Hi all

I would be most grateful if someone could please translate the record at the link below. I can’t save it or reduce it in size, so all I could do was bookmark it.

It is for the marriage of Hersz Rakower to Sora Erynbarck on 15 Feb 1827, Akta 20 (registered in 1832).

The record is in Polish.

Hello,

I believe the town is Buhusi, it belongs today to the Bacau county by it's near the Neamt county which borders changed over the century.

My paternal family was from this town.
Kind regards,

Help with details of a known grave at Weissensee Cemetery #germany #general

Helene Bergman
 

My great grandfather Israel BERGMANN b. 03 Apr 1860 in 'Tultscha', Romania;
d. 21 Apr 1917 / 3 p.m. in Berlin  death certificate # 795/1917  was buried Thursday, 26 Apr 1917 / 1 p.m. at  Grave # 50576; field T IV, row 2.
 
I am trying to determine his father's name, and I am hoping that it appears on the gravestone. Is there a photograph of that grave or a database that would give more burial details? I remember that Bert de Jong was working on a catalogue at one point.
Thanks in advance.

Re: How Weird Are We? #general

From my Ancestry DNA matches, I sent out about 20 Ancestry messages. I did hear back from about 8 of them. In my messages out, I tell them what surnames are in my family, the towns we come from in the old country, and the towns/cities that my forebears moved to in the US. I also tell them about my public tree on Ancestry.

Of the 8 who answered back, only two actually had good enough trees that they and I could figure out how we were related. And for 4-5 who did not answer back, I was still able to glean enough info from the trees that they had posted, to figure out the family connections. 

I have also twice sent out real letters, to persons that I was especially interested in hearing from. I included all the above info, plus to whet the recipient's appetite, a copy of an interesting document, like a Russian/Hebrew marriage record. That has worked well.

The only downside - I am now being honored with more family lore tales, invariably of how our forebears are descended from rabbinical families, Sephardic Jews, or fantastically wealthy factory owners who married Russian nobility and moved to St. Petersburg (and these are just the ones I've heard in the past two months). There is an inexhaustible supply of these tales.

I do not approach people more than once or twice, especially persons who I do not know at all. Most people who take DNA tests are not interested in genealogy and finding distant relatives, they just want to know their ethnicity. Plus, I've been annoyed by people on Ancestry who send me messages of the sort: We are 4-6th cousins. Can you tell me how we are related? Invariably these are persons who have no family trees, have surnames like Levy and Goldberg, and expect me to do all the research. No thanks.

CORRECTION re 1900 COLLE immigration to Montreal #canada

annearmel@...
 

The COLLE family may have immigrated to Montreal through Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, not Buenos Aires, Argentina. There is disagreement among family members about this
MY ORIGINAL EMAIL IS BELOW:
I have been unable to find the ship that transported my great-grandparents and their several children who arrived in Montreal in 1900 from Romania. There is a possibility that they first went to Buenos Aires, Argentina  and from there made their way to Montreal.  Can someone please tell me the most likely seaports they would have used, or direct me somewhere to try and find that ship and manifest? Their names used in Montreal and on the Canadian census were:
Father: Jacob Joseph COLLE
Mother: Rebecca COLLE (nee Schecter)
Children: Eliza (Liza), Sarah (Lieb), Millie (Molly), Marie (Mary, May), Betse (Beatrice), Charles and  William

Hi there,

IT may be advisable to post the actual document, sometimes the transcription is incorrect.
In any event, I think it's probably Buhusi, back at the end of the 19th century it was part of the county of Neamt apparently, and one of the name variants is Bohus.

it's normal for people not to answer.  Sometimes I look for them on Facebook and send them a message.  I have gotten more responses that way than any other.  Only one person has responded to my message through DNA companies.  I wonder why they take the test if they aren't going to answer.  It's very frustrating but you can't do any more about it.

Looking for family relocated from Kupiskis to Yadrin #lithuania #russia

Marc Friedman
 

I have recently learned that a distant cousin, Rochel GERVIC (b 1893, daughter of Devorah CHESARSKI/TSESARSKI and Berelis GERVIC/GERVICIUS), her husband Mausa/Moisey TRAUB (b 1891), and their daughter Dveira/Dora (born 1922) were relocated during the war from Kupiskis to Yadrin.

Other cousins appear to have been in contact with them into the 1930's, but we are unaware if there was any contact during or after the war.

Does anyone have ideas for seeing what happened to them after they survived the war (per Yad va-Shem testimony)?

Many Thanks.

Re: How Weird Are We? #general

I have found, especially with how “upside down” the world has been with the Corona Virus Pandemic lingering on for now about a year, I start my messages with how I am writing in hopes of finding a family connection and that  I am hoping they and their family  are doing well, despite the craziness of the past year.  I then go on to explain how I feel we might be related, making sure to include enough information that gives them something to go on.  I always look for a tree and if they have one, I always make sure that what I give them, could point to a location or possible person they are researching.

 

When I found my 5th cousin once removed, I was able to share with her how I kept seeing her great grandmother’s and great great uncle’s names through my research over the years and wondered if they could be family.  I hit a huge jackpot with my father’s mother’s father’s line a year and a half ago when someone reached out to a cousin of mine who in turn had me look over the stuff to see if it seemed correct.  During the transferring of information, I came across the names of the people I just had mentioned…through researching both lines, I reached out to my now (genealogy) partner in crime.  She lives on the other side of the United States from me but we talk and email throughout the week and work together on many searches, even those that are not part of the overall family are in.  If I see someone who has last names she is looking for or if she finds names I am looking for, we let the other one know.

 

That is why I am a huge advocate for having a research buddy because two sets of eyes, especially with many of us having such huge families to research, can be beneficial!

I suspect that with the proliferation of phishing and other scams, many people are leery of strangers who claim to be "family."  It may be better to call or snail mail and it may help to mention right away that you are a genealogy enthusiast who simply wants to contact relatives found through your research.  Even then, there will be folks who are not interested or only marginally interested. I ran into one, a second cousin through the uncle for whom my father is named. She suggested meeting but never followed through, after her son contacted me. It happens.

Bohuss Neamta, Romania & Canada to US border crossing question #romania #canada #usa

annearmel@...
 

My great-aunt Sarah COLLE Goldner traveled  from  Montreal to the United States in 1937 to visit her married daughter. She reported on the border-crossing document that she was born in 1886 in BOHUSS NEAMTA, Romania. I can't locate a town by that name in Romania. Can someone tell me what it is called today and where it is located in Romania?

Also, her border-crossing document to visit her daughter in the U.S. lists a Leon Hu under "Departure Contact Name" and  Jacob So under "Accompanied by Name." Those names are not our family names and are unfamiliar to me. It is curious that she listed someone unrelated to her (Leon Hu) as her departure contact rather than a family member. She was married with grown children and living in Montreal with her husband. It is probably unknowable, but maybe someone has an idea.
