I tried a number of "Jewish sounding names" and came up with many hits.
According to Wikipedia, Jews have been in Ireland for nearly a thousand
years. While always a small community it is an established community. In
addition, a number of Jews immigrated to Ireland in the late 19th and 20th
centuries whose families were >from central Europe, due to the pogroms, and
especially >from Lithuania. Jews also stopped in Ireland along the way to
immigrating to North America-and may have lived there for a few years. You
never know what an Irish census or ships manifest may reveal!

Re: Botosoni in Austrian Empire #romania

LucR <luc.radu@...>
 

There is no error. Being under foreign protection (Austrian, Russian,
Greek, French, etc) is found until ca 1900, though its relevance was not
in general important. In earlier times, say until mid 1870 it did have
advantages, taxation etc. It did not necessarily imply place of origin
since people with means could have bought it >from corresponding Consulate.

He died in Dade County, Florida but I can't seem to pull up a death notice for him.

Immigrant passports #general

I have been told that immigrants didn't need passports in the early 20th Century,
yet a Genner has written that she has a passport for a relative >from 1920. My
grandfather emigrated to the U.S in 1907, but returned to Russia via sailing to Great
Britain in 1917. Would he have needed a passport in 1917? He died in Russia, and I
can't locate any photo or information about him.

Regarding Connie White's question:

A useful tool is http://www.nycmarriageindex.com. It showed the marriage of two
women named Deanne Spitzer but none named Andreanne. Once you get the information,
you can keep reading this digest to find people willing to go into Manhattan or
another borough to get copies of the marriage license since the search reveals the
license number. I have also found relatives on Facebook even after they were

Seeking info on Frances BASKIN GORELICK of Illinois, then Detroit in 1930s-1940s #general

Stephen Cohen
 

Decades ago, my late grandmother told me of a cousin named Frances, born in
Illinois, whose mother (maiden name COOPERMAN) was a relative of my KUPERMAN family
from Goworowo and environs, northeastern Poland; the father's name was unknown. I
had no more information than this. This weekend I finally discovered the following
person:
Francis (sometimes Fannie) BASKIN, born in 1915 somewhere in Illinois to Sara(h)
COOPERMAN and George BASKIN, both born in "Russia", may be a distant relative on my
KUPERMAN side.

Her father died between 1915 and 1920 (as per 1920 US Census), and the mother, Sara
COOPERMAN BASKIN, remarried Morris KAPLOVITZ and moved >from Illinois to Detroit,
Michigan by 1930 (as per 1930 US Census). In the 1930s Frances married Jack
GORELICK in Detroit (marriage application shows COOPERMAN as mother's maiden name).
By 1940 Morris KAPLOVITZ also passed away, and Sara used the BASKIN surname again
(as per US Census).

I am seeking Sara COOPERMAN BASKIN KAPLOVITZ's gravestone, death certificate,
immigration record, or even a marriage application to determine Sara's parents'
names (and explore the COOPERMAN link to my family).

If anyone has any knowledge of these people, please contact me. I have asked my
elderly relatives (not of the COOPERMAN side) with ties to Detroit, and they do not
recall this family.

Thanks,

Germany - Weitz surname #general

Debra Jett <JettStream@...>
 

Hello All,

My name is Debra Jett, Brighton, MI. I am conducting research on JewishGen
in regard to the Weitz surname. I am attempting to locate my great, great,
great grandparents that would have been left behind when my great, great
grandfather, Adam Weitz, (their son) immigrated to the U.S. through New York
in 1846 ending up in Detroit, MI. (A lot of greats there!) My great, great
grandfather, Adam Weitz was born about 1824 in (Bavaria) Germany. I have
located another Adam Christian Weitz born in 1827; however, this is not the
same person. Once in the U.S., Adam Weitz then came to Detroit, MI and
settled there. He married Wilhelmine Luise Witzler who was born 10.22.1824
in Hessen-Darmstadt, Germany. I am pretty well set after this period for
this branch of the Weitz family. I have done extensive research on
Ancestry.com but cannot obtain any further information about my great, great
grandfather Adam Weitz or his descendants who did not leave Germany. There
are several important puzzles/questions that I am trying to solve/answer:
1)Is our family of Ashkenazi Jewish descent?; 2) Who was left behind? Family
members and parents?; 3) Of those left behind, are there any still remaining
in Germany and elsewhere? I would like to make contact with them; 4) If this
Weitz family is of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, why didn't they continue their
faith in the U.S.? The Weitz name can be linked and found in Germany,
Prussia, Poland, Romania, and Russia. I've located many persons with the
Weitz surname who perished in the Holocaust or were relocated after the war;
I do not know if these were my relatives. Thank you to anyone who might
have information and insight into my search for clues to my ancestors.

MODERATOR NOTE: If you have not yet listed your family on the JewishGen Family
Finder (JGFF), you might want to consider doing that. The JGFF is a database of

jewish cemeteries in Hungary #hungary

renato mannheimer
 

My ggf was born in Ocs (Vezprem county Hungary) in 1833. As he had his
first child in Ocs in 1860, I suppose that his parents died there. But
how can I find where they were buried? Ocs is a little town (200
inhabitants) and I don’t think (although I should verify) that there is
a jewish cemetery there.What was the use in these times? If there was no
jewish cemetery in the town of death, were jewa buried in a cemetery of
a larger town? Is there a list of jewish cemeterie in Hungary?
Thank you for your help and excuse may bad english
