NONMUS - Frankfort>London>Bristol-18thC #unitedkingdom

Gloria <gloria@...>
 

Hi,

I would be grateful for any assistance with finding out more about my
forebear Hannah NONMUS (ca 1736? - ca 1806?), particularly her maiden name
and family circumstances in Frankfort, Germany.

Hannah wrote a booklet detailing her conversion >from Judaism to Wesleyanism
at the Calvinistic-Methodist Tabernacle in Penn Street, Bristol on 8 October
1775.

She described herself as a Jewess >from Frankfort (sic), and explains that
she met her husband Jacob NONMUS <being a Doctor in the English army>. She
followed him to England where they married at the Synagogue, Dukes Place,
London (ca 1755-1758), and lived near Bishopsgate-Street for almost 16
years.

Next the family moved to Bristol, and the author relates how she converted
after the birth of 12 children. The IGI shows her christening and those of
three of her children on 8 Oct 1775 at the Calvinistic-Methodist Tabernacle,
Bristol. The children were: Isaac (1769-), Abraham (1771-), and Sarah
(1773-1785). Sarah died in Bristol in 1785.

Hannah writes that her husband Jacob later left her, <being forced to go to
sea as a doctor>. The IGI features a Jacob NONMUS as a party to two
marriages in January 1784 In Boston, Massachusetts - so perhaps this is him.


Thanks in anticipation,

Gloria Grant (nee Nonmus) =AD Brisbane, Australia

NOAH COHEN #unitedkingdom

GRAHAM LEWIS
 

Happy Succot

The 1901 UK census shows my gg gps

NOAH COHEN and DORA COHEN at 59 Wentworth Street, Whitechapel, London

and their 2 sons ISRAEL COHEN AND SIMON COHEN. They also had a 3rd son
JOSEPH COHEN (my ggf) who is listed separately.

The census gives Noah's age as 61.

Dora died in 1906 aged 58. Her death certificate says "Wife of Noah Ammiel
COHEN, a provision merchant"

I'm looking for a record of Noah COHEN's death - I can't locate it in the
BMD records or cemetery records.

Can anyone offer any suggestions please ?

Many thanks

More information available in Kosciusko's records #lithuania

irene jalowayski
 

There is all kinds of information beyond typical birth, marriage and
death records archived in the main archives in Vilnius. We found the
original books listing the students and faculty >from the Univ. of Vilnius
uprising in 1831 with lists >from the trial with names of participants,
crimes, town they were from, sentences etc. There was a copy also at the
Kaunas archives and another at the Military Museum in Kaunas.

I saw some of Kosciusko's records at the Vilnius archives in June, 2006
and his diploma >from the Univ. of Vilnius at the University Library when
we were researching our family there this summer. Since there seemed to
be information about the Jewish regiments in the Lithunian Cavalry there
should be a record of the members. The most helpful people we found were
at the military museum in Kaunas. I will look through my notes to get the
name of the gentleman who helped us there and send it along on this site.

Re: Dress code for Women #lithuania

water wind & stars <shiralunacy@...>
 

This is a fascinating question and I look forward to the replies, but
let's begin by reminding ourselves that these were BLACK & WHITE
photographs, and clothing may have been of colors other than dark
blue and black. Also availability of dyes is an issue to consider too.
I think the most reliable source, especially if we limit the topic to
our Litvak ancestors, will be research into descriptions in print, e.g.
the kinds of fabrics stocked and offered to Jewish and/or non-Jewish
customers in Jewish and non-Jewish stores at particular periods.

Certainly mores were always shifting, even if the orthodox core
remained. There were so many Jewish tailors and seamstresses that there
must be descriptions of fabric used, dresses made for particular occasions,
etc. Even the use of shmatas (rags, fragments of cloth) >from worn clothing
can give information. These people wasted nothing! This is a fascinating
research project, and I wonder if there are any dissertations or theses in
the academic world devoted to the topic. Considering the enormous role of
the "needlework trade" in Jewish life in Eastern Europe as well as the
great number of Jewish small tradesmen who sold "drygoods" (fabric), there
is a treasure to be unearthed.

In looking through the records for the Vilna gubernia I do not see
Kobylnik listed. The Russian name is Naroche. Though it is currently
in Belarus, in 1850 it was definitely part of the Vilna Gubernia.

Joachim vs. Chaim #lithuania

Suzan & Ron Wynne <srwynne@...>
 

My grandmother's nephew was born Joachim Metzger in about 1900 in Berlin. I
have his baby picture and his birth name was written on the back. However,
another photo taken when he was 5, says Chaim Metzger. His parents took the
children to Palestine when they were young and there he was called Chaim.
Because he was a member of the Communist Party, after WWII, he decided to
emigrate to East Berlin, the neighborhood where his family had lived during
his childhood. Who knows what his motivation was, but he used Joachim as his
official name.
