Searching: SZTERSZTEIN & PIETRUCH - Pultusk, Poland #general

Michael Trapunsky <trapunsky@...>
 

Hi all,

I am looking for information on the SZTERSZTEIN & PIETRUCH families of Pultusk and
the surrounding areas.

The farthest I go back with my SZTERSZTEIN research (which is extremely minimal at
this point) is to my great great great grandparents, Shulem SZTERSZTEIN and Yitka
(maiden name unknown) - both of whom I assume passed away in Pultusk.

Their daughter, Yenta SZTERSZTEIN (1844-1894), married my great great grandfather
Kalman PIETRUCH (1837-1901) in Pultusk sometime before 1862.

I assume that Yenta had siblings, but if there were I don't know anything about
them.

Kalman and Yenta PIETRUCH had 9 children:

Tova Shprintza LASKO
Yitzchak Mayer PIETRUCH
Mendel PIETRUCH
Avraham Shoel PIETRUCH
Usher PIETRUCH
Chava PIETRUCH
Rachel Leah NOWYDWOR
Zalman Leib PIETRUCH
Yitka DANIEL (1974-1941) - who married Yehoshua Chaim DANIEL (1870-1837) - my
great grandparents.

As far as I know, all the PIETRUCH siblings passed away in Pultusk. However, their
descendants eventually emigrated to the USA, Canada, Israel, and South America.

If anyone knows anything about this SZTERSZTEIN & PIETRUCH family I would really
love to hear back >from you.

Thank you very much.

Searching: EDELSTEIN family - Vilna and Pennsylvania #general

Michael Trapunsky <trapunsky@...>
 

Hi all,

I'm searching for an EDELSTEIN family >from Vilna who moved to Hazelton,
Pennsylvania in the early 1900's. Their names were Michel EDELSTEIN and Sarah
Miriam (maiden name unknown).

Michel and Sarah Miriam EDELSTEIN both passed away in Hazelton, PA (Sarah Miriam
in 1925). They had the following children (who also passed away in Hazelton, PA):

Louis - Married Rose Singer around 1910. Passed away in 1949.
Meyer - Never married.
Sam - Never married (Meyer and Sam ran a pharmacy in Hazelton).
Dora - Divorced (I don't know what her married name was).
Ben - Married Bessie (maiden name unknown).

They are related to my BLINDER - ZISKIND - KOWARSKI - MINKOWITZ family, but no one
seems to know how or if it was through Michel or Sarah Miriam.

If anyone knows anything about this family I would really love to hear back >from
you.

Thanks very much.

Searching: RAPAPORT family - Pultusk, Poland #general

Michael Trapunsky <trapunsky@...>
 

Hi all,

I'm researching the RAPAPORT family >from Pultusk and Warsaw, Poland and would
appreciate hearing >from anyone doing similar research.

My father-in-law told me that his grandfather, Yekusiel Jacob (Ksiel) RAPAPORT,
was born in Warsaw between 1880-1883, but on Ksiel's Petition for Naturalization
it said that he was born in Pultusk. I searched the JRI-Poland database and came
up with a number of RAPAPORTs >from Pultusk but on the JGFF there isn't anyone
searching for that family.

Ksiel's parents were Sholom David and Rivka Chaia RAPAPORT. I assume they were
from Pultusk as well or at least lived there for a while. Their other children
(that I know of) were:

1- Sarah (Rapaport) ANTOSOFSKY - born 1879
2- Rachel or Rose (Rapaport) DANIELS - born 1882
3- Possibly a brother - but I don't know his name

Ksiel came to Newark, New Jersey in 1921 and later brought over his wife Faige
(nee FRIEDMAN) and their children: Joseph, Mollie, Rose, and Sarah.

If anyone knows anything about this family I would really love to hear back >from
you.

Thanks very much.

Hi all,

I am looking for information on the GOLDSTEIN & DANIEL(S) families of Pultusk and
the surrounding areas.

The farthest I go back with my GOLDSTEIN research (which is extremely minimal at
this point) is to my great great great grandparents, Yitzchak Isaac GOLDSTEIN and
Chana (maiden name unknown). Yitzchak Isaac GOLDSTEIN died before 1865 in Poland
(possibly Pultusk, but I'm not 100% sure). Their daughter, Miriam Rivka GOLDSTEIN
(1838-1915) married my great great grandfather Yoseph DANIEL (1835-1894) in
Pultusk sometime before 1865.

I assume that Miriam Rivka had siblings, but if there were I don't know anything

Yoseph DANIEL and Miriam Rivka GOLDSTEIN had 9 children:

Yitzchak Isaac DANIEL
3 daughters who died in infancy
Breindel KOHN
Berish DANIEL
Yakov Aryeh DANIEL
Sylka DANEIL
Yehoshua Chaim DANIEL (1870-1837) - my great grandfather. He married Yitka
PIETRUCH (1974-1941).

All the DANIEL siblings passed away in Pultusk except for Berish who I believe
came to the USA in the 1920's or 30's and changed his surname to DANIELS.

Also, members of this family had a horse and buggy, and later a bus service, that
ran between Pultusk and Warsaw, Poland.

Seeking: Grandmother Matel/Martha/Molly/Malka FEUERBERG also,FAERBERBG #general

idac818@...
 

Dear Genners,
I will begin with my father and lead into what I know about his mother, my gm. My
father is listed as Boruch FEUORBERG on ships manifest, arrival date Nov.16,1910.
Birth record >from Poland listed as Baruch FEUERBERG, which was americanized to
FAERBERG.
Came >from Skala to USA through EllisIsland. His aunt Chawe BERLAD met him there
and he went home with her to 75 Stanton Ave. [or Street ?] New York City.
According to date of my father's arrival would he have been here during 1910
census? I was hoping this would help me find information about my gm. On my
father's birth record she is listed as Matel FEUERBERG. Possibility that she came
before my father and was living with this relative.Have not been able to find
information about her arrival.
I had a picture of my gm that was taken in a photo studio on Houston Street,
New York City.
In the back of the picture frame there was newspaper used for filling. It was just
advertising ,Philadelphia Evening Bulletin dated Oct.30,1918. Don't know if that
date means anything.
I do know that she lived with my parents >from the time they married in May 1924.
I have a copy of the 1930 census where she is listed as Martha, also known as
Molly and Malka. She lived with us until the day she died in 1942.
I do have my gm's death certificate which lists her husbands name as Solomon, her
fathers name Yudel and her mother as Annie BRAINER, birth place Austria.
My father's records show that he was born in Skala and I was lead to believe that
is where they lived.
I have tried EllisIsland , Castle Gardens and many other avenues with no luck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Obtaining Canadian Immigration Records #general

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

I have one additional thought about getting Canadian immigration data:

If your relative happened to visit the U.S., after about 1895 or so, there may be
a record when he or she crossed the border, and that record may possibly contain
the date and ship of immigration to Canada. With a specific date and/or ship,
your search for immigration recordsis made much simpler.

These records are collectively known as the St. Albans Lists, but information was
gathered by manyof the cities on the US-Canadian border, including Detroit,
Buffalo, Rochester, Niagrara Falls, and many other cities. You can search the
JewishGen Discussion group Archvies for details on these microfilms. Even if you
have a year of arrival >from the census, having more details, and/or confirming
that year, can be useful.

Perfsonally, I found that the records kept by Detroit noted only that the person
arrived in the US by railroad, but the Buffalo, NY records noted the year ship,
port, and sometimes date of Canadian arrival.

Re: Finding the town of origin of an early immigrant to US #general

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear Shari,
Rotterdam departures may be available, depending on which ship your relative
traveled on. The Mormon Library has departure records of the Holland-America line
on microfiche. There is both an index and the actual passenger lists. Since this
is fiche, once you've ordered it, your local library gets to keep it forever.

I did a bit of research, and the P. Caland was indeed a Holland-America ship,
built in 1874. So you ought to be able to manage your way through the index and
find the original record.

Please note that, of course, the records are in Dutch . . . Which, using our
familiar Latin alphabet, isn't too hard to work through.

In my research, I came across a website which sells original ship memorabilia,
including passenger lists. For the P. Caland, they have pasenger lists >from 1891
and 1892. The website is <http://www.oceanliner.com/passlist.htm>. I have no
personal interest in this website.

Finding Town of Origin: the 1942 "Old Mens" Draft #general

phylliskramer1@...
 

Shari Kantrow asked how to find her grandfather's birth town. There is a wonderful
source I've used when i had no other place to go........the Old Men's draft - in
1942 all men born between 1877 and 1897 had to register. They completed these
draft cards, which asked for place of birth. The registrations are in the local
NARA (ie: Massachusetts for Boston, NYC for NY) and are indexed by county (ie:
Bronx, Brooklyn), then by surname. When I use this resource, I also look around
for relatives of the same surname.
Happy Hunting!
