KehilaLink website forTown of Tarutino, Bessarabia #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear researchers,

I am working now on a KehilaLink website for town of Tarutino, Bessarabia,
now in Akkerman district, Odessa Oblast of Ukraine.

The town has an interesting history. It first was established as German
colony in 1814, and Jews were allowed there at the last part of 19c, and it
had almost 2000 Jews in 1897. I found some information already, including
an old map with Jewish Cemetery right in center of Town.

The other town's name was Antchikrok or Anchiocrac.

If you have any photos, old and new of the town, Family stories - I know
that there are a number of families related to that town, Family trees,
Travel stories, old maps, etc. please let me know.

I am looking forward to hear >from you.

Seeking information about Isidor(e) RUBINSTEIN #general

Barbara Musikar
 

Isidor RUBINSTEIN married my father's cousin, Mollie PADWA, in Minneapolis,
MN on June 22, 1913. She had probably met him in New York and joined him in
Minneapolis. I was told that Isidor worked for the railroad, but I have no
idea which railroad employed him. I also looked on the Railroad Retirement
Indexes, but did not locate his record.

Mollie and Isidor had a son named David. Supposedly Mollie died in 1918 of
influenza. I have tried to find Isidor and David on the census in
Minneapolis, but was unable to do so. I also looked in New York, but there
were too many people with his name. I was told that Isidor did not keep in
touch with Mollie's family after her death.

Looking for Samuel Wolf PADWA and his wife Rosa in Berlin 1900-1938 #general

Barbara Musikar
 

I am looking for information about my father's first cousin, Samuel Wolf
PADWA and his wife Rosa.

Samuel was born in Zascinose, then in Galicia, in Nov, 1884. Unlike his
younger siblings who emigrated to the U. S. he emigrated to Berlin,
Germany where he owned a few confectionery shops. One of these shops
was on Markgrafenstr and another was on Potsdamerstr. His name or the
names of other family members appear in the Berlin Address Book >from
1916 to 1939.

I was told many years ago that he remained in Berlin and went into
hiding. I do not know what happened to his wife or child(ren). I was
told that he later perished. I was wondering if he married Rosa in
Berlin and whether his name appears on the police lists that were kept for
new residents.

Detained at Ellis Island #general

Myrna Goodman
 

I have discovered that my paternal grandfather David OSTROWSKY and
grandmother were detained at Ellis Island on June 8, 1906 following
their arrival on the SS Columbia. The ship originated in Antwerp.

The notation on the document gives the following information: "s-i-l
Dora BEROLOWSKY with a NYC address: 17 Essex".

I have been unable to find the original manifest of the Columbia to
find additional information about them.

I know that my grandmother was very close to delivering my Aunt Anne
and she was born in NYC on June 17th 1906. I have also been
unsuccessful in finding a record of her birth.

The family emigrated to Chicago and my grandfather changed the family
name to OSOFF on his naturalization application.

I would be most grateful for any assistance in locating more
information about my grandparents.

so you can have your own local library submit a request for the

scan or photograph them yourself). (Note that I am not sure if this
applies to irreplaceable rare items, such as what you describe.) For
information, go to nli.org.il, click on English, click on Library,

click on English, click on Library, click on services, and then click
on Online Forms. This is intended for getting single articles for

help with city names #bessarabia

T <magpiejunkin@...>
 

Hello,
I am researching my husband's family who came to America 1913-1921. I am having trouble
connecting what's written on ship passenger lists to today's cities. Any help is greatly appreciated!

A 1913 Passenger List for Ellis Island lists my husband's great grandparents' (Josef and Sprintza
TABAK changed to TOBACK in US) home address as Kiechinev. The Tabak's list their home country
on various documents (census, ship records, naturalization records) as sometimes >from Russia and
sometimes >from Romania. The wife immigrated later than the husband. Her 1920 NY Passenger
List shows her last permanent residence as Kiscburg, Roumania and Kistova, Roumania as place of
birth and lists her father as >from Kitchenic, Roumania. I know that it was common to have bizarre
spellings of town names on passenger lists and at Ellis Island. My husband's relatives often spoke
only Yiddish. A French or German speaking person writing the passenger list would spell the city
name as they heard it. Thus great variations in spellings. So, I'm trying to figure out if Kitchenic and
Kiechinev are the same place, which I think is Kishinev (in Bessarabia section of Russia, then Romania,
now (Chisinau, Moldova). Also, I can't figure out where Kiscburg, Roumania and Kistova, Roumania
might be.

Grandfather Josef SZAFRACH (changed to SCHAFFER in US) lists Wickimez, Poland as birthplace on a
1921 NY Passenger List and Wlatzninez, Poland is listed as his last residence). On various documents
he describes himself as >from Russia (1925 NY census) or Poland (1930, 1940 census). On his 1945
Army discharge form his birthplace is listed as Ludmir, Poland. He was a member of the Ludmir
Association. I can't figure out where Wickimez and Wlatzninez are.

Great grandfather Hersch SZOFRACH/SZAFRACH lists his home country as Poland (WWII draft card
and 1930 census where he lists both parents as born in Poland) and Russia (1914 NY Passenger
List and 1925 NY census). His residence is listed as Nastele, Russia on the 1914 Hamburg Passenger
List. It was also spelled as Nastile on a different document. I can't figure out where Nastele is.

Great grandmother Machna SZOFRACH/SZAFRACH lists Tyszowio (or Tyszcwic-- hard to read writing),
Poland as birthplace on 1921 NY Passenger List. I think this is Tyszowce (in Lublin province), Poland.
What do you think? Last residence is listed as Wlatzninez, Poland on the 1921 NY Passenger List. She
described herself as >from Russia (1925 NY census) and Poland (1930 census where she she lists both
parents as being born in Poland).

Thanks for your help.
