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

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.
Best,
Gay Slesinger

Searching SOLOMON REICHSELIGMAN #lithuania

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.

family name Esner #lithuania

Meri-Jane Rochelson <rochelso@...>
 

I want to thank everyone on the listserv who wrote back to me with
suggestions. Bette (no last name) did a huge amount of research in a
very short time, and I think I now have a link to the original
connection in Neustadt/Naishtot, Lithuania, my grandmother's birthplace.

When I looked more carefully at the letter I mentioned in my original
post, I saw that Moishe Esner was my grandmother's nephew, not her
cousin. Bette found the name of his father, Jacob Esner, for me. Jacob
married a second wife in New York, but Moishe (later Morris)'s mother
(presumably my grandmother's sister and thus my great-aunt) would have
been Jacob's first wife. Seymour and Bell were Morris's children. I
will now search the All Lithuania Database (thank you for the reminder,
Joel Ratner!) and other sources, to see what I can find.

All good wishes,
Meri-Jane

Need help finding Grandma's family #romania

Anne Kenison
 

Dear fellow Romanian researchers,

My Romanian grandmother, Rebecca (Beckie) Bernstein, was born in
about 1885-1890. She stated in the only document I have found asking for
birth location that she was born in Galatz (Galati). My mother, her
daughter-in-law, says she believes Grandma lived in Jassy (Iasi).
Immigration-related documents record that Grandma stated that her last
residence before leaving Romania was Bucharest (Bucuresti). She sailed on
La Bretagne, arriving in New York on 04 April 1903. She married my Russian
grandfather Harry Weiner on 10 Nov 1909. Thereafter they lived on the Lower
East Side of Manhattan and raised 5 children, of whom my father was the eldest.
Later in life, they moved to the Bronx. She died on 10 May 1969.

She was said to be a twin. She may have had at least two brothers, David and
Hermann (Abraham?). Her father was Mendel/Max and her mother possibly Lilly
Schwartz.

You now know everything I know about her family data. While I have hit brick
walls with all my grandparents, she is the biggest mystery. Does anyone have
any suggestions on how to find out more about her family and background?
Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Dear listmembers!

Jaworow is the rajon (district) centre of Lviv oblast, 50 km to the west
from Lviv, stands on Shklo river. Now it is a nice green city, of a
half-village appearance, has approx 13,000 inhabitants, several old
churches, former townhall building.

The synagogue was founded there in 1658, old part of the city was
partly destroyed during WW2. The WW2 city ghetto was the central
among the surrounding cities, some people were sent there >from the
other places, ghetto inhabitants were in general destroyed in Dec 1942
(people were sent to Belzec).
