Looking for birth information for Benjamin Robert SCHNEIDERMAN, Manchester, England, 1892/93 #general

Ann Armoza <armozaan@...>
 

Need help looking for a birth certificate for Benjamin Robert SCHNEIDERMAN
in Manchester, England 1892 or 1893.

I am trying to help a friend who is looking for a birth certificate for her
grandfather, Benjamin Robert Schneiderman (Sneiderman).
This what we know. David and Fredi Schneiderman arrived in Philadelphia on
the British Princess out of Liverpool on 10 September 1893. They were going
to Leib Glasses (GLASSER) in New York City. There is no mention of Fredi
being pregnant or any mention of an infant with them. Last address in
Manchester was 105 Moreton Street in Strangeways. It looks like they
resided there for 8 months.
Both seem to have been born in ‘Russia’.
We have found Benjamin Sneiderman on Federal Census papers for New Haven, CT
(1900,1910,1920,1930) indicating that he is a naturalized citizen born in
England in 1893. His draft registration papers (World War I and II) give a
birth date of 15 November 1893. Again, he is a naturalized citizen on those
papers.
We have checked, unsuccessfully, on Ancestry for Benjamin’s birth
certificate. There is an entry for a 1921 death certificate but this is not
the correct person.
Thinking that perhaps Benjamin was born in1892 in Manchester, we have used
other online sites to no avail. Family stories have him being born on board
the British Princess, but given his stated birth date it’s more likely that
he was born in Philadelphia or New York.
Is there any other way we can do a search of Manchester birth records for
the years 1892 and 1893? It may be that his birth was simply not registered
in England or the United States.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Date: September 19, 2010 1:00 p.m. schmoozing
1:30 p.m. short business meeting and program
Location: B'nai Israel, 6301 Montrose Rd, Rockville, MD
Speaker: Steve Luxenberg

"Genealogy >from the Inside Out: Tracing a Family Secret >from a Single Clue"

When we learn about a family secret -- a hidden relative (or a hidden
marriage, or a hidden divorce, or a hidden cause of death) our
understanding of the family tree is dramatically changed. How do we pursue
that single clue? In 1995, Washington Post Associate Editor Steve Luxenberg
found out his mother had been hiding the existence of a sister who was then
deceased, and it was the genesis for his multi-year odyssey to unravel the
rest of the story, including his aunt's three decades in a psychiatric
institution. Using a slide presentation, Luxenberg brings the audience
along on the journey he took to write his award-winning book, "Annie's
Ghosts: A Journey Into a Family Secret." He travels through burial records,
birth certificates, hospital records, immigration documents and wartime
records, and assembles them into a coherent paper trail. A result was a
significantly changed understanding of his family history and societal
stigma regarding mental health.

Guests are welcome. This program is relevant to all faiths.

Mr. Luxenberg will also be available for a book signing.

FELDMAN/VALDMAN IN VELIOUNA, KOVNO #lithuania

Sue Welsh <suewelsh@...>
 

It's not a stupid question at all! We're dealing with two alphabets --
Cyrillic and Roman, phonetic spellings, and all sorts of other
variables.
It is entirely possible that they could be the same surname -- or not.
What you'll have to do is try and match up some given names, addresses, etc.,
to figure it out.

In my own family, my paternal grandfather's surname changed six times
during his lifetime: >from Hranet in Odessa, to Granet, to Grannet, to
Granett, to Granit and finally Granite in America. and his given name
morphed >from Moisha to Moses to Maurice to Morris.

And when I first met my husband, I thought his surname was Walsh not
Welsh!

And that's just two people meeting in the same town.

Dear All,

They say there are no silly questions so I hope that covers me on this
one and I don't appear as totally without a clue.

I'm researching FELDMAN in Veliouna, Kaunas, Lithuania. The VALDMAN
same comes up quite a bit in the same town when searching by D-M code.

Are these two totally separate surnames or could they possibly overlap
and all belong to the same family?

I have extensively researched the VALDMAN families >from the Kovno Gubernia
and have never found an instance where it's been spelled as FELDMAN or with
an "F". The only other spellings I've encountered on the All-Lithuanian

two totally separate surnames. I hope that helps!

Greetings. I have read all of the instructions (FAQ) and still need
some assistance. Where do I find the coordinating Mormon film numbers
to the pages of the Lithuanian Belarus family census on the Lithuanian
Database. I would like to request the film at my local Family Search
Center. The Lithuania Database lists the page numbers, family
registration numbers and former family registration numbers. I would
like to view and make copies of the original records so that I can
learn what the names look like in the native language.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Dear Friends:

I need help with two photos, images >from Lodz, Poland of my relatives:

Can anyone identify the possible year or period when this picture was
taken based on the clothing? Also, is the child a boy or girl? What
would you surmise is the relationship between the people in the photo?
Their ages? Why would one of the faces be cut out? Thank you for your
help with the image at

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16298


Finally, what would you estimate as the year the photo at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16299
was taken? What would you surmise are the ages of the subject and
their relationship? It is possible that the older man is a rabbi,
possibly a well-known rabbi in Lodz with the last name of Zander.

I appreciate your observations and comments!
