Vabalninkas (Abolnik) families - ATLAS; SANDLER; SHLUZITEL #general

Rica Goldberg
 

Dear Genners

Searching the the town of Vabalninkas on the JewishGen Family finder in the
year 2000 I see that there was a Daniel Kirschner (#2029) looking for the
surname SANDLER. I would appreciate it if he would contact me. Motte SANDLER
married Etta SHULZICHEL or SHLUZITEL and came and settled in Manchester, UK
prior to 1898.

Also, if there is anyone else searching the family ATLAS >from either Birzai
or Vabalninkas I would like to hear >from them. Two sisters of my husbands
grandfather Isaac SHULZICHEL or SHLUZITEL married two ATLAS brothers in
Lithuania. One couple went direct to Cape Town, South Africa and the other
couple first came to England for a few years and then in 1916 went to Cape Town.

This relative in Idaho was >from Vabalninkas in Lithuania and the surname had

An old photo album shows my great-grandmother Golda Feyga (nee FEINBERG)
LANDSMAN with someone labeled 'aunt ROSENBLATT.'

While looking for relatives who might have been named after Goldie's
father Eliyahu, I found 3 Elihu FEINBERG, one of whom also lived in
Massachusetts (b.1906) and whose father was Samuel FEINBERG.

A search of emigration records for "FEINBERG" + keyword "ROSENBLATT"
came up with a 1907 arrival in Philadelphia for Samuel FEINBERG, age 19,
going to Boston, >from town Rakerchk(?) travelling with Abram ROSENBLATT,
age 68, going to Essex St, New York (son Max?)

Re: Missing Names on Manifests - Really? #general

david rubin <dovrubin1@...>
 

Hello,

We lost track of all these comments about missing names. However,
we did research many of these missing names that were listed over
the past month. We found three positive matches. And, several other
plausible matches, that could not be confirmed without more information
in the manifest, or because the poster would not except a change in the
oral family history. And of course, we are still researching the other
names, since data is continually being added and corrected within the
many immigration data bases.

Our experience has been that there is less of a chance of a missing
name, than there is of a transcription error. So possibly in the future
instead of continually using this new phase, posters to this forum could
go back to the norm of just listing individuals they are unable locate
immigration data for, instead of saying they are missing.

Finally, thank you Marian Smith for clearing up so many myths.

Sincerely,
David Rubin and Mrs. Rubin

Re: Searching: SALISBURY surname #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

I had assumed, correctly as it turned out, that it was *the* new 1911
census, Chris Gould was referring to in his SALISBURY name-change query.
Chris, a new genner, did not actually identify the census or his country
of origin.

Following my previous posting, suggesting that the name may have been
SALZBERG, I researched further. The main trouble with the 1911 census is
that one can only go so far without paying, but I am pretty sure I have
pinned down another very credible Salisbury name-change which I would never
have thought of.

In the 1911 census, you can see a Barnet and Sam SALISBURY in St George in
the East. In the 1901 census, I found them {and I think they are the same
boys - but to confirm this I would have to pay to see the transcript} as
Barnet and Samuel SLABORUSKY. The parents and the older siblings were born
in Russia. The two younger boys were born in London. Now that is a name I
have never come across - perhaps others will tell us about it. I have
found soundex equivalents on jri-pl, but no other mention of the name.
Moreover I cannot find the boys' parents in the 1911 census.

This just goes to show that the simplest name change may not be the one
we are looking for, as other genners know only too well, and that one has
to spend some money to do this research properly with the new 1911 census.
Unfortunately, that is as far as I can go ...

Re: New Brunswick, NJ #general

Vivian Kahn <viviankahn@...>
 

New Brunswick has one of the largest and oldest Hungarian communities
in the country. According to one source, the Hungarian population
peaked at 6500 between the wars. That's probably why my Hungarian-
born aunt and uncle Jeno Ferber and Margit Neumann decided to buy a
chicken farm in Deans, just south of New Brunswick in the 1940's.
When we went to visit them my father would often make a stop at the
Hungarian delicatessen in New Brunswick to buy sausage.

Somerset Street is the heart of the historic Hungarian neighborhood.
New Brunswick is also the home of the American Hungarian Foundation,
which includes an archive, a library, and its own collection of
Hungarian-American art. The Museum's Hungarian Heritage Center on
Somerset Street has hosted a variety of exhibitions including on the
Hungarian Jewish Community," arranged in cooperation with the Jewish
Historical Society of Central Jersey. More recent exhibitions include:
"Enchanting Modern: Ilonka Karasz, 1896 - 1981", "Calm Between the
Storms: Istvan Szonyi", Hungarian Art Between the World Wars, Works
>from the Salgo Trust for Education"," Garden, Woodlands and the Wide
World Beyond: Evelyn Domjan - Paintings and Prints", "Balazs Szabo:
Fantastic Realist - A Retrospective of Paintings and Works on
Paper"," Hope, Despair, and Triumph: Remembering the 50th Anniversary
of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution in Art and the Photos of Erich
Lessing."

New Brunswick has a Hungarian School, Hungarian American Athletic
Club, folk dance groups, and hosts an annual Hungarian festival on the
first Saturday in June.

>from November 1956 to June 1957, nearby Camp Kilmer became the
processing center and temporary home for refugees after the 1956
uprising. My aunt worked there as a volunteer.

Bridging Three Worlds, Robert Perlman's book on the history of
Hungarian Jews in America, mentions ties between New Brunswick and
communities in Zemplen, Ung, and Szatmar.

When we went to visit them my father would often make a stop at the
Hungarian delicatessen in New Brunswick to buy sausage.

Somerset Street is the heart of the historic Hungarian neighborhood.
New Brunswick is also the home of the American Hungarian Foundation,
which includes an archive, a library, and its own collection of
Hungarian-American art. The Museum's Hungarian Heritage Center on
Somerset Street has hosted a variety of exhibitions including on the
Hungarian Jewish Community," arranged in cooperation with the Jewish
Historical Society of Central Jersey. More recent exhibitions include:
"Enchanting Modern: Ilonka Karasz, 1896 - 1981", "Calm Between the
Storms: Istvan Szonyi", Hungarian Art Between the World Wars, Works
>from the Salgo Trust for Education"," Garden, Woodlands and the Wide
World Beyond: Evelyn Domjan - Paintings and Prints", "Balazs Szabo:
Fantastic Realist - A Retrospective of Paintings and Works on
Paper"," Hope, Despair, and Triumph: Remembering the 50th Anniversary
of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution in Art and the Photos of Erich
Lessing."

New Brunswick has a Hungarian School, Hungarian American Athletic
Club, folk dance groups, and hosts an annual Hungarian festival on the
first Saturday in June.

>from November 1956 to June 1957, nearby Camp Kilmer became the
processing center and temporary home for refugees after the 1956
uprising. My aunt worked there as a volunteer.

Bridging Three Worlds, Robert Perlman's book on the history of
Hungarian Jews in America, mentions ties between New Brunswick and
communities in Zemplen, Ung, and Szatmar.

New Brunswick, New Jersey apparently was an enclave for Jews
from the Transcarpathian Rus. Has anyone done any research on the
New Brunswick or can point me to particular document collections?

Thanks,
