APELOIG Family #general

Evelyne Pewzner Apeloig <evelyne.pewzner@...>
 

My maiden name is APELOIG. I am doing some genealogical research about my
family who came >from Poland, Lukow, a small town near Lublin.
Some members of the family emigrated to USA, California, and changed their
name into Appell or maybe Appelle or Apel. Can you help me to find some
relatives?
Thank you. Sincerely yours.

Re: searching OHAYON - a London Sephardic research saga *success story* - Pt 2 #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Here is a fascinating sequel to my posting on this family. I had not time or
space to write about it in Part 1, in which I wrote:

..... Censuses of England and there I find two OHAYON:

1. 1881 census - an unmarried servant born in Mogador, Africa
Kate OHAYON abt 1861 Mogador, Africa Servant Whitechapel ....

but if you go ***back*** one page of the 1881 census - guess who Kate is living
next door to? None other than Rose DURAN and her family. Remember Rose DURAN
married Simon OHAYON >from Morocco and had a baby daughter, before she died in
1894. The baby daughter Simha, who called herself Dorothy in adulthood {and who
I now know never revealed much of her past family history}, is the grandmother
of our questioner, Angela Hurst.

So. we can see it all: Kate's visiting brother meets and falls in love with
next door neighbour. So Kate is a family member too. But there is another
possibility and I will keep that punch line to the end.

What about the next door neighbours - the DURAN family - they are very
interesting as the children were all born in *America*: Rebecca widow aged 42
born London; daughters Stella 22 teacher; {our} Rose 20 teacher; Evelyn 16
teacher; Hellen [sic] 8.

Perhaps someone can follow them up in the USA as I do not have the means to do
this. They must have been there till at least 1873.

And one further point Simon OHAYON's sister Mary/Miriam who is seven years his
junior was apparently born in Portugal, but all the other listed siblings
living in the UK were born in Morocco. So this family must have moved from
Portugal to Morocco after 1855 - unless Miriam was born in a
Portuguese-Moroccan enclave in 1855 [Cape Verde perhaps - or perhaps they
wrongly indexed Mogador as Portugal?]

So who were the DURAN family? Please note that there are bona-fide
English/Scottish/Irish DURAN as well! I am not yet sure if this is *our*
family, but I suspect it is, first appearing in the 1861 England Census:

Boruck DURAN age 66 Estimated birth year: abt 1795; Male; Where born:
***Algeria*** - 8 Children: Rosalie 26; Hannah 23; ? Duran 20; Saul 16; ?
Duran 15; Rebecca 12; Rachel 7; Julia 2;

One of these DURAN boys could be the father of Rose DURAN the first wife of
Simon OHAYON. So now we can come to another tantalising conclusion, namely that
the DURAN and OHAYON knew each other or were possibly even related.

Both families were North African Sephardic Jews. Young Kate OHAYON may have got
her servant job next door to the DURAN because they found it for her. So
probably it was not just chance that Simon OHAYON and Rose DURAN met and got
married - the families may have known each other for generations!

This has been an exilarating journey for me and I hope for Angela too.

Re: Uranium Steamship Company #general

Peter Zavon <pzavon@...>
 

Judging by the name of the company and the name of the vessel, I suspect
this was a one-ship company and likely ceased to exist when the ship changed
name again (was sold) or went out of service.

For more authoritative specifics, you might look for a library that has the
annual issues of Lloyd's Register. This is an annual listing of ships,
their descriptions, owners, etc. One can track, year by year, the
ownership, condition, changing Masters, etc. Any library that has this will
also have substantial additional references on ships and shipping lines.

Some years ago I spent several hours at the Library of the Maritime Museum
in Liverpool (UK) looking over Register editions >from earlier that your
interest. Other maritime museum libraries may have similar resources.

Thank you for the link, but I was already aware of the outlines of the
ship's history, and I'm not really interested in the ship. I'm
interested in the company, and whether any of its passenger records
survive, or whether there would be other records in Rotterdam or
Canada with information beyond the Canadian Official Manifest
available online.


Searching: STEINER, Ramat Gan, Israel 1975 #general

cbaliner@...
 

Greetings,

Carol W. Skydell suggested I post my inquiry here.

Here is what I know:

I visited Israel a while ago, when I was in high school, 1975. I visited my
cousins when I was there. They lived, at that time, in Ramat Gan. Since then
my parents have passed away and we all lost contact with one another. I would
like to reconnect with my Israeli cousins. I am studying Hebrew but am not yet
able to fully read Israeli websites.

My cousins are Hans and Fritzi STEINER and they have two sons, Gadi and Michael.
I believe that Michael is a graduate of The Technion. Gadi once worked for El Al
Israel Airlines. I would guess that Gadi and Michael might be grandparents by
now and I did hear that Gadi has two daughters and they all are still in Israel.
My sister had a phone number for Gadi but she has misplaced it.

If at all possible, and due to privacy concerns, if you find my cousins, would it
be possible for you to send them my email and let them know of my desire to
reconnect with them?

Or, perhaps someone in Israel may be abel to assist me and look up my cousins in
an Israeli phone book and send me any information.

My information:
My mother was Phyllis Baliner (nee Ehrlich), grandmother Eva Ehrlich (nee
Salias), great grandmother Minnie Salias (nee Unger). All lived in New York,
New York, USA. Minnie's mother Katherine Unger is >from either Mainz or
Darmstadt, Germany. I believe the Steiners are related to the Ungers.

Thank you very much for your time and assistance!

Please send responses to cbaliner@...

Sincerely,

Carl J. Baliner

BENGELSDORF #general

Morton BENGELSDORF emigrated to New York >from Poland.
He was born Nov 19, 1912. His parents were Zelik Suja
(Simon) BENGELSDORF, born Dec 29, 1879 in Poland and
Feiga LEIBIK, born about 1888 in Stawiski Poland.

I know they had children Morton (don't know his
Yiddish or Hebrew name), also daughter Neche (Nellie)
born in Ostrow Mazowiecka and Icek (Isaac) also born
in Ostrow.

The family lived in Brooklyn NY.

I am seeking information about this family. Morton
married into my husband's GORDON family.

Any connections would be greatly appreciated.

GRUZINSKY/SHAPEAREY/PAUL #general

Paula Eisenstein Baker
 

Dear listers,

I am posting the scattered pieces of information I have about three
brothers named GRUZINSKY or SHAPEAREY or PAUL in hopes that someone will
recognize a part or all of the picture.

My maternal great-grandfather was one of (at least) three boys born
between ca. 1851 and 1866 to Joseph haLevi and Anna (Yosef + Chana) in
Kovno guberniia (Lithuania; I don't know what town--possibly
'Auguschan', which I have not located). The family name may have been
GRUZINSKI (or some variation, e.g., GRODZINSKY) or SHAPEAREY (or some
variation).

son 1) Meyer Ber (haLevi) GRUZINSKIE (the name and spelling he used),
born ca. 1851, my mggf. He arrived in Newburyport, Massachusetts (near
Boston), ca. 1887 and sent for his wife (Peshe KONACHEVSKY) and their
only child, Chaya Gittel/Gertrude (my grandmother), soon thereafter.
They moved to Boston before the turn of the century and to New York in
1903 when Gertrude married Bernard G. Richards (Dov/Ber haLevi
Rubinowitz), my grandfather. Meyer Ber died in the Bronx, NY, in 1936.

son 2) Pesach Aaron (haLevi), born ca. 1866. He arrived in Boston >from
England or Scotland in time to be married in Boston 3 January 1896 (to
Esther WARSHAFSKY) and died in Boston in 1940. He and his wife had two
sons, Sidney (b. 1896) and Robert (b. 1898). I have NOT found the record
of his arrival in the US, but I can document the marriage, the births of
their children, and his Hebrew name (provided by his granddaughter).

In the US, Pesach Aaron used the name Henry PAUL, but in a Grand Lodge
of Scotland document dated 12 February 1890, he was using the name Paul
SHAPEAREY. (A grandson has that document.)

Henry PAUL/Paul SHAPEAREY was definitely my ggrandfather's brother.
After my mother and father visited England in 1936, P/S wrote my mother
that if he had known about her trip, he would have put her in touch with
cousins there (I don't know whether the cousins were actually in England
or in Scotland). And in 1940, just days before he died, P/S traveled
from Boston to New York to visit my mother and one of my uncles: a
letter >from my uncle describes the visit.

son 3) supposedly Misha (Hebrew name unknown). Two instances of the last
name
SHAPEAREY appear in Scottish records, the first of whom might be Misha:

"Morris SHAPEARY U 23 M Poland, Picture Manufacturer" (slight variation
in spelling) appears in the Glasgow Census of 1881, boarding at 157 Holm
Street in Barony, Lanark, Scotland.

Another SHAPEARY appears in the 1891 census: "Philip M 23 Rathven/Banff."

I do *not* know whether either of these men is part of the
same family.

Please send any suggestions/clues/information directly to me at
eisenbak@.... A similar message has already appeared on both the
Great Britain lists. Please excuse multiple postings!
