What actually does it mean? Is it some kind of profession?
The -el in German and Yiddish is a diminuative, meaning small, not directly young.

Schrenz is a village, now a quarter of the town Zörbig,in Anhalt-Bitterfeld in
Germany,north-west of Leipzig. <https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schrenz_(Zörbig)>

Schrenz, populated place, 51°35' N 12°04' E, Germany 85.8 miles SW of Berlin 52°31'
N 13°24' E [Jewisgen gazetteer]

So it could[imho moore probably] be "the small man >from Schrenz",but etymological
declarations about famuily-names often are dubious, if the genealogy is unclear or
undeclared.

Adoption in Qheens, New York #general

Bernie Kuran
 

Hi all,

I've just had a close (1st to 3rd cousin) DNA match to someone who has only
recently found out that his biological mother was Jewish.

He was born in Queens, New York, in 1961.

However, it is his adoptive parents who appear as his parents on his birth
certificate.

Being in Australia, I have no idea whether it's possible for my "cousin" to
find out who is birth mother is, or even if there is a paper trail somewhere.

Any advice appreciated, especially if anyone has experience in this process.

Please reply privately.

Thanks,

Bernie Kuran

reassign your reservation to another IAJGS attendee ourselves and

Follow-up to "Question About Ukraine to US Travel Routes in 1912" #ukraine

Sheldon Rabin
 

Thank you to the many Ukraine SIG members who responded with info and
suggestions about my original query. They were all very helpful and I will
reply to each person with thanks. May I ask your indulgence by asking a
general-interest follow-up question about this travel episode?

According to the ship's manifest, my great-grandmother Reise Goldfarb
and the three girls, Sore, Basse and Chawe all traveled under the last name
of Czernitzer, not Goldfarb; and the manifest also states that the person
back in Kiwrotzi, Russia who knows them was "father, Berel Czernitzer".
Complicating matters, when they arrived at Ellis Island, they were all
detained for a short while until the "husband, Morris" (no last name noted
on the detention form), showed up. He must have been Morris Goldfarb because
only three years later, in 1915's NY State Census, they are all living
together in Brooklyn with Morris, but under the name of Goldfarb, not
Czernitzer. And later, when the girls all applied for US citizenship,
hey acknowledged that they arrived under the name of Czernitzer (which
is why it took me ten years to find their arrivals info), but their
applications all list their current last name as Goldfarb.
Can anyone help explain what I am looking at? It is a total mystery.
No one in my family had ever heard of the last name Czernitzer until I came
across it in the above documents. Did Reise, whose maiden name was Berman
per her NYC death certificate, have two husbands; did rabbinical and civil
laws in Russia conflict in terms of recognizing one or both marriages; or
did Morris and Reise change their last names once they were united, perhaps
because of a legal or other sensitive matter? I know I am missing a few
critical pieces of this puzzle, and I may not get to the full truth, but I
feel confident that my situation is not unique and that others may have
seen similar cases in their family histories. Any ideas that may help
explain what I am seeing will be most appreciated.

Thanks again,
Sheldon Rabin

Libau #ukraine

kenneth.ryesky@...
 

Sheldon was wondering about travel to the US via the port of Libau.

in 1912, my great-grandmother and her 3 young daughters (including my
grandmother) took a train >from Yelizavetgrad (now Kirovohrad), in the
eastern Ukraine, to Libau, and arrived in Philadelphia by way of
Liverpool.

Apparently, Libau was not an uncommon port of departure, for my
grandfather passed through Libau before he came to America and met my
grandmother.

sefansky@...
 

I am hoping that someone >from this group can help me research my
grandfather's family. After many years of searching, i was able to
get my father's birth certificate >from the archives in Zhitomer. It
lists my grandfather as Gdal-Bir KORKHIM ( in russian it looks
KOPXUM), a citizen of Polonnoe, and that he is the son of Dovid
Yankel. My father was also named Dovid Yankel, born 1920.in
Novohrad-Volynskyy/Zvill

I have no information on my grandfather's family because he used
papers that were given to his brother in law ( Sefansky/Czafanski) to
come to the US and he never again spoke of his life in Russia.
Probably because he was worried about being deported if it ever came
to light.

I wonder if anyone can help point me in the right direction as this
seems to be an uncommon name and one that I have never heard of.It
does not seem to appear on the list of names to search.

Thank you so much.
