Searching: KARP / GLASS / MATUK families - Lithuania & USA #lithuania

Michael Trapunsky <trapunsky@...>
 

Hi all,

I am researching some recently discovered cousins - the descendants of
Benjamin KARP and his wife Esther (nee MATUK) - and wanted to see if anyone
had any information on them.

I believe that Esther KARP was a sister to my great great great
grandfather, Yakov MATUK who was >from Sirvintos and Vilna, Lithuania. Their
father's name was Shmuel MATUK.

Benjamin and Esther KARP had the following 4 children that I am aware of:
1- Peter KARP
2- Samuel KARP
3- Tillie (Karp) COHEN
4- Rachel (Karp) GLASS

Rachel KARP (1872-1940) married Louis GLASS in Lithuania (probably in the
1890's) and they later on moved to Brooklyn, New York. Their children were:
1- Dorothy RUBIN
2- Eva BERNSTEIN
3- Minnie RUBIN
4- Ben GLASS
5- Joseph GLASS

If anyone knows anything about this family (or would like further details)
I would love to hear >from you.

Thank you very much for your help,

Searching: GITEL family - Vilna and Israel #lithuania

Michael Trapunsky <trapunsky@...>
 

Hi all,

I'm searching for the GITEL family >from Vilna and Israel.

Freidel KOWARSKI (1878-1940) was the eldest of the 13 to 18 children of
Gedalia KOWARSKI (1853-1910) and his wife Fruma (nee BLINDER - 1862-1918)
of Svencionys and Vilna, Lithuania.

Freidel married Eliyahu GITEL (date unknown) and they had at least two
children Rivka and Eliyahu.

Eliyahu moved to Israel shortly before or after the Holocaust, and was a
doctor on a Kibbutz there. He married a woman named Miriam and they had a
son named Yoseph. I think that at some point Yoseph got married, moved to
Africa (temporarily), and had or adopted a daughter there.

If anyone knows anything about this family I would really appreciate
hearing back >from you.

If I decided to call myself 'John Doe', I would tell you to call me John.
Lots of entertainers do this - you see one name in Lights on Broadway, but
they are something else in 'real life'. Is this a name change? It used
to happen this simply in the US: someone would decide to be 'John Doe' and
that was their real name.

When Social Security started, that changed. You could have friends call
you John, but for anything legal, you had to get a court order or marriage
or divorce papers - something legal - before you could change your Social
Security Account, your driver's license, or your credit cards to your new
name. I know 'cause I've been there, and my divorce papers spelled my
name wrong, even though I spelled my name in court. Imagine, the court
reporter couldn't get the spelling of Bruckheimer right, so I had to get
it fixed!
My father calls himself Paul Simon Landau (I have made up these names, but
otherwise this is true) and he has called himself that >from the year dot.

Not so long ago, he looked on his birth certificate and found that, in fact,
he was names had been registered as Simon Paul, the other way around.

His parents had forgotten this, he never knew this, and it can't have
created any complications in his life, because, as I say, he just found
about it by accident.

I agree that a reversal of names is not having totally different names.

It has created no complications for him.

It is just conceivable that if he had been born in this digital age it would.

Sally's info is not correct, at least not in California. I changed my
surname in 1976 without a court order by simply obtaining a new SS
card, new driver's license, and notifying all of my credit card
companies. The only difficulty arose when I needed a new passport but
even then all I had to do was obtain statements >from two people who
knew me both before and after I changed my name.

Just to make things difficult for any of my descendants who might be
into genealogy, I assumed my mother's maiden name.
