Seeking MESSER relatives from Galicia #poland

David Ellis
 

I'm looking for living descendants of the siblings of my g-gm Gittel MESSER
(1866-1914). The MESSER family came >from the town of Rozdol in Galicia.
Gittel's brother Israel married Marjem WEINSTOK, moved to the nearby town of
Zydaczow and had three children: Ettel (1902), Jenta (1904) and Lea (1906).
Gittel's brother Moses Jakob married Jente KIKON, moved to Stryy and had two
children: Chane (1908) and Chaim Samuel (1909). Gittel's brother Leib
married Jente's sister Chaje (or Chane) and had four children in Stryy: Perl
(1906), Abraham Joel (1908), Chaim Samuel (1909) and Chaje Teme (1911). I
did not find any immigration records for these nine first cousins of my gm,
nor did I see anything in the Yad Vashem database. Can somebody help me find
out what happened to these lost cousins? Thanks in advance!

ViewMate translation request - Yiddish #bessarabia

sheldon gitis <sgitis@...>
 

My grandfather, Yidl Gitses, born in 1898 in Bessarabia, later known as Adolph Gitis in the
United States, wrote something on about 60 large note cards shortly before his death in 1971.
At the time he wrote this, my grandfather's body and mind were not in the best of shape - so
there's no telling what it says. I think the writing is in Yiddish; maybe Hebrew. Please respond
via the form provided in the ViewMate application if you might be able to provide some
translation. Thank you very much.

Re: ships from Danzig #general

Carlos Glikson
 

Roberta Sheps mentioned the ship her great-grandmother sailed on >from Danzig to
Canada as being the "Vedic", and wonders about possible spelling errors in the
transcription.

The "Ships & Fleets" link at Steve Morse's very powerful One Step search tools
webpage http://stevemorse.org/
leads to Stephen P. Morse's & Susan E. Swiggum's "Obtaining Details about Ships and
/or Fleets in One Step" http://stevemorse.org/swiggum/fleets.html

A search there gives one 1917 Vedic (with a maiden voyage as a troopship, but
refitted for commercial service in 1920 and sailing as such at compatible dates for
Roberta's great grandmother trip) described under http://www.theshipslist.com/

Additional info for this same White Star Line "Vedic" appears under
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Vedic

It's a "possible". The short descriptions do not mention Danzig (which does not
mean Vedic never sailed >from there, at least once...) but do mention Canada, and
Halifax.

How did surname become SANDLER? #ukraine

Andrea Dechter
 

Hello,

I'm wondering how my GF Hyman Sandler came by his surname. His NY death record lists his father as Moshe Wolf and his mother as Gishe Davidovitch. Hyman's immigration papers show him as entering NY in 1913 as Chaim Sandler >from Russia. I believe he was >from Zhytomyr (now Ukraine).

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

was "Manhatten Death Record" David Braunstein #general

Steve Pickoltz
 

To all the many Geners that answered my post on David Braunstein, thank you.

My hope that Braunstein was a misspelling of BERNSTEIN was for naught. My intention
was to find a possible death record for my grand father's brother, David BERNSTEIN.
What I knew was he came with his family and other relatives on May 9, 1890 aboard
the SS Russia and landed in NYC. His age was 11 months. This was according to the
ship's manifest. Any kind of death record could list his name as BERNSTEIN or
BERNSTEIN-WERFEL or the other way around. I know the family was in NYC as late as
June/July of 1890 when they bought land in the southern part of New Jersey and then
went there.

My problem is that other than the ship's manifest, there is no record of him that
I can find. The fact is I don't know where he died.

Any help, suggestions I'm open to. I do have more info if that would help on the
other members of this family.

Thank you again.

KURETZKES FROM VILNA #lithuania

Brentsi
 

Shalom,

In the year 1898 ITZKO KURETZKES (father: Gdalyash) married GNENDEL
LIKHTMAKHER (father Meir) both born in Vilna.

Both were widowed and Gnendel was firstly wedded to a Mr Karpis, secondly to
Izrail Yokelson and thirdly to Izko Kuretzkes (surname spelt as such on the
archived lists for Vilna.)

Gnendel was my paternal grandmother's sister. The surname LIKHTMAKHER was
eventually changed to LIGHTMAN in England.

I cannot find any further information about Itzko and Gnendel Kuretzkes and
would be interested if anyone has the names on their family trees. I should
be pleased to make contact with Kuretzkes originating >from Vilna.

Sincerely,
Brenda Habshush. Sde Boker.Israel

(Researching Likhtmakher: Vilna. Bernstein:Kremenchug. Viner: Riga.)

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Please respond privately with family information.
Suggestions for research methods or resources may be shared with
the list.
