searching for ship manifest #ukraine

mdey13@...
 

According to my grandfather's, Harry GOMBERG, naturalization he
arrived in New York >from Liverpool on August 3, 1904. I understand
that the date may well not be correct, but I did search for ships
arriving on August 3 on the Stephen Morse site. There is a ship
that landed in New York >from Liverpool that day. When I look up
the manifest on the Ellis Island site, there is only one page
with just two names. Should there be more pages that may be
elsewhere or never scanned?

Shermans in St Marylebone c 1911 #unitedkingdom

Sandy Crystall
 

Hello-
I am looking for descendants of this Sherman family that lived in St.
Marylebone in 1911 and at least shortly thereafter.

In 1902, Abraham Sherman married Milly Keleskie in Whitechapel,
London. Between the years 1903 and 1915, sons Jack, Sam, Reuben,
Casriel, and Bernard were born. (I have the 1911 census that includes
Abraham and Milly and sons Jack and Sam).

Jack immigrated to the U.S. c. 1924 and may have ended up in Los
Angeles, California. (I am working on locating records for him and any
descendants.) I have no additional information on the other brothers
and I am not sure what more recent information is available.

If this family is familiar to you, please let me know (or provide
advice about other more recent sources of information.)

Thank you!

Tribute to Christine Usdine and her Art #unitedkingdom

Arlene Beare
 

I was really distressed when I learned that Christine had passed away. She
was like a close friend in spite of the fact that we never met personally.
A lot has been written in the past week and all of it true. Her mother was
the sole surviving member of her family who perished in the Holocaust and so
Christine wanted to make a fitting memorial to all her lost relatives. She
has left a legacy that is invaluable.

She was a graduate of the Institute of Eastern languages of Paris ( Russian
and Chinese) but told me she had forgotten a lot of her Chinese.
She worked for her father who owned an big industrial foundry and had her
own Art workshop there.
In 1981/ 1982 she studied Art foundry lost wax process in different places
in the USA( Northern Michigan University of Marquette, in Indiana, Texas and
New Mexico.)

from 1987 she ran her own little foundry in a very touristic medieval
village Perouges, north of Lyon. http://www.perouges.org/default.html .
She specialized in Jewish art but once she started doing the translations
no longer had much time for her art.

She sent me a link to a video of her work and you may be interested in
looking at it. She sold most of her sculptures to Jewish Americans

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dT6Kzbn7M4

May she rest in peace. I shall miss her.

SAEVITZ, SAYAVITZ, SAYEVITCH, SAYERS and other variant spellings #unitedkingdom

mary@...
 

While trying to find out more about my father-in-law and his family I looked
at the Ancestry registers for schools in London (currently indexed for
1840-1911). I had no success in finding any of the family, and can only
assume that either the relevant school registers are yet to be included on
the site, or that they have been destroyed, or (highly unlikely) that the
children did not go to school. The names I was searching for are those of
the children of Nathan Saevitz and Rebecca (Bessy) nee Troshansky who appear
to have emigrated to London c 1905/6: Herschel (Harry) b Kremenchug,
Ukraine, c1902; Louis b Kriukov, Ukraine, c 1904; Joseph, b Stepney, 1906;
Barnett, b Stepney 1908; Esther b Stepney 1916; Gertie, c Stepney 1917.

In looking through the registers I found a Jacob Sayavitz who was born on 16
August 1893, son of Abram, address 120 Nathaniel Buildings, Tower Hamlets.

I also have DNA information relating to the Saevitz line (who, incidentally,
were Levites). Nathan was born in Romny in Sumy Oblast, Ukraine, c 1877. I
believe (but have yet to prove) that his parents were Movsha Avram Hirsch
Gillels Saevitz and his wife Esther Haya.

I'd be very pleased to hear >from anyone with information on the above Jacob
or his father as it is possible that he is a cousin of the above. Any
information on the Saevitz line in Romny would be very gratefully received.

Thank you.

Staff at Kitchener Camp #unitedkingdom

Robert Fraser
 

Dear Readers -

As many readers will know, two members of the (UK) Jewish
Lads Brigade were instrumental in organising activities at
Kitchener Camp >from 1939 onwards. They were Jonas May and
his brother Phineas. I believe that they later became
officers in the Pioneer Corps. I have read much about their
work and about the Camp generally, including a copy of the
Journal that they produced in the camp.

But mention is frequently made in the material I've read of
a third member of the staff: M Banks. I can't find out
anything about him - not even his given name.

I suppose there might be documents in archives or
repositories such as the Wiener Library in London or the UK
National Archives, but as much as I can read online makes no
mention. I'd love to know a bit about him. Can anyone
assist?

My connection is that my late parents spent time in
Kitchener Camp.

Seaching for family MODELL from Zhitomir #ukraine

Robert Hill
 

I am researching my wife's family of birth, MODELL. I've got pretty
good basic information about them here in the US, but am looking for a
way to trace back to Ukraine.

There were three brothers who came to the US >from Zhitomir -- Henry
MODELL, b. ~1872, immigrated ~1904; David MODELL, b. ~1886, immigrated
~1906, and Samuel MODELL, b. 1883, immigrated ~1908.
All three are buried in the same cemetery in Flushing, NY. All three
have their Hebrew names on their tombstones -- in two cases the
patronymic is Moshe, in the third case it is Moshe Aharon. In the case
of Samuel, his immigration record lists his nearest relative in his
place of origin as his father Moses MODELL. So the strong likelihood is
that that is the name to pursue.

There is family lore, but no evidence, of other siblings who remained in
Ukraine and did not immigrate. The first names of these siblings are
Abraham and Peter.

I would be grateful for any information or advice about how to trace
these MODELLs back in Zhitomir. I'm pretty good at US genealogy, but am
a complete novice at Ukrainian records.

Thanks in advance -
Robert Hill
