I Am Seeking Any And All Information On My RAKOFF Ancestors-So Look At VM6076 #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello To All

I have just found this very young and striking photo of my
great-grandfather(David Rakoff)on my mothers side of the family. All of
the other previous photo's I have come across show him as an old man.

I am seeking any information on him and his siblings. I would like to
find out who his parents were and if by chance they ever came to
america. I know that he was born in Minsk, Russia about 1884. From
there he migrated to Canada in 1907 and then finally New York in 1917.

He married Anna Mendelson in 1921 and had two kids Ruth(my grandma) and
Murray my great uncle(died 10/2001). I know he had a brother named
Isadore who was born about 1888 and died on 6/14/1938. I would love to
find out more about him too. According to a cousin I talked to he was
not a very nice person.

He abandoned his kids and wife to come to America. He then remarried I
believe and had kids with that wife. I am not sure of when he came to
America. I know that he would have never sent for his kids still in
russia if my great-grandfather had not told him too.

Anyways the new wife wanted nothing to do with his original kids. It
was not a very good situation, so eventually some of the kids went to
live with my great-grandfather until they were old enough to be on
their own. Those kids were Sonia, Helen, Benjamin, & Samuel Rakoff.

So if anyone out there can shed some light on these ancestors of mine I
would greatly appreciate. Isadore Rakoff was tailor/Clothing Designer,
and David was a laborer/house painter.

Barney Stein - Chicago #general

Adam Block
 

I am trying to find information about Barney STEIN. He married
Stephanie GROSS sometime before 1918. He died on 11 July 1943 in Chicago.

I would like, if at all possible, to obtain a copy of the marriage
certificate. I am also interested in locating the place he was buried.

If anyone can offer suggestions as to how to go about this, it would be
greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

BARNETT #general

Bonsobel@...
 

Hello,

I am searching for my husband's great, great, great grandparents the
BARNETTS. They were born in Russia, emigrated to England and were in New York
City by 1881. They were the parents of Sarah SPINGARN, mother of Joel and Arthur,
wife of Elias. The SPINGARNS were a prominent family so I figure that some of
their heirs may know the BARNETTS' first names. Sarah had two sisters that I
know of, Rachel LESSER and Rebecca LERMAN.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Rohel Village-Town in Israel #general

You ask:

Subject: Rohel Village-Town in Israel
Dear Genres,
I was told by someone there is/was a village, town named ROHEL in Israel.
Unfortunately, I have no idea what region. Although Rohel is not a Jewish surname
it is a variant of Rachel, according to "Jewish Personal Names" book, by Rabbi
Shmuel Gorr.
I have searched the Internet for maps, etc., but I am unable to find one detailed
enough or "searchable" road map for Israel.
Can you help me finding Rohel village-town in Israel?

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~prohel/names/rohelinfo.html
No, regretfuly I cannot. There is neither "Kefar Rahel" nor "Qiryat Rahel"
(village, town) in Israel. There is "Kever Rahel" which could be
misunderstood by that "someone" as "Kefar..", but this is the Grave of our
Mother.
Anyway, even if there was such a village here it hardly could be the place
of origin of your surname...
shabbath shalom,
Dr.Josef Ash
