Nekhama connection with Ginesya #general

Manuel Meersohn <manuel.meersohn@...>
 

Dear fellow Genners,

In my total, absolute, complete ignorance I'm seeing the same diminutives,
nicknames following the names Nekhama and Ginesya, I can find under both
Anna, or very similar ones as Nese, Neshe, Nessie, Nisye, Nettie, Nekhe,
Nekhtse, Nekhtshe.

My question is can a person formally named Nekhama have a nickname very
similar or equal to Ginesya? Thanks in advanced and ever so grateful for
your kind help.

I'm trying to identify one person in my family named Nekhama with the
same person but known by its nickname Ginesya. All the best to each
and everyone of you.

Family Records on Stuttgart Hauptarchiv website [User comments] #germany

Eva Lawrence
 

Further to Ellen Kahn's post on Familienbuecher, (these are bound family
record books which hold the same information as the Familienregister,
slightly expanded. I have concurrent examples of both for my family).

Using Richard Oppenheimer's very helpful instructions for actually
accessing many records online >from the Stuttgart Archives (Hauptarchiv)
website, I actually printed out Richard's item for easy reference.
I then followed the (numerous) steps through and found I had arrived at
a lists of town names, that referred to Microfilms, each holding a partial
set of records (for a given time-frame) for a particular Jewish community
in named localities in Wuerttemberg. The small print under the bold title
gave details of the content of each microfilm.

The images I accessed, by clicking on the bottom-right rubric for each
film listing, ( 'ansehen' is the operative word) proved in many cases
to be sets of these Familienregistern, in PDF.

The images could be scrolled through, rotated and zoomed on. I found it
easiest to make page-grabs for the particular ones I wanted to keep. Often
the images didn't seem to be in any useful order - you had to browse.
There was also a marriage register, for one place I looked at. The
originals of the images were usually hand-written entries on preprinted
forms, often with entries of Jewish names in Hebrew characters in addition.

www.ancestry.com has a wealth of databases. Ancestry is a subscription

Re: BITTENSON Family 1880-1980 #general

Hi Hanna,

Since Samuel SHEINMAN was born 1915 (assuming in Massachusetts) you may want
to search MA marriage indices through 1915 at:
https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1469062

You can even search by first name only in case the surname was mispelled.

According to: http://www.sec.state.ma.us/arc/arcgen/genidx.htm a birth
record >from 1915 should be available to you. Samuel's 1915 birth record may
contain helpful info. I know that in NYC the birth certs asked for place
of birth of both parents, not sure about MA.

You sais that you can't find them on the census. Getting an address >from a
vital record can lead you to the census page. www.stevemorse.org has tools
to locate a census page >from an address.

Have you looked for the family in old city directories? Some old city
directories for MA can be found at:
http://www.donslist.net/PGHLookups/DirM.htm

Also, some old city directories can be found on Google Books.

A MA library with a genealogy room may have old city directories on microfilm.

Re: The Family LIEB #general

Hi Stephen,

I suggest starting by tracing the family back generation by generation.
Census and other very helpful databases can be searched at www.familysearch.org

U.S. vital records can be a source of finding parents names and females maiden
names.

Since they lived in Newark you may want to search the Jewish Chronicle.

Free to view index results, subscription to view actual page

Searching BERNSTEIN/JACOBS/BARNETT - 1860-1880 in England #general

Michael Hafken <mhafken@...>
 

I am hoping someone out there may have some information in their family
tree about my Great-great-great Grandparents who were in London in the
1860s and then seem to disappear >from online records that I've exhaustively
searched.

Specifically, the two people in question are Moritz BERNSTEIN (year of
birth unknown) and Annie BERNSTEIN (born about 1845 in Poland/Germany and
formerly JACOBS/BARNETT/BERNARD). No family history/information was passed
down about these relatives at all and the only hard evidence we've found is:

-1861 England Census - Annie was still living with her parents and sister
in Whitechapel/Spitalfields, England working as a Tailoress likely for her
father Barnett JACOBS who was a Government Tailor according to the Census.

-Birth (GRO) Record >from 1863 for my Great great Grandmother Eva Eddy
BERNSTEIN who later went by Eva Ada - Parents listed as Annie BARNSTIN
(formerly JACOBS) and Moritz BARNSTIN (Tailor's Foreman) living at 10
Seymour Crescent, Euston Square in Pancras.

-Birth GRO Record >from 1865 for Adolph BERNSTEIN (who became Charles S.
BERNSTEIN of New Haven, CT) - Parents listed as Annie BERNSTEIN (formerly
BERNARD) and Moritz BARNSTIN (Tailor/Cutter) living at 11 Clarendon Street,
in Camberwell.

-1932 Death certificate for my Great-great grand uncle Charles BERNSTEIN
that lists parents as Moritz BERNSTEIN and Annie BERNSTEIN according
to the informant, Charles's son Emanuel BERNSTEIN.

Sadly, I have been able to find **no** other information after scouring
Ancestry.com, Familysearch, newspapers, etc. I've found no marriage record
for Moritz and Annie in the GRO (although her sister Rosa was married in
the Great Synagogue in 1861) however they likely got married between 1861
and 1863.

I've also found no death records for either of them in the GRO. I've also
searched the 1861 census for Moritz using a variety of spellings and the
1871 census for Moritz, Annie, and their children. Moritz and Annie's
children each next show up in different places:

-In January 1871, 5 year-old Eva Eddy (listed as Ada BARNETT) sailed
to New York with her Grandmother Leah BARNETT (JACOBS in 1861) and in the 1880
census, was living with her Grandparents Jacob and Leah BARNETT (JACOBS in the
1861 England census) in New York.

-Charles BERNSTEIN (formerly Adolph) next appears in New Haven, CT in 1884
working in a butcher shop. I have not found a record of him in the 1871
England census, the 1880 US Census or in ship crossing records.

Eva Ada named her 2nd born daughter after her mother Annie in 1887 which
tells me Annie was dead by then. Our guess is that they possibly went back
to Poland/Prussia/Germany (possibly Gdansk) and died but we have no idea.

They could have also died in the 1866 cholera epidemic in London but again,
I've found no death records for them.

Does anyone out there know of this Moritz BERNSTEIN or Annie
BERNSTEIN/JACOBS/BARNETT/BERNARD? Any suggestions are welcome.

Surviving Twin searches for twin brother with Auschwitz tattoo A7734 #hungary

ethnoca@...
 

This notice was posted in the Rom-Sig newsletter earlier this year and I just realised that it never appeared in the Hungarian one, in spite of the fact that the missing brother's original given name was Jeno, which indicates a Hungarian background. To remedy the situation, I decided to present it to you in the hopes that for someone here it may ignite a spark of recognition, who then may make a connection. Although the contact information is missing, if anyone has any information, I am sure we can somehow forward it to Ms Kimron.

PS Does anyone know if there is a way to acquire adoption information in the US >from more than 60 years ago?

---------------------------------------------
Holocaust survivor, Menachem BODNER, was just four years old when he was
liberated in 1945 >from Auschwitz concentration camp. Now 72, retired, and
living in Israel, Menachem is on a quest to locate his identical twin brother, last
seen at Auschwitz, when the two were separated just 2 days before liberation.
In May 1944, Menachem and his identical twin brother were transported to
Auschwitz, two months prior to their 4th birthday. Being identical twins, they
were selected and became objects of criminal medical experiments. Luckily, both
survived the war, however, became separated.
One twin was adopted and given a new name, Menachem BODNER. The other twin
was adopted and taken to the USA. Maybe he too changed his name, maybe even
changed his religion---but the only definite link between them is the number
tattooed on their arm.
For the next 67 years, Menachem had no knowledge about his family or twin
brother---knowing only his own Auschwitz tattoo on his arm, which was A7733.
Red Cross records that were located, show Menachem's brother was alive two weeks
after Auschwitz was liberated, giving him hope that he was still alive and out there
to be found and reunited with him. Also, >from the Red Cross list, Menachem learned
his real name was: GOTTESMAN, Elias.
from the Red Cross records:
A-7733 GOTTESMAN, Elias
A-7734 GOTTESMAN, Jeno
Jeno, with the number A7734 tattooed on his arm, may be your neighbor, a friend, or
even a relative.
We ask that you pass this to appear in your synagogue newsletter, local newspaper
and local television stations to ensure widest dissemination.
There is also a Facebook page with photos and more information:
