Quo cemeteries.

I have been able to locate some people I've been searching for for
quite a while.

Re: Help needed with Philadelphia arrival image/info. #general

CAROLYNR
 

I was doing searches for Mark London's relative, E Markus, to see if a
better image for his 1894 Philadelphia arrival was available, and a resource
came up that I was unfamiliar with. It has a wealth of immigrant info that
has me relooking for all of my relatives who came via Philadelphia. It's the
"Philadelphia Bank Immigrant Passage Records, 1890-1949".
Here is an excerpt >from the description: "Today, the record books of the
Blitzstein Bank, Rosenbaum Bank, and Lipshutz Bank are housed at the
Philadelphia Jewish Archives Center (PJAC). They offer unique kinds of
information, including the name and U.S. address of the person who paid for the
tickets, port of entry - usually, but not always the port of Philadelphia - and
intended final destination (again, not necessarily Philadelphia)."
Ancestry's searchable database makes merging data with my Family Tree
Maker data easier,(no images), but the actual source is JewishGen, (of course).
Here is the Ancestry link that details all the great information available
and has links to several JewishGen bank databases.

Research Help Needed Ostand, Schwartz, Goldstein #romania

artnsonia@...
 

I found a military book >from my great grandfather Joseph Ostand when he
was in Romania. It says on the first page that his name is Iosub Ostand
and is dated 1883. He was born in Bucuresti, Romania in 1861. His
father's name is David and mother's name is Sara/Sura living in the
Iflov district. I've found all the documents/information for when he
was in the U.S. (even though the name was misspelled on many census
records) but I can't seem to find anything else on his life in Romania
(birth records, marriage records, sibling's names.) If anyone has
access to these records I would greatly appreciate it. I've checked
jewishgen.org, familysearch.org, and ancestry.com but can't seem to
find anything there. On a border crossing record >from Canada to U.S. in
1903 it says that he was going to meet up with his brother in law Isaac
Goldstein. I'm not sure if this is his sister's husband or his wife's
sister's husband. Also any information on his wife, my great
grandmother, Pearl Schwartz pertaining to her life in Romania (born in
Bodeschon around 1865-1869) would be greatly appreciated. Her parents
names were Samuel and Sara. Together, Joseph (Josef) and Pearl (Peppy)
(married approx 1888) had six children, David (1890 Bucharest), Anna
(1894 Bucharest), Esther (1899 Bucharest) , Sarah (1902 Bucharest),
Philip (1906 U.S), and Samuel (Saul - 1912 U.S. - my grandfather).
Thanks for any help provided!

In the Digest of 13 September about whether the nationality of her

justifies saying that she is of Lithuanian descent. In a word, "No"

The answer isn't so simple because the original question was
different. The question was, am I a Polish Jew or a Russian Jew or a
Lithuanian Jew. The simple answer could be based on which king or
emperor ruled the territory when the ancestor lived there. But usually
when we ask the question it is in a cultural/ethnic context.

The village of Przesosl is just a few miles >from the current Lithuanian
border. In the 18th and 19th centuries its residents most likely spoke
Yiddish with a Litvak accent, followed Jewish Litvak customs, cooked
their food Litvak style, and considered Vilna the "Jerusalem of the North".
In that sense they were definitely Litvaks (Yiddish) or Lithuanians
(English).This most likely does not mean that a descendant of such a
family has any recognized claim to citizenship in modern day Lithuania.
