Re: Find immigration manifest and naturalization papers for Jake Brostoff? #usa #records

The Becker's Email
 

The 1930 census for Princeton, IL for Jake Brostoff gives his year of immigration as 1921.  So, I believe the "ar. 4-6-21" on the index card is his date of arrival. The 1930 census records his citizenship status as  "Pa", meaning first papers.  Although the census was taken in April, 1930 possibly the "leg. 6-13-30" has to do w/ his declaration.
The naturalization index card (Ancestry:  Illinois, Federal Naturalization Records, 1840-1991) has that he was naturalized in the "Cir. Bureau Co. Princeton, IL".   That is the Circuit Court for Bureau County, IL.  The index has a vol/page number of P-759 and a naturalization date of Jan. 4, 1933.  I would suggest contacting the Clerk of the Circuit Court and give them the info you have and ask how to obtain a copy of the naturalization papers. It is possible the records have been transferred to the National Archives in Chicago.

in a search of the Ancestry card catalog. It says in the description it came from JewishGen. My family's town in Galicia, Bukaczowce, is not listed. I am wondering if it is considered part of one the cities listed in the red oval of the attached image. How would I figure out what is meant by city in this database? Thanks in advance.

First - are you sure you have the right town - there are two towns with similar names - the JG town page for the town you refer to has the warning:Not to be confused with Ladyzhinka, Kiev district, 14 miles S of Uman]
There are several revision lists for the other town in Uman district

The town you specify is in the Gaysin district in Vinnitsia / Poldolia.  

There are numerous revision lists and metric records for this area listed under Gaysinskiy county / Haisin district in Alex K's wikis.   If you use Chrome and go to his main wiki page at.
https://uk.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%84%D0%B2%D1%80%D0%B5%D0%B9%D1%81%D1%8C%D0%BA%D0%B5_%D0%BC%D1%96%D1%81%D1%82%D0%B5%D1%87%D0%BA%D0%BE#%D0%92%D1%96%D0%BD%D0%BD%D0%B8%D1%86%D1%8C%D0%BA%D0%B8%D0%B9_%D0%BF%D0%BE%D0%B2%D1%96%D1%82

go to the top and find the index and click on 7.4 it will take you to the area where you can browse through the records

there are two revision lists which have town details specifically mentioning Ladyzyn F. 226. Op. 80. Ref. 1173 on p1651; and F. 226. Op. 80. Ref. 1174 on page 785 and 1092

Are these the same person - follow-up #galicia #records

jpersons@...
 

Thanks to everyone who answered my previous post! I now have a follow-up question:

I know that men sometimes took the name "Chaim" after the death of their father, but did they ever do so after the death of a son/child? In the scenario I am researching, Kelman (the second child on the list) died prior to the birth of the third child, Henoch. If men did change their names after the death of a son/child could this explain the name difference?

Thanks again!

Re: 1858 Jubarkas Revision List #lithuania

Russ Maurer
 

Jeremy Lichtman's tip is good. Even better, LitvakSIG translated that tax list long ago and it has 25 ZUNDEL/ZUNDELOVICH entries (all males). It's all available on the ALD (www.litvaksig.org/search-ald) by searching surname starts with zund combined with any field contains kra i 49 1 4166.

There is also an additional revision list for Jurbarkas for 1864, 1868, and 1869 which has one relevant entry, for Ber Zundel, son of Meier, age 16.

I'm not sure about any 1858 RL. The Historical archive catalog lists a file (LVIA/1262/1/80) that is supposedly the 1858 for Taurage and Jurbarkas. We DO have an 1858 list for Taurage which may be that file (in which case there probably was no Jurbarkas), but I can't be sure because the reference in the translation just says LVIA. There are no ZUNDELs in the Taurage list. Unfortunately, the original images are not online. We'll look into it, but it will take some time.

Re: Adoption Lwow, Poland #dna #poland #galicia

Yehuda Berman
 

I think you mean records of Jewish conversion to Catholicism, not of conversion to Judaism. And if your grandfather adopted an orphaned Jewish child (for example, a baby orphaned in the wake of a pogrom) it is likely that it was unofficial and kept a secret, even from the child. I take it that your mother didn't have siblings with similar or different DNA that could indicate the likelihood..

Re: comparing two names מאניש and מזיש #names

Father's name would be pronounced Manish  on Joseph's stone.
Assuming the letter vav is an erroneously engraved nun on Samuel's stone, the pronunciation Manish would be the same.

I'm turning again to the wisdom of the group for help interpreting a father's name on headstones belonging (by some accounts) to two brothers.

One, belonging to my great-grandfather Joseph Schwartz (1866-1921) reads:
יוסף בר מאניש

The second belongs to Samuel Schwartz (1861-1952) reads:
שלמה בן מויש

On the simplest level, I'm hoping the group can help make sense of these inscriptions.  I've searched all of the sources about Hebrew given names I could identify andI haven't been able to link either father's name to a Hebrew name I recognize (Maneesh?  Moish, not Moshe?).  But, on the other hand, both versions starting with a Mem doesn't rule out it being Emanuel (or does it?)   If you can point me to a source for these names, that would get me passed the first hurdle.

On a deeper level, I'm trying to figure out whether there is anything here that suggests (even slightly) that these two had the same father?  Could one be a typo?  A poor rendering of a badly remembered Hebrew name?

This isn't a random question.  For years, I've seen other trees which link my great-grandfather Joseph Schwartz (for whom I have no earlier family information) to the Schwartzstein family: father Emanuel Schwartzstein and his son Samuel (and Joseph's putative brother).  However, after years of looking, I've never managed to find any documentation showing a connection between Joseph and either Samuel or Emanuel.  I've tried to reach out to the owners of the Schwartzstein trees but they haven't responded to questions about what documentation they had.  Then, last month, MyHeritage matched me to three of Samuel's descendants via DNA , raising the stakes. But still, I'd like more evidence that Emanuel is indeed Joseph's father or that this Samuel (and not one of the many others) is Joseph's brother.  MH's "Theory of Family Relativity" shows a path from me through these other trees to each of these matches.  But I don't trust the trees.  

As luck would have it, I managed to get a photo of Joseph's gravestone last week and hit on the idea of comparing the inscriptions.  I traced a FindAGrave record linked from one of the Schwartzstein trees to a photo of Samuel Schwartz's grave (see attached).  As is so often the case, I'm just more confused.  I acknowledge all of the usual sources of uncertainties.  There is no hard-and-fast rule for converting old-world names into American and I don't trust entries in other trees without supporting documentation.  But then there is the DNA ... and I can't ignore that I have three matches to Samuel's descendants.... so, I feel I need to pursue every and any angle I can.

Thank you in advance for any help or pointers you can suggest.

"How common is the surname Kremer in that area?"

Although Kremet may not be common in the area, Kramer is very common (I don't know about that specific area), and since the clerks that wrote our civil records and other things - as well as immigrants - didn't spell consistently, you have to consider all possible spellings of whatever you look for.

My Ruslander family was Rüslander, Russlander, Rüsslender, and Rüssänder as well. And there weren't many records of them in Russia.

My second rule of genealogy, when I taught it, was that spelling doesn't count.

Munish is a Yiddish name, usually a nickname for Menachem, Emanuel could very possibly be the legal name for Menachem. 

About the discrepancy of the the 2 tombstones, I believe that the second has a typo, and would say it was supposed to be Munish, while it's missing the first vowel which is very common, the נ (Nun) was replaced with a ו (Vav) which is somewhat  similar looking.

Re: Finding Out You Lost Your Citizenship #events

Marian
 

Hello Carl,

I think this family story is plausible.  She was born a US citizen and would have been aware that the 1920 election was the first in which women would be allowed to vote in a Federal election.  If she tried to register to vote she would have been rejected as an alien and ineligible to vote.

I would probably be searching newspapers which should have carried stories of women in a similar situation.  The more evidence you have that women discovering their citizenship status was "a thing" ca. 1920, the more plausible the story becomes.

Looking for Linder and Spiwak from Poland and UK #poland #unitedkingdom

I am looking for any descendants of families LINDNER and SPIWAK . All originally from Poland, and some found in Buones Aires, Belgium and England.

- Any descendants of Ingram Joseph LINDNER  - Poland

- Any descendants of Henry  (Jechezkiel) SPIWAK  - Poland

-  Whether John LINDNER in London was in fact originally Jacob LINDNER.

- And finally a  "master LINDNER" in London who was born in 1915 and had a Bar Mitzvah in 1928.

   There were apparently people in the family who moved to Cambridge, one of whom may have been called Murray LINDNER

 

Hopefully someone can help me find these descendants.
