Ila Dan CASPI #general

Sheldon Dan
 

I am working on my family history and would like to follow up on some research
my father's cousin, the family genealogist, had previously done.

Ila Dan CASPI was the daughter of Hillel Zalman DAN, one of the founders of
Israel's Solel Boneh corporation. She confirmed that she was related to my
family, and when I went to Israel in 1985, I met her and her husband in Tel Aviv.
I would like to contact her if she is alive, but a letter addressed to her home
in Tel Aviv was returned.

Ila was previously married to Sfania COHEN and had one son, Ron, who may be
living in New York. She has a sister, Tova ZIV, who may be in Ramat Aviv,
Israel.

If anyone has contact information on Ila or any of her family, please send it
to me directly.

Identifying a name #general

Lisa Liel
 

According to my great-great-great grandfather's death certificate, his
mother's name was "Lyrles Sacks". A relative had told me this was the
name, and I had assumed that it was a mistake.  For example, another
relative was supposedly named "Swerlhaim". In the end, he turned out to
be "Yisroel Chaim", which was close. But I got a copy of the actual
certificate, and her first name really does look like "Lyrles".  You can
see the certificate at:

My g-g-g-grandfather was >from Nesvizh, Belarus. But I've not found any
similar name anywhere.  Even Google comes up empty.

Can anyone think what this name is, and where it might be from?

Thanks,
Lisa Liel

[Seek help learing about German - American] Immigration patterns #germany

Ellen Barnett Cleary
 

I am working on some research on my family >from Ebertsheim, Germany.  I
have found their dates of birth in the German records. And I have found
records of them here in the US.  I have trying to find them immigrating
from Germany on passenger lists.
I am surprised that I am not finding several members of the family
traveling together.  I understand that not every passenger list is
indexed, so they may indeed have traveled together and I have not yet
found the right passenger list.

But I am wondering if some of you might help me understand immigration
better.  Someone told me that there were people who traveled with young
girls when they immigrated so they would not be traveling alone. But I
have not noticed that in reference to anyone in my family whom I have
researched.

Do you know if that was indeed the case in the 19th century?

I know that sometimes a son or a father would immigrate first and some
or even all of the family might immigrate later.

Is it also usual for each member of a family immigrate separately?

I realize this is a very broad question.  I have come to realize that I
am very uniformed about German immigration patterns in the 19th century
and would love to learn more about them.

ENGELSON-MILLER in Kefar Saba, Israel #general

Joan Engel
 

I am looking for descendants of Fruma ENGELSON MILLER who was married
to Ozer MILLER. Fruma and Ozer lived in Kefar Saba, Israel in the
1950's+ and they had a least one daughter named Nelli. I believe
Fruma may have been a telephone operator in the 1960's and was
related to my paternal ggm, Neche ENGELSON WELLER, who lived in Vilna,
Podbordz or Nemencine, Lithuania.

Ideas for how to find them or help in finding them are appreciated.
Please contact me directly at joan.engel@gmail.com.

ViewMate translation request - Hebrew on gravestone - BOGIS #general

Terv Gold
 

I'd appreciate a translation of the Hebrew on a grave stone. I think I've
deciphered Samuel's Hebrew name as Shlomo but please confirm. I can't make
sense of the rest of it. I am particularly interested in his father's name.

Would someone be able to take a few photos at Har Nebo and Montefiore
