Hello,
See the method for doing this with NY Southern District Court naturalizations at:
http://www.jgsob.org/projects/USNYSD.pdf

then use that methodology for Eastern District Court records, with references at the bottom of this page:

Help deciphering names on ship manifest #names #general #usa

lswikoff@...
 

I have been unable to decipher the name on the manifest listing for my great-grandfather, Simon (later Sam) Sobel, of the person he was joining (and who had paid his passage).  See below for the manifest page link to the document on Ancestry. On line 4, it lists "cousin" followed by a name, which Ancestry recorded as W Walter, although I'd be surprised if that's correct.  I'm reasonably certain the address is 25 Harrison Street, although I didn't find anything for this cousin when I looked at the1910 census record for that address (my great-grandfather arrived in 1908).  I don't know anything about my great-grandfather's relatives in the U.S., except for my grandmother and her brother, so I'd be grateful for any help figuring out this name..

 Ancestry.com - New York, U.S., Arriving Passenger and Crew Lists (including Castle Garden and Ellis Island), 1820-1957  (ctrl + click to follow link)

The above was my great-grandfather's second arrival at Ellis Island. He'd also come in 1905,  At that time, he listed his sister, whose name I read as Freide Breindl, who lived in Brooklyn as the person he was joining, Unfortunately her address is listed as a PO Box, and I have been unable to trace her with either that surname or with the surname Sobel.  Any suggestions that might lead to information about her would be most welcome.  See line 29 at

I'd appreciate a translation from Romanian to English (or as much as possible, given the quality of the photo) of this inscription on the reverse side of my great-uncle's gravestone. I tried online translation of the words I could make out but that didn’t work because most of them had multiple meanings, I assume based on context.

 

The photo is posted on ViewMate at https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM93223.  Please respond using the Viewmate form.  I realize the lighting makes some of the words/letters hard to see, but I'll be happy with anything that can be determined.

Adam,

I think I've found the family on the 1915 NY State Census.  Names / ages match up, as does year of arrival, and the fact that two of the children appear to be twins.
1915 census - 242 Broome St., Manhattan
None are naturalized.
Abram Stein, b. Russia, age 54
Gertie Stein, b. Russia, age 55
Sam & Bennie, age 21  (Schmere & Benze from manifest)
Oscar, age 19  (Chatzkel from manifest)

The manifest shows that their daughter, Leie Stein, (b. about 1892) naturalized in 1942.  Leie may have been married by 1915.

Good luck in your search,

Sherri Bobish

Allen,

This article from 2017 seems to indicate that you can get a page copied from a hardcopy of the newspaper, if you have specific enough info on date / name, etc.  It includes contact info which hopefully is still current.

Re: Help deciphering a town name on passenger Manifest #records #belarus

Emily Garber
 

David:

A link to the entire record (including the first page of this passenger manifest and all the other pages of this ship's manifest) would be useful to compare how letters were formed by this clerk. I could guess that the community might be Klezk (aka Kletzk, which was in Slutsk uyezd). But regardless if one guesses or knows for certain what was written, it is best to have additional sources for confirmation. If you have not yet searched out every record for this immigrant and their family, friends, associates and neighbors in USA records, by all means do so. One record is never enough (especially a record in which information is ambiguous).

Family from Roman Romania #romania

Jeffrey Knisbacher
 

My wife had an aunt from Bucharest Romania (the family was originally from the Sighet area of Hungary) Viorica STAUBER, who married Henry SCHRAGER, a dentist. Henry and Viorica moved to Melbourne, Australia in 1960 and both died in the 1980s and are buried there. They were childless. We don't know where Henry was from originally but it occurs to me that SCHRAGER may be the basis for SCHRAGO, SARAGA, etc.,  or the other way around. Checking on Google, I find that Roman, Romania (pronounced as if spelled Romahn), had a Talmud Torah from 1817. Would like to compare notes.   I should also note that my version of the digest, as it appears in Thunderbird, does not give any indication of how or where to reply.

Re: Isaac Luria genealogy #general

Adam Cherson
 

From what I can see in the data I have gathered from various sources, Isaac Luria, the Ari WAS NOT the son of Solomon Luria, the Maharshal  I can suggest a research strategy that may shed some light on your quest, at least so far as your family's connection to the Maharshal.

According to some work done by various researchers (https://www.academia.edu/38296562/Y-DNA_Research_Studies_of_Rabbinical_Lineages_and_Their_Importance_to_Jewish_Genealogy) the Marshal's ydna signature is E-FT81835 (a sub-branch of E-M35). If you have the luxury of being able to obtain, through modern cousins, a ydna signature for the father of Zlata Hinda (Luria) Rotkovitz, then you could see if the two ydna signatures match.

Whether or not the Vilna Lurias are related to the Jerusalem Lurias is going to be difficult to prove since I do not see in my data any known, modern descendants of the Jerusalem family.

New Kehillalinks for Talsi and Valdemarpils in the works #latvia #courland

bgephart@...
 

Years ago, I created ShtetlLink websites for Valdemarpils and Talsi, Latvia, which I have long neglected.  I’m now working to revive and update the sites and would love to involve other descendants from these towns.  Do you have photos, documents, or other resources to share?   Anything that would interest other descendants would be welcome.  There will be a blog feature if you’re interested in contributing your own features connected to Talsi and Valdemarpils.   For that I’m imagining family stories, travel accounts, and perhaps short history pieces.  And I’m happy to post queries and unidentified photos.  It’s very much a work in progress at this point, with a plan to go live sometime this summer.   

 

Please contact me at Betsy@... if you’d like to contribute. 

 

Sincerely,

Betsy Thal Gephart

 

 


Re: Help deciphering family names and town name on passenger manifest #records #usa

Rodney Eisfelder
 

Adam,
I read the town name as Pushalaty. Jewishgen's Communities database suggests Pušalotas, Lithuania and the Jewishgen family finder has over 130 entries for that town, including 2 for the surname "Stein".
I read the first two names as Guta and Itzig. Except for Bonze, all the names seem fairly standard.
Guta is one a family of "good" names. The modern hebrew equivalent would be Tova.
Itzig is a variant of Isaac (certainly common in 19th century Germany, I don't know about early 20th century Lithuania).
Leis is probably a variant of Leah.
Schmere is a variant of Shmerel, or more formally Shmariyahu.
Chatzkel is an alternative spelling of Chaskiel.

I hope this helps,
Rodney Eisfelder

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)

I have been trying to find information about a relative Barney Stein. 
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?
