Re: Judge Leon SANDERS - New York 1900s #general

Irwin Nack <inack@...>
 

The Old Records Room of the NYC Municipal Archives (31 Chambers St.) has
a variety of records relating to attorneys and public judicial officials
going back to the 18th century. If Judge Sands was a NYC judge, chances
are there would be some info there.

Good Luck

He said it wasn't all that unusual for a Greek Jew to be named Chris (or
Christos, or whatever the Greek equivalent is). He had a small grocery on
the Lower East Side of NYC.

On July 22 I sent to the NYC Archives for the birth certificate of my great
uncle.
Today I received an envelope containing the following:

A letter with his exact name, birth year, and borough, stating they could
not find him

Also enclosed was the copy of the original birth certificate with complete
information.

Just thought you all would like a laugh.

A big opps to everyone on my prior message about Judge Leon Sanders -- if you
did not guess it should be 1871 not 1971!

If you have any information about him I would love to hear >from you.

Thanks.

Searching Levine Drug of Florida #general

Bernard Levine <rbtr8r@...>
 

I am searching for the descendants of the persons who owned Levine Drug
of Florida. I believe the original owners were Samuel and Arthur LEVINE,
the sons of Yankel LEVINE nee LEIBOWITZ. Yankel was a brother of my
paternal grandfather Baruch Mayer LEVINE. Samuel and Arthur were first
cousins of my father, Aaron, who, had he lived to today, would be 109
years old. Therefore, if Arthur and Samuel were about his age, it is
unlikely they are still living. As a result it is their descendants that
I am seeking. But for this branch of my family tree, it is complete and
I will share the rest of the tree with the descendants.

Please reply to Bernard Levine (Rbtr8r@juno.com)


Re: accessing High School Records in NYC #general

By now there must be several messages identifying
Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn...

I'd like to add that my sister and I were very successful
in getting photocopies of our mother's mention in the
yearbooks >from Morris High in the Bronx. Our source was a very helpful
school librarian who dug out the old yearbooks.

So, the librarian at Erasmus (hate to tell you what we in the
Bronx called it <grin>:) would be a good person to contact.

Searching "SEGAL" and "SOLOMIN" #lithuania

Mark J. Budman <budman@...>
 

Hello. I am searching for people with ties to the "SEGAL" family. Here
is a bit of information I have:

Born Shaya Solomin in Kovno, Lithuania, he changed his name to Shaya
Solomin Segal when he moved to Canada. The Toronto city directories list
him as living in Toronto >from 1912-1920 and his occupation was a
jeweller. He lived on Elizabeth street and Dundas Street West during
this time, and seem to move around to different addresses in Toronto
each year.

I have a letter >from his sister Beila SOLOMIN of Vilna
(Lithuania/Poland) which has a lot of details:

Parents were Sander and Chaya Solomin of Kovno.
Brother - Abraham Yakov Solomin living in Vilkaviski, Lithuania

Birthyear : Approximately 1895, Kovno (although this might be
incorrect)

Married in London (could be in UK or London Ontario)

In addition, it is possible his wife's name (in English) was Bertha. The
Toronto city directory (1931) states "Bertha Segal, widow of Solomon
residing at 147 Cuzon (Toronto) and worked as a fur finisher for Jos
Greenspoon.

I also have a picture of Shaya Solomon Segal.

If anyone has any information please contact me.

Re: BORISHANSKI, BARISHANSKI, BORUSHANSKI, BORISHINSKI family #belarus

Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

I and my co-researchers Emil Schafer in California, Jay Berkson in
Connecticut, and Irwin Gordon in New York are seeking all descendents of
the following family >from any and all towns in Belarus:
BORISHANSKI, BARISHANSKI, BORUSHANSKI, BARIS, BORIS, BARISH.

The name BORISHANSKI was adopted in about 1805-12 by the earliest
ancestors, who appear in the revision lists of 1811, 1816, etc. It was
taken >from the name of a small village or nobleman's estate called
BORISHIN, near Nowogrudok. We strongly believe that all Jews bearing the
names BORISHANSKI, BARISHANSKI, BORUSHASKY, or BORISHINSKI are
descendents of the first ancestors to adopt the name, and are, therefore,
cousins. To accentuate this point we can state with full proof that all
the Jews in and >from Belarus bearing these names during the past
190 years can be linked to the "founding fathers" of the family. So far, no
exception to this theory has surfaced, and therefore, we are dealing with a
unique name, all of whose bearers are related to one another.

The name, in its various spellings, appears in the following towns, roughly
in descending order of frequency: Nowogrudok, Dworetz, Minsk, Wseilub,
Zelva, Slonim, Baranovici, Minsk, Turetz, Stubca, Slutzk, Uzda, Lipniski,
Lina, Palonka, Sinyavka, Romanovo (Lenina),Ljahavicy, Snov, Ljubca.

In America, most Borishanski's shortened the name to BARIS or BORIS. About
50 years ago, a Baris Family Circle flourished in New York.

Our small group of cousin-researchers holds a database of about a thousand
descendents, revision lists and other records. Emil Schafer has composed
scores of detailed biographies of family members.

We welcome all inquiries.

Haifa, Israel, (husband of Myrna Lefko Bennett, whose mother was a
Borishanski born and raised in Nowogrudok.)
