I am trying to find Daniel Goodman who married Mary Louisa Jackson in
England around 1884/1886. Daniel Goodman was a Salesman and was deceased
before the 1920's. They had a daughter (my grandmother) in 1887 Elizabeth
Louisa Goodman who married James Victor Hall in 1920 in Australia. Any
information appreciated.

Looking for Arthur LEVINSOHN family from Poughkeepsie, NY #general

Yehudh bn Shlmo
 

Dear members,

I am looking for the children of Arthur Levinsohn who
was born in Pookeipsee, NY. about 1908 and died there
in 2004. He was the son of Morris and Clara Levinsohn.
However in Lithuania the Morris's name was Moshva Itzik Chosid.
I have another Chosid relative visiting >from Israel that is
interested in speaking with them. He
knew them when he lived in Chicago.

I was told there was a Donald Levinsohn in New
Jersey, that may be one of the children or is
related. I did find a listing in the 2002 phone
book for Clifton, New Jersey.

Anyone with access to 2004 Obits in Pookeipsee would
help for finding the children's names. I tried the
"Pookeipsee Journal" but could only get to 2005 and
1999 online (don't know why).

Any good leads this week will be appreciated.

Shalom,
Yehudah ben Shlomo

his daughter Khaye, 3 years old

Finally I would like to comment the list a bit:

As you see the first Jew in Cesis seems to have been Shmuel Lipmanov
ROZENTAL who came there >from Kurlyand in 1840. In most places where I have
read about the Jews in Cesis it's always said the first ones settled there
in the late 19th century. Now I know that several families came there in the
mid 19th century.

Most of the Jews in Cesis originated in todays Lithuania, mostly in the
northwestern area, back then part of Kovno guberniya. Many families seems to
have originated in one certain shtetl, Okmyany (Akmene).

Not all the Jews of Cesis lived in the town of Cesis, some lived in smaller
villages and other settlements in the district of Venden (Vendenskiy uyezd).
I haven't tried to identify those smaller villages or the volosts
(communities of several small villages), but perhaps some of you know the
names of the places today!

Surprisingly many of the Jews in Cesis worked as glaziers. I wonder what
business they worked in. Perhaps they came to Cesis just to work in a
certain glass industry?

Finally I would like to comment the list a bit:

As you see the first Jew in Cesis seems to have been Shmuel Lipmanov
ROZENTAL who came there >from Kurlyand in 1840. In most places where I have
read about the Jews in Cesis it's always said the first ones settled there
in the late 19th century. Now I know that several families came there in the
mid 19th century.

Most of the Jews in Cesis originated in todays Lithuania, mostly in the
northwestern area, back then part of Kovno guberniya. Many families seems to
have originated in one certain shtetl, Okmyany (Akmene).

Not all the Jews of Cesis lived in the town of Cesis, some lived in smaller
villages and other settlements in the district of Venden (Vendenskiy uyezd).
I haven't tried to identify those smaller villages or the volosts
(communities of several small villages), but perhaps some of you know the
names of the places today!

Surprisingly many of the Jews in Cesis worked as glaziers. I wonder what
business they worked in. Perhaps they came to Cesis just to work in a
certain glass industry?

Re: Question about JACOB Surname #germany

Roger Lustig <trovato@...>
 

Scott:
Depends on where in Germany, I'd say.

Mind you, with the Jewish population of Germany having made up about 1% of the
whole, if one found 200 Gentiles and 200 Jews with a particular surname, that
would argue for its being far more common among Jews than among Gentiles!

In Hamburg, one encountered names like JACOBS, JACOB, and JACOBI quite
frequently, and still does. (Plenty of JACOBSENs up in Scandinavia
too!) MARX (>from Marcus) was also widespread among Gentiles; and then
there's BRAHMS, which is >from Abraham.

Since common Gentile surnames are unlikely to have died out, one might
even consult the on-line telephone directories in today's Germany.

COHNs of Berlin #germany

David Behrendt <dkbehr@...>
 

Greetings.

I am looking for information on the COHN family of Berlin, and
specifically for evidence that would identify me as a "Kohen" (priest).

My father, Peter COHN (now Peter BEHRENDT), was born in Berlin in 1927.
His father, Berthold COHN, was a prominent attorney and friend of
Joachim PRINZ, Rabbi and founder of the Friedenstempl in Berlin.
Berthold and the family immigrated to America in 1936.

Records that would be particularly useful to me:

- Marriage record/Ketubah of my Grandfather (Berthold Friedrich COHN)
and Grandmother (Erna COHN, nee Unger), m. 1919/1920, Berlin.
- Headstone of my Gr. Grandfather (Max/Mannheim COHN), d. around/before
1930, Berlin.

Would anyone know how I might locate these or other pertinent records?

FYI, here is the full list of names & dates:
- Peter COHN (my father); b. April 20, 1927, Berlin.
- Esther COHN (aunt/Peter's sister); b. December 24, 1920, Berlin.
- Berthold Friedrich COHN (grandfather); b. June 20, 1894, Berlin.
- Erna COHN (grandmother, nee Unger); m. 1919-1920, Berlin; d. ~1933,
Berlin.
- Hans COHN (great uncle/Berthold's brother); b. ~1896-1900, Berlin; d.
WW1, German Army.
- Max/Mannheim COHN (gr. grandfather); b. March 25, 1859, Krotoszyn; d.
around/before 1930, Berlin.
- Ida COHN (gr. grandmother, nee Danziger) m. August 1, 1893 Berlin or
Krotoszyn; d. ~1939-43, Berlin.
- Mathias COHN (gr. gr. grandfather); b. ~1827-37, Krotoszyn; d. date
unknown, Krotoszyn or Berlin.
- Johanna COHN (gr. gr. grandmother, nee Auerbach); m. ~1848-58,
Krotoszyn or Berlin; d. unknown date, Berlin or Krotoszyn.

This matter has a great deal of practical significance for me. Any assistance or
advice would be greatly appreciated. [see MOD NOTE below] Thanks and best regards,

Re: Camp for Displaced Persons in Feldafing #germany

Tmahl <Tobias.Mahl@...>
 

Dear GerSIG Forum readers:
The issue I am working on is as follows: I am doing a research project for
the authorities of the city of Munich concerning the history of the famous
Villa Waldberta in Feldafing at the Lake Starnberg near Munich. Today the
building is owned by the city of Munich and used as a residence for art
scholarship holders.

from 1945-1952 the villa was occupied by the US-Army for the purposes of the
Jewish Displaced-Persons-Camp in Feldafing.
The Archive of the Zentrum für Antisemitsimusforschung in Berlin keeps
copies of the "Leo-Schwarz-Papers" and "DP-Germany" in which I found several
lists with the names of many inhabitants of the Villa Waldberta. The
inhabitants mainly came >from Eastern Europe and Germany. I am very
interested in finding persons who are still alive and have lived in the
Villa during the described period or maybe any ancestors of persons that have
lived in the building and have died in the meantime. Maybe you know one of them?

I have listed the names, the place of birth and the date of birth below.
Sometimes it is very difficult to read the original text so I have marked it
with a "?". It is then meant as "Sounds like".

Thank you for your help and best regards!
