The correct Hebrew spelling is ריבה, pronounced  Rivvah.

It means "Lass", and is as old fashioned in Hebrew as the word "lass" in English.

Never, in my "Native Hebrew speaking" life have I hear of it as a riverside or beach...

You may want to hear the Hebrew song
 "מי יש לי ריבה כזאת" or another version (with text and alternativse phrases here

The two other spellings you've run into must have come from Yiddish but this is a case of a real Hebrew word.

Re: town in Poland #poland

These names are quite distorted.
My guess is that "Tacheshef not far from Sandemish" could be Staszów, not far from Sandomierz. If so, you'll find plenty of records to search.

MNJGS Virtual Meeting Nov 7: Deborah Long presenting "Out of the Whirlwind: Finding Your Family Lost in the Holocaust" #announcements #holocaust #education

casson123@...
 

On November 7, 2021, from 1:00 PM-3:00 PM (CDT) the Minnesota Jewish Genealogical Society will host Deborah Long, presenting: 

 

 Out of the Whirlwind: Finding Your Family Lost in the Holocaust

 

There are numerous resources available to trace the Holocaust history of our families, identifying those who did not survive the Holocaust and those who did. This session is a comprehensive look at the many resources that can assist you in your search. As the daughter of two Holocaust survivors, Deborah Long reviews the best (as well as some of the obscure) resources and methods for determining the fate of those involved in the Holocaust, including survivors and victims. Using examples from her own research, Deborah will demonstrate the documents and artifacts she discovered to reconstruct her family tree and even find living survivors and their descendants.

 

Speaker Bio:

 

Deborah Long grew up in Skokie, Illinois and has been researching her family history and searching for  family members for more than 60 years. Deborah is a professional educator and speaker, often presenting to licensed professionals through continuing education programs. She has written more than 20 books, including a memoir about growing up as a child of survivors titled “First Hitler, Then Your Father, and Now You.” She currently lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and Evanston, Illinois, and is the founder and first president of Triangle JGS of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill.

Linda W.
 

I have an old interview with a relative who says she is from Tacheshef not far from Sandemish from the period 1893-1907. she also mentions Tzemceh    I cannot seem to find these towns in the Town finder.  Do you recognize these towns?    Which archive in Poland would have this towns records? 
Many thanks

From Romania to Omaha -- Who helped them leave? Who helped them when they arrived? #general

J95Frank@...
 

My great grandfather, his wife, and six children left Romania, boarded a ship in Bremen, Germany, and sailed to New York en route to Omaha, Nebraska. Four years later his brother, along with a wife and five children, did much the same. These had to be extraordinarily difficult moves, particularly if we assume that these folks were far from wealthy.

What organization(s) helped facilitate these immigrations and what, if any, documentation (letters of introduction, etc.) might be available?

Thank you.

Re: Searching for additional information on Moses Wright #romania #bessarabia

J95Frank@...
 

So, thanks in large part to the help I've received here, there's been some breakthroughs.

First, the "Wright" surname was originally Reit. As you can see at https://forebears.io/surnames/reit, outside of the US it is found primarily in Germany and Romania.
 
Second, Mosche Reit (aka Moses Wright) and his wife, Marian, sailed from Bremen to New York on the Wittenkind, arriving on 8 April 1895. They would settle for a while in Omaha, Nebraska, and then, some time between 1900 and 1910 census, travel to Los Angeles County. Complicating the search was the fact that the name was listed as "Hosche Beit" rather than "Mosche Reit." Such is life!
 
Third, Mosche Reit (aka Moses Wright) did, indeed, have a brother named Getzel (George). Getzel and Bessy traveled from Hamburg to New York on the Italia, arriving 28 December 1899 with Omaha, Nebraska, as their final destination.
 
Finally, FindAGrave provides and inscription for George Wright which reads:  "Elyakim Getzel ben reb Yisrael David Wright - 13 Tamuz 5685." So we know that the father of Mosche and Getzel was Yisrael David Reit.

You folks have been fantastic. Thank you again.

Hi Jeff,
Sometimes a witness is a friend, relative living nearby, or just someone in the registration office. 
I have found in my research that not all witnesses are related to the family.

Re: How to find record that states "Lewin 'Birth Records'" see enclosed pdf #general #unitedkingdom

ruth.shrigley@...
 

Dear Ron,
I was very interested to see that you are researching the Levins in London in the early1800s.  Was your Meyer Levin the son of Leib Levin (b 1783 Poland or Prussia - d 1863 London), JewishGen ID 7649.

https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/c1851.php?rec=C1851c_0006458?

 

If so, I wonder whether he could be a cousin of my ancestors, the brothers/half-brothers Zadick (1786-1848), William Charles (1779-1860) and James Henry Levin (1780-1857).  Their father was Henry Levin (no information).  Both William Charles and James Henry were born in East Prussia (James Henry in Koenigsberg).  The three brothers arrived in London around 1800 and there are documents listing them as merchants based in Great Prescott Street in 1800-1802 - Zadick was at no 46.  Meyer Levin took out an insurance policy at 68, Great Prescott Street in the 1810s.  Is this just a coincidence?

Thank you Peggy. I was not aware of that option on Google maps! I think this will be very helpful since most of my ancestors walked out of the village. No cars in 1900!

Re: Austria Hungary map, plotting family movement #general

peggyfreedman@...
 

Hi Kathy,
I think other people have given you links to prettier maps.  But if your question is about tracking movements, I have found Google Maps to be very effective.  Sometimes in my family from Austria Hungary I have had to find the Slovakian name of the town (or used the name in the current language of the place) to find the town. But then I can get directions from one place to another, and the roads will show on a map that I can snip as Maryellen described.

In one case, when I changed the directions to "Walking Directions" the route completely changed.  Apparently there are still paths thru mountains where cars can not go!
