Hi Carol,

There is a WEALTH of information in these spreadsheets but in the hour
since I finally opened them, I've gone back >from 1845 to 1787 or so with
my Karlin family and have a wife's name to boot.

You and your volunteers have done so much to further the cause of
information gathering about our families. I am grateful for all the work
that you do and have done these many years.

Thank you.

Picard family #france

hernan picard <hernanpicard@...>
 

Hello, dear jewishgen members:
I'm an argentinian, descendant of a french citizen named, Sylvain Picard,
born in Mulhouse (Alsace) in 1863. In those days, Alsace was part of France,
but in 1870 the region was annexed to Germany. So when Sylvain (or Sylvin)
Picard had to do the military service, he run out the German Alsace to join
the Foreign Legion ("Légion Etrangère"). After many years passed in Panama
(the construction of the Canal) and in Chili, he finally stayed in Argentina
(Rio Gallegos city, argentinian Patagonia), and three generations later, me,
I returned to France and begun searching information about the family roots.
After some information I have gathered, Picard, even if it is a usual french
name, is also a common jew name in the Jewish community in Alsace. Even
though, the Picard family, in Argentina, is catholic. But it could obviously
be an adopted name. So I'm not certain about Sylvin Picard's religion. The
name, the country, and the city of origin suggest a jewish origin. Their
parents were named Henri Picard, and Pauline Rueff (or Ruff) . Rueff is also
a jewish name.
All the information I have stops there. I have contacted the Jewish
community in Mulhouse, but with no results.
How could I get some information about Henri Picard and/or Pauline Rueff ?
All I know was written in the document when Sylvin was born: they were both
born in Mulhouse, and they had 30 and 28 years old (so I deduce, born in
1833 and 1835)
Mulhouse Archives do not accept requirements >from any particular; except in
case you have the exact names, dates and places.
I thank for every suggestion you could send me.

Thanks a lot. Hernàn Picard, Gentilly, France.

Locating evidence of a divorce in late 19th Century Poland #general

Stein Lewis
 

from JRI-Poland, I learned that my gf, Mendel SZTEJNSAPIR married
Sora Feige ROZENBLUM on 13 May 1885 in Rajgrod, Lomza. (Sora Feige
was his first cousin) I also know that he had two children in
Rajgrod, one in 1889 and one in 1891, but not >from Sora. Their mother
was my gm, Elke BRAUN of Wizajny, Suwalki, who had five more children
in the USA. I also learned >from JRI-Poland that Sora Feige Rozenblum
married Simcho KUSPERFICKI in Rajgrod in 1888. Thus I know that she
had not died. Obviously, there had to have been a divorce and a get.
It may be asking too much, but is there some way to locate evidence
of a divorce and/or a get >from that period? Were civil divorces
registered?

Looking for Amsterdam #general

Dick Jaeger <richard@...>
 

On behalf of one of my oldest friends I am looking for records of their
mother's family surname, AMSTERDAM originally >from Poland but lived in
Frankfurt till 1940 . Her mother's name was Eva Amsterdam. Eva's father's
name was Joseph, mother Selma, Eva was born in 1917 had two older brothers
Henry and Gustave and a younger brother Arthur. Eva went to London in 1940
and then to the US during the Blitz, sponsored by a cousin named RICHTER,
possibly >from the Detroit or Cleveland area. Eva and her husband and
children lived in New York (married name Singer and children named Carey and
Margo Singer). Her brother Henry was in the British Army during the war and
her parents and younger brother went to Italy Alberpbello or Bari The
family was split up and only Eva's father is known, unfortunately because of
a picture of a grave. Carrey and Margo both of whom live in New York and I
have known each other for over fifty years and Carey was married to my first
cousin. Eva died in the 1970's.
Margo and Carey are trying to develop additional information for me but that
is basically what I have at the moment.

Further query regarding QUACHIK spelling, does the letter Q exist in Russia? #general

Michelle C <michelle30c@...>
 

Hello

Firstly, I would just like to thank everyone who responded to my original
query, it has helped greatly and is much appreciated.

In my original posting I asked if anyone knew if the surnames CHAVATSIK &
QUACHIK were typical Jewish/Russian names. With regards CHAVATSIK the
consensus of opinion seems to be that it most probably began, originally,
with the letter K instead of CH. This indeed seems very feasible. I noted
however that nobody commented on QUACHIK. In all the records I have found
relating to my great grandmother this surname crops up the most, but through
my own research and taking note of the fact that nobody had any info on this
version of the name, am I right in thinking this means that there arn't any
Jewish/Russian surnames beginning with this particular letter? To help me
clarify the situation in my own mind, could any genners confirm for me
whether the letter Q is part of the Russian language? I have tried looking
this up myself but have to admit to getting a little confused with it all!
If not this will confirm that that particular surname was completely changed
from the original. Incidentally, my own grandmother thought her mothers
maiden name was QUANTIKA but this seems very unlikely now. I think the
broken English must have been the culprit, of course Q does sound very
similar to K which brings us back to CHAVATSIK I suppose! The only constant
between the two names is the ending of IK!

Thanking you all in advance for any further help.
