Dear Julius Cohen,
Have you tried searching for this family on the Ellis Island
Database via the Stephen Morse "One Step" search engine for Jewish
passengers?
If you choose the "sounds like" Jacobson you will get a plethora of
possibilities with variant spellings such as Jacobsen, Jacobsohn as well
as Jacobson.

OPPENHEIMER and GOMPEL families #general

jdnorman <jdnorman@...>
 

Hello,

I am researching the OPPENHEIMER family of Aschenhausen, Thuringia
(Grand-Duchy of Saxe-Weimar). The earliest direct ancestor I have found is
Yitzak (Levi) OPPENHEIMER who settled in Aschenhausen in 1749. He arrived
there >from the small town of Wasungen, (Grand Duchy of Saxe-Meiningen)
Thuringia. Some of his children or more probably grand-children adopted the
name of either WERTHEIMER or WESTHEIMER. The others retained the family
name of OPPENHEIMER. His grandson Joseph OPPENHEIMER was a grain-dealer and
married Miriam GUMPEL or GOMPEL of Meiningen, Saxe-Meiningen.

Joseph OPPENHEIMER's grandsons, Hermann and Yitzak (John) emmigrated to the
US in the middle of the 19th century, settling in Wilkes-Barre, PA.

If anybody has any information about these families, I would be very pleased
to hear >from them.

Many thanks,

John NORMAN

Dear Julius Cohen,
Have you tried searching for this family on the Ellis Island
Database via the Stephen Morse "One Step" search engine for Jewish passengers?
If you choose the "sounds like" Jacobson you will get a plethora of
possibilities with variant spellings such as Jacobsen, Jacobsohn as well as
Jacobson.
When I tried searching for passengers whose first name started with
"B" and whose last name sounded like Jacobson, these were some of the
possibilities returned that might be of interest to you to check out:

Jacobsohn, Basche Berczeno, Russia 1907 17 59
Jacobsohn, Base Liban, Russia 1906
Jacobson, Basche Jacobstadt 1906 20
Jacobson, Basche Minsk, Russia 1907 20
Jacobson, Bose Liverpool, England 1905 28

I briefly looked at all four of these entries and the last one seemed the
most promising, as it was the only one with other Jacobsons listed on the
text manifest;

Aboard the Baltic sailing >from Liverpool, arriving on Dec. 8, 1905 were a
family of three --
Jacobson, Bose (28), Rachel (4), and Chaike (10m) -- and all three
appeared to be going to a husband named Mendel Jacobson on Ludlow Street.
Could this be the family you are searching for???
As for Lithuanian records regarding this family, have you visited the
LitvakSIG's All Lithuania Database aka ALD at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Litvak/searchald.htm
Try doing a search for the surname by soundex, and for the town
via soundex. You never know what might turn up....

Help Finding JACOBSONS #general

Julius S Cohen 1
 

14 September 2004

Dear GENers:

L’shana Tova. As a long time reader, I often have thought of
providing the information I have and putting my request for help
on-line to all of you. For years, my search for information on the
Max and Bessie Riva JACOBSON has been unsuccessful. As the oldest
grandchild, I remember hearing about Kovna Gebernia and a Shtetl
near Vilnius. My oldest uncle, Louis Benjamin JACOBSON died about a
month ago shortly before his 95th birthday. Unfortunately, he always
was very reluctant about discussing what he knew about the family
life in Lithuania. Dottie Miller’s mention of a JACOBSON ancestor
finally stimulated this message.

from my grandfather’s Declaration of Intention and Petition for
Naturalization, he came >from Dushat, Russia. His ship arrived in
Hoboken, New Jersey. His wife, Bessie (Basha Riva) (no maiden name)
was born in Breslau, Russia. According to her sisters, their family
name was Deits(?) Deitch(?) Deutsch(?) Max and Bessie’s first two
children, daughters, my mother Rose and Aunt Anna, were reported as
being born in Dushat.

According to the family’s oral tradition, Grandma, Mom and Aunt Ann
arrived at Ellis Island in 1905 or early 1906. Arrival site is in
full agreement with the oral tradition of her sister-in-law’s family
which states that she arrived, accompanied by her three sons, with
Grandma and her two daughters at Ellis Island. The arrival date is
estimated >from Ann’s March, 1905 birth date in Dushat and my Uncle
Julius’ December, 1906 birth date in New York City. Shortly thereafter,
the family moved to Hurleyville, Sullivan County, New York. All of
my deceased family members are buried in the Jewish Cemetery,
Hurleyville New York. A Township Park near Hurleyville is the site
of our annual Max and Bessie JACOBSON Family Reunion.

Despite years of effort, I have been unable to find any Ellis Island
record of the arrival of Grandma, Mom and Aunt Ann. Further, I have
been unable to find any records of the family in Lithuania. This
long message is a request for help in obtaining additional information
about my ancestors. In advance, thank you.

Rozhnyatov YB (Perehinsko, Stryj, Dolina, Bolkhov, Kalush, #general

Thomas F. Weiss
 

Dear JGenners,

We are close to completing translation of the Yizkor Book (YB)
for Rozhnyatov but we need your help to complete the job.

As you can see >from the site at

http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Rozniatow/Rozhnyatov.html

the English portion of the YB is posted and a complete translation of the
entire Hebrew portion is also posted. A portion of the Yiddish part
of the YB has also been translated and posted on the web site. The YB
contains a great deal of genealogical information on the residents of
Rozhnyatov and the neighboring towns. So take a look and see if you
can find one of your relatives.

The translation has been made possible by generous donations
of JGenners, marvelous translations by Isak Shteyn and Jerrold
Landau, the always efficient handling of the material by Joyce Field
and Lance Ackerfeld. It is a pleasure to acknowledge the
contributions of all these people who have made the results available
to all that wish to learn more about Rozhnyatov and the surrounding
communities.

The cost of translation has exhausted our funds. So
we will need to rely on you to contribute to completing the translation of
the remaining pages of the Yiddish portion of the YB. I urge you
to contribute now so that we can complete this important project.

If you wish to contribute to the book's translation over the
web, please click on JewishGen's secure fund raiser page and be sure
to select Rozhnyatov

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.html

I urge you to also contribute an additional amount to JewishGen,
which provides, at no charge, all of the expensive infrastructure for
this project and all the many others that we all enjoy.

For those who feel uncomfortable using credit cards on the web, you
can always simply mail a check (or send a fax with credit card info)
payable to JewishGen, Inc. (with a note earmarking the funds for the
Rozhnyatov Yizkor Book Project) to:

There are films available for on-line viewing representing the various

Of particular interest to me were 2 films of Vilnius (Wilno) and Lithuania,
and 1 film which included footage of Kolbuszowa, Ranizow, Sokolow Malopolski
and Rzeszow.
