Randy,
Could you outline your goals in GENI? Are you going to be locking/curating profiles so others can't go back and re-create the same issue?

Re: Germany Easing of Restoration of German Citizenship for Descendants of Nazi Persecution #Germany

David Cherson
 

Hi,
Personally I am glad to see Germany move further in reconciliation, etc., and I have always maintained that they are far ahead of Austria in this regard.  However I find it absurd and a little bit insulting to see Jews trying to claim German citizenship.  I can't help but think that there are two things that influence this "movement" and have very little to do with German reconciliation. One is how people view the current (US) administration (yes, "him") and their fears of the US going extreme right-wing (won't happen, we are still and will remain a democracy), and two not giving a thought to aliyah to Israel because of their dislike of Netanyahu, et.al.  Well they still engage in free and democratic elections in Israel (perhaps too many lol) and once you become a citizen you can vote.  I did and I have voted in past elections.  But if you really do want to acquire German citizenship then I would require that you do the following: for men, put on a kippah and walk the streets of German cities, say Berlin for example.  Or for both men and women wear some identifying clothing that makes gentiles think that you are Jewish, whether you are or not.  If you come out of that experience with no problems, etc. then fine become a German citizen if that is what you want.  As my father would say "Gain und zay gezint". 

Question about obtaining Death Records from St. Petersburg

stephen cohen
 

I was able to obtain a photograph of the headstone of my great great
grandmother, Rebecca Pinchuk, from the Jewish Cemetery in St.
Petersburg. Per the headstone, she died in 1933. I was wondering if
anyone knew if there are surviving death records for this time in St.
Petersburg. If so, would anyone know how to go about obtaining a
copy. Is there a Russian archive in St. Petersburg to contact?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Stephen Cohen

I think David Rosen may have it!   Faigele/Feigele could easily have been written by a non-Jewish clerk as Fikela…

Hi Ruben,
I have just returned from Rzeszow where I spent time at the records office as I am looking for information on my paternal family...KARPF.
I have plenty of information on my maternal side which was Nieder/Koretz....a complete family tree and addresses etc. but very little on my Father's side.
Any help would be appreciated.
I have photos and information from this visit if anyone requires.

Constantinople 1890's-Egypt #advice

nardir4@...
 

My Grandmother Louise (bernhardson,bernardson,bernhardt,berman??) was born in then
Constantinople into a family of merchants.The family apparently also had interests in a water bottling plant in Egypt.or so we were told.

Her mother Susan Sarah (Barris,Beinich??) died in 1894 giving birth to her 3rd child Isadore.

Her father Abraham came from Roumania as a 1 month old baby in 1858.

his (Abraham’s) parents were Moses Ber and Nahame.

My grandmother went to the once prestigious German School in Constantinople.

She had a cousin also named Louise about the same age who later married a

Moritz Kremer,a jeweler in Cairo.There was a common uncle of the Louises named Ignatz also in Cairo.Louise Kremer had 6 children,the eldest named Emmanuel.

After my grandmothers mothers death the family moved to Thessalonika,and then to London about 1896

My grandmothers mtdna Haplogroup is N1b1b1.

If there is anyone out there that can recognise even the smallest detail in this sketchy outline(which is all we know) I would be ever so grateful to hear from you.

Deep ancestry of the Maharal

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

On Geni, I am proposing to sever the deep ancestry of the Maharal, which appears to be invented and without any reasonable source. I am sure people will be upset, but if you disagree, please follow the discussion at https://www.geni.com/discussions/194554 and add some sources to the profiles.

To be clear, I am proposing to sever the Maharal's maternal grandfather Chaim from his father.

DNA

Rosalind Finkelstein
 

I had my DNA tested at My Heritage and was informed that I am a close match to Joan G.  I got in touch with her as I don’t know who she is.  She is Jewish but wouldn’t tell me anything about herself or her family.  I have tried to research her but I can’t even find her birth certificate which leads me to think she may have been adopted.  She has New York roots but adoption records in New York are sealed.  I sent a letter to her nephew but haven’t heard back from him.

I don’t want to cause  trauma for anyone nor am I looking for new cousins.  All I want to know is how we are related.  I have no first cousins as my father’s immediate family died in the Holocaust and my mother had one brother who never married.  Anyone who might be able to give me information is no longer alive. 

I would appreciate  any help or suggestions anyone may offer.  Thanks in advance.

Hi Ruben,

Please look up any TUCHFELDs for me. I am likely related to all with this surname in Rzeszow. Thank you!

Can you tell me what your source is or anything about it? I am on the board of Gesher Galicia and we are always interested in new sources of information. We are not aware of any Rzeszow Jewish records before 1842. Thank you!

Descendants of SCHLAMA/SHLOMO/SALOMON TEICHER #Galicia #advice #Help #Poland #Austria-Czech

Leah and Eli Teicher
 

Dear Genners,
SCHLAMA TEICHER/SCHLOMO/SALOMON TEICHER (1870-1932) lived and died in RUDNIK nad Sanem 
or in ZALUCE both  in Galicia, Poland.His parents CHUNE TEICHER and GITTEL KRAMER .
All this data is from JRI Poland. CHUNE and GITTEL  were also the parents of my husband's paternal grandfather.

It will be braking a wall finding his descendants.

The main Holocaust archives were searched carefully, so a the data provided in JG, Gesher Galicia and Bad Arolsen Archive.
If there are descendants they might be 2nd cousins to my husband, since there is no extended family.

Any idea what to do? How to find them?
Thanks,
Leah Teicher
