Re: 1,267 Names starting with M .... have been indexed. [Thank you Peter Lande!] #germany

Irene Peters <iupfamilyresearch@...>
 

Dear Peter,

First off, happy birthday! Secondly, I would like to take that
opportunity to thank you once again for the help you have given me
over the years. Thanks to you, I was able to find not one but two
relatives who otherwise might have remained lost to the Holocaust -
Margarete Schiff and Rudolf Jaffe. To this day, whenever I come across
their names in my tree, I also think of you.

As a small way of giving back, I participated in your project for the
1933 German Jews Database a few years ago, and hopefully was able to
contribute just a little bit to putting together information for
others who are still trying to find their loved ones or attempting to
connect to their family history before and during the Shoah.

Thanks again, Peter. You helped so many people through your work, I am
sure a lot of them are joining me in wishing you a very happy 86th
birthday!

Kind regards,

Irene Peters, Berlin, Germany, @Melu

KehilaLinks pages to the sites around your town. The web pages for each

JACOBSONs in Latvia or Lithuania #general

Avi Lichtenstein
 

I am currently researching the family of my 2nd ggf Jacob (Jankel) Jacobson
(ca. 1860-1924). His father's name was Nissan. Oral family history says that
he came >from Dvinsk/Dinenburg. He married my great-great-grandmother Jennie
(Freyde) Levin around 1881. She was >from Zarasai.

On their passenger list to the United States, they and their children listed
their last origin as "Kovno." They left >from Swinemunde and arrived in New
York, but lived in Philadelphia. There is no trace of them in departure
records. Likewise, because they came in 1891, there is no specific town
information in official American records.

I can find nothing in the online European records for Jacob Jacobson. I have
seen some records that may indicate a Jacobson connection to Bauska or
Aizpute. Does anyone have any knowledge of or relationship to Jacobson
families who migrated >from Latvia to Lithuania between the 1860s and 1880s?

Kindly,

Avi Lichtenstein

Jewishgen I found 3 in Lodz, but that's all.
Diane,

There are several different databases within the JewishGen, and all should
be visited when researching family roots.

One of the most popular records containing databases is founded by Stanley
Diamant's Jewish Records Indexing -Poland (JRI-P) located at:

http://jri-poland.org/jriplweb.htm

Enter researched by you surname "Pastevelsky" in its originally recorded
"Polish" way as Pastewelski, and select "All Regions" options.

You will see 9 (nine) records located in Piotrkow Guberniya (this is where
Lodz records are located), 1 (one) in Warsaw (for a man born in Suwalki) and
rest of the records (164) are within Suwalki Guberniya. Pastewelski records
are split between towns Bakalarzewo, Krasnopol, Lodzieje, Sejny and Suwalki.
