You have been patient, we are late, but finally our Spring and Summer
issues are available. Here are the summaries

# 82, Vol. 21, April-June 2005

For the twentieth anniversary of Cercle de Genealogie Juive, Rosine
Alexandre recalls the Society's first steps and her action as the first
Secretary General.

Pascal Faustini initiates a new range of studies. "The Allatini, a
Sephardic dynasty across Europe" describes the fate of this family
initially originating in Italy. Its wealth dates back to Moïse Allatini
(1809 - 1882) owner of industrial mills in Salonika. Faustini sketches
their and their related families' family trees.

Pierre-Andre Meyer searches the missing link between the families Spire
and Spire Levy in Metz. He starts >from a family tree published by Pascal
Faustini in his reference book "La communaute juive de Metz et ses
familles (1565 - 1665) to find the origin of the composed surname Spire
Levy borne in Metz by a family during the 18^th century. Where do the
lineages of Abraham Spire (d. 1705), prepose (parnass) and Goudchaux
Levy (d. 1718), also prepose, connect so as to create Spire Levy? He
assumes that Goudchaux Levy married Nenche (Nenchen), daughter of
Abraham Spire, the couple breeding the brothers Isaac and Alcan Spire
Levy, first bearers of double surname in Metz.

Eliane Roos-Schuhl complements our knowledge of her ancestors Dispeck,
originating in a homonymic village (Diespeck). Ilse Vogel, an awardee of
the Obermayer German-Jewish Award has devoted herself to keep the Jewish
past of the village alive.

Sister Emmanuelle, a famous Catholic nun who has spent her long life
helping the poorest to survive, has contacted our Society about her
ancestors Dreyfus >from Mommenheim in Alsace. Ernest Kallmann, while
providing her the available information, has established a personal
contact. He discovers that the name Emmanuel pervades her family's
family tree and wonders why his correspondent, proud of her Jewish
ancestors, has chosen it as her name in religion.

Eliane Roos-Schuhl guides us in the deciphering the letter-and-number
riddle appearing in an entry of the Worms Memorbuch.

Bernard Lyon-Caen publishes an 1850 census of the Jewish population of
the town of Tours, discovered during a visit to the city archives.
Jean-Pierre Bernard informs that the cemetery of Nancy has lately set up
an index of 2500 names.

#83, Vol.21, July-September 2005

Claudie and Jacques Blamont have researched Charles Valentin Alkan's
paternal and maternal ancestors. Thereby they complement and specify the
information provided as yet by the various musicologists who have
written about this piano virtuoso (Paris 1813 - 1888).

Pascal Faustini draws on his knowledge of the Koblenz Memorbuch to
provide details about the families Lahnstein and Bernkastel. These
families appear on the Metz /registre de bourgeoisie/ (census of Jews
authorized to live in the town) in 1665.

Philippe Danan recalls Adolphe Cremieux (Nîmes 1796 - Paris 1880),
French politician, minister and senator. During a debate about the Jews
in Algeria he stresses the patriotism of 17 such Jews who sign a
petition in Pernambouc (Brazil) in 1871. It has been tried to identify
who signed.

Georges Halbronn reviews, with illustrations, the progress of a
projected Memorbuch of the Rosenwiller Jewish cemetery.

Fernand Deray presents the status of his transcription of the vital
records in Constantine, Batna and Ain Beda (Algeria).

According to EIDB my grandmother, and one sister are listed as coming >from
Chraplice. their other sister is listed as coming >from Raplicz.
I am unable to find any reference to the name Raplicz,and little
info about Chraplice other then the name. They came to New York in the
early 1900's. I was wondering if anyone is familiar with these names
in this time frame. I only know they were >from Galicia.
Thank you very much.

Re: NEWMAN #general

pamkosky@...
 

Hi
Does anyone have the family name of SUMMERS who lived in England in the
19th century. My great grandparents lived here then.

Pamela Elizabeth Kosky (nee NEWMAN)

Sender: pamkosky@...
I might add a couple of things. I have known all my life, obviously,
that I am NOT related to the famous actor "Paul Newman".
Incidentally, this is my late father's family I am referring to.. I
have a lot of "Newman" and "Summers" family in USA as my Grandfather
Bernard Newman was the only one that got off the boat at the port of
Liverpool in England, >from Russia. My great grandparents by the name
of Summers came >from (which was then) Prussia and Saxe Coburg, they
also decided to stop off at Liverpool. This would have been a long time
before Grandpa Bernard Newman arrived in England. My paternal
grandmother Sarah Newman (nee Summers) lived to almost 100 years old
and Dad and my late Uncle Henry who were in the legal profession
informed me of the family history. Sadly, I have only one living
Uncle, i.e. Dr Peter Newman who lives in Leeds, (he was a Consultant
Reader Lecturer in Neurology at St James' Hospital in Leeds and
Professor in the USA ) and is not really informative about Geneology.
Anyway if anyone who uses this site is related to us then let us know.
My late mother's family all came >from Poland, Grandma's name was Miriam
Greenfield and Zeidas name was Barnet Greenfield. They came to London
about 1880.
Well if anyone has any connections with my family, I would be pleased
to hear >from you.

Re: Finding relatives who were institutionalized - NYC #general

Debra Price <dsprice@...>
 

My research has led me to an aunt (born in Poland/immigrated to U.S.) who
was institutionalized in the New York City area with serious psychiatric
problems. This occurred sometime between 1930 and 1960. Would it be possible
to find out which hospital? It was a state institution, I plan to respect
her privacy by keeping the health information confidential
There were several state hospitals where NYC residents were
sent. Bronx Residents generally were sent to Rockland State in
Orangeburg (Rockland County), NY. Other hospitals in the area were
in Suffolk County on Long Island: Pilgrim (Commack), Central Islip,
and Kings Park. I know of one person sent to Pilgrim who was a
Brooklyn resident.

Passport number that appears on a passenger manifest in the US, in 1947,

application for that passport in France? Were such applications kept?
And if so, where could they be accessed, if at all?

Many thanks,
