Does anyone have the comedian Ed WYNN in their tree?

I know that his fathers name was Leopold. I know that his mother's first
name was Minnie. I do not know what her maiden name was. I know that she was
from a Sephardic family.
I would appreciate any information that anyone has about Ed and Keenen
WYNN.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Kovel Yizkor book #general

NFatouros@...
 

Dear People,

In message #51, Merle Persky asked today (98/08/24) whether there is a
Yizkor book for Kovel. According to Zachary Baker's bibliography in the 1998
edition of ">from a Ruined Garden,
there are:

Kowel; sefer edut ve-zikaron le-kehilatenu she-alah aleha ha-koret [Kowel;
testimony and memorial book of our destoryed comunity]. Ed. E. Leoni-
Zoperfin. Tel Aviv; Former Residents of Kowel in Israel, 1959. 539 pp., ports.
(In Hebrew and Yiddish.)

Pinkes Kowel [Memorial book of Kowel]. Ed. B. Baler. Buenos Aires:
Former Residents of Kowel and Surroudnings in Argentina, 1951.. 511 pp.
ports., facsims. (In Yiddish.)

For information about where these books may be located there is a list
of libraries which have more than 25 Yizkor books in their collections, which
can be seen at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/ yizkor/

Also, I have found it convenient to save in a "desktop" folder lists of
Yizkor books held at Yale, UCLA, the Holocaust Centers in California and
Washington, in Florida Atlantic University, and at various other places,
including a few stores.

A few short lists showing the books' locations can be found by rummaging
through Jewishgen's message archives, using the word "Yizkor" in the search
engine there. More extensive listings can be found by using one of the major
search engines, such as Yahoo, and typing in "Yizkor," or even the name of a
university, in the search engine and clicking on the library button of that
university and then typing in "yizkor" or "memorial books" to search the
catalogue.

I hope this helps.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Searching Lilly JEANS nee LEWIS circa 1917, WA, OR, CA? #general

Qedetc <qedetc@...>
 

Dear GJenners,

Just a shot in the dark but I'm hoping to connect to family. Perhaps someone
might recollect or have knowledge of a Lilly (Lillie, Lillian) JEANS formerly
EDWARDS.
(b.1876, d 196?).

Last known locale (>from a will in 1917) was Monohan, WA, moved sometime between
April and October >from Issaquah, WA. Her nieces (now in their 80's)
recollect only that she was 'somewhere on the West Coast' during the 40's.

I have unsuccessfully searched death indexes and 1920 censi >from CA, WA and OR
under the name JEANS as well as the same states for 1900 under EDWARDS.
I believe she was married in 1897 to James EDWARDS in Los Angeles, CA and at
some later point to a Raymond JEANS. Rumor has it that she may have married a
third time.

An open search of the SSDI on Lilly (with variations) and her birth date lead
to no significant clues.

Any thoughts or suggestions greatly appreciated.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Don Yitzhak ABARBANEL, etc. #general

Nick Soodek <nick@...>
 

While this message is specifically for Rich Sinykin, who requested
information on a possible ancestor, ABARBANEL, I thought it might be of
interest to other genners. I looked up the name in a book that I have,
"Finding Our Fathers" by Dan Rottenberg. I was referred to the name
ABRAVANEL, where it states the following:
One of the oldest and most distinguished Spanish families. The German
scholar Herman Reckendorf maintained that the ABRAVANELs were direct
descendents of King David, through Zerubbabel, Hillel and certain Jewish
kings in Arabia. Jewish Encyclopedia and Encyclopedia Judaica have family
tree charts and biographies; also see JE article on Herman Reckendorf and
on "Coat of Arms," which includes the ABRAVANEL crest, as well as those
of the families ABARBANEL de SOUSA and ABARBANEL de VEIGA. LBIS (Rudolf
Simonis collection at the Leo Baeck Institute) has ABRABANEL family tree.
Also see M. Kayserling's Bibliotheca Espanola- Portugeza-Judaica
(strasbourg, 1890)p.6. Related to Lindo.
I have not seen this guidebook mentioned here and thought others might be
interested in knowing about it. This is an interesting resource to check
for possibly famous or noteworthy ancestors.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Does Louis=Liber? #general

Ury Link <uryl@...>
 

To the Moderator,
Sorry but my English is not so best ,so be kind to me to correct things that
you think it is not correct .
Thanks
Ury Link


Dear Jewish Genners,
To this discussion I think that it is not correct to connect the name Liber
to the name Louis. Normally the name Louis we connected with the name Lewy
(Lewis,Louis or L=L )but the name Lieber is not Lewy.
from the book : Get Mesudar . Eliezer Mintz Bilguria 1902 page 283 I take
over this text:
Liberman, is a nickname to Eliezer,Elazar,Yehuda and Matitja also Liber have
the same nicknames...... (all the names are first names)
In a comment give Eliezer Mintz this text: (in Rashi script)
Liberman. it mean a good man and the translation have nothing to do with the
name Eliezer or Elazar and the reasons that this name is chosen as a
nickname is the beginning with a Lamed ,but Eliezer don't begin with Lamed
he begin with Alef why to use the Lamed.? The Alef is not emphasized so we
called Eliezer or Elazar: Luser or Leiser and this is why we used the Lamed.
And why Yehuda as a nickname?. Lamed,Yud,Beth (Leib) are the same begin
letters as ( Yehuda ) Leib also with Lamed, Yud, Beth. Why Matitja he don't
mention.
Until here is what Mintz have written in his book, He mention also that
Liepman as a personal name have the same explanation as Liber and Liberman.
So I conclude that the name Liber is not the name Lewy.
Alexander Dietz in his book :Stambuch der Frankfurter Juden . F/m 1907 used
the same names .
It can be that the name Liber that derived >from Liberman have to do with
Lewy and why ? Jits Van Straten in his book : Joodse voornamen in Amsterdam
. Amsterdam 1966 . give the first names that Jewish used in records between
1669 and 1850 and the transcription in Yiddish or Hebrew. In this case a
document with the name Liberman used the name Levie. So it can be that Lewy
is Liber ,but I don't think so and What Mintz writ is more convincing.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Naturalization Records - 1960's #general

Ruffin R Cooper <rrcooper@...>
 

In response to Mr. Allan H. Rosen.

I believe that Naturalization records for New York are at the
NARA Northeast Region for the following:

Manhattan and Bronx to 1991
Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island to 1990 with index to 1977,
for years without an index you need an exact petition number.

They also hold records for Newark >from 1914 to 1982 with indexes
and Buffalo NY >from 1907 to 1966.

Their address is NARA; Northeast Region, 201 Varick Street, New
York, NY, 10014-4811

Enclose a check for $10.00 payable to National Archives Trust
Fund. I don't know about the requirement that they are dead, but,
you can call (212) 337-1300 and find a very helpful person
(live!) who will talk to you.

I have had personal success retrieving records and with helpful
telephone calls myself.
