53825 Do you recognize?

3/19/2017 3:52 PM We are hoping that someone will recognize one or more of the subjects in these photos. They were taken in Manchester, England, between about 1904-1908 by Marks Edelson, born Mordechai Idelovich, whose family lived in and near Zemaiciu Naumistis, Lithuania. Marks was a professional photographer who was associated with the studio of Mrs. B. Goodman at 559 Strangeways, Manchester. Kindly contact me privately at Hilary2@aol.com.

Please can you let me know any dates of reg and death, names with patronymics of parents or surviving or pre-deceased husbands, children etc. if they exist.

Also any places or professions if they exist.

Thanks,
Leigh

3/15/2017 4:17 PM Please could you confirm the parents names with patronymics and maiden names?

Also, the exact date of registration and birth please of Iciek Berek STEINBERG.

Any other relevant places and professions?

Is there anything strange about this birth record? The parents don't seem to have married until after the birth, and to be honest the names were not what I was expecting. Is there an alias for Srul Litman, perhaps?

Thanks,
Leigh

53958 Sharing Document

3/15/2017 4:17 PM I am continuing research into various members of the EISENSTADT family and am currently concentrating on my great-great grandfather Abraham EISENSTADT.

I am aware from the Berlin phone directories online that for a number of years he lived at (or at least was contactable) at 40/41 Oranienburger Str - see first picture.

On a trip to Berlin a few weeks ago I noted from the Neue Synagogue exhibition that this building appeared to also be used by the Israelitische Union E.V. - see second picture.

I'm thus wondering whether anyone has any details as to what the Israelitische Union E.V. functioned as. It appears to be some sort of general welfare body but I'm especially curious as to understand the links Abraham EISENSTADT would have had with this.

Many thanks.

3/15/2017 4:16 PM I would like a translation of this birth record for Szmul Zwechaft. The JRI-Poland index record specifies a 'Year' of 1832, but then in the birth date column, lists a date of 2 Mar 1814. I'm especially interested in names, dates and relationships. Thank you very much.

3/15/2017 4:15 PM The ancestry.com index sounds like it's a marriage document, but it lists a child, Rosa, so it may be a birth certificate. The parents are Jette Simon and Benjamin Reinheimer. There is a child Rosa. I can't read the handwriting but I don't know if it's too small to read. I want to find out if this is indeed a "new found" child of my great-great grandparents Benjamin Reinheimer and jette Simon Reinheimer from Beerfelden, Hesse. Jette Simon was born about 1807 and died 11 August 1873. Benjamin Reinheimer was born in 1815 and it's unknown when he died. I'm wondering if this document indeed refers to my family. My email is lin2@cfl.rr.com Thank you. View the post with its 1 response
