David LEVY, Lemberg c1866 - Help with parent name variations #general


Chris Amos <chrisaaaaa@...>
 

I have an ancestor David LEVY, he was naturalized with his family in Manchester
UK in 1906. He gave parents as Abraham and Minnie LEVY (had children with these
names) and a place of birth as Lemberg Austria/Hungary.

With a bit of searching and googling I found a birth record in
"Lwow Wojewodztwo/Ukraine" on JewishGen.org:

David Feb 1865 Abraham LOW and Mindel ROPISCHITZ.

from googling I get the definite impression LOW is a German form of Levy and
girls called Mindel are sometimes know as Minnie.

Am I a victim of over optimistic googling?

Now this is embarrassing.

Seems I had the wrong David..

Turns out it was a David Mordecai and Stametta after all, addresses tie up in
trade directories and UK certs. The Abraham, his son, I was following is
recorded in 1911 as Abramino (nearly)

May well be a dead end, Dad was Turkish, Mother Greek, kids born in Greece,
France and UK.

Thanks for the help

You do need to see this a a lead and not just a definite addition to your
family tree. So you need to get more confirming details such as date of
birth of the child, compared with David Levy's age in the UK (does he
appear in any census? It would certainly be on his naturalisation
certificate) and try to find details of his immigration, again with date.
Personally, I'd be hopeful.
