Unfortunately, Temple Street Synagogue was built over when Victoria Street was
built to connect Bristol with the new station at Temple Meads.

I know of no records earlier than those of the Park Row synagogue, in the 1850's.
These include the burial of a Sarah BALLON buried 17 Jan 1849 in the Jewish
community Burial Ground at St Phillips. She died on 14 January 1849, and her
Hebrew name is given as Sarah bat Avraham Avinu (Sarah, daughter of Abraham our father), which is the term usually used for a convert.

Hidden Children in France - found after the Holocaust

I am looking for people that were hidden children in France during the
Holocaust and were found after the war by an English woman named Evelyn
FREEDMAN (now Evelyn CHENKIN) and returned to their family or to Jewish
organisations.

Between 1946-48 Evelyn, who was working at the London Beth Din, was sent
from England to France to find and retrieve Jewish hidden children. These
children, like many other Jewish children, had been placed in convents or
with Catholic families for safekeeping during World War Two. Some however,
were now being refused return to their family or to the Jewish organisations
that had placed them there.

Some of the names of people that I am looking for are:

Henri GABES

Lily SAMUELS (possibly now lives in Australia)

Bernard KOHN

I have been documenting Evelyn's story for some years now. Her book,
"Gathering the Remnants" details her journey in France over those two years.
If anyone has any leads as to where these people are now or knows of a
similar story of someone who was a hidden child in France and was discovered
after the war by an English woman, please contact me. There were 60 children
on Evelyn's list.

Many thanks,

Philpot Street Synagogue #unitedkingdom

Myra & Peter Waddell <mpwaddell@...>
 

I have been told that my maternal grandparents - Henoch/Hyman/Henry and
Ester Osner/Ouzner were members of one of the Philpot Street Synagogues
at the beginning of the 20th century. They were Sephardic Jews. I was
wondering whether there is such a thing as a list of the membership of
either or both at that time and, if so, what other information might be
with the names. My grandpa also had two brothers, Yossel/Joseph
(married to Sarah) and Yankel/Jacob married to Reyzla (this latter
couple is believed to have changed their name to Posner. They also
lived nearby and might have attended the same Shul. Is there anyone who
might have access to such a list? Myra Waddell (Adelaide, South Australia)

Finding death certificate in NJ #general

Mjn519@...
 

How does one find someone who may have died in New Jersey?

Received word >from NY Dept of Health this week that they have no record of
my gggrandfather's death in all of New York. So now I am looking at nearby
states, starting with New Jersey first.

I only have his name and time frame of years (1900-1907). Looking online,
the New Jersey Dept of Health and Senior Services requires city or county of
death, also the year. I have no idea. I would like to look at the whole
state (like they do in New York).

Is there a way to get around having to provide the above information but
just the name and time frame?

Thank you.

I am seeking Albert SIEGEL or information about him. This is a common name,
but the person I am looking for was listed in the 1954 obituary of Juanita
PIERS SIMMONS as a cousin living in Miami, Florida. I believe his mother's
maiden name was Anna KORN SIEGEL. Please respond privately. Thank you.

Eliyahu FEINBERG from Vilna (Boston, New Haven, Bronx) #general

MandJMeyers <mandjmeyers@...>
 

My great-grandmother Feiga (nee FINBERG) LANDSMAN came >from the Vilna area,
and possibly Podberezhe (Paberze) before that. When her husband Abram
died, she emigrated to Boston to be with her children. So far, I have
not found any of her FINBERG relatives.

Feiga's father was Eliyahu FINBERG and a census search shows only 3
Elihu FEINBERG in the country, so one (or more) of those may be related.

Elihu Feinberg #1:
1930 census in New Haven, CT, parents Samuel and Sadie, siblings Alfred,
Jack and Belle, father born in Lithuania, Elihu was 11 in1930 and born in CT.

Elihu Feinberg #2:
1930 census in the Bronx, NY, parents Michael and Emma, siblings Rose,
Minerva and Dorothy, father born in Lituania, Elihu was 23 in 1930 and
born in NY. 1920 census in the Bronx shows other children though hard
to read (Julia and 2 others)

Elihu Feinberg #3:
1930 census in the Dorchester section of Boston, MA, wife Ida, children
David and Pauline, Elihu was 32 in 1930 and was born in NY.

Help with Possible Passport Number #general

Michael Knox <deputydog232@...>
 

I would like to extend my sincere appreciation and thanks to all
the "JewishGenners" who responded to my request for assistance with
attempting to determine what the information on a passenger manifest
from 1932 "really" meant.
The responses were thoughtful and extremely informative. I plan on
using them to map out my next avenue of investigation in this wonderful
hobby called Genealogy!!

I have participated in JewishGen almost since it began. This venue
of collective reasoning and thinking is truly awesome and I continue
to marvel at it's value and the co-operative spirit of the participants.

Again......thanks for all the assistance!

"missing names in manifests" #general

Sylvia Furshman Nusinov
 

Irwin, hello.
I'm sorry, but your assumption re cabin class passenger names
missing >from manifests is another genealogical myth which has
joined the myth of "names changed at Ellis Island". The topic
was completely covered on the JewishGen Discussion Group in
December and January. For a full explanation, please click on
www.mariansmith.com

You can also refer to the JewishGen Discussion Group Archives for
the "thread" relating to the subject. Good luck in your research!

Looking for Ester nee KOENIGSBUCH in the USA 1926 #galicia

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Siggers,

I need a lucky strike. I recently received a copy of the 1926
French naturalization application of the brother of my maternal
ggrandmother, Aron KOENIGSBUCH. In his application he had to name
his siblings, their ages and the place of their residence. One of
the siblings he mentioned was Ester whose age he quoted 62 (I know
from the LDS documents that she was actually born in 1866 in
Brzesko nearby Krakow ). The new detail which he disclosed is that
she lived in "America". I presume that she was married.

I looked at EIDB for any Ester born in Krakow or Brzesko bertween
1864-6 and came only with one possibility of Ester Ataslander
(Atteslander) who came with 2 boys in 1906. I understand >from a
family tree in ancestry.com that her maiden name was Landau. I am
trying to contact the person who prepared the family tree and also
some other ATTESLANDERs in the USA and Canada in order to verify
whether Landau is based on solid documentation or some logical
deduction or lore.If this path is blocked I am stuck with Ester
XXXXX born in 1864/6 who reached the USA but not via Ellis Island
or not in the years covered by the EIDB.

Any suggestions how to continue excluding the ATTESLANDER route.

Thanks.

Google Books - Jahrbuch für jüdische Geschichte und Literatur 1906 #poland

Geoff Kaiser <geoff.kaiser@...>
 

Fellow researchers,

I recently did a GoogleBook search using the terms "Unruhstadt and Jewish".
Unruhstadt is small town, now Kargowa in Poland where many of my ancestors
originated.

One of the results was "Jahrbuch für jüdische Geschichte und Literatur
1906". When I did a search within this book for "Josef Kaiser", my great
grandfather, it came up with two hits - supposedly on pages 20 and 34.
My problem is that this book is written in German and I can not locate the
reference to Josef Kaiser on those pages.

Perhaps someone that is fluent in german can have a look for me and help
me with this problem.
The following link will take you to the book.
