Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

When using the soundex-Daitch-Mokotoff to look for the name TREPMAN on the
"All Belarus Database" 19 listings with the spelling TREJBMAN. I would like
to hear someone's opinion if they could be the same surname or not.

Re Assistance with Ellis Island Database pls #general

Shelly Klink <winding924@...>
 

Marcia,
When looking for names of relatives I have found using
nicknames, and yiddish/ Hebrew names seem to help. I
found my grandmother whose names was Beckie in
English, Baila in Hebrew/Yiddish but on the manifest
was Babe which was a nickname. This might help as it
did in my case. Good luck in your quest.

Re: Mid-19th Century Naturalizations, Buffalo, NY #general

Sally Bruckheimer
 

All Erie County, NY naturalizations before 1906 have
been collected at Erie County Hall. There was an
index which was made in the 30's by WPA, I think. The
index was filmed by the Mormons, so most can search
locally at a FHL. The books of actual petitions are
at Old Erie County Hall, 25 Delaware Ave., Buffalo,
NY. However, since they are open to the public, I
think some of the volumes may have gone missing.

Please be aware that early petitions and certificates
do not contain much information. You may get a
petition which states that your ancestor 'gives up his
allegiance to the King of ____' and nothing more.
However you get his signature and a couple witnesses,
and you may get something more-an arrival date (which
might or might not be correct).

I have good luck in locating ship arrival information using Cimorelli site:
http://www.cimorelli.com/safe/shipmenu.htm

Check this list of FHL microfilms for NYC arrivals >from jewishgen. There are
passenger soundex indexes for the years you are searching in. If you have a
LDS Family History site near you then you can order the appropriate films
and start your search.

I have had success in using Stephen Morse's wonderful site to get

information >from the Ellis Island database, but I still cannot find the
person I am hunting and I feel he will be an important key in getting
information on my family because he was the first of the siblings to join
his uncle. I do not know the town he travelled >from although the
naturalization papers say Vilkomir, because I am fairly sure these were
not city people. Also the ship listed, Etruria >from Hamburg also appears
inaccurate. I do not know if it is the ship name or the port, and
definitely the date is not accurate.

To make it worse, our family name
is Cohen which I am sure is not original but what it was is unknown. I
know this person was young, I found him in the 1905 census living with
his uncle in Glens Falls, NY. Is there a way I can see manifests for
1904,1905 to check on passenger destinations. Surely this Glens Falls
uncle will be listed there, as he is for family tht arrived two years
later..

ANY suggestion is welcome. How to find the dates the Etruria sailed and
from where; how to get destination names/addresses >from the manifests.
Also, this person's name was Eleazer, a name that rarely is shown on the
Ellis Island lists. Was there another name that was commonly used in its
place? Here this person became Sam Ellis. I have also looked up
Sam,.Smuel, Simon, etc, without success.

Thanks for any ideas.

search for city of "Berdiansh" #general

Burt Altman <baltman@...>
 

I'd like to thank all the members who responded to my query about the
Russian or Yiddish origins of my grandmother's
Americanized name, "Bessie," and those who helped me in translating my
paternal grandfather's Russian passport. All of your suggestions and
responses were quite helpful.

My ultimate purpose is to track down my family lineage on my maternal and
paternal grandparents side. My maternal grandfather, who took the name
'Sheff," (>from Korestoschewski) is >from the Ukraine, and my paternal
grandfather, who took the name "Altman," (>from Barrett, or a version
thereof) came >from a city called "Tarnopol," which was intermittently
Russian, Polish, and Austrian, but at the time he lived there, it was part
of Austria-Hungary.

I would like to inquire >from the list if anyone has heard of the town of
"Berdiansh," in the Ukraine? It was listed on the Ellis Island ship
manifest as my paternal grandfather's place of residence. Other possible
places of residence I have documented are Kobelyaki and Kerch, and through
your help, I've located those places.

Does "Berdiansh" ring a bell with anyone? Could it be some type of
spelling variation of another town, or the shortened form for another town?

Also, if I can assist anyone with my discoveries, please let me know. This
is a terrific discussion group.

Many thanks --

Burt Altman
