Re: Moritz Lehman #germany

Rodney Eisfelder
 

Deborah,
You said: "He was born in Sampelburg, Germany..."

I suspect that the town you are looking for is Zempelburg, now known as Sepólno Krajenskie in northern Poland.

familysearch.org has some films of civil records, but they cover a later period, and are only viewable from their libraries. They don't seem to have specifically Jewish records from the town.

My advice would be to look for American records - the marriage and death certificates of Morris and his siblings. They should name his parents.
Jewishgen's databases include the West Prussia citizenship list of 1812. This is one or two generations earlier than you want, but it includes 19 Lehmanns, one of whom lived in Zempelburg. Leyser Lehmann could be the father, grandfather or even great-grandfather of Moritz, but any of the 19 would be candidate ancestors.

I hope this helps,
Rodney Eisfelder

Moritz Lehman #germany

dzwinfield@...
 

My husband's great grandfather, Moritz Lehman, emigrated to the US in 1863.  He was born in Sampelburg, Germany in 1850, and eventually settled in Pueblo, Colorado.  (His son, Eugene Heitler Lehman, was the first American Rhodes scholar)..  I have been unable to find any information about his parents or earlier family.  Any ideas?

Re: Info on Leah/Luba Gertzovsky and possible son/ step son Jack Miller #belarus

Emma,

If Jack MILLER was in London (you have than photo) and assuming that Jack returned to the U.S., you can search incoming passenger manifests for Jack MILLER returning from London.

Hopefully you have an approximate year that Jack sailed from London to NY (either the first time, or later if he traveled more than once.)

The biggest entry point was NY (many other ports, of course.)  Here is a good place to start searching incoming passengers to NY:
https://stevemorse.org/ellis2/ellisgold.html

You can search for Jack (or maybe Jacob?) MILLER, town name: London.  You can limit the search by approximate year of birth or year range of arrival.

If you find Jack on a manifest than you'll have more info to find him on census, etc.

Good luck in your search,

Sherri Bobish

Re: Help - would children on ships records be named? Or just the adults/adults travelling with them #records #hungary #russia #slovakia

By the time my great-grandfather brought his youngest children to America from what is now Belarus in the late 1900s, the children names were listed on the manifest even though they apparently did not have their own passports but were listed on his passport.

Re: Help with the given name "Kuna" (from Belarus) #belarus #names

Michele Lock
 

To the original poster - 

What are your great grandmother's names on her gravestone, in English and in Hebrew/Yiddish? Those should provide some useful information. 

Here in the US, did she go by Kuna in everyday life and is that her name on census records?

Also - was she getting a visa at the US consulate in Riga?

I would add to that caveat that even the child's name might be wrong. An example: My Uncle Jack, whose legal name on the U.S. was Jacob and whose name on his Paris birth record is Jacques, immigrated from France to New York with my grandmother in 1912, when he was about 9 months old. The ship manifest lists him as Antoine, although no one in the family, including his children, has ever heard that name.

Zepel line assistance #ukraine #romania #bessarabia

josh.mintz.1987@...
 

Hello I have been struggling finding where my 2x great grandfather Zelman Hersh Zepel is buried. I know it is most likely in Europe. I do know he was originally from Smotrich Ukraine but then I guess he moved to Chisinau. I found my great grandfather's name and it showed Zelman's name as well. if there is anyone that can assist me with this that would be awesome.

Thank you so much,
Joshua Mintz


Re: What does "Na'az" mean? #names #translation #belarus

Thank you, David!
The relatives who had the blueprint made might have seen their grandfather’s headstone. That might be where they got the name. Noaz is a great suggestion!
Thank you again,

I have an 1868 arrival in New York, a baby is not named. There's a column on the manifest "Baby" with a 1 in it.

Re: How did my great grandmother travel to Ireland from Kyiv? #ukraine #general

Barbara Hemmendinger
 

My grandfather, Adolph Bahssin (née Abram Basin) traveled from Chernigov near where he was born in Starodub, Russian empire, to Libau (now Liepaja, Latvia).  I have documents showing that he had purchased a package ticket by steamer in 1911 from Libau to Hull, England, where he transmigrated by railroad to Liverpool and boarded the Lusitania there bound for New York. That ship called at the port of Queenston (now Cork, Ireland). He continued on to NY arriving in the US on August 4, 1911. 

Interestingly, on the same voyage, and with a much more formal reception as my grandfather, which he recalled in person to my mother, was
  • Japan's Admiral Count Tōgō Heihachirō, commander of the Japanese fleet during the Russo-Japanese War, was welcomed to New York City as a guest of the United States. After arriving the night before on the Lusitania Aug, 4, 1911 at 11:40 pm, he transferred to two smaller boats and stayed at the Hotel Knickerbocker. Meeting Mayor William J. Gaynor later in the day, he departed on a train for Washington DC that afternoon, where he was hosted at a state dinner by President Taft.[8]
