Cousins,

I know that my ggrandfather (arrival 1901 or 1902) was alive and living with a
Bloom family in the Bronx, NY according to the 1910 census. He does not appear in
the 1920 census. I have been told by Ancestry.com to search the 1915 NY census to
try for more information. ( I believe he would have been in his 60's then and
possibly older. His wife died earlier and her name was Hanna Reiter Marcus
Makowitz. I do not not know where either is buried nor what ever happened to
them. Their children were living in the US but no one alive today seems to even
know that they lived in the US. Josep Solomon lived in NY while most of the family
lived in the South.

I would greatly appreciate if someone would search the 1915 NY census for me.

Thank you.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Family SJIBUL in Copenhagen #general

Clive Budlender <clivebud@...>
 

Can someone please point me in the right direction for research in Denmark. I have
looked at the Denmark SIG website, but did not find the name SJIBUL on their
database. I am trying to help my cousin find information on his mother. The
information I have is as follows:

His mother, Ida , was born in Copenhagen 24 October 1912 to Sara (either born
Peretz, or daughter of Peretz) and Israel SJIBUL. Ida had 2 known siblings,
Rebecca and Jack.

In 1928, Sara SJIBUL was living at Borgergade11, 1Sd Kopenhagen. This is taken
from a postcard that she sent, and my reading of the address may not be entirely
accurate as it was somewhat difficult to read! Around 1928 Sara immigrated to
South Africa with Ida, Jack and Rebecca.

We are trying to ascertain what happened to Ida's father Israel. If he had died by
this time, where is he buried? Did Sara or Israel have siblings in Denmark?
We'd like to know if Sara and Israel were married in Denmark.

My cousin has in his possession what appears to be his mother's Bat-Mitzvah
certificate >from the Synagogue in Copenhagen (1927) although she would have been
older than 12 years old.

Any suggestions on how to proceed would be gratefully received.

Scandinavia SIG #Scandinavia Finnish sailor #scandinavia

Snillop47@...
 

I am interested in Jewish men and women who were killed or died on
service with the British armed forces in the First World War,
including those in the merchant navy. I am seeking information
about a sailor who drowned on 7 May 1915 when the SS Lusitania was
sunk off Ireland by a German submarine. This was the first episode
in WWI of unrestricted warfare by German submarines.

The sailor was Fireman A. A. STERNBERG. All I know abut him is that
he was aged 35 and had been born in Finland. He is commemorated on
the Tower Hill Memorial in London which lists the anmes of all
those who died while in the merchant navy .

My question is: is it likely that he was a Jew? I am merely going
by his name, but I wonder if anyone has some information about him.

Thank you very much.

The birth, marriage and deaths registers of Paris 1860-1902 are on line for
about 6 months at the following address :
http://canadp-archivesenligne.paris.fr/archives_etat_civil/index.php
You'll find there the original records that are printable.

First of all you have to search in the tables decennales what are lists of
BMD names in chronologic order, which indicate if they contain the record
you're looking for.

You also have to know the Paris district "arrondissement". If you don't
know it, you have to search in the 20 districts. You may try first the 1, 2,
4, 8, 9, 10, 11st where most of the Jewish people used to live at that
time.

Good luck in your search

"Levy Hart & Jonas Solomons - England To New York 1750's

I am attempting to uncover the origins of Levy Hart and/or Jonas Solomons.
Both born c. 1730. Their parents, siblings, place of birth etc (anything).
Published data suggests they immigrated >from England c. 1735, however, it
appears more likely that they arrived together in New York c. 1755. They
applied for naturalization in 1756 as Jewish New York Colony merchants. They
were said to be cousins and were inseparable >from 1756 through 1775. (They
even married sisters). Hart and Solomon did business with the more well
known Jewish merchants in NYC in the 1750's and 1760's, like Uriah
Hendricks, Samuel Judah, Benjamin S. Judah, Judah and Rebecca Hays, and
Samuel Levy. I cant tell if these were strictly business dealings, or
indications of possible family ties. Neither Hart nor Solomon are listed in
"First American Jewish Families". Due to their being naturalized, it is
presumed they were both German or Dutch, but immigrated >from England.

Does anyone have a record of either a Levy Hart or a Jonas Solomon, in
either England or the continent prior to 1756?"

I don't see on your summary that anybody suggested a phone call to YIVO and
possibly a visit if they have any information on the group. They are basically the
organization that receives the documents on defunct burial organizations.

I am summarizing here some of the suggestions I received when I asked about a
burial society listed by Montefiore Cemetery in NY called "Cong. Chesed Le
Abraham An. Tris Vacholel."... an index of Synagogues in the five Boroughs...
at: http://www.jgsny.org/landsmanshaft/synagogues.htm#Brooklyn...Also suggested
was a book called "Jewish Communal Register" which is online at Google Books
...Another suggestion was a visit to the cemetery to look at the gate for this
society's plot to see what could be learned there and a visit to the cemetery
office to see what information they might have about it.
It was also suggested that I try the various words in the name of the society in
case any of them might be the name of a town in Europe...NY State Tax Dept.
I assume this would be because Burial Societies' records are found there.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Meaning of "tam" on tombstones #general

S. Cohen <scohen@...>
 

In reviewing translations of tombstones on Viewmate, I have come to realize that
the words "tam" and "tamim" are often not translated correctly - that the meaning
of these words is being misunderstood.

The words "tam" or "tamim" on a tombstone do not translate to "simple." Here are
other meanings for the words "tam" and "tamim" as per the Hebrew - English
dictionary: pious, sincere, whole, perfect, integrity, completeness.

Our forefather Yaakov, the Biblical Jacob, is called "tam." "Tam" or "tamim" on a
tombstone indicates that the person was righteous. I hope this will be helpful in
understanding the correct meaning of the words "tam" and "tamim" on tombstones.

As usual, this list is wonderful!

I am summarizing here some of the suggestions I received when I asked about a
burial society listed by Montefiore Cemetery in NY called "Cong. Chesed Le Abraham
An. Tris Vacholel."

I think some of you may also be interested in these responses.

The first response I received was about an index of Synagogues in the five Boroughs
created in 1939 as a WPA project. This index can be found
at: http://www.jgsny.org/landsmanshaft/synagogues.htm#Brooklyn . (It says Brooklyn
but all the Boroughs are there). At this site, I found what I think may be the one
I need: "Chesed L'Avraham Anshei Trisk." The original forms filled out by each
Synagogue are on microfilm at the NY City Muni Archives. I will check this one
when I have an opportunity to go there.

Also suggested was a book called "Jewish Communal Register" which is online at
Google Books and is dated 1917. I have not had a chance to look for this shul yet,
but the book itself is a fascinating picture of the early 20th-Century Jewish
community.

Another suggestion was a visit to the cemetery to look at the gate for this
society's plot to see what could be learned there and a visit to the cemetery
office to see what information they might have about it.

It was also suggested that I try the various words in the name of the society in
case any of them might be the name of a town in Europe. (In this case, I was
already pretty sure that wouldn't be so because I thought the abbreviation at the
beginning of the name stood for "Congregation" and because I already knew that the
two towns associated with my great-grandmother both have plots at Montefiore and
knew she wasn't buried in either of them.

Another suggested that I check with the NY State Tax Dept. I assume this would be
because Burial Societies' records are found there.

I hope others will be able to use these suggestions.

I am new to this digest. I have determined that my maternal side came
from Kovna between 1890-1900. The surname is Hoffman and I know that a
great-uncle named Lazer Hoffman owned property there in the late 1890's
before he emigrated. He had the title Reverend Lazer Hoffman and his
father's name was Aron Tzvi.

Any ideas on how I can get more information?

Thanks.
