Wedding Announcement errors.. question #general

Barry Yunes
 

Has anyone experienced information from a wedding announcement that is in error? I was just wondering if this happens to others at all? In the Boston Globe my Grandfather, Louis Yunes wedding announcement from 1908 stated that the best man was "Frank Yunes, one of the Groom's brothers". I was told he was an only child and this is the first I had heard of this. I believe he could be a first cousin but not a brother. Just wondering if anyone else had run into this with a wedding announcement? If I could trace the family name to a revision list from Boguslov, Russia/Lithuania then I might be able to resolve this, but so far no luck doing that either. Thanks for any help or responses.


Re: Researching meaning of surname from Ukraine #ukraine #names

Hi Denise,
this is something of a stretch, but my great-grandparents' surname was Meshurisman, they came from Balta, and had connections in Odessa and Kishinev.  My grandfather changed the surname to Mishuris, and I've seen the original surname spelled Meschurisman, Mishurisman, and many other variations.

Could Meschmar be a shortened form of Meschurisman?

I believe the original meaning of Meshurisman is something like "servant", perhaps someone's occupation.

Mishuris, Toberman, Polisar, Flickstein from Balta Ukraine; 
Lewak, Goldberg, Kier, Flaksman, Dwinsky from Drohiczyn, Kobrin and Chomsk in Belarus.
Winzelberg, Wertheim(er), Silberstein from Czchow, Poland; 
Lieberman, Finkelstein from 
Balbieriskis, Lithuania;

Pablo,  
I think it is important to know the meaning of these names... you probably know that.
If you look into A.Beider's Encyclopedia you find the surnames (this is how the names were pronounced.. not real spelling):
KHAMUDIS  was popular in Kishinev, Bendery, Akkerman and Taurida (Crimea)
KHAMUDES was popluar in Minsk and Soroki
KHOMUDIS was popular in Akkerman

and the surname LEBEDINSIKIY was popular in many places mostly what is now Ukraine.

All the best,
Shabbat Shalom,
Yefim Kogan

I'm not sure. I'm at the beginning of the story. We know that Harry was born in Lida (now Belorus) and that he emigrated with his parents Abraham/Avigdor and Frume (Rozenburg) to London as a boy. We have a picture of him aged say 5 at a primary school. After serving in the Jewish Legion he emigrated to Montreal where my father was born. He must have had brothers and sisters that he left behind in London. So it would be interesting to discuss further.

best regards

It would be helpful if you stated specifically what you are looking for.  Also, approximately when was your gf born?  What was the name of his father and his second wife?  Where might the family have lived?  The more information you can provide, the easier it will be to help.

Need Help Interpreting Ellis Island Manifest #records

MarkWeinberg18@...
 

I would appreciate help in interpreting the writing on my grandmother's Ellis Island manifest.   I am interested in lines 10 to 13, Gitel Malke WEINBERG and children Neche, Freida Taube, and Moshe.  
 
Questions:
- Columns 10,11 page 1; 20, page 2:  I believe that the town she was from, and where she was born, is Dobrzyn, Plock Gubernia.  Is this correct?  Unfortunately, there are two Dobrzyns in Plock: Golub-Dobrzyn and Dobrzyn nad Wisla.
- Column 11, page 1: What is her mother's name?  I believe the surname is GARTNER, but can't determine the first name at all.  This woman would be my great-grandmother.
- Column 18, page 2: What is the name of her husband?  I believe it says Itzig WEINBERG.  Is this true?  He would be my grandfather and I know that his name was Isaac/Yitzchak.  I also know that Itzig is Yiddish for that.
 
Thanks very much.

Rab: Ziff attested to the divorce Bann and that the record was in the Poviat court, located, I am assuming this to be a file number, 15.15[16]  i21.

Dear Nicholas,
I've done a good deal of research on the Jewish Legion/Royal Fusiliers.  I found your grandfather's listing in the British medal rolls and am attaching it.  If you'd like more information about the group just let me know. Happy to help.

My best,

Re: Genealogy Software For Family Trees #general

Brother's Keeper permits names in Hebrew.
I know Hebrew can be used in comments but have not tried
using Hebrew dates in the date field.

Hebrew in GED files can be loaded into Agelong Tree. I do
not use Agelong Tree to record information, only to
produce tree diagram and Hebrew prints fine.

If you want Hebrew windows as titles, pull-downs
names of reports, options, etc. BK does have a number
of other languages, but not Hebrew.

If you're in Israel, send me a note and I can speak with you by phone.

Hedwig, Sophie and Alice KASSEL in Uruguay #germany #latinamerica

oliverdmarshall@...
 

I am trying to trace Hedwig Kassel (née May) who was born in Osthofen, Worms, Germany (in, I imagine, the 1890s) and her daughters Sophie Kassel and Alice Kassel. I am fairly sure that they escaped to Uruguay in the late 1930s. I am especially interested in what became of the family in Uruguay.

Thank you!

Re: Record of immigration to Israel 1960 #records #israel #hungary

I suggest Ministry of Interior. They can supply a document
of your entry at least.

During this time, I suggest looking for an e-mail address
or call them by phone.

If you get nowhere with a phone call, try again. My experience
is that if the first person does not help,
the next one may.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #lithuania #ukraine #yizkorbooks

Bruce Drake
 

In 1827 Nicholas I issued a statute making Jews in Russia liable to personal army service and canceling their prior privilege of providing money ransom instead of conscripts. Conscription often was tied in with the payment of taxes. If a family was late in paying their taxes, a family member could be conscripted. Even after this occurred, they would still owe the full amount of taxes. Prior to 1827, Jews in Russia were forbidden to serve in the military.

Yizkor books are replete with accounts of Jews who left the country to avoid conscription and about those who remained and pursued all sorts of stratagems ranging from disguising their names to finding ways to get rejected for medical and physical reasons.One story in my family said my great-grandfather from Kovel deserted the army where he was a drummer and came to the U.S. Hard to confirm, but I did note that he was assessed a tax by the Kovel County recruit office for 300 rubles the very year he left for America in 1904.

I have previously published a few of these accounts about Jews and Russian conscription, but have come across some new ones worth sharing. One is “The Recruit” from the Yizkor book of Vishnevets (Ukraine) which said that two of different means of avoiding the army included chopping off a thumb or pulling out all of one’s teeth. “Military Conscription is Likan” from the Yizkor book of that Moldavan shtetl said that one of the saddest seasons of the year was Fall which, aside from the foul weather, included the “bitter addition” of the Russian conscription which followed the High Holidays.

Conscription was so dread that there was a saying — Gekrogn a krasne bilet—iz gevezn porkhe-nishmose — which meant “He got a red ticket (draft notice) …”he almost died of fright. Or more simply a way of saying “He got bad news.”
