Difficult research problem in London #unitedkingdom

Linda Altman <altmanlh@...>
 

I have a brick wall and I am hoping that someone out there can help. My problem
is searching for documents in London for my great grandfather Barnet(t) Shapiro.
Here is what I am told, most of this so far is documented:

Barnet(t) SHAPRIO born about 1880 in Wysokie Mazowieckie, Poland. His birth name
was Benzion SZABAS. He was the son of Nathan SHAPIRO (known in Poland as Nissan
Zev SZABAS, nickname was Nitsky) and an unknown woman. About 1888, Barnet was
sent >from Poland to London, England. He was educated there and apprenticed to be
a baker there. In 1903, he left the UK >from Liverpool and immigrated to the US
(passenger manifests confirm this). I can trace him in the US. Once established
as a baker in New York City, he sent money back to his "adoptive" family in
London. Barnet did not marry, or die in London. Are there school records or
apprenticeship records that can be checked to verify his stay there? He was a
bread baker. He had an uncle who married in Holborn, London in 1911 (certified
copy of marriage record is in my possesion). His name was Jack CHILLAR, a
jeweler, and he married a protestant woman named Dora Ruth BARLOW, daughter of
Horace BARLOW, a commercial traveler. The witnesses to Jack and Dora's marriage
are Barnet MILLER and Golda MILLER.

Does anyone have any idea on how to proceed with my search for Barnet SHAPIRO
a.k.a. Benzio SZABAS, in London? Thanks in advance.

Re: ALTMAN & KRAMER #general

Roger Lustig <trovato@...>
 

Dear Katarina:

As before, let me remind you:

---Many Jews lived in Germany.---

In much of Germany, Jews did not have fixed surnames until 1812 or even
later. At that time, German Jews took all kinds of surnames.

Many of these names were based on the profession of the person taking
the name. Someone who ran a small shop might well have called himself
Kramer or Kraemer.

As for "Altmann", there are plenty of records of Jews taking that name.
There's no reason to expect any name (except perhaps Kohn) to be truly
"Jewish".

My great-great-grandmother Friederike Altmann was Jewish. Her father,
Leopold Altmann, was also Jewish, and was probably the person who
originally took the name. He and his daughter were not "accepted as
Jewish"--they were Jewish. Names don't have religions--people do.

Who's calling Kramer a "Jewish name"? It's a German name, and some of
the German Jews and German-speaking Jews chose that name.

Or do you mean something else by "100% German"?

In America he became Sam - not Samuel - but Sam.

LIEBERMAN, WITKIND, ELLENBERG, FINKELSTEIN, WEISSBROT #general

Yocheved Klausner
 

Dear Genners,
You may observe >from the enclosed two lineages that in the course of the
17th-19th centuries the KLAUSNERs changed their surname, due to various
reasons, to LIEBERMAN, ELLENBERG, WITKIND, WEISSBROT, FINKELSTEIN (all
spellings). That does not mean that all LIEBERMANs,…….., FINKELSTEINs were
KLAUSNERs, only some.
If you know or suspect that one of the families you are searching may
originate in the KLAUSNER family please contact me.
Also if you would like to know if the family you are searching does or does
not originate in the KLAUSNER family I suggest we compare our data. I have
additional data in the different lineages.

Searching for family of Joseph Marks #general

Jean Perkin <jean@...>
 

Joseph Marks, originally Joseph Mordechai Derevianski of Zaludok, Belarus,
had a furniture store in Main Street Bradford Penn. He was trading from
there in 1920 definitely, perhaps 1930s.

He had 2 sons and 4 daughters - names unknown. In 1920 one son was studying
law in Cleveland Ohio. Before this he had volunteered for the US Army in
WW11.

He had a sister Yudis Epstein who lived in N Jersey. She had 4 daughters,
Tilly, Rose, Evelyn and perhaps Betty!

A descendant of the brother of Joseph Marks is interested in discovering if
any of these families are around.

Please reply privately. Thank you.

Haven. I think you want to search around Waterbury, not New Haven, as
the cities are over 20 miles apart and both are moderately large
cities.
