Surnames possible - A Jew by the name of Christian #general

SarahLMC@...
 

Dear Jewish genners,
When I saw my last posting, I realized that I had left out a key word:
"Tzaddik". My husband is a ger tzaddik. We met in shul on Friday night, and
were introduced by the sister of the president of the congregation. He was
already a member, and I was a visitor. When he joined that congregation it was
Orthodox, although by the time that I met him, it had become Conservative.
While at the kotel in 1996, he had an aliyah on Shabbat. It was the highlight
of our trip. (I of course, was in the women's section and was unaware of it,
until after we went back to the hotel).

Hi Martha - two contacts in two days. See:
http://www.rootsweb.com/~ilcivilw/reg_html/cav_016.htm
Probably more than you every thought you would find on the 16th Cav.
It's a subfile of: http://www.rootsweb.com/~ilcivilw/

I located it very quickly via the American Civil War Homepage
http://sunsite.utk.edu/civil-war/

There is a discussion group devoted solely to the US Civil War where I'm
sure you will find a wealth of information. The group is very active and
I"m sure if you post a request for information about the 16th Illinois
Cav. you will get a response
The group can be found at: soc.history.war.us-civil-war
There is also a 100 plus documentary history of the Civil War published
by the US government in the 1870s or 1880s. I contains all the reports
and dispatched filed by both sides. There is an index which includes
units. These resource is now available on CD ROM which many Civil War
buffs have. I'm sure if you ask someone to search for the unit, you
will find someone more than willing. Unfortunately I do not recall the
name of thius set, but if you browse the postings, you will see
references. I believe the title is something like: The Official Record
of the Rebellion?? Any soldiers name which appears in any report or
dispatch is listed in the index, so you may want to sk if someone can
search you relatives name as well.

Good luck

Re: Two books that sound very helpful #general

MBernet@...
 

In a message dated 98-08-24 18:49:17 EDT, martha@bgumail.bgu.ac.il mentions as
a source for names:

<< 100761 Une Histoire de Familles/Toledano,Joseph/Jerusalem/Ramtol/1998
Les noms de famille Juifs d'Afrique du Nord:Maroc,Algerie,Tunisie;des
origines a nos jours; Enlarged edition of "La Saga des Familles" >>

For those who are impatient, or find this book inaccessble, you might wish to
look into Andre Chouraqui's BETWEEN EAST AND WEST: A history of the Jews of
North Africa. Jewish Publication Society (Philadelphia), 1968 which lists
quite a few names in the index. The Bibliography lists some 40+ sources (alas,
the names of the publishers are not given, only the year and date of
publication).

Fortunately, Chouraqui mentions a megasource for information:

Attal, Robert: bibliography published in *Sefunot* Vol V, 1961, p. 467 of the
Ben Zvi Institute, Jerusalem. It was published also as "Bibliography on North
African Jewry" in Be'tfusot Ha'golah in 1961--presumably an Israeli journal.

For the sloppiness in the bibliography I take at least part responsibility; I
translated into English and partly updated the book--but it does give some
good leads to other sources.

Frankfurt Jewish Families #general

Roger Cibella & David Baron <baroncibella@...>
 

Dear Frankfurt Jewish researchers,

We have found that many of the Jewish Families >from Germany that we are
searching are interrelated, so to better understand the family connections,
we have just
finished publishing a website of the Jewish Families of Frankfurt am Main.
This site contains a brief history of the Frankfurt community and numerous
family trees that were compiled >from our family trees, other researchers and
from Dr.
Dietz book Stammbaum der Frankfurter Juden.

Most of the families covered are followed only to the middle of the 19th
century. You will see that the trees are incomplete; therefore, we are
asking that all researchers who are interested, and who have more up-to-date
data, be linked to the various family pages covered on the site. We asked
that researchers provide us with email addresses, urls to your own family
home pages, or other links that will help other cyber-researchers in their
quest for more information on Frankfurt Jews as well as other communities in
Germany.

Here is a list of the family trees presented on this site so far:
Beer, Beyfus, Bing, Buchsbaum/Doctor, Cahn, Cramer, Dann Florscheim, Fuld,
Fulda, Gans, Getz/Amschel, Goldschmidt-Kassel, Goldschmidt from
Oberlistingen, Goldschmidt-Hamel, Guggenheim >from Worms, Haas, Hahn, Hanau,
Kann, Kirchheim, Kulp, Landau, Levy, Low-Beer, Maas, Mainz, Ochs,
Oppenheim(er), Rapp, Reiss/Elissen, Rinskopf, Rothschild, Schames, Scheyer,

Lost Info on ZELIKSON #general

LuvBritCom <luvbritcom@...>
 

I posted a message regarding info on the surname of ZELIKSON. First of all I
would like to thank all of those who were so kind to respond. My computer
crashed and I lost all the info that I had obtained.

I remember one post about two sisters that were hidden. I think that Malka ( if
I remember right) was related to my father Sam (Sieka or Sasha). Sometime ago I
received a copy of an interview with her >from the musuem that was mentioned in
the e-mail, sent to me. In the article she talks of my father and his family.
She also is under the idea that my father had not survived.

I was wondering if the person who had sent me the original e-mail about Malka
can please get in touch with me again. I would deeply appreciate it!

Thank you

Names and Sedras #general

Does anyone know the max statutory time allowed between birth and
registration in UK.
My mother celebrated here birthday on Feb 1st ( a day on which she later
married ) however her B Cert
gives the d o b as April 1st 1894 registered May 5 1894. My mother name was
Miriam a unique name in her previous family history and family lore has it
that the name is taken >from the Sedra of the week in which she was born.

Feb 1 1894 = 25 Shevat = Mishpatim = Exodus 21.1
Apl 1 1894 = 24 Adar 2 = Zazria = Levit 12.1

Neither seem relevant to Miriam - what does the panel think ?

Obliterated Certificate Number #general

Foodphile@...
 

Hello Everyone. While at the FHC I found the soundex card which I believe
refers to my ggrandfather Liber (Louis) KELLNER's arrival at Ellis Island Feb.
1, 1906. Unfortunately, the certificate number has been wiped out except for
the last two digits which are 59. Can I please have your expert opinions as
to how I can proceed. I want to locate the Manifest to confirm that this is
Louis. The card read this way:
Kellner Liber 3 pass. Russia Zeeland Red Bta
Feb 01, 1906 ---59.
As always, thanks for any help you can offer.
