My Rafalchik family has an oral tradition of originating in Toledo, Spain
and before coming to the U.S. were living in Minsk Gubernia, Belarus,
(Berezino and Igumen) so why not Portuguese?

Since I found that one of my ancestral family names (OLYAN) is spelled
(Ol'yan) in Russian, and this spelling in Russian is the same spelling
used to spell the name of a Portuguese town called Olhão (pronounced
approximately as "olyaung"), it made me wonder whether it is possible that
Portuguese Jewish families ended up in the Russian Empire.

The Russian word sounding closest to the last name OLYAN is the word for
"deer" ('olyen'). My great-grandfather had the first name Zvi/Hirsh which
also means "deer."

Dear Genners:

Micah asked for help finding his relative whose naturalization papers
said he entered the US under the name Yankel ZAWLUCK in 1906.. I found
the match as Jankel GRAFELUK sailing >from Antwerp in 1905 whose
siblings on the manifest exactly matched the 1910 census for the
family in New York with the surname of SALB. It seems that somewhere
along the way, one of the clerks must have mistaken the initial Z in
the surname and written it as GR. Jankel/ Jacob remembered the correct
port of departure, but reported the incorrect year of arrival. (He was
three years old when he arrived, so it was all based on family
recollections, no doubt.)

Please direct any further correspondence about the Zawluck/Salb family
to MIcah, not to me.

Assuming the date is accurate (which might be the first mistake) The
New York Times shows only two ships coming in >from Antwerp on that
date. One was called the Rotterdam and the other the American.
Arriving the following day on November 26th was the Vaderland >from
Anwterp and nothing is reported arriving >from Antwerp on November 24th.

Armed with this information I went to Ancestry and did some searching
both on the ship's name and on the date. I hate to say it but I do not
think the lists for the Rotterdam or the American are loaded. I see
the Vaderland's list on November 27th but there are basically no names
on the 25th and only a few ships on the 26th and not the ones you need.

Maybe someone can come up with a different answer using wild card
searches but I would suggest looking for see if the lists for the
Rotterdam or the American exist at all. The National Archives should
be able to tell you if those lists exist. Also I believe lists exist
>from Holland for the Holland-American Line ships. I am not sure if
they cover the embarkation in Antwerp but it might be an alternative if
the New York arrival lists are missing.

German SIG #Germany STERN Family from Nidda #germany

Linda Shefler
 

As a continuation to my previous post, here are more STERNS that lived in
Nidda. I am attempting to determine if they are part of my STERN family.
The given names are common in my family, but I am missing information to
connect the individuals. If anyone is familiar with any of these people,
or has any additional information on them, or suggestions where I can find
more information, please let me know.

Meyer/Max STERN (born 1875 Lorndorf) and his wife Clementine (Klemmy) nee
ZIMMERMANN (born 1881 Nidda).

Sara (nee STERN) STEIN (1880-1932) daughter of Naftali STERN.

Ida (nee STERN) and her husband, Saly NAUMANN.

Recha (nee STERN) (born 1905 Nidda) and her husband, Jakob STRAUSS (born
1905). Regina STERN (1835-1894) - no husband indicated.
The marriage of Lena STERN and Moritz BLUM in 1905.

As an interesting aside, there was a book and movie about one of my STERN
cousins >from Nidda, the Jewess and the Hauptmann (Captain). Ilse STEIN
was the daughter of Hilde (nee STERN) and Leopold STEIN. Here is the
Wikipedia link to the story:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jewess_and_the_Captain

I have some lists of people >from Nidda and Geiss Nidda >from Prof. Stingl's
book, particularly lists of Jews living there during 1935/6. I am happy
to check the lists if your family was living there and share with you
whatever information is included. I'm not sure how complete they are, as
I was sent pages basically pertaining to my family, but I can certainly
check and let you know. As always, many thanks!

German SIG #Germany STERN From Bindsachsen and Nidda #germany

Linda Shefler
 

I am trying to straighten out a seriously confused STERN family! I
recently got information >from a book written by Prof. Wolfgang Stingl
called "Fragments of Jewish Life in Nidda". The book was incredibly
helpful in clarifying a lot of information for me, and helping me locate
several people who had been "lost'! But as is usually the case, with
answers comes more questions!
Juda STERN (born about 1813 in Zuntersbach) died in Bindsachsen about
1888. He was married to Johanna KAHN who also died about 1888. They had
a son Meir STERN (1851-1923) who also supposedly died in Bindsachsen.
Meir STERN was married to Jettchen STRAUSS (who died in 1883 in Nidda) and
then Sara EDELSTEIN (who died in 1934).
My questions: Is anyone familiar with this STERN family? I would love to
connect with anyone who is related to them. Where can I find BMD records
for Bindsachsen? Meir had a brother Jakob STERN, I don=B9t know if he also
lived in Bindsachsen and I don't know if there were other siblings.

Any connections or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If the records >from the Rabbinic school exist they should be in

Greetings. I have just joined the SIG.

my great-great-grandfather, Naftali Binder, attended the
government-sponsored rabbinical school in Russia, in Zhitomir, which was
open between 1845 and 1885, and which served as a teacher's college for 10
years as well. It was closed down in 1885.

Does anyone know if it is possible to find any records >from that
