MILLER/GOODMAN in US, New Zealand and Argentina #general

FrancineSMiller@...
 

Hi,

I am trying to find any Goodmans living in the US, New Zealand
(Auckland) and Argentina (Buenos Aires).

My great-grandfather was Myer Miller (>from Plotsk, Poland)
and emigrated to London. He married Annie Goodman.
I know that Harry and Joe Goodman (US) were both in contact
with my Miller relatives in London during the last 30 years.
Joe was a radiologist who trained in Ipswich, England
and then emigrated to Auckland, New Zealand.
I also know that some Goodmans emigrated to
Buenos Aires, Argentina but I have no information
on them at all.
Any information would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,
Francine Miller

KRANTZMAN/WILLIAMS/MILLER #general

FrancineSMiller@...
 

Hi,

I am currently trying to track any living relatives
of Harry M. Krantzman.

I know that he was a naval officer
(trained at Indianapolis naval college)
and originally lived in the Boston area,
although contact between our families has not been made
for the last 40 years. He was related to my grandfather Harry Miller
from London (possibly 1st cousins?) and came over to visit in the 1960s.
I also know that there were other Krantzmans living in the Brookline,
MA area and that some changed their name to Williams.

The exact relationship between the Millers and the Krantzmans
is not quite known, but I know that a Nettie/Nellie Miller married a Krantzman.

Nettie/Nellie was the sister (?) of Myer Miller,
whose father, Yehuda, came >from Plotsk, Poland and married twice.
Myer was my paternal great-grandfather and his son was Harry Miller.
Any information at all would be most appreciated.

Many thanks,

Francine Miller, London

He was 17 years old! He didn't need his mother to come with him. Kids
below 10 traveled alone. My gr grandmother came to the US at age 11, but
supposedly 8 by herself in 1859.

He probably came to a relative or a friend >from his home town, as most did,
but at age 17 he could be an old married man with a couple of children. He
did not need to have someone, especially a woman, take care of him.

his
mother Mathilde came with him."

Jews in the Military, Poland, WWII #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

Through interlibrary loan, I have collected 6 volumes that list Jews
who served in the armed forces in Poland during World War II. The
author is Benjamin Meirtchak
(http://www.kazez.com/~dan/0830.Meirtchak.html). Within each volume,
there are many separate lists, thereby making a thorough search for a
surname across all of the volumes quite tedious. It would certainly
be useful to have these lists available on the web. I count about
600 pages in these books, for a total of (likely) over ten-thousand
names. Has anyone considered trying to make such a database on the
web? Or perhaps does one already exist?

LENCZNER/LENTZER, Szczekociny/Sosnowiec, Poland, BLOCK, GLICKSMAN, GRINBAUM, DEMBA, KOPLOWITZ/KAYE, WYMAN #general

desrx <desrx@...>
 

I have a new found cousin. I started searching in 1985 and it has taken me
all this time to find a relative in the same state.

My great grandmother was Liba Lenczner, b. 1878,
Szczekociny, Poland. My cousin is the s/o
David Lentzner, 1894-1967 and Tillie Block,
1899-1970. Tillie is the d/o Julius Block.

Unfortunately, my cousin knows about as much as I do.
He was unable to name his grandparents.
He stated there were ten siblings in his father's family.
He did know David's brother, Herman Lentzner, 1886-1952
and his wife Tillie Wyman, 1892-1969.

He stated after WWII, his father brought to the us,
Louis Grinbaum, a camp survivor and that Louis
was David's sister's son. I believe this would
be Golda Lenczner/Lentzner as my great grandmother,
reported to the INS that she had a sister
Golda who married a Grinbaum. My cousin did
not know of Liba nor her daughters,
Esther (Kalkopf) McTeer or Sylvia Zissel
(Frymorgen) Lipschultz. He did recall Bertha
(Liberman?/Lentzner) Blumenfeld of St. Louis,
but did not know the specific relationship to himself.
Bertha was Liba's oldest daughter.

He did stated that the late Eugene Wyman of
Los Angeles was his cousin and that he has
attended Harvard at the same time.
He believed when David first arrived,
he was with an uncle Glicksman and
recall that a Nathan and
"Willie" are cousins (both deceased).
There is some relationship to a Henry and Goldie
Koplowitz (some renamed to Kaye).
And lastly he recalled somehow
the Demba surname was or could be related.

If any of these additional surnames connect
with yours, please let me know.

records of arrivals prior to 1928? Do they respond to requests via e-mail?

Thanks.

Zeitlin family #belarus

Baronzeit@...
 

Until now I have been searching, quite successfully, for my ancestors >from
Mstislav and Mogilev Gub generally. I now have another, related query.

My gparents Morris & Annie lived in Manchester England >from 1891. Records
have revealed that the next year they lived in the same house as Solomon &
Sarah Zeitlin, and had a son Ellis almost exatly the same date as my gparents
had a daughter Esther.

What is intriguing & frustrating is that no-one in my family ever heard of
these other Zeitlins, in fact we were all convinced that our family were
alone in Manchester. I have searched all the records I can find without
success.

Presumably Solomon & Sarah moved on, possibly to USA (Although they are not
on the Ellis Island records) possibly back to Russia. Sarah's maiden name was
Ozernoff or Czernoff.

If anyone has any clue as to their movements, or existence, I would be most
grateful.

Searching: ZYLBERMAN/SILVERMAN #general

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

I have been building a family tree for the ZYLBERMAN/SILVERMAN
family >from the Przasnsyz/Chorzele area, north
of Warsaw, and have connected virtually every one
with that name >from those towns in a tree
that goes back to the 1700s.

I have been extending my search to the 1808-1825
co-mingled records and extracting the Jewish records
for nearby shtetlach like Krzynowloga Wielka
(a few miles outside of Chorzele).

I have found a few new family records (and one new member)
based on patrynomics alone >from these records
but was floored to find an Iciek Jakubowicz ZYLBERMAN
getting married in 1812! Not only was this my oldest
record found (so far) with the ZYLBERMAN
surname (previous best was 1827) but I have NOBODY
in the tree with the name Jakub.

How could this be? I have been pondering this
conundrum for a few weeks now.

I returned >from vacation yesterday, retrieved two
weeks of unopened mail and promptly sat down
to read the latest Avotaynu, starting with
Fay Bussgang's article on extracting
1808-1825 co-mingled, patrynomic-era records
(a topic dear to my heart right now).

She mentions finding a relative "Someone Jankiefowicz"
and notes (parenthetically!!) that Jankief is a diminutive for
Jakub...............BINGO!

I have lots of Jankief's in my tree and now have a clear avenue to research.

It just goes to show, you don't ever know where that new clue may come from.
