Re: Advice sought for finding family records #bessarabia

Dear Norman,

Here is what I suggest to you... and probably to many new researchers:

First of all Khotin was not in Romania in 1880s... >from 1812-1918 it was
part of Bessarabia Gubernia in Russian Empire. I understand why people
saying that it was in Romania - they probably lived in 1920s in that place,
and in 1920-1930s it was in Romania.

Secondly you gave limited information.. you probably know when your
relatives moved to America... that is important to know where to look for
information... for example, we have Business Directory of 1924... Are they
still in Khotin that year?
Also, do you know the names of parents of your Grandmother Chande (Anna)
Saltzman... We have information >from 1850s for town of Khotin, and you can
look at it.

In any case, I would suggest you to go to JewishGen.org and to the Databases
/ Complete List / Romania/Moldova and enter the last names of your
grandparents: Liptzen and also Saltsman... the type of Search should be
"Sounds Like"... and also if you can enter the second search (for that you
may need to donate some money) enter Khotin and Region: Bessarabia. If
you cannot enter Khotin - you can search without it, but will receive many
hits which are not >from that town...

Depending on what year they left Bessarabia, you could look into Voter's
List of 1906-07 - very important document, Business directory of 1924.

Also when you are searching for names, do not put "Exact" names, but only
"Sounds Like' or "Phonetically like, because we do not know exactly how they
were written in the records, and possible had several different ways. For
example Liptzen... It is possible that the name was Lifshin or Lipson (as
you have now)... these and many other similar names are possibilities for
your relatives. Same with other surnames, names.

I wish you great findings in the New Year.

-----------------------------
It has been several years since I began my quest to research my ancestors.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to get much information, but with new
records blossoming on this site, hopefully someone can help me.

My Grandfather Jossel Liptzen, Lipzin was born in Kupin Podolsky on
12/12/1882. His father was Nuta Liptzin, and my Great Grandmother was
Machia Wiceberg. He had a brother named Daniel Liptzen.

My Grandmother Chande (Anna) Saltzman was born in Chotin (Khotin) Romania,
on April 1880 or 1881. She married my Grandfather and lived in Chotin,
(Khotin) where my Father Isadore, Aunt Sarah, and Aunt Bessie were born.

That is all the information I have found, so I am hoping someone can help
find other records and information.

Thank you.

Jewish emigrants from Ortelsburg (Szcztyno) East Prussia (Poland) #germany

Des Petersen <desandrudi@...>
 

Hello,
I have been researching family MENDEL and their associated families
for many years. The various names have been posted on Jewish Gen [JGFF] for
some time, with no meaningful results.

My personal research has produced a great deal of results including
two people who according to these results are 2nd or 3rd cousins.
We can't however confirm this as none of us have any records to support it.

I have recently found a list of Jews >from this town and villages who
had their Citizenship revoked, as they were known to have left the
area and were thought to have emigrated. My hope is, by posting these names,
it may generate new information which may help with my further research.

Jews with citizenship revoked - Believed to have emigrated from

Street name in Detroit #general

Joan Rosen <jgrosen98@...>
 

Thanks to the many people who responded to my inquiry about a street
name in Detroit. A friend found a death certificate online for me, and
she thought the street name (where he died) looked like "Montealin"
(in very light print.)
Several respondents suggested "Montcalm," and if you look carefully,
you can see that "e" could have really been a "c" Also the "in" at
the end could really be an "m." Hence "Montcalm."
Thanks again to all who cared enough to respond, and to Jewishgen for
being there.

Joan Rosen asked about the Detroit street name Montealin.
This was (and still is) the correctly-spelled name of a street in
Detroit, according to my dim memory with Google's invaluable help.
You'll find (related to Detroit-area history): The French general,
Montealin, likewise fell; and his second in command was mortally
wounded. General Wolfe died on the field of battle, but he lived long
...

Looking for Ziman family #general

Shana Tova and Gmar Hatima Tova to everyone.

I am trying to help a friend reunite with his Ziman or Zeeman Family, Gerry
or Jerry son of Dr Charles of Chicago. Someone in the family is possibly
married to a Rabbi. The name was originally Zimanski.

Here they changed the name to Itai. They last saw each other about 45 years
ago here in Israel.

If someone reading this knows this family or can help find them we would be
very grateful.
Thank you

: Jewish family trees housed somehwere i in Israel? #general

Lin <lin2@...>
 

We are looking for a missing family tree.
My mother's first cousin, Anny HERZ, was in possession of a family
tree going back very far, researched by her father, Max HERZ >from Markt
Berolzheim, Germany. The cousin, Anny, is in her 90s and somewhat senile.
The family tree has been missing for a few years. She says when she moved
into the Hebrew Home for the Aged (she lives in the one on the Hudson
in the Bronx) >from Riverdale, Bronx, NYC, NY she thinks she sent the
family tree to Yad Vashem. (or that someone sent it there for her). I told
her that I think they are not a repository for family trees. We tried to
brain storm over the phone where it could be, but she kept going back to
she thinks its in Jerusalem.

When visiting Anny a few years ago, her niece looked all over Anny's
room at the Hebrew Home, and she does not think it is there.
I contacted an institute in NY which is affiliated with Leo Baeck and
they looked in their database and do not think the family tree is
housed in NYC at any of the Jewish institutions. However they were
not sure. I asked Anny what the tree might be called if it was at some
kind of institution. She said HERZ Stammbaum or HERZ Family Tree.

Does anyone have any ideas? This tree probably has generations going so
far back, that can never be replicated. All of our family came >from Germany,
and has only been in America since 1938-1940.

The niece told me in some cases the Stambaum went back to the 1600s. I
think much or all the research was done before Anny's father came to
America.

Thank you so much.

Re: Street in Detroit,Michigan #general

My girlfriend suggests Montcalm. It's a short street, and she grew up in
that area, so that's what immediately came to her mind. Unfortunately,
it's unlikely that any older buildings remain on Montcalm, because the
street's only about half a mile long, and it runs along the northern
edges of two new stadiums -- Comerica Field (where the Tigers play) and
Ford Field (where the Lions play).
