Public documents on father #general

Jania Sommers <jsommers@...>
 

Dear JewishGen,

I have my father's name change court Order (in the Bronx NY) >from 1920,
his divorce decree >from a New Jersey court in 1946 and his death
certificate >from 1955 (>from Manhattan NY). I also have a photocopy of a
census card >from 1920 with bare bones info >from when he lived in Trenton
NJ. I also have a copy of his registration with the NY state optometry
board notifying them of his 1920 name change. That board had no other info
on him.

What other documents might I likely find that would help me piece together
his story? Citizenship? Voter registration? I am pretty sure he voted. What
else?

I am finally ready to tackle the document bureaucracy and could use some
advice.

Thank you.

Ancestral surnames and towns #ukraine

The Mouallems <mouallem@...>
 

My main research at this time involves my paternal side. My paternal
great grandfather, Rachmiel Lukashevsky was >from Kiyev (I do not know
which shtetl) and travelled through Odessa, Bucharest (Romania) and then
Greece where he bought passage to the U.S on the S.S. Constantinople.
According to the paperwork I have found, he arrived in the U.S. in 1923
with his wife Rosa and children: Leo, Philip, Samuel (my grandfather),
Alexsander (Sasha), Celia and Sylvia (Sarah) they settled in the Bronx
shortly thereafter. I am still searching for the origins of my
Schleifer ancestors however. It appears this surname is germanic but my
great grandfather Sam Schleifer's naturalization papers indicate that he
was >from 'Russia', which is too vague to trace at the present time.

Cemetery in Baden bei Wien #general

You might try to contact Mr. Walter Pagler in Vienna, who's organization I
understand is looking after many Jewish cemeteries in Austria.Below isthe
full address.

AUSTRIA
Fax: 76 15 07
I actually wonder if Herr Pagler is still running this organisation. I
visited the Zentralfriedhof a month ago to check some family gravesites,
and there was no sign of the transportable/caravan that he is supposedly
based in at the Erste Tor (Gate # 1).

As a footnote, I did visit the office in the chapel at the Vierte Tor (4th
gate), which is the "new" Jewish area, and found who I supposed was a
member of the Chevra in an office. He was as suprised to see me as I was to
actually find him there. He spoke practically no English, but with my very
limited German I gave him the names I wanted to search for. He checked them
on a computer (very high-tech stuff!) but did not find them, and simply
shrugged his shoulders; he didn't seem really to care one way or another.
Pity.

As a second footnote, the area at the first gate is slowly being cleared of
the many years of accumulated grass and overgrowth. It is better than when
I was there in 1996; one can actually walk right through the rows of stones
without being up to your ears in nettles.

Kherson Guberniya, questions and unusual names. #ukraine

Sarah L.M. Christiansen <sarah.christiansen2@...>
 

Dear fellow Ukraine SIG,
I too was inondated with e-mail and just reset my mail to digest.
I have four families >from on my father's side that originated in the
Ukraine, and welcome any connections with any of them.
My paternal gggf was Joseph PERCHIK and he was >from the Odessa area. His
son my ggf was Fischel MEYER (note the name change- due to avoiding Czarist
conscription, who bought papers and then came to the US in 1884, using the
name MEYER). Perhaps because of the name change, Fishel and his wife
Rebecca daughter of Samuel HITE (KHAIT) never became citizens and they are
not included in the 1900 or 1910 census (although my gf was born in Albany
NY in 1894). I have some KHAIT and PERCHIK records >from Odessa, but none of
the names match yet. Fischel had two sisters at least, Hannah and Breindl,
and Rebecca also had a sister Hannah. Hannah and Breindl married and lived
in New York. But I don't have their husbands names, just some mysterious
names and addresses >from NY circa 1950.
My paternal grandmother was the daughter of a widow and a widower. The
widow was Fayge BIRGARDOVSKY whose first marriage was to Zev Wolf MAGRUTSKY.
Her second marriage was to Feivel EDELBERG. Feivel was one of seven children
of Itsel EDELBERG, who was probably born in Courland, and who floated down
the Dnieper river with other Jews >from Courland about the mid 1840's and
settled Kolonie L'vova, Kherson Guberniya (not far >from Kherson) at the
confluence of the Dnieper, Kozacs and Redische Rivers. (See the Shtetl
information on Jewishgen). Feivel's siblings included Elijah (whose family
went to Buenos Aires) and I have a lot of holes here;Chaiah (and I have no
information here) Judith (Eudice) who married Motel KART, Bassa, who married
Jack SCHLAMOVITCH, Chaim who married Luba LEVENSTEIN, and Pesach who married
Lena BAGOON. Feivel's children include two that remainded in Russia:
Follick who had two sons Haim and Jacob, one of whom was to have been an
airline pilot in Russia and Itsel, who had a daughter who was an MD and
married a count and lived in St. Petersburg. I understand that she had
children and grandchildren in the 1950's but unfortunately, I do not have
her married name, just EDELBERG. Two of Feivel's children went to
Argentina: Fayge who married Zale ARONSON went to Rosario and I am still
searching for any information that I can get about that family, and Solomon
who went to Sante Fe. The rest of his (surviving)children Hinda (m. Motel
BAUM), Shimon who married Hessie BYCHKOV (>from Kaxobka, Kherson Guberniya,
Ukraine) and my grandmother Tillie all came to the US. All of the children
other than Tillie, were >from his first wife Itka (maiden name unknown).
Feivel and Fayge also had a son Shmilik, who did not survive.
I do not know where Fayge and her first husband came from. Their children
who immigrated reported that they were born in Odessa, but although the time
was right, no copies of any records with the names BIRGARDOVSKY or MAGRUTSKY
were in the Odessa city archives for the appropriate dates. This leads me
to believe that they were >from somewhere in the Kherson guberniya, perhaps
closer to Kolonie L'vovo than Odessa is.
Thank you for reading this and please get in touch with me if anything
sounds familiar.
To the best of my knowledge all of the families are Israel (ie no
Cohenim or Levi'im).

Haskell Harelik -- "The Immigrant" #general

Al Wirtzbaum <nycityal@...>
 

In a message dated April 20, 1995, Glenn Garelik talks about the
etymology of his last name and its variants. He also mentions
various people in the U.S. whose surname is one or the other
spelling of the name. Two people he mentions thusly: "... Mark
Harelick, a Los Angeles actor and the author of a play about his
immigrant grandfather, Haskel (Khatskeleh) Garelik, who landed at
the port of Galveston, Texas, in (as I recall) 1906. That family
(e.g. author Mark's father) still live in the small town of
Hamilton, Texas, southwest of Dallas/Ft. Worth, in which Haskel,
the immigrant of the play's title, ultimately settled and
established the dry-goods store." I noticed in The Sunday Daily
News yesterday that the play mentioned above, titled "The
Immigrant," is now playing Off-Broadway in New York City at the
CAP21 Theater, 15 West 28th Street. (P.S. I used in the Subject
line the spelling of the names as used in the newspaper.)

Re: Crypto-Jews -- New Mexico #general

The only difference is that in 16th and 17th century New Spain, not just
anyone was using these symbols. I doubt that those high-bred "Cristianos
viejos" who could claim pure blood, were putting symbols of Judaism up on
their churches and other communal places. I have seen these symbols in
the southwest and they are, curiously, not ostentacious like those
mentioned here. I have too seen the Magen David on St. Francis' church in
Assisi, in which it is very noticeable. However, in the southwest it is
often subtle, scrawled on the side of the church or in small letters in
the overhead entrance, or on tombstones. 16th and 17th century Spaniards
were not educated enough in the signs of subtle Judaism, they cried out
for not eating pork or resting on the Sabbath. Since Jewish culture was
extinguished and hush-hush in this era, as I said earlier, not just anyone
was putting "Adonai" on their churches.
