ViewMate: EDELSON, IDELOVICH, ZILBERMAN, SILVERMAN and Annette GUERRON #general

Hilary Osofsky
 

I am hoping that someone can identify the young woman whose photo is at
ViewMate p. 15355

www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=15355

We know that she was >from our Edelson (formerly Idelovich) family but
are otherwise unable to identify her. The photo was taken either in the
U.S. or in Manchester, England, in the mid-1940's.

Separately, I am also hoping that someone can put me in touch with
fellow Genner Annette Guerron and/or can identify the family members
in the photos that she sent me some time ago. These photos are posted
on ViewMate (see below).

Annette contacted me concerning my Edelson / Idelovich and
Silverman-Zilberman families >from Kovno Guberniya, Russia -
see towns, also below.

Although most of my family ultimately emigrated to the U.S.,
they initially emigrated to Manchester, England. Evidently,
Annette's family also lived in Manchester.

Unfortunately, it appears that the email address that I have for Annette
is outdated. As a result, I have been unable to tell her that we might be
related.

In that regard, one of my Edelson cousins identified the young couple in
Annette's photos as Max and Lena Liebowitz. As a child, this cousin thought
that Lena Liebowitz was a close friend of her mother, Dora (Danke) Gans
Guttenplan. However, there is reason to believe that Lena and Danke were
actually related. FYI, Danka's mother was Mary Hinda Idelovich Gans and her
grandmother was Malke Zilberman Idelovich.

I found a Max and Lena Bassman Liebowitz / Leibowitz (1869-1927; 1872 -
?), who lived in Passaic, New Jersey, and Queens, New York, >from 1900 - 1927?,
children Isador (aka Edwin), Sidney, Alexander and Eleanor, but have no
way of knowing if they are the same people.

There is also a Lena Leiber Harrison Sax / Sachs in our family (1861-1928)
who lived in Manchester. It is possible that Leiber might be a shortened
version of Leibowitz.

I would greatly appreciate it if anyone having any information would
contact me at Hilary2@aol.com

Researching Marcus and Henriette/Henrietta TUSKA:came to USA about 1848 #general

Hi all,

As I work on locating death records and cemetery locations for my
family, I have run into a bit of a problem. I can not find any
records for my great-great-greats, Marcus and Henriette/Henrietta
Tuska. They came to the States in about 1848, and all of their
offspring are interred in Salem Fields Cemetery in NY. I did find a
newspaper obituary for Marcus dated July 1871, but no mention of his wife at
all nor where he was to be buried.. There are no death records
(or anything close to them) that pop up in a Steve Morse search for them
or my great-great grandfather's first wife (Wilhelmina Tuska nee Rosenbaum),
though per Census mortality report she died in 1870. Salem Fields
claims not to have them, and I don't know how to proceed to try to
track down records and/or their final resting spot. I did try contacting
Temple EmanuEl (the Temple the second generation belonged to in NY City)
and they said they could not help.

Thanks for your help in advance,

Hebrew/Yiddish translation needed #general

Janis Quaile <jfquaile166@...>
 

Good evening,

I found an old Ketubah and think it belonged to either my grandparents
or parents. Possible names are Smoger/Smagarinsky,
Kasanofsky/Kolmetzsky, Samuels, Smoger.
Grandparents were married in NYC in early 1900's and parents were
married in Philadelphia about 1936. Would love to know exactly who
the couple is, actual dates of marriage, witness (if any) names.
Basically, since I am unable to read Hebrew or Yiddish, any
information will be appreciated.

Ketubah is found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate number is 15385.

Thank you,

WEIL, Eschwege to Capetown and Dessau; #germany

Reuven Mohr
 

Dear GerSIG,

a new branch opened up on my WEIL tree lately, and FTJP has no results:

Heinrich WEIL, born 29 Oct 1845 in Frankenthal, Palatinate, my
great grandfather's brother, had a family unknown to me 'till this week.

He married Henriette KATZENSTEIN, (b. 20 Feb 1849 in Eschwege) and
they had children Eduard (b.1876 in Ludwigshafen) and Oscar/Oskar
(b.1877 in Ludwigshafen). In 1878 they moved to Eschwege, Hesse, where
Ernst was born in 1880; Ernst moved back to Mannheim in 1899.

Eduard married Hedwig GOLDMANN (b.1884 Eschwege) and they had sons
Edgar and Alfred. Both later emigrated to Capetown, SA.

Oskar/Oscar married Eva LEVY (b.1891 Dessau) and they had Susi Amalie
and Paul Helmut. In 1921 the family moved >from Eschwege to Dessau.

I'd appreciate any additional information about this family.

Regards, Reuven Mohr Jerusalem, Israel reuven.mohr@gmail.com

Hi All,

For those of you with an interest in the tombstone photos >from the
Mattersburg Jewish cemetery that are being posted on the Austrian Jewish
Museum blog, I have started to annotate the ones of the people that Yitzchok
Stroh and I have researched. Other people have begun to post comments too.
