Dear fellow Galitzianas,

Around the turn of the last century the husband often came to America first
and sent money to the family in Galicia.

How was this money forwarded?

Thanks

Re: New Gedenkbuch for Germany #general

Irene Newhouse <einew@...>
 

I emailed the informational address given on the URL recently posted
regarding the updated Gedenkbuch for Germany. [The previous, 2-volume
edition covered only the territory in post-war Germany. The new, 4-volume
edition also covers regions that were Germany during WWII, but are now other
countries]. In addition to ordering information, which has already been
posted, I asked about the availability of a CD version. I was told that when
one buys the 4 volumes, a CD is included. At present, you must buy the paper
edition to get the CD, but they plan to make the CD available by itself in 2
to 3 months. People with limited space may wish to wait.

Another Translation Request: Hebrew to English #germany

Brian Stern <brians99@...>
 

Hi All,
Thanks to all who responded to my previous translation request. The
consensus was the name reads: Menachem BR Reuven.

I have another Hebrew to English translation request. I have two brief
phrases >from a eulogy delivered in 1930 in Bruchsal by BezirksRabbinner Dr.
Grzymisch. The scans are at this link:

http://home.earthlink.net/~brians99/speiereulogy/selmaspeiereulogy.html

Is it obvious why these two phrases would be stated in Hebrew rather than
German? Are they biblical references?

I'll update the web page at the bottom once I receive a few replies. Thanks,

Brian Stern Lexington, KY <brians99@...>

Finding data of Jewish soldiers in WWI #germany

wlfrank <wlfrank@...>
 

A question is posed by Herbert KAUFMANN regarding data of a "collateral ancestor,"
Joseph HAGEDORN, who is listed on a war memorial in Germany with his date of
death.
Does anyone know of a list that gives the units to which such persons belonged and
their ranks and birth dates?

The Answer: Check the book "Die Juedischen Gefallenen des Deutschen Heeres, Der
Deutschen Marine und der Deutschen Schutztrupppen (1914-1918), Ein Gedenkbuch"
published by Reichsbund Juedischer Frontsoldaten, 1932.

Herein is what we learn about Josef HAGEDORN: born June 28, 1897 in
Padberg-Giershagen, died on March 20, 1917, served in 2. Ga. Schuetz Battalion

LDS films of Vienna Jewish records #austria-czech

Bob Lenk
 

Several months ago Henry Wellisch wrote that he had noticed several
additions on the Family History (Mormons) website on Vienna Jewish
records. I have had a chance to look at some of the new records. Here
are some interesting things I found.

1) The item listed as:

"Matrikel der Juedischen Gemeinde 1826 - 1938 (Register of the Jewish
Community) now includes 380 films:

- 111 films, published in 1980. These are the copies of
birth/marriage/death registers >from the city archives, which have
been available for years.

- about 87 films, published in 2004. These are the original
birth/marriage/death registers >from the IKG. Actually, there seem
to be some missing - more details in a separate posting.

- 14 films of "Proklamationen" >from 1889 to 1937. I haven't looked
at these.

- 9 films of "Versöhnungsbuch", "Scheidungsbuch", and
"Übergetretene". I haven't looked at these.

- 139 films of "Geburtsanzeigen" (birth announcements) >from 1893 to
1919. I haven't looked at these. These must be considerably less
dense than the birth registers, which contain the same years in
about 14 films).


2) Also, I have looked at one film each >from items:

"Kartei zu den Matriken der Israelitischen Kultusgemeinde,
1810- 1938, Gauamt fuer Sippenforschung" (Card index of registers
of the Jewish community, District office for Race research)

and

"Matrikel 1830 - 1938" (Jewish Community records) 5 films, A-B

These appear to be the same set of records (I don't understand why
the 5 films are listed separately - and I don't know if they are
duplicates or different cards). They are index cards which generally
list a birth, marriage, or death recorded in the registers. These
cards include the index number >from the register, plus much of the
relevant information >from the actual record. As a bonus, some of the
marriage records list all the children >from the marriage on the back.
Most of the records I found are >from the 19th century; a few are from
the Nazi era. Not much in between. The records are far from
complete. This can be a useful way of finding family members by name
rather than date.

These cards are clearly not designed specifically for the IKG. The
include a space for "getauft" (baptism date), in addition to birth,
marriage, death, and burial. In one case I found a Nazi-era record
for one of my relatives (>from an inter-marriage) with this space
filled out, plus various other notations apparently intended to show
him as a gentile.


3) Finally, regarding the item

"Matrikel 1870 - 1914"

I looked at this film years ago. It is a small set of circumcision
records that was not useful to me. There are also a bunch of
Protestant records on item 2 of the same film.

ERLICH arrival in U.S. circa 1941 #austria-czech

Steckelmacher Claude <claude.steckelmacher@...>
 

Dear Siggers,

I am trying to find out, unfortunatelly without success, how and when
members of my family, namely ERLICH Josef, his wife LAMM Martha and their
daughter ERLICH Elisabeth arrived on the American Continent.

All I know is that they where living in Vienna, on Westbahnstrasse, Wien
VII, left Austria for Belgium (Brussels and Antwerp) and then went to
Portugal. They arrived most probably in New York in February 1941 on a
Portuguese freighter that carried only 7 couples. I believe it was called
"Pinto".

I cannot trace on the net the slightest detail regarding their arrival.

Could someone help me ? Many thanks beforehand.

Dear Genners,

I have recently discovered that my maternal grandmother (Esther
Borziansky) was born in Kamenets-Podolskiy (1878) and that my
grandparents (Esther and Hyman Ouzner) married at Winnitza District,
Kamenets-Podolsk (August, 1897). Can anyone tell me whether I have any
chance of obtaining records of these occasions? If so, how I may obtain
them and how much it's likely to cost me??!!

Following my earlier posting in reply to Claude
Steckelmacher's query, I have received the following
information: the on-line historical New York Times for
1940 - 1943 has a regular shipping news column.

The Serpa Pinto arrived New York >from Lisbon on: Dec
28, 1940; March 30, 1941; June 23, 1941; Dec. 26, 1941
and June 25, 1942 - all with 600 to 900 passengers.
The ship also arrived in Baltimore on Oct. 11, 1942
with 300 passengers and in Philadelphia on Jun 24,
1943 with 188 passengers.

There is no mention of any other ship arriving in New
York in this period with the name "Pinto" other than
the Serpa Pinto.

A shipping expert suggests getting the
soundex-microfilm for passenger lists 1902-1943 from
FHL, find the date and the ship [Soundex for ERLICH is
probably E642]. Once one find ERLICH's ship and date
one must get the FHL film for the proper ship's
manifest.

This Jewishgen list has the FHL film numbers for all
New York arrival microfilms:

Part way down is: Index, 1902 - 1943

Index to Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at New
York, NY July 16, 1902 - December 31, 1943

Soundex card index. 755 microfilms.

Then, there is this list for the passenger manifests
themselves:

http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/PassLists/NewYork1930.html

Hopefully we will find the ERLICH although there is a
big discrepancy between Claude's information of 7
couples and the data above which suggests 600
passengers - perhaps it was a bit of Viennese humour,
when the ERLICH wrote to their relatives about their
*luxurious* transatlantic sea trip.
