HOLLANDER, REICHENSTEIN research in Koln #germany

Shmuel Kehati
 

I am searching my family, and looking for information about the following persons:

Yeshayahu HOLLANDER. Died: in Koln, Germany.
His daughter, Frieda (HOLLANDER) REICHENSTEIN. Died: in Koln, Germany.
Her husband, Leo Leib REICHENSTEIN. Died: 20/12/1939 in Koln, Germany.

It's the first time for me researching in Germany, so I would ask you how to
go about finding this information? [MODERATOR NOTE: The "Welcome / Intro"
letter that you received when you joined GerSIG tells you how to begin.]

Is there an address in Koln where I can write to and ask for information?
Thanks very very much,

Shmuel Kehati Tel-Aviv, Israel shmuelk@...

Picture of the Yismach Moshe #rabbinic

Todd Brody
 

I have previously seen a drawing of Moses TEITELBAUM, the Yismach
Moshe, in various books and on the internet. However, now that I am
actually trying to find that drawing, I have had no luck. If anyone
can direct me to a site where that picture appears I would be most
appreciative.

assistance in Manitoba #general

jutel@...
 

I have only one short branch to my family tree, and it
remains a bit of a mystery. But, without going into too
much detail, I have a lead in Manitoba. I have found a
newspaper report about someone with the same unusal name as
my great-great uncle (Drozdowitz), working in the same field
(pawnbroking), and getting up to the same antics as he did
when I found him in Utah a few years later(violence).
Although this seems completely out in left field in other
ways, I'd like to try to follow up the lead and see if maybe
I can find out where he came >from by his brief stint in
Canada (if it's the same guy). He was naturalised in
Colorado in 1880,and the 1990 US census shows his arrival as
1874.

However, I have done no work in Canada before and am not
quite sure where to start. My genealogy experience is all
US or Europe. Is there anyone on the list either based in,
or with some experience searching in Manitoba in the 19th
century? I would appreciate if you dropped me a line
off-list.

many thanks,

re Cohens #lithuania

Margaret Fullarton and David Mark <fullmark@...>
 

Not the surname but the meaning - How do you know if you are a cohen?
(as in of the priestly people??) My husband's family is of them and at
funerals the men of the direct line must sit apart >from the rest of us
at funerals. Can anyone explain this to me and how it has come about
and why modern families still adhere to it? My family just sticks to it
but when I have asked for the way they know this they cannot tell me.
cheers and thanks

Seligmans in Ekaterinoslav #ukraine

Scott D. Seligman <heyscott@...>
 

According to records >from the Minsk Archives, several members of my SELIGMAN
family moved >from Parichi (outside Bobruisk) to Ekaterinoslav in the late
1880s/early 1890s, no doubt participating in the government's plan to
encourage Jews to establish new agricultural settlements in Novorussia.

Simon Zalmonov ZELIKMAN (b. 1832) and his wife Rochla and Simons' brother
Pinchas Zalmanov ZELIKMAN (b. 1842) were among them, and possibly their
brothers Avram, Meyer Leib and Aaron as well. Simon's family was "ruled out
from Parichi petty bourgeoisie >from the beginning of 1st half 1887 . by the
reason of including them into Ekaterinoslav 2nd guild tradesmans." Pinchas
was included in "Ekaterinoslav petty bourgeoisies."

I've done extensive research in Belarus but I'm a Ukraine newbie. Can anyone
suggest some research strategies to point me in the right direction to see
what became of these folks? In particular, what record groups are available
in Ukraine for these agricutural settlers, and does anyone have a researcher
to recommend?

Many thanks...

Fw: Fieldgate Street #unitedkingdom

Dear Jonathan
Just a thought that perhaps the people named as living at 9,10,11 Fieldgate
Street in 1891 were employees of Grodzinski's shop, as shop owners and staff
sometimes did live above the premises?

All the best

I have replied separately to Jonathan with the census references for
the page he wants.

I would remind the group that I have CDs for London Censuses >from
1841 to 1901 inclusive. Each box of CDs contains a street index,
which is fairly accurate, and I'd be happy to look up a street name
for you. It takes me all of one minute! Please form the queue at the right.

These Censuses come >from a commercial source. I can provide this
information privately.

Michael Bernet was correct in stating that pupik / pipik is the name
for chicken (or goose) gizzard. This is the actual translation of the
word. My mother used to make a "rosselle ( stew ) of chicken
pipiklech (gizzards) gergalech ( necks) and hartselech (hearts) .
Full disclosure: I declared it was an umbilicus. Weinreich gives both terms
as translations. In this case I earned undeserved praise in the citation.
Usually I get misquoted and someone else's erroneous statement is hauled out to
trump me.

Important: make sure you're citing the correct citation for the correct
person, whether you come to bury Caesar or to praise her.
