Help in Koln needed #general

Luiz Alfredo Lilienthal <lilienth@...>
 

Could anyone help me to obtain a photograph of the tombstone of my
ggrandfather Hugo ELIAS, as well as a copy of his death certificate? He
died in Koln (Koln-Sulz) either the last days of April or the first days
of May, 1936.

If any expenses are involved, I would be happy to refund them.

TIA.

A happy and healthy New Year to everybody!

SHEFFY'S in Israel. #general

Mel Schwey <bq780@...>
 

Every now and then I like to inquire if a Sheffy is on the internet. I
know that a Schwey went to Palestine in 1910, and changed his name to Sheffy.
If any Sheffy has access to the internet please get in touch with me as I
would love to exchange notes with you.

LeShana Tova to all,
Mel Schwey.

Ordering records from Lithuanian archives #general

Theo Travis <travis@...>
 

I am thinking of ordering a search for my KAGAN family >from the Lithuanian
archives in Vilnius, but I am not sure whether records exist for this
particular shtetl (Gudel). It was part of Marijampole uezd, so it is
possible the records may be in with those >from Marijampole. I already have a
few Marijampole records but cannot connect them to my family, as I only know
a couple of first names. I would like to send the check with the request to
speed things up a bit, but what happens if there are no records for this
shtetl? Will they send the check back?

UK electoral registers #general

David Fielker <david@...>
 

Further to Harold Pollins' informative posting:

In London electoral registers are held by the main public library in each
borough, though they do not always have every one.

By looking through a range of years, and seeing when family members appear
and disappear, it is often easy to guess approximate dates of births,
marriages and deaths, which can then be followed up at the Family Records
Centre.

For an example of such methodology, see "Electoral registers, a useful
resource" in Shemot, June 1995. (For source, see the Web site of the JGS of
Gt Britain, <www.ort.org/jgsgb>.)

Searching: Louis BUDNICK #general

Gail Mittelman <gailmann@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,

I'm fairly new at this, and could really use some guidance. I'm searching
for information on my gt uncle Louis Budnick. I've located him in the 1920
Pennsylvania Census, and I have a street address for him in Los Angeles in
1941. No luck in SSDI. Only had daughters, so no luck with name after that.
Is there any other way to track down a death certificate other than SSDI?
Don't have date of death. Any other govt. records (State, City, etc.)?
Where do I go >from here? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Gail Mittelman

Is this a Jewish name? #general

Christopher Carson <kitcarson@...>
 

Hello,
While researching our family tree we came across some ancestors who came to
the U.S. >from Germany in the 1800s. Their last name was Bollesfeldt, but
they changed it to Bellis.
I am Scot/Irish mix, so am not sure about German names yet. My sister said
there are no listings in Germany for the name Bollesfeldt now. Could this
be a Jewish surname and how would we find out more?
Thank you for your time,
Chris Carson

Re: Molive, Russia - Thank you #general

Michael Kranish <mkranish@...>
 

My thanks to the many people who responded >from around the world to my
question about what town was once called Molive, Russia. The most
popular response was Mogilev, Belarus, with a few votes for a similar
sounding town in Ukraine. Your help is truly appreciated.

Searching: BERNSTEIN-BERENSTINE (Kalvaria to Detroit, 1860's) #general

JoanSGross@...
 

I am looking for descendants of Yehezekiel Bernstein (AKA Berenstein,
Burnstine, Birnstine, etc.) who left Kalvaria, Suvalki for Detroit in the
1860's or 1870's and eventually ended up in the Port Richmond section of
Philadelphia where he was joined by some of his relatives as well as former
landsleit, Asher Silverman, Pinchas Levy, Shmuel Natan Michal & Moshe Gorman.

Yehezekial (Ezekial) Bernstein had a son, David Bernstein, who was living in
1929. I don't know when he was born. Also living in this neighborhood in
1877 were Jacob Berenstein, who I believe was Yehezekial's son, an A.
Berenstein and an M. Berenstein.

If you have any information on this Bernstein family and their descendants,
please contact me by e-mail : joansgross@aol.com. Thanks.
