==Lipman (also Liebman) is a common kinnuy for the Hebrew name YomTov
(e.g. the 16th-17th century author of the commentary "Tosfot YomTov, whose
full name was YomTov Lipman Heller Halevy). According to Kaganoff, the
name is also associated with the Biblical name Eliezer, via the name
"Gottlieb."

Re: The given name Lipman #general

Dear Genners,
My contribution on the name Lipman is far less erudite than some I've read
in the past several days. As a matter of a historical curiosity, the first
recorded use of the name Lipman in the United States I am aware of, is
that of Lipman Pike, a Jew and the first professional baseball player in
America. His full name was Lipman Emanuel Pike, and he was born May 25,
1845, in New York City. He died in Brooklyn, Oct. 10, 1893.
Pike, one of two baseball playing brothers, began his professional career
in 1866, according to the "Jewish Baseball Hall of Fame," written by Erwin
Lynn. Lynn does not say where Pike turned professional or for what team.
However, it is well-documented that organized baseball teams toured the
country between the end of the Civil War and the formation of the embryonic
National League in 1876.
It is likely Pike, a good hitting second baseman, was asked to play by the
local club when they were challenged by the barnstormers and he asked for
money to make up for the lost pay he would have endured taking a day off
from work. But that is speculation.
What is known positively, other than Lynn's statement, is that Pike played
professional baseball with St. Louis in the National League in 1876, moved
over to Cincinnati the following year, and Providence, two years later. In
1881 he played five games with Worcester (Mass) and then the New York team
in the old American Association.
He also managed professionally in the years 1871, 1874, and 1877.

Grandma, Pepi RENNERT, was born in NY in 1893, but three years
later(1996), her mother, Keile RENNERT traveled to Europe to
deliver her second child, as she said that she didn't like the NYC
doctors. Would she have had a passport? If so, how could I access
it? This might be able to give me the town in Austria that they were

Translation and location help needed please #general

GojuMom@...
 

Please, I need some help: I was doing a search on Google and typed in my
grandmother's maiden name, ALTKRUG. Previously, we thought the name might
be >from northeastern Poland or over the border in Prussia. I found a
politician's webpage (translated it on Babelfish) and found he was born
"in Altkrug (Kreis Gumbinnen/Ostpreussen)". Can anyone identify
Kreis Gumbinnen/Ostpreussen and tell me where it might be?

Thanks,

PINCUS Family from New York #general

Len Pincus <lennyp@...>
 

Hi all,
Having exhausted almost all other sources I am turning to this
forum in hopes of finding a lost branch of my family. Barny (Beryl)
PINCUS was one of my GF's brothers. He was the only one who came to the US
in about 1906. He married a lady named Minnie FUDEM and had the following
six children (Born in NYC) Israel, 1906 - - - Willie, 1907 - - -
Henrietta, 1910 - - - Abe, 1914 - - - Pearl, 1916 - - - Johnny, 1919
They were all living on Osborn Street in the Brownsville section of
Brooklyn in the 1920 Census.
I vaguely remember some of them when I grew up in Brooklyn but
they have all faded into the vast genealogical wasteland of lost
relatives. If there is someone out there who can connect to these people
please get in touch with me. Thanks.

In NY State adoption records are sealed, and you need a lawyer and a
very good reason (like needing a kidney or bone marrow) to unseal them.
However local adoption records, for Buffalo in some years, are available
in a notebook in the public library, somehow.
So, try less official sources. Try the NY City Public Library. Try the
Jewish Federation, for that matter.

The source that Ms. Bruckheimer refers to for Buffalo is the probably the
following self-published book:

Jewitt, Allen E.
Adoption's [sic] recorded in Erie County Hall, Buffalo [1874-1900]
Hamburg, NY : Allen E. Jewitt, c1984

If Erie County Hall has adoption records >from the 19th century, perhaps
other county clerks in NY state do as well.
