The genealogy magazine "Family Chronicle"

sent in by readers are dated ... and they have published two books
(available at their website) based on those articles: "Dating Old
Photographs" and "More Dating Old Photographs".

Other: Go to the nearest museum that has a textile collection - that is, does it
display old costumes? Ask to see the "textile curator" - they're usually
pretty helpful.

I have not viewed the books and have no financial interest in them.

Dears,

Is there anyone in Israel or somewhere else who knows something about the
GOLDMAN family living in Opole Lubelskie ares / Poland / and in such places

Re: LAREDO and TILI [should beTILCHE] from Alexandria, Egypt #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

With reference to my earlier posting on the LAREDO and TILCHE
families of Alexandria - Judith Silver has confirmed to me that I
have indeed found the correct links to her family.

I should also like to add that the TILCHE family were not new
arrivals in Alexandria and indeed Marguerite TILCHE who married Riso
LAREDO is the granddaughter of Benedetto {Baruch} TILCHE and Esther
SALAMA. Baruch was born in Alexandria, Egypt in 1810 and died there
in 1872.

Many of the Jewish inhabitants of Alexandria [who were still there in
the 1950s] have indeed a long, long history of habitation in the town
- well before the big influx of other nationals when Egypt was
developed in the late 1800s and was of course still part of the
Ottoman Empire.

I also should have mentioned that the Jewish cemetery is also still
there but in a rather perilous state - a friend recently fell into a
vandalised grave. It would be great to find Baruch TILCHE's grave.
The TILCHE family were leading lights in the Jewish community and you
can imagine that as they were there since 1810 they are related to
most of the leading Jewish families in Alexandria [and Cairo]. Judith
and her cousin will have an enormous and fascinating tree to fill in!

Hello there,

Again, I want to thank all the wonderful people who
responded to my previous posts, I've learn lots and I've
lots more to learn. My priority at the moment is to find
out where in the Old Country my GreatGrandParents Max &
Sarah Solovitzig came from.

Now one of you wonderful people (Ms Ada G.) has me
seriously looking at Lithuania, when all my life I've heard
from the family that we where Polish-Russian Jewish. Now I
may find I might be a Lithuanian Jew. This genealogy is
filled with surprises. Of course, the boundries of
Lithuanian have changed over the years, I'm sure that
confuses things. As well as for Poland and Russia.

I've been thinking about the Synagogue, Max and Sarah might
have belonged to, "Congregation Ohel Jacob Anshe Kovno."
Congregation Kovno sponsored the section at the Waldheim
Cemetery where Max & Sarah where buried.

My Questions:
Are the records of old Synagogues like, Congregation Kovno
maintained in any accessable archive? Somewhere in
Chicago, obviously.

"Name changing," I'm confused about this, the person (Ms.
Ada G.) who put me on the trail to Lithuania mentions the
names Mordkhel & Mordechai as possiblities for my
GreatGrandFather Max. Of course, the spelling of
Solovitzig is different, but I've learned that is no big
deal. I understand wanting to make your name simple for
the Anglos.
What I'd like to know is, how do I get >from the first names
of: Mordkhel & Mordechai to Max?

Sincerely, Steve Sola

Judith Silver, London UK writes: <I have been commissioned by my
cousin to try to investigate her family line >from Alexandria, Egypt.
Family members emigrated in the 1920's to Southport in the UK and a
large cluster of the family lived between the two wars in Paris.
The family names are LAREDO and TILI (unsure of spelling of
latter). She will be visiting Egypt on business in September and
wonders whether there are any traces to be found of the former Jewish
community of Alexandria.>

I have studied the diaspora of Alexandria, Egypt for many years [all
ethnicities] and the name LAREDO is familiar, but does not appear in
the telephone books of 1949 and 1953 which lists many, if not most
well-establised families - again of all ethnicites - who were living
there in that period. At the last count, pupils >from my school, the
EGC Alexandria, were living in 43 countries.

As for the name TILI - I suspect it is TILCHE - which was a very
well-known family in Alexandria with whom I am still in contact.
They were definitely living in Alexandria as late as 1953.

My suspicion that TILCHE is the correct name is confirmed by the link
you see between LAREDO and TILCHE on Alain Farhi's site: where Riso
LAREDO married Marguerita TILCHE { - 1938): http://www.farhi.org/
and had four children - Edward, Raymond, Andree and Betty LAREDO.

re traces of Jewish life in Alexandria - the Jewish community and
synagogue [Nebi Daniel] still operate but the number are down from
tens of thousands to about 10 elderly residents. The records are
excellent if you can get to see them!

Also if you have addresses, it is possible to go to the places the
families lived. Some may still be there - others have been razed to
the ground and high-rise blocks have been built on the location of a
once lovely villa and garden. The school buildings are largely still
there - certainly the wonderful English school I went to [as did a
TILCHE pupil!] and the Boys' school: Victoria College [TILCHEs
attended] and the French schools - which the LAREDOs may have
attended. I am not sure what has happened to the Jewish school
buildings - and there were quite a few Jewish Schools. The LAREDO and
TILCHE families would have sent their children to English or French
schools.

One word of caution - street names have changed - so you will need a
good driver and guide to find the location in Alexandria today!
Friends just did this and were very successful.

There is no problem finding Alexandrians - they have generally
remained in touch [via school or ethnicity links] as can be seen from
this site: http://www.aaha.ch/

Just look at the section called: Rencontres et Reunions and if you
look carefully you might see me popping up all over the place! I
think this is unique - Cairo never managed to organise a similar site
or reunion circuit.

Sadly, you are much more likely to find traces of vibrant Jewish
Alexandrians in Paris, Milan, Geneva, Lausanne, Sao Paolo, London, NY
and Israel than in Alexandria.

I've hit yet another brick wall and you genners have been so helpful in the
past, I'm hoping you can help yet again. My grandfather, Abraham MEYERSON,
came to the US in May 1904 on the SS Rotterdam. I have a copy of the
manifest and it appears he arrived alone. According to census documents, my
grandmother (Rose Bertha) and, most probably two children, Gertrude (aka
Gussie, aka Gittel) and Meyer (aka Mike) arrived two years later, in 1906.
Gertrude would have been about 2 years old and Meyer about 3 years old,
RoseBertha would have been about 28. Abraham was living in New York at the
time, so I would guess they arrived in New York as well, but the Ellis Island
database has been no help, nor has the major genealogy website. Would any of
you ingenious genners have any idea where I can turn next to find how, when
and where these three individuals came to the U.S.?
Hi,

There is an entry in Ellis Island records for Gitel Meyerson, age 9 which
says that she arrives on s/s Campania sailing >from Leverpool on May 4th
1907, arrived NY May 12, 1907. Gitel is identified under No. 29 on the
passsenger's list.

If you follow with the copy of the scanned manifest, you will noticed that
she suppose to arrive in the company of other Meyersons identified under
No's. 23, age 28 (cannot read first name), but age fits Rose Bertha
No. 24, first name not clear, age appears to be 15 or 45
No. 25, Gittel (age 9)
No.26, Benjamin, age 4
No.27, name is not clear, age 14.

Names are not clear and no additional data is provided, as all names have
been crossed out. What could go wrong, I cannot identify, perhaps Meyersons
did not show up at the sailing time, in any event, there are no annotations
listed for the entire family.

The replies were principally these:
Anyone intending to settle in Montreal would have entered Canada through the
ports of Montreal; St. John, New Brunswick; Halifax; Quebec City; St. John,
Nova Scotia; and possibly US ports, especially those in New York and Boston,
although the Great Lakes were also suggested. I was told in addition, as
admission into North America via Canada was usually less difficult than into
