Re: Deciphering an Ellis Island passenger manifest. #general

Arthur Hoffman asked about a manifest for Solomon Greenfield.
The notation 2-xxxxx and 12/3/40 refers to a request >from the INS to
verify that he entered the US legally, that is, that he appears on a
manifest. The date refers to sometime between his declaration of
intention and petition for naturalization. I would next try
ancestry.com/fold3/familysearch.org to see if they have digitized the
naturalization, and also check italiangen.org's naturalizations to see
if there is a corresponding index.

Having seen a host of conflicting data, some stating that the wife of R.
Dovid MORGENSTERN of Kotsk was named Rachel PUFELES, and others stating that
her name was Chaya Tauba GRUNWALD, and ascribing the same children to both
women, I would like to know who R. Dovid's wife and the mother of his
children actually was. Any info is appreciated.

Yalta Property Records #ukraine

Does anyone you know anything about property records for Yalta? I have an address that my family lived at >from the early 1900's to about 1940. Do property records work anything like the US? Would there be a deed? When there is sale or transfer of the property, or a mortgage, are there government records? Would they be in the town hall, or some other archive? If the property was transferred at death, is there probate or something similar?

Re: Are most Weills leviyim #hungary

tom
 

i'm not familiar with the origins of the name, but i don't think all the WEILLs share a common ancestor. which means that different individuals might have taken on that surname at different times and places, and for different reasons.

it's quite possible that some chose it as an anagram of LEVI, but i know of a few cases where immigrants just changed their names to what they *thought* were more american-sounding, such as EPSTEIN or BERCOWITZ. (i know one case of each!)

and because of the idiosyncrasies of jewish law, you might be descended >from a levite, but not be a levite. it isn't as easy, or as common, to lose levite status as it is for a kohen, but adoptions and conversions did occur, even in some of our families. for example, a child raised by a maternal uncle's or grandparents' family might have taken on their surname.

finally, there has been a genetic study done of levites, which found that the vast majority share a particular gene. you would have to inquire as to which, if any, of the popular testing services includes this marker. dna is not halakhic proof, but you might find the result entertaining.

I do find it fascinating that the hebrew letters spelling my surname WEILL are similar to those of Levi. Are there research tools or resources to determine if perhaps my ancestors going back several generations were in fact leviyim? Your thoughts are appreciated. Thank you.
