Looking for information re Rosa Emanuel STERN 1879-1951 and Nathan STERN (1877-1941) #general

RsH <robert.heuman@...>
 

Rosa Emanuel STERN was the mother of my father's older brother, Hermann
HEUMANN's, wife, Hedwig STERN (1913-1982).

I am trying to find out when Rosa went >from Germany to Shanghai, China,
which I suspect was 1938 or 1939, and when she emigrated >from Shanghai
to New York, which I suspect was 1947 or 1948. I would also like to know
the name of the ship she used to come to the U.S. She was born June 6,
1879 in Olpe, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany.

[I have searched for Rosa STERN and for Rosa Emanuel coming to the U.S.
and have not had any success with those searches to date.]

I would also like more information about her husband, Nathan STERN, who
was born Jan 3, 1877 in Meinerzhagen, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany, and
died in 1941. I do not know if he died in Germany or in Shanghai. He had
9 siblings, and I only know the names of two of them, Emma and Jakob,
who both died in 1921. His father was Levi STERN (1833-1919) and his
mother was Henriette EMANUEL (1839-?).

While I suspect that Rosa EMANUEL and Henriette EMANUEL were related, I
do not know the relationship, and would appreciate it if anyone can fill
in the blanks for that relationship if it exists. Since they are 40
years apart by age, I suspect Rosa was a niece of Henriette, but I do
not have any details on the Emanuel family of Olpe, Germany.

Thanks in advance,

Greetings.

I have information that says that Fivish (Feivel) WOLF, a second cousin
of mine, who fought in WWII, is buried in the Holon Cemetery in Tel
Aviv. He died in 1983. The tombstone should indicate, "Fivish son of
Bezalel".

Is there someone who could take a picture (jpg?) of his tombstone for
me? Thank you.

New Project: Bessarabian Newspapers from 1850s to 1940 #bessarabia

Dear researchers,

After 2014 conference in Salt Lake City, I contacted Alla Chastina to order
copies of Bessarabian Newspapers >from Moldovan Archive.

I decided to start >from the earliest: 1856, Bessarabskie Oblastnye
Vedomosti. As I mentioned before these newspapers are filled with
information on our descendants, >from Business Ads, to Conscription lists, to
Jewish cultural events, to obituaries, house sales, court cases, and more.

Here is a sample >from #1 Newspaper, 1856, 7 January
Soroky-Yassy court approved a sale #97, for which petty bourgeois ISAK
Matvey son of Alexander sold to Zhitomir petty bourgeois, a Jews, SHAFIR
Khaim son of Iosif a wooden house.... <with details, costs, etc. how much
taxes the court took, etc.>

Or another one, 1856, August 11
USOSKIN, Moshko son of Beniamin, Kiliya Merchant of 3rd Gild, on July 26,
1856 declared to Kiliya Town Hall that he lost luggage during his passing in
Tiraspol. It was lost >from a carriage, and it had cloths, money and
passport, given him by Killia Town hall in March 1856. If anywhere the
Passport will be found, consider it is not valid

You can see an idea of what we may find in these newspapers.

The project now at the Donation list project for Bessarabia SIG, and we need
to collect money to pay for the copies. Please donate to this project.

We also need a Project Manager for it and translators with Russian language
skills.

Send your comments, suggestions.

Help with a Hungarian first name #general

Hi all,

My grandmother told me of a Hungarian relative whose first name was Farkas.
I found records of an Isaak who seems like he could be Farkas. Can anyone
tell me about the name Farkas? Could it be a nickname for Isaak?

Thanks.

I think that Tim is entirely correct. I cannot speak for all Livery
Companies but certainly my Livery Company, The Tallow Chandlers, had such an
oath to be taken. The need for this was abolished a long time ago and it
might be an interesting avenue of research.
If anyone is interested please contact me and we could see whether we can
make some progress.

Subject: [jcr-uk] Jewish Watchmakers and the Worshipful Company of
Clockmakers in London

Greetings SIG members, a number of my ancestors were watchmakers who
migrated to London in the 19th Century >from Poland and Germany.

I was considering looking through the records of the Worshipful Company of
Clockmakers for more information but I've read that Jewish tradesmen were
not able to join the guilds as they were required to take a Christian oath.
Is this correct and does this mean there's no point looking through the
records?

They all seemed to have their places of business in the East End.

Some of my watchmakers are:
* Solomon HENRY (aka Henry SOLOMONS) born Germany about 1787
* Angel/Asher Levy CASPER possibly born in Holland about 1762
* Lewis LEVY/CASPER born London about 1778
* Nathan LEVY/CASPER born London about 1783
* Ellis/Elias CASPER (transported to Australia for the Gold Dust
Robbery) born London 1784
* Philip Nathan CASPER born London about 1827

Thanks for any help,
