Searching Meyer LEVINE #general

ms nodrog
 

I am searching for Meyer LEVINE of New Bedford, Massachusetts.
My husbands grandfather, Joseph RUDNICK worked for him for a
short time, probably >from 1913 to about 1918 in New Bedford.
They later became partners in a small "department" store in
Waterbury, Connecticut in the early 1920's.

Any infomation about this family would be appreciated.

Please e-mail me at msnodrog@yahoo.com. Thanks in advance.

JGS Great Britain launch redesigned website #general

Jgsgbccc@...
 

I am delighted to announce that the redesigned JGS Great Britain
website is now live at www.jgsgb.org.uk (our normal web address).

I hope you will notice a significant improvement in the layout
and ease of use of the website. If you look around the website you
will probably find items that you never knew existed on the old
site. (They were probably there but may have been quite difficult
to find!!).

Also don't forget to try out the search facility using the 'Search
This Site' button - who knows what gems you might find.

There is also some new content including Frequently Asked Questions
(FAQs), and Tips for finding marriage documents relating to Jewish
Weddings in England.

The new January 2003 - April 2003 JGSGB programme is on the site,
plus details of Regional activities/meetings.

All credit to John Berman (our Webmaster) for the site redesign and
reformatting, and to Louise Messik who assisted John and undertook
the content editorship of the new site. I know they both put in
many weeks of effort to update this wonderful resource.

Wishing everyone a Healthy, Happy and Peaceful New Year

Sincerely
Laurence Harris

Dear Genners -

I would appreciate knowing if the writing on this postcard is in
Polish or German - I can't figure out which, as the writing is
pretty scratchy, but I am guessing that it's possibly Polish. It
was probably sent between April and September 1939 >from Poland
(possibly >from Lvov) to my Father, who was a refugee >from Vienna
living temporarily in London.

I don't expect a translation (although any suggestions or offers
would be greatly appreciated!), but I'd like to know what name
the signature might be.

The direct url is:

Thank you, David, for the information. I had found some other info
that says that Rachel NEIMARK was married to Yaakov David MIRELS
d. 1668, the son of Naftali NEUMARK-MIRELS d. 1620, but then I have
one source that says his parents are Miriam Shor and Yaakov Kopel
MIRELS, and another source says that his parents are Aron Fraenkel
MIRELS and Mirl HELLER. Do you know which is correct?

Is it possible that the reference is to R. Dov Berish MEISELS of
Krakow and Warsaw? If so it his through his mother Mallia bas
R. Yitzchol Hakohen AB"D Pintchov ben R. Dov Berish KATZ AB"D

The Meisels reference was definitely for R. David Dov MEISELS, but
I do have one more generation than on your MEISELS listing above
regarding R. Dov Beresh MEISELS. I'm not sure which is correct.
I have that Shabtai had a son R. Moshe HaCohen Katz who married
? MARGOLIES, and their son was R. Isaac HaCohen Katz who married
? Segal, their son was R. Moshe Duvberish HaCohen Katz-RAPPAPORT who
married Feyga, and their son was R. Isaac HaCohen Katz-RAPPAPORT who
married Milya and their daughter Maila married R. Isaac MEISELS and
they were the parents of R. Dov Beresh MEISELS.

I appreciate your help!

Searching and Google #germany

Gunther Steinberg <beagun27@...>
 

Our moderator was completely correct that one should use Google as an
addendum to some name searches. A couple of months ago, when I was looking
for von Recklinghausen information, I not only received an extremely
valuable contact >from a GerSig reader, which led me to further search on
Google. That site produced an excellent Bio of von Recklinghausen, a
non-Jewish MD, (with dates and the name of his wife) who married the daughter
of a German-Jewish MD in K=F6nigsberg.

That initial inquiry has led to two great new contacts.
Thanks Moderator for always adding helpful hints.

INTRO - New to German research #germany

Ralph Salinger <salinger@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for 20 years
and while I worked with Polish records I have not spent much time working on
my German background.
I live in Kibbutz Kfar Ruppin, in Israel. My native language is English.
I consider myself intermediate skills in using a computer. My experience
in using the Internet is extensive.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of earliest known
ancestor: Selig Salomon who lived in the Polish village of Krojanke and was
born around 1732.

Some of the family remained in the Netze Valley that came under Prussian
control in 1772. By the mid 1800's most of the family was living in Berlin
and in 1896 they established a family charity entitled "ACHDUS" This has
turned out to be a mine of information.

My primary research goals is the find out what happened to various families
that are mentioned in this material. Particularly the following families:

Lichtenstein [some branches changed their names to Lightstone ] and LEWKONJA

Also: Alexander,Anheim, Ascher,Ber, Bramsohn, Conheim,David, Erdreich,
Feibusch, Glaser, Gottberg, Gross, Guttfeld, Hanff, Hauschner, Hennig,
Isaacsohn, Isserlin, Jacoby, Jadesohn, Kadisch, Katz, Kirstein, Kuczwor,
Landsberg, Lewin. Lewy, Leopert, Margolinsky, Misch, Pionkowski, Rosenthal,
Sandmann, Scooler, Silberstein, Stern, Scheinmann, Schepses, Weissrock.

Almost all the above families were living in Berlin. Sandmann was from
Wormditt in East Prussia. Thanking you for your time and attention,

Ralph Salinger Kfar Ruppin, Israel salinger@kfar-ruppin.org.il
