Date   

Family History Pages Course will begin October 1 #lithuania

Phyllis Kramer
 

Do you have a lot of genealogical family material to share and want to
organize it into a set of images, but don't know how? Marlis Humphrey
will explain and demonstrate how to create image rich family history
pages for your family. Students will learn how to layout, design, and
edit a quality family history page set for two ancestors, that can be
broadened at a later time. You will learn to include documents like
census, naturalization and photographs of your family, heirlooms and
memorabilia .Students will discover sources of digital resources
(templates, fonts, etc.) for formatting, and will walk through a
project using Photoshop Elements 10 for editing. you will learn how to
format the pages for printing using Shutterfly.

The goal is to give students the basic PSE10 skills needed to complete
your family history pages. Those students who master this formatting
can enroll in the follow-on course to make covers, spines and backs
required to make the mini-book print-ready.

For details on requirements, tuition and dates, please view the course
description at www.jewishgen.org/education. If you have any questions,
please email jewishgen-education@...

and, a happy and healthy new year to all

the Nisson family name #lithuania

paul nisson <paul.nisson@...>
 

This is my first message to this group. My paternal grandfather
(Solomon Nisson) emigrated to Boston in 1899 >from Cork, Ireland
(according to 1910 US Census). The mystery I'm trying to crack is
where did his father (my Great Grandfather Moses Nisson) die?

Family lore is that the family moved >from Lithuania via Johannesburg,
SA and Cork, Ireland on the way to Boston. My hypothesis is that some of
the family (my grandfather Solomon Nisson for example) transliterated from
the Yiddish family name (??) to an English equivalent, Nisson. On the
other hand, Solomon's brother Israel used the family name Nathan. So,
the name was transliterated >from something similar sounding in Yiddish
to Nisson and Nathan in the 1890s. I'm asking since I've had a
portrait photo of my Great Grandfather Moses Nisson for about 30 years
and would like to know his final resting place. I've looked for US
obits using various online databases and I don't believe he ever made
it to the US.

Suggestions to find the ancestral name and location in what was at the
time Eastern Poland are appreciated. One other tidbit if there's a
distant relative out there, legend also had it that Moses had 3
marriages and the one to Dora (nee Dusale) produced Solomon and
Abraham Nisson, Israel Nathan and Sarah Rivke (Nisson) Jaffe who
perished in Europe at the hands of the Nazis.

It's difficult to obtain Rom. Records. I've been at this for 25 years and have
only obtained two death records >from internal Romania. Stay tuned to hear
from others who MIGHT be more positive. Seems to me that you already have
more about your family than most.

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!

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!

Subject: Maria Van Schevensteen/Petrus Van Roosboeck

Hello my name is Sharon I joined yesterday and this is the first time I have
posted on here. Please excuse me if I make any mistakes.
I am researching my partner Tony Ahrens family tree his grandmother was
Charlotte Ahrens born Schwann Germany 27th Jan 1906 her son Rainer Ahrens
was born Hamburg 15 Oct 1944. We believe his father was Jewish as he kept a
blanket >from childhood with a star of David on it and he was circumcised.
Pieter Van Roosboeck born 18th Sept 1908 born Antwerp is listed as his
father. Bad Arolsen Tracing Agency gave me some information. At one point he
was based in Lohbrugge Hamburg. 27th Sept 1943 to 12 Nov 1943 employed as
civil worker at Elbschloss Brauerei Hamburg 29th June 1944 to 30th April
1945 employed with Friedrich Stamp cooling machines factory Hamburg still
residing Lohbrugge Hamburg. No trace of him after that date.
His parents were Petrus Van Roosboeck born Antwerp 1856 and Maria Van
Schevensteen born Antwerp 1864 How do I trace their marriage details and is
Van Schevensteen and Van Roosboeck definitely Jewish names.
Is this a very rare thing a German girl having a relationship with a Jewish
man during WW2??
Would Pieter have been a forced labour worker? Charlotte was anti nazi as
she had books by Hans Peter Wolf and after the war in 1948 she wed a English
Army Sgt and moved to London.
Can anyone help me on how to get more information on Petrus, Maria and
Pieter?

Thank You

Sharon

Do you have a lot of genealogical family material to share and want to
organize it into a set of images, but don't know how? Marlis Humphrey
will explain and demonstrate how to create image rich family history
pages for your family. Students will learn how to layout, design, and
edit a quality family history page set for two ancestors, that can be
broadened at a later time. You will learn to include documents like
census, naturalization and photographs of your family, heirlooms and
memorabilia .Students will discover sources of digital resources
(templates, fonts, etc.) for formatting, and will walk through a
project using Photoshop Elements 10 for editing. you will learn how to
format the pages for printing using Shutterfly.

The goal is to give students the basic PSE10 skills needed to complete
your family history pages. Those students who master this formatting
can enroll in the follow-on course to make covers, spines and backs
required to make the mini-book print-ready.

For details on requirements, tuition and dates, please view the course
description at www.jewishgen.org/education. If you have any questions,
