Re: MORITZ-LINDENHEIM tree #germany

mblas@...
 

Hi Miriam,
I notice that you have listed Kronheim as a surname of interest.
My great grandmother was Sophie Kronheim (1853-1927) and was born in Schlitt, Germany. She married Julius Leiser Lasnitzki who came from Guttstadt, Poland. I believe that Sophie (sibling/cousin?) would also have been related to Johanna Kronheim who came from Konigsberg. Johanna married Jakob Simonsohn and together they had 3 sons; Max (1873); Selmar about 1875 and Moritz born 14 March 1882 in Schönwalde, Barnim, Brandenburg, Germany and died 21 April 1921 in Schönwalde, Barnim, Brandenburg, Germany. I am looking for any information that may be out there with regard to my great grandparents and their extended families.
Thanks in anticipation,
Milton Lasnitzki

I have consulted “A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames from the Russian Empire” by Alexander Beider but did not find it very helpful.
Beider gives two etymologies and cites several locations where the name appears in records -- in what sense was this not helpful?

Bob Roudman -

Regarding red hair and the Rudman name, it’s important to remember that red hair is a recessive gene. It would come out unless both parents had a recessive red hair gene. These things are important to remember when using appearance as a comparison.

Re: Etymology of the Rudman surname #names

I had a similar quest with the name ROTKOVITZ / RODKOVITZ/ RUDKOVITZ. I was thinking that the name meant "son of the redhead". But, Dr. Beider said that it more likely meant "son of Roda".  Sure enough, after years of digging, we found that there were Revision List & Tax List records from 1795 & 1808 that showed that the family matriarch was named Rode.

Alexander Beider does it again!

He was homosexual and never married so actually had no descendants. The family tree is of his relatives not descendants.

Re: SAIONZ family in Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA #poland #russia #usa

The ship list you found is from 1909, not 1940. It says that Sore is going to her brother Simche Zajaczyj, who lived at 4022 Germantown Avenue in Philadelphia. Since that time, the Jewish community of Philadelphia has moved away from that neighborhood, to the Northeastern part of the city, to the Western suburbs (where Havertown is) and also to the Northern suburbs, and parts of Southern New Jersey (mainly near Cherry Hill). The descendants of Sarah and her brother Simche could be all over the greater Philadelphia region, and also live in other parts of the US.

I did use SteveMorse.org to check out who was living at 4022 Germantown Avenue in the 1910 US census, and found a Simon Zayon living there, with his wife Mary and two children. The sister Sore wasn’t living with them. (The name Zayon was mis-indexed by Ancestry as ‘Zagon’).


 The listings that you found for the Saontz family of Havertown – the Memorial Plaque listings are not complete, and do not include all synagogues in the Philadelphia region.

 

I suggest you research more about Simon Zayon and his family in Philadelphia, who say they came to the US in 1906.

Hungarian Cultural Studies journal #hungary

erikagottfried53@...
 

I'd like to bring to the attention of those researching Hungarian Jewish family histories and the history of Hungarian Jews the following very useful publication:

Hungarian Cultural Studies, e-Journal of the American Hungarian Educators Association
http://ahea.pitt.edu/ojs/index.php/ahea/index )

HCS began publishing in 2008. Articles are in English and it is a peer-reviewed, open-access scholarly journal that is published annually.  Access is free and the articles are searchable.  Although the main focus isn't Hungarian Jews (many interesting articles on other Hungarian-related topics), but it does contain many interesting and relevant articles.

Family oral history has it that my great great Grandfather Mair Lieb Rudman, possibly from Zaslav, or Bilogorodka, or Sedilka in Ukraine,  had Red hair. Interesting since no one else in the family has red hair?

Suggest you look at the Red Cross International Tracing Service (ITS) online database at the Arolsen Archives. The now opened archives hold newly digitized records. How's your Dutch? It was a bit tricky to figure out what I was looking at and to identify the document's source. It helps to know a bit of the history of what was happening to Dutch Jews after the Nazis came in. I have to admit, that until I started digging into my European cousins' history, I had never heard of these transit camps and only knew of the most notorious concentration camps (konzentration lager (KZ)).

Leaders in the Jewish Community formed an organization called the JudenRat (Jewish Council). It became their responsibility to register every Jew living within their jurisdiction, The information, a kind of standardized census, was recorded on pre-printed cards. However, it looks like the recorder would run out of pre-printed forms and then used a typewriter to write the field names and answers on blank card stock. It's organized alphabetically by surname. It's worth looking through the adjacent scanned images.

Cards were marked with inkstamps, abbreviations, dates, and notes. I didn't find a guide to what these marks mean. Some may refer to camps where the person was sent. B.B., for example may have meant the Bergen Belsen KZ. I found that jotted on Arthur Weinthal's card. He perished there of typhoid a few months before the British liberated the camp.

Re: Leonardo DaVinci's Family Tree Traced Through His DNA #dna

Leonardo DaVinci was a homosexual who had no children. This was an exploration of the male DaVinci family ancestors and their descendants based on Y chromosome analysis. It is remarkable that they could roll the line back to an individual born in 1331. However, I can't but feel it is gruesome that graves were opened up to take body samples. This is euphemistically described as "ancient chromosomes found from burial grounds of the da Vinci family." The scientific value is dubious. I am related to Albert Einstein who also was a celebrated genius. Do I have to worry that some day my grave will be disturbed to "potentially answer several questions of the scientific community and enthusiasts"? We may have similar hair texture, but genius is not an inherited trait.

Re: 1809 Baden Name Adoption Lists #germany #names

Reuven Mohr
 

I totally agree with Janice.
But it is a major problem to find those originals.
It would be interesting to hear from Ralph, where in this case he found those originals?
Often with Rosenthals transcriptions I have no idea where he found his originals, and where to look for them today. For Baden a lot of this material is in the Karlsruhe Landesarchiv. But for the Palatinate I never saw such a place. The Speyer archives don't seem to have a lot of relevant Jewish material.

Seeking Records for JOEL M.JACOBS, AND FATHER MORRIS JACOBS, LONDON ENGLAND, 1885-1903; family may have come from Warsaw Poland to England between 1875-1885 #unitedkingdom

jjacobsfeingold@...
 

My grandfather, JOEL Maurice Jacobs, who died in 1970, told me and other family members he was born 5 Nov 1885 in London, England, refusing to give any more information, other than referring to his sister, ROSE who married Israel Kutner(Kotner), living with them after his immigrated to US in 1903.   I have been searching for his birth record and other records of his time in England for years without success. Nor can I find his father,  MORRIS (MOSHE), in any record, other than Rose's marriage document.  All the Morris Jacobs records I have searched in UK, are other Morris Jacobs families.  Joel left UK, via Southhampton  30 May 1903, arrived New York 7 Jun 1903, joined sister Rose, and her husband Israel Kutner (Kotner)in St.Louis.MO. I have fully documented Joel's life in the U.S.  Rose married Israel in London, 1896, a copy of her marriage certificate is attached.  This shows that both Jacobs and Kutner families lived at 103 Rothchild Buildings, Bldg D, East London, yet I have not been able to document this with other evidence.  Rose's marriage certificate indicates she was from Warsaw and Israel was from Plotsk.  Several official U.S. records show Joel's mother's name as HANNAH GUNT(H)ER.  I have not be able to find her in any records in UK ,or anywhere,  which tie a Hannah Gunter to  a Joel or Morris Jacobs.  I do not know the original Polish surname, only Jacobs in England. I have done a thorough search of the Kutner family lineage, including contacting descendants of Israel's brothers. They have even less information than I.  Unfortunately, Rose & Israel had no children to trace. My father and his brother are deceased, as well as my only male first cousin, who also did not have children.  So YDNA seems to not be an option.  Any assistance you can give me is greatly appreciated.     JULIE JACOBS FEINGOLD, USA
