Barney Stein Ship Arrival #records

Susan&David
 

Adam:  Some names are nicknames, some are alternate spellings or bad
handwriting.  You can find the family on Ancestry.com aboard the SS
Pennsylvania in the Hamburg Departure Lists for 21 July 1901. The
spelling of the names on this list are slightly  different on some
cases.    The town is not much clearer, but begins with "P"  It is
indexed here as Puschalatz.

Girta (Gite/Gita)
Itrig (Itzig, short for Isaac/Yitzchak)
Leis  (Lea/Leah)
Schmere (Shmerel)
Bonze (Benza, short for Benzion)
Chatzkel (short for Yechetzkel)

He passed away in Chicago, in 1943.  I believe that I found a record for
him and members of his familiy at Ellis island, and a section of the
document has been attached.  The first names of the family members were
transcribed as follows:  Girta, Jtrig, Leis, Schmere, Bonze, Chatzkel. 
Also, the last place of residence was transcribed as Tushalaby.  I
attempted to search for Tushalaby and was unable to identify such a
location.  Also, some of the names sound unusual, and I am curious if
they may be a type of "slang", or whether there may be a more common
form for the names listed?

Actually, according to the 1930 census they got married either in 1928 or in 1929. Anna was 24, in Apr 1930, and the her age at first marriage was 23.

Have you considered that there might be more than one Jack HYMAN born the same year as your grandfather living in New Jersey?

At our last house (about 20 years ago) there were two Steven FREEDMANs living within a mile.  And once I was on an airplane with someone else from Atlanta named Peggy FREEDMAN.  We kept the flight attendants on their toes!  I would keep this on the "maybe" list until finding more information.

I would also consider other spellings of HYMAN - maybe HEYMAN - when looking for both your uncle and the mystery man.

Good luck!

I think the first letter of the town is P, not T and it is Pushelaty. Here is the town in JewishGen.

Putting up a tombstone for an ancestor in Lodz Jewish Cemetery #lodz #general

Natan Finkelstein
 

Greetings, I have recently uncovered through JewishGen the digital record of the location of the grave of my relative, who perished in the Lodz Ghetto, in the Lodz Jewish Cemetery. My family, from abroad, would like to arrange the putting up of tombstone for him to honor his memory. I have tried to contact the leadership of the cemetery through phone and email, to no avail. I tried contacting a member of the Jewish community there, but they did not understand the mapping well enough to locate the grave. I even tried contacting a local tombstone service there to no avail. Does anyone have any experience with this, understand the mapping of the graves there, or have any tips?
Thanks!

The program and her tree are corrupted once again. Is there anyone who knows how to contact Duff Wilson?
Are there any FTM experts who can offer assistance?

Please contact me.

IOBA Lodge group photo circa 1895; #usa #photographs

nkleitman@...
 

I've posted a photo, circa 1895, of an IOBA Lodge (Independent Order of B'rith Abraham, founded 1887 according to encyclopedia.com). No specific question - I'm just sharing this photo for anyone interested in IOBA lodges or groups like them.  
It is on ViewMate at the following address https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM93777

My great-grandfather was ID'd by someone (Joseph Salwen; originally Solowejczyk; immigrated in 1882); he lived in Manhattan at the time. This is a scan from our family's original copy, which I restored a bit.  I don't know which NYC lodge it is, but thought someone out there might collect such photos or know more about these lodges or of a repository that might like to have the photo. 
I've learned a lot from this group; thanks to you all!

My uncle's first wife #usa

Steve Pickoltz
 

In doing research on my uncle Jack Hyman, I found him listed in the 1930 census living in Jersey City, NJ, with a wife named "ANNA". She is news to me. The info on my uncle seems correct as far as birth and occupation. Based on the census info it looks like they were married in 1925.

I would like to find out who this ANNE is (maiden name),parents name, where they married, divorced, or death. I have tried to find all of the above with no luck. I am also looking for any info on my uncle prior to this 1930 census.

I know all about his second marriage to my aunt, when, and where it took place.

Info on uncle's first wife #usa #general

Steve Pickoltz
 

In doing research on my uncle Jack HYMAN, I found him listed in the 1930 census living in Jersey City, NJ at 177 Orient Ave.   However, it also list him as married to a wife named "ANNE".  This is news to me.  The other info listed for my uncle seems to be correct.  Base on this info, it looks like they were married in 1925.

I have looked up marriages, deaths and divorces with no luck.  For his second marriage to my aunt, I have all the required up to date info.

Could someone help me find ANYTHING on this ANNE?  Anything on my uncle prior to marriage #1, would be appreciated also.

Hi

I received two direct messages, one suggesting it was a poorly written version of Slutsk as "there is no location within 30 miles of Slutsk that starts with Rus* or resembles Ruszk.
And, the other was the possibility of Kletzk 

Any other thoughts?

Re: Family from Roman Romania #romania

prsnewark@...
 

My last name is Scharago. It is certainly similar to the name that you were referring to. It is my maiden name on my fathers side. I know his family came from Romania to New Jersey. My grandfather‘s name was Harry or HerschelAnd his wife’s name was Fanny
 
It would be very interesting if we were somehow related. Phyllis Scharago

Jewish Daily Forwerts #yiddish

Allen Koenigsberg
 

Hello,
 
  I am trying to get an improved copy of an old advertisement from the JDF, specifically from the April 22, 24, 26, 1902 issue (p. 7 or 8/ upper half page). At the moment, I am using the online version of this newspaper, so parts are hard to read.
 
 Is there some magic way to get a sharper image, or (one can dream), perhaps access to a hard-copy of any of those pages that can be xeroxed, or individually scanned, etc. The Ad was for the Standard Phonograph Co. which was a pioneer in making the first Yiddish recordings.
 
 TIA.
     
Best

MyHeritage Purchases Filae.com the French Genealogy Company #france #announcements

Jan Meisels Allen
 

  

 

MyHeritage has purchased the French genealogy firm, Filae.com. According to CompGen, there was a fierce bidding war with Geneanet but MyHeritage’s bid was substantially more.  The shareholder’s meeting was on May 21, 2021 and the sale is expected to be finalized by the end of this year.

 

Filae.com was originally launched under “genealogie.com” and then under “NotreFamille.com”.  The website NotreFamille,.com was also sold.

 

Filae.com offers most of France’s  civil status documents in indexed form as well as many other collections.  In April 2020 Filae.com founded a genetic testing company under the name "Origines" in Estonia, since genetic testing is banned in France. In the event of a sale to MyHeritage, Filae.com intends to maintain this activity with three employees in Paris and two in Estonia.

As reported previously, In February, MyHeritage itself was purchased by a San Francisco private equity firm, Francisco Partners.

 

Thank you to Jeanette Rosenberg, JGS Great Britain for sharing the information with us.
