Does anyone know any LEVINEs >from Winnipeg, Canada? My father just told me
that they were >from Israelovka, Ukraine--the same shtetl as my great-
grandmother, and were in touch just after the war.

MODERATOR'S NOTE: I recall working with someone by the name of LEVINE
whom I vaguely recall was >from Winnipeg. I knew him when he was in the
Thornhill (Toronto), Ontario area some 15 years ago. I will check and
post more if I find anything.

Jewishgen success story! #general

Ben Green <bcgreen@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners-
I am writing to share with you all a success story that would not
have been possible without JewishGen and, especially, the incredible
help of a subscriber named Naomi Fatouris.
Back in 1995, I posted a message asking if anyone had ever heard
of a man named Senia Solomonoff, who was supposedly a famous ballet
dancer in the 1920's, or of Senia's brother, who was a concert violinist
in South America. Senia and his brother were the sons of my
great-grandmother's sister, whose name I did not know. I got no
response, and gave up on ever finding any information about that branch
of my family tree. And when my second daughter was born in Nov. 1995, I
quit reading my JewishGen messages, for lack of time and energy. So,
when a man >from Kiev named Vitaly Kanevsky also wrote to JewishGen
looking for information on his great-uncle, Senia Solomonoff, I did not
notice it.
Naomi Fatouris, however, DID notice, and knew at once that Vitaly
Kanevsky and I had to be related to each other. (Up until that point, I
did not know that I had any living relatives in Russia, and Vitaly did
not know he had any in the US!) Naomi tried to reach me, but my e-mail
address had changed. She did not give up, and finally wrote to Susan
King, who tracked me down with a letter by snail-mail. I immediately
e-mailed Naomi, who put me in touch with my "new" cousin, Vitaly.
I just received e-mail >from him this morning, and have already
written him back. This is, by far, the biggest genealogical
"break-through" I've had in all my years of researching, and without
Naomi and JewishGen, it would have been completely impossible! As I
told Naomi, to find information on one's ancestors is thrilling enough,
but to find living, breathing relatives you didn't know you had is
really a miracle!
Thanks again to Naomi, Susan King, and to all JewishGen readers -
keep up the good work - anything is possible!

Re: Locating Ships Passenger Lists -- another question on topic #general

Cyril & Sandy Alberga <alberg1@...>
 

I, too, have had (am having?) a problem with Passenger Lists.

My Grandmother sailed to New York >from Port Antonio, Jamaica, on a
United Fruit Company ship. Family tradition says that it was the
Ethelred, arriving on Oct. 30, 1900. Additionally, I was always told
that they landed in Brooklyn, not at Ellis Island.

I have been unable to find any passenger lists corresponding to this, or
any other ships >from Jamaica to New York. Does anyone out there know if
such exist? I did find my Grandfather's ship, but that was >from Jamaica
to New Orleans, in 1882.

Searching: BENSMAN, Bronx/New Jersey #general

allen b. saxe <saxe@...>
 

I am trying to locate the family of Max BENSMAN. Max also may
have been known as Mosel or Michael.He was born in Lepel,Belarus on
April 20,1887 and died in July of 1967. His father was David BENSMAN. He
came to the United States in the early 1900's. He had four brothers
here;Yehuda,Joseph,Abe and William.These brothers all settled in
Sheboygan Wisconsin. Max (Mosel,Michael) married a woman named Beatrice
and lived in New Jersey and the Bronx. We think they had three children
David,Ida and Fanny. If anyone can help me locate this family or if a
descendant happens to read this please contact me privately.

Re: BRALOFF...... Was "BRAILOWSKY" #general

Shelle <shelle@...>
 

Additional note: The original last name was changed >from "BRAILOWSKY" to
"BRALOFF" - Change most possibly occuring sometime between 1910 and 1920.

Michelle Feigen wrote:

We're looking for any leftover BRALOFFS. Happily we've found some long lost
relatives recently and wonder if there are any others.

Many of the family had lived on Long Island and in the New York metropolitan
area.

Great grandfather Harris had been a grandfather clock maker in England
before emigrating to the states...... but his original nationality was
Russian.

We'd be most delighted to hear >from anyone who might have some news.
