Looking for descendants of J. Estis (b. 1890, Kaztin) #general

Pesha Lea
 

Looking for descendants of Jack (Yankel, Yacov, Jacob?) Estis (b. about 1890,
probably Koziatyn, Ukraine). His parents are Leah Schechter and Hersh Estis.
Patronymic Gershovitch. His siblings are my grandfather Morris Estis (b. 1894,
Kaztin, Koziatyn, Ukraine: d.New Jersey), Isack Estis (b. 1896, Koziatyn, Ukraine:
d. New York), Abraham Estis (b about 1900, d. Montreal), Tuba Estis (b. 1905, d.
New jersey). The siblings of Jack Estis came to the states in 1913 and 1914 and
Abraham, Tuba, and Leah came to Montreal in 1926.

In 1926 the address of J. Estis was given as Col. Wedjamcy Poselck, Russia.

Jack Estis was married with at least four children. One of my cousins has a photo.

My dad's first cousin (b. 1940) told me yesterday that she remembers her mother
sending them packages after the war! So I have renewed hope that they have
survived. I now believe that the above address is a colony.

We are beginning DNA testing. I would appreciate any suggestions

My Grandfather's Brother #southafrica

Barrie Fisher <barriefisher2003@...>
 

In anticipation of a cruise to South Africa this coming March, I am searching for
possible cousins in Cape Town or Johannesburg. I began my search with the
boyhood stories >from my Grandmother concerning my Grandfather. My grandfather's
name was Benjamin Cohn. According to my grandmother, he and his brother immigrated
from Lithuania in the late 1800s, my granddad to the USA and his brother to South
Africa. Their family name, according to my Grandmother was Michaeloff. I'm not
sure of the spelling or where exactly they came >from in Lithuania, or if they
came >from Lithuania at all. However, my loving grandmother relayed this
information to me. I never spoke with my grandfather; he died in 1930 in
Pittsburgh, Pa., years before my birth. However, this is a starting point!

Benjamin Cohn, according to US census was born in 1881 and immigrated to the US
in 1886. My grandmother told me that he did not speak English and cousins who met
him at the boat gave him their last name, Cohn. I know this Ben Cohn is really
my grandfather. His records >from Monongahela , Pa. and Pittsburgh, Pa. show my
mother and uncle and aunt, her brother and sister.

I have been in communication with a Michaeluv family in Johannesburg, who are
quite active in this genealogy search for their family. I'm calling them
hononary cousins, but continuing my search. I would like to find possible blood
cousins. I believe they would have immigrated to Cape Town in the late 1880s or
1890s. I thank you for any help or direction you can provide!

Bolotin and Narinsky ancestors in Romny #ukraine

brianchernin@...
 

Hi, I've been researching my Ukrainian roots for quite a long time and
haven't been lucky. My great-grandmother, Chaya (Clara) Bolotin was
born in Romny, Ukraine in 1894, and she emigrated to the US in 1912.
Unfortunately, she was really secretive about her origin. She never
spoke about her family or her life in Russia. Investigating and
speaking to relatives, I was able to find out that she came >from a
very humble and religious family. Her father was Mendel Bolotin, who
was probably born around 1870 and was a poor peasant. I do not know
where he was born, but I do know he died in the Holocaust c. 1942.
Mendel's wife and my great-grandmother's mother was Liba Narinsky. My
grandfather's sister was named after her, so I assume she died before
1920. My great-grandmother Chaya had several other siblings (about
eight), including one that was born in 1912. the same year she went to
live to the US. Also, I was told that one of her grandmother's name
was Gitel.

Instead of speaking of Romny, my grandfather's sister told me she said
she came >from the Poltavskaya guberniya (where Romny is located in).
The name of the shtetl appeared in her Ellis Island ship manifest. My
great-grandmother emigrated by herself, and never saw any of her
siblings or parents again. She was very good looking, had olive
complexion and blue-gray eyes. She was fairly tall for those times,
about 5'5.

This is all I know. If somebody has any piece of information, please
contact me to my e-mail address: brianchernin@....

Thank you so much!

Commette of Volinski Colonist settlers #ukraine

Paola Khalili
 

Dear All
In a document date 1904 there is an interesting note next to my
gggrandfather name.
It says (translated >from Russian by a professional researcher as)
">from the Committe of Volinski Colonist settlers".
Does anyone know about these committes?
What was their purpose? I'll appreciate if someone can give me
any historical background.

Best regards.

Names embroiling (was RES: The name Rezi) #hungary

tom.venetia@...
 

Just to clarify:
Reza is not a Hungarian male name, it is Iranian.
Rezso" is a Hungarian male name and means Rudolf.=20
Rezsi can be a short form of Regina.
Regina is a Latin name meaning "queen" and the Yiddish equivalent is =
Malka;
since Regina was a name of a Catholic Saint, many Jews changed their =
name to
Rebecca.
Re'zi is the short form of Tere'z (Theresia)
Ro'zsi is the Hungarian diminutive of Ro'zsa (Rose)
Reisel is the Yiddish cognate of Rose
Rozi is the Hungarian diminutive of Roza'lia=20

(All the above prove how important are the ligatures and accents in
Hungarian which are not rendered by JewishGen's server)

Seeking KUNSZTLER from Puspokladany/Debrecen/Hajdu(-Bihar) megye #hungary

edelman@...
 

Hi,

My great-grandmother Hermina's maiden name was Kunsztler. (She married
Erno Klein - probably around 1903-1906). She may have been born in or
near Puspokladany, as that is where her children were born. I have not
been able to find a marriage contract yet. They may have all eventually
moved down the road to Debrecen.

Kunsztler-cousins of hers presumably >from the area first moved to
Israel-Palestine and eventually - or at least descendants - moved to
British Columbia, Canada but it seems we have been out of touch for 30
or 40 years. They visited my great uncle Klein and his family in the
L.A. area in the 1960s or 70s.

Please contact me off list if you have any information.

Thanks!

Re: the name Rezi #hungary

judyyoung@...
 

Rezi is an abbreviated form (a nickname) for Terez or Tereza or Terezia (al=
l variants of Teresa) in Hungarian, and may have been given to girls as Lyn=
n Saul suggests in honour of the Empress Maria Theresa (in Hungarian Maria =
Terezia).

I think Veronica Singer who suggested Reza was a man's name may have got it=
mixed up with Geza which indeed is a man's name.
