It was common for the man to arrive first, and then save the money to buy the tickets for his family to follow.

Pepi and Paulina were the same two people as Pepi and Paulina.   It was common for people to change their given names to something that (to them) sounded more Americanized.

Thanks, this is specifically a family from Lithuania and I'm only interested in Rabbi B B Atlas and his immediate family, so best to leave it for now.

But thanks for responding,

The ticket agents did NOT use USA directories. The ticket agents had staff fluent in the passengers languages.


SELIG Brick Wall #general

Fred Half
 

I have hit a brick wall with the spouse of Moyse SELIG, born at Thüngen, Bavaria in 1860 (based on other BMD records) and died 9 June 1829 at Thüngen, Bavaria. Her name was Hendla (aka Hannah, Anna, Anne) Abraham? and was born at Ingwiller, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France prior to 4 September 1782 or in 1773 based on BMD records of her sons Isaac and Segligmann SELIG. I have not found either her birth record or even where she died. As to death locations I have searched Ingwiller as well as any of the towns that I am aware of where her children lived (Rothbach, Joinville, Haguenau in France). Her son Seligmann died in Rothbach on 11 January 1861, and her son Isaac emigrated to the United States after 1853. I am hoping that someone might have these people in their family, knowledge of the B&D records in Thüngen (to verify the birth of Moyse SELIG), or any other ideas as to how and where to search. Please reply privately unless there is useful methodology for the entire group. Thanks in advance.

Re: Question on DNA and Cohenim #dna

If you are G haplogroup (your direct male line) you would be either a sub clade of G1 or G2. My brother is M377 which is G2b. They are not Cohenim. No-one in the G haplogroups have been found to be Cohnim. You may be related to Cohenim though a non- direct branch (e.g.mother's father's side or father's mother's father's side) but your direct line could not be Cohenim if you are from a G haplogroup.

I know very little about the family of Rabbi Atlas, and nothing to suggest he was related to a Benesch family.  His surname was Atlas. Also nothing to suggest he was related to a Kaplan family, but it was a relatively common surname in that part of the world.

My grandfather was Benjamin Benesch. His parents Israel and Jennie/Scheine Benesch immigrated to the US (Baltimore) from Lithuania around 1890. My Benesch great grand parents lived their lives out in Baltimore and my grandfather and his siblings grew up in Baltimore. I believe that there is a connection to a Kaplan family. Could this be part of the same family? I can give more details if it would be helpful. I've tried to get more information about my Grandfather Benjamin Benesch's family but it's been difficult. (the ship manifest on Jennie Benesch indicates she came from "Sidlowa" if that helps any. Thanks Allison Benesch

My name is דן (Genesis 30:6). No one in NYC was able to wrap their head
around the name.
If I wrote Dan - I was corrected to Daniel. If I said my name, it was
corrected to Donald.

But while in Boston, my name was pronounced correctly. All depends
on who writes out the manifest AND where the manifest is made out.

The myth that immigration officers intentionally changed the names of arriving immigrants keeps coming up like a bad dinner.  Because family lore says so doesn't make it fact. To be sure, the person entering the names into the ship manifest may have misspelled names, but that is entirely different from a deliberate attempt to change a name.  Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm guessing that misspellings may have happened when the ticket was purchased and was repeated on the manifest.  


Re: Translation please from Dutch #germany #translation

nick@...
 

Congratulations on a wonderful translation. I had not realised that the declaration was to enable the wedding of Rika OS to proceed. However, when I looked again at the Allgemeiner Polizei-Anzeiger, Vol 29, No 42, pages 221-2, [Coburg 24 Nov 1849] case # 10445 where it shows Levi Simon OS’ children, I noticed on p.222 an Esther OS aged 21 years who was married to a fatso [?] Philipp from France. But according to the magistrate of Winschoten, the latter is called Abraham Gumpel, aged about 43 years, and also a wandering rogue. Could she be the same as Rika OS?

The German publication also shows that Levi Simon OS had two brothers: Andreas Simon and Liaser Simon and that Rachel Lappemann was probably born in the region of Mittmund, but there is also a footnote that according to other reports, she came from Amsterdam and that her mother still lives there. She has several [9?] brothers and sisters.

This info may help Reuven and may fit in with the record of Juan Goudsmit.

Re: Question on DNA and Cohenim #dna

Adam Cherson
 

Dear Leonard,

In 2004 some geneticists wrote a paper in which they described Cohanic haplogroups. According to this work, the most prevalent haplogroup tree among Sephardic and Ashkenazic Cohanm is the J-P58 tree (31.8% and 51.6%, respectively). The next highest rates were 27.9% in the J-M172 tree and then 5.6% in the R-M269 tree. The G-M201 group represents about 3-4% of the Cohanim sampled in the study. There were about seven other haplogroups reported as having Cohanic members.

According to Biblical history, only the direct male heirs of Aharon the Priest are Cohanim (here is an article about the current state of y-chromosome research: https://www.academia.edu/43340967/) As you know, not every generation in every place produces male heirs and hence the emergence of other chromosomal Cohanic lines, as needed.

Cordially,
Adam Cherson

Yes. The family name was Werner. Lea Werner married Tobias Eisenhandler but all five children used the name Werner.
