Searching FRIEDMAN/FREEDMAN/FREEMAN/COHEN/ROSENBERG #lithuania

monicamcmullin@mac.com
 

Hello Everyone,

I have very little to go on in tracing my grandfather's place of origin.
Some family thought he was >from Poland, some thought Lithuania. On all
UK censuses, he stated that he was a German National, so I need to keep
an open mind about his homeland & have posted messages on other SIGs also.

His name was Louis/Lewis (Yahuda Arye Lieb) FRIEDMAN/FREEDMAN/FREEMAN.
The family name has evolved in this order. His MC & MA certificates
tell me that his father's name (my gt grandfather) was Tobias/Tobiah
FRIEDMAN. Both father & son were Hawkers. Tobias seems to be an unusual
name.

Louis FRIEDMAN 1st appears in Leeds, Yorkshire UK, in April 1890, when
he marries his 1st Russian born wife Rachel nee SIMON.
By 1893, they had settled in Liverpool & had the following children:-
Daniel (Gedaliah) born Leeds 1891. Also known as Dal, Darley, Dave.
Hyman (Chaim) born Liverpool 1893. Also known as Harry.
Nellie (Hebrew name unknown) born Liverpool 1894. Also known as Helen,
and Lillian.
Samuel (Schmuel) born Liverpool 1896. Also known as Syd
Elias (Hebrew name unknown) born Liverpool 1898. Also known as Eli
Isaac (Hebrew name unknown) born Liverpool 1900. Also known as Jack

After Rachel died in 1904, Louis FRIEDMAN married my grandmother,
Russian born Rebecca nee COHEN & formerly COHEN. No marriage records found.
It is possible that Rebecca COHEN already had one, or possibly two
sons to her 1st husband, an unknown COHEN. Abraham FREEDMAN appears on the
Liverpool 1911 census born in Russia aged 13. Also, records of the death of
a Jacob FRIEDMAN in December 1907, aged 7 months on DC but, cemetery
records say 7 years, with no birth records found.

Rebecca COHEN, she died in April 1911 after giving my grandfather two
sons:-
Teri (Tzvi) born Liverpool 1905. Also known as Edward, Teddy.
Harry (Hebrew name unknown) born Liverpool 1907. Also known as Henry.

After Rebecca nee COHEN died, my grandfather married another Russian
widow, Rosa GREENBLATT formerly YANKELOVITCH.
Rosa already had one daughter Betsy YANKELOVITCH/KELOVITCH.
They had one daughter together: Eva (Hebrew name unknown) born
Liverpool 1914.
I've found no other family for my grandfather & so I've been researching
the 2 witnesses to his 1st marriage, Morris COHEN & his wife Becca nee
BROMBERG were both >from Germany. Morris ROSENBERG & his wife Rebecca
nee TAYLOR, who according to their naturalisation records, were >from -
Chotel (but the name could be mis-transcribed) in, or near Kovno Guberniya.
Morris COHEN lived next door to my grandfather in Copenhagen St in
Leeds on the 1891 census & my grandfather lived with Morris ROSENBERG at
37, Back Byron St in Leeds when he married Rachel nee SIMON. My gut
feeling is that my grandfather is connected to either or both of
these two witnesses, albeit, that they were his guardians perhaps >from
the same homeland.

I have found the death of a 72 year-old Tobias FREEDMAN in Dublin in
1902 & I'm currently researching him, with no luck so far. No Nat Records
or shipping records have been found for my grandfather & he remains a
mystery.

I would love to hear >from anyone who has any of these names.

Thank you,

KINSLER/KINCLER--KITTY? #france

Ann Linder
 

Thank you to Linda and Barbara on your feedback re KINSLER/KINCLER.

KINSLER is not an uncommon name and to the best of my knowledge there
are only 2 variations of it. I believe that one marriage for a KINSLER
/KINCLER daughter that you sent to me Barbara is a valid one.

I am doing a very difficult search for another daughter, who may in
fact not actually be a KINSLER daughter, because I do not have enough
info to base this on.

This is what I have:
I am in search of a record of a woman, her husband and their son Andre
who moved >from England to France & perished in the Holocaust. Andre
may have been born in France.
Her name may be Kitty but she may have used a Yiddish name on her
ID papers
.
I do not know her husband's given name nor her married name, and I was
hoping to learn what it was >from a deportation record.
Important: her maiden name may have been KINSLER/KINCLER, and that
is the only clue I have.
She was likely born in Poland, and would have been married in the
1930s,before 1938

Feel free to suggest I not pursue this search at this time because
of too few facts!

Today I spent several unsuccessful hours scouring the list at
http://mortsdanslescamps.com/monde.html because there does not seem to
be a search function.
It looks to me like the site lists those victims who lived in France
and were born elsewhere. Is that correct ? (I am not fluent in
French but can read a little)
I looked at every entry for every female that had a maiden name
listed. no luck.

I have checked Holocaust records on JewishGen also.
I am posting this on the French SIG also.

Wimpels (Torah Binders) from the Yeshiva University Museum Collection #germany

Karen Franklin
 

Yeshiva University Museum is researching its collection of wimpels
(Torah binders), and is hoping to enlist the help of family historians
in identifying the original owners and histories of the objects. The
project could be of great interest to genealogists tracing their families.

The custom of fashioning a decorative Torah binder >from the cloth used
to swaddle a baby boy at his Brit Milah (circumcision) is found mostly
in German, Bohemian, Alsatian and some Swiss communities. The
decorated wimpel is brought to the synagogue at the time the boy is
about three years old, and wrapped around the Torah. The practice
continues today in a few communities.

Several of the wimpels in the collection came to the museum through
Jewish Cultural Reconstruction, an organization that distributed
cultural property when heirs could not be located following the
Holocaust. These objects are identified below with the designation JCR

http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/judaica/ejud_0002_0011_0_10131.html

The wimpel includes the boy's name and date of birth, and a blessing,
="may God raise him up to (a life of) Torah, marriage and good deeds."

Below is a listing of information >from 7 of the approximately 80
wimpels in the Yeshiva University Museum collection (originals are in
Hebrew). For additional information about these objects, please
contact museum curator Bonni-Dara Michaels at bdmichaels@yum.cjh.org.

INTRO - KALTER, ALTHEIMER, WEIL, and more #germany

Paula Weil
 

Hello GerSig,
I recently joined the group.
I have been researching my family's history since September 2008 and
consider myself intermediate in genealogy research. I know almost
nothing about German resources. I am an intermediate user of the
computer and the internet. I live in in rural/suburban N.Y. about 50
miles north of New York City. My native language is English. I have
a pretty good reading knowledge of French and know a little bit of German.

I have been researching the following families:

WEIL >from Ittlingen near Eppingen in Baden to NYC in about 1884. >from there
to San Francisco to New Mexico and finally to St. Louis in about 1900.

KALTER >from Mannheim to St. Louis in about 1883.

ALTHEIMER >from Darmstadt Hesse in the 1850s and 1860s to Arkansas,
Memphis, St. Louis.

EISEMAN >from Stebbach Baden in 1850s and 1860s to Philadelphia, Iowa,
St. Joseph Mo, Memphis and finally St. Louis.

STIX >from Demmelsdorf to Cincinnatti and later some to St. Louis

STEINBERG >from ? to St. Louis.

EISENSTADT >from ? to St. Louis in 1800s

MEYER >from Hanover to St. Louis --( married Eisenstadt)

MEYER >from ? to St. Louis ( --married Steinberg)

INTRO researching ARON from Storchnest/Osieczna Poznan and FRANKFURTER from Leszno Poznan #germany

Karen Gilbert <kargil@...>
 

Hello,
I've just joined this group as I am researching one branch of my
ancestors. I've been researching my family for about 9 years and most have
come >from Lithuania, Poland and the Ukraine. My great great grandmother
though was named Jessie (Yette) ARON and I am now trying to trace what I can
from her family. Her father was Benjamin ARON and her mother was Minnie
FRANKFURTER. Her immigration, documentation and all family stories indicate
that she came >from the German speaking area of Prussia.
While I've done a great deal of research with the other countries, I
have very little experience with the German speaking areas. I currently live
in surburban New York. I am English speaking and can read Hebrew although my
understanding of the language is limited to gravestones and otherwise rely
heavily on a dictionary.
I want to see if any other family can be traced >from her and whether any
other family members immigrated or even existed (i.e. was she an only
child).
The family names are:
ARON - Storchnest/Osieczna Poznan to New York in 1861 and 1876
FRANKFURTER - Storchnest/Osieczna Poznan or Lissa/Leszno Poznan

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for 2
years. I consider myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish Genealogy
research. I live in Perth Western Australia. My native language is English.
I do not read or speak any other language. I consider myself intermediate
in using a computer. My experience in using the Internet is intermediate.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of my
grandparents, of my great grandparents. My research has ended here.

My primary research goals now are to find out:
The translated name >from German to English (SEELIGSON). Alternatively
the Hebrew name for Seeligson and any research that can be followed.
Birth, Death and Marriage of Phineas Seeligson, or any Seeligson that
may be in the records. My grandfather Joseph Henry Seeligson (B: Qld
Australia 1889 - said his Grandfather was >from Germany.
How many siblings Phineas had and how many children
Shipping records of how they got >from Posnan to Manchester and how many
of the family travelled.

The family names and towns that I am researching are

SEELIGSON - Poznan Silesia 1780 - 1850 (may have been Polish? territory
then so require clarification) to England.
Phineas Seeligson - Book Hebrew Israelite Jew by Author David Mossenson
records Phineas as a "Synagogue Official" took his son Henry my GG
Grandfather (Born abt: 1829 Poznan) to Manchester (no year stated) where
he became a General Dealer.
Great Grandfather Henry was born in Salford Manchester England 1860.
(GG Gfather Henry was in Bailey Prison Salford serving 9 months for
receiving stolen goods)

On Viewmate, http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=16145

I have posted some pieces of a larger marriage record for translation.
I believe the script is Slovakian. I have typed on the image some
directions and indications of what I would like translated.

The marriage record is that of:

Groom: Joseph "Jossel" Lajos BLUM; born: Szedliske.
(Son of Shimshon / Simon / Samson BLUM and Gu"tela / Gitel KLEIN)

Bride: Tzirel / Cirl / Czili KAUFMAN; born: Tot Kajnya / Slovenska Kajna
(Daughter of Mordechai/Mor/Maj/Mark KAUFMAN(N) and Mindel HERSCHKOVITZ
/ HERSKOVICOVA)

If anyone knows this family, please get in touch.

Thank you in advance.

Actually, I'm not sure I would want my cousin (or anyone else) to get access to
my divorce papers.For genealogical purposes, wouldn't it be enough just to know
that the marriage ended in divorce?
