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

To Phyllis DAHL: For what it's worth my great-great-grandparents Leopold
LOEB and Sarah KATZENSTEIN were among the founders of Temple Israel
which is currently located on 75th Street between Lexington and Park
Avenues in Manhattan. They too were buried at Salem Fields; perhaps the
cemetery was not only reserved for members of Temple Emanu-El? Having said
that my great-grandparents Jacob and Adele KATZENSTEIN were members of
Temple Beth-El which merged with Temple Emanu-El in 1927; they were buried
at Mount Hope Cemetery in Brooklyn.... Regards

Seeking ROTHSCHILDs murdered by SS #germany

Daniel L. Rothschild <daniel@...>
 

There is a website with all the Gedenkbuch where I could search for a
family member lost in the Holocaust?

The brother of my grandfather died in the Holocaust, he lived in Hoerstein,
Bayern (30 km of Frankfurt).

His name was Sigfried ROTHSCHILD, and he died with his wife and child.

[MODERATOR NOTE: Date or year of birth make searches for holocaust victims
far more likely to succeed]

Thank you and shana tova to all of you

website contains answers to many questions. Look there for the page

I am replying to Phillip Applebaum's message via the list, in case there may
be some information here that others don't already know:

Dear Phillip,

Firstly (and not related to the UK!!), have you checked the JRI
Poland/Ukraine records on Jewish Gen for the various Polish/Jewish names you
have? http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/jriplweb.htm

If Charles changed his name in the UK, check the London Gazzette for the
announcement (on-line & free).
http://www.gazettes-online.co.uk/index.asp?webType=0

Did Charles apply for naturalization in England? Check with the Public
Records Office National Archives at Kew – they hold Naturalization
applications and certificates. See their site at:
http://www.familyrecords.gov.uk/topics.htm

Since you know the date of death, you could check the Jewish Chronicle (THE
Jewish newspaper for the UK, especially London >from 1852 until the present
day) his death accouncement – usually contains additional information about
the family – plus a possible ‘thanks for condolences’ announcement a week
later, plus Stone Setting announcement a year later. These were 'paid'
announcements, so not everyone placed them (but most did by the 1930's).

You could also check for marriage announcements of his children in the JC.

I don’t believe that the JC exists on-line. Some Family History Centres
(located in the UK Borough Libraries) hold the full newspaper on
microfische. If you contact one of the librarians, they may be willing to
do a look-up for you – I really don’t know. Or perhaps a London-based
genner could help .........?

Wills & probate: The Family Records Centre in Islington holds abstracts of
Wills (on microfische) & the full Will can be ordered >from another
Government Archive (not sure which - somewhere in Holborn). The FRC also
holds indexes to the BMD records, and accepts on-line orders for the full
certificates. See the FRC website:
http://www.familyrecords.gov.uk/topics.htm

I hope this will give you something to work with.

Best of luck!
