Do we have Jewish ancestors? #general

anu ruokanen <anu.santra.alisa@...>
 

We have been studying our familytree for a while, but now I feel
like I can´t get anywhere anymore... We strongly believe that
we have Jewish roots, but there is not such mention in records.
However many first names are like Abraham, Israel, Joshua...I´ll
write a list about familynames if someone can tell more about
them. And how can we find out if our ansectors were Jewish ?

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>

cemetery has) for

1992

Surnames HALLKOFSKY and PLANSKA. #general

R.C.W. Hall, Jr.
 

Greetings all,

It was suggested to me by a genealogist that I start research on this
group, after finding the following information:

Cambridge, Middlesex MA
23 April 1910
SD-119 ED-769 Sheet 15B Image 30
117 Pleasant St
Benedict HALKOFSKY 26 m1 married 4yrs Rus-Yiddish [ditto parents] Imm 1906
Mary wife 22 m1 mar4yrs 1/1 Rus-Yiddish [ditto parents] Imm 1906
Alexander son 2 MA

[Yiddish heritage suggests religious persecution {pogrom?}]

1917-1918
Benedict Ignattesy HALLKOFSKY
Cambridge Middlesex MA
235 Broadway
employed at Woodbury and sons
Carpenter
next of kin Mrs Mary Hallkofsky
born 14 Mar 1885

Suggests all the children may have been born in Cambridge.
Additional records may be found there and should be pursued.

Now, I know very little about Benedict and Mary, my great
grandparents. Birth certificates >from their children seem to indicate that
they are both Russian, but someone told me recently that Mary, maiden name
PLANSKA, was b. in Salzburg, Austria, and her father was >from
Czechoslovakia and mother >from Poland.

I do not know if Benedict had any brothers and sisters. I know nothing else.

Mary had four other sisters; the name of one being Anne. As the family
story goes, they were living in Koblinsky and their family were barters and
bakers; Mary the oldest. Mother d. in childbirth and father went off to
the service and never returned.

Surname Hallkofsky appears most frequently, although I have seen numerous
spellings: Halkofsky, Halkowsky and Hallkowsky. It was suggested to me
that the surname was "Americanized."

Any information would be most appreciated. I find it interesting that
doing a google search on Hallkofsky, and other variants yield nothing to
very little. If I change the "y" to an "i", I find additional info. under
Halkowski, but it is my assumption that that is a Polish surname (ending
with an i).

Thank you all for your time.

'good day.

Re: 1902 New York City directory Make sense of this please #general

ilyaz <ilyaz@...>
 

Lisa,
it's much more than two cents! Thanks for so much details. Unfortunately, I
have no direct access to the Directory, therefore I have to relay on pieces
of info collected >from elsewhere. Sure, when I was in Salt Lake City at the
library, it was easy to check within an hour everything in a number of
directories. But then I did not search New York... Your suggestion that 54
Eldridge is both a place of work and a home seems to be right. This address
is listed in the 1900 census.
The Directory of the Deceased, unfortunately, would not work because Max
died in 1931... But thanks for the reference, I never heard of it.

I agree with Jerry. I have found relatives and family friends as
witnesses in some old records >from Galicia. The point of my narrative
was to show that one should not automatically discount the witnesses --
even in the old European records.

Miami cemetery images request #general

Thomas Lerman
 

I have three relatives buried at Mt. Nebo Cemetery in
Miami Florida (5505 NW 3rd St). I am looking for
someone to take some good quality digital images of
their headstones, the cemetery entrace, the area where
they are buried, and a scan of the map. I already know
the section they are in and even have an old map that
has been well used. I am willing to trade for help
with census help or anything else I can help with. I
have been planning on going to the Family History
Library for some time as well, but know I will not be
able to go for at least another month.

Please respond privately. I will then get the names
and other information to you. Thank you for your time.

ROZAN - WYGODA Family. #general

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Dear Genners,

This list is quite amazing - only a few hours after posting my message
regarding MELNICK/WYGODA I received >from a fellow genner a complete MELNICK
family tree with all the names on it that I had supplied in my message.
Words are superfluous.

from the tree I learnt that, as I thought, Chaim Schmuel WYGODA was born in
Rozan in 1894. Now I have an extra 'clue' for any WYGODA'S out there...
Chaim's father was Moshe Natan WYGODA -
his mother's name is unknown.

I look forward now to the possibility of hearing >from someone who knows of
Rozan WYGODAS, especially concerning siblings/cousins of Moshe Natan, and
Chaim Schmuel..

Thank you all.
