Viewmate: short Yiddish translation requested #ukraine

Moshe & Esther Davis <davis@...>
 

Hi all,

I have a portrait postcard of the type popular in the late 19th century which contains on the
back a short handwritten Yiddish inscription. The postcard was handed down with the family
heirlooms. I would really appreciate a translation into English of the inscription.

The inscription is posted at Viewmate:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=35509

The subject of the picture is a distinguished-looking elderly man, possibly a Rabbinical figure,
wearing clothes which includes a gartel. The portrait was apparently taken circa 1880-1890
by a studio in Kiev.

Thanks in advance,
Moshe Davis

View Mate #romania

Dave and Melanie Bloom
 

I've posted 2 pictures to View Mate and need a little help gathering more
information.

The woman pictured is most likely Helen Hersch. The back of the pictures suggest
that they were taken in 1944 in front of her house at 2813 1/2 Buckingham,
Los Angeles. I've found a picture >from a 1939 UCLA yearbook with a Helen Hersch
that looks very similar to this woman. I've found voter registration lists that
show both Helen Hersch and Rose Herscovitch at that address in both 1944 and
1946. My dad and uncles remember a Hersch family as they were growing up in
Cleveland in the 40s-60s. But no one remembers exactly who they were. Can you
help?

View Mate numbers 35232 and 35233. The other names I'm searching in Cleveland
are: BLOOM, BLUM, BERGER, ROTENBERG, ROTHENBURG, POLLACK, SHANKER. RAVICH

Re: David LEVY, Lemberg c1866 - Help with parent name variations #general

Chris Amos <chrisaaaaa@...>
 

Now this is embarrassing.

Seems I had the wrong David..

Turns out it was a David Mordecai and Stametta after all, addresses tie up in
trade directories and UK certs. The Abraham, his son, I was following is
recorded in 1911 as Abramino (nearly)

May well be a dead end, Dad was Turkish, Mother Greek, kids born in Greece,
France and UK.

Thanks for the help

(Canada) Library and Archives Canada Adds War Brides of WWI and WWI to Their Military Heritage Section #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Library and Archives Canada added a page to their Military Heritage
Section about World War 1 and World War 2 foreign war brides. Records come
from several sources, including National Defense, Department of Employment
and Immigration, Department of External Affairs, the Directorate of
Repatriation, and the Canadian Wives Bureau. The War Brides page may be
found at: http://tinyurl.com/mpmzgs7
Original url:
http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/Pages/war-brides.aspx

The types of documents included in this collection include the
transportation and care of soldiers dependents en route to Canada, pay and
separation allowance, passage fees for dependents, and procedural
recommendations for soldiers returning to Canada with dependents.

The majority of war brides came >from Great Britain with the smaller number
coming >from other European countries. An estimated 54,000 relatives
accompanied the returning troops following demobilization in WW1. In WW2,
it is estimated 48,000 marriages between Canadian servicemen and civilian
women overseas had been registered. By the end of March 1948 the Canadian
government had transported approximately 44,000 wives and 21,000 children to
Canada.

The records are not searchable online, but you will be able to find what is
available and how to obtain them.

Need Help Identifying Location: Velchiretz #general

Jennifer Hutmire
 

Hello! I am new to this list and am glad to join you. I am having a hard time
researching my Jewish ancestors that came to Philadelphia >from either Russia
or the Ukraine because I do not know any of the female maiden names. I only
know the names PORTNER and WEINSTEIN.

I do have a location, gleaned >from the Petition of Naturalization of Samuel
DASH, the husband of one of the PORTNER women. However, he lists their origin
as Velchiretz. I am having trouble finding a place called Velchiretz in Russia
or the Ukraine (even after checking the database for other potential spellings).

Can anyone identify this town and whether it is in Russia, the Ukraine, or some
other location? It is listed in Russia in the document, and on the Census
records and in other documents the PORTNER and WEINSTEIN families both appear
to come >from Russia, but I know that with the boundary and political changes
that does not necessarily mean Russia per se. I am looking forward to learning
if anyone has encountered this location before. Have a great day!

Sincerely,

Jennifer Hutmire

GODARSKY -- Philippine and Benjamin #general

Bill <farnswfw@...>
 

Hello Gersig,

On 4 January 1885 Philippine GODARSKY (sometimes spelled GODARSI) married
Adolph KASPROWICZ in Brooklyn New York. Both gave their age as 24, and both
lived at 61 Eldridge Street.

According to the marriage record, Philippine GODARSKY was born in "Germany,
Forden" , daughter of Benjamin GODARSKY and Rivke MICHNIK. Both mothers'
full name and the town in Germany are difficult to read. I would like
better interpretation. See ViewMate posting #35515.
[MOD. NOTE: see http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=35515 ]

Philippine's presumed sibling Isadore GODARSKY (age 31) shows on the Hamburg
passenger lists as emigrating to USA on the Scandia in 1889 (Dec 31).
Isadore is >from Pottsdam, Germany per this list. Isadore's wife, EVA and
two children followed the following year.

I do not see a passenger listing for Philippine's other presumed sibling,
Jeanette GODARSKY. nor do I find a listing for Philippine.

Benjamin GODARSKI (age 50) and Nathan GODARSKI show on the passenger list of
the Hammonia arriving in New York on 27 May 1887. Both list Forden, Posen as
their home.

Ben GODARSKY is shown in the 1905 New York census living with his daughter,
Jeanette (Netty) at age 92. He died in 1906. I've ordered a copy of his
death record.

Obviously there are some serious inconsistencies in the above information. So
questions: What happened to Nathan?, what is true birth date for Benjamin,
father of Philippine? Were there two Benjamin GODARSKYs? Where did
Benjamin live and what did he do for a living (he left few tracks)? I have
fairly complete understanding of Philippine, Isadore, and Jeanette and their
families, but can I prove that they are indeed siblings?

Philippine died 13 April 1935 in Hartford, Connecticut where she lived most
of her adult life. She is buried in the Congregational Beth Israel Cemetery.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Upcoming trip to Galicia #galicia

A. Ronald Aronson <ronald.aronson@...>
 

Hi All,

I want to thank everyone who responded to my post three weeks ago,
both on the discussion board and to me directly. It was good to hear >from
those of you who have been to Kolbuszowa and have done research on
the area. Also, I appreciate your encouragement. I've used much of your
information and advice in preparing for our trip, which starts on Thursday.

Susana Leistner Bloch has made available census records >from 1890 that
contain property numbers. >from JRI I have been able to discover the given
names of relatives in Kolbuszowa - my great-aunt Itta BRAND EMMER in
Przedborz and her daughter Chaja (named for same person as her first
cousin my mother). >from a researcher working in the Przemysl archives I
have obtained a notary record of my grandfather Mechel EMMER selling
half of his property number 160 in Hucisko in 1908. With a little effort in
Kolbuszowa and Rzeszow, I'm told by the researcher, I'll be able to find
an exact property number, and as a result hope to visit the place where
my mother was born and where her family lived before they left for the
U.S. in 1913. My other goal is to locate information on the generation
before my grandparents, but succeeding in this seems less and less likely.

I've been asked by a couple of you to help with research into some names
while I'm there. However, I don't think I'll be going into the archives in
Przemysl or Rzeszow. Since I'm using a researcher for this I'll be glad to
give you his name and contact information.

Best wishes,
