Cimerman from Poland #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

A well known internet auction site has an Iranian passport issued in 1939
for an Israel Cimerman, a professor of chemistry, born in Poland February 16,
1907. His parents are listed as Leizer (born 1876) and Gisia (born 1887) both
from the town of Berezno, Poland.
The passport is in Farsi and French.

I have no interest in this financially. If someone is researching this
family contact me for additional information.

Carol Rombro Rider
 

A well-known internet auction website has a postcard depicting the famous
Yiddish playwright Jacob Michalovich Gordin on the front. Jacob Gordin
(1853-1909) was born in Mirgorod (also known as Novomirgorod), Ukraine.

I have no interest in this website or postcard other than to pass along
information that might be of interest to a researcher of this family.

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Friends,

I'm doing a research on the lifestyle of the Czecho-Slovak Jewish
Community between 1918 and 1938. I'm particularly interested to
learn something about the religious organization of the Czechoslovak
Jews during that period.

I would appreciate if you could point me to some pertinent Web links.
Could be in any of the following languages: English, French, German,
Spanish, Hungarian or Slovak.

Please reply off-list.

Many thanks in advance and regards
Tom

GOLDFARB in USA - Seeking descendants of Yosef Yitschak #lithuania

Yehudh bn Shlmo
 

I am looking for current email addresses of direct
descendants of Pessah Rifke SCHNEIDER b.1871 in
Krekenava. She married Yosef Yitschak GOLDFARB in
1892 in Lithuania. They had 2 children Thomas and
Frank that came to America. Later they divorced and
Yitschak GOLDFARB remarried.

In America, Thomas GOLDFARB married Anna Weinstein
in 1919 and had 4 children, Charlene, Paul Grayson,
Gerald and Beverley

In America, Frank GOLDFARB married Fannie Weiner in
NY, and had 3 children Bessie, Leo and Robert.

The GOLDFARB family tree of Yitschak and Pessah is in
the FTJP. I am hoping a living relative might have
information on Pessah Rifke.

Progress on Krasnik's 19th Century records #poland

Jim & Sara Feldman <feldmans@...>
 

Progress is being made in getting the extensive 19th century
records >from Kras'nik, Poland, indexed and up on the internet. I have
completed the indexing of the LDS birth records through 1860 and
should submit them this month to JRI-PL for inclusion in the
database. That inclusion process takes a bit of time, so in the
meantime, if you want me to forward data on any particular name(s),
feel free to e-mail your request directly to me.

The Church of the Latter Day Saints (LDS) made their
microfilms in the 1970's and early '80's. Records less than 100 years
old are covered by strict Polish privacy laws and do not get moved
from the town record offices (USC) to Polish State Archives (PSA)
until they are more than 100 years old. Thus the latest possible
entries in the LDS films is the very early 1880's, and for most
towns, somewhat earlier than that.

Today, records in the PSA reach to 1904 for many towns.
To carry out Jewish Records Indexing-Poland's mission of indexing
all the Jewish records >from Poland, JRI-Poland has arranged with
the PSA to hire Polish archivists to do the indexing. Having native
speakers do the indexing is wonderfully efficient, but it does cost
modest amounts of money. Those funds are raised >from the
interested descendants >from each of the towns.

The cost of covering the quarter century >from the end of the
LDS records to the end of the current PSA records for Krasnik is
$600. To date, we have raised $420. Any contribution is most welcome,
but contributions at or above $50 will "qualify" the donor to obtain
the PSA index directly. In other words, qualified donors will receive
an Excel spreadsheet with all the names and relevant data (dates,
names, parents, mother's maiden name etc.) Such a spreadsheet often
enables you to link families and follow through several generations.

If you would like to join this effort -- we are so close to
getting it underway -- please send your contribution to:

Re: Covitz - Moston #lithuania

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

It is quite a common phenomena for families with long names to decrease them
to the last syllable of Covitz. One of my Lithuanian families, Cadykovitz
or Zadikowitz became Covitz in South Africa. Others I have questioned with
various other names have done the same.

Nathan & Mollie NEWMAN -- Bronx, NY #general

,
 

Hi genners,
I have been searching for my grandmother's sister and believe I have found
her. She is the above named Mollie Newman. Mollie and Nathan claim to have come
from "Russia", Morris in 1889 and Mollie in 1891 with three children. In
actuality Mollie came >from Berdichev (probably Katzen) Ukraine.
They eventually had 6 children. The last was Rosie, born in April 19,1900.
They appear on the 1920 and 1930 census in the Bronx. Molly died February 27,
1945 and Nathan died Dec, 29, 1947. They are both buried at Mt Hebron in the
Lodzer True Bros. plot. At the time of Mollie's death they lived on Davidson
Ave. I think Molly may have died as a result of a fall at a place called Royal
Marquis (that's what's listed as her place of death on the certificate).If
any of this sounds familiar,please contact me.
Thanks,
Carol Cohen

Re: Castle Garden Web sites #general

Martin Fischer
 

Nancy Kendrick <adamsny@...> responded to a query >from Ida & Joseph
Schwarcz <idayosef@...> about Ida's parents' arrival in the U.S. in 1923
via Ellis Island. Ida recalled her parents speaking of "Kessel Gurten" as
the generic name for the arrival point in the U.S. among Yiddish speakers.

Nancy's response listed several interesting Web sites about the history of
Castle Garden, the immigrants' entry point into New York City prior to the
establishment of Ellis Island.

Nancy listed these Web sites:

Lower Manhatten Information:
http://www.lowermanhattan.info/history/didyouknow/castle_clinton_83528.asp

The Battery
http://www.thebattery.org/castle/

Ellis Island Immigrants.org

Castle Garden, 1855-1890, by Ruby Coleman
http://www.genealogytoday.com/columns/ruby/011117.html

I would like to add to that list a site that includes a free searchable
database of immigrants' arrivals >from 1830 through 1892 via Castle Garden:

http://castlegarden.org/

It is a useful site for researching arrivals of ancestors in New York City
before Ellis Island became the entry point.

Thanks, and a suggestion for a "brick wall" #general

Sharon R. Korn <s.r.korn@...>
 

Hello,

I am writing to express my thanks for two reasons. First, I asked for help
with a View Mate translation of Hebrew on a tombstone and have had quite a
few responses, all giving basically the same meaning. Judith Romney
Wegner's explanation was especially detailed. Thank you to all who wrote.

I also wish to thank those who responded to my request for help in finding
my great-grandfather's grave, which I have tried to do for a very long time
without success. Allan Jordan's excellent suggestion seems to have broken
down my "brick wall," and I would like to repeat it here for the benefit of
those who may be having a similar problem. My great-grandfather's
Americanized name (Jacob JACOBSON) was extremely common, and his age was not
definitively known (apparently even to his children). Allan suggested I
look for my great-grandmother. As it happens, I am the descendant of the
first wife (Rochel OSSUR), so I hadn't been making any effort to pursue the
second wife. However, my great-grandmother died without immigrating, and it
was logical (though I hadn't thought of it) that the children of the second
wife (Bella JACOBSON) would choose to bury their parents together. Getting
the death certificate of the second wife, which had her husband's name on
it, and calling the cemetery have led me to conclude with a high degree of
certainty that I have finally found the right person. Of course, I have
requested the death certificate to be 100% sure. This approach might be
helpful to others in a similar situation.
