Searching: SCHNEIDER from Kiev #general

Lynn DiMatteo <LiniWD@...>
 

Tracie -

On your signature on your success story (congratulations!!), you have
SCHNEIDER >from Kiev. I also have SCHNEIDER ancestors >from Kiev - Abraham
and Ida SCHNEIDER (SNYDER) owned a tavern on a crossroads outside of Kiev.

They received advance notice of a pogrom and were able to sell the tavern
and emigrate. They came over in 1882 with 4 or 5 of their children (the
rest were born in the US in NYC). One of their daughters, Bessie, was my
great grandmother. I have the names of all Bessie's brothers and sisters
and many of their descendants. Bessie married Israel Goldberg in NYC and
their children started the Goldberg family association in NY in 1929.

Does anything sound familiar?

I would like to know how to translate "second (or any other number)

To which Werner Cohn replied:

"Vetter zweiten Grades," according to my Wildhagen dictionary
Perfectly correct, except that "Vetter" is only for a male cousin, a second
cousin, female, would be:

"Base zweiten Grades."

Personally, I have always found the use of the word "Vetter" for cousin
confusing, since it can also mean uncle.

There is also another way of saying first cousin in German, and that is
"Geschwisterkind," which might be found on some older documents. A second
cousin could be either "Ander Geschwisterkind" or "Geschwisterkindskind."

Forename Baron #general

Harold Pollins <pollins@...>
 

Baron is a fairly common forename for Jewish men. Is it uniquely so or do
non-Jews also have that name? I'm wondering that if one comes across that
name in one's research can one assume that the person is Jewish?

STEINER #general

Maya Hahn <mayah@...>
 

I am searching for my cousin, whose maiden name was Pelsa STEINER. She lived
in Paris in the early 1950's. I do not know if she's married, single, alive
or dead. Her mother was probably a ROSENBAUM, most likely originally from
Southern Poland.

If anyone out there knows or has any information on Pesla, I surely would
appreciate some help in locating her.

Searching SCHWARTZ #general

Arthur Blutstein <meandart@...>
 

I have hit a "brick wall" trying to locate the last of my MOED
g-grandfather's 8 children/families. Lena MOED (b.ca 1895 in Odessa)
married-in NY- Joe SCHWARTZ & had 3 children:
Paul, Irving & Hilda. They all may still be living-in their mid/ late 70's
to early 80's. The sheer volume of "same" names on Social Security Death
Index renders such an approach insurmountable & as I said they may not be on this list.. Lena died around 1960, probably on Long Island,NY All the
appropriate NYC death records were of the wrong Lena. SCHWARTZ. Hilda is
thought to have married a PERONE. No one in my "family" has been in touch
with them since 1945!!! Any suggested research approaches appreciated.

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

Carol Skydell <skydell@...>
 

Lemuel writes:
Dear All,
Just an added comment to the passenger list database, isn't it
convenient to run a search for surnames to verify that a
surname does indeed appear on the list without the specific
requirement to identify which ship?
Perhaps Lemuel could identify in which of the many internet
search engines devoted to passenger ships he has found names of
passengers?

Q: Research in Singapore #general

Anthony J. Stern <ajstern@...>
 

Folks, I have had some clues that part of my wifes family went thru
Singapore in their travels, and at least one of them, possibly her great
Grandfather Israel Judel Goldberg died there. Since this would probably
in the 1930's maybe the Colonial Office in UK might be a place to start.
Appreciate any ideas.
