Searching: Joseph BANKS/BENKS, Baltimore #general

Jessica Kaplan
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

I'm searching for information on the European origins of my gg
grandfather Joseph BANKS/BENKS, 1865-1907 and his family. He
immigrated in 1881 +/- 2, married Etta Berman in Baltimore in 1888,
and had 4 children Dora, Abraham, Bessie, and Mary. He lived mostly in
Baltimore, but spent some time in West Virginia in the early 1890s.
There is no evidence of a name change.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Re: JOSEPH family, Kirn, Germany > Colombia #general

Lisa Grayson <lisa@...>
 

Barbara Mannlein asked for help with locating "Sally (?Salomon)
(b.1896) and Melitta Stern Joseph and sons Erich (b.1925) and Rolf
(b.1926)."

I found a website for Cementerio Israelita, the Jewish cemetery in
Cali: http://cementeriohebreodecali.com. You can search for headstones
under "búsqueda lápidas":
http://cementeriohebreodecali.com/busqueda-lapidas

I searched for Melitta's name, since it is the most unusual, and found a
photo of her headstone: http://cementeriohebreodecali.com/node/248 . The
Spanish letters are a bit fuzzy in the photo, but it looks as if she was
born 8 June 1898 in Alzen (?) German, and died 28 July 1950.

Since the family's last name is Joseh in the cemetery records, I then
searched the surname under this spelling and found stones for "Sally"
(b. 16 Aug 1897 in Kirn Germany - d. 12 Mar 1961) at
http://cementeriohebreodecali.com/node/242 and Erich (b. 25 May 1925 in
Oberstein, Germany - d. 23 Aug 1973 in Cali) at
http://cementeriohebreodecali.com/node/157 .

Note that the surname is correctly spelled Joseph on Sally, Melitta, and
Erich's Spanish-lanugage stones, even though the name is misspelled in
all three online records. So don't forget to check first names in
databases in case a surname search yields nothing.

The Hebrew Aid Society (Sociedad Hebrea de Socorros) of Cali has an
English website at http://www.sociedadhebrea.com/en/index.html . And
there is a 2005 Spanish article on the Jews in Cali at
http://www.radiojai.com.ar/online/notiDetalle.asp?id_Noticia=12745 .

Good luck -- Buena suerte!

I am aware of several, different entries as well as distinct fonds for a
marriage listed- Jakob Nussbaum and Regina Brenner.
There are several entries in fond 993 and fond 994.
There is also an entry in fond 1004.
Why were there so many entries, with dates of 1905, 1906 and 1909?
In addition, where can I get copies of these records?
Thank you.

(Portugal) Portugal Starts Granting Citizenship Rights to Inquisition Descendants #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Earlier this I year I reported that Portugal had a new law offering dual
citizenship to descendants of Sephardic Jews who were victims of the
Inquisition over 500 years ago. The law became effective February 26, 2015
and as of March 2, 2015 members of the Sephardic Jewish communities of
Portuguese origin were entitled to apply for Portuguese nationality. On
October 2 the Justice Ministry announced they approved the first three of
over 200 applications they received.

Among the successful applicants are Alfonso Paredes Henriquez, a
Panama-based real estate developer, and his brother. Originally they were
going to apply to Spain for the dual citizenship but Spain's law was delayed
-that law was passed in June 2015 and became effective earlier this month.
One of the organizations vetting applications, the Jewish Community of
Oporto in northern Portugal, said Paredes Henriquez is a descendant of
Spanish and Portuguese Jews. His ancestors were Rabbi Eliau Abraham Lopez,
the great Sephardic rabbi of the Spanish-Portuguese community in Curacao and
of Spanish origin, and his wife Rachel Nunes da Fonseca, of Portuguese
origin. The Community issued certificates for Jews >from 23 countries with
two-thirds of them for Sephardic Jews >from Turkey.

With the dual citizenship, the grantees are entitled to a passport and the
right to work and live in the 28-nation European Union.

Bessarabian Cemeteries... where is the list? #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear researchers,

I realized recently that many of our members do not know where at
JewishGen.org to find a list of all Cemeteries indexed or/and photographed.
I received a number of messages asking if we did any work at a such and such
cemetery.

So, let's find out where is a list of all cemeteries:

- go to www.jewishgen.org, and under Databases click on Burial Registry
(JOWBR) - this is where the inventory of all cemeteries worked on.
- The inventory is created by CURRENT countries (you will not find a country
Bessarabia there!).

- Our region as you may know was divided in 20c and now located in TWO
countries: Moldova and Ukraine.

- Country: Moldova (17 cemeteries, 31364 burials). Under Moldova you will
see 2 Regions: Bessarabia (15 cemeteries) and Kherson (2 cemeteries).
- Country: Ukraine, click on Region: Bessarabia (5 cemeteries, 3584
burials) (Actually there are 4 cemeteries: Kilia and Kiliya - the same
town, it is a duplication).

Also keep in mind that JewishGen / JOWBR updates the website two times a
year, the FOUR cemeteries we completed in August and September will appear
in JOWBR and on that list in the beginning of 2016. For these cemeteries
you can see Cemetery reports, also Unknown Graves at Bessarabia SIG website.

I suggest to read Bessarabia SIG Monthly updates, other postings where you
may find new information about cemetery projects in progress.

There are total of about 70 cemeteries where Jews were buried in
Bessarabia/Moldova, and with your help we will index and photograph ALL of
them in a near future!

Here are also 2 rules we developed:
1) If you want to get a full LIST of burials in a cemetery we completed, for
a donation of $100, you will get it, and also if you find your ancestors, we
will send you photos, sometimes we may have 2-3 photos of a gravestone, and
JOWBR will display of course only one. We can send you this even before the
index/photos appear at JOWBR.
I should say that many people made donations and received the complete list
and photos.

2) If your cemetery IS NOT yet completed and the work is not in progress,
you can INITIATE a new cemetery project by collecting among people you may
know or related to that town, about 30% of approximate cost (we are paying
for photos).
I should say that majority of cemetery projects started in 2014-2015 are
done this way.

Of course if you cemetery is in work, please make a donation. You can find
Bessarabia-Moldova Cemetery project at the donation list, and also there are
several other cemetery projects on that list.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

All the best,

Understanding connection in Revision List #lithuania

Hi

In the Revision List of 1834 for KHAIT >from Birzai, Lithuania there is a
family group that I am trying to understand.

It lists Abe KHAIET as the head of the household with Berel MORIL and his
wife Rokhel MORIL followed by 2 young children Soro Dine KHAIET and Girsh
KHAIET (both children of Berel).

Abe KHAIET died 1831. So a possible connection could be that Rokhel
Moril was married previously to Abe KHAIET

Can anyone speculate as to the connection between the KHAIET and MORIL
families and also between the children to Abe KHAIET and/or Berel and
Rokhel MORIL

Thanks
Julian Peerutin
