Oustra-Polia #general

Foodphile@...
 

My grandfather, Morris KELLNER, listed his place of birth as Oustra-Polia. I
think this must be Austria-Poland. May I have opinions on this please?
Thanks

GeneaNet Links/Odessa/Ontario Cemeteries #general

Allen Rabinowitz <allenrab@...>
 

Shalom Y'all!
Has anyone had any experience using GeneaNet to link to sites such as
Odessa, the German-Russia Genalogical Library? When I entered family
names into the database, many of the links took me to Odessa, and from
there I was lost.

In addition, I did find two burials in Ontario, one in the Jewish United
Cemetery, Gloucester Township, and one in the Jewish Cemeteries, City of
London. The former is for Annie (Bromberg) MAX, and the latter is for
Marcia Ellen MAX of Middlesex, London, Ontario. Does anyone know of
either of these two women? The database (Ottawa Genealogical Society)
did not list dates.

If anyone can help with either of these situations, please e-mail me
privately.

Thanks!

ABRAMSON/SCHERR from Lithuania>Cape Town>Baltimore #general

D. Abrams <dabrams1@...>
 

Searching for relatives of or information about Harry ABRAMSON and Sarah
SCHERR who married (possibly in Kovno gubernia) and had a son Meyer born in
1898. They emigrated to Cape Town where daughters Lena, Rose and Ceil were
born. In 1907 they emigrated again, this time to Baltimore where Harry had
a brother named Myer who was a saloonkeeper and where I believe Sarah also
had family. Their last child, Benjamin, was born in Baltimore in 1911.
The family remained there and Harry became a butcher. The family lived for
many years at 21 N. Bond St.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? Any info will be appreciated.

HYMAN, Chicago, --plus Sigmund ROTHSCHILD of Boston 1927 #general

Gabor Zsolnay <gmz262@...>
 

New Information about a recent post:

In the Monday September 7, 1998 Chicago Tribune, there is an article about
a kadish service held at one of Chicago's oldest cemeteries (established in
1851) for a family whose mausoleum was vandalized last Halloween. The
author of the article writes that the cemetery president doesn't know of
any living relatives to the family-- but perhaps someone on JewGen does!
Here is the information:

Buried in a mausoleum erected in 1928 at Hebrew Benevolent Cemetery on
North Clark St.--sometimes called Jewish Graceland-- (just north of Wrigley
Field) in Chicago are the following people:

Nathan HYMAN died Jan 13, 1927, age 83 (therefore born in 1843 or 44)
Simon HYMAN, died January 18, 1888, age 22 (therefore born ~1866)
Max HYMAN--no dates
Rachel HYMAN--no dates
Harry HYMAN--no dates

Records >from the cemetery >from before 1911 were destroyed by fire. Since a
mausoleum was erected after Nathan's death, it is guessed that there were
relatives of the HYMANs still in Chicago to move the family burials together.


I looked up the obituary of Nathan HYMAN in 1927 and his survivors were
sons Harry and Max of Chicago and daughter "Mrs. Sigmund ROTHSCHILD of
Boston."

If this family belongs to you, contact me at gmz262@....

Family tree on my mom's side. #general

Steven Garza <stevengarza@...>
 

Hi,

An aunt on my mom's side of the family did some research for my grandmother.
Just a side note: My mother and my father both have the surname Garza, but
my mother's family has lived in southern Texas for generations while my
grandfather on my father's side came >from Monterey Mexico.

I looked on Jewishgen and saw that Falcon is a Sephardic name. Garcia is
also listed which is similar to Garza, so I'm wondering if Garza is also.

MEMORANDUM OF THE FAMILY TREE OF MISS CELIA TEJERINA

Miss Celia Tijerina is a descendant of one of the colonists of Jose de
Escandon to-wit: Jose Salvador de la Garza, original grantee of the Espiritu
Santo Grant, in Cameron County, wherein the city of Brownsville is located.
Jose Salvador de la Garza was married to Gertrudis de la Garza Falcon, a
daughter of Blas Maria de la Garza Falcon, original founder of Camargo,
Mexico. Both were residents and settlers of Carmargo, Mexico. They had 3
children: Francisca Xaviera, Blas Maria, and Maria Margarita.

Francisca Xaviera married Jose de Coseascochea and they had two daughters,
Estefana and Feliciana.

Feliciana married Juan Jose Tijerina and they had ten children. One of them
was Antonio Tijerina. He married Catarina Cavazos and they had four
children: Dolores, Tomas, Santiago and Miguel.

Santiago married Genoveva Galves and they had five children: Antonio,
Casimiro, Tomas, Rita, and Santiago.

Antonio married Uwenseslada Arismendi and they had 7 children: Beatriz,
Ester, Celia, Samuel, Filiberto, Virginia, and Antonia.

Celia married Pablo Garza and they had four children: Graciela, Irma, Saul,
and Pablo.

Graciela married Pedro Garza and they had three children: Victor, Steven
(Me) and Diana.

One of the JewishGen InfoFiles has a chart that goes out to more distant
cousins than I can realistically expect to track in in several lifetimes.
Beider's book on surnames has an even clearer table. (personal opinion
