malcolm katz <malkikatz9361@...>
 

Hello
My great grandparents were Morris LAZARUS and Annie
ALPEROVITCH listed on 5 childrens birth
certificates,On cencus details they are listed as
Russian citizens,Alas they were not natrulized,But
Morris's brother was and on his it states he was from
Grodno,On his census details it states he was from
NOWYDWOR,I canot find any details of a place known as
this and am wondering if anyone can advise me as to
where this would be as i think the census taker must
have mispelt it.
Also on my grandfathers birth certificate the 6th and
latest son Morris(Mosche) is spelt as MOUSCHA and the
mothers name is listed as Hannah FEILPAOVITCH instead
of Alperovitch.
Does anyone know where Mouscha comes >from and has
anyone come accross FEILPAOVITCH in London or anywhere
before.
Many thanks
Malcolm Katz

Hebrew naming #unitedkingdom

malcolm katz <malkikatz9361@...>
 

Hello
On finding my Great grandmothers grave at Edmonton
Federation cemetary,I have a querry for geners with
more knowledge then me,At the top of her grave are
enclosed hands with 2 candlesticks,Which i read as
meaning a Cohen,Which has confused me as i have always
known this to be passed through the male line and dont
understand the meaning of this.
To add to the confusion her fathers name on her
marriage certificate is Israel,A hebrew name in its
own right,Yet on the grave in Hebrew she is Chana bet
Binyamin(Benjamin) im am now totaly confused by this,I
know i have the right grave,If anyone can enlighten me
on either subject i would appreciate it.
Many thanks

Holocaust Museum in Cape Town #lithuania

As some Holocaust Survivors managed to
get into South Africa at the end of World War II,
I have received a few very interesting enquiries
about the Holocaust Centre in Cape Town, since
my report on the Memorial Siren in Cape Town
on Holocaust Day, i.e. Yom Hashoa, >from people
looking for Family as well as second generation members
of Holocaust Survivors.

The website address and details of the Holocaust
Museum in Cape Town is as follows.

MORTKELEWICZ from Dabie Poland #poland

Nicki <nicki@...>
 

I'm trying to get more information on my great uncle Yankel
MORTKELEWICZ, who in 1901 in Dabie, Poland, married my great aunt Cirel
Orchan.

Yankel came to the U.S. in 1913. He's listed as Jacob Mortkelewiez, age
38 and married in the Ellis Island records. He arrived Jun 05, 1913
having sailed on the SS Oceanic >from Southampton. He sailed in steerage
class, paid for his own passage and came with $25. His occupation is
listed as tailor. He went to Philadelphia to 414 N. 5th St. to a friend
listed as S. Noronik (that's what it looks like - the handwriting is
hard to read).

Yankel returned to Poland to get his wife and children, which the family
called Rozia, to bring them to the U.S. On the trip back to Poland he
died of a heart attack.

I tried to find old Philadelphia city directories online and even
searched the newsgroup database to see if anyone recommended an online
source, but couldn't find any leads. Maybe I was searching on the wrong
words. I also checked the 1920 census, but didn't find any Mortkelewicz
listed.

I'm trying to find:
who was living at 414 N. 5th St. in 1913
who is S. Noronik
Yankel's whereabouts in Philadelphia
when and on what ship Yankel sailed back to Poland
how to find a record of his death. I searched the worldwide burial
registry at Jewishgen and couldn't find him. My guess is that he was
buried in Dabie, Poland.

A few set of eyes and suggestions on finding more on my great uncle
would be greatly appreciated.

As an aside, I grew up in South Philadelphia which had a large Jewish
population. There is an interesting online exhibition at the National
Museum of American Jewish History about the Jews of South Philadelphia
called Still Home. Here's the link

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
