Re: ISAACS family and CHANSFORD in London #unitedkingdom #names

johnshaw410@...
 

Hello Christine

My family, Michael Isaacs was married in Hambro Synagogue on 15 Nov 1826 to  Bluma Levy:  his name was translated as Sheinsfort  (but could have been Chansford)   Whilst my grandmother thought we were related to Rufas Isaacs family, such was not the case.  Both Rufas and my family were wholesale fruiterers and lived at 11 Lamb Street. Spitalfields in 1826 and later in Covent Garden area.  Both he and his wife were fruit salesman/woman.. He died in 1855.

If you think this is the same family as yours I would be pleased to hear.  I dont have any Elias or Solomon, but a later Isaacs did marry a Solomons in 1899.

Earliest Use of Surnames in Romania? #names #romania

krausj2@...
 

Does anyone have a sense of when surnames came into use in the area that's modern day Romania?

I am researching my grandmother's unusual maiden name -- Holdengraber -- and I have used the recent quarantine time to look for connections among the roughly 300 records containing that name in the JewishGen records. The earliest all seem to come from the same narrow region, what's today Suceava County, Romania and was then the southern part of Bukovina. I have long assumed that all the Holdengrabers shared a common ancestor, but given the number of them already by the 1860s, I imagine that ancestor would have to have assumed the surname as early as the 1760-80s.

I was under the impression that Jews didn't assume surnames until the Napoleonic reforms, though. Is it possible this ancestor would have done so three or four decades earlier?

Thanks for whatever information anyone can share. I'd be happy to compare notes with anyone who's interested. My deep dive into the records from these 3-4 towns is showing interesting ways that families moved from one nearby place to another over generations.

Father and son with same given name.i have xome across #belarus #poland #general

Steven
 

Hi all,

I have come across two instances now of a son having the same given name as the father. In both cases I do not know when the father passed. One is from present day Belarus from the late 19th century, the other is from present day Poland from the early 19th century. I’m assuming that the father passed away before the child was born, but has anyone else ever heard of another possible reason? 

Thank you,

Seeking descendants of Shlomo/Zalman FRIEDMAN and Sarah COHEN #russia #belarus

Judy Kaufman
 

I can't find any information about where my great grandmother Anna Friedman (1873-1938) came from or who her siblings were.  She emigrated to NYC but I can't figure out which of the many Anna Friedmans on ship logs she might be. She married Jacob Rosenblum from Brest in NY in 1890.  On census data her birthplace is always just Russia.  Marriage, death certificates, etc. name her parents as Solomon/Shlomo/Zalman Friedman and Sarah Cohen.  I have found 3 other Friedmans (William, Frieda, Line) living in NYC around the same time who have parents with those same names, but the names are so common I can't be sure they are the same parents.  And DNA matching has so far not brought me anyone with information.

Marcella,

 

If I recall correctly, there is a NYC Jewish Orphanage records on the Center for Jewish History website.

 

There I was able to find the names of 2 of my mom's cousins who were there in 1897 after there father

died.   The Center for Jewish History did send me their admission records page.

 

I am not sure how they do this today as this was about 18 years when I did this.

 

But hope it helps.  I knew they were in an orphanage but didn't know where so just took a chance to

look it up when I found their website.

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Child, FEIGE/GUSSIE lost in Transit approx 1902...arriving into New York alone

 

Feige aka Gussie [MATUS/MARCUS] was lost in transit  and arrived in New York in abt 1902, alone.  The story has her being 4 years old at the time but she may have been as old as 8…b 1894-1897 Panevesz Lithuania

She may not have been able to convey her last name properly when she arrived.  She was transported to an orphanage. ….? 

Somehow she eventually found family, last name Marcus and by 1925 was married to NATHANSON….she was always known as Gussie in her later life

Any suggestions on how to find Gussie’s earlier days in the orphanage or passage to New York - are most welcome

Thanks   Stay safe and well    Marcella Shames   <marcellash@...>

Looking for descendants of Klara Kramer SORKIN, probably in Israel #ukraine #israel #usa

Joseph Walder
 

Klara SORKIN née KRAMER was born in Ukraine in 1923 and died in Israel in 2014. Her parents were Chava Moisevna MURAKHOVSKAYA (1884-1941) and Shaul (Sheilyk) KRAMER (1886-1941). Chava was a sister of my maternal grandmother, Yenta Ester (1897-1985), who came to the United States in 1923. Chava and Yenta’s parents were Yankel Moshe Avrumov MURAKHOVSKY and Krenya LUCHANSKAYA. The MURAKHOVSKY and LUCHANSKY families lived primarily in Tarashcha and Koshevata.

I am hoping to find descendants of Klara SORKIN in Israel.

I can be reached at 503-715-6254 in the United States or at jscottwalder@....

One of the biggest orphanages in NYC at the turn of the century was the Hebrew Orphan Asylum (called the HOA).  My mother and aunt were there for awhile.  I got their admission and discharge records from the American Jewish Historical Society.

i would love to know the sources for these numbers.  hungary was a country of over 10 million people, so it's hard to imagine that there were only 108 traffickers altogether, and with a jewish population of less than 10%,  that 68 of them were jews.

Re: Sharing family tree information #general

I give them a link to my online tree on my website.  It does not allow download of gedcoms, shows only names and no data for living people.  And some living people are privatized, upon request.  There are some photos there (none - of living people).  I strongly recommend to ALL companies that mother's maiden name is a TERRIBLE security question - and require a second one - often the name of a first pet.  When given choices for security questions - I avoid all questions about relatives - such as your father's middle name, if at all possible.  Cars, proms, streets lived on, pets, schools attended etc - all much better questions.
