Can someone explain why my husband's family are of the generic tribe,
Yisrael, rather than of Levite extraction as we have found most Epsteins
invariably are?

GUNST #general

Martha Lev-Zion <martha@...>
 

Someone posted a message and asked about the name GUNST. I tried to
reply but the address was completely unacceptable to my email program.
The address posted was:
"Gunst" <boudewijn.gunst@pandora.be@telenet-ops.be>

If this person wants information, I suggest sending me a personal
message with a correct email address.

Temporarily unsubscribing #general

Roberta Sheps <roberta_l_sheps@...>
 

This is just to let people know that I'm going into hospital next week
and will be out of commission for about a month. (big, but not grave,
op- pardon the pun) So I've unsubscribed for the time being, but if
anyone wants to get in touch with me directly, they can write to me at

roberta_l_sheps@tesco.net

and my husband can read messages and pass them on.

To avoid confusion, in the address above, the middle symbol is a lower
case "L", not the number one.

See you all in a while.

Finding grandmother's maiden name #general

ethel <ethel@...>
 

My grandmother, Ethel KENZES or KENCZES arrived in Philadelphia with her
four children in 1928. She joined her husband, Fraun Kenzes (changed to
KANSAS) who had emigrated in 1914. They were >from the Mohiliv Podelsky and
Zmerinka area and also lived in a village called Lika or Laka. How might I
find her maiden name? My father has passed away and my mother thinks it
might have been MOSCOWITZ, but she's not really certain. I am seeking
information about my father's sister, Goldi, who returned to the Ukraine
in 1928 or 29 , married a cousin, and most likely perished during the
War. Tried Yad Vashem, the International Red Cross, and Bureau of Missing
Persons. No luck. Would appreciate any advice.

I would appreciate if someone might offer clarification of the names listed
below. The names are >from certificates I recently received >from the Polish
Archives.
Do the portions of the names Abramovna Nestempov relate to the husband Moshek
or the spouse Shandosh? Would the ovna at the end of Abram mean that
Shandosh's grandfather was named Abraham Nestempov?

Cert #5

, bachelor eighteen year old , born in village Katcic of Pultusk Diocese
region and living with parents Abram and Sheina Kotciolek and Sprintza
Nestempover, maiden twenty three year old, living in town Pultusk with
parents born to husband and wife, Moshek and Shandosh Abramovna Nestempov

---
On this certificate, would the name Germanovich mean that the Karashov's were
from Germany? In addition, what does Sheina-Eli born Abramovitch mean?
Cert #27

RE; WARTENBERG/VARTENBERG #general

HICKSBnz@...
 

Hello, I am trying to trace our family tree. My grandfather came to America
in 1913 He left his hometown in Hungary, traveled to Germany where he left
aboard the SSMain (left the port in Bremen Germany on Aug 13.1913 arrived in
port in Baltimore, Maryland. abt Aug 18.1913) >from there he went to Chicago,
Ill. His wife Frieda BERNATH joined him at a different time. I have a copy of
his petition for Naturalization, his ship boarding pass, his naturalization
papers they list his name as Farkas Vartenberg. upon naturalization his name
was changed to Frank WARTENBERG. He settled on the South side of Chicago,
Ill. he was a shoemaker, he had a shoerepair shop on 79th St. Essex. After my
grandmother passed away in 1953 he came to live with his oldest daughter
Dorothy and her family at 78th and Exchange.. there was a Synagogue on the
street behind that this is were he went to services. I do not know if it is
still there. If it is would the Rabbi have records of the people who attended
there? or if it is not there what would have happened to the records? I am
trying to find out what my grandfathers parents names were. Frank was born in
Hungary, the papers are hard to read but it looks something like Bergo
Besateroge,Hungary on Jan 1.1887 His mother was killed when he was young and
his father remarried.. He did not get along with his stepmother so he left
home when he was 12 abt 1891 He had a sister named Eva/Ava Wartenberg who
married a Joe/Joesph DEUTCH/DEUTSCH they came to America and settled in
Chicago also. They had a cleaning shop if anyone has any information that
may help me trace my Great-grandparents I would be most grateful.
Thank you
