Re: How do you ?????? #general

Trudy - if we are addressing contemporary gay couples most people I know use "partners" until or if they marry. Then gay men refer to each other as husbands and lesbian couples refer to each other as wife. I am part of the community and live in Oklahoma and that is what I see here. Several of my favorite authors are lesbian (not why I read them - had no clue when purchased) and if married they refer to their "wife" on their blogs or about the author info on Amazon. 

If you are sticking to your old software you will probably have to just enter notes on the relationship. I use Legacy and know some great uncles were gay but as far as I know they were never in long term relationships - a different era.

SZKLARKIEWICZ or similar, STEIGLITZ and similar, and ELLENBOGEN. 1800s #poland

Barry Clarke
 

This is my first post; hope I'm doing it right!

Per 1896 UK Naturalization Certificate of MAX CLARKE, his parents, who would be my great-great-grandparents, were MARKS/MATTHEW and ZLATO/LOTTIE CLARKE. The family name originally was SZKLARKIEWICZ or similar; on one UK document it was spelt SHKLARKIEWITZ. I am told that was probably how it sounded, so simply a phonetical spelling. Max's Naturalization Certificate stated he was born in JEDWABNE. That would have been around 1870. His sister, my great-grandmother's, anglicised name was MOLLY. She was born around 1862. She married a STEIGLITZ or similar who died or was killed in the early 1880s. Their son, my grandfather, was SAMUEL, born April 1881. Molly emigrated with infant Samuel to DUBLIN, Ireland, she married a JACOB CLARKE from SEDLICE, then they lived in LIVERPOOL, England, then SOUTH AFRICA  (via for Max, at least, RHODESIA). We believe too from a photograph in the late 1800s/early 1900s that there may have been a family relationship with ELLENBOGENs, the link most likely dating back to the early to mid-1800s. (Molly's three CLARKE children were SAMUEL, GERTIE, HENRY. Max married ESTHER LANDSBERG. Their three children were MONTAGUE, NORMAN, EVELYN. All in South Africa).

I would be grateful to hear of any links or information about any of these people; preferably by email to bbclarke98@...

Thank you,

Looking for LABUSHINSKY emigrants from London, England #unitedkingdom

lgellnick@...
 

My paternal grandfather Solomon LABUSHINSKY left his wife and 2 children abt 1921 to live with his mistress, Emma RUBINOFF, in Whitechapel, East London, England. They had a daughter Judith LABUSHINSKY, born April 1924. Solomon died in 1931. I would like to trace Judith (my aunt) and/or her descendants, if any. I’ve been unable to find either a record of her marriage or death (or her mother’s death) so assume they emigrated. Perhaps, like my father’s sister to Canada after WW2, or USA?

Re: IOFE family, Vieksniai, Lithuania, Revision List errors? #lithuania

Russ Maurer
 

There may be a simpler explanation. When one is transliterating back and forth from Cyrillic into Latin characters, in a moment of inattention it is easy to forget which alphabet one is looking at. The Cyrillic lower case "f" can look a lot like the Latin  lower case "op". Such mistakes happen. You would have to examine the original record to be sure.

Re: How to correct error in Vilnius Ghetto List? #holocaust #lithuania

Russ Maurer
 

Amira,

You have misunderstood this record. It is from a census of those who were alive in the Vilna ghetto in May 1942 (as part of a country-wide census at that time). His listing implies nothing about his fate, although, needless to say, most of those listed were later killed. I am glad to know that your relative was a survivor.

Re: Landau family 18-19th centuries #poland

sfalkjd@...
 

Isak:  We have corresponded before about LANDAU family(ies).   Stanislaus (Salomon) LANDAU (1822-1898) was a son of Gerson LANDAU (ca.1796-1860) and Dobra (Carolina) KOHN of Czestochowa.  From my review of index records of Czestochowa, I believe that Gerson's parents were Marek LANDAU and Rochla LANDAU.  Presumably, Marek and Rochla were born in the 1770s (or a bit earlier).  I have not been able to get further back.

Since you are descended from a Gerson LANDAU (d.1793) after whom this Gerson may have been named, I have thought there may be a connection, but I have not found it.

I am in contact with members of this family and their family has the story, as do many, that they are descended from the Noda b'Jehuda.

All the best,

Re: Central Death certificate DATABASE from ISRAEL in english is available? #israel

I believe the original poster was seeking a Central Death Certificate database in Israel in English not seeking burial places.

As far as I am aware there is no such database.

Re: Belarus SIG #Belarus Where is Strez and Ekaterinoslaw... #belarus

Carol Perloff
 

My grandfather, David Benenson, and his father, Schneer Zalmen Avrum Joseph Benenson, were from Ekaterinoslav. I know of all my grandfather's siblings, but nothing about his cousins through his father. Have you done any research on Ber Benenson that might lead us to connect? I've recently learned of a Boris Benenson who had some kind of relationship with my grandfather David. Was there a Boris in your family?

Thank you,
Carol Benenson Perloff

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the Jewish Gen Facebook page #ukraine #yizkorbooks

Bruce Drake
 

“Iziya’s Story,” an except from the Yizkor book of Bilhorod-Dnistrovs'kyy (Akkerman), Ukraine, is exactly what it says it is: a story that the namesake of the title is telling to a group of people of the horrors he had survived, unlike his family and others from his town. The writer of his chapter called it “a shocking testimony, drenched in the blood of tortured Jews, who even on the threshold of death preserved their dignity.” He punctuates Iziya’s story with descriptions of his demeanor as he tells it — Iziya’s face went “red and a tremor went through his body” when he spoke of how his mother saved him from death as she lost her own life.

At one point, “Iziya drank some water and stopped talking for a short minute. The horrors rose again before his eyes, sweat covered his face. How great the will of life, the courage and the power of struggle for existence of a young Jewish boy. At the table Iziya's son was sitting, looking like his grandmother who had remained there. This will not happen to him; he is living now in his own country.”

Re: Looking for information on Israel Jacob Wainer and Rebecca Gilgore (Zhitomir/Zhytomyr) #ukraine

I am very grateful for the information and suggestions that have been shared abouthe family in the US. As mentioned, I am primarily seeking information on the family in Ukraine and not the US. However, if information can be located in the US naturalization records confirming the original name of the family, it would be helpful for research on the family's roots in the Ukraine and Russia. Please let me know if I can clarify further.
