Re: Gershon Kleinman from Warsaw #poland

Jerry,

Do you know about what year he was born?  Do you think he came to the U.S.?

There are a few men named Gershon / Gerson KLEINMAN that lived in the U.S.

Have you searched his name at www.familysearch.org for census, passenger manifests, and other records?

Re: Kansas City Lithuania Jews #lithuania #usa

If any of you are familiar with the book by Anita Loeb - GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN,  I have been working on an update.  The database currently shows 319 Kansas City area burials which listed Lithuania as place of birth.  The actual number is surely much higher since many of the over 20,000 listings don't have a place of birth listed.  There are indeed Goldbergs and Ginsbergs.

Re: Birth records in New York, #usa

Em,

I assume from what you wrote that this child passed on before 1895, possibly in NYC?

I searched at: https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/2240477

I used these search parameters:
surname SIEGEL (left surname box unchecked to get more hits on variant spellings.)
born 1888 to 1892
died NYC
died 1888 to 1892
name of father: Samuel

There are two for Rachel SIEGELS.
You said her name may be Raizel, so Rachel is a guess at her English name, of course, they could have used any English first name.

There is also Salme Segall, but it does note that both parents were born in Romania.  These are transcriptions, so you would have to look at the cert itself to determine what is actually written.  These certs are very hard to read, and transcription errors are inevitable.

Unfortunately, what's in item 4 on that film is all that FamilySearch has for Szécsény, and it is highly incomplete. There's a summary of what's missing on image 418: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS87-S75H-M?i=417&cat=261203
I interpret it to mean that births between 1868 and 1895 are all missing (among others).

Whenever you find a new location to pursue, it's always a good idea to start with the gazetteers. They were specifically compiled to answer questions like "where's the church" or "where's the registry office".

If the person was a stowaway  it would explain bot why they wre detained and and why they were not on the ship manifest, as would if they were travelling under a false name.

Hi Carl,

Are you looking at the transcription, or a copy of the actual cert?

Those old certs are often times near impossible to read.  I suggest looking at the cert itself, and not relying on what a transcriber thought they saw written.

Perhaps try The Brooklyn Historical Society.  If they don't have files of such photos they might know other options on where to find them.
https://www.brooklynhistory.org/
According to their site, they remain closed due to Covid.  I do not know if they are answering e-mails.

Also, you might try The NYC Municipal Library:
https://www.archives.nyc/
They are also closed due to Covid.  There is an e-mail address on the above site.

A curious mtDNA question #dna

YaleZuss@...
 

It may reflect a propensity for the descendants of conversos to marry other descendants of conversos, even after leaving Spain.  That would result in an even higher degree of endogamy than is often the case for Jews in general.

"Nuseaue," like many names in Family Search's NYC indexes, is likely a transcriber's bad reading of bad handwriting. I would want to get a copy of the original death record to interpret it for myself.

Also, as you may know, Abraham had a sister named Nettie Biegeleisen, one of whose daughters was Ester Marion Thurm (c.1890-1978). Perhaps she was named for Nettie and Abraham's mother. Unfortunately, her gravestone, pictured on JewishData.com, shows no Hebrew name.

Re: Weinstock from Hungary: Romanian Nat'l Archives-Oradea, Reg.46 #hungary

Aaron and the rest of our community,
 
Wow! Thank you so much! I have been looking for this death detail for decades. I appreciate you doing the obvious and then sharing it with me. Over the years, I have done this same search, but with no results, which is why I thought to reach out to our group. 
 
The record you point out has Jonasz at age 73 in 1906, which yields a computed birth in 1832 or 1833. That dovetails nicely with the 1832 birth for him in the 1869 Hungarian census.
 
Would anyone know how I could:
  • get a copy of the record
  • get a picture of his tombstone

Searching for Brom/Braun family in Lithuania #lithuania

Phil Goldfarb
 

I am hoping that there are some great researchers out there who can help myself and some cousins with a brick wall. We are looking for the name of the wife of Mordecai Braun/Brom from Lithuania. We know that they had at least three children: Elka b~1850 who married Josef Fivel Jacobson, a son Boruch b~1855 who married Sara Matushon and Rachel b.1864 who married Benjamin Lit/Leet. The last town that Boruch Brom listed on his ship manifest was Svedasai, Lithuania. We know that Benjamin Lit and his family lived in Radeikiai, Lithuania which is about 11 miles away. Rachel Leet had he maiden name as Broun on her death certificate while Boruch Brom's ship manifest and death certificate had Brom.
Any help would be appreciated

Hi,
My father was Fred Klein, b. 1918, son of Arthur Klein, son of Israel Klein. They lived in Vienna, Austria, however, I don't know where they came from before they landed in Austria.
Sorry if this doesn't help. I thought I would send it to you because you never know if there is a link.

AVIGDOR rabbinical family-Pinsk (Karlin ?)18-19 th cent #belarus

When I was researching my maternal great grandparents' roots in Pinsk
I came across the name AVIGDOR . As I don't have that material handy
right now can anyone confirm or send me details on this family.
There's a slight chance that the AVIGDOR that's in my mind was the
first name rather than a family name but I doubt it.

Yerukhim,  I am not sure I understand your question.

For now, I am looking for translators/transcribers?  Do you want to be one of them?

Just let me know.  We still need a person who will work on Cheder's list for Khotin,

All the best,

Re: military notebook #bessarabia

Erica,

I think we saw here TWO different documents.
I believe that Adrian's document was given after the service ended.  It says in the beginning "Uvolnitelnyy bilet", which is given when person is dismissed.

Larry's document is different. It is like a certificate that a person completed his service and now he is in "opolchenie" - militia and will be going to service in time of war, etc.

All these documents have a lot of information for  genealogists.

All the best,
Yefim
