Emigration from Libau to Palestine #general

K.& L. Bertelsen <klb@...>
 

Recently while rereading the Libau Yizkor Book - *A Town named Libau*,
which is available via the Latviasig home page, I found a reference which I
thought might be of interest to people trying to work out how their
ancestors got >from Place A to Place B at any given time.

The extract was called *The 1934 Odyssey to the Land of Israel* by Jack
YAKOBI. He discussed the costs and route he and his friends took by train
from Libau to Riga, then to Warsaw and on to Bucharest to Constanza, and
from there by ship to Constantinople, and then >from there by train to
Beirut, >from where they were smuggled across the border into Palestine.

What is POSNANTECK? #general

Miriam Deitcher <deitcher@...>
 

In his writings, my great-uncle (Yankel SZMULEWICZ) refers to his cousin
POSNANTECK in Hamburg. POSNANTECK was in the shoe business in Hamburg, and
later went to Argentina. His father-in-law was Shlome BIRENZWEIG (who was
my ggrandmother's first cousin.) My question for the group is: What sort
of name is POSNANTECK? Is it a first name, or a last name? Where does it
come from?

Thanks,

Searching: GOODMAN #general

KJermaine@...
 

We are looking for descendents of Rachel Pearlman married to Louis Goodman.
Louis was born in l850 and immigrated to New York. Rachel was born in l855
and came to New York City when she was 14 year old (l864). They may have
had 10 children. Some of their names were Rebecca, Lillie, Moses or
Morris, and Lester. Louis died around l895 to l897. One of their children
went by the name of Beatrice and we believe she may have been Rebecca.
Rebecca was born around l892 or l893. Beatrice married William Kavanov
around l915 to l919 and they had one child named Elaine. We are looking
for Elaine Kavanov/Katkin/Losow or possibly another name. She was born on
December 16, l920 and after being discharged >from the army disappeared
around l946. She was living in New York at that time and may have gone to
California. We are trying to find out what happened to her and any other
information about any other Goodman family members. Beatrice's death in
l934 caused the family to lose track of the Goodman branch and we would
like to reconnect with them. Rachel or "Ray" Goodman as she was called,
lived on Attorney Street in the very early 1900's as indicated by the l900
census. If you know anything about this Goodman branch, please let us know
at k.jermaine@... If anyone has access to the New York State Census
after l920 and is willing to track this particular family, I would greatly
appreciate it.
Thanks

Searching: The Witch from Volhynia #general

Arnie Levine <arnie@...>
 

My father used to call my grandmother a witch because people used to
come to her to be cured of their ailments: Incarnations, Herbs,
Poultice, etc. Her name was Sarah CZUSIK nee SCHECTMAN and became Sarah
RICH when she came to Chicago in 1913. Most of her European adult life
was spent in Malin and Ksaverov (currently the Ukraine). Her mothers
name we think was Nachumah or Naomi nee HORWITZ we think from
Sarnoviche. Sarah had 7 children that lived: Rosa (Rose), Channa
(Anna), Reuben (changed to Harry), Schmuel (Sam-Changed to Jack), Elia
(changed to Al) and lastly born in Chicago, Riva (Evalyne) they all had
last name of RICH. Any knowledge or information pertaining to this
branch of my family please contact me.

Thank you.

Hello! > Why a husband will adopt his wife maiden name?
In my family's case, my paternal grandfather (surname SPECTOR) took his
future mother-in-law's maiden name as a way to ensure his entry into
Canada in 1927. He needed to be sponsored by a relative so he chose to
portray himself as his future mother-in-law's youngest brother. After
he entered Canada he revised it slightly (VOLTMAN to WALTMAN) and
married my grandmother!

Re: Searching: KATZ Brooklyn Naturalization Records #general

AvrmGeller <avrmgeller@...>
 

I suggest you determine the year of naturalization by locating the
person(s) in the 1920 and/or 1910 Federal census which indicates the year
naturalized. The address of the person(s) when naturalized is also useful-
->from either a Federal or NY State census year or the City Directory for
that year. I think you would need this since Katz is such a common name.
I have also tried to find Brooklyn naturalizations (so far, to no avail);
the naturalizations are located in a basement room of the County Clerk's
Office, State Supreme Court, 360 Adams St, Brooklyn 11201 (718-643-5894).
There are bound index books grouped by year and then within the books
alphabetized by surname. The day I went there the index volume I needed
(1912) was missing ("in the bindery") and I will need to return. It is
also possible that the naturalization was done in a U.S. District Court, in
which case the indices can be searched at a U.S. National Archives or
Mormon Family History Center location. I would imagine that there are so
many Katz's in Brooklyn in any given year, even many with the same given
name, and that you would need an address etc. to pin down the right one.
I suggest you nail down all the facts you can and then give them a call. I
believe the cost for a search is $5.00.
