Hi to all,
I just joined this site after finding through dna that I am 49.9% Ashkenski jewish! I am so happy to find this information. I was given away at birth and know nothing of my genetics. I am desperate to find any information. I was born July 19,1947 in Bakersfield , California in Kern County. Listed on my birth certificate is George White and Irene Arrow from San Franciso, California. I am not sure if this is correct information. I was given to Floyd and Estelle Le May and never formally adopted. If anyone has any information, I would be enterally grateful!

Most probably not the same Max Ellman. The one naturalized in 1924, was born on May 14, 1889 in present-day Ukraine. The military records are for a  Max Ellman born on Nov 20,1891 in present-day Poland.

Re: Alternate locations for an Orthodox wedding/marriage ceremony in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania #usa

Sherri Bobish
 


Marcia,

My parents married in the rabbi's office.  This was in Brooklyn right before my Father went to The U.S. Army at the start of WW11.  After the ceremony they had a small party at my maternal grandparent's apartment.  They didn't even have any music because my paternal grandfather had recently passed away, and my maternal grandfather said music would not be appropriate.

As far as I can tell, large weddings (for most people) did not become common until the 1950's in The U.S. As with everything, I'm sure there were exceptions.

Regards,

Sherri Bobish

Hello,

 

Thank you in advance for any assistance translating this note to my Saba (grandpa), from I believe Moshe Shertok, also known as Moshe Sharett.

 

Moshe Sharett, Israel’s first foreign minister (1948–56) and second prime minister, replacing David Ben-Gurion who in 1953 retired temporarily.

 

The signature resembles that of Shertok on the list of signatures from the Declaration of Independence, last name on the left, but I could be wrong: https://www.knesset.gov.il/docs/images/signatures.jpg

You are quite right

In early Israel, and with Israeli fervor, Ben Gurion demanded that everyone should Hebrew-ise their names.
That is when Shertok became Sharet

Deutsch from Nagy Kalo (Carei, Romania) #romania

Moishe Miller
 

Hello,
My gg-gm was Mali (Malka) Weiss, born about 1867 to Herman (Tzvi) Weiss and Czili (Silka) Deutsch. As per the birth records of Mali's children, Mali was born in Nagy Kalo (today Carei, Romania). I also found an 1863 census entry (Ecclesiastical Conscription 1863) at szatmar.us/db/videki szuletesek.html that shows the family living there. Herman & Czili and four known children:
  1. Regina (b. 1860)
  2. Marton (b. 1862)
  3. Mali (1867-1940), married to Bernát (Dovid Dov) Hercz 1860–1909 
  4. Tereiza (b. 1869), married to Samuel Yeshayahu Frank
I do not know where Herman and Czili were from. I do know my gg-gp's are DIFFERENT than the Herman and Zili in the 1869 census of Ujhely. Based on Herman's tombstone in Nyirbator from 1900, I know that at some point the family moved from NagyKalo to Nyirbator and that Herman's father was Yizchok (Iszak/Ignacz). I did not locate the death record or tombstone of Czili, presumably between 1908 and 1920. Does anyone have family that might connect to mine?

Re: Chelmno - Fate of Buchbinder Family (6 Members) #lodz #poland

Bernard Flam
 

Hi from Paris,
Dear Lisa, 
I just copy what I have already replied many times on this forum :
  • Lodz hadn't been destroyed during Shoah and WWII, so all vital records are available from 1850 (ca. establishment of this city) to 1939.
  • During Shoah (Holocaust), you know Lodz had been transformed in a large ghetto, from early 1940 to June 1944, where ca. 240.000 of our Lost survived and died (in Chelmno and elsewhere)
  • During ghetto period, its Judenrat (Jewish administration under nazi rules) had ca. 14.000 clercs : they filed ca. 800.000 pages of archives which hadn't been destroyed and are available at USHMM : thanks again Ms. Megan Lewis, Library Referee who helped me to discover and understand structure of these huge archives. USHMM "Finding Aid" is 165 page thick, enough to present ca. 800 rolls of 1000 microfilms. You can download it on USHMM web site.
  • Now, a large part of these archives are available on Polish State archives at https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/278/0#tabZespol . These archives are same microfilms as USHMM, but aren't already fully on line.
  • With these archives, you can follow fate of almost all our Losts, from their early entrance in ghetto to their last day...
  • "Residents" lists have been indexed by Yad Vashem and ORFLI : they are available in JewishGen, as are ID card of ghetto workers.
  • But you have much more to find in these archives, survival and final destruction of the 2nd largest Jewish community of Poland...
  • In Israel, OFRLI, Organization of former Lodz Inhabitants, display ca. 10.000 pictures taken in Lodz ghetto and a lot of informations :
                       http://www.lodz-israel.co.il/text/org-eng.html     
        For me who is lucky to have tens of pictures of my Lodzer family, I can't look at these pictures without trying to recognize my Losts...

Re: Vinitsky/Winitsky from Detroit, Mich. #usa

Joel Ives
 

My uncle was Abraham "Roy" Wenitt  (1906-1991.) The only information I have is that his father Isador Wenitsky  was from Russia.  His grandfather was also Abraham Wenitsky. The family lived in the Bronx, New York.  It appears that there are many spelling variations for this name so, I would research as many spelling variations as you can think of.

Re: Old lineages (don Vino = Weinstock) #hungary

Moishe Miller
 

Hello,
I have a similar story in my family. I was told my late grandmother's family was originally known as "don Vino" and where wine merchants in Spain. At the time of the inquisition, they relocated to the Tokaj-area of Hungary and changed adopted the surname of Weinstock. My paper trail takes me back to the late 1700's in Hungary. Ancestry confirms I have 1% Spanish ethnicity. 

I wish there was a way to learn more about that part of my heritage.

Trying to Make Sense of a Jewish Welfare Board, War Correspondence Entry #records

Eric Ellman
 

Friends,

I do not understand what's going on in an entry for the Jewish Welfare Board, War Correspondence Entry.  Can someone help?  The docs concern Max Ellman (1890-1963)

Max Ellman, Army No. 1907079; Beneficiary, Selke Ellman (daughter); c/o Etel Tsiril Schwartz (grandmother and guardian), Saratov, Russia; Nature of Claim, Allotment and Allowance; Located through information given by [Max or Mrs.] Ellman; Allotment and allowance due to daughter was recent settled by check upon forwarding proper papers to Veterans Bureau; case closed.

Comments and questions:
(1) I have a vague idea of what's going on here, but I can use some more help?;
(2) What year might this record be from?  According to Max's headstone application, Max enlisted 9/19/17 and was discharged 9/27/19;
(3) Max Ellman was from Minkovitz, Ukraine in the Kamyanets, Podilsky. He married his wife, Rachel (or Jennie) there in 1912 and immigrated to New York in 1913.  Sartov is light-years (1,600 mi.) from Minkovitz so that seems strange to me.  I have a high degree of confidence I have the right Max Ellman since the Army serial number on the JWB document matches the Army serial number on the headstone application in 1963 and the headstone application matches everything I know about Max.  Nu?
(4) On Max's petition for naturalization in 1925 (I know this is the right Max), he lists a son, Soloman, but no daughter.  I could not find Max on the manifest. The 1930 and 1940 censuses (Brooklyn) lists a daughter, Bessie (b. 1924), but no son.  I found no census info for 1915 or 1920.

Re: Alternate locations for an Orthodox wedding/marriage ceremony in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania #usa

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybruc@...>
 

"married in the rabbi's office rather than in the main sanctuary (not sure if that's what the primary area of worship was called). Would there have been a precedent, or reason? "

My mother said she got married in a blue suit - I don't know where, but it wasn't a big wedding, and money wasn't the issue. The issue was that WW II was raging in Europe (and the US wasn't in it yet, but soon), and a big todo wasn't proper. 

Perhaps your grandparents married near or during a war?  Or Covid-19? Or Spanish flu?
