Joshua BERGER #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I would once again request your help in researching my paternal grandmother's
family.

Mollie BERGER Dan (1884-1970) was born in New York and died in Memphis. She was
the daughter of Samuel Joseph BERGER (1854-1926) and Zipora Annie SUBUTA
(1856-1947) of Pultusk, Poland. Mollie had four siblings: Hattie Sarah BERGER
Goldberg (1887-1953), who was born in New York and died in Memphis; Sherrell Lewis
BERGER (1888-1928), who was born in New York and died in Little Rock, Arkansas;
Avrome David BERGER (1891-1923), who was born in New York and died in St. Louis;
and Dorothy Vivian BERGER Goldberg (1898-1991), who was born in Memphis and died in
Memphis. We think that Samuel Joseph and Annie married in Pultusk, and they must
have immigrated to the United States around 1880.

We know that Samuel Joseph's father was named Joshua. His wife was Henie Rose (I
am not sure whether Rose was a maiden name or a middle name). She was born in
1834. To my knowledge, Joshua probably died around 1880, since only Henie Rose
appeared in the 1900 Census along with Samuel Joseph, Annie, and their children,
and did not immigrate. (If he had, he would probably have died in New York
between 1880 and 1898. There is apparently no record of his moving to Memphis.)
Henie Rose died in 1904 in Memphis, and Samuel Joseph and Annie lived there until
they died.

Supposedly, Samuel Joseph was born in Grodno, then in the Russian Empire and later
in Lithuania or Poland (today it is within Belarus). However, I am running into a
brick wall regarding whether he actually lived in Grodno. He did meet his wife,
who lived in Pultusk, and they married before emigrating. I realize that as a
young adult he could have moved to Pultusk, but still I am not sure whether I
should continue to assume that he actually lived in Grodno. He could have lived
elsewhere in Poland (or Lithuania) for all I know. So if anyone has any
information on the relatives listed above, I would appreciate your replying to me
privately.

Re: Louis Kramer passenger manifest #ukraine

Stephan Owen Parnes
 

Marilyn Levinson was having trouble locating the manifest for her ancestor Louis Kramer, who came to the U.S. in 1898 according to the data she had already found.

One approach that I have found productive is to find the Hebrew or Yiddish name of the elusive ancestor and use that in the search. I was fortunate in finding a photo of the gravestone for Louis and Anna Kramer at an online resource. Anna was Chana and Louis was Aharon Yehudah (and Yehudah is often associated with the name Leib, hence the transformation to Louis). This was the key.

Aaron Kreimer and his wife Chane arrived in NYC on 7 September 1898 on the Westernland, sailing >from Antwerp (the port Marilyn already knew).

Re: Town in Kiev Guberniya #ukraine

Alan Shuchat
 

The Russian-language Wikipedia (ru.wikipedia.org) lists two towns named Vydumka in the area you suggest. Both are in what is now the Zhitomir oblast (area) of Ukraine. They were founded in 1846 and 1930, so perhaps the older one is more likely. It's in the Korostyshev rayon (region) and only had 31 inhabitants in 2001. its coordinates are 50/13E, 29/11N, which you can copy and paste into Google Maps. Brusilov is about 15 miles east and slightly north of this Vydumka.

Re: Louis Kramer passenger manifest #ukraine

Laurie Sosna
 

Not every name on every manifest has been transcribed. I found that
one name I was researching was on a page with large section missing
(the names column).

My solution, since I knew the boat name & arrival, I went here:
http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=3D7488
Then used the tools on the right hand side to find the boat and looked
through all the pages. I looked in the "home town" column until I
found the town I was looking for, I could extrapolate the person from
that info.
