Help needed finding maiden name. Married name SALIMAN #names #russia #usa

David Buford
 

My great grandparents were from somewhere in Russia and moved to Denver Colorado in the early 1890's. My G Grandfather Michael's last name was Saliman. His wife's name was Bessie or (Pelte). I have been trying to find out her maiden name. On my grandmother's death certificate, it said Segal was her mother's maiden name, but the more research I have done shows it may have been Schreiber. Someone on ancestry says that Bessie's father was Shalom Schreiber. Her brother was Morris Schreiber who had a son named Joseph. When I look at the 1910 census my G Grandparents lived on Clay St in Denver. There were others, a son and two different inlaw's that lived on Clay st. as well. There is also a Joseph Schreiber on the same street. This is speculation from what I am finding but I have no proof. I was just wondering if anyone out there knows for sure. Also on her gravestone it show's her father's first name was Ze'ev. Any help would be wonderful. Thanks.

Nazi Archive in Poland Sheds Light on Anti-Masonic History #poland #records

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Poland has a vast archive of items that shed light on the history

of Freemasonry in Europe JANEK SKARZYNSKI AFP

 

An old university library in western Poland—UAM in Poznan, is sheding light on works including women’s Masonic ledges and musical scores used in closed ceremonies.  There are 80,000 items dating from the 17th century to pre World War ll period. Fine prints, copies of speeches and membership lists of Masonic lodges in Germany and beyond feature in the archive. Some documents still bear Nazi stamps.

 

“Initially tolerated by the Nazis, Freemasons became the subject of regime conspiracy theories in the 1930s, seen as liberal intellectuals whose secretive circles could become centres of opposition.

 

Lodges were broken up and their members imprisoned and killed both in Germany and elsewhere as Nazi troops advanced during WWII.

 

The collection was put together under the orders of top Nazi henchman and SS chief Heinrich Himmler and is composed of many smaller archives from European Masonic lodges that were seized by the Nazis.”

 

During the war as Allied bombing intensified, the collection was moved from Germany for safekeeping and broken up into three parts -- two were taken to what is now Poland and one to the Czech Republic. The section left in the town of Slawa Slaska in Poland was seized by Polish authorities in 1945, while the others were taken by the Red Army.

 

In 1959, the Polish Masonic collection was formally established as an archive and curators began studying it -- at that time, Freemasonry was banned in the country under Communism.

 

The collection is open to researchers and other visitors.

Are you looking for anything in particular? Have you tried a library? We can't make recommendations if we don't know where you are in the world. The Google search engine produced many results, including this painting offered for sale by an online auction. Is that your interest?

My maternal grandfather also didn't know his birthdate, but said it was during Pesach, so his kids designated April 15 as his birthday.  He really wasn't sure about the year either.  Whether that was because he supposedly lied about his age when he got off the boat at Ellis Island or some other reason is not clear.

New Database: Altona (Hamburg), Germany Vital Records #JewishGenUpdates #germany #announcements #records

Michael Moritz
 

I am excited to report that I have completed indexing the FamilySearch film of Ashkenazi birth, marriage and death records recorded in Altona from the 1820s until 1874. While there are some years missing and others with illegible entries, this is a remarkably complete register documenting the storied community of Altona. In total, this database has over 4,000 entries and contains: 2,016 births, 656 marriages, and 1,397 deaths. Many entries also contain Hebrew names, which have also been transcribed and are searchable.

They can now be searched for free in JewishGen's GerSIG database at https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Germany/

Ver Miller’s Find Lost Russian and Ukrainian Family blog has posted about scanned records online from the Russian and Ukrainian Archives.  If you are not conversant in either language it is advisable to download a language translator such as Google translate https://translate.google.com/ or https://www.deepl.com/en/translator

 

On Vera’s blog she has a video guide on reading Russian records to catch the basic information. She also has a cheat sheet for reading Russian script.

Whilst going through old paperwork I found the attached documents which I ordered but never got translated. I beleive there are from what I think are my family in the 1876 Lithuanian Revision List. Any help in their translation would be very much appreciated. Many thanks in advance. Paul Walman

"I heard a rabbi explain once, but I only recall some of the story. It was important to remember the yahrzeit, the anniversary of their death."
Quite true. But one also must know at least the week of birth of a male child, so as to celebrate his bar mitzvah at the correct time. A lot of boys were told (or they remembered from their bar mitzvah) that they were born during the week of the <whatever> weekly portion of the Torah.

Re: Birth Registry, Minsk - Yivo Archives #belarus #usa

Regarding the Minsk birth records found on the YIVO website, a number of people have asked for the link. It can be found in the folder titled "Minsk Jewish Community Council, 1825-1917". Here is the link: https://archives.cjh.org/repositories/7/archival_objects/397692

There are a number of files that may be of interest to Minsk researchers. The birth records seem to be in both Cyrillic and Yiddish.

Spindler- Grondo #belarus #records #russia

Arthur Pronin
 

Hey
My great grandfather was Simon or Sam Spindler. Born in Grodno Poland 1888. I know his father- per death cert-was Alexander. Sam's mother was Rachel. Alexander never made it to USA-my family has said he "died young." Alex's wife Rachel remarried a name Kopitinick. Sam came to USA through Galveston in 1912-and settled in Kansas City. 

Sam had brother Yankel, a sister Sarah , a sister Mashke. Sam was raised by his grandmother Elke. 

Sam was married in Grodno in 1912 before leaving for America. His wife- Sarah Dovidovich (maiden)-came to USA via canada in 1914. Sarah born 1892.

Ive dug around looking for Alexander's parents. I see many Spindler recs on jewishgen Im almost certain some of these are their's-but I dont know best translations of what Alexander would be or even if...its something else? I see some Dovidovich's  as well -Sarah's parents were Frieda and Meyer. Hoping for some help here on Alex's parents...and possible recs on Sarah's parents...because Im stumped!

The grave locator on Mount Hebron's website (https://www.mounthebroncemetery.com/#search) lists only one Samuel Rosansky. He died on 22 Sep 1943 and is buried in a Workmen's Circle Section. According to the cemetery's records, he was 50 when he died.

No doubt Sam R. #1 and #2 are one and the same person and that like so many immigrants, he was inconsistent in reporting his date of birth. Or in the case of a death certificate, a relative reported a different date. If you want more reassurance, see the home address on Samuel's WWII draft card (with the 15 May 1892 birth date) and on his death record (with the 3 Sept. 1893 birth date); on both, the address is 584 Logan Street, Brooklyn.

The date of birth for #1 was on his marriage certificate, his child's
birth certificate and his death certificate.

The date of birth for #2 was on his WW I draft card, his
naturalization certificate and his passport application.
Could this be the same man? If it is the same man, which date is
more likely for his date of birth?

My father, who was born in what is now Poland related to me that when he asked his mother when he was born she said (in Yiddish of course)  "A week before Pesach"  When he came to the USA he guessed March 15.

Usually they settled on a date at a certain time and gave that one in future records.

I heard a rabbi explain once, but I only recall some of the story. It was important to remember the yahrtzeit, the anniversary of their death. But not to celebrate their birth so much.

Neither date is really more reliable than the other. You'll need to find a birth record in Europe if you want to know the real correct date.
