Re: The Masculine Name "Eira" #general

Brandler Institute of Chasidic Thought <bict@...>
 

I have come across an "Iro" whose Hebrew name was Uri, the pronouncing of
his name did not differ much >from "Eira", it is possible that this "Eira"
chose to have his name pronounced in a slightly different matter, and it
very possibly too was Uri.
I have always found interesting that most of the "Ira's" I know of have
been "Yitzchok's" and not "Uri's" and though I have learned >from long
experience that Secular names nowadays often have no relation to the Hebrew
name, I wonder if others have found this to be the case as well. I suppose
that the hypothesis would be that Isaac becomes Ira....

Re: SS-5 Applications #general

E. Hunter <hushline@...>
 

I was wondering if anyone here can tell me the normal waiting period
before one can expect to receive copies of SS-5 Applications (requests
sent to the SSA -Baltimore Maryland).
I have had two experiences requesting the copies, and each time it took
six weeks.

New York City address #general

Ilya Zeldes <ilyaz@...>
 

May someone with an access to the NY City directories look up two addresses
in about 1908-1910?
1). In a passenger list of SS Lusitania, (arrived at port of NY on September
3, 1909), Chace (you may remember this name >from my previous message)
provided address of his sister Sophie at "c/o ???? 639 E. 12th Street, New
York, NY". May you, please, look and see what names are there listed at
this location?
2). In a passenger list of SS Caledonia, (arrived at port of NY on January
3, 1909), Borukh provided address of his brother "Buchman 85 Gryeb Str,
Brooklyn, NY". I looked on a contemporary AAA street map of NY, but there
is no Gryeb street. Again, may you, please, look in the street directory of
that time and see if there was in fact such a street and who is listed at
this address?
Any assistance with this request is appreciated.

Thanks: Palestinian Jewish genealogy.... #general

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

Thanks to everyone who offered input in response to my question regarding
Palestinian Arabs with Jewish ancestry. Most seem to identify this
phenomenon with cases of kidnappings, though I have heard myself of cases
of Jewish girls voluntarily marrying a Palestinian Arab, and hence having
Jewish descendants according to Halacha.....

Searching: Descendants of Lucille J. ROSS (Harvey Ross) #general

Crumper10 <crumper10@...>
 

Lucille J. ROSS was born in 1902 and died in August 1989 in Santa Monica,
California. She was my grandfather's half sister.

Her son is Harvey Ross and Lucille has grandchildren. In spite of the fact
that I have her death certificate, know where she is buried, spoke with the
cemetary, spoke with the Rabbi who conducted her funeral, spoke with the
funeral home who conducted her service, have the obituary, checked out
probate (which there is none), checked the post office for the last known
address of her son Harvey (which they do not have), have her social
security application, and have called every Harvey Ross in California, I
cannot locate her son Harvey or her grandchildren.

If Harvey is alive, he would probably be about 75-80 years old. Certainly,
her grandchildren are alive but I do not know their names (they were
mentioned in her obit but not by first or last name).

Does anyone out there have any more ideas as to how I can locate Harvey
Ross or Lucille's Grandchildren. Is there anyone out there >from Santa
Monica who may have known Lucille or her son Harvey??

Please contact me if you have any information.

Thanks.
