re ORMAN/ERMAN and Sandomierz #general

Marilyn Glass <mgft@...>
 

Hi:

Recently I discovered the names of my husband's great great grandparents
Chaja (surname unknown) and Majer ORMAN/ERMAN. I would be very interested
in hearing >from anybody that is related to the ORMAN/ERMAN Family.

Their daughter Tauba ORMAN/ERMAN (d. 1895 in Sandomierz) was married to
Josek ZILBERSTEYN. They had twin daughters in 1873 - Alta Sheiva (my
husband's grandmother) and Nuhuma born in Sandomierz, Poland.

If any of the above information sounds familiar, please contact me at
mgft@rogers.com

Thank you.

Best wishes,

Thank you all BERMAN BEHRMANN found #general

REDCO@...
 

Subject: Thank you all - Berman Behrmann found
From: "Anita Redlich" redco@aol.com

After over 10 years of "trying" to locate my mother and her family coming to
this country, I finally succeeded thanks to you all and finally a trip to New
York. The search formally began with gusto when the Ellis Island site went
on the internet. All I found at that time was when my grandfather, Isaac
Berman, came to this country in 1904. I had written for and received all the
family's death certificates (except one Uncle that died in Florida--which is
hopefully pending). I knew >from my mother's death certificate (died 1935) and my
grandfather's arrival in the States that he came >from Libau, Latvia. I was
never able to find a naturalization for my Grandfather. One of my mother's
brothers, Samuel Berman, had actually been born in the US. When I received his
death certificate it gave the date of birth (1908) and most of my research for
my mother and grandmother's entry to this country centered around the years
before his birth date. When I wrote to try to New York to get his birth record
it was to no avail. When I finally made the decision to take a trip into New
York, one of the wonderful Jewishgenners told me he would meet me and show me
around the Chamber Street record office. It became as simple as wonderful as
eating New York cheesecake. >from the Date of Birth, rather than >from the name
Samuel Berman, up popped a birth certificate for a "Baby Behrman." It
showed that the baby had been born in a doctor's office on August 1, 1908. MY
grandmother's name was listed as Sara ("C" Koef?) and her residence at 245-249
East 110th Street. My grandfather's name was also on the birth certificate as
Isaac Behrman. >from that information I went back to the Ellis Island site
and was able to find my Grandmother and my mother and three of her brothers
and a Dovid (who I think might be a cousin?) all coming in >from "Wirginain,
Curland, on the ship Korea, in 1907. Of course as much as this finding answered
my question as to when my mother actually came to this country -- it also has
posed other questions and has not answered or given clues to all the other
questions I have about this complicated family, most of whom died in the 1940's
and those that lived slightly longer, did not want to speak about their family.
Thank you all for your very wonderful suggestions, help and inspiration as I
continue the search. Two of the brothers and David were in the Military, I
have addresses where they were stationed, but so far have been unable to locate
information that would help lead me to their naturalization papers. ... and
after that it would be great to get to the Latvian records. Best regards to
you all and thank you.

These women obviously married and
their surnames were therefore probably changed.

JRI-Poland Research Guide now available in four languages #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Jewish Records Indexing-Poland is pleased to announce the 2004 edition
of the JRI-Poland Research Guide is now available online -- in four languages.
The guides are in PDF format and may be downloaded >from the home page at
www.jri-poland.org

The English version of the Research Guide has been updated and distributed
each year to attendees at the International Jewish Genealogical Conferences,
as well as made available on our website. We hope the French, Hebrew and
Spanish editions will make it possible for many more family historians with
an interest in Polish Jewish research to become familiar with the activities
of JRI-Poland as well as to learn some of the basic research techniques
outlined in the guide.

On behalf of JRI-Poland I would like to express our sincerest appreciation
to the world-wide group of contributors to the four versions of the
Research Guide. They are:

* Morris Spector, Connecticut, the graphic designer for the Research Guide
since the first of the annual editions was published in 1998.

* Serge Reich and Nicole Berline of France for the French translation.

* Yocheved Klausner of Israel for the Hebrew translation.

* Carlos Glikson of Argentina for the Spanish translation.

* Susan Garfield Shulman of D-Zign, Montreal, for her valued assistance
in the layout of the French and Spanish editions.

And, of course, thanks to our webmaster, Earl Wertheimer for bringing
the guides to life on our website in such a colorful fashion.

We urge all friends of JRI-Poland to bring the Research Guide to the
attention of fellow researchers, family members and friends -- those
active in genealogy as well as others who may not be aware of the
treasures that are available in the Jewish records of Poland.
