Maternal great grandmother, Shirlee Grobstein, from Bobriusk #belarus

nnsmith@...
 

Hi, 
I recently found out that my maternal family was originally from Bobriusk. Searching for Harry Kohn (great grandfather) (Cohen, Kohen, Cohn), Lena (my grandmother), George (great uncle) and Shirlee Grobstein (great grandmother). Lena was born approximately 1900, George - approximately 1904. 

what I’ve been told, by Lena, that Shirlee was killed in the pogroms. I’ve found information that Harry came to the states circa 1906…Lena and George circa 1909-1910, and lived in upstate New York, before moving to Cleveland, Oh.
My questions are…was Kohn a popular name during that time period? Is there any way to find out if there’s a grave for Shirlee? What port would they have left from?
Thank you in advance! This has been a major brick wall for me!

Nancy Smith - searching KOHN (various spellings) and GROBSTEIN.

Some other ways to determine how the couple might of met is to check the addresses on their marriage certificate, to see how close they lived to each other. Also, check to see what occupations they both list from various records, which might give a clue as to how they crossed paths. Then again, they may simply have met on the subway.

You will find her among the photos in Jewishdata.com.  Many DE VRIES are buried in the New York area, including a Rachel (b. 1839, d. 1921).

Some public libraries have licenses to this website or possibly you local Jewish genealogy society.

Re: Edward McMahan's cause of death #usa

The Facebook group New York City Genealogy has the most up-do-date information on how to obtain the original images of NYC vital records that are extracted on FamilySearch.org. In their Announcements section, you'll find how to go about this.

Using SteveMorse.org to search for records for the couple, using the 'Starts with' function for names - 

It is the marriage certificate that may have more information about the couple, Edward McMahon and Rosalyn Bernstein

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:24WZ-7GF

 

Name                                                   Edward Mcmahon

Sex                                                         Male

Age                                                        37

Birth Year (Estimated)                    1890

Birthplace                                            New York City

Marital Status                                    Widowed

Race                                                      White

Father's Name                                   Bernard

Mother's Name                                 Anna Mckenna

Spouse's Name                                 Rosalyn Bernstein

Spouse's Sex                                      Female

Spouse's Age                                     22

Spouse's Birth Year (Estimated) 1905

Spouse's Birthplace                         New York City

Spouse's Marital Status                 Single

Spouse's Race                                    White

Spouse's Father's Name                 David

Spouse's Mother's Name              Rebecca Ash

Marriage Date                                   20 Jul 1927

Marriage Place  Manhattan, New York, New York, United States

Marriage Place (Original)              Manhattan, New York

The death certificate record on Familysearch has his name as Edward McMann: 
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2W1T-1BX?from=lynx1UIV8&treeref=MB44-9VY

That will have the cause of death, and where he is buried, and address at time of death.

On FamilySearch, if you look in the upper right corner of the above pages, you will see that there is a family tree for Edward B. McMahon, with links to other FamilySearch records. And as might be expected with a name like McMahon, this person was not Jewish. His NYC birth record has both of his parents born in Ireland:
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2W3C-QCS?from=lynx1UIV8&treeref=MB44-9VY

You never know, but the persons who have contributed to this tree on FamilySearch may know something about the couple and how they met, so you could try contacting them. I suspect that the couple is also in trees on Ancestry, and contacting the owners of those trees could be fruitful. [My track record contacting owners of trees is about 90% no response, but the 10% who do respond are usually the ones who have facts about individuals].

Re: Can Nazi forced labour records be found of Bohemia (Böhmen-Kamnitz) ? #holocaust

l.a.m.buisman@...
 

There are records of survivors in the Arolson Archives too. Recently I found proof there of someones "onderduik". Also a woman who, while interned in Westerbork,  managed to "prove" she wasn't jewish enough, she was released. Her non-jewish husband in Kamp Vught. Her sisters though (at least one of them also a mixed marriage, all ended up in Sobibor or Auschwitz. I suppose they didn't find a clever lawyer ...


Several men named Adrianus Peeters in the Arolson Archives, but wrong d.o.b. Entries without d.o.b. though. Also, they may have lists that haven't been transcribed yet?
I see on Sara's "archiefkaart" in the Amsterdam Stadsarchief that they married 19 sept 1945 in Amsterdam.

I don't know if you have this: Adrianus' first wife must have given up hope ever seeing him again, and/or she found someone else.

Ned. Staatscourant 28-6-1945:


And Sara? Because of her name I had wrongly assumed she was Jewish.

Ned. Staatscourant 23-8-1941


In 1941 she lived in Amsterdam for a short while after her divorce, but moved back to Rotterdam soon after. Was registered in Amsterdam again in dec 1945, with husband Peeters. Two sons with her first husband, one of them died in 1950 in Rotterdam, age 18.

New "Search by Face" App #announcements #holocaust #photographs

Daniel Patt
 

Shalom all,

numberstonames.org lets families of Holocaust survivors and victims "search by face" for loved ones in Holocaust museum photo archives. This began as an effort to find photos of my own grandparents in various museum collections (~70% of individuals in museum photos are unidentified). More than 171,000 faces have been extracted from nearly 34,000 photographs so far. Hope this is a helpful resource, and I'd love to hear about any connections / photo discoveries this helps facilitate. 

Best,
Daniel Patt

Just a note regarding the photo.  This is a typical passport photo with the person's signature and the official seal.  Cannot actually read the lettering though.

Re: Headstone translations - Narefka Gravestones #translation

David Ziants
 

I have already looked at the first 5 or so. (Did not succeed at #1.)

Am primarily now concentrating on placing links to any of the two other resources that Joy Kestenbaum mentioned now. The quality of some of the photos is better on https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Narewka/NarewkaCemetery/index.html that was mentioned. There could be photos, though, that are not elsewhere.

What is still missing across the board, with respect to these gravestones, is a Hebrew transcription - and the question would be which site would host this.

David


My ancestors ZIANTS, ZENETZKI (SCHLOSBERG ?,BLOOM ?), and FRYDMAN, as well as SANICKI (kohanim) family and Sarah ZIANCHICK (family in Pennsylvania, USA),  all had a presence in Narewka during the latter part of the 19th century and beginning of 20th century. The two family names in parentheses are branches of ZENETSKI, but is not sure whether anyone from these branches lived in Narewka. It is unsure whether Sarah ZIANCHICK is my ZIANTS family or not. SANICKI in Chelsea MA, USA have on their memorials that they are kohanim (paternal descendants of Aaron the Priest), but my ancestors don't have this tradition. Someone suggested the possibility that a child of a family took the family name of the mother (wanting to avoid the Czar's army and that sort of thing).

The Routes to Roots Foundation is offering Weekly Featured Collections from its website at www.rtrfoundation.org.

 

This week, we are highlighting the following from the MAP COLLECTIONS

 

1.    This collection consists of individual street maps of towns and cities within the current borders of Ukraine. Many of the town maps consist of 1-4 separate maps. The maps are in color and about half of them include a "legend" – primarily an alphabetical listing of street names. The maps are in the Russian language (Cyrillic alphabet). This map collection includes more than 40 localities in present-day Ukraine.

2.    This collection consists of individual street maps of towns and cities within the current borders of Belarus. Some of the town maps consist of 1-6 separate maps. The maps are in color and most of them include a "legend" – primarily an alphabetical listing of street names. The maps are in the Russian language (Cyrillic alphabet). This map collection includes 25 localities in present-day Belarus.

Re: Bialystok census?? #poland

Mark Halpern
 

Hi Robin:

The fragments of the 1897 All Russian Census for Grodno Gubernia has been indexed. These indices of these fragments for towns now in Poland, including Bialystok and about 12 other towns, are part of the JRI-Poland online database. For a list of surnames included for these 13 towns, see  https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/BialyGen/1897Census.htm. Please remember that these surnames cover 13 towns in the Bialystok area including Bialystok and there is not a complete census for Bialystok.

Edward McMahan's cause of death #usa

Steve Pickoltz
 

Edward McMahon was born about 1888 I think in NYC.  He died Dec. 9, 1927 in Manhattan, NY, cert # 27504.  He married my aunt Rose Bernstein on July 20, 1927 in Manhattan, NY.  It appears he was not Jewish, but my aunt was.  Since his marriage to my aunt was short (about 4 months), I know nothing about him or his cause of death, where buried or HOW THEY MET.  It was never spoken of in my family.
 
Is there anyone who could fill in some of this missing information.  I am the only living relative of my aunt, and the above is ALL I know about their relationship.
