Dear Rom-Sig researchers:

Just received an Email reply >from the Vienna archives in regard to my
inquiry re the issuance of a passport to Selig MARKEL(GOLDBERG) who
left Vienna,(with his wife, young son and wife's sister) in January
1900 for the USA. The reply is in German. There are about sixteen
lines and I would appreciate it if someone in the group would be kind
enough to translate it into English for me.

I will email the letter upon receiving your offer to translate it.

Thank you all in advance!!

Re: Family's move from Lithuania to Latvia in 19th C #general

Does anyone know the history of Jewish immigration >from Lithuania to
Latvia in the 19th Century or earlier...assuming there was such a
thing.

Thanks!

===
My mother's family also has a Latvian/Lithuanian link, and also a line >from
Belarus (Drissa): the Lithuanian family is the NOTES/NOTIS family, based in
Kovno; the Latvian family is MALTINSKY, based in Dvinsk and also in Rezhitsa;
the Drissa family is MOSTOW/MOSTOFF. In Rezhitsa, by 1897, there is at least
one Notis/Maltinsky marriage. The relationship continued in NY, with at least
two Notis/Maltinsky marriages. There was at least one Mostow/Maltinsky marriage
by the time the couple came to Queens in 1900.

Drissa and Dvinsk or Rezhitsa are relatively close together, but Kovno is a
substantial jump >from the Latvian towns. Morris Maltinsky's father was a
"small trader", or a merchant, as I recall. Not at all sure what the Notis
family did, but if it had to do with trade, it wouldn't have been impossible
to have become friendly in business. In the case of the intermarriage in
Rezhitsa, incidentally, it was the bride, Elka (?) Notis, who traveled to
Rezhitsa to marry Reuben Maltinsky.

High School Near Delancy Street #general

Vivian Kahn
 

My mother lived on Avenue C near 10th Street and went to Washington
Irving High School, 40 Irving Place at 16th Street. Washington Irving
is a short subway ride or a long walk >from Delancey Street. Seward
Park High School at 350 Grand Street seems a much more likely
"neighborhood" school. Zero Mostel and Walter Matthau are both Seward
grads. The school continues to serve immigrant families but these days
many are Asian. See
http://www.insideschools.org/fs/school_profile.php?id=955 for more
info. According to this website, Seward was being phased out as of
2003.

Vivian Kahn, Oakland, CA (b. NYC)

If a person lived at 138 Delancey St in NYC, which high school would this
person attend close to this home? I'm looking for a high school
that existed in that area around 1890.
I'm not sure when it was first established, but my father-in-law went
to Seward Park H.S. He was born in 1916.

Re: Seeking location of obscure shtetl #general

tom klein <jewishgen@...>
 

What I can tell you for sure is that "Wegry" is Polish for Hungary, so you might
be looking in the wrong country, or with the wrong spelling (Polish and
Hungarian orthography being significantly different). Neither "Tetsek" nor
"Tetoz" looks or sounds like an actual Hungarian word or place name, but more
like a translation into Polish.

A look at the distribution of STEINMETZs in the 1891 industry and trade
directory of Hungary shows that 18 of the 30 hits are in Maramaros county, with
the rest very scattered. And there happens to be a place called Te'cso:
(Tyachev in Ukranian, Tesc in Yiddish, Tetsch in German) in Maramaros county,
although I wouldn't exactly describe it as "obscure".

So that's at least one possible avenue of research.

Does anybody know where this obscure shtetl might have been located? As
