bio of Israeli businessman HALEVI from 1960s #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Hoping someone can help me with some bios/info of an Israeli businessman
named Meir HALEVI. (I have also seen it spelled Meyer but I think that
is a poor translation.)

I am mostly interested in a bio that details his business and what
happened to him. I am not necessarily trying to build his whole family
tree but interested in his heritage and life story.

I know he had a shipping company called Somerfin which failed in the
1960s causing a bit of a sensation in Israel.

Thanks for any help/suggestions.

Need help solving a mystery #general

Julia Lombardo <julialombardo@...>
 

Hi genners!

I am hoping someone out there is a better sleuth than me, because I've
exhausted everything I could and cannot find the family I am looking
for.

I am researching Morris FROOMIN (probably FRUMIN originally) a
shoemaker. Morris was born 15 Apr 1897, and arrived in the US around
1915. Morris married Rose WILNER (nee GOLDSTEIN) (2nd marriage for Rose)
04 Aug 1931 in Jackson, Missouri. Rose had a son >from a previous
marriage, Melvin. Morris died in San Francisco in 29 Apr 1958 (mother's
maiden name listed as STALIN).

I know everything about Morris after his marriage to Rose, ** but ** I am
having a real hard time tracing him prior to his marriage to Rose.

I have a reason to believe that Morris was married once before. I found
what I think is his WWI Draft Record >from Chicago. It gave his birthdate
as 15 Mar 1894. Address was 2629 Crystal (?) Street. Employed by
O'Connor and Goldberg. ** And ** it says he is supporting a ** mother **
and ** wife **!

He is also listed as an Alien.

Then, there is a 1930 Census record for Morris, in Drumright Oklahoma.
The record is transcribed as Morris T. Troomin. Morris is living alone,
and it says he is Naturalized and Single.

I can't find a 1920 census. What I would really like to find is Morris'
mother ... supposedly named Leah.

I did find a 1922 City Directory for Kearney, Nebraska ... which I believe
is my Morris again. Lists him as a Shoe Maker ... address: 119 W 28th.

I would really appreciate any help you can offer. My main goals are to
find Morris' mother ... and hopefully find out where she died. I believe
that she is a cousin or aunt of my maternal grandfather's mother!

My second goal, not so critical is to find out who Morris was married
to, prior to marrying Rose.

Thank you all!!!!!

Re: Name "Gnendel" #general

I wish to thank everyone who responded, both on-line and off, to my
question about the name "Gnendel." One off-line responder noted that
this had been a topic of discussion previously, and suggested that I
check the archived Discussion Group messages. I did, and, indeed,
found a most comprehensive and enlightening discussion of the origin
and meaning of the name. So I thank her for reminding me of that
excellent JewishGen resource.

If you search on the archives, for Genendel and maybe
Geneshe (various spellings of both are possible) you'll find a
long and interesting thread about the meaning of the names,
including, I think, some varying opinions.

I remember this because Genendel is my Yiddish name, too.

Seeking middle name in Hebrew #general

natrab@...
 

Morris Jacob BIENENSTOCK (Moshe Yaacov), who married Fannie (Fayge)
PLATZMAN was a founder of Beth El synagogue in Borough Park, NY.
Their son, Arthur Herbert Bienenstock, passed away recently in NYC
(May 3rd), aged 96.

Arthur Herbert Bienenstock was born in Borough Park., Brooklyn, NY.
He attended the Etz Chayim Yeshiva.

His children know that he was called Aharon ben Moshe Ya'acov haLevi,
but think they are missing a middle name in Hebrew to correspond to
Herbert.

Where might we find his full Hebrew name (if there was a "middle" name, too)?

Thanks for any suggestions/answers.

Re: Researching: HEINISCH, Felix #general

Dave Strausfeld <davestra@...>
 

One possibility to consider is that he was not allowed into the USA.

Usually at the end of the passenger manifest for any ship there is a
listing of the people who were detained or sent back for one reason
or another (e.g. convicts, other people deemed unfit). So I don't know
if you'll find anything but it's worth scrolling to the end of the
passenger manifest and looking at those last pages.

Hi,
do any of these surnames sound familiar to you? I have a document, and
the surname (written in Russian) is not that clear. It look like it's
Dishman. However, I don't know if there are Jews who carry these
names. The other variations also could fit (Dishmok, Dilman and
Dilmok). Best regards
