New Member Introduction - ENGLANDER, ENGLISH #austria-czech

Madeleine J. English <madelanie5@...>
 

I am a new member of JewishGen. My name is Madeleine Jean ENGLISH. I live
in Sacramento, (State Capitol) California, USA. I have been doing genealogy
research for 5 years; however, this is my first attempt at researching my
Jewish line.

My native language is English. Unfortunately, I do not speak any other language.

I have varying levels of skill in using a computer. I am expert in some
software programs, probably intermediate in using the computer the internet.
However, I am a novice in researching my Jewish genealogy.

My great grandparents were: Philipp ENGLANDER b? d 1920's (before 1928) in
Presov, Czechoslovakia, m - 31 May, 1883 in Hungary
His wife: Helene STRAUSS b? d 1920's before 1928 in Presov, Czechslovakia.

They had the following children:
M = male F = female

M 1) my grandfather (everyone called him "Pa")
Jacob Paul ENGLANDER (abbreviated to "ENGLISH" upon arrival in USA)
b 10 May 1864 in Koshauer, Austria-Hungary
d 19 Jan 1960 in Santa Cruz, California, USA
m 1: Daisy ?
m 2: Elsie Betty NEHF (my grandmother)

M 2) Armin ENGLANDER
b ? d ?

F 3) Emma ENGLANDER
b 1872 d 28 Jan 1964 Bratislava, Czechslovakia
mar: Adolph Schwartz 1907

M 4) Joseph ENGLANDER (abbreviated to "English" upon arrival in USA)
b ? d ?

M 5) Bela ENGLANDER
b ? d ?

M 6) Eugene ENGLANDER
b ? d ?

F 7) Hermine ENGLANDER
b ? d ?

F 8) Anna ENGLANDER
b 1867 d 1932 Vienna, Austria - burried in Austria

I have a "little" more information on marriages/spouses/children, etc of
Pa's siblings if anyone is interested or needs more detail to determine
whether or not they may be able to assist me.

My primary research goals now are to find out more about my grandparents,
their family lines, and lives.

Family names and towns I am researching are:

ENGLANDER - Presov, Czechoslovakia
STRAUSS - Presov, Czechoslovakia
SCHWARZ - Presov, Czechoslovakia
SCHWARZ - Kosice, Czechoslovakia
LUSTIGUE - Munich, Germany
KALING-SWHWARZ - Laci, son of Emma was a political leader against the Czech.
communists Presov, Czechoslovakia which caused 2 years
improsinment - lived in Bratislavia - immigrated to Munich,
W. Germany, where he died
WEINBERGER - Kosice, Czechoslovakia - Hermine - married Ignacz HORA
- Stephen and Julius sons of Emma ENGLANDER-SCHWARZ (Adolf)
Kosice, Czechoslovakia - changed their name to HORA to avoid
anti-Semitic persecution of Hitler - Survived Nazi concentration
camp.
VOTRUBEC - ?, Switzerland (possibly Zurich) Jirina - married to Stephen
HORA, above.

I would be happy to provided upon request.
