*re: Accents and umlauts #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Actually there is an international convention to use accents in email
messages which goes like this:

' sign for the acute accent like in the word Kecskeme't
" sign for the long umlaut like in the word Gyo"r
: sign for the short umlaut like in the word Go:mo:r
~ sign for the hachek like in the word Z~ilina

I suggest that we addopt this scheme until such a time when the JewishGen
server's webmaster decides to activate the 8 bits MIME encoding feature
which would eliminate all errors. Why is it that simple things take so long
to happen?

regards
Tom

Hirschburg
and that he was born in Berlin, Germany 8/2/1863 and died 6/16/1929 in
Dayton, Ohio.
His parents names were Joseph Hirschburg and Alwine Hecht. Do either of

look familiar to anyone ? We have never know anyone else with the name of
Hirschburg
and would love to, so if anyone has any information please contact me at my
email
address (goldmoon@...)

Thanks , Susan Sassaman

RUBIN #general

Lois Friedman <Loisfried@...>
 

Hello,

I am searching for the family of Hyman and Fanny RUBIN >from Chicago, IL.

They were the parents of Esther, Pearl and Morey. I believe that they
were
in the business of manufacturing "Dungarees". Daughter Esther married a
man
named Alban (spelling?) and I believe that they had two sons and settled
in
California. Pearl was married to Morey Malis and Pearl has a daughter
Leila who
lived in Chicago before moving to CA. Leila was married to Sandy
(Sanford)
Gerber and they had two sons (Leila and Sandy divorced). Morey was
married
but I really know very little about them.

Fanny was Fanny LECHNER , sister of Yetta GREIF and Ethel BARIS both of
whom lived in New Jersey.

Please if anyone has any information on the Rubin's , their children,
grandchildren or
greatgrandchildren I truly would appreciate your sharing..

PLOTNIK from Pinsk #general

M Schejtman <mario_m@...>
 

Hello everybody,

Talking with a second cousin I learned a little more about the family of
my grandfather Isaac PLOTNIK, >from Pinsk(now Belarus). So now is the
time to share this information with you, maybe someone out there has
any knowledge or a hint that can assist me.
Here goes: My grandfather had three brothers and a sister (Mordechai
Michael, David, Baruch Mendel and Slava/Sylvia respectively) My request
for help regards two of his brothers.

David PLOTNIK, was a carpenter. He moved >from Pinsk to Vilna. He had two
sons, Ephraim (that emmigrated to the US and was the only one to survive
the
Holocaust) and Menashe.

Baruch Mendel PLOTNIK, owned a candy store in Pinsk. He was married but
we do not know for sure the name of his wife, nor if they had any
children. He (and probably his family too) perished in the Holocaust.

Many thanks in advance to everyone for any comment.

Searching for LEWIS from Bohemia #general

TSI <tsirlr@...>
 

Would welcome any ideas for tracing original name of Simon Ephraim Lewis,
born in Pilsen, Bohemia, in 1805. Simon immigrated to the U.S. as a young
man, settled in Wisconsin. Somewhere along the line, his name was
Americanized to Lewis. Would welcome contacts >from any other Lewises who
have successfully traced Jewish lineage to Bohemia, and information on
surnames which may have been converted into Lewis.

Jacob and Julia GOODMAN #general

Mrs M Sprott
 

Has anyone got any suggestions on what I should do next? Jacob and Julia
GOODMAN were born in 1812, and 1814. Their daughter, my Great Grandmother,
Jane Goodman was born in England in 1849, at Houndsditch Street, when Jacob
abd Julia were 37 and 35 years old. This seems quite old to me for anyone
to be just starting a family, especailly a woman, and way back then, and so
I just wondered if they may have had children back in Prussia, Germany,
where ever, and they did not come to England with them. They did not list
their date of marriage in the 1871 Census, so I don't know if they were
married before they came to England or not.
Is there any one in England who could do a search for me to find out if
there was ever a marriage listed in England between Jacob and Julia
Goodman(formerly Goldman)?

Thankyou,
Monica Sprott
