Dairy restaurant in Philadelphia #general

mpcamitta@...
 

Although I think I thanked all of you who wrote individually, I wanted
to make sure I didn't miss anyone. While not strictly a genealogical
question, the location and identity of iconic Jewish institutions, like
dairy restaurants, enlivens our understanding of the religious and
cultural landscape in which our ancestors lived. I was delighted to
find Allen Meyer's book about Jewish South Philadelphia, and the
section devoted to kosher and dairy restaurants clustered around Jewish
residential hubs in South Philadelphia.

For those who might be interested, candidates for my mystery restaurant
on Broad Street opposite the Academy of Music were: The Blintza, at
Broad on Spruce Street, Bain's Delicatessan, on Broad Street, and
Uhr's, which Meyer says was on Fifth Street, below South.

Re: Can someone figure out these names? #general

I don't know what Sasfra might be. It sounds like it may be
connected to safira (sapphire) or safran (saffron), both of which
have biblical origins, and have been used as Jewish names.

Ceral might be Srul, a nickname for Yisrael, (i.e. Israel).

Shalama is probably Shlomo (Solomon).

Hi all,
I would like to talk to anyone who descends >from any
MANDELBAUM/MANDELBOIM/similar spellings >from the region of Radom.
My Mandelbaums might have come >from Gniewoszow, Granica, Kozienice,
Zwolen, but these are mostly guesses.
I am particularly interested in families settled in this region in
between 1790-1860.

Thanks in advance,

I need an Israeli genealogist to find a record for me. #general

Mark London <mrl@...>
 

Hi -I had a great aunt whose maiden name was Anna ROSENSTOCK. She immigrated
from Romania to the US in 1913. A brother Arnold came over in 1922. Anna died
at the age of 55 in 1951 in Indiana, and according to her obituary, she had 1
brother in Israel, Jacob Rosenstock. Anna also had 3 sisters in israel, Sophia,
Rachael, and Jeanette (and a Sylvia in Romania). I would like someone to do a
simple record search, to see if any of these people lived in Israel during that
time. Since I don't have married names for the sisters, I assume Jacob would
probably be the easiest to find. I am not initially ready to pay for an
extensive search, but would be interested in doing so if a record could be
found. Thanks. - Mark London

A Taste of the Immigrant Experience #general

Ittai Hershman
 

With all this talk of immigration to New York, I thought I would mention a
delightful book I just read: "97 Orchard Street: An Edible History of Five
Immigrant Families in One New York Tenement" by Jane Ziegelman.

The 5 families -- obviously just a narrative device -- are: (non-jewish)
German, Irish, German Jewish, Russian Jewish and Italian.

The NY Times Review is available at:
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/28/books/28book.html.

looking for my Grandfather's BINDLER family #general

Jacqueline Jacks <jackie.jacks@...>
 

My Grandfather was, as far as I know, born in Minsk in Russia in
about 1895. His name was Morris BINDLER and as far as I am aware
he did not change his name. His Father's name was Abraham Bindler.
They moved >from Minsk to the Caucasus. I understand >from my late
Mother's writings that his Mother ran a boarding house in Georgia
which was very popular with travellers as she was a very good cook.
I know that there is a Samuel Bindler but am uncertain as to his
exact relationship to my Grandfather.

I know that there is a distant cousin who lives in the Atlanta,
Georgie USA but apart >from that, I am at a bit of a loss. Sadly my
interest in the family line has come too late to ask the older
generation as there is only one member of the family left and she
does not really know very much herself.

If anyone can help me with this search, that would be great

I learned how to do basic coding solely for the purpose of being able
to volunteer to do Shtetlinks websites. My skills are elementary so,
periodically, I have asked Barbara Ellman for help. She always has
been responsive and has replied in terms a perpetual newbie to coding
can understand. It is a relief simply to know that she is there.
Brava, Barbara!
