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.

Good luck in your search,

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

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

Looking for marriage records for my great grandparents, Leie Friedman married Daniel Martzinovsky/Marchinofsky from Lunna, Grodno, Russia. He arrived in the U.S. in 1909 and she followed with their children in 1911.

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)

Also, the last place of residence was transcribed as Tushalaby.  I

they may be a type of "slang", or whether there may be a more common

Re: My uncle's first wife #usa

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.

Re: Info on uncle's first wife #usa #general

peggyfreedman@...
 

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!

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!
