Looking for records from Cong. Adath Israel NYC circa 1895 #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Do the records for Congregation Adath Israel located on 57th Street in New York City
in 1895 still exist? I am trying to locate the Hebrew name of a bride and I am
hoping they kept a register.

Thank you.

Re: Divorced in the U.S., but not married in the U.S. #general

Liz Hanellin
 

Hello all,

I recently posted asking about my g-grandparents divorce and my g-grandmother's
subsequent remarriage. I wanted to give you an update.

Thanks to the help and advice of several people on this list, I was able to locate
my g-gm Rebecca and her second husband Louis, living with my HANELLIN grandparents
in the 1930 census. The transcriptions of their last names was very "creative" and
this was an instance where wildcard searching came to the rescue (thank you,
Johanna!) -- HANELLIN was spelled Hanelben, and POPKIN was spelled Tapken! Learning
from the 1930 census that Popkin's first name was Louis helped me also find them in
the 1925 NYS census, listed as Poppin, and with Rebecca's first name listed as
Beccie (another creative spelling).

This narrows my searching for divorce and (re)marriage records >from twenty years
(1920-1940) down to five (1920-1925)! Incidentally, Rebecca's birthdate was Nov.25,
1881 and she died on Nov. 1 1962. I have conflicting birthdates for her first
husband, Philip SCHANES -- Aug. 1876 (death certificate) and March 10, 1875
(Social Security), but I know he died on Aug 7, 1945. Louis POPKIN seems to have
been about four years older than Rebecca, but I have no confirmed dates. It turns
out that Rebecca and Philip are both buried in Beth David Cemetery in Elmont, NY,
but not near each other and with different burial societies.

Many thanks for your help!

Best,
Liz Hanellin

Ladyzhin is in the Podolia Guberniya of the Russian Empire. It is not
particularly close to Kamyanets-Podilskiy. Its regional capital in 1900 was
Gaysin and it is now in the Vinnitsya oblast. The town page can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Ukraine/GEO_town.asp?id=255, which will give you
more information about the town. We do not have a Town Leader for Ladyzhin.

German Jewish Survivors: Mischlingen #germany

Lande
 

I have just come across a typed list of nearly 200 German Jewish male
survivors (mostly under the age of 45) who were held near the end of the war
at an obscure forced labor camp located in Sitzensdorf in Thuringia. (There
are also a few French and Dutch survivors) This list is of particular
interest to me since all were Mischlingen, which I am also. The list
consists of names and dates of birth with no further information, though
from other sources available to me at the USHMM, I can can almost certainly
locate places of birth and, in many cases, what happened to them after the
war.

I would appreciate the help of perhaps two volunteers (with good eyesight)
to enter the names into an Excel spreadsheet. I would then
proofread/compare the data with other lists for accuracy. After the list is
posted, if researchers wanted additional information on individuals I would
be happy to provide it.

Ladyzhyn #ukraine

I recently interviewed my great-aunt, who told me that her parents
were >from Ladyzhyn "in the state of Kamanetz Patoft (??)." Either she
meant Kamanetz Podolskiy, or a state of Kamanetz Patoft existed in the
late 1800s, when they were born. If anyone could help me out with
this, I would surely appreciate it.

is really Podolskiy.

1913 Group Photo - Washington or Baltimore? #general

Judy Floam <jfloam@...>
 

We found a group picture in my late in-laws' house. It is about 200 people
in an organization and the picture is labelled: 7th Anniversary, E.L. Branch
67, W.G., Feb. 16, 1913. There is a name in the lower right hand corner, N.
Shulman, which we assume is the photographer's. It was probably taken in
Washington DC or Baltimore.

Does any of this ring a bell with anyone?

Thank you in advance,

First off, Alevy could also be Ha'Levy and is the same as only Levy.
I'm also looking for clues for the Levy family >from Bitola or Monastir. My
great grandfather was called Avraham and his wife was Yafa and they had an
only daughter Hana. They immigrated to Jerusalem via Salonika.
Found a prayer book (siddur) were he wrote his name as Abraham Todo Roso

I am hoping that someone might be able to assist me. We are looking for
someone who might do research in the area which is now know as Bitola,
Macedonia. When my family was there it was known as Monastir, part of the
Ottoman Empire, also known as Salonika. My family name is ALEVY.
My gggrandfather was Morris and he had a son Dan Moshe. There was also a
son Joseph, whom we know very little. We know that there was inter cousin
marriage and are trying to make the connections. We would be interested in
any contacts that are available and what we would need to do to work with
them.
