I think the Shulkin's are from Kapyl. They immigrated to Sioux City in the 1890s and were followed by a great many of their cousins, including my own ancestors (who weren't from Kapyl).

I had a terrible time trying to find several relatives in manifests. In one case, my aunt's name was reversed!  So try searching for her last name in the given name area. In another manifest, my grandmother, Bacie Siberdi, was listed at "Basic Liberty."  I have no idea how they got that so wrong...they also listed her (in the index) as being from Germany, even though it said on the manifest that she was from Romania.  I found the manifest using the wold card (*) for the first letter of her given and family names.
Don't give up!

Hello Joe,

I just saw your message you posted 15 years ago about Chereya on jewishgen.org. My grandfather Aron Kreynin was born in Chereya in 1912 and I'd love to learn what I can from you. I also learn more about Chereya on my own and will be happy to share it with you. 

Please reply to me if you receive this message.

Re: Isaac MYERS/MOYERS b1829 Spittalfields, please can you help? #unitedkingdom

martyn@...
 

A couple of points. If you are trying to find Gravestones and/or burials do try "cemeteryscribes". It is a most useful site.

My family were fruiterers throughout the 18th and 19th and much of the 20th centuries. I have never seen any suggestion that fruiterers were also confectioners and I very much doubt that  was the case.

People missing between censuses may often be nothing more than death intervening.

In the 1820s your family would have belonged to either the Great Synagogue in Duke's Place or the Hambro Synagogue or the New Synagogue. They were all within the neighbourhood of Spitalfields and what was known for many years as the Dutch Tenterground. As its name suggests it was the area to which many poor Dutch Jews came when they first arrived in London.

Shalom,

Was LAX, the original name form Sighet

Or it was shortened once the descendants or family lived outside of Sighet?

 

You might consider joining Sighet Generation group on fb

Ask for membership

And answer ur questions

Maybe you can trace family members once you write a request.

Good Luck

Dear mother and beloved grandmother / Leah Block of the House of Zeltzer / Died 17 Kislev 5760.

Mr. Tzvi, son of Hertz / Died 9 Tammuz 5723.

My comments:

1.  Gives Hebrew dates (remember that Hebrew day begins at sundown).
2.  Gives Leah's probable birth surname, and Harry's father's Hebrew/Yiddish given name (look for confirmatory info in other records)
3.  The English inscriptions indicate that they were survived by grandchildren and great-grandchildren (and for Leah, the Hebrew indicates grandchildren).   Such information can give clues to chase down as to descendants [Example:  Husband is listed as a grandfather, but wife, who died later, is listed as a grandmother and great-grandmother; indicative of a birth in the interim.]

Best of luck with your searches.

Blumenfeld #romania

mariano.blumenfeld@...
 

Good afternoon everybody! I wanted to ask you to suggest me how to find information about my great grandmother MALCA BLUMENFELD.

My grandfather was named FROIM BLUMENFELD, born in Husi, on October 24, 1906. He arrived to Argentina in 1928.

His father was called MINASE or MINASI BLUMENFELD (my great-grandfather) and his mother's name was MALCA BLUMENFELD (my great-grandmother)

The problem I have is that in all the documents and photos (which are very few) she appears with the surname BLUMENFELD. 

 

For example, in the birth certificate of his son (my grandfather) and in a photo I have of her grave ... Always with the married surname BLUMENFELD (last name my grandfather had, my father and my family) .

 

I am sure that my grandfather was born in Romania (Husi) in 1906, but I don't know if she was also born there. Her date of birth is approximately 1870.

 

What do you suggest to me?

 

Thank you in advance!

Re: Family Tree of the Jewish People #general

wachs.sam@...
 

I strongly recommend using My Heritage. The free version will get you started, and the paid version will connect your tree with thousands of others and send you a notice when a match is found, thus enabling you to maybe contacting members of your family that you didn't know that exist. This is how I discovered relatives on my grandfather living in the US.
Good luck in your endeavors.

The Bravery of Abe Cohen during World War One #belarus

The Record of the Occupation of Bogushevichi, Belarus
Retold by Grandfather Abraham Zalman Cohen
"The Story of a Saber"
During the German occupation, I was taken to work many times myself also with the horse and wagon. This was mostly for a day or two. Then they let me go. Any occupying army can confiscate anything or commandeer anyone to do whatever they want since they have the gun. The Polish army was the worst. They occupied our country for a while. They were bad. This is something to wonder. The Polish people were split up under three governments, the Russian, the Austrian and the German for many years. They should have known what it means to be under somebody's rule, but they behaved miserably. They treated people like slaves.
.... I went back to the front position to be the lead wagon and they loaded my wagon with boxes of ammunition. The command came to move up closer to the front. As luck would have it, I happened to be up front, the first wagon. We started out. We did not go a half a vyorst and we see soldiers coming towards us from all sides. They are yelling, "Zavrutch, zavrutch", which means turn back. Now I am only a civilian and my orders were to go forward. So I don't turn. One soldier grabs a hold of my horse and turns him around and as I am the first in line, it turned the whole train. All of a sudden, the lieutenant who gave me the order to go forward came galloping on his horse and started yelling and cursing how come I turned when his order was to go forward. He is seated astride his horse, his gun on his side, the saber on the other side towering over me, a small boy, standing by his horse. I told him that the soldiers turned me around when they were running back. He kept cursing me with the choicest Polish curses. He grabs out his saber and a thought flashed through my mind. In a minute my head will be at the side of the road. As he swung the saber, he turned it and hit me with the flat side. It circled around my shoulders. I carried a blue decoration around my shoulders for a couple of weeks but I also still carried my head on my shoulders. I suppose I could not blame him much in the heat of the war. I was taken yet many more times for various services. They were a mean lot, the Polish army.
הגבורה של סבא אברהם זלמן כהן במלחמת העולם הראשונה
יומן הכיבוש של בוגושביץ
״מעשה בחרב״
מסופר על ידי סבא אברהם זלמן כהן
בזמשך הכיבוש הגרמני של רוסיה הלבנה (בלרוס) נלקחתי פעמים רבות לבד לעבוד עם הסוס ועם העגלה. בדרך כלל זה נמשך יום יומיים והרשו לי ללכת. צבא כיבוש יכול להחרים מה בראש שלהם ולחטוף כל אחת לכל מטרה כי הם הכח החמוש.
הצבא הפולני גם חנו לידינו זמן מסוים והם היו הגרועים ביותר. הם היו רעים. אני לא מבין איך הפולנים שארצם חולקה בין שלש מעצמות: רוסיה, אוסטריה וגרמניה, וסבלו כיבוש, יכלו להתנהג בצורה מרושעת כל כך. הם התיחסו לאנשים כמו עבדים.
אני חזרתי לעמדה הקדמית בשיירת העגלות והעמיסו תחמושת על העגלה שלי. נתקבלה פקודה להתקרב קרוב יותר לחזית, ועוד אני העגלה הראשונה בשיירה. התחלנו לנסוע אך לא התקדמנו יותר מחצי ויורסט כשראינו חיילים רצים לקראתנו מכל הצדדים. הם צעקו "זאברוטש! זאברוטש!" כלומר תסתובבו! תסתובבו! עכשיו אני הייתי רק אזרח ולא חיל והפקודות שלי היו להתקדם, אז המשכתי לנסוע קדימה. חיל אחד תפס את הרסן של הסוס שלי ומשך אותו לאחר. מכיוון שאני הייתי בראש השיירה כל השיירה הסתובבה אחרי. פתאום הופיע הסגן שפקד עלי להתקדם לכיוון החזית. הוא דהר לקראתי וצעק עלי וקילל אותי. אני נעמדתי ליד העגלה. הקצין שאל איך יכול להיות שהוא אמר לי להתקדם ואני נוסע לאחור. הוא העמיד את סוסו לידי והיה ישב גבוה על האוכף, כשהרובה שלו לידו. הוא הרים את חרבו ביד ימינו ואיים עלי, נער בסך הכל. סיפרתי לו שהחילים סובבו אותי מפני שהם נסוגים. הוא המשיך לקלל אותי בפולנית. החרב הורמה ואני חשבתי לעצמי שעוד מעט ראשי יפול לשולי הדרך. כשפגע בי הוא סובב את ידו כך שנפגעתי מהצד השטוח. החרב הגמישה התכופפה ונכרכה סביב כתפי. למשך כמה שבועות היה לי סימנים כחולים על הכתפיים, אך לפחות ראשי היה מחובר לצוארי. אני מניח שאי אפשר להאשים אותו בגלל שהוא היה מתוח מלהט הקרב. נלקחתי עוד הרבה פעמים ולקחו אותי למשימות שונות. הם היו רשעים - החילים הפולנים.

I see the Berall family in Husi. The Botosani research team has acquired and indexed the records.
Shaia and Freida Berall had three daughters and one son between 1882 and 1888, the son dying a few days after birth. 
I see also the marriage. Fathers names matches what you know.

Re: Jewish Records in/around St George in the East, London, England #unitedkingdom

Sometimes you can't get records from GRO because they only have records for certain years, so perhaps just check the dates (in years) you are looking for, with the years available on the GRO website.

See if there is anything in relation to Norwood orphanage which took in many Jewish children.

The 2 main groups (other than for Sephardi burials) are the Western Charitable Foundation Burial Society or United Synagogues, so check their websites.But then to find the plot, you need to know the cemetery. However, when I have called them, I have found them to be very helpful.
I hope some of this helps,
