Re: Seeking a publisher to print my family history #general

Theo Rafael
 

I self published several of my father's books including one related to our family's genealogy. It is quite technical but it can be done as DIY using Amazon's service (kindle direct publishing) or it's direct competition (Ingram spark https://www.ingramspark.com/).
I did all of the publishing stages myself starting from proofreading, selecting the page size, placing the photos and text in the pages, adding page number, indexing, designing the cover. Cost was zero for publishing itself, you just pay for each print copy at manufacturing cost (there's a calculator to estimate per copy cost https://kdp.amazon.com/en_US/help/topic/G201834340).
You can also upgrade and pay for some of these tasks to be done by their specialists.
You don't have to put the book for sale, you can simply use it as POD for yourself.

Good luck,
Theo Rafael

Thank you for this notification. I'm certainly interested in seeing the English summary of this. The question of how Jewish surnames arose is one of the central clues for tracing how we're all connected.

Simcha and Shmarya are not variants of the same name.
That said, one can easily misread Simcha as Schmarya -- see this image:




All it takes is for the stonecutter (or the reader) to have missed a bit at where the red arrow is pointing .  The first word is Simcha the second is Shmarya. Move the second character for the left a bit to the right, make it a bit too long, and Shmarya looks like Simcha.

Rose Edith (Ostroff) Vezeau #usa

Steve Pickoltz
 

For all of you, that answered my earlier post, thank you.  Sorry for the delay in getting back to all of you.
Many found the death notice for her sister, that listed her married name as Vezeau.  That is also how I found it.
From other info that was sent to me, a person by that name lived in LA with a George D. Vezeau.  A Rose Vezeau is listed as dying in Cottonwood, Arizona.
I don't know yet if this is my cousin.  To date, I have not been able to find a marriage record (I mentioned earlier, she may have been married more that once), nor any death record, Obit for her or this George D. Vezeau.  There are no family members alive to check on any of this.  It appears I am at a loss to solve this mystery.  
I am open to all suggestion.

Re: What happened to my great, great grandfather after he landed at Ellis Island? #canada #lithuania #usa

Michele Lock
 

I also have an older man in my family tree, who came to the US in 1910, and then seemed to disappear. He said he was coming to see his daughter in Trenton NJ on the ship manifest, but he never showed up on a census list, or in a death index, or in any cemetery. It turns out that he went back to the old country, to Lida (now in Belarus), where I found him on a tax list in 1912. This man also left a wife behind in Lida, though the grand majority of the couple's children were in the US by then.

You don't say how old your Nissen was, but I take it he was 50+ years old. Perhaps he and/or his wife felt it was too much effort to start a new life over again in Montreal, and so it is a real possibility that he did go back. There aren't any outbound ship passenger lists from the US to Europe that you can check, nor are there any inbound ship lists for arrivals in Bremen or Hamburg (so unfortunate). You could try and check the New York City death records and indexes (via SteveMorse.org), to see if your Nissin shows up there. 

Hope this helps.

Surely you remember the name which was used to call you up for your Bar Mitzva?  Nearly as important, remember that that many Rabbis are female, mine is and has been for nearly 30 years; I know many others.   Just ask your Rabbi without any he, him nor he or she, just your Rabbi.

Subject: Re: [JewishGen.org] My Hebrew Name #names
 
Here are some possibilities:
1. If your parents belonged to a synagogue, it may have records--not necessarily a record of your birth, but even membership records may list names of children.
2. If you are named after a deceased relative, try to locate that person's tombstone.
3. If you have living older relatives, perhaps they remember.
PLEASE NOTE: Even if you find an answer through this or other methods, if you are seeking this information for a religious purpose such as getting married or divorced, you must inform the officiating rabbi that you are not certain what your name is and tell him how you came to the conclusion that you came to. He will then decide whether to rely on your research for the religious purpose.
Good luck,

Twins Samuel David and Marcus LEWIN #israel #poland

Carol Jean Weightman
 

I am looking for information on family members Samuel David Lewin and Markus Lewin. I have gathered what is available on Ancestry but wonder if Samuel David and Markus were known to list members.

I am also looking for descendants of Samuel David and Markus.

Twins Samuel David and Markus were born on 11 October 1911 in Sambor.

They were twin sons of Rabbi Aron Lewin of Sambor, Rohatyn and Rzeszow. Rabbi Aron was also a deputy of the Polish Sejm.

Samuel David and Markus entered the United States from Shanghai on 20 October 1941. The occupation for both was given at that time as Rabbi.

Samuel David died in Jerusalem on 1 March 1992. Before that, he may have become a Canadian national. It would be good to know when Samuel David came to Jerusalem and if he lived there with family members.

Markus may have died in New York in 1991. He may have become a US national.

It would be good to know if Samuel David and Markus had children.

I would welcome any information.

Best wishes
Carol Jean Weightman


Searching for MALKIN family members who came to U.S. 1900 or before #belarus #usa

Beth Galleto
 

 

I am trying to find a family that I am told immigrated to the U.S. from Khotimsk, Belarus, in 1892 or 1900. The family may have had five children. I do not know any given names or ages.

 

The husband or wife was a sibling of Haim (also called Yefim) MALKIN (1900-1981). Haim was the son of Yankel or Yakovlev MALKIN and his wife Sara. Yankel married twice and had 14 children. I am told some of Haim’s brothers were Moisei, Mishaizhe, Michel and his sisters were Rosa, Rahil and Maryasha. I don’t know the other names.

 

I am also told that at some time the brother or sister managed to return to the Soviet Union for a visit. He/she was a doctor, a gynecologist.

 

I realize that if we are talking about a brother, the surname is probably still MALKIN, but if it was a sister, the name could be anything.

 

I am in contact with descendants of Haim Malkin’s family in Israel and Russia. I realize we do not have much information to go on, but maybe this will ring a bell for someone. It would be wonderful to be able to reconnect them with their family who came to America so long ago.

 

Thanks for any help you can provide.
