ViewMate translation request - Russian #translation #poland

Paul Cina
 

I would be grateful for a translation of this marriage record of Adela Klotz and Zysza Radzijewski which is from Konin in 1893.
 
 
I am interested in learning all the names, places and dates in this marriage certificate and what the actual surname is - JRI Poland has it listed as Radzenkowski but all other records have it as Radzijewski.
 
Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.  Thanks,

Re: Surnames and patronymics in Germany #germany #names

Dear Peter and all list-readers,

all the other people mentioned seem to have surnames. I just looked up: name adoption was „forced“ in Mainz from 1808 on, yet there have also been Jewish families in which a surname/„Geschlechtsname“ was used before.
You may use the name Gottlieb as an assumption for further research, but unless there isn’t a proof (this one mentioning in the death-certificate is no proof), I would keep my research broader.

Good luck and kind regards from Germany

I am searching for the descendants of a Lezier Teleshevsky who lived in Krichev, Cherikov, and Mogilev and eventually immigrated to England and a Khatskel Teleshevsky who died in Mogilev sometime between 1904 and 1929. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


MANSON family in Leeds, UK and Rabbi Menchen MENELE (sp?) from Kalvaria (Kalvarija, Lithuania?) #lithuania #rabbinic #unitedkingdom

Ravelle Scherer
 

Hi, this is my first time posting, although I have been doing genealogy for the past 30 years.  I have been researching the Rev [Joshua] Simon MANSON from Leeds, England. He was born in Russia (possibly Darishinishok) and died in Leeds on October 14, 1924. He was a Reader, Cantor and possibly a ritual slaughterer with the New Briggate Synagogue.  On his tombstone, it mentions his father N. Solomon MANSON who died in Leeds in 1892 and a grandfather who is listed as Rabbi Menchen MENELE.
from Kalveria.  I have tried to find a Rabbi with this name and have had no luck. I looked in information for Kalvarija, Lithuania and do not see a Rabbi by this name.  Is there another Kalveria?  Could the spelling on the tombstone be wrong.  Does anyone have any clue about this Rabbi or other members of the MANSON family.  I have already looked at on-line birth and marriage records for New Briggate 

On View Mate, Individuals were kind enough to translate the tombstone from Hebrew.  Here is the translation:

the first three lines are telling the visitor to this grave to think about the person buried here and to take a lesson from the way he lived his life. These lines are followed by:]

A precious person, may his light shine, he was a “Shochet u-vodek” [ritual slaughterer and examiner of meat to make sure that it is kosher] for his flock

He led his congregation loyally for 40 years

He went to great effort and worked hard to achieve permission from the administrators of hospitals,
to bring in kosher foods for the Jewish ill
And his work was very successful; his memory is a blessing because of his achievements.

Is he not the honored YEHOSHUA ARYEH son of Reb Shlomo Yosef
to whom G-d said, “come up to me”, and he came up
at the age of 70
on Tuesday, the second day of the holiday of Sukkot of the year 5685
May his soul be bound up in the bond of life.k

It is the English part at the bottom that mentions Kalveria.

Sincerely,

question about Russia to France immigration and name change #names #france #russia

Wendy Griswold
 

Wishing you sweet holidays and an end to this difficult situation, and
patience :-)

I am looking for some help researching a collateral relative, the
husband of my first cousin once removed. The family originated in
Russia and came to the US after lengthy stays in France and Canada. I
am at a loss as to how to research.

John Barabell (son of Benjamin and Sarah Cohen or Rachel) born December 24,
1886 in Plock, Russia/Poland .
Emigrated to France. Uncertain of emigration date.
Apparently, his brother Adolph remained in Paris, France at least as
late as 1927 because there is a record of John requesting permission
to visit him there, as well as other relatives.

John emigrated to Canada in June 1909, was naturalized as a
British subject in Canada (between 1921 and 1923), had 2 children in Canada
(Felix and Rosaline), emigrated to New York City in May 1923.

One of Benjamin and Sarah's (Rachel?) other son's, Mark, was born in
Russia (city unknown) in 1879 and also ended up in New York, where he
died in October 1929.

Apparently, whatever the original name was, it became Barabelle in
France (and there is at least one document showing John as Jean), and
the final "e" was dropped, probably in the US.

All the US naturalization papers show the original name as Barabell.

The burning question is what the original surname was. Seemingly, in
order to have any chance at getting the answer to this question, we
have to find the immigration of John and/or Mark and/or Benjamin to
Paris.

Many thanks for all suggestions.

I'm not sure if I'm reading the correct line 17, but here's what I see: Broome St., just above the name Mathes, and below that it looks like "Jerry St" but there is no such street by that name in Manhattan (NYC) so it could be Henry or Cherry Street, both of which exist on the Lower East Side and were Jewish neighborhoods.

Re: Great grandfather not from northern Lithuania? #lithuania

Simon Zelman
 

I'm not 100% sure if this would apply to estates but families were often registered in one town for generations after they moved somewhere else, due to the difficulty and complexity of changing the family's registration. I have several examples in my tree, one being my SLEVICH family that lived in Komay/Kamajai until the 1860s or so, then lived in Daugavpils/Dvinsk for about 30 years, and then moved to Vilnius where they lived until around WWI. Most, if not all, of the records I've found in both Daugavpils and Vilnius list the person as being from Komay, even if they were born in Daugavpils and had never personally lived in Komay.

BAUMAN from Kutno district #poland

Lesley
 

I'm new to this forum and this is my first post so I hope I'm doing it right!

I'm trying to trace the roots of my paternal grandfather, who was known as Lewis BOWMAN when he moved to London, probably in the first decade of the 20th century (he married my grandmother, Rebecca WEINSTEIN in London in 1910 so he must have arrived in England before then). The only document I have for him with any information about his family is his UK naturalisation certificate. It gives his date of birth as 10 March 1877, his birthplace as "Kutno, Warsaw, Poland, Russia" and his parents' names as Joseph and Eva. According to my father, the family name was BAUMAN. The only other written evidence I have in my possession of this being the family name is a photo of four young people, probably taken around 1930 with the names Jozef, Sabrina, Bela and Henryk BAUMAN written on the back and apparently taken in Warsaw. I don't know who these people are.

I have searched extensively in JewishGen and JRI-Poland with name alternatives for Lewis, Joseph and Eva and found nothing, even expanding the search to the whole of Poland. I've also searched for the four in the photo and again, nothing. I am trying to get hold of my grandfather's death certificate in the hope it might lead to a gravestone with his and his father's Hebrew names, which might give me another clue. But other than that possibility (impossible at the moment because of coronavirus lockdown), I've met that famous brick wall.

If any of this sounds familiar to anyone or if anyone can give me guidance on where else I can look, I would be most grateful if you could let me know.

Many thanks.

It was very common for Jewish couples to have only a religious marriage. If they needed to have a civil ceremony for some practical reason, they might do it years or decades later. Of course, one can only speculate what happened here.

BTW, none of the volumes of Divrei Chaim mention the author having a middle name "Yoel." That is likely an error.
