Given name: Bonna? Danzig? #poland

Elsebeth Paikin
 

I am trying to find the origins of Bonna Hirsch who was born in
Danzig approx. 1775, she died in Denmark in 1855. I have not been
able to find out >from what name "Bonna" is derived. My guess is that
it would have been Bune (or variants).

Has anyone else come across the name Bonna? It is not a usual Danish
or Danish-Yiddish/Hebrew name. I thing that she is the only one with
that name, and it is on her tombstone, so it has not been miswritte/
-typed.

Hopefully yours

Re: Philadelphia Arrival Records #general

Mark Halpern
 

Although the Moderator asked for private responses, I think the
information below will be of interest to other Philadelphia researchers.

In addition to the Philadelphia arrival records available through the
Mid-Eastern Branch of the National Archives, the LDS Family History
Library and a commercial Genealogy website, Philadelphia has other
records related to passengers immigrating >from Europe to the US.

The port cities in the US offered so-called "ethnic" or "immigrant"
banks, conveniently located in Jewish neighborhoods where newly-arrived
immigrants tended to settle. These banks were commercial enterprises
where recent immigrants could save money and arrange to purchase
steamship tickets to bring their families to the US. In Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania, HIAS preserved the original records of four immigrant
banks formerly operating in the city. To our knowledge, no other such
records have survived, either in Philadelphia or in any of the other
port cities.

Two of these ethnic bank sets of records -- Blitzstein Bank and Lipshutz
Bank -- have been indexed by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater
Philadelphia and can be searched >from the JewishGen All USA database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/USA/. For more information about
these collections, please go to
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/USA/PhilaBlitzstein.htm and
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/USA/PhilaLipshutz.htm.

Does anyone have access to the Philadelphia arrival records or is going
to research them?

I want to know if there is a record of Shmuel/Sam MANDELBAUM arriving in
or around 1915, originally >from Poland.

Aliyat Ha-Noar from Romania #romania

Miriam Taylor <mirtaylo@...>
 

Dear Romania SIG members.

I am looking for people who in 1947 as children left Romania to go with
Aliyat Ha-Noar to Holland and stayed there in Kfar Ha-Noar Ilania near the
City of Apeldorn. I was one of these children, belonged to the Ha-Noar
Ha-Tziony youth movement and was one of the few who remained in Holland
when most of the children went to Israel in the fall of 1948.

Danzig/Gdansk Research Group #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I would like to gauge the level of interest in forming a Danzig/Gdansk Research
Group, the main purposes of which would be to acquire and improve access to
genealogical material that survives >from Danzig, such as parts of the enormous
Danzig Community Archives at the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish
People in Jerusalem, LDS microfilms, Gdansk PSA holdings, and published histories.
If you would be interested in joining such a group (at least to read the emails,
not necessarily to commit any financial support to research projects), or if you
have relevant comments on this subject, please contact me privately. I am not an
expert on Danzig records or families, so please do not ask me where to find
information about your family.

Kishinev Vital Records Update #general

Bob Wascou <robertw252@...>
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce an update to the database: "Kishinev Vital
Records".
This database is a component of both the Romanian and Ukraine databases and can be
found at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Romania/ > or
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Ukraine/ >.

The database contains over 49,950 birth records, over 14,200 marriage or divorce
records and over 17,875 death records >from Kishinev, Moldova for a total of over
74,100 records. Kishinev was formerly in Bessarabia gubernia of the Russian
Empire. These records were filmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah and
provided to JewishGen for transliteration. The original records are located in the
National Archives of the Republic of Moldova in Kishinev (Chisinau).

When completed the Kishinev vital records database will contain birth, marriage,
divorce and death records >from 1829 to 1915 but will not contain all years. Many
records remain to be transliterated. Work to transliterate these records is
ongoing. We are also in the process of working on records >from Bender, Causeni and
Herta. Herta is now in the Ukraine.

In order to complete the transliteration of these records we need dedicated
volunteers who are able and willing to help transliterate the Cyrillic, Hebrew or
Romanian script. We are looking for people who are able to decipher difficult
handwriting and can donate a few hours a week. If you are interested in
volunteering, contact Bob Wascou at
<robertw252@aol.com>.

Detailed information about the Kishinev vital records database can be found at
