Which is the town of "Zanzire, Poland"? #general

Roy Ogus
 

On the Ellis Island passenger list for a relative arriving in New York in
1920, he listed his former residence as "Zanzire, Poland."

Does anyone have any idea to which town this may refer? I had believed that
he had come >from one of the towns in western Belarus, such as Dyatlovo/Zhetel
or Novogorodok, but the ShtetlSeeker couldn't find anything nearby for the
town of "Zanzire".

Thanks for any help.

Adoption in Czarist Russia to escape conscription - need help! #general

Mel Werbach <mel@...>
 

My paternal greatgreatgrandfather, Chayim Mikhel, was born to Avraham and
his wife in 1824 in Bazaliya, Ukraine. Three years later, military
conscription for Jews was mandated, so - according to family lore - Avraham
arranged for the local VERBUKH family to legally adopt Chayim Mikhel to
avoid conscription. The results of recent DNA testing suggest that the
Verbukhs were not close relatives.

For many years, I have tried unsuccessfully to discover the correct family
line for Chayim Mikhel and his parents as adoption records, as well as any
earlier records, appear to have been destroyed. One family source stated
that Chayim Mikhel initially had the surname of HORNSTEIN - but this is
unconfirmed by any evidence.

I would love to trace my direct paternal line further back, but if I can't
do so, I would at least like to confirm the family story:

Did the legal adoption help to protect Chayim Mikhel >from conscription? If
so, does that mean he had at least one older (or younger) male sibling? Is
there a reference that explains how adoption was protective?

Any light that could be shed on this would be most appreciated.

Re: Finding possible Jewish family links #general

I have never seen a Jewish child named Shadrach, Meshack or Abednego.

Still most gratifying to find families keen to establish Jewish ancestry -
also a warning that "family legend is both the best and worst genealogical

From: Roger Lustig (GerSIG) <GerSIG.Research@...>
... Benjamin, Schadrach, Meschach/Meshack and Abednego are indeed
Old-Testament names. But the first of these is also a popular given name
among Gentiles in many countries, and the others are *not* commonly found
among Jews. The 1841 England census has almost 800 entries with given
name Shadrach or Shadrack, 150 Meshachs and almost 100 Abednegos. (Over
40,000 Daniels, for those keeping score.)

Looking through lists of Jewish names, I can't find a single instance of
any of those names. Ancestry.com offers over 3600 instances of Abednego,
all but a handful >from England, Wales, former British colonies and other
parts of the US. The exceptions are >from Sweden, Norway and one Reformed
Church baptism in Hungary. Same story for the 25000+ Shadrachs--in fact,
I don't see *any* exceptions there.

Levi (George HUMPHREY's middle name) is used by Jews, but also used to be
very popular in England and Scotland...

Seeking relatives of Felix WEIL, b Emmendingen, 1847 #germany

Reinhard Frenzel <reinhardfrenzel@...>
 

Hello Gersiggers,

Sponsors in Darmstadt are planning the installation of a "Stolperstein"
(stumbling block memorial) for Henriette OLLENDORF nee WEIL
(b Mainz, 04 Oct 1883) on May 30, 2014.

Henriette was the daughter of Felix called Philipp WEIL
(Emmendingen, 1847 - Mainz, 1931) and Karolina ARON (Worms, 1853
- deported 28 Sep 1942/"d" Terezin, 02 Dec. 1942).

In 1922 Henriette got married to (non-Jewish) ophthalmologist Dr. Gustav
Arthur OLLENDORF (1875 - Darmstadt, 1924). After 1933 Henriette was able
to teach English at the Schule der Israelitischen Religionsgemeinde
Darmstadt, right up to 1939 - at least.

If you happen to be related or know of someone who is, please contact
me privately at your earliest convenience.

Re: How to prove a girl to be Jewish ? #hungary

HungarianRoots
 

Dear Georges,

Gyorgyi is not a strange name for a girl. It is a well accepted Hungarian
female first name, the female version of George (György).
As she was born in 1932, her birth record in the civil registers would
clearly show his religion, so no need to look for a birth record in the
Jewish registers that are also available at the Central Office of the Jewish
community. I ran a fast check at the Budapest database and found some
Stekauers, some being Jewish, some being R. Catholic. Worth a try. (Budapest
had 14 districts back then so one would need to check all of these to find
the births.)

Hello,

A member of our French JGS wishes to prove that his grand-mother and/or
his great-grand mother was a Jew.
The grand-mother is called STEKAUER, first name Gyorgyi (strange given
name for a girl, isn't it ?) and is born December 19, 1932 in Budapest. I
suppose that there is no record of this birth in Jewish records ? but is
there a chance that we can find the ketouba of the marriage of her
parents, some time earlier, in Budapest ?

Thank you for your help
