Descendants of Abram ABRAHAMS #general

KarenShafron@...
 

Hello

I am looking for descendants of Abram Abrahams who I can place at 11
Sidney Street in the East End of London in 1921. He had at least three
sisters, Ada & Leah who went to America and Betsy or Becky who was a stall
holder, although not sure where.

He was the son of Tobias & Sarah Abrahams.

Does anybody recognise this description.

Yours hopefully

Karen Shafron


Polish translation requested ViewMate 1102 #general

Dear Genners,

I would appreciate the Polish translation of part of a birth registration
I was thrilled to obtain with the help of JRI-Poland. The registration
records the 1884 birth in Tarnopol of Schmiel Teperberg, son of Abraham
Schorrer and Zirl Teperberg.

The image is recorded as ViewMate file number 1102 and can be accessed
directly at :

COHEN in NYC, KOHN & BROWN in Chicago, ROSENSTEIN & GOTLIEB in Cleveland #usa

Rebecca Fenning <macguffin317@...>
 

Hello all,

I'm a new member and am researching several different lines:

Moses COHEN was born c1834 in Prussia? and came to New York in about 1869.
He married Fannie GOLDSTEIN or WISCHENSKY (records give different names) in
Europe, and at least one of their daughters, Rebecca COHEN was born between
1855-1859 in Europe as well. Various records give Rebecca's arrival in the
US btwn 1871-1876. Rebecca COHEN married Philip ROUDER/RUDER (c1854-1942)
c1888 in New York. Moses and Fannie had at least 2 other daughters,
supposedly born in New York: Sadie COHEN (1876-1932) m. David L. HARRIS
(1866-1932), a participant in the OK Land Rush, and lived in NYC; and Anna
COHEN (1880-1937) m. Max KALISCH (1875-1947) settled in York, Pennsylvania.
Moses COHEN died 1914 in the Bronx.


Rosa KOHN (b 1854) married David BROWN (b1853) in Chicago in 1876. David
came to the US in 1871 or 1874 >from Austria. The 1900 census gives Rosa's
arrival date >from Austria as 1873. Rosa's brother, Isidore KOHN (d. 1925),
as well as parents Aaron KOHN (1826-1906) and Josephine (1826-1900) all
arrived in the US c1878 and settled in Chicago. Isidore KOHN married
Hermine (or Minnie) BECK (d.1917) in Chicago in 1889. Isidore, Minnie,
Aaron and Josephine KOHN are all buried in Free Sons Cemetery in Chicago.

The extended ROSENSTEIN family came to the US >from Rajgrod, Poland in
approximately 1880. Though I am specifically looking for the family of
Elliot David ROSENSTEIN (1833-1903) and Belle Brina GOTTLIEB (1835-1909),
other branches of both the ROSENSTEIN and GOTTLIEB/GOTLIEB families arrived
in the US around that time. My ROSENSTEINs settled in Cleveland, Ohio, but
I know that GOTLIEBs settled in Ohio and Savannah, Georgia, among other
places, and changed the name to GRAYSON, GROVENOR and GOLDMAN in some cases.
Related CUKIERBRAUN/ZUCKERMAN families >from Rajgrod settled in Cleveland
as well.

Thanks,

Dear Richard and Genners,

I too almost gasped when I saw this as an occupation of an ancestor.
But upon closer inspection I let a sigh of relief, he was a
boot-maker!

A town: Boskovow (Ukraine) #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

Neither ShtetlSeeker (http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/) nor
MapQuest (http://www.mapquest.com/) is helping me with this: Does
anyone know the location of a town named "Boskovow"? It should be in
Ukraine, and I would expect it to be in this general area:

First graphic image--
http://userpages.wittenberg.edu/dkazez/fam/city/ob-cit.html

This town name (Boskovow) was listed on a 1918 death certificate,
filed in Vienna.

Perhaps it is Bykovka? Was that a known Jewish town??

Rzeszow SURNAME List On-Line #general

EDENSARA@...
 

I am pleased to offer my good wishes to all and announce an early Chanukah
gift to researchers with an interest in Rzeszow, Poland.

As part of the Rzeszow PSA indexing project currently underway, JRI-Poland
has made available a list of surnames found in the civil registration
records for the city of Rzeszow.

This list may prove useful to researchers in several ways. By scanning
the surname list, you may notice a name or names you had forgotten or were
unaware of in the locality. Or, you may notice a surname for which you
didn't have the town of origin or residence. Additionally, alternate
spellings which may not appear using Daitch-Mokotoff Soundex searching may
appear.

For the listing of surnames found in the Rzeszow records, please go to
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/rzeszowsurn.htm>


For information on the status of the Rzeszow indexing project, please
go to
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/psastat1.htm#Rzeszow>


For information on how to receive all Rzeszow records in an Excel
spreadsheet, please go to

Attention Boryslaw and Drohobycz Researchers #galicia

Willie46@...
 

A very kind donor to the JRI-Poland AGAD indexing projects
for Boryslaw and Drohobycz has issued a challenge to all
researchers of these towns. His family will match, dollar for
dollar, all contributions made to these projects until the
projects are fully funded.

Boryslaw (4917 2325) has a target of $2,263 to index over
15,000 records that include births for 1878-1889, 1894-1899
and deaths for 1878-1899. As of today, contributions total
$1,751 or 77%. With your help, the challenge will enable
Boryslaw to reach its goal by contributing the final $512.

Drohobycz (4921 2330) has been split into 2 separate
fundraising initiatives. Initiative #1 to index the 1877-1899
births and 1877~1899 marriages (some years are missing)
has been completed with donations totaling $1,828. Initiative #2
to index the 1852-1899 deaths has a target of $2,035. As of
today, contributions total $234 or just 12%. With your help, the
challenge will enable Drohobycz #2 to reach its goal with
contributions of $1,292. Our anonymous donor will match every
contribution dollar for dollar.

For more information about the Boryslaw project, please contact
Town Leader, Alexander Sharon <a.sharon@...> or
myself <willie46@...>. For more information about the
Drohobycz project, please contact Town Leader, Carole Feinberg
<feincgs@...> or myself <willie46@...>.

You can help ensure the indexing of the Boryslaw and
Drohobycz records. Please consider a contribution to the
AGAD project. Information on contributing is available at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/agad/agadcontrib.htm>.

The AGAD record indices contained in the JRI-Poland database
would not be accessible to researchers without our host,
JewishGen. In addition to your contribution to the JRI-Poland
AGAD Project that supports indexing of the records, we hope
you will also give to JewishGen to help defray the cost of
maintaining these records. An easily accessible contribution
form is available at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/AGAD.html>.

Re: Rabbi Mendeli, Sfas Emes and RIM #general

The "Sfas Emes" was Reb Yehudah Leib, whose teachings were
published by his son Reb Avrum Mordechai the "Imrei Emes". The
Grandfather of the "Sfas Emes" was Rabbi Yitzchok Meir known as
the "Chidushei HaRIM", (an acronym for Reb Itzchak Meir who was
the founder of the dynasty of Gur.

All the above were Grand Rabbi's of the Chasidic Dynasty of Gur.
The reference to Reb Mendele might be to the mentor of the Chidushei
