Dear Genners,

The Ellis Island website present a ship manifest for Ignatz Grunwald,
who immigrated to the US through in 1923 through NY at the of 39.
I would like to contact any of his descendants, as he had 3 sons-it's
possible they might still be alive today. Any suggestions or help doing
so would be highly appreciated.

I am afraid that town with such name as Karossisrew was not in Volhynia in

AARON/S/ARONCZIK/VINACOR #belarus

Thank you everyone for your help in trying to find the
Ship Manifest and US Immigration paper for my g/uncle
'Thomas Harry AARON', born c.1883 ?Seliba, Minsk
Gubernia, son of Solomon and Grecia.

We have the 1910 NY Brooklyn Census (Sheet 229,
Supervisor's District No.2, Enumeration District
No.665).
Address: 505 Howard Avenue.
AARON Thomas (27), to US 1906
wife Freide (26), to US 1910
sons Abraham(7), Oscar(6), daughter Fanny (4).

We have Freide's Immigration paper:
Freide ARONCZIK (26), children Abram, Ascher, Feige.
Husband's given name begins 'Ch' (?).
from Swislotz. Father's name VINACOR (?).
Top of page no.28.
Sailed on 'S.S. Rhein' >from Bremen Feb 12th 1910.
Arrived NY March 2 1910 (Page no.158)

I received the following helpful reply >from Laura:

'I found what I believe to be your missing Ch.
Aronczik. On Ancestry, there is an additional page
of special inquiry regarding Friede which gives her
husband's name as Chone ARONCZIK. I then found on
Ancestry a Chone ARONZIK on the 'Pennsylvania' leaving
Hamburg May 13, 1906 arriving in New york on May 25,
1906 (in German only) but I couldn't find him in the
corresponding manifest for arriving in New York.
Checking for a Chone arriving on that ship in 1906 on
Ancestry, I finally found him mistranscribed as Chone
MONZIK on that ship. There are some discrepancies
however. It lists him as age 24, single and last
place of residence as Shelub (?). I can't decipher
his occupation.
I then tried to locate him on the Ellis Island website
via Steve Morse, but that particular manifest is in
two locations, and the major part won't come up.
It's supposed to be T715_715 page 31 line 15.'

Can anyone help further our search please?

With very many thanks for all your kind help.

"Who do you think you are" /BBC-TV #belarus

david nathan <d.nathan1@...>
 

Hi Genners,

"Who Do You Think You Are" is an immensely popular BBC TV series in which
personalities are helped to find their roots and research their family
history, now in its third series. For those in the UK or who can receive BBC
programmes via satellite, it is well worth watching.

Each series has given me new ideas and new leads to finding my own and my
wife's antecedents - and it is entertaining at the same time.

Starts Monday 6 September at 9 pm BST.

Romania SIG #Romania Cemetery photos and one more story #romania

Susan Stone <momteller@...>
 

Hello All,
Many of you have been asking about cemetery
photos....I just want to let you know that I have sent
them to JOWBR and they will post them on that page on
the Jewish Gen website. Please keep your eye out for
them. Thank you to Nolan for his help, and to all
those who will translate these stones for us.

I have one more story to add to my Romanian
adventures....We went to BATIZ (Botiz) where an
ancestor of mine was born. It was a small cemetery
across the street >from some small, poor homes and we
had to find the key. In ALL the cemeteries we visited
there was a sign posted (sometimes a small hand
written one) telling us the address of the person with
the key. Often they were paid by a Jewish
organization to keep the cemetery intact. As we were
turning into the lane where the cemetery was, a man
in an undershirt rushed at us and would not let us
pass. He plastered himself on the car and was
screaming. Even my unflappable guide
was...well....flapped! He thought we would get in
trouble with the police for hitting the man. The man
ran away screaming so he wasn't hurt. The people all
came out and told us that the man was "crazy" because
his wife had died and he wanted to die too. After our
cemetery visit the police came and somehow found the
man running around and hauled him off unceremoniously.
A little adventure in very rural Romania.
