Finding Morris COHEN #general

Rita
 

I have been on a seemingly impossible mission. I am trying to locate Morris
COHEN...haha or rather the descendants of.

In 1910 my great grandfather ,who lived in UK, visited his brother-in-law
Morris Cohen, who resided at 209 E99th St New York.
I have found Morris Cohen aged 45 ,residing at 209 E99th St,New York in 1910
census.
His wife is listed as Letta aged 40,they had 5 children. Abraham aged 18
Lena aged 16,Charles aged 13,Harry aged 11 & Louis aged 10.
All were born in Russia. Morris arrived in US in 1900 & his wife & family in
1905. Morris's occupation is roofer.

I have tried to find all of these people after 1910 but it seems like
mission impossible.

Is there anyone out there who have this family in their tree ?
I would like to know in what respect was he a brother-in-law, what is the
connection.
I have traced all of my great grandfathers descendants through to the
present time ,also his sister & her descendants all in UK.
However can not find them prior to UK.
Hoping the Cohen's can maybe supply some helpful information.

I strongly suspect that Cohen is not their original name as I cannot find
Immigration for any of them under the name Cohen.

Please respond privately.

Viewmate: Identify picture in New Zealand & Polish to English translation of birth document #general

Mady Land <madyland@...>
 

Hello everyone,
I've posted two items on Viewmate:

The first is a photo I found in my grandmother's album:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=15404

My grandfather Max Land(schneider), a bookbinder and his brother Charles,
ladies tailor, went >from Plock, Poland to New Zealand, in the early 1900s. I
believe Max is in the middle of this group, with black hair, bowler hat,
mustache and pipe. Does anyone know about an "Athletic Park" in Wellington,
NZ (per the sign), if it still exists, where it's located, or who this group
of men might be? I believe the sign is dated 1908, but not sure, as Max came
to New York in 1907.

The second is a birth document in Polish which I would appreciate translated
into English:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=15406

I'm looking for all possible details about Akt#219, the birth of Sura Prywa
ZYLBERSZTEIN, registered in 1867, to confirm if she is my great-grandmother
(mother of the above "Max LANDSCHNEIDER"/Aron Mordka Landsznejder of Plock.
The name has always been referred to as "Sara Silver", because the family
was in the silver business, but it could have been any variation such as
Zilberman, Zylberberg, etc. Would like to know if it is a late registration
and if the birth is actually years earlier. Also the details about parents
and witnesses: names, ages, occupations, where living etc.

Thank you so much for any details.

Dear Genners,

I've posted to Viewmate a marriage registration record - it is written in
both Polish and German. Are you able to provide the names of persons involved
in the wedding? Also any marginal notations would be helpful. Thank you.

Thank You and Success Story #general

Dear Genners,
Last week I posted a question regarding the very little information
I had about my paternal great grandmother and my grandmother's sister. I
received many replies with excellent suggestions as to how I could continue
to search and I hope I did not forget to thank each Genner personally. Since
the information has been so good I felt a public thank you was in order. In
particular the assistance I received >from Zeev Sela and Shaul Sharoni has
provided me with a success story, proving that one should never give up the
search.
This is my story: Zeev's and Shaul's efforts uncovered Pages
of Testimony given by my grandmother's sister for their brother whom no one
in the family here in the US thought lived beyond young adulthood. The POTs
confirmed that he married, had at least 2 children (one of whom also submitted
a POT for him) and provided me with his date of death, gave the names of his
parents which confirmed to me that this Pinchas is my grandmother's brother.
Also, at their suggestion I checked JGFF again for Orinin, Ukraine, and found
another researcher looking for SIPERSTEIN,contacted him and his response has
convinced me that we are family. This world can be a beautiful place.
Again, my most profound thanks to all the kind Genners who
take the time to answer posted questions and who go above and beyond to help.

KAHN = FALK #courland #latvia

Rachel Poole <rachel.poole3@...>
 

Hello

In Christine Usdin's listings for Births records. Liepaja 1871 the birth is
recorded of a Lea Genna Kahn - Father Benjamin Mother Malka Falk - There are
other births listed to these parents namely Roza & Hosias in a similar time
frame.

Do these names sound familiar to you? My great grandmother was Jane Cohen.
from her Hebrew Marriage Authorisation we know she was born in Courland
(town unknown) and her father was Bentzion/Benjamin. Her marriage
authorisation has her first name as Sheina. >from her marriage certificate
(London 1893) and death certificate (Swansea, Wales 1955) we can work out
her birth as having been about 1872/73.

I know nothing else of her life before coming to England - I don't even know
her mother's name or whether they came to England with her as searches of
the relevant census to not have Jane or her father living in the same house.

I'm hoping someone will recognise the birth listed or the Benjamin Kahn /
Malka Falk marriage so that I can either rule out this birth being that of
my ggm or investigate it further.

The other thing of interest would be any thoughts of what the English form
of Malka may be. Jane went on to have 3 daughters so I'm looking for a
possible pattern of names in our female line

R' Arieh Leib Parnes of Galicia? #galicia

Michael Waas <panthersfan27@...>
 

Hi,

I am wondering if someone who has access to Meorei Galicia by
Meir Wunder could tell me what his book says about R' Arieh Leib
Parnes? I don't have a page number, unfortunately, nor a volume
number, but a search on Google Books says that his name is
mentioned in there.

I really appreciate any help that you can provide me. This is
cross-posted on the GaliciaSIG and the RavSIG.

Re: Location of Pagol Village? #ukraine

scrybe@...
 

I received 3 very quick responses to my question about the location of
"Pagol Village", suggesting that the name may actually be Pakulš, as found
in Shtetl Seeker. This fits with the information I already have and the town
still exists in Chernihivs'ka Oblast.

I am very grateful to the respondents as well as to JewishGen for helping me
­ this will make such a difference in my next research steps.

Two films of Ukrainian towns, courtesy of Tomek Wisniewski #ukraine

steve725@...
 

Two of the twenty short films I am currently showing within my virtual
Museum of Family History might be of interest to Ukraine researchers. One
has to do with Novoye Misto (before WWII Nowe Miasto, Poland), and Olyka
(also before 1939 part of Poland), now both in the Ukraine.

The title of the film about Nowe Miasto is "Miasto: A City That Time Forgot,
1913."

In the Olyka film, based on a photo >from 1920, Tomek questions whether the
photo he uses in the Olyka film represents a wedding or funeral, but it
seems to me that there is enough evidence that it is a photo of a wedding.
The films were created by Tomek Wisniewski and are worth seeing. You can
find the link to these films and all the others on the main page I've
created for Tomek at www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/tomek/films.htm .

Enjoy!
