Ship lists question #hungary

I'm realizing that the ship embarcation lists are a very
good genealogical resource. Does anyone know what
was the most common port of departure for Hungarian
immigrants going to MEXICO?

Thanks so much,

Dear Steve:
First of all, his Hebrew name was not haLevy, this only indicates descent
from Levites, but his Hebrew name was Simcha ben ? (his father's name, which you
don't know yet, also he may have had a double-barreled "kinnui" or other name --
Simcha something ben ???, one being yiddish and one hebrew).
Now, since Elia Velvel was born in 1837, you need to access the Mogilev
actual records, which begin in 1837, so you are lucky indeed.
If you find Elia Velvel's record, you will find his father and
grandfather's name (Simcha ben ???), mother's and her father's name (Pescha bat
??), sometimes occupations, Hebrew and Russian date, baby's name of course, name
of recorder, sometimes other information depending on prominence of family. the
index begins at 1864.
Gomel is not Ukraine, it is Belarus, just south of Mogilv. Of course with
all the border changings of the geburnias it could have been UKR at some point, I
leave this to the border experts.
Possibilities of names you should be looking for, working >from general
naming patterns: Simcha or variations, Elia, Velvel (which is sometimes Velvel
Vulf), Yuda/Yudel, Morris was generally Movsha/meishe/Moshe, Pinkhos, David.
In the list, which should be in BELARUS Sig, we have in 1872, Vulf,
Shmuil, Mordukh and Meir and Mendel (possibly Morris was named after these or a
Movsha). Also, in index, are Kkaim-Dovid, Girsh-Vulf.
Pinkhos/Pincas is listed in 1879 and in 1881, and in 1884.
There are many names in the index that might indicate the names in your
list below. The best thing I can suggest is that you round up Hebrew/yiddish
readers and a Russian reader and head on out to your local LDS Family History
Center, order the films and start at the beginning.
I always give this advice: Photocopy each page with your name on it as you
find it. Copy ALL pages with your name on it. While a name might not mean anything
the day you copy it, two years later you will need it (I think this is a rule of
genealogy -- the one record you don't copy is the one you need to piece the whole
puzzle together years down the line -- bottom line: copy everything even if you
don't know how it fits together, yet!)

Simcha Leifshutz married Pescha Finkle. Hebrew name was possibly Halevy.
Child of Simcha Leifshutz and Pescha Finkle is: Elia Velvell Leifshutz,
born 1837 in Mogelov; died 1910 in Gomel, Ukraine (on the Dneiper River).
He married Sarah Levin, daughter of Label Levin and Razel. Children of
Elia Leifshutz and Sarah Levin are:
i. Dorothy Leifshutz, died in Israel.
ii. Risa Leifshutz, born in Azaritch, Minsk; died young.
iii. Rose Leifshutz, born in Azaritch, Minsk; died in Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania.

Pincus Velvell was my great-grandfather. I don't know the exact spelling

BELINKI-BELENKI - Mogilev Index #belarus

dardasht@...
 

For Steve:
Names in index may be BELINKI or BELENKI. This may be due to
changes in spelling by recorder of birth, or who knows why.
I have only given first names if the name is strictly these two.
I have listed last name if there is a variation that "could" be the name.
Good luck. Actually, I have the record numbers for "B" so am
including them as well. The record numbers were not entered by Bella for
all my letters (my hard copy), but when it goes on-line, the record
numbers should be there for all letters.
DISCLAIMER: Don't know if the index was checked or proofed
against actual records when it was compiled. Bella only worked with the
index, so it is possible record numbers indicated are not actually the
record numbers for each name.

1865: 3, no first name, 41, 60, 163.
1866: 6, no first name.130, 187, 192, 209, 261
1867; 2, no first name, 25, 225
1870: 4, no first name. 24, 87, 143, 253,
1871: 3, no first name. 22, 25, 34
1872: Shloma, Movsha, Vulf. 81,, 210, 363.

1877: Karpel. 323
1878: Meir 245
1879: Leiba, Khaim, Aron, Movsha, Leizer. 25, 172, 195, 350, 357
1880: Khatskel, Kasriel, Yankel-Khaim. 280, 336, 348
1882: Shimon,265
1883: Vulf, Isroil. 44, 136.
1884: Khaim, Shimon, Gedalia, Karpel, Aron. 16, 41, 239, 261, 278, 297
1885: Isroil, Shmaya. 213, 285.
There is some confusion about where years 1886-7-8 begin/end:
1886: Tsulker, Khaim, Karpel. 182, 290, 340.
1887: Mordukh-Leib, Khaim, Girsha (twins). 44, 233, 299, 380/1
1888: Berka. 326.
1889: Mordukh-Leib. 91.
1890: Khaim, Itska, Leizer, Kahim-Gertsov (son of Gerts), Leizer
Yudevev (son of Yuda), Leizer Aizikov (son of Isaac). 187, 217,
338, 340.
1891: Girsha, Khaim, Itsak. 241, 346, 309.
1892: Shimon (twins), Berka, Khaim, Girsha. 11/2, 29, 277, 355.
1893: Afroim/Ephraim, Borukh, Movsha-itska, Khaim, Mordukh-Zussya.
27, 98, 107, 253, 405.

And there you have it. Thanks to the person who did the index in 1890-91,
we have some patrynomics. I wish everyone who helped in preparation of
the index (we do not know who made it, or why it was made and about 6
different handwritings are on the original list) >from the actual records
had been as careful. Unfortunately, this person only did a year or two of
each letter. having the patrynomics for each would have been very
helpful.
Best of luck.

1. Have a large common room that is always supervised except when all
reunion attendees are at some function. This room should be be
conveniently located and probably in the convention hotel. This room can
be stocked with genealogical charts, memoirs of family members, video
tapes of prior reunions, and so on.

2. Arrange for bleachers or the equivalent (a row of chairs and row of
tables to stand on) for the group picture. This way people rather than
scenery will fill the picture.

family re-union #general

BREST FAMILY <angi@...>
 

Hi there,

In May of 1997 I went with my family to Dublin, Ireland for a
YODAIKEN/JODEIKEN family re-union.

On arrival, we were presented with name Tags and we were all introduced to
one another. Apart >from the Irish Yodaikens and the South Africans, I had
never heard of the other 80 people there. As the Yodaiken Tree contains
well over 5000 names, it was impossible to put the Tree up on the Wall as
you can well imagine, so what they did was to put the SECTION of the Tree
for each of the 80 attendees, up on the Wall, connecting them back to the
earliest progenitors. This way we could see at a glance just how were were
related to the others. This was a great way to start chatting to everyone,
all looking at the Yodaiken chart on the wall and everyone very excitedly
showing everyone else where they "fitted in".

We toured Ireland for 5 days, and in this time I felt I got to know my
cousins. (I had never HEARD of half of them before). One of the chaps
with us had Kaddish for his father, and 80 people got together and said
Kadish with him. I cannot begin to tell you how emotional this was.

If you would like the names of the organizers of the re-union, please don't
hesitate to contact me privately.

I wish you luck with your re-union and I am sure it will be wonderful.

All the best

The correct title is der Feirediger Zeil.

There is also a Hebrew edition called Amud Ha'esh.
