Re: MILWERTZ / BODEWIN #courland #latvia

JOHN G. CAKARS <latvija@...>
 

The case is being made that the following people have "Latvian" given
names. However, an examination reveals this may not be the case.
According to the book "Latviesu personvardu vardnica" (Dictionary of
Latvian given names), by K. Silins, Riga <<Zinate>> 1990 states this:
Wilhelm=Vilhelms; Elisabeth=Elizabete; Jean (The author considers this
to be a French name.)=Z'anis; Virginea more commonly is spelled
Virginija; Marie=Marija; Gireth, I have no idea what this name is or
means. It is not listed in this book.

Zanis has a diacritical mark over the "Z." It is a little "v." It used
to be spelled Zhanis. According to this dictionary, Zhanis is a form of
John.

I seriously doubt that this is an ethnic Latvian family.

I have already checked the original passengerlists which has RUSSIA as the country of origin of this family.

This means that they as socalled German-Russians must have come >from LATVIA, LITHUNIA or/and COURLAND because of the progroms of 1882.

In fact the first names do sound to me like they are Latvian (Lettland) of Kurland. This was an area of extensive German immigration by the Deutsche Ritterorden, and it would be quite easy to mix Russian, Bohemian, French, and Germans because the D.R. brought colonists >from all those places into their landholdings in Latvia and Kurland.

My apologies to the group. I tried sending the following message to

Dear Marc,
Thank you very much for your reply to my request. I'll certainly follow
up Monee/Minee at least. I've got two more questions: 1. does Rachel
say in what year the Calof brothers first moved to N. Dakota? and 2. Is
the book still in print and who is the publisher? If not, can you tell

ROSINSKY/BAYLETT/SHUBE/BERNSTEIN families of London #unitedkingdom

Nachum Tuchman <nachum@...>
 

This is my first posting to this new group, so I'd like to mention the
families that I'm researching.

Alexander ROSINSKY was born, apparantly, about 1881 in Estonia. He
arrived in London about
1896, probably with at least his father, Eliezer, and a brother Yehuda
Leyb. I have no other information
on Eliezer and Yehuda Leyb. Alexander had 5 children, Lewis, Alf,
Joseph, Barney, Hettie, and
Dr. David, who was MIA in WW 2 in Burma. Alexander died in 1915 and is
buried in Plashet.

His wife, Sarah, nee BAYLETT was born, possibly, in Vilna. Her father
was Leyb. He was not alive
when Alexander and Sarah married in London in Jan 1902, as per the
marriage certificate. Sarah died=20
sometime in the 1950's. I do not know where she is buried, and the
research I've done so far has turned up
nothing.

The SHUBEs, Solomon (Yeshayahu) and Elizabeth, nee BERNSTEIN, immigrated
to London from=20
Lithuania, around 1897. Their oldest daughter, Frieda, was born in 1896
in the old country. There were
4 other children, Bob, not sure where he was born, Anne, b-1898, Leah,
b-1901, and Dick. The last
3 were born in London. Solomon died before 1935, and Elizabeth died
after 1935. I don't have exact
dates nor do I know where they are buried. I have checked with the
United Synagogue, and have written
to a number of other Burial Societies. The US, which is computerized
has no record of them. The
other Burial Societies need a date of death in order to search.

The SHUBEs were the first Jewish family allowed to buy a farm in
England. They owned the Filmore Farm
in Essex, where Lewis ROSINSKY met and married Leah SHUBE . Their son,
my father in law, the late Cyril ROSE
(the name ROSINSKY was shortened to ROSE in 1941), was born while the
family still had the farm.

Most of the SHUBE descendants are known. There has not been contact
with the ROSINSKY relatives
for many years, and I know nothing of them.

If anyone has information on these families, please respond.

Research Success Using www.google.com #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

This past week I located surviving family members living in Russia. The
family originally came >from Mogilev gubernia, but more on that later.

As part of my research routine, about every six months, I do a search of my
less common family surnames using http://www.google.com. (Remember that
there is no D/M option and you will have to do multiple searches on surname
spelling variants). After getting the search results with the webpages that
contain my surname, I carefully review the page and try to find an email
address for the person(s) with the surname. When there is no email address,
I send a message to the webmaster of the page and ask if they can put me in
contact with the person. I then send a message explaining that I am an
amateur genealogist doing research on the XXXXX family and explain that I am
looking for additional family members and provide the area >from where my
family originated, along with some minimal details. I ask them if their
family came >from the same area and to provide as much information as
possible that might help establish a family relationship. Then I wait for a
reply! In most cases I do get one, sometimes many months after my message
was sent. The delays are sometimes because they must find someone to
translate the message I sent and compose a return message in English,
although I have received messages back in Russian.

About two weeks ago, I did a www.google.com search on SHENDEROV and
SENDEROV. In previous research, I have found different records for the same
family transliterated with both variants, as well as several others. After
doing my search, I found a webpage in Russian which contained the name G.
SENDEROV in Latin characters along with an email address. As explained
above, I sent an email message to this person. About two weeks later I
received a reply. He was a bit confused because my name was not SENDEROV,
but he provided quite a bit of information:

My family background are >from Glusck (Mogilev region). My grandfather's
grandfather's name was Solomon Senderov; his son's name was Ilia; his son's
(my grandfather's) name was Alcon Senderov (was born in 1897). In 1916 year
he was leaving Belarus and arrived to Petrovsk Zabaykalskiy (Chita region),
in 1927 year he arrived in Irkutsk. His son's (my father's) name is Michail
(was born in 1931). My brother's name is Alexandr (was born in 1957) and my
name is Sergey Senderov (was born in 1964).
Brother of my grandfather (Abram Senderov) in 1914 left Belarus to
USA. He had 2 sons. I don't know where they lived exactly (may be in
California), name of one >from them is Ilia.
Others brothers and sisters of my grandfother were died in Russia.
What did this short message show?

1. My great grandmother Goldie SHENDEROV/SENDEROV had 10 siblings that I
know about. Most of the names were obtained >from Revision Lists in the
National Historical Archives of Belarus (Minsk) by a paid researcher. Only
my ggm and one other sibling immigrated to the US. One of her brothers was
Zalman. It appears likely, that Sergey SENDEROV, the person who responded to
my email is descended >from my ggm's brother. Therefore, he would be my 3rd
cousin, once removed.

2. Many Jews left the Pale of Settlement around the time of the Russian
Revolution, as Sergei's grandfather did in 1916. Don't limit your family
research to just Belarus.

3. It appears that other relatives came to the US and that none of my
immediate family had knowledge of them. Now I have to look for SENDEROV's in
California.

4. New opportunities are available to expand your family tree and locate
living relatives that you never thought could have survived the Holocaust.

I have sent Sergey a copy of the family tree and am waiting now for his
reply.

I challenge all of you to try this research technique and report back to the
SIG your success stories.
