Amended surname SHERIL in Viewmate 5905 #lithuania

Yehudh bn Shlmo
 

Dear Litvaksig,

Thank you very much for your translations. I was told
by several people that on Viewmate 5905 for the birth
of Hirsch BLOSHTEYN in Keidan Lithuania, there is a
box which shows a name amendment of SHERIL in the
father's name. The name of the father was Dovid ben
Girsh Bloshteyn. I am assuming this is for the Surname
and not his first name since SHERIL would be a
feminine name (at least in Hebrew).

If the surname was SHERIL and at sometime changed to
BLOSHTEYN/BLUESTEIN, it seems like a very odd last
name. Is anyone familiar with the name SHERIL from
Lithuania?

Sincerely,
Yehudah BenShlomo
Texas, U.S.A.

Perhaps someone down in Australia knows or knew this man. As a DP he
emigrated to Australia >from Munich in 1949. He may have travelled with
his Russian girlfriend. Unfortunately I never knew his last name. Please
respond privately. Thank you.

Roslyn DIAMOND #general

David Edelman <pappapeach@...>
 

Dear JewishGen;
While searching through some other genealogy sites, I found a posting
from a ROSLYN DIAMOND, looking for a couple, STEIN-ROSENBERG, from
Dvinsk, Latvia.
Since my STEIN-ROSENBERG are >from the same town, I was anxious to get
in contact with her. However, I have been unable to.
Although I do not see her listed with the JGFF, I do know there are
some people named DIAMOND on the list, so I am hoping someone here
knows her. So, if anyone knows her or of her, please have her contact
me, privetly, of course.
Thank you very much,
David Edelman,

Eta TOFFEL - Yiddish theater in NYC #general

Sheila Toffell
 

Has anyone any knowledge of Eta TOFFEL (spelling may not be correct) who was
apparently involved in the Yiddish Theater in NYC?

My nephew is a doctoral student in London, and is doing research on the
Yiddish theater. He came across a reference to Eta TOFFEL in a book he found
in junk shop. As the name is the same as ours, we are intrigued.

Can anyone help enlighten him (and me)?

MODERATOR NOTE: JewishGen hosts the Yiddish Theater and Vaudeville Research
Group. One of its goals is to "provide an electronic discussion group in
the form of a JewishGen Yt and V mailing list for those genealogists tracing
relatives who were involved in Yiddish theater and/or vaudeville in any
capacity, in any location, and in any time period".
Please consider posting your message there as well.

Intro: my German and Dutch U.K. ancestors #unitedkingdom

Pweinthal@...
 

Hello fellow genners.
I have researched my family history for 6 years. English is my native
language, though I speak or read several European languages badly including German,
Danish, Dutch, and French. I consider myself an advanced computer and library
researcher. Family members emigrated to England in the 19th century.
Resources examined include the Jewish Victorian, The Times of London, the London
Gazettes, and indexes to census records.

The WEINTHAL family dates back to the 1750s in Emden, Ost Friesland, Kingdom
of Hannover, Germany. My g-g-grandfather Solomon Joshua WEINTHAL (1827-1916)
married in the Great Synagogue of London on 5 August 1857. His wife was
Catherine BIERMAN (1832-1904) >from Amsterdam. Her Dutch name was Ketrien BEERMAN.
Her Hebrew name was Gitla bat Moshe. They lived in Whitechapel where Solomon
was a tailor.

I have birth certificates for 3 daughters, but cannot find certificates for
the 2 boys born in 1860 and 1865. Does anyone know how I can find Mohel bris
records?

In the 1860s, WEINTHAL family members >from Deventer and Rotterdam, NL moved
to Manchester and Chorlton (which I guess is a suburb of Manchester.) The
family was in the tobacco businesses.

I have an 1899 death certificates for Henrietta THEMANS (nee Weinthal). Her
second husband was tobacconist Joel THEMANS (1806-1928). Her nephew F.S.
BERLYN was in attendance at her death. Henrietta (born Jette) had a sister
Esther who married Simon BERLIJN >from Utrecht. The Themans lived at 309 Oxford
St., Manchester in 1871. They lived at Big Oxford Road, South Manchester U.D. in
1899. Henry THEMANS changed his surname to THORNSLEY in 1915. He was a
tobacconist and resided at 6 Poplar-avenue, Whalley Range, Manchester.

Adelaide STRANDERS (nee Weinthal) (1824-1884) was Henriette's sister. She was
an opera singer and in 1859 married the London jeweler David STRANDERS (his
second marriage). She died in Chorlton, Manchester.

I am also seek information about Asher WEINTHAL who declared bankruptcy in
August 1859. Warehouseman. Location: Cannon Street and elsewhere, London.

Adolph WEINTHAL was a composer and instructor. The British Library has 8
compositions written or arranged by him. The publication dates range >from 1874 to
1898. Several were published by W. Czerny and St. Cecilia. I've had no luck
finding any personal information.

Publisher Leo WEINTHAL, O.B.E., died at Sunbury-on-Thames in 1930. Married,
but no children.

Perhaps these names ring a bell, or our families travelled in similar
circles. Advice or information would be appreciated!

Just to let you all know - the 1 week free trial of the UK Times on-line has
finished! Of course, I just HAD to give it one more try, but the password
is no longer valid. By the way, did anyone notice that they removed the
Ancestry link on Saturday?

I hope you all managed to take advantage of the trial - I certainly enjoyed
the opportunity!

Best wishes to you all for Pesach,

Re: A Jew from Romania- the Spanish-American War #general

PJL427@...
 

Texas was not a theater of the Spanish American War. It was a theater of the
Mexican American war and there were Jews in that as well as the Texas
Revolution.

The Spanish American War was fought mostly in places like the Philippines and
Puerto Rico and Cuba.

My grandfather was stationed in Corrigador just after the turn of the
century. He was >from Romania and got citizenship by joining the military. His
brother was a Veterinarian and ended up marrying the daughter of one of the Jewish
officers who was actually born in the Phillipines. My great uncle became a
career officer in the US Army. The Jewish War Veterans Post in San Francisco is
named for his son, a naval officer killed aboard a ship in WWII (He was
named for my great great grandfather Braila, Romania)

The point is that there were Jews in every American War including the Spanish
American War as well as the Mexican American War.

With typing in the surname of your relative, you should get some help. Since
the late 19th C. was very close to the time of immigration to U.S. there is
no reason to believe that many who were >from nations other than England or
France would be referred to as Romanians. People today still refer to others
by their ethnic descendancy. And Jews were in this country since the 17th
C. why wouldn't they be soldiers?

Texas was one of the largest theaters of the Spanish American War. Have I
checked out Sam Houston's descendancy? No? But he could have been a
lantsman!? Good luck. >>>
