Searching Jane & Benjamin Cohen #courland #latvia

Rachel Poole <rachel.poole3@...>
 

Hello

I have just joined this Sig having just discovered that my ggm Jane Cohen (B
1872) was born in Courland. I don't as yet know when she emigrated but she
married a John Silver (B Poland) in London in 1893. Her marriage
certificate lists her father as being Benjamin. Jane and John's children
were all born in England, Esther, Bessie, Abraham (Abe - later moved to
Canada), Leakh and Solomon (Solly) and Alexander (Alec). By 1913 when
Esther (my gm) married they had moved to Swansea in Wales and lived their
until they died in about 1955.

If anyone has any information on Jane or her father or suggestions of what
their names could have been in Courland I'd love to hear >from you.

BARNETT/BERZINSKY #southafrica

paulkozo@...
 

In addition to the useful suggestions >from Ann Rabinowitz it may be worth
looking at UK naturalisation papers. There are two BARNETTs in Leeds
naturalised in the 1890s - Jacob and Hyman - on the National Archives index (at
http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk) and, if relevant, the files will have all
sorts of fascinating details.

Is there is a particular reason why BARNETT should be the chosen
anglicisation of other BERZYNSKI relatives?

Searching John Silver #poland

Rachel Poole <rachel.poole3@...>
 

Hello

I have just discovered that my ggf John Silver was born in Poland about
1871. I don't as yet know when he emigrated but he married a Jane Cohen
(B Courland) in London in 1893. Unfortunately the marriage certificate
just lists his father as being deceased with no first name.

Jane and John's children were all born in England, Esther, Bessie,
Abraham (Abe - later moved to Canada), Leakh and Solomon (Solly) and
Alexander (Alec). By 1913 when Esther(my gm) married they had moved to
Swansea in Wales and lived their until they died in about 1955

I have been searching the databases and looking for names such as Josef
Zilber and found a few possible births - but I am just guessing!
If anyone has any information or suggestions I'd love to hear >from you

The JewishGen Yizkor Book Necrology Database indexes the names of
persons in the necrologies - the lists of Holocaust martyrs -
published in the Yizkor Books appearing on the JewishGen Yizkor Book
Translation Project. This database is only an index of names; it
directs researchers back to the Yizkor Book itself, where more
complete information may be available.

This database allows the surnames to be searched via soundex.
Because most of these names were transliterated >from Hebrew and
Yiddish, the spellings of the surnames may not be as you are used to
seeing them in Latin-alphabet sources.

JRI Poland #Poland Searching John Silver #poland

Rachel Poole <rachel.poole3@...>
 

Hello

I have just discovered that my ggf John Silver was born in Poland about
1871. I don't as yet know when he emigrated but he married a Jane Cohen
(B Courland) in London in 1893. Unfortunately the marriage certificate
just lists his father as being deceased with no first name.

Jane and John's children were all born in England, Esther, Bessie,
Abraham (Abe - later moved to Canada), Leakh and Solomon (Solly) and
Alexander (Alec). By 1913 when Esther(my gm) married they had moved to
Swansea in Wales and lived their until they died in about 1955

I have been searching the databases and looking for names such as Josef
Zilber and found a few possible births - but I am just guessing!
If anyone has any information or suggestions I'd love to hear >from you

Regards
