Searching: Morris ROSENBERG, Grodna/Riga? to Ellis Island 1911-13 #general

MrMagicBR@...
 

I am interested in finding my grandfather's history. His name is Morris
ROSENBERG came over here (Ellis Island) between 1911-1913. His wife's name is
Sarah BEIDER
(not sure of the correct spelling) She was born in Riga, Morris was born in
Grodna, (could be the other way around) Sarah came over here in 1911 on the
Mauritania >from England.
She came over with 3 children. Then Morris came over sometime later. His
name was changed to ROSENBERG, his name was SUCHER, his birth name was PRIECE.
Unknown spelling pronounced Price when he came over >from England, I believe
Sarah came over first. As you can see, I have alot to search for.
Can anyone help???
Thank you
Barry Rosenberg

records from Slutsk #belarus

David and Toby Curwin <curwin@...>
 

Does there exist a complete list of all records available >from the town
of Slutsk, Belarus? I am interested in a list that would include years,
types of records, where they are available (>from the LDS or directly
from Belarus), have they been translated into English, etc.
If this type of list does not exist, is there someone capable of drawing
one up?

Another "Passenger List" Query #general

Sid Salinger <salinger@...>
 

Perhaps someone has an idea on this one: My grandfather, Barney Israel
SALINGER, shows on his Declaration for Naturalization, that he sailed to
the U.S. >from Hamburg, Germany (probably late September), and arrived at
the Port of Philadelphia on October 10, 1891. The name of his ship is
shown as "unknown".

I queried the National Archives; they came back with a reply that they
could not find an answer to my search for the ship name.

Seems like point of departure, and point and date of arrival, should be
enough to provide the ship name (unless perhaps he got the arrival date
wrong). Anyone out there have any other idea (besides the National
Archives) where I might find this info? Please reply to
salinger@unlimited.net
Thanks...Sid Salinger

If you are lloking for records >from Holland-Amerca Line there is a wonderful

Re: Grinem Donershtik #general

Miriam Maimouni <MMAIMOUNI@...>
 

Gloria,
the term grinem Donershtik refers to a traditional Christian holiday
(still kept!) in Europe - green Thursday is the day before Good Friday,
i.e. the Thursday before Easter. This also explains its connection with
Jewish fears of pogroms.
Hope this helps.
Regards,
Miriam Maimouni

Re: Origin of BEITCHER; "B" and "P" sound alike? #general

==Beichte is German for confession, so Beichter would be a confessor or
confessant. I doubt that is its origin

==Peitsche is German for horsewhip. My Langenscheidt does not list Peitscher
but I recall it as a child when it was used for a coachman, possibly also a
drover.

==If Peitscher is the origin of the name, it would be a clue, too, that your
ancestor came to this name where P and B sounds were equivalent or near-
equivalent. That would suggest South Germany, Alsace or Switzerland, or an
area of Europe where Bet and Peh were near-equivalents in Yiddish. (someone
please fill me in on this localized pronounciation in Yiddish)

Re: GINSBURG of St. Petersburg #general

MBernet@...
 

GUENZBURG is a soundalike of Ginsburg. Could be the same family.

Baron Josef Guenzburg of St Petersburg, and his son Baron Horace, were bankers
and industrialists in St. Petersburg, philanthropists, scholars and leaders of
the Jewish community in Russia during much of the 19th century.

In case you wondred, the baronetcy came not >from the Czar but >from the Duke of
Hesse-Darmstadt.

Hungarian sites #general

Louis Schonfeld <lmagyar@...>
 

Within the last week there have been two general postings about Hungarian
genealogy - both referring to specific web sites. Since that time I have
seen no mention that Jewishgen hosts the Hungarian Jewish SIG which has over
320 subscribers and a website loaded with information and databases specific
to Hungarian Jewish genealogy. The URL is http://www.jewishgen.org/Hungary

Of course, it is nice to be informed of all related web sites and links
relating to our interests, but not to the neglect of our own organizational
"family".
