Re: manifest markings #general

Hello,
I have read the great article on the ships passengers' listsmanifest markings
related to immigration and naturalization. The address of the article:
http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/Manifests/name/ I have a question - in this
article it is stated that the handwritten note 2271 refers to the Brooklyn District
court for naturalization. On my great-uncle's manifest the numbers appear to be
1600 or 1600C, so are on some other passengers on that manifest. He had arrived
from Bremen to Philadelphia in 1911, landing verifications are dated in 1921 and
1927(i think) Can somebody help me with the meaning of these numbers? I can provide
attachment with manifest image per request, but I am not able to attach it to the
forum post. I don't have any other information about him besides the manifest and
subsequent manifest of another great-uncle (his brother) who have arrived 3 yrs
later. On that latest manifest the address for original person is stated as New
Haven, Ct (or so I read >from manifest).

Thank you in advance
Regards
Yulia Golod

Re: David R. Berman - Browning & King Men's Clothing Store, New Haven, CT: Community Books #general

Dear Joyce

If you are looking for families in the bigger cities (and some of the smaller ones
too) a good place to look is for a community book about the city. An excellent
source of information about such books is one the iajgs.com site of the
International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies. Hal Bookbinder & Joan
Rimnon put this together for the 2000 IAJGS summer seminar. Go to iajgs.com and
click on North American Community Books and click on CT. One such book appears:
Jews in New Haven, pub by the Jewish Historical Society of New Haven. 1978. You
can probably get this book through inter library loan >from your local public
library. There may also be an industrial directory for this town. The N H public
library reference librarian may also be able to help with this. Sometime businesses
of many years ago are still there but I looked for them on "switchboard" and don't
find them. I would also ask the reference librarian for the name of the N H
historian who ought to know something about the store and its owners. The local
newspaper(s) would certainly have information about the store. Ask the ref
librarian about this as well.

If you are really serious, the business record in the State Capital would have
information on the store and its owners. If you want to get imaginative, perhaps
the local paper would run an article for you similar to your posting here. I am
sure that there are people who know the answers for your questions locally,
possibly the former owners and/or their descendants.

I am seeking information regarding David R. Berman and the Browning & King Men's
Clothing Store in New Haven=, CT in connection with my father, Isidor Wilder who
came to the US >from Vienna, Austria through Southampton, England. On the ship
manifest it stated that he was going to David R. Berman in New Haven, CT.Through
my research on Ancestry.com I learned that David R. Berman was born on 3/17/1893
and died on 1/26/1985. His last address was shown as 1508 Boulevard, New Haven
CT 06511.

JOWBR currently has in excess of 1.3 million records >from 45 countries.

The only way we can keep track of what records are in JOWBR and what
records are still needed is to require submissions to include complete
cemetery or cemetery section records. To see which cemeteries and
cemetery sections are already included in JOWBR, please see
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm

For more information on how to submit data and photos, please see

Aubrey Woolf JOEL #southafrica

Jessica Leschnikoff <jessica@...>
 

Dear members,

Having got to several brick walls in recent days, I'm seemingly facing
another one. I am trying to find out the parents of my great uncle Aubrey
Woolf Joel born in 1903 South Africa and died in Jo'burg in 1982. He was
married to my great aunt Barbara Pulvermacher. I have lots of info on
Barbara (who I knew) but hardly anything on Aubrey. >from my other great
aunt's book:

"Aubrey was for many years manager of Harris Hats factory in Johannesburg
(some 40 years, I believe!) until he decided he had had enough, and retired.
He made no use of the fact, but does come >from the well known Joel family;
also his mother was an excellent pianist who studied with Clara Schumann in
her youth."

And that, as they say, is it! Unfortunately, my South African family are
disinclined to help me in my research, and since they live in Cape Town,
they are not in the vicinity of Johannesburg, where Barbara and Aubrey would
have been buried. In fact, I don't even know if they were buried.

I have a strong feeling that the Joel family that my great aunt was
referring to in her book was the Randlord family that included Woolf Joel
and (by marriage) Barney Barnato. I have googled these Joels, but haven't
found a comprehensive family tree for them. The One World Tree on ancestry
does include a few of them but isn't that extensive: I suspect that not all
children >from marriages shown are included.

If anyone could suggest anything, I'd be most grateful. Email me off list
if you would like to contact me directly Jessica@...

Thanks,

Hi,
I have a two-page letter (or, possibly, two one-page letters sent

My Grandmother's family lived in Parichi (near Shchedrin) in the
Belarus region of Russia. She emigrated to the US in July 1913.

I've posted the pages on Viewmate.

Jewish records for L'viv - since when & until when? #ukraine

HelenieIrit
 

Hello genners,

Am a new comer to this SIG. So, please, bear with me.

I was told, that in the archives there are Jewish records for L'viv [Lvov,
Lwow, Lemberg] >from 1801, and already researched them.
According to the FHLC there are Jewish Congregation records since 1791.

How far can I go back with researching L'viv?
Are there really 1791-1800 Jewish BMD/vital records in the Central State
Historical Archives ?

And for the other end: are there any accessible records for 1939-1942 in
L'viv archives [except those in the USC !]?
I know about the "100 years old" Law.
[I know about what there is at Holicaust Museums].

Thank you,
