Levine and Mosineck family in Los Angeles #general

SAA444 <saa444@...>
 

I am searching for the ancestors of Hyman and Mary LEVINE of Minsk,Russia.
Mary LEVINE, nee LASHINSKY moved to Los Angeles >from Minsk, to Cleveland, Ohio,
to Los Angeles around 1927. Her daughter Sophie LEVINE MOSINECK was already
living in Los Angeles. Other children of Hyman and Mary LEVINE were
Celia (died in 1931), Esther (died in 1917), Jacob (Jake), Boris and Wolfe.
Boris LEVINE lived in Chicago in 1931 and may have moved to Los Angeles. Jacob
LEVINE appears to also have lived in Los Angeles.

I would appreciate any help I could get >from people living in the Los Angeles
area who might have information. All contact was lost with this side of the
family after 1931.

Thank you.

Hi all!

This post is addressed to all you mayvens on Israeli Death certificates.

What information would be included on a death certificate >from Israel ca.
1950-1955? Would it include the mother's maiden name (or even her first
name) or only the father's name? Would it include the birthplace of the
deceased?

Thanks,

cemetery project #general

I have just uploaded all the new material that I had and any corrections
that were
given to me in the past few months. I have started a new format, which
hopefully
will make it easier for you to scan through the data and find what you want.
About
one quarter of the files have been done - mostly those that I had to make
some corrections or changes to.

Please keep on trying to get the names of those in a cemetery whereever you can.
If my message sounds cryptic to newer readers, check

In response to a query for info on Grand Street Boys, a quick check of the
NYPL on-line catalog <http://www.nypl.org> shows four books on the subject.

I would imagine other libraries may have these books, or possibly be availabe
for inter-library loan.

good luck in your search,

History of EPPSTEIN HA-LEVI, ROTEROSEN, MEVZOS Families #general

Haran C. Rashes <haran@...>
 

In 1955, my great-great uncle, Morris Rote-Rosen compiled a History of the
EPPSTEIN HA-LEVI, ROTEROSEN, MEVZOS Families with corresponding
genealogical charts. My mother recently made me additional copies of this
booklet that I now am willing to make available to people on
soc.genealogy.jewish with a legitimate interest in the families my uncle
researched. All I ask in return is the pertinent family genealogical
information as it contributes to completing Uncle Morris' work.

If you would like a copy, please send me a self addressed 8"x10" envelope
with $1.01 postage (it is 3.5 ounces). If you live outside the United
States, e-mail me and we can make other arrangements. Since I only have a
limited number of copies of the booklets, this offer may be limited if I
am overwhelmed with requests.

Families included: EPPSTEIN HA-LEVI, ROTEROSEN, MEVZOS, ROTE-ROSEN, ROSEN,
MEVZOS, STEINSAPIR, & RASHES. The families came >from the area around
Mariampole and quite a few settled in Rutland, Vermont.

Prior to Adoption of surnames - how to reasearch? #general

AbigtM
 

Seek information >from seasoned genealogists who can suggest next steps. I have
located the family of Abraham/Abram in Westfalen c. 1850. Those who remained
and did not emigrate to America in the 1840's, adopted the surname of
Lowenstein, Lowenberg and Lowenfels. The records of the village have listings
of the Jewish people who lived there back to the early 1700's. Naturally at
that time they were using patranymics for second names. I have found two
generations back after emigration; but it appears that the grandfather (b.c.
1742) was not born in the village of the records. It doesn't say >from where or
when he arrived.

What next? The Synagogue records are non-existent. They were lost probably in
1938. I have found a Yizkor Book for the village, but it doesn't give
information that helps.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. I am leaving for Germany in one week.
Thank you. Please reply direct.

Birth, Marriage, Death Info in NYC/Brooklyn Archives #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>
 

IF anyone is planning on traveling to the Archives for NYC and/or
Brooklyn, NY, I could use a little help there. I need information from
a marriage license application (Bronx - 1929), 2 birth certificates (I
have the cert.#s - both same last surname, both 1906), and a death
certificate (1938). I don't need to have the items themselves, I just
need the info found on them (birthplace, parents' names).

Please contact me privately at <rickiz@...>

perhaps Morris BASKIWYK? #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

Donald Brown asked:

MORRIS, Baskiwyk emigrated to USA in ?? ~ 1870's ??? or later ?
I found this name very intriguing because it seems to me to have become
somehow reversed. Morris (though sometimes a Jewish surname in
English-speaking countries today) looks more like a forename here, and
Baskiwyk (perhaps originally Baskiewyc?), pronounced Baskiewitz ,looks
more like a surname.

Note that the suffix (wyk) is typical of surnames (cf, similar endings:
-wyc, -witz, -vich, all connoting "son of"); this particular name
probably means "son of Basya" (Bashke being a Yiddish diminutive of
Basya). So, I am wondering whether thes name somehow got reversed in some
document or file and maybe you should be looking for a Morris BASKIWYK
rather than a Baskiwyk MORRIS?

Just a helpful suggestion!

Searching: Zalman; London 1830-40

I am looking for the origins of SARAH FRANKS of Spitalfields, London, UK.
The record of her marriage at the Synagogue, Duke's Place, London, 1833 says
she is 'SARA, daughter of SHLOMO ZALMAN' . Does the name ZALMAN help me to
trace where SARAH came from? Today the family believe they came >from
Russia but the 1851 census says SARAH was a British Subject, born in Germany.
Can any one tell me if the name ZALMAN points to Russian or German origins?
