Trying to find descendents of Morris Sommerfeld in Israel #general

Leslie Weinberg <lbw50@...>
 

Although a number of you have been kind enough to research on my
behalf, I'm still knocking my head against a brick wall trying to
find Morris Sommerfeld, or his descendents, in Israel. He filled out
one a particular POT in the 50s for an Abraham Eisen, >from Nagyvarad
(Oradea, Hungary). There was a possibility, I thought, that Abraham
might have been a son >from my great-grandfather's first marriage. He
had been born in Tyczyn, Poland, and his father's name was Chaim,
same as my grandfather's father, and I had heard that my grandfather
had traveled to Nagyvarad, before coming to the U.S. to see his "half
brother". That is where he met my grandmother, and he followed her
to the U.S.

Chaim's first wife had the maiden name "Scharf". The other day, I
looked at the marriage certificate for my grandfather's sister, >from
Chaim's second marriage, and although it is in Polish, and I can't
understand it (I have posted it on Viewmate, but so far, no response
on the translation), I did see the name of what may have been a
witness at the wedding, and the last name was "Scharf". Coincidence?
It would seem there are too many coincidences here for there not to
be a possible answer to the riddle.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what direction I can go in to find
this family? I'm assuming they still live in Israel, but I can't be
sure. Thank you, Leslie Weinberg

Dear Donna,

OK, Elsebeth, I'll jump in!
Thanks! - also to others who reacted to my message.

I do not, to my knowledge, have Scandinavian connections. However, my
TRUPIN/TROUPIN/TRUPPIN family in Latvia was close enough to Scandinavia that
perhaps, once upon a time, some folks crossed over.
Could it at times have been spelled TREPIN?
I found a Martin TREPIN in the Danish Demographic Database http://ddd.dda.dk

He was born 1862 in Riga, Latvia, and expelled >from Denmark 31st Jan. 1888 and
sent back to Latvia (Libau).

That is all that I've found in Denmark (going through my own and the online
searchable databases) - maybe someone can find something in the other
Scandinavian
Countries.

I have another reason for monitoring the list. As librarian of the JGS of
Ottawa, I have occasion to assist others in their research; and monitoring
area lists gives me information that may be useful as I assist folks.
You deserve great thanks - I know that is quite a timeconsuming task!

Everyone's contribution, no matter how small, has the potential to assist
someone else in some way. I, too, encourage listers to contribute their
names and places and stories.
Precisely!

Best wishes

Re: G=F6tgatan_71, Stockholm, Sweden? #scandinavia

William Linden <william.linden@...>
 

Dear Steve,

Re. your calling for Götgatan 71.

At Götgatan 71 there is one Phographer in the Yellow Pages . He has abt
160,000 matches on Googles.

www.google.se/search?hl=sv&q=hans+gedda&btnG=Google-s%C3%B6kning&meta=

His name is Hans Gedda and he is a world wide renowned Portrait
Photographer widely written about here as well i.e. Mr. Nelson Mandela
and the personal Photographer to our former Prime Minister Olof Pame,
assassined. He is born 1942 and works upon appointments in his studio at
Götgatan 71 in the South and very busy part of central Stockholm at a
very good location right in the middle of it all: "The Stockholm Södermalm"

I have called Mr. Gedda on phone and have the following information for you:

The house Götgatan 71 was constructed around the Millennium 1899/1900.
At the time there was a Photo Atelier exactly there Mr. Gedda has been
told by elderly customers.

After that the atelier was possessd by our famous Jewish Hungarian
Immigrant and painter Mr. Endre Nemes, now deseased and the studio was
transferred to his friend Mr. Gedda.

Mr. Gedda will meet the Photographer Lennart Nilsson this week. I assume
you meant _The_ Lennart Nilsson.

If you need support here I'll do what I can.

And in case you know anything about the three Sweden Immigrants
1800-1815 Jewellers Friedrich Heinrich ( Isaac??) STURM *1796 and Caspar
David _Ludwig_ STURM * 1786 or the Tailor Jacob STURM married in
Stockholm 1803 pls do not hesitate to give me an email as I'm so far
unable to locate any of their parents in their European country of
origin, Germany, Poland, Austria the Baltics or elsewhere though years
of reserarch. I know more or less everything about STURM/STORM
immigrants to the USA but I lack my personal family link of these three
gentlemen backwards in line.



Good Luck at Götgatan 71 !

The Changing Borders of .......... NY Cemeteries! (aka Cypress Hills Cemetery) #general

David Priever
 

Dear Fellow Jewishgenners,

We are all very cognizant of the border changes that have occured for many
of us in our ancestral countries. But I finally confirmed a border change
that *may* effect those who have been unable to locate the cemetery an
ancestor is interred in when the death certificate says "Cypress Hills
Cemetery (CHC)".

from previous postings to Jewishgen by myself and various other
Jewishgenners, it is known that Cypress Hills Cemetery is in the Brooklyn
neighborhood known as Cypress Hills. Cypress Hills (Brooklyn) and the
Woodhaven neighborhood of Queens are next to each other.

Many early death certificates say Cypress Hills and a researcher has often
been told by Cypress Hills Cemetery that their ancestor is *not* there.

Cypress Hills Cemetery is surrounded by the following Jewish Cemeteries: to
the east, Maimonides and east of Maimonides, Mt. Hope. North of Cypress
Hills is Mt. Carmel, Mt. Neboh and New Mt. Carmel. New Mt. Carmel extends
to Myrtle Ave. and is just north of Mt. Carmel Cemetery. These two
cemeteries have their entrances on Cypress Hills St (1). Also north and to
the east of CHC, with its entrance along Myrtle Ave. (and located in
Glendale (Queens County), NY is Mt. Lebanon Cemetery.

I was told that the fence that separates Maimonides and Cypress Hills
Cemeteries was moved. A matter of fact, one of the 12 CHC Jewish sections
that border the Maimonides Cemetery fence is called.....Maimonides*.
Further to this point, Mt. Carmel and Mt. Lebanon Cemeteries fences were
also moved many, many years ago which means burials not located in CHC may
be in either Maimonides, Mt. Carmel or Mt. Lebanon Cemeteries.

All this information was given to me by a CHC employee who was very helpful
to me as I tried to help someone who was searching for an 1890-93 burial.

*I have visually confirmed that family names across the fence in Maimonides
Cemetery are the same as those in the adjacent section in CDC. The names
noted were not common names but were names that *could not* have been
coincidental to be on separate sides of the fence.

I truly hope this information helps those who still may have missing burials
when an old death certificate says "Cypress Hills Cemetery". *And* I hope I
have not totally confused the Jewish genealogical community!

Sincerely,

David J. Priever
brooklyn1960@...

footnote (1): For informational purposes only, across Cypress Hills St. and
not effected by the Cypress Hills Cemetery border changes are the following
cemeteries: Salem Fields, Beth Olam, Hungarian Union Fields and Machpelah.
West of Hungarian Union Fields is Union Fields and the northern entrance to
Mt. Judah Cemetery.

Marijampol ?? #general

bettina glass <bettinaglass@...>
 

Hello Group,

You have been very good at helping to solve my various puzzles. Here is
another one, please. Is anyone familiar with the town of Marijampol in
"Russia" ? I first assumed it was Marijampol in Lithuania and tried the
appropriate LDS microfilm (birth in 1842/44). Unfortunately I find Polish
very difficult to read in the handwritten records and just looked for names,
planning to concentrate on full translations after photocopies were
obtained. I couldn't find anything that looked remotely like *Rachel Isaacs*
for the child, or *Isaac/Isaacs* for the father. I have twice ploughed
through the entire film without success. Since then, I have located another
Marijampol, in Ukraine. Assuming this one would also have been quoted as
"Russia" on an Australian marriage application form in 1881, I have ordered
the appropriate microfilm, same birth date, same names, Mariampol in
Galicia. If anyone else out there has searched either of these films, do you
remember seeing the name *Isaacs*? I can't believe that there were no Isaacs
at all in the Lithuanian town. Maybe they are all in the Ukrainian town and
I will find plenty to choose >from or they are in Lithuania after all and I
just could not identify the names. Any suggestions? Rachel's maiden name has
also been quoted as *Tapulski, or Tapusch*. That is a long way >from
*Isaacs*. Does it prompt anything in anyone's memorybank?

Thank you,
Bettina Glass, far north Queensland, Australia.

"The name Darter appears to be fairly rare. It is not
English, and there are few if any Darters now in

the 19th century, in one of the immigrations.

"Initial research on Avotaynu and JewishGen confirms my

I was suprised to read Christopher's comments that
DARTER was a fairly rare name and *not English*. There
are certainly DARTER in the England and Wales censuses
every year >from 1841-1901 and in total there are well
over 1,000.

I have rapidly checked through the censuses and some
DARTER are mistranscriptions for PORTER and CARTER.
I can categorically say, however, that nearly 99.9
percent of the entries are of English, Irish and
Welsh ancestry. Had there been many DARTER immigrants
from Central Europe we might have seen them in the
1871 censuses onwards.

In fact, the only sign of foreign-born DARTER I found
was Maria born on the Ionian Island of Lante in 1901;
one or two >from the Cape and significantly this family
in the 1841 census who may well be Jewish - but the
fact the son has the same name as the father makes me
wonder. The first names suggest to me that the may be
of French origin.

Louis DARTER appears to be in the glass business, but
it is hard to decipher. All lived in Prescot,
Lancashire.

Parents:
Louis Darter abt 1799 Foreign Parts
Josephine Darter abt 1802 Foreign Parts

Children:
Mane Darter abt 1827 Foreign Parts
Polina Darter abt 1829 Foreign Parts
Louis Darter abt 1833 - born in UK
Honorine Darter abt 1836 - born in UK
Augusta Darter abt 1839 - born in UK

So this DARTER family came to England between 1830 and
1833 and then mysteriously disappears >from all further
censuses.

I also checked the huge Yad vashem database and there
is ony one DARTER victim, we remember here today:

Source: Yad Vashem Archive Documentation on Romania
(Various archival sources).

Last Name: DARTER
First Name: Herman
Name of Camp: Radauti, Detention Site
Name of Camp: Transnistria, Camp
Material type: list of ghetto/camp inmates from
Romania
Language: Romanian
Source Page number: JM-11.296 # 2

If DARTER is/was a Jewish family name >from Galicia
they certainly were rare - I can find none in the
Jri-pl database nor in Vienna which had many Galician
immigrants.

Source: Yad Vashem Archive Documentation on Romania
(Various archival sources).

Last Name: DARTER
First Name: Herman
Name of Camp: Radauti, Detention Site
Name of Camp: Transnistria, Camp
Material type: list of ghetto/camp inmates from
Romania
Language: Romanian
Source Page number: JM-11.296 # 2

If DARTER is/was a Jewish family name >from Galicia
they certainly were rare - I can find none in the
Jri-pl database nor in Vienna which had many Galician
immigrants.
