INTRO - Seeking LEWIN from Halle u/Saale #germany

Ann Lewin <lewinr@...>
 

I did post a message before and got very positive results. Unfortunately
fairly new to this type of research and to this computer.(an Apple)

I am researching the LEWIN family >from Halle u/Saale. Have information on
the family back to the birth of Jakob LEWIN in 1823 and my last message
resulted in information on a brother of Jakob named Julius and his
decendants. I do not know therir parents names or if there were other
brothers and sisters.

Do know that Jakob had a son named Paul and at least 3 male children whose
names I do not know. I have traced Pauls descendants to today and received
via e mail ther family tree (until 1924) of Julius Lewin. Would like to
find out names of other brothers and sisters of both JaKob (Yakob) and Paul
and trace the family trees. I feel certain that there must be some living
relatives somewhere in the world that we do not know about.

Would ppreciate any help anyone can give. Thank you,

Ann Lewin Rancho Mirage, CA Lewinr@earthlink.net

CHIMIRINSKY new surname for Motel SIG subscribers #belarus

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

I recently sent the e-mail below concerning a new surname found
on my family tree to the Motel SIG discussion group only to find
that it was now incorporated within the Belarus SIG group. So I
am posting it again to reach all the former Motel SIG subscribers
and hope the Belarus SIG moderators won't mind my second
posting. Thank you.

To all,
After a considerable amount of research that took me >from Miami Beach
to Chicago and back to New York City, I have uncovered another
generation
of names for my GLAZER (or Gallosshoff) / GREENFIELD connection from
the Grodno Gubernia area of Russia, possibly >from Kartuz Bereza and
Chomsk
and a brand new surname CHIMIRINSKY.

I am now looking for the following parents of these two brothers:
Nathan (Hyman or Chaim) Greenfield b. 1880? Chomsk, Russia
m. Minnie Glazer? ; resided in NYC then a furrier in Chicago
died 1961 Miami Beach
William Greenfield b. 1884 Russia m. Ida Voll or Wahl ; resided in
NYC & Bronx, NY, then Chicago, painter d. 1974 Chicago

I have found on l908 Marriage Certificate for William Greenfield -
parents MAX GREENFIELD and FANNY CHIMIRINSKY. Having
just learned that many Chimirinsky or Chemerinsky surnames are
from Motel, I have just subscribed to this list to learn more and to
contact anyone with that surname >from the Motel area. The area
of Bereza and Chomsk is not far >from Motel.

I am also looking for the parents of Ida Voll or Wahl Greenfield
who are Morris Voll or Wahl and Gussie Silverman.

Anyone with information of family and/or archiveal records these
people in NYC, Chicago, Russia or Belarus, please e-mail me.

Thanks for your help and reading this long e-mail.

Where is Temun, Russia? #belarus

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear all,
I recently read that Irving Berlin was born in Temun, Russia, which was
also the city where his parents married. Since he was the youngest of six,
I might guess all the family was born there.

Mr. Berlin wrote on his WWI draft registration card that he was born in
Mogilev, so I'd figure Temun is near there (another example of a small
shtetl being identified by its nearest large city).

I didn't find Temun in JGen's Shtetl-Seeker, in the Belarus-SIG website
shtetl listing, or on the MultiMap website. Do any of you know where it is?

Thanks!

Jaunjelgava #latvia

Levy <levy@...>
 

I am hoping to find information about my grandmother's family who
lived in Friedrichsstadt (now Jaunjelgava) in the Courland area until
about 100 years ago.

Her family name was GUTMANN (GOODMAN), and other family names include
WIENER and WESTERMANN. While my immediate forbears went to England,
some members of those families stayed behind, and presumably vanished
in the holocaust.

We are visiting Latvia next May and would very much like to contact
the Jewish archives in Riga if there is such a thing. Can anyone
help me with this? A contact who speaks English would be wonderful.

Hopefully that person could connect me with an English speaker in
Jaunjelgava so that I could visit the old cemetery if it is still accessible.

Denmark ===> Scandinavia ! #scandinavia

JNB <jnblank@...>
 

Mazal tov (lycka till !) on the launching of the new ScandinaviaSIG. I
think it is a great development ( and if my previous suggestions in
this direction contributed somehow to this development, I'm very glad).
I'll do my best to spread the word around among my Finnish Jewish
friends to get them to take an active part in the mailing list.


One small problem I noticed: the link to the Helsinki Cemetery data (by
Eric Adler) does not seem to work. The data seems still to be available
at http://www.adlertree.net/helsinki.htm , so apparently it's just
a question of a "missing link". The Turku cemetery data link is OK.

BTW, I'm in contact with Rabbi Edelman >from Helsinki, and I'm trying to
convince him (and the community) to carry out a similar project on the
old (19th century) Jewish cemetery in Helsinki. This would involve an
urgent rescue and restoration operation, as well as recording, since the
cemetery is in a pretty bad shape, and many of the tombstones have
sunken into the soft ground or are completely overgrown with vegetation
or otherwise unreadable.

Again, congratulations on the "renewed" SIG !

Re: Stumped #general

ariewish@...
 

Hi List,

I need advice or suggestion(s). I have been looking for my grandfathers arrival
in the USA (twice) as well as my Uncle (arrived with my grandfather when he
returned the second time). Looked for my grandfather on EI (Morse) to no avail.
Looked for my Uncle with the same results. All I know that my grandfather
arrived some time before WWI started (1913 or 1914). He was admitted to the
States and lived in Cleveland, Ohio. He was a paddler (had a horse and a wagon
and worked the Norther Pa area). He left for Poland some time in 1923. He
couldn't get readjusted to life in Poland so he decided to go back to the
States. My grandmother didn't wish to go, so they decided that my Uncle will go
with him (1926 - 1930). When they arrived in the States (port or ship unknown)
both of them were refused entry. My grandfather wrote to somebody (I guess INS)
and he was allowed to enter, but not my Uncle, he traveled to Cuba and entered
the States some time after 1936 at which time my grandfather was already dead.
My questions are:

Where or to whom would one write to appeal a decision on admission?
Where would one find documents on people not admitted to enter?

One more item. I can't find them on any SS documents (Numbers or death
certificates). Any advise or suggestions are welcome.

Sincerely

Arie L. Wishnia.

Still searching the following:

Fw: ALTMAN-BULACH-WOLF-TUCHINSKY-KALSKY all from Bessarabia #general

Hello, I am looking for information on my Greatgrandparents:

a)s Rabbi Chaim ALTMAN (>from Hotin-Bessarabia)-married to Bassi Altman/I
think he died between 1905 and 1909

b) Rabbi Yesrael BULACH/BULAKH (>from Lipcon or maybe Hotin-Bessarabia),
married to Frima. I know that he died when he was in his late
twenties -probably before the turning of last century.
I heard that the Bulach might have come >from a village Bulakhi.
I also heard that there were connections in Kamenetz Podolsk

c) Israjel Myers Wolf married to Ester >from Brzezin-Poland and their
children (believe that they might have died in the Shoah
d) Jacob Tuchinsky ?Tushinsky married to Dobe Kalsky- >from Kiev and their
children

I also heard that there was a 'fetter' Moishe who was married without
children, and who was the owner of the transport system of Odessa and who
suddenly disappeared. No one heard about him again. I believe this would
have been around 1910.

I could not find any other information about them. Does anybody know
were I could find out any other information about them.

Thanks
