Jacobsons in Latvia or Lithuania #lithuania

Avi Lichtenstein
 

I am currently researching the family of my 2nd ggf Jacob (Jankel) Jacobson
(ca. 1860-1924). His father's name was Nissan. Oral family history
says that he came >from Dvinsk/Dinenburg. He married my great-great-
grandmother Jennie (Freyde) Levin around 1881. She was >from Zarasai.
On their passeger list to the United States, they and their children
listed their last origin as Kovno. They left >from Swinemunde and
arrived in New York, but lived in Philadelphia. There is no trace of them
in departure records. Likewise, because they came in 1891, there is no
specific town information in official American records.

I can find nothing in the online European records for Jacob Jacobson.
I have seen some records that may indicate a Jacobson connection to
Bauska or Aizpute. Does anyone have any knowledge of or relationship
to Jacobson families who migrated >from Latvia to Lithuania between the
1860s and 1880s?

Kindly,

Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland: Letter M #general

Lande
 

On the occasion of my 86th birthday, I have completed indexing 1,267 names
from the Reichsvereinigung collection where the family name begins with the
letter M. This joins previous indexing for the letters A-L, all of which
are available on Steve Morse's website under Jewish Roof Organizations, and
which will also be available on on Jewishgen. While the registrants resided
in Germany 1939-1942, they were born as early as the 1840s and originated
widely, >from Alabama and New York to Odessa.

The cards themselves may be seen as part of the International Tracing
Service's Digital Collection. However, there they can only be searched by
family name of the registrant. I have added information >from other sources
and this database can be searched by fields such as maiden name, place of
birth or destination of emigrants, e.g. Bolivia or the United States. I
have also added information not present on the cards themselves, such as
cause of death, e.g suicide, mixed marriages, etc.

If the indexing or individual names raise questions, please feel free to
contact me for clarification.

Jewish cemeteries in Hendon, Middlesex, England #general

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

As a follow up to my previous message on Pinchas Hersh (Philip) KANO,
in England,

I located info on his death index:

Hendon, Middlesex, England
Registration Year: 1963
Estimated age: 83
Volume: 5E
Page: 750
Line number: 54

Is any British genner able to provide me a list of Jewish cemeteries
in Middlesex, England?
The one I could find is Adath Yisroel Synagogue & Burial Society.

I should try to contact all the cemeteries in an attempt to locate
Pinchas's grave.
If that succeeds, I will then have Pinchas's parents and that will
suffice to determine if the jewishgen user who contacted me is a
family match or not.

Thanks in advance,
Avraham Yehoshua Kahana

Help from British genners : Searching for Pinchas Hersh (Philip) KANO, who immigrated to England, from Poland #general

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

Hi all,

Another Jewishgen user contacted me years ago and we are now in the
final stages of confirming we are indeed related via our KANO (Kahana)
families, >from Poland.

In my final attempts of obtaining the last official evidences, I am
searching after any official data about

Pinchas Hersh (civil name in England, Philip) KANO, who was in London
on January 21, 1949.
(Taken >from http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C12361045 )

Pinchas was married to Rivka Rachel Szczuciner. They seem to have
settled in England.
I did not have success yet in finding other official evidences on the
couple, other than the document above.

I have been trying to locate a Jewish genealogical society in London
or the British Jewish Genealogical society, but everything I found so
far requires either membership for any meaningful data or does not
offer a discussion list where I can post my inquiry.

Does any of the British genners out there have more guidance on what
is my best lead?

Thanks in advance,
Avraham Yehoshua Kahana

Re: Hey-Resh-Resh on Gravestones #germany

Hello Ralph and Listreaders,

I have excepts >from a Memor-Buch >from Celle (similar to JewishGen Kehila
Links) written by the late Naftali Bar-Giora Bamberger in which the
explanes "rules" of reading and understanding Hebrew epitaphs in
Germany.

On page 13 he says: "R" or RR" = Reb - eine im taeglichen Umgang
uebliche Anrede feur einen ehrbaren, gelehrten und frommen Juden.
Wird oft irrtuemlich mit Rabbiner oder Rabbi verwechselt.
Rabbiner fuehren sogenannte "Morenu-Titel".

Reb is the form of address to a honorable, learned and devotional Jew.
Often it is misunderstood as Rabbi, yet those bear the Morenu-Titel.

Perhaps this helps you to judge the writings on the gravestones.
