First let me say we are looking forward to your upcoming data bases. Have
been doing research on Manchester relatives for several years with many
unanswered questions.
MY Grandparents Abraham Cohen & Yetta Blumenstein were married in 1899 at 24
Julia Street, Cheatham in Manchester as well as several Farber relatives at
later dates. Have also found death records of Annie [Hannah] Cohen in 1913
my ggm and Morris [Moses] Cohen in 1921 my ggf as last address 24 Julia
Street. At one time other relatives [Goldbergs] lived at same address. How
do I find out who owned this property >from 1899 to 1921?

Robinson/Friedheim Town(s) of Origin #lithuania

Carol J. Robinson <caroljr@...>
 

I am trying to confirm the town(s) of origin of my Robinson family. My
grandfather was born in London, but his parents and grandparents came
from Russia. I was told they were >from the Vilna area. I have been
able to track down two pieces of evidence regarding their origin:

1. Isaac and Betsy (Yochabeila) Robinson's manifest. Their places of
birth listed on the manifest are hard to read but appear to be Galivan,
Gelivan, or Gelnaii, Russia. Yochabeila's maiden name was Freidheim,
and I found a Freidheim family arriving at Ellis Island as follows:
Sore and Chame Freichleim (children, last name mistranscribed) and Beila
Freidheim (mother, joining husband Carl Freidheim in NYC), January 02,
1904, place of residence Gelivan and Gilivan, Russia respectively.

2. Naturalization papers for Louis Robinson, Isaac and Yochabeila's
son. His birthplace (and that of his wife, Rachel) seems to read Velina
Russia, though the first letter is not absolutely certain.

I tried ShtetlSeeker and Shtetls of Lithuania and don't feel confident
that I have properly identified these locations. I would appreciate any
thoughts and information regarding them (and of course any contact with
anyone connected to these families). My Robinsons and Freidheims lived
in Chicago, Illinois once they arrived in the United States.

Genealogy of Arthur MILLER #general

Dear Genners,

We are searching for the names of the parents of the playwright Arthur
Miller. Also their shtetl back in Lithuania (we think).

A possible link may be a Mark Miller in Louisville about 1924, perhaps a
cousin of the parents of A>M>

If there is anyone who can help please contact me privately.

Thank you,
Ros Romem


Chana/Chasa #general

Elynn Boss <bossgen@...>
 

I'll add my two cents. My Hebrew middle name is Chana, named for my
great-grandmother Chana. Anna is on her death certificate and
gravestone, and she never learned English. My grandmother always called
me Chansie.
