Re: Records for Werner and Eisenhandler families for Nowe Miasto and Ulanov #poland #ukraine

Mjacobsfr@...
 

Hi Katie.
i passed on your message to my husband's cousin. He thought it unlikely there was any connection between your Werners and ours. None of the names you mentioned appear in our family tree. We are researching Tobias Eisenhandler, born 1865 in Nowe Miasto (I think, but I haven't managed to trace his birth record). He married Lea Werner, born 1867 in Ulanow. Once again I haven't found the marriage record. They had five children, all of whom took the name Werner (I am told this was not unusual for the time and place).
i hope you manage to advance with your research.
By the way, I have been without Internet for the past few days, which explains why I didn't reply earlier.
Best regards,
Maggie Jacobs


Re: Name changes before emigrating #names #romania

As far as the spelling variants are not necessarily wrong. You can find different spellings for the same family. My own Scheuer family in official records has several spellings from Scheuer to Scheier, to Sczayer. In American records it is sometimes Schoyer. That's why Jewishgen and other genealogical sites provide soundex searches. 
 
There are many strange stories about how names got changed. In my own family, I know that his grandfather definitely came to the US, the family here paid his passage, but no one in the family ever saw him here. He changed his name and disappeared, abandoning his wife and child. Sadly, it wasn't that uncommon. In other cases, the person just didn't like their name. My granddad from Lithuania got on the boat as Scharje Nuran and got off the boat as Reuben Neuren. In your case, coming from Lasi, Rumania, you may never be able to figure it out. I think Lasi had the largest Jewish population or the second largest in Rumania. Interesting, my husband's lost grandfather was Davod Marcus married to Yetta Schwartz, all from Lasi.

Re: LIVERPOOL HOPE PLACE SYNAGOGUE Book re 1836 to 1930. #unitedkingdom #records

Very kind of you, Kathryn, to take the time to look through the book. I have come across a couple of places where it is for sale at a hefty price! Even though the Clarke family is not mentioned, unless it is too long, would you be kind enough to list the contents or otherwise indicate the type of information the book provides. Basically, I am wondering if it would be worth buying a copy for an insight into the life of the local Jewish community in Liverpool at the beginning of the 1900s. Does anyone else who may be reading this thread have a recommendation of a book re Jewish immigrant life in Liverpool this era?

Thank you all,

You might consider nearby Paszto, Hungary. Less likely, the larger city of Pecs, Hungary.

If the householder was eligible to vote, they would appear in voters lists. If they owned or rented property they would appear in the property lists on Scotland's People website. My mother's family the Browns lived in this area of Edinburgh. I do suggest looking through Scotlandspeople website for resources. You pay for a block of views/downloads, according to how many you need.

Hi Arlene,

Your pictures on VM is vague and when come to the unique Jewish names, it's impossible to reed.
When you will try to do better pictures, will do translation without problems.
Thanks and good lack.

Re: Potato Latkes...are you Litvak or Galitizianer? #galicia #lithuania

Shirley Holton
 

In my family we always ate them either just with salt or chreyn (the Russian chren) - horeseraddish and beetroot condiment. Delicious. My husband whose father was a Galitzianer from Lvov says they ate them with apple sauce. My family are Litvaks - from Simnas in Suwalki gubernia.

Hi Nina,
 
Interesting Swarttz spelling, double " tt"
 
There were many ways for traveling
Possible the person who purchased and paid for the tick. Had a different last name  , at the time of traveling something came up and couldn't travel...so they sold under the same name
 
Once u were on the boat , no one checked  and if they did u would give them money, a piece of Jewlery, 
 
Everyone knew how important it is to be away from the home country
 
When arrival in usa, entered by the tick.
 
No judgements
 
Have u tried to contact IASI, ARCHIVES, to get a birth certificate under the MOSCOVICI last name?
 
Good luck

Elani,

At this time the LVIA Lithuanian State Historical Archives does not have any images available online.

Should you decide you want to order a copy of the record the process to follow is:
1) send an email in English to istorijos.archyvas@...
2) with all of the information as listed in your photocopied record; emphasis the address LVIA/1236/3/827 because that is the exact place in the archive where the physical record is stored
3) the archive will reply explaining how much money you need to forward
4) once you have sent the money required, the archive then sends you the record.

Grodno Gubernia Revision Lists #records #belarus #general

Robert Mandelbaum
 

I had always known that a particular branch of my family came from Skidel, in Grodno Gubernia, but further research revealed that they had earlier migrated from the nearby town of Ozery. In the 1874 Revision List for Ozery, my ancestor’s entry contains the following comment: “Assign to Skidelsky Jewish society, transferred to State Treasury on June 19, 1878.” Does anyone know just what this would have meant?

Thanks very much,

My family Arbeit/Albert lived in Sandisfield, not far from North Adams.  It wasn't until the early 1920's.  They ran a kosher dairy.  I always wondered why they had come up there.  If there was an established Jewish community in the area, it would make more sense.  Thank you!

Klauznikaite- Lithuanian Jew emigrated to Detroit #usa

Jbaltmanas@...
 

Hello there! I am so excited I found this group. Thanks for adding me. I can use any help or advice! 
 
My great great grandparents through my father were Jozelis Klauznik and Golda Klauznikiene [maiden name Volfsonas]. 
 
They had four children that I know of. One of them was a Jewish bride that a Jew in Detroit purchased and married. They had children, and he had a successful construction business here in Detroit. They sent letters and photographs for a long time back and forth before they married. I don’t know her first name, but her maiden name was Klauznikaite. My grandfather’s second wife destroyed all the documents before they could be photocopied so I’m kind of on my own now.
 
•I am guessing she finally moved to Detroit sometime around 1920-1940. 
 
•Does anyone know a Jewish construction company that was popular at the time?
 
•Does anyone know how to track Jewish brides? 
 
•Does anyone know of a way to track my relative? I’m very experienced with genealogy searches and have looked everywhere online, but I don’t know if someone else has a recommendation.

This is my great grandmother, Feige. I am looking for her sister.
