My name is Hazel Boon and this is my first time posting on this
mailing list. I am trying to help someone >from my Synagogue find
information about two family lines. I should add that my family is
from Galicia (now Ukraine) and Poland so I have no experience withresearch in the Czech Republic. Hopefully someone here will be able to
point me in the right direction.
Carl SCHWARZ and his wife Amelia were born in Slany. My guess is that
they were born abt 1880. They had 7 children all born in Slany. Carl,
Amelia and most of the children were murdered in the holocaust. At
least one of the children survived. He was Frank SCHWARZ b.Nov 16,
1903. Frank married Anna POPPER b.July 26, 1913.
Anna's parents were Rudolf and Berta POPPER born in
Pilsen as was Anna.and her sister Blanche. Anna and Carl had a
daughter, Eva, born in Prague November 11, 1938. The family was able
to escape to Canada in 1939.
What information am I likely to find and where would I find it. Eva's
daughter is taking our synagogue's tour to Poland, Prague & Budapest
this fall and hopes to get some information about her family prior to
Thank you in advance for all help and guidance.
