Eileen Price <eileen.price@...>
 

I am interested in learning more about watercarriers who worked in Brest
Litovsk of in surrounding areas. I had heard >from my mother, about water
that was bought every morning >from someone who went door to door.

Any sources dealing with this subject would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

Beginning research, on Pessa MINSK #belarus

Udi Cain
 

She married my great-great grandfather Issac SMITH
(date unknown), and had several children, including my
great grandfather Max Smith (b. 1880, d. 1963). I
believe that either 1824 or 1880 is wrong, otherwise
Pessa would have had a child when she was 56yrs.

Adam Goldberg
Dear Adam.

In my family, I have a cousin of my grandfather, Feig'l (nee Gibor), who
married Isaac Welwel Scshmidt in Jerusalem in 1914. In 1915 they got French
passport in Alexandria, Egypt, and departed to S. Africa, where they change
their surname to Smith. Few more Smiths' married to that branch of my
family, all of Lithuanian origin.

Regards. Udi Cain. Jerusalem.

from some very faded and partially destroyed family
records, I have found a recording of the name of my
great-great grandmother as Pessa MINSK >from Minsk (b.
1824, d. 1917). Unfortunately, all of this data is
suspect:

She married my great-great grandfather Issac SMITH
(date unknown), and had several children, including my
great grandfather Max Smith (b. 1880, d. 1963). I
believe that either 1824 or 1880 is wrong, otherwise
Pessa would have had a child when she was 56yrs.

Anyhow, does anyone have any suggestions as to how to
track down her actual maiden name -- or, perhaps,
clues to what MINSK may be Americanized from?

Thank you for any assistance.

Adam Goldberg
Dear Adam.

I'm sure that you'll get good answers with regard to the name.
But with regard to the surname, I think that you should check further, to be
sure if it is originaly SMITH or maybe it was SCHMIDT originally and got
Anglicanism version later.

Best regards. Udi Cain.

BERKOWITZ; Yetta (Gutman): Benjamin. Louis. Ada (Guzman), Lillian #general

vzelvin@...
 

Searching for information on this BERKOWITZ family. They lived
in New York City area (possibly Brooklyn.) at the turn of the century.
This was my great-grandfather Louis Goodman's sister's family
They lived here at the turn of the century and came >from Suwalki.
Yetta's husband's name may have been BORKOWSKY.

Louis Berkowitz married briefly to his cousin Lenore Freedman, but the
marriage was annulled. They met at Aunt Lily and Uncle Sam Goldstein's
wedding and eloped. I was told that most of them retired to Florida where
they died. This information could be incorrect.

I would like to hear >from anyone who knows of this family.

Re VELONSKY and other names

I am researching the following family names:

VELONSKY and variants >from Jurbarkas , Raseiniai and West End of London
(Soho)
RAYMOND/RAYMAN Vilna and West End of London (Soho)
BLUMENTHAL Ozerkov, Kalisz and London
DIAMONDSTONE Dvinsk and Leeds
PHILLIPS Dvinsk, Los Angeles and San Francisco

I check JGFF on a regular basis and belong to a number of specialist groups
but a speculative posting here once a year often produces interesting
responses. I would very much like to hear >from anyone with an interest in
the above names. Please note I have recently changed my email address which
I have updated on JGFF.

Re: Andre CITROEN #general

BasGinger@...
 

Alexander and the others,

I will share information.
Citron, in French also, means lemon.
About the connotation: that is the reason why Andre CITROEN's grandfather,
in Holland, anticipating the future, changed his name >from LIMOENMAN to
CITROEN :-)

Basile Ginger,

I am curious to learn that there is an association between Jewish
Polish Citron and French automaker Citroen. Citron means " a Lemon"
in Yiddish.Is same apply to French meaning of "Citroen"?

You are probably aware that lemon and car (lemon car) have a special
connotation in the North American automobile market industry.


Re: Shraja #general

The question is about the given name Shraja-the only suggestion I have =
is about my 2nd great Aunt who was called that or Shrei Esther (not Chai =
Esther) ...because she yelled all the time.

Thanks to everyone for the responses. It seems like everyone is at a
consensus with her surname, which matches my thinking. The surname seems to
be Azernicki. Thanks for all the help!

New material on Woodbine, NJ at PJAC #general

JGLois@...
 

The latest edition of the newsletter of the Philadelphia Jewish
Archives Center contains information on new collections and material
on the Jewish agricultural community at Woodbine, NJ. They have
received the personal papers and records of Zelda Rabinowitz Merzanze,
whose family was among the early settlers of Woodbine. Mrs. Merzanze
carefully saved many records dealing with personal and community life
in Woodbine.

agricultural settlers, will preserve and contribute materials that might
be gathering dust in their basesments.
