Moses Kaminsky Family Society #general

Does anyone have information about the Moses Kaminsky Family Society? I
have been trying to find the minutes of the meetings without success. The
Society met in The Bronx, NY during the 1940's and 1950's.

Shtetl Bobrika doesn't sound familiar, but "Pshemish" looks like
misspelling of Przemysl (pron. Psheh meeshl), Galicia, Poland. One needs a
proper spelling of the shtetl in order to start the search for the
mishpukhe.

Jews in Urbana-Champaign, IL #general

Barry Finkel <b19141@...>
 

If I remember correctly, when I was at the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign a history major wrote a thesis on the Jews of
Urbana-Champaign. I have no idea what the title is, but I assume that
the UIUC library would have a copy on microfiche, if not on paper.
This might be of interest to JewishGen Researchers.

Search in London #general

M. Wolff <mwolff@...>
 

Dear Jewish Genners,

Some time ago I posted the following message:

Who knows Hendrik and Willem WOLFF, sons of Eliazar Salomon Wolff and
Henriette Hijmans. Both left for England (London ?) in 1871 and 1872.

Hendrik Wolff, born in Nijmegen 7-2-1831, was married Nijmegen 26-1-1854
to his cousin Jetta Louissa Wolff, born Wageningen 26-7-1832, daughter
of Gompers Salomon Wolff and Elisabeth Billeke Levy (Levison).
from this marriage born in Rotterdam: Elias Wolff 11-3-1856, Gompertz
Wolff 9-1-1858, Henriette Wolff 3-5-1860, Elisabeth Wolff 8-11-1862,
Leendert Wolff 25-3-1865, Rosetta Wolff 28-2-1869 and Willem Wolff
22-5-1871.

Willem Wolff, born Nijmegen 9-2-1839, married Nijmegen 14-11-1865 to
Judith Hertz, born Nijmegen 17-2-1837, daughter of Leonard Jacob Hertz
and Regina Louisse van Zanten.
from this marriage bn Nijmegen: Elisabeth Wolff 14-5-1866, Regina
Louissa Wolff 22-6-1867, Henriette Wolff 30-12-1868 and Elias Wolff
2-10-1871.

Hendrik and Willem (Henry and William) and their families are my lost
tribes.
For many years I have been trying (without any result) to find out what
happend to them.

But now I have a point of departure. Recently somebody told me that in
the 1891 Census-Index of heads of families in Spitalfields, he had
discovered Henry Wolff, born in Nijmegen, fruitmerchant, and living at
the address 47b Crispinstreet in Whitechapel.
Did they stay in London or somewhere else in England, did they leave
England and returned to Holland ?
In Holland I never succeeded to trace them and I would very much like to
know if there are any descendants.
Unfortunately the gentleman who found out for me, is living far >from
London
How nice it would be if anybody >from London could do some research for
me about Henry Wolff and his family and maybe also about his brother
William.

In one of the postings I noticed the following address where there might
be some information.

"The Family Records Center" 1 Myddelton Street, London EC1R 1UW

This should be a brand new building, containing among other records,
indexes of births, marriages and deaths in England and Wales since 1837.

Upstairs are the microfilm census records 1841 - 1891, mainly by street
address, so you need to know this.

May I here >from one of you ?
Thank you so much in advance.

Re: Boston-SWART FAMILY #general

Nancy & Peter Pfaff <ppfaff@...>
 

I have had similar experiences, not being able to locate a birth record.
Unfortunatly, even if the family were required by law to file a birth
record, if the child was born at home and no one knew - or cared - about
the law, it wasn't recorded. I have one relative who had his birth
recorded in 1941, even though he was born in 1892 (apparently needed it
for some government document). His brother's birth was never recorded.

You may want to try contacting the town directly, rather than going
through the Mass. Archives. The cities and towns around Boston are
quite used to looking up very old documents (lots of genealogy
researchers in Mass.) I found some relatives >from the City of Quincy,
even though the Archives didn't have copies.

Good luck,

Nancy Pfaff

Thanks from the BERGERS/BIRGERS #lithuania

SandyMike <smberg@...>
 

In this world fast-paced world people occasionally forget to take the
time to say thanks - here is one that will not be overlooked.

My family, the BERGERs, will forever be indebted to Ann Rabinowitz and
all the others who have contributed to the efforts that this past
weekend pushed our knowledge of our family back about 125 years.

Through Ann's incredible knowledge of Kupishok (our family's ancestral
home), she almost instantly provided highly detailed information
previously unknown to my family regarding my GGF, then, shocked us will
_all new_ (to us) information regarding our GGGF, GGGGF (born circa
1776), a GGU, and a GGA, and all the allied information regarding their
families. She also told us, again new information, that our family name
is BIRGER not BERGER.

We now also know we have previously unknown living blood relatives in
Israel and South Africa, and logically, I am sure, elsewhere as well.

The impact on our family has been "electric." Real excitement.

Again, Ann, we all thank you and await the coming revelations.
