacq FRIBOURG, born ca. 1674, an ancestor of the author.

Under the title « She was not a hidden child », Giacomo Nunez tells us
about his partner Perla, born >from Polish parents and brought up in
Paris. She was 14 when, unlike her mother and her sister, she escaped
the Vel d’Hiv round up in 1942. She succeeded in crossing the
Demarcation line to join her uncles and her brother at Limoux in
southern France. One of her uncles was caught and deported and the rest
of the family fled to Switzerland. But Perla remained in Limoux as a
student, never hid she was a Jew and nobody ever denounced her. She lost
at least 48 persons of her family during the Holocaust.

Daniel Vangheluwe explains how he found data on Polish people >from
Przytyk and Kadlub in the province of Radom…………

[Reply to group because of technical interest]

Although the family spelled its name in Cyrillic first and in Hebrew
letters most recently, the usual Latin-alphabet spelling was Wissotzky.

Searches for trees and those who own or keep them will be much easier in
this light.
