re Italo Svevo of Trieste #general

I originally wrote: "How/why does a writer chose their special nom de plume?
That is a question I pondered on when I discovered today that the real name of
Alberto Moravia, the Italian novelist and writer, was actually PINCHERLE."

Jules Levin replied: "You may add to the puzzle the Italian Jewish writer Italo
Svevo >from Trieste. His real name was Schmidt. Trieste, part of Austria, seems
to have been an entry point into Italy for Ashkenazi Jews."

I admire the works of Italo Svevo that I have heard broadcast but apart >from my
basic general knowledge - Jewish - Trieste - James Joyce - nom de plume - I
have never seriously looked into his background.

Imagine my surprise when I read this: " Italo Svevo born in Trieste .... a
well-to-do Jewish family as one of seven sons of Francesco and Allegra SCHMITZ.
Svevo's mother, Allegra ***MORAVIA***, came >from an Italian Jewish family of
Trieste; his father was of German descent, the son of an Austrian customs
official.

We seem to have hit on a literary MORAVIA cluster in that part of the world.
Sorry, I made a stupid slip yesterday - it was obviously Alberto's PINCHERLE's
{aka Moravia} paternal grandmother who was a MORAVIA, not his grandfather!
Michael Bernet and Nick Landau both corrected me. Thanks

So as well as the all-round gifted PINCHERLEs we now have to reckon with the
literary genes of the MORAVIA family.

I am beginning to wonder if MORAVIA was an Italianisation of MORAWETZ or a
related name. Surely there must be some family trees around - it is not that
long ago?

Town Help- Lissa, Breslau, Krisehland, Bohlxxx? of the mid-1800's #general

BRENERDA@...
 

I posted on this about six months ago. Maybe there are some new ideas out
there.

The person whose birth town I seek to identify is Lena HOFFMAN CLARKE
(1849-1922). She cam to the United States about 1855 the daughter of
George HOFFMAN (1820-1903) and Carrie HEINIG. Carrie must have died, as
the wife of George that made the trip was Fannie LOEB HOFFMAN (1820-1913).
(The sharp among you will remember I posted for possible HOFFMAN alternative
names to find on a passenger list. Thanks for all the suggestions,
but no gold ring yet!)

I have two death certificates with town information on them. Lena's in 1922
says her birth town is Lissa, Germany. This Lissa could be two towns in
Poland now known as Leszno (Leshno) 51.51 Lat and 16.35 Lon or Lesnicia
of Deutsch Lissa 51.41 and 15.02. This I learned >from responses to a
previous posting.

The death certificate of her half-brother in 1925 (He did not provide
information for Lena) said his mother (not Lena's mother) was >from what
looks like Krisehland and in smaller print, last letters not readable
is "Bohlxxx". I am trying to identify the town. Possibly Bohland

To help tie together or confuse, George HOFFMAN was possibly (? on above
certificate after the town) in Breslau now Wroclaw, Poland 51.10 and 17.033.

What is or was Krisehland Bohlxxx given that he should be somewhat close to
one of the Lissas and Breslau.

As always, I appreciate the help I get.

Researching Ancestor: Zelda (FAIKES) SEGAL #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hi

I am trying to do my family tree on my grandfather's Faikes family. I
am trying to trace all the siblings, at least the ones i know of. I
have an obit on Jennie(Faikes)Frankel who died in Philadelphia in 1959
and it lists a surviving sister as Zelda(Faikes)Segal. Can anyone help
me find out what happened to Zelda and hopefully find any descendants
of both her and Jennie. Zelda was Born about 1889-90 and her sister
jennie in 1891.

They were born in Brest-Litovisk, which may have been both a part of
Russia & Poland depending on the time frame. My grandfather probably
the last surviving sibling is about 93 and is in a nursing home. His
name is Milton Faikes. The other siblings names I have are David &
Mark/Marco Faikes. Those two immigrated to Argentina, lived and died
there. There is also a sibling named Yankiel/Joseph and he stayed in
Poland/Russia I believe. Their parents names were Berel Faikes & Rywa
Lemberg. Please contact me if you have any information at all. I need
all the help I can get.

KUKLINSKY/LEVENTHAL/NEWMAN in Utica, NY #general

Janette Silverman <jsilverman@...>
 

Over the years I have read many postings >from genners talking about
their successes, which generally energize me to start looking harder at
those seemingly dead ends I encounter in my research. Today I had an
amazing encounter that I want to share. I have been searching for quite
a while for my partner's family. We started with very bare bones
information - there were three Jewish boys, brothers with the last name
of Clinton who were orphaned around 1908 in Canada (although they had
been born upstate NY). Somehow they wound up attracting the attention
of a Jewish philanthropist in Detroit who brought them back to the
States. Thanks to help >from so many of you, persistence, and new
information being made available on line all the time, I was able to
find that their father's name was Samuel KUKLINSKY, their mother was
Fanny LEVENTHAL, that Fanny and her brother Abraham and Samuel all
immigrated to the US in 1893/4, that Samuel and Fannie got married
around 1894 and were living in Newburgh, NY by 1900, that one of their
sons was born in Utica, NY and another in Buffalo, NY, and that at some
point after the 1900 census their last name was changed to CLINTON. I
was unable to find any earlier information beyond that - although I
tried to find additional immigration, marriage, naturalization and birth
certificates to no avail. I have also been unable to find out what
happened to either Fannie or Samuel although we do know what happened to
the 3 boys after 1910. Then, one day I wrote a note to the Jewish
Federation in Utica asking if there was anyone there who might know of
this family. I got a phone call a couple of days later >from a gentleman
living in Utica who said that he had a childhood friend whose last name
was Leventhal. His friend's elderly mother, Ann, (daughter-in-law of an
Abraham Leventhal) was still alive (and coincidentally lives not too far
from where we live in Arizona!). I wrote her a letter, she phoned me,
and said that her father-in-law had had no siblings and her husband had
had no cousins. I was disappointed, but I have hit dead ends before.
The Federation in Utica sent me a book on the history of the Jews in
Utica and although it contained information and names of lots of people,
there didn't seem to be any other Leventhals in Utica, nor were there
any Kuklinskys. Today, I got a call >from Ann who didn't remember our
original conversation (she had a stroke a while back and her memory is
inconsistent) but who wanted to talk to me about her father-in-law's
nephews named Clinton who lived in Detroit - this was my partner's
grandfather and uncles!!!! I hope to be able to visit with her next
week and to be able to gather more information then, but I was so
excited I just had to share. Ann also gave me the name of a Fanny
NEWMAN who had a few sons, one of whom was Sam - this family also lived
in Utica and were relatives of her father-in-law!!!

Thank you everyone for all the help you have given me!

Seeking descendants of Yosef GRINBERG/GREENBURG - Herta, Romania 1886 #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello All

I am seeking any and all descendants of Yosef GRINBERG/GREENBURG. He
was born in Herta, Romania in 1886. His parents were Khaim & Perel
according to Page Of Testimony. The information was submitted by a
surviving daughter(Shvartz,Khava) back in 1976. I have had someone try
and trace the whereabouts of this woman. I was told that the woman may
have died in a nursing home in Israel, and thats as much information
that could be found. I of course did not hold out too much hope since
it was submitted over 20 years ago.

I am hoping to maybe find the surviving daughters family in hopes of
getting more information on this person/ancestor of theirs who died in
the shoah. I am hoping to find a connection to my great-grandfather who
was Abraham Adolph Greenberg, who was also born in Herta and his
parents also were Khaim & Perel. So, if you are descended from
Greenberg's >from Herta-Dorohoi, Romania please contact me especially if
any of this sounds familiar.

To give you a little background Information, my great-grandfather came
to New York In 1907, married Minnie Markowitz and had six kids.

Re: Origin of PINCHERLE of Italy #general

You may add to the puzzle the Italian Jewish writer Italo Svevo >from

His real name was Schmidt. Trieste, part of Austria, seems to have
been an entry point into Italy for Ashkenazi
Jews.

I forgot to mention the most important connection! Svevo means

Searching for ancestors in Russia, pre-1895 #general

Jslevey@...
 

I have ancestors apparently >from the town Korni, located in Russia (not far
from Astrakhan, which has/had a Jewish community). They migrated to the US
(NYC) in 1890-1891. The family names I'm searching for are ROTHBERG, FLAXMAN,
LEVY and BOZES. The records on the JewishGen databases appear to be too
"recent". Anyone have any ideas as to where I might find something.
Is this a FHL type quest or might there be other ways to find records
of these families?

Re: Lauer=Levi? #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

There are 21 LAUER buried in Vienna - most appear to be of Galician origin.
Were I there, I would look at some of the graves for clues.

Knowing the tendency for name changes in Vienna, I would not be at all
surprised if they were originally either LOEWY, LEVI or variants.
These two particularly caught my eye:

LAUER-JAKUBESTIER Salomon age 55 buried 27.11.1913
Zentralfriedhof Gate 1 50-33-32A

LAUER Baby age 78!!! buried 23.05.1923 Zentralfriedhof Gate 1 52-21-7

However, checking jri-pl and the Galician pages I find 120 LAUER already listed
- mostly in the late 1800s, but there one or two >from the 1850s; so the name
change apparently took place pre the migration to Vienna.

Checking up on Yad vashem gives a good idea of the name distribution of the
victims, we remember here today - mainly >from Carpathian Ruthenia, Romania and
Galicia.

picture amongst the [H]olocaust literature which shows Hlinka guards
cutting the beard of a [C]hassidish Jew.  He was...Lippa Wolfstater a

Does anyone happen to have this photo or know of its availability

looking for something easier, if possible.)
