Re: "New Constantine, Ukraine" #general

On 9/3/02 Mel Sofian wrote that he was researching his late wife's
SPITALNY family, and that he had found a note among her papers which "said
that their town had been translated as "New Constantine" supposedly in the
(now) Ukraine."

Vaguely remembering that there was an orchestra leader named Phil
SPITALNY I did a "google" search, and learned that he was born in Odessa
but that his grandfather came >from "the suburbs of Tetiev." I also found
that he had two brothers one of whom was named named Maurice, who was a
theatrical director. However, it seems that these SPITALNY brothers lived
in Cleveland, whereas the SPITALNY family of Mr. Sofian's late wife
settled in New Jersey.

According to Chester G. Cohen's "Shtetl Finder Gazetteer" "New
Constantine" is "Konstantine Chadash" or "Novokonstantinov" which is
southwest of Kiev and east of Proskurov.

I looked up Tetiev on the Internet and in the "ShtetlFinder Gazetteer" and
learned that it too is south of Kiev but is west of Stavishtch
(Stavische).

What the connection might be between Mr. Sofian's late wife's SPITALNY
family and Phil SPITALNY and his family, if any, I must leave to Mr.
Sofian to puzzle over as well as the problem of finding Hyman SPITALNY's
ship manifest, a problem made more difficult now that Steve Morse's site
has been shut down.

We have just learned that Les Eldridge, a good friend to JewishGen
and a member of LitvakSIG, was struck by a speeding car and killed
early Friday morning. Les had been attending a wedding in Lakewood,
NJ and was walking to his car when he was hit.

Our sincere condolences to Les' family and to his friend Florence

UK 1901 Census is on-line #lithuania

For those wishing to trace ancestors who left
Lithuania, Belarus and elsewhere and settled in, or
passed through, Britain, please note that the UK 1901
Census, covering England and Wales, is now currently
on-line (as a test site) at www.census.pro.gov.uk

It is uncertain how long the site will remain on-line,
but is well worth a visit if you had family members in
the UK on March 31, 1901.

Refugee organisation in Vienna 1939 #general

Robert Fraser <rgfraser@...>
 

When my late Mother left Vienna in August 1939 for the United Kingdom,
a Jewish refugee organisation was still operating there. I'm curious to
find out which one it was. No details appear in any of her personal
documents or memoirs.

Could it have been the "Joint", mentioned recently on JGEN or perhaps
was it a local organisation?

Any suggestions appreciated

Re: Machzike Hadath Anshei Zborow - how do I locate temple records? #general

Judith27
 

The 1939 WPA listing would appear to be for a shul that was by then
defunct and no longer in existence. In the section for "Former Synagogue
Locations" in Oscar Israelowitz's *Synagogues of New York City ~ History
of a Jewish Community* there is a listing on page 80 for a Machzikel
Hadath Anshei Zborow that once used to be at 89 Ridge Street, Manhattan,
New York, but no time frame is given.
You might check the listing in the microfilm of the 1939 WPA Project
which is at the NYC Municipal Archives, as some of the defunct card
entries occasionally gave some additional information, such as location,
and year of organization, and if the shul possibly merged with another
synagogue. However, many of the defunct shul cards have no further data.
You might also check for possible listings in the various Manhattan
City Directories to see if there was any listing for this shul when it was
in existence or for possible incorporation papers in Manhattan.

Landsmanshaft organization Query #general

jselig3460@...
 

Genners:
I have often pondered the question of whether or not all members of a
landsmanshaft come >from the shtetl,or vicinity, upon which the
organization is based. How do we then account for so many of the married
couples being members? I suspect that, often, membership is a practical
and social convenience.
Nevertheless, the intense emotional attachment to a former world must be
present. I can only put it to our membership, to recall the conversations
from their childhood when keeping an ear open to the conversation of their
elders to bring enlightenment to this subject. My research in this area
provides only conjecture, not hard data.

Searching for Marika VERO #general

Vivian Kahn <vkahn@...>
 

I'm trying to locate Marika (Maria) VERO, my second cousin. She was
born in Debrecen, Hungary, in 1942 and is the daughter of Piroska
MARKUS VERO, my father's first cousin, and Zoltan VERO. Piroska was
born in 1913 in Sepsiszentgyorgy, Hungary (now Sfate Gheorghiu,
Rom.). Zoltan was born in Nyirbator, Hungary in 1905 and was
reported missing on the Russian front in January 1943.

In December 1949, Marika was living with her mother, stepfather Bandi
(Andras?) and a 17-year old step-brother in Budapest. The family may
have emigrated to Argentina or Chile in 1956-57.

Any info or suggestions on how to trace this family will be appreciated.

NYS Census 1905 - indexed by street addresses for Manh nd part of the Bronx #general

Dear Evan,
I don't know who your family are but there is a l905 NYS Census
which is indexed by address for Manhattan. I have found many
family that way >from the manifests and then checking the
l905, 1915 and 1925 NYS and 1910 US Censuses. They are
available at the NYPL at Fifth AVenue and 42nd Street. But
remember they are now closed on Mondays.

According to the manifest >from the SS Germanic arriving in NYC on
August 15, 1904, p. 170, lines 15 & 16, my great grendfather
'Mendel SHTEIN" (actually Pinchas Mendelstein) was headed to a
Mr. L(ouis) Israel at 377 E.. 101 St.with an "Israel ROGENBLAT".
According to the manifest my great grandfather was a cousin to this
individual, while Mr. Rogenblat was a brother-in-law. Does anybody
have an idea who either Israel ROGENBLAT or L(ouis) ISRAEL was?

Dear Colleagues,

For a feature on the value of Jewish genealogical conferences, especially
those outside of major research centers, Avotaynu would like to hear from
those who had personal research successes as a result of the recent Toronto
conference. It might be a lecture that had particular relevance, a database
with information about an ancestor[s], a tip picked up while networking, or
something else.

Please send your contributions to me at this e-mail address.

Thank you.
