Hello,

As you all know, I wrote in a few weeks ago that I had started on my family
tree and discussed my father's side of the family, who had migrated to
England.

I found that according to the British census my grtgrt grandfather, Samuel
Levy (sometimes spelled Levi in the British records) was born around 1856 in
Warsaw. I now understand that there is a region (and also a province?) named
Warsaw and that he could be >from a small town within that region and/or
province. Prior to 1881 after marrying my grtgrt grandmother, Leah Caro, he
cannot be found on any census. He married Leah in 1878, in Birmingham, and
lived in Birmingham until his death in about 1896. He was a boot finisher.
I ordered a copy of the certificate of marriage registration, which states
that his father's name was Lewis Levy and that he was a peddler. I don't
think Samuel migrated with his family, as I find nothing on any census for a
Lewis Levy that would match (birth year and/or place is off).

I do know that Lewis would have to have died prior to 1887, because Samuel
and Leah named one of their sons Louis.

I have looked on Jewish Gen databases searching all of Poland but I can't
find anything that seems to match.

I'm not in a position to visit Poland right now, especially since I'm not
really sure where exactly I am looking. Does anyone have any suggestions as to
how one finds the town of origin and how one might find some type of record
of this family. I realize that the spelling could have been LEWI or LEWY in
Poland in addition to Levy/Levi.
I understand >from your description above that you are looking in the Polish
records for a "Lewis LEVI" (spelled somehow). The probability of findind a
Lewis LEVI (or any other surname) in Poland is vanishingly small. But
perhaps I have missed something in your posting.

It does seem strange that Samuel took it upon himself to anglicize the
forename of a parent who was in Poland and therefore not in need of
anglicization, but we know little of Samuel and his proclivities.

Perhaps you have already looked for more probable names, e.g. forms of
Eliezer (Lazar, Lejzor, etc), and have just not mentioned it. Not that there
is a logical track between any particular Polish/Yiddish/Jewish name and
Lewis.......

Good luck.

The obvious answer, which I'm sure you have considered and discarded for
good reasons, is that he, or earlier forebears, lived in Amsterdam before
migrating to Poland. You haven't said why this is an inadequate explanation.

There were many sfaradim in Holland after the 15th century, seeking a haven
from the Spanish Inquisition, and your family may have a heritage >from them.
But it isn't true that all Dutch Jews were Sfaradim at any time in history
-- witness the considerable representation of Yiddish in Dutch slang.

KOHN / KAHN from Volhynia gubernia #general

Bubby <yeruchem18@...>
 

Well, I am thinking that I found Louis COHEN arrival record. His Hebrew name
was Yeruchem ben Moshe Leib. His first wife (he had three) is listed as
Mary, Millie and Miriam (on her gravestone), daughter of Shlome Reuben. On
her death certificate, her father's name is listed as Reuben GORDON.

Louis and Mary came to America in 1901 after being married for one year with
their daughter, Sadie. They moved to Plattsburgh, NY, where Louis was a junk
dealer and then a painter. They went on to have two other children
together, Morris and Lena. Lena married Paul RICHMAN and they lived in the
Bronx. They retired to Florida and we don't know if they are still alive
today.

On the earlier censuses, Louis is listed as being native to "Russ/Lettish,"
and on his naturalization papers is listed Minsk as his last foreign
residence and later censuses is Russia/Minsk as his place of birth. His
birth year on the naturalization papers is listed as 1880.

I found a Jeruchem (EIDB spells it Jeroscham) KAHN (although it looks to me
like KOHN) in the Ellis Island database with an arrival year of 1900. His
age is listed as 20. His last residence looks like it says Wilna or Wilnia,
but on the next page, it lists the province of his nativity as Wilnia. the
person he is destined to go to is his "cousin," Elia GORDON (remember that
his wife's father's name was Reuben GORDON.

I would like to hear if you genners agree with me that this is most likely
the person I am looking for.

Internal Passport Database -- Update #general

Howard Margol
 

The Internal Passport Database - 1919-1940 - on JewishGen has just been
updated. Over 10,000 additional records have been added to the database. The
introduction to the database has also been updated with exciting new information
included so it is a good idea to read the introduction in addition to
searching the database.

The database now consists of over 21,000 records, including records >from the
following towns;

City of Kaunas, Jonava, Kaunas Uyezd, Panevezys, Pumpenai, Rokiskis,
Troskunai, Vandziogala and the Vandziogala area.

In addition to doing a surname search, also do a town search and you may
find records of your ancestors in a different shtetl. Internal Passport files
for Kupiskis and Skapiskis do not exist. However, if you do a town search for
either of those towns, you will be amazed at the amount of information that
will come up.

Do a town search for Rokiskis even if that is not your shtetl. You will see
an example of the wealth of information contained in some of the files.

Presently, internal passport files for the following towns are in the
process of being translated - additional records for Panevezys, as well as
records for the town of Naujamiestes. Even more exciting, work has just started
on the files for the Seinai (Sejny), Uyezd. Sejny is now in Poland but was
originally in the Suwalki District which included towns and villages that are
now in Poland and in Lithuania. All of the towns in the district are included -
Lazdijai and Kupciamiestis just to name two.

Financial support is desparately needed to keep the translation process
moving forward. I would hate to see this extremely valuable project come to a
halt, or be seriously delayed, because of a lack of funding. I am sure you have
already given to this, or other worthy projects, but I hope you can see your
way clear to give just a little more. Donations by USA or Canadian citizens
is fully tax deductible.

R' Yoel MOSKOWITZ of Shotz #rabbinic

Yossi Mund <pymund@...>
 

On 2006.08.07, under the subject "FRIEDMAN, HALPERIN, HALBERSTAM,
MOSKOWITZ," B. Klang <bribrukla@yahoo.com> asked for information on:

MOSKOWITZ - Rabbi Yoel MOSKOWITZ, who was a rabbi in the town of
Shatz.
There were two rabbis with this name. I assume you mean the first
Rabbi Yoel, because the second, his grandson, though he was born in
Shatz (or as it is pronounced by his descendants, Shotz) never acted
as rabbi there, to my knowledge.

The first Rabbi Yoel MOSKOWITZ of Shatz was the son of Rabbi Chaim
of Satnov, son of Rabbi Yosef of Yampol, son of the Maggid, of
Zlochov (Zloczow), Rabbi Yechiel Mechil. He was the son of Rabbi
Yitzchak of Drohobycz.

Rabbi Yoel MOSKOWITZ's mother is often said to have been the
daughter of Rabbi Mordechai of Neshchiz. His grandson, the second
Rabbi Yoel, said that he never heard that his great-grandmother was
the daughter of the Rabbi of Neshchiz, and he certainly would have
known if it were true. Yitzchak Alfasi, in HaChasidut, wrote that
Rabbi Yoel was the grandson of the rabbi of Neshchiz but later
retracted.

Rabbi Yoel married Miriam Chaya, the daughter of Rabbi Meir (the
second) of Premishlan (Przemyslany).

I know of two of his sons, Rabbi Mordechai Yosef Moshe of Sulitze
and Rabbi Meir of Shatz.

Rabbi Mordechai Yosef Moshe MOSKOWITZ married Feiga, a descendant
of Eidel, daughter of Rabbi Shalom ROKEACH of Belz. Rabbi Mordechai
Yosef Moshe's son, Shalom, married his uncle Meir's daughter,
Shlomtza. He became the Shatzer rebbe of London. He had many
children, including most of today's Shatzer rebbes, such as those
of Ashdod, Jerusalem, etc.

Rabbi Meir MOSKOWITZ married Dinah, daughter of Rabbi Yitzchak RUBIN
(a descendant of the Rabbi of Ropshitz/Ropszice) and Eidel, daughter
of Rabbi Shalom ROKEACH of Belz. After Dinah's death, Rabbi Meir
married Vita.

Rabbi Meir had several children >from both marriages. Among them are
Shlomtza, mentioned above, >from his first marriage, and Rabbi Yoel
from his second. Rabbi Yoel married Miriam Chaya, daughter of Rabbi
Shalom MOSKOWITZ above. He lived in London, Montreal, Canada and in
Jerusalem after Miriam Chaya's death. He had three children, all
living.
