VM3235 - Kansas City Addresses #general

Arnold Davidson <arnoldbd@...>
 

Two possible family members have Kansas City addresses
listed as their destinations in the ship manifests.
They arrived in the US in 1908 and 1913.
It is not clear in the manifests whether they
were going to Kansas City MO or Kansas City KS.
One address looks like 205 W. 5th Ave and the
other looks like 511 C Ave.

Present day maps of KC MO show no avenues with
single numbers or single letters. Maps of KC KS
show numbered avenues, however, when I tried locate
the addresses, using various letters and numbers
on Mapquest, there were no matches; the search
brought up numbered streets instead of the
numbered avenues.

Does anyone recognize these addresses? Did either
Kansas City have addresses of this type in 1908-1913?
Any ideas? Please answer privately.

J-ENGLENDER, J-EPSZTAJN, J-ERSZTAJN, J-EJCHEL, J-EJZENBERG, J-EDLINSKA, etc. #poland

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

A few years ago, I found what I thought was a random error of transcription, because I found one of my ENGLENDER birth records recorded as JENGLENDER in JRI-Poland's database.

But now I am realizing just the opposite: It appears that for some reason
"E" surnames (like ENGLENDER and EPSZTAJN) were sometimes written in
Cyrillic with a "J" at the beginning, like this:

JENGLENDER
JEPSZTAJN
JERSZTAJN
JEJCHEL
JEJZENBERG
JEDLINSKA

You may wish to search for your E surnames with an added initial J.

Note, however, that I am not a Cyrillic expert. I hope that others will be
able to add an authoritative opinion on the subject above, if needed.

HEUMANN (Lippstadt) second cousins found in Israel! #germany

Sylvia Stawski <sylvia@...>
 

Dear all,

One or two years ago I asked for your help in finding my father's cousin
Albert HEUMANN >from Lippstad, Germany, who had moved to Tel Aviv in the
'30s. I knew he had been married and had two daughters but did not know
their surnames after marriage. Several GerSig members checked for me the
phone book of Tel Aviv but without success.

In the meantime I got hold of an old envelope with an address >from the
'60s. When I was in Israel last month I visited that address in the
center of Tel Aviv. Old neighbours told me (in German) that my father's
cousin had died and that his apartment eventually had been sold by the
son of his 3rd marriage. They had no address of the two girls I was
looking for. However, they introduced me to the new owner of the
apartment and made him look for the contract of the house sale. He then
was so kind to call me back after an hour with the phonenumber of the
seller. I called him and explained the situation. He indeed happened to
have the phone number of his stepsisters Talia and Niva, my second
cousins for whom I was looking.

And so - within two hours and a few phone calls! - I found a whole bunch
of unknown relatives. We had two very enjoyable meetings during my stay
in Israel. It turns out that Tali is also working on the family tree as
a present to her granddaughter who will be Bat Mitswa next year and so
we could combine information and family stories. Via e-mail we will
further perfect the family tree.

I just wanted to share this success story with you and also point out
that in this case the crucial information was found in the contract for
the sale of the apartment.

Broadway Synagogue #usa

Phyllis Dahl <phy@...>
 

This is my first posting on this site - glad I found my way here.

According to my g-grandparents - Moss Samuel Phillips and Abagail Cowan
- marriage certificate, they were married on 6 March 1867 at the
Broadway Synagogue in New York City. Both are buried at Salem Fields.
Witnesses were A.L. Levy and J. A. Jackson. Their residence was at 145
W. 46th Street.
Question
I have heard that the Broadway Synagogue was at Heralds Square. Can
anyone tell me what the name of the Synagogue was as well as any other
information?

Many thanks.

Is anyone familiar with the book, "Synagogues without
Jews"? It was written by Rivka Dorfman. Does this book
deal with the SLovakian Jewry during the Holocaust or
an earlier period?
