Searching: MOSKOWITZ Family From Roumania #general

Stephen Turbin <sturbin@...>
 

Dear Jewish Genners,
We are looking for descendants of Dave Moskowitz (or variations of the
spelling, such as Muskowitz) who was born about 1888. Dave was the son
of Abraham Isaac Moskowitz and Tillie Jurist, and lived in New York. He
may have had two daughters. His sisters were Rebecca, Rose, Fannie and
Sadie.
Hoping for a lead.
Stephen and Judith Turbin

Common occupations in Hungarian #general

I need some help translating a profession handwritten on the Austro-
Hungarian census of 1869. All of my relatives list the same profession, but
I can't seem to get it correct enough to translate via the online
dictionary I found. The word appears to begin with the letters "foli-" with
an "h" or "k" next. Any suggestions >from someone more fluent in Hungarian?

For the 1910 census, the Philadelphia soundex films are a separate

Genealogy through Recipes #general

Aviva M Neeman
 

I agree with Carol Adler Zsolnay (at gmz262@nwu.edu) that family recipes
are a wonderful genealogical source and usually come with some kind of a
family story. A group of us has been collecting material for our ancestors
shtetle of Pikaleh (through Deena Berton), and among other collected
material we all gave out family recipes for the Pikaleh cookbook to be on
the shtetle site, since we believe it will represent the food they ate
there.

Incidentaly almost all family cooks asked for a copy of the stetle's recipe
book with all the traditional goodies.

Re: Liverpool Rooming House #general

My Great Aunt, Ida EDELMAN RAINER remembered staying at a Jewish Rooming
House in Liverpool on the way to being smuggled into the US via Canada.
The rooming house was run by a family named GOLDBERG. Mr. GOLDBERG was a
cook on a ship. He bribed the ship's doctor to allow my ggm and g-aunt
to allow them to board to Canada. My g-aunt also remembered that the
GOLDBERG's had a maid named Maggie. Would anyone have information of
Jewish run rooming houses as temporary shelter before heading to
America/Canada or the GOLDBERG's of Liverpool.
I don't have specific information, but rooming houses for transients
awaiting vessels for America were a substantial industry in Liverpool.
They were eventually subject to regulation and inspection because of the
abuses that took place in the early and mid-19th century.

In what era did your Great Aunt travel? Entering the US >from Canada was
not uncommon, and quite legal, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries,
when direct entry was sometimes more difficult. It was simply less
expensive for some to get to England and then sail >from Liverpool for
Canada than it was to travel directly to a US immigration port. Was your
Great Aunt young enough that she might have misinterpreted the 7-10 day
stay in Liverpool? It could well have been a legal ticket purchase that she
saw as an intrigue in a strange land.
