WEINBERG in Starokonstantinov #ukraine

Nancy Weinberg <na_weinberg@...>
 

Hello Genners, I am researching my husband's family
Nissan and Pearel WEINBERG who arrived on the Dresden
in Aug, 1893 >from Russia. They had 9 children; their
youngest, Anna Dresden WEINBERG, born at sea. She
married Neil ELLENOF and took the first name of
Dresden as an adult. I have had little luck in
finding much about Morris, Ben, Charles. They
started a dress firm of Weinberg and Weinberg. Later
the name changed to Weinberg and Alpern. Any
connections out there?
I would like to find more about their life in
Russia. Thanks for any info you can provide. Look
forward to meeting you in NYC

Bertha SHAPIRO-SCHAPIRO #general

Looking for the family of my grandmother's sister: Bessie-Bertha SHAPIRO or
SCHAPIRO, nee SCHWITZ, daughter of Gittel and Yossel SCHWITZ. She married
Osias-Yehoshua [in Hebrew] and as far as i know they had one son Isiu-Isidor.
All were born in Bukovina, Austro-Hungaria.

I found in Ellis-Island passenger arrivals - and I am not sure -
Bertha SCHAPIRA that came >from Czernowits, to New-York, US in May 1915. She was
then 40 years old - so she was born on 1875. She came with her son
Isidor, that was then 16 years old. so he was born in 1899.
It is mentiomed that she came to her husband that was already in New-York, USA.
I also have few letters that Bertha wrote in Yiddish to my aunt in
Palestin-Israel during the years 1947-1953.

I have by now only one letter translated to Hebrew - and Bertha wrote
there that her son is married, and work very hard 14 hours a day.
May be I found that Bertha passed away on Oct. 1962, and Osias on Dec.
1951. I found those names buried in Mount Zion Cemetery one near the
other by the society of Wishnitza.
For any information I really thanks in advance,
Michal.

67-Marker Y-DNA Match! #dna

JULFALK@...
 

Just some good news. I recently found a FALK family thru DNA
teating, who match exactly on a 67 marker test of the Y chromosome.
It was in fact a stroke of luck. I saw a person's name, FALK, in a
publication and I wrote him and after exchanging some prliminary
information, I asked him if he would be willing to be tested. He
said yes and we began with a 12 marker test and gradually expanded
to 67. I have met him and his family and a brother and his family.
They are wonderful people, what else? So far, it's the only exact
match I have in my FALK Family Surname Group at Family Tree DNA. I
recommend establishing a family surname group. If nothing else, it's
a place to store your DNA sample.

The name is known to me in my research into the Jews of South West Africa,
soon to be published. Give me a few days to get hold of my copy of the
manuscript, and will let you know. Although I don't know if this will match
your Liverpudlian family, I will check it out.

SUBJECT: MR. JOEL BINNES OF LIVERPOOL (UK)

Dear fellow SIG members

My uncle Mr. Joel Binnes of Liverpool(UK) spent nearly two years as a 22
year old in South Africa between the years 1922 to 1924.

I'm wondering if there is anyone in South Africa who knows anything
whatsoever about his stay.Being 75 years ago it's going to be hearsay or
something like that.

All I know is that he worked for relatives which are likely to have been the
Brodie family who established the Plate Glass company in Cape Town.

Wonder if Joel needed an entrance Visa and if so where I might find details
of it.

For further details of my family please refer to my posting on SA SIG
Digest 20/08/2006

Seeking family of Shana Ita GRINBERG #general

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

My maternal great grandmother was a Shayna Ita GRINBERG. She married my
great grandfather, Leizer SAFIRSTEIN (or a variant of that name) circa
1868. Their first child - Michel or Mikael - was born in Miloska, Poland
in 1869. Leizer and Shayna had four other children: Surah (or Sarah) - my
maternal grandmother, Royza (or Rosa) born in 1871, Moshe born in 1879, and
Chana, in 1881.

I've just begun to search for my great grandmother's birth record.
Although all of her children were been born in Miloska (her husband Leizer
worked there) she doesn't appear to have been born there.

If anyone thinks he/she might be related in any way to Shayna Ita
SAFIRSTEIN (nee GRINBERG), please contact me privately.

Alfred OPPENHEIMER was born in Heilbronn Germany July 22 1909. He was

Staddtarchive 1963), p ?, Familienregister der ehemaligen juedischen
Mitburger aus Heilbronn in dem Stadtarchive, Heilbronn, which has reference
to Alfred immigrating to Israel on June 30, 1936.
