INTRO - researching BUCHOLD & SUSSMAN family from Muhlhausen, Berlin, & Leipzig, Ger. #germany

Jean Vehanen <dominique5513@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I've been researching genealogy for 8 years.
I consider myself to be intermediate in doing GermanJewish Genealogy research.
I live in suburban California USA. Native language is English; also know German.
I consider myself intermediate in using computer. My experience in using the
internet is extensive.

I have identified the names & birth/death dates of grandparents, great
grandparents & gr. gr. grandparents. My primary research goals now
are to find out what relatives are out there >from ancestors heritage.
My JGFF Researcher ID number is 645225.
The family names & ancestral towns that I've entered in the JGFF are:
BUCHOLD - Berlin, Ger. to New York in 1905.
SUSSMANN - Leipzig, Ger. 1750 - present
CAHN - Dessau, Ger. to Berlin 1850
HIRSCH - Dessau, Ger. 1778-present
MENDELSOHN - Jever, Ger. 1830 - present

An ancestor changed our patronym (SUSSMANN)to the name of a town on the
map (surname BUCHOLD) in 1810, so I am anxious to connect w/relatives of
SUSSMANN ancestors who did not change our patronym.

PILVISKIAI (Pilvishok) Fire Records #lithuania

Lindsay Sweetnam
 

Hello,


I am seeking any records of the fire in PILVISKIAI (PILVISHOK) in 1895.


On the kehilalinks page for PILVISKIAI
(http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/pilviskiai/pilviskiai1.html) the
last line of the Jewish Settlement Till After WWII section states:

Many names of Pilvishok Jews appear in a list of donors for Jewish
victims of fires in 1895. I believe this refers to a fire that
actually took place in 1887.

My Great Grandfather, Charles Abe Finkelstein (Yiddish name still
unknown) came >from PILVISKIAI according to his naturalization
paperwork. He left in 1900 and would have still been there at the time
of this fire. He is said to come >from a large family of 10-12
siblings, though he came to America alone. I know nothing about his
family. I am wondering if this information might help me place him
within a particular family.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Lindsay Sweetnam

Rearching Rudnitsky and Chaiter #ukraine

Jennifer Harris Taylor <jhtdakar08@...>
 

Dear UkraineSIG members,

I am researching the names Rudnitsky and
Chaiter which were the surnames of my father's maternal grandparents.
My great grandparents were >from what is now Ukraine (we think).

My great grandfather was Jacob (Jack) Rudnitsky, he was born 15 Dec
1876 but we aren't sure where. He had four brothers (Louis b. 1875,
Pinya/Pincus/Phillip b.1874, Moishe Aaron/Morris b. 1871, and
Herschel/Harry b. 1872) and a sister Mire Riwe (known as Mary, b.
1867).


Jack's brother Pinya/Pincus/Phillip had a son named Phil (in the US)
and he went by the last name Rudd. Some of his children were born in
towns that are now in Ukraine (Minsk, Kiev).

Jacob's wife's name was Esther Chaiter b. 1879. Her brother Joseph was
born in 1888, and his son Israel/Edward was born in Odessa in 1915.
Esther & Joseph's father's first name was Itzko and he lived in Tulchyn when
Joseph immigrated to the US in 1926 so the whole family may have lived
there.

I am looking for any information about the family members (known) or
my great grandparents other siblings and their parents, and where they
lived, what they did. If anyone has any information to share or ideas
on how/where I should search, please advise.


Thank you!

Best regards,

Jennifer Taylor

(Netherlands- Surinam) Portuguese Jewish Community of Amsterdam Surinam Archives Digitized-Online Access Free. #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The National Archives of The Netherlands in the Hague placed the Portuguese
Jewish Community of Amsterdam archives online for free a while ago. Now the
Dutch government and the National Archives of the Netherlands decided to
give the archives pertaining to Surinam back to Surinam. The decision was
made some time ago. However, as part of the agreement before they returned
the materials to Surinam, the archives were digitized. This constituted
196,449 scans. The languages are in Portuguese and Dutch. The website does
have the initial page as an option in English, but navigating the website is
challenging for those who don't take the time to read the key terms and
learn how to move around the website.

(Netherlands- Surinam) Portuguese Jewish Community of Amsterdam Surinam Archives Digitized-Online Access Free. #sephardic

The National Archives of The Netherlands in the Hague placed the Portuguese
Jewish Community of Amsterdam archives online for free a while ago. Now the
Dutch government and the National Archives of the Netherlands decided to
give the archives pertaining to Surinam back to Surinam. The decision was
made some time ago. However, as part of the agreement before they returned
the materials to Surinam, the archives were digitized. This constituted
196,449 scans. The languages are in Portuguese and Dutch. The website does
have the initial page as an option in English, but navigating the website is
challenging for those who don't take the time to read the key terms and
learn how to move around the website.
