SAMLAN family in Romania, Canada #romania

Arnold Samlan
 

First of all, I want to thank all the JewishGen members who have made my
first attempts at tracking my genealogy a pleasant journey.

My great grandmother, Rosie (FRIENDLICH) SAMLAN apparently died in Montreal
in 1915. There is a record that she is buried in the Hungarian Hebrew section
of the Back River cemetery. She is the first relative that I've been able to
locate. I am at a loss for where to find further information about her,
including when she immigrated to Canada, and >from where.

The other puzzle is her husband Moses, whose family appears to be Romanian.
Family lore is that he died in the Spanish American War, although there is no
evidence that he ever lived in the U.S. and no record that I've found among
war casualties (and no clue really on which side he may have fought).

Any ideas about how to locate Canadian immigration records >from 1897 - 1910
would be appreciated, as would any thoughts about locating Romanian emigration
information >from the same period.

Thanks,

Arnold D. Samlan

MATANSKYs of Canada #general

mweiner493@...
 

Hi All,
When I was very young, my mother, whose maiden name was MATANKY, told us
that people would sell their surnames to those who wished to emigrate. She said
her family sold their name to a family and this family added an "s" to make
their new name MATANSKY. She said they emigrated to Canada. My grandparents
came >from Pavoloch in the Ukraine.
I would be interested if anyone knows of this family. Thanks in advance.

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

Sheva KNAUL, daughter of Chaya Brahna DODEL (born in Toporow) and Efraim
"Eber" KNAUL married a Leizer, surname unknown). They had a daughter,
name unknown.

Sheva and her daughter were murdered in the Shoah.

There were reports that her widower, Leizer, survived and ended up in
Buffalo, NY.

Does this sound familiar to anyone in upstate NY?

Tell me your experiences with hiring a genealogist in Europe #general

VivianeCK2003@...
 

Hi Fellow Genners:
I was thinking of hiring a genealogist.
I found a really nice guy who seems to have it all but cannot give me a
total estimate of how much the entire venture will cost me. I am not sure if I
should hire him immediately.
Since I am a complete novice here....could people tell me their experiences
with hiring a genealogist in a European Country and how much I can expect it
to cost me.

BERNSTEIN/BARANSHTEYN #general

This is my yearly posting with my attempt to locate
any remaining family of the Ukrainian/Russian,
BERNSTEIN/BARANSHTEYN family from
Labun/Labunia/Polonnoye, or any town near Polonnoye,
Ukraine.

All the Jewish residents of Labun were murdered and
the town virtually disappeared. There is now a
Novolabun in the Ukraine.

All the BERNSTEINS that immigrated prior to WWII I am
aware of, are either descendants of Harris BERNSTEIN
(London), or Louis BERNSTEIN (my grandfather) of
(Chicago).

Pre 1916 Marriage Records -- Chicago #general

Stewart Bernstein <skbernst123@...>
 

I have recently been informed that Marriage record
recording was not required in Cook County until
January 1, 1916. This information came >from the Cook
County Records Office.

I was informed when searching for the Marriage Record
for my great-greatfather, Louis RUBIN, and his bride,
Anne SHAPIRO, who were married in 1891 (second
marriage for Louis).

Does anyone have any ideas how I may find an alternate
source for that record? I would imagine that the Shul
they were married at probably had the record, but
after 100 years, I doubt if that record is still
around.

Any help woulkd be appreciated.
