Re: Searching: LORD, early 1900's #general

Patricia Adams
 

Sirs I'm seeking any and all info about the Leo and Dora LORD family who
migrated >from Russia Poland via possibly England about 1902 or 05. Also
related are the Sachs and Alexander families. They were all members of a
Family Circle in N.Y.C. in the thirties and forties.
Am also seeking the Aaron and Yetta Levy who migrated >from the same area
via
London approx 1909. I do not know the name of the town they came from.
Please circulate my message to your subscribers.
Gert Lord
Although I can not help you with any of the names you listed, I am wondering
if you or any others have followed the families that stayed in England for
awhile on their way to the US. I believe that that was the situation with
my gparents. I believe that my father may have been born there and am
checking for a birth certificate. Do you know where they might have stayed?
Was there some sort of jewish community that assissted these people on their
way >from Poland/Russia to America during that time period?
Thanks for any information that may be available.

Searching: SERVETNIK, Phila #general

Jewel Fishkin <XJEWELX@...>
 

Just came across telegrams sent to my parents for their wedding
in 1922. I know about most of them except the name SERVETNIK >from Philadelphia. The telegrams were sent to Ida HORWITZ
(father=Naphtali HOROWITZ >from Szumsk- Mother: Faiga GOLDMAN from
Koretz). I believe it was >from her family since she had an Aunt
Dora GLICK)in Philadelphia. She married Joseph Rosenthal
from Kamenetz Podolsk. Does anyone know a Servetnik family
originally >from Philadelphia??

Except before, during and after W.W. II when Jewish immigration to Canada
was guided by a "None is too many" underlying policy! (See: Abella, Irving.

BLOCH of Stein Bloch Clothes #general

Elless <elless@...>
 

Many years ago, I met a cousin of my mother's named BLOCH who was a founding
partner in Stein Bloch Clothes. He lived in Great Neck, NY. I am trying to
trace his connection, and wonder if anyone knows of his family.

Re: The first name: Avadia #general

Joanna <joanal@...>
 

The only possibility that came to my mind is that it could be "Obadiah" in
English >from "Ovadiah" in Hebrew. Surely it isn't Polish since the Polish
version of the Biblical name is Abdiasz and I've never heard of anybody who
would be called like this.

Re: Art Garfunkel #general

Does anyone know Art GARFUNKEL's genealogy?
Arthur Garfunkle was born on October 13, 1942 in
Queens, New York
And, just to prove Stacy's point, the World Almanac lists his birthdate as
11/5/41.

Re: The first name: Avadia #general

AVADIA is OVADIA, the fourth of the "minor prophets". The book of Ovadia
is the shortest in the Tanach (Old Testament) = only 27 verses long.

Is anyone familiar with the first name Avadia ? Is it Hebrew, Russian,
or Polish?
