Re: Chasidic Dress #general

Josh Brown <gettysburg63@...>
 

Hello:

While we are on the topic of Chasidic clothes, I have a question: we have
a painting of my ggggrandfather, Srul Avram SEITZMANN, born c. 1830. Even
though he was >from Ukraine, I have been told that he and other members of
his family look Hungarian. In this painting, he does not have the clothes
of the Chasids I have seen. He is wearing a large fur hat, and a silver
coat over a black shirt with no buttons or pockets, but it looks like it
might have a collar. He has a long beard and moustache. Does anyone know
which type of Chasidim he might belong to, and why the strange cape? If
you would like, I can send you a scanned in version.

Thanks,
Josh Brown


Biblical Names #general

When searching biblical names (Old and New Testament) try this site:
http://bible.crosswalk.com/
A search will return several references for the same name as found in
various sources. Caveat: the search engine will only produce results
with exact spellings. Thus Myriam would result in zero finds while
Miriam would return five. Also one can't use the Hebrew and Latin
variants, like Yitzhak for Isaac or Petrus for St. Peter.

Isn't it possible to get Aleks to do the research in the archives? Isn't

Searching ABRAMOWITZ family-Novarodok-Hartford,Ct., USA #general

יונתן בן ארי <yonatan@...>
 

My greatgreatgrandmother, Gittle ABRAMOWITZ,left Novaradok as a widow at
the end of the 19th cent. and came to the USA via some time in Liverpool
where she remarried (name of husband unknown). To the best of my knowledge
she settled in Hartford,Ct (or possibly New Haven) According to family
sources there was a family connection, which hasn't been clarified yet,
with Rabbi HUREWITZ in Hartford.

Gittle left Novarodok with four children, three boys-Meir, Kalman and the
third not known- and a daughter Sarah.

Meir, my greatgrandfather was sent to Eretx Yisrael as a child with his
brother Kalman. Kalman returned to the states as a youth and Meir stayed
to raise a family in Israel. Sarah had lived in New York. The fourth
sibling, name unknown, was said to have seek his fortune in Boston and
supposedly found work in a department store and may have even married into
the family of the owners.

My mother, Adina KATZOFF (nee ABRAMOWITZ), had contact with some offspring
of Sarah during the early 30's (through a grandson Tom whose parents had
divorced, he lived with his father in Boston) but since then, I beleive she
has not had any contact with Sarah's family. With Kalman's descendants
there was a bit more connection over the years, in Israel and the USA. But
nothing is known about the unknown named brother who went to Boston.

If this story sounds familiar to anyone we (my mother and I and our family)
would like to hear

A happy new year to one and all

First Name: Nocher #general

Joan Parker <housemom@...>
 

Dear Genners:

I know what nochus means in Yiddish, but recently I found information
about my Uncle Irving whose name on the 1910 NY census was Isadore, later
to be come Irving. but on the arrival in 1905 manifest it is Nocher. Is
there an *English* equivalent to Nocher? My Dad was listed as Iszchok
which probably is Itsaak and was Ike on the 1910 census. He ultimately
became Ernest.

Thanks for any help or information.

Viewmate Polish/German? Records - Translation needed #general

Michael Herzlich
 

I have received >from JRI Poland/AGAD 4 records >from their archives, two
of which I have posted as 4 images (right and left hand page of each
entry). The first two images are a death record of Ester Treiber Herzlich
in 1882. The last two are the birth of Ester Herzlich in 1886. I would
appreciate assistance in getting these documents translated and
understanding their contents. The language should be Polish, but I would
not know. After these two are removed >from viewmate I hope to get the
other two documents uploaded, the death of the child, Ester, and birth of
another child, Selde. Hopefully, >from these four documents I will be able
to see any relationships.

The much-maligned Morton Allan Directory #general

michael steinore <belaroots@...>
 

From: "Haviva Langenauer" <havival@bellsouth.net>
I have found two different dates for the arrival of the ship. EIDB says
that the Batavia arrived April 24, 1906. The Morton Allan directory says
the ship arrived April 21, 1906. Is there an undisputed source for the
correct date?

It's more a matter of correctly interpreting the dates. My theory is that
Morton-Allan records the date the ship formally docked at port, while the
passenger lists (and therefore EIDB) record the date the steerage
passengers were processed on Ellis Island. Aren't these two dates always
the same? No. The reason is that Ellis Island, particularly >from 1900 to
1914, was often incapable of handling the daily volume of incoming
passengers. Sometimes steerage passengers had to wait on the ship while
it was docked in port for a day, two or three, until they could be brought
to Ellis Island for processing. Whenever I've had a date discrepancy, I
check the NY times, which recorded daily ship arrivals in port, and it has
always matched the Morton-Allan directory date. In fact, if I had been
asked to create the Morton-Allan directory, I would have simply used the
NY times ship arrival listings, and that may have been what was done. For
the immigration organization that created the Morton-Allan directory,
knowing the ship arrival date would have been more than sufficient to
quickly locate the passenger list, because only a handful of ships arrived
each day. Today what people want to know is the passenger-processing
date, which Morton-Allan frequently matches, but not always.
