Searching SHEINBERG from Lipno, Poland #general

Frieda Libaw <fbl2@...>
 

I have a 29 page typescript written in Yiddish by Moishe SCHEINBERG
titled, "Memories of Lipno" which I believe were meant to be a
contribution to a planned Yizkor book on Lipno, Poland. I have
completed an English translation (except for a few Hebrew words and
phrasesI

In this memoir it is clear that I am a relative of Moishe SHEINBERG.
His grandmother was my mother's mother's sister. My mother's mother was
Rifka GOLDSTEIN, nee LACHS or LACHS, married to Joel-Wolf GOLDSTEIN, and
the daughter of Moishe LACHS, for whom the author of this memoir was
named.

If any of this strikes a chord with any jewishgenner out there, please
contact me.

Incidentally, I've been in touch with the jewishgen Manager of Yizkor
book translations and will get the copy out to anyone interested as soon
as possible - but it may take a while.

Thanks in advance. Frieda Libaw

Re: First Class Passenger Immigrant Question #general

When I visited Ellis Island several years ago, I learned that first and second
class passengers were dropped off in Manhattan before ships left the others
at Ellis Island. Some who were rejected at Ellis Island returned home and
saved up enough money for a second class fare so they could return and avoid
the scrutiny at Ellis Island.

Anybody knows why? (tunkel=toonkel=tounkel) #latvia

The entire immigration >from the Russian Empire in 1880-1910 years counted
about 2 million people. It was almost pure Jewish immigration - more then
80% immigrant each year were Jews. Before 1880 this percent was around
10%, after 1910 percent fall to 30...50%. That time Russian Empire
included Poland and Finland.

Need Help with Research in Pyetrykau, Belarus #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>
 

I have finally learned of the birthplace of my father's mother. She was
Basja FRIEDMAN, and she was born in Pyetrykau which is now in Belarus.

She arrived in the Port of NYC on October 28, 1912, aboard the SS Czar,
alone. And went to live with "landtsmen" in Brooklyn, NY.

She left her parents, and one brother (that we know of) behind in
Pyetrykau. Her parents were: Aaron FRIEDMAN (a riverboat captain) and
Faga SCHNIEDERMAN. Her brother was David FRIEDMAN. Since my pgm could
not read or write, she had no contact with her family in Pyetrykau. She
also kept nothing of an informative nature about her past, except for a
photograph of her mother and father.

My father has always hoped that perhaps someone >from the family in
Russia may have survived and lived to have descendants. Unfortunately,
with FRIEDMAN being such a common name, I have not been able to get any
leads at all on what may have happened to the family.

Is there anyone reading this post who knows of anyone >from the town of
Pyetrykau or anything about the town (I already know where it is located
-- I need more information)?

I hope someone can help me with this one.

Thanks,
(Mrs.) Ricki Randall Zunk

re Steamship Arrival Dates #general

Carol Skydell <skydell@...>
 

Cindy asks:

.... does anyone know which would be more accurate, the INS index cards or
Cimorelli?

Cimorelli uses Morton Allan Directory of European Passenger Ship Arrivals
to create it's database. Morton Allan is known to be off in some cases,
and by as much as a week. Go with what the INS provided, it's probably a
safer bet.

Dear Colleagues,

A full report on the Yad Vashem project to computerize all of its lists
of names into a single database starts on page 4 of most current issue of
AVOTAYNU [Vol. XIV, No. 4, Winter 1998].

A more detailed listing of its genealogically valuable holdings may be
ofund in the book Jewish Genealogical Research in Israel by Sallyann Sack
and the Israel Genealogical Society (Avotaynu, 1995).

The most recent report I have had >from Yaacov Lozowick is a reprint of a
recent Associated Press item saying that Yad Vashem has forwarded one
million computerized names to the Volker Commission which is
investigating the unpaid Swiss bank account.

Re: Reading gravestones #general

Rica Goldberg
 

Dear Genners

Today, I have spent a few hours in an old cemetery in a suburb of Manchester
looking for, and finding, the gravestones of my maternal great-grandparents.
My grandmother was one of their 9 children all born in Europe. 8 came to
Manchester including, strangely enough, the five children of one of their sons
who was murdered in Europe.

On my great-grandfathers tombstone it was written that he was Iddle (Adokph)
Kaminsky the son of Nachamed (Nun, Chess, Mem, Yud, Daled). I am not familiar
with this name. Is anyone else?

His wife was the daygther of Moisha and her name was Mirat Rifka. I have
never heard of the name Mirat. I know there are many of you who understand
the origins of these names and I would like to hear more on Nachamed and
Mirat. Many thanks in anticipation.
