Looking for info on Zitomer Verein of Chicago #general

Norman Feldman <felvelnic@...>
 

Hi:

Does anyone have any information on the Zitomer Verein of Chicago? I
understand it's now out of existence and I'm looking for access to their
records for 1928,particularly their membership records and those for
burials in the Zitomer section of the old Waldheim Cemetery.

I'd be very appreciative of any information.

Happy New Year to all.

New York City Marriage Records #general

AvrmGeller <avrmgeller@...>
 

Several family members were married in Manhattan or Brooklyn between 1890 and
1907 and I have been unable to locate their marriage records in the
bride/groom/marriage indices or files located at the Old Records Division at
the NYC Municipal Archives, even though I know, in some instances, the wedding
date. I presume that their marriages were performed at a synagogue but somehow
the civil records were either not completed or are missing >from the record.
What were the procedures at the time for marriage licensing? Was it
commonplace for a religious ceremony to stand alone without a civil component?
Would there be any other exisiting sources for marriage records (such as
synagogue records) and how would one go about searching for them?

Re: likely port of entry for Iowa? #general

Sam Eneman <enemansj@...>
 

Linda Workman Schulein asked:

My ggm Feygie Reva WACHMAN (nee KRAMER) emigrated >from Laizuva, Lithuania,
to Pella, Iowa, to join her sister there. I have checked census and city
directories but never found any trace of Jewish families in Pella c. 1900.
What would have been the likely port of entry for Iowa? They then moved to
Montreal.
It's possible that your ggm may have entered through Galveston TX. There
was an effort in the early 20th century to bypass NYC and send new
immigrants to the Middle West. The "Galveston Plan", as it was called,
existed for a few years until the onset of WWI, I believe.

TRISTER and ALKALAI? #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

From: "Laurence Trister" <ltrister@...>
I have just been told that my family name of Trister stems in some way from
the names Alkallay/Alkalai.
The early geographical links would be Botasani in Romania and Trieste in
Italy
This cryptic comment "I have just been told ...." intrigued me: I'd
love to know EXACTLY how your informant connected a Yiddish/Ashkenazic
surname like TRISTER to an Arabic/Sephardic name like ALKALAI. Can you
tell us more about this?

The surname "TRISTER" appears to mean simply "Triester" ("person from
Trieste" -- where Jews lived >from the middle ages on). And the Enc. Jud.
article on Trieste says those Jews came >from Germany -- which certainly
does not suggest Sephardic origin. So, I'm left wondeirng how you got
from here to there!

Re: Kindertransport Association #general

Peter Sinclair <peter@...>
 

Apropos the comments made by Judith Romney Wegner below and actions
taken by the British Government at that time, it must be said that the
latter was cajoled into doing something by a relatively small group of
determined, dedicated and prominent Anglo-Jewish men and women who
left no stone unturned to secure aid and assistance of every sort, at
a time when Britain stood alone in the world against the Nazi terror .
A fully documented and excellent book on this subject under the title
"Men of Vision" (Anglo-Jewry's aid to victims of the Nazi Regime
1933-1945), author Amy Zahl Gottlieb, published by Weidenfeld and
Nicolson, The Orion Publishing Group Ltd., ISBN 0 297 84230 7 has to
be compulsory reading.
