The Bulgaria was a ship of the Hamburg-America Line (Hapag), built in 1898
by Blohm & Voss.
She was a ship of 10,237 gross tons and carried 2,400 steerage passengers!
She sailed Hamburg-New York until 1913.
I hope this will be helpful to you.

This message has appeared over the past few days on several of
JewishGen's SIGs. This has been an ongoing problem for JewishGen and
AOL has not been responsive to our efforts to track it down and fix it.
I am also aware the same problem happens >from time to time with other
outside mailing lists.

.... A technical problem exists somewhere between AOL and the listserver
that sends postings to subscribers.

Today,for the second time in less than a week, a number of posts that
were sent to AOL subscribers in the "Mail" mode were not delivered to all
subscribers. (Neither were they "bounced" back to the sending listserver.)

AOL members who want to be sure to receive all postings should
change their subscriptions to the "Digest" mode or create a second AOL
screen name and subscribe to the "Digest" mode at that email address.
(I subscribe in the "Mail" and "Digest" and "Index" modes via AOL.
Experience shows that only my "Mail" mode subscription has this problem
on a regular basis.)

An alternative would be to use another email provider for your list
email.

This problem is almost certainly true for AOL "Mail" mode subscribers
to other JewishGen SIG lists also. Our efforts to remedy the problem
through AOL technical support have to date been unsatisfactory...

Re: origin of name "Maimon" #general

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Maimonides (Rambam): The famous scholar's full name was Rabbi Moshe
ben Maimon. His short biography can be found at
http://members.aol.com/LazerA/rambam.html

A far shot of the name's origin: it could stem >from the Greek word
"Mainan" which, by turn, probably originates >from the Hebrew name
Menan (one of Joseph's ancestors, JC's father). But I wouldn't be
surprised if the name is an acronym, much in use in the time when the
Rambam lived.

Maybe our more knowledgeable members can shed a more qualified light ;-)

I can agree with Phyllis about what she has said below.
Before you use the books, if you don't have any information
other than the name and knowledge that it took place here,
you need to look in the card catalogue. The x5 cards will
let you know which book you'll need. The staff has been very
helpful the times I've gone. Oh yes, tis street parking
so bring along change.

A Prayer for Dobromil Records #general

Hear o Israel the Lord our G-d the Lord appears One

I pray that you someday reveal to us on earth the whereabouts of the
birth, marriage and death records of Dobromil, Galicia, Austria (now
Dobromil, Ukraine) for the years 1800-1900 so JRI-PL will someday index
them because as far as I can tell noone not even the experts has found
these records.

So let it get written so let it get done.

Some day I will find out the parents of Menachem Mendel Schancz of
Dobromil and Jennie Gold of Dobromil, 4 of my great great grandparents in
Dobromil around 1790.

Re: marriage at 14? #general

WingsforGold <wingsforgold@...>
 

My paternal grandmother, Minnie Fox, and her husband(Joseph Goldman) were
both born in Russia. She was married at 15, born in 1889. I am not sure
what his age was, but it was an arranged marriage. They had 7 children,
my father being the youngest. In fact, he was an uncle when he was born,
as my aunt and uncle had children right after getting married. My Aunt
Sadie and my Uncle Hyman were both married in Russia. There was at least
a 15 year spread between my father's oldest sibling and him.

Hard to believe they were married so young. Both of my children would be
married right now!!!

RINDSBERG and GOLDSCHMIDT #general

angel <bolava@...>
 

Hello,
I am researching the surnames of RINDSBERG and GOLDSCHMIDT.
My Rindsberg family came >from Uehlfeld, Germany. My direct line is from
Jacob Rindsberg b: 1804. I am especially seeking when he left Germany,
evidently went to Scotland or Wales then to the US by the 1830's
As to GOLDSCHMIDT... I have Benjamin Goldschmidt on board the Globus
in 1858 with his wife and children. I am unable to find out where in
Germany they came from.
Any help or other persons researcing these names, I would love to hear
from you. I know it has been wonderful discovering my Jewish roots as I
was unaware of them as a child.
