FREEMAN/ROSE London 20th Century #unitedkingdom

Nachum Tuchman
 

Dear List,

I have checked the JGFF and found many FREEMAN researchers, too many
to contact individually.

My wife's great uncle Alf ROSE (born Abraham ROSINSKY in 1905) married
Millie FREEMAN at the East London Synagogue in 1926.

Alf's brothers were Lewis (my wife's gf), Barney (born Barnett), Joe
(born Joel) and Harry (MIA in WW2).

Alf's parents were Alexander (Sender) and Sarah, nee BAYLETT/PAILET.

Hoping to connect with some mishpocha.

Harris Alexander #unitedkingdom

If you look at the 1891 census you'll find Kitty Aarenstein living with her
parents at 31 Gun Street she later marries Harris Alexander in London City
between Jan - March in 1900. The certificate reference is 1c 66.

According to Where Once We Walked, Libanfalva,
Hungary is now known as
Ibanesti (Transylvania), Romania. WOWW says pre-war
Jewish pop. was 49;
Located 101 km E of Cluj-Napoca at coordinates
46o46'/24o56'.

YadVaShem's Encyclopedia of Jewish Life Before and
During the Holocaust
says:

IBANESTI Moldavia dist., Romania. The J. pop. in
1930 was 61. In 1940
Romanian soldiers together with the Iron Guard
pillaged J. homes. The Jews
were forced to leave for Dorohoi. They were then
transported to
Transnistria.

Hope that helps.

Doug, the first one is the correct one, the old
Hungarian Libánfalva is in Transylvania.

The second Ibanesti is in Moldova (not the country but
the province in Romania), and was never called
anything else. :)

*RE: New Online Budapest Resource #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Dear Itzik and all,

Actually the search engine on page http://tarstort.bparchiv.hu/tarstort/simplesearch.html is very simple to use. One can enter any word, including place names an it will return the results found. Just press the 'indit' button.

The engine accepts the wildcard character '*', like in stein* and it will return all entries which begin with 'stein' It also accepts full phrase searches by entering the phrase with apostrophes (".."). In this manner it is possible to make constrained searches, for example for a given name and surname. If you enter a place name it will find all entries which have that string in any field.

Caveat: the search engine is diacritics sensible, thus accents have meaning. Besides, full names must be entered in the Hungarian manner, surname first, then given name, like in "venetianer tamas" For place names one has to use the Hungarian rendering, thus 'kosice' won't work but 'kassa' will.

Don't try to use the advanced search engine, it is too complicated.

Enjoy
Tom

changing name at Ellis Island #poland

Shelly Crane
 

Hello,

Thanks Mark Halpern for your post about names not being changed at
Ellis Island. What I find very intriguing is that many of us have
heard that same Bubbe meises ("stories") >from our elderly relatives.
While I do believe the names were changed after immigration by the family
themselves, why do you think many told this same story?

Perhaps we can only speculate why the immigrants wanted their children and
grandchildren to believe it wasn't their own doing, but am curious what
others think may be the reason.

I'm also curious, if this is an appropriate topic for discussion,
whether it was more of a phenomenon in the United States, or did
immigrants in other countries tell the same stories to their children
as well?

Thanks,
