RUBIN #general

dianat@...
 

Dear Friends
I am endeavouring to trace the parents of Paul Rubin. Without his original
name, its proved impossible, so far.

Paul Rubin, according to his United States Naturalization Record, 1921, was
born on the 4th July 1890, in Radomsko, Poland.

It states on that Document that he arrived in New York, United States on or
about 16th September 1913, aboard SS Potsdam sailing >from Rotterdam.

Soon after he arrived into New York, he married Frida/Frieda, maiden name
unknown. She was born in 1892 also in Russia/Poland. Frida arrived into New
York in 1911.

To-gether they had four children. Morris Dave, Ruth, Bernhard A and Rosalie.
All born in New York.

There is no record of anyone with any resemblance to the name of Paul Rubin
born 4th July 1890 in Radomsko, Poland.

I have checked many variations of Rubin without a glimmer of success.
Is there anyone out there who recognizes any of the above names.

Thank you
Diana Terry

Looking for information re SELIG and FINCK families (from the Palatinate Region) #germany

kathleeninc@...
 

Hello GerSig,

I have been doing genealogy research to find out more about one of my
ancestors, Johann Jacob SELIG (b. 1732), who emigrated >from the
Palatinate Region to Nova Scotia (Canada) in 1751. His parents were
Johann Georg SELIG and Elisabetha FINCK. While I and some other family
members have been searching for some time, we have been unable to find
out exactly where they came >from or any other details about them. We do
know that Johann Jacob SELIG travelled >from Rotterdam on a ship called
the Murdoch, along with many first settlers of the Lunenberg/Tancook
Island area of Nova Scotia (other names on the same ship include
Schaffner, Wolff, Binder, Berger, Diell, Volcker, Hartman, Hirschman,
Rissch, and Glasser). Some historical information inaccurately
identifies them as French Protestants, and contains sketchy and probably
unreliable information about their towns of origin.

My great-grandmother was Catherine SELIG, the daughter of Solomon SELIG
and Catherine MOORE, who lived in Purcell's Cove, Nova Scotia. There
are numerous Seligs now throughout the province, as well as others
scattered across Canada and the US. Most were/are practicing Jews, but
some were/are not, presumably because the first settlers were compelled
or encouraged to convert; or did so through intermarriage, lack of a
Jewish community infrastructure, etc. I appreciate that the name has
numerous forms (SEELIG, ZELIG, SELLECK, etc.), but the members of my
family all seem to have been consistently listed as SELIG.

Any information or tips about how to carry out further research on this
would be most appreciated.

I've obtained my mother's case file >from World Jewish Relief, documenting the
assistance she received during World War II >from that organization, then
called the German Jewish Aid Committee. The file contains an abbreviation
whose meaning the volunteer at World Jewish Relief didn't know, so I've posted
an image on ViewMate in the hope that someone familiar with this type of
document can explain it to me.

It is on ViewMate at

Yiddish word sought #general

Paiste, Marsha S. <Marsha.Paiste@...>
 

I am writing a family history and I hope someone can help me with a small detail.

My grandparents owned a cat which was always walking on the table or jumping on
the furniture. They yelled for it to get down and used a Yiddish word for "get
off of there." That word then became the poor animal's name. The word sounded
like "Fen-em-sha." I have tried to find the word in some reference works on
Yiddish, but haven't had any luck.

I hope someone out there knows what the command could be.
Thanks in advance for your help.

(Sweden) ArkivDigital Free Access March 19-20th. #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Saturday March 19 is Genealogy Day in Sweden and many genealogy societies
and organizations host lectures and exhibits. ArkivDigital is participating
and anyone may access their database for free March 19-20 >from their home.
ArkivDitial has almost 60 million images to research Swedish heritage? - they
increase their database by 600,000 images per month. The free offer is for
those who do not currently have a subscription.

If you think you might not have ancestors >from Sweden, there have been Jews
in Sweden since the early 1700s. albeit a small population. Sweden opened
its doors to Jews during WWII and again in 1956 when Jews were fleeing
Hungary and then again when fleeing Communists in 1968. According to the
Jewish Virtual Library the Jewish population increased tremendously between
1850 and 1920 due to immigration >from Russia and Poland. The population
reached nearly 6,500 in 1920. Small groups of German, Austrian, and Czech
Jews were allowed to immigrate to Sweden during the 1930's. Once the Nazi
brutalities were known Sweden opened its doors to Jews. In 1942, Sweden
allowed the immigration of 900 Norwegian Jews. In October 1943, Sweden gave
asylum to more than 8,000 Danish Jews, the whole Danish Jewish community,
which came to Sweden via small fishing boats. The Jewish population doubled
between1945-1970.

No, I think we need here more than a letter >from JewishGen organization. We need it >from our

Would a letter >from the Bessarabian SIG to the law enforcement offices of the city and/or region

Karen,
Re your query about the names, Genya is the same name as Henya (no G in
Russian), which is a nickname for Hana. Egudis

I have found records for the wife or wives of my uncle >from Belarus,
with the following names: Yudansya, Egudis, Genya. Egudis I think is
yehudis (judith). I'm still working on Yudansya. No, I don't think any
of these belonged too the same person unless she had more than one name.

Do these three names all refer to the same person? It is possible that
the first two names are the same person and my relative married a
different woman named Genya after Egudis died?
