Searching the name SAFIER #general

Corinne Silver <corinnesilver@...>
 

Please can you help me in my search for my family. My
Great-Grandfather (Paternal) was called Maks (Meir/Meyer) SAFIER. He
was married to Sara (Soroh) SCHELBOFSKI. He naturalized as a British
citizen on the 21st of April 1897 when he lived in Lucas Street,
London, E1. On his naturalization certificate it states that he was a
subject of Russia having been born at Veikes, Rudam. He was the son of
Israel and Sarah SAFIER. Maks had four children who in 1897 were,
Annie 7, Dora 5, Israel 4, Samuel 2.
Israel married Irene (Rifka) JACOBS whos father had been an Alderman
of City of London. His name, we think, was Harold or Hymie. The family
were members of Bevis Marks Synagogue. He was a wholesaler.
Israel & Irene had 1 son, Geoffrey, who married Muriel Silver, who was
the daughter of Bobby (Reuven) SILVER (SILVERSTEIN) whos family owned
Silversteins Salt Beef Bar in Whitechapel. Bobby's wife, who is still
alive, is called Anne but was born as Hannah MANNHEIM.
The family changed their name to MANNING. Her mothers name was
Jane/Sheindel MANNHEIM and she came >from a village outside Warsaw. Her
husband apperently died quite young and the trail has stopped here.

I am searching for these names. SAFIER, SCHELBOFSKI, JACOBS,
SILVERSTEIN, MANNING, MANNHEIM and SILVER.

We know that one of the JACOBS sisters married into the GOLDMAN family
who moved to USA in the 1950's/60's. We are also aware that SAFIER
spelt this way was unusual and when my Father was alive there were
only three listings in the UK for that spelling, now there are none.

Family heresay tells us that some of Maks' (Meyer's) family fled to
the USA and he was on his way there when he got off at the wrong port,
London, therfore I would be pleased to hear >from any SAFIER or SAFIR.

Searching for Judith THOMASHEFSKY in Los Angeles area #general

priever@...
 

Looking for Judith THOMASHEFSKY, born ca. 1925 in New York City. If
still alive, now living in Los Angeles, CA. area. Uncertain whether
married. Father was Harry, Director and producer on Yiddish stage.
Mother was Vera. Grandparents were Boris and Bessie THOMASHEFSKY,
founders of Yiddish Theater.
Searching for her has a strong connection to Mokom Sholom Cemetery
project.
Thank you.

Searching SEFKIN,CEFKIN,TSIFKIN from Rudnya Belarus #general

Linda Birnbaum <birnbaum@...>
 

My husband's mother and her parents are >from Rudnya in what is now
Belarus. Rudnya lies on a straight line between Vitebsk and Smolensk, so
on some maps is in Belarus and on others is in Russia. Meyer spelled
his name Sefkin, but he had relatives who came to the US at a later time
who spell their name Cefkin. It was probably Tsifkin.

The family members I have found are:
Meyer (Myer) born 1888
possible siblings Sofia, Samuel, Misha, Sonya ( is this Sofia?)

Laurence Trister <ltrister@...>
 

Hello

I have just been told that my family name of Trister stems in some way from
the names Alkallay/Alkalai.

The early geographical links would be Botasani in Romania and Trieste in
Italy

Thanks in advance

Searching FREEDMAN - Wlocklawek ->London #general

goldstone <goldstone@...>
 

I have become stuck in researching my family, as we have no known
surname. I know that my great grandfather was ELIEZER HACOHEN, born
approx 1830, lived in Wlocklawek, was a Rabbi, and drowned around 1860.
His wife was pregnant at the time, the child was called Eliezer ben
Eliezer. She carried on his rabbinical functions, answering sheilas,
remarried and had 4 (?) more children. Around 1905, she and Eliezer left
Poland for London, England, and changed the surname to Freedman. If
anyone can help me find out more, given no surname, I would be very
grateful.

Thank you

This message is in response to a inquiry by a Judy Marcus and a follow up by
david Shapiro.

I have a couple of questions about your recent posting in the Litvak Sig.
My maternal grandmother's family is >from Posvalys and Birzai and has the
Siegel name. These towns are fairly close to Panevys.

Secondly, the name Shmulevitz is interesting as I had a friend at one
time - Aaron Shmulewitz >from NYC. Is there a connection between yours and
this guy.
