Re: Searching for PUSKIN/PUSKEN/PUSHKIN in 1925 Canton, Ohio #usa

Have you checked on Jewishgen.org
Under their JOWBR database.  It is free but you have to register, get a number and use a password.

The other site is FindAGrave which could give you an obituary and names of descendants.

Hope this helps.

Can anyone help me or make suggestions?

Or the “rabbi” who ferried goods on a barge might have studied to be, and been ordained as a rabbi but couldn’t (or didn’t want to) make a living as a rabbi.   Ordained rabbis today sometimes work as accountants, lawyers, etc.

Tell them that you haven't found documentary evidence and the difficulties in finding that evidence.
Sharing what you have found would go a long way, I think.

I often explain that many stories aren't supported by the math, as your high school administrator example proves.
Other times, it is because our family name is difficult to trace or I don't have an accurate version of the name they used before they came to the U.S.
Or I joke that that a story is hearsay, which which is inadmissible, your honor.

I have one of those "he was a rabbi" stories in my tree. But the evidence supports that he owned a barge and ferried goods across the Dneiper River.
He may have had aspirations to scholarship, or studied in his spare time.
Or it could have been his daughter embellishing because she wanted to make her family sound more important than it was.
My goal as a genealogist is to begin with hearsay; prove what I can, continue to search for what I can't.
The lack of documentary evidence from "the old country" for much of my family is frustrating. I can only hope that as more records are translated, something will pop up.

The official name is now the Port of New York and New Jersey.  I'm not sure when it changed.  Probably when the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey was established in 1921.

The "ship" would not have gone through Ellis Island.  The third class (steerage) passengers would have.  But the transatlantic ships themselves docked elsewhere, and the third class (steerage) passengers were brought to Ellis Island on ferries.

Re: Hamburg ship lists #unitedkingdom #records #lithuania

Marion Werle
 

This is from the database description for the "Hamburg Passenger Lists, 1850-1934" on Ancestry.com:

""Direct passengers" were those who arrived at their final destination upon the same ship that they were registered on when they departed Hamburg. These passengers may have had stopovers in other ports on their way to their final destination, but they remained on the same ship. "Indirect passengers" were those who were registered on one ship in Hamburg, but transferred to another ship before reaching their final destination."

In the case of indirect passengers, the destination will show as another port, possibly British or Scottish. I have, in fact, found one relative where the destination shows as Leith (Glasgow), and he did, in fact, transfer to a U.S. ship called the Nevada. This was difficult to trace, because his name was so badly butchered, but if you know when the ship left Hamburg (or arrived in the UK), you should be able to search for the passenger on ships arriving in the U.S. a couple of weeks later. In the case of my relative with the butchered name, I looked for somebody else (whose name was easier to spell)  on the ship that left Hamburg , and searched for her on Ancestry on ships arriving within the correct timeframe. I then found my relative under another butchered spelling. It wasn't easy, but it was doable.

Good luck!

Relatives want to know - where are the coveted records? #general #lithuania #records

Michele Lock
 

I’m looking for advice on how to handle some delicate situations that I’ve come across while researching into my various family branches, both on US sites and on Jewishgen. I’ve enjoyed sharing everything that I’ve found with family, have reconnected with distant relatives, have been on Zoom calls with those relatives, and have generally enjoyed the whole process.

However, with my relatives seeing the plethora of records that I’ve uncovered, a few have asked me why I haven’t located certain things. For instance: Have I discovered yet how we are descended from one or another of the famous Kalonymus rabbis? Or: Have I found any records of our great great grandfather Aaron Lock (Lak) of Zagare, Lithuania, because someone once met someone who remembers he was an administrator in a Jewish high school there.

I don’t know what to answer people when asked these questions. The records I’ve found firmly show our extended families were simple working class Litvak Jews from northern Lithuania, with no connections to any rabbinical dynasty. As for Aaron Lock/Lak, I found an 1892 tax record listing him as a poor cabman in Zagare. Based on an 1834 revision list, he was born in 1821, far too early to have been a high school administrator in the early 1900s.

So, I’m interested in how others have handled such situations when they’ve come up.

All the lists are on the website of the Israel State Archives. You can down load each year as a pdf file and go through then. But you have to search in Hebrew and the lists are in Hebrew.

Re: Looking for descendents of the brothers Samuel and Israel Altman of Woodbine, NJ #names #usa

Michele Lock
 

My experience trying to figure out the relationship between puzzling DNA matches for me from AncestryDNA is that there is likely an unknown woman who married into my family or into the match's families. Such a woman would not have passed on her original surname, but she did pass on her DNA.

In your case, the unknown woman could be a sister or aunt of Samuel and Israel Altman, who married into your Potashnick or Dimenstein families. Likewise, a sister or aunt of either of your Potashnick/Dimenstein grandparents may have married into the Altman family. 

One way to figure this out is to continue to build out your family tree, and also the family trees of the Altman brothers, and look for common surnames. The marriages may have taken place here in the US or possibly back in the old country, if the Altman and Potashnick/Dimenstein families come from the same locality.

If the marriage or a death of a person took place before 1930 in New Jersey, then the NJ State Archives will have those records, available for $10 each. They are taking about 2-3 months to respond to record requests, but they do respond.
