There was a webinar recently about the meat strike, given by Scott D. Seligman, who wrote a book on the subject (the book came out in October). You might want to contact him.

Re: NEINKEN-other surnames? Other countries? #latvia #names

There were Nankin families from Birzai Lithuania who emigrated to South Africa and lived in Durban. I have ancestors from Birzai who went to Riga.  Some of their descendants also emigrated to South Africa.

Re: Help needed finding Mollie Schiff's immigration papers #records

pathetiq1@...
 

Hallo Sue, 
Some observations regarding Mollie Schiff immigration :
A) It is possible that she was never naturalized. 
B) If her father was naturalized,  she didn't have to file papers herself. 
C) She married a US citizen so she  automatically became US citizen. 

Regarding the year she arrived, have in mind that census records are not a very reliable source.  Especially the 1900 census, which gives the arrival year as 1890, is full of inaccuracies. According to her death certificate she arrived in 1893. The Chiene  Schiff  that arrived on Aug 1st, 1895 is most likely the person you are looking for.  As you probably have noticed, her father and brother sailed,  also,  from Hamburg and arrived in late July 1895.  Although there is some distance between Slutzk and Schweksne, it is possible that Mollie had relatives living  there or it was a stop during her trip for the US. 

Another detail I have noticed is that her mother's name in her death certificate is given as Sofia Cohen while in her marriage record as Sophie Rosafsky. Any explanation for this?

Re: Town or village of Piotrkow #poland

Heidi Urich
 

There is a huge open pit coal mine near Piotrkow Trybunalski where one of my ancestral towns, Kucow, and several other towns used to exist.  It's known as the Belchatow Coal Mine.   Perhaps your town is among the vanished towns and might be found on a 19th century map.

Locating NYC Butcher Shop Licenses and Records #records #usa

Jacob Heisler
 

Hi everyone,

my ggg-grandfather Nathan MINKOWITZ (c. 1848-1917) worked as a butcher
in the Lower East Side from the mid-1890s to about 1910 and had a shop
on 126 Monroe St. I know his store was involved in the 1902 Kosher
Meat Strike (the Forward translated am article from the strike that
mentioned a butcher shop at 126 Monroe), but not what exactly happened
to him and his store during the strike.

What I'm wondering is if it's possible for me to locate any official
NYC records about Nathan and his butcher shop, like a butchers license
or something related to his shop. And if such documentation exists,
would it be possible to order a copy sent to me or would I have to
wait for COVID to end and visit some NYC office in person?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

From,
Jacob Heisler

Does anyone recognize the family in this photograph #photographs

I believe this is a photograph of my grandmothers brother and his family. She was Shayneh Bers (Berz Beares) born in Rokiskis 1881. Her father was Yisrael Eedel. She moved to South Africa and married Israel Salmenson (?Schneerson) in 1909. The photograph can be viewed on viewmate at the following:

Bensabat family Lisbon Portugal. #general

sansilva729@...
 

Hello all,

I am doing the Geneology Tree of a small town in Portugal (Girabolhos, Seia).  A lady named Amilia (Amelia) Annette Bensabat (daughter of Jacob Bensabat and Emma Bensabat of Lisbon) ends up settling in Girabolhos with her husband Augusto Henriques Ferraz (born in Girabolhos, Seia) and having children there.   All of these children are shown as illegitimate children in their Catholic Baptisms, since the parents were never married in the Catholic Church.  I am to believe that they were married in Lisbon, (hoping that there was a ketubah somewhere) at some point before moving to Girabolhos.  All of the children were baptized as adults in order to marry in the Catholic Church.  I was looking for a place where I can find information about the Bensabat family from Lisbon, Portugal. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Augusto Henriques Ferraz (+/-1857)
Amilia Annette Bensabat (no information)

Children are:
 * Dinah Regina (Dec 2, 1900)
* Antonio Salvador (Aug 24, 1902)
* Levy Bensabat (Nov 5, 1907)
* Gabriel (Jan 4, 1910)
* Dario Augusto (May 2, 1913)
* Irene Edwiges (Mar 22, 1917)

thank you
