Looking for ROTSZTEIN/RATSHTEIN #general

Paul NMN B
 

Hi,

If your family contains any variation of ROTSZTEIN/RATSHTEIN/ROZENSZTEIN,
please contact me at PaulnmnB@aol.com.

I have the 1857, Polish marriage record of my grandmother's parents and the
record contains all the above variations.

The spelling of the name was corrected in the margins of the marriage
record, however, we cannot tell when it was corrected.

Help solve a family mystery!

Thanks

Correct reply to address from a previous post regarding odd names #general

My post (copied below) had (for some odd reason which I cannot fathom) an
incorrect "reply to:" address at the bottom of the message.

Please send your reply to yeruchem@bestweb.net and if you have already
replied, please resend. Thank you.

There are some names that turn up in a family tree that seems to
connect with my family named MORGENROTH and some of them are odd-sounding
to me and I was wondering in anyone is familiar with them or may know the
source of these names:

Feis
Feist
Falk
Madel
Ranle
Roile

Thank you.

A thank you to Alan Rosen.. who, answered our request. He graciously went
out of his way, while on vacation.. went to very old cemetery, walked the
cemetery and found the tombstone we had never seen, and took pictures of
our grandmother's grave and her young child's grave in Richmond .
Virginia.. He went to the address where she lived and died in 1926 and
photographed that too.
We thank him for his kindness.

Re: Cemetery burials #usa

Gladys Friedman Paulin <gp21603@...>
 

To all,
Here in the United States, the synagogue which 'owns' a cemetery or a
section may sell plots to both members and non-members, although today the
member price may be considerably less than to others:-).

Here in Florida, many retirees are non-affiliated and the funeral
directors are frequenlty the ones who negotiate for the price of a plot
for someone who had little foresight as to his/her needs. Just as the
landsmanshaftn sections may contain burials of persons who were not from
their town, synagogue sections have burials of non-members.

For the genealogist, the burial location is a clue, but other research
must be done to establish a connection-- if one exists.

Benveniste/Epstein connection (Request) #belarus

Jack R. Braverman <jbraverman1@...>
 

Some time before 12/15 when the second of two msg on this topic appeared,
there was, of course, a first. If someone still has the original one, would
you kindly send it along to me? I accidentally deleted it.
Note: this is _not_ the mag. signed by ZARA&MIGUEL.
The earlier one speculated about a legend that an original surname had been
changed to two entirely different ones. There was a fascinating bit of
family legend in the note.

* * * * * =


In the meantime, I'm always interested in EPSTEIN >from Grodno, before 1860
- 1900 and beyond.

John Jones <quexi@...>
 

Hi,

I've posted five more family photos with Yiddish inscriptions on
ViewMate. These were >from my grandfather's album, and I'm
hoping that someone can fully translate the inscriptions to
English. The fifth one might have Hebrew or Yiddish -- I'm not
sure which.

The photos include members of the TURETSKY family >from Pinsk and
Montevideo and the PORTNOY family >from Pinsk and Israel.

To see them, please go to

I have more photos of these families if anyone is interested.

Please respond directly to me, not to the list.

Many thanks!

Mogilev Gub. Town Name #belarus

NormK12065
 

A friend of mine has a copy of his ancestor's passenger manifest which
indicates in two places the family town name was CHOLE in the Mogivlev gubernia. I
have searched WOWW, Shtetl Seeker, maps, etc. and the closest name I can find
is CHOLUI. Does anyone have an idea what the actual town name might be.

Thank you very much.

Who could marry whom? #germany

Levy, Justin <Justin.Levy@...>
 

Hello GerSIGers,
I am fairly new to genealogy, so please excuse my ignorance, when I ask
about marriage customs.

Could first cousins marry each other? And what about a man marrying his
niece? Rgds,

Justin Levy (Dublin, Ireland)

MODERATOR NOTE: You forgot to specify time and place. In the area that
is now western Germany both first cousins and an uncle and niece married
in branches of my own family. I've been told that was not forbidden.

The head of the famous Straus family >from Otterberg, Lazarus STRAUS
and his wife Sara were first cousins.

A widower older uncle sometimes married a much younger niece. I was told
that this provided financial security for the girl and companionship for
the man and, if he was wealthy, kept his money in the family. MOD
