NYC election district vs. enumeration district #general

Ruth Hyman <ruth.hyman@...>
 

Dear Genners,
I thought I had this "down", but if I know a Manhattan address, the
assembly district, and the enumeration district (>from both 1920 and 1930
censuses), how do I determine the election district?
Thanks,

PACHTER #general

tina levine
 

I am searching for relatives with the surname PACHTER.

My great-grandfather, David Pachter, was born in
1863/4 in Siemiatycze, Bielsk District, Grodno
Gobernia. His father's name was Yisroel.

David Pachter married Rifka Botschan b. 1870 and they
had 3 children who survived to adulthood: Sureh Golde
(Sarah) b. 1893, Leibe (Louis) b. 1894 and Avraham
Nachum (Albert Nathaniel) b. 1908.

David left Siemiatycze and immigrated to the US in
August, 1907 sailing >from Liverpool to Philadelphia.
He settled on the lower east side in NYC and later
relocated to upstate New York.

I am looking for descendants of siblings or cousins of
my great-grandfather.

In particular, in the Siemiatycze Yizkor book I’ve
read about Peretz Pachter who had 4 children
(Avraham, Moshe, Shalom and Leah). I am wondering if
Peretz Pachter was a brother or first cousin of my
great-grandfather.

Please write back if you believe we are or are not
related. Please respond privately. Thank you.

Dear Cousins:

My stepdaughter is named for her mother's Aunt Annie, born in Baltimore.
The family was >from Russia, now Ukraine. Aunt Annie had an amuletic name,
"Chia Chana." Chana being the Hebrew name for Annie.
Wasn't "Chia" by any chance confused with "Ciocia"?
Ciocia is Aunt in Polish. Tiotia is Aunt in Russian

Re: Relationship between Lettish, Minsk and "Wilna" or "Wolynia"? #general

On various documents, the place of birth for the same person is listed as
1) Russia/Lettish (1910 census); I understand that Lettish refers to
Latvia
2) Wilna (last residence)/Wolynia (province) (ship manifest and supplement
to manifest)
3) Russia/Minsk (later censuses)

Minsk was declared as the place of last residence on the Declaration of
Intention.

But I am trying to figure out what possible connection there could be to
Latvia and Wilna and Minsk and was wondering what you genners think it
could
be.
Hi,

There is not too much i common between those localities, especially between
Wilna and Wolynia (perhaps typo).

Travelling restrictions within the Russia have been lifted after 1905.
Wasn't he by any chance a salesman for the "Singer" sewing machines?
Those guys were very active and extremly movable.

Russian town Ansinas #general

Plevine300
 

Hello jewishgenners.
Hope the convention is going great. I want to attend next year.

Please, if anyone is with a Russian interest group, see if the town of
Ansinas comes up.

Jacob Abraham Levine, Jakoff Avrum was >from Ansinas, Russia.
His son, Abraham Levine, born in 1895 also in Ansinas was in the United
States Army and this town was listed as his place of birth.

I've only been able to find a spelling located in Latvia. I've not been able
to find any information on this town at all. One other person reported to me
before that they are looking for the same place. No one else in the faimily
can confirm this. They just know that they came >from the "Pale of Settlement".

Where would anyone think the majority of families with this name "LEVINE"
lived?
Thank you.

Re: New York Cemetery Records #general

There are two ways of finding this information. A death certificate will
show place of burial in NYC. Also, JewishGen's JewishGen Worldwide Online
Burial Registry has a number of New York area cemeteries included either
all, or in part, in its database. That can be found, along with a great
deal of information on your search, at the JewishGen website,
http://www.jewishgen.org. Good luck in your search.

If you have enough information to get the person's death certificate
from NYC, you'll find the place of burial is listed.

My grandmother´s sister was called Bunya, in Ukraine, and while
still a child she got very ill so her parents changed her name to Alte.
In the ship manifest her name is only Alte, and by this time she was
and adult, married and with children. Until today, her descendents
refer to her as Alta. In this case the name was entirely changed.

Probably the name Alte/Alta is the feminine form equivalent to the
masculine name Alter, which was mentioned in a posting of
Judith Romney Wegner.

Re: Amuletic Names #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

In addition to the opinions previously expressed, the names Chaim or
Chaia (sorry about the spellings, there Judith) is sometimes part of a
name given at birth when the ancestor after whom the person is named died
at a young age, obviously because there's one attrribute of that person
that the parents don't want that child to have.

When a name is changed because of illness, the addition of or entire
substitution by an amuletic name depends on the name being used, and both
methods are valid. For instance, it's very unusual (I hesitate to say it
never happened, since it probably did) that somebody gets the new name of
Alter, without his old name attached. But I'm sure that Moshe Dovid was
renamed Chaim Moshe Dovid, Moshe Dovid Chaim, Chaim, or got two (even
non-amuletic) names, and other variations occurred. Then, as now, parents
often followed their rabbi's instructions, except now it's more likely to
be a suggestion.
