Bukovina's relavance #romania

s_wiener@...
 

Dear Romanian Researchers,

When this group speaks of Romania - how much of the
time is the crown state of Bukovina included?

My family hails >from Czernowitz, Kosow, Vizhnitsa,
Kotsman, Miliye, Putila, Gura Humorului, and Dorna
Vatra. I have NO family >from the Bucharest, Cluj, Dej
areas except for a few who were relocated by the
Romanians after the war - and who made aliyah as soon
as possible. Some relatives drifted north towards the
area of Kolomyya, Galicia [Autro-Hungarian Empire]
during the years 1870-1910.

I read the e-mails faithfully every day there is a
posting, but I seldom see any references to this
sub-Galician area. Was the Jewish population from
this region very small compared to the rest of
Romania? Are there few members interested in this
region? I had the impression that Czernowitz was
considered a "Little Vienna" and that Vizhnitsa was
the center of Chasidism.

Yad Vashem list many, many Bukovinians in the Pages of
Testimony. For just three of my surnames of interest,
[RUBINGER, FESSLER and WEIGEL] there were some 600
entries. OF course, some were duplicate enties and
some were relatives who had moved to Vien & Berlin but
still..

Fellow SIG members - your thoughts please.

Many thanks,
Shellie Wiener

Charging to a credit card is obviously the easiest thing to do, especially
when the intended recipient is a merchant, but doesn't consitute a transfer
into a bank account. The same is true for PayPal and other such agencies.
Newfangled instruments like credit cards have not caught on in Europe to the
same extent that they have in the US and other countries oriented to the
21st century. There are many cases in which foreign recipients will have
nothing to do with things like checks either, and are interested only in
direct transfer into a bank account, untouched by humand hands. This would
not be inconvenient, except that the fees taken by European banks for doing
this are in general horrendous.

Raphael BENJAMIN, M.A. #general

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

Just rec'd a copy of the 1896 marriage certificate of my husband's
great-aunt >from the NY City Archives.

It attests to the wedding of Birdie Lichtenstadter and Sol J Wallach.
The groom' s address is given as 417 E 56 St while the bride's was 419 E. 56
St where, per the US census of 1900, her mother lived.

Anyone know anything about either of those addresses?

Witnesses were Max Lichtenstadter (brother of the bride) and a Henry Wallach
(relationship , if any, unknown).

The ceremony was performed by " Raphael BENJAMIN, M.A. " He is described
as "Minister" (which I know was common at that time) and is listed as living
at the "Hotel Premier, NY City".

Was it common for a Rabbi to use M.A. after his name?

And, of course, do any of these names or addresses ring any bells?

Seeking Sarah MOSKOVITS GREENFIELD #general

Vivian Kahn
 

I am seeking information about Sarah GREENFIELD, oldest daughter of
Mark MOSKOVITS, my great-grandfather's brother or cousin >from Ungvar.
Mark arrived in NY in 1882, making him the first relative I know of who
came to the US. He was married to Hannah who was born about 1910 and
died, probably in the Bronx, about 1915.

Sarah and her older brother Samuel Judah were born in Hungary. Other
children born in NYC were:

Lillian b. 1889 who married Max LESSER and d. 1957
Esther b. about 1890 who married William MITTLEMAN and d. 1949
Bella b. 1892 who married Abe RUBEN
Milton (Michael C. MARTENS) b. 1894 who married Dottie? and d. 1969
and Herbert b. 1896 who married Lillian and d. 1972.

Much of my early info on this family is >from Herbert's son Bud.
Unfortunately, neither of us nor any of our other MOSKOVITS cousins
know exactly how we're all related.

Searching the NY Times death notices I found a Nov. 1965 notice of an
unveiling for Sarah Greenfield, wife of Herman, who is buried in Baron
Hirsch Cemetery, Port Richmond, SI. Based on additional info >from the
1920 census, I believe that Sarah was born in Austria-Hungary in 1881
and Herman in 1878. Sarah and Herman were living at 478 Wyona? Street
in Brooklyn and had three children, all born in NYC. They were Fani b.
1904, Bertha b. 1908, and Isadore b. 1910. Herman is identified as a
tailor.

Please contact me off-list if any of these folks sound familiar.
