(US) Ellis Island National Museum To Open With New Exhibits #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Ellis Island Immigration Museum story ended in 1954 with the closing of
immigration through Ellis Island-but immigration to the United States
continues. That is the focus of the update of the story of immigration in
new post-1954 immigration galleries to open next month at the Ellis Island
National Immigration Museum. Note the Museum has changed its name to reflect
its larger focus >from Ellis Island to National Immigration.

The Museum still includes the 1892-1954 immigration period when Ellis Island
was open, but the Statute of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. has
expanded its mission to address national immigration.

Re: Saul=Solomon? #general

Neil Kominsky
 

Saul and Solomon are two different Hebrew names--Shaul vs. Shlomo.
Sol is most commonly short for Solomon. However, correspondence
between Hebrew names and what people were called in English can be
pretty random, especially for similar sounding names. It's easy to
slip between Saul and Sol in either direction. I suspect you have a
match.

Re: Novoselytsa #general

Vivian Kahn
 

What period of time did family live there? Have you checked the
JewishGen Hungary Database?

The place you are asking about could be Felsoneresznicze, Kisluckska, or
Ujkemencze, Hungary, all of which are now in Ukraine. There is also
Novoszelicja, Romania, that was formerly Sosujfalu, Hungary.

Is there anyone who has a source or contact or information to do with
Novoselytsya? The spelling may be different today but the family
Buchbinder is of prime interest.

Re: Saul = Solomon? #general

tom
 

Saul and Solomon are completely different biblical names, but because
of the similarity of sound, it's quite understandable that sometimes
sol and saul might get confused. Maybe the person didn't like the
full name solomon as much, or maybe there was another solomon in the
family, such as an in-law, where it's customary to avoid the possible
confusion of duplicated names.

So the short answer is most probably yes.


....... tom klein, toronto


ps. as it happens, there's also a third form of sol, as a common
sephardic female name.

Debbie <debidub@gmail.com>
Is Saul (or Sol) a variation or nickname for Solomon?

Seeking other descendants of Shmuel Yona and Sarah from Jerusalem #general

Avi Debby
 

I am seeking other descendants and any information about my
great-great-great grandparents, Shmuel Yona and Sarah, who lived in
Jerusalem in the 1870-80's.

I found them listed in the 1875 Montefiore census. According to the census
Shmuel Yona was born in Jerusalem and the family was listed as
members of the Jerusalem Samit-Courland Kollel. His occupation was listed
"iron bender". I believe that Sarah was also born in Jerusalem (other sources).
At the time of the census they had 3 children: Esther, Rivka (age ~5
and my great-great grandmother) and Abraham. There was no last name listed
in the census. Based on later documents,(Rivka's in the US), the
last name is most probably Levy or a slight possibility of being Siegel.

I do not know if Shmuel Yona and Sarah had any other children.

I know Rivka got married in Jerusalem to Aryeh Leib (Louis)Solomon and had
a family. The family (2 adults and 4 children) emigrated to the US in 1902
and I have been able to place all of Rivka's descendants in our family tree.

Searching other databases here in Israel (Helkat Mehokek), I found a burial
listing for Haya Esther daughter of Shmuel Yona, age 18, born in
1872, died in 1890. I am assuming that this is the same Esther listed in the
Montefiore census. I do not know if she was married or if she had any
children.

I haven't found anything on Abraham or as stated above I do not know
if Shmuel Yona and Sarah had any other children.

I also do not know when Shmuel Yona and Sarah died or if either remarried and
had children upon the other's death.

If anyone has any information about Shmuel Yona and Sarah and any other
descendants of Shmuel Yona and Sarah, please contact me.

Thanks,

FISCHER in the family #general

G. C. Kalman
 

In an old scrapbook of my late father, Endre KÁLMÁN (son of Samuel
KÁLMÁN and Dora BLAU) I have found two portraits: one is Minnie FISCHER
(daughter of Moritz FISCHER), the other is her husband, Emil STEINFELD.
They married in NY, 1887.

Before I go on and try to map this branch of relatives, I would like to
clarify what relation our (Hungarian) family has with the FISCHER family
- I have no idea, I have not found any FISCHER so far among my
ancestors. Still, for some reason, my father felt it important to
preserve these portraits in the scrapbook. (Note that this Moritz
FISCHER is certainly not the famous and wealthy Hungarian tradesman.)

Thanks, in advance, for any help.
