Romanian Shul - St. Louis - Missouri. #romania

Nigel Wilson <wilsonettes@...>
 

Dear Genners,

from previous requests and your responses I now know more about my family in
St. Louis.

However, I still need help…

JOSEPH and NECHAME NADLER >from Botosani, Romania, together with their
children Rifka (Beckie), Moritz (Morris), Yirl, Sima and Naftule arrived in
St. Louis in 1902. Address 8015 7th St. St. Louis (how long they stayed
there for I don’t know).

Although it has taken time I have found out that Beckie married a Max
Hershkowitz and moved to New York, buried in Elmont Long Island. Morris
married a Fannie Seigal, had 6 children and continued to live in St. Louis,
and is buried there. (I am now in contact with members of his family)

Through the most wonderful volunteers working for the St. Louis Genealogical
Soc I have found the burial place of Joseph, but not of his wife Nechame.
Nor can I find any information on their other children Yirl, Sima and
Naftule.

Morris was married in 1906 by Rabbi Z Rosenfeld of the Sheerith Sfard
Congregation (Romanian shul) also know as Chevrah Sheiray Sfard. Records of
this congregation were I was told kept in the St. Louis Jewish Library in
the Brodsky Centre. Again a most wonderful volunteer went to check this out
but found ‘the box’ contained nothing more than a few inconsequential
papers.

How can records of a large congregation just disappear when the shul becomes
defunct? Surely there must be ledgers of births/marriages/deaths somewhere?

A Dr. Walter Ehrlich has written a book entitled Zion in the Valley (about
the Jews of St. Louis) – does anyone know how I can contact this gentleman
directly to see if he has any information?

Does anyone have family who used to belong to the Sheerith Sfard
Congregation and might be able to throw light on the matter?

The other Romanian shul in St. Louis was the Ahavas Achim Anshei Romania –
however as Morris was married under the auspices of the Sheerith Sfard I
shall concentrate my search towards that community whose members were mostly
buried in the Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery.

I look forward to any suggestions anyone may have.

Thank you all once again for your previous assistance.

Early 20th Century Census Data #romania

Arik Solomon <Arik@...>
 

Fellow SIGers,

Does anyone know if there is a Hungary/Romania online census data >from
the early 20th century (1900-1930).
If not online, where else is it possible to get such data ?
I know that areas such as Transylvania (which I'm interested in)
switched hands more than once during this period of time, this is why I
want both censuses if available.


Thanks,

Arik Solomon

Tulchin #general

zerakodesh@...
 

Hello

I would like to be in touch with anyone who is searching for
their families >from Tulchin.

The convention in Toronto was wonderful. I even met a person
whose family is >from Tulchin who I had communicated with before.
She looked so much like my niece.

There is a whole group of people >from Tulchin in Duluth, Minnesota.
Many settled in Philadelphia, others in South America.

There is one family I would like to be in touch with, it was the
Wise,Weiss and other spellings of that name, so far, no replies.
I found them on the The Family Tree of Jewish People. Any ideas
or answers would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for any help you can offer. Tulchin was not such a
large place so many of these people may be related with out their
knowledge. There were so many cousin marriages, my mother's sister
married her first cousin.

Hello again,

In relating my thanks for all the help I received in locating
the information about my relative who died on Ellis Island, I
inadvertently left out two important people:

Cathy Horn, for her story about the "Forgotten of Ellis Island,"
and Rafael Guber for his article "When Genealogists Read History."
Both of those resources were of tremendous help. My thanks to both
of you.

is in the AJA. This file does contain a subfile of reminiscences of
members of the Jewish Community of Buffalo, NY that Selig Adler
collected when he was writing >from Ararat to Suburbia. There is quite
a bit of family information in this file.

Can anyone tell me where to go to get some information about this
school? My father Simon Sieger (AKA Simon Stander) graduated high
school at Harlem Prep (in NYC) about 1922. I would like to find
out something about the school, and see if I can access any school
records, but I don't know where to look. I assume the school was
a public school, since my father as a Polish immigrant (Ostrow
Mazowiecka) could not afford a private school. The school went out
of existence I believe around 1970. Many thanks for your advice.
