Seeking Mickey Rosenberg, once of Bloemfontein, South Africa #general

Eli Rabinowitz
 

Hi all

I am searching on behalf of Amit Naor, for a distant cousin or family,
surname ROZENBERG or ROSENBERG.

His family called him Mickey, so his original name could have been
Nikola/Miklos. Alternatively, he could have been known as Nicholas or Michael.

The family originated in Sombor, in Serbia today, although their ancestry was
Jewish-Hungarian.

It appears that the family lived in BLOEMFONTEIN South Africa, probably
through the 1950s and 60s.

Mickey may have owned a dairy and his son may have been a swimmer at a
Maccabi Games in the 1960s or 70s, most likely 1973.

The family may have later migrated to the US or Canada.

Please send your responses privately to:

eli@elirab.com

Many thanks and regards

(US) Ellis Island Immigration Facts #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Genealogy In Time has posted an article on Ellis Island Immigration Facts.
Ellis Island was the main port of entry for many immigrants to America-some
estimate about 1/3 of all Americans can trace their ancestors through Ellis
Island. Only third class or steerage passengers were processed through
Ellis Island. During World War II, Ellis Island was used to intern German,
Italian and Japanese prisoners of war. This is a good primer for your
beginning genealogists.

My paternal grandparents came >from Bocki and Jacubowskie. My
grandfather came here in 1903 and I think my grandmother in 1911.
Original family name was, in English, either Chesler or Chiseler. Also
Cheslera in Polish and Tzesler in Russian. My gp's spoke of
Bielsk (Bielsk Podlaski?), Kleszcele, and Bialystok. I've seen
Jonas Ciezler in the 1912 census but never saw the 1897 one. I believe
my gp came here on the Rotterdam in June 1903. Never saw the ship's
manifest.

It's rare to see someone else interested in Bocki, though I did exchange
emails with someone whose last name was Bodiker (another variant of
Bocki, of which there are several). He came >from Montreal, claiming his
father was the last Jew to come here >from Bocki. Perhaps we could share
information about Bocki and our families?

My grandmother, Fannie Fox (Fiegle Fuchs in Hebrew) and her siblings
migrated either >from Bocki or Bielsk in Poland in around 1900. In the
list of names for the Bialystok region in the 1897 census, the name
Fuks is mentioned. On the ship records her name is listed as Fuchs,
but that is very close to the Fuks spelling. I wonder how I would
go about trying to find out if the name Fuks and the people with
that name in the region are >from Bielsk or Bocki, so I can see if
I can trace the ancestors to these towns based on the 1897 census.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

Bielsk census #poland

Mark Gordon <urbana44@...>
 

Less than 5% of the 1897 census for Bielsk Podlaski has survived, so
that source is not indicative of the range of surnames in that town.
I skimmed the 1914 Bielsk homeowners list which I received >from local
Bielsk historians. On page 13, I located a dwelling with head of
household Movsha (Moses) Motolev FUKS; this residence was home to 5
males and 3 females. Motol may have been the father of Movsha.
This information verifies that FUKS (transliterated >from Russian)
was a name found in Bielsk in 1914.

Linkovskis of Slobodka #lithuania

Seth Bittker <sbittker@...>
 

My great-great grandmother Ida Divora Linkovski Rosen was >from
Vilijampole (Slobodka) based on family lore. She was born in
the late 1830s based on records >from Detroit. In addition her
husband Eliezer (Louis) Rosen was born in Slobodka according to
his death certificate. The members of this Rosen family were
tailors and seamstresses who immigrated in the early 1880s and
later settled in Detroit.

There is one family for which there are records in the
All Lithuania Database >from Vilijampole that my Ida could be a
daughter of based on her maiden name and age - the family of
Itsko and Leah Linkovski. Details on this family based on records
appear below. Given the nature of the vital records and tax
records that much of this data is based upon and the paucity of
known daughters in this family, it seems plausible that the
existence of other daughters perhaps including my Ida
may have gone unrecorded.

Is anybody familiar with this Itsko and Leah Linkovski family
from Slobodka or know of any living descendants >from it?
Admittedly it may be that my Ida is unrelated to this family.
I thought perhaps DNA with living descendants could suggest
whether such a relationship exists, but I am very interested in
other suggestions as well. I have tried contacting people
interested in Linkovskis on Jewishgen Family Finder as well as
Family Tree of the Jewish People.

Father and Descendants of ABRAHAM ZUCKERMAN from CHYROW, Poland #poland

Leah and Eli Teicher
 

I am looking for the descendants of Abraham ZUCKERMAN (born 1878) who
immigrated >from Chyrow/Chirov (Then Poland today Ukraine) to the U.S on
1923. (Ellis Island Channa's declaration) He lived in 58 Lewis St., New York
when his family arrived.

His family joined him on December 5th 1928:
Channah/Annah/Anna (nee MEISNER) wife (born 1878)

Their children:
Sera/Sarah (b. 1909)
Liebe/Lena/Lillian/Leah (b.1912)
Chaje Pessel/ Helen (b.1914/5)
Ryfke/Rivka became Ruth(b.1915)
Elijaez Szyja /Alex (b. 1920).

Alex was born in Korczyna (Korchina),Poland and I do have a reason to
believe all his brothers and sisters were born there or in other town in
Galicia.

The censuses of 1930, 1940 (in Ancestry.com) do not tell.
In Alex's Social Security Applications and Claims of Ancestry.com :
His parents are mentioned also his mother's maiden name -Meisner.

Questions:
1. Could not trace their descendants in the U.S.A.
My father's family - ZUCKERMAN -is originated >from Chyrow and their
private names
are as my father's great uncles, aunts and cousins.

2. Who was Abraham ZUCKERMAN father?
This fact would connect (or not ) Abraham to our family.

Any help would be appreciated!

Gabin / Gombin (pow. Gostynin) civil (Jewish and non-Jewish) birth,
marriage, and death records for 1809-1825 are viewable (not
searchable) online as scans on szukajwarchiwach.pl. The scans appear
to correspond to FHL microfilms 729331-729334.

To use this collection, start by viewing the list of years and record
types for which there are scans at
http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/50/398/0/str/1/100?ps=True#tabJednostki.
Not all types (birth, marriage, death) are available for all years.
Click a link of interest >from the list for which the number in the
rightmost column is not 0 (which indicates there are no scans). Then
click the "Digital copies" or "Skany" tab at the top to see thumbnail
images.

At this point, you can browse through all the images or try to find
names of interest in the handwritten indices that are often, but not
always, on the last few images. When there are indices, they are
sometimes by given name, sometimes by surname. Either way, when you
find a thumbnail that you want to enlarge, click the thumbnail to see
a medium-size version. While viewing a medium-size image, you can
click on the right or left side of the image (an arrow icon will
appear under your cursor) to display the next or previous medium-size
image. Click the rectangle icon in the bottom right of a medium-size
image to see the full-size version (which might not fit entirely on
your screen, so click and drag the full-size images with your mouse to
reveal off-screen sections). While viewing a full-size image, you can
click the links just above the image, on the right or left, to display
the next or previous full-size image. To download a full-size image,

Thanks very much to the State Archives in Plock for making these scans
available. Scans of civil records >from other nearby towns, such as
Gostynin, might also be available for the same time period, see
http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/50/str/1/200#tabZasoby. (Perhaps, someone
else can review and catalog those likely to be of Jewish interest.)

The purpose of this message is to notify you of this resource, but I

rightmost column is not 0 (which indicates there are no scans). Then
click the "Digital copies" or "Skany" tab at the top to see thumbnail
images.

At this point, you can browse through all the images or try to find
names of interest in the handwritten indices that are often, but not
always, on the last few images. When there are indices, they are
sometimes by given name, sometimes by surname. Either way, when you
find a thumbnail that you want to enlarge, click the thumbnail to see
a medium-size version. While viewing a medium-size image, you can
click on the right or left side of the image (an arrow icon will
appear under your cursor) to display the next or previous medium-size
image. Click the rectangle icon in the bottom right of a medium-size
image to see the full-size version (which might not fit entirely on
your screen, so click and drag the full-size images with your mouse to
reveal off-screen sections). While viewing a full-size image, you can
click the links just above the image, on the right or left, to display
the next or previous full-size image. To download a full-size image,
click the link at the bottom center, below the image.

Here is an example of a full-size image containing a Jewish birth
record >from 1816 (number 36, bottom right):

Thanks very much to the State Archives in Plock for making these scans
available. Scans of civil records >from other nearby towns, such as
Gostynin, might also be available for the same time period, see
http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/50/str/1/200#tabZasoby. (Perhaps, someone
else can review and catalog those likely to be of Jewish interest.)

The purpose of this message is to notify you of this resource, but I
regret I am not able to provide individual assistance.
