Joseph GASSNER from Krakow #poland #unitedkingdom

Looking for two Joseph GASSNERs from Krakow.  One a diamond merchant who went to Antwerp about 1888, the other to London before 1893.  Trying to prove relationship, probably uncle and nephew.  Anyone know anything about them?

Maiden name: Is it GUTMAN or SZTABINSKA #names

Marjorie Geiser
 

Hi all,
 
I'm trying to figure out if the maiden name for my 2nd g-grandmother is GUTMAN or SZTABINSKA, and could use some ideas/suggestions for searching.
 
Last year, thanks to Stanley Diamond of JRI-Poland, I was able to find a marriage record for my g-grandfather Isaac LEVINE/LEWIN and Sura ZYLBERNAGEL, in Warsaw, in 1897. In fact, in that record, I learned that Isaac's parents were (listed as) Mowsza Lejbka LEWIN and Fejga SZTABINSKA.
 
However, yesterday, while following hints on Ancestry, a name that kept coming up for Fejga was GUTMAN. In fact, I found a marriage record for Moszko Lejb LEWIN and Fejga GUTMAN, in Losice, Siedlce Gubernia, in 1858.
 
The dates fit, and the names are too close to be a coincidence. So, I think I have the right marriage record. However, other than an LDS film number (which I can't access while the Family History Centers are closed), I haven't been able to find anything that combines these two surnames, and I don't know who Fejga's parents were.
 
I tried doing various search combinations on both JewishGen and JRI-Poland, but am not coming up with anything different than these two records.
 
I'm GUESSING that perhaps SZTABINSKA MIGHT be her maiden name, and maybe she was married previously? But again, although I can find other Fejga GUTMANs and other Fejga SZTABINSKAa, I have no way to confirm if any are the right one without more info from her marriage record.
 
Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Viewmate Request - Translation Headstone Hebrew - #translation

Jeff Miller
 

I've posted a photograph of a headstone with Hebrew inscriptions for which I need a full translation of the Hebrew. It is on ViewMate at the following address ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM80481
Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

 What I know about my great grandmother Zipporah LANE is that her parents were Berel (Dov Ber) BLANKFORT and Chana WHITEMAN/VETMANOWICZ.

Zipporah was born in Lithuania in 1860, lived near Panevezys/Pumpenai area on an inn near a river [I visited the location in 2007] and came to New York where she died in Brooklyn, NY in 1941.

 Her obituary says she was a religious woman who studied the Talmud.

 Thank you very much for your assistance

 

Warmest Regards,    Jeff Miller

Marcovich/David Family #romania #general

Hello... I've been working on my genealogy on and off (mostly off) over the past 30 years.  Now that I'm back into it after at least eight years, I was very happy to discover so many searchable databases here on JewishGen.  Records from some countries have given me some amazing pieces of information.  While those in others (such as Romania) have been very disappointing.
 
My great grandfather was Isaac/Yitchak David, born about 1873 in Romania (probably Iasi or Peatra Neamt).  His parents were Shoyl Ber and Martem/Miriam David, who died around the turn of the 20th century.  Isaac/Yitzchak married Sarah Brener, born 1875, daughter of Moise and Raina Brener.  Isaac and Sara David had a child who died as an infant around 1896 (I believe that I have the child's death certificate, but I don't understand Romanian), and shortly thereafter, they emigrated to Montreal, and later to Boston. 
 
Isaac David (and his wife, Sarah Brener) had siblings who remained in Romania.  I know that one of Isaac's sisters was called Rebeka, who married a man whose last name was Marcovici or Marcovich.  They had several children, one of which was named Joseph.  We know that her children survived the war, as they were in touch with their American cousins through the 1950s. I believe that after the war they lived in Bucharest.  I would love to track down this Rebeka and her descendants.  Searchable records via the JewishGen databases have yielded nothing.  I have entered every name and combination of names, Hebrew and secular, as well as searched on geni.com and ancestry.com for possible tree matches.  I'm wondering if there are other resources for me?
 
Many Romanian Jews emigrated to Israel in the 1950s and 60s.  When I moved to Israel 20+ years ago, there was a service for finding lost relatives.  They were successful in helping me find some Brener relatives who moved here, but because I didn't know the given name of Rebeka's husband, there were too many possibilities to narrow the search for a Joseph Marcovich, son of Rebeka and Xxxxxx Marcovich.
 
Any ideas?

Re: Seeking 1940 ship name and manifest Lisbon to Mozambique Portugal Lourenço Marques #general

You probably look for the spanish ship Salvador, sailing under
 the flag of Uruguay.  The passenger ship departed from Istanbul, Turkey on December 11th, 1940, carrying  327 passengers -Bulgarian Jewish refugees. 
She had a capacity for only 40 passengers.  The ship foundered in the 
Sea of Marmara on December 12th, 1940. with the loss of 204 passengersRead more at :
 
I´d also like to mention that Lorenzo Marques was the capital of  the 
Overseas Province of Mozambique before it  became independent from 
Portugal in 1975. Since then the capital  was renamed Maputo.

Breina could also have been anglicized to Beth. There are no hard rules to corresponding Yiddish or Hebrew names to English ones, it's mostly preference.

ISAACS-PARKER Family #germany #unitedkingdom

Scooby Doo
 

Hi Everyone,

Hoping everyone is keeping safe & well during this terrible time.
 
I have struggled to find what happened to the family of Sophia BLOOM (c.1835 Merthyr-1888 Stratford) who married Jacob ISAACS (c.1829 Preußen-1898 Brighton) in Cardiff in 1858.  The family lived for quite a while at 23 Spring Rd, Birmingham.  Sophia Issacs is buried in Birmingham (I have a low-resolution photo of her badly worn Gravestone). 
Jacob Isaacs is buried at Willesden & I manged to locate & photograph his gravestone.
Using the UK Censuses & the GRO Indexes I established that they had 8 children (all born in Newport, Wales), 5 of whom survived beyond infancy:
 
1-Mark Issacs-(1859-1940)
2-Isidore Isaacs (1861-?)
3-Eli Isaacs (c.1862-?)
4-Sarah Ellen (Nellie) Isaacs (1866-?)
5-Hinda/Hilda Isaacs (c.1867-?)
 
Here is all I've been able to discover this far:
Most importantly, parts of the family changed their surname to PARKER
Lets start with Sarah Ellen "Nellie" Isaacs who married Joseph MORRIS in London on 20 Feb 1889:
- appear to have had 3 kids all born in Camberwell:
1-Albert Charles Morris b.1889
2-Mabel Sophia Morris b.1889/1890
3-Edith Rebecca Morris b.1891/1892
 
Have been unable to go any further with this family grouping:   Isidore Isaacs: * Likely to have also changed surname to Parker
* There is an Isidore Stanley Parker buried at Rainham
 
Mark Isaacs:  * He definitely changed his surname to PARKER
* Mark was 1st married to Maud Constance Woolf (Whose sister, Flora Norma Woolf married Isaac Harris whose mother Hannah Deborah Bloom-Harris, was a sister of Sophia Bloom as mentioned at the start)
* Mark & Maud had a son: Claude MAUDSLEY John ISAACS b.1888
* Maud Woolf-Isaacs died in 1888
* Mark married Kate Woolf (Not a sibling of Maud) under the name of Mark PARKER , in 1893
* Mark & Kate are buried at Pound Lane & I have their gravestone photos
 
Claude MAUDSLEY John SAACS: * He also changed his surname to PARKER
* His middle names appear as John Maudsley & also as Maudsley John in different records
* He was in the Royal Navy/Airforce- 2 documents at Kew
* He is noted as a commercial clerk in the 1911 Census
* On 20 Mar 1928, he was found not guilty in the "House Coal Association Fraud Case"
* He appears to be the person who married Eileen Maud Reynolds Mackey in 1922
* He appears to be the person whose death was registered in Hammersmith in 1964
 
* These could possibly be 2 sons born before the marriage?
Births Mar 1912-Parker Richard Bertram , Mother Maiden Name:Mackey St.Giles 1b 1071
Births Jun 1920- Parker George H , Mother Maiden Name:Mackey Fulham 1a 689

Re: Unsure if these are names! #names

Valentin Lupu
 

Hi Marylin,
All three words are Ashkenazi Jewish names from Eastern Europe. Leiser (Leizer, Lazar)  is a shortened  form of the Hebrew name Eliezer. Cerne (Czerne Czarna) is a name of Slavic origin meaning Black. Examples of using this form are:  The renown Russian-born Hebrew poet Tchernichovski, the Infamous nuclear plant at Chernobyl, Czarnogora (Black Mountain) the local name of Montenegro and so on. Breine / Breina is the female Slavic name derived from Braun (German) translating to Brown.
A good reference book for the meaning and origin of Jewish names is "Jewish Family Names and Their Origins"  by Heinrich and Eva Guggenheimer.

Valentin Lupu,  Israel

Try the Lloyds records at the Guildhall Library in London.  They have all Lloyds once-secret voyage records.   Someone there should be able to help you.
