Brooklyn Daily Eagle (RE: Link to newspapers in US) #general

Mimi Katz's posting reminded me to share with the group a great resource I
just recently discovered. The Brooklyn (NY) Public Library has completely
digitized the Brooklyn Daily Eagle (newspaper) >from 1841-1902. They have
done a marvelous job. The full text of the newspaper over all of those years
is completely searchable online, and it links to actual images of the
newspaper with search terms highlighted. For anyone with ancestry in
Brooklyn, it's a great resource! Check it out here:

New York to Argentina? #general

Elaine Bush <erbush@...>
 

After matching up names, a date of death as written on a gravestone in
Buenos Aires, and a birth date on US census records, it appears that a
relative of mine moved >from New York to Argentina (somewhere between
1900 and 1930!).

"Sarah / Sophie REST de SCHVARTZ, daughter of Yaakov," was buried in
Tablada cemetery in 1953 at the age of 63.
Sarah REST is listed on the 1900 US census records of New York, born
1894, the daughter of Jacob. ( I know that there is a discrepancy of 4
years.)

It is possible, I suppose that there was another Sarah REST, born
approximately the same time, and the daughter of Jacob, but for now I'm
going on the guess that this is the same person. Does anyone have any
experience relatives immigrating to Argentina >from the United States?

I believe there was a notable yeshiva in Kamenetz-Litovsk (your Kamenets).
I believe you are correct about the yeshiva. My great-grandfather left a

Searching: Surname KIZILORGA, Istanbul #general

nese sen
 

Dear Jewishgen users,


I'm trying to find my relatives >from my grandmother's side.
My maternal grandmother's maiden name was KIZILORGA.
Her full name is Merkada KIZILORGA.
She's born on 1915 or 1916 in Ortakoy, Istanbul.
Her parents' names were Salomon and Sara.
She had three sisters. One of them was a tailor.
She died in Istanbul. Another sister, as far as I know,
went to France. Her name was Eugenia KIZILORGA.
And also my grandmother had an uncle, Mr. Mando DIAMANDI.
He used to live in Istanbul, Beyoglu too.

KIZILORGA is a very uncommon surname.

So even if some information about this name could be
brought to light, I would be most appreciative.

My Researcher ID 154849

thanks in advance,
Nese Sen, Istanbul, Turkey

Sarah Hinde bat Yoseph - Volozhin family #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

I've posted this in the past but I'll try again:

Does anyone know of a Sarah Hinde (married Shlomo KANTOR) bat Yoseph who
lived in Pinsk during the mid 19th cent. who may have been a descendant of
Reb Chaim of Volozhin or anyone in his family.

Sarah Hinde immigrated to Yerushalayim in 1873 with four children (her
husband was then 33 years old) so I presume she was born around 1840.

Good chances that there is a LANDA(U) connection.

Rabbi Eliyahu LANDA(U) #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

In a scribbled note with some family roots there is the name R' Eliyahu
LANDA (in hebrew without the "vav").

The only comments I seem to have on him is that he was connected somehow to
my ggggreatgrandfather R' Eliezer KANTOR (who is noted as a Rosh Yeshiva in
Slonim). Since the note I have is only of family tree I presume that the
connection between LANDA and R' Eliezer was father-in-law/son-in-law.


The time frame should be mid-19th cent.

Any information regarding the above names-LANDA/KANTOR (of Slonim) would be
appreciated.

Re: Was FINDER family Jewish? #general

Jeff Hecht <jeff.hecht@...>
 

This sounds uncannily like the case of my paternal grandfather, whose
family also originated >from Posen (although he was born in Breslau).

It's certainly plausible that his family was Jewish but chose to
assimilate after settling in the USA, but you should check back to their
early records both in the US and Germany/Poland to look for any
information that might tell. In my case, I found my grandfather was
recognized as Jewish in the upstate New York town where he had a
business in the 1920s and early 1930s, but by the time I was growing up
in the 1950s he had become "German." Perhaps events in the 30s and 40s
led the family to assimilate or hide their origins >from the younger
generation. I was also able to locate distant cousins who had not hidden
their Jewish origins. If you can track down any such relatives, they
could be a big help. -- Jeff Hecht

me the information, but I finally discovered that he had actually put it
into the Mormon database. In finding this information, I discovered that
the Finders were not born in Germany, but in Poland. I can not find any
more information. Searching your databases, it would appear that Finder is
a Jewish name. My grandpa said that he never knew anything about the
Finders that remained in Europe. His dad and grandpa never mentioned them.
There used to be pictures, but for some reason they were intentionally
destroyed by my GG aunt sometime in the 30's or 40's. This is what I know:
John (Gott on the Ellis Island records) FINDER was born about 1852 in
Graboszewo, Poland. His wife, Suzanna WEISER, was born about 1854 in
Grabawo, Poland. Suzanna's parents were Jacob WEISER(born 1828, Grabawo,
Poland) and Susana RIEKA (born 1832, Grabawo, Poland). All of their
children born before they emigrated were born in Nowa Weis, Poland. My
great-grandfather, Amos Finder, was born July 23, 1880.
I know they left Poland when Amos was small because he spoke German when
they moved to the US. They emigrated here in 1892. I can not even begin to
explain what it feels like to know that I might be of Jewish decent. I've
always known how horrible all of the persecution that has happened for what
seems to be forever is and was. But, to know that my own family could have
suffered that and perhaps that's why they left Europe, makes it seem so much
more real. Of course, I don't want to claim Jewish decent unless it's true.
The Finder name is fairly uncommon and I've never actually known anyone
named Finder outside of my own family. The only search that has ever turned
any information up about the name Finder has been on your web site. I would
greatly appreciate anyone who has any information or advice for me. I feel
like I can't possibly let this rest until I know the truth. If my GGG
grandparents and back were Jewish, then that needs to be known, not hidden
away like a dirty secret. Thank you for any help that you may offer.
