VM1796-Searching families of JACOBS, KUSHNICK, SILVERMAN, OSTROVSKY, FROHMAN Russia to Baltimore,MD #belarus

rlberliner@...
 

Please view the photo of the stone of Abraham JACOBS, buried next to Joseph
JACOBS, buried next to the mausoleum of the Rabbi of Aitz Chaim Synagogue in
Baltimore. The address is: http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/source/vm1796.html
and click on pix to enlarge as the stone is very dark.

Abraham I. Jacobs, buried in United Hebrew Cemetery, Washington Avenue,
Baltimore, MD, passed away 3/16/24. His first wife was Fannie JACOBS and at
the time of his death he was married to Mollie Jacobs. Mollie's son was
Aaron JACOBS.

Abraham was the father of Joseph JACOBS, Rosa KUSHNICK, Esther SILVERMAN,
Leah OSTROVSKY, and Rebeccah FROHMAN. Louis JACOBS, another son, passed
away May 13, 1919.

I am seeking descendants of the children and/or grandchildren of these
families.

Aaron JACOBS, stepson of Abraham Jacobs, son of Mollie JACOBS.

The Louis JACOBS children names are: Sadie, Celia, Jerome and Florence.

The SILVERMAN grandchildren names are: Silvan, Paul, Sadie, Morris and
Louis.

The OSTROVSKY grandchildren names are: Jennie, Julius, Yetta and Celia.

I do not have the married names of Sadie, Celia, Florence JACOBS, Sadie
SILVERMAN or Jennie, Yetta and Celia OSTROVSKY.

These descendants could be in Baltimore, MD, Richmond, Norfolk or Newport
News, VA, Washington, DC for assumed locations. However, they could be
anywhere.

I would greatly appreciate hearing >from anyone and everyone who can assist
in my finding this family. Please reply privately to rlberliner@aol.com or
rlberliner@comcast.net.

Welcome Bobruiskers! #belarus

I second and third Dave Fox's remarks.
Over the years, I have noticed that many Mogilev families had branches
in Bobruisk and in Gomel. I generally advise people looking in one of
these places to also look in the other two as well.
In our own case, we know there were at least two Talalay branches (from
the Mogilev city area and surrounding villages) in Bobruisk.
One small group went to America (my ggf's brother and his family to
Newark NJ), and the other (a seemingly much older branch just recently
discovered) married into the Katzenelson family (among others) who moved
to St. Petersburg and Moscow, as well as more recent immigrants to
Melbourne Australia and Brooklyn, NY etc).
Genealogy is all about sharing information, particularly in those
geographical areas where there was considerable movement among a few
closely-situated population centers.
I, for one, look forward to the cooperation and involvement of the
Bobruisk Interest Group in the Belarus SIG.

I have an old friend whose English name is Bernard.
We used to call him Berel. I am not sure of the
spelling. So, all I want to say is that
Berel/Beryl/etc, could also be Bernard.

MODERATOR'S NOTE: The original question, which was whether Berel and Benjamin could somehow be the same name, has been thoroughly answered in the negative. The thread is ended.


Re: Buried Treasure in Probate Court Records - and more #lithuania

Jerry Zeisler <jzeisler@...>
 

I have a somewhat similar tale to Scott Noar's regarding the benefit of
probate records, and one additional source that led me to nirvana.

In my case, I did not know whether or not my ancestors has made out a
will. I just wrote to the appropriate jurisdiction in Chicago and asked
for it. In some cases, as for my gg-grandfather, Eduard ZEISLER, his
will, if one existed, did not go through probate. On the other hand, I
hit paydirt with several of his children, as one will mentioned siblings
that I was unaware of at the time, and another mentioned that one
sibling had stayed behind in the old country, and had two children that
were killed in the Holocaust. We knew nothing of them.

That information is contained in a part of the will called the "Proof of
Heirship." During the probate process, one or more family members gives
testimony about the family members (parents, siblings, children,
cousins, etc) that they are aware of, whether dead or alive. This allows
the court to determine whether other family members exist that might
have a claim to the estate. Additionally, several of the wills left
money and family trinkets to a close family friend whom I did not know.
I contacted this person and he sent me several priceless photos that he
had kept of the family that had been taken at the turn of the century.
My family had no photos of any of them.

Another excellent source of information that I only recently came
across, provided me with what I had been searching for for my three+
years of research - the ships the family came in on and exactly when
they arrived. In my case, my family members who immegrated were
reasonably well-off financially and traveled frequently. Once they had
become Naturalized, they could request a passport. I couldn't belive the
information that was provided on the passport applications that I found
in the National Archives in Washington, DC. Birth town and date, arrival
date into the US, ship's name, departure point, how long they expected
to be out of the country on this trip, occupation, if they were bringing
family members and how many, the city the application was made in,
current address, where Naturalized and when, and most interesting, a
physical decription. I was lucky enough that my g-grandfather and his 2
brothers traveled several times to Europe, and therefore I have 6
passport applications over a period of about 21 years (>from 1890 to
1911). It was a most fantastic find and one that connected many parts of
the puzzle.

Witnesses on Birth records in Plock #poland

Annette Young
 

While searching birth records for 1862 in Plock, I find my gg grandparents
MIRKA REINES and ZAKET? BENYAMIN as witnesses to most of the other birth
records for that period. Would that indicate they were the religious body
present at that time and why would my ggm still use her maiden name?

Would appreciate any input as when checking the records for Goldberg family
members in Zundska Wola I found WOLF GOLDBERG or NEISON KROL as witnesses
on many of the of the births. WOFF GOLDBERG WAS also related. My ggf was
named MOSES KOHN [COHEN] and was married in Plock 1861 to HANNAH GOLDBERG.
Don't know where either were born though have found some of the GOLDBERG
family in Zundska Wola.

The suffix "owna" simply means unmarried woman, so this refers to Miss

The name Marks #poland

Eve Richardson <erchrdsn@...>
 

I have tried unsuccessfully to find the British birth records of my gr
grandmother and her sister. Their father was >from Poland, and all the
information I have regarding the family gives the last name as Marks. It has
been suggested that the name was actually something else earlier, and
changed to Marks after the daughters' birth. Is Marks a typical name for a
Polish Jew, or is more likely a shortened form of something else ?

Family History Library in New York City #poland

Mila Begun <mmbegun@...>
 

Dear Researchers,

A recent visit to the Mormon Church's Family History Center in New York
turned up some interesting new restrictions.

At present, they are not taking any requests for ordering microfilm or
microfiche >from Salt Lake City. This is temporary, but the duration is
unknown.

Additionally, the staff has speculated that in the future, the library
itself may have to be closed, also temporarily.

Both anticipated restrictions are because of pending construction and
possible reorganization of the layout of the rooms. They will be
building a new temple on the fifth and sixth floors, and other changes
will result >from this activity.

So, if you're planning a visit to NY and want to use the Library's
facilities, it will pay to check first, to make sure they are still
open.

The Family History Center is located at 125 Columbus Avenue at 65th
Street, on the second floor. Their usual hours are Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and Saturday >from 11:00
a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Telephone number is (212) 873-1690.
Regards, Mila Begun in NYC
