SILVER, RODGERS and PROOPS of London, UK and Sydney, Australia #general

Harold <harmir@...>
 

Would be interested to hear >from anyone researching the names Silver,
Proops or Rodgers. The London Silvers had following given names: Meir,
Samuel, Michael (Myer), Sarah, Mary, Joseph, Solomon, Hannah, Henry,
Lewis, Isaac, Eleazer/Lazarus, Clara, Woolf and Morris. The Proops were
Solomon (Shlomo) and Priscilla. Known given names for Rodgers: Leah and
Lydia. The families lived in London >from around 1820 and were thought to
have had relations in Sydney, Australia. Isaac Silver and Leah Rodgers
were married in Sydney in 1870 and left for London after the birth of
their first child. Isaac Silver had at least 12 siblings, born 1829-1853
and all lived in London. Harold Lewin - Jerusalem


LENETTZSKY (France & Russia) to LENETT (USA) #general

ctf-genealogy@...
 

I finally found my cousin, Stuart LENETT and he told me that his father had
been educated in France and then returned to Russia. Around WWI, he escaped
to France to avoid the draft and eventually made his way to the USA. At
some point during all this, he changed his surname >from LENETTZSKY to
LENETT. Any connections?

The looting of my grandmother #general

Stephen G. Esrati <stevsta@...>
 

I will speak this evening (April 4) to the Cleveland Jewish Genealogical
Society about the way the Germans plundered the possessions of Jews,
showing the documents I obtained >from the Gestapo, the Finance Ministry
(a pack of thieves), her landlady (a real Ganif, who wanted rent for the
months after my grandmother was deported and even after she was
murdered), and the gas and electric companies.

I cannot show the documents on line, but I will be glad to make the talk
available to anyone who requests it. Please reply directly to me at
steve@esrati.com not at JewishGen.

FINK from Lithuania #general

Debra Forney <DForney@...>
 

My mother's family is >from Lithuania and settled in Cleveland. I have very
little information about my mother's family and am trying to put together a
family tree for my daughter.

My mother's name was Ruth Fink. She had a sister Lois and two brother's,
Irving and Harold. Ruth was born abt. 1922 (but I don't know if it was in
Cleveland).

The only other information that I have is that my grandfather (don't know
his name) was a jeweler. Can anyone out there help?

MODERATOR NOTE: The JewishGen Family Finder contains two entries
for FINK in Lithuania. If you would like more information, go to

age on naturalization #general

Merrill Paletz <mpaletz@...>
 

I got a naturalization for a friend and she is sure the ages of the
people (children at the time) are wrong. Is this common and why would
children be given the wrong age?

What was Really going on at 155 and 157 Rivington St.? #general

Steven Garber <shgarber@...>
 

Hello!

I'm interested in learning why so many of my relatives indicated that they
were joining other relatives at 155 Rivington Street on the Lower East
Side in NYC. The building dates >from 1902. Before that my relatives
listed 157 Rivington St. as a destination on their passenger ship
manifests. I haven't found any relatives living at either address on any
record other than those manifests.

Some were allegedly staying at 157 Rivington, "c/o Adolf Mandel". I don't
know who he was. I wonder if he may have been someone who loaned money to
or employed immigrants in a sweat shop.

My relatives were >from Vaskovitz, Bukovina, Austria (arr. 1898-1912), a
town aka Vashkivtsi, Ukraine. I only ask about these addresses because
another member of the JGS of Colorado also has seen this address in her
relatives' manifests. I'm guessing that these addresses featured clothing
factories. Streits Foods is located across the street at 154 Rivingtion,
but it wasn't there back in those days.

out if this person speaks or reads/writes English, has email access.

ELLMAN #general

David Wallace
 

Searching Ellman / Bromnick
I was adopted and only found my natural Jewish family five years ago.
My mothers family ( she died many years ago ) came >from the Kiev region of
Ukraine and went to Mile End London about 1880-1890.
My mother Minnie Ellman was born in 1913 and married Barnett Diamond
My mothers parents were Hyman Ellman and Annie Bromnick.
Are these common names in the Ukraine.
My mother had an affair with an American GI in England in 1944 while her
husband was a prisoner of war.
Are there records of American soldiers stationed in England at that time.
One last question,is there any books in English on Jews in the Ukraine in
the 1800's
Thankyou
