Hi,

Abraham GREENSTONE, born c. 1884 in Leeds, the son of Hanoch/Genoch/Henry
GREENSTONE or GREENSPAN b. c. 1850 or other various spellings, born
in Latvia or Lithuania. His brothers were Max KASSEMOFF b. c. 1860 d. 1939

to avoid conscription in Russia.

He married Mary FINESTONE (SHUSTER) and possibly Etty SEGELIN.

Judith MILLER and Helen SCHELEFF posted stuff connected to Abraham
GREENSTONE on MyHeritage. I dont have access to MyHeritage but hope that
either of these ladies read JewishGen/LitvakSIG emails, or someone
who knows them could please forward my email to them.

Thanks in advance.

ViewMate translation request - German - Peter Reinitz in Moravia. at last! #austria-czech

omri@...
 

Dear Group,

I think that at last I managed to solve one of my highest brick walls which
is bothering me since I (and my late father before me) started to research
my Hungarian roots.

For years I have been trying to find the connection between Moravia where my
GGGGF Peter REINITZ came >from to Hungary around 1800. Finally I think I have
managed to break the brick wall. In the "Hranice Book of changes in land
holdings" I found several pages describing changes in holding of a house in
Hranice relating to Peter REINITZ. It seems that Peter or his family had a
strong connection to Bonyhad. Later or in parallel he lived in Nagykanizsa
(Canisha/Canisa). I am posting two parts of a short document signed by a
medical Doctor. I would very much appreciate a translation of this document
which is posted here:

Beaver County Pennsylvania. Criminal Archives #usa

Jerry Zeisler <jzeisler@...>
 

Hi,
According to a newspaper article, my great-uncle, Alexander Zalay
ZEISLER, was arrested in Rochester, Pennsylvania for swindling around
early April 1890. The article notes that he went under the name of H.C.
Sawyer. I'm trying to find where the arrest and court records might be
kept, and if there is online availability to the records? I've searched
for the Beaver County criminal archives for the period but can't seem to
locate the right place. Wondering if anyone can point me in the right
direction? Thank you!

Hello,

Among my parents' books, I found reference to a Klaus ROTHHOLZ of Breslau.

I believe that he may have married Margot PINKUS in New York at the
beginning of the 1940's.

Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
