Family HERMAN in London, New York and South Africa #general

Daniel Gleek
 

I'm searching for descendants of brothers Sam and Solly HERMAN.
Thy were the sons of Harris and Sarah HERMAN of London.

Sam HERMAN (1879-1935) married Leah in London.
They are believed to have moved to Brooklyn, NY, with their kids:
Solly (1902), Johnny (1904), Abraham (1906) and Martha (1909).

It is possible Solly married a Mary and Johnny married a Celia.
However I have no other information.

Please reply privately and only if these people are on your tree!

Thank you,

Seeking Sofia KUPCHIK from Odessa, Russia #general

Daniel Gleek
 

Dear Genners,

I am seeking the descedants of Sofia nee KUPCHIK >from Russia.

Sofia was born in about 1915 - so she would now be 100!
She lived close to Nikolayev and Jerson, near Odessa.

Her father was called Nachum (born 1890 approx).
Sofia's siblings emigrated to England and Argentina in c1910.
But she and her parents are thought to have remained in Russia.

There are many Anglicised variations for the spelling of Kupchik,
eg Kooptchick and Cupchik.

If any of these names pop up on your tree, please get in touch!

Thank You,

My grandfather disappearing #general

Sara Lynns
 

My paternal grandparents emigrated >from the Ukraine in 1904. My father and
his siblings were born here.

I found my grandparents on the census. However, at some point, my
grandfather was not listed. In talking to a relative, she said - he disappeared.

Any suggestions to how to find out what happened? i.e. did he move back to
the Ukraine??

Thanx for your help

GITLIN family from Lithuania (maybe Romania?), later South Africa #romania

G Sles
 

Greetings,

Any help finding records for these GITLINs will be appreciated.

Barney (Dov Ber) GITLIN was born circa 1875, a grandson says in Lithuania, but
I wonder if in Romania. Dov Ber was the son of Menachem Yitzhak GITLIN, who is
thought to have remained in Europe.

We are looking for Dov Ber's birth record and Menachem Yitzhak's death record.

Barney emigrated to South Africa, where he lived until his death in 1943. His
wife, my relative, was Rachel (Rae) SOLOMON, born in Falticeni, Romania. We don't
know for sure when or where they married, but it wasn't in Lithuania. Rae was in
London at least until 1901 and probably until after the Boer War ended in 1902. A
grandson thinks the marriage was in South Africa. They settled in Durban.

The Durban, SA, synagogue records >from the early 1900s are no longer in existence,
which is unfortunate, because I was hoping to find information there.

I have looked unsuccessfully for the birth of Dov Ber GITLIN and the death of his
father Menachem Yitzhak GITLIN in the Lithuanian database on JewishGen and on
LitvakSig. I have also looked in the JG Romanian database. Am I missing something?

I'm posting this message to the relevant SIGs: Litvak, Romanian, South African.

Please respond privately if you have any leads, suggestions or records.

Thank you.

Searching Solomon REICHSELIGMAN #general

Angie Elfassi
 

Hi,

I recently came across some exciting news about a member of my REICHS(Z)ELIGMAN
branch.

It would appear that Shlomo/Solomon b. abt 1838 REYKHZELIGMAN also
REICHSELIGMAN, (son of Yosel), >from Kaunas left Lithuania with his wife -
Tsippa (b.1844) for the US after 1888.

On 1888 Kaunas census they have two daughters: Ita aged 20 and Dobra aged 18.

On 30th April, 1896 Solomon became naturalised in Baltimore, MD. Witnessed by
Julius WEINBERG. Solomon was a bleacher in Baltimore living at 1202 St. James.

In 1904 his wife Tsipa, sometimes registered at Zippa, died in Kings County, NY
at 60 years old. Strangely enough on the death certificate is says: Aippa
REICHSELIGMAN death date 27 Dec 1904, Spouse's name: Cardian REICHSELIGMAN!

In 1910 census Solomon was living at Brooklyn Ward 16, Kings, New York with his
daughter Dora and son-in-law Aaron GOLDBERG, two children: Sadie (16) and
Jessie (9). Also in the house is Annis BRONASLOWA aged 19.

Questions:
1. Julius WEINBERG - witness on naturalisation - is he likely to be a
relative of Solomon?
2. What is a bleacher?
3. Where are the family in 1900?
4. And most important of all, is there anyone on this list that is related
to this family? Descendants of Sadie or Jessie GOLDBERG?

I would like to thank Linda Kelly for all the help she has given me in this
research.

Regards.

Dorsten unterm Hakenkreuz--SITE CITE #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Thank *you*, Lin, for bringing our attention to this superb web site:

http://www.dorsten-unterm-hakenkreuz.de/

There is so much history yet to be told about the rise of National
Socialism in towns and counties all over Germany. This is how it can be
done. The site is an on-line journal of sorts, with contributions by all
sorts of writers, >from Dorsten natives to current residents to renowned
historians (Dr. Hans Mommsen!).

The proprietor and his collaborators deserve thanks and encouragement.
Spread the word.

I don't know if it is an online version of a newsletter or
what. I used the google translator to translate the article,
which appears to be factual. It seems like a good source of
information about German relatives/ancestors who came from
this area during the Nazi period.
I am just not sure what the viewpoint is of the publisher,
since the Facebook page of this publication has a lot of Nazi
photos etc. Is it just covering history?

Czernowitz Birth, Marriages and Death Indexes (1850-1929) #general

Daniel Horowitz <daniel@...>
 

My dear Geneafriends

The Czernowitz volunteers group just finished transcribe all Birth,
Marriages and Death Indexes between 1850 and 1929 and they ara available
to search at
http://microtarget.com/czernowitz/CzernowitzBMDindex.htm

This work was not possible without the incredible help of the volunteers
listed on the page, so please scroll down and read their names.

But the work is not done. We are now in the (possible) last phase
transcribing voters, members and other small list of people. I say
"possible" because I found other possible list of people from
Czernowitz in another repository, so volunteers are always welcome.

I hope you all will find many records to bring more light to your
research as I already did.

Best regards

It is edited by a journalist and historian. In the 1980ies, the auther,
Wolf Stegemann, had edited some books about the time of the Third Reich in
Dorsten; the online publication is and updated version of the older books.

I am just not sure what the viewpoint is of the publisher,

Yes, of course. In Germany you are only allowed to show the swastika
etc. when you are covering history for educational purposes.
