Surnames: BANKO


Del Banco, Banco, Banko

Names have Sephardic Jewish origin.

Sephardi Jews is a general term referring to the descendants of Jewish settlers who trace their origins to the Israelite tribes of the Middle East, who lived in the Iberian Peninsula until the Spanish Inquisition.Many Sephardim (Spanish and Portuguese Jews) left the Iberian peninsula at the end of the 15th century and went to Europe (Bosnia, Chech republic, Austria,Hungary, Greece,...).
Many were victims of holokavst (second world war).Immigration to USA was a rescue.

Del-Banco was the most prominent banking family in the Republic of Venice during state's period of imperial supremacy in the 1400s. Abraham del Banco was involved in the establishment of the famous Venetian Banco Giro in 1619. A number of Jewish banks were established in Vienna during the 19th century, the most influential of which was Arnstein and Eskeles. This bank however was declared bankrupt in 1859. Weikersheim and Company and from 1821 Salomon Rothschild also established banks in Vienna. Jews participated in the foundation of the Niederoesterreichische Eskomptgessellschaft (1853) and the Kreditanstalt (1855), which made an essential contribution to the development of the Vienna stock exchange and extended international loan facilities, also investing in industry and railroads. Leading private banks in Hungary were of Jewish origin,

STEINMANN name also is of Jewish origin - Ashkenazi tribe.

In Bosnia (city Banja Luka) jews were under pressure at 19. century time frame when there was
pravoslav religion promoted and synagogues and cultural centre were shot down.) So at that time Jews immigrated also to America. Bosnian Jews were murdered in big number at nazi concentration camp Jasenovac.
Two-thirds of Hungarian Jewry was destroyed between 1941 and 1945.Between 1941 and 1944 Hungarian Jewry suffered losses in the tens of thousands.

There was only 1 Fannie Steinman around her age that lived in Philadelphia. This was to a Sam aka Samuel and Ray aka Rachael Steinman. In Census varius ages 1886+. There is a 1921 Naturalization Petition on Ancestry under Sam Steinman from Luber Russia listing 1 daughter Fannie born 10 July 1910 which is close to the SSDI DOB. Also there are military and other records for Sam. I would suggest checking the headstone for the father's name. Also if you are not in Phili, contact the Phili Free Public library for an Obit for Sam or Ray that may list Banko.
There is a certfication arrival card with Sams Petition for the ship arrival information. This should get you started. You may be able to get a marriage certificate for Fannie from one of the payfor sites.
