As previously mentioned, there are many books on this topic, including “The Great Influenza;  The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History ”by John M. Barry, that mentions my second cousin twice removed Alice WULOVITZ, who was a 16 year old nursing student in Philadelphia who died after two days of helping to take care of patients.

My paternal  great grandfather who came to the US in 1913 and lived in Brooklyn died of the Spanish Flu in 1918. I have a copy of his death certificate which indicates influenza and because of the time period and previous family history I have heard I believe it was the Spanish flu. 


Unfortunately, there is no longer anyone in the family to verify the story or even t give me a history of what actually happened during that time. Wish there was but all if know about it is what I have read.

Re: Is there a way to find out who livved at an addres in Riga in 1922? #latvia


Hello Moshe, 

I recently was doing research on my family tree in Riga as well, and discovered that there seem to be Riga city directories available. You can search the web for "Rigasches Addressbuch." I was able to find Here is some more information that might help: You should be able to search by street or surname. 

If you want to see what the street looks like *now*, you can go into Google Maps, and search for variations of Roumanoff. The map should have the current street name, which is in Latvian ("iela"). ex: Roumanoff iela  (Strasse is the German word for street, as it was under German control at that time.)

Hope that helps!

Re: Percentages of ancestry - my Ashkenazi father seems to be partly of Italian/Greek descent? #dna

Sarah L Meyer

First ethnicity percentages are estimates - not set in stone.  As more data arrives they get revised.  I do suggest that you upload your results (download the raw data from FTDNA, then upload the zipped files (do not unzip them) to MyHeritage, which has more Jewish categories, such as Sephardic and Mizrachi.  I do agree that very small percentages are to be ignored.   As far as Gedmatch is concerned - the J test is outdated, and the other tests do not have Jewish categories, but are interesting. You can also upload to living DNA, but be aware that they do not have ANY Jewish ethnicity categories-- but you will get new matches.  The most important results that you get from any of these services is not ethnicity, but the matches, which allow you to hopefully expand your family tree.   You can definitely do an mtDNA test, but that should only pick out her Irish ancestry.  In order to get a handle on your father's Y haplotype, you need to test male first or second cousins on your paternal side.  For the second cousins they need to be sons of sons - so that you are looking at the "surname" line.  In my case I ended up testing two male second cousins - two sons of two of my paternal grandfather's brothers. (My father had only one sister and she died at 14 months).  However his father had two brothers, I tested them both with Y tests at FTDNA and with family finder.   We were all related using Family Finder - the autosomal test.  However, the two "second" cousins had different Y haplotypes - and were actually a second cousin and a 1/2 second cousin.  If your budget only extends to one second cousin - choose the grandson of the brother closest in age to your grandfather.

Thanks for the thinking it might be Varick. I tried a reverse search in the census for 1910, looking at both Varick in Brooklyn and Manhattan, but there was either no "120" or no Yurowitz at that address. The same was true for a different suggestion, NEVINS. I have not found the Yurowitz at that address either in 1910. 
I will try this for your suggestion of Third Street.

Years ago, I visited an office in PHila, and obtained several sheets of records for my father and others for the period 1935-45.


I can’t recall if there was a charge or “suggested donation”.  Somehow, I think there was.   The location of the records changed over the years, first to the Balch (sic) Institute, also in Phila, and then to Temple University Archives.  A Google or similar search engine search will give “you” the exact holders of the materials.  I believe that the LDS/Family Search have films, but I cannot quickly see if they are online.   I no longer live in Phila or nearby,  and Temple is closed due to Covid virus.

Woman adopted in northern Michigan seeking Hungarian-Italian father's family #usa #dna
From: michelle.cosier@...
Date: Mon, 25 May 2020 09:23:20 EDT

Dear all,

Maybe someone in the Toledo area can help me or other relatives...

I’m doing some family history research for my mom. I read a really nice article on the website about the Birmingham neighbourhood and it's Hungarian heritage.

My mom was adopted in 1965 in Northern Michigan. She had however a Hungarian-Italian father (we think from Toledo). In 1965 he was 34.  His dad was Italian and his mom Hungarian.  From the paperwork back in 1965 it says he was a college graduate, a successful business man, had remodelled homes and sold them. He had very dark brown curly hair, dark brown eyes and a dark olive complexion.  He was a good swimmer, diver, generally liked sports and he was a good singer.  He had excellent health, worked hard and was enthusiastic. 


He would probably be 89 now. 


It’s a really interesting story about my mothers search for her father.  She started off looking for him after she found her biological mother (named Grace Schutte, pronounced shoot) about 20 years ago.  Her biological mother was 22 in 1965 when my mother was born and her father and her must have met 1964 prior and we think in Toledo, possibly at a bar.  They both liked to sing and Grace was an entertainer and possibly also a sales clerk.  Grace hasn’t told us much.  It says in the adoption paperwork that they were expected to be married and then he didn’t accept his domestic responsibilities to want to raise their child.  She showed up at her sister's house back in Michigan pregnant and then my mom was adopted. It was a closed adoption.


Since she’s started looking she’s done a few DNA tests.  50% came back Jewish heritage… probably from the father’s mother's side but a few generations back because on the adoption paperwork it says her father was Protestant.  I'm assuming they must have converted during or after one of the wars. Anyways my mom's DNA is on my heritage, ancestry and 23andme, if you want to look her up and compare feel free or I have GEDmatch and can use kitnumbers.  Ruth Skop is my mom's name.


Maybe you could help me out with some clues…probably a long shot but doesn’t hurt to try.          Looking forward to hearing from anyone!

Sincerely,   Michelle    <michelle.cosier@...>

What happened to Charles Smolenski #unitedkingdom #usa #germany
From: Sue Coleman
Date: Mon, 25 May 2020 09:36:48 EDT

My greatgrandmother Sheina/Szeyna/Jane/Jenny Cohen nee Smolenski appears on the 1901 census with her two sisters Chayka/Annie Kalinsky nee Smolenski and Tilly/Matilda/Toby (Taube?) Bernstein nee Smolenski. I would dearly love to know where they came from. They lived in Liverpool and Manchester, England. It is believed they had brothers. The census states Sheina was 17 but her youngest daughter thought she was nearer to 14. On the 1901 census the three sisters state they came from Russia but Chayka's grandson told me it could be Memel which, at the time was East Prussia

Family lore tells of a brother "Charlie" who visited them from USA before WW1. On Ancestry, I found a Charles Smolenski who travelled from New York to Liverpool in 1912 aged 22 and originally from Germany which could seem to fit. However, I can't find his original arrival in USA nor his return after his visit

So what happened to him and where did he come from?
Any suggestions welcome. I have searched and searched for their place of birth but with no joy, hence trying a different angle and looking for "Charlie"

Many thanks in advance

A few people out there might remember me when I was more active in all things Proskurov.  That was my mother's hometown and she and her family (miraculously) survived the 1919 pogrom.   I had always heard that there was a Proskurov shul in NYC but that it doesn't exist anymore.  And that it was established in the late 19th turn of the 20th century. Two of my mother's uncles managed to get out before WWI and that way they were able secure affidavits for the rest of the family in the 1920's.

In regards to the name of the town, I have always insisted that we only use Proskurov because as most people know renaming it Khelmnitzky was salt on the wound of the Jewish people.
  Bogdan Khelmnitzky was one of history's most destructive anti-semites.  In fact within recent years the existing Jewish community has asked the town government to change the name back to Proskurov but they refused.

My mother was the fourth daughter born to my grandparents. She was born at the end of January in London, England, and the doctor told my grandmother not to bother too much about this child as she was sickly and not expected to live. My grandmother prevailed and my mother survived. Her birth was registered in April -- although the registration gave her actual birth date. So there's another reason for a delayed registration.

There were plenty of Jewish prostitutes all around.

Sholem Ashe's play "Got fun nekome"
 (The Gold of Vengeance) from 1906 is about a brothel in Poland.

New York City's Lower East Side was full of prostitutes.
  In fact, my father told a the story of his first school day. Apparently his parents didn't have time to take him and had left him home so a neighbor volunteered to take him.  He much later found out that she was a prostitute.

A quick search or two on the Internet will provide plenty of information.

Fani Jurowics in NY with Berta Davidowitz : Ship Manifest #general
From: Moishe Miller
Date: Mon, 25 May 2020 13:49:42 EDT

Dear Group,

My cousin, Fani Jurovits (born 1887), arrived in NY on the Bremen, 24 Sep 1913. Fani was my great-grandfather's baby sister. It was nice to see Fani's father as the last address in Europe. Moses Jurovics, her father, was my g-g-gf, and my namesake.

On the second page of the manifest (attached), Line 26 has Fani listed, together with her cousin, Berta Davidowitz, as going to some address that starts with 120, perhaps Nevins. I am trying to make out the name of her cousin that was her destination, as well as the address. The name is overwrittne. Can anyone read the destination?

The supposed cousin never showed up and Fani and Berta DAVIDOWITZ were released to the Clara de Hirsch Home (see the detained passenger list, attached).

I also checked the Bremen departure lists, but for 1913, they only seem to start in October, and there is a gap back to 1908.

I have found Fani's 1919 NY marriage to Jacob Zeisler, a widower. I would like to find out who this "destination" cousin was and, where was Fani between 1913 and 1919, and how were Fani and Berta related.

Thank you. Stay safe, stay healthy,

Re: Khamisa, Labi. Mimon, Gridish, Arud/Barud Dabush, in Zliten, Khoms and Msellata Libya #general



There has always been a lot of movement between the South of Tunisia and Libya - my own grandfather, born in Tunis, spent a year in Tripoli at one point. And we have some MIMOUN/MEÏMON/etc. in Tunisia, which might match your MIMON in Libya. For the other names, they're mostly unheard of in Tunisia, except LABI which we generally think came from Libya in the first place... To me these names sound a lot more Libyan than Tunisian - with the small proviso that we are rather poor in BMD records for the Tunisian South bordering Libya, so I might get the wrong impression. But we do have tombstones indexes (in Zarzis and Gabès), and these names don't appear in them afaik.

Also, it seems quite an achievement to have arrived to the early 1800s in Libya, I would love to hear more on how you did this. But the brick wall in Tunisia at this period is at least as hard as in Libya, if not harder, especially for the Tunisian South. The earliest records we have are those of protected subjects of the French consulate in Tunis from the 1830s (see my book here, together with L. Nedjar:, with very few Libyans. There is for instance a SERUSI of Tripoli (de Barbarie) in 1832, a couple of ZARD in 1850 and 1890, an AÏNOUS in 1846, a HASSAN in 1893. There are a few Libyan Jews in the archives of the French consulates at Tunis and Tripoli, held at the Centre des Archives Diplomatiques in Nantes, France, but mostly from the second half of the 19th century / early 20th.

I hope this helps,


ELLENBOGEN connection to CLARKE or SZKLARKIEWICZ #southafrica #poland

From a late 1890s photo taken in BULAWAYO of six men there is my great-great Uncle MAX CLARKE/SZKLARKIEWICZ and my teenage grandfather SAMUEL CLARKE and on the back of the photo is the name ELLENBOGEN. I see several ELLENBOGENS on ancestry websites and note they were from near JEDWABNE where MAX was born, also had lived in LIVERPOOL, UK, as did our family in the early 1900s, and then some were in Bulawayo too, no doubt on the photo. I have communicated with one Ellenbogen descendant, who did not know enough to connect our families. It's a long shot but if anyone has any information, I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks in advance for your much appreciated help.

I would recommend you double-check the results and do further research also on
It is a free service, you just have to register.

It is a very good source on everything about Austria and also captures parts of Germany, Slovenia, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
There is an English interface available.
I guess this might be of interest to other subscribers, too.

In your concrete case, I did a quick search that confirms your finding:

Last Name Gruszecka
First Name Anna S.
Code 2 (comment: code 2 means marriage)
Location Stadttempel (comment: that is Vienna's main synagogue in the first district, a nice building, it survived the November Pogrom only because it was too dangerous for neighboring buildings to set it on fire, my great grand parents married there, too; suggest you visit it when in Vienna)
BookVolume T
Date 1911
Number 547
Last Name Bride Birnbaum
First Name Bride Hirsch
(comment: if the main entry is for a female person, "bride" is groom ;-) )

Other than this entry, I also found the following:

No. 14825
Last Name Gruszecka vereh. Birnbaum (comment: "vereh."=German "verehelicht", wich means "married")
First Name Sofia (comment: the S. in the name I guess)
Date of Birth 1886.10.10
Birth Parisch Warschau,(Russland)  (comment: Warsaw part of Russia in a sense)
Rigorosen Date 1912.10.25 (comment: means she graduated from medicine on Oct 25, 1912, a year after she had married in Vienna).

There is another entry according to which she graduated on Oct 31.

Apparently, she was catholic at birth.

Hirsch Birnbaum might have been born in Krakow on July 16, 1885, also studied medicine in Vienna and graduated on March 3, 1912 (or Feb 10).
The different dates may refer to the dates of the last exam and the actual promotion ceremony, perhaps.

You can also find something on Hirsch at "Krakow vital records: births" on Jewishgen.

Re: Sharing family tree information #general

Theo Rafael

It seems that people get too hung up on "my work, my tree". It's not a contest of who has the largest or "the best" tree, though some seem to go that route. I think of it more in terms of uncovering the truth. 
Yes, you put in many years of research and built a well documented ancestors' tree, are you going to take it to the grave? What's the use of having it hidden or only shown in private to a few? It's your right of course to do that, but I would lighten up and think of it more in terms of researchers displaying/publishing their work for all to see.
I think that quite the contrary, having your research out in the open especially if you have done a great job with proper documentation, will correct errors that others may introduce now or in the future and will survive the test of time... This could be of particular interest when remote relatives bump into your research now or years later...
I for myself am very thankful to a couple of relatives that worked on their tree and made it possible for me years later to connect my research to theirs, many years after they have expired...
Obviously that's my opinion, quite a few seem to disagree.
