Levy: Caernarvon, Wales, Schocken, Poland #unitedkingdom

Lois Kaufman <lois@...>
 

Dear Members,

Perhaps you can help me with two queries.

I think that I may have found the (1896) UK naturalisation document of my
g-grandmother's half-brother, Solomon Levy. His age (56), his year of entry
into the UK (1850) and the name of his father (same as that of my
g-g-grandfather - Abraham Levy) are all positive indicators. In the
naturalisation document it states that he was born in Schocken, Germany. I
have looked up the Jewishgen shtetlseeker, but cannot be sure which Schocken
(or variant spellings) I should be looking for. I would presume that it
would be somewhere near Posen (current day Poznan in Poland) as this is
where Abraham Levy's second wife was born and where my g-grandmother's elder
(full)brother was born. Can anyone point me in the right direction here?

Another question I have refers to Solomon Levy's witnesses. They were all
from Caernarvon, Wales. Now this is strange to me as my Levy's lived in
Leeds and Manchester, and I had thought that I'd located my Solomon Levy in
Manchester in the 1871 and 1881 census. (Maybe that was another Solomon
Levy?) Indeed, according to the naturalisation document, he had been living
at 36 Elizabeth Street, Cheetham, Mancehster >from April 1890 to November
1895. Does anyone know if records of the Jewish community of Caernarvon
exist and how it might be possible to access them.

As usual, my research opens up more questions than it answers!

Regards,

Lois Kaufman

Vital Records in Lithuania #general

Victoria Reed <victoriajreed@...>
 

I have been doing research for a friend who was born in Lasdai, Lithuania
and lived there until she was 16 years old. Her family then emigrated to
Israel.

She has just returned >from a month spent in her home town. Before she
went,I gave her the locations for the records of Lasdai. She went to the
archives, and I will paraphrase what she told me on the phone tonight "They
told me that if I was interested in birth records or death records, that
they would be impossible to find . . . that they were probably destroyed,
etc. etc."

When I see her on Wednesday I will ask her which of the archives she went
to. Has anyone else had a hard time with Lithuanian records? It seems
that she should have had every advantage - she speaks and reads the
language fluently - not only is it her native tongue, but she is a
professor of Russian at Stanford University.

Should she have just been more persistent? What's going on here?!

My grandfather, ALEC GOLD (or Goldman), had a brother
who retained their surname VICTOR (Victorovich). His
first name may have been Isaac. Alec had various
professions in East End of London, but I remember him
as having a fruit stall in Watney Street market in 1950's.
Alec died in 1961 age approx. 85.
He was married twice, once to Annie Schiller (my
maternal grandmother) who died in 1913, leaving
4 young children. A few
years later Alec married Sarah and had two children
with her.
Alec's brother ? VICTOR had a daughter named Rae.
His wife may have been Betsy Victor.
That is all I know of this branch.
Looking for anyone with any information/knowledge of
this family.

Searching re: Ukmerge shtetls #general

ourabey@...
 

I am still searching for shtetls in the vicinity of Ukmerge. My family
left the area in 1906. Their manifest states they are >from Vilkomer but
I cannot find the family on any list in the database. My uncle was 6
when he arrived in US but would not discuss his life until he was in his
90s just a year or so prior to his death. At that time he said his town
was called Pude or Prude but I have not foud any evidence of a town with
a nickname even similar. To make the research even more difficult, the
family took the name of COHEN. The manifest says their name is COHN. I
am rather sure they were told by relatives already in US to use that
name. The relative already here was Louis KAPLAN who lived in Glens
Falls New YOrk. According to family lore, he took his wife's surname
upon their marriage. The death certificate for Louis Kaplan gives Cohen
as the surname of his father. But there was no name Cohen in Lithuania
at the turn of the century. Clues and advice very welcome.


By the way, does the Lithuanian database provide the most recent census
information? What is available closest to 1900?

Thank you
Marcia Cohan Silberfarb
reseaching: Ukmerge and vicinity in Lithuania;
KAPLAN, COHEN, BERNSTEIN in Glens Falls New York.
Louis and Sara KAPLAN lived briefly prior to 1900 in Philly, PA.
Rose BERNSTEIN sister to Louis KAPLAN; married to Morris BERNSTEIN
BERNSTEIN and KAPLAN were business partners in Glens Falls.


Seeking BOROKOV/BROOKS, KAPLAN, MATLIN, ZISLIN #general

Judi Rubenstein <jpepi@...>
 

I would like to post the following:

I am seeking the children of Sidney KAPLAN, known to have lived in or
around Washington, DC, in the late 1950s-1960s. Sidney, b. circa 1910-1918
in Syracuse, NY, was the son of Sadie BORKOV (or Borookov) and Samuel
Kaplan.
The brothers of Sidney were Harry Kaplan and Bennett Kaplan Carter; a
sister of Sidney was Irene Kaplan. The parents of Samuel Kaplan were Elcon
Kaplan and Sarah REVA; Sadie was possibly one of many children of Benjamin
Borookov and Sarah MATLIN of Schklov. Russia.

Please reply private fo: jpepi@....

Thank you.
