Rabbi Nachum P. BROMSON (BRAMSON?) of Lithuania #general

Alexandra Alznauer <petiealznauer@...>
 

I am researching Rabbi Nachum P. BROMSON of Lithuania. Last night I saw an
old, framed portrait of him hanging in the house of a descendant.

The Rabbi's two daughters were married (at different times) to the same man,
Tanchum SILBERMAN (born in Pasvintys, Lithuania in 1865). If anyone knows
anything about this Rabbi or any writings he may have published, please
contact me privately.

FRIDMAN or FRIEDMAN family - Girtagola, Lithuania #general

I'm looking for any information on FRIDMAN or FRIEDMAN >from Girtagola
(Girkalnis), Lithuania. I have an old photograph >from Rasein (Raseiniai) of
a relative who may be Freyde FRIDMAN who was born in the middle of the 19th
century.

EIDB Correction Finally Made! #general

Marion Werle <werle@...>
 

Some time ago, I made a correction to the EIDB, and for months, I kept
looking, and found that no correction had been made. However, after reading
Nancy Kendrick's posting below, I went back to the EIDB, and lo and behold,
they had actually made the correction! The manifest in question originally
showed my paternal gm and namesake, Itte Skuder, listed as "Jtte Skuder".
It was pretty apparent, in looking at the rest of the manifest, that the
capital "J" in other names was completely different than the "I" in "Itte".
I pointed this out and also indicated that Itte was a common Jewish name.
It took a very long time, but they did make the correction.

BTW, I notice that the error was perpetuated slightly differently in the
Ancestry.com Passenger List Database, where it shows up as "Jite". I
submitted a correction there, and now there is a little plus sign near the
name "Jite", and when you move the cursor over the plus sign, it says "Other
possible names: Itte Skuder".

Excellent suggestion, if it would work. Many subscribers to this list, to
include me, have sent corrections to EIDB to no avail. I have tried to get
them to correct one particuar item for about two years. It's as if it the
correction link is to passify us.

If anyone on the list has had success with getting something corrected on
EIDB, please email me your technique privately.

Dennis, I cannot help you with the former place, but Kazimirshoff
appears to have been in Courland [now Latvia] in the Pfalzgrafen
community in the area of Mitau. Today that would be in the Jalgavas
area.

Name on Census-Viewmate #galicia

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

I need suggestions on deciphering a name on a census record >from the
Bronx, New York in 1930 of a Galician/Austrian man.

A close-up of the name appears on Viewmate. No clue what it might be.
Any and all suggestions appreciated, sent to me privately, please.
Here's the link:

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=8914

"Scrotha Bearus" is the best I can make out, which makes no sense at
all. He is listed as the "father-in-law" of Louis Kaufman, and father
of Louis's wife, Sophie. Both >from "Galicia." Discovering his surname,
will provide her maiden name, which is what I'm after.

Thanks!

Children: Minnie, Marie, William, Harry, Sophie,
Rose, Frances.

Salkin and Washavsky both lived in Malden, MA in the
early 1900's. Then in New York City.
Kaplan lived in the Bronx and Manhattan.

Please respond privately.
