WEINER/FARBER from Zhytomyr/Kiev #general

Janette Silverman <jsilverman@...>
 

Bennie FARBER and Bessie (Pessie) WEINER >from Zhytomyr (Zhitomir) or
Kiev had 4 children: Minne FARBER born in 1879 (married Sam MOLDAWSKY
and we have tracked their descendants - they were my ggparents), Meniche
FARBER, Moshe FARBER and Sarah FARBER. Sarah was born in 1869 and
married Sam KAMINER (thanks to those genners who so helpfully responded
to my last inquiry, we are tracking their descendants) -I am clueless
about Moshe and Meniche - they were presumably born between 1869 and
1879. perhaps a few years earlier or later - there may have been other
children although I don't think so. I have looked through every Ellis
Island "Meniche" listing to see if any were joining relatives in NY or
going to live in NY near any of the relatives whose addresses we know, I
have looked through [fee based online datatbases] for people with that first
name, also looked at the JewishGen data base for Farber & Weiner to see if I can
find a record of their births, deaths, marriages, etc - I am coming up
with nothing - any suggestions?

Thanks

I am seeking Prof. Phillip SHERESHEVSKY (or a member of his family).

AFAIK, he was connected to the newspaper HaDoar at one point.

I was told that he sat with a cousin of mine, David Epstein, many years
ago, and they figured out how the two families were connected (my gg grandmother
was a Shereshevsky who married Rabbi David Epstein (nee Bergman).

The family lived in Taurage for a while, were her father Rabbi David
Shereshevsky was a rabbi.

REICHER Families of Cleveland #general

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

I am researching various REICHER families of Cleveland and have reason to
believe that all of the various families are in fact related. The families
would have started immigrating to Cleveland +/-1880 and they came from
Austria-Hungary. Unfortunately, I don't have anything more specific then
that, though I suspect they were >from the vicinity of Krakow.

I would greatly appreciate hearing >from anyone who is related to or
researching any REICHER >from Cleveland.

Thanks for your time and please respond privately.

I wish you all a lovely week.

Citizenship Papers - Documentation #general

Jan Groshan <jangro@...>
 

Having a copy of my father's certificate of derivitive citizenship papers I
was able to request a copy of the paperwork submitted in connection with the
issuance of that certificate. It took one year to get the copies, but when
the package came it was almost two inches thick of all kinds of priceless
information. That was in 1995-1996. Since then, when requesting copies of
naturalization papers......declaration of intent.....petition for
naturalization......I have only received one or two pages. Would there be a
difference between a certificate of derivitive citizenship and the
documentation required to obtain it and the declaration of intent and
petition for naturalization? Is it possible that I am requesting the wrong
thing? I think there was a form I completed to get the information for my
father, but I no longer have a copy of it and I'm not certain what it was
called. I would love to get copies of the documentation submitted by other
family members, if possible. Any clues?

Dear Genners,
I received, by error, some informations ( year 1919) about Israel NADEL,
born about 1886 in Odessa (Russia) married with Rose BARNESTEIN (perhaps
wrong spelling ?).
They had 3 children and were living in London.
Any clue?

Hello,
If I refer to the book "Where once we walked", the village Brodnica
in Poland had a tiny population of only 56 Jews before WW2. Moreover
this book, which usually gives all different names of a village or
city, does not give "Strasburg" as a variant for Brodnica.
You have also to know that between 1871 and 1918, Alsace was a part
of Germany, so if your ancestor arrived to the US during this period,
it is normal that he declares himself as coming >from Germany.
Conclusion: forget about Poland and concentrate on STRASBOURG
(Bas-Rhin) in nowadays France. There was and still is a large Jewish
community in this big city and ALEXANDRE is quite a common surname
among Alsatian Jews.
Good luck !
