The Sandys Row Synagogue is quite famous and flourishing in the 19th
century , so my guess is that you have read it correctly.

I recently found out that Harris is the common name given
to many people who carried the Hebrew name Mordechai.
Please tell us how you found that out -- it is news to me! I have
zillions of Mordechais in my family, including one of my sons, but
none of them is a "Harris." They are all Marks -- except for a
cousin named Martin. (Mark is in fact a standard English soundalike
for Mordechai) .

Harris is a much used English sound-alike , but not normally for
Mordechai. It is the standard sound-alike for the Yiddish name
Hirsch/Hersh/ Herschel (which means stag and indicates that the
ancestral Hebrew name was almost certainly Zvi (pronounced Tsvee)
-- which is Hebrew for a stag.

Now if the Mordechais in your family had a double barreled name
Mordechai-Tsvi, or Mordechai-Hersh, I could understand them being
called Harris -- but that would represent the name Zvi or the
Hersh and not the name Mordechai..

Brooklyn, NY Probate Court look-up needed #general

Monica Talmor
 

I need a one name look-up at the Brooklyn Probate Court, on someone who died
40 years ago. I called the court today and I was told that they don't do
telephone inquiries, and a search via a written request costs $90! I can
return the favor in New Haven or other Connecticut town. Please respond
privately. Thank you.

Hamburg Emigration - Links to your Roots advice needed #general

Bubby <yeruchem18@...>
 

Has anyone successfully received records >from the website Hamburg
emigration - Links to Your Roots? Did you feel it was worth it?

I ask because I noticed that the date of emigration is absent, which is one
of the most important pieces of information to help one choose which names
might be their relative.

Also,I wanted to order some records, but I noticed that the webpage that
takes the credit card information is not secure.

Any experiences or thoughts to share before I go ahead with this (if I do)?

New Brunswick, NJ Cemetery Found #general

Rochelle Gershenow
 

Thanks to all who suggested how to find the cemeteryin New Brunswick, NJ. I
had tried all the traditional ways of looking it up including the IAJGS
cemetery project site but to no avail. That is why I sent out my email to
the list. The cemetery was found through the extraordinary help of someone
who worked at a nearby cemetery, and we were able to visit it this weekend.
For anyone who might be interested the cemetery is Poile Zedak--it has a
Workman's Circle section, a Sephardic section, and a Poile Zedak (historic
synagogue in New Brunswick, NJ) section.

MODERATOR NOTE: Now that you have found the cemetery, please report it for
inclusion in the IAJGS cemetery database. Of course, if you can muster the
effort, JewishGen would welcome information on the burials there for the JOWBR.

Hi all
An answer to recent enquires I have been making about a person on my
family tree provided me with a (5-digit) German telephone number from

London families: HOLRIE / ABRAHAMS / BRAHAM / POULTON / STERN / BROOKS #unitedkingdom

Yeruchem & Fraida Cohen
 

Today, I received the death certificate, Hannah HOLRIE, who died at the age
of 63, in 1896. The address of Hannah and her widower, Harris HOLRIE, at
the time was 37 Yalford Street, Mile End.

I also received the marriage certificates of two of their daughters:

In 1889, Anna HOLRIE, age 21, spinster, tailoress, married Lewis ABRAHAMS,
age 23, bachelor, master tailor. His father's name was Joseph ABRAHAMS, also
a tailor. The wedding took place in the "Sandys Row Synagogue" (that first
word may be wrong; it's hard to read) and was witnessed by (can't read the
first name) STERN and Aaron BROOKS. (In the 1890 and 1900 censuses, Lewis
and Anna are listed with the surname of BRAHAM)

In 1890, John POULTON or POULTOW, a bachelor marine engineer aged 25 and son
of Alfred POULTON or POULTOW, who was a shipwright, married Minnie HOLRIE, a
25 year old spinster. This couple was married in the Register Office.

It is interesting to me that both brides and grooms shared the same
residence at the time of Marriage, My guess is that the reason for this is
that they had a religious marriage that was later registered in the General
Register Office when they were already living together.

Another curiosity, since I am unfamiliar with British naming customs. Is
POULTON or POULTOW a Jewish surname in Britain? I can ask the same about my
relative's name, because I have absolutely no idea where the name HOLRIE
came >from as well. I recently found out that Harris is the common name given
to many people who carried the Hebrew name Mordechai.

Comments and opinions are welcome!
