Re: Johann Ludwig Geldmacher #germany

Robert Weinberg <weinberg@...>
 

Dear Dennis, My grandfather, with whom I grew up, was from Wolfhagen as were his ancestors for the previous century.  There was a history of the Jews in W. (chapter in a history book of W.) and I'm almost positive that, among the lists of Jews in W., there was no Geldmacher, an unusual name to be sure.  I would also opine that J.L. Geldmacher was not a Jew, since the name "Johann" was never ever used by Jews in Germany, even in more modern times,; Ludwig was used in more modern times by Jews but never in 18th century W. by the Jews, who were religiously very very conservative and used at the time given names that were essential exclusively biblical or post-biblical Jewish  (Hebrew or Judeo-German) names. I fear that this website will not be of much use to you. Perhaps some Googling using the Wolfhagen term will turn something up, e.g., church baptismal records.   Good luck and best wishes, Bob Weinberg, Brookline MA

Dear Michael,
in addition to what Andreas Schwab wrote: In Germany, church records are also available, mostly in the local parishes and/or in the higher-level church record archive.

Re: UK registration of Jewish births #unitedkingdom

Marsha
 

Further to Harvey's suggestions, it maybe worthwhile to explore variations of Sapiere.  Freebmd (https://www.freebmd.org.uk/) has a very good free search of English birth indexes with very flexible wild card options.  For these early births, Freebmd does not give mother's maiden name but you can feed the information into the General Register Office (GRO) birth record search (https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/indexes_search.asp) which does give mother's maiden name.  If you find a birth record on GRO you can order a pdf copy (for a fee).

The following births look promising Harris SAPIERE 1884 Leeds, Betsey SAPIERE 1886 Huddersfield, Jacob Wolf SAPPERI 1890 Leeds, Leah SAPPERI 1892 Leeds, Rachel SAPERIA 1894 Leeds.

I believe I have also found the family on Ancestry in the 1891 census under the name Saperia (transcribed by Ancestry as Saperid)

Viewmate #97815 - translation (? Polish) #translation

Robert Fraser
 

This is an inscription on the back of a family photo. I don't know the language; it may be Polish. The date is probably early 1900s. If it helps, the man was a bandsman in the Russian army.


A translation would be greatly appreciated.

My father was born in Tomashpol, Ukraine in 1885 but when he was 3 years old his parents moved 200 kilometers away to Kishinev, Bessarabia, presumably by train, in what is now Moldava. He was saved in the 1903 Kishinev Pogrom because he spent that Pesach with his paternal grandparents in Tomashpol.

Hyman GOLDING #ukraine

rv Kaplan
 

Looking for any information about a Golding family who were listed in
the Gorbals immigrant area of Glasgow in the 1911 Census.

The widow Ethel Golding was 56 and born in Odessa, Ukraine. Perhaps
her original name was Goldinger?

Ethel had given birth to 8 children, of which only 4 were still
living. Only 1 of the children was living with her in 1911 - 23 year
old Hyman Golding, also born in Odessa and a wood carver.

Hyman had left Glasgow and was living in London by 1914.

Does anyone have any knowledge of what became of Hyman and his mother Ethel?

thanks
