Abraham Weinstein-Sarah Packter / Any descendants? #lithuania

lehrer
 

Hello,

I am looking again for any possible descendants or relatives or news
concerning:
ABRAHAM WEINSTEIN and his wife SARAH PA(C)KTER.

Please read on for more details:

ABRAHAM WEINSTEIN was born in Lindburg, Russia.
ABRAHAM WEINSTEIN was probably the son of WEINSTEIN Aron and HUREVITZ
Rose.

SARAH PA(C)KTER was born on 25 Dec 1868 in Triseek (Russia/Lithuania)
and was the daughter of PAKTER Jehudah Leib \ Levie (born 12 Mar 1845
in Telz, Lithuania and died on 19 Jan 1916 in Amsterdam, The
Netherlands) and SCHEEN Hinde (born in 1844 in Triseek, Russia.
SARAH died on 14 Mar 1901 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands).

SARAH moved to The Netherlands and immigrated later on 24 Aug 1908 to
Ellis Island (USA).

SARAH PA(C)KTER married Abraham WEINSTEIN on 7 Oct 1893 in Manhattan,
New York.
The name of Person performing the Ceremony: PERETZ CANTOR of Tifereth
Achim Anshe Dinaburg (Residence: 10 Lewis Str).

The date of her marriage appears to have been before her immigration
of 21 aug 1908 according to the information I managed to collect for
the moment. She may have visited her family a few times back in
Europe.

I hope someone on the list will be able to help me find another clue
as to where one of the mentioned names may have ended up.

Thanks alot!

JAROSCHEWSKY [Odessa > UK with link to Berlin] #germany

Jan <janice.rees@...>
 

I am trying to research a grandfather's family with the
name of Joseph JAROSCHEWSKY, who, on coming to England around 1907, changed his
surname to ELKIN. The family story tells that Joseph came >from Odessa, Ukraine.

A contact in Odessa has kindly transcribed a letter for me and it
includes other names. These are:

Leva, Haim Leiba, Minochka and Zalman, Yul'ka, Masha, Valya, Lazar.
These appear to be members of the JAROSCHEWSKY family. Also the letter
sends regards >from the KAGANOVICHE and LEIBZON families who were
obviously good friends.

Joseph had two brothers Isidor and Ivan. Isidor was a bookstore keeper
[*** in Berlin ***] around 1928/1929. Isidor wrote to Joseph with a view to
setting up a library in his apartment, but we have no way of finding out
if that ever happened.

Joseph (using the surname ELKIN) married Ada Elizabeth Cutriss CLARK in
1922 at the Hackney Registry Office. Witnesses were Matilda BALLARD and
M. ISAACS. The marriage certificates states that Joseph's father was
John. The address at the time of marriage was 90 Brighton Road, Stoke Newington.

If anyone can help me trace this family or if you have come across it in
your own research, please contact me. Best wishes

I can add the following to the discussion on Ger-SIG. The name ULLMANN
was already well-established amongst German-speaking Jews in Bohemia and Moravia
in the 18th century.

Re: Surnames in Hesse-Darmstadt [ULLMANN] #germany

Stefan Rohrbacher <s.rohrbacher@...>
 

ULLMANN was and is frequent as a surname among Christian and Jewish families
alike, but not for the same reasons. As a name (or surname) of Christians,
it may go back to "U[odal]lrich", but there are other explanations as well,
and I shall not go into detail here.

As for the Jewish surname, however, it does indeed refer to the city of Ulm.
Jews were expelled >from Ulm in 1499, but later generations were very well
aware of their families' (however distant) past in that magnificent urban
center and its renowned Jewish community. In the early modern era, ULMA
or ULMO (the first as well as the last letter being an Aleph) was a surname
frequently found in Jewish communities in small towns and villages in the
Ulm-Augsburg area (Bavarian Swabia). The famous and fabulously wealthy
Simon GUENZBURG (16th century, in Guenzburg) was the son of an expellee
from Ulm, hence he and his offspring were part of an ULMA family and regularly
refered to themselves as ULMA or GUENZBURG ULMA. At that time, ULMA was
already used interchangeably with ULLMANN, and eventually the latter replaced
the former.

In the late 18th century R. Judah Loeb ULLMANN >from Ichenhausen in Bavarian
Swabia, rabbi in Hohenems in Austria, wrote a "Yihus Brif", i.e. an outline
of his ancestry. In this Hebrew document (which was published with
Aron TAENZER's "Geschichte der Juden in Hohenems", 1905) he traced the chain
of his ancestors in little towns and villages of rural Swabia back to the one
who was among the expellees of Ulm in 1499 - "and because this family once
belonged to the inhabitants of Ulm, they call themselves ULMA to this very
day". Moreover, he refered to a (non-Jewish) chronicle of the city of Ulm,
obviously in the possession of the family, which mentioned this persecution.
Even more importantly, he pointed out that this Jewish family was using a seal,
the form of which perfectly resembled the coat of arms of the city of Leipheim,
which was part of the territory of Ulm - in other words: Heraldry was offering
additional evidence of the noble and ancient origins
of [*** this particular family ***] in medieval Ulm.

Indeed there are several epitaphs of members of the ULLMANN families in
the Jewish cemetery of Kriegshaber, near Augsburg, which show precisely this
coat of arms (17th/18th century). The same coat of arms can be found on several
torah shields (tasim) that can be linked to members of the ULLMANN families
who were part of the "Court Jew" elite.

[***This is not to say that all Jewish ULLMANN families at all times and
places invariably had roots in medieval Ulm. [***]

Most, however, did, while some others, at a later stage, may have adopted
a surname that had "a good sound to it" - as it linked to a glorious past
as well as to wealthy and influential families of their time.

MODERATOR NOTE: This seems to contradict some earlier messages on the
subject of the ULLMANN name. We will not host a debate on the topic in
this list. For the purposes of genealogy research it seems clear that
the family name ULLMANN is not a reliable indication of the family's residence
during the past two centuries. MOD 1

Re: Reverse Lookup of Name #general

One clue might be to look at the scanned image of the manifest, and read who
he/she was supposed to be going to in America - it's usually listed out near
the end of the line (on the second page, so you'll have to look at the next or
previous image). often, this would be a relative, complete with their address
and relationship. you can look for them at that relative's address on the next
census, and in some cases, this might be the name that they adopted.
