Re: Town in Russia - Markus Family #translation

Perhaps it is Wekcna, which seems to be Vieksniai, in Lithuania, not far from Telsiai (which could be "Telsi" in Morris' entry, above), according to the Jewish Communities Database.

For some reason my computer won't copy and paste the URL.  Google "Jews in Ethiopia in the 1700's'and you will find your answer.

Viewmate Translation needed - Russian birth record? #translation

Lee Jaffe
 

I've posted a vital record in Russian for which I need a translation. It is on ViewMate at the following address ...
https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM96829

I found this document attached to the 1830 birth entry for Nyszla Mortchai Sztejnsapir, my 3rd great-uncle. He was the son of Leyzer Roterosen Sztejnsapir and Gittl (no maiden surname). I have found an 1847 JRI-Poland marriage record for Nyszko Sztejnsapir, son of Lejzor and Gittla, which makes the groom born c.1818.  Leyzer may have had children with two different wives, both named Gittl (or some variation).  I'd like to see what can be gleaned that will clarify any of these facts.

The original source of the image is https://www.szukajwarchiwach.gov.pl/en/skan/-/skan/68a441974a0ee3eca29d0fafd9e886f3dbd8f891fe328c1e016bf6dbb060633b

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

Thank you very much.

Hi
my grandfather Jozef Friedman Ernst born in horodischshe near Lvov and sambor in 9/15/1904 had been married a first time to a woman and they had two Little girls. The woman and the children were murdered during the Shoah. What I have is just a photo of their wedding and I would like to find the name of this woman and maybe of the children to honour and pray for them. I don’t know if it’s possible to find a wedding act because they certainly got married in the end of the 20’s or beggining of the 30’s (so more than 100 years) and without knowing her name I don’t know how to do. May someone help me?

Sandy,

I think you will find that JRI-Poland approached Yad Vashem 2 years ago and began to work with them to develop the API that other organizations are now sharing the use of.

Research Request for Museum of Jewish Heritage NYC #usa

dbpdallas@...
 

Hello,

The Museum of Jewish Heritage in NYC holds in its collection, the Pinkas of the Schwerzner Benevolent Association Chevra Kadisha (Id no. 2001.A.17) My immigrant ancestors, David (d. 1931) and Rose (d. 1936) Passman appear in the Pinkas in the listings for Mount Lebanon Cemetery. I've attempted emailing, calling, and sending certified mail requests to the museum requesting a copy of the page on which my ancestors appear to no avail. Is there anyone on this forum who would be able to visit the museum and obtain an image of the record? 

Gratefully yours,
David Passman

Town in Russia - Markus Family #translation

Gavin Simms
 

Hi,
 
I'm having trouble transcribing the town in Russia Hannah Rachel (my grear-grandmother) and Lena Markus were from.
 
It reads Wakena, or Ulekena on Lena's, and Veana on Rachel's (not helped by they wrote it in the wrong place and then overwrote). These are from the 1921 UK Census.
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 
Best,

The short answer is no. The SA records we have found to date are marriage and death records which were found by a cousin originally from S Africa, but now living in Austrailia. These records were, I believe, from Family Search.
I'll contact him again and see if he has any ideas.

Re: British census terms #unitedkingdom

According to Edward Higgs' book A Clearer Sense of the Census (HMSO, London, 1996), pages 66-68, the distinction was between boarders, who took their meals at the same table as the family, and lodgers, who lived in the same house as the family but took their meals separately.

Re: Lithuania/Latvia and South Africa #southafrica #general #lithuania

I had two members of my family who went to South Africa from UK, one permanently and one temporarily. Bessie Leah Brown married a Cohen (later Conyers) in Edinburgh in 1906 (her family had come to Edinburgh in 1870 from what is now Vistytis in Lithuania but was Wiestieniec in Suwalki, Poland when they left). She left for Cape Town with her husband in 1906 and then her family went onto Australia in 1970's. 

My great uncle Abraham Simon Guttenberg later Graham had an argument with his father in Sheffield, when he was in his teens and left for Johannesburg (the family had gone to Hull from Rajgrod in Lomza Gubernia in NE Poland in c 1865). He came home to marry and then took his wife (Minnie Gorfunkle of Liverpool) out to S. Africa, where they had two daughters, but one died.  He returned at outbreak of WW1. His wife hated South Africa. This is all in his memoirs deposited in Sheffield City Library. He knew Mahatma Ghandi and some of the Jewish mining entrepreneurs to whom he supplied goods and services e.g. Barney Barnato.  

There was a lot of onward migration from UK at turn of 20th century when the Aliens Act came in in 1905. Several family members who had originally come in 1860s and 1870s and who had not naturalised left, mainly for USA.

Dear Aula!
Thank you for your letter. I see from it that life in the wide world is taking its normal course, while my life is monotonous, one day like another. As in the old days, I am seeing „Alojzy” and  „Czarny-Abecadło” („Black-ABC”); but unfortunately even this nears its end. I am very glad that your future is good as you procede along your new road in life.
Aula, you ask me for (illegible word); my father will give it to your sister after the holidays and if you can do anything, please write to my address. My father will arrange everything for you, I cannot speak in your name.
I am ending this letter, because I have a lot of work to do before the upcoming holiday. Please write to me often, your letters please me a lot and even more than that…
Stay well. I am waiting for your reply. Warm–hearted greetings to you from everyone around here.

It's possible that the aunt she was referring to just lived in
Konigberg (umlaut on the o) , and that it was not her surname at all.
