Hi Genners

Although I have been researching for many years, I have never had cause to
research Jewish Genealogy until now.
My neighbour has asked me to see what I can discover of her roots.
The only facts I have are her birth certificate which says she was born
Elizabeth BECKER, 1940 in Islington, London, England. No father named on the
certificate. Mother's name Alice Charlotte BECKER.
Alice BECKER died in Hampstead, London, England of a stroke in 1950. Aged
42, no place of birth given.
The then 9 year old Elizabeth was taken to a Jewish children's home,
possibly in Norwood, London.
She was adopted by a Jewish couple in December 1950, who split up when she
was a teenager and she started a life on her own, losing all contact with
her religion.
Other 'facts' >from her memory. Her mother was a trained chiropodist but
never worked as one in England and she spoke very good English with a
foreign accent. Her mother once mentioned a twin sister (of her mother) in
Berlin. She thinks that her mother came to England about 1938 and she has a
faint memory of her mother having a tattoo on her arm but doesn't know if
this is a real memory or something she saw somewhere else and 'implanted' on
her mother.
She does not remember ever meeting anyone that could have been a relative
while living with her mother in London.
That is all I have.
Can someone point me in the right direction to get started? Is there a
Jewish children's home in Norwood? Would they keep records for over 50
years? Is there any way of finding when Alice arrived in England, and from
where?

"It has been kindly pointed out to me that in Germany, Sally was a Jewish

Hessen, but at Dreisen, Rheinland Pfalz."

Actually, there has been some confusion as to names which "sound" like the
name Sally, at least in German pronunciation (the "S" has a "Z"
sound). The German secular given name spelled Sally was used for both
women and men in Ashkenaz. This can be see by visiting the Germany Given
Names Data Base at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/GivenNames >,
and using the search input "Sally OR Sali" with Plain Text search.

To my knowledge, the name spelled Sally was "never" used by Jews in Germany
as a nickname for the German secular name Salomon, but only for the two
male/female names mentioned above. It is possible, of course, that there
may have been some exceptional cases. However, the name "Sali" was indeed
used as a nickname for Salomon. Shabbat shalom,

I am looking for anyone who has any information concerning Helene Loew -
BODENHEIMER, who around 1840 married Loepold LOEW, who was a butcher and
lived in Ruchheim, today part of Ludwigshafen. Their son Markus (Max) LOEW
(also a butcher) married at the age of 24 in 1875 Fanny FUERST in Karlsruhe,
daughter of the merchant Jakob and his wife Zitona FUERST, both of Karlsruhe.
A relative who attended the civil wedding ceremony was Marx (or Max) FABER.

I would be very grateful if anyone who has any knowledge about these people
will contact me.

Genners:
To avoid getting 19,600 hits you can narrow it down by first putting in:
"genealogy castle garden"
Using the word "genealogy" eliminates all the unneeded hits. It works quite well
with surnames, countries, etc. I used
Genealogy Goldberg and only Goldberg related to genealogy showed up. Also when
I put in genealogy russia only Russian genealogy appeared including a reference to
JewishGen.

My search just now returned 19,600 hits! Not all of these are appropriate,
and some are duplicates. Still, there are plenty of links that are very much
to the point of your questions.<<<<

Your questions, and many more, can be answered very simply by doing a Google

are understood as a sequence).

PHINEAS Family - London, England #general

Anne McLaughlin <anne.mc@...>
 

London's Portuguese-Jewish Community -

I am looking for my 3rd great grand-mother's father. Sadly we know nothing
of his origins.

His name was Isaac Heineman PHINEAS (b/circa 1775/80 - death 1855/
Three-Rivers, Quebec, CA). He arrived alone in Quebec at the age of 18 or
20, in about 1798. He quickly became a merchant in Three-Rivers. He soon
married Hannah Cook and they had 6 children. No other Phineas family member
is known to have immigrated at this time.

Family lore has it that Isaac was born in the Portuguese-Jewish section of
London, England. Isaac was well educated and he could read and write English
fluently. Locating Passenger Records is quite difficult before 1865, in
Canada.

Was there a Portuguese-Jewish Community in London in the late 1700's? Where
would I look to find the residents of such a community? Any and all advice
is welcome.

Thanking you,

Anne, Montreal

Re: EIDB -- LUPOLANSKI -- Help Needed #general

Arthur Hoffman <arthh@...>
 

I agree with Alexander Sharon that the birthplace on the manifest is
Holvanisk (Golovanevsk). It is confirmed on p.960, column 11, which
indicates that the nearest relative was >from Holvanisk, *Podolia*. Podolia
was the Guberniya (province) for Golovanevsk at that time.

My grandfather was also born in Golovanevsk, a shtetl of about 5000 with
about 60-70% Jewish at the turn of the 20th century when the 1897 All
Russian census was taken.

Coincidentally, Jacob, perhaps you may be related to Steve Rosen who heads
up an informal group of individuals around the world researching their
ancestors >from Golovanevsk, since you have the same last name.

Jacob,

Your request regarding private response is appreciated but I believe that any
discussions concerning general interest as e.g. names of the localities should
be made available to all Genners and kept consequently kept in the discussion
group archives for the further references.

As to your request it appears that Dobe Lupolanski was resident of"Olgonov"
which most probably corresponds to Olganow near Busko in the Kielce region of
Poland.
Olganow was obscure place with only 3 Jewish residents

There are other candidates for"Olgonov" that are located in Ukraine and Belarus
(Olgopol or Olgomel) but you did not volunteer to provide details as to the
region where >from Dobe has originated.

Analyzing Dobe's birthplace reveals that she was born in "Holowansk" which is
modern Holovanivsk (ex Russian Golovanevsk) situated south of town Uman in
southern Ukraine.

Majta KLEPFISZ, born 1911, married Jakob Icek KOTT.
Majta's parents were: Nuchim KLEPFISZ and Itla, nee
BERKE.
All were >from the city of Kalisz, in Poland.

According to ShtetlSeeker, Kalisz is one of the
following:

Kalisz 5016 2008 N Poland 142.0 miles SSW of Warsaw

Does anyone have any ideas on how we can narrow our
search to determine which Kalisz we should look in for
more information?

Deportees from France #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

This is a one time permitted announcement of an important research book.
It is known that during WW II about 76,000 Jews, including 11,000
children, were deported >from France. But what is not so well-known
is that there were an additional 85,000 others, deported as
Resistance, hostages, etc., in which were also included many Jews,
which the Nazis did not realize.
While Serge Klarsfeld has documented the 76,000 known Jews in his
book, there was, until recently, no research and documentation for
the other 85,000 individuals

After some seven years the Fondation pour la Memoire de la
Deportation http://www.fmd.asso.fr/ has just published a
long-anticipated set of memorial volumes , in French, which lists
these 85,000, missing for over 60 years. The title is, "Le
livre-memorial des deportes de France arretes par mesure de
repression et dans certains cas par mesure de persecution -
1945-1945." [The memorial book of deportes >from France, arrested as
repressive measures and in certain cases as a method of
persecution...]

This work consists of 4 volumes , each about 1500 pages. On each
page there is a table that lists for each deporte, the number in the
camp (when known), family name, first name, sex, date of birth,
place of birth, nationality, entire route( camps in which interned)
stauts (deceased, survivor, unknown) date of release or date of
death, place of release or death, comments.

While these books contain mainly the names of non-Jewish resistants
or hostages, there are still many who were Jewish, but who were
arrested as Resistants. Many listings have never been published
before, and may provide a clue to those who are still seeking some
information for missing family.

Processing at Castle Garden #general

Does anyone know about or have a reference to the actual
processing procedure at Castle Garden.

Where did the boats land? How were immigrants conveyed to
Castle Garden? Was there any type of security? Are there
interior photos photographs of Castle Garden during the period
it was the immigration center? Were there medical exams?

There are dozens of books with such information about Ellis
Island, but I don't recall seeing similar references for
Castle Garden.

Thanks.
