Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Seeking Information on Anna KATZ - Brooklyn, NY - Thank you all! #galicia


Joyce Eastman
 

I wanted to thank everyone who responded to my original e-mail seeking
information about Anna Katz, who was noted on my uncle's request for
immigration in Vienna, Austria in 1938 as his "aunt" living in Brooklyn, NY
- previously unknown to any of us in our WILDER family. It now appears
from information received >from the many people who replied to my
inquiry, that Anna Katz (born Honig recte Wilder) is in fact the sister of
my paternal grandfather, Salomon Wolf Wilder. I am in the process of
gathering more documentation >from IKG-Wien regarding Anna Katz as
well as her daughter Hesie, who both resided in Vienna, Austria prior to
their departure for the US in 1920. IKG-Wien has been an invaluable
resource in the past to find out more about my paternal grandparents
and their family by providing documentation not only of their existence,
but also about the fate they met during the Holocaust.

Many thanks to all of you for your diligence and the information you
provided, and a special thanks to Barbara Zimmer for the extensive
information she provided to me that will definitely assist me with my
inquiry to IKG-Wien.

These digests are an invaluable resource, and the people who read them
are a great help in finding information that you might never have found
on your own.
