Rosenberg and Weinreb #hungary #romania

Maria Rev
 

Hello,

Have you ever met the names of a couple named Emil Rosenberg and Helen Weinreb?

They may have come from perhaps Sarmasag (now Romania) area, lived in Nagyvarad/Oradea (now Romania) in Street Rulikowski.

Both of them were deported from there in 1944. I looked through all sorts of lists, their identities could not be found.

I am looking for any relatives, also any data concerning them, from the time before 1944.

Thank you very much!

A Latvian Chanukah Present - Day 8 #latvia

A LATVIAN CHANUKAH PRESENT - DAY 8

The Oldest Latvian Jew on Record

by Ann Rabinowitz 


In memory of my great uncle Max Hillman, who was born in Bauska, Latvia, and who started me on my genealogical research, which is so long ago now, I am posting a piece about Latvia every day throughout Chanukah. The posts will be about people, events, and daily life. These posts can also be viewed on the JewishGen Blog at: https://www.jewishgen.org/Blog/


There is often discussion of the life-spans of our ancestors.  Many times, it was short due to illness, lack of appropriate medical care, natural disasters, wars, and other such things.  However, I am delighted to announce that I may have found the oldest recorded Jew in Latvia due to my research into the Historical Jewish Press database.


In The Sentinel, Friday, July 11, 1913, Pg. 11, I found a tidbit noting the death of Chaim Moshkin in Daugavpils, Latvia, at the age of 127! Yes, that is correct, 127 years of age.  This would have made his birthdate in 1786.  Apparently, longevity ran in his family, as his mother left this earth at the age of 118.  Due to his long life, Chaim left 116 living descendants.


He said that he saw Napoleon at Minsk in 1812.  It makes one wonder what he was doing there then.  Had he been conscripted?  Was he there on business?


The information on Chaim’s age at the time of his death was confirmed in the Necrology section of The American Jewish Year Book, copyrighted in 1913, Page 343.  I was not able to find any further existing data that would corroborate the specifics of his life.  Perhaps the Latvian Archives has records which would be able to help in that regard.  


Unfortunately, I don’t have a photograph of this wonder of old age, but perhaps there are descendants who are still living, who can add to Chaim’s life story.  What did he do for a living?  How many wives and children did he have?  What did he die from other than the obvious one of old age?  


In addition, it would be interesting to learn if his tombstone still exists as it would provide the name of his father.

Re: Subj: birth certificate on ViewMate with strange/suspicious date in Norfolk, Virginia #usa

I asked Google  "When did Virginia start keeping birth records?"

Answer:
With the exception of the years 1896 to 1912, the Office of Vital Records has records of births, deaths, and marriages since 1853

I have posted a birth certificate from Norfolk, Virginia that shows the birth being in 1902, but the filing seems to be in 1918 (5/9/18). Did it take 16 years for the paperwork to be processed?. Also, the one signing in place of the doctor or midwife is the father. Anybody came across any similar situation? It is on ViewMate at the following address ...

I have been reading the various explanations about immigrants traveling
through Ireland. I am attaching an article I wrote for the Ft. Lauderdale
Sun-Sentinel several years back, after I interviewed a spokesperson in
Dublin. The ships did not come into Dublin, but to Cobh (County Cork). The
museum mentioned is now in a new location.

Hope this helps, Molly

From Lithuania to Brooklyn: Preserving a Family Collection & History    

Speaker: Diana Korzenik

Brooklyn native Dr. Diana Korzenik first conceived of her book, Lithuania to Brooklyn, The Rabbi Daniel and Minnie Shapiro Family, as a way to preserve and document her collection of her maternal grandparents’ family objects now in New York’s Yeshiva University Museum. In that process she uncovered facts about the treasures  and the pains  of her grandparents' and parents’ lives, revelations that signal a departure from her family’s years of silence about the Old World, so familiar to many immigrant families.

Dr. Korzenik will first detail the process she followed in learning how to preserve her family collection. Then she will describe surprises in the stages of her construction of the family narrative. She begins with the family in Lithuania, fleshing out her grandfather’s Lithuanian rabbinic education, then turns toward rabbis’ debates about pros and cons of leaving, and challenges of getting to America. Once on New York’s Lower East Side and then in early 20th-century Brooklyn, both Rabbi and Rebbetzin Shapiro significantly contribute to Brooklyn’s Orthodox Jewish education and social services amidst the diverse pressures of Americanization.

Bonni-Dara Michaels, Collections Curator, Yeshiva University Museum, will speak briefly about the Museum’s acquisition policy and Dr. Korzenik’s donation of the Shapiro Family Collection.

Dr. Diana Korzenik, a writer and artist with paintings in museums as well as private collections, is professor emerita at Massachusetts College of Art. Her two prize-winning books, Drawn to Art: A Nineteenth-Century American Dream (1985) and Objects of American Art Education: Highlights from the Diana Korzenik Collection (2004), were based on collections she amassed for research, collections now, respectively, at the American Antiquarian Society and the Huntington Library. In addition to the Shapiro Family Collection, she created three additional research collections now held at the New England Historical Genealogical Society and two other institutions.

All are welcome; attendance is free, but registration is required:

kosfiszer8@...
 

I need help with ancestors Williams that lived in Oneida county and also NY city, in NY. Some members are in the Acacia cemetery, Suwalki section in NY city. In particular, the Oneida county Williams' came to the USA around 1883-1885 being born in 1861-1864; Charles and Sophia/Sofia came as a couple and had 9 children, 6 of which survived by 1900. I can not find immigration and citizenship records to find out what may have been the family name in Europe as I suspect Williams was not originally their last name .

David,

Have you seen this 1908 passenger manifest for Lena WOLK from Petkuny?
You can see the full passenger manifest at:
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-C95R-Z978-2?i=211&cc=1368704&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AJXPG-FNP
Lena is going to her son in Worcester, Massachusetts, and she left behind a daughter in a town that looks like Pilbesok Smalska.

Regards,
