SCHECTMAN and APPEL from NYC #general

SHEILA TOFFELL <toffell@...>
 

I know this is a long shot, but we are missing a lot of one generation of my
Maternal Grandfather's generation, so here goes: My Great Uncle, Aaron
KARSUNSKY (Harry KARSON), petitioned for naturalization in 1917. He lived on
112th St in NYC. The witnesses on his petition are Bertha SCHECTMAN, listed
as a housewife, and Simon APPEL,listed as a mechanic. Both lived on 112th
St as well. Considering that family and landsmen often lived with, or close
by each other, I thought it worth a shot to see if these 2 names rang a bell
with any one, and to see if they were family or friends. You never now 'til
you try!

Schumkav / Singman Surname #lithuania

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

By sheer detective work I was able to find last week while looking through
Emigration >from the Russian Empire, the passenger ship listing for my
maternal
greatgrandparents , Julian & Anna Singman, and their seven children listed
under
the name SCHUMKAV. For months I have checked databases, written e-mail,
and found nothing under the name Singman. Knowing only that my grandfather
told me he had come during the blizzard of '88 (he remembered this because
the snow was so high he had to be carried by his father), and assuming the
surname had been changed after their arrival, I began working backwards from
March 3l '88, looking only at names of households with three or more
children.
I found them under ship arrivals for March 15 on The Queen >from Liverpool.
It is
probable that that came >from Vilna or Vilna Gubernia.

Now I am looking for information as to the origin of the name SCHUMKAV,
various spellings and pronunciations and anyone who may know of others
with this surname or something similar.

Myself and the entire extended Singman family would appreciate any help
with this surname which was unknown, for over 110 years, to all the family
until last week.

Thank you.

Book on Jews of Lithuania #lithuania

JM <jmorzil1@...>
 

During the last couple of weeks there has been several references to books
that could be used as sources of information.

I came across The Annihilation of Lithuanian Jewry by Rabbi Ephraim Oshry,
published by the Judaica Press in 1995. It has a long list of names in the
index, pictures, and short histories of several of the larger towns in
Lithuania.

I thought I found something unique, but this book was mentioned previously.
I found it was discussed in 1996 by using the discussion group archives, but
would never have found that if the book was not discovered first.

PRESS and SCHNEIDER in Viduklah and Kaunas

KOSOFSKY in Stuchin/Szczuczyn/Shchuchyn/Scucyn


Looking for a town that sounds like Smadunka? #lithuania

Handed down verbally for many years, family members said they came >from the
Lithuanian town of Smadunka. After researching maps, WOWW, shtetlseeker,
etc. I have been unable to find anything close. Actually the closest was a
word that means "tiller of the soil".

Does anyone have any ideas.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Dear Bill;
I just tried LYCOS, my first time. I did see banners, but nothing about
"Jews for Jesus". Let me know if you still get it.

Translation of Name on Tombstone #general

Sally N Janin <snjanin@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners:

I have been unable to figure out the first name on my cousin
Samuel's tombstone and hope that I may receive help >from you.
Here are the letters (reading like English):

Shin Mem Ayin Vav Vav

My edition of Kolatch has nothing similar. His second name was
Koppel (Khaf Aleph Pe Yod Lamed), which is a Yiddish form of
Yaakov.

Thank you.
