Unfortunately, when I contacted them not long ago, they seemed to have little knowledge of the history of their school, let alone any historical records.  Thank you for your suggestion.

Re: Lithuania - Soloveitchik Brothers with Same Given Name #lithuania

genealogyjew@...
 

I am trying to understand the situation. Are you saying that there are two men, who you think are brothers, one of whom has the last name Shames and the other Soloveichik? This seems very unusual, although there are situations in which this may be true. I have considered several situations according to the information you already presented, but my thoughts are mostly conjecture, because I think there is very little information presented, and it would help to know all the details available to you, including the specific names, dates, places, events, documents that mentions these data, and the exact quotations made in the available documents that present the information.

Thank you for responding, Amybeth.  I have heard of the famous composer, but I do not think we are related.  I am in touch with California Shainskys, including the name you mentioned.  I could not find anything useful in FamilySearch, but Yad Vashem may yield a clue.     Stan Solinsky

Phil,

What year did this happen?  Have you obtained the death certificate to see the medical cause?

My grandfather was a cutter.  I can imagine lots of things that could have happened.   Before antibiotics if an infection set in from a wound it could be very hard to treat.

Perhaps an accident might have warranted a newspaper mention?  Try searching his name at:
www.fultonhistory.com
It is a free site of old digitized NY newspapers (although expanding to other states also.)

Re: Lost family in Ukraine-a dead end #ukraine

Thanks for your offer to help, Chuck.  We are all from Belaya Tserkov, as far as I know.   This is referred to repeatedly in the ship manifests, old photos, correspondence.  I have envelopes with the street addresses as:  #18 Pomachnia St and #38 Kievski St.  Whether these are house addresses or places to pick up mail, I cannot know.  A Chabad rabbi in Belaya Tserkov sent me photos of the addresses a few years ago, but it looks like it was all rebuilt after the war.  Other Y DNA matches with the Shainsky name come from Ignatova (sp?), closer to Kyiv.  I searched further in Yad Vashem and found Shainski pages with a possible name from the tree in MyHeritage.   Still searching!   Thanks for responding.

Lithuania - Soloveitchik Brothers with Same Given Name #lithuania

Perry Shorris
 

My fourth-great-grandfather was Movsha Shames, and Lithuanian records indicate that his brother was Meyer Soloveitchik - part of the rabbinic dynasty. One of Meyer’s brothers was Moshe Soloveitchik, the rabbi of Kovno in the late 1700s. My understanding is that “Movsha” and “Moshe” are essentially the same name. Could Movsha Shames and Moshe Soloveitchik been brothers, given the normal Ashkenazi tradition of not giving brothers the same given name?

What's a Cutter? #usa #general

YaleZuss@...
 

Phil,
 
It may help to determine how "cutting" was done.  If it was a single piece of cloth, cut with a pair of scissors, it's hard to identify fatal scenarios.  If we're talking multiple layers cut with a large knife, I can conceive of that knife inflicting a fatal wound.  Another possibility is a fire in the factory.
 
Particularly if there was a fire, the incident may have been covered in local papers.  If you have your ancestor's date of death, check the next couple of days.

Re: Hit a roadblock finding death certificate for NYC: names, certificate number, but no death year #general #usa #belarus

laurackatz@...
 

Hi Rafael,

I had a similar experience to yours while looking for my great-grandfather Solomon Gantcher's death certificate, also after receiving an Ancestry.com hint. It listed his name, his wife's name Pauline, and that of his son Louis, and while it gave the certificate number, there was no date of death. I had always assumed he died in Russia sometime before 1910 and was very surprised to find that he may have died in NYC.

I filled out the NYC Archives order online (leaving out of course the death date) and emailed it with my credit card payment. Within a few days I got a return email with a copy of both sides of the death certificate attached. There was no problem with the missing date for some reason. However, it was not my great-grandfather Solomon's certificate--it was that of his son Louis! When I later checked, I found that another Ancestry.com hint had shown up for my great-grandmother Pauline (Solmon's wife), also with the same certificate number, and this time again for their son Louis. Mystery solved.

It seems Ancestry.com's hints do not in any way say whose death the certificate is for, but just lists the names of the parents, their birthplaces, and the name of their child. There's a separate hint generated for each person on the Ancestry record. This was an unfortunate example of Ancestry's hints sometimes causing more confusion than help.

Have you tried looking on Passenger arrival records for their visit to USA.
There were fewer immigrants in the 1930's and you might get lucky.

My father was a dress cutter starting after WWII. A dress cutter was a person who worked for a company that made dresses. His job was to pull rolls of material back and forth along a long table. When the pile reached a certain height he would put the pattern parts that made up  the dress on top of the pile and would use a machine to cut them out.
