Seeking descendants of Chaim WEG from Jaroslaw/USA #names #usa

Moses Jefferson
 

I’m looking for living descendants of Chaim Weg who born in Nowy Sacz c. 1879, lived in Jaroslaw, Poland and emigrated to the United States in 1924.

The issue is regarding a letter written to him dated 1935, which apparently is in the possession of his family.

Please respond privately.

Re: Yiddish male given name 'Kos' #poland #names

kosfiszer8@...
 

My last name KOSFISZER is made up of the first name Kahat (Kohos) and Fiszer. I have documents showing that  my ancestors signed their name with Hebrew characters using the two names separated, and the names were joined later on. Agree with Yossi Yagur. My ancestors were from the Lublin area. Regards.

Re: Researching Family in Cardiff #unitedkingdom

rv Kaplan
 

Thanks everyone.  I have been in touch with Tony Blasebalk today about all this, but to summarise:

Although I've been researching this family for many years, my recent enquiry was because I had just looked at the Cardiff cemeteries databases online and spotted the grave of Reuben Levine (previously Levy) in Cardiff from 1951.  His first wife Minnie was my great-grandmother's sister and they were married in Glasgow in 1892.  Minnie died in Cardiff in January 1910.  Don't know where she is buried (as Levine or Levy).  

The Jewish Chronicle in 1951 carries a death announcement for Reuben and mentions his then wife Annie and a list of children (of both his marriages).  Tony has put me in touch with what I hope is a descendant of this couple.

Reuben was sufficiently part of the Jewish community in 1951 for him to have been described on his tombstone as 'Hechovor,' which doesn't sound like a man who is estranged from religious observance.  Also, his Hebrew name is 'ben Chaim' and his 1892 civil marriage certificate lists him as son of Hyman Levy - all tallies.

I did wonder whether anyone today remembers old Mr Levine (he was 89 when he died) shuffling into shul in his later years and the fact that he had a blind daughter from his first marriage.  His daughter Rachel Levy/Levine married out of the faith in 1936, but did not die until 1962, so again, someone may remember her.

Dear Mr Kaplan,
 
I received an enquiry from Lorraine Silver and Norma Levison on 5th Oct re Levy / Levine family history in Cardiff.
 
I should first mention that both the cemeteries of Cardiff United Synagogue are viewable on line with pictures of each grave and a full listing.
 
Go to      (cut and paste)     
 
 
and       
 
 
Scroll down, Enter a first letter  of the person you seek,  and then below it comes all the people who are buried  there whose name begins with that letter.
 
 
 
There is a Minnie Levine, wife of Barnett Levine listed with a picture of the memorial stone at Highfields Rd.
 
There is a Reuben Levine also in Highfield Rd cemetery also with a picture of the memorial stone. He died March 12th 1951.
 
Golda Levine is also buried in the same place. She died 22/9/1967.Looks like she didnt marry.. The stone is very clear. to read.
 
There is a Lena Levine in Ely cemetery. She died 10/12/1977. She was 88yrs old, and the daughter of Rev H. Hamburg ( of Cardiff) so
probably no connection.
 
There is a Minnie Levy in Ely cemetery  who died 20/11/2004 aged 91 yrs. Again a clear gravestone but probably not your family.
 
There is also a Maurice Levy ( of Bristol ) who died 30.1.1921, but I suspect this is not your family.as he was 66 yrs old. Gravestone is viewable
on enlargement.
 
There is also a Annie Levi in Highfield Rd but she died in 1949
 
 
Please peruse the cemetery websites as they are easy to use and f.o.c.
 
I have checked Cardiff Jewish marriages on CD Rom from 1851-1912 and none of the people you mention appears. After 1912, the ledgers are available for manual checking but I do not have access to the shul at present.
 
I could do this for you but perhaps Neil  or Rochelle Schwartz would be prepared to do this for you after simchas torah ? 
 
As you write, Annie Savitcky married in June 1910..in FreeBMD she is down twice on the same date as Anie and Annie!
You can get a copy certificate in due course. 
 
My only other thought about the Levine family is 1) they left Cardiff or 2) left Judaism or 3) moved to other Welsh Jewish centres.
 
I have Newport, Swansea and Merthyr Tydfil records if needed.
 
Cardiff Reform shul didn't open til 1940s or 1950s but I have their burial records too
 
I hope some of this helps.
 
Kind regards

Alternate names for Mollie Schiff #names

SUE KAHN
 

I’ve been searching for any immigration papers for my great aunt Mollie Schiff from Slutsk. I have found all of her half and full siblings ship manifests but I can’t find hers. According to the 1900 census she came in 1890. The 1905 NY State Census states around 1897. I know she could have picked Molly for any name but what are some common Hebrew, Yiddish or Russian names for Molly?

Re: Need suggestions for how to search for misspelled family names #records

jbonline1111@...
 

Lots of good suggestions here with wildcards and Soundex systems.  However, you may also want to check for transposition of letters.  My father's birth certificate, for example, says "Slominsky" rather than "Slonimsky."

Hi Gary,

After looking at the photo of the residue of the Kamemetz-Podolsk records that you providedssI have decided to look for info about family from Izyaslav, Ukraine. Do birth and marriage records exist and are they available.

Many thanks,

Hello Bernard,

I would suggest that if you have not already done so, that you do searches in the 1891, 1901 & 1911 England & Wales Census and the 1939 Register to start with
using www.findmypast.co.uk  Use firstly www.freebmd.org.uk for Births, Marriages and Deaths this is a free to use website.

Re: Looking for Vselyub Cemetery #belarus

kdomeshek@...
 

To everyone who has replied here and to me privately...THANK YOU!  The research community is amazing.  In such a short time, valuable help has come from a half dozen people in Israel, Belarus, and the US.  Here is a progress update.  There is reliable information from a descendant that over 100 families were in this shtetl before the war.  As referenced above, cemetery restoration was done in 2006.  A panoramic photograph has been found that shows about 50 headstones from that restoration.  However, there is also evidence that more stones exist, but were not set upright or read/rubbed.  An archive of photographs from the restoration has been located and will be scoured for clues.  A photograph of one headstone rubbing is in the archive.  It was for Bryna/Braina, daughter of Shlomo, wife of rabbi Yaakov Libowicz.  JGen researchers from this area, who have searched for Libowicz, have been emailed.  A list containing Jewish names on 55 stones has been found.  Two of the names were immediately recognized as belonging to a survivor family.  This family was part of the early nucleus of Bielski Partisans.  From a memoir that this family published, one of the names in this cemetery now has a face and a final resting place.

Shalom.  Ken Domeshek.  Houston

Re: comparing two names מאניש and מזיש #names

relly800@...
 

My thought too that the nun/vav difference is an error.
One tombstone is in yiddish (using the aramaic 'bar' for son of), accounting for the alef in the name, which is missing in the second tombstone, which is in Hebrew (with ben for son) of.

Peter - have you tried searching the South African National Archives online catalogue in the first instance for your family names? You can also use other search parameters, such as address. Try:  link: http://www.national.archsrch.gov.za/sm300cv/smws/sm300dl

Looking for family of Tsoglin from Chernigov and Semenovka #ukraine

earl zeitlin
 

I am contacting you whether anyone has any information regarding the family name Tsoglin. My paternal grandfather Isadore Zeitlin born in 1889 was Israel Tsoglin in Russia (now Ukraine). He lived in Semenovka NE of Chernigov, then later Chernigov. His Hebrew name was Yisroel Yeshiah ben Shlomo Chaim). He came to the US in 1911 settling in Chicago. His father was Shlomo Chaim ben Zvi Hersh. His mother was Henya Surkin. His wife was Chana Resnick of Svencionys, Lithuania. The family was in the leather hide business. Any information would be appreciated. I previously prepared a letter in Russian sent to the archives in Chernigov but had no response.

Swedish Death Records: VON KRASKOWSKI #records

ruthlynn33@...
 

Hello,

My mother’s cousin, Thekla (or Johanna Tekla) KANN, was born on 10 Jan. 1890 in Peitz Krs. Kottbus, Germany, to Berthold KANN and Josephine MANUEL KANN.

She married Georg VON KRASKOWSKI on 22 Sept. 1922 in Stockholm, Sweden. Georg died in Stockholm on 11 August 1932.

How can I find Thekla's death date and place? I’ve checked JewishGen, Ancestry, FamilySearch, and MyHeritage, but to no avail.

Thanks for your help.

All the best,

Re: Translating/ identifying town origin of postcard #names #general

yitschok@...
 

The town is apparently Ostrowiec Poland.
https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Community.php?usbgn=-520544

The date looks like 5/6 1933 which is June 5th, the mess around the 6 looks like a correction from 5/5 to 5/6.

I'm not familiar with the Polish language, but I believe the word before the date is something like "the" or "dated" not the name David.

There is a Hebrew name pronounced Catriel in modern Hebrew and Cosriel [Kosriel] in Ashekenzic Hebrew. Kos could be a nickname for Cosriel. If you know where he is buried, you might be able to see if his full Hebrew name is on the marker.
