FREEDMAN Family Surname #general

SADDLE1150@...
 

Does anyone know of a Jack FREEDMAN formerly of Dorchester, MA. By trade he
was a plumber during his working days. I would be interested in locating
information regarding his ancestory and/or descendents. He was a nephew of my
grandfather Jacob Freedman of Riga, Latvia who resided in Boston, MA prior to
his death.

I believe either Jack Freedman or one of his children may have moved to
Framingham, MA.,,,,,,,,thank you.

town????

Dear Debbi. This was the maternal side. Dora Friedman came >from Kurima, now
in Slovakia. She married Morris Lefkowitz. Their daughter, Matilda Lefkowtiz,
married my grandfather , Louis Roth.
This brings up a point. I am having trouble reading Morris' town's name. It
looks like Sebsfenge or Sebspenge. I asked a Slovak geneologist at the recent
geneological meeting at New York University if he recognized the town. He
thought it was Sebestova written in a phonetic form >from a Hungarian dialect.
It also could quite possibly be Sobos, on the Jewish
gen shtetlfinder. Either way, it is probably in Saros County. If anyone has
any ideas as what Sebsfenge or Sebspenge might be, please let me know. Wayne

Looking for shtetl Katzwin or Katzhein, possibly in Slovakia. This name
shows on a marriage record >from 1844, so it could be the German name of an

I suggest you or your friend write to the main HIAS office in NYC. If his
friends came to the U.S. as refugees recently, they would most likely have
gone through the resettlement process though a HIAS affiliate in the US.
HIAS has a search department, and they will ask the affiliate that did the
resettlement to convey the request for contact to the newcomer family. If
they did not come with refugee status (i.e. on an employment visa or
other), then HIAS is unlikely to know about them. Another tack to take is
if you know what city they emigrated to, you can then telephone the local
Jewish Family Service (JFS) office (which is usually the local HIAS
affiliate) and ask them to relay the request for contact to the family. If
they immigrated to a small city or rural area without a JFS, then the
closest synaguge is the best bet. Good Luck

Re: WERTHEIMER #unitedkingdom

Gunther Steinberg <Gunther-Steinberg-PV@...>
 

Gerard Marx asked about Wertheimer and a variant spelling, which was
answered very nicely by Judith Romney Wegner.

Indeed, the town of origin was frequently used as a last name when surname
adoption became obligatory at the turn or the 18th century (Austria earlier
than Germany and France).

If you look in Egmar Ruppert's data base on Jews >from Northern Germany, you
would find that there are five WERTHEIMER families listed >from the
following towns:
Peine, Wulfelade, Hannover, Heimarshausen and Hofgeismar, all starting in
1700 or 1770.
There is one WERTHEIM >from Breidenbach).

But the real origin may still have been WERTHEIM.
By example, one branch of the descendants of Simon >from Kassel (first
mentioned in 1549) took the name of the town where they had lived since
the early 1600s: WARBURG.

eastern european maps and locating shtetls #general

Phyllis Kramer <phylliskramer1@...>
 

R Feldman has posted a common question
"Is there any place I can find a more general overview of Eastern Europe
with countries, regions and provinces for different periods of time,
especially if they are in maps."

I have found the local librarian very helpful; I've seen an historical
atlas which showed Eastern Europe as the borders changed. I actually
xeroxed about 6 maps >from an atlas showing Eastern Europe in the
16th/17th/18/19th and 20th centuries.....I found this to be very helpful.

At both annual Jewish Genealogy seminars, I have heard good lectures on
this very topic......it confuses many of us.

I have also had luck in searching out Jewish shtetls, by using the Family
finder.......I put in the shtetl name, "Any Country", and use the Soundex
button.........often I can locate a common Jewish shtetl by the sheer
numbers of researchers interested in that town.....then of course I must
corroborate the potential shtetl by looking at mapquest, checking the
nearest city etc.

And lastly, don't forget the Jewishgen Info Files.....the one on Russia is
particularly helpful.......I believe Warren Blatt wrote it. To send for
the index of info files......send a blank email message to:
index@mail.jewishgen.org

good luck

Dryszczow [spell Dree shch uff] is correct, located SE >from Chelm, close to

Be sure you have the right Dryszczow --there are two other Dryszczows in
modern Ukraine that were formerly in Poland. Both are southeast of
Lviv, in former Berezany/Brzezany county (that Dryszczow had 95 Jews out of
a population of 960 before the war), and in Pidjahci/Podhajce county
(that one had 30 Jews out of a population of 1420 before the war). The
