Seeking information about Hillel Kivovitz and family #belarus

lhcomac@...
 

As a result of my search for information about my paternal grandmother, I'v learned that she had a brother--Hillel Kivovitz--that I never knew about.  According to the 1910 census, he was born around 1880, came to the USA from Derevna in 1898, lived in Bklyn.  His wife's name was Mollie, and they had two children:  Gertrude and Seymour.  Would very much like to make contact with descendants of this family.

I have tried searching, using Steve Morse's gold form, for the town, and depending its size, one or more letters of the last name.  I haven't found my relative yet, but it may help.

In search of Noam BECKERMAN from Ukraine/?Crimea #ukraine

Peter Lobbenberg
 

 
Eugenia ZASLAVSKY was born in Kerch, Crimea (Ukraine/Russia) on 20 April 1903, one of eight siblings born variously in Kerch and in Genichesk on the Sea of Azov (also Ukraine/Russia).  
 
On 2 August 1919 Eugenia, aged 16, gave birth to a son Ura (later George); it is not known whether he was born in Kerch, Genichesk, or as one family document suggests, Kharkov.  Both Eugenia and Ura took the surname BECKERMAN, and Ura grew up to be told that his father's name was Noam BECKERMAN and that he came from Kharkov.  But there is no further trace of Noam, and nothing is known about him.  In particular it is not known whether whether he disappeared after getting Eugenia pregnant, whether they remained together and married, or perhaps something in between: or possibly he died young.  
 
In the early 1920s Eugenia's brother Abraham ZASLAVSKY and most of his siblings, including Eugenia with little Ura in tow, emigrated seriatim to China: initially to Harbin and then, in about 1925, to Shanghai where Ura grew up.  Noam - always assuming that was his real name - appears to have vanished from the scene.
 
Can anyone help trace Ura's father Noam BECKERMAN from this very sketchy outline, or suggest how and where it might be possible to make further enquiries?

17th century mixed marriages--Rhineland & Switzerland? #dna

howard sachs
 

DNA records and Geni tracings suggest material religious-ethnic crossovers in the century after Luther in Southwest Germany & Switzerland,.  Geni reports Vice President Pence has Weil ancestry with a Swiss cross-over in the 17th century (or late 16th). Y DNA  connects my closest all-male line with a "Pennsylvania Dutch"  migrant --early 1700s.  Similar tracings have been noted.  Any literature or comment supporting or rebutting this theory?  Howard Sachs, Kansas City

I found this record on Ancestry, but I am having a difficult time trying to find the location; the town is not coming up in my searches on Jewishgen.  A cousin has his birth place as Tiszadob, Szabolcs-Szatmar-Bereg, Hungary, but the record is different. I wanted to know if the  places are near each other.

Hi Danielle

Yesterday I wrote a long answer with important information from some passenger manifests, but it seems it didn't pass.

They sailed on the "Serpa Pinto" from Casablanca to New York on 7 June 1942, you will find some more information if you search for "Serpa Pinto".

Re: Eisenberg in Raseiniai, Lithuania #lithuania

Lin Mor
 

My Press/Pres and Schneider/Shneyder families came from the same area and had been living there for at least 3-4 generations by the time of WW II. Have not come across Eisenberg in my research as yet, there seems to be few known records from that area. Please share other surnames linked to the Eisenbergs and do list yourself in Family Finder if you have not done so, already. 


Re: Unable to find names on passenger lists #names

jennifer@...
 

OP said he believed the passenger arrived in the early 1900s. This is why I said to start by searching for a naturalization. Searching for a manifest without first searching for a naturalization in that era is not an efficient use of time. I was actually trying to answer the question at hand and be helpful to the person asking it. Had he asked for a lecture on the paucity of information in 19th century naturalizations, perhaps one would have been relevant. But I still recommend searching for them before searching manifests. Because limiting factors like addresses can give you more certainty you have the correct person. 

And certificates of arrival were required by federal law after 1906. So for someone believed to have arrived “in the early 1900s” there’s a chance some reliable information can be found.


Re: Re: Searching for Leah Noah Da Costa #unitedkingdom

Martyn Woolf
 

I have searched Bevis Marks records but can find no marriage between Solomon/Saloman da Costa and Leah (?), so it is possible that they were married in another synagogue, not Sephardi.  It is also possible that in  spite of her Jewish name of Leah, she was not Jewish and they were married in a church.
I will try in the next day or so to search through the BM records for the forename Leah and see if I can trace her that way.
Regards
Martyn Woolf

Hello,

I wanted to post a reply to a message. I can't log in. How does it work?
Don't ask me to search in the FAQ questions, it's too complicated. I
don't want to receive everyday a big list of topics.

I just want to know if there are replies to the 2 topics I sent.

Can someone help make it easier?

Thanks!

Landau family 18-19th centuries #poland

isak@bm.technion.ac.il
 

I am looking for early ancestors of Stanislaus Landau (or Landa), born in Poland about 1820, married to Anna (nicknamed Andzulku or Anschulka) who died in Berlin in 1919. They married in Poland in 1846 and had a son born in 1848 named Leopold. They relocated to Germany (Breslau, Berlin) around 1850. I am trying to establish their genealogical roots to the Landau's of Opatów, i.e. to R' Yaakov Landau (1705-1777), AB"D of Tarlow and then of Tarnopol (Ternopil in the Ukraine). R' Yaakov Landau had a son, Gerszon (Gershon) who was AB"D of a small town Rozprza near Piotrków Trybunalski. Direct descendants of this family spread to the region of CRARG (Czestochowa, Radomsko, Przedborz etc). For example, the son of  R' Gerszon of Rozprza, R' Izrael Aron, b. 1773, and his descendants were AB"Ds in Kamiensk.
