I have found out that my grand father was really named
Eucie Davidovich-Souchotinsky
Maybe that is why i have such trouble finding any of the family.
If you can find anything about him I would be for ever grateful

Dina Klayman

Moderator Note: A helpful reminder for all - FORGET how to spell.
Close your eyes and LISTEN to the sound of the name. When you are
ready to start looking at lists - drop the vowels, interchange consonants
- then start your search! Good luck

background, complicated because he was an orphan, and discovered why her DNA
test surprisingly found that she had Ashkenazi roots. I'll leave it at that so
as not to spoil the story. In the process of telling this story, the article
goes into a lot of the how-to detail that went into the research.

Researching BUNSHAFT/BUNSHOFT family in Essex, Massachusetts #general

jeremy frankel
 

Dear Genners,

I'm assisting someone with their family research (person is blind and doesn't
have a computer). I've run into some interesting and confusing scenarios
regarding this family and wonder if there is anyone in JewishGenland who is
also researching this family?

I've already checked the JGFF and there were only three hits (all before 2009)
and no hits in the archived discussions.

Please write to me off list.

Thanks in advance

ORLOW family from Kherson, Ukraine #general

Lin <lin2@...>
 

I am looking for information on Michael "Misha" ORLOW >from Kherson, Ukraine
and especially his family. My great aunt Klara LEVI ORLOW, >from Markt
Berolzheim and later Nuremberg, Germany, married Michael Orlow and they
later divorced. I would guess they married about 1910 and divorced in the
late 1920s or early 1930s. I'm not sure when they married, but they must
have divorced in the 1930s. Evidently, he then moved to Vienna where he
played in the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra (according to his great
granddaughter). He was a violinist.

Misha was born in November 1882 and died in Buchenwald on 2 January 1940
at Buchenwald and according to JOWBR is buried in the Wiener Zentralfiedhoff.

I'd like out about his family in Ukraine if it is possible. On her Yad
Vashem testimony, his daughter, Bella ORLOW PFIFFERLING did not fill in the
names of his parents, and only Russia for his birth place. She gave very
detailed testimony for her aunts and uncles who died, so I am sure she did
not know his parents' names, nor any more about his birth place.

His daughters and wife spelled the name ORLOW and I saw a couple letters
where he did too. But on one letter to his daughter >from Vienna he spelled
it Orlof or Orloff.

If you know of the ORLOW family in Kherson, please let me know.
Thank you so much!

Sincerely,
Lin Herz
Palm

Re: regional Jewish records for Juelich (Julich & Umlaut) region 1780-1850? #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Many surname adoption records have recently come on line at
familysearch.org.

The 1808 list for Juelich is on line as item 1 on film 1334572.

As you surmise, there are no published lists for places west of the
Rhine, because the surname adoptions of 1808 continued to be valid under
the Napoleonic Code Civile, which remained in force in that part of
Germany until 1900.
