Just found a paper >from my late father, Jack NOUGET. It reads "My birth
certificat reads Jacob NOGAZ,Father Solomon age34, Mother Millie age 33
residing at Rockaway Ave, Brooklyn,NY. >from the time of my birth till I
went to school the name NOGAZ was listed as NOGATZ.On Oct. 11, 1928 my
father had the last name for himself and all the children changed from
NOGATZ TO NOUGET legally." In Europe, the family in Switzerland and
France spell the names NOGATSCH AND NOGATCH.

COHEN (Percy, Reginald Percy, Hermon Percy Ainley) in Reading #general

Andrew Tatham <andrew@...>
 

Hi

I'm researching a group photograph >from the First World War. One of the men
pictured was Harold COHEN and so far not been able to find any of his
relatives. I have a reasonable amount of background but I do not know what
became of his father Percy Cohen, his brother Reginald Percy Cohen, and his
nephew Hermon Percy Ainley Cohen. I would be grateful of any help or
suggestions.

Here is an outline of what I do know about his family:

Harold Cohen was born on 25th April 1895 at his parents' home: 349, Oxford
Road, Reading (there is some confusion over his actual year of birth - his
birth certificate says 1896, but there is mention of a clerical error, and
the various mentions in his army records and grave registration point to
1895). His father, Percy Cohen, was a Commission Agent (his office in 1913
was at Market Place, Reading) and was also President of the Reading
Hebrew Congregation. His mother was Jessie Gertrude Cohen (nee NEWNHAM)
(died 31 March 1921 aged 54). Harold Cohen died on 18th July 1915, as the
result of blood poisoning and double pneumonia at Reading War Hospital (he
had been in training with the 8th Royal Berkshires). He was buried in
Golders Green Jewish Cemetery (I have visited his grave at Row 17, Grave No
26) - the officiating rabbi was Rev V Simmons. At the time of Harold's
death, his brother Reginald Percy Cohen was in Folkestone, and his brother
Arthur Lewin Cohen was serving in France. The last known address of his
father was Upper Redlands Rd, Reading (in 1924). His brother Reginald
Percy Cohen was born in 1890 and served in the Army Service Corps as a
Driver (his civilian trade was given as jeweller). He married Gladys
Evelyn TURNER in Reading on 18 Sep 1916 and they had a son Hermon Percy
Ainley Cohen (born in Reading on 11 Jul 1917) - war-time addresses were at
Oxford Road and 167 King's Road, and last known address of Reginald Percy
Cohen was at Rosslyn, Talfourd Avenue, Reading in 1934 (not at that address
after WW2). His brother Arthur Lewin Cohen died aged 73 on 14 July 1966 at
Battle Hospital Reading after having been hit by a car on 3 April 1966 (at
which time his home was Boundary Road, Newbury) - >from the Electoral Roll
and reports in the local papers at the time it would appear that Arthur
Lewin Cohen did not have any family living locally at the time of his death
(he had been employed by Mr Ben Warner of Donnington for many years and
later as a clerk by Mr George Rolls, the bookmaker).

None of the Cohens have turned up in the registers at the Probate Registry
nor in the Death Register Indexes (although I'll admit I still haven't
covered every date). I'm wondering whether they might have moved abroad.

To find out more about my history project, please have a look at my website
at http://www.mister-t.demon.co.uk/ , which includes a letter of
introduction >from Dr John Bourne, senior lecturer in Modern History at
Birmingham University at:
http://www.mister-t.demon.co.uk/pages/letintro.htm
There is also the text of a letter >from my great-grandfather, Colonel
(later Brigadier-General) William Crawford Walton, written three days into
the Battle of Loos at:
http://www.mister-t.demon.co.uk/pages/letbattl.htm

All suggestions gratefully received.

Dear Genners:

I am posting this for a friend. He last saw his father Zurach HUPERT in
1942 in Sosnowiec, Poland in Kelce guberna. Zurach Hupert was married to
Rajzla Malka. My friend has traveled all over the world hoping to find a
photograph of his father. If you think you can help to find a photo of
Zurach Hupert please e-mail me privately.

Jewish Community in St. John, New Brunswick #general

Leonard Markowitz <priluki@...>
 

I usually answer postings on this Digest privately, but this
response may be of more general interest.

The Jewish community of St. John dates back about 140
years. Many of the early Jewish residents were successful
cigar manufacturers. Between the 1920s-1960s, there
were as many as 300 Jewish families in St. John.
Unfortunately, as is the case with so many other communities,
young people tend to leave around the age of twenty. I believe
that there are only about 40 Jewish families left in St. John.

There is a St. John Jewish Historical Museum, which also
houses a Hebrew school, chapel, mikveh and a modest library.
The museum is staffed by Jewish teenage girls who give tours
of the facility. I also believe that there is a synagogue around
the corner >from the museum.

It may be possible that the museum can provide information
about current or former Jewish residents. If not, they could
probably suggest the pertinent facility in St. John for this
information.

Their address is as follows -
