Seeking OTTO HIRSCH of Frankfurt aM #germany

Anne Webber <annewebber@...>
 

I am seeking information on Otto HIRSCH and his family of Frankfurt am
Main, and his descendants. Otto Hirsch's office was in
Neue Mainzerstrasse Frankfurt in the early 1930s. His home was in
Wohlerstrasse. He was a banker, and art collector, who died in April
1935. Can anyone tell me more about him, and his family, or put me in
touch with any relatives? Many thanks

Anne Webber London, England <annewebber@...>

GORDON #general

HENKEN9@...
 

Genners,

Earlier today I posted a message concerning my gf's 1906 arrival at Ellis
Island and subsequent meeting with a possible uncle, Michel GORDON of
East Broadway in Manhattan. This is my first encounter with the name in
conjunction with my family.

I inherited my gm's very unorganized personal phone book, which appears to
have been put together in the late 1930's-40's. It contains 3 references
to GORDON's.One was a J. GORDON on West 83rd St. in Manhattan. The other
two, without initials, are both in Brooklyn; one on 21st. Ave., another on
85th St. If any of these ring a bell, please let me know.

I haven't checked yet, but I suspect these may not be found in the 1930
census and I think they may be too late for city directories. Phone
directories may be an option when I have the chance.

Please respond privately.

Stephen Morse's EIDB websites #general

Cindy Gallard <dg2286@...>
 

I, too, was deeply disappointed by the Ellis Island Foundation's
actions against Stephen Morse's EIDB websites. Stephen Morse's website
was consistent with the Foundations' original intentions of creating the
database to make the information readily available to all interested
parties as it was very helpful in finding otherwise unobtainable
information. I do not know if they are open to reconsider their actions,
but I e-mailed them expressing my disappointment and hopes that they
would allow the website to return.

I have already searched in a number of sources, without success.

If we are researching a name, in my case Lifschits, which is listed below
in one of its variations, , what is the next step to determine if it is
worth pursuing?

Thanks,

Volunteers Needed for Chernigov Gubernya Project #ukraine

SJHogarth <sjhogarth@...>
 

After Yom Kippur we would like to get working on what needs to be done
to gather info for a Chernigov Gubernya database. In order to do so we
need the help of a few Sig members who are willing to volunteer their
time and ideas to get this project off the ground. Once we get organized
more volunteers will be needed to carry out the information gathering
and research. If you are interested in participating in this project
please contact me at mailto: sjhogarth@...

I look forward to working with you in developing an on-line database
that provides easier access to our family histories.

A Healthy and Happy New Year to All

The butler's cousins #dna

howard sachs <hfsachs@...>
 

DNA report >from Oxford on my matrilineal line says I'm
a descendant of "Helena" (apparently technically
described as being in the H haplogroup). This is
consistent with Jerusalem Post report in JUne of a
study indicating that (perhaps 1800 years ago) a
typical Jewish family on the fringes of Europe
consisted of a Semitic male and a spouse of local
Diaspora origin. I understand Houston has similar
indications of genetic origins. According to "Seven
Daughters of Eve" this makes me a "cousin" of
Cuthbert,the butler at the Longleat estate (whose
owner also owns caves where Cheshire Man--also an H
descendant--was found). I hope more reports will be
coming in on these relationships.Keep tuned for
Houston. Howard Sachs
