SOL2516171@...
 

I am looking for information about the descendants of Moses HERMAN (b.
1821 Altenkunstadt, Bavaria) and Sophia Goldstein (b. ca. 1832) of New
York City. Here is what I know about their children:

1. Henry Herman (b. ca.1859), had a son Henry, Jr.
2. Max Herman
3. Sol Herman
4. Henrietta Herman (b. ca. 1862), married Leon Lewis, had a son Clarence
Lewis
5. Samuel Herman (b. ca. 1865)
6. Laura Herman (b. ca. 1868), married Louis Ulmann, had a daughter Irma
Ulmann who married Eli Neuberger, they had two sons, John and Roger
Neuberger
7. Pauline Herman, married ? Steinweg, they had three children, Martha,
Alma and Arthur Herman

Two of Moses's siblings also lived in the US: Abraham Herman and Babette
(Elizabeth) Herman Butzel of Saugerties, NY.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone know anything about the Red Cross Sanitarium in Lvov, and
particularly about Dr. Joseph GUTSTADT who was a doctor there in the
1920's?
Thanks for your help.

Sanatorium Czerwonego Krzyza (Red Cross Sanatorium) was located before the
WWII on 107 Lyczakowska Street, Lwow.
I do not have access to other information about the sanatorium or its
personnel. Dr Gutstadt name does not appear in the medical doctors list of
1929 Lwow.
There were other two known sanatorium in Lwow prior to WWII:

- Dr. Swiatkowski Sanatorium, 54 Dwiernicka street and
- Sanatorium of the "Against theTuberculosis" Association. This lung
desease sanatorium has been actually located in Holosko Wielkie, village
near Lwow (2 miles distance). It is also possible that Dr. Gutstadt was
employed by other sanatorium in Eastern Galicia as a "seasonal" doctor.
for example, Spa Truskavets near Boryslaw (mineral waters) employed large
amount of doctors on the seasonal (the late spring to early autumn)
contarcts. Other sanatorium in Eastern Galicia were located mostly
alongside the eastern slopes of Carpathian Mountains known as Bieskid
Wschodni. Spa Morszyn near Stryj was one of those known spa/sanatorium
places.

Hope this help

Missing Manifests #general

Don Einbinder <donjein@...>
 

I had previously found the text manifest for my uncle, but was unable to
find the original manifest on the EIDB site. Even the Morse missing
manifests page yielded no results after trying several times. Last
night I tried once more and, lo and behold, there it was! Does this
mean that original manifests are still being added to the EIDB, or is
there some other explanation?

A very large database (help needed) #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

Somehow, I am drawn to this enormous collection of names. Surely,
there should be some value in this! I have had a closer look at these
files. I downloaded all of the files that list the names. The good
news is that nearly 2 million people are listed. The bad news is that
they are listed by their first names, rather than their last names.
Further bad news: Although I have downloaded all of the individual
files, I am unable to combine the many files into one files nor am I
able to sort them by surname--simply because I lack the necessary skill
or software. If anyone is able to work with large databases I will be
happy to send these files. In all, there are 26 files--a total of 24
megabytes of text files (zipped, it comes to 9 megabytes). Or, as php
files, a total of 112 megabytes (zipped, it is 20 megabytes). (No, I
am not familiar with "php" files.)

I hope that someone with some need knowledge/skill will respond.

For those eager to find an outrageously large list of
names, this site will certainly please you:

http://www.repcheck.com/names/

I found it, entirely by chance, after I entered a certain
name that interests me at this search engine:

http://www.alltheweb.com/

I offer no promise that http://www.repcheck.com/names/
will hold great value for you. I do, however, know that
it includes at least 3 million names. (And, more important,
I was able to learn the current city and state of the
person for whom I was looking.)

Re: The name Pesse #germany

Judith Romney Wegner
 

While checking the EIDB I came across the given name Pesse,
20 years of age.
Does anyone know the origin of meaning of that name?

Pesse, usually spelled Pessa, is a yiddish name spelled
peh-ayin-samekh-aleph. Another version is Pesha, spelled with shin instead
of samekh. To the best of my knowledge it does not correspond to any Hebrew
name (nor does it have a specific English equivalent, though Bessie was
often chosen as a sound-alike). Presumably the name Pessa/Pesha is of
Polish origin; it was the name of my maternal grandmother whose parents
emigrated to England >from Poland around 1870.

Pessa was not only her Yiddish name; it also appears as her English name on
her British birth certificate. But I discovered this only recently, when
I searched for her birth record. At the time, I knew only that her name
had been "Priscilla" -- which was later given to me and to one of my
cousins as a middle name because she died shortly before we were born. But
when I searched for a "Priscilla" Cohen born in England in 1878 I drew a
blank; there were half a dozen Priscilla Cohens born in the surrounding
years, but none in 1878. Eventually, I got her marriage authorization
certificate >from the Beth Din, and that is how I learned that her official
name in both Yiddish and English was actually Pessa. And there was indeed
a Pessa Cohen in the birth register for 1878, who turned out to be the
right person.

My guess is that she acquired the name Priscilla when she started school;
possibly she (or her mother) gave her name as "Pessy," which her English
schoolteacher could easily have misconstrued as "Prissy."
