Re: ship records back to Europe from New York #usa

itencorinne@...
 

Hi  Lisa B       <n2dzine2@...>

Do you only have the record from the Hamburg Passenger lists or also the record of the arrival in New York?
On the Passenger Manifest of the arrival in New York, there must be a second page which contains useful information.
Did you search for his entries in the United States census lists? New York has some for 1910, 1915, 1920, 1925, 1930,
the other States for 1910, 1920, 1930. You can find all this records on familysearch.
As far as I know records for the travel back to Europe can only be found on ancestry, and only if he changed ship in Great Britain.

Regards,   Corinne Iten   <itencorinne@...>

Feige GLASS-Tel-Aviv -early 20th cent. #israel

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My father-in-Law, Rabbi Moshe (Morris) YERUSHALMY had a relative Feige
GLASS who lived on Shderot Chen during the mid 20th cent.. She was
also family with Dr. Yitzchak REFAEL (VERFEL) who was a minister in
several Israeli governments, representing the Mizrachi/Mafdal party.

We would like to review the exact relationship between the JERUSHALMY
and GLASS family.

TIA.

With regards to posting standards, I'd like to see more emphasis being placed on all family names (and nothing else) being written in all-capitals and making sure that every post is signed with at least a last name.  Ideally, the Moderator(s) would return-to-sender any posts that do not comply with these long-standing standards.

It would also be very helpful - to those of us scanning the daily digests - if anyone asking for a translation (whether via ViewMate or other means) of a document would please include the (known or presumed) family name linked with that document, so that most of us don't need to go to ViewMate to see if the document might be of personal interest.

Seeking info on ZALMAN family from Moinesti Romania #romania #usa

alexstuffbox@...
 

Hello- I am trying to get more information on my great-grandfather's family in Moinesti, Romania.
His name was JACOB ZALMAN.
He immigrated to Pittsburgh, PA sometime in the early 1900's & married my great-grandmother Sophie ABRAMOVITCH from Bucarest.
At some point he became a merchant seaman and there's a possibility he returned to Romania, but I am not certain as he left the family.

Any info on ZALMAN family specifically from Moinesti would be appreciated.   Thanks!

Seeking information on YUNOVITCH married KRAMEN Family from Volkavysk, Grodno, Russia (Belarus) #belarus #unitedkingdom

Hi All - I have been tracing my very large family originally from Volkavysk, Grodno, Belarus (then Russia).
I know my great grandfather's name was Dovid YUNOVITCH (family became Yanow) and his wife was Golde  KRAMEN.
I am especially looking for more info on the Kramen side.
Also, any information on the Yunovitch family in the UK as well, as I know a few of their older sons (my grandfather's brothers) went to England as well as a branch in Canada and then US.                    Much appreciation for any info or connections.   Thanks,

Well, now that all the groups have been merged into the main group, I would appreciate guidance on how to read the list, particularly on how to ignore or suppress hashtags that I am not interested in. With a single group, it wasn't so bad, but now the daily lists are considerably longer.

Hi Anne,

I found a 1937 marriage record for Erna.  She married Eitel Fritz HAMLET in Cape Town.

Erna HAMLET passed on Nov. 1978, and there is a probate record in Cape Province, SA.

5 passing away, 
6 Simon the eldest boy,( he who was born thr first to his parents)
7 with the G-d's help
8 among  the first ones in the old cemetery ...

10 history
11 choice
12 was buried in the new cemetery in Lodz
13 ... old...
14 died in 1932 in Lods, and was burried there in the new cemetery
15 ...may their name be blotted out! Damn them!
16 to 120 (years life)
17 the little dolly (Yiddish)
18 = 14
19 I would spell it Tsvi, The Hebrew letter is Tsadik, sounds like German Zimmer, in Yiddish 2-tswej
20  this looks like "of blessed memory"   the right letter with apostroph means God, it is the first letter of His name which is forbidden to tell. The left letters MAY BE  the word Yid - a Jew, but I cannot understand the connection...

Try the indices in the following link

The town was known to Jews as Tselim to avoid saying kreutz cross.

The records are available online on the Familysearch website.

My father grew up in a town now known as Deutschkreutz in Austria. Though the name is a German name everybody in the town speaks Hungarian. He told me that he had siblings (I know all 4), half siblings and step siblings (none of whom I know). The only thing I know about one of them is that he went to Australia and won a Bronze medal at the Olympics in California for Australia. Can anyone advise me where or how to look for those half- and step-siblings? I believe that I have exhausted all data banks that I know of but there must be others that I know nothing of. How does anyone look for documents without physically going to the towns and villages where they lived?

moderated Re: Ancestor with Several Different Given Names? in records from 1800s Hungary #hungary

Schonfeld.family@...
 

Jews used Hebrew or Yiddish given names. The secular names used in documents were sometimes connected (a translation), the first letter of the secular name had the same sound or were not connected.
I have similar issues of the sane person with several secular names in different documents.
In your case I guess the Jewish name was Wolf (or Ze'ev in Hebrew). Farkas is a wolf in Hungarian and Wilhelm has W like Wolf.
The name Jozsef is either not connected or he had 2 names.

Re: ship records back to Europe from New York #usa

Molly Staub
 

I had a similar situation with my paternal grandfather. he lived in Dumbraveni, Moldova, and sailed to New York from Liverpool to join family in Philadelphia. The family story is that he was mugged, had a steel plate inserted in his head, and had amnesia. He eventually returned home because he learned his father was dying, and he died in Dumbraveni. However, no one knew how long he had stayed in America. At our Jewish Genealogy of Palm Beach County meeting, we had a speaker from HIAS. For $35, he located my grandfather returning through England after 10 years, having changed his name from Einoch to Emil. You might be as lucky if you try that.

Most candelabras on gravestones seem to have two candleholders.  This one has four.  Many women have a tradition of lighting one candle per family member.  The following is just a guess, but this MAY mean that she had two children.

Re: KRIEGER FROM LITHUANIA #lithuania

@vshklyarnik
 

Do you have a Krieger passenger sheet when they first arrived in the US? My family is Krieger from Petersburg, but I try not to miss all Jewish speakers of this family name.
The names Harry and Morris are American names, they were definitely different at birth.
Harry’s name was often taken in America by Aron or Hirsch, but this is of course not necessary.
Morris could be Moses, Morduh, or even Mendel.
Did you find a family similar to yours at https://www.jewishgen.org/?  If so, pay attention to the grandparents indicated in the birth records or census family . Usually, children were given names in honor of deceased close relatives. For example, if you find a birth record for Esther, whose grandfather was named Morduch (or Moses, or Mendel), and Morris is Esther’s brother, then pay attention to this family.
I know of one family registered in Krakinawa, but living according to the 1897 census in Livengof, Dvinsky county. These are Meer (72 years old) and Hana Krieger (71 years old). Unfortunately, there is too little information from you to understand the relationship between Esther and the rest, their approximate age ...

Re: Help on serveral ukrainian ancesters #ukraine

Chuck Weinstein
 

Just to be clear, prior to 1991, there really was no practical difference between Russia and Ukraine.  Although Ukraine S. S. R. was nominally an independent country from 1919, it was completely controlled by Russia, who determined its boundaries.  Crimea was ceded by the Russian Soviets to Ukraine in 1954, but was reconquered and annexed by Russia in 2016.  Presently, there is no access to archives in Crimea.  It is considered by Russia to be a security zone.  The few records on line are all there are likely to be for some time.

Help identifying a Jewish Soldier from 1919 #latvia #lithuania

jack.gelman@...
 

Attached is a photo of my Grandfather. His name was Iossel Gernov. I believe it was taken around 1918-1919.
He was living in Riga, Latvia at the time, but originally was from Lithunaia.
Any information you can provide based on whether the uniform was Soviet or Latvian, the military division, rank or other relevant information would be appreciated.
I was told he died while in military service, so if there is a source for death records, or service records I would appreciate a link to those as well

Dear Sébastien,

I read your posting with big interest since I'm looking for my ancestors from Crimea. Even though none of the names are familiar to me, I have a comment. Why you say "ukrainian"? Crimea became a part of Ukraine in 1954; in 19th century it was a part of Russia.
