Hi,
I was wondering if I can find the names of stillborns in the Death Records
Index for Quebec for the 1920's or they were not recorded at all?

Thanks

In an effort to determine the exact origin shtetl and/or gubernia of our
LEAF family, listed below are the given names within the descendants of
two brothers, Joseph Osher LEAF nee LIFSCHITZ and Shimshon LEAF nee
LIEBERMAN/LOEW (pronounced LEV).

Just recently 25 year old information has been sent to us that the
family could have been >from Latvia. A member OBM of the Joseph Osher LEAF
family had memory of being told her father was originally >from Odessa, Ukraine.

According to the Ellis Island Data Base, via www.stevemorse.org, the
Shimshon LEAF family came >from Swislowitz, Russia (now Swisloch in
Belarus.
This information is confusing since there are three different possible
locations of where our family began.


Joseph Osher LIFSCHITZ (as we believe) was married to Basha JASELOFF
Descendants given names:

Sampson (Shmuel)
Sarah (Sorah maybe)
Harry Aaron (Hershel Aharon)
Anna (Channah)

Shimshon LIEBERMAN/LOEW was married to Alter Neome AIN
Descendants given names:

Samuel Isaiah (Shmuel Yishaiah)
Max (Mendel)
Morris (Moshe)


If anyone has these names on their family tree, I would greatly
appreciate hearing >from you, privately.

us in Las Vegas now have an opportunity to listen to 31 of the sessions.

We are making the complete set available at a very affordable $35 plus

the country to which the set is being delivered and will show up when you
go through the ordering system in the Mall. Nothing is charged to your

system. Ron will start burning CDs and shipping as soon as he begins to
get the orders. Hopefully you will keep him busy for the next few weeks! <g>

To see a complete listing of which of the sessions were recorded visit

ships's list question #general

mpcamitta@...
 

I found a reference to Yossel BASSEIN, traveling on the ship Amalfi, in
1890. His port of entry is listed as New York, but his final
destination is listed as Settle, along with several other passengers,
with unrelated surnames, and many coming >from different locations in
Eastern Europe. I'd assumed that Settle was Seattle, but in fact, there
is a Settle in the U.K. Is it possible that Yossel traveled >from
Hamburg on the Amalfi to New York, and then back to the U.K.? Do any of
you know of other Settles in other places in the world?
Also, Yossel's place of birth was listed as Borrisov, Poland. Do any of
you know of such a place? I checked shtetl seeker, but there is no
spelling that corresponds exactly to Borrisov in Poland, although there
is a Borrisov in Belarus.
Thank you in advance,

Researching my Jewish origins: KOPPE, BISMARCK? #general

scott hardy <hardy_128@...>
 

To whom it may concern,

I have been researching my alleged Jewish origins for some time now on
JewishGen.

My family came >from Germany in 1880. Their name was KOPPE. My
greatgrandfather's name was Albert Herman Koppe. His father's name was
Ernest Koppe. His mother's name was Wilhelmina Bismarck Koppe. My aunt
told me that Koppe was a derivative of the name Jacobs. My
greatgrandfather's mother was an illegitamate daughter of Otto Von Bismarck.
I am wondering if Bismarck could have been of Jewish descent, because I
noticed that his mother's maiden name was Mencken. I have seen this name
many times on JewishGen.

I would appreciate any help >from anybody out there.

Re: Were cousin marriages legal in NY in 1909? #general

Linda Altman <familysearch@...>
 

Define "cousin" before jumping to conclusions. In many families "cousins"
are not necessarily blood relatives. In my family there were plenty of
cousins who married. Most were not blood relationships. There are a lot of
step and half relationships, and there were a lot of marriages within the
step and half families. It all depends on how we define kin.

Am I worrying for naught?

Ivye Question #belarus

Charles Epstein <cepstein@...>
 

Hi Folks,

I'm trying to prepare a basic genealogy of my family. My grandfather's name
was Yitzchak Yaakov EPSZHTEIN. All I know is that he was a blacksmith in Ivye.
I've read the Necrology (I own a copy), and nothing is really mentioned.

My questions is thus: Does anyone know how I can contact any Ivye survivors
to ask them if they recall my family members.

Thanks in advance,

Charles Epstein
MODERATOR NOTE: A search of the JewishGen Family Finder (www.jewishgen.org/jgff)
shows 42 people researching the town of Iwye, Belarus! Also the Pages of Testimony
at Yad Vashem are online (www.yadvashem.org)
