Searching Descendants of Max HELLMAN #lithuania

rlberliner@...
 

I am posting this for cousins who are great grandchildren of Max HELLMAN.
Annie JACOBS, his wife, was my aunt.

We believe Max came >from Latvia as the census taker wrote he was >from Riga.
His parents were Samuel and Augusta HELLMAN.

He was married to Annie JACOBS who was born in England and was the daughter
of Joseph and Rachel JACOBS. Her family first migrated >from London to
Baltimore, MD .Max & Annie migrated >from New York or Baltimore to Atlanta,
GA. Max had a sister whose name according to family lore was Mary Birkhan* and she lived in the Bronx, NY at one time.
Mary's daughter was Gussie FRIEBERG.
Gussie's daughter, Ruth, married a Dr. FOX.
Gussie also had a son, Milton FRIEBERG.
There was a Rabbi FRIEBERG in Bay Ridge in Brooklyn whose niece may have
been related to the HELLMAN family.
There are supposedly additional nieces of Max HELLMAN who once resided in
the East New York area of Brooklyn.

Max HELLMAN was born in 1862 and married Annie JACOBS 11/14/1886. He died inAtlanta, GA on 12/27/1935 and is buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Atlanta.
Facts >from his obituary were printed as follows:
1. He was a tailor who had emigrated >from Russia
2. He was prominent in local Jewish affairs.
3. Two daughters: Miss Frances HELLMAN and Mrs.
(Leah) Nathan WOLFF (NYC)
4. 4 sons: Abraham Joseph ("Abe") HELLMAN of
Chester, S.C.; Jacob J. ("Jim") HELLMAN of
Atlanta,
Elias and William HELLMAN of Spring Valley, N.Y.
5. One sister: Mrs. Mary BICKHANN*, NYC
* Mary's surname could also have been BIRKHAN(N) and/or Mary FINEBERG.

Thanks in advance to all who may be able to help us find Uncle Max HELLMAN's descendants and any other helpful information.

Please reply privately to: hellmana@bellsouth.net

danielle freedman <daniellefreedman640@...>
 

I have never posted this surname before, - but hope you can help me.
My gg grandma - JAYNE GILBERG married Israel Pasersky in Manchester in 1874. She was aged 21 B: 1853. She came >from VILCOVIKS/VILNA/VOLKAVITCH, she came to the UK manchester aged 11 with her older brother Charlie - who was in the jewlary business. They left there parents back home, and lived with her aunt & uncle in Fernie Street. Her Aunt was called Betsey & uncle was called Barnet - they had 5 children - Annie, Meyer, Harris, Simon, Sofia. There was also a Marks Gilberg who lived next door married to Zetta he was born in 1819.

Does this family name mean anything to anyone - all this info is on the 1881 census it says there were >from Poland. Was VILCOVITCH in Poland? or is this another family.

Re: Catchy Subject Lines #general

Curiousyl@...
 

Varda - It is a good idea - once in a while - to review
the JewishGen guidelines for postings:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/DiscussionGroup.htm

<< IV. How to Post Messages to the Entire Group

<< SUBJECT LINE
Provide a clear and descriptive Subject line. (Think of
the message subject line as a headline capturing the central
point of the message you are sending.) If for example you
are asking a question about the 1910 Federal Census, it makes
no sense to write a general subject line such as: "Need census
information"; you need to be much more specific and can still
keep it short by saying "Need 1910 Census Info", for example. >>

Of course - you are free to write whatever you wish, but if
we all didn't follow the guidelines - there would be more
deletions than readings. And there wouldn't be a need for
Moderators! << grin >>

Advice about payment for information... #general

Daniel Gee <DanielGee@...>
 

Dear Genners,
A former USSR country's archive office has requested payment
for copies of certificates. I am pretty sure the letter is
genuine and it instructs me to make my payment in USD. The
problem is that I am in England (where we use the pound
sterling) and it is hugely expensive to get a cheque made up
in dollars. Can any British Genners advise me of the easiest/
cheapest way to make a payment in USD. I am admitting my
ignorance as I hope someone will take pity on me!

Thank you in advance,
Daniel Gleek in London.
