Town Help! Steffensk, Romania #general

Shel Bercovich <sbercovich@...>
 

Hi all,

My gm's Canadian Naturalization Record and her Canadian Passport, both
issued some 37 years after her entry to Canada, state her town of
birth as "Steffensk, Romania". I'd always taken this to be the
Stefanesti, Romania located parallel with Dorohoi and on the
Romania/Moldava border, but the JGFF says that there was no
appreciable Jewish population in that town and won't accept my entry
of the name. My father was born in Dorohoi.

Can anyone suggest an alternative?

Orsanno, Austria? #general

Denise Azbill <famaz@...>
 

Hi Genners,

I recently found one of my ancestors on the Hamburg "link to your roots"
site. This person traveled in 1890 >from Hamburg to New York. The data
says his "state of residence" is Osterreich(Austria), and place of
residence says "Orsanno". I looked this up in shtetlseeker and on a
couple of map sites and could not find this town. Has anyone ever heard
of it, and what it is now?

Thank you very much!

Does anyone know what "roys" in Yiddish might be. I just found out that
my family name ROSE was originally something like it.
Roys means Rose (a roys by any other name:-)

You will need the soundex to go into the US National Archives microfilm
series M1461 which is the St Albans Index where you will find the 3x5 card
images previously mentioned. The card image contains much of the
information >from the passenger list, including a pointer to that exact
list. The card image also contains a number in the form xxx-yy-z which
points you to the volume(xxx), sheet(yy) and line number (z) of the exact
microfilm in series M1464 St Albans Passenger Lists for you to see the
passenger manifest.

The female name Hodes, or Hodas is a derivative of the Hebrew name Hadassah.

Re: given name Hodes(h) #general

Hodesh (or Chodesh) with a 'chet' in Hebrew, means 'month'. I think that
it is related to the word 'chadash', meaning 'new'.

Kodesh, with a kuf, is related to the word for Holiness.

If it is a female's name the origin could be Yehudit. Tevya's daughter was
named Hodl (pronounced Hudl in Ukrainian Yiddish) There is a surname Hodes
which is a matronymic.

It is my understanding that the "index cards" are the Soundex index to
the St. Albans records. Each card represents a "Passenger Manifest"
entry similar to that used for ships. I have recently requested a copy
of the Manifest >from one of the index cards; but, it has not yet arrived.

The immigrant records of those entering Canada are in the
Canadian Archives in Ottawa and the U.S. records of those who
crossed >from Canada are in the National Archives in Washington
with copies at different branches. I believe the N.Y.C branch of
the National Archives also has copies of those records on microfilm.
The records of those who crossed >from Canada where often kept on 3x5
cards and that is the format you will see them in when you review the
microfilm. The hand writing can be 'challenging'.
