New identity requires new introduction #germany

Sam Schulman
 

Hello, friends,
2 years ago I introduced myself as the descendent of Abraham
LEBENSBERGER of Gaugrehweiler, Palatine; Babette WEINBERG of Bavaria
and Simon BERGER of Wuerttemberg.
My right-bank ancestors, it transpires, gave their grandchildren, my
grandparents, inaccurate information about their names and places of
origin.
My great x 2 grandmother Theresa Weinberg (d. Quincy, IL 1899) was
born WEINBERGER (originally LOEW) in Steinhart, Bavaria, and her
mother was an EMANUEL of the same town. My great x 2 grandfather
Simon Berger (d. Quincy, IL 1910) was born SELIGSBERGER in
Fuchsstadt, Unterfranken, Bavaria, and STEINAM of the same town. .
Mother's name STEINAM, also of Fuchsstadt. Unfortunately,
Simon was the only emigrant in his famiy. Like all Fuchsstadters, Simon's
relatives moved to Wuerzburg and eventually to their doom, with the
exception of two nieces who married Ashkenazi Dutch brothers living in
Utrecht named FRENKEL,some of whose children and grandchildren
survived WWII in the Netherlands.

Best regards, Sam Schulman samschulman@gmail.com Faber, Virginia
My JGFF Researcher ID number is 570865.

Mikolajow near Brody: Cadastral Map 1888 on the Gesher Galicia Map Room #poland

Pamela Weisberger
 

A new town center cadastral map for Mikolajow in the Brody
administrative district (today in Ukraine) has been uploaded to Gesher
Galicia's Map Room:

This four-color cadastral map for Mikolajow (Mykolaiv, Mykolayiv) was
surveyed and lithographed in 1888. The town is located here on both
sides of the Sydylowka (Sudylivka) River near Radziechow (Radekhiv)
and Brody. Buildings and land parcels are clearly marked; this late
imperial map shows property numbering evidence of extensive building
additions and parcel splits since the original survey and numbering.
Nearly all buildings in town are wooden, including the largest church,
and there is no defined market square. Much of the land is marked with
symbols indicating marshes and other watery soils.

The direct link to the map:

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cada.../mikolajow-mykolaiv-1888/

Note to researchers: there are two other Mikolajows: one in the Bobrka
(Bibrka) and the other in the Zydaczow (Zhydachiv) Galician
administrative districts. We are working to obtain maps for these
towns as well.

Looking for info on BEHRSTOCK #latvia

Lisa Liel
 

My great-grandfather Leo BEHRSTOCK was born in Mitau (Jelgava). I have
some information on some of his siblings, and I know that his cousins
went to Ireland, rather than the US, but I'm interested in finding out
everything I can about the family. His parents were Abraham (son of
Vigder) Behrstock and Feiga (daughter of Jacob) Melamed.

Thanks,
Lisa Liel

In a 1913 Imperial Russian directory, there several examples of business
names ending in n-ki. What does this stand for? It often occurs when two
people are partners, and then both names are listed followed by n-ki.
