Simon TAYLOR family, Dublin '64 #general

D. Abrams <dabrams1@...>
 

I am hoping that someone out there might help me locate members of the
Simon TAYLOR family in Dublin. My last contact with this family was
in the fall of 1964, when I attended Rosh Hashanah services in their
synagogue. (Going to services abroad is usually a wonderful experience and
this was too although at the time I was initially disappointed to find the
rabbi was a transplanted Brooklynite!)

In addition to Mr. and Mrs. TAYLOR there were three lovely daughters in
their teens whose names I regret I cannot call to mind at the moment. The
oldest daughter stayed with me in NY when she visited the US some years
later, and then, as it often happens, we eventually lost touch with each other.

If you have any information about this family (or even the conservative (?)
synagogue with a rabbi >from Brooklyn) please contact me privately at:
dabrams1@optonline.net

Many thanks,
Dena Lowenkron Abrams

Actually, my mil came >from Pogost but I had heard only that she came
from Minsk. I gather by that that Pogost was a very tiny town and she
felt that everyone would ask where that town was - so instead she said
Minsk.

Where would I write for an internal passport -- or for other papers that
she/he needed--he was >from Disna---Since they were children at that
time, would the papers be instead in their parents names-- would I be
able to give their childrens names and where they were born instead
since I know nothing about their parents!

Help on name meanings #general

ESES@...
 

Hi,
First I would like to thank all of you that sent in suggestions on how to
deal with the young folk in exposing them to genealogy. I think I have a
clear path to follow now.

I have been trying to translate and determine the origins of their
surnames. I am not doing to bad. I have something to give them for 43 out
of 53 names.

I need help on the following surnames,
ACUNIS
ANTKIES
LEEPER
MARRERO
SPERGEL
TURKHIMER
SCHMUTTER
ZACKSTEIN

If there is some one out there that knows the Italian Language I would
need help on the surname VITAGLIANO

COOK - is one that I think was so Americanized that without further
information I could not venture a guess.

What would the SCHOEN be in the name SCHOENFELD be?

thanks

Re: GENESE Family Name #general

Steinhe@...
 

To David A. Reed,
Regarding you inquiry about the name Genese, it is among the 5000 Sephardic names that appear on Sephardim.com located at http://www.sephardim.com

The reference for the name is, "The Sephardim of England", by Hymanson.
As the name implies, the siting was in England.

Skalat deaths - early 1840's #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

Does anyone have any statistics on child deaths in the early 1840's in the
Skalat area?

We have nine PIKHOLZ child deaths in the period 1837-1845. (We
only have fathers' names for some, but so far none are >from the
same family.) Can we use that to guess how many PIKHOLZ
families would have lived there at the time? (We also have three
deaths of people in their sixties and seventies, but no one in
between.)

Belarus Archives #belarus

HBArkoff@...
 

I recently received some information on my father's family, Kharkovski,
from a researcher in Minsk that came >from the National Historical
Archive of the Republic of Belarus.

The material came >from
"Fund 2409 (Mogilievskoe everjskoe obschestvo- Mogilev Jewish Community)"
"Fund3362 (birth index of Mogilev Jewry)".

The researcher sent me the information but said that the Archive didn't
like to have the document itself photocopied at the present time but
might change its policy next year. Has anyone else had any exerience
with these Funds (Fonds?)? How extensive are they? They don't appear
to be material filmed by Family History Center or are they?

Any experience >from others here?

Searching SOCKEL Family from Solotwina #general

ddworski@...
 

Seeking SOCKEL family originally >from shtetl Solotwina in current-day
southwestern Ukraine (Ivano-Frankvs'k region). Menashe SOCKEL was born
circa 1850s. He married Maley SCHNEID and they had at least two children,
a daughter Chaje and a son Shaul Aron.

Chaje SOCKEL was born circa 1880. Family lore is that she was a beautiful
red-head blessed with a beautiful singing voice and good business acumen.
She apparently operated a successful yard-goods business in Solotwina.

Chaje married Chaim SCHIEBER and had three children Malke (Mollie), Ruchel
(Rose), and Itzhak Michel (Irving) between 1900-1905. Shortly thereafter,
Chaje died, possibly during a flu epidemic. Chaim quickly remarried and
the family eventually emigrated to the U.S.

Chaje's SOCKEL's brother, Shaul Aron, was born in the early 1880s. At
some point he migrated to the U.S. where he was known as Sam SOCKEL. His
wife was Rose. The couple did not have children. They lived in New York
City until their deaths in the mid-1960s. Both are buried in the First
Solotwiner S&B Society plot at Mt. Hebron Cemetery in NY.

I'd ge grateful for any information about the SOCKEL family.
