Jews as gentiles #general

Barry Boyer <barryboyer@...>
 

I would very much appreciate being directed to studies which discuss German
Jews who went to Russia and Ukraine at the invitation of Catherine. Most
particularly I am interested in those who posed as Gentiles either before
entering Russia or did so sometime during their stay there or left
Russia-Ukraine as Gentiles.

Looking for "unknown" Blumenberg #general

Leslie Weinberg <artsoul@...>
 

Searching my grandfather's nephew, last name Blumenberg, first name
unknown. He is the son of Hene (Eisen) Blumenberg and Jonas Blumenberg,
from Tyczyn, Poland. Maternal grandparents were Schewa and Chaim Eisen.
Last seen in Israel in 1945. He would have been born some time between
1921 and 1923, we think. If anyone knows who this man is, or where any
of his children might be, please contact me privately. Thank you,
Leslie Weinberg

Need Viewmate translation from Polish, please #general

Leslie Weinberg <artsoul@...>
 

Almost a miracle! My grandfather's sister's marriage certificate has
been found and partially translated, thanks to Eden Joachim. However, a
lot of it seems difficult to read and I am hoping that someone can read
it and tell me what it says. Having a last name now means possibly being
able to trace her son, whose first and last names were both unknown till
now. It is Viewmate VM5678 and can be foound at
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=5678

Please email me privately. Thank you, Leslie

New book: "A Dictionary of German-Jewish Surnames" #general

Gary Mokotoff (Optonline) <garymokotoff@...>
 

Avotaynu's latest major work is "A Dictionary of German-Jewish Surnames" by
Lars Menk. It is the largest book we have yet to publish: 832 pages--a work
nearly ten years in the making. My archived files on the book show Menk
first approached Avotaynu in August 1997 with the dictionary, and he has
been improving on it ever since.

The dictionary identifies more than 20,000 German-Jewish surnames >from the
pre-World War I Germany. >from Baden-Wuerttemburg in the south to
Schleswig-Holstein in the north. >from Westfalen in the west to East Prussia
in the east. In addition to providing the etymology and variants of each
name, it identifies where in the Germany the name appeared.

Readers of the book will clearly recognize that the author patterned his
book after the dictionaries of surnames produced by Alexander Beider. But
scholarship grows by improving on your predecessors. Beider shows the
districts where a surname appears; Menk shows the actual towns--and time
period.

I had Dr. Beider preview the book. His comments to me were that "the results
of (Menk's) efforts are excellent. The quality of (the) book is much better
than any other book written on Jewish names in Central and Western Europe.
It is done in exactly the same manner I would have compiled it myself."

The bibliography in the book testifies to the fact that Menk used more than
300 sources of information. As recently as six months ago he told us to
"hold the presses" because he found yet another source of names.

The book will go to the printer this coming week; therefore, it will be in
print in May. Sample pages >from the book, its complete Table of Contents,
and other information can be found at
http://www.avotaynu.com/books/menk.htm.

Ancestry 1880 census-ABRAMOWITZ families #general

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

Following up on Joan Parker's notice of the free accesibility to the 1880
census I put in my ABRAMOWITZ name >from Connecticut. I got all excited when
Anestry wrote that there were 100 ABRAMOWITZ families who came to the (USA
or CT. ?) >from Liverpool which is where my gggrandmother came through and I
even started reviewing the list they had on their website and *&*&^%^** some
thing happened to the computer (I presume mine since I've been having
problems with it) and it "froze".

When I restarted the computer and got into the site including the 1880
census and redid all the previous steps I couldn't, the site wouldn't return
me to the list of ABRAMOWITZs who came to the states via Liverpool.

My request of this group is:

Does anyone know of anyway I could get back to that list that was on
Ancestry?

Does anyone know of any other sources that I can get to ABRAMOWITZs who came
to the states >from Liverpool during the latter half of the 19th cent.


Thanks In Advance
