Viewmate - Interpretation of photograph questions & about type of yarmulke #austria-czech

Barrie Karp
 

Dear Researchers,

I've posted an old ancestral photograph of an unidentified relative
probably >from Romania, Hungary, Austria or Poland, probably taken late
19th c., about which photograph I have the following questions. It is
on ViewMate at the following address ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM42935

This may be a photo of one of my great grandfathers -- Yitzak Wien.

Question: significance of the head wear -- is there any different
meaning >from a skullcap type yarmulke? I seek interpretations, clues,
hints, any cultural information, such as locality (town or country),
affiliations, customs, etc.

Question: Can you tell where and when this photo may have been taken?
In the US? In Europe? what town and/or country? there are no markings
on the photo, no clues, but it was kept with photos including one of
woman who may be, and probably is, my great grandmother (wife of the
man in the photograph), Leie/Lea/Lena Berkowitz Wien, born ab. 1860 in
"AustroPoll" and emigrated to US >from Iasi, Romania in 1902; and died
January 1923 in NYC (Bronx), buried in Maspeth, LI by son-in-law and
one of her daughters. The man in this photograph, if he is my great
grandfather Isaac Wien, is said to have not reached the US. There is
an unproven story in the family that he traveled to NYC ahead of his
wife with a sick child and was turned away at Ellis Island because of
the sick child. Their last child was born in Iasi in 1901, and Lea
Wien came to US as widow, November 23, 1902, several months after
three of their children arrived in NY/US in June/July 1902. Two of
their other children arrived in NY >from Iasi: one of them in 1901
(Annie); and one of them in 1900 (Regina, my grandmother). They all
departed >from Rotterdam, as did all my other ancestors who came to
US/NY >from Iasi, Romania.

Question: Can you identify the man in this photograph?

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application or
directly by email.
Thank you very much.

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.
