Passenger lists #records #lithuania

 I am trying to decide if I have hit a brick wall or an actual dead end. I cannot find immigration records for my Great Grandparents. Here is what I know.
My Great Grandfather, Max(Mordecai Tsvi or Hersch) Hoffman was born in Veisiejai Lithuania in 1860. He married my Great Grandmother, Rochel Leah Pasiutelis who was from Liskiava Lithuania in June 1887.

They ended up in Pittsburgh PA. Max’s Declaration of Intent was Oct. 30, 1897 and his Petition for Naturalization was Nov. 18, 1899. 

They had one son Abraham Abba born in the old country whose birth date on various census records and death record is listed as 1886 which must be incorrect since the parents were married in 1887.

My Grandmother Fannie Hoffman was the second child. There are no birth records for her anywhere. However there is a family story that she had a twin that died. The City if Pittsburgh has a death record for a baby born to my Great Grandparents that died on July 27, 1894 at the age of 3 months and 26 days. There is no birth record for this baby. The parents state they have lived at this address 3 months and before that Russia.
They had six more children born in Pittsburgh between 1886-1908.

There is a passenger record for a Hersch Hoffman coming alone on the Helvetia from Liverpool to Castle Gardens on Dec. 9, 1889 alone.
No records for Rochel Leah and some Abraham.
Since there is a big age gap between Abraham and the rest of the siblings I assume Max came first alone and later Rochel Leah and Abraham joined them.
I cannot find them and in consequence I cannot determine when and where my grandmother was born and if the baby who died is her twin or not.
Is this a true dead end or what else can I do?

Bendery, 1808 translated, need your help #bessarabia #romania

Yefim Kogan
 

Hello everybody, 

We (Jeff and I) have translated 103 records for Bendery, 1808.  There is interesting information there, for example  70 Jews from that list were local residents, and 33 - citizens of Russia from different towns around, Tiraspol, Dubossary, etc.  Usually we have in the record something like Abram Khaimovich - Abram son of Khaim,  but in several records it is different.  In one record it gives a profession of the person, and couple of records we could not decipher, and asking for your help.

I attached a pdf  file with all pieces we could not read.

All the best,
Yefim Kogan

Luc,  thank you very much.  That is great.  I knew that in Moldova they used at some point cyrillic, but that language goes back probably 15 century or so.

Did you or anybody else in the group tried to read the 'second' page I sent?

All the best,

RDeutsch@...
 

I  found a record of my ggf Nachman Deutsch coming to the United States from Dolhinov (Belarus, Lithuania, Russia) along with one of his young children Chaim Deutsch.  Then no additional records at all until 1904 when my grandfather Abraham Deutsch came to the United States and the young child my ggf came with shows up coming again.   No records of leaving the US and no records of living here and no records of my ggf????   They must have returned but what a brick wall.


Re: given name "Slawa"? #names #poland

Jana.Tegel@...
 

It is a short form of BRONISLAVA.
BrOnja ist a one possibility to be called. And SlAva the second one. 
With an another stress the word BronjA means armor. And Slava means glory.
BRONISLAVA means the glory of the armor.
It is a beautiful russian name.

Dear Barbara,

I tried Geneanet without success
this is most probably Lembach in Alsace (67), France

You can find all the records (birth , marriage , death) via a nice interface : http://archives.bas-rhin.fr/registres-paroissiaux-et-documents-d-etat-civil/ETAT-CIVIL-C262#search-results
I am reading 1717 as early dates

As always, if you are not sure about the dates, start  with the Decennale tables

Hope you will find your names !

Best regards
David

FBI Case Files on Fold3 #records

Sherri Bobish
 

 
Dear Genners,
 
There is a database "FBI Case Files" on Fold3.
 
There are two separate pages in that database, as follows:
 
Ester LOEFFELFELD
# 40-628
 
Both pages have the same number.
 
Can anyone with access to Fold3 tell me what these two pages contain?
 
Since her surname here has the same misspelling as on her 1921 passenger manifest, I am wondering if it relates to that, or her naturalization?
 
Thank you,

Re: What's a Cutter? #usa #general

Alexander Sharon
 

This profession was very popular just 50 years ago in Poland based Jewish tailoring co-operatives. Today I cannot locate name or definition of the tailor-cutter in Polish dictionaries.
If you are searching name of cutter in old Polish professions is known as "zakrojczy" [zah kroh i:chi]

Art,

My 2ndGGF, Leon Meyer (b. 1836, Laubach? Lembach?), emigrated from Alsace to the U.S. 1855.  His father, Solomon M. Meyer (b. 1798), emigrated in 1859, if I have the correct records.  My grandmother noted that that Solomon was married to a Fredericka Moehler (b. 1803).  As I have not found an immigration record for her, I presume she died before Solomon left France.  I know nothing else about where Solomon and Leon are from or their families.

NOTE:  There is a Solomon Meyer from Alsace who married a Fredericka Moog and I believe this couple has had their records confused with my relatives by others.  Moog is listed as having a daughter Julia and a son Lewis.  Fredericka Moehler had at least six children--Moses, Samuel, Leon, Sophia, David, Simon.

I would welcome any records or hints you might find.  My than ks in advance for your generosity and willingness to help!

You may wish to check with your local library as many libraries subscribe to Newspapers.com. You can then access the site for free through the library. You do not have to be at the library to do this. There are many other sites that require paid membership, but can be accessed through you local library.

How kind of you, David.  
My Weisser/Weiser are from BUCZACZ (today called BUCHACH)a Galician shtetl that belonged to Poland between the World Wars and is today in Ukraine.

Per wikipedia: It was in Habsburg Monarchy (1772—1804),
Austrian empire (1804—1867), 
Austro-Hungary (1867—1918), 
Poland (1919—1939).  

Shabbat Shalom, 
Barbara

Dear Barbara, 

I am sorry for your recent loss

I was looking at various lists of people who were caught in France (via Drancy) : can this be the following ones ?

Weiser (Moses) born on July 11th, 1902 in Warsaw (Poland)                    died on September 30th, 1942 in Auschwitz (Poland).  
Weiser (Rosa)         born on the April 1st, 1894 in Budapest (Hungary)            died on August 29th, 1942 in Auschwitz (Poland)

I have no clue where is Buczacz mentioned -- can you please add more information ?

Re: Maiden name of Great Grandmother #ukraine

Raylene Gurewich
 

Ellen, yes it's very frustrating. I hope somehow we can both find that missing branch. I see you are researching WEISSMAN/VAYSMAN. Funny, that is my paternal grandmother's mother's maiden name. She died giving birth to her 6th child in the Ukraine. Her first name was Hinda. The one I am missing is my paternal grandfather's mother.

Re: Jewish soldier in Boer War #general

EdrieAnne Broughton
 

Since the Boer War was fought in South Africa, 1899-1902 you have a time frame for your search.  Since I doubt there was British Army recruitment in Lithuania, I would suppose that he immigrated to Britain before that.  You don't give grandmother's birth date, or the brother's...or what his name was in Lithuania.  With 20 years between siblings, there might have been siblings in between who passed down more complete information.  My advice would be to write out a more complete synopsis of what you know, with complete names and dates as you know them...even off-line, as if you were writing a story and you might answer some of your own questions and at least in the end you might better define what your question is.
