I have lots of Lewins in my family tree, but they all entered the US 60
years after yours. Oh well. I can give you these pieces of advice:
1. My Lewins came >from Poland, so my guess is that your's came from
eastern Germany (the Polish part).
2. My Lewin became Levine in the US. Apparently Lewin in Polish sounds
just like Levine in English. HOWEVER, classic soundex does not group
Lewin and Levine together! So if you use soundex queries you can miss
stuff. (D-H soundex does group these properly, so you can use this
option when searching JewishGen.) Good Luck.

BERNHEIMER Families New York City 1850-1880 #usa

dreifuss1@...
 

Dear Jewishgenners,

I am interested if anyone knows of the German origins of the
BERNHEIMER families who appear in the 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880
Federal census records in New York City? There appear to be at least
two principal large households headed by wealthy clothing business
merchants. The families appear to be headed by Isaac and Isabella
BERNHEIMER and Simon and Rosetta BERNHEIMER. Their families were
large, and seemed to include siblings and servants.

My interest is whether they are connected to my BERNHEIMER family of
Schmieim, Baden Germany. Isaac Bernheimer would be very close in age
to my great, great great uncle, Isaak BERNHEIMER. The Schmieheim
Ortsippenbuch states that Isaak immigrated >from Schmieheim to America
in 1851, which is consistent with the census records for Isaac.
Isaak's brother, Henry BERNHEIM, and later my great grandfather and
his siblings emigrated to of Selinsgrove/Danville, Pennsylvania.
Their cousin was the Jewish philanthropist and American businessman,
I. W. BERNHEIM.

This relationship might be of general interest because of ties to I.
W. BERNHEIM. For me, the connection is very interesting because it
could explain my great grandfather, moving to New York >from Danville,
PA, where he first settled. My great grandfather's brothers had a
store (DREIFUSS Brothers Clothing) for many years in Selinsgrove, PA
where they brought in clothing >from New York City. Could the
clothing have come >from the BERNHEIMs' New York business?

Thanks Pete Dreifuss Burtonsville, MD <dreifuss1@comcast.net>

"Ann Rabinowitz" <annrab@bellsouth.net> wrote and interesting summary,
on May 26, 2007, about the Poor Jews Temporary Shelter Annual Report,
1907 in the JC. <<The Poor Jews' Temporary Shelter Database
<http://chrysalis.its.uct.ac.za/shelter/shelter.htm>

In order to obtain further understanding of the nature of the impact the
Shelter had on the Jews who were helped by it, a look at the 1907 Shelter
Report is in order. A synopsis of the Report can be found in the Jewish
Chronicle issue of April 12, 1907...>>

A very detailed analysis of this and most of the other annual reports,
in relation to the official statistics has been written by Prof. Aubrey
Newman of Leicester University and Dr Nicholas J. Evans, Lecturer in
Slavery Studies, WISE (Wilberforce Institute for the study of Slavery
and Emancipation) Hull is contained in the forthcoming book (now at the
printer)

JEWISH MIGRATION TO SOUTH AFRICA

Aubrey N. Newman, Nicholas J. Evans, J. Graham Smith & Saul W. Issroff.
Cape Town: JPSA (Jewish Publications – South Africa), Isaac and Jessie
Kaplan Centre, University of Cape Town. ISBN: 0-7992-2315-8

This book records the details of over 24,000 Jews who emigrated >from
Imperial Russia to South Africa between 1896 and 1914. Rather than
journeying to the United States, like so many of their co-religionists,
many migrated to South Africa and in particular Cape Town and
Johannesburg in such large scale numbers that South African Jewry is
still of a predominantly Litvak origin.
Based upon the previously unused records of the Poor Jews’ Temporary
Shelter of London, this volume looks at the personal details recorded by
the London-based charity in assisting Jews to migrate to South Africa
after 1896. The existence of the database to which this volume
represents an introduction will in itself enable closer analysis of the
demographic profile of this migration.
