Shalom all,
My grandfather's brother Arnold Vadasz Jacobs was born
March 4, 1880 in Velkekapusawy, Hungary. He came to
the US on Dec 2, 1923 >from Cherbourg, France, abord
the Aquitania to New York City. In Hungary he was an
attorney. I think he was a restaurant cashier in NYC.
He lived at 121 92nd Street. He died in 1970.

I know less about grandpa. His name was Kuby Jacobs
born 1867 ungary, died 1961 in Oklahoma.

Can anyone help me locate Velkekapusawy? Was the name
Vadasz Jewish? Could Kuby be a diminuative for Jacob?
Where shall I look next?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

I have not felt that people are "making up stories" about
naturalizations, ship manifests, etc.
While I agree that all should be familiar with Warren Blatt's FAQs,
antidotal references provide an essential tool for research. While some
experience may be misleading and the researcher must always be aware of this
possibility in a fairly open format, never the less "stories" can be very
helpful.

BLIOKH v. BLOCH #general

Sharon R. Korn <s.r.korn@...>
 

I am searching for Osher BLOCH in Gargzdai, Lithuania. He probably lived
his whole life there and was in his late 50's or 60's when he died there in
late 1906 (possibly early 1907). In the jewishgen database for that town,
there is an Osher David BLIOKH, age 47 in 1885. Are Bliokh and Bloch spellings
used to transliterate the same name, so that these could be the same person?
Thank you.

LEIFER Rabbinical Family #rabbinic

Dear RavSIGgers,

I am interested in something about the famous rabbinical LEIFER
family. Are the LEIFERs Cohanim? My reason for asking is that my
LAUFER ancestors were Cohanim and I am wondering if my LAUFER family
and the LEIFER family are related.

Regards,

Ashkenazic Rabbinic Council, Jerusalem #rabbinic

mark weinberg <m_weinberg@...>
 

RavSIG readers,

Family legend has it that my ggggf Israel Joseph WEINBERG was Chief
Rabbi of Jerusalem in the 1870s. I believe he was an Ashkenazic
Jew, born in Polish Russia.

I've been researching for a few months now and have not been able to
find any reference to my ggggf in historical documents. I've also
been working the genealogical resources for about a year. The best
I've done is to find the name "Joseph Weinberg" listed on the death
certificate of my gggf (died NYC 1929).

Most of the historical records I've searched have been secondary
sources (e.g., the Jewish Encyclopedia). What would really be
useful is to find some detailed records of the Ashkenazic Rabbinical
councils in Jerusalem during my period of interest. There are texts
available which might contain useful information, but they tend to
be in Hebrew (which I can't read).

If anyone can help identify good English sources in my research
area, I'd greatly appreciate it.
