Pavoloch and Fastov Families in Canada #general

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

Hi ~

I am trying to locate family in Canada. Here is what I know:

My great grandfather Abraham SNOPARSKY (SCHNAPARSKI/SCHNAPARSKIJ/SNAPARSKY)
aka Avrum Yankel bar Yaacov was born in 1875 in Pavoloch, Ukraine. He had a
brother and a sister whose names I don't know. The brother and/or the
sister emigrated to Canada and were there probably prior to 1908 when
Abraham immigrated to the US via Montreal.

In the St. Albans manifest for 1925 I found a Borich SCHNAPORSKI who crossed
from Canada and went to visit someone in Detroit, MI. He was 19 years at
the time. With the name SCHNAPORSKI he must be a relative, but I don't know
who to connect him with.

Abraham married Etta NULMAN >from Fastov, Ukraine.

Does anyone with family origins in either Fastov or Pavoloch have either
SCHNAPARSKI (or any of the variety of spellings) or NULMAN in their family?
If so, I would greatly appreciate hearing >from you. Please respond
privately.

Thank you.

NATHAN Family of Pittsburgh, PA #general

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

Dear All ~

You are a wonderful group and I want to thank you for the suggestions that
have helped me find missing pieces to this never ending puzzle called
family!

I now have some additional requests for suggestions or information. I am
looking for the descendants of Jennie R. NATHAN nee ROSENBLATT who lived in
Pittsburgh, PA. She was born about 1873 (the census record says in Russia
but it might have been Poland) and immigrated about 1889. I don't know the
first name of her husband. Her children were:

Abraham NATHAN born about 1900
Louis NATHAN baorn about 1902
Morris NATHAN born about 1906
Florence NATHAN born about 1909
Yette NATHAN born about 1915

I did check JGFF and wrote to someone who is researching the NATHAN family
of Pittsburgh; to date I've had no response. If anyone is familiar with
this family I would greatly appreciate hearing >from you. Please respond
privately.

Thank you and regards,

There are Gordons in my family, and I was wondering if Jews might have
selected the name as a tribute to Lord George Gordon, the convert who died at
the end of the 18th Century (chronology would be right)? If not, does anyone
have any bright ideas (not sarcasm!) about where the name came from? By the
way, we can add to Western-sounding Jewish names >from Eastern Europe the name
Boot.

As for warts, one man's wart is another man's beauty spot: When I told a
cousin that our ggfather sold military accouterments to naval officers in St.
Petersburg, and was rich, he practically had a panic attack. I didn't dare
tell him that our gm spoke unaccented English when they arrived in the US,
thanks to her English tutors in the old country.
Of course if our ggf had operated the shtetl tavern and sold vodka
to drunken cossacks, as many Jews did, my cousin would have been
happy with lower class origins.

Moses / Emanuel family, London 1850's #unitedkingdom

Lois Kaufman <lois@...>
 

Perhaps someone on the list recognises the names Barnet Emanuel and wife
Catherine Emanuel? They were born in 1805/1801, Barnet in Posen, Prussia and
Catherine in St. Botolphs, Aldgate, London.

Whilst searching for my g-g-grandmother, Alice Moses, in the 1851 census I
came across an Alice Moses born around the same time who was living with the
above mentioned people. Alice is described as niece, but I don't know if she
is niece to Barnet or Catherine.

I don't know very much about Alice Moses. I do know that her father was
named Moses Moses. I know that she married Jacob Cohen of Ebenezer Square in
1852 in the New Synagogue, and died in 1854 after giving birth to her first
child, a daughter also named Alice - my g-grandmother. So finding this
possible match in the 1851 census could be considered a mini breakthrough -
there weren't very many Alice Moses' in the census so I am confident that it
could be her.

Also living in the same house was a visitor, Fanny Da Castar, aged 8. A
young visitor!

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

Lois Kaufman

1911 census, Montreal #general

joyweave
 

My father was born in Montreal in 1911, so I've been eagerly awaiting
release of the 1911 census. I have an address (349 Clarke St.) for
1913-15, but I don't know if they were there in 1911.
I'm not sure which district the address falls into, but based on a
modern map, I'm guessing it's St. Antoine, so I looked at the first
couple of online page images in that district and I'm at a complete
loss. Where are the street names?? How would I know I've found Clarke
St.? I must be missing something. And is St. Antoine the right
District for Clarke St. to begin with?
Help?
