Paternal grandparents marriage record found -- I think - but more name confusion #general

Deb(orah) Cohen Skolnik
 

After a month of waiting, I received what I think is my father's parents' NY
State certificate and record of marriage.

I'd appreciate it if others would look at the comparison of what's on the
certificate and the info I already had, and venture a guess as to whether I've
really hit pay dirt or not -- thanks in advance!

Certificate What I Already Knew
G'father's name: G'father's name:
Benjamin Cohen Barnet(t) Cohen
Dov Ber Kissin

Would Benjamin be an acceptable substitute for Dov Ber (or either of these
names)? Using the Jewishgen name converter, I don't see that as a possibility.
And why would he switch >from Benjamin to Barnet?

G'mother's name: Grandmother's name:
Bessie Soltuskiss/Softusskiss Bessie Solutuzkyn

There is no name similar to Soltuskiss/Softuskiss in the immigration records that
I can find. I'm assuming this was just a difficult name to spell in English.

G'father's occupation: G'father's
occupation:
Ice man Ice dealer (father's
birth cert two years
later

Great-g'father's name: Great g'father's
name:
Is-- Cohen Israel Kissin

I can't really read the first name on the certificate, unfortunately. If the
name really was Kissin in the old country, why would my grandfather use Cohen for
his father? To answer myself, because he wanted to?

Perhaps I'll post the certificate to ViewMate, to see if anyone can help me
figure out the handwriting.

Also, with the recent discussion about naming children after deceased relatives,
would the surname of a deceased relative have been used for a first name?

On this marriage record, my grandmother's mother's maiden name is given as
Kalman. My grandmother named one of her sons Kalman. Does that make sense?

Thanks in advance (as always) for all help.

Best regards,

Searching:

GARBARSH, GARBAR, GERBER -- Ostrow - Chicago (Jacob Gerber)
SOLUTUSZKYN -- ??Jatyn (on Ellis Island Records)-Brooklyn, NY
Peshe (Bessie) Solutuszkyn Cohen
KISSIN -- Kiev-Brooklyn, NY became Barney or Barnet Cohen at some point

Researching REPENNING and MALTZEN - Germany > US 1880 - 90 #germany

Diane Cudo <tikvah7@...>
 

Dear GerSig Members:
I am researching the name REPENNING. My maternal grandmother is shown on
our tree as "Margareta REPENNING, b. 1869, m. 1892 to Hinrich (Henry)
Friedrich MALTZEN.

Both Henry and Margareta would have emigrated to the United States in the
decade of 1880-1890.

The MALTZEN that I find on emigration records was listed as dated 1890
rather than the 1881 date in family records.

The only REPENNING that comes near the match and is shown on U.S. emigration
records is listed as Elise REPENNING, b. 1869, age 19, departing from
Hamburg and arriving the 4th of May, 1881 >from Schmbuhl, Prussia. Birth
year matches. Both Hinrich/Henry and Elise note "Prussia" as their origin.

The Schleswig-Holstein area of what is now northwest Germany was at that time
Prussia. Thanks for any help.

Seek HARTMAN and information re COHEN name variations #germany

Diane Cudo <tikvah7@...>
 

Dear GerSigers,
I am researching my paternal line, HARTMAN. My great-great grandfather,
James D. HARTMAN, b. 1818, d.1896, is the latest information I have at this
time. No time line on emigration to the U.S.

I have been advised in the past that the name KALE, or various spellings of
the name, i.e. KEHL, KAIL, COEHL, were replacements for the Jewish name
Cohen. Does anyone have information regarding this, or resources to suggest?

Thank you... Diane Hartman Cudo Tikvah7@netvision.net.il

MODERATOR NOTE: Please give ** a little ** more information when you ask for
help researching a person. Where was James D. HARTMAN born? Where did he die?
How do you know that he was of German ancestry ?

** Basic ** information on your primary research subject should be included in
every inquiry to our list. Please do *** not *** send entire family trees or
family histories to our list. That information should usually be exchanged
privately and / or via the JewishGen FTJP. MODERATOR

Re: foto studios/website #germany

Christopher Massur <cmassur@...>
 

Martin.Conitzer@t-online.de (Martin Conitzer) provided a SITE CITE to:
http://db.genealogy.net/fotostudios
The website (in German )gives details about historic photographic studios in
Germany. ============>

The list is a growing effort it seems. Already quite a lot of German towns
and photographers or studios can be found. You can see details of their
logos and sometimes also an actual picture. This info helps identifying the
style and / or timeframe [of old photographs]. I saw that also some photographers
in Swiss towns are mentioned. I put it right a way on my favorites list, because
with the help of more contributors this can grow out to be a major data-base.

Even though the information is in German, it does not matter, because the main
thing is to locate the names of photographers or the town they worked in.
