Does anyone how Lillian Hester Brandon (daughter of Gabriel Samuel Brandon and
wife of Sir William Bull, 1st Bt.) and Captain Vivian Brandon (father of Life
Baron Brandon of Oakbrook) were related? Someone told me they were brother and
sister but I would like to confirm this.

Thank you.

"Orikhove" (Ukr. spelling) on the Crimean Peninsula #general

steven weiss <szome@...>
 

I belive that my grandfather Sol LISHNOFSKY (changed to LEASH) born in 1895 was
from "Orikhove" (Ukr. spelling) on the Crimean peninsula, Ukraine. Later the
family lived in the capitol of the Crimea: Simferopol. Has anyone done research
on Orikhove?

Thank you for any information.

Seeking: Harry (FINKELSTEIN) STONE #general

Devin and Julia Van Zandt (Home) <sonar230@...>
 

Hello, I am trying to find my great-grandfather's brother, who according to family
memory changed his name >from Henry (Harry) FINKELSTEIN to Henry(or Harry) STONE
and moved to Illinois. The man I seek would have been born around 1874, probably
in Ohio, Missouri, or New York, very slight chance that he was born in England.

Our family fell upon hard times in 1884 and Harry and his younger brother Herman
(my great grandfather) were placed in the Jewish Orphan's Home of Cleveland. Harry
ran away in 1887, supposedly to his mother in Nashville, TN. There is a reference
on his orphanage card that Canadian Emigration contacted them in 1922, so he might
have landed in Canada.

I have information about his parents etc. so if anybody is researching somebody
who sounds like this, please contact me. I have searched census after census
trying to find him, my best hope now is that somebody reads this and realizes that
they know of somebody with a similar story.

Best regards, Julia VZ

Canadian Death Certificates #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Can someone tell me what their experience has been in getting death certificates
from Toronto, Canada >from either 1963 or 1971. Are these records open, available?
In the United States these records would still be considered confidential and only
available to direct family members.

If I got a Canadian death certificate of this era would it have the maiden name of
a woman and the parent's name -- or at least a place for that information to be
filled in? >from the USA I know the information on the actual certificate is
subject to the person who was the informant.

I tried the on line editions of the Toronto newspaper and did not find obits.
Someone >from the list very kindly went out to the cemetery for me and there were
no stones. So the only thing I can think of is the death certificates -- unless
someone has another suggestion that works in Canada.

Many thanks.

Visocki Dvor #general

mhlcswc2@...
 

Rachel GOODMAN GUROVITCH was my aunt. Her naturalization papers say that she was
born in Visocki Dvor. The family states that they were >from Vilna. The other
names are ODENS, ODENHS, ODINETZ. I'm having difficulty narrowing down where
they might actually be from. The closest match that I get on JewishGen is Novy
Dvor in Belarus which seems incorrect to me. However, admittedly I'm unschooled
in this. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Spanish and Portugese Family Research #general

Keith Martin <keithmart@...>
 

hI all,

Are there any genners who have tried tracing their ancestors back to Spain and
Portugal?

I would like to try and get some early family info and would like some help.

I have found my family name as one that was expelled >from portugal, but need help
tracing where they went >from there.

The earliest on my family tree is 1711, so I know they were in England then.

Any help and advice welcomed

Best regards
