If not Ellis Island, then where? #general

bxzi@...
 

Hi everyone.

I always believed that my maternal grandparents had come to America
through Ellis Island.
However, when I tried putting their names through the Ellis Island
website, nothing came up.

Does anyone have any ideas regarding what other place they might have
come through that is in the New York City area? Any web addresses for
those places similar to the Ellis Island site? Any and all suggestions
would be appreciated.

Thanks for everyone's help.

Hi Tom,

1 it is not in Wikepedia, afaik, but in lookalikes.

2 if you follow the links to that railway "bahn" it is a branching track
to the terminal station called "Engelberg".

3 I didn't say Stangelberg does not exist, I was the one suggesting that
Stangelberger is not a man on a hill, but a man in a place called
Stangelberg.

4 There is even a family name "von Stangelberg" in Google.

I only think that that link to a railway station is a mistake, and the
place probably is not in Switserland.

Since the place cannot be found by contemporary map-engines,
[<http://www.viamichelin.com/> has a country entry "Europe", very
usefull,] I would wager, it is a place in eastern Europe, long since
renamed to a Slavic name.

However, it is not[yet?] in ShtetlSchleppers.
In fact, if you study the 3,000+ results on Google all but 300 are in
German, which doesn't suggest that it is a specifically Jewish name.

In fact, there was apparently a film in 1940 "Wiener G'schichten" where
there was a character of that name.

There was also apparently an Austrian artist called Rudolf Stangelberger.

If I key in do a search on Stangelberger and Jewish or Judisch, I obtain no
results. Whereas if I key in Landau and Jewish I obtain 55,000 results which
with possibly suggests that this is not a particularly Jewish name.

Do you have particular evidence that this is a Jewish name. After all this
might be like the Sherlock Holmes case of the dog that didn't bark.

Descendants of Avraham and Sheindle HOROWITZ nee RUDISH of Yelisavetgrad #general

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

I am researching the family of Avraham and Sheindle HOROWITZ (or any
variation of the spelling)(nee RUDISH/RUDIS/RUDICH). They probably lived in
(or in the vicinity of) Yelisavetgrad; Avraham died prior to 1906 and
Sheindle prior to 1901.
Avraham and Sheindle had two children that I am aware of: Nessie and Sara
Laia (born 1872).
I am interested in learning anything I can about Avraham and Sheindle; their
families; any other descendants they might have had; as well as the family
of Nessie.
Nessie HOROWITZ married Israel NEUMANN. Their children were:
Ilya/Eliyahu/Eli/Elia born about 1890 in Yelisavetgrad; Grisha and Luba
(both probably born in the late 1890s).

I would greatly appreciate hearing >from anyone with HOROWITZ, RUDISH or
NEUMANN connections >from Yelisavetgrad. Please respond privately.

Thank you.

Thanks for the online digitalized version but it is not the complete book.
The link was only to the section on America.
I once took it out of the library here in Israel at Tel-Aviv U.
If I remember the index was alphabetized according to first names.
I was looking for Rabbis for the shtetl sites I had built.

There are two excellent ways to get info about people >from Ostrowiec

1. The Ostrowiec Yiskor Book, and

2. On line, go to Jewish Gen and search the records for Kielce.

It appears that, in the past, the records for Ostrowiec were kept in Kielce.

Helen is correct that the Jewish vital records for Ostrowiec

Ostrowiec Swietokrzyski Jewish vital records are housed at

new translations from LITA yizkor book #belarus

Four new translations >from the LITA Yizkor Book, Vol. 1 are now available at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/lita/lita.html:

-Alyta (Alytus)
-A Short Visit to Alytus
-Keidan (Keidainiai)
-Palanga

At the above link you will also find an English table of contents for
Volumes 1 and 2, with live links to all articles translated to date.
In addition, there is an index of all personal names and place names
mentioned in both volumes.

LITA is the traditional Yiddish term for "Jewish Lithuania."
Historically it has included not only the present-day country of
Lithuania, but also border areas that are now part of Latvia
(Courland or Kurland) to the northwest and Belarus to the southeast.
An enormous amount of material covering a wide range of geographical
areas and topics remains to be translated. However, we cannot
continue to fund translations without your donations. These can be
made online at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23,
where you are asked to also make a donation to JewishGen, which
finances the infrastructure to make online translations a reality.

The co-coordinators for the LITA translation project are Max Heffler,

will be glad to answer any questions you have.
